# [MIC SETUP] # desired setting


Sound is recorded with 5.1 ch surround microphone.


Sound is recorded with 5.1 ch surround microphone changing 
the directionality in conjunction with the zoom operation. 
Sounds near the front of the unit are recorded more clearly if 
you zoom in (close-up) and surrounding sounds are recorded 
more realistically if you zoom out (wide angle).


The forward sound is recorded more clearly by enhancing the 
directionality toward the center for the 5.1 ch surround 


Sound from two directions is recorded in 2 ch by forward-facing 
stereo microphones.
