Using the camcorder
The camcorder is not dustproofed, dripproofed or waterproofed. See Precautions (p. 32). Do not do any of the following when the (Movie)/ (Still) mode lamps or the ACCESS lamps (p. 13, 17) are lit or flashing. Otherwise, the media may be damaged, recorded images may be lost or other malfunctions could occur. Eject the Memory Stick PRO Duo Remove the battery pack or AC Adaptor from the camcorder Apply mechanical shock or vibration to the camcorder When connecting your camcorder to another device with communication cables, be sure to insert the connector plug in the correct way. Pushing the plug forcibly into the terminal will damage the terminal and may result in a malfunction of your camcorder.

Perchlorate Material - special handling may apply, See www.dtsc.ca.gov/hazardouswaste/perchlorate Perchlorate Material: Lithium battery contains perchlorate.
Connect cables to the connectors of the Handycam Station when using your camcorder attached to the Handycam Station. Do not connect the cables to both the Handycam Station and your camcorder. Do not apply shock or vibration to your camcorder. The internal hard disk of the camcorder may not be recognized or recording/ playback may not be possible. Do not use your camcorder in very loud areas. The hard disk of your camcorder may not be recognized, or recording may not be possible. To protect the internal hard disk from shock by dropping, the camcorder has drop sensor function*. When a drop occurs, or under a nongravity condition, the block noise made when this function is activated by the camcorder may also be recorded. If the drop sensor catches a drop repeatedly, recording/playback may be stopped. When the temperature of the camcorder becomes extremely high or extremely low, you may not be able to record or play back on the camcorder, due to the protection features of the camcorder being activated in such situations. In this case, a message appears on the LCD screen or in the viewfinder (p. 30). Do not turn on the camcorder in a low-pressure area, where the altitude is more than 3,000 meters (9,800 feet). Doing so may damage the hard disk drive of your camcorder. If you repeat recording/deleting images for a long time, fragmentation of data occurs on the media. Images cannot be saved or recorded. In such a case, save your images on some type of external media first, and then perform [MEDIA FORMAT]*. Fasten the grip belt and hold your camcorder correctly while recording.
