Selecting the recording format for movies The camcorder is compatible with the XAVC S format.

What is XAVC S? XAVC S is a recording format that allows high-resolution images, such as 4K, to be highly compressed with MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 and recorded in the MP4 file format. High image quality will be obtained while keeping the data size within a certain level.

Bit-rate indicates the quantity of data recorded in a certain period.

Precautions AC Adaptor Do not short-circuit the battery terminal with any metallic objects. This may cause a malfunction.

Playing back images with other devices You may not be able to play back images that were recorded on your camcorder with other devices normally. Also, you may not be able to play back images recorded on other devices with your camcorder.

Recording and playback Avoid rough handling,

disassembling, modifying, physical shock, or impact such as hammering, dropping or stepping on the product. Be particularly careful with the lens.

To ensure stable operation of the memory card, it is recommended to format the memory card with your camcorder before the first use. Formatting the memory card will erase all the data stored on it and the data will be irrecoverable. Save your important data on your PC, etc.

Confirm the direction of the memory card. If you forcibly insert the memory card in the wrong direction, the memory card, memory card slot, or image data may be damaged.

Before starting to record, test the recording function to make sure the image and sound are recorded without any problems.

eo tapes, and other materials may be copyrighted. Unauthorized recording of such materials may be a violation of the copyright laws.

Compensation for the content of recordings cannot be provided, even if recording or playback is not possible due to a malfunction of the camcorder, recording media, etc.

The camcorder is not dustproofed, dripproofed or waterproofed.

Do not let your camcorder get wet, for example, from rain or sea water. If your camcorder gets wet, it may malfunction. Sometimes this malfunction cannot be repaired.

Do not aim the camcorder at the sun or strong light. Doing so may cause your camcorder to malfunction.

Do not use the camcorder near strong radio waves or radiation. The camcorder may not be able to record or play back images properly.

Do not use the camcorder on a sandy beach or anywhere dusty. Doing so may cause your camcorder to malfunction.

If moisture condensation occurs, stop using the camcorder until moisture evaporates.

Do not subject the camcorder to mechanical shock or vibration. If you do so, the camcorder may operate incorrectly or may not record images. In addition, the recording medium or recorded data may be damaged.

LCD monitor The LCD monitor is manufactured using extremely high-precision technology, so over 99.99% of the pixels are operational for effective use. However, there may be some tiny black points and/or bright points (white, red, blue, or green in color) that appear constantly on the LCD monitor. These points are normal results of the manufacturing process and do not affect the recording in any way.

Camcorder temperature If you use the camcorder continuously for a long time, the camcorder gets very warm. This is not a malfunction.

Overheat protection Depending on the camcorder and battery temperature, you may be unable to record movies or the power may turn off automatically to protect the camcorder. A message will be displayed on the LCD monitor before the power turns off or you can no longer record movies. In this case, leave the power off and wait until the camcorder and battery temperature goes down. If you turn on the power without letting the camcorder and battery cool enough, the power may turn off again or you may be unable to record movies.

Deactivating wireless LAN (Wi-Fi, NFC, etc.) temporarily When you board an airplane, you can deactivate the Wi-Fi function temporarily. Select [Wireless] [ Setting] [Airplane Mode] [On].

Wireless LAN We assume no responsibility whatsoever for any damage caused by unauthorized access to, or unauthorized use of, destinations loaded on the camcorder, resulting from loss or theft.

About the security on using Wireless LAN products Please ensure that you always

use a secured wireless network with your devices to avoid hacking, unapproved third party access and other vulnerabilities.

It is important to set security when using the wireless network function.

Sony makes no guarantees and is not responsible for any damage resulting from having inadequate security or using the wireless network function.

If you run into any problems using your camcorder: Check your camcorder referring

to Help Guide (page 11). Disconnect the power source,

attach the power source again after about 1 minute, and turn the camcorder on.

Initialize your camcorder (page 43). All settings, including the clock setting, are reset.

Contact your Sony dealer or local authorized Sony service facility.
