  2. MENU (Shooting) → [Image Quality][Movie Settings][Record Setting] → desired setting.

    Example of setting values

    200M 4:2:2 10bit

    (A): Bit rate

    (B): Color sampling

    (C): Bit depth

    • The higher the bit rate, the higher the image quality.
    • Color sampling (4:2:2, 4:2:0) is the recording ratio of color information. The more uniform this ratio is, the better the color reproducibility, and it is possible to remove colors neatly even when compositing using a green screen.
    • Bit depth represents the gradation of luminance information. When the bit depth is 8 bits, 256 levels of gradation can be obtained. When the bit depth is 10 bits, 1024 levels of gradation can be obtained. A larger value enables smoother expression from dark to bright areas.
    • [4:2:2 10 bit] is a setting that assumes that the recorded movie will be edited on a computer. The playback environment for [4:2:2 10 bit] is limited.
