using this unit.
*1 It is compatible with the AVCHD
Progressive (1080/60p).
AVCHD:
It is suitable for viewing on a high-definition TV
or for saving to disc
*2
.
*2 The following methods are available for
saving an image recorded in 1080/60p:
j Copy the image to a disc using the
HD Writer LE 3.0.
j Copy the image to a Panasonic Blu-ray
disc recorder that supports AVCHD

∫ Indemnity about recorded
content
Panasonic does not accept any responsibility
for damages directly or indirectly due to any
type of problems that result in loss of recording
or edited content, and does not guarantee any
content if recording or editing does not work
properly. Likewise, the above also applies in a
case where any type of repair is made to the
unit.
∫ About Condensation (When
the lens or the LCD monitor is
fogged up)
Condensation occurs when there is a change in
temperature or humidity, such as when the unit
is taken from outside or a cold room to a warm
room. Please be careful, as it may cause the
lens or LCD monitor to become soiled, moldy,
or damaged.
When taking the unit to a place which has a
different temperature, if the unit is accustomed
to the room temperature of the destination for
about one hour, condensation can be
prevented. (When the difference in temperature
is severe, place the unit in a plastic bag or the
like, remove air from the bag, and seal the bag.)
When condensation has occurred, remove the
battery and/or the AC adapter and leave the
unit like that for about one hour. When the unit
becomes accustomed to the surrounding
temperature, fogginess will disappear naturally.

are not adequately protected with internal protection to meet the requirements of
appropriate safety standards. There is a possibility that these battery packs may lead to
fire or explosion. Please be advised that we are not liable for any accident or failure
occurring as a result of use of a counterfeit battery pack. To ensure that safe products are
used we would recommend that a genuine Panasonic battery pack is used.
Removing the battery
Be sure to hold down the power button until the status
indicator goes off. Then remove the battery while
supporting the unit to prevent it from dropping.
