Notes and Safety Instructions
Television programs, video tapes, DVD titles, films, and other program materials may be copydghted.
Unauthorized copying of copyrighted matedal may be against the law.
1. Asudden rise in atmosphedc temperature may cause condensation to form inside the camcorder.
for example:
- When you move the camcorder from a cold location to a warm location (e.g. from outside to inside during winter.)
- When you move the camcorder from a cool location to a hot location (e.g. from inside to outside during the summer.)
2. If the F6q(DEW) protection feature is activated, leave the camcorder for at least two hours in a dry,warm room with the
cassette compartment opened and the battery pack removed.
1. Do not leave the camcorder exposed to high temperature (above 60°C or 140°F).
For example, in a parked car in the sun or exposed to direct sunlight.
2. Do not let the camcorder get wet.
Keep the camcorder away from rain, sea water, and any other form of moisture. If the camcorder gets wet, it may get

A
Make sure that the battery pack is fully charged before starting to record.
To preserve battery power, keep your camcorder turned off when you are not
operating it.
If your camcorder is in CAM mode, and it is left in STBY mode without
being operated for more than 5 minutes with a tape installed, it will
automatically turn itself off to protect against unnecessary battery discharge.
Make sure that the battery pack is fitted firmly into place.
Dropping the battery pack may damage it.
A brand new battery pack is not charged.
Before using the battery pack, you need to charge it completely.
It is a good idea to use the viewfinder rather than the LCD when making a long
recordings, because the LCD uses up more battery power.
To ensure normal recording and a clear picture, clean the video heads regularly. If a square block-shape distorts playback,
or only a blue screen is displayed, the video heads may be dirty. If this happens, clean the video heads with a dry type
cleaning cassette.
Do not use a wet-type cleaning cassette. It may damage the video heads.

Notes and Safety Instructions
-
Do not film with the camera lens pointing directly at the sun.
Direct sunlight can damage the CCD(Charge Coupled Device).
1. Do not position the camcorder such that the viewfinder is pointing towards the sun.
Direct sunlight can damage the inside of the viewfinder. Be careful when placing the camcorder under sunlight or near a
window exposed to sunlight.
2. Do not pick up the camcorder from the viewfinder.
3. Over pulling of the viewfinder may damage it.
1. The LCD display has been manufactured using high precision technology. However, there may be tiny dots (red, blue or green in color)
that appear on the LCD display.
These dots are normal and do not affect the recorded picture in any
way.
2. When you use the LCD display under direct sunlight or outdoors,
it maybe difficult to see the picture clearly.
If this occurs, we recommend using the viewfinder.
3. Direct sunlight can damage the LCD monitor.
-
To ensure a steady picture during filming, check that the hand strap is propedy adjusted.
Do not fome your hand into the hand strap as you could damage it.
