LCD Panel
The liquid crystal panel of the monitor screen uses high-precision technology that
provides a pixel yield in excess of 99.99%. This means that some very small number
of pixels may not light or may remain lit at all times. This is due to the characteristics
of the liquid crystal panel, and does not indicate malfunction.
Take a few test shots
Before shooting your final image, shoot a test shot to ensure that the camera is
recording correctly.

– Date and time: Page 109
NOTE
• Each country controls its local time offset and the use of summer time, and so they
are subject to change.
• Removing the battery from the camera too soon after configuring time and date
settings for the first time can cause the settings to be reset to their factory defaults.
Do not remove the battery for at least 24 hours after configuring settings.
Preparing a Memory Card
Though the camera has built-in memory that can be used to store images and
movies, you probably will want to purchase a commercially available memory card for
greater capacity. The camera does not come with a memory card. Images recorded
while a memory card is loaded are saved to the memory card. When no memory card
is loaded, images are saved to built-in memory.
• For information about memory card capacities, see page 136.

3.
Use [4] and [6] to select the “Set Up” tab.
4.
Use [8] and [2] to select “Format” and then press [6].
5.
Use [8] and [2] to select “Format” and then press [SET].
IMPORTANT!
• Formatting a memory card that already has snapshots or other files on it, will delete
its contents. Normally you do not need to format a memory card again. However, if
storing to a card has slowed down or if you notice any other abnormality, re-format
the card.
• Be sure to use the camera to format a memory card. Formatting a memory card on
a computer and then using it in the camera can slow down data processing by the
camera. In the case of an SD, SDHC, or SDXC memory card, formatting on a
computer can result in non-conformity with the SD format, causing problems with
compatibility, operation, etc.
• Before formatting a new Eye-Fi card to use it for the first time, copy the Eye-Fi
Manager install files to your computer. Do this before formatting the card.

Snapshot Shooting Precautions
Operation
• Never open the battery cover while the back lamp is flashing green. Doing so can
result in the image you just shot being saved incorrectly, damage to other images
stored in memory, malfunction of the camera, etc.
• If unwanted light is shining directly onto the lens, shade the lens with your hand
when shooting an image.
Monitor Screen when Shooting Snapshots
• Subject brightness conditions can cause monitor screen response to slow and can
cause digital noise in the monitor screen image.
• The image that appears on the monitor screen is for image composition. The actual
image will be recorded at the quality set for the image quality setting (page 64).
Shooting Indoors under Fluorescent Lighting
• Minute flickering of fluorescent lighting can affect the brightness or color of an
image.
Auto Focus Restrictions
• Any of the following can make proper focus impossible.
– Solid color wall or other very low contrast subject
– Strongly back lit subject
– Very shiny subject
– Blinds or other subject with a repeating horizontal pattern
– Multiple subjects at varying distances from the camera
– Subject in a dark location
– Camera movement while shooting
– Fast-moving subject
– Subjects outside the focus range of the camera
• If you cannot focus properly, try using focus lock (page 58) or Manual Focus (page

Changing the Image Size (Size)
. Pixels
A digital camera image is a collection of small
dots called “pixels”. The more pixels there are
in an image, the more detail there will be.
However, you generally can do with fewer
pixels when printing an image (L size) through
a print service, attaching an image to e-mail,
when viewing the image on a computer, etc.

Snapshot Tutorial
NOTE
• Take care so your fingers and the strap do not block the flash.
• The desired effect may not be obtained when the subject is too far away or too
close.
• Flash charging time (page 139) depends on operating conditions (battery
condition, ambient temperature, etc.).
• Shooting with flash turned off when lighting is dim results in a slow shutter speed,
which can cause image blur due to camera movement. Under such conditions,
secure the camera with a tripod, etc.
• With red eye reduction, the flash is fired automatically in accordance with
exposure. It does not fire in areas where lighting is bright.
• The presence of outdoor sunlight, fluorescent lighting, or some other light source
can cause abnormal image colors.
• Select ? (Flash Off) for the flash setting when shooting in areas where flash
photograph is prohibited.
Red-eye Reduction
Using the flash to shoot at night or in a dimly lit room can cause red spots inside the
eyes of people who are in the image. This is caused when the light from the flash
reflects off of the retina of the eye. When red-eye reduction is selected as the flash
mode, the camera fires a pre-flash to cause the irises in the eyes of any people in the
image to close, which reduces the chance of red eye.
Note the following important points when using red-eye reduction.
• Red-eye reduction does not work unless the people in the image are looking
directly at the camera (flash).
• Red-eye reduction may not work very well if the subjects are located far away from
the camera.

