Please note the following precautions for use:
Please keep this device in a safe place. The device contains a lens that can be damaged by shock.
Keep out of reach from children.
Do not place your device in a wet place. Moisture and water may cause the device to malfunction.
To avoid electric shock, do not touch your device or power cable with wet hands.
Do not use the flash close to another’s eyes. The flash emits a strong light that may cause damage similar to direct
sunlight on one’s eyesight. Particular care should be observed if photographing infants, when the flash should be no less
than 3 feet from your subject.
If the device is not working properly, please consult your nearest dealer or authorized Samsung service centre.
Disassembling the device yourself may cause irrecoverable damage which will be difficult to repair.
Clean the device with a dry, soft cloth. Use a soft cloth moistened with a mild detergent solution for removing stains.
Do not use any type of solvent, especially benzene, as they may seriously damage the finish.
Keep your device away from rain and saltwater. After using, clean the device. Saltwater may cause the parts to corrode.

You can record video files with size of 720i/Normal, 720p/Normal, 352p/Fine, and 352p/Normal in Memory Card but the quality is not guaranteed.
If you record video files with the quality of Normal(352p, 720i, 720p) in the internal memory or a Memory Card, the recording time becomes

✤ The Photo capacity and Voice Record Time is an approximation.
The Photo capacity is subject to change depending on the photo capture screen. The Voice Record Time is also subject to change.
✤ No guarantee can be provided to a Memory Card not formatted on this CAM. Make sure to format a Memory Card on the CAM. (Refer to page 103)
✤ Do not format a Memory Card on a PC.
✤ The recording time and the number of images shown are maximum figures based on using one function.
In actual use, using more than one function will reduce the capacity of each.
✤ If you set the flash on, you can take fewer photos than mentioned the number of images.
✤ While saving in the Memory Card that you have, sometimes recording may stop with the message popping up saying that
<Low speed card. Please record at lower quality.> It is because the writing speed of the Memory Card is slow.
