Main Features
Supports Multiple Coding and File
Formats
Introduction
This camera recorder supports major file formats
such as FinalCutPro™ native “MOV”,
XDCAMEX™ compatible “MP4”, and AVCHDcompatible “MTS”. It also supports high-definition
picture quality of 35 Mbps in MPEG-2 and 28 Mbps
in AVCHD. In addition, for H.264, the “High
Definition” mode (50 Mbps) captures fast-moving
subjects vividly in almost block noise-free high
resolution.
Flexible Dual SD Card Slot
Two card slots for the economic and operable
“SDHC/SDXC memory cards” are available for
your recording media. With the dual SD card slots,
you can perform seamless and continuous
recording for long hours with “Relay Recording”,
create clips of the same content at the same time
with “Dual Recording”, and take stills on one card
while pressing start/stop during simultaneous
recording with “Backup Recording”.
The mobile and efficient workflow supports various
situations and allows you to record memorable
moments from ENG (Electronic News Gathering)
to bridal and events shooting.
Continuous Clip Recording Convenient
for File Management and Editing
Several footage shootings from “the start till the end
of recording” can be consolidated and recorded
under one file in the SD card. This reduces the
amount of workload taken to edit wedding
ceremonies and other long-hour event shootings.
Auto Focus and Other Various Shooting
Assist Functions
When using auto focus and expanded focus, the
Focus/Zoom ring can be forcibly set to Focus mode
to further enhance assistance during shooting.

recording to the 2 slots at different timings, and
backup recording can only be performed on this
camera recorder.
(A P106 [ Slot Mode ] )
0 You can record without worrying about missing
the important scenes by setting slot B to be

Shooting
Caution :
0 To perform recording in the Dual Rec mode, it is
recommended that you start recording by
making use of two cards with the same capacity
and from the formatted state.
0 You can combine the use of the Dual Rec mode
with a special recording mode. While in the Dual
Rec mode, you can also set [Rec Mode] to
“Normal”, “Pre Rec”, “Interval Rec”, or “Frame
Rec”.
(A P71 [Special Recording] )
0 When both slots are inserted with recordable
cards, the Dual Rec (simultaneous recording)
operation can be performed. If a recordable
media is only inserted in one of the slots, you can
also start recording with one card.
0 In the Dual Rec mode, continuous recording by
switching from one slot to another cannot be
performed. Continuous recording will not be
performed if a recordable media is inserted in a
slot after recording to the other slot has started.
0 When recording to one slot is in progress with
the recorder set to the Dual Rec mode, inserting
a recordable media to the other slot does not
enable the Dual Rec operation. To perform the
Dual Rec operation, stop recording temporarily
(excluding pausing recording in the Clip
Continuous Rec mode), and start again.
0 When one of the cards is accidentally removed
while recording is in progress in the Dual Rec
mode, recording to the card in the other slot will
continue. However, repair of the accidentally
removed card by the recovery function may fail.
0 If an error occurs on one of the cards while
recording is in progress in the Dual Rec mode,
recording of the erroneous card stops, while that
of the other card continues.
0 Operations on clips recorded in the Dual Rec
mode, such as clip deletion in the Media mode
or appending of OK marks, can only be
performed on the card in the selected slot.
