When recording a movie, the angle of view is narrower than that of a still image even in the same aspect ratio setting. When framing the scene before recording a movie, set the shooting mode to (Movie) to display the actual recordable area beforehand. If you start movie recording from the still image mode, display Grid Line to check the recordable area.

The difference of the angle of view is approximately 1.2 times, when converted to the 35mm equivalent focal length.

Example: When using a 16mm lens, the 35mm equivalent focal length is 24mm when shooting a still image. When recording a movie, it will be 28.8mm, multiplied by 1.2.
