∫ About the recording format for
recording motion pictures
You can select from AVCHD, 1080/60p or
iFrame recording formats to record motion
pictures using this unit. (l 57, 67)
AVCHD:
You can record high definition quality images
with this format. It is suitable for viewing on a
large format TV or for saving to disc.
1080/60p:
This is a 1080/60p (1920k1080/60
progressive) recording mode that can record
in maximum quality*. The scenes recorded in
1080/60p can be saved or played back by
this unit or the HD Writer AE 3.0.
* This means the highest quality for this unit.
iFrame:
This is a recording format suitable for
playing back or editing on 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.
≥ It is not compatible with motion pictures
recorded in AVCHD or 1080/60p 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/
HDD related component).
∫ Handling of built-in memory

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 113, 125)
≥ Access lamp [ACCESS] (l 17)

≥ About disposing of or giving away this unit.
(l 149)
∫ Handling of HDD [HDC-HS900]
This unit is equipped with the built-in HDD.
While the HDD is capable of storing a large
amount of data, there are a few things to
look out for. When using this component,
pay attention to the following points.
Do not expose the HDD to vibrations and
shocks.
Due to the environment and handling
conditions, the HDD may be subject to
partial damages or may not be able to read,
record, and play back data. Do not expose
the unit to vibrations or shock, and do not
turn off the unit during recording or playback.
If the unit is used in a place with loud
sounds, such as a club or similar venue,
the recording may stop due to sound
vibrations. Recording data on an SD card
is recommended in these places.
Back up data periodically.
The HDD 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 113, 125)
HDCTM900&HS900P&PC-VQT3K69_mst.book 9 ページ
If the HDD experiences any abnormality,
back up data immediately.
Failure in the HDD may produce continuous
noise or choppy sound during recording or
playing back. Continuous use will cause
further deterioration, and may eventually
disable the HDD. If these phenomena are
observed, copy the data on the HDD to a
PC, a DVD disc etc. immediately and
contact consumer support. (l 168, 169)
Once the HDD is out of order, data cannot
be restored.
Operation may stop in hot or cold
environments.
The unit is disabled in order to protect the
HDD.
Do not use the unit in low atmospheric
pressures.
The HDD may fail if it is used at altitudes of
3000 m (9800 feet) or higher above sea
level.
Transportation
When the unit is transported, turn off the unit
and be careful not to shake, drop, or cause
impact to the unit.
Falling detection
[
] is indicated on the screen when it
detects a falling state (a weightless state). If
the falling state is detected repeatedly, the
unit may stop the recording or playback
operation in order to protect the HDD.
≥ HDD access lamp [ACCESS HDD] (l 20)
illuminates while the HDD is being
accessed (initialization, recording,
playback, deleting etc.). Do not perform
the following operations when the lamp
illuminates. It may damage the HDD or
cause a malfunction in the unit.
