This sounds like a pretty cool little feature, will test it out tonight.
I have been messing around in the menus I don't have the manual with me and can not find the divide scenes anywhere, what menu item is this located under thanks.
I'm not with my camcorder right this moment either, but the option comes up when you are viewing videos and click 'edit'. play back a video, pause it and there should be some sort of option to edit or divide scene. it will then divide the scene right where you had it paused.
