Note on using
[Camera and Live-View Remote]
Wi-Fi function
•Use the camera and the remote control in accordance with the
regulations of the area of use.
•You cannot use the Wi-Fi function of the camera and the remote
control underwater.
Security in the use of wireless LAN devices
•To avoid hacking, access by malicious third parties, and other
vulnerabilities, confirm that the wireless LAN is always secure.
•It is very important to set up security on a wireless LAN.
•If a problem occurs due to inadequate security measures or due to
foreseeable circumstances, Sony Corporation is not responsible for
any resulting damage.
Notes before using the remote control under/near water
•Make sure that no foreign matter such as sand, hair, or dirt gets inside
the Multi terminal cover. Even a small amount of foreign matter may
lead to water entering the remote control.
•Confirm that the sealing gasket and its mating surfaces have not
become scratched. Even a small scratch may lead to water entering
the remote control. If the sealing gasket or its mating surfaces
become scratched, consult your Sony dealer or local authorized Sony
service facility.
•If dirt or sand gets on the sealing gasket or its mating surfaces, wipe
the area clean with a soft cloth that does not leave behind any fibers.
•Do not open/close the terminal cover with wet or sandy hands or
near water. There is a risk of sand or water getting inside. Before
opening the terminal cover, perform the procedure described in
“Cleaning after using the remote control under/near water".
•Open the terminal card cover when the remote control is completely
dry.
•Always check that the terminal cover is securely locked.
Notes on using the remote control under/near water
•Do not subject the remote control to shock such as by jumping into
water.
•Do not open and close the terminal cover while under/near water.
•The remote control sinks in water. Use the belt supplied with the
remote control to prevent it from sinking.
On GPS
•The GPS antenna is built in not the camera but the front of the remote
control.
•As the positions of GPS satellites vary constantly, it may take longer to
determine the location or the receiver may not be able to determine
the location at all, depending on the location and time you use the
camera.
•GPS is a system that determines your position by receiving signals
from satellites. Avoid using the GPS feature on your remote control in
places where radio signals are blocked or reflected, such as a
shadowy place surrounded by buildings or trees, etc. Use the remote
control in open sky environments.
•You may not be able to record location information at locations or in
situations where radio signals from the GPS satellites do not reach the
remote control as follows.
–– In tunnels, indoors or under the shade of buildings.
–– Between tall buildings or at narrow streets surrounded by buildings.
–– In underground locations, locations surrounded by dense trees, under an
elevated bridge, or in locations where magnetic fields are generated, such as
near high voltage cables.
–– Near devices that generate radio signals of the same frequency band as the
remote control: near 1.5 GHz band mobile telephones, etc.
•A GPS antenna is built in the front of the remote control. Placing the
remote control upside down may cause positioning to take long time
or may not be able to determine your position.
•If you take images with the GPS of the remote control set to [ON], and
upload those images to the Internet, the shooting location may be
available to third parties. To prevent this, set the GPS of the remote
control to [OFF] before shooting.
On triangulation errors
•If you move to another location right after turning the remote control
on, it may take a longer time for the camera to start triangulating,
compared to when you stay in the same place.
•GPS satellite error
When the remote control receives signals from more than three GPS
satellites, it determines your present position.
The triangulating error allowed by the GPS satellites is about 10 m (33
feet). Depending on the environment of the location, the triangulating
error can be greater. In this case, your actual location may not match
the location on the map based on the GPS information. Meanwhile,
the GPS satellites are controlled by the United States Department of
Defense, and the degree of accuracy may be changed intentionally.
•Error during the triangulating process
The remote control acquires location information periodically during
triangulating. There is a slight time lag between when the location
information is acquired and when the location information is recorded
on an image, therefore, the actual recording location may not match
the exact location on the map based on the GPS information.
On GPS use restriction
•Use GPS in accordance with the situation and regulations of the
countries/regions where you use the remote control.
Disposal
Remove the battery pack before disposing of the remote control.
Remove the battery pack
The built-in battery pack is recyclable.
When disposing of the remote control, remove the built-in battery pack
and take it to your dealer.
Notes
When removing the battery pack, be careful of the following.
•Remove the screws, etc. away from small children to prevent accidental
swallowing.
•Be careful not to injure your nails or fingers.
Important information
Do not remove the screws except when disposing of the remote
control.
We will refuse repairs or replacement if we judge there to have been
unwarranted disassembly.

Notes on long-time recording
•Camera body and battery may get warm with use - this is normal.
•Avoid using the camera for a long time when holding the camera in
your hand or when it is directly touching your skin. It is recommended
that you use the supplied adhesive mounts or waterproof case, or
optional mount accessories.
•Under high ambient temperatures, the temperature of the camera
rises quickly.
•Leave the camera alone for 10 minutes or longer to allow the
temperature inside the camera to decrease to a safe level.
•When the temperature of the camera rises, the image quality may
deteriorate. It is recommended that you wait until the temperature of
the camera drops before continuing to shoot images.
On the overheat protection
Depending on the camera and battery temperature, you may be unable
to record movies or the power may turn off automatically to protect the
camera. A message will be displayed on the screen of the remote
control before the power turns off or you can no longer record movies.
In this case, leave the power off and wait until the camera and battery
temperature goes down. If you turn on the power without letting the
camera and battery cool enough, the power may turn off again or you
may be unable to record movies.
