Charging the battery pack while it is inserted in the camera
When using the camera for the first time, be sure to charge the battery pack. The charged battery pack will discharge
little by little, even if you do not use it. To avoid missing a shooting opportunity, charge the battery pack before shooting.
1
Turn the power off.
2
Connect the camera with the battery pack inserted to the AC Adaptor (supplied) using the micro USB cable
(supplied), and connect the AC Adaptor to the wall outlet (wall socket).
A: Charge lamp
Lit (orange): Charging
Off: Charging finished
Flashing (orange): Charging error or charging paused temporarily because the camera is not within the proper
temperature range
If the charge lamp lights up once and then immediately turns off, the battery pack is fully charged.
Charging time (Full charge)
The charging time is approximately 135 min. using the AC Adaptor (supplied).
The charging time may differ depending on the remaining capacity of the battery pack or the charging conditions.
The battery pack can be charged even when it is not fully depleted.
The above charging time applies when charging a fully depleted battery pack (supplied) at a temperature of 25°C
(77°F). Charging may take longer depending on the conditions of use and the environment.
20
Note
If the charge lamp flashes when the battery pack is not fully charged, remove the battery pack or disconnect the USB cable from
the camera and then re-insert it to recharge.
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 at an ambient temperature of
between 10°C to 30°C (50ºF to 86ºF).
Use a nearby wall outlet (wall socket) when using the AC Adaptor/Battery Charger. If any malfunction occurs, disconnect the plug
from the wall outlet (wall socket) immediately to disconnect from the power source. If you use the product with a charge lamp,
note that the product is not disconnected from the power source even when the lamp turns off.
When you use a completely new battery pack or a battery pack that has not been used for a long time, the charge lamp may flash
quickly when the battery is charged. If this happens, remove the battery pack or disconnect the USB cable from the camera and
then re-insert it to recharge.
Do not continuously or repeatedly charge the battery pack 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 cables (supplied) and AC Adaptors (supplied).

1
Turn off the product, and connect to the USB terminal of the computer.
Note
Note the following points when charging via a computer:
If the product is connected to a laptop computer that is not connected to a power source, the laptop battery level decreases. Do
not leave the product connected to a laptop computer for an extended period of time.
Do not turn on/off or restart the computer, or wake the computer from sleep mode when a USB connection has been
established between the computer and the camera. Doing so may cause a malfunction. Before turning on/off or restarting the
computer, or waking the computer from sleep mode, disconnect the camera from the computer.
Proper operation cannot be guaranteed on all types of computers.
Charging cannot be guaranteed with a custom-built computer, modified computer, or a computer connected through a USB
hub.
The camera may not operate correctly when other USB devices are used at the same time.

Supplying power from a wall outlet (wall socket)
By using the supplied AC adaptor, you can shoot and playback images while the power is supplied from a wall outlet
(wall socket).
1
Connect the camera to the wall outlet (wall socket) with a micro USB cable (supplied) and an AC adaptor
(supplied).
Note
Before you shoot or play back images with power supplied from a wall outlet (wall socket), insert a charged battery pack into the

Note
When a microSDHC memory card is used to record XAVC S or MP4 movies over extended periods of time, the recorded movies
will be divided into files of 4 GB. The divided files can be integrated into a single file using PlayMemories Home.
Not all memory cards are guaranteed to operate correctly.
When you use a memory card with the camera for the first time, it is recommended that you format the card on the camera before
use for more stable performance of the memory card.
Note that formatting erases all data on the memory card permanently, and is irreversible. Save valuable data on a computer, etc.
Images recorded on a microSDXC memory card cannot be imported to or played on computers or AV devices that are not
compatible with exFAT when connected using a micro USB cable. Make sure that the device is compatible with exFAT before
connecting it to the camera. If you connect your camera to an incompatible device, you may be prompted to format the card.
Never format the card in response to this prompt, as doing so will erase all data on the card. (exFAT is the file system used on
microSDXC memory cards.)

