Cautions for Use
ª About condensation
If you turn the movie camera on when
condensation occurs on the head or the tape,
condensation Indication [3] (yellow or red) is
displayed on the viewfinder or the LCD monitor
and the messages [3DEW DETECT] or
[3EJECT TAPE] (only when the tape is
inserted) appear. If so, follow the procedure
below.
1 Remove the tape if it is inserted.
≥It takes about 20 seconds to open the
cassette holder. This is not a malfunction.
2 Leave the movie camera with the cassette
cover closed to cool or warm it to the
ambient temperature.
≥The Status indicator blinks for about
1 minute and then the movie camera
automatically turns off. Leave it for about 1.5
to 2 hours.
3 Turn the movie camera on again, set it to
the Tape Recording/Playback Mode and
then check if the condensation indication
disappears.
Especially in cold areas, moisture may be frozen.
If so, it may take more time before the
condensation indication disappears.
Watch for condensation even before the
condensation Indication is displayed.
≥If the indicator of the condensation does not
display on the LCD monitor and/or viewfinder
and you notice condensation on the lens or the
main unit, do not open the cassette cover
otherwise condensation may be formed on the
heads or the cassette tape.
When the lens is fogged:
Set the [OFF/ON] switch to [OFF] and leave the
movie camera in this condition for about 1 hour.
When the lens temperature becomes close to the
ambient temperature, the fogging disappears
naturally.

ª About dirty heads
If video heads (the parts that closely contact
with the tape) become dirty, normal recording
and playback are not properly performed.
Clean the heads with the digital video head
cleaner.
≥Insert the head cleaner into the movie camera,
set it to the Tape Playback Mode, and play it
back for about 10 seconds. (If you do not stop
the playback, it automatically stops about
15 seconds later.)
≥We recommend cleaning the heads periodically.
If the heads become dirty, “NEED HEAD
CLEANING” appears during recording. During
playback, moreover, the following symptoms
appear.
≥Mosaic-like noise appears partially or the
sound is interrupted.
≥Black or blue mosaic-like horizontal stripes
appear.
≥The whole screen becomes black and there is
no picture and sound.
When normal playback cannot be performed
even after the head cleaning
One possible cause is that normal recording
could not be performed because the heads were
dirty at the time of recording. Clean the heads,
and perform recording and playback again. If
normal playback can be performed, the heads are
clean. Before an important recording, be sure to
conduct a test recording to make sure that normal
recording can be performed.
≥If the heads become dirty soon after cleaning,
the problem may be attributable to the tape. If
so, try another cassette.
≥During playback, the picture or sound may be
interrupted momentarily, but this is not a
malfunction of the movie camera. (One possible
cause is that the playback is interrupted by dirt
or dust that momentarily adheres to the heads.)

≥The camera body may be discoloured and the
surface finish may peel off.
≥Wipe the movie camera with a soft dry cloth to
remove dust and fingerprints. To remove
stubborn stains, wring well a cloth that is soaked
in a neutral detergent diluted with water and
wipe the movie camera with it. Afterwards, wipe
it with a dry cloth.
≥When you use a chemical dust cloth, follow the
instructions.
Do not use this movie camera for surveillance
purposes or other business use.
≥If you use the movie camera for a long time, the
internal temperature increases and,
consequently, this may cause malfunction.
≥This movie camera is not intended for business
use.
When you are not going to use movie camera
for an extended time
≥When storing the unit in a cupboard or a
cabinet, it is recommended that you put a
desiccant (silica gel) in with it.
ª About the battery
The battery used in the movie camera is a
rechargeable lithium ion battery. This battery is
susceptible to temperature and humidity, and the
effect of temperature increases with increasing or
decreasing temperature. In the low temperature
range, the fully charged indication may not
appear, or the low battery indication may appear
about 5 minutes after the start of use. At high
temperature, moreover, the protection function
may work, disabling use of the movie camera.
Be sure to detach the battery after use
≥If the battery is left attached to the movie
camera, a minute amount of current is
consumed even when the movie camera power
is [OFF]. If the battery is left attached to the
movie camera for a long time, over-discharge
takes place. The battery may become unusable
after it is charged.
≥The battery should be stored in a cool place free
from humidity, with as constant temperature as
possible. (Recommended temperature: 15 oC to
25 oC, Recommended humidity: 40% to 60%)
≥Extremely high temperatures or low
temperatures will shorten the life of the battery.
≥If the battery is kept in a high-temperature, highhumidity, 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.
Prepare spare batteries when going out for
recording.
≥Prepare batteries appropriate to 3 to 4 times the
period during you want to record pictures in. In
cold places such as a ski resort, the period
during which you can record pictures is
shortened.
≥When you travel, do not forget to bring an AC
adaptor so that you can recharge the batteries
at your destination.
If you drop the battery accidentally, check to
see if the terminals are deformed.
≥Attaching a deformed battery to the movie
camera or AC adaptor may damage the movie
camera or AC adaptor.
Do not throw 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.

