GX-1S Camera Characteristics
ƃ Features a 23.5x15.7 mm CCD with 6.1 million effective pixels for superior definition and a wide
dynamic range.
ƃ Features an Auto-Focus sensor with 11 focusing points. The central 9 are wide cross area sensors.
ƃ Improved manual focusing using a viewfinder similar to a conventional 35 mm SLR camera, with
0.95x magnification. Also features a superimpose function in which the focus points on the viewfinder
illuminate red.
ƃ Uses CR-V3, AA lithium batteries, rechargeable AA Ni-MH batteries or AA alkaline batteries.
ƃ Features a large 2.5-inch LCD monitor with 210,000 pixels and a brightness adjusting function for
high-precision viewing performance.
ƃ Concepts of Universal Design have been implemented to various parts of the camera.
The large, high-resolution LCD monitor and easy-to-use menus make the camera easier to operate.
The captured area (view angle) will differ between the GX-1S and 35 mm SLR cameras even if the
same lens is used because the format size for 35 mm film and the CCD are different.
Sizes for 35 mm film and CCD
35 mm film : 36x24 mm
GX-1S CCD : 23.5x15.7 mm
Angles of view being equal, the focal length of a lens used with a 35 mm camera must be
approximately 1.5 times longer than that of GX-1S. To obtain a focal length framing the same area,
divide the focal length of the 35 mm lens by 1.5.
Example) To capture the same image as a 150 mm lens attached to a 35 mm camera
150÷1.5=100
Use a 100 mm lens with the GX-1S.
Conversely, multiply the focal length of the lens used with GX-1S by 1.5 to determine the focal
length for 35 mm cameras.
Example) If 300 mm lens is used with GX-1S
300x1.5=450
Focal length is equivalent to 450 mm lens on a 35 mm camera.

Recorded Pixels and Quality Level
ƈ Choose the number of pixels (size) and quality level (data compression rate) of pictures according to
how you intend to use the pictures you have taken.
Pictures with larger recorded size or the more
are clearer when printed.
The number of pictures that can be taken (the number of pictures that can be recorded on an SD
Memory Card) becomes less with larger file sizes.
The quality of the captured photo or printed picture depends on the quality level, exposure control,
resolution of the printer and a variety of other factors so you do not need to select more than the
required number of pixels. For example, to print in postcard size,
(1536Ŧ1024) is adequate.
Set the appropriate recorded size and quality level depending on purpose.

Holding the Camera
ƈ How you hold the camera is important when taking pictures.
- Hold the camera firmly with both hands.
- Press the shutter release button gently when taking a picture.
[ Horizontal position ]
[ Vertical position ]
INFORMATION
ƃ To reduce camera shake, support your body or the camera on a solid object such as a table, tree,
or wall. Always use the shortest practical shutter speed for hand-held shots, especially when
using Zoom or Telephoto lenses.
ƃ Although there are individual differences among photographers, the slowest recommended
shutter speed for a handheld camera is generally 1/(focal lengthx1.5). For example, it is 1/75 of a
second for a focal length of 50 mm and 1/150 of a second for 100 mm. A tripod should be used
for shutter speeds slower than this.
ƃ When using a telephoto lens, a tripod that is heavier than the total weight of the camera and lens
is recommended to avoid camera shake.

Using the Built-in Flash
Using Red-eye Reduction Flash
ƈ “Red-eye” is the phenomenon where eyes look reddish in photographs taken in dark environments
with a flash. This is caused by the reflection of the electronic flash from the retina of the eye.
Red-eye occurs because pupils are dilated in dark environments.
This phenomenon cannot be averted but the following measures can be used to combat it.
ŋBrighten the surroundings when shooting.
ŋIf using a zoom lens, set it to wide-angle and move in closer to your subject.
ŋUse a flash that supports red-eye reduction.
ŋPosition the flash as far away from the camera as possible when using an external flash.
The red-eye reduction function on this camera reduces red-eye by discharging the flash twice.
With the red-eye reduction function, the pre-flash is discharged just before the shutter is released.
This reduces pupil dilation. The main flash is then discharged while the pupils are smaller, reducing
the red-eye effect. To use the red-eye reduction function, set
(Red-eye reduction auto flash) in
Picture mode or
(Red-eye reduction manual flash) in other modes.
Daylight-Sync Shooting
ƈ In daylight conditions, the flash will eliminate shadows when a portrait picture is taken with a personŖs
face cast in shadow. Use of the flash in this way is called Daylight-Sync Shooting. Flash is discharged
manually when shooting with Daylight-Sync Shooting.

