About Batteries
Lithium-ion is vulnerable in colder
temperatures.
DANGER! Do not attempt to take the batteries apart, or
expose them to flame or excessive heat, as it may cause a fire
or explosion.
WARNING! Do not allow the battery or its terminals to come
in contact with metals, as this can result in a short circuit and
possibly start a fire.
The Benefits Of Lithium-Ion Batteries
Lithium-ion battery packs are small but have a large power
capacity. However, when one is exposed to cold temperatures
(below 10°C/50°F), its usage time becomes shorter and it may
cease to function. If this happens, place the battery pack in
your pocket or other warm, protected place for a short time,
then re-attach it to the camcorder. As long as the battery pack
itself is not cold, it should not affect performance.
(If you’re using a heating pad, make sure the battery pack does
not come in direct contact with it.)

Journalistic Shooting
In some situations, different shooting angles may provide more dramatic
results. Hold the camcorder in the desired position and tilt the LCD
monitor in the most convenient direction. It can rotate 270° (90° downward, 180° upward).
Interface Shooting
The person you shoot can view himself/herself in the LCD monitor, and
you can even shoot yourself while viewing your own image in the LCD
monitor.
Open the LCD monitor and tilt it upward to 180° so that it faces forward.
When the LCD monitor is tilted upward to an angle of over approx. 105°,
the monitor image is inverted vertically. If the viewfinder is pulled out at
that time, it also switches on.
Point the lens toward the subject (yourself when self-recording) and start
Self-Recording
recording.
During Interface Shooting, the monitor image and indications do not
appear inverted as they would when viewing a mirror.

● Zooming is possible to a maximum of 200X, or it
can be switched to 10X magnification using the
optical zoom (墌 pg. 41).
● Zoom magnification of over 10X is done through
Digital image processing, and is therefore called
Digital Zoom.
● During Digital zoom, the quality of image may
suffer.
● Digital zoom cannot be used in the following cases:
• When digital image processing, such as Picture
Wipe/Dissolve (墌 pg. 50, 51) or Video Echo
(墌 pg. 49), is activated.
● Macro shooting (as close as approx. 5 cm (2") to the
subject) is possible when the Power Zoom Ring is

VIDEO RECORDING (cont.)
EN
Time Code
During recording, a time code is recorded on the tape. This code is to confirm the location of the recorded
scene on the tape during playback.
If recording starts from a blank portion, the time code begins counting from “00:00:00”
(minute:second:frame). If recording starts from the end of a previously recorded scene, the time code
continues from the last time code number.
To perform Random Assemble Editing (墌 pg. 69 – 73), time code is necessary. If during recording a blank
portion is left partway through the tape, the time code is interrupted. When recording is resumed, the time
code starts counting up again from “00:00:00”. This means the camcorder may record the same time
codes as those existing in a previously recorded scene. To prevent this, perform “Recording From The
Middle of A Tape” below in the following cases;
•When shooting again after playing back a

FEATURE: Auto Focus
PURPOSE:
The camcorder’s Full Range AF system offers continuous shooting ability from close-up (as close as approx.
5 cm (2”) to the subject) to infinity.
However, correct focus may not be obtainable in the situations listed below (in these cases use manual
focusing):
•When two subjects overlap in the same scene.
•When illumination is low.*
•When the subject has no contrast (difference in brightness and darkness), such as a flat, one-colour wall,
or a clear, blue sky.*
•When a dark object is barely visible in the viewfinder.*
•When the scene contains minute patterns or identical patterns that are regularly repeated.
•When the scene is affected by sunbeams or light reflecting off the surface of a body of water.
•When shooting a scene with a high-contrast background.
* The following low-contrast warnings appear blinking: , ,
and
NOTES:
● If the lens is smeared or blurred, accurate focusing is not possible. Keep the lens clean, wiping with a
piece of soft cloth if it gets dirty. When condensation occurs, wipe with a soft cloth or wait for it to dry
naturally.
● When shooting a subject close to the lens, zoom out first ( 墌 pg. 21). If zoomed-in in the auto focus
mode, the camcorder may automatically zoom out depending on the distance between the camcorder
and the subject. This will not occur when “TELE MACRO” ( 墌 pg. 41) is activated.
FEATURE: Manual Focus
PURPOSE:
To obtain correct focus.
OPERATION:
1) If you are using the viewfinder, you should already have made the necessary viewfinder adjustments
(墌 pg. 12).
2) Set the Power Switch to “ ” while pressing down the Lock Button located on the switch, then press
FOCUS/BLANK (墌 pg. 86 and 87, $ FOCUS/BLANK Button). The manual focus indicator appears.

