Flash Memory
• Dead batteries are susceptible to leakage, which can cause serious
damage to your camera. Remove batteries from the camera as
soon as you notice they are dead.
The camera features flash memory for storage of images. Flash
memory does not require electrical power to store data, so image
data is retained in memory even when you turn camera power off. If
batteries go dead, simply load a set of new batteries or connect the
AC adaptor and you will be able to view images in camera memory.
• The batteries that power this camera normally become warm when
they lose power. This does not indicate malfunction.
Standard Battery Life
Auto Power Off
The following shows standard battery life of batteries when the camera is used without interruption under normal temperatures. Lower
temperatures can cause shortening of the standard battery life.
Power automatically turns off whenever you do not perform any camera operation for a period of time. Power turns off after about two
minutes in the Record Mode or after about five minutes in the Playback Mode.

Caution
• Be sure to switch power off before connecting or disconnecting the
adaptor.
• Always turn camera power off before disconnecting the AC adaptor,
even if the camera has batteries installed. If you don't, the camera
will turn off automatically when you disconnect the AC adaptor.
Even so, you run the risk of damaging the camera whenever you
disconnect the AC adaptor without first turning power off.
AC Adaptor precautions
• Never use an electrical outlet whose
voltage is outside the rating marked
on the camera. Doing so can create
the danger of fire or electrical shock.
Use only the optional AC adaptor
specified for this camera.
• Should the cord of the AC adaptor
become damaged (exposed internal
wiring or shorts), request a replacement from an authorized CASIO
service provider. A damaged AC
adaptor cord creates the danger of
fire or electrical shock.
• The AC adaptor may become warm to the touch after extended periods of use. This is normal and is not cause for alarm.
• After use turn off the power switch of the camera and unplug adaptor from the AC outlet.

Recording Images
Operation
Caution
• Never open the battery compartment cover, disconnect the
AC adaptor from the camera or unplug it from the wall
socket while the “WAIT” message is on the LCD. Doing so
will not only make storage of the current image impossible, it
can also corrupt other image data already stored in camera
memory.
Infrared Light
Infrared light generated by a flash or other source can create image
color problems, such as red areas being recorded as green. Such
color problems will show up in the LCD while you are composing the
image.
Shooting Images Outdoors
Strong direct or reflected sunlight can cause recorded images to take
on a greenish tinge. This is due to the characteristics of the camera’s
charge-coupled device (CCD), and it does not indicate malfunction of
the camera. One way you can try to minimize this problem is to set
the aperture to [●] (F8).
How to avoid hand movement…
Any hand movement when you press the shutter button can causes
blurring of the recorded image. Note the following points on avoiding
hand movement.
• Make sure there is no excessive movement of the image of the object on the LCD.
Changing the Lens Orientation
• Use a tripod whenever possible when recording images in dim lighting. The camera automatically adjusts shutter speed in accordance
with the brightness of the object whose image is being recorded.
Shutter speed is quite slow for dimly lit objects, increasing the possibility of blurring caused by hand movement.
The lens of the camera is built into a lens body that is designed to
rotate. This means you can change the angle of the lens without moving the rest of the camera.
Fluorescent Lighting
Fluorescent lighting actually flickers at a frequency that cannot be
detected by the human eye. When using the camera indoors under
such lighting, you may experience some brightness or color problems
with recorded images. The actual extent of the problems depends on
what cycle of the fluorescent light’s flicker is occurring when the camera’s shutter actually releases. For best results, use a commercially
available video lights.