ª About the AC adaptor
≥If the battery is warm, charging requires more
time than normal.
≥If the temperature of the battery is extremely
high or extremely low, the [CHARGE] lamp may
continue flashing, and the battery may not be
charged. After the battery temperature has
decreased or increased sufficiently, recharging
starts automatically. So, wait for a while. If the
lamp still continues flashing even after the
recharging, the battery or AC adaptor may be
faulty. If so, please contact a dealer.
≥If you use the AC adaptor near a radio, radio
reception may be disturbed. Keep the AC
adaptor 1 metre or more away from radio.
≥When using the AC adaptor, it may generate
whirring sounds. However, this is normal.
≥After use, be sure to pull out the AC mains lead
from the AC mains socket. (If they are left
connected, a minute amount of current is
consumed.)
≥Always keep the electrodes of the AC adaptor
and battery clean.
ª About the cassette
Never place the cassette in a high temperature
place.
≥The tape may be damaged, producing
mosaic-like noise at the time of playback.
When storing the cassette after use, be sure
to rewind the tape to the beginning and take it
out.
≥If the cassette is left for more than 6 months
(depending on the storage condition) in the
movie camera or stopped midway, the tape may
sag and be damaged.
≥Once every 6 months, wind the tape to the end
and then rewind it to the beginning. If the
cassette is left for 1 year or longer without
winding or rewinding, the tape may be deformed
by expansion or shrinkage attributable to
temperature and humidity. The wound tape may
stick to itself.
≥Dust, direct sunlight (ultraviolet rays), and
humidity may damage the tape. Such usage
may cause damage to the movie camera and
the heads.
≥After use, be sure to rewind the tape to the
beginning, put the cassette in the case to
protect it from dust, and store it upright.
Keep the cassette away from strong
magnetism.
≥Apparatuses using magnets such as magnetic
necklaces and toys have magnetic force that is
stronger than expected, and they may erase the
contents of a recording or may increase noise.
ª About the card
When inserting or removing the card, always
set the [OFF/ON] switch to [OFF].
When the access lamp is illuminated (During
access to the card), do not pull out the card,
rotate the mode dial, turn off the power, or
cause any vibrations or impact.
Do not leave the card in places where there is
high temperature or direct sunlight, or where
electromagnetic waves or static electricity are
easily generated. Moreover, do not fold or
drop the card, and do not strongly vibrate it.
≥The card may break or the contents of the card
may be destroyed or erased.
≥Do not touch the terminals on the back of the
card.
≥Electrical noise, static electricity, or failure of the
movie camera or the card may damage or erase
the data stored on the card. We recommend
saving important data on a personal computer
by using a USB cable, PC card adaptor, and
USB reader/writer.
After use, be sure to remove the card from the
movie camera for storage.
≥After use, or when storing or carrying the card,
put it in the storage case.
≥Do not allow dust, water, or foreign substances
to adhere to the terminals on the back of the
card. Moreover, do not touch the terminals with
your hand.
≥Keep the Memory Card out of reach of children
to prevent swallowing.
ª Folder structure of the card
The folder structure of the card formatted by
the movie camera will be displayed on the PC
as the illustration below.

