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 test shots
Before shooting your final image, shoot a test shot to ensure that the camera is
recording correctly.

Snapshot Shooting Precautions
Operation
• If unwanted light is shining 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 in accordance with the currently selected recording mode
(page 39).
36
Quick Start Basics
Shooting Indoors under Fluorescent Lighting
• Minute flickering of fluorescent lighting can affect the brightness or color of an
image.
Other Precautions
• The slower the shutter speed, the greater the possibility that noticeable noise will
be generated in an image. Because of this, the camera automatically performs a
noise reduction at slow shutter speeds. The noise reduction process causes it to
take longer to record images at lower shutter speeds. The shutter speeds for which
noise reduction is performed depend on the camera setup and shooting conditions.
• A noise reduction process is performed when ISO sensitivity is set to a high value.
This can cause the camera to take relatively longer to be ready to shoot again after
you press the shutter button. Do not perform any operation while the image
recording operation is in progress.
• Due to the characteristics of the imaging element used by the camera, very fast
moving objects in an image may appear distorted.
. 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 67).

Minimizing the Effects of Camera Movement during Movie Recording
You can configure the camera to minimize the effects of camera movement during
Full HD and HD movie recording. Note, however, that this does not prevent image
blur due to subject movement.
High Speed Movie Recording Precautions
• When shooting a high speed movie, shoot in a well-lit environment.
• When recording a high speed movie, light source flicker can cause horizontal
bands to appear in the image. This does not indicate malfunction of the camera.
48
Recording Images
IMPORTANT!
• 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 may automatically adjust its monitor screen brightness in order to reduce
heat generation.
• The camera also records audio along with Full HD and HD
movies. Note the following points when shooting a movie.
– Take care that the microphone is not blocked by your
fingers, etc.
– Good audio recording results are not possible when the
camera is too far away from what you are trying to
Microphone
record.
• Shooting movies for long periods in areas where
temperature is relatively high can cause digital noise (dots of light) to appear in the
movie image. A rise in the camera’s internal temperature also may force movie
recording to stop automatically. If this happens, stop recording and allow the
camera to cool down, which should cause normal operation to resume.
• Using the camera’s built-in memory or certain types of memory cards can slow
down processing speed. Whenever possible use an Ultra High-Speed Type
memory card. Note, however, that not all operations can be guaranteed even if an
Ultra High-Speed Type memory card is used. Certain movie quality settings can
result in too much time being required to record data, which can result in breaks in
the image and/or audio during playback. If this happens, the movie icon will turn
yellow on the monitor screen.
NOTE
• Except for High Speed Movie, zoom operations are supported during movie
recording (page 44). Zoom is disabled during high speed movie recording. If you
want to use zoom, perform the zoom operation before you touch “b” (Movie) to
start recording.
• SR Zoom (page 44) is disabled during movie recording.
• The effects of camera movement in an image become more pronounced when you
shoot close up or with a large zoom factor. Because of this, stabilizing the camera
by placing it on a level surface, etc. is recommended.
• During High Speed Movie recording, focus is fixed at the position where it was
when recording started. To focus an image, half-press the shutter button for Auto
Focus before you touch “b” (Movie) to start recording.

. Pixels and image size
A digital camera image is a collection of small
Pixel
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.
The size of an image indicates how many
pixels it contains, and is expressed as horizontal pixelsxvertical pixels.
Example:
Image size
pixels
12M
4000x3000 (Approximately 12 million pixels)
5M
2560x1920 (Approximately 5 million pixels)
• Note that larger images have more pixels, so they take up more memory space.
• For information about image size and number of images that can be stored, see

Using the Camera with a Computer
Files and Folders
The camera creates a file 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 102).
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
999CASIO.
There can be up to 900 folders in memory.
100th folder name:
100CASIO
Serial number (3 digits)
• 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 10.
• 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.
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,

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 folders it to
change their names to dates or something similar after you copy them to your
computer. If you later decided to return a DCIM 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 102 in order for the camera to be able to recognize them correctly.

