Charging time: Approximate time in minutes required to fully charge a
completely exhausted battery.
Recording/Playback
time: Approximate time available when you have fully
charged the battery. 'Full HD' stands for high definition image quality and 'SD'
stands for standard image quality.
Times shown above are measured under Samsung's test conditions. Your
times may differ, depending on your usage and conditions.
The recording and playback times will be shorter when you use your
camcorder in low temperatures.
We recommend using the AC power adaptor when using the Time Lapse
REC function.

•
The charging time will vary depending on the charge remaining in the
battery.
The battery is charged over 95% after about 2 hours, and the
indicator color changes to green. It takes about 2 hours and 40
minutes for the battery to charge 100%.
The continuous recording time above shows the available recording time when
you record without using any other function after recording starts. The battery may
discharge 2-3 times faster than this reference if you use the recording start/stop, the
zoom, and the playback functions. Prepare additional batteries with the expectation
that the actual recording time is about 1/3 to 1/2 of the times listed above.
We recommend that you use the AC power adaptor to power the camcorder
from a household AC outlet when recording and playing the camcorder indoors.
The connection is the same as that for battery charging. '_page 22
Battery Properties
A lithium-ion battery is smal-sized and has a high capacity. Low ambient
temperature (below 50°F (10°0)) may shorten its usage time and affect its
function. Before recording in low temperatures, put the battery into your
pocket to warm it, then install it in the camcorder.
Make sure to store the battery separately after use.
- A small amount of battery power is consumed when the battery is stored
in the camcorder even if the camcorder power is off.
- The battery may be completely discharged, if it has been installed and left
in the camcorder for a long period of time. If this occurs, the battery may
not fully operate even if you charge it.
- If the battery is not used for a long time, fully charge the battery and then,
using your camcorder, drain the charge completely once every 3 months
to keep the battery functioning properly. To store the battery, remove it
from your camcorder and put it in a cool, dry place.
Charge an extra battery before using the cameorder
outdoors
in cold
temperatures.
- The cold temperature may shorten the available recording time.
- Carry the supplied AC power adaptor to charge the battery while travelling.
Check whether the battery terminal is damaged
if the battery falls or is
dropped.
- If you install a battery with the damaged terminal into the camcorder, you
can damage the camcorder.
Remove the battery and the memory card from the eamcorder
and
disconnect
the AC power adaptor after use.
- Store the battery in a stable, cool and dry place.
(Recommended temperature : 59°F - 77°F (15°O - 25°0), recommended
humidity: 40%- 60%)
- Temperatures that are too high or too low shorten the battery lifetime.
- The battery terminals can become rusty or malfunction if the battery is
stored in a smoky or dusty location.
Recycle or dispose of your dead batteries properly.
The battery lifetime is limited.
- Battery capacity decreases over time and through repeated use. If
decreased usage time between charges becomes significant, it is probably
time to replace the battery with a new one.
- Each battery's life is affected by storage, operating,
conditions.

Damaged daIa may not be recoverable. We recommend you
make a back-up of important data separately ors the hard disk of
your PC,
• Turning the power off or removing a memory card during an
operation such as formatting, deleting, recording, and playback
may cause data loss,
• After you modify the name of a fib or folder stored in the memory
card using your PC, your camcorder may not recognize the
modified file,
Getting ready to start reco_ding
• We recommend that you power off the camcorder before
inserting or removing the memory card to avoid data loss.
•
Make sure to format the memory card on this camcorder. If
the memory card had been formatted by a PC or other device,
using it on this camcorder without formatting may find trouble
wkh recording and/or playback. Samsung is not responsibb for
damage of recorded contents caused by such reasons.
• You have to format newly--purchased memory cards, memory
cards with data that your camcorder cannot recognize or with
data saved by other devices. Note that Iormatting erases all data
on the memory card and deleted data cannot be recow_red.
" 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 subject the card to strong impacts.
,, Do not place foreign substances on the memory card terminals.
Use a seft dry cloth to clean the terminals if required.
,, Do not paste anything other than the label provided with the card
on the label pasting area of the card.
The camcorder supports SD and SDHC memory cards,
giving you a wider choice of cards!
The data storage speed may differ, depending ors the
manulacturer and production system.
- SLC (Single Level Cell) system: faster write speed enabbd.
• MLC (Multi Lew_l Cell) system: only lower write speed is
supported.
For best results, we recommend using a memory card that
supports a faster write speed.
Using a lower write speed memory card for recording videe may
cause difficulties when storing.
You may even lose your video data during the recording.
In an attempt to preserve every bit of the recorded video, the
camcorder forcibly stores the video ors the memory card and
displays a warning:
"Low speed card. Please record at a lower resolution".
If you are unavoidably using a low speed memory card, the
reselution of the recording may be lower than the set value.
_page 63
The higher the reselution and quality, the more memory the
camcorder uses.
,, Do not use a damaged memory card.
,, Be careful to keep the memory card out of the reach of children,
who might swallow it.
[_]
•
Samsung is not responsible for data loss due to misuse, including
loss caused by any PC virus.
We recommend using a memory card case to prevent data loss from
motion or static electricity.
After a period of use, the memory card may get warm. This is normal
and is not a malfunction.

Note that damaged data cannot be recovered.
Do not turn off the camcorder or remove the memory card while
accessing the storage media. Doing so may damage the storage
media or the data in the storage media.

For approximate recording time, see page 33.
Sound is recorded by the internal stereo microphone located on
the front of the camcorder. Make sure that the microphone is not
blocked.
Before recording an important video, make sure to test the recording
function to see if there any problems with the audio or video
recording.
For various functions available during recording, see _pages 50.-57
If the power cabb/battery is disconnected
or recording is disabled
during recording, the system is switched to the data recovery mode.
While data is being recovered, no other function is enabled. When
the recording time is short, the data recovery might fail.
You can adjust the brightness of the LCD screen in the menu options.
Adjusting the LCD screen does not affect the image being recorded.
_page 67
The menu setting tabs shown on the LCD screen do not affect the
image being recorded.
The Home (t_) button cannot be used during video recording.
Recording videos in a quiet environment increases microphone
sensitivity that may record surrounding ambient noise. The increasing
microphone sensitivity can let the camcorder record zoom noises
during zooming (the sound of the zoom mechanism etc).
When you record indoors or in the dark places, ISO sensitivity is
automatically adjusted. It can make interference effects on images
and you cannot view the images recorded in the dark places
correctly. We recommend you to use professional camcorders like a
infrared camcorder when recording at night.
An image can be shaken when the OIS Duo function is enabled if the
camcorder is mounted on a tripod or fixed on a place. Release the
OIS Duo function when the camcorder is mounted on a tripod.

Shutter speed refers to the amount of time it takes to open and close the shutter, and it is
an important factor in the brightness of a photo, as it controls the amount of light which pass
through the aperture before it reaches the image sensor. A fast shutter speed allows less time
to let light in and the photo becomes darker and more easily freezes subjects in motion.
