Tips for using the battery pack
This section shows you how you can get the most out of your battery pack.
Preparing the battery pack
Always carry additional batteries
Have sufficient battery pack power to do 2 to 3 times as much recording as you have planned.
Battery life is shorter in a cold environment
Battery efficiency is decreased, and the battery will be used up more quickly, if you are recording in a cold environment.
To save battery power
Turn STANDBY down when not recording to save battery power. A smooth transition between scenes can be made even if recording is stopped and started again. While you are positioning the subject, selecting an angle, or looking through the viewfinder lens or on the LCD screen, the lens moves automatically and the battery is used. The battery is also used when a tape is inserted or removed.
When to replace the battery pack
While you are using your camcorder, the remaining battery indicator decreases gradually as battery power is used up. Remaining time in minutes appears.
When the remaining battery indicator reaches the lowest point, the i indicator may appear and start flashing in the viewfinder or on the LCD screen. When the i indicator changes from slow flashing to rapid flashing while you are recording, set the POWER switch to OFF on the camcorder and replace the battery pack. Leave the tape in the camcorder to obtain a smooth transition between scenes after the battery pack has been replaced.
