Using the built-in microphone
This unit’s built-in microphones can be adjusted, allowing
the angles of the microphones to be changed. You can
choose clear stereo sound or wide stereo sound according to
considerations including the recording source and situation
by opening or closing the microphone pair.
Setting the mics to record a wide stereo
sound (A-B position)
Open the mics to the left and right (A-B position).
Set this way, the two microphones are spread wide to the left
and right, enabling recording with a strong stereo field that is
good for music, for example.
If you open or close the microphone pair while using the
built-in stereo microphone and the left-right setting does not
suit the angle of the microphone, a pop-up message appears
to ask whether you want to change the mic left-right setting.
