How to Change the Language on Screen of Your DV Camera View Finder

Most digital video cameras support multiple language screen options. This is useful if you buy a camera from a foreign country. Depending on the camcorder you have, you might be able to use different languages. In order to change the language mode, try following the simple guide below.

Step 1: Instructions

Quite often, the easiest way to find out how to change the language on your video camera is to read the instruction manual. If you have lost the manual, then it should be possible to download a copy from the manufacturer's website.

Step 2: Accessing Settings Menu

Press the menu button on your camera, and then choose the settings option. This menu will contain various settings which can change how your camera behaves and works. Some of the settings include the format of the video, the date & time, and the language. Try to remember the steps involved in changing the language so that you can change it back if you select the wrong language.

Step 3: Selecting Language

Use the up and down keys to move to the language you want to select on your camera. Once you have chosen the language, press the OK button to select it.

Step 4: Confirming Options

When you've chosen the correct language, press the button to accept the changes. Some cameras will require a restart, while most will display in the chosen language straight away.
