Inserting the Batteries
• Nickel-Hydrogen Battery (available in
stores)
This is economical because you can
recharge and discharge it, and use it over
and over again. Use a charger (available in
stores) for charging.
The battery may be inert and consequently
it may not supply power immediately after it
is purchased or left unused for more than a
month. In such a case, recharge the battery two or three times before use. The battery self-discharges with time even if the
camera is not used, so recharge it before
use.
If you have already used this camera, follow
the steps below to make sure it is turned off
before removing or loading batteries.
1
1. Make sure the LCD monitor is turned off.
2. Make sure the lens barrier (built-in lens
protection) is closed.
The following batteries can be used in the
camera. Please choose which kind to use
according to your needs.
Indication of the number of images
you can take
• AA Alkaline Batteries (LR6) (included)
You can obtain them anywhere, so they are
convenient for travel.
However, in a low-temperature environment the number of shots you can take will
decrease. Warm the batteries before use.
It is recommended that you use the
rechargeable battery when using the camera for a long time.

*1 The number of shots in the Synchro-Monitor Mode (see P.24)
• Rechargeable Battery (DB-43) (sold separately)
• The number of shots is based on a temperature of 22 degrees Celsius, shooting at
30-second intervals and one out of every
two being shot with the flash. If you set the
camera to the Power-Save mode, the number of shots you can take will increase. In
addition to the batteries, you can use the
AC Adapter (sold separately).
This is a lithium-ion battery. This is economical because you can recharge it using
the battery charger BJ-2 (sold separately)
and use it over and over again. They last a
long time, so they are convenient for travel.
• AA Nickel Batteries (available in stores)
• The number of shots is for reference only.
If the camera is used for long periods od
time for setting and playback, the shooting
time (the number of shots) will decrease.
These batteries are not rechargeable.
However, they last a long time as compared with AA Alkaline Batteries when
used with a digital camera.
12
Using the Batteries
• Other batteries, such as manganese dry
cell (R6) and Ni-Cd, cannot be used.
If you have already used this camera, make
sure it is turned off before loading batteries.

of time.
1.
Open the battery/card cover.
The cover slides open in two steps.
First slide the cover toward the face of
the camera, then lift it to expose the battery compartment.
• The life of an AA alkaline battery (LR6)
depends on the brand and the storage time
from the date of production. In addition, the
life of an alkaline battery becomes shorter
at low temperatures.
• The Nickel-Hydrogen Battery is not factory-charged. Charge it before use. Immediately after the purchase or after a long
storage, the battery may not be charged
fully. Repeat charging and discharging
before use. For details, see the documentation that came with the battery or
charger.
• The battery may become very hot immediately after operation. Turn the camera off
and leave it to cool down sufficiently before
removing the battery.
2.
Insert the two batteries, making
sure they are facing the correct
way.
3.
Close the battery/card cover and
slide it back into place.

Where images are recorded
When no SD memory card is inserted, the
camera records images in the internal memory; when an SD memory card is inserted, it
records images on the memory card.
You can record the still images and movies
you have taken in the camera's internal
memory or on an SD memory card (available
in stores).
When no memory card is
loaded
When a memory card is
loaded
Records to internal memory Records to the SD memory
card
Protecting your images from being
deleted
If you move the SD memory card's write-protection
switch to LOCK, your still
images cannot be accidentally erased, and the
memory card cannot be
formatted. If you return
the switch to the former
position, it is once again possible to erase
images and format the card. It is recommended to switch to LOCK after recording
important images.
• When an SD memory card is loaded, no
data is recorded in the internal memory
even after the SD memory card becomes
full.
• Take care not to get any dirt on the SD
Memory Card's metal parts.
Note that you cannot shoot images in the
LOCK state because no data can be
recorded on the card. Unlock the card when
shooting.
Inserting the SD Memory Card
If you have already used this camera, make
sure it is turned off before loading an SD
memory card.
1.
The internal memory capacity is 16MB.
Open the battery/card cover.
The cover slides open in two steps.
First slide the cover toward the face of
the camera, then lift it to expose the battery compartment.
• For the number of images that can be
stored on an SD memory card, see P.162.
• For how to format an SD memory card, see
.P.112.

