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.

Quick Start Basics
What is a digital camera?
A digital camera stores images on a memory card, so you can record and
delete images a countless number of times.
Record
Delete
Play
You can use the images you record in a variety of different ways.
Store images on your
computer.
Print images.
13
Attach images to e-mail.
Quick Start Basics
What you can do with your CASIO camera
Your CASIO camera is packed with a powerful selection of features and functions to
make recording of digital images easier, including the following three main functions.
Dynamic
Photo
Extract a moving subject out of a series of Continuous Shutter images you have
shot and insert them into another image to create a Dynamic Photo image that
features the moving subject.
See page 111 for more information.
Make-up Mode
This feature smoothes the skin texture of the
subject and softens facial shadows caused by
harsh sunlight for better looking portraits.
See page 42 for more information.
BEST SHOT
Simply select the sample scene you want and the
camera sets up automatically. Then all you need do
is press the shutter button for perfect images.
An AUTO BEST SHOT mode automatically selects
the appropriate BEST SHOT sample scene based
on current shooting conditions.
See page 53 for more information.
14
Quick Start Basics
First, charge the battery prior to use.
Note that the battery of a newly purchased camera is not charged. Perform the steps
under “To charge the battery” to bring the battery to a full charge.
• Your camera requires a special CASIO rechargeable lithium ion battery (NP-80) for
power. Never try to use any other type of battery.
To charge the battery
1.
Positioning the positive + and
negative - terminals of the battery
with those of the charger unit, load
the battery into the charger unit.
2.
Plug the charger unit into a
household power outlet.
[CHARGE] lamp
About 100 minutes are required to
reach full charge. The [CHARGE]
lamp will go out when charging is
complete. Unplug the power cord
from the power outlet and then
remove the battery from the
charger.

Quick Start Basics
Other Charging Precautions
• Use the special charger (BC-80L) to charge the special lithium ion battery (NP-80).
Never use any other type of charger device. Attempting to use a different charger
can result in unexpected accident.
• 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.
To load the battery
1.
Open the battery cover.

• Leaving the camera for about two days with no power supplied while the battery is
dead will cause its date and time settings to be cleared. A message telling you to
configure time and date settings will appear the next time you turn on the camera
after restoring power. When this happens, configure date and time settings (page
143).
• See page 178 for information about battery life and memory capacity.
Battery Power Conservation Tips
• When you do not need to use the flash, select ? (flash off) for the flash setting
(page 33).
• Enable the Auto Power Off and the Sleep features to protect against wasting
battery power when you forget to turn off the camera (pages 145, 145).

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 144). Note that a version of this manual in
the language you select may not be included with a camera intended for the
Japanese market.

18
Quick Start Basics
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 174.
Supported Memory Cards
– SD Memory Card
– SDHC Memory Card
Use one of the above types of memory card.
* This model does not support use of an Eye-Fi card.
To load a memory card
1.
Press [ON/OFF] to turn off the camera and
then open the battery cover.
1
Pressing the battery cover, slide it in the direction
indicated by the arrow.

Pressing the battery cover against the camera, slide
it closed.
• For information about how to replace the memory
card, see page 161.
1
IMPORTANT!
• Never insert anything besides a supported memory card (page 19) into the memory
card slot.
• Should water or any foreign object ever get into the card slot, immediately turn off
the camera, remove the battery, and contact your retailer or nearest CASIO
authorized service center.
To format (initialize) a new memory card
You need to format a new memory card before using it for the first time.
1.
Turn on the camera and press [MENU].
2.
Select the “Set Up” tab, select “Format” and then press [6].
3.
Use [8] and [2] to select “Format” and then press [SET].
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 memory card on
a computer and then using it in the camera can slow down data processing by the
camera. In the case of an SD or SDHC memory card, formatting on a computer can
result in non-conformity with the SD format, causing problems with compatibility,
operation, etc.

mode, the lens will extend from the camera at this
time.
• Take care to ensure that nothing is restricting or
coming into contact with the lens as it extends.
Holding the lens with your hand so it cannot extend
creates the risk of malfunction.
• Pressing [p] (PLAY) while in the REC mode
switches to the PLAY mode. The lens retracts
about 10 seconds after switching modes.
• The Sleep function or Auto Power Off (pages 145,
145) will turn off power automatically if you do not
perform any operation for a preset amount of time.

