Shooting tips
When you are unsure of how to take a picture
that you envision, refer to the information below.
When objects are at different
distances
Focusing
“Focusing on the subject”
● Taking a picture of a subject not in the center
Fast-moving object
of the screen
After focusing on an object at the same distance
as the subject, compose the shot, and take the
picture.
Pressing the shutter button halfway (p. 15)
AF lock (p. 18)
● Set [AF MODE] (p. 29) to [iESP]
● Taking a picture of subjects where autofocus
is difficult
In the following cases, after focusing on an object
(by pressing the shutter button halfway down) with
high contrast at the same distance as the subject,
compose the shot, and take the picture.
Subjects with low contrast
When extremely bright objects
appear in the center of the
screen
Object with no vertical lines*1
*1
58
It is also effective to compose the shot by holding
the camera vertically to focus, and then returning to
the horizontal position to take the picture.
EN
The subject is not in the
center of the frame
● Taking pictures using exposure compensation
Camera shake
“Taking pictures (or movies) without
camera shake”
● Taking pictures using [IMAGE STABILIZER]
(p. 30)
When a picture is taken of a shadowy subject, the
CCD*1 shifts to correct for camera shake even if
the ISO speed is not increased. This function is
also effective when taking pictures at a high zoom
magnification.
*1
A device that takes light received through the
lens and converts it into electric signals.
● Shooting movies using [DIS MOVIE MODE]
(p. 30)
● Taking picture with [j SPORT] (p. 31)
Since you can take pictures with a high shutter
speed by setting [j SPORT], it’s also effective for
blurry subjects.
● Taking pictures at a high ISO sensitivity
If a high ISO sensitivity is selected, pictures can
be taken at a high shutter speed even at locations
where a flash cannot be used.
[ISO] (p. 28)
Exposure (brightness)
“Taking pictures with the right
brightness”
● Taking pictures of a subject against a backlight
A face against the backlight is brightened.
[SHADOW ADJ] (p. 30)
● Taking pictures using [FACE DETECT] for
(p. 21)
Adjust the brightness while viewing the screen
for taking the picture. Normally, taking pictures of
white subjects (such as snow) results in images
that are darker than the actual subject. Use the
F button to adjust in the positive (+) direction
to express whites as they appear. When taking
pictures of black subjects, on the other hand, it is
effective to adjust in the negative (–) direction.
Color hue
“Taking pictures with colors at the same
shade as they appear”
● Taking pictures by selecting [WB] (p. 28)
Best results in most environments can normally
be obtained with the AUTO setting, but for some
subjects, you should try experimenting with
different settings. (This is especially true for
sunshade under a clear sky, mixed natural and
artificial light settings, and so on.)
Image quality
“Taking sharper pictures”
● Taking pictures with the optical zoom
Avoid using [DIGITAL ZOOM] (p. 29) to take
pictures.
● Taking pictures at a low ISO sensitivity
If the picture is taken with a high ISO sensitivity,
noise (small colored spots and color unevenness
that were not in the original image) can occur, and
the image can appear grainy.
[ISO] (p. 28)
[AF MODE] (p. 29)
Appropriate exposure is obtained for a face
against the backlight, and the face is brightened.
● Taking pictures using [n] for [ESP/n] (p. 29)
The picture can be taken based on the brightness
at the center of the monitor, so it’s not affected by
the light in the background.
● Taking pictures using [FILL IN] (p. 21) flash
A subject against a backlight is brightened.
● Taking pictures of a white beach or snow
scene
Set the mode to [q BEACH & SNOW],
[a SNOW] (p. 31)
Panorama
“Taking pictures so that the frames are
stitched smoothly”
● A tip for panoramic shooting
Taking pictures by pivoting with the camera at the
center prevents shifting of the image. When taking
pictures of close objects in particular, pivoting with
the lens end at the center produces favorable
results.
[N PANORAMA] (p. 32)

Using an AC adapter
An AC adapter is useful for time-consuming
tasks such as image downloads to a computer
or when running a slideshow for a long period of
time. To use an AC adapter for this camera, the
multi-adapter (CB-MA1/accessory) is required.
Do not use any other AC adapter with this
camera.
Using your charger and AC
adapter abroad
• The charger and AC adapter can be used in
most home electrical sources within the range
of 100 V to 240 V AC (50/60Hz) around the
world. However, depending on the country
or area you are in, the AC wall outlet may be
shaped differently and the charger and AC
adapter may require a plug adapter to match
the wall outlet. For details, ask at your local
electrical shop or travel agent.
• Do not use travel voltage converters as they
could damage your charger and AC adapter.
Using an xD-Picture Card
A card (and internal memory) also corresponds
to the film that records images in a film camera.
Otherwise, the recorded images (data) can be
erased, and retouching is also available with
the use of a computer. Cards can be removed
from the camera and exchanged, but this is
not possible with the internal memory. Use of
larger capacity cards enables you to take more
pictures.

fire. Do not use the charger or AC adapter if it is
covered (such as a blanket). This could cause
overheating, resulting in fire.
• Handle the camera with care to avoid getting a
low-temperature burn.
• When the camera contains metal parts,
overheating can result in a low-temperature
burn. Pay attention to the following:
• When used for a long period, the camera will
get hot. If you hold on to the camera in this
state, a low-temperature burn may be caused.
• In places subject to extremely cold
temperatures, the temperature of the camera’s
body may be lower than the environmental
temperature. If possible, wear gloves when
handling the camera in cold temperatures.
• Be careful with the strap.
• Be careful with the strap when you carry the
camera. It could easily catch on stray objects
and cause serious damage.
• Do not touch the metallic parts of the camera
for a long period of time at low temperatures.
• This may damage your skin. At low
temperatures, handle the camera while wearing
gloves.

