Recording Video and Taking Photos

This section explains the recording basics. Before you begin recording clips*, make a test recording first to check 
if the camcorder operates correctly. Record a 4K clip (on the CFast card) at 305 Mbps (frame rate of 29.97P or 
23.98P) for approximately 5 minutes and an HD clip (on the SD card) at 50 Mbps (frame rate of 59.94P) for 
approximately 15 minutes. Should the camcorder fail to operate correctly, refer to 

Troubleshooting

 (

A 146).

* “Clip” refers to a single movie unit recorded with a single recording operation.