Quick Start Basics
IMPORTANT!
• While the “Anti Shake” setting is “D Auto” or “A Camera AS”, half pressing the
shutter will cause the camera to vibrate and emit an operation sound. This is
normal and does not indicate malfunction (page 73).
. Using Quick Shutter
Fully pressing the shutting button without waiting for Auto Focus to operate will record
using Quick Shutter (page 76).
• With Quick Shutter, the camera focuses faster than normal Auto Focus, which
means you can capture quick moving action more easily. Note, however, that some
images may be out of focus when Quick Shutter is used.
• Whenever possible, take a little extra time to half-press the shutter button in order
to ensure proper focus.
. If the image does not focus...
If the focus frame stays red and the back lamp is flashing green, it means that the
image is not in focus (because the subject is too close, etc.) Re-point the camera at
the subject and try to focus again.
. If the subject is not in the center of the frame...
“Focus lock” (page 67) is the name of a technique you can use when you want to
shoot an image in which the subject to be focused on is not within the focus frame in
the center of the screen.
. To track the movement of a moving subject
Half-press the shutter button to follow and focus automatically on a moving subject.
See “Ë Tracking” (page 35) for more information.

Quick Start Basics
Holding the Camera Correctly
Your images will not come out clearly if you move the camera when you press the
shutter button. When pressing the shutter button, be sure to hold the camera as
shown in the illustration below, and keep it still by pressing your arms firmly against
your sides as you shoot.
Holding the camera still, carefully press the shutter button and take care to avoid all
movement as the shutter releases and for a few moments after it releases. This is
especially important when available lighting is low, which slows down the shutter
speed.

Snapshot Shooting Precautions
Operation
• Never open the battery cover while the back lamp is flashing green. Doing so can
result in the image you just shot being saved incorrectly, damage to other images
stored in memory, malfunction of the camera, etc.
• If unwanted light is shining directly 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 at the quality set for the image quality setting (page 79).
Shooting Indoors under Fluorescent Lighting
• Minute flickering of fluorescent lighting can affect the brightness or color of an
image.
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) or Manual Focus (page
64).

Changing the Image Size (Size)
. Pixels
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.

. About image sizes
The size of an image indicates how many pixels it contains, and is expressed as
horizontal pixelsxvertical pixels.
7M (3072x2304) size image =
Approximately 7 million pixels
3072*
2304*
VGA (640x480) size image =
Approximately 300,000 pixels
640*
480*
* Unit: pixels
Image Size Selection Tips
Note that larger images have more pixels, so they take up more memory space.
Large Number
of Pixels
More detail, but takes up more memory. Best
when you plan to print large-size prints (such
as A3 size).
Small Number
of Pixels
Less detail, but takes up less memory. Best
when you want to send images by e-mail,
etc.

Good detail
• The initial factory default image size setting is “10M”.
• Selecting “3:2” records images with an aspect ratio of 3:2, which matches the
standard aspect ratio of print paper.
• The letters “HDTV” stand for “High Definition Television”. An HDTV screen has an
aspect ratio of 16:9, which makes them wider than the usual 4:3 aspect ratio of
television screens of the past. Your camera can record images that are compatible
with the aspect ratio an HDTV screen.
• You should regard the print paper sizes suggested here as guidelines only (200 dpi

which indicates that charging is complete.
• For information about Flash Range, see page 177.
33
Snapshot Tutorial
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 177) 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. The camera also has an auto
red-eye correction feature that corrects for red-eye in recorded images.
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.

Snapshot Tutorial
IMPORTANT!
• If there is not enough available capacity on the memory card, you may not be able
to record the number of CS images indicated on the monitor screen. Make sure
your memory card has sufficient remaining capacity before shooting with using
continuous shutter.
• With continuous shutter, exposure and focus for the first image are applied for
successive images as well.
• When using a continuous shutter mode, keep the camera still until shooting is
finished.
• Continuous shutter cannot be used in combination with any of the following.
– Some BEST SHOT scenes (AUTO BEST SHOT, Dynamic Photo, Multi-motion
Image, ID Photo, Business cards and documents, White board, etc., Prerecord
(Movie), For YouTube, Voice Recording)
– easy Mode
– Movie Recording
– Make-up
• The speed of “CS: Normal Speed CS” depends on the type of memory card loaded
in the camera and the amount of free space available for storage. When shooting
to built-in memory, continuous shutter shooting is relatively slow.
• “CS: Normal Speed CS” speed is slower when shooting with flash.
• You cannot use the self-timer in combination with “CS: Normal Speed CS”,
“CS: High Speed CS”.
• Note that images recorded with “CS: High Speed CS” and “CS: Flash” are of
somewhat lower resolution and more prone to digital noise than images recorded
with “CS: Normal Speed CS”.
• The ISO sensitivity setting always is “AUTO” for “CS: High Speed CS” and
“CS: Flash”, regardless of the camera’s current ISO sensitivity setting.
• The flash range for Flash CS is narrower than that for normal flash.
• Shooting a very bright subject can cause a vertical band or a pink cast on the
monitor screen image. This does not indicate malfunction.

