Before use
Notes on using your camera
Screen language
You can select the language displayed
on the screen using the menu (page 43).
Shooting procedure
This camera has 2 modes for monitoring
subjects: the monitor mode using the
monitor, and the viewfinder mode using the
viewfinder.
Functions built into this camera
• 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.
Creating an image database file
If you insert a memory card that does not
contain an image database file into the
camera and turn on the power, the camera
automatically creates an image database
file using some of the memory card’s
capacity.
The process may take a long time and you
cannot operate the camera until the process
is completed. If a database file error occurs,
export all images to your computer using
PlayMemories Home™, and then format
the memory card using the camera.
GB
12
Shooting with an E-mount lens
compatible APS-C size
This camera is equipped with a 35 mm,
full-frame CMOS sensor. However, the
image size is automatically set to that of the
APS-C size setting and the image size is
smaller when an E-mount lens compatible
APS-C size is used (default settings).
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 monitor, electronic
viewfinder, lens, and image sensor
• The monitor and electronic viewfinder
are manufactured using extremely highprecision technology, and over 99.99%
of the pixels are operational for effective
use. However, there may be some small
black dots and/or bright dots (white, red,
blue or green in color) that constantly
appear on the monitor and electronic
viewfinder. These dots are normal due to
the manufacturing process and do not
affect the images in any way.
• Do not hold the camera by the monitor.
• When using the power zoom lens, be
careful not to draw your fingers or any
other objects caught in the lens.
• 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.
Notes on using your camera
Notes on shooting with the
viewfinder
This camera is equipped with an Organic
Electro-Luminescence viewfinder with
high resolution and high contrast. This
viewfinder achieves a wide viewing angle
and a long eye relief. This camera is
designed to provide an easily viewable
viewfinder by appropriately balancing
various elements.
• The image may be slightly distorted near
the corners of the viewfinder. This is not
a malfunction. When you want to see the
full composition with all its details, you
can also use the monitor.
• If you pan the camera while looking into
the viewfinder or move your eyes around,
the image in the viewfinder may be
distorted or the color of the image may
change. This is a characteristic of the lens
or display device and is not a
malfunction. When you shoot an image,
we recommend that you look at the
center area of the viewfinder.
• When shooting with the viewfinder, you
may experience symptoms such as
eyestrain, fatigue, travel sickness, or
nausea. We recommend that you take a
break at regular intervals when you are
shooting with the viewfinder.
The required length or frequency of the
break may differ depending on the
individuals, so you are advised to decide
at your own discretion. In case you may
feel uncomfortable, refrain from using
the viewfinder until your condition
recovers, and consult your doctor as
necessary.
Notes on recording for long periods
of time
• Depending on the camera and battery
temperature, you may be unable to record
movies or the power may turn off
automatically to protect the camera.
A message will be displayed on the
screen before the power turns off or you
can no longer record movies. In this case,
leave the power off and wait until the
camera and battery temperature goes
down. If you turn on the power without
letting the camera and battery cool
enough, the power may turn off again or
you may be unable to record movies.
• 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.
• The surface of the camera may get warm.
This is not a malfunction.
GB
13
Before use
• 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.

Charging the battery pack
Charging time (Full charge)
The charging time is approximately 150 min. using the AC Adaptor
(supplied), and approximately 220 min. using the battery charger
(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.
GB
49
Preparing the camera
Notes
• The charging time differs depending on the remaining capacity of the battery pack or
charging conditions.
• 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).
• Connect the AC Adaptor (supplied) or the battery charger (supplied) to the nearest
wall outlet (wall socket). If malfunctions occur while using the AC Adaptor or the
battery charger, disconnect the plug from the wall outlet (wall socket) immediately
to disconnect from the power source.
• When the camera is being used for the first time or when you use a battery pack that
has not been used for a long time, the charge lamp/CHARGE lamp may flash
quickly when the battery is charged for the first time. If that happens, remove the
battery pack from the camera and then re-insert it to recharge.
• Do not continuously or repeatedly charge the battery without using it if it is already
fully charged or close to fully charged. Doing so may cause a deterioration in battery
performance.
• 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 the battery pack
Charging by connecting to a computer
The battery pack can be charged by connecting the camera to a computer
using a micro USB cable. Connect the camera to the computer with the
camera turned off.
Notes
• Note the following points when charging via a computer:
– If the camera is connected to a laptop computer that is not connected to a power
source, the laptop battery level decreases. Do not charge for an extended period of
time.
– 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.

• Continuous shooting is possible for approximately 29 minutes (a product
specification limit). The maximum continuous recording time of an MP4
(12M) format movie is about 20 minutes (limited by the 2 GB file size
restriction).
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.
GB

Others
* Only for 1080 60i compatible models.
Checking the number of images and recordable time of movies
• 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 64.
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 is as follows when the camera
starts recording after the power of the camera has been turned off for a while. (The
following values indicate the continuous time from when the camera starts recording
until the camera stops recording.)
Ambient temperature
Continuous recording time for movies
20°C (68°F)
About 29 minutes
30°C (86°F)
About 29 minutes
40°C (104°F)
About 29 minutes
• 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.
