Key Features
* The illustrations shown in this manual may differ from the actual items.
Wide-angle zoom lens can capture wideangle pictures
This camera has a compact body only
25 mm thick, featuring a 24-72 mm* 3×
optical zoom lens that covers a wide range
of shooting. The wide-angle lens is great for
capturing buildings, landscape scenes,
group photos, and more.
*Equivalent to that on a 35 mm camera
Camera shake correction function
reduces blurring (P.137)
The camera comes with a camera shake
correction function to allow you to take
clearer pictures with minimized blurring
even indoors, at night and in other
situations where camera shake may occur.
Aperture priority mode, manual
exposure mode, and program shift mode
for fine-tuned adjustments
You can manually set the aperture value
and shutter speed. This small, compact,
and lightweight camera has advanced
modes that rival those of digital SLR
cameras.
CCD with approx. 12.1 effective megapixels
and RAW mode capable of recording up to
5 consecutive shots (P.105)
The camera has a CCD with approx. 12.1 million
effective pixels to ensure high-resolution images.
With RAW mode, you can also use the camera’s
image processing engine to save the raw picture
data as a DNG file (up to five consecutive
images) before converting it to JPEG format.
This makes it possible to perform high quality
image processing on a computer with minimal
image quality deterioration (requires image
editing software that supports DNG files). When
taking pictures in RAW mode, a JPEG file based
on the DNG file is recorded at the same time.
5
Macro shooting (P.49) at 1 cm, plus close-up
flash shooting (P.51) at 20 cm for wide-angle
and 15 cm for telephoto shots
The camera is equipped with close-up
functions that allow you to take pictures at a
distance of only 1 cm for the wide-angle side
and 4 cm for the telephoto side, from the
front of the lens to the subject.
Since the flash supports distances of only 20
cm for the wide-angle side and 15 cm for the
telephoto side, you can also take clear
macro shots even under low light conditions.
Variety of accessories for greater
creative expression (P.19)
You can use the camera with a 0.79× wide
conversion lens (19-mm*) or 1.88× tele
conversion lens (135-mm*), according to your
shooting purpose (use with the hood &
adapter). Enhance your photographic
experience with a variety of optional
accessories, including an external viewfinder,
cable switch, and self retaining lens cap.
*Equivalent to that on a 35 mm camera
Electronic level function to help keep the
image level (P.67)
The camera is equipped with an electronic
level function that is useful for keeping the
image level when taking pictures of scenery
or buildings. The camera uses a level
indicator displayed on the picture display
and a level sound to let you know whether
the image is level.
Up-down dial and ADJ. lever for faster
and easier operations (P.26)
You can use the up-down dial and ADJ.
lever to quickly and easily make the
shooting settings and various menu
operations.
You can also press the ADJ. lever to easily
select ADJ. mode (P.72) and make various
shooting settings.
6
Easily customize your favorite shooting
settings with my settings mode (P.99)
You can customize three groups of settings,
and then turn the mode dial to MY1/MY2/
MY3 to shoot with those registered settings.
Fn (Function) buttons enables easy
mode switching with a single push of the
button (P.195)
When a function is assigned to either of the
two Fn (Function) buttons, you can perform
the assigned function, such as switching to
JPEG mode or RAW mode, switching to auto
focus or manual focus, or switching to color or
black-and-white mode, simply by pressing the
Fn1/Fn2 button. You can also assign various
other shooting settings to the Fn1/Fn2 button.
Compatibility with AAA batteries
eliminates concerns about the batteries
running out while you’re traveling (P.32)
In addition to the supplied large-capacity
rechargeable battery for long periods of
shooting and playback, the camera is also
compatible with AAA alkaline batteries,
AAA Oxyride batteries, and AAA nickelmetal hydride batteries. This eliminates
concerns about the batteries running out
while you’re traveling.
Irodio Photo & Video Studio software for
browsing, viewing, and editing still
images and movies (P.221)
This software enables you to view, organize,
and perform simple editing (supporting DNG
file format) of shot images. You can also use
the video editor function to create movies using
still images, video clips, audio, and music files.
Direct printing without the use of a
computer (P.177)
A direct print-compatible printer can be
connected to the camera with the USB
cable to directly transfer images to the
printer. This allows for easy printing without
using a computer.
You can also print reports.

