LCD Panel
The liquid crystal panel of the monitor screen uses high-precision technology that
provides a pixel yield in excess of 99.99%. This means that some very small number
of pixels may not light or may remain lit at all times. This is due to the characteristics
of the liquid crystal panel, and does not indicate malfunction.
Read this first!
Charge batteries before use.
The camera and the controller each have a built-in rechargeable lithium ion
battery. The batteries are not charged when you purchase the camera, so you will
need to charge both the camera and controller before using them.
Take test shots
Before shooting your final image, shoot a test shot to ensure that the camera is
recording correctly.4

. Camera-Controller Wireless Connection
The camera and controller communicate over a
Bluetooth wireless technology connection. Once
you perform the “pairing” operation required for
Bluetooth wireless technology connection, the
camera and controller will automatically connect to each other whenever you turn
them on. Note that the connection will be lost when the distance between the camera
and controller becomes too great. The controller will turn off after a preset amount of
time after the Bluetooth wireless technology connection is lost. The camera will
remain on, so you can shoot images by pressing its shutter button.
IMPORTANT!
• Your camera has Bluetooth wireless technology communication functionality built
in. Avoid operating the camera (including camera standalone operations) inside of
aircraft or anywhere else where wireless data communication is restricted.

Though the camera has built-in memory that can be used to store images and
movies, you probably will want to purchase a commercially available memory card for
greater capacity. The camera does not come with a memory card. Images recorded
while a memory card is loaded are saved to the memory card. When no memory card
is loaded, images are saved to built-in memory.
• Snapshots and movies stored in built-in memory cannot be copied to a memory
card.
• For information about memory capacities, see page 143.
– microSD Memory Card
– microSDHC Memory Card
– microSDXC Memory Card
• The above are supported memory card types as of May 2016.
• This camera supports use of microSD memory cards of the
following types and capacities: microSD memory cards up to 2GB; microSDHC
memory cards greater than 2GB, up to 32GB; microSDXC memory cards greater
than 32GB, up to 2TB. Note that the ability to use any particular card with this
camera, even if it satisfies the above capacity and type requirements, is not
guaranteed.
. Memory Card Handling Precautions
Certain types of memory cards can slow down processing speeds. In particular, high-
quality movies may not be able to be stored correctly. A slow memory card can take
too much time to record data and result in breaks in the image and/or audio during
playback.

the camera’s operation lamp flashing green. Note that the camera will not enter
the sleep state if “5 sec” is selected for the “Interval” setting.
• To recover from the sleep state, press any
controller button. Next, touching “ ” on the
monitor screen will display the number of recorded
images. The maximum number of shots is 9,999.

NOTE
• Anti-shake is applied in accordance with the current camera settings. However,
image anti-shake is not applied.
• If the camera battery goes dead during an Interval Shooting operation, the
operation will terminate. The controller battery going dead does not affect an
ongoing operation. To stop the Interval Shooting operation in this case, hold down
[p] (Power) on the camera for about two seconds.
• If you are performing manual camera operations or if the camera is out of the sleep
state when the Interval Shooting operation reaches a shooting interval, Interval
Shooting recording for that interval will be skipped.
• Pressing the controller’s [p] (Power) button while the camera is out of the sleep
state will return to the sleep state and restart the Interval Snapshot operation.
• Initial default settings depend on the selected scene.

restore initial default settings, perform a reset operation (page 110) to reset the
camera.
• Certain environments may cause the shooting interval to be longer than normal.47

The following procedure explains how to record a movie.
• You can change the movie quality setting when shooting with the Super Wide
Angle recording mode. See page 51 for details.
1. Press [0] (Movie).
This will start recording.
• Stereo audio is also recorded when something
other than “HS120” or “HS240” is selected for the
movie quality setting.
• Nothing is shown on the monitor screen during
movie recording while the movie quality setting is
“4K” or “FHD(60p)”.
• In the Panorama recording mode, the controller
displays a Dome View image during movie
recording, not a Panorama image.
2. Press [0] (Movie) to stop recording.
• Each movie can be up to 29 minutes or 4 GB long. Movie recording also will
stop automatically if memory becomes full before you stop movie recording.
Minimizing the Effects of Camera Movement during Movie Recording
While the image quality setting is “FHD(60p)”, “FHD(30p)” or “STD”, you can reduce
blur due to camera movement during movie recording by selecting the “Standard” or
“Strong” setting for “Movie Anti Shake” (page 52). Note, however, that image
stabilization does not prevent image blur due to subject movement during movie
recording. Also, image stabilization results in a narrower angle of view during movie
recording. Though selecting “Strong” for the Movie Anti Shake setting will increase
the anti shake effect, it can also increase the chance horizontal banding in the image
due to light source flicker (caused by fluorescent lighting).
High Speed Movie Recording Precautions
• When shooting a high speed movie, shoot in a well-lit environment.
• When recording a high speed movie, light source flicker can cause horizontal
bands to appear in the image. This does not indicate malfunction of the camera.

IMPORTANT!
• Spending a long time using movie recording will cause the camera to become
slightly warm to the touch. This is normal and does not indicate malfunction.
• When the movie quality setting is something other than
“HS120” or “HS240”, audio will be recorded along with the
movie image. Note the following points when shooting a
movie.
– Take care that the microphones are not blocked by your
fingers, etc.
– Good audio recording results are not possible when the
camera is too far away from what you are trying to
record.
• Shooting movies for long periods in areas where temperature is relatively high can
cause digital noise (dots of light) to appear in the movie image. A rise in the
camera’s internal temperature also may force movie recording to stop
automatically. If this happens, stop recording and allow the camera to cool down,
which should cause normal operation to resume.
• Use of the camera’s built-in memory or certain types of memory cards can slow
down processing speeds. In particular, high-quality movies may not be able to be
stored correctly. A slow memory card can take too much time to record data and
result in breaks in the image and/or audio during playback.
