Movie Image Quality

Your camera lets you select from among three image quality 

settings (HQ, Normal, LP) for movies. For best camera 

performance, use the “HQ” (High Quality) setting for movie 

recording.

Movie quality is a standard that determines the detail, 

smoothness, and clarity of the image during playback. 

Reducing image quality let’s you shoot longer, so you can 

switch to “Normal” or “LP” conserve remaining memory 

capacity if you start to run low.
