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.
Useful Shooting Techniques
Squatting and Shooting at Eye Level
Holiday Season/Christmas
.
Record the happy Christmas celebration with your family!
Decorating the Tree and Preparing the Dinner
The decoration of tree and preparation of dinner are part of the joy of
Christmas. Be sure to record these happy family times!
.
o Decorating the tree
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 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
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.)
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
Recording the Christmas Party
Wedding
.
.
Create an awesome wedding video for the bride and groom!
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!
Finding the Presents
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.
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!
.
.
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.

Useful Shooting Techniques
Recording the Expressions and Comments of Guests
Capture all the good times of your domestic or overseas trips!
.
.
o Setting the shot from eye level to chest level
Travel
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.
Closing Up on the Bride's Face During the Thank You Speech
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.
The climax of the event finally comes during the bride and groom's thank you
speech and presentation of flowers. The touching words of appreciation from
the bride and tears of joy from the parents are scenes that must not be
missed.
Start by closing up on the bride's face using zoom. As the tears start to form
in the bride's eyes, continue shooting for a little longer. Then, slowly zoom
out to the wide angle to show the parents who are moved by the speech.
o Camcorder
Advanced Operation with Two Camcorders
Prepare a battery pack that is ready for double 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 4 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.
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!
o <Camcorder 1>
o Battery Pack
o AC Adapter
The JVC AC adapter supports voltages from 100 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.
o Power Plug Adapter
.
.
Closing up on the bride and groom all the 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 <Camcorder 2>
.
Recording the congratulatory messages from friends at the
same time
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.

Useful Shooting Techniques
o Battery Charger
Using Pan at the Places of Interest
.
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 the "Shooting Tips" found in 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.
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.
.
.
.
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
.
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.
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. 59)
.
Advanced Operation with Backlight Compensation
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.
When the subject’s face is in backlight or when the expression cannot be
seen clearly, the Intelligent Auto function of this unit automatically increases
its brightness for recording.
If Intelligent Auto fails to function as expected or if the brightness correction
is insufficient, you can increase the brightness by using backlight
compensation in the Manual mode.
“Setting Details” (A p. 33)
o <Without backlight compensation>
.
o Scenarios suitable for taking still images (photos)
.
o <With backlight compensation>
.
Scenarios with little movement of the subject are suitable for taking still
images.
Try to take the still images from an angle such that the surroundings can be
seen clearly.
[Examples]
0 Carousal, ferris wheel, fun bicycle rides, etc.
