Setting the Date and Time

You will need to set the date and time of the camcorder before you can 
start using it. When the camcorder’s clock is not set, the [Date/Time] 
screen will appear automatically with the month selected.

1 Press the ON/OFF button to turn on the camcorder.

• The POWER/CHG indicator will illuminate and the [Date/Time] 

screen will appear.

2 Touch a field you want to change (year, month, day, hours or 

minutes).

• You can also push the joystick (

Þ) to move between the fields 

and then press the joystick to make your selection.

3 Touch [

Í] or [Î] to change the field as necessary.

• You can also push the joystick (

Ý) to change the field.

4 Set the correct date and time by changing all the fields in the same way.

5 Touch [Y.M.D], [M.D,Y] or [D.M.Y] to select the date format you prefer.

• You can also push the joystick (

Þ) to move between the fields and then press the joystick to make your 

selection.

• In some screens, the date will be displayed in short form (numbers instead of month names or only the day 

and month), but it will still follow the order you selected. 

6 Touch [24H] to use 24-hour clock or leave it unselected to use 12-hour clock (AM/PM).

• You can also push the joystick (

Þ) to move between the fields and then press the joystick to make your 

selection.

7 Touch [OK] to start the clock and close the setup screen.

selection.

NOTES

• You can adjust the date and time later on with the [

System Setup] 

> [1] > [Date/Time] setting.

• 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 (

A 157) and set the time zone, date and time again.

• Using the optional GP-E2 GPS Receiver, you can have the camcorder adjust settings automatically according 

to the UTC date/time information received from the GPS signal (

A 100).