In Synchro Monitor mode, the LCD monitor is kept off (no display) except during the following
camera operations. This mode is effective for saving power consumption.
Half-press the shutter button.
The LCD Monitor is tuned on and you can confirm composition. After you finish shooting with Full-Press,
the LCD Monitor will automatically turn off.
Press the Q (Quick Review)

Press the M button.
The LCD Monitor Display is turned on and you can make various settings for shooting (see P.27). By
pressing the M button again, you can turn the LCD Monitor off.
ADJ. Button.
The LCD Monitor Display is turned on and you can make settings for exposure control, white balance, and
ISO sensitivity (see P.60, P.62, and P.65). Pressing the O button turns the LCD Monitor off.
Histogram Display
When histogram display is on, a histogram appears in the lower right corner on the LCD monitor screen.
A histogram is a graph indicating the number of pixels on the vertical axis and the brightness on
the horizontal axis. The brightness is shadow (dark), halftone, and highlight (light) from the left.
By using the histogram, you can judge the brightness of an image without being affected by the
brightness around the LCD monitor. This also helps preventing voids and solids.
If the histogram has only peaks on the right side without anything
else, this picture is over-exposed with too many pixels only for highlight sections.
If the histogram has only peaks on the left side without anything else,
this picture is under-exposed with too many pixels only for shadow
sections.
Correct the exposure to an appropriate level.
For details about exposure correction, see P.60.
• The histogram displayed on the LCD monitor is for reference only. Depending on the shooting condition (flashing is required, the surrounding light is dark, and so on), the exposure level indicated in
the histogram may not correspond to the brightness of the shot image.
• Exposure compensation has its limitation. It does not necessarily achieve the best possible result.
• The histogram having peaks in the center part does not necessarily provide the best result to suit
your particular requirements.
For example, an adjustment is required if you want to intentionally achieve under or over exposure.

Basic Shooting
The basics of shooting are explained here, from how to
hold your camera to how to shoot still images and movies.
2
How to Hold the Camera
How to Focus
If the camera moves when you press the
shutter button, the still image might not come
out clearly (due to camera shake). The
mark displayed on the LCD monitor indicates
that camera shake should be avoided under
the current shooting condition. Hold the camera as illustrated below for best results.
The area displayed on the LCD Monitor is
shot as a still image or a movie.
1.
2.
When adjusting focus, press the shutter button halfway (half-press).
To adjust focus, follow the steps below.
Hold the camera with both
hands and lightly press both
elbows against your body.
Put your finger on the shutter
button.
1.
Point the lens toward the subject you want to shoot.
2.
Compose the picture on the LCD
Monitor.
3.
The focus is set at the center of
the screen, so use the screen to
center your subject.
4.
Half-press the shutter button.
The f-stop (aperture size) and shutter
speed are displayed in the bottom part of
the screen, and the camera focuses.
Once the shot is in focus, the exposure
and white balance are fixed and the
crosshair in the center of the LCD Monitor turns green, as does the auto-focus
lamp in the lower left of the Viewfinder.
Check one of these to make sure the
subject is in focus.
• Be careful when you are shooting not to
get a finger, your hair, or the strap in front
of the lens or the flash.
• To prevent camera shake, hold the camera
securely with both hands when you shoot
or use a tripod.
• Consider using a tripod to prevent camera
shake in the following situations:
• When shooting in a dark place, if you do not
use the flash or if you use the Slow Synchro
mode.
• When you shoot with the zoom.
36
If the camera cannot automatically focus,
the crosshairs in the center of the LCD
monitor turn red and the auto-focus lamp
in the lower left of the viewfinder blinks in
green.
ing on the shooting distance. To check the
focusing or the shooting range accurately
before shooting, please use the LCD monitor.