Recording Movie Images and Audio
NOTE
• Spending a long time using movie recording will cause the camera to become
slightly warm to the touch. This is normal and does not indicate malfunction.
• The camera also records audio. Note the following points when
shooting a movie.
– Take care that the microphone is not blocked by your fingers,
etc.
– Good recording results are not possible when the camera is
too far away from what you are trying to record.
Microphone
– Operating camera buttons while shooting can cause button
noise to be picked up in the audio.
• Shooting a very bright subject can cause a vertical band or a pink cast on the
monitor screen image. This does not indicate malfunction.
• When using the camera’s built-in memory or certain types of memory cards, it can
take too much time to record data, which can result in breaks in the image and/or
audio. This condition is indicated by » and Y flashing on the monitor screen. To
avoid loss of movie frames, use of a memory card with a maximum transfer speed
of at least 10MB per second is recommended (page 125).
• Only digital zoom can be used for zooming during movie recording. Since optical
zoom is not possible while recording a movie, zoom as required before pressing
[0] (Movie) to start recording.
• The effects of camera movement in an image become more pronounced when you

Using BEST SHOT
. BEST SHOT Precautions
• Some BEST SHOT scenes cannot be used while recording a movie.
• For YouTube scene cannot be used while shooting a snapshot.
• The Voice Recording scene cannot be used while shooting a snapshot or recording
a movie.
• Some scenes like Night Scene and Fireworks results in a slow shutter speed
setting. Since a slow shutter speed increases the chance of digital noise in the
image, the camera automatically performs a digital noise reduction process when
either of these scenes is selected. This means that it will take a bit longer for the
image to be saved which is indicated by the back lamp flashing green. Do not
perform any key operation during that time. Also, it is a good idea to use a tripod to
avoid image blur due to camera movement when shooting at slow shutter speeds.
• Your camera includes a sample scene that optimizes settings for auction site
images. Depending on your camera model, the sample scene is named either “For
eBay” or “Auction”. Images you record using the auction site sample scene are
stored in a special folder so you can easily find them on your computer (page 104).
• High Sensitivity
– The high sensitivity setting is disabled whenever the camera’s flash fires.
– High sensitivity may not produce the desired results in very dark conditions.
– When shooting with slow shutter speeds, use a tripod to protect against blurring
due to camera movement.
– Under certain lighting conditions, the camera will perform an automatic noise
filtering operation to reduce digital noise in the image. This operation causes the
camera to take longer than normal to save the image and be ready for the next
shot.
• BEST SHOT scene images were not shot using this camera.
• Images shot using a BEST SHOT scene may not produce the results you expected
due to shooting conditions and other factors.
• You can modify the camera settings that are made after you select a BEST SHOT
scene. Note, however, that the BEST SHOT settings revert to their defaults when
you select another BEST SHOT scene or turn off the camera.

• When using a continuous shutter mode, keep the camera still until all recording is
finished.
• The continuous shutter rate depends on the current image size and image quality
settings.
• The speed of Continuous Shutter depends on the type of memory card loaded in
the camera and the amount of free space available for storage. When shooting to
built-in memory, continuous shutter shooting is relatively slow.
• You cannot use the self-timer in combination with Continuous Shutter.

Correcting Image Brightness (EV Shift)
Procedure
[r] (REC) * [SET] * MENU * Quality Tab * EV Shift
You can manually adjust an image’s exposure value (EV value) before shooting it.
• Exposure Compensation Range: –2.0 EV to +2.0 EV
• Unit: 1/3 EV
1.
Use [8] and [2] to adjust the exposure compensation value.
[8] : Increases the EV value. A higher EV
value is best for light-colored subjects
and backlit subjects.
[2] : Decreases the EV value. A lower EV
value is best for dark-color subjects and
for shooting outdoors on a clear day.
To cancel exposure compensation, change the EV value to 0.0.
2.
Press [SET].
This applies the exposure compensation value. The exposure compensation
value you set remains in effect until you change it or turn off the camera (which
causes it to revert to “0.0”).
NOTE
• When shooting under very dark or very bright conditions, you may not be able to
obtain satisfactory results even after performing exposure compensation.

The white balance setting is retained even if you turn off the
camera.
• When “Auto” is selected for the white balance setting, the camera automatically
determines the white point of the subject. Certain subject colors and light source
conditions can cause problems when the camera tries to determine the white point,
which makes proper white balance adjustment impossible. If this happens, select
the white balance setting that matches your shooting conditions (Daylight,
Overcast, etc.).

