About this Handycam Handbook
The example images used in this Handycam Handbook for illustration purposes are captured using a digital still camera, and therefore may appear different from images and screen indicators that actually appear on your camcorder. The HDR-XR200V is used for illustrations in this book, unless otherwise mentioned. In this Handycam Handbook, the internal hard disk of your camcorder and Memory Stick PRO Duo media are called recording media. Memory Stick PRO Duo media and Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo media are both referred to as Memory Stick PRO Duo media in this manual. Design and specifications of your camcorder and accessories are subject to change without notice.

On triangulating errors

About GPS (HDR-XR200V)
The GPS (Global Positioning System) is a system that calculates geographical location from highly accurate US space satellites. This system allows you to pinpoint your exact location on the earth. The GPS satellites are located in 6 orbits, 20,000 km above the earth. The GPS system consists of 24 or more GPS satellites. A GPS receiver receives radio signals from the satellites, and calculates the current location of the receiver based on the orbital information (almanac data) and travel time of the signals, etc.
Determining a location is called triangulating. A GPS receiver can determine the locations latitude and longitude by receiving signals from 3 or more satellites.
As the positions of GPS satellites vary constantly, it may take longer to determine the location or the receiver may not be able to determine the location at all, depending on the location and time you use the camcorder. GPS is a system for determining geographic location by triangulating radio signals from GPS satellites. Avoid using the camcorder in places where radio signals are blocked or reflected, such as a shadowy place surrounded by buildings or trees, etc. Use the camcorder in open sky environments. You may not be able to record location information at locations or in situations where radio signals from the GPS satellites do not reach the camcorder as follows. In tunnels, indoors or under the shade of buildings.
If you move to another location right after setting the GPS switch to ON, it may take a longer time for the camcorder to start trianguating, compared to when you stay in the same place. Error caused by the position of GPS satellites The camcorder automatically triangulates your current location when the camcorder receives radio signals from 3 or more GPS satellites. The triangulating error allowed by the GPS satellites is about 30 m (98 feet). Depending on the environment of the location, the triangulating error can be greater. In this case, your actual location may not match the location on the map based on the GPS information. Meanwhile, the GPS satellites are controlled by the Unites States Department of Defense, and the degree of accuracy may be changed intentionally. Error during the triangulating process The camcorder acquires location information every 10 seconds during triangulating. There is a slight time difference between when the location information is acquired and when the location information is recorded on an image, therefore, the actual recording location may not match exactly the location on the map based on the GPS information.

On Memory Stick PRO Duo media
The maximum memory capacity of Memory Stick PRO Duo media that can be used with your camcorder is 16 GB.
On image data compatibility
Image data files recorded on Memory Stick PRO Duo media by your camcorder conform to the Design rule for Camera File system universal standard established by the JEITA (Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industories Association). On your camcorder, you cannot play back photos recorded on other devices (DCRTRV900 or DSC-D700/D770) that do not conform to the universal standard. (These models are not sold in some regions.) If you cannot use Memory Stick PRO Duo media that have been used with another device, format Memory Stick PRO Duo media with your camcorder (p.71). Note that formatting erases all information on the Memory Stick PRO Duo media. You may not be able to play back images with your camcorder: When playing back image data modified on your computer When playing back image data recorded with other devices
off. If you charge the battery pack outside of this temperature range, you may not be able to charge it efficiently.
To use the battery pack effectively
About the InfoLITHIUM battery pack
Your camcorder operates only with an InfoLITHIUM battery pack (H series). InfoLITHIUM H series battery packs mark. have the
Battery pack performance decreases when the ambient temperature is 10C (50F) or below, and the length of time you can use the battery pack becomes shorter. In that case, do one of the following to use the battery pack for a longer time. Put the battery pack in a pocket to warm it up, and install it on your camcorder right before you start taking shots. Use a large capacity battery pack: NP-FH70/ FH100 (sold separately). Frequent use of the LCD screen or a frequent playback, fast forward or reverse operation wears out the battery pack faster. We recommend using a large capacity battery pack: NP-FH70/FH100 (sold separately). Be sure to close the LCD screen when not recording or playing back on your camcorder. The battery pack is also consumed when your camcorder is in recording standby or playback pause. Have spare battery packs ready for 2 or 3 times the expected recording time, and make trial recordings before making the actual recording. Do not expose the battery pack to water. The battery pack is not water resistant.