Shooting images underwater
You can also use this camera underwater. In underwater shooting, the brightness and the white balance are different
from what they would be under ordinary shooting conditions. It is recommended that you shoot images with the settings
below when you shoot images underwater using this camera alone or with the housing (sold separately).
Set a faster shutter speed (for still images)
In underwater shooting, the subject becomes darker than under ordinary shooting conditions, even if you are shooting
outdoors. Set a faster shutter speed because the camera or subject tends to shake in underwater shooting.
If [Shoot Mode] is set to [Program Auto], set [ISO AUTO Min. SS] to [Faster] or set [ISO] to a higher value to make
the shutter speed faster.
If [Shoot Mode] is set to [Manual Exposure], set a faster [Shutter Speed].
The shutter speed will be slower if the ISO sensitivity is low.
In [ISO AUTO] mode, set [ISO AUTO Maximum] to a higher value to make the shutter speed faster.
Change the [White Balance] setting (for still images/movies)
In underwater shooting, the appropriate white balance is different from the white balance under ordinary shooting
conditions.
Set [White Balance] to [Underwater Auto].
Note
The optical specifications in this manual were measured in air. Underwater, the minimum shooting distance at which the camera
can focus is approximately 1.3 times that in air, and the angle of view is approximately 0.7 times that in air.

The bracket indicator is displayed as follows in ambient light* bracketing with the bracket range set to 0.3 EV and the
number of shots set to 3.
*
Ambient light: A generic term for non-flash light including natural light, electric bulb and fluorescent lighting. Whereas the flash light blinks for a
moment, ambient light is constant, so this kind of light is called “ambient light.”
When the exposure compensation value is set to ±0.0 EV
When MM (Metered Manual) indicates -1.0 EV
During bracket shooting, guides for each shot are displayed on the bracket indicator.
When you start bracket shooting, the guides will disappear one by one as the camera shoots images.

Sensitivity to light is expressed by the ISO number (recommended exposure index). The larger the number, the higher
the sensitivity.

MENU →
(Camera Settings1) → [ISO] → desired setting.
Menu item details
Multi Frame NR:
Combines continuous shots to create an image with less noise. Select the desired ISO number from [ISO AUTO] or ISO
200 – 25600.
ISO AUTO:
Sets the ISO sensitivity automatically.
ISO 80 – ISO 12800:
Sets the ISO sensitivity manually. Selecting a larger number increases the ISO sensitivity.
Note
[ISO AUTO] is selected when using the following functions:
[Intelligent Auto]
[Superior Auto]
When [ISO] is set to a value lower than ISO 125, the range for recordable subject brightness (dynamic range) may decrease.
The higher the ISO value, the more noise will appear on the images.
The available ISO settings will differ depending on whether you are shooting still images, shooting movies, or using HFR.
When shooting movies, ISO values between ISO 125 and ISO 12800 are available. If the ISO value is set to a value smaller than
ISO 125, the setting is automatically switched to ISO 125. When you finish recording the movie, the ISO value returns to the
original setting.
When you use [Multi Frame NR], it takes some time for the product to perform the overlay processing of images.
Hint
You can change the automatically set ISO sensitivity range for the [ISO AUTO] mode. Select [ISO AUTO] and press the right

STD (Standard):
The camera automatically sets the shutter speed.
SLOW (Slow)/SLOWER (Slower):
The ISO sensitivity will start to change at shutter speeds slower than [Standard], so you can shoot images with less

The ISO sensitivity starts to change at the shutter speed you have set.
Hint
The difference in shutter speed at which ISO sensitivity starts to change between [Faster], [Fast], [Standard], [Slow], and [Slower]
is 1 EV.
Note
If the exposure is insufficient even when the ISO sensitivity is set to [ISO AUTO Maximum] in [ISO AUTO], in order to shoot with

Color Depth
If you change [Gamma], the available ISO value range changes.
When using S-Log2 gamma, the noise becomes more noticeable compared to when using other gammas. If the noise still is
significant even after processing pictures, it may be improved by shooting with a brighter setting. However, the dynamic range
becomes narrower accordingly when you shoot with a brighter setting. We recommend checking the picture in advance by test
shooting when using S-Log2.
Setting [ITU709(800%)] or [S-Log2] may cause an error in the white balance custom setup. In this case, perform custom setup
with a gamma other than [ITU709(800%)] or [S-Log2] first, and then reselect [ITU709(800%)] or [S-Log2] gamma.
Setting [ITU709(800%)] or [S-Log2] disables the [Black Level] setting.
If you set [Slope] to +5 in [Manual Set], [Knee] is set to [Off].
S-Gamut is a color space unique to Sony that provides a wide color space equivalent to film cameras. However, S-Gamut setting
of this camera does not support the whole color space of S-Gamut; it is a setting to realize a color reproduction equivalent to SGamut.

