Preparing the Power Supply XF705


You can power the camcorder using a battery pack or directly using the compact power adapter. If you connect the compact power adapter to the camcrder while a battery pact is attached, the camcorder will draw power from the power outlet.

Using a Battery Pack
You can power the camcorder using the supplied BP-A30 Battery Pack or the optional BP-A60 Battery Pack.  Both battery packs are compatible with Intelligent System so you can check the approximate remaining battery usage time (in minutes) on  the screen. For more accurate reading, when using a battery pack for the first time, charge it fully and then use the camcorder until the battery pack is completely exhausted.

Charging the Battery Pack
Charge battery packs using the supplied CG-A20 Battery Charger and CA-CP200 L Compact Power Adapter, or using a optional CG-A10 Battery Charger. Before charging, remove the terminal cover of the battery pack.
  1. Connect the power cord to the supplied CA-CP200 L Compact Power Adapter
  2. Plug the conpact power adapter's pwer cord into a power outlet.
  3. Connect the compact power adater's DC plug to the battery charger
  4. Attach the battery pack to the battery charger.
  • Press lightly and slide the battery pack in the direction of the arrow until it clicks
  • The CHARGE indicator starts flashing and also indicates the battery pack's approximate charge. The indicator will stay on when charging has completed
  1. When the battery pack is fully charged, remove it from the battery charger.
  2. Disconnect the DC plug from the battery charger.
  3. Unplug the power cord from the power outlet and disconnect the power cord from the compact power adapter
  • Do not connect to the battery chrger any product that is not expressly recommended for use with this camcorder
  • When using the battery charger or compack power adapter, do not fix it permanently to one place as this may cause a manfunction
  • We recommend charging the battery pack in terperatures between 10°C and 30°C (50°F and 86°F). Outside the temperature range of 0°C to 40°C (32°f to 104°F), charging will not start.
  • To prevent equipment breakdowns and excessive heating, do not connect the supplied battery charger or compact power adapter to woltage converts for overseas travels or special power sources such as those on aircraft and ships, DC-AC inverters, etc.
  • If there is a malfunction with the battery charger, compact power adapter or battery pack, the charge indicator will go out and charging will stop
  • Charged battery packs continue to discharge naturally.  Therefore, charge them on the day of use, or the day before, to ensure a full charge.
  • We recommend that you prepare battery packs to last 2 to 3 times longer that you think you might need
  • Repeatedly charging and discharging the battery pack will eventually shorten it battery life. You can check the battery life on the [Battery/Hour Meter] status screen. Fully charging the battery pack and then discharging it completely will give you a more accurate reading