Setting the Exposure
Effect of Aperture and Shutter Speed
ƈ Correct exposure of the subject is determined by the combination of shutter speed and aperture
setting. There are many correct combinations of shutter speed and aperture for a particular subject.
Different combinations produce different effects.
Effect of Shutter Speed
ƈ The shutter speed determines the length of time that light is allowed to strike the CCD. Adjusting the
shutter speed alters the amount of light striking the CCD.
ƃ Using slower shutter speed
If the subject is moving, the image will be blurred because the
shutter is open longer.
It is possible to enhance the effect of motion (rivers, waterfalls,
waves, etc.) by intentionally using a slower shutter speed.
ƃ Using faster shutter speed
Choosing a faster shutter speed will allow freezing the action of a
moving subject.
A faster shutter speed also helps preventing camera shake.
ŝ126Ş
Setting the Exposure
Effect of Aperture
ƈ Adjust the amount of light hitting the CCD by changing the aperture.
ƃ Opening the aperture (reduce the aperture value)
Objects closer and farther than the focused subject will be out of
focus. For instance, if you take a picture of flower against a
landscape with the aperture open, the landscape in front and
behind the flower will be blurred, emphasizing only the flower.
ƃ Closing the aperture (increase the aperture value)
The range in focus expands forward and backward.
For instance, if you take a picture of flower against a landscape
with a smaller aperture, the landscape in front and behind the
flower will be in focus.
Depth of Field
When you focus on a specific subject, there is a range in which objects closer and farther away will
also be in focus. This focused range is called the depth of field.
ƃ The depth of field for the GX-1S differs depending on the lens but compared to a 35 mm
camera, the value is roughly one aperture setting lower (the focused range becomes shallower).
ƃ The wider the wide-angle lens, and the farther away the subject, the greater the depth of field
(some zoom lenses do not have a scale for depth of field because of their structure).

How to Check Depth of Field
ƈ When you focus on a portion of the subject, there is a range in which object closer and farther will
also be in focus. This focused range is called the depth of field. If you use Depth of Field confirmation,
you can check the depth of field in the viewfinder before taking a picture.
1. Focus on the subject.
2. Turn the main switch to
while looking through the
viewfinder.
- You can check the depth of field in the viewfinder while

Use this metering when you want to compensate the exposure
by experience, instead of leaving it to the camera.
The illustration shows that sensitivity increases as the pattern
height increases (center). This mode does not automatically
compensate for backlit scenes.
Using the Spot Metering
ƈ With spot metering, brightness is measured only within a limited
area at the center of the screen as shown in the illustration.

Calculating Shooting Distance from Aperture Value
ƈ The following equation calculates the distance of the flash for aperture values.
Maximum flash distance L1 = Guide number ÷ Selected aperture
Minimum flash distance L2 = Maximum flash distance L1 ÷ 5*
* The value 5 used in the formula above is a fixed value which applies only when using the
built-in flash alone.
Example)
When sensitivity is [ISO 200] and aperture value is F4
L1 = 15.6 ÷ 4 = approx. 3.9 (m)
L2 = 3.9 ÷ 5 = approx. 0.8 (m)
Therefore, the flash can be used in a range of about 0.8 m to 3.9 m.
The flash cannot be used when the distance is less than 0.7 m. When the flash is used at closer than
0.7 m, it causes vignetting in the picture corners, light is distributed unevenly and the picture may be
over-exposed.
ŝ148Ş
Using the Built-in Flash
Calculating Aperture Value from Shooting Distance
ƈ The following equation calculates the aperture value for shooting distances.
Aperture Value Used F = Guide number ÷ Shooting distance
When sensitivity is [ISO 200] and shooting distance is 5.2 m, aperture
value is:
F = 15.6 ÷ 5.2 = 3
If the resulting number (3, in the above example) is not available as a lens aperture, the smaller
number that is closest (2.8, in the above example) is generally used.

