Connecting to a Power Source
There are two ways in which to provide the camera with power. You can use batteries or
alternatively, you can use an AC(100 ~ 250V) Adapter (DC 3.3V 2.0A).
We recommend using rechargeable battery (SLB-1137).
INFORMATION
Important information about battery usage
When the camera is not used, turn off the camera power.
Do not charge the non rechargeable batteries. It may cause an explosion.
Please remove the batteries if the camera will not be used for long periods.
Batteries can lose power over time and are prone to leaking if kept inside the camera.
Low temperatures (below 0°C) can affect the performance of the batteries 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.
If the camera is in PC mode, slide show, playing back a voice recording or playing back a
movie clip, it is recommended that you use an AC adapter.
14
Connecting to a Power Source
Using the AC power adapter (SAC-32, DC 3.3V 2.0A, optional)
If you have access to a mains supply, using an AC
Adapter (SAC-32, DC 3.3V 2.0A) allows the camera
to be used for long periods of time. Plug the adapter
into the connection point (DC IN 3.3V) on the
camera. Remove the batteries from the camera
when using an AC adapter.
DANGER
Always turn off the power before taking the AC adapter out of the mains supply.
As with all mains powered devices, safety is important. Ensure that neither the camera
nor adapter comes into contact with water or metallic materials.
Please ensure that you use an AC adapter (3.3V 2.0A) with the correct specification for
the camera. Failure to do so may affect your warranty.

Instructions on how to use the memory card
Maintenance of the memory card
Be sure to format the memory card (see p.91) if you are using a newly purchased memory 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 first the memory card by using this camera.
Do not use a memory card formatted by another digital camera or memory card reader.
Preserving the memory card data
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 : If you press the shutter button for the shot, a
[Card 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.

[ Lightly press the shutter button ]
[ Press the shutter button ]
The available recording time may vary depending on shooting conditions and camera
settings.
When the Flash Off or Slow synchro mode is selected in a low lighting condition, the camera
shake warning indicator (
) may appear on the LCD monitor. In this case, use a tripod,
support the camera on a solid surface or change the flash mode to flash shot mode.
Compensated shooting against the light :
Please do not take pictures to the sunlight direction. Taking a picture against the sun may
make the picture dark. To take a picture against the sun, please use the [Backlight] in the
scene shooting mode (see page 58), fill-in flash (see page 36), spot metering(see page 51), or
exposure compensation (see page 42).
Avoid obstructing the lens or the flash when you capture an image.
As there can be some differences between what is seen through the Viewfinder and the
resulting image when taken at a range closer than 1.5m, it is recommended that you use the
LCD monitor to compose these shots.
Using the LCD monitor extensively will drain the batteries.
We recommend turning off the LCD monitor and using the optical viewfinder as often as
possible in order to extend battery life.
Under certain conditions the auto focus system may not perform as expected.
- When photographing a subject that has little contrast.
- If the subject is highly reflective or shiny.
- If the subject is moving at high speed.
- When there is strong reflected light, or when the background is very bright.
- When the subject matter has only horizontal lines or the subject is very narrow
(such as a stick or flagpole).
- When the surroundings are dark.

INFORMATION
TIFF is the highest quality and Normal is the lowest setting.
Choose the setting appropriate for your needs.
The TIFF file format is for professionals and provides the best quality.
However, large file size reduces number of available pictures to take and increases
saving time to the memory card.
[Please Wait !] message is displayed while saving a TIFF file to the memory card.
If you select the TIFF file format, the double self-timer can’t be selected.
This file format complies with the DCF(Design rule for Camera File system).
JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group): JPEG is the image compression standard
developed by the Joint Photographic Experts Group. This type of compression is most
commonly used for compressing photos and graphics because it can compress the files
efficiently without damaging the data.

Important notes
Be sure to observe the following precautions!
This unit contains precision electronic components. Do not use or store this unit in the
following locations.
- Areas exposed to severe changes in temperature and humidity.
- Areas exposed to dust and dirt.
- Areas exposed to direct sunlight or the inside of a vehicle in hot weather.
- Environments where there is high magnetism or excessive vibration.
- Areas with high explosives or highly flammable materials.
Do not let the unit come into contact with dust, vinyl goods, or chemicals, such as
insecticides, for an extended period of time.
Sand can be particularly troublesome to cameras.
- Do not let sand get inside the unit when using it on beaches, coastal dunes, or other areas
where there is lots of sand.
- Doing so may result in failure or may permanently render the unit unusable.
Handling the camera
- Never drop the camera or subject it to severe shocks or vibrations.
- This camera is not waterproof. To avoid dangerous electrical shocks, never hold or operate
the camera with wet hands.
- If you use this camera in wet places, such as beach or pool, do not let water or sand get
inside the camera.
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 build up can also occur in the memory
card. If this happens, turn off the camera and remove the memory card. Wait until the
moisture has dispersed.

Important notes
Caution on Using the Lens
- If the lens is subjected to direct sunlight, it could result in discoloration and deterioration of
the image sensor.
- Pay attention 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 batteries 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 camera to come into contact with
solvent materials such as 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 re-connect 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 batteries.
- Samsung cannot be held responsible for camera malfunctions.
