How do I change the settings so the camera does not auto power off?
Asked by: Zack
Thank you for reaching out. As stated on page 37 of the Operating Manual, the unit will not turn off unless the LCD monitor is closed and the viewfinder is retracted. Keep those open and the camera stays on.

Can you copy SD cards to a hard drive?
Asked by: Karen
The HC-X1000 would allow copying directly from the SD cards in the camera to an external hard drive via a USB connection. Apparently you can't do this with this camera.

I bought this camera about 6 months ago and love it. I use it for depositions, it may be overkill, but is there a way to move, size or change the opacity of the big black box with the time stamp in it? It is more often in the way of the of the witness. It is also a little left of center. Thank you.
Asked by: tom
The size of the characters and the display position of the time stamp varies depending on the recording format. The position to display the time stamp can not be changed.

Panasonic claims that they have tested SD cards up to 128 GB. Is this camcorder able to utilize SD cards larger than 128 GB? Have any third parties tested this?
Asked by: Nick
I have discovered that cards larger than 128 GB do in fact work. I have tested cards up to 1 TB. The time remaining estimate cannot display anything over 999 minutes, but other than that there are no functional problems whatsoever.
