ª To cancel Quick Start
When Quick Start is ON the battery power is still being consumed, even when the LCD Monitor and the Viewfinder are closed. The Camcorder will resume recording/pause mode about 1.7 seconds after the LCD Monitor or the Viewfinder is reopened. ≥Please note in Quick Start Mode approximately half the pause recording power is being consumed. Using Quick Start Mode will reduce the battery recording/playback time. ≥This is only activated in the following cases. ≥While using the battery A tape is inserted, while the Tape Recording Mode is set. ≥While using the AC adaptor Quick Start can be used even if a tape is not inserted.
≥Set to Tape Recording Mode.
1 Set [SETUP] >> [QUICK START] >> [ON]. (-20-)
2 Close the LCD monitor and retract the viewfinder while the mode dial is set to Tape Recording Mode.
1 Set [SETUP] >> [QUICK START] >> [OFF]. (-20-) ≥The status indicator goes off and the power turns off if the mode dial is set to OFF while the unit is in quick start standby mode. ≥If the standby continues for approx. 30 minutes, then the Status indicator will go off and the Camcorder will be completely turned off.
≥In the following cases, quick start is canceled and the power turns off. ≥When the Mode dial is moved. ≥When the battery or AC adaptor is removed. ≥When the tape is removed while using the battery in Tape Recording Mode. ≥When the Camcorder is quick-started with the white balance on automatic, it may take some time until the white balance is adjusted if the scene being recorded has a light source different from the scene last recorded. (When the MagicPix function is used, however, the white balance of the scene last recorded is retained.) ≥If the power is turned on in quick start standby mode, the zoom magnification becomes 2t and the picture size may differ from what it was before quick start standby mode. ≥If [POWER SAVE] (-24-) is set to [5 MINUTES] and the unit automatically goes into quick start standby mode, close the LCD monitor and retract the viewfinder and then open the LCD monitor or extend the viewfinder again.
≥The Status indicator lights green and the unit goes into quick start standby mode. ≥The Camcorder will not go into quick start standby mode unless the LCD monitor is closed and the viewfinder is retracted.
3 Open the LCD monitor or extend the Viewfinder.
≥The status indicator lights red and the Camcorder is put into recording pause approx. 1.7 seconds after it is turned on.
