• Turn off the camcorder before connecting or disconnecting
the compact power adapter. After turning off the camcorder,
important data is updated in the memory. Be sure to wait until
the green POWER/CHG indicator goes out.
• Do not connect to the camcorder’s DC IN terminal or to the
compact power adapter any electrical equipment that is not
expressly recommended for use with this camcorder.
• To prevent equipment breakdowns and excessive heating, do
not connect the supplied compact power adapter to voltage
converters for overseas travels or special power sources such
as those on aircraft and ships, DC-AC inverters, etc.
• We recommend charging the battery pack in temperatures
between 10 °C and 30 °C. If either the ambient temperature
or the battery pack’s temperature is outside the range of
approx. 0 °C to 40 °C, charging will not start.
27
Charging the Battery Pack
• If the ambient temperature or the battery pack’s temperature
is low, charging may take longer than usual.
• The battery pack will be charged only when the camcorder is
off.
• If the power supply was disconnected while charging a battery pack, make sure the POWER/CHG indicator has gone
out before restoring the power supply.
• When the POWER/CHG indicator goes out, the approximate
battery charge shown in 1 > q > [Battery Info] may
not be at 100%. In such case, turn off the camcorder again to
charge further.
• If remaining battery time is an issue, you can power the camcorder using the compact power adapter so the battery pack
will not be consumed.
• Charged battery packs continue to discharge naturally. Therefore, charge them on the day of use, or the day before, to
ensure a full charge.
• Battery packs for this camcorder can display the remaining
battery time. The first time you use a battery pack, fully charge
it and then use the camcorder until the battery pack is completely exhausted. Doing so will ensure that the remaining
recording time will be displayed accurately.
• For details about how to take care of the battery pack, refer to
Battery Pack (A 281). For charging times and approximate
usage times, refer to the Reference Tables (A 297).
28
Charging the Battery Pack
• You can verify the battery charge status of the battery pack
with the 1 > q > [Battery Info] setting.
• We recommend that you prepare battery packs to last 2 to 3
times longer than you think you might need.

Using a Memory Card
Using a Memory Card
Memory Cards Compatible for Use with the
Camcorder
You can use the following types of commercially available Secure Digital
(SD) cards with this camcorder. We recommend using memory cards
rated CLASS 4, 6 or 10*.
As of December 2016, the movie recording function has been tested
using SD/SDHC/SDXC cards made by Panasonic, Toshiba and
SanDisk.
Memory card type:
SD Speed Class**:
. SD card
/ SDHC card
0 SDXC card
* To record movies with a video quality of 50P or 35 Mbps, or to use slow & fast
motion recording, we recommend using memory cards rated CLASS 6 or 10.
** When using an SD memory card without a Speed Class rating or one rated
CLASS 2, you may not be able to record movies.
• After repeatedly recording and deleting scenes (fragmented
memory), it will take longer to write data on the memory card
and recording may stop. Back up your recordings and initialize the memory card using the [Complete Initialization] option
(A 38).
30
Using a Memory Card
• About the Speed Class: Speed Class is a standard that indicates the minimum guaranteed data transfer speed of memory cards. When you buy a new memory card, look for the
Speed Class logo on the package.
■ SDXC Cards
You can use SDXC cards with this camcorder. When using SDXC cards
with other devices, such as digital recorders, computers and card readers, make sure that the external device is compatible with SDXC
cards. For more information on compatibility, contact the computer,
operating system or memory card manufacturer.
• If you use an SDXC card with a computer OS that is not
SDXC-compatible, you may be prompted to format the memory card. In such case, cancel the operation to prevent
data loss.
Inserting and Removing a Memory Card
When you turn on the camcorder for the first time, the first screen of the
basic setup will appear. To use a memory card for recording, turn off the
camcorder and insert the memory card before performing the basic

Slow & Fast Motion Recording
When the movie format is set to MP4, you can use slow motion to capture scenes with a lot of movement so they are played back at half the
normal speed, or fast motion to compress the passage of time into
time-lapse scenes. You can choose between using slow & fast motion
recording for the entire scene or for parts of the scene that you specify.
Depending on which method you use, the available slow & fast motion
rates will differ. Sound is not recorded during slow & fast motion recording.
e You can also convert previously recorded MP4 scenes
into fast motion (time-lapse) scenes (A 147).
■ Using Slow & Fast Motion Recording for an Entire Scene
You can select an available slow/fast motion rate between 1/2x and

You can convert previously recorded scenes to MP4 format, which is
widely used on the Web and on other devices. Depending on the size of
the original scene you may also be able to select a lower video quality to
obtain a smaller file size. This is convenient, for example, when you
want to upload videos to the Web, as smaller video files will upload
more quickly. Additionally, when you convert a scene, you can apply
unique cinema-look filters, background music and decorations to the
converted scene.

connected to the camcorder? (A 25)
Recording
• Did you turn the camcorder on and correctly set it to recording
mode? (A 51, 55) If you want to record on a memory card, is a
compatible card correctly inserted into the camcorder? (A 31)
Playback
• Did you turn the camcorder on and correctly set it to playback
mode? (A 66, 72) If you want to play back recordings from a
memory card, is a compatible card correctly inserted into the
camcorder? (A 31) Does it contain any recordings?
245

