∫ About the recording format for
recording motion pictures
∫ Handling of built-in memory
[HC-V500M]
You can record motion pictures in either
AVCHD*1 or iFrame recording formats using
this unit. (l 52, 65)
*1 It is compatible with the
AVCHD Progressive (1080/60p).
This unit is equipped with the built-in
memory. When using this component, pay
attention to the following points.
AVCHD:
It is possible to record in the best image
quality of this unit (1080/60p) and high
definition image (1080/60i).
It is suitable for viewing on a large format TV
or for saving to disc*2.
*2 To save an image recorded in 1080/60p,
it is required to copy to a disc using the
supplied software HD Writer AE 4.0.
iFrame:
This is a recording format suitable for
viewing and editing on a Mac (iMovie’11).
Using iMovie’11, iFrame motion pictures can
be imported faster than AVCHD motion
pictures. Also, the imported file size of
iFrame motion pictures will be smaller than
that of AVCHD motion pictures.

recorded in AVCHD format.
∫ Indemnity about recorded content
Panasonic does not accept any
responsibility for damages directly or
indirectly due to any type of problems that
result in loss of recording or edited content,
and does not guarantee any content if
recording or editing does not work properly.
Likewise, the above also applies in a case
where any type of repair is made to the unit
(including any other non-built-in memory
related component).
Back up data periodically.
The built-in memory is temporary storage. In
order to avoid erasing data due to static
electricity, electromagnetic waves,
breakage, and failures, back up the data to a
PC or DVD disc. (l 110, 120)
≥ Access lamp [ACCESS] (l 18)

unit.
j Turn the unit off (remove the battery)
j Insert and remove the USB cable
j Expose the unit to vibrations or shock
≥ About disposing of or giving away this unit.
(l 144)
∫ About Condensation (When
the lens or the LCD monitor is
fogged up)
≥ Condensation occurs when the ambient
temperature or humidity changes. Be
careful of condensation since it causes
lens or LCD monitor stains, fungus and
camera malfunction.
≥ For more details about the cause and
action required for condensation, refer to
147.
∫ Cards that you can use with
this unit
SD Memory Card, SDHC Memory Card

About the battery
The battery used in this unit is a
rechargeable lithium-ion battery. It is
susceptible to humidity and temperature and
the effect increases the more the
temperature rises or falls. In cold areas, the
full charge indication may not appear or the
low battery indication may appear about
5 minutes after starting use. At high
temperatures, the protection function may
be triggered, making it impossible to use the
unit.
Be sure to detach the battery after use.
≥ If the battery is left attached, a minute
amount of current continues to flow even if
the unit is off. Keeping the unit in this state
may result in over discharge of the battery.
This may result in you not being able to
use the battery even after it is charged.
≥ The battery should be stored in the vinyl
bag so metal does not come into contact
with the terminals.
≥ The battery should be stored in a cool
place free from humidity, with as constant
temperature as possible. (Recommended
temperature: 15 °C to 25 °C (59 °F to
77 °F), Recommended humidity: 40%RH
to 60%RH)
≥ Extremely high temperatures or low
temperatures will shorten the life of the
battery.
≥ If the battery is kept in high-temperature,
high-humidity, or oily-smoky places, the
terminals may rust and cause
malfunctions.
≥ To store the battery for a long period of
time, we recommend you charge it once
every year and store it again after you
have completely used up the charged
capacity.
≥ Dust and other matter attached to the
battery terminals should be removed.

145 ページ
Prepare spare batteries when going out
for recording.
≥ Prepare batteries enough to last for 3 to 4
times the period you are planning to
record for. Cold places such as a ski resort
can shorten recording time.
If you drop the battery accidentally,
check to see if the terminals are
damaged.
≥ Inserting a battery with damaged terminals
can damage the unit.
Do not throw an old battery into fire.
≥ Heating a battery or throwing it into a fire
may result in an explosion.
If the operating time is very short even
after the battery has been recharged, the
battery has worn out. Please purchase a
new battery.
About the AC adaptor
≥ If the temperature of the battery is
extremely high or extremely low, charging
may take time or the battery may not be
charged.
≥ If you use the AC adaptor near a radio,
radio reception may be disturbed. Keep
the AC adaptor 1 m (3.3 feet) or more
away from the radio.
≥ When using the AC adaptor, it may
generate whirring sounds. However, this is
normal.
≥ After use, be sure to disconnect the AC
adaptor. (If it is left connected, a minute
amount of current is consumed.)
≥ Always keep the electrodes of the AC
adaptor and battery clean.

few hours to complete the charging
normally.
≥ It will flash in approx. 2 second intervals when
normal charging resumes. Even in such
cases, it may start flashing in approx.
4 second intervals until charging is completed
depending on the conditions of use.
Flashing with approx. 0.5 second period
(off for approx. 0.25 second, on for
approx. 0.25 second):
≥ The battery is not charged. Remove the
battery from the unit, and try charging
again.
≥ Check that the terminals of the unit or
battery are not dirty or covered with a
foreign object, and connect the battery
correctly once again. If a foreign object or
dirt is present, turn off the unit before
removing.
≥ The battery or environment is at an
extremely high or low temperature. Wait
until the temperature has returned to an
appropriate level and try charging again. If
you are still unable to charge, there may
be a fault in the unit, battery or AC
adaptor.
Off:
≥ Charging has finished.
≥ If the status indicator stays off despite the
charging being unfinished, there may be a
fault in the unit, battery or AC adaptor.

≥ When the LCD monitor gets dirty, wipe it
with a soft cloth such as eye glass cleaner.
≥ Do not touch the LCD monitor with your
finger nails, or rub or press with strong
force.
≥ It may become hard to see or hard to
recognize the touch when the LCD
protection sheet is affixed.
≥ In a place with drastic temperature
changes, condensation may form on the
LCD monitor. Wipe it with a soft cloth such
as eye glass cleaner.
≥ When the unit has become very cold, for
example due to storage in a cold area, its
LCD monitor will be slightly darker than
usual immediately after the unit is turned
on. The normal brightness will be restored
when the unit’s internal temperature rises.
Extremely high precision technology is
employed to produce the LCD Monitor
screen featuring a total of approximately
230,000 dots. The result is more than
99.99% effective dots with a mere 0.01%
of the dots inactive or always lit.
However, this is not a malfunction and
does not affect the recorded picture.
About personal information
After you have set up the Face Recognition
function, personal information will be held in
this unit and included in recorded images.

About condensation
When condensation forms on the unit, the
lens will cloud up and the unit may not work
properly. Make every effort to ensure that
condensation does not form. If it does form,
take the actions described below.
Causes of condensation
Condensation takes place when the
ambient temperature or humidity is
changed as follows.
≥ When this unit is brought inside from the
cold (e.g. a ski slope) to a warm room.
≥ When this unit is moved from an
air-conditioned car to outside.
≥ When a cold room has been warmed up
quickly.
≥ When cool wind from an air conditioner is
directly blown onto this unit.
≥ After rain showers.
≥ When this unit is in a very humid place
where the air is thick with steam. (e.g. a
heated swimming pool)
Helpful hint
If, for example, you have used this unit for
recording on a ski slope and are taking it into
a heated room, place the unit inside a plastic
bag, remove as much of the air from inside
the bag as possible, then seal the bag.
Leave the unit for about an hour in the room
so the temperature of the unit is close to the
ambient temperature of the room, then use
it.
Indemnity
≥ Information, including personal
information, may be changed or lost as a
result of mistaken operation, static
electricity effects, accident, breakage,
repair or other handling.
