Usage Tips
If the camera does not work as intended, or if
an error message is displayed on the screen,
and you are unsure of what to do, refer to the
information below to fix the problem(s).
Troubleshooting
Battery
“The camera does not work even when
batteries are installed”.
● Insert recharged batteries in the correct direction.
“Inserting the battery and the SD/SDHC memory
card (sold separately)” (p. 10), “Charging the
camera battery” (p. 11), “Charging the battery with
the supplied USB-AC adapter” (p. 12)
● Battery performance may have been reduced
temporarily due to low temperature. Take the
batteries out of the camera, and warm them by
putting them in your pocket for a while.
Card/Internal memory
● With prolonged camera use, the internal
temperature may increase, resulting in automatic
shutdown. If this occurs, remove the battery
from the camera and wait until the camera
has sufficiently cooled. The camera’s external
temperature may also increase during use,
however this is normal and does not indicate
malfunction.
Monitor
“Difficult to see”.
● Condensation*1 may have occurred. Turn off the
power, and wait for the camera body to become
acclimated to the surrounding temperature and dry
out before taking pictures.
*1
Dew drops can form in the camera when it is
suddenly taken from a cold location into a warm,
humid room.
“Vertical lines appear on the screen”.
● This condition may occur when the camera is
pointed at an extremely bright subject under a
clear sky and so on. The lines do not appear,
however, in the final image.
“An error message is displayed”.
“Error message” (p. 43)
Shutter button
“No picture is taken when the shutter
button is pressed”.
● Cancel sleep mode.
To save battery power, the camera automatically
goes into sleep mode and the monitor turns off
if there is no operation for 3 minutes when the
camera is turned on. No picture is taken even if
the shutter button is fully pressed in this mode.
Operate the zoom buttons or other buttons to
restore the camera from sleep mode before
taking a picture. If the camera is left for another
12 minutes, it automatically turns off. Press the
n button to turn the camera on.
● Press the q button to switch to the shooting
“The light is caught in the picture”.
● Shooting with flash in dark situations results in
an image with many flash reflections on dust in
the air.
Date and time function
“Date and time settings return to the
default setting”.
● If the batteries are removed and left out of the
camera for about a day*2, the date and time
settings return to the default setting, and must
be reset.
*2
The time until the date and time settings return
to the default setting varies depending on how
long the batteries have been loaded.
“Setting the date, time and time zone” (p. 12)
mode.
● Wait until #(flash charge) stops blinking before
taking pictures.
Miscellaneous
“The camera makes a noise when taking
pictures”.
● The camera may activate the lens and make a
noise even if no operation is performed. This
is because the camera automatically performs
actions of auto focus as far as it is ready to shoot.

Shooting tips
When you are unsure of how to take a picture
that you envision, refer to the information below.
Fast-moving object
Focusing
“Focusing on the subject”
● Taking a picture of a subject not in the center
The subject is not in the center
of the frame
of the screen
After focusing on an object at the same distance
as the subject, compose the shot, and take the
picture.
Camera shake
Pressing the shutter button halfway (p. 14)
● Set [AF MODE] (p. 28) to [FACE/iESP]
● Taking a picture in [AF TRACKING] mode
(p. 28)
The camera tracks the subject movement
automatically to focus on it continuously.
● Taking a picture of subjects where autofocus
is difficult
In the following cases, after focusing on an object
(by pressing the shutter button halfway down) with
high contrast at the same distance as the subject,
compose the shot, and take the picture.
“Taking pictures without camera shake”
● Taking pictures using N mode (p. 20)
(FE-4030)
● Taking pictures using [IMAGE STABILIZER]
(p. 28) (FE-5030/X-960)
● Select C (SPORT) in s mode (p. 20)
The C (SPORT) mode uses a fast shutter speed
and can reduce the blur incurred by a moving
subject.
● Taking pictures at a high ISO sensitivity
If a high ISO sensitivity is selected, pictures can
be taken at a high shutter speed even at locations
where a flash cannot be used.
Subjects with low contrast
“Selecting the ISO sensitivity” (p. 25)
Exposure (brightness)
When extremely bright objects
appear in the center of the
screen
“Taking pictures with the right
brightness”
● Taking pictures using [FILL IN] (p. 23) flash
A subject against backlight is brightened.