Glossary
AdobeRGB
Colour space recommended by Adobe Systems, Inc. for commercial printing. Wider range of colour
reproduction than sRGB. Covers most of the colour range so colours only available when printed are not
lost when editing images from a computer. When image is opened by non-compatible software, the
colours look lighter.
AE Metering
Brightness of subject is measured to determine exposure. In this camera, select from [Multi-segment
Metering], [Center-weighted Metering] and [Spot Metering].
Aperture
The aperture increases or reduces the light beam (the amount of light) that passes through the lens.
Auto Bracket
For automatically changing the shooting conditions. When the shutter button is pressed, three images
are shot. The first one has no compensation, the second is under-exposed and the third is overexposed.
Bright Portion
Over exposed area in the image loses contrast and appears white.
Camera Shake (Blur)
When the camera moves while the shutter is open, the entire image appears blurred. This occurs more
often when shutter speed is low.
Prevent camera shake by raising the sensitivity, using the flash, or by using a faster shutter speed.
Alternatively, use a tripod to stabilize the camera. Because camera motion causes camera shake, use
the self-timer, the remote control unit, and the cable switch to prevent.
CCD (Charge Coupled Devices)
Photography element which converts the light entering through the lens into electric signals.
ŝ202Ş
Glossary
Colour space
A defined range of colours from the spectrum which are used. In digital cameras, [sRGB] is defined as
the standard Colour Space by Exif. In this camera, [AdobeRGB] is also used because of its richer colour
expression over sRGB.
Colour Temperature
This numerically expresses the colour of the light source illuminating the subject. This is indicated in
absolute temperature, using Kelvin (K) units.
The colour of light shifts to a bluish colour as the colour temperature rises, and to a reddish colour as the
colour temperature falls.
DCF (Design Rule for Camera File System)
A digital camera file system standard established by the Japan Electronics and Information Technology
Industries Association (JEITA).
Depth of Field
Area of focus. This depends on the aperture, lens focal length, and distance to the subject. For example,
select a smaller aperture to increase the depth of field or use a larger aperture to decrease the depth of
field.
DPOF (Digital Print Order Format)
Rules for writing information onto a card with recorded images regarding the specific images and
number of copies to be printed. Prints can easily be made by taking images to a DPOF photo printing
store.
EV (Exposure Value)
Exposure Value is determined by the combination of the aperture value and the shutter speed.
EV Compensation
Process of adjusting the image brightness by changing the shutter speed and aperture value.
Exif (Exchangeable image file format for digital still camera)
A standard digital camera file format established by the Japan Electronics and Information Technology
Industries Association (JEITA).
Focus point
Position in the viewfinder that determines focus.
ŝ203Ş
Glossary
Histogram
A graph that shows the darkest and brightest points in an image. The horizontal axis represents the
brightness and the vertical axis represents the number of pixels. This is useful when you wish to refer to
the exposure status of an image.
JPEG
An image compression method. The image is recorded in JPEG format when the quality level is set to
(Best),
(Better), or
(Good). Images recorded in JPEG format are suited for viewing on your PC
or for attaching to e-mail.
ND (Neutral Density) Filter
A filter which reduces the amount of light entering the camera lens by a measured amount, without
affecting the picture itself.
Noise Reduction
Process to reduce noise (image roughness or unevenness) caused by slow shutter speed.
NTSC/ PAL
These are video output formats. NTSC is mainly used in Japan, North America, and South Korea. PAL
is mainly used in Europe and in China.
Quality Level
This refers to the image compression ratio. The lower the compression, the more detailed the image.
The image becomes rougher as the compression rate rises.
RAW data
Unedited image data output from the CCD. RAW data is data before being internally processed by the
camera. Settings like White balance, contrast, saturation and sharpness can be manipulated individually
on each file. In addition, RAW data is 12-bit data that contains 16 times the information of 8-bit JPEG
and TIFF data. Rich gradations are possible. Transfer RAW data to your computer and use the provided
software to create image data with different settings, such as JPEG or TIFF.
ŝ204Ş
Glossary
Recorded Pixels
Indicates the size of the image by the number of pixels. The more pixels that compose a picture, the
larger the image size.
Sensitivity
The sensitivity of the camera to light; the equivalent of film speed in a camera using film. With a high
sensitivity, images can be shot with a high shutter speed even in dimly lit places, reducing camera
shake. However, images with high sensitivity are more susceptible to noise.
Shutter Speed
The length of time that the shutter is open and light strikes the CCD. The amount of light that strikes the
CCD can be changed by altering the shutter speed.
sRGB (standard RGB)
International standard of colour space established by the IEC (International Electrotechnical
Commission). This is defined from colour space for PC monitors and is also used as the standard colour
space for Exif.
Vignetting
Vignetting occurs when corners of pictures are darkened because the subject was blocked by the hood
or filter or the flash was blocked.
White Balance
While shooting, colour temperature is adjusted to match the light source so that the subject appears to
have correct colour.