Adjusting the settings for super-slow-motion shooting (HFR Settings)
Sets the High Frame Rate shooting settings.
1
MENU →
(Camera Settings2) → [
HFR Settings] → desired setting.
Menu item details
Record Setting:
Selects the frame rate of the movie from [60p 50M]/[50p 50M], [30p 50M]/[25p 50M], and [24p 50M]*.
*
Only when [NTSC/PAL Selector] is set to NTSC.
Frame Rate:
Selects the shooting frame rate from [240fps]/[250fps], [480fps]/[500fps], and [960fps]/[1000fps].
This setting determines the minimum shutter speed per frame.
Priority Setting:
Select [Quality Priority] or [Shoot Time Priority]. If you select [Shoot Time Priority], the recordable duration is longer than
in [Quality Priority] mode.
REC Timing:
Selects whether to record a set amount of time after pressing the SHUTTER/MOVIE button ([Start Trigger]), or to record
for a set amount of time until you press the SHUTTER/MOVIE button ([End Trigger]).
Frame rate
In super-slow-motion movie shooting, the camera shoots at a faster shutter speed than the number of shooting frames
per second. For example, when [
Frame Rate] is set to [960fps], the shutter speed per frame will be faster than
approx. 1/1000 second in order to shoot 960 frames per second. To maintain this shutter speed, sufficient ambient light is
necessary during shooting. If the ambient light is insufficient, the ISO sensitivity will become higher, resulting in more
noise.
Timing of recording
Depending on the [
REC Timing] setting, the relationship between when you press the SHUTTER/MOVIE button and
the recorded section of the movie is as shown below.
: The point when the SHUTTER/MOVIE button is pressed
: Recorded section
: Recording to memory card in progress (You cannot start the next session of shooting while the camera is
recording to the memory card.)
: Buffering in progress
[Start Trigger]
Movie capturing (shooting) starts when the SHUTTER/MOVIE button is pressed. When the SHUTTER/MOVIE button is
pressed again, or when the recordable duration of time has elapsed, movie capturing ends and the camera starts to
record the captured movie to the memory card.
[End Trigger]
122
Buffering (temporarily capturing a movie on the camera) starts once the shooting standby screen is displayed. When the
captured data fills the buffering capacity, old data is overwritten sequentially. When you press the SHUTTER/MOVIE
button, the camera starts to record a movie of the maximum recordable duration calculated retroactively from that point
on the memory card.
To redo shooting
You can cancel recording by selecting [Cancel] on the screen. However, the movie recorded up to the point you
cancelled will be saved.
Playback speed
The playback speed will vary as below depending on the assigned [
Frame Rate] and [
Record Setting].

