Installing the Digital Video Software
Before you connect the camcorder to the computer with the USB cable for the
first time, you must install the Digital Video Software.
Your digital video camcorder is equipped with the standard Picture Transfer
Protocol (PTP). This protocol enables you to download still images by simply
connecting the camcorder to a computer with the USB cable (using software
such as iPhoto or Image Capture preinstalled on Mac OS X).
However, note that there are several limitations to downloading still images
with this method.
 It may take a few minutes, after connecting the camcorder, until you can
download still images.
 Still images protected on the camcorder may lose this setting once they are
downloaded to the computer.
 When downloading the still images by Image Capture that comes with Mac
OS, the Exif version may change to 2.1 and image information may be
modified. Either install ImageBrowser to download the still images or use the
following procedure.
1) Connect the camcorder to the computer, and start Image Capture.
2) Click [Options].
3) Remove the checkmark from [Embed Colorsync profile] in the
[Download Options] tab and click [OK].
