Use the battery pack when using your camcorder outdoors (p. 11). Open the DC IN jack cover. Quick Start Guide AC power adaptor (supplied)
Battery pack NP-F330 (supplied) NP-F530 NP-F550 NP-F730 NP-F730H/F750 NP-F930 NP-F950 NP-F960 Playing time on LCD screen Playing time with LCD closed 930 1090
Approximate number of minutes when you use a fully charged battery pack The battery life will be shorter if you use your camcorder in a cold environment. What is InfoLITHIUM? The InfoLITHIUM is a lithium ion battery pack which can exchange data such as battery consumption with compatible electronic equipment. This unit is compatible with the InfoLITHIUM battery pack (L series). Your camcorder operates only with the InfoLITHIUM battery. InfoLITHIUM L series battery packs have the mark. InfoLITHIUM is a trademark of Sony Corporation.
Step 1 Preparing the power supply Connecting to a wall outlet
When you use your camcorder for a long time, we recommend that you power it from a wall outlet using the AC power adaptor.
(1) Open the DC IN jack cover, and connect the AC power adaptor to the DC IN jack on your camcorder with the plugs v mark facing up. (2) Connect the power cord to the AC power adaptor. (3) Connect the power cord to a wall outlet.
PRECAUTION The set is not disconnected from the AC power source (wall outlet) as long as it is connected to the wall outlet, even if the set itself has been turned off. Notes The AC power adaptor can supply power even if the battery pack is attached to your camcorder. The DC IN jack has source priority. This means that the battery pack cannot supply any power if the power cord is connected to the DC IN jack, even when the power cord is not plugged into a wall outlet. Place the AC power adaptor near a wall outlet. While using the AC power adaptor, if any trouble occurs with this unit, disconnect the plug from the wall outlet as soon as possible to cut off the power. Using a car battery Use Sony DC Adaptor/Charger (optional).
