∫ Charging Time and Maximum Time for
Continuous Recording
A Charging Time for a Full Charge
B Maximum Continuous Recording Time
≥“1 h 10 min.” stands for “1 hour and 10 minutes”.
≥The Battery Model CGR-V14 is supplied.
≥The times shown in the above chart are approximations. The
figures in parentheses show the recording time when using the
LCD Monitor.
Maximum Continuous Recording Time means the duration of
continuous recording performed at an ambient temperature of
25xC and 60% relative humidity. In actual recording, however,
the use of the zoom and other functions increases the power
consumption, and higher or lower temperatures reduce the
Battery’s ability to generate electricity.Therefore, the actual
recording time per Battery may be approximately 30%–50%
shorter than listed above.

Using the LCD Monitor
Improved LCD backlight transmission makes the picture extra
bright. In addition, special coating of the LCD’s surface diffuses
the light from outside to minimize light reflection, so the picture
has vivid colours and is easy to see.
1 Slide the [3OPEN] Lever to the left and
simultaneously open the LCD Monitor in the
direction of the arrow approximately 90°.
Closing the LCD Monitor
Turn the LCD Monitor back toward the Movie Camera body until
it locks with a click.
≥Return the LCD Monitor to its vertical position before closing it.
Also, make sure that the Cassette Compartment is securely
closed before closing the LCD Monitor.
≥Opening the LCD Monitor automatically turns the Finder off.
However, when you turn the LCD Monitor so that is faces
forward, the Finder turns on again.
≥When the Movie Camera is very cold when turning it on, the
picture on the LCD Monitor is darker than normally. However,
as it reaches normal temperature, it regains its normal
brightness.
≥To remove fingerprints, wipe the LCD Monitor with a soft cloth.
≥Do not expose the LCD Monitor to direct sunlight.When
sunlight falls onto the LCD Monitor, it may be difficult to view
the picture.
Extremely high precision technology is employed to
produce the LCD Monitor. The result is more than
99.99% active pixels with a mere 0.01% of the pixels
inactive or always lit. However, this is not a malfunction
and does not affect the recorded picture.

∫ Preventing Accidental Erasure of Recordings
≥Recording on a previously recorded cassette erases the
existing scenes and sound.
≥To protect important recordings against accidental erasure,
use a screwdriver to break out the tab 3 on the cassette
(some cassettes have sliding-type tabs).
≥To be able to record again on a protected cassette, firmly
cover the hole where the tab was with two layers of adhesive
tape 4.

Confirming the Remaining Tape Time
During recording and playback, the Remaining Tape Time
Indication 3 is automatically displayed, so you always know
how much time you have left on the cassette. However, to
ensure correct display of the remaining tape time, the tape
length of the cassette being used must be set correctly on the
Movie Camera.
≥When recording or playback starts, the Tape Length Indication
disappears, and in its place the [R] Indication 3 flashes while
the remaining tape time is being calculated. A few seconds
later, the Remaining Tape Time Indication appears. ([R] means
Remaining.)
≥When the remaining tape time is less than 2 minutes, the [R]
Indication and the Remaining Tape Time Indication start to
flash.
When you use a cassette bearing the [P] mark 4 or other
special types of cassettes, the Remaining Tape Time Indication
may not be very precise.

Adjusting the Finder
Before using the Finder, adjust it to your eyesight so that the
indications in the Finder are clear and easy to read.
1 Set the [CAMERA/OFF/VCR] Switch to
[CAMERA] or [VCR].
≥Turn the switch while pressing the button 1.
2 If necessary, adjust the angle of the Finder by
tilting it upward.
3 Adjust by turning the Eyepiece Corrector
Lever.
Never aim the Movie Camera with its Finder or Lens directly at
the sun; this could damage internal parts of the unit. 2
If sunlight or other strong light enters the Finder, sparkling noise
occurs on the Finder screen. 3 If you block off the light, this
phenomenon disappears after a few minutes and does not affect
the recorded picture.
If a subject with strong contrast or a menu is displayed in the
Finder, a ghost image may remain temporarily. 4 However, this
is not a malfunction and does not affect the recorded picture.
Adjusting the Grip Belt
Adjust the length of the Grip Belt so that you can easily press
the Recording Start/Stop Button 5 with your thumb and push
the [W/T] Zoom Lever 6 with your index or middle finger.
Attaching the Lens Cap
Attach the shorter loop of the Lens Cap Cord to the Grip Belt.
7
You can attach the Lens Cap to the Lens Cap Holder on the
Grip Belt 8.

Zooming In/Out
Recording close-ups of your subjects and recording wide-angle
shots add special effects to your videos.
1 To record a wider view (Zooming-out):
Push the [W/T] Zoom Lever toward [W].
To enlarge your subject (Zooming-in):
Push the [W/T] Zoom Lever toward [T].
≥The Zoom Magnification Indication appears for a few
seconds.
≥The further you push the [W/T] Zoom Lever toward [W] or [T],
the faster the zooming speed becomes.
≥In the maximum telephoto setting (when you have zoomed in),
precise focusing is only possible for subjects that are more
than 1.8 m from the lens.
Recording Extra Close-up Shots of Small
Subjects (Macro Close-up Function)
When the zoom magnification is 1k, the Movie Camera can
focus on subjects down to a distance of approximately 5 mm
between lens and subject. This allows recording very small
subjects such as insects.
≥When using the Macro Close-up Function, we recommend that
you use the IR/Video DC Light (optional), etc. rather than the 0
Lux Night View Function to brighten up the scene.

