Shooting and Recording

To avoid camera shake issues caused by operating the camera directly, consider shooting remotely from a computer or smartphone.

If you will shoot or record by operating the camera directly, hold the camera steady when pressing the shutter button or other buttons. To reduce camera shake, consider using an optional remote controller. For instructions on using the camera and shooting with a remote controller, refer to the camera and remote controller instruction manuals.
