AGC and low setting to -3 ? how ?

I have read about turning off the agc which I have done but how do I set the low setting to minus 3 ?
Is this the correct thing to do on this camcorder ?

Press the menu button, scroll down to camera setup, scroll to gain setting, then you can assign gain settings for your L/M/H switch.

Good luck. -3 dB really cleaned up my images.

Gain settings work in both video and still image recording modes.

Hi
See the effect of -3dB Gain settings at night in the sample clip section (Leopard at night).
That's the reason of reset to -3dB.