Battery Handling Precautions
Follow these important guidelines to
prevent batteries from leaking, overheating,
burning, exploding, or causing electrical
shocks or burns.
DANGER
• The camera uses a lithium ion battery specified
by Olympus. Charge the battery with the specified
charger. Do not use any other chargers.
• Never heat or incinerate batteries.
• Take precautions when carrying or storing
batteries to prevent them from coming into contact
with any metal objects such as jewelry, pins,
fasteners, etc.
• Never store batteries where they will be
exposed to direct sunlight, or subjected to high
temperatures in a hot vehicle, near a heat source,
etc.
• To prevent causing battery leaks or damaging their
terminals, carefully follow all instructions regarding
the use of batteries. Never attempt to disassemble
a battery or modify it in any way, solder, etc.
• If battery fluid gets into your eyes, flush your eyes
immediately with clear, cold running water and
seek medical attention immediately.
• Always store batteries out of the reach of small
children. If a child accidentally swallows a battery,
seek medical attention immediately.
WARNING
• Keep batteries dry at all times.
• To prevent batteries from leaking, overheating,
or causing a fire or explosion, use only batteries
recommended for use with this product.
• Insert the battery carefully as described in the
operating instructions.
• If rechargeable batteries have not been recharged
within the specified time, stop charging them and
do not use them.
• Do not use a battery if it is cracked or broken.
• If a battery leaks, becomes discolored or
deformed, or becomes abnormal in any other way
during operation, stop using the camera.
• If a battery leaks fluid onto your clothing or skin,
remove the clothing and flush the affected area
with clean, running cold water immediately. If
the fluid burns your skin, seek medical attention
immediately.
• Never subject batteries to strong shocks or
continuous vibration.
•
68
EN
CAUTION
• Before loading, always inspect the battery carefully
for leaks, discoloration, warping, or any other
abnormality.
• The battery may become hot during prolonged
use. To avoid minor burns, do not remove it
immediately after using the camera.
• Always unload the battery from the camera before
storing the camera for a long period.
Caution for Usage Environment
• To protect the high-precision technology contained
in this product, never leave the camera in the
places listed below, no matter if in use or storage:
• Places where temperatures and/or humidity
are high or go through extreme changes.
Direct sunlight, beaches, locked cars, or near
other heat sources (stove, radiator, etc.) or
humidifiers.
• In sandy or dusty environments.
• Near flammable items or explosives.
• In wet places, such as bathrooms or in the rain.
When using products with weatherproof designs,
read their manuals as well.
• In places prone to strong vibrations.
• Never drop the camera or subject it to severe
shocks or vibrations.
• When mounted on a tripod, adjust the position of
the camera with the tripod head. Do not twist the
camera.
• Do not touch electric contacts on cameras.
• Do not leave the camera pointed directly at the
sun. This may cause lens or shutter curtain
damage, color failure, ghosting on the CCD, or
may possibly cause fires.
• Do not push or pull severely on the lens.
• Before storing the camera for a long period,
remove the batteries. Select a cool, dry location
for storage to prevent condensation or mold from
forming inside the camera. After storage, test the
camera by turning it on and pressing the shutter
button to make sure that it is operating normally.
• Always observe the operating environment
restrictions described in the camera’s manual.
Battery Handling Precautions
• This camera uses a lithium ion battery specified by
Olympus. Do not use any other type of battery.
• If the battery’s terminals get wet or greasy, camera
contact failure may result. Wipe the battery well
with a dry cloth before use.
• Always charge a battery when using it for the first
time, or if it has not been used for a long period.
• When operating the camera with battery power
at low temperatures, try to keep the camera and
spare battery as warm as possible. A battery that
has run down at low temperatures may be restored
after it is warmed at room temperature.
• The number of pictures you can take may vary
depending on the shooting conditions or battery.
• Before going on a long trip, and especially before
traveling abroad, purchase extra batteries. A
recommended battery may be difficult to obtain
while traveling.
• Please recycle batteries to help save our planet’s
resources. When you throw away dead batteries,
be sure to cover their terminals and always
observe local laws and regulations.
LCD Monitor
• Do not push the monitor forcibly; otherwise the
image may become vague, resulting in a playback
mode failure or damage to the monitor.
• A strip of light may appear on the top/bottom of the
monitor, but this is not a malfunction.
• When a subject is viewed diagonally in the
camera, the edges may appear zigzagged on the
monitor. This is not a malfunction; it will be less
noticeable in playback mode.
• In places subject to low temperatures, the LCD
monitor may take a long time to turn on or its
color may change temporarily. When using the
camera in extremely cold places, it is a good idea
to occasionally place it in a warm place. An LCD
monitor exhibiting poor performance due to low
temperatures will recover in normal temperatures.
• The LCD used for the monitor is made with
high-precision technology. However, black spots
or bright spots of light may appear constantly on
the LCD monitor. Due to its characteristics or the
angle at which you are viewing the monitor, the
spot may not be uniform in color and brightness.
This is not a malfunction.
