When recording motion pictures, it is recommended to use a sufficiently charged battery or an AC 
adaptor (optional) and DC coupler (optional).
When recording motion pictures using an AC adaptor, if you unplug the AC adaptor or a power 
outage occurs, power to the camera is cut, and the motion picture in progress is no longer recorded.
If you attempt to play motion pictures recorded with the camera on other devices, playback may not 
be possible, or the picture or sound quality may be poor. Additionally, incorrect recording information 
may be indicated.
Motion pictures recorded with the camera cannot be played on Panasonic LUMIX digital cameras 
sold before July 2008. (However, motion pictures recorded with LUMIX digital cameras sold before 
this date can be played on this camera.)
