7 Frequently
asked questions
(FAQ)
How do I charge the camcorder?
•
You can charge the camcorder via the
USB pop-out connector. When you
connect it to your PC/laptop it will
automatically charge. You can also plug
the camcorder via the pop-out USB into
a USB charger.
Why is there no response when I use the
camcorder?
•
The camcorder is in power-off mode.
Turn on the camcorder (see ‘Get started’
> ‘Turn on’).
•
The built-in battery may be drained.
Charge the battery (see ‘Get started’ >
‘Charge the built-in battery’).
How long do I have to charge the camcorder?
•
The camcorder is fully charged for first
usage. The camcorder charge time when
connected to your PC/laptop is 3 hours.
When you charge it via USB adaptor, the
charge time is 2 hours.
Why is [Memory full!] displayed when I try
to record?
•
Ensure that the Micro SD card has been
inserted correctly (see ‘Get started’ >
‘Load the Micro SD card’).
•
The memory is used up. Save your
video/pictures to a computer (see ‘Use
more of your camcorder’ > ‘Transfer
video/pictures to a PC/Mac’). Then delete
files from your camcorder or clear the
memory.
Why do I have no access to folders on the
camcorder from my computer?
•
Ensure that the USB connection is
correct.
•
The camcorder turns off automatically
15 minutes after it is connected to a
computer. You can press
to turn it
on again.
Why do my video/pictures look blurry?
•
Hold the camcorder steady in your hands
during shooting.
•
During video capture, do not move the
camcorder too fast.
•
Use a tripod (not supplied) if necessary.
Why do my video/pictures look distorted on
a TV screen?
•
Select the correct TV system.
How do I fast-forward or rewind on the
camcorder?
•
You can fast-forward during play of a movie
by pressing the right-button for 2 seconds.
You can rewind during play of a movie by
pressing the left-button for 2 seconds.
Camcorder stopped responding?
•
In the unlikely event that your camcorder
stops responding, you can manually reset
it. The reset button is located under
the HDMI cover. There you see a small
opening above the HDMI connection.
Please use a small prying object (like
a pen) to insert and press gently for
resetting. After you have reset the
camcorder, please turn on the camcorder
again, and set-up will start again.
Why does the camcorder sometimes not
record the right color?
•
To record both indoors and outdoors,
and not having to change any settings,
the camcorder has an automatic whitebalance correction. This enables you
to record both indoors and outdoors
where the amount of light in the
environment changes. If you move fast
from outdoors to indoors, the camcorder
might need some time to correct that,
and in extreme cases the colors might
seem a bit unnatural. However, after
a few seconds this will be corrected
automatically by the camcorder.
EN
15
Can I connect the camcorder directly to TV,
DVD/Blu-ray player or Home Cinema set via
their USB-port?
•
The USB plug is designed to share your
videos/pictures to your PC or Laptop.
You can plug the CAM102 directly into
your TV, DVD/Blu-ray player or Home
cinema set (called the host from this
point on), and it will play the pictures that
are stored on the CAM102. To play the
videos from the CAM102, it depends if
your host supports the file format H.264
of the CAM102. Most Blu-ray enabled
players are able to play this format.
How do I connect it to a Windows PC/
laptop?
•
Connect the camcorder to your PC/
laptop via USB. The USB pop-out
connector is strong enough to support
the camcorder when it is plugged into
the PC’s USB port. For easy sharing and
editing, install the software program
(Media Impression HD) that comes with
the camcorder.
How do I connect it to a Mac?
•
The camcorder works with the Mac via
USB. The USB pop-out connector is
strong enough to support the camcorder
when it is plugged into the USB port.
The camcorder works great with the
iMovie software, which is part of the
iLife package that comes with your Mac.
To transfer videos using iMovie, simply
connect the camcorder to your Mac via
USB, launch iMovie and start importing
by clicking the camcorder icon. Select
‘Use original quality’ to ensure the best
quality, and to maintain file sizes at an
optimum.
What is HD?
•
HD stands for High Definition. The
camcorder captures videos in high
definition (720p), which is also the
resolution that HD TV programs are
broadcast in. “720” refers to the display
16
EN
resolution, in terms of the number of
horizontal lines onscreen. “p” stands
for progressive scan, or the sequential
appearance of the lines in each frame. HD
720p gives video quality that is superior
to that found in typical mobile phones
and digital cameras.
How do I play my videos on TV?
•
To play back on TV, please use an HDMI
connector (mini HDMI to standard
HDMI) if your TV accepts HDMI input, or
use the video-out cable provided.
Why is there no lens cover?
•
The camcorder comes without a lens
cover, keeping it simple to use and
fuss-free. It is made of robust material
that doesn’t scratch under normal
usage. A travel pouch and a lens cloth
are provided, allowing you to keep the
camcorder clean.
What format does the camcorder record in?
•
The camcorder uses the same video
format as Blu-ray players and discs –
H.264. This highly sophisticated format
delivers superb HD picture quality.
What does pre-record mean that is in the
setting?
•
The pre-record button is designed to
let you never miss a moment. When
you enable the pre-record function, the
camcorder will record video 3 seconds
before you have pressed the record
button. So when you play-back the
recorded film, you will automatically
see the first 3 seconds before you have
pressed the record button. This can
be useful when filming unexpected
moments. The pre-record function will
not drain battery life, it will operate as
normal.
Tips on video making
•
You can easily look back on fun moments
and relive them with the camcorder. To
enjoy these memories to the fullest, here
are some simple video tips:
• When capturing videos, hold your
camcorder steady in your hand
• Don’t move too fast when panning
(i.e. moving the camera horizontally)
as it will be hard to follow what is
captured when you review the video
• Try shooting from different angles
– for example, from the side, from
the front, or even from below. You
can easily join the different video
segments together with the PC
software included
