Charging time and recordable time
The times shown in the tables below are for when the temperature is 25 oC (77 oF) and the humidity is 60%. If the temperature is higher or lower than 25 oC (77 oF), the charging time will become longer.

A Charging time B Maximum continuously recordable time C Actual recordable time (The actual recordable time refers to the recordable time on tape when repeatedly starting/ stopping recording, turning the unit on/off, moving the zoom lever etc.) ≥The charging time and recordable time shown in the table are approximations. The times indicate the recordable time when the viewfinder is used. The times in parentheses indicate the recordable time when the LCD monitor is used. ≥We recommend the Battery Pack VW-VBG130, VW-VBG260 and VW-VBG6 for long recording time (2 hours or more for continuous recording, 1 hour or more for actual recording).
≥Hold the battery with your hand so it does not fall. ≥Before removing the battery, be sure to set the Mode
dial to OFF and check that the status indicator is off. ≥Do not heat or expose to flame. ≥Do not leave a battery pack in an automobile
≥The actual time may become shorter than this. The recordable time shown in the table are approximations. The recordable time will become shorter in the following cases: ≥When you use both the viewfinder and the LCD monitor simultaneously while rotating the LCD monitor frontward to record yourself, etc.