● Taking pictures using exposure compensation
(p. 24)
Object with no vertical lines*1
*1
It is also effective to compose the shot by holding the
camera vertically to focus, and then returning to the
horizontal position to take the picture.
When objects are at different
distances
44
EN
Adjust the brightness while viewing the screen
for taking the picture. Normally, taking pictures of
white subjects (such as snow) results in images
that are darker than the actual subject. Use the
exposure compensation to adjust in the positive
(+) direction to express whites as they appear.
When taking pictures of black subjects, on the
other hand, it is effective to adjust in the negative
(-) direction.
Color hue
“Taking pictures with colors at the same
shade as they appear”
● Taking pictures by selecting white balance
(p. 25)
Best results in most environments can normally
be obtained with the [WB AUTO] setting, but for
some subjects, you should try experimenting
with different settings. (This is especially true for
sunshade under a clear sky, mixed natural and
artificial light settings, and so on.)
Playback/Editing tips
Playback
“Playing images in the internal memory
and card”
● Remove the card when playing pictures in the
internal memory
“Inserting the battery and the SD/SDHC memory
card (sold separately)” (p. 10)
Editing
Image quality
“Taking sharper pictures”
“Erasing the sound recorded to a still
image”
● Taking pictures with the optical zoom
● Record over the sound with silence when
Avoid using digital zoom (p. 16) to take pictures.
● Taking pictures at a low ISO sensitivity
playing back the image
“Adding sound to still images [R]” (p. 31)
If the picture is taken with a high ISO sensitivity,
noise (small colored spots and color unevenness
that were not in the original image) can occur, and
the image can appear grainy. The resulting image
is grainier than with low ISO sensitivity as well.
“Selecting the ISO sensitivity” (p. 25)
Batteries
“Making batteries last longer”
● Avoid any of the following operations when not
actually taking pictures because they deplete
the battery power
● Repeatedly pressing the shutter button
halfway
● Repeatedly using the zoom
● Set [POWER SAVE] (p. 36) to [ON]

Appendix
Camera care
Exterior
• Wipe gently with a soft cloth. If the camera is
very dirty, soak the cloth in mild soapy water
and wring well. Wipe the camera with the
damp cloth and then dry it with a dry cloth. If
you have used the camera at the beach, use a
cloth soaked in clean water and wrung well.
Monitor
• Wipe gently with a soft cloth.
Lens
• Blow dust off the lens with a commercial
blower, then wipe gently with a lens cleaner.
Battery/AC adapter
• Wipe gently with a soft, dry cloth.
Do not use strong solvents such as benzene
or alcohol, or chemically treated cloth.
Mold may form on the lens surface if the
lens is left dirty.
Storage
• When storing the camera for extended
periods, remove the battery, AC adapter and
card, and keep in a cool, dry place that is well
ventilated.
• Periodically insert the battery and test the
camera functions.
Avoid leaving the camera in places where
chemical products are handled since this
may result in corrosion.
46
EN
Battery and AC adapter
(included)
• This camera uses one Olympus lithium ion
battery (LI-42B/LI-40B). No other type of
batteries can be used.
Caution:
There is a risk of explosion if the battery is
replaced with the incorrect battery type.
Dispose of the used battery following the
instructions. (p. 52)
• Power consumption by the camera varies
depending on which functions are used.
• During the conditions described below, power
is consumed continuously and the battery
becomes exhausted quickly.
• The zoom is used repeatedly.
• The shutter button is pressed halfway
repeatedly in shooting mode, activating the
auto focus.
• A picture is displayed on the monitor for an
extended period of time.
• The camera is connected to a computer or
printer.
• Using an exhausted battery may cause the
camera to turn off without displaying the
battery level warning.
• The rechargeable battery is not fully charged
at the time of purchase. Before use, charge
the battery fully with the supplied F-2AC
USB-AC adapter (hereafter referred to as AC
adapter) or an optional AC adapter (F-1AC/
D-7AC) or charger (LI-41C/LI-40C).
• When the included AC adapter is used,
charging usually takes approximately 3 hours
(varies on usage).
• The included AC adapter has been designed
to be used only for charging. Make sure that
operations such as shooting, viewing images
and so on are not being used while the AC
adapter is connected to the camera.
