Notes for copying data to discs using the DVD burner

When deleting data on the media after making a copy, be sure to play back the discs to check that they have been copied

correctly before deleting. (l 79)

≥ Do not turn off this unit or the DVD burner or disconnect the Mini AB USB Connection Cable while copying. Also, do not shake this unit and the DVD burner.

≥ You cannot connect a USB hub and use it.

≥ You cannot eject a disc while copying.

≥ When data is divided and copied to more than one disc, a disc with a large unused area may result since data is recorded by scene.

≥ After data is copied to a disc, images cannot be added to the disc by connecting the unit to the

DVD burner.

≥ Use of a CD-RW or CD-R disc is recommended for copying still pictures that are small in size.

≥ If “READING DISC...” is displayed on the screen for more than 2 minutes, remove the disc from the DVD burner and make sure the disc is usable and was not inserted upside down. (l 73)

≥ There is no guarantee that a disc created by connecting this unit and the DVD burner will play back on any playable device.

≥ The recording date for scenes or files copied to a disc using the DVD burner with this unit is the date that the scene or file was copied. This date may not be displayed properly depending on the software used.

≥ Data that has been recorded on another device may not be copied, or it may not play properly even if it is copied.

≥ When a still picture file is copied to an SD card using a PC and other equipment but it does not show up on the display of the this unit, the image will not be copied to the disc.

When a disc that was created with this unit and the DVD burner is inserted into the DVD recorder, a message may be displayed prompting you to format the disc. Do not format the disc because all data will be erased and cannot be recovered.

Refer to the operating instructions of the DVD recorder for details.

DVD-R

Copy time

Approx. 40 min to 90 min

Approx. 30 min to 60 min

Approx. 15 min to 60 min

The time it takes to copy differs depending on the number of scenes recorded on the media, type of disc, number of discs copied, and the room temperature. Also, it takes time to automatically verify the copied data. For this reason, it may take longer to copy than the recording time on the medium.

Wait until the message is displayed indicating completion of copying.

≥ A DVD-R DL disc has two layers of recording surface so the copy time is approximately 1.5 to 2 times that of a DVD-R disc.

When you are not going to use the unit for an extended time

≥ When storing the unit in a cupboard or cabinet, it is recommended that you place a desiccant

(silica gel) in with it.

About the battery

The battery used in this unit is a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. It is susceptible to humidity and temperature and the effect increases the more the temperature rises or falls. In cold areas, the full charge indication may not appear or the low battery indication may appear for about

5 minutes after starting use. At high temperatures, the protection function may be triggered, making it impossible to use the unit.

Be sure to detach the battery after use.

≥ If the battery is left inserted, a minute amount of current continues to flow even if the unit’s power is off. Keeping the unit in this state may result in over discharge of the battery. This may result in you not being able to use the battery even after it is charged.

≥ The battery should be stored in the vinyl bag so metal does not come into contact with the terminals.

≥ The battery should be stored in a cool place free from humidity, with as constant temperature as possible. (Recommended temperature: 15 °C to 25 °C (59 °F to 77 °F),

Recommended humidity: 40% to 60%)

≥ Extremely high temperatures or low temperatures will shorten the life of the battery.

≥ If the battery is kept in high-temperature, highhumidity, or oily-smoky places, the terminals may rust and cause malfunctions.

≥ To store the battery for a long period of time, we recommend you charge it once every year and store it again after you have completely used up the charged capacity.

≥ Dust and other matter attached to the battery terminals should be removed.

Prepare spare batteries when going out for recording.

≥ Prepare enough batteries to last 3 to 4 times the period you are planning to record.

≥ Cold weather, such as when skiing, can shorten the recording period.

If you drop the battery accidentally, check to see if the terminals are damaged.

≥ Inserting a battery with damaged terminals can damage the unit or AC adaptor.

Do not throw old battery into fire.

≥ Heating a battery or throwing it into a fire may result in an explosion.

≥ If the operating time is very short even after the battery has been recharged, the battery has worn out. Please purchase a new battery.

About the AC adaptor

≥ If the temperature of the battery is extremely high or extremely low, charging may take time or the battery may not be charged.

≥ If the CHARGE lamp keeps flashing, make sure that the terminals of the battery or the AC adaptor are not exposed to dirt, foreign objects or dust, then reconnect them properly.

If the charging lamp is still flashing, something may be wrong with the battery or AC adaptor.

Contact consumer support (l 122, 123).

