7 Frequently asked questions

(FAQ)

Why is there no response when I use the camcorder?

• The camcorder is in power-off mode.

Turn on the camcorder (see ‘Get started’

> ‘Turn on’).

The built-in battery may be drained.

Charge the battery (see ‘Get started’ >

‘Charge the built-in battery’).

Why is [Memory full!] displayed when I try to record?

• Ensure that the Micro SD card has been inserted correctly (see ‘Get started’ >

‘Load the Micro SD card’).

The memory is used up. Save your video/pictures to a computer (see ‘Use more of your camcorder’ > ‘Transfer video/pictures to a PC/Mac’). Then delete files from your camcorder or clear the memory.

Why do I have no access to folders on the camcorder from my computer?

• Ensure that the USB connection is correct.

The camcorder turns off automatically

15 minutes after it is connected to a computer. You can press to turn it on again.

Why do my video/pictures look blurry?

• Hold the camcorder steady in your hands

• during shooting.

During video capture, do not move the camcorder too fast.

Use a tripod (not supplied) if necessary.

Why do my video/pictures look distorted on a TV screen?

• Select the correct TV system.

14 EN

How do I charge the camcorder?

• You can charge the camcorder via the

USB pop-out connector. When you connect it to your PC/laptop it will automatically charge. You can also plug the camcorder via the pop-out USB into a USB charger.

How long do I have to charge the camcorder?

• The camcorder is fully charged for first usage. The camcorder charge time when connected to your PC/laptop is 3 hours.

When you charge it via USB adaptor, the charge time is 2 hours.

How do I fast-forward or rewind on the camcorder?

• You can fast-forward during play of a movie by pressing the right-button for 2 seconds. You can rewind during play of a movie by pressing the left-button for 2 seconds.

Camcorder stopped responding?

• In the unlikely event that your camcorder stops responding, you can manually reset it. The reset button is located under the HDMI cover. There you see a small opening above the HDMI connection.

Please use a small prying object (like a pen) to insert and press gently for resetting. After you have reset the camcorder, please turn on the camcorder again, and set-up will start again.

Why does the camcorder sometimes not record the right color?

• To record both indoors and outdoors, and not having to change any settings, the camcorder has an automatic whitebalance correction. This enables you to record both indoors and outdoors where the amount of light in the environment changes. If you move fast from outdoors to indoors, the camcorder might need some time to correct that, and in extreme cases the colors might seem a bit unnatural. However, after a few seconds this will be corrected automatically by the camcorder.

Can I connect the camcorder directly to TV,

DVD/Blu-ray player or Home Cinema set via their USB-port?

• The USB plug is designed to share your videos/pictures to your PC or Laptop.

You can plug the CAM110 directly into your TV, DVD/Blu-ray player or Home cinema set (called the host from this point on), and it will play the pictures that are stored on the CAM110. To play the videos from the CAM110, it depends if your host supports the file format H.264 of the CAM110. Most Blu-ray enabled players are able to play this format.

How do I connect it to a Windows PC/ laptop?

• Connect the camcorder to your PC/ laptop via USB. The USB pop-out connector is strong enough to support the camcorder when it is plugged into the PC’s USB port. For easy sharing and editing, install the software program

(Media Impression HD) that comes with the camcorder.

How do I connect it to a Mac?

• The camcorder works with the Mac via

USB. The USB pop-out connector is strong enough to support the camcorder when it is plugged into the USB port.

The camcorder works great with the iMovie software, which is part of the iLife package that comes with your Mac.

To transfer videos using iMovie, simply connect the camcorder to your Mac via

USB, launch iMovie and start importing by clicking the camcorder icon. Select

‘Use original quality’ to ensure the best quality, and to maintain file sizes at an optimum.

What is HD?

• HD stands for High Definition. The camcorder captures videos in high definition (720p), which is also the

EN 15

resolution that HD TV programs are broadcast in. “720” refers to the display resolution, in terms of the number of horizontal lines onscreen. “p” stands for progressive scan, or the sequential appearance of the lines in each frame. HD

720p gives video quality that is superior to that found in typical mobile phones and digital cameras.

How do I play my videos on TV?

• To play back on TV, please use an HDMI connector (mini HDMI to standard

HDMI) if your TV accepts HDMI input, or use the video-out cable provided.

Why is there no lens cover?

• The camcorder comes without a lens cover, keeping it simple to use and fuss-free. It is made of robust material that doesn’t scratch under normal usage. A travel pouch and a lens cloth are provided, allowing you to keep the camcorder clean.

What format does the camcorder record in?

• The camcorder uses the same video format as Blu-ray players and discs –

H.264. This highly sophisticated format delivers superb HD picture quality.

What does pre-record mean that is in the setting?

• The pre-record button is designed to let you never miss a moment. When you enable the pre-record function, the camcorder will record video 3 seconds before you have pressed the record button. So when you play-back the recorded film, you will automatically see the first 3 seconds before you have pressed the record button. This can be useful when filming unexpected moments. The pre-record function will not drain battery life, it will operate as normal.

Some video files cannot be edited. Why is that?

• Video files recorded with dual recording cannot be edited. To edit video files on the camcorder, set [Dual recording] to

[Off] before you record video (see ‘Use your camcorder’ > ‘Adjust settings’).

Tips on video making

• You can easily look back on fun moments and relive them with the camcorder. To enjoy these memories to the fullest, here are some simple video tips:

• When capturing videos, hold your

• camcorder steady in your hand

Don’t move too fast when panning

(i.e. moving the camera horizontally) as it will be hard to follow what is

• captured when you review the video

Try shooting from different angles

– for example, from the side, from the front, or even from below. You can easily join the different video segments together with the PC software included
