USING THE REMOTE CONTROL UNIT (cont.)
You can record a new scene onto a previously recorded tape, replacing a section of the original recording with minimal picture distortion at the in- and out-points. The original audio remains unchanged.
Use the RM-V700U remote control unit to perform this procedure.
Play back the tape, locate the point and press PAUSE on the camcorder or the remote control. Press and hold COUNTER R/M for more than 1 second to reset the tape counter, then press again for less than 1 second so that âMâ appears.

Press REW to go a little beyond the beginning of the scene you want to replace, press PLAY to view the recorded tape, and press PAUSE exactly at the point where the new scene should start.

Press and hold INSERT, and without releasing INSERT, press and release PAUSE. The Insert Editing mode is engaged. When the scene the camcorder is aimed at appears on the screen, go to the next step. Press START/STOP. When the counter reaches â0:00:00â, editing stops automatically and the camcorder enters the Insert-Pause mode.

â During Insert Editing, the original audio will be heard from the speaker. â After step 5, Retake ( pg. 17) can be performed. â The tape may stop slightly before or after the designated end point, and noise bars may appear. Neither indicates a defect in the unit. â Only the video signal is recorded in the Insert Editing mode.
