I seems they removed the ability to do this wholesale, and not just in relation to higher bit rate recording modes. Pitty, I think I would have enjoyed that feature.

I just found this out the hard way. Getting ready for a concert and I was checking the camera for operation. Surprise! No Dual Rec on the III. The I had it, the II had it, the III doesn't have it, the IV has it. Disappointed to say the least. Lucky for me I kept the II.

What was this? A release before they had the engineering completely done on the new sensor or was the software not complete. Either way I'm disappointing in Sony.
