Instructions on how to use the memory card
Maintenance of the memory card
Be sure to format the memory card (see p. 67) if you are using a newly purchased memory
for the first time, if it contains data that the camera cannot recognize, or if it contains images
captured with a different camera.
Turn off the camera power whenever the memory card is being inserted or removed.
Repeated use of the memory card will eventually reduce the memory card’s performance.
Should this be the case, you will need to purchase a new memory card.
Wear and tear on the memory card is not covered by the Samsung warranty.
The memory card is an electronic precision device.
Do not bend, drop or subject the memory card to any heavy impact.
Do not store the memory card in an environment with strong electronic or magnetic fields,
e.g. near loud speakers or TV receivers.
Please do not use or store in an environment where there are extremes in temperature.
Do not allow the memory card to become dirty or to come into contact with any liquid.
Should this happen, clean the memory card with a soft cloth.
Please keep the memory card in its case when not in use.
During and after periods of extended use, you may notice that the memory card is warm.
This is perfectly normal.
Do not use a memory card that is used in another digital camera or memory card reader.
Do not use a memory card formatted by another digital camera or memory card reader.
Preserving the memory card data
If the memory card is subjected to any of the following, the recorded data may become
corrupted :
- When the memory card is used incorrectly.
- If the power is switched off or the memory card is removed while recording, deleting
(formatting) or reading.
Samsung cannot be held responsible for lost data.
It is advisable to copy important data onto other media as back-up e.g. floppy disks, hard
disks, CD etc.
If there is insufficient memory available : If you press the shutter button for the shot, a [CARD
FULL !] message will appear and the camera will not operate. To optimize the amount of
memory in the camera, replace the memory card or delete unnecessary images stored on
the memory.

Important notes
Be sure to observe the following precautions!
This unit contains precision electronic components. Do not use or store this unit in the
following locations.
- Areas exposed to severe changes in temperature and humidity.
- Areas exposed to dust and dirt.
- Areas exposed to direct sunlight or the inside of a vehicle in hot weather.
- Environments where there is high magnetism or excessive vibration.
- Areas with high explosives or highly flammable materials.
Do not let the unit come into contact with dust, vinyl goods, or chemicals, such as
insecticides, for an extended period of time.
Sand can be particularly troublesome to cameras.
- Do not let sand get inside the unit when using it on beaches, coastal dunes, or other areas
where there is lots of sand.
- Doing so may result in failure or may permanently render the unit unusable.
Extremes in temperature may cause problems.
- If the camera is transferred from a cold to a warm and humid environment, condensation
can form on the delicate electronic circuitry. If this occurs, turn the camera off and wait for at
least 1 hour until all moisture is dispersed. Moisture build up can also occur in the memory
card. If this happens, turn off the camera and remove the memory card. Wait until the
moisture has dispersed.
Caution on Using the Lens
- If the lens is subjected to direct sunlight, it could result in discoloration and deterioration of
the image sensor.
- Pay attention not to get fingerprints or foreign substances on the surface of the lens.
If the digital camera is not used for a long period, an electric discharge can occur.
It is a good idea to remove the batteries and the memory card if you do not intend using the
camera for an extended period of time.

Important notes
If the camera is exposed to an electronic interference, it will turn itself off to protect the
memory card.
Camera Maintenance
- Use a soft brush (available from photo stores) to gently clean the lens and LCD assemblies.
If this does not work, lens-cleaning paper with lens cleaning fluid can be used.
Clean the camera body with a soft cloth. Do not allow this camera to come into contact with
solvent materials such as benzol, insecticide, thinners etc. This may damage the body shell
of the camera and also affect its performance. Rough handling can damage the LCD
monitor. Take care to avoid damage and keep the camera in its protective carry case at all
times when not in use.
Do not attempt to disassemble or modify the camera.
Under certain conditions, static electricity can cause the flash unit to fire. This is not harmful to
the camera and is not a malfunction.
When images are uploaded or downloaded, the data transfer may be affected by static
electricity. In this case, disconnect and re-connect the USB cable before trying the transfer
again.
