FCC/IC NOTICE
HD Camcorder, VIXIA HF R32 / VIXIA HF R30 / VIXIA HF R300 systems
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two
conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any
interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
Note: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for class B digital device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can
radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and use in accordance with the instructions, may
cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off
and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following
measures:
•
•
•
•
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Use of shielded cable is required to comply with class B limits in Subpart B of Part 15 of FCC Rules.
Do not make any changes or modifications to the equipment unless otherwise specified in the
manual. If such changes or modifications should be made, you could be required to stop operation
of the equipment.

The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems are associated with using
low-power wireless devices. There is no proof, however, that these low power wireless devices are
absolutely safe. Low-power wireless devices emit low levels of radio frequency energy (RF) in the
microwave range while being used. Whereas high levels of RF can produce health effects (by
heating tissue), exposure to low-level RF that does not produce heating effects causes no known
adverse health effects. Many studies of low-level RF exposures have not found any biological
effects. Some studies have suggested that some biological effects might occur, but such findings
have not been confirmed by additional research. This model has been tested and found to comply
with FCC/IC radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled equipment and meets the FCC
radio frequency (RF) Exposure Guidelines in Supplement C to OET65 and RSS-102 of the IC radio
frequency (RF) Exposure rules.

IMPORTANT
C
• The battery pack will be charged only when the camcorder is off.
• Do not connect to the camcorder’s DC IN terminal or to the compact power
adapter any electrical equipment that is not expressly recommended for
use with this camcorder.
• Do not connect the supplied compact power adapter to voltage converters
or special power sources such as those on aircraft, DC-AC inverters, etc.
NOTES
• We recommend charging the battery pack in temperatures between 10 °C
and 30 °C (50 °F and 86 °F). If either the ambient temperature or the
battery pack’s temperature is outside the range of approx. 0 °C to 40 °C
(32 °F to 104 °F), charging will not start.
• If remaining battery time is an issue, you can power the camcorder using
the compact power adapter so the battery pack will not be consumed.
• Charged battery packs continue to discharge naturally. Therefore, charge
them on the day of use, or the day before, to ensure a full charge.
16
Charging the Battery Pack
• We recommend that you prepare battery packs to last 2 to 3 times longer
than you think you might need.
• USA and Canada only: The Lithium ion/polymer battery that
powers the product is recyclable. Please call
1-800-8-BATTERY for information on how to recycle this
