IEEE 1394 Data Transfer
Transferring IEEE1394 (i.LINK)-DV Standard Data Connections
Connecting to a DV Device (DVD Recorder, Camcorder, etc.)
■
■
Connecting to other DV standard products.
A standard DV connection is quite simple.
If a product has a DV port, you can transfer data by connecting to the DV port using the correct cable.
!!! Please be careful since there are two types of DV ports, (4pin, 6pin). This Camcorder has a 4pin terminal.
With a digital connection, video and audio signals are transmitted in digital format, allowing high quality images
to be transferred.
Connecting to a PC
If you want to transmit data to a PC, you must install an IEEE 1394 add-on card into the PC. (not supplied)
■
The frame rate for video capture is dependent on the capacity of the PC.
■
[ Notes ]
■
When you transmit data from the Camcorder to another DV device, some functions may not work.
If this occurs, please reconnect the DV cable or turn the power OFF and ON again.
■
When you transmit data from the Camcorder to PC, PC function button is not available in M.Player mode.
■
Do not use the Camcorder and IEEE1394 together as this will cause IEEE1394 to shut off.
■
Do not connect the Camcorder to a PC using both DV and USB cables. It may not operate properly.
■
Operation is not guaranteed for all computer environments recommended above.
■
The IEEE1394 cable (DV cable)is sold separately.
■
Video Capture software is commercially available.
■
Most DV enabled PCs have a 6 pin socket. In this case, a 6pin/4pin cable is required for the connection.
■
Most DV enabled Notebooks and Laptops have a 4 pin socket. Use a 4pin/4pin cable for the connection.
■
DIS and COLOR NITE SHUTTER are not available when in DV (IEEE1394) mode.
■
If DV(IEEE1394) mode is set, DIS and COLOR NITE SHUTTER modes will be released.

Power Sources (United Kingdom Only)
The mains lead on the power adapter is supplied with a moulded plug incorporating a fuse.
The value of the fuse is indicated on the pin face of the plug and, if it requires replacing, a fuse approved to
BS1362 of the same rating must be used.
Never use the plug with the fuse cover omitted if the cover is detachable.
If a replacement fuse cover is required, it must be of the same colour as the pin face of the plug.
Replacement covers are available from your dealer.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for the power points in your house or the cable is not long enough to reach a power point,
you should obtain a suitable safety approved extension lead or consult your dealer for assistance.
However, if there is no alternative to cutting off the plug, remove the fuse and then safely dispose of the plug.
Do NOT connect the plug to a mains socket as there is a risk of shock hazard from the bared flexible cord.
IMPORTANT
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
BLUE = NEUTRAL
BROWN = LIVE
As these colours may not correspond to the coloured marqueings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
The wire coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal marqueed with the letter N or coloured BLUE or BLACK.
The wire coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal marqueed with the letter L or coloured BROWN or RED.
WARNING
NOTE
120
Do not connect either wire to the earth terminal marqueed with the letter E or the earth symbol,
or coloured GREEN or GREEN and YELLOW.
