Cautions for usage
• Do not allow dirt, water, or other substances to come into contact with the connector part on the
reverse of the card.
• Do not leave the card in the following places:
– In direct sunlight or in places of high humidity, e.g. close to heating equipment
– In highly humid or dusty locations
– In locations with high variations in temperature (condensation may appear on card)
– In places subject to static electricity or electromagnetic waves
• Store cards in bags or cases after use.
E-13
Operating precautions
Do not allow any water to get into the camerarecorder when using it in the rain or snow or at
the beach.
• Failure to heed this caution will cause the
camera-recorder or a card to malfunction (and
may result in irreparable damage).
Keep the camera-recorder away from
equipment (such as TV sets and video game
machines) that generate magnetic fields.
• Using the camera-recorder on top of or near a
TV set may cause distortion in the images and/
or sound due to the electromagnetic waves that
the set emits.
• The powerful magnetic fields generated by
speakers or large motors may damage your
recordings or distort the images.
• The electromagnetic waves emitted from a
microcomputer will adversely affect the camerarecorder, causing the images and/or sound to be
distorted.
• If the camera-recorder is so adversely affected by
products that generate magnetic fields that it no
longer operates properly, turn it off and remove
the battery or unplug the AC adaptor from the
power outlet. Then install the battery again or
reconnect the AC adaptor. After this, turn the
camera-recorder back on.
Do not use the camera-recorder near radio
transmitters or high-voltage equipment.
• Using the camera-recorder near a radio
transmitter or high-voltage equipment may
adversely affect the recorded images and/or
sound.
Do not allow any sand or dust to get into the
camera-recorder when using it at the beach
and other similar places.
• Sand and dust can damage the camera-recorder
or a card. (Be especially careful when inserting or
removing a card.)
AC adaptor (battery charger) and battery
• If the CHARGE lamp continues to blink even
when the battery temperature is normal, there
may be something wrong with the battery or AC
adaptor (battery charger). Contact your dealer.
• The battery takes longer to charge when it is
warm.
• The AC adaptor (battery charger) can interfere
with radio reception so keep radios at least 1
meter away from it.
• The AC adaptor (battery charger) may make
some noise when you are using it, but this is
normal.
Take precautions not to drop the camera when
moving it.
• Strong impacts may damage the camera and
cause it to stop working.
• Handle the camera with care, using the hand
strap or shoulder strap to carry it.
Do not spray the camera with insect sprays or
other volatile substances.
• These can warp the camera or cause the finish
to come off.
• Do not leave the camera-recorder in contact with
rubber or PVC products for extended periods of
time.
After use, remove the battery and disconnect
the AC power supply cord.
Battery characteristics
This camera-recorder uses a rechargeable
lithiumion battery that uses its internal chemical
reaction to generate electrical energy. This reaction
is easily influenced by the ambient temperature
and humidity, and the battery’s effective operating
time is reduced as the temperature rises or falls.
If you use this camera at locations with extremely
low temperatures, its operating time will be
reduced.
Protective circuitry functions if you use the battery
where it is very hot and you will have to wait before
you can use it again.
Remove the battery after use.
Completely remove the battery. (The battery
continues to be used even if you have turned
the camera off.) The battery can over discharge
if you leave it in the camera and it may become
impossible to recharge it.
Disposing of spent batteries
The battery will become unchargeable. Rather than
throwing the battery into the garbage, take it to a
store that can assist in recycling it.
Do not remove the battery when the POWER
switch is ON.
Disconnect the power supply after turning OFF the
POWER switch and making sure the mode lamp is
completely OFF.
E-14
Operating precautions (continued)
What to remember when throwing memory
cards away or transferring them to others
Formatting memory cards or deleting data using
the functions of the unit or a computer will merely
change the file management information: it will
not completely erase the data on the cards. When
throwing these cards away or transferring them
to others, either physically destroy them or use a
data deletion program for computers (commercially
available) to completely erase the data. Users are
responsible for managing the data on their memory
cards.
Liquid crystal displays
• Images or letters can get burned onto the screen
of the LCD or viewfinder if they are displayed for
a long time, but you can fix this by leaving the
camera off for several hours.
• The liquid crystal parts are highly precise with
99.99% of the pixels effective. This leaves less
than 0.01% of pixels that may not light or may
remain on all the time. These phenomena are
normal and will have no effect on the images you
shoot.
• Condensation may form if you use the camera
where temperatures fluctuate. Wipe dry with a
soft, dry cloth.
• The LCD may appear dim after immediately
turning on a cold camera, but will brighten as the
camera warms up.
Do not point the lens or viewfinder at the sun.
Doing so may damage the parts inside.
Protective caps for the connectors
Keep the protective caps fitted over any
connectors that are not being used.
E-15
Precaution for use
Before use
Always take some trial shots before actual shooting.
• When shooting important events (such as weddings), always take some trial shots and check that the
sound and images have been recorded properly before actual shooting.
Be sure to check and set the calendar and time zone.
• These settings affect the control and playback sequence of the recorded contents. Before making a

