What is “dew formation”?
When cold water is poured into a glass, dew drops
form on the glass. This clinging of water drops is
called dew formation.
When dew forms in your VIEWCAM.
Dew will gradually form on the head drum of your
VIEWCAM and make the video tape stick to the
head. This causes damage both to the head and
the tape. When dew formation occurs, recording

Precautions
After operation, remove the battery pack from
the unit.
Do not aim the lens at the sun.
Do not allow direct sunlight to strike the VIEWCAM
lens or LCD panel, whether recording is in
progress or not, as it may damage the CCD sensor
or LCD panel surface. Be particularly careful when
recording outside.
When shooting in dark places, avoid sudden
brightly lit objects or light sources, such as the sun.
Otherwise, the image may white out. Should this
happen, point the camera in a different direction
until the picture returns to normal.
Avoid magnetic sources.
Using the VIEWCAM near strong fluorescent lights,
motors, televisions, or other magnetic sources may
adversely affect recorded images.
Watch the temperature and humidity.
You can use your VIEWCAM at 0°C to +40°C, and
at 30% to 80% relative humidity. Do not store the
unit in an unventilated car in the summer, in direct
sunlight, or near strong heat sources; this can
result in severe damage to the unit’s casing and
circuitry. Be careful when handling the unit after it
has been left in a hot place, such as the ones
described above.
Avoid situations where water, sand, dust or
other foreign matter could get on or inside the
VIEWCAM. Such substances could cause
malfunctions.
Do not use your VIEWCAM in areas with excessive
smoke or steam.
Do not leave your VIEWCAM in areas with
excessive dust or moisture.
Such environments can cause mildew to form on this
unit’s lenses. Be sure to provide ample ventilation.
Remember to remove the cassette tape, turn off
the power, and remove the battery pack when
the VIEWCAM is not in use.
Using the VIEWCAM near a broadcasting
station or other powerful transmission source
may cause buzzing or picture deterioration.
Avoid shocks and dropping.
Do not drop or otherwise subject the VIEWCAM to
hard shocks or strong vibrations. Bumping or
striking the unit during recording will generate
noise in the recorded image.
Some small, portable tripods may be difficult to
attach and may not be sturdy enough to
support your VIEWCAM. Be sure to use only a
strong, stable tripod.
When you use the VIEWCAM at a ski resort or
in some other cold environment, the LCD
monitor screen may get cold giving you - an
_.
image which is less bright than normal for a
while after it is turned on. This is not a
malfunction. If this occurs, put the VIEWCAM in
a warmer location for some time before use. To
prevent excessive cooling, wrap the VIEWCAM
in a thick cloth (a blanket, etc.).
Precautions
Use only those tapes with
q mark.
This unit is designed to operate with MP
tapes, so playing back ME tapes will result
in “noisy” pictures. Use MP-type tapes
whenever possible.
To protect recordings from erasure
When a previously recorded cassette is used again
for recording, the previously recorded material is
erased. To protect a recording from accidental
erasure, slide the tab on the cassette to cover the
hole. (A red mark will be exposed.)
To record, slide the tab to open the hole.
Television system signals and electrical system
voltages and frequencies vary substantially from
country to country. When you are abroad, check the
sections below before using the AC adaptor or
connecting the VIEWCAM to a TV.
The supplied AC adaptor is compatible with 50 Hz
and 60 Hz electrical systems in the range of 110 V to
240 V AC.
This adaptor can be used with 12 V and 24 V
negative-ground cars only. Do not use it with
positive-ground cars.
Do not insert anything into the erasure-protection
hole in the cassette.
Do not put anything into the holes on the bottom of
the cassette.
Do not store or place your video tapes in direct
sunlight, near heaters, or in places with excessive
moisture or dust.
Do not keep video tapes near magnetic objects.
They may erase the recording.
Do not drop or subject the tapes to excessive shocks.
Uneven tape winding will damage the tape. If the
tape is not properly wound, reinsert it in the
VIEWCAM and rewind the tape.
Store the cassettes in their cases and stand them
on edge.
Cleaning and maintenance
l
l
l
l
Many plastic parts are used in the VIEWCAM
casing. Do not use thinners, benzenes or other
strong chemical cleaners. These may cause
discolouration
and damage to the casing.
Clean the casing with a soft, dry cloth. If the casing
is particularly
dirty, wipe it with a tightly wrung cloth
dampened with a diluted, neutral detergent. Then
wipe it again with a soft, dry cloth.
Use a soft, dry cloth to wipe finger marks and other
soiling off the LCD monitor screen and lens protector.
If the lens needs cleaning, first remove the lens
cap and then clean the lens with a soft, dry cloth,
or compressed
air and lens papers designed for
photographic
lenses.
In any country, you can always watch the video
picture by using the LCD monitor screen. However. if
you want to watch the picture on a TV screen, the
TV must be PAL system compatible. PAL is used in
the following countries:
Germany, Great Britain, Sweden, Denmark, Austria,
Belgium, Switzerland, Italyq Spain, Holland, Finland,
Portugal, Norway, Hong Kong, Thailand, Australia,
New Zealand, Singapore, Kuwait, China, etc.
Precautions
Battery power is consumed even when the
VIEWCAM’s power is turned off. If the VIEWCAM
will not be used, remove the battery pack. (See
How to use the battery pack cover
l
After the battery pack is charged, put the cover on
it so that the “CHARGE” mark printed on the label
is seen through the window, as shown.
Battery pack consumption
l
l
Recording with many starts and stops, frequent
zooming, and recording in low temperatures
will somewhat shorten actual recording time.
Accordingly, be sure to turn off the power when
not recording. Make sure that you take enough
battery packs with you to provide two to three
times your estimated recording time.
Do not use an insufficiently charged or weak
battery pack. Such battery packs may cause
the power to automatically stop during
VIEWCAM operation to protect both the battery
pack and the unit.
Window
Cover
l
Before the battery pack is charged, put the cover
upside down so that only the battery pack casing is
seen through the window.
Temperature during charging
w
This VIEWCAM uses a Ni-Cd (nickelcadmium) type or Ni-MH (nickel-metal hydride) type
battery pack. Use only the SHARP BT-N1 , BT-N11 or
BT-H11 battery packs. They are designed specifically
for use with this VIEWCAM.
l
l
Battery pack life
The battery pack has a limited service life. If the
period of use becomes noticeably shorter with a
normal charge, the battery pack is at the end of
its service life.
Replace it with a new battery pack.
Extending battery pack life
We recommend that you use the battery pack until
its charge is fully drained and the VIEWCAM is
inoperable before recharging the pack.
Recharge the battery pack right before recording.
A battery pack stored for an extended time will
naturally wear down, resulting in decreased
recording time.
Do not try to recharge a fully charged battery pack
before it has been discharged, as this will cause
deterioration of the battery’s capacity.
Store the battery pack in a dry, cool place.
05
The Ni-Cd (nickel-cadmium) type BT-Nl, BT-N11
battery pack can be charged at temperatures of
0°C to 40°C. To utilize the battery’s full capacity, it
is recommended that charging take place at
temperatures of 10°C to 35°C.
The Ni-MH (nickel-metal hydride) type BT-H11
battery pack can be charged at temperatures of
10°C to 30°C.
w
For safety, keep the battery pack in its
protective cover when it is not being used. If the
metal parts of the battery pack come in contact with
other metal items, there is a danger that a short
circuit may occur.