≥ If you use the AC adaptor near a radio, radio reception may be disturbed. Keep the AC adaptor 1 m (3.3 feet) or more away from the radio.

≥ When using the AC adaptor, it may generate whirring sounds. However, this is normal.

≥ After use, be sure to disconnect the AC adaptor. (If it is left connected, a minute amount of current is consumed.)

≥ Always keep the electrodes of the AC adaptor and battery clean.

LCD monitor

≥ When the LCD monitor gets dirty, wipe it with a dry soft cloth.

≥ In a place with drastic temperature changes, condensation may form on the LCD monitor.

Wipe it with a soft dry cloth.

Causes of condensation

Condensation takes place when the ambient temperature or humidity is changed as follows.

≥ When this unit is brought inside from the cold

(e.g. a ski slope) to a warm room.

≥ When this unit is moved from an air-conditioned car to outside.

≥ When a cold room has been warmed up quickly.

≥ When cool wind from an air conditioner is directly blown onto this unit.

≥ After summer afternoon showers of rain.

≥ When this unit is in a very humid place where the air is thick with steam. (e.g. a heated swimming pool)

Helpful hint

If, for example, you have used this unit for recording on a ski slope and are taking it into a heated room, place the unit inside a plastic bag, remove as much of the air from inside the bag as possible, then seal the bag. Leave the unit for about an hour in the room so the temperature of the unit is close to the ambient temperature of the room, then use it.

Explanation of terms

Automatic white balance

White balance adjustment recognizes the color of light and adjusts so the white color will become a purer white. The unit determines the hue of light that comes through the lens and white balance sensor, thereby judging the recording condition, and selects the closest hue setting.

This is called automatic white balance adjustment.

However, since the unit only stores white color information under certain light sources, automatic white balance adjustment does not function normally under other light sources.

2) Blue sky

3) Cloudy sky (rain)

4) TV screen

5) Sunlight

6) White fluorescent lamp

7) Halogen light bulb

8) Incandescent light bulb

9) Sunrise or sunset

10) Candlelight

Outside of the effective range of automatic white balance adjustment, the image will become reddish or bluish. Even within the effective range of automatic white balance adjustment, the automatic white balance adjustment may not function properly if there is more than one light source. For light outside the functional automatic white balance adjustment range, use the manual white balance adjustment mode.

White balance adjustment

White balance adjustment determines the white color under different light sources. By recognizing which is the white color under sunlight and which is the white color under a fluorescent light, the unit can adjust the balance among the other colors.

Since the white color is the reference for all the colors, the unit can record pictures in a natural hue if it can recognize the reference color white.

Auto focus

The lens is moved forward or backward automatically to bring the subject into focus.

Auto focus has the following characteristics.

≥ Adjusts the focus so that the vertical lines of a subject are seen more clearly.

≥ Attempts to bring an object with higher contrast into focus.

≥ Focuses on the screen center only.

Due to these characteristics, auto focus does not work correctly in the following situations. Record pictures in the manual focus mode.

Recording distant and close-up objects at the same time

Since the unit focuses on whatever is at the center of the screen, it is difficult to bring the background into focus when close-up objects are placed in focus. When recording people with distant mountains in the background, you cannot focus on both the subject which is close-up and the objects which are in the distance.

Recording a subject behind dirty or dusty window

The subject behind the window will not be focused because the focus is on the dirty window.

Similarly, when recording something on the opposite side of a road with heavy traffic, a vehicle that happens to pass by may be brought into focus.

112

LSQT1394

SDR-H60P&PC-LSQT1394_mst.book 113 ページ 2008年3月4日 火曜日 午後2時35分

Recording a subject that is surrounded by objects with glossy surfaces or by highly reflective objects

Since whatever is shiny or glistens is brought into focus, it is hard to focus on the subject to be recorded. The focus may become blurry when recording subjects at the beach, at night views or in scenes involving fireworks or special lights.

Recording a subject in dark surroundings

The unit cannot focus correctly because the light information that comes through the lens decreases considerably.

Recording a fast-moving subject

As the focus lens-inside moves mechanically, it cannot keep up with a fast-moving subject.

When, for example, recording a sports event with fast moving subjects, the focus may lose its sharpness.

Recording a subject with little contrast

It is easy to bring subjects with a sharp contrast or vertical lines or stripes into focus. This means that a subject with little contrast, such as a white wall, may become blurry because the unit achieves focus based upon the vertical lines of an image.
