Make certain that your micro SD memory card is properly inserted into your handycam. If the memory card is full and needs to be cleared, you can wipe it entirely by going into the camera Menu > Set up > Format. This will delete everything from the SD card.
Run a test recording before extending your tower
Look at the Handycam's Viewfinder and ensure that you see a REC symbol at the top. This verifies that the record button on the iPad is operating correctly.
You may stop the test clip and now raise the tower. You are ready to film the game using long-form recording.
