About the HDMI connection
The HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) connection is a convenient all-digital connection using a single cable for video and audio. The camcorder adjusts the output resolution based on the capability of the HDTV.
  • The HDMI OUT terminal on the camcorder is for output only. Do not connect it to an HDMI output terminal on an external device, as this may damage the camcorder.
  • If remaining battery time is an issue, you can power the camcorder using the compact power adapter so the battery pack will not be consumed.
  • Correct operation cannot be guaranteed when connecting the camcorder to DVI monitors.
  • Depending on the HDTV, correct playback of personal video content may not be possible using HDMI connection.
  • Sound from the built-in speaker will be muted while a cable is connected to the HDMI terminal.
  • Audio and video will not be output from the HDMI terminal while using Wi-Fi functions and during interval recording, slow/fast motion and photo mode.
  • AVCHD-compatible HDTVs and digital recorders with a compatible memory card slot can play back AVCHD movies you record with this camcorder*. Refer to the instruction manual of the device used.
*Depending on the device used, correct playback may not be possible even if the device is AVCHD-compatible. In such case, play back the recordings on the memory card using the camcorder.
