"!_`>& camcorder or clear the memory.

How much memory is needed for 1 hour of

Full HD recording?

$ The camcorder uses 4GB on average for 1 hour of Full HD video. For a more complex video recording (e.g. with lots of motions in the video, or a lot of panning), the camcorder will use more memory. This is done to maintain the video quality, but will increase the usage of 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 charge the camcorder?

16 EN

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.

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 CAM102B directly into your
