About the depth of field
The depth of field is the in focus range, measured from the distance behind a subject to the distance in front.
The depth of field can vary with the exposure (iris) value and the focal length. Lowering the F value (large
iris) reduces the depth of field. Raising the F value (smaller iris) provides a larger depth of field. Zooming in
telephoto position offers a smaller depth of field while the depth of field in wide angle position is greater.

Giving Priority to Shutter Speed AES, S
You can select the shutter speed between 1/ 60 and 1/10000. When you select a faster shutter speed,
movement appears clearer with less shaking when the tape is played back in still or slow mode. This
mode is most effective in the following cases:
A golf swing or a tennis match in fine weather with the ball movement captured clearly
Playing back certain scenes with high speed movements in clear sharp pictures
Turn the CONTROL dial to select the desired shutter speed. As you turn the dial, shutter speed
changes between 1/60 and 1/10000.
For a faster shutter speed, select a larger value indicator in the viewfinder. The exposure (iris) value
changes in accordance with the selected shutter speed.
