The ZR50MC offers you three shooting modes to satisfy all your picture-taking needs. First there's the standard Video Mode for the majority of your shooting; then there's Progressive Photo Mode and Photo Mode for single pictures -- that's right, you don't need to carry a photo camera, too.
Video Mode delivers smooth, full-motion video, for playback on your TV. You also can transfer the video onto your computer to view, edit, post on the Internet, or send to friends.
You also can make your ZR50MC a still camera by switching to Photo Mode. Just press the photo button to capture more than 1,000 still pictures, each with 6 seconds of sound, on a single 80 minute videocassette.
Progressive Photo Mode
Use this mode to capture sharp still images onto the camcorder's MultiMediaCard. The full frame images are free from time lag blur. The 8MB card will hold up to 105 images.
