image quality.
This HD camcorder offers 720p resolution with a sharper image than previous SD camcorders (480i).
It also supports widescreen recording with an aspect ratio of 16:9.
Recordings made in HD (high definition) image quality will fit widescreen (16:9) HDTVs.
If your TV is not a high definition T_, movies with HD (high definition) image quality will be displayed with SD
(standard definition) image quality.
To enjoy HD quality images, you need a TV supporting 1280x720p input.
(Refer to the user manual of your T_)
To enjoy the HD quality images, use an HDMI or Component cable.
The multi AV cable does not support HD quality images so it down converts them to SD quality images.
The image is recorded in 720x480p when the quality is set to SD in the HD camcorder.
Videos recorded at SD (standard definition) image quality cannot be converted to HD (high definition).

o
Handle the liquid crystal display (LCD) with care:
The LCD is a very delicate display device: Do not press its surface with force, hit it or prick it with a sharp
object.
If you push the LCD surface, unevenness in display may occur. If unevenness does not disappear, turn the
camcorder off, wait for a few moments, and then turn it on again.
Do not place the camcorder with the open LCD screen down.
Close the LCD screen when not using the camcorder.
Liquid crystal display :
The LCD screen of this product uses high precision technology. Among the total number of pixels (approx.
230,000 pixels for LCD screen), 0.01% or less pixels may be missing (black dots) or may remain lit as colored
dots (red, blue, green). This shows the limitations of the current technology, and does not indicate a fault that
will interfere with recording.
The LCD screen will be slightly dimmer than usual when the camcorder is at low temperature, as in cold areas,
or immediately after power is turned on. Normal brightness will be restored when the temperature inside the
camcorder rises. This has no effect on the images in the storage media, so there is no cause for concern.
Hold the HD camcorder correctly:
Do not hold the HD camcorder by the LCD screen when lifting it: the LCD screen could detach and the HD
camcorder may fall.
Do not subject the HD camcorder to impact:
This HD camcorder is a precision machine. Take great care that you do not strike it against a hard object or let it fall.
Do not use the HD camcorder on a tripod (not supplied) in a place where it is subject to severe vibration or
impact.
No sand or dust!
Fine sand or dust entering the HD camcorder or AC power adaptor could cause malfunctions or defects.
No water or oil!
Water or oil entering the HD camcorder or AC power adaptor could cause electric shock, malfunctions or defects.
Heat on surface of product:
The surface of the HD camcorder will be slightly warm when in use, but this does not indicate a fault.

,,
the battery
pack
The recording time is affected by temperature and environmental conditions.
We recommend only using the original battery pack that is available from your Samsung retailer. When the battery
reaches the end of its life, please contact your local dealer.
The batteries have to be dear with as chemical waste.
Make sure that the battery pack is fully charged before starting to record.
To preserve battery power, keep your HD camcorder turned off when you are not operating it.
Even when the power is switched off, the battery pack will still discharge if it is left inserted on the HD camcorder.
If you do not use the HD camcorder for an extended time period, keep it with the battery completely depleted.
For power saving purposes, the HD camcorder will automatically turn off after 5 minutes in standby mode. (Only if
you set "Auto Power Off" from the menu to on (" 5 rain ").)
When fully discharged, a battery pack damages the internal cells. The battery pack may be prone to leakage
when fully discharged. Charge the battery pack at least once per 6 months to prevent complete discharge of the
battery pack.
About the battery life
Battery capacity decreases over time and through repeated use. If decreased usage time between charges becomes
significant, it is probably time to replace it with a new one.
Each battery's life is affected by storage, operating and environmental conditions.
Using the HD camcorder with the AC power adaptor
It is recommended that you use the AC power adaptor to power the HD camcorder from a household AC outlet
when you perform settings on it, play back, or edit images, or use it indoors. "_page 13
Z_,,
Before detaching the power source, make sure that the HD camcorder's power is turned off. Failure to do
C*UT,ON SOcan result in camcorder malfunction.
,, Use a nearby wall outlet when using the AC power adaptor. Disconnect the AC power adaptor from the wall
outlet immediately if any malfunction occurs while using your HD camcorder.
,, Do not use the AC power adaptor in a narrow space, such as between a wall and furniture.

The HD camcorder supports SDHC and MMCplus memory cards for data storage.
The data storage speed may differ, according to the manufacturer and production system.
" SLC (single level cell) system: faster write speed enabled.
,, MLC (multi level cell) system: only lower write speed supported.
For best results, we recommend using a memory card that supports faster write speed.
Using a lower write speed memory card for recording a movie may cause difficulties with storing the movie on the
memory card. You may even lose your movie data during the recording.
In an attempt to preserve any bit of the recorded movie, the HD camcorder forcibly stores the movie on the
memory card and displays a warning: "Low Speed Card. Please record a Lower quality"
If you are unavoidably using a low speed memory card, lower the recording quality by one level "[HD] Fine," "[HD]
Normal."
You have five quality options to record a movie with the HD camcorder : "[HD] Super Fine," "[HD]Fine,"
Normal," "[SD] Standard," and "[SD] Economy."
However, the higher the quality, the more memory that will be used.

Common cautions for memory cards
,, Damaged data may not be recovered. It is recommended you back up important recordings separately on your
PC's hard disk.
,, After you modify the name of a file or folder stored in the memory card using your PC, your camcorder may not
recognize the modified file.
Handling a memory card
o It is recommended that you power off before inserting or removing the memory card to avoid data loss.
,, It is not guaranteed that you can use a memory card formatted by other devices. Be sure to format your memory
card using this camcorder.
,, Memory cards need to be formatted on this camcorder before use.
,, If you cannot use a memory card that has been previously used with another device, format it on your HD
camcorder. Note that formatting erases all information on the memory card.
,, A memory card has a certain life span. If you cannot record new data, you have to purchase a new memory card.
,, Do not bend, drop, or cause a strong impact to your memory card.
,, Do not use or store in a place that has high temperature and humidity or a dusty environment.
,, Do not place foreign substances ors the memory card terminals. Use a soft dry cloth to clean the terminals if
required.
,, Do not put any additional labels on the memory card.
,, Be careful to keep memory card out of the reach of children, who might swallow it.
Note on use
,,
,,
,,
30
Samsung is not responsible for data loss due to misuse.
We recommend using a memory card case to avoid losing data from moving and static electricity.
After a period of use, the memory card may get warm. This is normal and is not a malfunction.
