SET VIDEO LIGHT
Set the LIGHT OFF/AUTO/ON as required. ON : Always keeps the light on as long as the camcorder is turned on.

â Even if the battery indicator ( ) does not blink in the LCD monitor or the viewfinder, if the battery packâs charge is low, the camcorder may turn off automatically when you turn on the video light, or when you start recording with the video light turned on. â When the LIGHT OFF /AUTO/ON switch is set to âAUTOâ: â¢Depending on the lighting conditions, the video light may keep turning on and off.
