Notes and Safety Instructions
Notes regarding the Rotation of the LCD Screen
Please rotate the LCD Screen carefully as illustrated. Over rotation may cause damage to the inside of the hinge that connects the LCD Screen to the Camcorder. 1. Open the LCD Screen 90 degrees to the Camcorder with your finger. 2. Rotate it to the best angle to record or play. I If you rotate the LCD Screen 180 degrees to the lens side, you can close the LCD Screen with it facing out. I This is convenient during playback operations. [Note] Refer to page 29 to adjust brightness and colour of the LCD Screen.
180 degrees (max.)
LCD Open Knob
90 degrees to the Camcorder 90 degrees (max.)
Notes regarding the LCD Screen, Viewfinder, Lens
1. Direct sunlight can damage the LCD Screen, the inside of the Viewfinder or the Lens. Take pictures of the sun only in low light conditions, such as at dusk. 2. The LCD Screen has been manufactured using high precision technology. However, there may be tiny dots (red, blue or green in colour) that appear on the LCD Screen. These dots are normal and do not affect the recorded picture in any way. 3. Do not pick up the Camcorder by holding the Viewfinder, LCD Screen or Battery Pack. 4. Applying excessive force to the Viewfinder may damage it.
Notes regarding the Video Head Cleaning
To ensure normal recording and a clear picture, clean the video heads regularly. If a square block-shape distorts playback, or only a blue screen is displayed, the video heads may be dirty. If this happens, clean the video heads with a dry type cleaning cassette. Do not use a wet-type cleaning cassette. It may damage the video heads.
Notes regarding Camcorder
Do not leave the Camcorder exposed to high temperatures (above 60 C or 140 F). For example, in a parked car in the sun or exposed to direct sunlight. Do not let the Camcorder get wet. Keep the Camcorder away from rain, sea water, and any other form of moisture. If the Camcorder gets wet, it may get damaged. Sometimes a malfunction due to exposure to liquids cannot be repaired. A sudden rise in atmospheric temperature may cause condensation to form inside the Camcorder. - When you move the Camcorder from a cold location to a warm location (e.g. from outside to inside during the winter.) - When you move the Camcorder from a cool location to a hot location (e.g. from inside to outside during the summer.) If the (DEW) protection feature is activated, leave the Camcorder for at least two hours in a dry, warm room with the cassette compartment opened and the Battery Pack removed.

3D Noise Reduction
The VP-MX25/MX20 transcends the boundaries of convention by introducing 3D noise reduction that dramatically eliminates noise whilst maintaining the original edge and pattern of the image. By analyzing motion between the frames, the frames are split into pattern/edge frames and differential frames and are passed through separate filters which maintain the pattern and edge and remove noise. After filtering, the frames are combined once more to make a cleaner, clearer image.
Longer battery life, extended recording time, and higher quality digital imaging are enabled by the VP-MX25/MX20s Samsung chip. By designing and implementing a powerful single chip control system, power consumption is dramatically reduced, allowing you to capture more memories that can be treasured for the rest of your life.

3D Motion Optimizer Processing creates clearer, cleaner images. Unlike conventional 2D processing, 3D processing compares previous and following frames, divides the current frame into pixel blocks, detects noise occurrence, and eliminates it efficiently without filtering the entire image. Digital Natural Color Processing creates an expanded palette of colors that are closer to those seen in nature. By internally adjusting images beyond RGB into 4 color CMYG spectral color matching, the VPMX25/MX20 is able to accurately recreate colors that are closer to those your eyes see, closer to your memories, and closer to reality.
