Before Use
∫ Care for the camera
• Do not shake or cause impact to the
camera. The camera may not be
operated normally or recording of pictures
may be disabled, or the lens may be
damaged.
• Sand or dust may cause a malfunction
of the camera. When you use the
camera on a beach etc., take care so
that sand or dust does not get into the
camera.
• When you use the camera on a rainy day
or on a beach, take care so that water
does not get into the camera.
• If seawater splashes onto the camera,
wet a soft cloth with tap water, wring it
well, and use it to wipe the camera
body carefully. Then, wipe it again with
a dry cloth.
∫ About the LCD monitor/Viewfinder
• Do not press the LCD monitor strongly.
It may cause uneven colors on the LCD
monitor or a malfunction of the LCD
monitor.
• In a place with drastic temperature
changes, condensation may form on the
LCD monitor. Wipe it with a soft, dry cloth.
• If the camera is extremely cold when you
turn the camera on, the image on the
LCD monitor/Viewfinder is slightly darker
than usual at first. However, as the
internal temperature increases, it goes
back to the normal brightness.
Extremely high precision technology is
employed to produce the LCD monitor/
Viewfinder screen. The result is more
than 99.99% effective pixels with a
mere 0.01% of the pixels inactive or
always lit. However, this will not be
recorded on the pictures in the card.
∫ About the Lens
• Do not direct the lens to the sun or strong
light sources. It may cause not only a
malfunction of the camera but irreversible
damage to your eye.
4
• Do not press the lens strongly.
• Leaving the camera with the lens facing
the sun may cause a malfunction. Be
careful when you put the camera outside
or near a window.
∫ About Condensation
Condensation takes place when the
ambient temperature or humidity is
changed as follows:
Be careful of condensation since it causes
stains on the lens, fungus or malfunction.
(P109)
• When the camera is brought inside from
the cold to a warm room.
• When the camera is moved from outside
to an air-conditioned car.
• When cool wind from an air conditioner or
other is directly blown onto the camera.
• In humid places
∫ If you will not be using the camera for
a long time
• Store the battery in a cool and dry place
with a relatively stable temperature.
(Recommended temperature: 59oF – 77oF
(15oC – 25oC), Recommended humidity:
40% – 60%)
• Be sure to remove the battery and the
card from the camera.
• When the battery is left inserted in the
camera for a long time, discharge takes
place even if the camera is turned off. If
you leave the battery inserted for an
extended period of time, it will be
excessively discharged and it may
become unusable even after it is charged.
• To store the battery for a long period of
time, we recommend charging it once
every year and storing it again after you
completely use up the charged capacity.
• When you keep the camera in a closet or
a cabinet, we recommend storing it with
the desiccant (silica gel).

SD Memory Card
∫ About handling a card
Store precious data to your hard disk (P98).
The data on the card may be damaged or
lost due to electromagnetic waves, static
electricity, breakdown of this camera or a
defective card.
MultiMediaCard
• The reading/writing speed of a
MultiMediaCard is slower than an SD
Memory Card. When a MultiMediaCard is
used, the performance of certain features
may be slightly slower than advertised.
• After recording motion images using the
MultiMediaCard, the card access
indication may appear for a while, but this
is not a malfunction.

∫ Histogram
• A histogram is a graph that displays
brightness along the horizontal axis (black
to white) and the number of pixels at each
brightness level on the vertical axis.
• It allows the camera user to easily check
the way a picture is being exposed.
• It is very useful if manual adjustments of
the lens aperture and shutter speed are
available, especially in those situations
where automatic exposure may be difficult
due to uneven lighting. Using the
histogram feature will allow you to get the
best performance from the camera.
• When the values are concentrated to the
left A, the picture is under exposed.
• When the values in the histogram are
distributed evenly B, the exposure is
adequate and the brightness is
well-balanced.
• When the values are concentrated to the
right C, the picture is over exposed.

