Safety Instructions

• Children should be supervised in order to ensure that they do not play with the device. This device is not intended to be used by individuals with limited physical, sensory or intellectual abilities or limited experience, and/or a lack of knowledge (including children), unless they are being supervised by an individual responsible for their safety or receive instructions from them concerning how the device must be used.

Also, keep the plastic packaging out of reach for children to avoid danger of suffocation.

Preventing electric shocks

• Never open the camcorder casing or mains adapter plug except to insert the battery.

• Connect the mains adapter plug to a professionally installed 230 V, 50 Hz mains socket.

To remove the mains adapter quickly and easily from the mains in an emergency, the socket must be easily accessible and close to the appliance.

Do not bend or crush the mains cable.

Take measures to prevent moisture or liquid from penetrating the camcorder or mains adapter.

• Do not touch the mains cable with wet hands.

Never use the camcorder if the mains adapter is damaged.

Always have repairs carried out by qualified professionals.

Switch the camcorder off immediately if it malfunctions.

Do not allow the camcorder or mains adapter to come into contact with rain or be splashed by water.

• Do not place containers containing liquid, e.g. vases, on the appliance, the mains adapter or near to these and protect all parts of the device from rain and water. The container may tip over and the liquid will impair the electrical safety.

Risk of explosion

Never expose batteries or rechargeable batteries to excessive heat such as sunshine, fire or similar.

• Do not throw batteries into a fire.

Never short-circuit any (rechargeable) batteries.

Do not dismantle (rechargeable) batteries.

4

CAUTION! There is a risk of explosion if rechargeable batteries are replaced incorrectly. Replace only with the same or equivalent type.

Preventing fire hazards

Always uncoil the entire length of the mains cable.

Ensure there is adequate ventilation and never cover the mains adapter.

Do not place naked flames such as lit candles on or near the unit.

Risk of poisoning

Keep the battery out of reach of children.

Risk of chemical burns

If the battery is depleted remove it from the device immediately. There is an increased risk of leakage. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and mucous membranes. If these areas come into contact with battery acid, rinse them immediately with plenty of clean water and contact a doctor immediately.

Preventing damage to the eyes

Do not use the flash close to anyone's eyes.

Always maintain a minimum distance of one metre when using the flash, especially with small children.

When using the camera function do not direct the flash towards the eyes of people or animals.

5

Preventing damage to the ears

• Give careful consideration to volume levels when using ear or headphones.

Volume levels that are too high can produce excessive pressure and can lead to loss of hearing.

Important!

Excessive volume when using earphones and headphones may lead to hearing damage and/or the loss of hearing. Set the volume to the lowest level before the playback.

Start the playback and increase the volume to the level that is comfortable for you.

It may cause damage to the hearing of the listener if a device is operated through headphones with increased volume for a longer period.

Preventing damage to the camcorder

If the battery is leaking remove it from the camcorder immediately. Clean the contacts before inserting a new battery.

• Use type NP60 lithium-ion batteries only.

• Before inserting the battery, check that the contacts in the camcorder and on the batteries are clean. Clean the battery connections if necessary with a clean, dry cloth or an eraser.

Do not touch the lens or lens mounting.

Preventing damage to the battery

Never insert the battery the wrong way round. Always ensure the correct polarity at the +/- terminals.

Never allow the battery to come into contact with liquids.

Direct intense heat can damage the battery. Therefore do not expose the camcorder to any sources of direct heat.

• If the camcorder is not going to be used for long periods, remove the battery.

Preventing breakages

• Do not drop the camcorder.

• Place the strap around your wrist when carrying the camcorder.

6

Preventing data loss

• Never interrupt the power supply when data are being processed.

Preventing damage to SD cards

• Never remove the SD card from the camcorder while it is saving data.

Protecting from condensation

Avoid rapid changes in temperature.

• Place the camcorder in a protective case or plastic bag before exposing it to any sudden changes in temperature.

Do not immediately connect the device to the power supply if the unit has been moved from a cold environment to a warm room. The device can safely be connected for charging as soon as the unit has reached room temperature.

• Do not use or store the camcorder in direct sunlight or at high temperatures.

7

At low temperatures the capacity of the battery can drop significantly due to the reduced speed of the chemical reactions. When recording in cold weather keep a second battery pack in reserve in a warm place (e.g. trouser pocket).

This symbol on the camcorder certifies that the camcorder complies with EU guidelines (European Union) on radiated emissions. CE stands for Conformité Européenne (European conformity)

The Camcorder

Product description

The camcorder provides:

• the functions of a digital camcorder,

• a digital camera,

• an MP3 player,

• a dictation machine, all in one handy device.

Instead of a viewfinder the camcorder has a high-resolution LC display which you can use to check your photos. The LC display also serves to display the on-screen menus in which you can make your settings.

The camcorder has a digital 8x digital zoom and can record films in a maximum resolution of HD 1280x720 and photos in 2592x1944 (5M pixels) / 3744x2808 (llM pixels).

The internal memory has a capacity of 34 MB. You can therefore take photos or record short films even if there is no SD card in the camcorder.

The camcorder can be easily connected via a USB to a computer or via HDMI to an

HD-compatible TV.
