Installing Photo Application
Before you connect the camcorder to the computer with the USB cable for the
first time, you must install Photo Application.
Your digital video camcorder is equipped with the standard Picture Transfer
Protocol (PTP). This protocol enables you to download still images by simply
connecting the camcorder to a computer with the USB cable (using software
such as iPhoto or Image Capture preinstalled on Mac OS X).
However, note that there are several limitations to downloading still images
with this method.
 It may take a few minutes, after connecting the camcorder, until you can
download still images.
 Still images protected on the camcorder may lose this setting once they are
downloaded to the computer.
 When downloading the still images by Image Capture that comes with Mac
OS, the Exif version may change to 2.1 and image information may be
modified. Either install ImageBrowser to download the still images or use the
following procedure.
1) Connect the camcorder to the computer, and start Image Capture.
2) Click [Options].
3) Remove the checkmark from [Embed Colorsync profile] in the
[Download Options] tab and click [OK].

Do not connect two or more camcorders to the same computer via the USB
interface. The connections may not operate correctly.
Never allow the computer to go into standby (sleep) mode while a

You may not be able to download images with ImageBrowser or OS
standard software (depending on the computer you are using and the
installed OS) if the built-in memory or the memory card contains more than
approximately 1000 images. In such case, copy the images in the built-in
memory to a memory card and then use a card reader/writer to download the
images to the computer.
If the built-in memory or the memory card contains a large number of
images, the correct connection to the computer may not be possible. The
maximum number of images depends on the camcorder used, so please
refer to the relevant chapter in your camcorder’s Instruction Manual.
In such case, copy the images from the built-in memory to a memory card
and then use a card reader/writer to transfer the images to the computer.
Observe the following precautions when the camcorder’s access indicator is
flashing. Failure to do so may cause data to become corrupted.
- Do not remove the memory card or detach the USB cable.
- Do not turn off the camcorder or the computer.
- Do not switch between the shooting and playback modes.
The still images you recorded and/or downloaded to the hard disk are
important original data files. Create a copy of the file first before working on it