When recording a picture of people with a
composition as the above picture, you
cannot focus on the subject because it is
out of AF area in usual operation.
In this case,
1 Aim the AF area at the subject.
2 Press the shutter button halfway to fix
the focus and the exposure.

indication lights.
4 Keeping the focus and the exposure
fixed, move the camera as you compose

5 Press the shutter button fully.
∫ Correct posture for taking good
pictures
To take pictures without blurring:
• Hold the camera gently with both hands,
keep arms stationary at your side and
stand with your feet slightly apart.
• Make sure that camera shake does not
occur when pressing the shutter button
halfway.
• After pressing the shutter button, keep the
camera stationary until the picture
appears on the screen.
• In the following cases, keep the camera
stationary for a longer time.
– Slow sync./Red-eye reduction [

∫ Focusing
• The focus range is 0.98 feet (30 cm) – ¶
(Wide), 6.56 feet (200 cm) – ¶ (Tele).
• If you press the shutter button fully without
prefocusing, pictures may be blurry or
unfocused.
• When the focus indication is blinking, the
subject is not focused. Press the shutter
button halfway and focus on the subject
again.
• If the camera will not focus after a few
tries, turn it off and on and try again.
• In the following cases, the camera cannot
focus on subjects properly.
– When including both near and distant
subjects in a scene.
– When there is dirt or dust on the glass
between the lens and the subject.
– When there are illuminated or glittering
objects around the subject.
– When taking a picture in a dark place.
– When the subject is moving fast.
– When the scene has low contrast.
– When jitter occurs.
– When recording a very bright subject.
We recommend taking pictures using
manual focus (P65), prefocus (P66) or
AF/AE lock (P33). In dark places, the AF
assist lamp (P74) may turn on to focus on
the subject.
• Even if the focus indication appears and
the subject is focused, it is canceled when
you release the shutter button. Press the
shutter button halfway again.
34
∫ Jitter (camera shake)
• Be careful of jittering when pressing the
shutter button.
• When jitter could occur, the jitter alert 1
appears.
F2.8

• When the jitter alert appears, we
recommend using a tripod. If you cannot
use a tripod, be careful of how you hold
the camera. (P33)
∫ Exposure
• If you press the shutter button halfway
when the exposure is not adequate, the
indication of the aperture value and the
shutter speed turns red. (However, the
aperture value and the shutter speed do
not turn red when the flash is activated.)
• The brightness of the screen may differ
from that of recorded pictures. In
particular, when taking pictures in dark
places with slow shutter speed, the
subject looks dark on the screen, but the
actual picture is bright.
• When most of the subjects in the screen
are bright (e.g. blue sky on a clear day,
snowy field, etc.), the recorded pictures
may become dark. In this case,
compensate the exposure value on the
camera. (P43)

∫ Program shift
• When you press the shutter button, the
screen may become bright for a moment.
This function allows easy adjustment of
focus and the recorded picture will not be
affected.
• We recommend setting the clock again
before taking pictures. (P22)
• When the time for power save is set (P24),
the camera is automatically turned off if
you do not operate within the set time.
When operating the camera again, press
the shutter button or turn the camera off
and on.
• In some cases, if the distance between
the camera and the subject is beyond the
recordable range when you use the
camera, the picture may not be properly
focused even if the focus indication is lit.
In Program AE mode, you can change the
preset aperture value and the shutter
speed under the same exposure. This is
called Program shift.
By this function, you can make the
background more blurred (by decreasing
the aperture value) or record the moving
subject more dynamically (by setting to
slow shutter speed) in Program AE mode.
• Press the shutter button halfway and then
press the [EXPOSURE] button while the
aperture value and the shutter speed are
displayed on the screen (for 10 seconds).
Then press 2/1 to activate the Program

• The picture may have some distortion
(typical example: vertical straight line bent
outwards). This is due to the lens
aberration, which is common to some
extent with all photographic lenses.
Distortion may be more visible when using
a wider area of the zoom lens as you get
closer to the subject.
• When using the zoom lens at high
magnification, the quality of the picture
can be enhanced if a tripod is used. At
high magnification, even small
movements can cause a slight decrease
in picture sharpness.
• If you use the zoom function after focusing
on the subject, focus on the subject again.

pictures using the built-in flash according to
the recording condition.
∫ To open the flash
Press the [

OPEN
∫ To close the flash
Press the flash until it clicks.
: AUTO
The flash is automatically activated
according to the recording condition.
: AUTO/Red-eye reduction
The flash is automatically activated
according to the recording condition.
It reduces the red-eye phenomenon
(eyes of the subject appear red in the
picture) by triggering the flash at
1 second before actually recording the
picture.
• Use this when you take pictures of
people in low lighting conditions.
: Forced ON
The flash is activated every time
regardless of the recording condition.
• Use this when your subject is
back-lit or under fluorescent light.
: Forced ON/Red-eye reduction
• When you set to [PARTY] in scene
mode (P58), the flash mode is set to
Forced ON/Red-eye reduction.
• Be sure to close the flash when not in use.
• The flash setting is fixed to Forced OFF
[
] while the flash closes.
∫ Switching to the appropriate flash
setting
: Slow sync./Red-eye reduction
When you take a picture with a dark
background landscape, this feature
makes the shutter speed slow when the
flash is activated, so that the dark
background landscape will become
bright. Simultaneously it reduces the
red-eye phenomenon.
• Use this when taking pictures of
people in front of a dark background.
: Forced OFF
The flash is not activated in any
recording condition.
• Use this when taking pictures in
places where the use of the flash is
not permitted.

