  3. Press the MOVIE button again to finish recording the movie.


  • The image size or image quality of the still images can be selected from MENU → (Camera Settings2)→[Img. Size(Dual Rec)]/[Quality(Dual Rec)].


  • Dual Rec may be unavailable depending on the recording setting or mode setting.
  • When [Proxy Recording] is set to [On], Dual Rec is unavailable.
  • Depending on the memory card you use, it may take a while to record a still image.
  • The shutter button sound may be recorded.
  • You cannot use the flash during Dual Rec.
  • [Soft Skin Effect] is not applied to still images shot using the Dual Rec function.
