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

malfunction and/or failure of your camera.
• Operation is not guaranteed in the case of a computer built or modified by you.
Even in the case of a commercially available computer, certain USB port
specifications may make it impossible to charge via the USB cable.
• A battery that is still warm due to normal use may not charge fully. Give the battery
time to cool before charging it.
• A battery discharges slightly even when it is not loaded in the camera. Because of
this, it is recommended that you charge the battery immediately before you need to
use it.
• Charging the camera’s battery may cause interference with TV and radio reception.
If this happens, plug the charger into an outlet that is further away from the TV or
radio.
• Actual charging time depends on current battery capacity and charging conditions.
• Do not use the USB-AC adaptor with any other device.
• Never use the power cord with another device.
• Use only the USB-AC adaptor and USB cable specified in this manual for charging.
Use of any other type of devices may result in improper charging.

Quick Start Basics
Configuring Basic Settings the First Time You Turn On the
Camera
The first time you load a battery into the camera, a screen appears for configuring the
display language, date, and time settings. Failure to set the date and time correctly
will cause the wrong date and time data to be recorded with images.
IMPORTANT!
• A screen for language selection will not appear in step 2 of the procedure below if
you purchased a camera intended for the Japanese market. To change the display
language from Japanese in this case, use the procedure under “Specifying the
Display Language (Language)” (page 99). Note that a version of this manual in the
language you select may not be included with a camera intended for the Japanese
market.
• Camera models sold in certain geographic areas may not support display language
selection.

above procedure, refer to the following pages for information about how to correct
the settings.
– Display language: Page 99
– Date and time: Page 98
NOTE
• Each country controls its local time offset and the use of summer time, and so they
are subject to change.
• Removing the battery from the camera too soon after configuring time and date
settings for the first time can cause the settings to be reset to their factory defaults.
Do not remove the battery for at least 24 hours after configuring settings.
Preparing a Memory Card
Though the camera has built-in memory that can be used to store images and
movies, you probably will want to purchase a commercially available memory card for
greater capacity. The camera does not come with a memory card. Images recorded
while a memory card is loaded are saved to the memory card. When no memory card
is loaded, images are saved to built-in memory.
• For information about memory card capacities, see page 124.
Supported Memory Cards
– SD Memory Card
– SDHC Memory Card
– SDXC Memory Card
Use one of the above types of memory card.
• The above are supported memory card types as of November 2013.
• This camera supports use of SD memory cards of the following types and
capacities: SD memory cards up to 2GB, SDHC memory cards from 2GB up to
32GB, SDXC memory cards from 32GB up to 2TB. Note that the ability to use any
particular card with this camera, even if it satisfies the above capacity and type
requirements, is not guaranteed.
• This camera supports use of Eye-Fi cards.

the camera, remove the battery, and contact your retailer or nearest CASIO
authorized service center.
20
Quick Start Basics
To replace the memory card
Press the memory card and then release it. This
will cause it to pop out of the memory card slot
slightly. Pull the card out the rest of the way and
then insert another one.
• Never remove a card from the camera while
the back lamp is flashing green. Doing so can
cause the image save operation to fail and
even damage the memory card.
To format (initialize) a new memory card
Format a memory card on the camera before using it for the first time.
IMPORTANT!
• Formatting a memory card that already has snapshots or other files on it, will delete
its contents. Normally you do not need to format a memory card again. However, if
storing to a card has slowed down or if you notice any other abnormality, re-format
the card.
• Be sure to use the camera to format a memory card. Formatting a card on a
computer will result in a non-SD standard format, which can greatly slow down
processing time and cause compatibility, performance, and other problems.
• Before formatting a new Eye-Fi card to use it for the first time, copy the Eye-Fi
Center install files to your computer. Do this before formatting the card.

Changing the Image Size (Size)
. Pixels and image size
A digital camera image is a collection of small
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.
Pixel
Example:
Image size
pixels
10M
3648x2736 (Approximately 10 million pixels)
3M
2048x1536 (Approximately 3 million pixels)
• Note that larger images have more pixels, so they take up more memory space.
• For information about image size, image quality, and number of images that can be
stored, see page 124.
• For information about movie image size, see page 34.
• For information about resizing existing snapshots, see page 74.