Notes on the battery pack
Charging the battery pack
Charge the battery pack (supplied) before using the product for the first time.
The charged battery pack will discharge little by little even if you do not use it. Charge the battery pack each time
before you use the product so that you do not miss any opportunities to shoot images.
You can charge the battery pack even if it is not completely discharged. You can use a partially charged battery pack.
If the charge lamp flashes when the battery pack is not fully charged, remove the battery pack or disconnect the USB
cable from the camera and then reinsert it to recharge.
We recommend charging the battery pack at an ambient temperature between 10°C and 30°C (50°F and 86°F). The
battery pack may not charge normally at temperatures outside this range.
When you connect this product and a laptop computer that is not connected to a power source, the laptop’s battery
charge may decrease. Do not charge this product using the laptop computer for too long.
Do not turn on/restart a computer, wake a computer from sleep mode, or turn off a computer while this product is
connected to the computer via USB cable. Doing so may cause a malfunction of this product. Disconnect the product
and the computer before performing the above operations.
We do not guarantee charging if you are using a self-built or modified computer.
Charging time (Full charge)
The charging time is approximately 135 minutes using the AC adaptor (supplied).
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.
Effective use of the battery pack
Battery performance decreases in low temperature environments. So in cold places, the operational time of the
battery pack is shorter. To ensure longer battery pack use, we recommend putting the battery pack in your pocket
close to your body to warm it up, and insert it in the product immediately before you start shooting. If there are any
metal objects such as keys in your pocket, be careful of causing a short-circuit.
The battery pack will become depleted more quickly if you use the continuous shooting function frequently, turn the
power on/off frequently, or set the monitor to be very bright.
We recommend preparing spare battery packs and taking trial shots before taking the actual shots.
Do not expose the battery pack to water. The battery pack is not water-resistant.
Do not leave the battery pack in extremely hot places, such as in a car or under direct sunlight.
If the battery terminal is dirty, you may not be able to turn on the product or the battery pack may not be properly
charged. In that case, clean the battery by lightly wiping off any dust using a soft cloth or a cotton swab.
Remaining battery indicator
The remaining battery indicator appears on the screen.
A: Battery level high
B: Battery exhausted
It takes about one minute for the correct remaining battery indicator to appear.
257
The correct remaining battery indicator may not be displayed under some operating or environmental conditions.
If you do not operate the product for a certain period of time while the power is on, the product turns off automatically
(Auto power-off function).
If the remaining battery time does not appear on the screen, press the DISP (Display Setting) button to display it.
How to store the battery pack
To maintain the battery pack’s function, charge the battery pack and then fully discharge it in the product at least
once a year before storing it. Remove the battery pack from the camera and store the battery in a cool, dry place.
To use the battery pack up, leave the product in slide show playback mode until the power goes off.
To prevent staining the terminal, short-circuiting, etc., be sure to use a plastic bag to keep away from metal materials
when carrying or storing the battery pack.
On battery life
The battery life is limited. If you use the same battery repeatedly, or use the same battery for a long period, the
battery capacity decreases gradually. If the available time of the battery is shortened significantly, it is probably time
to replace the battery pack with a new one.
The battery life varies according to how the battery pack is stored and the operating conditions and environment in
which each battery pack is used.

Charging the battery pack
The supplied AC Adaptor is dedicated to this product. Do not connect with other electronic devices. Doing so may
cause a malfunction.
Make sure to use a genuine Sony AC Adaptor.
If the product's charge lamp flashes while charging, remove the battery pack being charged, and then insert the
same battery pack firmly back into the product. If the charge lamp flashes again, this may indicate a faulty battery or
that a battery pack other than the specified type has been inserted. Check that the battery pack is the specified type.
If the battery pack is the specified type, remove the battery pack, replace it with a new or different one and check that
the newly inserted battery is charging correctly. If the newly inserted battery is charging correctly, the previously
inserted battery may be faulty.
If the charge lamp flashes even if the AC Adaptor is connected to the product and the wall outlet (wall socket), this
indicates that charging has stopped temporarily and is on standby. Charging stops and enters standby status
automatically when the temperature is outside of the recommended operating temperature. When the temperature
returns to the appropriate range, charging resumes and the charge lamp lights up again. We recommend charging
the battery pack in an ambient temperature of between 10°C to 30°C (50°F to 86°F).
If you turn on the camera while charging the battery pack, power will be supplied from the wall outlet (wall socket).
You can shoot or play back images while power is being supplied, but the battery pack will not charge.

Note
The continuous recordable time for movies is approximately 13 hours at maximum.
The recordable time of movies varies because the product 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 are defined using Sony standard memory cards for testing.
Notes on continuous movie recording
It requires a lot of power to perform high quality movie recording or continuous shooting. Therefore, if you continue to
shoot, the temperature inside the camera will rise, especially that of the image sensor. In such cases, the camera will
turn off automatically because the surface of the camera is heated to a high temperature or the high temperature

available will be shorter.

icon appears, the temperature of the camera has risen.
If the camera stops recording due to the temperature, leave it for some time with the power turned off. Start recording
after the temperature inside the camera drops fully.
If you observe the following points, you will be able to record movies for longer periods of time.
Keep the camera out of direct sunlight.
Turn the camera off when it is not being used.

AVCHD format
The AVCHD format was developed for high-definition digital video cameras when recording an HD (High-Definition)
signal using high-efficiency compression coding technology. The MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format is used to compress video
data, and the Dolby Digital or Linear PCM system is used to compress audio data.
The MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format is capable of compressing images at higher efficiency than that of the conventional
image compressing format.
As the AVCHD format uses compression coding technology, the picture may be unstable in scenes where the screen,
angle of view, or brightness, etc. change drastically, but this is not a malfunction.