Be careful not to get your fingers caught in the
cassette holder.
Do not apply force to the cassette holder except for
pressing the “PUSH” mark to close it.
Do not tilt the VIEWCAM or hold it upside down
when a cassette is being inserted or removed. It
may damage the tape.
Remove the cassette if the VIEWCAM will not be
used for a long time.
If you do not press the cassette holder closed
correctly in step 4 above, the VIEWCAM’s cassette
protection mechanism might eject the cassette. If
this happens, repeat the insertion procedure.
Do not attempt to pick up the VIEWCAM by holding
the cassette compartment
door.
The cassette holder may fail to retract automatically when you close it in step 3 above while the
battery pack is almost depleted. If this happens,
replace the depleted battery pack with a charged
one, slide the Power switch to the OFF position,
and then back to the CAMERA or VCR position.
In case dewing occurs, when a tape cassette is
inserted, it may come out for tape protection.
Before closing the cassette compartment
door,
check that the tape cassette is inserted properly.
4 Wait for the cassette holder to retract
completely, then close the compartment
door by pressing its centre until the door
clicks
into place.

Lighting
500 to 100,000 lux of light is best for clear, goodquality recordings. Though recording is possible with
less light, insufficient
lighting can result in poor
picture quality.

Reference
Lighting is not only one of the most important areas
in producing home videos, but also one of the most
overlooked.
Good lighting can often mean the
difference between a great picture and a poor one.
Lighting is also essential for correct white balance.
In most outdoor, daytime scenes, natural lighting is
adequate for home videos. Indoors, the situation
becomes more complicated.
Artificial lighting is
required, and halogen lamps provide the most
natural artificial light while maintaining
a constant
colour temperature
over a long period.
Good lighting is difficult to achieve. There are many
problems waiting to catch the unwary. Simply
mounting one light or several lights on either side of
the VIEWCAM will only make your subject look flat
and two-dimensional.
To make a subject more
interesting, use lighting to model your subject and to
add or create emphasis in a scene.
l
l
The figures in the charts are approximations.
The auto white balance operates automatically
within the range of “AUTO” shown in the chart.
However, it will satisfactorily
operate from 2,500 K
up to 8,000 K, although the picture may take on a
red or blue tint.
