7. Touch “Start”.
   This starts the Interval Snapshot operation.
    • Touching "Cancel" in place of "Start" will return to the recording mode that was selected before you selected Interval Shooting mode.
    • Starting an Interval Snapshot operation causes the camera and controller to enter a sleep state and standby or recording of the images. This will be indicated by the camera’s operation lamp flashing green.
      Note that the camera will not enter the sleep state if “5 sec” is selected for the “Interval” setting.
    • To recover from the sleep state, press any controller button. Next, touching Information Icon on the monitor screen will display the number of recorded images. The maximum number of shots is 9,999.

 • Anti-shake is applied during Interval Snapshot recording in accordance with the MENU Movie Anti Shake setting.
   However, image anti-shake is not applied.
 • The current shooting setup cannot be changed while shooting with this function.
 • The image after each recording operation is displayed only while “Type 1” is selected as the Review image type.
 • If the camera battery goes dead during an Interval Snapshot operation, the operation will terminate.
   The controller battery going dead does not affect an ongoing operation.
   To stop the Interval Shooting operation in this case, hold down the camera power button on the camera for about two seconds.
 • If you are performing manual camera operations or if the camera is out of the sleep state when the Interval
   Shooting operation reaches a shooting interval, Interval Shooting recording for that interval will be skipped.
 • Pressing the controller's power button while the camera is out of the sleep state will return to the sleep state and restart the Interval Snapshot operation.
 • Initial default settings depend on the selected scene.
 • If you change any settings, they are retained when you turn the camera off.
   To restore initial default settings, perform a reset operation to reset the camera.