Tell your print service about your DPOF settings!
If you take a memory card to a professional print service, be sure to tell them that it
includes DPOF settings for the images to be printed and the number of copies. If you
don’t, the print service may print all the images without regard to your DPOF settings,
or they may ignore your date stamp setting.
83
Printing
. Date Stamping
You can use one of the following three methods to include the recording date in the
printout of an image.
Configuring camera settings
Configure DPOF settings (page 82).
You can turn date stamping on and off each time you print. You can configure
settings so some images include the date stamp and some don’t.
Configure the Camera’s Time Stamp setting (page 109).
• The camera’s Time Stamp setting imprints the date into a snapshot when you
shoot it, so the date is always included when you print. It cannot be deleted.
• Do not turn on DPOF date stamping for an image that includes a date
stamped with the camera’s Time Stamp function. Doing so can cause the two
stamps to be overprinted.
Configuring computer settings
You can use commercially available image management software to date
stamp images.
Professional print service
Request date stamping when ordering prints from a professional print service.
. Standards Supported by the Camera
• PictBridge
This is a standard of the Camera and Imaging Products Association
(CIPA).
• Exif Print
Printing on a printer that supports Exif Print uses information
about shooting conditions recorded with the image to enhance
printed image quality. Contact your printer manufacturer for
information about models that support Exif Print, printer upgrades, etc.

The camera creates a file and saves it each time you shoot a snapshot, record a
movie, or perform any other operation that stores data. Files are grouped by storing
them in folders. Each file and folder has its own unique name.
• For details about how folders are organized in memory, see “Memory Folder
Structure” (page 104).
Name and Maximum Number Allowed
Example
Each folder can contain up to 9999 files named
CIMG0001 through CIMG9999. The extension
on the file name depends on the file type.
26th file name:
File
CIM G 0026.JPG
Extension
Serial number (4 digits)
Folders
Folders are named from 100CASIO to
100th folder name:
999CASIO.
100CASIO
There can be up to 900 folders in memory.
• The BEST SHOT (page 52) includes a sample Serial number (3 digits)
scene that optimizes settings for auction site
images. Depending on your camera model,
the sample scene is named either “For eBay”
or “Auction”.
– Images recorded with the eBay scene are
stored in a folder named “100_EBAY”.
– Images recorded with the Auction scene are
stored in a folder named “100_AUCT”.
• BEST SHOT also has a scene named “For
YouTube” that optimizes movie settings for
recording movies for upload to YouTube.
Images recorded with the YouTube scene are
stored in a folder named “100YOUTB”.
• You can view folder and file names on your computer. For details about how file
names are displayed on the camera’s monitor screen, see page 11.
• The total number of folders and files allowed depends on the image size and
quality, and capacity of the memory card being used for storage.
103
Using the Camera with a Computer
Memory Card Data
The camera stores images you shoot in accordance with the Design Rule for Camera
File System (DCF).
. About DCF
The following operations are supported for DCF-compliant images. Note, however,
that CASIO makes no performance guarantees concerning these operations.
• Transferring this camera’s DCF-compliant images to another manufacturer’s
camera and view them.
• Printing this camera’s DCF-compliant images on another manufacturer’s printer.
• Transferring another camera’s DCF-compliant images to this camera and view

Using the Camera with a Computer
. Supported Image Files
• Image files shot with this camera
• DCF-compliant image files
This camera may not be able to display an image, even if it is DCF-compliant. When
displaying an image recorded on another camera, it may take a long time for the
image to appear on this camera’s monitor screen.
. Built-in Memory and Memory Card Data Handling Precautions
• Whenever copying memory contents to your computer, you should copy the DCIM
folder and all of its contents. A good way to keep track of multiple DCIM copies of
the DCIM folders it to change its name to a date or something similar after you copy
it to your computer. If you later decided to return the folder to the camera, however,
be sure to change its name back to DCIM. The camera is designed to recognize
only a root file with the name DCIM. Note the camera also will not be able to
recognize the folders inside the DCIM folder unless they have the names they
originally had when you copied them from the camera to your computer.
• Folders and files must be stored in accordance with the “Memory Folder Structure”
shown on page 104 in order for the camera to be able to recognize them correctly.
• You also can use a PC card adapter or a memory card reader/writer to access
camera files directly from the camera’s memory card.

