On moisture condensation
If the camcorder is brought directly from a cold place to a warm place, moisture may condense inside the camcorder. This may cause a malfunction to the camcorder.
If moisture condensation occurs
Leave the camcorder for about 1 hour without turning it on.
Where moisture condensation frequently occurs
Moisture may condense when you bring the camcorder from a cold place into a warm place (or vice versa) or when you use the camcorder in a humid place as follows:
- You bring the camcorder from a ski slope into a place warmed up by a heating device.
- You bring the camcorder from an air conditioned car or room into a hot place outside.
- You use the camcorder after a squall or a rain.
- You use the camcorder in a hot and humid place.
How to prevent moisture condensation
When you bring the camcorder from a cold place into a warm place, put the camcorder in a plastic bag and seal it tightly. Remove the bag when the air temperature inside the plastic bag has reached the surrounding temperature (after about 1 hour).
