Note on laser beams

If you use the Line Lock function in an operating environment where power quality is poor, the monitor image may be distorted.
The following phenomena that may appear in images are specific to CCD (Charge Coupled Device) image sensors. They do not indicate malfunctions.
Although the CCD image sensors are produced with high-precision technologies, fine white flecks may be generated on the screen in rare cases, caused by cosmic rays, etc.
This is related to the principle of CCD image sensors and is not a malfunction.
The white flecks especially tend to be seen in the following cases:
When an extremely bright object, such as a strong spotlight or flashlight, is being shot, vertical tails may be produced on the screen, or the image may be distorted.
When fine patterns, stripes, or lines are shot, they may appear jagged or flicker.
The screw holes for attaching the tripod are located on both the top and bottom of the camera. Use a 1/4" 20 UNC screw to attach a tripod to the camera. The tripod must be set up on a flat surface and tightened firmly by hand.
Use the mounting screw whose length is 4.5 mm – 7 mm only. Use of other screws may cause improper mounting and damage parts inside the camera.