TBC (Time Base Corrector) Function
Playback of certain cassettes can cause slight horizontal
shaking of the picture or other distortion. To minimise such
distortion and ensure a stable playback picture, this Movie
Camera is equipped with the TBC Function. This function is
automatically activated within a few seconds after playback has
started, and the [TBC] Indication appears.
Cancelling the TBC Function
With certain cassettes, however, the TBC Function could cause
slight vertical shaking or other distortion in the playback picture.
In this case, first try to adjust the tracking (l 64). If this does
not improve the picture, cancel the TBC Function by keeping
the [TBC] Button pressed until the [TBC] Indication disappears.
If you want to turn the TBC Function on again, press the [TBC]
Button for a few seconds until the [TBC] Indication reappears.
Even if you cancel the TBC Function, it is automatically turned
back on when you switch the Movie Camera from the Camera
Mode to the VCR Mode.
∫ In the Following Cases, the TBC Function Does
Not Work:
≥In the Cue, Review or Still Playback Mode
≥When using the Camera Search or Recording Check Function
≥When adjusting the tracking
≥When playing back an unrecorded part on the tape
When you play back a cassette with stretched, shrunk or
otherwise damaged tape, the TBC Function does not work
correctly (it may repeatedly turn on and off). In this case, cancel
the TBC Function.

∫ In the Following Recording Situations, the
Motion Sensor May Not Work Correctly:
≥A white wall or another single-colour background behind the
subject.
≥A subject with horizontal, vertical or oblique stripes.
≥Sudden changes in the surrounding brightness.
≥Exposure of the Movie Camera to slight shocks or vibration.
≥Extremely slow or fast movement of the subject.
≥Very little movement of the subject.
≥Recording in a dimly lit place. (The [MOTION SENSOR]
Indication flashes.)
≥A very small subject.
≥Movement of the subject near the edge of the picture.
≥A background with horizontal or vertical stripes.
≥To prevent accidental recording start caused by Movie Camera
movement, the Movie Camera should be mounted on a tripod
or be otherwise secured in a very stable position.
≥Although you can select a digital effect on the
[DIGITAL EFFECT] Sub-Menu when [MOTION SENSOR] on
the [CAMERA SETUP] Sub-Menu is set to [ON], the Motion
Sensor Function has priority and the selected digital effect is
automatically cancelled.
≥When [MOTION SENSOR] on the [CAMERA SETUP] Sub-
Menu is set to [ON], it is not possible to manually start
recording by pressing the Recording Start/Stop Button or to
activate the Recording Check or Camera Search Function.
≥When you use the AC Adaptor to power the Movie Camera,
the Motion Sensor Function Stand-by Mode will continue when
no movement is detected in the picture, even when the tape
has reached the end during recording.
≥To ensure correct functioning of the Motion Sensor Function,
the moving subject should be quite large in the picture.
Therefore, when you have zoomed the lens to the maximum
wide-angle position, the distance between lens and subject
should preferably be within about 2 metres. For subjects at
larger distances, be sure to zoom in accordingly.
≥The Movie Camera requires time to set up before recording
starts.Therefore, the beginning of movement is not recorded.
≥If there is a power interruption, the Motion Sensor Function is
cancelled.

Recording in Dark Places without Any
Illumination (0 Lux Night View Function)
This function is convenient when you want to record at night in
places without any illumination, for example for observing the
behaviour of nocturnal animals, etc. In this mode, the Movie
Camera emits infrared rays which makes it possible to record
subjects that are invisible to the naked eye.
1 Set the [0 LUX OFF/ON] Switch to [ON] to
make the [0LUX] Indication appear.
≥The built-in Infra-red Beam Emitters 1 light. Be careful
not to cover them with your hand when recording.
≥Do not use the 0 Lux Night View Function in brightly lit places
and never aim the Movie Camera against the sun, as this
could cause irreparable damage.
≥The playback picture of scenes recorded with the
0 Lux Night View Function will be in black and white.
≥If you change the setting of the [0 LUX OFF/ON] Switch during
recording, a switching noise is also recorded.
≥When recording with the 0 Lux Night View Function, it is not
possible to adjust the white balance manually or to cancel the
manually adjusted white balance setting.
≥It is not possible to use any of the Programme AE Modes
when the 0 Lux Night View Mode is activated.
≥When using the 0 Lux Night View Function, the subject should
be within 3 metres from the Movie Camera.
≥When the automatic focusing is not precise, adjust the focus
manually.
≥As the iris is fully opened in the 0 Lux Night View Mode,
subjects in white or other light colours may be recorded
whitish, blurred and with weak contrast.
≥If you use the 0 Lux Night View Function together with the
Motion-Sensor-Controlled Recording Function, recording
starts automatically when the Movie Camera’s built-in Motion
Sensor detects some movement in the picture.This combined
function is convenient for easy, unattended animal observation
recordings at night.
Cancelling the 0 Lux Night View Function
Set the [0 LUX OFF/ON] Switch to [OFF] to make the [0LUX]
Indication disappear.

Colour Temperature and White Balance
Adjustment
Every light source has its own colour temperature measured in
Kelvin (K).The higher the Kelvin value, the more bluish the light;
the lower the value, the more reddish the light.The Kelvin value
is related to the tint of the light, but not directly to its brightness.
The range 1 indicated in the illustration above shows the light
sources for which this Movie Camera can provide precise white
balance adjustment and, therefore, natural colours in the
recorded pictures, when using the Full Auto Mode. For light
sources outside this range, adjust the white balance manually
(m 96). Also, additional lighting may be necessary.
