∫ Cautions for use
Keep this unit as far away as possible from
electromagnetic equipment (such as
microwave ovens, TVs, video games etc.).
≥ If you use this unit on top of or near a TV, the
pictures and/or sound on this unit may be
disrupted by electromagnetic wave radiation.
≥ Do not use this unit near cell phones because
doing so may result in noise adversely
affecting the pictures and/or sound.
≥ Recorded data may be damaged, or pictures
may be distorted, by strong magnetic fields
created by speakers or large motors.
≥ Electromagnetic wave radiation generated by
microprocessors may adversely affect this
unit, disturbing the pictures and/or sound.
≥ If this unit is adversely affected by
electromagnetic equipment and stops
functioning properly, turn this unit off and
remove the battery or disconnect AC adaptor.
Then reinsert the battery or reconnect AC
adaptor and turn this unit on.
Do not use this unit near radio transmitters
or high-voltage lines.
≥ If you record near radio transmitters or
high-voltage lines, the recorded pictures and/
or sound may be adversely affected.
About connecting to a PC
≥ Do not use any other USB cables except the
supplied one.
About connecting to a TV
≥ Always use the supplied HDMI mini cable or
a genuine Panasonic HDMI mini cable
(RP-CDHM15, RP-CDHM30: optional).
Make sure to use the supplied cords and
cables. If you use optional accessories, use
the cords and the cables supplied with
them.
Do not extend the cords and the cables.
Do not spray insecticides or volatile
chemicals onto the unit.
≥ If the unit is sprayed with such chemicals, its
body may be marred and the surface finish
may peel off.
≥ Do not leave rubber or plastic products in
contact with the unit for a long time.
Cleaning
≥ Before cleaning, detach the battery or pull the
AC adaptor from the AC outlet, and then wipe
the unit with a soft, dry cloth.
≥ If the unit is very dirty, dip a cloth in water and
squeeze firmly, and then wipe the unit with
the damp cloth. Next, dry the unit with a dry
cloth.
≥ Use of benzine, paint thinner, alcohol, or
dishwashing liquid may alter the camera body
or peel the surface finish. Do not use these
solvents.
≥ When using a chemical dust cloth, follow the
instructions that came with the cloth.
When you are not going to use the unit for
an extended time
≥ When storing the unit in a cupboard or
cabinet, it is recommended that you place a
desiccant (silica gel) in with it.
Be sure to detach the battery after use.
≥ If the battery is left attached, a minute amount
of current continues to flow even if the unit is
off. Keeping the unit in this state may result in
over discharge of the battery. This may result
in you not being able to use the battery even
after it is charged.
≥ The battery should be stored in a cool place
free from humidity, with as constant
temperature as possible. (Recommended
temperature: 15 oC to 25 oC (59 oF to 77 oF),
Recommended humidity: 40%RH to 60%RH)
≥ To store the battery for a long period of time,
we recommend you charge it once every year
and store it again after you have completely
used up the charged capacity.
If the operating time is very short even after
the battery has been recharged, the battery
has worn out. Please purchase a new
battery.
The unit and the SD card become warm
during use. This is not a malfunction.

∫ 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.
∫ Cards that you can use with
this unit
SD Memory Card, SDHC Memory Card and
SDXC Memory Card

∫ About batteries that you can use with this unit
The battery that can be used with this unit is VW-VBT190/VW-VBT380.
≥ The unit has a function for distinguishing batteries which can be used safely. The
dedicated battery (VW-VBT190/VW-VBT380) supports this function. The only batteries
suitable for use with this unit are genuine Panasonic products and batteries manufactured
by other companies and certified by Panasonic. Panasonic cannot in any way guarantee
the quality, performance or safety of batteries which have been manufactured by other
companies and are not genuine Panasonic products.
Inserting/removing the battery
≥ Press the power button to turn off the unit. ( l 16)
Install the battery by inserting it in the direction shown in the figure.
Preparation
Power supply
It has been found that counterfeit battery packs which look very similar to the genuine
product are made available to purchase in some markets. Some of these battery packs
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.
Move the battery release lever in the direction
indicated by the arrow and remove the battery
when unlocked.
