Setting the Date and Time

You will need to set the date and time of 
the camcorder before you can start 
using it. The [Date/Time] screen will 
appear automatically when the cam-
corder’s clock is not set.
When the [Date/Time] screen appears, 
the year will be selected.
1 Change (

) the year and move (

) to the month.

2 Change the rest of the fields (month, day, hour and minutes) in the 

same way.

3 Select (

) [OK] and press 

 to start the clock and close the 

setup screen.

NOTES

• When you do not use the camcorder for about 3 months, the built-in 

rechargeable lithium battery may discharge completely and the date 
and time setting may be lost. In such case, recharge the built-in lithium 
battery (

170) and set the time zone, date and time again.

• The date appears in a year-month-day format only in the first setup 

screen. In subsequent screen displays the date and time will appear as 
month-day-year (for example, [Jan. 1, 2009 12:00 AM]). You can 
change the date format (

150).

• You can also change the date and time later on (not during the initial 

setup). Open the [Date/Time] screen from the setup menus:
