of the battery and you may experience reduced battery life.
Batteries will usually recover at normal temperatures.
During extended use of the camera, the camera body may
become warm. This is perfectly normal.
It is easy to buy alkaline batteries. However, the duration
for using batteries varies in accordance with the battery
manufacturer or the photographic conditions
Do not use manganese batteries as manganese batteries
cannot deliver sufficient power.
For this camera, it recommended that a high-capacity battery
(alkaline, nickel-hydride) is used. If another battery is used,

Instructions on how to use the memory card
Be sure to format the memory card (see p.48) if you are using
a newly purchased memory card for the first time, if it contains
data that the camera cannot recognise, or if it contains images
captured with a different camera.
Turn off the camera power whenever the memory card is being
inserted or removed.
Repeated use of the memory card will eventually reduce the
memory card’s performance. Should this be the case, you will
need to purchase a new memory card. Wear and tear on the
memory card is not covered by the Samsung warranty.
The memory card is an electronic precision device.
Do not bend, drop or subject the memory card to any heavy
impact.
Do not store the memory card in an environment with strong
electronic or magnetic fields, e.g. near loud speakers or TV
receivers.
Please do not use or store in an environment where there are
extremes in temperature.
Do not allow the memory card to become dirty or to come into
contact with any liquid. Should this happen, clean the memory
card with a soft cloth.
Please keep the memory card in its case when not in use.
During and after periods of extended use, you may notice that the
memory card is warm. This is perfectly normal.
Do not use a memory card that is used in another digital camera.
To use the memory card in this camera, format the memory card
using this camera.
Do not use a memory card formatted by another digital camera or
memory card reader.
14
If the memory card is subjected to any of the following, the
recorded data may become corrupted :
- When the memory card is used incorrectly.
- If the power is switched off or the memory card is removed
while recording, deleting (formatting) or reading.
Samsung cannot be held responsible for lost data.
It is advisable to copy important data onto other media as back-up
e.g. floppy disks, hard disks, CD etc.
If there is insufficient memory available :
A [Memory Full] message will appear and the camera will not
operate. To optimise the amount of memory in the camera,
replace the memory card or delete unnecessary images stored
on the memory card.
Don't remove the memory card when the camera status lamp is
blinking as this may cause damage to data in the memory card.
Instructions on how to use the memory card
The camera can use SD/SDHC Memory Cards and MMC (Multi
Media Cards).
When using a 1GB SD memory, the specified shooting capacity will be
as follows. These figures are approximate as image capacities can be
affected by variables such as subject matter and memory card type.

when the subject in the centre is exposed correctly,
regardless of the back lighting.

: Exposure will be calculated based on an average of
the available light in the image area. However, the
calculation will be biased towards the centre of the

small object like a flower or insects.
Ä If the subject is not the centre of the focus area, do not use the
spot metering as this may result in an exposure error. In this
circumstance, it is better to use exposure compensation.

Important notes
Extremes in temperature may cause problems.
- If the camera is transferred from a cold to a warm and humid
environment, condensation can form on the delicate electronic
circuitry. If this occurs, turn the camera off and wait for at least
1 hour until all moisture is dispersed. Moisture built up can also
occur on the memory card. If this happens, turn off the
camera and remove the memory card. Wait until the moisture
has dispersed.
Caution on Using the Lens
- If the lens is subjected to direct sunlight, it could result in the
discoloration and deterioration of the image sensor.
- Take care not to get fingerprints or foreign substances on the
surface of the lens.
If the digital camera is not used for a long period, an electric
discharge can occur. It is a good idea to remove the battery and
the memory card if you do not intend using the camera for an
extended period of time.
If the camera is exposed to an electronic interference, it will turn
itself off to protect the memory card.
Camera Maintenance
- Use a soft brush (available from photo stores) to gently clean the
lens and LCD assemblies. If this does not work, lens-cleaning
paper with lens cleaning fluid can be used.
Clean the camera body with a soft cloth. Do not allow this

benzol, insecticide, thinners etc. This may damage the body
shell of the camera and also affect its performance. Rough
handling can damage the LCD monitor. Take care to avoid
damage and keep the camera in its protective carry case at all
times when not in use.
Do not attempt to disassemble or modify the camera.
Under certain conditions, static electricity can cause the flash unit
to fire. This is not harmful to the camera and is not a malfunction.
When images are uploaded or downloaded, the data transfer may
be affected by static electricity. In this case, disconnect and reconnect the USB cable before trying the transfer again.
Before an important event or going on a trip, you should check
the camera condition.
- Take a picture for testing the camera condition and prepare extra battery.
- Samsung cannot be held responsible for camera malfunctions.
If the digital camera is not used for a long period, the date and time
