• For recording movies, it is recommended that
you use “Memory Stick PRO Duo” media of
512 MB or larger marked with:
–
*(“Memory Stick
PRO Duo” media)
–
(“Memory Stick
PRO-HG Duo” media)
* Marked with Mark2 or not, either can be used.
• “Memory Stick PRO Duo” media of up to
16 GB has been confirmed to operate correctly
with this camera.
• See page 24 for the recordable time of
“Memory Stick PRO Duo” media.
“Memory Stick PRO Duo” media/“Memory
Stick PRO-HG Duo” media
(This size can be used with your camera.)
“Memory Stick Duo” media adaptor
Notes on the battery
• Charge the battery before using the camera for
the first time.
• The battery can be charged even if it is not
completely discharged. Also, even if the battery
is not fully charged, you can use the partially
charged capacity of the battery as is.
• If you do not intend to use the camera for a long
time, use up the existing charge and store the
camera in a cool, dry place. This is to maintain
the battery functions.
• For details on the battery, see page 71.
No compensation for contents of the
recording
“Memory Stick” media
(You cannot use it in your camera.)
• The contents of the recording cannot be
compensated for if recording or playback is not
possible due to a malfunction of your camera or
recording media, etc.
Internal memory and “Memory Stick
PRO Duo” media back up
• “Memory Stick PRO Duo” media and “Memory
Stick PRO-HG Duo” media are both referred to
as “Memory Stick PRO Duo” media in this
manual.
• You cannot use any type of memory card other
than those mentioned above.
• “Memory Stick PRO Duo” media can be used
only with “Memory Stick PRO” media
compatible equipment.
• Do not attach a label or the like on “Memory
Stick PRO Duo” media or a “Memory Stick
Duo” media adaptor.
When using “Memory Stick PRO Duo”
media with “Memory Stick” media
compatible equipment
Be sure to insert the “Memory Stick PRO
Duo” media into the “Memory Stick Duo”
media adaptor.
• Do not turn off the camera or remove “Memory
Stick PRO Duo” media while the access lamp is
lit, or the internal memory data or “Memory
Stick PRO Duo” media data may be destroyed.
Always protect your data by making a back up
copy.
About changing the language setting
• The on-screen displays in each local language
are used for illustrating the operating
procedures. Change the screen language before
using your camera if necessary (page 21).
Notes on recording/playback
• This camera is neither dust-proof, nor splashproof, nor water-proof.
• Before you record one-time events, make a trial
recording to make sure that the camera is
working correctly.

Notes on using your camera
• If you rotate the lens portion back when your
camera is connected to other devices with the
USB cable, the recorded images may be lost.
• Do not aim the camera at the sun or other bright
light. This may cause irrecoverable damage to
your eyes. Or it may cause the malfunction of
your camera.
• Do not use the camera near a location that
generates strong radio waves or emits radiation.
The camera may not be able to record or play
back properly.
• Using the camera in sandy or dusty locations
may cause malfunctions.
• If moisture condensation occurs, turn off the
camera and leave it for about an hour before
using it.
• Do not shake or strike the camera. In addition to
malfunctions and an inability to record images,
this may render the recording medium unusable,
or cause image data breakdown, damage or loss.
• When inserting or ejecting the “Memory Stick
PRO Duo” media, be careful so that the
“Memory Stick PRO Duo” media does not pop
out and drop.
• When connecting your camera to another device
with a cable, be sure to insert the connector plug
in the correct way. Pushing the plug forcibly
into the terminal will damage the terminal and
may result in a malfunction of your camera.
• Playback of movies other than those shot, edited
or composed on this camera is not guaranteed.
Notes on the LCD screen and the lens
• The LCD screen is manufactured using
extremely high-precision technology, so over
99.99% of the pixels are operational for
effective use. However, there may be some tiny
black points and/or bright points (white, red,
blue or green in color) that constantly appear on
the LCD screen. These points are normal in the
manufacturing process and do not affect the
recording in any way.
Black, white, red,
blue or green
points
• Exposing the LCD screen or the lens to direct
sunlight for long periods may cause
malfunctions. Be careful when placing the
camera near a window or outdoors.
• Images may trail across on the LCD screen in a
cold location. This is not a malfunction.
Note on disposal/transfer
• When using software embedded in the camera,
personal information such as IDs and mail
addresses may be saved on the internal memory
of the camera. When transferring the camera to
others or on disposal, do so after deleting the
information input.
On image data compatibility
• This camera supports “MP4 format” as movie
file format. Therefore, movies recorded by this
camera cannot be played on devices that do not
support “MP4 format”.
• This camera does not support “AVCHD format”
and therefore is not compatible with the
playback and recording of movies in “AVCHD
format” like a Digital HD Video camera
recorder.
• Still images recorded by this camera are
compressed/recorded in JPEG*1 format. The file
extension is “.JPG”.
• This camera conforms with DCF*2 universal
standard established by JEITA*3.
• Playback of still images/movies recorded with
your camera on other equipment and playback
of still images recorded or edited with other
equipment on your camera are not guaranteed.

Selecting the image size according to use
• Before the continuous shooting ends, the recording time indicator flashes, and after a while, the recording
will automatically stop.
Your camera uses the VBR (Variable Bit Rate) format to automatically adjust image quality
to suit the recording scene. This technology causes fluctuations in the recording time of the
“Memory Stick PRO Duo” media.
Movies containing quickly moving and complex images are recorded at a higher bit rate,
and this reduces the overall recording time.

On the battery
On charging the battery
We recommend charging the battery in an ambient
temperature of between 10°C to 30°C (50°F to
86°F). You may not be able to efficiently charge
the battery outside of this temperature range.
Effective use of the battery
• Battery performance decreases in low
temperature surroundings. So, the time that the
battery can be used is shorter in cold places. We
recommend the following to ensure longer
battery use:
– Put the camera in a pocket, etc. to warm it up
before using.
How to store the camera
• If the camera is not to be used for a long time, to
maintain its function, fully charge the internal
battery and use it up at least once a year, then
store the camera in a dry, cool place.
• To use the battery up, leave your camera in slide
show (page 43) playback mode until the power
goes off.
On battery life
• The battery life is limited. Battery capacity
decreases little by little as you use it more and
more, and as time passes. If the battery
operating time seems shortened considerably, a
probable cause is that the battery has reached
the end of its life. Contact your Sony dealer or
local authorised Sony service facility.
• The battery life varies according to how it is
stored and the operating conditions and
environment.
