Your camcorder is equipped with a Carl Zeiss lens, which was developed jointly by Carl Zeiss, in Germany, and Sony Corporation, and produces superior images. It adopts the MTF measurement system for video cameras and offers a quality typical of a Carl Zeiss lens. Also, the lens for your camcorder is T*-coated to suppress unwanted reections and faithfully reproduce colors. MTF= Modulation Transfer Function. The number value indicates the amount of light from a subject coming into the lens.
Before starting to record, test the recording function to make sure the picture and sound are recorded without any problems. Compensation for the contents of recordings cannot be provided, even if recording or playback is not possible due to a malfunction of the camcorder, storage media, etc. TV color systems differ depending on the countries/regions. To view your recordings on a TV, you need an NTSC system-based TV.

When you want to record a subject at close range, move the power zoom lever to W (wide angle), then adjust the focus. The minimum distance required between your camcorder and the subject to get a sharp focus is about 1 cm (about 1/2 in.) for wide angle and about 80 cm (about 2 5/8 feet) for telephoto. You can also adjust the focus manually using the CAM CTRL dial (p. 61).
You can select and adjust the focal point to aim it at a subject not located in the center of the screen.
EXP.FOCUS (Expanded focus)
When you set the POWER switch to CAMERA-MEMORY and [EXP.FOCUS] to [ON], you can enlarge the picture displayed on the LCD screen to 2 times bigger. This function makes it easier to adjust the focus.

The redeye reduction may not produce the desired effect due to individual differences and other conditions.
This is useful to shoot small subjects, such as owers or insects. You can blur away backgrounds and the subject stands out clearer. When you set [TELE MACRO] to [ON] ( ), the zoom (p. 24) moves to the top of the T (Telephoto) side automatically and allows for recording subjects at a close distance, down to about 50 cm (19 3/4 in.).
To cancel, touch [OFF], or zoom to wideangle (W side).
When recording a distant subject, it may difcult to focus on and take time for focusing. Adjust the focus manually ([FOCUS], p. 42) when it is hard to focus automatically.

You can also adjust the setting manually using the CAM CTRL dial (p. 23).
You can select whether to play back audio recorded using other devices with dual sound or stereo sound.
EXT SUR MIC (External surround microphone)
You can enjoy 5.1ch surround sound by following the procedure below, using an optional microphone and a Sony VAIO series personal computer. Recording Attach the ECM-HQP1 microphone (optional) to your camcorder and make a recording. Record four audio channels (front-left, front-right, rear-left, and rear-right) simultaneously. Creating DVD Create a DVD compliant with 5.1ch surround sound playback on a Sony VAIO series personal computer using Click to DVD (Ver.2.0 or later). Playback Play back the created DVD on the 5.1ch home theater system.
Connect the ECM-HQP1 microphone (optional) to the Active Interface Shoe. Refer to the manual of the microphone for details. Select the sound setting.
Sound is recorded in the [STEREO] setting if the microphone is not connected, even if another setting is selected. Sound is recorded in the 12-bit mode in [4CH MIC]. If [AUDIO MODE] has been set to [16BIT( )], it automatically switches to the 12-bit mode. The audio mode setting returns to the previous settings if you change the setting from [4CH MIC] to [WIDE STEREO] or [STEREO]. You can check the recorded front and rear sound after recording ([AUDIO MIX], p.54). Your camcorder cannot output 5.1ch surround sound. For creating a 5.1ch surround sound compliant DVD, you need software and a device that supports this function. In the case of Sony products, a VAIO series personal computer preinstalled with Click to DVD (Ver.2.0 or later) supports this function. Some application software bundled with VAIO does not allow for 4CH MIC recording signal.
