Additional Features

The ZR40 has a number of additional features for ease of use and creative control.

Photo Search

This searches for images recorded in Photo Mode. You can search forwards or backwards through the images one at a time, or +/-10 from the current position.

Time Code

The ZR40 records a time code signal along with the video signal. This time code accurately identifies every point on the DV tape by hour, minute, second and frame. This is valuable when editing on a personal computer or professional video editing system.

Data Code

The DV standard calls for the automatic recording of date and time, shutter speed, exposure settings and other key camera data on the tape as you shoot. The ZR40 does not permanently superimpose this data over your video. Instead, the data remains hidden until you select it for display during playback or editing. You can turn the display on or off at will, and you can decide which data you want to display.

Remote Control

The full-function wireless remote control (WL-D74) of the ZR40 will work at distances up to 16 feet (4.9m). The remote can start and stop recordings, zoom the lens, handle all playback (VCR) functions, handle audio and video dubbing functions, and more.


The LANC terminal on the ZR40 permits easy connection of compatible edit controllers.