• When the grid appears, the crosshairs do
not appear in the middle of the LCD monitor. With the auto focus lamp, check that
the shot is in focus.
• There is another shooting method, which is
to fully press the shutter once, without
using the half-press method. Full-press
shooting is good for capturing the moment.
However, you cannot check that your shot
is in focus while shooting. (see P.39)
• You can use the battery for a longer period
of time by using the viewfinder and shooting in power-save mode (see P.118). In this
mode, however, you cannot check the
focus on the LCD monitor. Instead,
observe the auto focus lamp (in the lower
left of the viewfinder), which lights up in
green when the shot is in focus. The range
visible through the viewfinder and that
being shot may deviate a little bit, depend37
Shooting Still Images
3.
When taking still images, Shooting Mode is
usually used.
2
Put the subject of your photo
right in the center and press the
shutter button half-way.
There are two methods of using the shutter
button, pressing the shutter in two stages
(half-press) and pressing it all the way down
at once (full-press).
When you use half-press, you can confirm
that your shot is in focus on the LCD Monitor.
When you want to capture the moment, fullpress is convenient.
The f-stop (aperture size) and shutter
speed are displayed in the bottom part of
the screen, and the camera focuses.
Once the shot is in focus, the exposure
and white balance are fixed and the
crosshair in the center of the LCD Monitor turns green, as does the auto-focus
lamp in the lower left of the Viewfinder.
Check one of these to make sure the
subject is in focus.
• When shooting in Aperture Priority/Manual
Exposure Mode, the f-number (aperture
value) and shutter speed remain displayed
in the bottom part on the screen. According
to the f-number, the shutter speed is determined for shooting.
• In Aperture Priority/Manual Exposure
Mode, you can also set the shutter speed
manually for shooting (Manual Exposure
Mode).
4.
Gently press the shutter button
all the way.
The still image you have taken freezes
for a moment on the LCD Monitor and is
recorded.
• For how to shoot with Zoom, see P.46
• For how to shoot Close-ups, see P.48.
• For how to shoot with Aperture Priority/
Manual Exposure Mode, see P.55.
Checking the Focus and Shooting
(Half-press)
1.
2.
Turn the mode dial to 5 (Shooting Mode) or A/M (Aperture Priority/Manual Exposure Mode).
• To prevent blurring, press the shutter
release button gently.
Compose your shot either by
looking through the Viewfinder
or at the LCD Monitor.
• The
mark indicates that blurring may

Capturing the Moment Shooting
(Full-press)
1.
Turn the mode dial to 5 (Shooting Mode) or A/M (Aperture Priority/Manual Exposure Mode).
2.
Compose your shot either by
looking through the Viewfinder
or at the LCD Monitor.
3.
If it is difficult to focus the camera, see P.36.
2
Put the subject of your photo
right in the center and press the
shutter button all the way.
After the camera focuses automatically,
the still image is taken and recorded.
Certain subjects are hard to bring into
focus:
It may be impossible to bring the following
subjects into focus.
• Subjects lacking contrast (the sky, a white
wall, the hood of a car, etc.)
• Flat two-dimensional objects with only horizontal lines and no significant protrusions.
• Quickly moving objects.
• Things in poorly lit places.
• Areas with strong backlighting, or reflections.
• Things that flicker, such as fluorescent lights.
When you want to shoot subjects like this,
first focus on an object the same distance as
your subject and then shoot. (see P.40)
If you find it difficult to focus the camera, it is
recommended to half press the shutter
release button before shooting. Depending
on the circumstances, also use the flash and
focus lock.
39
When the Subject is not
Centered on Your Composition (Focus Lock)
2
The f-stop (aperture size) and shutter
speed are displayed in the bottom part of
the screen, and the camera focuses.
When the subject of your composition is not
centered, you can compose your picture after
setting the focus and then shoot. This
method is called "Focus-Lock."
Example: Taking a photograph of the castle
in the background with the camera focused
on a person in front.
Shooting range
Once the shot is in focus, the exposure
and white balance are fixed and the
crosshair in the center of the LCD Monitor turns green, as does the auto-focus
lamp in the lower left of the Viewfinder.
Check one of these to make sure the
subject is in focus.
2.
With the shutter half-pressed,
compose your shot.
4.
Gently press the shutter button