About the Battery
Rechargeable Battery DB-60 (supplied)
This is a lithium-ion battery. It is economical
because you can recharge it using the battery
charger and use it over and over again.
The rechargeable battery needs to be charged
before use. The battery is not charged at the time of purchase.
Note --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------You can also use the following types of batteries.
• AAA Alkaline Batteries (available in stores)
These batteries are easily obtainable. However, in a low-temperature environment,
the storage capacity of shots will decrease. Warm the batteries before use. It is
recommended that you use the rechargeable battery when using the camera for a
long time.
• AAA Oxyride Batteries (available in stores)
These are not rechargeable batteries, but they can be used longer in a digital camera
than AAA alkaline batteries.
• AAA Nickel-metal Hydride Batteries (available in stores)
These batteries are economical because you can recharge and reuse them over and
over again. For charging the batteries, please use a battery charger that is
compatible with the batteries.
Storage capacity of shots --------------------------------------------------------------------• Approximate storage capacity of shots you can take
Battery Type
Rechargeable Battery (DB-60)
AAA Alkaline Batteries (available in stores)
Storage capacity of Shots
(Normal Mode)
Approx. 350*1
Approx. 45*2
Approximately 350 shots can be taken when using the LCD viewfinder.
*2
Approximately 50 shots can be taken when using the LCD viewfinder.
• Based on CIPA standard (Temperature: 23 degrees Celsius, picture display on, 30
seconds between shots, 50% flash usage, turning the power off after each 10 shots).
• The storage capacity of shots when using AAA alkaline batteries is based on the use
of Panasonic AAA alkaline batteries.
• The storage capacity 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. For long periods of use, it is recommended that you carry spare batteries.
Caution----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------• The nickel-metal hydride batteries available in stores are not factory-charged.
Charge them before use.
• The nickel-metal hydride batteries may be inert and consequently may not supply
power immediately after they are purchased or when left unused for more than a
month. In such a case, recharge the batteries two or three times before use. The
batteries self-discharge with time even if the camera is not used, so recharge them
before use.
• The life of an AAA alkaline battery 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.
• Other batteries, such as manganese dry cell and Ni-Cd batteries, cannot be used.
• The battery may become very hot immediately after operation. Turn the camera off
and leave it to cool down sufficiently before removing the battery.
• Please remove the battery if you are not going to use the camera for a long period of
time.
• When using a lithium-ion battery, use only the specified rechargeable lithium-ion
battery (DB-60). Do not use other rechargeable lithium-ion batteries.
If you are using the camera for the first time, read this section.

33
SD Memory Card (available in stores)
If you are using the camera for the first time, read this section.
34
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 approx. 54 MB.
To record a lot of still images or movies at high resolutions, use a
high-capacity SD memory card.
Formatting -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Before using a new SD memory card, be sure to format it with this camera. If an error
message such as [Card Error] is displayed when an SD memory card is loaded in the
camera or the card has been used with a computer or other digital camera, you must
format the card with this camera prior to use. (GP.186)
Where images are recorded------------------------------------------------------------------When no SD memory card is loaded, the camera records images to the internal
memory; when an SD memory card is loaded, it records images to the SD memory
card.
When no SD memory card is loaded
When an SD memory card is loaded
Records to the internal memory
Records to the SD memory card
Caution----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------• If an SD memory card is loaded, the camera does not record to the internal memory,
even if the card is full.
• Take care not to get the contacts of the card dirty.
Write-protecting your images ----------------------------------------------------------------
Note --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------• For information on switching between the SD memory card and internal memory
during playback, see P.56.
• Movie recording time and the storage capacity of still pictures varies depending on
the SD memory card. (GP.248)
• You can copy images stored in the internal memory to an SD memory card.
(GP.166)
• SDHC memory card (16 GB) can also be used.
If you are using the camera for the first time, read this section.
Move the write-protection switch on the SD memory card to
LOCK to prevent your still images from being accidentally
erased or the card from being formatted. If you unlock the card
(by returning the switch to its original position), it is once again
possible to erase images and format the card.
It is recommended to move the write-protection switch to LOCK
when you have some important data recorded.
Note that you cannot shoot images on a locked card because no
data can be recorded to the card. Unlock the card before shooting.

