precautions on use
IMPORTANT NOTE
• Handle the liquid crystal display (LCD) with care:
- The LCD is a very delicate display device: Do not press its surface with excessive force, hit it or prick it with a
sharp object.
- If you push the LCD surface, unevenness in display may occur. If unevenness does not disappear, turn the
camcorder off, wait for a few moments, and then turn it on again.
- Do not place the camcorder with the open LCD screen down.
- Close the LCD monitor when not using the camcorder
• Liquid crystal display:
- The LCD screen is a product of high precision technology. Out of the total pixels (approx. 112,000 pixels of an
LCD monitor ), 0.01% or less pixels may be out (black dots) or may remain lit as coloured dots (red, blue, and
green). This shows the limitations of the current technology, and does not indicate a fault that will interfere with
recording.
- The LCD screen will be slightly dimmer than usual when the camcorder is at low temperature, as in cold
areas, or right after the power is turned on. Normal brightness will be restored when the temperature inside
the camcorder rises. Note that the foregoing phenomena have no effect on the image in a storage media, so
there is no cause for concern.
• Hold the memory camcorder correctly:
- Do not hold the memory camcorder by the LCD monitor when lifting it: the LCD monitor could detach and
the memory camcorder may fall.
• Do not subject the memory camcorder to impact:
- This memory camcorder is a precision machine. Take great care that you do not strike it against a hard
object or let it fall.
- Do not use the memory camcorder on a tripod in a place where it is subject to severe vibrations or impact.
• No sand or dust!
- Fine sand or dust entering the memory camcorder or AC power adaptor could cause malfunctions or
defects.
• No water or oil!
- Water or oil entering the memory camcorder or AC power adaptor could cause electric shock, malfunctions
or defects.
• Heat on surface of product:
- The surface of the memory camcorder will be slightly warm when using, but this does not indicate a fault.
vi_English
• Be careful of unusual ambient temperature:
-U
sing the memory camcorder in a place where the temperature is over 140°F (40°C) or lower than 32°F (0°C)
may result in abnormal recording/playback.
- Do not leave the memory camcorder on a beach or in a closed vehicle where the temperature is very high
for a long time: This could cause malfunctions.
• Do not point directly at the sun:
- If direct sunlight strikes the lens, the memory camcorder could malfunction or a fire could occur.
- Do not leave the memory camcorder with the LCD screen exposed to direct sunlight:
This could cause malfunction.
• Do not use the memory camcorder near TV or radio:
- This could cause noise to appear on the TV screen or in radio broadcasts.
• Do not use the memory camcorder near strong radio waves or magnetism:
- If the memory camcorder is used near strong radio waves or magnetism, such as near a radio wave tower or electric appliances, noise could enter video and audio that are being recorded. During playback
of normally recorded video and audio, noise may also be present in picture and sound.
At worst the memory camcorder could malfunction.
• Do not expose the memory camcorder to soot or steam:
- Thick soot or steam could damage the memory camcorder case or cause malfunctions.
• Do not use the memory camcorder near corrosive gas:
- If the memory camcorder is used in a place where there is dense exhaust gas generated by gasoline or diesel
engines, or corrosive gas such as hydrogen sulfide, the external or internal terminals could corrode, disabling
normal operation, or the battery connection terminals could corrode, so that power will not turn on.
• Do not use the memory camcorder near ultrasonic humidifier:
- Calcium and other chemicals dissolved in water could scatter in the air, and white particles could adhere to
the optical head of the memory camcorder, which could cause it to operate abnormally.
• Do not clean the memory camcorder body with benzene or thinner:
- The coating of exterior could peel off or the case surface could deteriorate.

