Quick tips:

  • Recording Standard: Press the Home button and select Recording Standard (a.k.a. file type) from the touch panel, then select either AVCHD or MP4. AVCHD is the default, and produces the highest quality video, but requires editing software for viewing and sharing. MP4 mode is compressed, and produces files that are immediately viewable and shareable, but recording time is limited to 30 minutes. We recommend MP4 mode for new users.

  • Headphones: If you are using headphones to monitor your audio while recording, you must change the audio output setting. Home button > (wrench icon) > Audio Output > Headphones

  • Remote: If you are using the wireless remote control, you must turn this feature on in the camera. Home button > Other Settings > (wrench icon) > Wireless remote > On