• The included AC adapter is designed to be
used only with this camera. Other cameras
cannot be charged with this AC adapter.
Do not use with other devices.
• For plug-in type AC adapter:
The included AC adapter is intended to be
correctly orientated in a vertical or floor mount
position.
Using a separately sold AC
adapter
A D-7AC AC adapter (sold separately) is useful
for time-consuming tasks such as downloading
images to a computer or when running a
slideshow for a long period of time. A CB-MA1/
CB-MA3 multi-adapter (sold separately) is
required when using a D-7AC AC adapter with
this camera. To charge the battery, turn the
camera off and connect the D-7AC AC adapter.
Use only AC adapters approved for use with this
camera.
Using an SD/SDHC memory
card
A card (and internal memory) also corresponds
to the film that records images in a film camera.
Otherwise, the recorded images (data) can be
erased, and retouching is also available with
the use of a computer. Cards can be removed
from the camera and exchanged, but this is
not possible with the internal memory. Use of
larger capacity cards enables you to take more
pictures.
SD/SDHC card write-protect switch
Using a separately sold
charger
A charger (LI-41C/LI-40C: sold separately) can
be used to charge the battery. In this case,
remove the battery from the camera.
Using your charger and AC
adapter abroad

Handling the Camera
WARNING
• Do not use the camera near flammable or
explosive gases.
• Do not use the flash and LED on people
(infants, small children, etc.) at close range.
• You must be at least 1 m (3 ft.) away from the
faces of your subjects. Firing the flash too close
to the subject’s eyes could cause a momentary
loss of vision.
• Keep young children and infants away from
the camera.
• Always use and store the camera out of the
reach of young children and infants to prevent
the following dangerous situations which could
cause serious injury:
• Becoming entangled in the camera strap,
causing strangulation.
• Accidentally swallowing the battery, cards or
other small parts.
• Accidentally firing the flash into their own eyes
or those of another child.
• Accidentally being injured by the moving parts
of the camera.
• Do not look at the sun or strong lights with the
camera.
• Do not use or store the camera in dusty or
humid places.
• Do not cover the flash with a hand while firing.
• Use SD/SDHC memory cards only. Never use
other types of cards.
If you accidently insert another type of card into
the camera, contact an authorized distributor or
service center. Do not try to remove the card by
force.
CAUTION
• Stop using the camera immediately if you
notice any unusual odors, noise, or smoke
around it.
• Never remove the batteries with bare hands,
which may cause a fire or burn your hands.
• Never hold or operate the camera with wet
hands.
• Do not leave the camera in places where it may
be subject to extremely high temperatures.
• Doing so may cause parts to deteriorate and, in
some circumstances, cause the camera to catch
fire. Do not use the charger or AC adapter if it is
covered (such as a blanket). This could cause
overheating, resulting in fire.
• Handle the camera with care to avoid getting a
low-temperature burn.
• When the camera contains metal parts,
overheating can result in a low-temperature
burn. Pay attention to the following:
• When used for a long period, the camera will
get hot. If you hold on to the camera in this
state, a low-temperature burn may be caused.
• In places subject to extremely cold
temperatures, the temperature of the camera’s
body may be lower than the environmental
temperature. If possible, wear gloves when
handling the camera in cold temperatures.
• Be careful with the strap.
• Be careful with the strap when you carry the
camera. It could easily catch on stray objects
and cause serious damage.
Battery Handling Precautions
Follow these important guidelines to prevent
batteries from leaking, overheating, burning,
exploding, or causing electrical shocks or
burns.
DANGER
• The camera uses a lithium ion battery specified
by Olympus. Charge the battery with the specified
AC adapter or charger. Do not use any other AC
adapters or chargers.
• Never heat or incinerate batteries.
• Take precautions when carrying or storing
batteries to prevent them from coming into contact
with any metal objects such as jewelry, pins,
fasteners, etc.
• Never store batteries where they will be
exposed to direct sunlight, or subjected to high
temperatures in a hot vehicle, near a heat source,
etc.
• To prevent causing battery leaks or damaging their
terminals, carefully follow all instructions regarding
the use of batteries. Never attempt to disassemble
a battery or modify it in any way, solder, etc.
