Getting Started
Make sure that the camera is off, and then open the battery cover
as shown below.
DUMMY
Note:
❏ To check the battery’s remaining charge, see “Remaining battery power”
on page 24.
❏ If you find that your battery has run out soon after recharging it a number
of times, make sure to discharge it completely before recharging it. Or, the
battery’s service life has ended. In that case, replace it with a new battery.
Installing and Removing a Memory Card
You cannot take photos unless an SD memory card is installed in your
camera.
Caution:
❏ Do not use the SD memory card with dust or lint on the terminal.
If the terminal of the card is dirty, data import or export may not
be executed properly.
❏ Never insert or remove a memory card while the SD card access
LED is being lit. Doing so may cause data in the card to be lost or
damaged.
❏ Avoid using or storing the card in direct sunlight, or in places that
are extremely hot, humid, or dusty.
❏ Keep the memory card slot cover closed while the memory card is
loaded. This protects the memory card and the slot from dust and
static; otherwise data on the memory card may be lost or damaged.
❏ Exposure of static electric shock to the memory card may cause this
product to malfunction.
Note:
To use a memory card correctly, read manuals provided with the memory card.
When using other devices with a memory card, also read manuals provided
with those devices.

Formatting a memory card
Installing a memory card
Format a memory card when you want to erase all the data on the card
or when a message on the LCD monitor instructs you to do so.
Caution:
❏ An SD memory card must be formatted in your camera. Using an
SD memory card formatted in a different camera may cause reading
or writing data errors. For details, see “Formatting a memory
card” on page 38.
❏ When you format an SD memory card, all the data on the card is
erased, including those locked with the camera’s lock function.
❏ While formatting an SD memory card, do not take the card out of
the camera.

About Indicator Needles
With the needle indicator on the top of the camera, you can check the
current status of the following four factors: the number of remaining
photos, photo quality, remaining battery power, and white balance.
The current statuses are indicated by 4 needles on the indicator.
Note:
When the needle indicator needs to be adjusted, you can calibrate the needles
manually. For details, see “Calibrating Indicator Needles” on page 32.
Photo Quality
The short needle on the right-side of the meter indicates the photo
quality setting. The current photo quality setting is indicated as N
(Normal: 2240 × 1488 pixels), H (High: 3008 × 2000 pixels), or R
(CCD-RAW) on the scale.
Remaining battery power
The short needle on the bottom of the meter indicates the remaining
battery power. The current battery level is indicated on the scale from
E (Empty) to F (Full).
White balance
The short needle on the left-side of the meter indicates the white balance
setting. The following icons indicate the current white balance settings.
