To reduce the battery consumption of the remote control

The following settings enable the battery consumption to be reduced when in use.

  • Auto monitor off while shooting:
  • Monitor brightness:


If the Live-View display is displayed for 5 minutes and movies are recorded for 55 minutes after the above settings are applied, you can use the remote control about two times longer than before.

  • When you operate FDR-X3000/HDR-AS300/HDR-AS50, set the Bluetooth remote controller power setting of the camera to and turn off the power of the camera frequently from the remote control while in shooting standby mode. This enables further reduction of battery consumption on both the camera and remote control.
