• If “PMB” has already been installed on the computer, and the version number of
the previously installed “PMB” is lower than that of the “PMB” on the CD-ROM
(supplied), install “PMB” also from the CD-ROM (supplied).
Notes
• When changing the lens, if dust or debris gets inside the camera and adheres to the
surface of the image sensor (the part that acts as the film), it may appear as dark
spots on the image, depending on the shooting environment. The camera vibrates
slightly when it is turned off, due to the anti-dust function, to prevent dust from
adhering to the image sensor. However, attach or remove the lens quickly
somewhere away from dusty locations.

10 °C and 30 °C (50 °F and 86 °F) to efficiently charge the battery pack.
• Connect the battery charger to the nearest wall outlet (wall socket).
• A charged battery discharges little by little even though you do not use your
camera.
Charge the battery before using the camera to avoid missing an opportunity to
shoot.

On the functions available with the camera
You may feel uncomfortable symptoms such as eyestrain, nausea, or a tired
feeling while watching 3D images recorded with the camera on 3D compatible
monitors. When you watch 3D images, we recommend that you take a break at
regular time intervals. Since the need for or frequency of break times varies
between individuals, please set your own standards. If you feel sick, stop
watching 3D images, and consult a doctor as needed. Also, refer to the
operating instructions of the connected device or the software used with the
camera. A child's vision is always vulnerable (especially for children under six
years of age). Before allowing them to watch 3D images, please consult with
an expert, such as a pediatric or ophthalmic doctor. Make sure your children
follow the precautions above.
On the LCD monitor and lens
• The LCD monitor is manufactured using extremely high-precision
technology so over 99.99 % of the pixels are operational for effective use.
However, there may be some tiny black points and/or bright points (white,
red, blue or green in color) that constantly appear on the LCD monitor. These
points are normal in the manufacturing process and do not affect the images
in any way.
• A magnet is attached to the back of the LCD monitor. Do not put objects that
are affected by magnetic fields, such as a floppy disk or a credit card,
between the LCD monitor and the camera body.
Magnet
• Images may trail across on the LCD monitor in a cold location. This is not a
malfunction. When turning on the camera in a cold location, the LCD
monitor may become temporarily dark.
• Do not expose the camera to direct sunlight. If sunlight is focused on a
nearby object, it may cause a fire. When you must place the camera under
direct sunlight, attach the front lens cap.
On using the lenses and accessories
It is recommended that you use Sony lenses/accessories designed to suit the
characteristics of this camera. Using the products of other manufacturers may
cause the camera not to operate to its capability, or result in accidents and
malfunctions of the camera.
Do not use/store the camera in the following places
• In an extremely hot, dry or humid place
In places such as in a car parked in the sun, the camera body may become
deformed and this may cause a malfunction.
• Storing under direct sunlight or near a heater
The camera body may become discolored or deformed, and this may cause a
malfunction.
• In a location subject to rocking vibration
• Near strong magnetic place
• In sandy or dusty places
Be careful not to let sand or dust get into the camera. This may cause the
camera to malfunction, and in some cases this malfunction cannot be
repaired.
On the temperature of the camera
Your camera and battery may get hot due to continuous use, but it is not a
malfunction.
On moisture condensation
If the camera is brought directly from a cold to a warm location, moisture may
condense inside or outside the camera. This moisture condensation may cause
a malfunction of the camera.
How to prevent moisture condensation
When bringing the camera from a cold place to a warm place, seal the camera
in a plastic bag and allow it to adapt to conditions at the new location over
about an hour.
If moisture condensation occurs
Turn off the camera and wait about an hour for the moisture to evaporate. Note
that if you attempt to shoot with moisture remaining inside the lens, you will
be unable to record clear images.
On the internal rechargeable battery
This camera has an internal rechargeable battery for maintaining the date and
time and other settings regardless of whether the power is on or off, or the
battery is installed or not. This rechargeable battery is continually charged as
long as you are using the camera. However, if you use the camera for only
short periods, it discharges gradually, and if you do not use the camera at all
for about 3 months it becomes completely discharged. In this case, be sure to
charge this rechargeable battery before using the camera. However, even if
this rechargeable battery is not charged, you can still use the camera as long as
you do not record the date and time. If the camera resets the settings to the
defaults each time you charge the battery, the internal rechargeable battery
may be dead. Consult your Sony dealer or local authorized Sony service
facility.

On recording/playback
• When you use a memory card with this camera for the first time, it is
recommended that you format the card using the camera for stable
performance of the memory card before shooting. Note that formatting
permanently erases all data on the memory card, and is unrecoverable. Save
precious data on a computer, etc.
• If you repeatedly record/delete images, fragmentation of data may occur on
the memory card. Movies may not be able to be saved or recorded. In such a
case, save your images to a computer or other storage location, then format
the memory card.
• The recorded contents cannot be compensated for even if recording or
playback is not possible due to a malfunction of the camera or memory card,
etc.
• To avoid the potential risk of data loss, always copy (back up) data to other
medium.
• Before you record one-time events, make a trial recording to make sure that
the camera is working correctly.
• This camera is neither dust-proof, nor splash-proof, nor water-proof.
• Do not aim the camera at the sun or other bright light. It may cause the
malfunction of the camera.
• Do not look at the sun or a strong light through a removed lens. This may
cause irrecoverable damage to your eyes. Or it may cause a malfunction of
the lens.
• Do not use the camera near a location that generates strong radio waves or
emits radiation. The camera may not be able to record or play back properly.
• Using the camera in sandy or dusty locations may cause malfunctions.
• Do not shake or strike the camera. In addition to malfunctions and an
inability to record images, this may render the memory card unusable, or
cause image data breakdown, damage or loss.
• Clean the flash surface with a soft cloth. The heat of flash emission may
cause dirt to adhere on the flash surface, resulting in smoking or scorching.
• Keep the camera, supplied accessories, etc., out of the reach of children. A
memory card, etc., may be swallowed. If such problem occurs, consult a
doctor immediately.