of the direction in which the camera is tilted.
With [Level Setting] set to [Disp + Snd]:
The level indicator appears on the picture display. When the
camera is level, the level indicator becomes green, indicating that
the scale is in the middle, and the level sound is continually emitted
at a set interval. When the camera is tilted, the mark on the level
indicator becomes orange, and indicates the opposite side of the
direction in which the camera is tilted.
With [Level Setting] set to [Sound]:

If you are using the camera for the first time, read this section.
70
When Histogram is on, a histogram
appears in the lower right corner on the
picture display. A histogram is a graph
indicating the number of pixels on the
vertical axis and the brightness on the
horizontal axis (from left to right,
shadows (dark areas), midtones, and
highlights (bright areas)).
By using the histogram, you can determine the brightness of an
image without being affected by the brightness around the picture
display. This also helps you correct for areas that are overly bright
or dark.
If the histogram has only peaks on the
right side without anything else, this
picture is over-exposed with too many
pixels only for highlight sections.
If the histogram has only peaks on the
left side without anything else, this
picture is under-exposed with too
many pixels only for shadow sections.
Correct the exposure to an appropriate
level.
Note --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------• The histogram displayed on the picture display is for reference only.
• After shooting, you can correct the brightness and contrast of the image by adjusting
the histogram. (GP.169)
• Depending on the shooting conditions (use of the flash, dark surrounding light, etc.),
the exposure level indicated in the histogram may not correspond to the brightness
of the shot image.
• Exposure compensation has its limitation. It does not necessarily achieve the best
possible result.
• A histogram with peaks in the center may not necessarily provide the best result to
suit your particular requirements.
For example, an adjustment is required if you want to underexpose or overexpose
the image.
• For information on how to correct the exposure compensation, see P.138.

Note ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------• Depending on the set aperture value, the image may be overexposed and the [!AE]
symbol will appear when shooting in particularly bright places. In this case, select a
higher aperture value (closing the aperture), or set [Auto Aper. Shift] to [On]
(GP.149). When [Auto Aper. Shift] is set to [On], in aperture priority mode, the
camera will automatically raise the aperture value so the correct exposure can be
obtained.
• The aperture opens or closes once the shutter release button is pressed.
• Although the range of fluctuation for the set aperture value is kept to a minimum, there
may be some fluctuation in the aperture value depending on the zoom position.
• Depending on the aperture value, some shutter speeds may not be available.

Various Shooting Functions
Setting the mode dial to A (aperture priority mode) allows you to
manually set the aperture value. Once the aperture value is set, the
camera automatically sets the optimal shutter speed.
Selecting a lower aperture value (opening the aperture) allows you
to blur the background and capture a sharp portrait of the
foreground subject. Selecting a higher aperture value (closing the
aperture) allows you to capture an image with everything from the
foreground to the background in focus.
The aperture values that can be selected differ according to the
zoom position.

• The number of images that can be stored in the internal memory or SD memory card
depends on the [Pic Quality/Size] setting. (GP.248)
• There are three picture quality modes: Normal mode (N), Fine mode (F), and RAW
mode.
Normal mode:
The compression ratio is high, resulting in a small file. Normally,
shooting is done in this mode.
Fine mode:
The compression ratio is low, resulting in a large file, but the
picture quality is better than in Normal.
RAW mode:
The raw image data is saved as a RAW format file (.DNG file).
A JPEG file is also recorded at the same time. This allows you
to use image editing software to edit the image while retaining
the high quality at the time the image was shot.
Shooting with RAW mode ---------------------------------------------------------------Normally, a shot image is processed and compressed by the camera and then saved as
a small JPEG file.
When shooting in RAW mode, shot images are not processed by the camera. The raw
data loaded from the camera’s sensor is stored in the DNG file created when shooting in
RAW mode. A DNG file is a raw image format designed by Adobe Systems. You can use
image editing software compatible with the DNG file format to edit the near-original
image data on a computer. You can use the provided Irodio Photo & Video Studio to
perform simple editing of DNG files on Windows. However, you cannot use the Irodio
Photo & Video Studio to edit DNG files on a Macintosh. Use a commercially-available
software that can edit DNG files.
When shooting in RAW mode, note the following:
• RAW mode cannot be used with certain shooting functions. Please see the
restrictions listed for individual functions.
• No date is added to the DNG file even if [Date Imprint] is set. The date is added to the
JPEG file recorded at the same time as the DNG file.
• [Image Settings] settings on the shooting menu apply only to the JPEG file recorded
at the same time.
• You can use [RAW/JPEG Setting] on the setup menu to change the picture quality and
image size of the JPEG recorded at the same time. (GP.212)