ª LCD monitor/viewfinder
LCD monitor
≥When the LCD monitor gets dirty, wipe it with a
dry soft cloth.
≥In a place with drastic temperature changes,
condensation may form on the LCD monitor.
Wipe it with soft dry cloth.
≥If your movie camera is extremely cold, the LCD
monitor is slightly darker than usual immediately
after you turn the power on. However, as the
internal temperature increases, it goes back to
normal brightness.
Extremely high precision technology is
employed to produce the LCD monitor
screen featuring a total of approximately
123,000 pixels. The result is more than
99.99% effective pixels with a mere 0.01% of
the pixels inactive or always lit. However,
this is not a malfunction and does not affect
the recorded picture.
Explanation of terms
ª Automatic white balance
White balance adjustment recognises the colour
of light and adjusts so the white colour will
become a pure white. The movie camera
determines the hue of light that comes through
the lens and white balance sensor, thereby
judging the recording condition, and selects the
closest hue setting. This is called automatic white
balance adjustment. However, since the movie
camera only stores white colour information
under several light sources, automatic white
balance adjustment does not function normally
under the other light sources.
1)
Viewfinder
Extremely high precision technology is
employed to produce the viewfinder screen
featuring a total of approximately 113,000
pixels. The result is more than 99.99%
effective pixels with a mere 0.01% of the
pixels inactive or always lit. However, this is
not a malfunction and does not affect the
recorded picture.
ª Periodical check-ups
≥To maintain the highest image quality, we
recommend replacing worn parts such as heads
after approx. 1000 hours of use. (This, however,
depends on operating conditions including
temperature, humidity and dust.)
Outside of the effective range of automatic white
balance adjustment, the image will become
reddish or bluish. Even within the effective range
of automatic white balance adjustment, the
automatic white balance adjustment may not
function properly if there is more than one light
source. For light outside the functional auto white
balance adjustment range, use the manual white
balance adjustment mode.

ª White balance
The image recorded by the movie camera may
become bluish or reddish under the influence of
light sources. To avoid such phenomena, adjust
the white balance.
White balance adjustment determines the white
colour under different light sources. By
recognizing which is the white colour under
sunlight and which is the white colour under a
fluorescent lamp, the movie camera can adjust
the balance among the other colours.
Since white colour is the reference of all colours
(light), the movie camera can record pictures in a
natural hue if it can recognise the reference white
colour.
ª Auto focus
Auto focus automatically moves the focusing lens
forward and backward inside the movie camera to
bring the subject into focus.
Auto focus has the following characteristics.
≥Adjusts so that the vertical lines of a subject are
seen more clearly.
≥Attempts to bring an object with higher contrast
into focus.
≥Focuses on the screen centre only.
Due to these characteristics, auto focus does not
work correctly in the following situations. Record
pictures in the manual focus mode.
Recording a subject with one end located
closer to the movie camera and the other end
farther away from it
≥As auto focus adjusts at the centre of an
image, it may be impossible to focus on a
subject that is located in both the foreground
and background.
76
Recording a subject behind dirty or dusty
glass
≥The subject behind the glass will not be
focused because the focus is on the dirty
glass.
Recording a subject that is surrounded by
objects with glossy surfaces or by highly
reflective objects
≥The recording subject may become blurry
because the movie camera focuses on the
objects with glossy surfaces or on highly
reflective objects.
Recording a subject in dark surroundings
≥The movie camera cannot focus correctly
because the light information that comes
through the lens decreases considerably.
Recording a fast-moving subject
≥As the focus lens-inside moves mechanically,
it cannot keep up with a fast-moving subject.
Recording a subject with little contrast
≥A subject with little contrast, such as a white
wall, may become blurry because the movie
camera achieves focus based upon the
vertical lines of an image.
