•What is bit rate
This is the volume of data for a definite period of time, and the quality becomes higher when the
number gets bigger. This unit is using the “VBR” recording method. “VBR” is an abbreviation of
“Variable Bit Rate”, and the bit rate (volume of data for definite period of time) is changed
automatically depending on the subject to record. Therefore, the recording time is shortened when a
subject with fast movement is recorded.
It will continually keep on focusing on a subject for which the focus was once set.
•Set this function to [OFF] if you wish to fix the focus on the position where you started the motion
•The setting is fixed to [OFF] in the following case.
