The new ZR850 comes with a variety of features that make it an easy-to-operate camcorder.
The Joystick makes using the camcorder easier than ever. Extra buttons have been eliminated, allowing you to access many functions from one convenient place. The Joystick lets you control Play, Stop, Fast Forward, and Rewind functions during playback. It also controls exposure lock and exposure compensation during recording.
With Quick Start, you'll never miss a shot again. Simply push the Quick Start button, in between shots, to put your camcorder in stand-by mode. Push the Quick Start button again, and your camcorder powers up and begins to record in less than a second. When using Quick Start, you are considerably extending the life of your battery compared to that of regular recording mode.
Also, an easy-to-read menu system makes the ZR850 a breeze to operate.
For the ultimate in stress-free shooting, there's the Easy Mode. In this setting, your ZR850 will automatically choose the focus, exposure and any additional available parameters to ensure that whatever you're recording comes out looking great. You don't have to worry about a thing -- just point and shoot!
Plus, this versatile camcorder is designed for lower battery consumption -- so you can keep on recording.
