EnjoyingHigh-DefinitionVideowith your Camcorder Preserve your most treasured memories, be it unforgettable scenery or cherished moments spent with family and friends, with high-definition video recordings of a quality second only to actually being there.

What is High-DefinitionVideo?

1,080 lines

movementor shine of a single Capture finest detail,like the strandofthe hair

Your camcorder features a full high-definition image sensor (Full HD CMOS) that captures video at a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels 1. This results in video recordings of unparalleled high quality, fine detail and lifelike vivid colors. How does full high definition compare with standard-definition broadcasts? _

TV

Approximately 6 times the number of pixels. More than twice the number of scanning lines.

"Full HD 1080" refers to Canon camcorders compliant with high-definition video composed of 1,080 vertical pixels (scanning lines).

1 Video is recorded at this resolution only when the recording mode is set to MXP or FXP mode. In other recording modes, the picture is recorded at 1,440 x 1,080 pixels.



What are the advantages of flash memory? Your videos and photos are recorded in the built-in memory (_ only) or on commercially available SD/SDHC memory cards 2 using AVCHD specifications 3. Recording on flash memory means that there are no moving parts in the recorder unit of the camcorder. To you, it means a camcorder that is smaller, lighter and faster. In fact, using the Quick Start function (_[3 48) you can open the LCD panel and start recording within approximately one second.

Any New Functions? Pre-recording When pre-recording (_C368) is activated, the camcorder starts recording video continuously into a temporary 3-second memory. When you press the __ button, the scene recorded will have started 3 seconds before you started shooting. This is especially useful when it is difficult to predict when to start recording. Face Detection With face detection (_ 72), have the camcorder automatically detect people's faces and use this information to adjust the focus and set the best exposure for beautiful videos and photos.

Video Snapshot Discover a new fun way to shoot video with video snapshot scenes (E_ 66). Shoot short (approx. 4-second) scenes and arrange them into a video clip set to your favorite background music. Cinema Mode Give your recordings a cinematic look by using the [ _ Cine Mode] recording program (_ 65) with the 24 fps progressive frame rate.

2 For details about memory cards that can be used with this camcorder refer to Using a Memory Card (_ 41). 3 AVCHD is the new standard for recording high-definition video. With AVCHD specifications, the video signal is recorded using MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 compression and the audio signal is recorded in Dolby Digital.



Can I play back my high-definitionvideo on other devices? Needless to say, you can connect your camcorder to an HDTV to enjoy your recordings with family and friends (Q3 120). You also have the following options: • You can easily play back video recorded on the memory card by inserting the memory card directly into AVCHD-compatible TV sets and HDD or DVD recorders that feature an SD/SDHC memory card slot 4. For details, refer to the instruction manual of your TV or digital video recorder. • You can play back AVCHD discs of your recordings created using the optional DW-100 DVD Burner (C[3 122) on the DVD Burner itself or on AVCHD-compatible DVD players or Blu-ray Disc players 5.

4 Depending on the device used, correct playback may not be possible even if the device is AVCHD-compatible. In such case, play back the recordings on the memory card using the camcorder. 5 AVCHD discs containing scenes recorded in MXP mode cannot be created with the optional DW-100 DVD burner. Use the software on the supplied Video Tools CD-ROM to back up such scenes.

precautions to ensure maximum per-

• Save your recordings periodically. Make sure to transfer your recordings to an external device such as a computer or digital video recorder (B3 121) and save them on a regular basis. This will protect your important recordings in case of damage and create more free space on the memory. Canon shall not be liable for any data loss. • Do not carry the camcorder by the LCD panel. Be careful when closing the LCD panel. When using the wrist strap, do not allow the camcorder to swing and hit an object. • Do not leave the camcorder in places subject to high temperatures (like the inside of a car parked under direct sunlight), or high humidity. • Do not use the camcorder near strong electromagnetic fields such as above TVs, near plasma TVs or mobile phones. • Do not point the lens at strong light sources. Do not leave the camcorder pointed at a bright subject. • Do not use or store the camcorder in dusty or sandy places. The camcorder is not waterproof - avoid also water, mud or salt. If any of the above should get into the camcorder it may damage the camcorder and/or the lens. • Be careful of heat generated by lighting equipment. • Do not disassemble the camcorder. If the camcorder does not function properly, consult qualified service personnel. • Handle the camcorder with care. Do not subject the camcorder to shocks or vibration as this may cause damage. • When mounting the camcorder on a ._ 5.5 mm tripod, make sure that the tripod's fastening screw is shorter than 5.5 mm (0.2 in.).

Disposal When you delete movies or initialize the built-in memory (_ only) or memory card, only the file allocation table is altered and stored data is not physically erased. Take the necessary precautions when you dispose of the camcorder or memory card, for example by physically damaging it to prevent the leakage of private data. If giving the camcorder or memory card to another person, initialize the built-in memory (_ only) or memory card using the [Complete Initialization] option (Q3 43).
