• Charging time: Approximate time in minutes required to fully charge a
completely exhausted battery.
• Recording/Playback time: Approximate time available when you have fully
charged the battery.
• Times shown above are measured under Samsung’s test conditions.
Your times may differ, depending on your usage and conditions.
• The recording and playback times will be shorter when you use your
product in low temperatures.
• The charging time will vary depending on the remaining battery level.
• Depending on your PC specifications, the charging time can be
prolonged.
Continuous recording (without zoom)
• Battery properties
A lithium-ion battery is small-sized and has a high capacity. Low
ambient temperature (below 10ºC (50ºF)) may shorten its usage
time and affect its function.
• Be careful not to completely discharge the battery.
- When fully discharged, a battery damages the internal cells. The
battery may be prone to leakage when fully discharged.
- If the battery is not used for a long time, fully charge the battery
and then, using your product, drain the charge completely once
every 3 months to keep the battery functioning properly.
- A battery which is completely discharged may not turn on the
recharging LED during charging. It is designed to protect the
battery. When charge starts but the charge indicator does not
light even within 5 minutes, contact your local Samsung dealer.
• 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.
Contact your local Samsung dealer.
- Each battery’s life is affected by storage, operating, and
environmental conditions.
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, zoom, and playback functions.

Terminals
Micro SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) cards
• A micro SDHC card is a higher version (Ver. 2.00) of the micro SD card and
supports capacities above 4GB.
• Use micro SD cards only with micro SD enabled host devices.
Handling a memory card
• Damaged data may not be recoverable. We recommend you make a backup 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 product may not recognise the modified file.
• The micro memory card does not support any data recovery mode.
Therefore, care should be taken in case the memory card is damaged while
recording.
• We recommend that you power off the product before inserting or removing
the memory card to avoid data loss.
• Make sure to format the memory card on this product. If the memory card
had been formatted by a PC or other device, using it on this product without
reformatting may cause recording and/or playback failure. Samsung is
not responsible for damage to recorded contents caused by incompatible
formatting.
• You have to format newly-purchased memory cards, memory cards with
data that your product 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 ready to start recording
This product supports micro SD and micro SDHC memory
cards, giving you a wider choice of cards!
The data storage speed 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, the
product 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 of the recording may be lower than the set value.
¬page 47
The higher the resolution and quality, the more memory the
product uses.
Using the memory card adaptor
This product uses micro SD/micro SDHC memory
cards.
To use a micro SD/micro SDHC directly with a
computer or a card reader you must attach it to or
insert it into an adaptor.
• 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.

Additional information
When there is dew condensation, put the product aside for
a while before using
• What is dew condensation?
Dew condensation happens when a product 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 product, and on the reflection lens. If
there is dew on or in your product, it may cause the product to
malfunction or damage the product when you turn the power on.
• Exactly when does dew condensation occur?
When you move the camera 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 camera 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, and leave the product in a dry area for 1~2
hours before using it.
Use the product only after dew condensation has completely
disappeared.

GLOSSARY
AF (Auto Focus)
F. No (F-Number)
A system that automatically focuses the product lens on the subject. Your product
uses the contrast to focus automatically.
Aperture
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.
Ú F.No=focal length/diameter of lens aperture
The aperture controls the amount of light that reaches the product’s sensor.
MPEG-4 AVC/H.264
Composition
Composition in photography means arranging objects in a photo. Usually, abiding by
the rule of thirds leads to a good composition.
MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 defines the latest video coding format standardized by the ISOIEC 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 product employs MPEG-4
AVC/H.264 to encode high definition videos.
Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor (CMOS)
Product shake (Blur)
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
product.
If the product is moved while the shutter is open, the entire image may appear blurred.
This occurs more often when the shutter speed is slow. Prevent product shake by
raising the sensitivity, using a faster shutter speed. Alternately, use a tripod, the DIS or
OIS function to stabilise the product.
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.
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.
Effective Pixel Count
Resolution
Unlike the total pixel count, this is the actual number of pixels used to capture an
image.
The number of pixels present in a digital image. High resolution images contain more
pixels and typically show more detail than low resolution images.
Exposure
Shutter speed
The amount of light allowed to reach the product’s sensor. Exposure is controlled by a
combination of the shutter speed, the aperture value, and ISO sensitivity.
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.
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.