Using the Flash
3
If you press the F (Flash) button, you can
switch into Flash Mode (Flash, Flash Off, and
other settings). Switch settings according to
time, conditions and your preference, and
shoot your pictures.
• By default, your camera is set to Flash Off.
From the front edge of the lens, flashlight
reaches about 0.2 to 5.0 m (W) or about 0.15
to 2.9 m (T) when ISO sensitivity is set to
AUTO.
• When the camera is set to Flash Off or
Slow Synchro Mode, the shutter speed is
slowed, so the camera is subject to camera shake. Hold the camera firmly with
both hands and shoot.
• The settings are saved until you press the
F (Flash) button to change them.
• When shooting movies or in Multi-Shot
mode, the setting becomes Flash Off.
You can check your Flash Mode setting by
the symbol displayed on the upper left of the
LCD Monitor.
• When in LANDSCAPE of Scene Mode, the
flash setting is fixed to Flash Off.
• When in NIGHTSCAPE of Scene Mode,
Forced Flash cannot be selected. Also, the
initial setting value is Auto.
Flash Mode Types
Symbol
Mode Name
Description
Flash Off
The flash will not fire. Use when
shooting where the use of flash is
prohibited or when shooting with
indoor lighting.
Auto
When your subject is poorly lit or
backlit, the flash fires automatically.
Red-eye
reduction
When shooting images of people,
the red-eye phenomenon, in which
people's eyes appear red, is
reduced.
Forced Flash
The flash fires, whatever the light
conditions are, when you shoot.
Use when there is backlighting
when shooting outside in daylight.
Slow Synchro
The flash fires with the shutter
speed slowed.
Use when shooting images of people against a nightscape.
• If you press the flash button, even while
the flash is charging, you can return to
Flash Off mode. If you do this, flash charging is cancelled.
• If the flash is switched to off, the AF auxiliary lamp to improve focusing in a dark
place does not flash.
To switch to Flash Mode, follow the steps
below.
1.
Turn the mode dial to 5 (Shooting Mode) or A/M (Aperture Priority/Manual Exposure Mode).
Alternatively, turn the Mode Dial to
4 (Scene Mode), and select a
scene to have the camera ready.
2.
Pressing the F (Flash) button
switches to Flash Mode.
The Flash mode mark appears momentarily in a large size at the center of the
LCD monitor and then is displayed at the
upper left.
Slow Synchronized
When you shoot pictures in dark places and
want to capture background as well, use this
mode, which slows shutter speed and sets
the flash to Flash Off.
Red-Eye
If you shoot with the F (flash) in a dark place,
people's eyes will appear red. This is called
the "red-eye" phenomenon.
52
4.
The flash starts recharging. While the
flash is charging, the LCD Monitor goes
off and the flash lamp blinks. Once
charging is complete, the lamp goes off
and it is possible to shoot.
Turn the external flash on, set
the flash to Auto, and adjust the
f-number and ISO sensitivity of
the flash to those of the camera.
When removing the external flash from
the camera, first turn the external flash
off.
How to use the hot shoe
Since the camera has a hot shoe, you can
connect an external flash (available in stores)
for use.
• Exposure may not be appropriate even
when the f-number and ISO sensitivity of
the external flash are the same as those of
the camera. If so, change the f-number
and ISO sensitivity of the flash.
• A flash on the market rarely have an X
contact of the opposite polarity. This kind of
flash may not only work but also cause a
problem to the camera. For the terminal
specifications, contact the manufacturer of
the external flash.
• Use an external flash of a lighting angle
covering the angle of view of the shooting
lens.
• By interlock with the internal flash, signals
are issued to the hot shoe.
• Use an external flash basically at a distance where the internal flash is not adequate (long distance). Shooting at a short
distance may end in over-exposure.
• The internal flash lights up with the external
flash.
• Adjust the exposure using the exposure
compensation (P.60) or manual exposure
function (P.55).
• Do not use an external flash having a special signal pin. Using such a flash may
cause inappropriate exposure or damage
of the camera circuit.
• For details, see the documentation that
came with the external flash.
To attach an external flash to the hot shoe,
follow the steps below.
1.
With the camera and external
flash powers off, attach the
external flash to the hot shoe.
2.
Turn the camera power on and
the Mode Dial to A/M for Aperture Priority Mode (P.55).
3.
Set the ISO sensitivity of the
camera to other than AUTO.