Snapshot Tutorial
IMPORTANT!
• Foreign matter on the flash window can react with the light of the flash, producing
some smoke and abnormal odor. Though this does not indicate malfunction, oil
from your fingers and other foreign matter when left on the flash window can
become difficult to clean off later. Because of this, you should make it a regular
habit to wipe the window clean regularly with a soft, dry cloth.
NOTE
• Take care so your fingers and the strap do not block the flash.
• The desired effect may not be obtained when the subject is too far away or too
close.
• Flash charging time (page 127) depends on operating conditions (battery
condition, ambient temperature, etc.).
• Shooting with flash turned off when lighting is dim results in a slow shutter speed,
which can cause image blur due to camera movement. Under such conditions,
secure the camera with a tripod, etc.
• With red eye reduction, the flash is fired automatically in accordance with
exposure. It does not fire in areas where lighting is bright.
• The presence of outdoor sunlight, fluorescent lighting, or some other light source
can cause abnormal image colors.
• Select ? (Flash Off) for the flash setting when shooting in areas where flash
photograph is prohibited.
Red-eye Reduction
Using the flash to shoot at night or in a dimly lit room can cause red spots inside the
eyes of people who are in the image. This is caused when the light from the flash
reflects off of the retina of the eye. When red-eye reduction is selected as the flash
mode, the camera fires a pre-flash to cause the irises in the eyes of any people in the
image to close, which reduces the chance of red eye.
Note the following important points when using red-eye reduction.
• Red-eye reduction does not work unless the people in the image are looking
directly at the camera (flash).
• Red-eye reduction may not work very well if the subjects are located far away from
the camera.

scenes are being used.
42
Recording Movie Images and Audio
NOTE
• 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 also records audio. Note the following points when
Microphone
shooting a movie.
– Take care that the microphone is not blocked by your fingers,
etc.
– Good recording results are not possible when the camera is
too far away from what you are trying to record.
– Operating camera buttons while shooting can cause button
noise to be picked up in the audio.
• Shooting a very bright subject can cause a vertical band or a
pink cast on the monitor screen image. This does not indicate malfunction.
• 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 » and Y will flash
on the monitor screen.
• Only digital zoom can be used for zooming during movie recording. Since optical
zoom is not possible while recording a movie, zoom as required before pressing
[0] (Movie) to start 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, use of a tripod is
recommended under these conditions.
• Focus is fixed while movie recording is in progress.

Using BEST SHOT
. BEST SHOT Precautions
• Some BEST SHOT scenes cannot be used while recording a movie.
• “For YouTube” scene cannot be used while shooting a snapshot.
• The “Voice Recording” scene cannot be used while shooting a snapshot or
recording a movie.
• Some scenes like “Night Scene” and “Fireworks” results in a slow shutter speed
setting. Since a slow shutter speed increases the chance of digital noise in the
image, the camera automatically performs a digital noise reduction process when
either of these scenes is selected. This means that it will take a bit longer for the
image to be saved which is indicated by the back lamp flashing green. Do not
perform any key operation during that time. Also, it is a good idea to use a tripod to
avoid image blur due to camera movement when shooting at slow shutter speeds.
• The BEST SHOT YouTube scene sets up the camera for recording movies that are
optimized for uploading to YouTube. Movies recorded with the YouTube scene are
stored in a special folder to make them easy to locate for uploading (page 93).
• Your camera includes a sample scene that optimizes settings for auction site
images. Depending on your camera model, the sample scene is named either “For
eBay” or “Auction”. Images you record using the auction site sample scene are
stored in a special folder so you can easily find them on your computer (page 93).
• High Sensitivity
– The high sensitivity setting is disabled whenever the camera’s flash fires.
– High sensitivity may not produce the desired results in very dark conditions.
– When shooting with slow shutter speeds, use a tripod to protect against blurring
due to camera movement.
– Under certain lighting conditions, the camera will perform an automatic noise
filtering operation to reduce digital noise in the image. This operation causes the
camera to take longer than normal to save the image and be ready for the next
shot.
• BEST SHOT scene images were not shot using this camera.
• Images shot using a BEST SHOT scene may not produce the results you expected
due to shooting conditions and other factors.
• You can modify the camera settings that are made after you select a BEST SHOT
scene. Note, however, that the BEST SHOT settings revert to their defaults when
you select another BEST SHOT scene or turn off the camera.

. Date Stamping
You can use one of the following three methods to include the recording date in the
printout of an image.
Configuring camera settings
Configure DPOF settings (page 80).
You can turn date stamping on and off each time you print. You can configure
settings so some images include the date stamp and some don’t.
Configure the Camera’s Time Stamp setting (page 98).
• The camera’s Time Stamp setting imprints the date into a snapshot when you
shoot it, so the date is always included when you print. It cannot be deleted.
• Do not turn on DPOF date stamping for an image that includes a date
stamped with the camera’s Time Stamp function. Doing so can cause the two
stamps to be overprinted.
Configuring computer settings
You can use commercially available image management software to date
stamp images.

