Do not point the lens or the viewfinder directly into the sun. This can cause eye injuries, as well as lead to the malfunctioning of internal circuitry. There is also a risk of fire or electric shock. CAUTION! The following notes concern possible physical damage to the camcorder and to the user. When carrying, be sure to always securely attach and use the provided strap. Carrying or holding the camcorder by the viewfinder and/or the LCD monitor can result in dropping the unit, or in a malfunction. Take care not to get your finger caught in the cassette holder cover. Do not let children operate the camcorder, as they are particularly susceptible to this type of injury. Do not use a tripod on unsteady or unlevel surfaces. It could tip over, causing serious damage to the camcorder. CAUTION! Connecting cables (Audio/Video, S-Video, etc.) to the camcorder and leaving it on top of the TV is not recommended, as tripping on the cables will cause the camcorder to fall, resulting in damage. Attach only the optional JVC VL-V3U Video Light, VL-F3U Flash, MZ-V3U Stereo Zoom Microphone or MZ-V5U Stereo Microphone to the camcorders Info-Shoe.

NOTES: When choosing a scene, set Edit-In and Edit-Out points so that there is a relatively large difference between them. If the search time for an in-point exceeds 5 minutes, the recording decks Record-Standby mode will be cancelled and editing will not take place. If there are blank portions before or after the EditIn and Edit-Out points, a blue screen may be included in the edited version. Since time codes register time only as accurately as seconds, the time code total time may not match the total program time exactly. Turning off the camcorders power erases all registered Edit-In and Edit-Out points. For GR-DV900 owners: If you select Sepia or Monotone mode from Program AE with special effects, you cannot use the Dissolve or Black & White Fader. In this case the Dissolve or Black & White indicator begins blinking. Once the next Edit-In point is registered, the effect is turned off.