Using the Self-Timer
3
• Each press of the T (Self-timer) button, it
selects a function in the following
sequence: 10 sec, 2 sec, Self-timer Off, 10
sec, 2 sec...
You can set the Self-timer to shoot after
either two or ten seconds. If the person who
takes the photo wants to be in the still image
as well, it is convenient to use a setting of ten
seconds; a setting of two seconds is useful
for preventing camera shake. Attach a tripod
securely to the tripod mount on the bottom of
the camera.
• Self-timer settings are released when the
power is turned off.
• Pressing the T (Self-timer) button may
clear the display on the LCD monitor in
order to recharge the flash.
To shoot with the Self-timer, follow the steps
below.
1.
• When the self-timer is set to 2 seconds, the
flash for self-timer does not fire.
Turn the mode dial to 5 (Shooting Mode) or A/M (Aperture Priority/Manual Exposure Mode).
Alternatively, turn the Mode Dial to
4 (Scene Mode), and select a
scene to have the camera ready.
2.
Press the T (Self-timer) button.
The Self Timer mark appears momentarily in a large size at the center of the
LCD monitor and then is displayed at the
upper left.
The "10" to the right of the symbol indicates the number of seconds. In this
case, if you press the shutter button, the
camera will shoot after 10 seconds.
3.
Press the shutter button.
The flash begins to blink and the Selftimer starts. After about ten seconds the
camera takes the picture. About two seconds before it shoots, the time interval
between blinks begins to shorten and the
audio tone begins to beep.
After shooting, Self-timer mode switches
off.

Shooting in Aperture
Priority/Manual Exposure Mode
Shooting with Set Aperture (Aperture Priority Mode)
To shoot with a set aperture, follow the steps
below.
Using the up/down dial
When the mode dial is set to Aperture Priority
Mode, you can set the aperture and shutter
speed manually for shooting.

(Aperture Priority Mode). I
f the shutter speed is also set, you can take
pictures with the shutter speed and the aperture set at the time of shutter speed setting
(Manual Exposure Mode).
The aperture can be selected from Open,
Half, and Minimum.
The shutter speed can be selected from 1/
2000, 1/1000, 1/500, 1/250, 1/125, 1/30, 1/
15, 1/ 8, 1/4, 1/2, 1, 2, 4, 8, 15, and 30 seconds.
Lowering the aperture value (f-number) blurs
the background and highlights the object.
Increasing the aperture value makes the
focus clear for both near and far objects.
Increasing the shutter speed allows you to
take a picture as if a quick-moving object
were stopped momentarily. Lowering the
shutter speed allows you to shoot the track of

About the Direct Print
Function
Sending Images to a
Printer for Printing
The Direct Print standard enables direct
printing from a camera to a printer, by connecting them via a USB cable. Photos can be
printed quickly and easily from your digital
camera without using a computer.
You can send images from the camera to a
PictBridge compliant printer to print them.
Images are sent from the internal memory
when no SD memory card is loaded or from
an SD memory card when one is installed.
The following three kinds of direct printing
are supported:

