Caution

Slow & fast motion recording cannot be used together with the following functions.

 - Dual recording

 - Relay recording

 - Pre-recording

 - Color bars

While slow & fast motion recording is activated, the recording command signal will not be output from the SDI OUT terminal ( only) or HDMI OUT terminal.
About the time code when slow & fast motion recording is activated:

 - The time code mode can be set to [ Regen.], or to [ Preset ] with [ Rec Run ] running mode.

 - If the time code running mode was set to [ Free Run ], the time code running mode will be changed automatically to [ Rec Run ] when slow & fast motion recording is activated.

 - When slow & fast motion recording is turned off, the time code running mode will return to its previous setting.

 - The time code signal cannot be output from the SDI OUT terminal ( only) or HDMI OUT terminal.

The maximum continuous recording time of a single clip using slow motion recording is the equivalent of 6 hours of playback time. Recording will stop automatically after that. For example, when the [x0.5] rate is selected, the maximum continuous recording time will be 3 hours (which, played back at x0.5 slow motion, equal 6 hours of playback time). This restriction does not apply to fast motion recording, which will not stop automatically.
