Others About the movie camera When the movie camera is used for a long time, the camera body becomes warm, but this is not a malfunction. Keep the Digital Video Camera as far away as possible from electromagnetic equipment (such as microwave ovens, TVs, video games etc.). If you use the Digital Video Camera on top of or near a TV, the pictures and sound on the Digital Video Camera may be disrupted by electromagnetic wave radiation. Do not use the Digital Video Camera near cell phones because doing so may result in noise adversely affecting the pictures and sound. Recorded data may be damaged, or pictures may be distorted, by strong magnetic fields created by speakers or large motors. Electromagnetic wave radiation generated by microprocessors may adversely affect the Digital Video Camera, disturbing the pictures and sound. If the Digital Video Camera is adversely affected by electromagnetic equipment and stops functioning properly, turn the Digital Video Camera off and remove the battery or disconnect AC adaptor. Then reinsert the battery or reconnect AC adaptor and turn the Digital Video camera on. Do not use the Digital Video Camera near radio transmitters or high-voltage lines. If you record near radio transmitters or high-voltage lines, the recorded pictures and sound may be adversely affected. Do not spray insecticides or volatile chemicals onto the movie camera. If the movie camera is sprayed with such chemicals, the camera body may become deformed and the surface finish may peel off. Do not keep rubber or plastic products in contact with the movie camera for a long time. When you use your movie camera in a sandy or dusty place such as on a beach, do not let sand or fine dust get into the body and terminals of the movie camera. Also, protect the movie camera from getting wet. Sand or dust may damage the movie camera or cassette. (Care should be taken when inserting and removing a cassette.) If sea water splashes onto the movie camera, wet a soft cloth with tap water, wring it well, and use it to wipe the camera body carefully. Then, wipe it again thoroughly with a soft dry cloth. While carrying the movie camera, do not drop or bump it. A strong impact on the movie camera may break its housing, causing it to malfunction. Do not use benzine, paint thinner or alcohol for cleaning the movie camera. Before cleaning, detach the battery or pull out the AC mains lead from the AC mains socket. The camera body may be discoloured and the surface finish may peel off. Wipe the movie camera with a soft dry cloth to remove dust and fingerprints. To remove stubborn stains, wring well a cloth that is soaked in a neutral detergent diluted with water and wipe the movie camera with it. Afterwards, wipe it with a dry cloth. When you use a chemical dust cloth, follow the instructions. Do not use this movie camera for surveillance purposes or other business use. If you use the movie camera for a long time, the internal temperature increases and, consequently, this may cause malfunction. This movie camera is not intended for business use. When you are not going to use the movie camera for an extended time. When storing the unit in a cupboard or a cabinet, it is recommended that you put a desiccant (silica gel) in with it.
Others About the battery The battery used in the movie camera is a rechargeable lithium ion battery. This battery is susceptible to temperature and humidity, and the effect of temperature increases with increasing or decreasing temperature. In the low temperature range, the fully charged indication may not appear, or the low battery indication may appear about 5 minutes after the start of use. At high temperature, moreover, the protection function may work, disabling use of the movie camera. Be sure to detach the battery after use. If the battery is left attached to the movie camera, a minute amount of current is consumed even when the movie camera power is OFF. If the battery is left attached to the movie camera for a long time, over-discharge takes place. The battery may become unusable after it is charged. The battery should be stored in a cool place free from humidity, with as constant temperature as possible. (Recommended temperature: 15 oC to 25 oC, Recommended humidity: 40% to 60%) Extremely high temperatures or low temperatures will shorten the life of the battery. If the battery is kept in a high-temperature, high-humidity, or oily-smoky places, the terminals may rust and cause malfunctions. To store the battery for a long period of time, we recommend you charge it once every year and store it again after you have completely used up the charged capacity. Dust and other matter attached to the battery terminals should be removed. Prepare spare batteries when going out for recording. Prepare batteries appropriate to 3 to 4 times the period during you want to record pictures in. In cold places such as a ski resort, the period during which you can record pictures is shortened. When you travel, do not forget to bring an AC adaptor so that you can recharge the batteries at your destination. If you drop the battery accidentally, check to see if the terminals are deformed. Attaching a deformed battery to the movie camera or the AC adaptor may damage the movie camera or the AC adaptor. Do not throw old battery into fire. Heating a battery or throwing it into a fire may result in an explosion. If the operating time is very short even after the battery has been recharged, the battery has worn out. Please purchase a new battery. About the AC adaptor If the battery is warm, charging requires more time than normal. If the temperature of the battery is extremely high or extremely low, the [CHARGE] lamp may continue flashing, and the battery may not be charged. After the battery temperature has decreased or increased sufficiently, recharging starts automatically. So, wait for a while. If the lamp still continues flashing even after the recharging, the battery or the AC adaptor may be faulty. If so, please contact a dealer. If you use the AC adaptor near a radio, radio reception may be disturbed. Keep the AC adaptor 1 metre or more away from radio. When using the AC adaptor, it may generate whirring sounds. However, this is normal. After use, be sure to pull out the AC mains lead from the AC mains socket. (If they are left connected, a minute amount of current is consumed.) Always keep the electrodes of the AC adaptor and the battery clean.
