Cornpatible memory card capacity:
SD: 1GB--2GB

Whet/you use unauthorized memory cards, the camcorder cannot

The mernory cards released alter the release date of this camcorder
may not be compatible with the camcorder,
• To ensure stable operation, use 6MB/S (Class 6) or above memory
cards,
SD/SDHC/SDXC rnemory cards have a mechar/ical wnte protection
switch, Setting the switch prevents accidental erasure ot files
recorded on the card. To enable writing, move the switch up in the
direction of the terminals. To set write protection, move the switch
down,
SDHC/SDXC cards are a higher version of SD memory cards arid

the battery and memo_'y ca,_d
Damaged data may not be recoverable. We recommend you make
a back up of important data separately on the hard disk of your PC.
Turning the power off or removing a memory card during an
operation such as formalting, deleting, recording, and playback may
cause data loss.
If you modify the name of a file or folder stored in the mer//ory card
with your PC, your camcorder may not recognize the modified file.
The memory card does not support any data recovery mode.
Therefore, care should be taken in case the rr_emory card is
damaged while recording,
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 carncorder without reformatting it on the camcorder may
result in trouble with recording and/or playback. Samsung is not
responsible for damage to recorded contents caused by a failure to
format the memory card properly.
You have to format newly purehased memory cards and memory
cards with data that your camcorder cannot recognize or with data
saved by other devices, Note that formatting erases all data on the
memory card and deleted data cannot be recovered,
A memory card has a certain life span, If you cannot record new
data, you have to purchase a new mernory card.
Do not bend, drop, or subject the card to strong impacts,
Do not place foreign substances on the memory card terminals,
Use a soft 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.
Do not use a damaged memory card,
Be careful to keep the memory card out of the reach of children,
who might swallow it.
The data storage speed of cards may differ, depending on the
manufacturer and production system,
SLC (single level cell) system: taster write speed enabled.
MLC (multi level 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 video may
cause difficulties when storing.
You may even lose your video data during the recording. In an
altempt to preserve every bit of the recorded video on a low speed
card, the camcorder forcibly stores the video on the memory card
and displays a warning:
Low speed card, Please record at a lower resolution.
If you are unavoidably using a low speed mernory card, the
resolution and quality of the recording may be lower than the value
you set. _page 97
The higher the video resolution and quality, the more memory the
camcorder uses,
We recorrlmen d using a memory card case to avoid data 10ssthat
can be caused by m0ving the card or by static electric!ty,

Battery properties
A lithium ion battery is small sized and has a high capacity, Low
ambient temperature (below 50<;F(10°O)) 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 cor/sumed 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,
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, and
environmental conditions.
• Charge an extra battery before using the camcorder
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,
Getting Started
Remove the battery and the memory card from the
camcorder and disconnect
the power adaptor after use.
Store the battery in a stable, cod and dry place,
(Recornmended temperature : 59°F - 77°F (15°0--25°C),
recornmended humidity: 40%--60%)
Temperatures that are too high or too low shorten the battery
