Refer to [POWER OFF] function (p.81).
We recommend batteries for digital camera (Within a year from the date of manufacture).
The batteries are listed below.

NOTICE
Important information about battery usage
- It is easy to buy the alkaline batteries, but the duration for using batteries varies in
accordance with the battery manufacturers or photography conditions.
- 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.
- We recommend high capacity ALKALINE batteries as manganese batteries cannot deliver
sufficient power.
- Low temperatures (below O˚C) can affect the performance of the batteries and you may
experience reduced battery life.
- Batteries will usually recover at normal temperatures.
- Do not use old and new batteries at the same time.
- During extended use of the camera, the camera body may become warm. This is perfectly normal.
- If you are planning to use this camera for long periods of time, it is advisable to use an AC adapter.
18
Connecting to Power
Using the AC power 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 with the correct specification for the camera.
Failure to do so may affect your warranty.
Using the Digimax Premium Power Pack ( Optional : SLB-1437 KIT )
The Digimax Premium Power Pack contains a rechargeable
internal Li-ion battery, a battery charger, a cigar jack for car and
an AC adapter for use with Digimax V4.
Using the Digimax battery pack ( Optional : SBP-3605, 5V)
The Digimax Battery Pack is a rechargeable external Li-ion
battery for use with most digital cameras.
These optional battery packs provide long lasting power and their operating performances are much
improved over Ni-MH and Alkaline batteries. This is due to the mass storage lithium ion cell.
Contact your local dealer or the nearest authorized Samsung camera service center to buy the optional
battery packs.
19
READY
If you have access to a mains supply, using an AC Adapter
allows the camera to be used for long periods of time.

RECORDING
Camera shake warning.
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.
Backlight compensated shots
When taking an outdoor shot, avoid facing the sun, as the image may be dark because of
the strong backlight. In backlight conditions, please use the exposure compensation in the
PROGRAM or A/S/M mode. (refer to page 51).
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).
- The subject is too dark.

SET:OK
INFORMATION
The higher the QUALITY setting, the better the final image will be. However, the high quality setting will
require more memory and therefore reduce the number of images you can store on the memory.
SUPER FINE is the highest quality and NORMAL is the lowest setting. Choose the setting
appropriate for your needs.
The image file is stored in *.jpg (Default). But, if you select TIFF in the quality menu, the
image file is stored in *.tif.
TIFF format is an uncompressed image file format for an expert. If you take a picture with the
TIFF file format, the number of available shots is decreased and the time for recording the
image file will be longer because the TIFF file size is bigger than the JPG file format.
When the TIFF file is being recorded to the memory card, a [PLEASE WAIT!] message will
be displayed on the LCD monitor.
This file format complies with DCF(Design rule for Camera File system).
Even if the camera should be restarted, the quality setting is maintained.
But, if you select TIFF quality, the quality setting will be changed to FINE after restarting the camera.
When using the 32MB SD memory card, the specified shooting capacity will be as follows.

INFORMATION
Continuous and AEB shots cannot be selected in the TIFF image quality format.
To take the continuous shot, the number of available shots must be more than 2 because
the minimum number of the continuous shots are 2. To take the AEB shots, the number of
available shots must be more than 3 because of the same reason.
Camera shake can be a problem when using the AEB shooting mode and it takes time to
store the AEB image to the memory. We recommend using a tripod.
You can select the camera’s sensitivity to light by selecting the ISO sub menu. The speed or specific

Important notes
101
PLAY
Your new Samsung camera is a precision instrument. Whilst it is designed to withstand general wear
and tear, there are some important points that will help you get maximum service and reliability from
your camera. The following should be avoided :
- Severe changes in temperature and humidity.
- Dust and dirt.
- 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 which are highly flammable materials.
- Pesticides, etc.
Sand can be particularly troublesome to cameras.
- Sand or other small particulates can cause severe malfunctions.
Ensure that there is no contact with sand or similar particles.
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.
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, the camera is not used for some time.
If the camera is exposed to electronic interference, it will turn itself off to protect the MEMORY CARD.
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. It contains delicate parts and there are high
voltage circuits that can cause electric shocks.
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.
Warning indicator
There are several warnings that may appear in the LCD display
