Special Scene Recording Programs

Recording in a very bright ski resort or capturing the full colors of a 
sunset or a fireworks display becomes as easy as selecting a Special 
Scene recording program. For details about the available options, refer 
to page 61.

NOTES

• [

Night]:

- Moving subjects may leave a trailing afterimage.
- Picture quality may not be as good as in other modes.
- White points may appear on the screen.
- Autofocus may not work as well as in other modes. In such case, 

adjust the focus manually.

• [

Fireworks]: 

- To avoid camcorder blur (blur due to the camcorder moving) we 

recommend using a tripod. 

- In 

 mode, slower shutter speeds are used so blur is more likely to 

occur. Stabilize the camcorder, for example, by mounting it on a 
tripod.

• [
