ANTENNA INSTALLATION
INSTRUCTIONS
INSTALLATION
1. Grounding or Polarization
(A) Your product may be equipped with a polarized
alternating-current line plug (a plug having one
blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into
the power outlet only one way. This is a safety
feature.
If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the
outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should still
fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your
obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of
the polarized plug.
(B) Your product may be equipped with a 3-wire
grounding-type plug, a plug having a third
(grounding) pin. This plug will only fit into a
grounding-type power outlet. This is a safety
feature.
If you are unable to insert the plug into the outlet,
contact your electrician to replace your obsolete
outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the
grounding-type plug.
2. Power Sources
Operate your product only from the type of power
source indicated on the marking label. If you are not
sure of the type of power supply to your home, consult
your product dealer or local power company. If your
product is intended to operate from battery power, or
other sources, refer to the operating instructions.
1. Outdoor Antenna Grounding
If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to
the product, be sure the antenna or cable system is
grounded so as to provide some protection against
voltage surges and built-up static charges. Article 810
of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70,
provides information with regard to proper grounding
of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the
lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of
grounding conductors, location of antenna discharge
unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and
requirements for the grounding electrode.
2. Lightning
For added protection for this product during a lightning
storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long
periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and
disconnect the antenna or cable system. This will
prevent damage to the product due to lightning and
power-line surges.
3. Power Lines
An outside antenna system should not be located in the
vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light
or power circuits, or where it can fall into such power
lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna
system, extreme care should be taken to keep from
touching such power lines or circuits as contact with
them might be fatal.

LEAD IN WIRE
3. Overloading
Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or
integral convenience receptacles as this can result in a
risk of fire or electric shock.
GROUND CLAMP
4. Power Cord Protection
Power supply cords should be routed so that they are
not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed
upon or against them, paying particular attention to
cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point
where they exit from the product.

BASIC OPERATION
EN
Viewfinder
Shutter Button
This camera is equipped with an optical viewfinder.
Not pressed
Normal Shooting
To focus, point the camera so that the subject
appears within the finder, and then press the shutter
button.
Half-press
Macro Shooting
When shooting close-up, make sure
the subject being photographed is
within the frame inside the finder
(indicated with diagonal lines).
Full-press
NOTES:
● In close-up (macro) shooting, the area that is
actually photographed will be slightly below the
area that can be seen in the viewfinder. The closer
the camera is the subject, the greater that this
displacement is.
● It is recommended that you view the subject with
the LCD screen for an important shot.
The camera’s Shutter button is a two-step button.
Pressing it halfway (to the first step) causes the
photo standby lamp (green) to flash while the
camera focuses automatically.
Once the camera is focused, the photo standby
lamp (green) lights steadily. Pressing the Shutter
button halfway (to the first step) is called a “halfpress.“ Pressing the button from the half-press
position to the full-press position causes the camera
to take a picture.
NOTES:
● Suddenly pressing the Shutter button with your
finger or pressing too strongly can result in a
picture that is at an angle or which is blurry.
Press the button smoothly from the half-press
position to the full-press position when taking
pictures.
● If you have pressed the Shutter button halfway
and then release it, the camera will perform the
autofocus operation again the next time that you
press the Shutter button halfway.
● If you press the Shutter button all the way instead
of halfway, a picture can be taken after focusing
automatically.
EN
25
Good Photography Posture
With your left hand firmly supporting the camera to
the left of and below the lens, support the camera
body with your right hand.
Next, look for your subject and determine the
camera position.
You can change the angle of the subject and the
background by changing the direction in which you
point the camera.
You then frame the shot by using the zoom
function, etc., to enlarge or reduce the subject to
the desired size within the shot.
Use your left hand to hold
the camera also.
Hold your arms firmly
against your body.
Spread your legs apart
slightly and adopt a firm
stance.
Mounting the Camera on a Tripod
1
2
Align the screw hole on the bottom of the
camera with the screw on the tripod.
Turn the screw on the tripod to secure the
camera in place.
•Adjust the screw and the length of the legs so
that the camera does not wobble at all.
NOTE:
Stud
● Use only tripods not equipped with a stud that
prevents the camera from rotating.
Using a Tripod
We recommend use of a tripod in the circumstances described below in order to avoid problems caused by
shaky hands.
We especially recommend the use of a tripod when using pixel shift mode, wide range mode, or noise
reduction mode.
• Low shots
Because it is difficult to assume a steady posture for a low shot, the shot will frequently be on a slant or
blurred by shaky hands.
• Dark locations
When shooting in a location that prohibits the use of a flash (such as in a museum), the shutter speed is
reduced, which increases the likelihood of problems caused by shaky hands.
• Shooting a distant object through the telephoto feature
Because the telephoto feature makes a small, distant space appear larger, even the slightest movement of
the camera can cause blurring.
• Shooting an extreme closeup
Because a nearby object appears very large when shot in a closeup, the slightest movement in your body
or hand can result in a blurred image.

power adapter. Never attempt to repair or
check it yourself, as this is very dangerous.

Built-in Rechargeable Battery
To store the date/time in memory, a rechargeable
battery is integrated in the camera. As long as the
camera is connected to an AC outlet using the AC
power adapter, or the batteries installed in the
camera continue to supply power to the camera, the
built-in battery is always charged. However, if the
camera is not used for approx. 3 months, the builtin battery will become discharged and the date/time
stored in memory will be lost. When this occurs,
connect the camera to an AC outlet using the AC
power adapter for over 24 hours to charge the builtin rechargeable battery. Before using the camera
again, set the date/time.
Note that it is possible to use the camera without
setting the date/time.
Main Unit
1. For safety, DO NOT . . .
.... open the camera’s chassis.
.... disassemble or modify the unit.

3. Be aware of the following phenomena for
LCD monitor use. These are not malfunctions . . .
•While using the camera, the surface around the
LCD monitor and/or the back of the LCD monitor
may heat up.
•If you leave power on for a long time, the surface
around the LCD monitor becomes hot.
How To Handle A CD-ROM
•Take care not to soil or scratch the mirror surface
(opposite to the printed surface). Do not write
anything or put a sticker on either the front or
back surface. If the CD-ROM gets dirty, gently
wipe it with a soft cloth outward from the center
hole using a circular motion.
•Do not use conventional disc cleaners or cleaning
spray.
•Do not bend the CD-ROM or touch its mirror
surface.
•Do not store your CD-ROM in a dusty, hot or
humid environment. Keep it away from direct
sunlight.
EN
About moisture condensation . . .
● You may have observed that pouring a cold
liquid into a glass will cause drops of water to
form on the glass’ outer surface. This same
phenomenon occurs on the lens of the
camera when it is moved from a cool place to
a warm place, after heating a cold room,
under extremely humid conditions or in a
place directly subjected to the cool air from
an air conditioner.
Serious malfunctioning
If malfunctioning occurs, stop using the unit
immediately and consult your local JVC dealer.
