Inserting and Removing a Tape

Use only videocassettes marked with the

recommend using tapes specifically 
designed for high definition.

direction of the arrow and open the 
cassette compartment cover.

automatically.

facing the grip belt.

• To remove the cassette pull it straight 

out.

Press the 

 mark on the 

cassette compartment until it clicks.

Wait for the cassette compartment 
to retract automatically and close 
the cassette compartment cover.

IMPORTANT

  Do not interfere with the cassette 
compartment while it is opening or closing 
automatically, or attempt to close the cover 
before the cassette compartment has fully 
retracted.
  Be careful not to get your fingers caught in 
the cassette compartment cover.

NOTES

If the camcorder is connected to a power 
source, cassettes can be inserted/removed 
even if the
