Sound recording
Normally, the built-in microphone will 
record monaural sound. Stereo sound 
recording is possible by connecting an 
external microphone equipped with a 
stereo mini plug (3.5mm dia.) to the 
camera’s external microphone IN 
terminal (p.16). When an external 
microphone is connected, sound 
recording will switch automatically to the 
external microphone.
[Sound rec.] options
: The sound recording level will be adjusted 
automatically. Auto level control will operate 
automatically in response to the sound level.
[Manual] : For advanced users. You can adjust the sound 
recording level to one of 64 levels. 
Select [Rec. level] and look at the level meter while 
turning the <5> dial to adjust the sound recording 
level. While looking at the peak hold indicator 
(Approx. 3 sec.), adjust so that the level meter 
sometimes lights up the “12” (-12 dB) mark on the 
right for the loudest sounds. If it exceeds “0,” the 
sound will be distorted.
[Disable] : Sound will not be recorded.