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 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.
Microphone
• Shooting a very bright subject can cause a vertical band or
a pink cast on the monitor screen image. This does not
indicate malfunction.
• Use of certain types of memory cards increase the time it takes to record movies,
which can cause movie frames to be lost. This condition is indicated by » and Y
flashing on the monitor screen. To avoid loss of movie frames, use of a memory
card with a maximum transfer speed of at least 10MB per second is recommended
(page 162).
• 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] 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.
• Auto Focus and Macro Focus become fixed focus while shooting a movie (page

Using BEST SHOT
. BEST SHOT Precautions
• The following BEST SHOT scenes cannot be used while recording a movie:
Dynamic Photo, Multi-motion Image, ID Photo, Business cards and documents,
White board, etc., Self-portrait (1 person), Self-portrait (2 people)
• The following BEST SHOT scenes cannot be used while shooting a snapshot:
Prerecord (Movie), For YouTube.
• 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.
• 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 136).
• 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.

IMPORTANT!
• If the camera remains in Auto Shutter standby without releasing the shutter, you
can record an image by pressing the shutter button all the way down again.
• Detect Blur and Detect Panning may not produce the desired effect when shooting
in an area where dim lighting requires a slow shutter speed, or when the subject is
moving extremely quickly.
• Since facial expressions differ from individual to individual, you may experience
problems with getting the camera to release the shutter while Detect Smile is being
used. If this happens, change the trigger sensitivity setting.
• The Auto Power Off (page 145) trigger time is fixed at five minutes while the

Turns off Anti Shake settings
IMPORTANT!
• While the “Anti Shake” setting is “D Auto” or “A Camera AS”, half pressing the
shutter will cause the camera to vibrate and emit an operation sound. This is
normal and does not indicate malfunction.
NOTE
• Only Camera Stabilizer can be used during movie recording.
• ISO sensitivity, aperture, and shutter speed do not appear on the monitor screen
when you half-press the shutter button while “D Auto” or “S Image AS” is
selected. These values will appear briefly, however, in the preview image that is
displayed immediately after you shoot a snapshot.
• The ISO sensitivity setting (page 36) must be “AUTO” for Anti Shake to work.
• Shooting while “D Auto” or “S Image AS” is selected can cause an image to
appear somewhat coarser than normal and can cause slight deterioration of image
resolution.
• Anti Shake may not be able to eliminate the effects of camera or subject movement
when movement is severe.
• “A Camera AS” may not work properly when the camera is mounted on a tripod.

Correcting Image Brightness (EV Shift)
Procedure
[r] (REC) * [MENU] * Quality Tab * EV Shift
You can manually adjust an image’s exposure value (EV value) before shooting it.
• Exposure Compensation Range: –2.0EV to +2.0EV
• Unit: 1/3EV
1.
Use [8] and [2] to adjust the exposure compensation value.
[8]: Increases the EV value. A higher EV
value is best for light-colored subjects
and backlit subjects.
[2]: Decreases the EV value. A lower EV
value is best for dark-color subjects and
for shooting outdoors on a clear day.
To cancel exposure compensation, change the EV value to 0.0.
2.
Press [SET].
This applies the exposure compensation value. The exposure compensation
value you set remains in effect until you change it.

Procedure
[r] (REC) * [MENU] * Quality Tab * Metering
The metering mode determines what part of the subject is metered for exposure.

Multi-pattern metering divides the image into sections and
measures the light in each section for a balanced exposure reading.
This type of metering provides error-free exposure settings for a
wide range of shooting conditions.
N Center
Weighted
Center weighted metering concentrates on the center of the focus
area to measure light. This type of metering is best when you want
some level of control over contrast.
˜ Spot
Spot metering takes readings at a very small area. Use this
metering method when you want exposure to be set according to
the brightness of a particular subject, without being affected by
surrounding conditions.
• The currently selected metering mode is indicated by an icon on the snapshot
screen. No icon is displayed when “B Multi” is selected as the metering mode.
