Recording Movies


• The higher the frame rate (speed), the more lighting is required when shooting. 

When shooting a high speed movie, shoot in a well-lit environment.

• When recording certain types of movies, the image that appears on the monitor 

screen may be smaller than normal. When recording a high speed movie, there are 
black bands along the top, bottom, left, and right of the screen.

• When recording a high speed movie, light source flicker can cause horizontal 

bands to appear in the image. This does not indicate malfunction of the camera.

• Monitor screen content switching is disabled during high speed movie recording.

Prerecord (Movie) maintains a pre-recording of approximately five seconds of action 
(approximately two seconds for High Speed Movie). When you start real-time 
recording, the pre-recorded content is stored followed by the real-time recording, to 
help make sure you do not miss anything by being late pressing the record button.
