Page 68

Slow & Fast Motion Recording The camera can record using a progressive frame rate (shooting frame rate) that is different from the playback frame rate... Recording a clip at a higher frame rate than the [Frame Rate] setting will result in a slow motion effect during playback... Conversely, a lower frame rate will result in a fast motion effect... In most cases, sound is not recorded when slow & fast motion recording is activated... However, sound will be recorded if the main recording format is set to [XF-AVC (CFast)] and the shooting frame rate is the same as the frame rate in the video configuration... For details about slow & fast motion recording when using a CDX-36150 Recorder docked with the camera, refer to Recording with the CDX-36150 Recorder (A 206)...

Page 69

Page 70

The shooting frame rate cannot be changed while recording... The time code signal will not be output from the TIME CODE IN/OUT terminal or MON... terminals... For slower shooting frame rates, it may take a few seconds to stop recording... If the system frequency is changed, slow & fast motion recording will be canceled and the shooting frame rate

Page 71

Simultaneous Sub Recordings You can record the same scene as the main recording also as a sub recording a secondary recording with a lower video configuration and smaller file sizes... For example, you can record XF-AVC clips on a CFast card or XF-AVC Proxy clips on the SD card while the camera records or outputs RAW data, or record XF-AVC Proxy clips on the SD card while using the CFast card for the main recording... The video configuration of XF-AVC (Intra) sub recordings on the CFast card can be selected but that of XF-AVC Proxy sub recordings on the SD card cannot be changed... XF-AVC Proxy clips have a video configuration of 2K with YCbCr 4:2:0, 8-bit color sampling and a bit rate of 24 Mbps or 35 Mbps*, which makes them very convenient for offline editing... Additionally, by specifying a LUT, you can obtain XF-AVC Proxy clips with different color space/gamma characteristics from those of the main recording... * Determined automatically depending on the video configuration of the main recording...

Page 72

If the main recording stops during simultaneous recording, the sub recording will stop as well... Sub recording clips are not recorded during slow & fast motion recording... During relay recording, if the camera switches from recording on one CFast card to the other (main recording),
