Precautions
USE & LOCATION
≥ TO AVOID SHOCK HAZARD … Your camera
and power supply should not be exposed to
rain or moisture. Do not connect the power
supply or operate your camera if it gets wet.
Your camera has been designed for outdoor
use, however it is not designed to sustain
direct exposure to water, rain, sleet, snow,
sand, dust, or a direct splashing from a pool or
even a cup of coffee. This action could
permanently damage the internal parts of your
camera. Do not attempt to disassemble this
unit. There are no user serviceable parts
inside. Unplug your camera from the power
supply before cleaning.
≥ AS WITH ANY SMALL OBJECT, SD CARDS
CAN BE SWALLOWED BY YOUNG
CHILDREN. DO NOT ALLOW CHILDREN TO
HANDLE THE SD CARD.
≥ DO NOT AIM YOUR CAMERA AT THE SUN
OR OTHER BRIGHT OBJECTS
≥ DO NOT LEAVE THE CAMERA WITH THE
EVF AIMED DIRECTLY AT THE SUN AS
THIS MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE
INTERNAL PARTS OF THE EVF
≥ DO NOT EXPOSE YOUR CAMERA TO
EXTENDED HIGH TEMPERATURE … Such
as, in direct sunlight, inside a closed car, next
to a heater, etc… This action could
permanently damage the internal parts of your
camera.
≥ AVOID SUDDEN CHANGES IN
TEMPERATURE … If the unit is suddenly
moved from a cold place to a warm place,
moisture may form on the SD card and inside
the unit.
≥ DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CAMERA OR THE
POWER SUPPLY TURNED ON WHEN NOT

∫ About batteries that you can use with this unit
The Panasonic battery that can be used with this unit is VW-VBG130/VW-VBG260/VW-VBG6.
VW-VBG130/VW-VBG260/VW-VBG6 come with a function to check whether the battery and unit can
be safely used together.
≥ To use the VW-VBG6 for this unit, the battery pack holder kit VW-VH04 (optional) is required.
Important:
If the DC cable is connected to the AC adaptor, then the battery will not charge. Remove the DC
cable from the AC adaptor.
1 Connect the AC cable to the AC adaptor and the AC outlet.
2 Insert the battery into the battery charger by aligning the arrows.
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.
≥ Be aware that many batteries sold at extremely cheap prices or in situations where it is difficult to
verify the actual products before purchase have proven to be counterfeit.

≥ The actual recordable time refers to the recordable time when repeatedly starting/stopping recording,
turning the unit on/off, moving the zoom lever etc.
≥ The recordable times will vary depending on the status of use. Be aware that the operating time of the
battery will become shorter in low temperatures. We recommend charging a spare battery for use
when recording.