About battery packs
• T
he benefits of battery pack: Battery pack is small but has a large power capacity. It should be recharged in any environment that is between 32°F (0°C) and 104°F (40°C).
However, when it is exposed to cold temperatures (below 32°F (0°C)), its usage time becomes reduced and it may
cease to function. If this happens, place the battery pack in your pocket or other warm, protected place for a short
time, then reattach it to the memory camcorder.
• The recording time shortens dramatically in a cold environment. The continuous recording times in the operating
instructions are measured using a fully charged battery pack at 77 °F (25 °C). As the environmental temperature
and conditions vary, the remaining battery time may differ from the approximate continuous recording times given
in the instructions.
On handling a battery pack
• To preserve battery power, keep your memory camcorder turned off when you are not operating it.
• For power saving purposes, the memory camcorder will automatically turns off in 5 minutes in standby mode.
(Only if you set "Auto Power Off" from the menu with 5 min.)
• Do not touch, or metallic objects to come into contact with the terminals.
• Make sure that the battery pack fits firmly into place. Do not drop the battery pack.
Dropping the battery pack may damage itself.
• Be careful to keep the battery pack out of the reach of children. There is danger that a child might swallow it.
• Frequent use of the LCD screen or using the fast forward or rewind buttons wears out the battery pack faster.
English_13
preparation
Maintaining the battery pack
• The recording time is affected by temperature and environmental conditions.
• The recording time shortens dramatically in a cold environment. The continuous recording times in the operating
instructions are measured using a fully charged battery pack at 77 °F (25 °C).
As the environmental temperature and conditions vary, the remaining battery time may differ from the approximate
continuous recording times given in the instructions.
• We recommend only using the original battery pack that is available from your Samsung retailer. When the battery
reaches the end of its life, please contact your local dealer. The batteries have to be dealt with as chemical waste.
• Clean the terminals to remove any foreign substances before inserting the battery.
• Do not put the battery pack near any heat source (i.e. fire or a heater).
• Do not disassemble, apply pressure to, or heat the battery pack.
• Do not allow the + and - terminals of the battery pack to be short-circuited.
It may cause leakage, heat generation, induce overheating or fire.
- Do not expose the battery pack to water. The battery pack is not water resistant.
• When fully discharged, a battery pack damages the internal cells.
The battery pack may be prone to leakage when fully discharged.
• Remove from charger or powered unit when not in use. Even when the power is switched off, the battery pack will
still discharge if it is left attached to the memory camcorder.
• When not using the memory camcorder for an extended period:
It is recommended that you fully charge the battery pack once a year, attach it to memory camcorder and use it up
: then remove the battery pack and store it in a cool place again.
About the battery life
• Battery capacity decreases over time and through repeated use. If decreased usage time between charges
becomes significant, it is probably time to replace it with a new one.
• Each battery's life is governed by storage, operating and environmental conditions.
Use only approved battery packs.
Otherwise, there is a danger of overheating, fire or explosion.
Samsung is not responsible for problems occurring due to using unapproved batteries.

Continuous Recording (without zoom)
The continuous recording time of memory camcorder in the table shows the available recording time when the
memory camcorder is in the recording mode without using any other function after recording started.
In actual recording, the battery pack may discharge 2-3 times faster than this reference since the record start/stop
and zoom are being operated, and playback is performed. Assume that the recordable time with a fully charged
battery pack is between 1/2 and 1/3 of the time in the table, and prepare type and number of battery packs to allow
for the time you are planning to record on the memory camcorder.
Note that the battery pack discharges faster in cold environment.
The charging time will vary depending on the remaining battery level.

• The memory camcorder provides three quality options for movie recordings:
- " Super Fine", "Fine", "Normal". For a same scene, higher quality setting will retain the better image
with bigger data size in the order of "Super Fine", "Fine", "Normal".
• The compression rate increases while lowering the quality (in the order of "Fine", "Normal").
The higher the compression rate is, the picture quality is more deteriorated but the recording time will be increased.
• The compression rate automatically adjusts to the recording image, and the recording time may vary accordingly.

ZOOMING
Use the zoom function for close-up or wide-angle recording.
This memory camcorder allows you to record using optical 34x power zoom and
1200x digital zoom.
• You can zoom with the Zoom lever or the zoom (W/T) button on the LCD panel.
• The further you slide the Zoom lever, the quicker the zoom action.
Tozoomin
• Slide the Zoom lever towards T (telephoto).
Tozoomout
• Slide the Zoom lever towards W (wide-angle).
• Zoom magnification over 34x is done through digital image processing,
and is therefore called digital zoom. Digital zooming is possible up to 1200x.

You can also zoom with the Zoom (W/T) button on the LCD panel.
The minimum possible distance between camcorder and subject while
maintaining sharp focus is about 1 cm (about 0.39 inch) for wide angle
and 50 cm (about 19.68 inch) for telephoto.
Focusing may become unstable during zooming. In this case, set the
zoom before recording and lock the focus by using the manual focus,
then zoom in or out during recording. ➥page 53
Optical zoom preserves the movie quality, but during digital zoom the

CAUTION
When there is condensation, put aside for a while before using
• What is condensation?
Condensation happens when a memory camcorder is moved to a place where there is a significant
temperature difference from the previous place. In other words, the water vapor in the air turns into dew
because of the temperature difference, and it condensates like dew on the external or internal lenses of
the memory camcorder and on the reflection lens.
When this happens, you temporarily may not use the record or play functions of the memory camcorder.
Also, it may cause a malfunction or damage to the memory camcorder when using the device with the
power on while there is condensation.
• What can I do?
Turn the power off and detach the battery pack, and leave it in a dry area for 1~2 hours before using it.
• When does the condensation occur?
When the device is relocated to a place with a higher temperature than the previous location, or when
using it in a hot area suddenly, it will cause condensation.
- When recording outside in cold weather during the winter and then using it in indoors.
- When recording outside in hot weather after being indoors or inside a car where the AC was running.
Note before sending your camcorder for repair.
• If these instructions do not solve your problem, contact your nearest Samsung authorized service centre.
• Depending on the problem, current hard disk may need to be initialized or replaced and the data will be
deleted. Be sure to back up the data on the hard disk on the other storage media before sending your
camcorder to repair. Samsung cannot guarantee any loss of your data.
