Customer Question

I have recently purchased a Canon Camcorder VIXIA HF R600 from QVC.
My question is when I stop recording the screen turns black.
When I view my recording I get a black picture between every take.
How can I stop this from happening?

Hi,

Unfortunately, there is no way to prevent this. It is the way that the video/audio format is designed. There effectively is no way to pause the recording and keep it continuous. Stopping between shots records the file to storage as a file and when start is pressed the next time a new file is created. The segments must then be cut together using computer video editing software like Imovie or Windows Movie Maker.