• If battery fluid gets into your eyes, flush your eyes
immediately with clear, cold running water and
seek medical attention immediately.
• Always store batteries out of the reach of small
children. If a child accidentally swallows a battery,
seek medical attention immediately.
WARNING
• Keep batteries dry at all times.
• To prevent batteries from leaking, overheating,
or causing a fire or explosion, use only batteries
recommended for use with this product.
• Insert the battery carefully as described in the
operating instructions.
• If rechargeable batteries have not been recharged
within the specified time, stop charging them and
do not use them.
• Do not use a battery if it is cracked or broken.
• If a battery leaks, becomes discolored or
deformed, or becomes abnormal in any other way
during operation, stop using the camera.
• If a battery leaks fluid onto your clothing or skin,
remove the clothing and flush the affected area
with clean, running cold water immediately. If
the fluid burns your skin, seek medical attention
immediately.
• Never subject batteries to strong shocks or
continuous vibration.
CAUTION
• Before loading, always inspect the battery carefully
for leaks, discoloration, warping, or any other
abnormality.
• The battery may become hot during prolonged
use. To avoid minor burns, do not remove it
immediately after using the camera.
• Always unload the battery from the camera before
storing the camera for a long period.
Caution for Usage Environment
• To protect the high-precision technology contained
in this product, never leave the camera in the
places listed below, no matter if in use or storage:
• Places where temperatures and/or humidity
are high or go through extreme changes.
Direct sunlight, beaches, locked cars, or near
other heat sources (stove, radiator, etc.) or
humidifiers.
• In sandy or dusty environments.
• Near flammable items or explosives.
• In wet places, such as bathrooms or in the rain.
When using products with weatherproof designs,
read their manuals as well.
• In places prone to strong vibrations.
• Never drop the camera or subject it to severe
shocks or vibrations.
• When mounted on a tripod, adjust the position of
the camera with the tripod head. Do not twist the
camera.
• Do not touch electric contacts on cameras.
• Do not leave the camera pointed directly at the
sun. This may cause lens or shutter curtain
damage, color failure, ghosting on the CCD, or
may possibly cause fires.
• Do not push or pull severely on the lens.
• Before storing the camera for a long period,
remove the batteries. Select a cool, dry location
for storage to prevent condensation or mold from
forming inside the camera. After storage, test the
camera by turning it on and pressing the shutter
button to make sure that it is operating normally.
• Always observe the operating environment
restrictions described in the camera’s manual.
EN
51
Battery Handling Precautions
• This camera uses a lithium ion battery specified by
Olympus. Do not use any other type of battery.
• If the battery’s terminals get wet or greasy, camera
contact failure may result. Wipe the battery well
with a dry cloth before use.
• Always charge a battery when using it for the first
time, or if it has not been used for a long period.
• When operating the camera with battery power
at low temperatures, try to keep the camera and
spare battery as warm as possible. A battery that
has run down at low temperatures may be restored
after it is warmed at room temperature.
• The number of pictures you can take may vary
depending on the shooting conditions or battery.
• Before going on a long trip, and especially before
traveling abroad, purchase extra batteries. A
recommended battery may be difficult to obtain
while traveling.
• Please recycle batteries to help save our planet’s
resources. When you throw away dead batteries,
be sure to cover their terminals and always
observe local laws and regulations.
LCD Monitor
• Do not push the monitor forcibly; otherwise the
image may become vague, resulting in a playback
mode failure or damage to the monitor.
• A strip of light may appear on the top/bottom of the
monitor, but this is not a malfunction.
• When a subject is viewed diagonally in the
camera, the edges may appear zigzagged on the
monitor. This is not a malfunction; it will be less
noticeable in playback mode.
• In places subject to low temperatures, the LCD
monitor may take a long time to turn on or its
color may change temporarily. When using the
camera in extremely cold places, it is a good idea
to occasionally place it in a warm place. An LCD
monitor exhibiting poor performance due to low
temperatures will recover in normal temperatures.
• The LCD used for the monitor is made with
high-precision technology. However, black spots
or bright spots of light may appear constantly on
the LCD Monitor. Due to its characteristics or the
angle at which you are viewing the monitor, the
spot may not be uniform in color and brightness.
This is not a malfunction.
