What types of batteries can I use and how do the affect my usage?

Last Update Date : Apr 19. 2018


• Charging time: Approximate time in minutes required to fully charge a completely exhausted battery.

• Recording /Playback time: Approximate time available when you have fully charged the battery.

• The time is only for reference. Times shown above are measured under Samsung’s test conditions. Your times may differ, depending on your usage and conditions.

• The recording and playback times will be shorter when you use your camcorder in low temperatures.

• We recommend using the power adaptor when using the Time Lapse REC function.

Continuous Recording (without zoom)

The continuous recording time shows the available recording time when you record without using any other function after recording starts.

The battery may discharge 1.5 times faster than this reference if you use the record start/stop, the zoom, and the playback function.

Prepare additional batteries with the expectation that the actual recording time is about 60% of the times listed above.

Using an AC power source.

We recommend that you use the power adaptor to power the camcorder from a household AC outlet when recording and playing back the camcorder indoors. The connection is the same as that for battery charging.


• The charging time will vary depending on the amount of charge left in the battery.

• Depending on your PC specifications, the charging time can be prolonged.
