Make art out of time
Art Time-lapse Recording
Capture an event that takes place over the course of hours such as a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis and present it in a fraction of the time. Art Time-Lapse Recording captures still frames at preset intervals, then creates an HD file with the stills placed in sequential order. A variety of modes, including Night Time, Zooming, Panning and Reverse Playback, give you more creative options.
While shooting a video in Record Pause mode, it allows you to briefly pause the recording and then pick up right where you left off without creating a new file. This way you only have one file to work with and don’t have to merge files for editing, sharing or transferring.
Next time you record a get-together, add some fun with Shake It. Just a couple of jostles of the camcorder can randomly add one of several different digital effects, such as a posterization effect, to a scene. Shake It even works in Playback Mode, when it will embed preloaded music into your clip.