Power Supply
Charging
. If the camera’s back lamp starts flashing red...
If the back lamp starts flashing red during charging, it means that further charging is
not possible for one of the reasons below. Perform the actions described below to
correct the problem and then try charging again.
Ambient temperature or the temperature of the battery is abnormally high
or low
Unplug the USB cable from the camera and wait for a while until the camera is within
the temperature range of 15°C to 35°C (59°F to 95°F), and then try charging again.
Safety timer activated
A battery that has not been used for a long time, certain types of computers, and
connection conditions can cause charging to take longer than normal. If charging
takes longer than about five hours, a safety timer will terminate it automatically, even
if the battery is not fully charged. If the battery has not been used for a very long time,
charging may terminate automatically after only about 60 minutes.
1) Using a battery that has not been used for a long time.
Disconnect and then reconnect the USB cable to resume charging.
2) Insufficient power supply when connected to computer
The camera can be charged only via a USB 2.0 standard USB port. Connect
directly to a USB port what supplies a current of 500mA.
For details about the power supply capacity of a computer’s USB port, contact the
manufacturer of the computer. Though disconnecting and then reconnecting the USB
cable will resume charging, you may need to do so repeatedly if the power supply
capacity of the computer is low.
If problems persist after you perform the above steps or if the battery fails to
charge after 5 hours, it could mean that the battery is faulty. Contact your nearest
CASIO authorized service center.
121
Appendix
Battery Precautions
. Precautions during Use
• Operation provided by a battery under cold conditions is always less than operation
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 15°C to
35°C (59°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 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-150) is recommended while on a trip
in order to avoid not being able to shoot images due to the battery going dead.
122
Appendix
Using a Memory Card
See page 27 for information about supported memory cards and how to load a
memory card.
. Using a Memory Card
• If a memory card starts to behave abnormally during image playback, you can
restore normal operation by reformatting it (page 109). 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.).
. Memory Card Handling Precautions
Certain types of memory cards can slow down processing speed. Whenever possible
use an Ultra High-Speed Type memory card. Note, however, that not all operations
can be guaranteed even if an Ultra High-Speed Type memory card is used. Certain
movie quality settings can result in too much time being required to record data,
which can result in breaks in the image and/or audio during playback. If this happens,
the movie icon will turn yellow on the monitor screen.

Problem
Possible Cause and Recommended Action
Images cannot be
transferred over a
USB connection.
1)The USB cable may not be connected securely. Check all
connections.
2)If the camera is not turned on, turn it on.
3)Your computer may not be able to recognize the camera if
you connect via a USB hub. Always connect directly to the
computer’s USB port.
Language selection
screen appears
when the camera is
turned on.
1)You did not configure initial settings after purchasing the
camera or the camera may have been left with a dead
battery. Check the camera setup (pages 25, 106).
2)There may be a problem with the camera’s memory data. If
this is the case, perform the reset operation to initialize the
camera’s setup (page 109). After that, configure each
setting. If the language selection screen does not re-appear
when you turn the camera on, it means that the camera’s
memory management data has been restored.
If the same message appears after you turn power back on,
contact your retailer or a CASIO authorized service center.
There are various
indicators and
values on the
monitor screen.
The monitor screen shows indicators and other information
about shooting conditions and the image you are recording.
You can touch the tab and then touch the “DISP” to select what
information you want to include on the display (page 9).
The time and date
settings configured
the first time after
purchasing the
camera are reset to
their factory defaults
when I remove the
camera’s battery.
Load the camera’s battery and reconfigure the time and date
settings (page 25). Do not remove the battery from the camera
for at least 24 hours after configuring time and date settings.
After that, the settings will not be reset if you remove the
battery.
• If the time and date are reset to their factory default settings
when you remove the battery after it has been loaded for
more than 24 hours, it could mean that the camera’s setting
memory is defective. Contact your retailer or a CASIO
authorized service center.
Buttons are not
responsive right
after the power has
been turned on.
With large capacity memory cards there is a delay after the
power has been turned on before the buttons become
responsive.
