Handling a memory card
The camcorder supports SD, SDHC, and SDXC
memory cards, giving you a wider choice of cards!
• Damaged data may not be recoverable. We recommend you make
a back-up of important data separately on the hard disk of your PC.
• Turning the power off or removing a memory card during an
operation such as formatting, deleting, recording, and playback may
cause data loss.
• If you modify the name of a file or folder stored in the memory card
with your PC, your camcorder may not recognise the modified file.
• The memory card does not support any data recovery mode.
Therefore, care should be taken in case the memory card is
damaged while recording.
• Make sure to format the memory card on this camcorder. If the
memory card had been formatted by a PC or other device, using
it on this camcorder without reformatting it on the camcorder may
result in trouble with recording and/or playback. Samsung is not
responsible for damage to recorded contents caused by a failure to
format the memory card properly.
• You have to format newly-purchased memory cards and memory
cards with data that your camcorder cannot recognise or with data
saved by other devices. Note that formatting erases all data on the
memory card and deleted data cannot be recovered.
• A memory card has a certain life span. If you cannot record new
data, you have to purchase a new memory card.
• Do not bend, drop, or subject the card to strong impacts.
• Do not place foreign substances on the memory card terminals.
Use a soft dry cloth to clean the terminals if required.
• Do not paste anything other than the label provided with the card
on the label pasting area of the card.
• Do not use a damaged memory card.
• Be careful to keep the memory card out of the reach of children,
who might swallow it.
Getting Started
The data storage speed of cards may differ, depending on the
manufacturer and production system.
• SLC (single level cell) system: faster write speed enabled.
• MLC (multi level cell) system: only lower write speed is supported.
For best results, we recommend using a memory card that supports
a faster write speed.
Using a lower write speed memory card for recording video may
cause difficulties when storing.
You may even lose your video data during the recording. In an
attempt to preserve every bit of the recorded video on a low speed
card, the camcorder forcibly stores the video on the memory card
and displays a warning:
Low speed card. Please record at a lower resolution.
If you are unavoidably using a low speed memory card, the resolution
and quality of the recording may be lower than the value you set.
page 98
The higher the video resolution and quality, the more memory the
camcorder uses.
• Samsung is not responsible for data loss due to misuse, including
loss caused by any PC virus.
• We recommend using a memory card case to avoid data loss that
can be caused by moving the card or by static electricity.
• After a period of use, the memory card may get warm. This is normal
and is not a malfunction.

such as between a wall and a piece of furniture.
Connect the AC power adaptor to the camcorder properly, and then
plug the AC power adaptor in the wall outlet.
• When charging, if both the USB cable and AC power adaptor are
connected, the AC power adaptor will override the USB.
• You cannot operate the camcorder using USB power only. Use the
AC power adaptor or battery to power the camcorder.
• USB charging time may depend on the type of USB host on your
PC.
• If you use the camcorder while you are charging the battery, charging
may take longer.
• Be sure to use the included AC power adaptor to power the
camcorder. Using other AC power adaptors could cause electric
shock or result in fire.
• You can use the AC power adaptor around the world. However, you
will need an AC plug adaptor that matches the design of local wall
outlets in some foreign countries. If you need an adaptor, purchase it
from your distributor.
Using the USB cable
Connect the USB cable to the camcorder properly, and then connect
the other end to a USB port of a PC.

Continuous Recording (without zoom)
Using an AC power source
The continuous recording time above shows the available recording
time when you record without using any other function after recording
starts. The battery may discharge 2-3 times faster than this reference
if you use the recording start/stop, the zoom, and the playback
functions. Prepare additional batteries with the expectation that the
actual recording time is about 1/3 to 1/2 of the times listed above.
Getting Started
We recommend that you use the AC power adaptor to power the
camcorder from a household AC outlet when recording and playing
the camcorder indoors. The connection is the same as that for battery
charging. page 20
• The charging time will vary depending on the charge remaining in the
battery.
• Depending on your PC specifications, the charging time can be prolonged.
• The battery is charged over 95% after about 2 hours, and the
indicator colour changes to green. It takes about 2 hours and 40
minutes for the battery to charge 100%.
• The recording and playback times will be shorter when you use your
camcorder in low temperatures.
• We recommend using the AC power adaptor when using the Art
Time Lapse function.

