Prepare the battery pack
• Connect the battery charger to an easily accessible wall outlet (wall socket) close by.
• Even if the CHARGE lamp is not lit, the battery charger is not disconnected from the AC power source 
(mains) as long as it is connected to the wall outlet (wall socket). If some trouble occurs while using the 
battery charger, immediately shut off the power by disconnecting the plug from the wall outlet (wall socket).
• When charging is finished, disconnect the power cord (mains lead) from the wall outlet (wall socket), and 
remove the battery pack from the battery charger.
• The time required to fully charge the supplied battery pack from when it is completely discharged at a 
temperature of 25°C (77°F) is approximately 220 min., and the practical charging time is approximately 
160 min. Charging may take longer under certain circumstances or conditions.

Notes
• Charge the supplied NP-FT1 battery pack before using the camera for the first time.
• The LCD screen is manufactured using extremely high-precision technology so over 99.99% of the 
pixels are operational for effective use. However, there may be some tiny black points and/or bright 
points (white, red, blue or green in color) that constantly appear on the LCD screen. These points are 
normal in the manufacturing process and do not affect the recording in any way.
• The camera is a precision instrument. Be careful not 
to bump the lens or the LCD screen, and not to apply 
force to it. Attach the strap to prevent the camera 
from damage by being dropped, etc.
