Additional information
When there is dew condensation, put the camcorder aside 
for a while before using
What is dew condensation?
 
Dew condensation happens when a camcorder is moved to a 
location where there is a significant temperature difference from 
the previous location. The dew condenses on the external or 
internal parts of the camcorder, and on the reflection lens. If there 
is dew on or in your camcorder, it may cause the camcorder to 
malfunction or damage the camcorder when you turn the power 
on.
Exactly when does dew condensation occur?
 
When you move the camera to a location with a higher 
temperature than the previous location, or when you move it to a 
hot area suddenly. Examples:
- You record outside in cold weather during the winter and then 
move the camera in indoors.
- You record outside in hot weather after being indoors or inside a 
car where the A/C was running.
What can I do?
- Turn the power off, detach the battery, and leave the camcorder 
in a dry area for 1~2 hours before using it.
Use the camcorder only after dew condensation has completely 
disappeared. 
Be sure to use the recommended accessories supplied with the 
camcorder. For service, contact your nearest Samsung authorized 
service center.