Charging the battery
About the battery
• Battery properties
A lithium-ion battery is small-sized and has a high capacity. Low
ambient temperature (below 50ºF (10ºC)) may shorten its usage
time and affect its function. Before recording in low temperatures,
put the battery into your pocket to warm it, then install it in the
camcorder.
• Make sure to store the battery separately after use.
- A small amount of battery power is consumed when the battery
is stored in the camcorder even if the camcorder power is off.
- The battery may be completely discharged, if it has been
installed and left in the camcorder for a long period of time. If this
occurs, the battery may not fully operate even if you charge it.
- If the battery is not used for a long time, fully charge the battery
and then, using your camcorder, drain the charge completely
once every 3 months to keep the battery functioning properly. To
store the battery, remove it from your camcorder and put it in a
cool, dry place.
• Charge an extra battery before using the camcorder
outdoors in cold temperatures.
- The cold temperature may shorten the available recording time.
- Carry the supplied AC power adaptor to charge the battery while
travelling.
Getting Started
• Check whether the battery terminal is damaged if the battery
falls or is dropped.
- If you install a battery with the damaged terminal into the
camcorder, you can damage the camcorder.
• Remove the battery and the memory card from the
camcorder and disconnect the power adaptor after use.
- Store the battery in a stable, cool and dry place.
(Recommended temperature : 59ºF~77ºF (15ºC~25ºC),
recommended humidity: 40%~60%)
- Temperatures that are too high or too low shorten the battery
lifetime.
- The battery terminals can become rusty or malfunction if the
battery is stored in a smoky or dusty location.
• Recycle or dispose of your dead batteries properly.
• The battery lifetime is limited.
- Battery capacity decreases over time and through repeated use.
If decreased usage time between charges becomes significant,
it is probably time to replace the battery with a new one.
- Each battery’s life is affected by storage, operating, and
environmental conditions.

defines the total minimum recording time for the Art Time Lapse mode. For example, if you set the interval to 5 Sec, you need to set the recording time for
the Art Time Lapse mode to at least 2 minutes and 30 seconds to record a minimum video length of 1 second (25 images).

• We recommend using the power adaptor instead of the battery for Art Time Lapse.
• If the battery charge is exhausted during Art Time Lapse recording, the camcorder saves recording up to that point and switches to standby mode. After a
while, it displays a warning message, and then turns off automatically.
• If the storage media becomes full during Art Time Lapse recording, the camcorder switches to the standby mode after saving the recording up to the

Maintenance
LCD screen
When there is dew condensation, put the camcorder aside
for a while before using
• To prolong its service life, do not rub the LCD screen with a coarse
cloth.
• Be aware of the following LCD screen phenomena. They are not
malfunctions.
- When you use the camcorder, the surface around the LCD
screen may heat up.
- If you leave the power on for a long time, the surface around the
LCD screen becomes hot.
- When using the camcorder in cold conditions, an afterimage
may appear on the LCD screen.
• An LCD screen is manufactured using advanced technology
which creates screens with pixel failure rates of less than 0.01%.
However, a black or bright spot (red, blue, white) may appear in the
centre of the LCD screen and up to two spots may appear outside
the centre. These spots, which are normally incurred during the
manufacturing process, do not affect the recorded images.
• What is dew condensation?
Dew condensation happens when a camcorder is moved to a
location where there is a significant temperature difference from the
previous location. The dew condenses on the external or internal
parts of the camcorder, and on the reflection lens. If there is dew on
or in your camcorder, it may cause the camcorder to malfunction or
damage the camcorder when you turn the power on.
• Exactly when does dew condensation occur?
When you move the camcorder to a location with a higher
temperature than the previous location, or when you move it to a hot
area suddenly. Examples:
-You record outside in cold weather during the winter and then
move the camcorder in indoors.
-You record outside in hot weather after being indoors or inside a
car where the A/C was running.
• What can I do?
-Turn the power off, detach the battery, and leave the camcorder in
a dry area for 1~2 hours before using it.
• Use the camcorder only after dew condensation has completely
disappeared.
• Be sure to use the recommended accessories supplied with the
camcorder. For service, contact your nearest Samsung authorised
service centre.

