SHOOTING A MOVIE

3.

With the camera pointed at the subject, press 
the shutter button.

This will shoot a Short Movie that for about four seconds, 

and then stop shooting automatically. The total length of the 

Short Movie will be eight seconds (four seconds before the 

shutter button was pressed plus four seconds after it was 

pressed). To stop movie recording, press the shutter button 

again.

IMPORTANT!

• Movie data is continually recorded and stored in a buffer 

before you press the shutter button. Keep the camera 

pointed at the subject. Then at the right moment, press the 

shutter button. When you press the shutter button, the 

remaining recording time of part two of the Short Movie 

counts down on the monitor screen.

Past Movie is similar to a normal movie, except that it captures 

about five seconds of whatever happened in front of the lens 

before the shutter button was pressed to start shooting. Past 

Movie is a great way to make sure that you never just miss that 

special moment because you press the shutter button too late.