4) Press SET/SELECT. Focus adjustment is complete.
To reset to Auto Focus, press FOCUS/BLANK twice or set the Power Switch to “ ”.
If FOCUS/BLANK is pressed once, the camcorder will enter the focus adjustment mode again.
NOTES:
● Be sure to focus the lens in the maximum telephoto position when you use the Manual Focus mode. If
you focus in on a subject in the wide-angle position, sharply focused images cannot be obtained when
zoomed up because the depth-of-field is reduced at longer focal lengths.
● When the focus level cannot be adjusted any further or closer, “ ” or “ ” will blink.

• When the background is overly dark or the
subject is bright.
Use this function in the following situations:
• When shooting a moving subject.
• When the distance to the subject changes (so its
size in the LCD monitor or the viewfinder
changes), such as when the subject is backing
away.
• When shooting on a reflective natural background
such as at the beach or when skiing.
• When shooting objects under a spotlight.
• When zooming.
When the subject is close, keep the iris locked.

White Balance Adjustment
Manual White Balance Operation
A term that refers to the correctness of color
reproduction under various lighting. If the white
balance is correct, all other colors will be accurately reproduced.
The white balance is usually adjusted automatically.

control this function manually to achieve a more
professional color/tint reproduction.

● A subject can be shot under various types of
lighting conditions indoors (natural, flourescent,
candlelight, etc.). Because the color temperature
is different depending on the light source, the

Random Assemble Editing [R.A.Edit]
Create edited videos easily using your camcorder as
the source player. You can select up to 8 “cuts” for
automatic editing, in any order you like. R.A.Edit is
more easily performed when the MBR (Multi-Brand
Remote) is set to operate with your brand of VCR
(see VCR CODE LIST), but can also be performed by
operating the VCR manually.
Before operation, make sure the batteries are
installed in the remote control ( pg. 62).

using the supplied battery
pack or an optional battery
Terminals
pack, be sure to read the
following cautions:
1. To avoid hazards . . .
.... do not burn.
.... do not short-circuit the terminals. When
transporting, make sure the provided battery
cap is attached to the battery. If the battery cap
is misplaced, carry the battery in a plastic bag.
.... do not modify or disassemble.
93
.... do not expose the battery to temperatures
exceeding 60°C (140°F), as this may cause the
battery to overheat, explode or catch fire.
.... use only specified chargers.
2. To prevent damage and prolong service life . . .
.... do not subject to unnecessary shock.
.... charge in an environment where temperatures
are within the tolerances shown in the chart
below. This is a chemical reaction type
battery—cooler temperatures impede chemical
reaction, while warmer temperatures can
prevent complete charging.
.... store in a cool, dry place. Extended exposure
to high temperatures will increase natural
discharge and shorten service life.
.... fully charge and then fully discharge the
battery every 6 months when storing the
battery pack over a long period time.
.... remove from charger or powered unit when
not in use, as some machines use current even
when switched off.
NOTES:
● It is normal for the battery pack to be warm after
charging, or after use.
Temperature Range Specifications
Charging ............. 10°C to 35°C (50°F to 95°F)
Operation ........... 0°C to 40°C (32°F to 104°F)
Storage ............... –10°C to 30°C (14°F to 86°F)
● Recharging time is based on room temperature of
20°C (68°F).
● The lower the temperature, the longer recharging
takes.
Cassettes
To properly use and store your cassettes, be sure to
read the following cautions:
1. During use . . .
.... make sure the cassette bears the Mini DV mark.
.... be aware that recording onto prerecorded
tapes automatically erases the previously
recorded video and audio signals.
.... make sure the cassette is positioned properly
when inserting.
.... do not load and unload the cassette
repeatedly without allowing the tape to run at all.
This slackens the tape and can result in damage.
.... do not open the front tape cover. This exposes
the tape to fingerprints and dust.
2. Store cassettes . . .
.... away from heaters or other heat sources.
.... out of direct sunlight.
.... where they won’t be subject to unnecessary
shock or vibration.
.... where they won’t be exposed to strong
magnetic fields (such as those generated by
motors, transformers or magnets).
.... vertically, in their original cases.
94
EN

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.
About moisture condensation . . .
● You 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 head drum of a
camcorder 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.
● Moisture on the head drum can cause severe
damage to the video tape, and can lead to
internal damage to the camcorder itself.
Serious malfunctioning
If malfunctioning occurs, stop using the unit
immediately and consult your local JVC dealer.
The camcorder is a microcomputer-controlled
device. External noise and interference (from a
TV, a radio, etc.) might prevent it from functioning properly. In such cases, first disconnect its
power supply unit (battery pack, AC Power
Adapter/Charger, etc.) and wait a few minutes
and then re-connect it and proceed as usual
from the beginning.
