Can I shoot while the compact power adapter (AC adapter) is connected?


Shooting is possible when the compact power adapter (AC adapter) is connected.
  • The camcorder may become hot after using it continuously for long periods of time; this is not a malfunction. If the camcorder becomes unusually hot or it becomes hot after using it only for a short while, it may indicate a problem with the camcorder. Consult a Canon Service Center.
  • A faint sound can be heard while the compact power adapter is connected to a power outlet. This is not a malfunction.
  • To prevent equipment breakdowns and excessive heating, do not connect the supplied compact power adapter to voltage converters for overseas travels or special power sources such as those on aircraft and ships, DC-AC inverters, etc.
  • On some camcorder models, when the camcorder is powered with the compact power adapter and left turned on without a memory card for more than 5 minutes, the demonstration mode [Demo Mode], which displays the camcorder’s main features, will start automatically. To cancel the demo mode once it has started, press any button or turn off the camcorder.