• Keep metal objects (such as necklaces and
hairpins) away from the battery.
Short-circuiting may occur across the
terminals, causing the battery to heat up,
and you may seriously burn yourself if you
touch the battery in this state.
• The battery becomes hot while it is being used
or charged. The camera-recorder itself also
becomes hot during use.
• The recordable time reduces if you repeatedly
start and stop recording.
• The battery takes longer to charge when it is
warm.
• The AC adaptor can interfere with radio
reception so keep radios at least 1 meter away
from it.
• The AC adaptor may make some noise when
you are using it, but this is normal.
• Battery cannot be recharged when the DC

Viewfinder
This camera has two viewfinders; one is a
miniature LCD in the viewfinder and the other is a
retractable 3.5-inch LCD.
Use the viewfinder that best suits the application
and shooting conditions.
• The brightness and hue may differ between the
images appearing on the viewfinder and LCD
monitor and those displayed on a TV monitor. To
see how the final images will appear, check them
on a TV monitor.
Fitting the eye cup
Attach the eye cup by aligning the projections on
the eye cup holder and eye cup and fitting them
together.
• Turning the eye cup after attaching it may
cause the eye cup holder to come off. If the
eyecup holder does come off, see “Cleaning
the Viewfinder” (Page 71 of Vol.2) for details
on how to refit it.

Projections
• The pixels of the LCD monitor are controlled
to obtain high precision with 99.99 % of the
effective pixels. This leaves less than 0.01 %
of pixels that may not light or may remain on
all the time. These phenomena are normal and
will have no effect on the images you shoot.
• Screen burn-in may occur in the LCD monitor.
However, this is not a defect.
Using the LCD
1 Set the POWER switch to ON.
(Page E-27)
2 Open the LCD monitor.
• The monitor opens to an angle of 90
degrees. The camera may be damaged by
attempting to open it further than this.
Emphasizing outlines
Emphasizing the outlines of the images you see
in the viewfinder or on the LCD makes it easier to
focus.
Emphasizing the outlines does not effect the
images you shoot.

• This camera uses the VBR recording system. “VBR” stands for Variable Bit Rate, and it refers to a system in
which the bit rate (volume of data per given time period) varies automatically depending on the subject which is
being shot. This means that the recording times will be shorter when fast-moving subjects have been recorded.
• Times displayed include time needed for processing, etc. – actual available recording times will be
slightly shorter.
• The camera is capable of continuous recording for a maximum of 12 hours.
• Recording can be restarted even if it was paused due to shortage of space.
• Even for the same card, the recording time differs depending on conditions such as the recording format
and recorded images.
• Mosaic-like noise may appear on the playback screen under the following shooting conditions:
āā When there are complex patterns in the background
āā When the camera is moved in large motions or when it is moved very quickly
āā When a fast-moving subject has been recorded (and especially when HE has been set as the recording mode)
• When an SD memory card is formatted, the entire data including still images recorded on the card is
erased and cannot be restored. Save any valuable data on your personal computer before formatting.
• Please use an SD memory card class of SD speed class 6 or above when using the VFR function.
Recording cannot be performed with less than SD speed class 6.
