About interval recording

When the shutter button is pressed fully, interval recording will start and the camera 

automatically takes pictures.

 •During recording standby, the camera turns off automatically when no operation is 

performed for a preset interval. At the time to start recording or after the interval of 

recording time, the camera turns on automatically and the lens moves to the zoom 

position (focal length) to take a picture. (Do not attach the lens cap during recording 

standby.)

 •When the camera ON/OFF switch is set to [OFF], interval recording will end. To 

continue interval recording, leave the camera ON/OFF switch to [ON].
