About the Batteries
The following batteries can be used in the camera. Please choose
which kind to use according to your needs.
• AA Alkaline Batteries (LR6) (included)
You can obtain them anywhere, so they are convenient for travel.
However, in a low-temperature environment the number of shots
you can take will decrease. Warm the batteries before use. It is
recommended that you use the rechargeable battery when using
the camera for a long time.
• Rechargeable Battery (DB-50) (sold separately)
This is a lithium-ion battery. This is economical because you can
recharge it using the battery charger (sold separately) and use it
over and over again. They last a long time, so they are convenient
for travel.
• AA Nickel Batteries (available in stores)
These batteries are not rechargeable. However, they last a long
time as compared with AA Alkaline Batteries when used with a
digital camera.
16
Quick Guide
• Nickel-Hydrogen Battery (available in stores)
This is economical because you can recharge and use it over and
over again. Use a charger (available in stores) for charging.
The battery may be inert and consequently it may not supply
power immediately after it is purchased or left unused for more
than a month. In such a case, recharge the battery two or three
times before use. The battery self-discharges with time even if the
camera is not used, so recharge it before use.
In addition to the batteries, you can use the AC Adapter (P.139).
Note
Indication of the number of images you can take
Battery Type
Number of Shots
Rechargeable Battery (DB-50)
Approx. 460
AA Alkaline Batteries (LR6)
Approx. 160
• The number of shots is based on a temperature of 22 degrees Celsius, shooting at 30
second intervals and one out of every two being shot with the flash. If you set the camera to
the Power-Save or Synchro-Monitor mode, the number of shots you can take will increase.
• The number of shots is for reference only. If the camera is used for long periods of time for
setting and playback, the shooting time (the number of shots) will decrease.
Reference
• For how to insert the Rechargeable Battery , see P.139.
• For how to use the AC Adapter, see P.140.
17
Caution
• Other batteries, such as manganese dry cell (R6) and Ni-Cd, cannot be used.
• You may not use CR-V3.
• Please remove the batteries if you are not going to use the camera for a long period of
time.
• The life of an AA alkaline battery (LR6) depends on the brand and the storage time from the
date of production. In addition, the life of an alkaline battery becomes shorter at low
temperatures.
• The Nickel-Hydrogen Battery is not factory-charged. Charge it before use.
Immediately after the purchase or after a long storage, the battery may not be charged fully.
Repeat charging and discharging before use. For details, see the documentation that came
with the battery or charger.
• The battery may become very hot immediately after operation. Turn the camera off and
leave it to cool down sufficiently before removing the battery.
Note
Battery level indication
A battery mark appears at the lower left of the LCD monitor to indicate the battery level.
Prepare new batteries before the batteries wear out.
Battery Mark
Description
Sufficient battery charge
Low remaining charge: Prepare new batteries.
No remaining charge: Replace the batteries.
Caution
• If you are using nickel metal hydride batteries,
may not appear or
or
may appear immediately depending on the battery type and environmental
conditions. Check the batteries at hand before use.
• If you are using the AC Adapter,
may appear. This does not indicate malfunction
and you can continue to use the camera.

About an SD Memory Card (available in stores)
You can store still images you have taken either in the camera's internal memory or on
an SD Memory Card (available in stores). The internal memory capacity is 12 MB.
When you want to record a lot of images, or images at high resolutions, use a highcapacity SD Memory Card.
Quick Guide
Note
Where images are recorded
When no SD memory card is inserted, the camera records images in the internal memory;
when an SD memory card is inserted, it records images on the memory card.
When no memory card is loaded
When an SD Memory Card is loaded
Records to internal memory
Records to the SD memory card
Caution
• If an SD memory card is loaded, the camera will not record to the internal memory, even if
the card is full.
• Take care not to get the metal parts of the card dirty.
Note
Write-protecting your images
If you move the card's write-protection switch to LOCK, your still images cannot
be accidentally erased and the memory card cannot be formatted. If you
release the protection (by returning the switch to its original position), it is once
again possible to erase images and format the card.
So it's a good idea to switch to LOCK when you have some important data
recorded.
Note that you cannot shoot images in the LOCK state because no data can be recorded on the card.
Unlock the card when shooting.
Reference
• For switching between the SD Memory Card and internal memory during playback, see P.35.
• For recording capacities, see P.144.

Changing the Exposure (EXPOSURE COMP.)
The exposure setting allows you to select brightness levels for your shots.
Normally, if your subject is centered, backlight compensation is automatically
activated, and you can shoot with correct exposure.
However, in the following cases, or when you intentionally want to change the
exposure, you can change the exposure setting. Exposure can be specified in
the range from -2.0 to +2.0. Setting the level higher (+) makes pictures
brighter and lower (-) makes pictures darker.
For Backlighting
When the background is particularly bright, the subject will be dark (underexposure). In this case, set the exposure level higher (+).
When your subject is whitish
It will turn out entirely dark (underexposure). Set the exposure level higher (+).
When your subject is darkish
It will turn out entirely bright (overexposure). Set the exposure level lower (-).
The same happens when you take photos of people in a spotlight.
To change the setting, use either the Shooting Setting menu or the ADJ. button.

H. Cautions on Use
• This product is for domestic use. The warranty is only valid domestically.
• Should the product fail or malfunction while you are abroad, the
manufacturer assumes no responsibility for servicing the product locally or
bearing the expenditure incurred therefore.
• Be sure not to drop or apply any sudden force to the camera.
• Firing the flash consecutively may heat the firing unit. Do not fire it
consecutively more than necessary.
• Do not fire the flash near eyes, or view the sun or other strong light directly
through the viewfinder. It could cause visual impairment (particularly for
infants).
• Do not fire the flash near the driver of a vehicle to avoid causing accidents.
• The batteries may become hot after extended use. Touching the batteries
immediately after use could result in burns to your fingers.
• If the LCD monitor or panel is exposed to sunlight, they may become
washed out and images may become hard to view.
• The LCD monitor and panel may contain some pixels that do not remain lit
up continually in part or at all. Also, the brightness may become uneven
because of the characteristics of LCDs. These are not failures.
• While you are carrying the camera, be careful not to hit it against other
objects.
• In an environment where the temperature changes suddenly, condensation
may occur in the camera, resulting in troubles such as fogging of the glass
surface or malfunctions of the camera. If this occurs, place the camera in a
bag to slow the temperature change as much as possible. Take it out of the
bag after the temperature difference from the atmosphere has decreased to
a fairly small amount.
• To avoid damaging the connectors, do not put any objects into the camera's
microphone or speaker holes.
Note
Conditions in which condensation may easily occur:
When the camera is moved to an environment where the temperature differs greatly.
• In humid places
• In a room immediately after being heated, or when the camera is exposed directly to cooled
air from an air-conditioner or another similar appliance
146
I. Care and Storage
Care
• Please note that if fingerprints, dirt, etc. get onto the lens, picture quality will

cloth to gently dust it off.
• After use at the beach or around chemicals, wipe it off particularly carefully.
• In the unlikely event that your camera fails to work properly, please consult
your Ricoh Repair Center.

objects against it.
• Please clean the surface of the LCD Monitor with solvents available on the
market specially for cleaning LCD display surfaces. Gently wipe with a soft
cloth dampened with a little cleaner.

• Please avoid storing your camera in the following kinds of places, as
breakdown may result.
In high heat and humidity, or where there is severe change in temperature
or humidity.
Places with a lot of dust, dirt or sand.