278
Do’s and Don’ts
• Save your recordings periodically. Make sure to transfer your
recordings to an external device, such as a computer, digital video
recorder or the optional CS100 Connect Station (A 157), and save
them on a regular basis. This will protect your important recordings in
case of damage and create more free space on the memory. Canon
shall not be liable for any data loss.
• Do not carry the camcorder by the LCD panel. Be careful when closing the LCD panel.
• Handle the touch screen with care. Do not apply excessive force
and do not use ballpoint pens or other hard-tipped tools to operate
the touch screen. This may damage the touch screen’s surface.
• Do not allow contact with metallic objects. If metallic objects come in
contact with the touch screen, this may inadvertently cause incorrect
operation of the camcorder.
• Do not leave the camcorder in places subject to high temperatures,
such as the inside of a car parked under direct sunlight, or high
humidity.
• Do not use the camcorder near strong electromagnetic fields such as
above TVs or near plasma TVs.
• e Do not use the camcorder’s Wi-Fi functions inside hospitals or medical clinics. In addition, do not use them near medical
equipment or sensitive electronic devices as it may affect their performance. In the case of pacemakers, keep the camcorder at least 22
cm away from the device.
Regarding the use of Wi-Fi functions aboard aircraft, be sure to follow
the instructions of the flight crew/cabin attendants.
279
Do’s and Don’ts
• e The camcorder’s Wi-Fi functions may be subject to
interference from devices such as cordless phones and microwave
ovens. Keeping as much distance as possible from these devices or
using the camcorder’s Wi-Fi functions at a different time of day may
reduce such interference.
• Do not point the camcorder toward an intense light source, such as
the sun on a sunny day or an intense artificial light source. Doing so
may damage the image sensor or the camcorder’s internal components. When not using the camcorder, keep the lens cover closed.
• Do not use or store the camcorder in dusty or sandy places. The

5.5 mm
280
Do’s and Don’ts
• When recording movies, try to get a calm, stable picture. Excessive camcorder movement while shooting and extensive use of fast
zooms and panning can result in jittery scenes. In extreme cases, the
playback of such scenes may result in visually induced motion sickness. If you experience such a reaction, stop the playback immediately and take a rest break as necessary.
■ Long-Term Storage
If you do not intend to use the camcorder for a long time, store it in a
place free of dust, in low humidity, and at temperatures not higher than
30 °C.

and the camcorder or battery charger. Wipe the terminals with a soft
cloth.
■ Long-Term Storage
• Store battery packs in a dry place at temperatures no higher than
30 °C.
• To extend the battery life of the battery pack, discharge it completely
before storing it.
• Charge and discharge all your battery packs fully at least once a year.
281
Do’s and Don’ts
■ Remaining battery time
The camcorder uses battery packs that are compatible with Intelligent
System. If the remaining battery time displayed is not correct, charge
the battery pack fully. Still, the correct time may not be displayed after a
large number of repeated uses, if a fully charged battery pack is left
unused, or if a battery pack is used for long periods of time in high temperatures. Use the time shown on the screen as an approximation.
Memory Card
• We recommend backing up the recordings on the memory card onto
your computer. Data may be corrupted or lost due to memory card
defects or exposure to static electricity. Canon shall not be liable for
lost or corrupted data.
• Do not touch or expose the terminals to dust or dirt.
• Do not use memory cards in places subject to strong magnetic fields.
• Do not leave memory cards in places subject to high humidity and
high temperature.
• Do not disassemble, bend, drop, or subject memory cards to shocks
and do not expose them to water.
• Check the direction before inserting the memory card. Forcing a
memory card into the slot if it is not correctly oriented may damage
the memory card or the camcorder.
• Do not attach any labels or stickers on the memory card.
282
Do’s and Don’ts
Built-in Rechargeable Lithium Battery
The camcorder has a built-in rechargeable lithium battery to keep the
date/time and other settings. The built-in lithium battery is recharged
while you use the camcorder; however, it will discharge completely if
you do not use the camcorder for about 3 months.
To recharge the built-in lithium battery: Connect the compact power
adapter to the camcorder and leave it connected with the camcorder
off. The built-in lithium battery will be fully charged after about 24 hours.
Disposal
When you delete movies or initialize the memory, only the file allocation
table is altered and stored data is not physically erased. When you dispose of the camcorder or memory card or give either to another person, initialize the camcorder’s built-in memory (e only) or
memory card using the [Complete Initialization] option (A 38). Fill it up
with unimportant recordings, and then initialize it again using the same
option. This makes recovering the original recordings very difficult.

Cleaning
Camcorder Body
• Use a soft, dry cloth to clean the camcorder body. Never use chemically treated cloths or volatile solvents such as paint thinner.
Lens
• If the lens surface is dirty, autofocus may not work properly.
• Remove any dust or dirt particles using a non-aerosol type blower
brush. Then, use a clean, soft lens-cleaning cloth to gently wipe the
lens. Never use tissue paper.
LCD Touch Screen
• Clean the LCD touch screen using a clean, soft lens-cleaning cloth.
• Condensation may form on the surface of the screen when the temperature changes suddenly. Wipe it with a soft dry cloth.
Condensation
Moving the camcorder rapidly between hot and cold temperatures may
cause condensation (water droplets) to form on its internal surfaces.
Stop using the camcorder if condensation is detected. Continued use
may damage the camcorder.
Condensation may form in the following cases:
• When the camcorder is moved quickly from cold to warm places
• When the camcorder is left in a humid room
284
Maintenance/Others
• When a cold room is heated rapidly
To avoid condensation
• Do not expose the camcorder to sudden or extreme changes in temperature.
• Remove the memory card and battery pack. Then, place the camcorder and battery pack in an airtight plastic bag and let it adjust
gradually to temperature changes before removing it from the bag.
When condensation is detected
The precise time required for water droplets to evaporate will vary
depending on the location and weather conditions. As a general rule,
wait for 2 hours before resuming use of the camcorder.
