USING THE BUILT-IN CAMERA LIGHT (Only for VM-7400A)
- 52 -
When "LIGHT" is set to "AUTO", the camera light turns on automatically when the camcorder is pointed at
objects in a dark place and turns off when it is pointed at objects in a bright place.
CAUTION: The power consumption of the built-in camera light is about a half that of the camcorder. Therefore,
if the camera light is turned on when a fully charged battery pack is attached, the operating time of the battery
falls to about a half.
1 Make sure that a fully charged battery pack or AC adaptor/charger is attached.
2. Set "CAM/OFF/VIDEO" to "CAM" and then set "LIGHT" to "AUTO" when required.
NOTE: When "LIGHT" is set to "ON", the camera light will turn on whenever you make a recording.
• Turn the camera light on only when you need it, otherwise the operating time of the battery pack is shortened
due to the power consumption of the camera light.
• When "LIGHT" is set to "AUTO", the camera light does not turn on unless a cassette is loaded.
CAUTION: Do not hold the unit by the built-in camera light when carrying as this could cause a malfunction.
3. After use, set "LIGHT" to "OFF' or set "CAM/ OFF/VIDEO" of the camcorder to "OFF" position.
• During operation and/or after use of the camera light, the front surface and lamp of the camera light will be
very hot. To avoid burns or hair damage, do not touch them with your hand.
• When the camera light is on, do not allow water to drop on the light.
• When the camera light is on, avoid subjecting the camera light to impacts or sharp vibrations.
• Do not allow the cooling vents to become blocked. Also, do not cover the camera light with paper or other
objects, since the air flow will be interrupted, resulting in possible overheating hazard.
• Never use the camera light in the vicinity of explosive or highly inflammable materials.
• After using the camera light, cool the camera light section sufficiently before storing the camcorder in the case.
• Replace only with the specified lamp (optional) to reduce the risk of fire.
