Face Detection The camcorder automatically detects people's faces and uses this information to select the optimal settings for beautiful videos and photos. When there are a number of people in the picture, one person (with the white face frame) will be determined to be the main subject. You can also select the main subject manually, so the camcorder optimizes the settings for the person selected. Operating _

To select the main subject If there is more than one person in the picture, the camcorder will automatically select one person it determines is the main subject. The main subject is indicated by a white face detection frame and the camcorder will optimize the settings for that person. Other faces will have gray frames. Select (4_) a different face to optimize the camcorder's settings for that person.

NOTES

Mainsubject

• The camcorder may mistakenly detect the faces of non-human subjects. In such case, turn face detection off. • In certain cases, faces may not be detected correctly. Typical examples include: - Faces extremely small, large, dark or bright in relation to the overall picture. - Faces turned to the side, at a diagonal or partially hidden. • Face detection cannot be used when the shutter speed used is slower than 1/30 (1/24 if the frame rate is set to [_ PF24]) or when the digital zoom is activated at more than 80x zoom (dark blue area on the zoom bar). • When face detection is activated, the slowest shutter speed used by the camcorder is 1/30 (1/24 if the frame rate is set to [l_] PF24]).

SavingMovies onto Standard-DefinitionDiscs (DVD)

You can convert your high-definition video recordings into standard definition and save them onto standard DVDs. These are ideal for sharing your videos with family and friends since, unlike AVCHD or Blu-ray discs, standard DVDs can be played back on most DVD players and computer DVD drives. You can complete the conversion to standard definition in the camcorder and then use the supplied software ImageMixer 3 SE to save the converted scenes and burn them onto DVDs in your computer. Your computer must have a preinstalled DVD drive with writing capabilities. I nsta Ilatio n See 'PIXELA Applications'

[_ Off]: Use this setting when the camcorder is mounted on a tripod. * If the degree of camcorder shake is too high, the image stabilizer may not be able to fully compensate. The image stabilizer may not be able to successfully eliminate all blur if the camcorder or the subject is moving too much. * The image stabilizer may not work well on subjects with low contrast, with a recurring, repetitive pattern or without vertical lines.

* Depending on the TV set, additional settings may be required on the TV itself to activate the HDMI-CEC function. Refer to the TV's instruction manual. * Correct operation of the HDMI-CEC function cannot be guaranteed even when connecting the camcorder to compatible TV sets. If you cannot use the remote control of the TV, set [Control for HDMI] to [1_ Off] and operate the camcorder directly. * The remote control of the TV can only be used to play back movies or photos ( or _ mode only). If the camcorder is connected to the TV while it is set to a recording mode, depending on the TV used, turning off the TV will automatically turn off the camcorder even if it is recording at the time. * We recommend not connecting more than 3 HDMI-CEC compatible devices at a time. [Phete MumberJng]; Select the photo numbering method to be used on a new memory card. Photos are automatically assigned consecutive numbers from 0101 to 9900, and stored in folders containing up to 100 photos. Folders are numbered from 101 to 998. [1"_-'1Reset]: Photo numbers will restart from 101-0101 every time you insert a new memory card. [_ Continuous]: Photo numbers will continue from the number following that of the last photo recorded with the camcorder. * If the memory card you insert already contains a photo with a larger number, a new photo will be assigned a number one higher than that of the last photo on the memory card. * We recommend using the [_ Continuous] setting. * The photo number indicates the name and location of the file on the memory card. For example, the file name of a photo numbered 101 0107 is "IMG 0107.JPG", stored under the folder "DCIM\101 CANON". [Firmware]: You can verify the current version of the camcorder's firmware.

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 ([:Z3111) 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 a 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 tripod, make sure that the tripod's fastening screw is shorter than 5.5 mm (0.2 in.). Using other tripods may damage the camcorder.

,, When recording movies, try to get a calm, stable picture. Excessive camcorder movement while shooting and extensive use of fast zooms and panning can result in jittery scenes. In extreme cases, the playback of such scenes may result in visually induced motion sickness. If you experience such a reaction, immediately stop the playback and take a rest break as necessary. L0ng-term storage If you do not intend to use the camcorder for a long time, store it in a place free of dust, in low humidity, and at temperatures not higher than 30 °C (86 °F).

Battery Pack DANGER! Treat the battery pack with care. • Keep it away from fire (or it might explode). • Do not expose the battery pack to temperature higher than 60 °C (140 °F). Do not leave it near a heater or inside a car in hot weather. • Do not try to disassemble or modify it. • Do not drop it or subject it to shocks. • Do not get it wet. • Attach the terminal cover whenever a battery pack is not in use. Contact with metallic objects may cause a short circuit and damage the battery pack. • Dirty terminals may cause a poor contact between the battery pack and the camcorder. Wipe the terminals with a soft cloth.

L0ng-termstorage • Store batterypacks in a dry place at temperatures no higherthan 30 °C (8s °F). • Toextend the battery lifeof the battery pack, discharge it completely before storing it. • Chargeand dischargeall your battery packs fullyat least once a year.

Built-in RechargeableLithium Battery The camcorder has a built-in rechargeable lithium battery to keep the date/time and other settings. The built-in lithium battery is recharged while you use the camcorder; however, it will discharge completely if you do not use the camcorder for about 3 months. To recharge the built-in lithium battery: Connect the compact power adapter to the camcorder and leave it connected for 24 hours with the camcorder off.

Disposal When you delete movies or initialize the memory, 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 ([Z3 38). Fill it up with unimportant recordings, and then initialize it again using the same option. This makes recovering the original recordings very difficult.