You cannot print movies (.AVI) with this function. For still images with sounds (.JPG and
.WAV), only the still images (.JPG) are
printed.
• Printing all images from the camera (P.100)
• Printing several selected images (P.101)
When printing multiple images, you can print
any of them as many times as specified on
one sheet.
• This camera uses PictBridge, an industry
standard for Direct Printing.
• Your printer must be PictBridge compliant
to use the Direct Print function. For support
information, see the documentation that
came with the printer.
The USB cable connects the camera

F. Using Your Camera Abroad
The AC Adapter (Model AC-4a)
• Can be used in regions with a current of 120V, 50Hz/60Hz.
• If you are going to travel to a country that uses a different shaped wall outlet/plug, please consult your travel agent on a plug Adapter
suitable for wall outlets in your country of destination.
The Warranty
• This product is for domestic use. The warranty is only valid domestically.
• In the unlikely event that a failure or breakdown should occur while abroad, please be aware there is no after-sales service or compensation for repairs.
Using Playback on Television in other Regions
• Playback is possible on televisions (or monitors) equipped with a video input terminal. Please use the video cable provided.
• This camera is compatible with both NTSC and PAL television formats. Switch the video format on the camera to match the television
environment in the region.
• When you go overseas, set your camera to the local video format.
G. Cautions on Use
• Be sure not to drop or apply any sudden force to the camera.
• Firing the flash consecutively may heat the firing unit. Do not fire it consecutively more than
necessary.
• Do not fire the flash near eyes, or view the sun or other strong light directly through the viewfinder. It could cause visual impairment (particularly for infants).
• Do not fire the flash near the driver of a vehicle to avoid causing accidents.
• The batteries may become hot after extended use. Touching the batteries immediately after
use could result in burns to your fingers.
• If the LCD monitor or panel is exposed to sunlight, they may become washed out and images
may become hard to view.
• The LCD monitor and panel may contain some pixels that do not remain lit up continually in
part or at all. Also, the brightness may become uneven because of the characteristics of
LCDs. These are not failures.
• While you are carrying the camera, be careful not to hit it against other objects.
• In an environment where the temperature changes suddenly, condensation may occur in the
camera, resulting in troubles such as fogging of the glass surface or malfunctions of the camera. If this occurs, place the camera in a bag to slow the temperature change as much as possible. Take it out of the bag after the temperature difference from the atmosphere has
decreased to a fairly small amount.
Conditions in which condensation may easily occur:
• When the camera is moved to an environment where the temperature differs greatly.
• In humid places
• In a room immediately after being heated, or when the camera is exposed directly to cooled air
from an air-conditioner or another similar appliance
176
H. Care and Storage
Care
• Please note that if fingerprints, dirt, etc. get onto the lens, picture quality will suffer.
• When dust or dirt does get on the lens, do not touch it directly with your fingers, and either use
a blower (available in stores) to blow it off, or a soft cloth to gently dust it off.
• After use at the beach or around chemicals, wipe it off particularly carefully.
• In the unlikely event that your camera fails to work properly, please consult your Ricoh Repair
Center.
• There are high voltage circuits in this camera. As this is dangerous, do not dismantle this camera under any circumstances.
• Do not get volatile substances, such as thinner, benzene, or pesticides on your camera. This
may cause a change in quality, paint to peel, etc.
• As the surface of the LCD Monitor is easily scratched, do not rub hard objects against it.
• Please clean the surface of the LCD Monitor with solvents available on the market specially
for cleaning LCD display surfaces. Gently wipe with a soft cloth dampened with a little cleaner.
Storage
• Please avoid storing your camera in the following kinds of places, as breakdown may result.
In high heat and humidity, or where there is severe change in temperature or humidity.
Places with a lot of dust, dirt or sand.
Places with severe vibration.
In places of direct contact with vinyl products, rubber or chemicals, such as insect repellent,
etc.
Places with strong magnetic fields (monitors, next to strong magnets, etc.).
• If you are using a battery or batteries, remove them if you are not going to use the camera for
a long period of time.