Changing the Sensitivity
(ISO Setting)
1
Various Shooting Functions
ISO sensitivity indicates how sensitive film is to light. A greater
value means higher sensitivity. High sensitivity is suitable for
shooting an object in a dark place or a fast-moving object while
minimizing blurring.
You can select from the following ISO settings:
Auto, Auto-Hi, ISO 64, ISO 100, ISO 200, ISO 400, ISO 800,
ISO 1600
When ISO setting is set to [Auto], the camera automatically changes
the sensitivity according to the distance, brightness, macro settings,
and quality/size. Usually, use the camera in the [Auto] mode.
When the ISO setting is set to [Auto-Hi] (auto high sensitivity), the
sensitivity is automatically set according to the shooting conditions,
but the upper limit of the sensitivity can be set higher than in [Auto].
When shooting a dark subject, the shutter speed set in [Auto-Hi] is
faster than in [Auto], which may reduce camera shake or blurring of
the subject. Set the maximum sensitivity for [Auto-Hi] in the setup
menu. (GP.194)
If you do not want to allow the camera to change the ISO sensitivity,
select an ISO setting other than [Auto] or [Auto-Hi].
To change the setting, use the shooting menu or the ADJ. lever. This section explains easy
ways to change the setting with the ADJ. lever. (GP.72)
To use the shooting menu, see “Using the Menu”. (GP.103).

Close the flash cover (GP.23).
3
Turn on the camera, turn the mode dial to A or M, and
set the aperture value (GP.87, 89).
4
Set the ISO sensitivity to a value other than [Auto]
(GP.146).
5
Turn on the external flash, turn its mode to Auto, and
set the aperture value and ISO sensitivity to the same
values on the camera.
With the camera and external
flash powered off, attach the
external flash to the hot shoe.
• Be sure to turn off the external flash before detaching the external
flash from the camera.
Caution-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------• Camera shake may occur when using slower shutter speeds.
• When using a commercially-available external flash, make sure the flash has the
following specifications.
• It must not have a signal terminal other than an X contact.
• The polarity of the X contact must be positive (+).
• The voltage of the X contact must not exceed 20V.
• You cannot use the internal flash when an external flash is attached as this can cause
injury or damage.
• You cannot use the LCD viewfinder when an external flash is attached.
• Irrespective of flash setting, a flash ON signal is output to the X contact of the hot shoe.
To stop an external flash, use a switch on the flash.
• Exposure may not be appropriate even when the aperture value and ISO sensitivity
of the external flash are the same as those of the camera. If so, change the aperture
value and ISO sensitivity of the flash.
• Use an external flash with a lighting angle that covers the angle of view of the shooting
lens.
• Use an external flash basically at a distance where the internal flash is not adequate
(long distance). Shooting at a short distance with an external flash may result in overexposure of the subject.

• This product was manufactured for use in the country in which it was
purchased. The warranty is only valid in the country in which the camera
was purchased.
• 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.
• While you are carrying the camera, be careful not to hit it against other
objects. Take special care to not hit the lens and picture display.
• Firing the flash consecutively may heat the firing unit. Do not fire it
consecutively more than necessary.
• Do not touch the flash and keep foreign objects away from the firing unit.
Doing so can cause burns and fires.
• Do not fire the flash near eyes. It could cause visual impairment (particularly

• If the picture display or panel is exposed to sunlight, they may become
washed out and images may become hard to view.
• The picture display 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.
• Do not forcefully press the surface of the picture display.
• 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. If condensation occurs, remove the battery and
memory card, and wait until the moisture has dried before using the camera.
• To avoid damaging the connectors, do not put any objects into the camera’s
microphone or speaker holes.
• Do not get the camera wet. Do not operate the camera with wet hands. This
can result in malfunction or an electrical shock.
