How to save these addtional test patterns
You can save these addtional test patterns to the memory buttons.
If you would like to do so, perform the following procedure.

The test patterns cannot be saved to the internal memory of the V-1600HD. You need to save the patterns to a USB memory and use with connecting it.

  1. Set the [ SYSTEM ] -> [ Memory Store Parameters ] -> [ Still Image ] to the "ON".
  2. Save the test pattern set along the procedure of the "How to use the test patterns" to a MEMORY button.