Using the Camera with a Computer
Files and Folders
The camera creates a file and saves it 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 93).
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
100th folder name:
999CASIO.
100CASIO
There can be up to 900 folders in memory.
• The BEST SHOT (page 46) includes a sample Serial number (3 digits)
scene that optimizes settings for auction site
images. Depending on your camera model,
the sample scene is named either “For eBay”
or “Auction”.
– Images recorded with the eBay scene are
stored in a folder named “100_EBAY”.
– Images recorded with the Auction scene are
stored in a folder named “100_AUCT”.
• BEST SHOT also has a scene named “For
YouTube” that optimizes movie settings for
recording movies for upload to YouTube.
Images recorded with the YouTube scene are
stored in a folder named “100YOUTB”.
• 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.

Using the Camera with a Computer
. Supported Image Files
• Image files shot with this camera
• DCF-compliant image files
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 copies of
the DCIM folders is to change its name to a date or something similar after you
copy it to your computer. If you later decided to return the 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 93 in order for the camera to be able to recognize them correctly.

turning off the camera
– Disconnecting the USB cable while communication is in progress
– Shooting with a battery that quickly goes low right after it is charged
• Shooting with a battery that quickly goes low right after it is charged can also
cause camera malfunction. Replace the battery with a new one immediately.
– Other abnormal operations
Any of the above conditions can cause an error message to appear on the monitor
screen (page 122). Perform the action indicated by the message that appears.
. Operating Environment
• Operating Temperature Requirements: 0 to 40°C (32 to 104°F)
• Operating Humidity: 10 to 85% (non condensation)
• Do not place the camera in any of the following locations.
– In an area exposed to direct sunlight, or large amounts of moisture, dust, or sand
– Near heating or cooling devices, or in other areas subjected to extreme changes
in temperature or humidity
– Inside of a motor vehicle on a hot day, or in an area subjected to strong vibration
. Condensation
Sudden and extreme temperature changes, such as when the camera is moved from
the outdoors on a cold winter day into a warm room, can cause water droplets called
“condensation” to form on the interior and the exterior of the camera, which creates
the risk of malfunction. To prevent condensation from forming seal the camera in a
plastic bag before changing locations. Then leave the bag sealed to allow the air
inside to naturally change to the same temperature as the air in the new location.
After that, remove the camera from the bag and open the battery cover for a few
hours.

memory card. The original data remains on the card. Note that responsibility for the
data on a memory card lies with you. The following procedures are recommended
whenever you discard a memory card or the camera, or if you transfer ownership to
another party.
• When discarding a memory card, either physically destroy the memory card or use
commercially available data delete software to completely delete the data on the
memory card.
• When transferring ownership of a memory card to another party, use commercially
available data deletion software to completely delete the data on it.
• Use the format function (page 102) to completely delete the data in built-in memory
before discarding or transferring ownership of the camera.
. Other Precautions
The camera becomes slightly warm during use. This is normal and does not indicate
malfunction.

Power Supply
Charging
. If the camera’s back lamp starts flashing red...
• Ambient temperature or the temperature of the battery may be either too high or
too low. Disconnect the USB cable and wait until temperature is within the
allowable charging range before trying again.
• Battery contacts may be dirty. Wipe them with a dry cloth.
• Try connecting to a different computer USB port. Depending on the setup of your
computer, you may not be able to charge the camera’s battery over a USB
connection.
If problems continue to occur after you perform the above steps, it could mean that
the battery is faulty. Contact your nearest CASIO authorized service center.
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.
113
Appendix
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 cord 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-120) is recommended while on a trip
in order to avoid not being able to shoot images due to the battery going dead.
Using a Memory Card
See page 19 for information about supported memory cards and how to load a
memory card.
. Using a Memory Card
• SD memory cards, SDHC memory cards, and SDXC
Write enabled
memory cards have a write protect switch. Use the
switch when you need to guard against accidentally
deleting data. Note, however, if you write protect an SD
memory card you must then turn write protection off
Write disabled
whenever you want to record to it, format it, or delete
any of its images.
• If a memory card starts to behave abnormally during image playback, you can
restore normal operation by reformatting it (page 102). 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.).
114
Appendix
. 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 » and Y will flash on the monitor screen.
Reset Initial Default Settings
The tables in this section show the initial default settings on menus that appear in the
REC mode and PLAY mode when you reset the camera (page 102).
