Record movies with sound.

  1. Press t to start recording.

    A recording indicator (V) and the time remaining are displayed while recording is in progress.

  2. To end recording, press the t button again. Recording ends automatically when the maximum length is reached or the memory card is full.

Using an External Microphone

Sound can be recorded with external microphones that connect using jacks 2.5 mm in diameter; microphones that require bus power cannot be used. See the microphone manual for details.

Use a memory card with a UHS speed class of 3 or better when recording movies.

Touch zoom is not available during movie recording.

The area recorded when [ON] is selected for W[DIGITAL IMAGE STABILIZER] is smaller than that shown in the monitor.

Sound is recorded via the built-in microphone or an optional external microphone. Do not cover the microphone during recording. Note that the microphone may pick up lens noise and other sounds made by the camera during recording.

Vertical or horizontal streaks may appear in movies containing very bright subjects. This is normal and does not indicate a malfunction.

The indicator lamp lights while recording is in progress. During recording, you can change exposure compensation by up to ±2 EV and adjust zoom using the zoom ring on the lens (if available).

Recording may be unavailable at some settings, while in other cases settings may not apply during recording.

Adjusting Movie Settings

Adjust movie settings in the W[MOVIE SET-UP] menu.

The movie type, frame size, and frame rate can be selected using W[MOVIE SET-UP] > [MOVIE MODE].

The AF-area mode for movie recording is selected using W[MOVIE SET-UP] > [AF MODE]; choose from [MULTI] and [AREA].

Focus mode is selected using W[MOVIE SET-UP] > [FOCUS MODE]; for continuous focus adjustment, select [CONTINUOUS AF] or choose [SINGLE AF] and enable Intelligent Face Detection. Intelligent Face Detection is not available in manual focus mode.

Depth of Field

Manual aperture adjustment is available in shooting modes [A] and [M]; adjust aperture before recording begins. Choose low f-numbers to soften background details. The effect can be heightened by increasing the distance between your subject and the background.
