• If the power/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 in an ambient temperature of between 10°C to 30°C
(50ºF to 86ºF).
• The battery pack may not be effectively charged if the terminal section of the

(supplied). The power/charge lamp lights up and then turns off immediately
when the battery pack is fully charged.
• 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

• The above estimates for battery life and number of recordable images apply when
the battery pack has been fully charged. The battery life and number of images
may decrease depending on the conditions of use.
• The battery life and number of recordable images are estimates based on shooting
with the default settings under the following conditions:
– Using the battery pack at an ambient temperature of 25°C (77°F).
– Using Sony Memory Stick PRO Duo (Mark2) media (sold separately)
• The numbers for “Shooting (still images)” are based on the CIPA standard and
shooting under the following conditions:
(CIPA: Camera & Imaging Products Association)
– One picture is taken every 30 seconds.
– The power is turned on and off once every ten times.
– The flash strobes once every two times.
– The zoom is switched alternately between the W and T ends.
• The number of minutes for movie shooting is based on the shooting under the
following conditions:
– The image quality is set to AVCHD 60i 17M(FH)/50i 17M(FH)
– Battery life based on non-stop shooting until the limit (29 minutes) has been
reached, and then continued by pressing the MOVIE (Movie) button again.
Other functions, such as zooming, are not operated.
x Supplying power
The camera can be supplied with power from the wall outlet (wall socket) by
connecting to the AC Adaptor (supplied), using the micro USB cable
(supplied). This way, you do not need to worry about draining the battery
when shooting or playing back for extended periods of time.
Shooting and playback are possible without a battery pack in the camera.

• Continuous movie shooting is possible for a maximum of approximately
29 minutes at one time with the camera’s default settings and when the ambient
temperature is approximately 25°C (77°F).
• The recordable time of movies varies because the camera 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.
Notes on using the camera
Functions built into this camera
• This manual describes 1080 60i-compatible devices and 1080 50i-compatible
To check whether your camera is a 1080 60i-compatible device or 1080 50icompatible device, check for the following marks on the bottom of the camera.
1080 60i-compatible device: 60i
1080 50i-compatible device: 50i
• This camera is compatible with 1080 60p or 50p-format movies. Unlike standard
recording modes up to now, which record in an interlacing method, this camera
records using a progressive method. This increases the resolution, and provides a
smoother, more realistic image. Movies recorded in 1080 60p/1080 50p format
can be played back only on 1080 60p/1080 50p-supported devices.
On use and care
Avoid rough handling, disassembling, modifying, physical shock, or impact such as
hammering, dropping, or stepping on the product. Be particularly careful of the lens.

working correctly.
• The camera is neither dust-proof, nor splash-proof, nor water-proof.
• Do not directly expose the lens to beams such as laser beams. That may damage
the image sensor and cause the camera to malfunction.
• Do not expose the camera to sunlight or shoot sunward for a long time. The
internal mechanism may be damaged.
• Do not aim the camera at the sun or other bright light. It may cause the
malfunction of the camera.
• If moisture condensation occurs, remove it before using the camera.
• Do not shake or strike the camera. It may cause a malfunction and you may not be
able to record images. Furthermore, the recording media may become unusable or
image data may be damaged.
Do not use/store the camera in the following places
• In an extremely hot, cold or humid place
In places such as in a car parked in the sun, the camera body may become
deformed and this may cause a malfunction.
• Storing under direct sunlight or near a heater
The camera body may become discolored or deformed, and this may cause a
• In a location subject to rocking vibration
• Near a location that generates strong radio waves, emits radiation or is strongly
magnetic place. Otherwise, the camera may not properly record or play back
• In sandy or dusty places