Using your camcorder abroad
Each country or region has its own electric and colour systems. Before using your camcorder abroad, check the following items.
Power sources
PAL-compatible countries/regions
The AC adaptor provided lets you power, recharge, and use your
camcorder in any country/region that has AC power in the 100 V to
240 V, 50/60 Hz range. You may need a commercially available AC
plug adaptor depending on the design of local wall outlets.
Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, China, CIS, Czech Republic,
Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Great Britain,
Holland, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya,
Malaysia, Mauritius, Norway, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Singapore,
Slovak Republic, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Syria, Thailand,
Tunisia, etc.
On TV colour systems
Your camcorder is an PAL based camcorder. If you want to view your
recordings on a TV or copy them to an external device, it must be
an PAL based TV or external device and have the appropriate Audio/
Video jacks. Otherwise, you may need to use a separate video format
transcoder (For example, an PAL to NTSC format converter).
NTSC-compatible countries/regions
Bahamas, Canada, Central America, Japan, Korea, Mexico,
Philippines, Taiwan, United States of America, etc.
You can make recordings with your camcorder and view pictures
on the LCD screen anywhere in the world.
The format transcoder is not provided by Samsung.

Glossary
AF (Auto Focus)
F. No (F-Number)
A system that automatically focuses the camcorder lens on the subject. Your camcorder
uses the contrast to focus automatically.
The f-number defines the brightness of lens. Smaller number lens has generally brighter
image. The f-number is directly proportional to the focal length and inversely proportional
to the lens diameter.
*F.No=focal length/diameter of lens aperture
Aperture
The aperture controls the amount of light that reaches the camcorder’s sensor.
MPEG-4 AVC/H.264
Camcorder shake (Blur)
MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 defines the latest video coding format standardized by the ISO-IEC
and the ITU-T, in 2003. Compared with the conventional MPEG-2 format, MPEG-4 AVC/
H.264 has more than twice the efficiency. Your camcorder employs MPEG-4 AVC/H.264
to encode high definition videos.
If the camcorder is moved while the shutter is open, the entire image may appear blurred.
This occurs more often when the shutter speed is slow. Prevent camcorder shake by
raising the sensitivity, using a faster shutter speed. Alternately, use a tripod, the DIS or OIS
function to stabilize the camcorder.
Composition
Composition in photography means arranging objects in a photo. Usually, abiding by the
rule of thirds leads to a good composition.
Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor (CMOS)
CMOS is an image sensor producing images approaching the quality of CCD (charge
coupled device) sensors. It consumes less power, meaning a longer battery life on your
camcorder.
Digital zoom
A feature that artificially increases the amount of zoom available with zoom lens (Optical
zoom). When using the Digital zoom, the image quality will deteriorate as the magnification
increases.
Effective Pixel Count
Unlike the total pixel count, this is the actual number of pixels used to capture an image.
EV (Exposure Value)
All the combinations of the camcorder’s shutter speed and lens aperture that result in the
same exposure.
Exposure
The amount of light allowed to reach the camcorder’s sensor. Exposure is controlled by a
combination of the shutter speed, the aperture value, and ISO sensitivity.
Focal length
The distance from the middle of the lens to its focal point (in millimeters). Longer focal
lengths result in narrower angles of view and the subject is magnified. Shorter focal
lengths result in wider angles of view.
Appendixes
Optical zoom
This is a general zoom which can enlarge images with a lens and does not deteriorate
quality of images.
Quality
An expression of the rate of compression used in a digital image. Higher quality images
have a lower rate of compression, which usually results in a larger file size.
Resolution
The number of pixels present in a digital image. High resolution images contain more
pixels and typically show more detail than low resolution images.
Shutter speed
Shutter speed refers to the amount of time it takes to open and close the shutter, and it
is an important factor in the brightness of a photo, as it controls the amount of light which
pass through the aperture before it reaches the image sensor. A fast shutter speed allows
less time to let light in and the photo becomes darker and more easily freezes subjects in
motion.
Tele Macro
This feature allows you to capture close-up images of very small objects. When using the
Tele Macro feature, the camcorder can maintain a sharp focus on small objects at a near
life-size ratio (1:1).
White balance (colour balance)
An adjustment of the intensities of colours (typically the primary colours red, green, and
blue), in an image. The goal of adjusting the white balance, or colour balance, is to
correctly render the colours in an image.
