minutes on HQ mode. These recording times apply when using an XDCAM EX series product.
Q8: How long can you record using the battery?
A8: The lithium ion battery allows up to a maximum of 12 hours of continuous operation.
Q9: How do I use “drive select”?
A9: Use the drive select switch to select the partition drive (A or B) that the camcorder records to
or plays back from. The indicator for the selected drive will illuminate. Use the switch before
turning on the power. If the switch is used while the power is on, the selected drive will be
available the next time the power is turned on.

Q15: What is the recommended battery for PHU-120K?
A15: BP-U30 is the recommended battery. BP-U60 can also be used but because it is bigger and
heavier than BP-U30, may come into contact with other peripherals attached to the camcorder
and cause increased shock if the drive is dropped.

PHU-120K Reliability

Q18: Where shouldn’t I use PHU-120K?
A18: It is highly recommended that you do not use PHU-120K near equipment that emits
vibration, high static electricity or a magnetic field. Low-pressure areas where the altitude is more
than 5000 meters should also be avoided.
Q19: Will the date be damaged if the PHU-120K gets wet?
A19: There is a possibility of drive and data damage if the PHU-120K is immersed in water. The
unit is not water resistant and you should ensure it is kept dry at all times.
Q20: Can I record with PHU-120K in areas of vibration?
A20: If the unit is exposed to a constant vibration during operation, recording or playback may be
stopped to protect the HDD. In such cases, integrity of the data during vibration is not guaranteed.
Q21: How shock resistant is the unit and what type of shock control system is used?
A21: PHU-120K is equipped with a 3G sensor to protect the internal HDD when the unit is
dropped or overturned. The sensor detects differences in acceleration and may activate the drive
protection function and automatically park the HDD head to prevent damage to the disk.
Q22: Will the unit break when dropped? If so, from how high?
Tests show the unit can resist damage from a drop of 150cm. However, this does not
guarantee protection from this height. Our test conditions featured a drop from 1.5m onto a P-tile
surface with each of the 6 sides of the PHU-120K facing the ground.

Q23: How long is the warranty?
: 1 year.
Q24: How do I recover damaged data?
Q24: Please contact your Sony representative or Customer Service centre.