under normal temperatures. This is due to the characteristics of the battery, not the
camera.
• Charge the battery in an area where the temperature is within the range of 5°C to
35°C (41°F to 95°F). Outside this temperature range charging can take longer than
normal or even fail.
• Do not tear or remove the battery outer label.
• If a battery provides only very limited operation following a full charge, it probably
means the battery has reached the end of its service life. Replace the battery with a
new one.
. Storage Precautions
• Storing the battery for a long time while it is charged can cause deterioration of
battery characteristics. If you do not plan to use a battery for some time, fully use
up its charge before storing it.
• Always remove the battery from the camera when you are not using it. A battery left
in the camera can discharge and go dead, which will require some time to charge
when you need to use the camera.
• Store batteries in a cool, dry place (20°C (68°F) or lower).
• To prevent over discharging of an unused battery, fully charge it, and then load it in
the camera and fully use up the charge about once every six months.
Using the Camera in another Country
. Precautions during Use
• The bundled USB-AC adaptor is designed for operation with any power supply in
the range of 100V to 240V AC, 50/60Hz. Note, however, that the shape of the
power cord plug depends on each country or geographic area. Before taking the
camera and USB-AC adaptor along on a trip, check with travel agent about the
power supply requirements in your destination(s).
• Do not connect the USB-AC adaptor to a power supply through a voltage converter
or similar device. Doing so can lead to malfunction.
. Extra Batteries
• Taking along extra fully charged batteries (NP-120) is recommended while on a trip
in order to avoid not being able to shoot images due to the battery going dead.
123
Appendix
Using a Memory Card
See page 23 for information about supported memory cards and how to load a
memory card.
To replace the memory card
Press the memory card and then release it. This will
cause it to pop out of the memory card slot slightly. Pull
the card out the rest of the way and then insert another
one.
• Never remove a card from the camera while the back
lamp is flashing green. Doing so can cause the image
save operation to fail and even damage the memory
card.
. Using a Memory Card
• SD memory cards, SDHC memory cards, and SDXC
Write enabled
memory cards have a write protect switch. Use the
switch when you need to guard against accidentally
deleting data. Note, however, if you write protect an SD
Write disabled
memory card you must then turn write protection off
whenever you want to record to it, format it, or delete
any of its images.
• If a memory card starts to behave abnormally during image playback, you can
restore normal operation by reformatting it (page 114). However, it is
recommended that you always take along multiple memory cards whenever using
the camera far away from the home or office.
• As you record data to and delete data from a memory card a number of times, it
loses its ability to retain data. Because of this, periodic re-formatting of a memory
card is recommended.
• Electrostatic charge, electrical noise, and other phenomena can cause data to
become corrupted or even lost. Make sure that you always back up important data
on other media (CD-R, CD-RW, hard disk, etc.).

124
Appendix
. Memory Card Handling Precautions
Certain types of memory cards can slow down processing speeds. In particular, you
may experience problems saving high-quality (HD and STD) movies. When using the
camera’s built-in memory or certain types of memory cards, it can take too much time
to record data, which can result in breaks in the image and/or audio. This condition is
indicated by » and Y flashing on the monitor screen. Use of a memory card with a
maximum transfer speed of at least 10MB per second is recommended.
. Discarding or Transferring Ownership of a Memory Card or the
Camera
The format and delete functions of the camera do not actually delete files from the
memory card. The original data remains on the card. Note that responsibility for the
data on a memory card lies with you. The following procedures are recommended
whenever you discard a memory card or the camera, or if you transfer ownership to
another party.
• When discarding a memory card, either physically destroy the memory card or use
commercially available data delete software to completely delete the data on the
memory card.
• When transferring ownership of a memory card to another party, use commercially
available data deletion software to completely delete the data on it.
• Use the format function (page 114) to completely delete the data in built-in memory
before discarding or transferring ownership of the camera.

3)You may be trying to use Auto Focus or ) (Infinity) when
shooting a close-up shot. Use the ´ (Macro) for close ups
(page 57).
There is a vertical
line in the monitor
screen image.
Shooting a very brightly lit subject can cause a vertical band to
appear in the monitor screen image. This is a CCD
phenomenon known as “vertical smear”, and does not indicate
malfunction of the camera. Note that vertical smear is not
recorded with the image in the case of a snapshot, but it is
recorded in the case of a movie.
There is digital
noise in images.
1)Sensitivity may have been increased automatically for a dark
subject, which increases the chance of digital noise. Use a
light or some other means to illuminate the subject.
2)You may be attempting to shoot in a dark location with ?
(Flash Off) selected, which can increase digital noise and
make images appear coarse. In this case, turn on flash (page
39) or use lights for illumination.
3)Shooting with a high ISO sensitivity setting or with the
Lighting feature can cause an increase in digital noise. Use a
light or some other means to illuminate the subject.

*1 Approximate number of shots (CIPA) (Operating Time)
In accordance with CIPA (Camera and Imaging Products Association) standards
Normal temperature (23°C (73°F)), monitor on, zoom operation between full wide and
full telephoto every 30 seconds, during which two images are shot with flash; power
turned off and back on every time 10 images are shot.
*2 Approximate playback time
Standard temperature (23°C (73°F)), one-image scroll approximately every 10 seconds
*3 Approximate time using a 4GB SDHC memory card for a repeated cycle of 10 minutes
recording followed by deletion of the recorded file.
*4 Approximate continuous recording time
• The above values are based a new battery, starting from a full charge. Repeated
charging shortens battery life.
• Frequency of flash, zoom, and Auto Focus usage, and the time the camera is on
greatly affects recording time and number of shots values.
