Functions built into this camera
On database files
When you insert a memory card without a
database file into the camera and turn on
the power, part of the memory card
capacity is used to automatically create a
database file. It may take some time until
you can perform the next operation.
If a database file error occurs, import all
images to a computer using “PlayMemories
Home” and format the memory card using
the camera.
• To ensure stable operations of the
memory card, we recommend that you
use this camera to format any memory
card being used with this camera for the
first time.
Note that formatting will erase all data
recorded on the memory card. This data
cannot be restored. Be sure to backup any
important data to a PC or other storage
location.
• 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 PC or other storage
location, then [Format] (page 32).
• Before you start recording, make a trial
recording to make sure that the camera is
working correctly.
• The camera is neither dust-proof, nor
splash-proof, nor water-proof.
• Avoid exposing the camera to water. If
water enters inside the camera, a
malfunction may occur. In some cases,
the camera cannot be repaired.
• Do not aim the camera at the sun or other
bright light. It may cause the malfunction
of the camera.
• Do not use the camera near a location
that generates strong radio waves or
emits radiation. Otherwise, the camera
may not properly record or play back
images.
• Using the camera in sandy or dusty
locations may cause malfunctions.
• If moisture condensation occurs, remove
it before using the camera.
• Do not shake or strike the camera. It may
cause a malfunction and you may not be

GB
11
Before use
• This manual describes 1080 60icompatible devices and 1080 50icompatible devices.
To check whether your camera is a 1080
60i-compatible device or 1080 50icompatible device, check for the
following marks on the bottom of the
camera.
1080 60i-compatible device: 60i
1080 50i-compatible device: 50i
• This camera is compatible with 1080 60p
or 50p-format movies. Unlike standard
recording modes up to now, which record
in an interlacing method, this camera
records using a progressive method. This
increases the resolution, and provides a
smoother, more realistic image.
Notes on recording/playback
Notes on using your camera
• Clean the flash surface before use. The
heat of flash emission may cause dirt on
the flash surface to start smoking or
burning. Wipe the flash surface with a
soft cloth to remove dirt or dust, etc.
Carl Zeiss lens
The camera is equipped with a Carl Zeiss
lens which is capable of reproducing sharp
images with excellent contrast. The lens for
the camera has been produced under a
quality assurance system certified by Carl
Zeiss in accordance with the quality
standards of Carl Zeiss in Germany.
Notes on the flash
• Do not carry the camera by the flash unit,
or use excessive strength on it.
• If water, dust or sand get into the open
flash unit, it may cause a malfunction.
No compensation for damaged
content or recording failure
Sony cannot compensate for failure to
record or loss or damage of recorded
content due to a malfunction of the camera
or recording media, etc.
Back up recommendation
To avoid the data loss, always copy (back
up) data to other media.
Notes on the LCD screen, lens, and
image sensor
• The screen is manufactured using
extremely high-precision technology so
over 99.99% of the pixels are operational
for effective use. However, some tiny
black and/or bright dots (white, red, blue
or green) may appear on the screen.
These dots are a normal result of the
manufacturing process, and do not affect
the recording.
GB

• Do not expose the camera to sunlight or
shoot sunward for a long time. The
internal mechanism may be damaged. If
sunlight is focused on a nearby object, it
may cause a fire.
• Images may trail across on the screen in a
cold location. This is not a malfunction.
When turning on the camera in a cold
location, the screen may become
temporarily dark. When the camera
warms up, the screen will function
normally.
• The recorded image may be different
from the image you monitored before
recording.
Notes on recording for long periods
of time
• When you continue to shoot for a long
time, the temperature of the camera rises.
If the temperature rises above a certain
level, the
icon appears on the screen
and the camera turns itself off
automatically. If the power is turned off,
leave the camera for 10 minutes or longer
to allow the temperature inside the
camera to decrease to a safe level.
• Under high ambient temperatures, the
temperature of the camera rises quickly.
• When the temperature of the camera
rises, the image quality may deteriorate.
It is recommended that you wait until the
temperature of the camera drops before
continuing to shoot.
• Your camera and battery may get hot due
to continuous use, but it is not a
malfunction.

Notes
• If the charge lamp on the camera flashes when the AC Adaptor is connected to the
wall outlet (wall socket), this indicates that charging is temporarily stopped because
the temperature is outside the recommended range. When the temperature gets back
within the appropriate range, the charging resumes. We recommend charging the
battery pack in an ambient temperature of between 10°C to 30°C (50ºF to 86ºF).
• The battery pack may not be effectively charged if the terminal section of the battery
is dirty. In this case, wipe any dust off lightly using a soft cloth or a cotton swab to
clean the terminal section of the battery.
• Connect the AC Adaptor (supplied) to the nearest wall outlet (wall socket). If
malfunctions occur while using the AC Adaptor, disconnect the plug from the wall
outlet (wall socket) immediately to disconnect from the power source.
• When charging is finished, disconnect the AC Adaptor from the wall outlet (wall
socket).
• Be sure to use only genuine Sony brand battery packs, micro USB cable (supplied)
and AC Adaptor (supplied).
Charging time (Full charge)
The charging time is approximately 155 min. using the AC Adaptor
(supplied).
Notes
• The above charging time applies when charging a fully depleted battery pack at a
temperature of 25°C (77°F). Charging may take longer depending on conditions of
use and circumstances.

– Do not turn on/off or restart the computer, or wake the computer to resume from
sleep mode when a USB connection has been established between the computer
and the camera. The camera may cause a malfunction. Before turning on/off, or
restarting the computer or waking the computer from sleep mode, disconnect the
camera and the computer.
– No guarantees are made for charging using a custom-built computer or a modified
computer.

Checking the number of images and recordable time of movies
Notes
• The recordable time of movies varies because the camera is equipped with VBR
(Variable Bit Rate), which automatically adjusts image quality depending on the
shooting scene. When you record a fast-moving subject, the image is clearer but the
recordable time is shorter because more memory is required for recording.
The recordable time also varies depending on the shooting conditions, the subject or
the image quality/size settings.
• The values shown are not for continuous recording time.
• The recording time may differ depending on shooting conditions and the memory
card used.
• When
is indicated, stop recording the movie. The temperature inside the camera
has increased to an unacceptable level.
• For details on movie playback, see page 49.
Notes on continuous movie recording
• It requires a lot of power to perform high quality movie recording or continuous
shooting using the image sensor. Therefore, if you continue to shoot, the temperature
inside the camera will rise, especially that of the image sensor. In such cases, the
camera turns off automatically since higher temperatures affect the quality of the
images or affect the internal mechanism of the camera.
• The duration of time available for movie recording varies with the temperature or
condition of the camera before you start recording. If you frequently recompose or
shoot images after the power is turned on, the temperature inside the camera will rise
and the recording time available will be shorter.
• If the camera stops recording due to the temperature, leave it for several minutes
with the power turned off. Start recording after the temperature inside the camera
drops fully.
• If you observe the following points, the recording time will be longer.
– Keep the camera out of direct sunlight.
– Turn the camera off when it is not being used.
• The maximum size of a movie file is about 2 GB. When the file size is about 2 GB,
recording stops automatically when [File Format] is set to [MP4], and a new movie
file is created automatically when [File Format] is set to [AVCHD].
• The maximum continuous recording time is 29 minutes.
