Adjusting the Grip, Attaching the Shoulder Strap, Using a Tripod


Preparing the Camcorder

• About the LCD screen: The screen is produced using extremely high-precision manufacturing techniques, with 

more than 99.99% of the pixels operating to specification. Less than 0.01% of the pixels may occasionally 
misfire or appear as black, red, blue or green dots. This has no effect on the recorded image and does not 
constitute a malfunction.

• If the screen appears dim, you can adjust the brightness using the [

System Setup] 

> [1] > 

[LCD Brightness] and [LCD Backlight] settings.

Adjusting the Grip

The grip can be rotated 90 degrees toward or away from the 
lens to give you a convenient grip angle.

While firmly holding the camcorder, rotate the grip to the 
desired position.

Attaching the Shoulder Strap

Pass the ends through the strap mounts and adjust the 
length of the shoulder strap.


• Be careful not to drop the camcorder when attaching or 

adjusting the shoulder strap.

Using a Tripod

You can mount the camcorder on a tripod with a mounting screw of 6.5 mm (0.26 in.) or 
smaller. Using tripods with longer mounting screws may cause damage to the 

6.5 mm
