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 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 IN USE.
≥ STORAGE OF YOUR CAMERA … Store
and handle your camera in a manner that
will not subject it to unnecessary
movement (avoid shaking and striking).
Your camera contains a sensitive pick-up
device which could be damaged by
improper handling or storage.
CARE
≥ TO CLEAN YOUR CAMERA … Do not
use strong or abrasive detergents when
cleaning your camera body.
≥ TO PROTECT THE LENS … Do not touch
the surface of the lens with your hand.
Use a commercial camera lens solution
and lens paper when cleaning the lens.
Improper cleaning can scratch the lens
coating.
≥ TO PROTECT THE FINISH OF YOUR
CAMERA … Before handling your
camera, make sure your hands and face
are free from any chemical products, such
as suntan lotion, as it may damage the
finish.

∫ 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
(including any other non-built-in memory/
HDD related component).
∫ Handling of built-in memory
[HDC-TM55/HDC-TM60]
This unit is equipped with the built-in 8 GB
[HDC-TM55]/16 GB [HDC-TM60] memory.
When using this component, pay attention to
the following points.
Back up data periodically.
The built-in memory is temporary storage. In
order to avoid erasing data due to static
electricity, electromagnetic waves,
breakage, and failures, back up the data to a
PC or DVD disc. ( l 101, 109)
≥ Access lamp [ACCESS] ( l 15) illuminates
while the SD card or built-in memory is
being accessed (initialization, recording,
playback, deleting etc.). Do not perform
the following operations when the lamp
illuminates. It may damage the built-in
memory or cause a malfunction in the unit.
jTurn the unit off (remove the battery)
jInsert and remove the USB cable
jExpose the unit to vibrations or shock
≥ About disposing of or giving away this unit.
( l 134)
∫ Handling of HDD [HDC-HS60]
This unit is equipped with the built-in 120 GB
HDD. While the HDD is capable of storing a
large amount of data, there are a few things
to look out for. When using this component,
pay attention to the following points.
Do not expose the HDD to vibrations and
shocks.
Due to the environment and handling
conditions, the HDD may be subject to
partial damages or may not be able to read,
record, and play back data. Do not expose
the unit to vibrations or shock, and do not
turn off the power during recording or
playback.
If the unit is used in a place with loud
sounds, such as a club or similar venue,
the recording may stop due to sound
vibrations. Recording data on an SD card
is recommended in these places.
Back up data periodically.
The HDD is temporary storage. In order to
avoid erasing data due to static electricity,
electromagnetic waves, breakage, and
failures, back up the data to a PC or DVD
disc. ( l 101, 109)
If the HDD experiences any abnormality,
back up data immediately.
Failure in the HDD may produce continuous
noise or choppy sound during recording or
playing back. Continuous use will cause
further deterioration, and may eventually
disable the HDD. If these phenomena are
observed, copy the data on the HDD to a
PC, a DVD disc etc. immediately and
contact consumer support. ( l 152, 153)
Once the HDD is out of order, data cannot
be restored.
HDCSD60_TM60_HS60-P_PC-VQT2M51_eng.book 7 ページ 2010年1月18日 月曜日 午前11時33分8
VQT2M51
Operation may stop in hot or cold
environments.
The unit is disabled in order to protect the
HDD.
Do not use the unit in low atmospheric
pressures.
The HDD may fail if it is used at altitudes of
3000 m (9800 feet) or higher above sea
level.
Transportation
When the unit is transported, turn off the
power and be careful not to shake, drop, or
cause impact to the unit.
Falling detection
[ ] is indicated on the screen when it
detects a falling state (a weightless state). If
the falling state is detected repeatedly, the
unit may stop the recording or playback
operation in order to protect the HDD.
≥ HDD access lamp [ACCESS HDD] ( l 20)

accessed (initialization, recording,
playback, deleting etc.). Do not perform
the following operations when the lamp
illuminates. It may damage the HDD or
cause a malfunction in the unit.
jTurn the unit off (remove the battery)
jInsert and remove the USB cable
jExpose the unit to vibrations or shock
≥ About disposing of or giving away this unit.

∫ About batteries that you can use with this unit
The battery that can be used with this unit is VW-VBK180/VW-VBK360.
≥ This unit has a function to distinguish the batteries that can be used, and the
batteries (VW-VBK180/VW-VBK360) that are compatible with this function. (The
batteries that are not compatible with this function cannot be used.)
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.
