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.

The III has the same sensor as the II.
