2 EN READ THIS FIRST !

Before recording important video, be sure to make a trial recording. Play back your trial recording to make sure the video and audio have been recorded properly. We recommend cleaning your video heads before use. If you havent used your camcorder for a while, the heads may be dirty. We recommend periodically cleaning the video heads with a cleaning cassette (optional). Be sure to store your cassette tapes and camcorder in the proper environment. Video heads can become dirty more easily if your cassette tapes and camcorder are stored in a dusty area. Cassette tapes should be removed from the camcorder and stored in cassette cases. Store the camcorder in a bag or other container. Use SP (Standard) mode for important video recordings. LP (Long Play) mode lets you record 50% more video than SP (Standard) mode, but you may experience mosaic-like noise during playback depending on the tape characteristics and the usage environment. So, for important recordings, we recommend using SP mode. For safety and reliability. It is recommended only genuine JVC batteries and accessories are used in this camcorder. This product includes patented and other proprietary technology and will operate only with JVC Data Battery. Use the JVC BNVF707U/VF714U/VF733U battery packs. Using generic non-JVC batteries can cause damage to the internal charging circuitry. Make sure you only use cassettes with the Mini DV mark. Remember that this camcorder is intended for private consumer use only. Any commercial use without proper permission is prohibited. (Even if you record an event such as a show, performance or exhibition for personal enjoyment, it is strongly recommended that you obtain permission beforehand). DO NOT leave the unit - in place of over 50C (122F) - in place where humidity is extremely low (below 35%) or extremely high (80%). - in direct sunlight. - in a closed car in summer. - near a heater. The LCD monitor is made with high-precision technology. However, black spots or bright spots of light (red, green or blue) may appear constantly on the LCD monitor. These spots are not recorded on the tape. This is not due to any defect of the unit. (Effective dots: more than 99.99%) Do not leave the battery pack attached when the camcorder is not in use and check the unit regularly whether it is working or not.

Loading/Unloading A Cassette
The camcorder needs to be powered up to load or eject a cassette.
PUSH OPEN/EJECT Cassette holder cover
Once the cassette holder is closed, it recedes automatically. Wait until it recedes completely before closing the cassette holder cover. When the battery packs charge is low, you may not be able to close the cassette holder cover. Do not apply force. Replace the battery pack with a fully charged one or use AC power before continuing.
3 Close the cassette holder cover firmly until it
locks into place. To protect valuable recordings Slide the erase protection tab on the back of the tape in the direction of SAVE. This prevents the tape from being recorded over. To record on this tape, slide the tab back to REC before loading it.
If you wait a few seconds and the cassette holder does not open, close the cassette holder cover and try again. If the cassette holder still does not open, turn the camcorder off then on again. If the tape does not load properly, open the cassette holder cover fully and remove the cassette. A few minutes later, insert it again. When the camcorder is suddenly moved from a cold place to a warm environment, wait a short time before opening the cassette holder cover.

Zooming

Produces the zoom in/out effect, or an instantaneous change in image magnification. Zoom In Slide the Power Zoom Lever towards T. Zoom Out Slide the Power Zoom Lever towards W.

Journalistic Shooting

In some situations, different shooting angles may provide more dramatic results. Hold the camcorder in the desired position and tilt the LCD monitor in the most convenient direction. It can rotate 270 (90 downward, 180 upward).
The further you slide the Power Zoom Lever, the quicker the zoom action. Zoom in (T: Telephoto)

1x 10x 20x 40x

Time Code
During recording, a time code is recorded on the tape. This code is to confirm the location of the recorded scene on the tape during playback.

Zoom out (W: Wide angle)

Display Minutes Seconds Frames* (25 frames = 1 second)

Digital zoom zone 32X (optical) zoom zone Approximate zoom ratio
Focusing may become unstable during zooming. In this case, set the zoom while in RecordStandby, lock the focus by using the manual focus ( pg. 28), then zoom in or out in Record mode. Zooming is possible to a maximum of 800X, or it can be switched to 32X magnification using the optical zoom. ( pg. 24) Zoom magnification of over 32X is done through digital image processing, and is therefore called Digital Zoom. During Digital Zoom, the quality of image may suffer. Macro shooting (as close as approx. 5 cm to the subject) is possible when the Power Zoom Lever is set all the way to W. Also see TELE MACRO in FUNCTION Menu on page 24. When shooting a subject close to the lens, zoom out first. If zoomed-in in the auto focus mode, the camcorder may automatically zoom out depending on the distance between the camcorder and the subject. This will not occur when TELE MACRO is set to ON. ( pg. 24)
* Frames are not displayed during recording.
If recording starts from a blank portion, the time code begins counting from 00:00:00 (minute:second:frame). If recording starts from the end of a previously recorded scene, the time code continues from the last time code number. If during recording a blank portion is left partway through the tape, the time code is interrupted. When recording is resumed, the time code starts counting up again from 00:00:00. This means the camcorder may record the same time codes as those existing in a previously recorded scene. To prevent this, perform Recording From The Middle Of A Tape ( pg. 20) in the following cases;

[AUTO]: White balance is adjusted automatically. MWB: Adjust the white balance manually when shooting under various types of lighting. ( Manual White Balance Adjustment) FINE: Outdoors on a sunny day. CLOUD: Outdoors on a cloudy day. [ ] = Factory-preset To return to automatic white balance Set W.BALANCE to AUTO. ( pg. 24)

( pg. 24), then press and hold SET or until begins blinking. When the setting is completed, stops blinking.
6 Press SET or to engage the setting. 7 Press MENU. The Menu Screen closes and

In step 3, it may be difficult to focus on the white paper. In such a case, adjust focus manually. ( pg. 28) A subject can be shot under various types of lighting conditions indoors (natural, fluorescent, candlelight, etc.). Because the colour temperature is different depending on the light source, the subject tint will differ depending on the white balance settings. Use this function for a more natural result. Once you adjust white balance manually, the setting is retained even if the power is turned off or the battery removed.

About moisture condensation

You have observed that pouring a cold liquid into a glass will cause drops of water to form on the glass outer surface. This same phenomenon occurs on the head drum of a camcorder when it is moved from a cool place to a warm place, after heating a cold room, under extremely humid conditions or in a place directly subjected to the cool air from an air conditioner. Moisture on the head drum can cause severe damage to the video tape, and can lead to internal damage to the camcorder itself.