Others About the cassette Never place the cassette in a high temperature place. The tape may be damaged, producing mosaic-like noise at the time of playback. When storing the cassette after use, be sure to rewind the tape to the beginning and take it out. If the cassette is left for more than 6 months (depending on the storage condition) in the movie camera or stopped midway, the tape may sag and be damaged. Once every 6 months, wind the tape to the end and then rewind it to the beginning. If the cassette is left for 1 year or longer without winding or rewinding, the tape may be deformed by expansion or shrinkage attributable to temperature and humidity. The wound tape may stick to itself. Dust, direct sunlight (ultraviolet rays), and humidity may damage the tape. Such usage may cause damage to the movie camera and the heads. After use, be sure to rewind the tape to the beginning, put the cassette in the case to protect it from dust, and store it upright. Keep the cassette away from strong magnetism. Apparatuses using magnets such as magnetic necklaces and toys have magnetic force that is stronger than expected, and they may erase the contents of a recording or may increase noise. LCD monitor/viewfinder LCD monitor When the LCD monitor gets dirty, wipe it with a dry soft cloth. In a place with drastic temperature changes, condensation may form on the LCD monitor. Wipe it with soft dry cloth. If your movie camera is extremely cold, the LCD monitor is slightly darker than usual immediately after you turn the power on. However, as the internal temperature increases, it goes back to normal brightness. Extremely high precision technology is employed to produce the LCD monitor screen featuring a total of approximately 123,000 pixels. The result is more than 99.99% effective pixels with a mere 0.01% of the pixels inactive or always lit. However, this is not a malfunction and does not affect the recorded picture. Viewfinder Extremely high precision technology is employed to produce the viewfinder screen featuring a total of approximately 113,000 pixels. The result is more than 99.99% effective pixels with a mere 0.01% of the pixels inactive or always lit. However, this is not a malfunction and does not affect the recorded picture. Periodical check-ups To maintain the highest image quality, we recommend replacing worn parts such as heads after approx. 1000 hours of use. (This, however, depends on operating conditions including temperature, humidity and dust.)
PANASONIC NV-GS90 DV CAMCORDER
LED Video Light
When illumination is insufficient, turn on the built-in LED video light to take crisp, colourful movies. The LED (light emitting diode) has low power consumption, long service life, and the safety of a low operating temperature. Crystal Engine and Pure Colour Engine
The Crystal Engine is a special image processing circuit for 3CCD camera systems. It processes the R,G and B signals from the three CCDs individually, so it gives both moving and still pictures exceptional quality. And the Pure Colour Engine converts the CCD output signal from a complementary colour signal into an RGB signal at an early stage and extracts the low-frequency luminance component from the RGB signal. This innovative engine also achieves truly superb colour reproduction for high-zoomed pictures.
Advanced O.I.S. and 42x Optical Zoom
This 42x zoom lens has the power you need to take dramatic closeups or get remarkable shots of even distant subjects. But with long-distance zoom shots, even a tiny bit of hand shake has a huge effect on picture quality. That's where image stabilization comes in. Panasonic's Advanced O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) shifts a corrective lens as you shoot to eliminate the effects of hand shake, so you get clear, sharp, blur-free shots even at high zoom levels. It's an essential feature for getting the most out of this incredible zoom lens.
Panasonic's Advanced O.I.S. is a new image stabilizing function that achieves around eight times higher precision than our previous system. The system uses gyro-sensors to detect handshake, then shifts a lens and adjusts its optical axis to compensate. Advanced O.I.S. enables finer, more effective hand-shake compensation.
One-Touch Navigation With One-Touch Navigation, just press the centre of the joystick to display an operating menu. The operations you use most often are right on the monitor, so it's easy to change settings or operate the camera without looking away from your subject. Soft Skin Detail
When this function detects skin tones, it softens the focus in that area. This has a skin beautifying effect, which makes wrinkles and lines appear less noticeable. When turned on, this function makes blemishes and moles look less conspicuous, while preserving resolution in areas of the picture outside of the skin.
Colour Night View
Leave the light off. Colour Night View gives you images with colour even in dim lighting (1 lux). Light from the LCD is gentle and easy on the eyes, so you can snap shots of sleeping children without waking them up.
