8 GB x Notes on using the camera

Internal memory and “Memory

Stick Duo” media back up

Do not turn off the camera, remove the battery pack, or remove the “Memory Stick Duo” media while the access lamp is lit. Otherwise, the internal memory data or “Memory Stick

Duo” media may be damaged. Be sure to make a backup copy to protect your data.

On management files

When you insert a “Memory Stick Duo” media without a management file into the camera and turn on the power, part of the “Memory Stick

Duo” media capacity is used to automatically create a management file. It may take some time until you can perform the next operation.

Notes on recording/playback

• Before you start recording, make a trial recording to make sure that the camera is working correctly.

• The camera is neither dust-proof, nor splash-

proof, nor water-proof. Read “Precautions”

(page 72) before operating the camera.

• Avoid exposing the camera to water. If water enters inside the camera, a malfunction may occur. In some cases, the camera cannot be repaired.

• Do not aim the camera at the sun or other bright light. It may cause the malfunction of the camera.

• Do not use the camera near a location that generates strong radio waves or emits radiation. Otherwise, the camera may not properly record or play back images.

• Using the camera in sandy or dusty locations may cause malfunctions.

• If moisture condensation occurs, remove it

before using the camera (page 72).

• 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.

• Clean the flash surface before use. The heat of flash emission may cause dirt on the flash surface to become discolored or to stick to the flash surface, resulting in insufficient light emission.

Notes on the LCD screen, the LCD finder and lens

• The LCD screen is manufactured using extremely high-precision technology so over

99.99% of the pixels are operational for effective use. However, some tiny black and/ or bright dots (white, red, blue or green) may appear on the LCD screen. These dots are a normal result of the manufacturing process, and do not affect the recording.

• When the battery level becomes low, the lens might stop moving. Insert a charged battery pack and turn on the camera again.

• Do not hold the camera by taking hold of the

LCD screen.

On camera’s temperature

Your camera and battery may get warm due to continuous use, but it is not a malfunction.

On the overheat protection

Depending on the camera and battery temperature, you may be unable to record movies or the power may turn off automatically to protect the camera.

A message will be displayed on the LCD screen before the power turns off or you can no longer record movies.

On image data compatibility

• The camera conforms with DCF (Design rule for Camera File system) universal standard established by JEITA (Japan Electronics and

Information Technology Industries

Association).

• Sony does not guarantee that the camera will play back images recorded or edited with other equipment, or that other equipment will play back images recorded with the camera.

If you cannot record/play back images, perform [Initialize]

If you repeat recording/deleting images for a long time, fragmentation of data occurs on the media. Images cannot be saved or recorded. In such a case, save your images on some type of external media first, and then perform

[Initialize] in

(Main Settings) (page 63).

Note when playing movies on other devices

This camera utilizes MPEG-4 AVC/H.264

Main Profile to record movies. Therefore, movies recorded using this camera cannot be played on devices that do not support MPEG-4

AVC/H.264.

Precautions

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.

• Under direct sunlight or near a heater

The camera body may become discolored or deformed, and this may cause a malfunction.

In a location subject to rocking vibration

Near strong magnetic place

In sandy or dusty places

Be careful not to let sand or dust get into the camera. This may cause the camera to malfunction, and in some cases this malfunction cannot be repaired.

On cleaning

Cleaning the LCD screen

Wipe the screen surface with an LCD cleaning kit (sold separately) to remove fingerprints, dust, etc.

Cleaning the lens

Wipe the lens with a soft cloth to remove fingerprints, dust, etc.

Cleaning the camera surface

Clean the camera surface with a soft cloth slightly moistened with water, then wipe the surface with a dry cloth. To prevent damage to the finish or casing:

– Do not expose the camera to chemical products such as thinner, benzine, alcohol, disposable cloths, insect repellent, sunscreen or insecticide.

– Do not touch the camera with any of the above on your hand.

– Do not leave the camera in contact with rubber or vinyl for a long time.

On operating temperatures

Your camera is designed for use under the temperatures between 0 °C and 40 °C (32 °F and 104 °F). Shooting in extremely cold or hot places that exceed this range is not recommended.

On moisture condensation

If the camera is brought directly from a cold to a warm location, moisture may condense inside or outside the camera. This moisture condensation may cause a malfunction of the camera.

If moisture condensation occurs

Turn off the camera and wait about an hour for the moisture to evaporate. Note that if you attempt to shoot with moisture remaining inside the lens, you will be unable to record clear images.

On the internal rechargeable backup battery
