scene file read/write on 2700

Greetings,
I recently purchased an HPX2700 and I'm now confronted with a process that I've never understood: the reading and writing of scene files and user settings to SD cards. Maybe I'm just slow, but I've dealt with this on tape Varicams, Betacams, etc...I've eventually gotten to where I want to be, but never quite gotten a grip on what got me there.

I've read the manual on this - many times - but I've never understood it. Can someone provide a boiled down, walk-thru of the process to save and read scene files and user settings?

You either read a file off a SD card, and load those settings into the camera (painting, matrix, gamma ect...). Or write a file, and save your camera settings to a SD card. You can have 8 files on a card, and 4 files in the camera. Plus you can load the default settings. The are many scene files on the Panasonic website that you can download for the 2700 with instructions.

Hi Paul,
Thanks for the response. I understand the capabilities of the SD card and scene files, I just have never understood a clear procedure for reading and writing the files and user settings. For me, the manual is confusing on this process.

I have the camera in front of me. Go into the user menu. You should have the choice of "SD card read/write" or "Scene". If not go into the main menu by holding the menu button down for 5 sec, you will find these choices under the "file" menu. In the scene menu, go to scene select and push the dial, now you can change which scene you want 1-4. Push the dial button again. Move down to read or write and push the dial button. Answer yes or no. SD card works the same way.
Where are you getting stuck?

Hi Paul -
I'll have the camera back in front of me on Sunday and will respond then.

Thanks you!
