dots, and can be rotated forward 180° for low angle or self recording, and
backward 90° for high angle recording.
Imaging Device: The camcorder has a 1/5.8" back-illuminated CMOS image
sensor with 2,510,000 total pixels. It has a recording area of 1,280,000 to
2,290,000 effective pixels for recording AVCHD video. For recording still images, there are
pixels for 16:9 images and 1,710,000 for 4:3 still images.
Lens: The GZ-R10 has a bright F1.8-F6.3 Konica Minolta HD lens with a
40x optical zoom, and a
focal length of 2.9mm to 116mm. The 35mm equivalent focal length for video is 40.5mm-1620mm
(image stabilizer: off). For still images,
the equivalent focal length is 40.5mm-1620mm in 16:9 and 49.5mm-1980mm in 4:3.
Zoom: The camcorder offers three options for zooming. In addition to
the 40x optical zoom, you can select dynamic zoom of 41-60x, or digital zoom
of 41 to 200x. When the digital zoom is used, the image can become grainy as
the subject is enlarged digitally.
Image Stabilization: You can choose from two levels of image
stabilization. The Digital Image Stabilizer (DIS) reduces camera shake during video
recording. The Advanced Image Stabilizer (AIS) can reduce camera shake more
effectively when shooting bright scenes on the wide angle end (up to
approximately 5x zooming).
Video Recording Quality: When recording in the AVCHD mode,
the video format is MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 with 2-channel Dolby Digital (48kHz, 256
kbps). The available image quality settings include:
||Average Bit Rate
||1920 x 1080
||1920 x 1080
||1920 x 1080
Still Image Sizes: In addition to recording video, the

include 1920 x 1080 (2M),
1440 x 1080 (1.5M), and 640 x 480 (0.3M). Still images can also be taken during video recording
or video playback at 1920 x 1080.
Time-Lapse Photography: The GZ-R10 can take a series of frames at a
set interval to illustrate within a short time changes to a scene that occur
slowly over a long period of time. This feature can be used to photograph the
opening of a flower bud, or the passing of clouds over several hours. You can
set the interval as follows:
||Takes frames at 1-second intervals.
Playback will be at 30x normal speed.
||Takes frames at 5-second intervals.
Playback will be at 150x normal speed.
||Takes frames at 20-second intervals.
Playback will be at 600x normal speed.
||Takes frames at 80-second intervals.
Playback will be at 2400x normal speed.
Self-Timer: There are three Self-Timer functions in still
image mode. The 10-second self timer is convenient for taking group photos,
allowing the photographer to get into the frame after the shutter release is
pressed. The 2-second self timer helps to prevent camera shake by taking the
picture 2 seconds after the shutter release is pressed.
Special Recording Modes: You can add the following special
effects to the still images that you record:
- Grainy Monochrome: Images resemble old, grainy black &
- Food: Use this mode to capture images of food to make
it look appetizing and more appealing.
- Baby: This effect is suitable for capturing images of a
baby. The effect softens the image, and enhances the clarity and brightness
of skin color.

recording and zooming takes place) is about 2.5 hours. Maximum recording time
(continuous) is 4 hours 30 minutes.
