Beginner’s Guide
Squatting and Shooting at Eye Level
.
.
Basic Way to Hold a Camcorder
~ Recording Stable Images ~
This is the standard way of shooting while standing up.
Be sure to master this basic technique in order to achieve stable images.
o [Getting Ready]
Staying low is a common position to take when shooting small children.
By recording from the eye level of the child, you can capture all his cute
expressions clearly.
o [Getting Ready]
A Kneel down with your left knee while keeping your right foot on the
ground.
B Place the elbow of your right arm, which is holding the camcorder, on
your right knee.
C Hold the LCD monitor with your left hand and adjust the angle
accordingly.
A Open your feet to the width of your shoulders.
B Keep the elbow of your right arm, which is holding the camcorder, close
to your side.
C Hold the LCD monitor with your left hand and adjust the angle
accordingly.
Extending Your Hands to Shoot
~ High-Angle Shooting ~
Panning
Refer to the operating instructions found in the animation on the Detailed
User Guide.
Use this method to shoot a wide angle of view.
0
o [Getting Ready]
.
A Shoot by rotating your body instead of moving your arms while keeping
the basic way of holding a camcorder as stated above.
B Stand facing the direction where the rotation will stop.
C Twist your upper body to the direction where recording will start.
D Press the start button and record for 2 seconds, then slowly twist back
your body to face the front.
Record for another 2 seconds while facing the front, then press the
stop button.
(The 90 degrees rotation should take about 5 seconds, giving the
feeling of a slow motion.)
Extend your hand when your subject is being hidden behind a crowd of
people.
o [Getting Ready]
A Open your feet to the width of your shoulders.
B Extend your right hand and hold the camcorder over your head.
C Hold the LCD monitor with your left hand and adjust the angle
accordingly.
Caution :

Use this way of shooting only as a last resort as it is difficult to achieve
stable images.
Set to the wide angle as much as possible as the image will be prone to
camera shake.
Be considerate. Do not inconvenience the people around you.

After all preparations, it is finally the Christmas party itself. Not only should
you record the candle-blowing scene, but also the smiles of the family while
being surrounded by good food, or even the father who is slightly drunk from
champagne!
A tree is the most important thing to bring out the mood of Christmas.
Simply the scene of all family members engaging in the decorating of a fir
tree with various colorful ornaments is full of the feeling of happiness.
.
o Preparing the Dinner
For children, the greatest joy of Christmas is receiving presents the next
morning. Their expression of delight when finding a present next to their
pillow is a recording opportunity not to be missed. Get ready to shoot before
the children wake up!

Record the scenes as everyone helps to prepare the feast of the night.
You can film the mother who is cooking, the children who are helping, and
of course, the process of making a cake!

Useful Shooting Techniques
Wedding

Recording the Expressions and Comments of Guests
Discussing and Planning Before the Event
Before the day of the wedding reception, it is important to discuss with the
bride and groom about various details such as the order of the ceremony
and whether there are any entertainment programs or change of clothes. By
understanding the preferences of the bride and groom, you will be able to
shoot more appropriately.
.
o Finding out the route of entrance
The highlight of a wedding reception is the entrance of the bride and groom.
Find out which door they will enter from and the route they will take from the
person-in-charge of the wedding hall in advance. Set up the tripod at a place
where you can follow the couple using zoom without having to move around.
o Number of times and timing of clothes-changing
Find out the timing of any changing of clothes so as to capture the scene well
when the bride and groom enter again.
You can also make use the time while the bride and groom are changing to
record comments of well wishes from the guests.
Finding the Right Angle to Capture Both Bride and Groom
o Composing the picture with the groom in front and the
.
guests at the back
The main characters of a wedding are of course the bride and groom. Record
their expressions clearly during the toast, speech, entertainment programs,
and other scenes. Another recommendation is to capture the face shots of
the guests, then pan towards the groom. Picture composition containing the
crowd of guests only lacks fun, so be sure to pay attention to the shooting
angle and size.
6
You can record comments from the guest by going around asking, "Please
say a few words for the bride and groom". This can be done at the guests'
waiting room, when the bride and groom are changing, or during the
entertainment programs.
Useful Shooting Techniques
Advanced Operation with Two Camcorders
If video-editing is to be done, record using two camcorders so that a video
with varying scenes can be created. You can try asking a close friend who
has a camcorder at home. Set the borrowed camcorder on a tripod to focus
on taking close-up shots of the bride and groom. In this way, the other
camcorder can be moved around to record other scenes, enabling an
interesting video with changing scenes to be created through editing and
compilation. As most people own at least a digital camera nowadays, even
if you are really unable to find an extra camcorder, inserting still pictures to
the video at various points is also a good way to add variety. Do give it a try!
Travel
Capture all the good times of your domestic or overseas trips!

Bringing the Necessary Equipment
The necessary things to bring on a trip depends on your traveling purpose
and the destination. For overseas trips in particular, you have to think about
what to bring in accordance to the local conditions. Here are some
suggestions for your consideration.
.
o Camcorder
o <Camcorder 2>
Recording the congratulatory messages from friends at the
same time
Think about how many hours of shooting you will usually perform in a day.
Be sure to prepare enough recording medium especially for long overseas
trips.
If you are recording in SD cards, get ready the sufficient number of cards,
including some for backup.
o Battery Pack
Prepare a battery pack that is ready for three times the expected recording
time in a day. For example, if you plan to record for 2 hours a day, prepare
a battery pack that is ready for 6 hours (actual recording time).
For a day trip, you can prepare a battery with low capacity but for a long trip,
do prepare a few batteries with high capacities.
o AC Adapter
o Power Plug Adapter
.
.
The JVC AC adapter supports voltages from 110 V to 240 V, and hence can
be used anywhere in the world.
Bring along the adapter if you are traveling for a long time. Charge the battery
pack while sleeping so that you can record with full battery power the next
day.
The shape of the power plug varies according to countries. Be sure to check
the shape of the power plug beforehand, and bring the appropriate power
plug adapter.
“Charging the Battery Pack Overseas” (A p. 21)
7
Useful Shooting Techniques
o Battery Charger
Using Pan at the Places of Interest
Recording cannot be performed when an AC adapter is connected to the
camcorder for battery charging.
You can bring an additional battery charger to charge battery packs if you
plan to use the camcorder for recording at night. You can also charge
multiple battery packs by using both the battery charger and this camcorder
at the same time.
.
.
Tourists spots with beautiful scenery or historical sites are places that you
would certainly want to record. To capture the magnificence of a scene which
cannot be fitted into a single frame, try the panning technique. Refer to
“Shooting Tips” found in the “Beginner’s Guide” on this website on how to
use panning effectively. In addition, you may also like to take a shot of the
signs or monuments that can often be found at the tourist spots.
.
.
o Tripod
A tripod is an essential item to take stable images. Select an appropriate
tripod in accordance to your purpose and style of traveling, such as a
compact one to be used on a table or one that is at least 1 m tall.
Recording the Excitement Before Departure
.
.
It may be a little abrupt to start your travel video at the destination suddenly.
Record also the preparations prior to departure if it is a family trip, or the time
when everyone is gathered at the meeting place if you are traveling with your
friends. For overseas trips, taking a shot of the signs and displays at the
airport of the flight you are taking may be useful for future reference.

Showing Everyone Having a Good Time
When taking a video, it is rather dull to shoot only the scenery or historical
sites. Talk about your feelings while recording the breath-taking scenery of
an attraction so that it will be an interesting scene to view later.

Taking Videos or Still Images According to the Attraction
You may choose to take videos all the time. However, you may want to take
some still images too.
The following section explains the scenarios suitable for taking videos or still
images.
Capturing the Best Moment in a Video as a Still Image
Shots with the eyes closed are often taken by accident. To reduce such
mistakes, make use of the function to capture still images from videos.
As videos are actually continuous recording of 60 still images within 1 minute,
using this function allows you to select the best moment and save it as a still
image.
“Capturing a Still Image in the Video During Playback” (A p. 83)
.
.
o Scenarios suitable for taking videos
Videos with no waving of hands nor laughter are not only dull when you view
them later, but also put the capability of the audio-recording function of the
camcorder to a waste. When recording, induce more reactions by
enthusiastically waving your hands or shouting out "Is it fun?" and the like.
Scenarios with changes in body movement are suitable for taking videos.
This includes situations where there are rapid changes in facial expressions
or voices of surprise and delight.
*Some amusement parks do not allow passengers to perform any recording.
Be sure to check beforehand.
[Examples]
0 Merry-go-round, go kart, coffee cup, etc.

Leaving the LCD monitor open makes it easier to receive radio waves.
Therefore, it is recommended to open the LCD monitor when using the
Wi-Fi function.
Security of Wireless LAN
An advantage of wireless LAN is that instead of using a LAN cable, it
transmits information using radio waves, thus enabling LAN connection
to be established within the area covered by the radio waves. However,
as radio waves penetrate through objects (such as walls) within the range
that they cover, security issues, such as interception of transmission or
illegal access, may arise if security settings are not configured.
Before you connect to the network in a wireless LAN environment, read
through the instruction manual for the wireless LAN device in use, and
configure the security settings accordingly. Failure to do so may increase
the risk of personal information being intercepted, such as user names,
passwords, and the content of your mails, or illegal access to the network.
Due to the design of wireless LAN, note that security may be breached by
unusual or unforeseeable means.
For more details on wireless LAN and network security, please consult the
manufacturer of your wireless LAN device.
JVC shall not be liable for any security issues, troubles, damages or losses
arising from the use of this feature.

Using this product near the above equipment may cause radio wave
interference, and result in communication failure or a drop in communication
speed. In this case, turn off the power of devices that are not in use.
0
o Avoid using this product near a TV or radio set.
TV or radio sets make use of a radio wave frequency bandwidth that is
different from that of Wi-Fi, and therefore has no effect on communication
by this product or the TV/radio set.
However, when a TV/radio set is placed close to a Wi-Fi product,
electromagnetic waves emitted by the Wi-Fi product may cause noise to
occur in the sound or images of the TV/radio.
0 Communication may not be carried out properly near radio equipment or
broadcasting stations. In this case, change the location accordingly.
o Radio signals are unable to penetrate through reinforced
steel, metal, or concrete.
The radio waves used by this product are unable to penetrate through
reinforced steel, metal, or concrete materials.
It may difficult for communication to be established if two rooms or floors are
separated by these materials.
*Communication may also get weaker when there are human subjects or
parts of the body in between the Wi-Fi devices.
o Do not connect to wireless networks that you do not have
authorization for.
Once connected, it may be considered as unauthorized access and legal
actions can be taken against you.
131
Using Wi-Fi (GZ-EX355/GZ-EX310)