• When multiple AF areas (max. 9 areas)
light at the same time, the camera is
focusing on all the AF areas.
The focus position is not predetermined
because it is set to the position the
camera automatically determines at the
time of focusing. If you want to determine
the focus position to take pictures, switch
the AF mode to 1-area-focusing mode.
Continuous AF [CONT.AF]

AF Assist Lamp
[AF ASSIST LAMP]
SCN1 SCN2
Illuminating the subject with the AF assist
lamp allows the camera to focus on the
subject in low light conditions.
When you press the
shutter button halfway in
dark places or other
situations, an AF area
wider than usual appears
and the AF assist lamp 1
turns on.
ON
The AF assist lamp turns on under
low light conditions. In this time, the
AF assist lamp icon [
] appears
on the screen. The effective range
of the AF assist lamp is 4.92 feet
(1.5 m).
OFF The AF assist lamp does not turn
on.
• Be sure of the following points when the
AF assist lamp is in use.
– Do not look in to the AF assist lamp
closely.
– Detach the lens hood.
– Do not cover the AF assist lamp with
your fingers.
– The battery may be consumed faster
than usual.
• You cannot use the AF assist lamp in
[SCENERY], [NIGHT SCENERY],
[PANNING], [FIREWORKS] in scene
mode (P58) and when setting
[CONVERSION] (P79) to [ ] or [ ].
• When you do not want to use the AF
assist lamp (e.g. when you take a picture
of a subject in a dark place), set the [AF
ASSIST LAMP] to [OFF]. In this case, it
becomes difficult to focus on the subject.
74
• The AF area is set only to a point on the
center of the screen when the AF assist
lamp is turned on.
• A vignetting effect may appear on the
circumference of the AF assist lamp
because the AF assist lamp may be
obscured by the lens, however, this does
not cause a problem with the performance
of the camera.

prints is different from the setting,
however, this is not a malfunction.)
• The setting on the printer may have

setting on the printer.
• If the printer does not support date
printing, the date cannot be printed on the

For example, if you want to print a picture
4 times on 1 sheet of paper, set [PAGE
LAYOUT] to [
] and then set the
number of prints to 4 for the picture on
[NUM. OF PRINTS].
• When printing different pictures on
1 sheet of paper (only in DPOF
printing)
For example, if you want to print 4 different
pictures on 1 sheet of paper, set [PAGE
LAYOUT] to [
] and then set the
number of prints to 1 on [COUNT] in
DPOF print setting (P85) for each of the
4 pictures.
When printing with PictBridge
• Do not disconnect the USB connection
cable when the cable disconnection
warning icon [

Using the MC Protector/ND Filter
The MC protector (DMW-LMC72; optional)
is a transparent filter which affects neither
the colors nor the amount of light, so it can
always be used to protect the camera’s
lens.
The ND filter (DMW-LND72; optional)
reduces the amount of light to
approximately 1/8th (equal to adjusting the
aperture value 3 increments) without
affecting the color balance.
3 Attach the MC protector A or the
ND filter B.
1 Remove the lens cap and the lens
ring.
• Cap C (supplied with MC protector)
2 Attach the lens hood adaptor.
(P20)

• The lens cap supplied with the camera
cannot be attached to the MC protector or
the ND filter.
• You cannot attach the MC protector and
the ND filter at the same time.
• When taking pictures with the flash using
the MC protector or ND filter, vignetting
effect may occur.
• If the MC protector/ND filter are dropped,
they may be destroyed. Be careful not to
drop them when attaching them to the
camera.
• The cap supplied with MC protector can
also be used for the ND filter.

∫ Battery
The battery is a rechargeable lithium ion
battery. Its ability to generate power is
based upon the chemical reaction that
takes place inside it. This reaction is
susceptible to the surrounding temperature
and humidity, and, if the temperature is too
high or too low, the operating time of the
battery will be shorter.
When you go out, bring charged spare
batteries.
• Prepare batteries with the charger equal
to 3 to 4 times of the power for the desired
operating time. The operating time of the
battery may become shorter in low
temperatures such as skiing resorts.
• When you travel, be sure to prepare the
supplied charger to charge the battery on
the spot.
If you drop the battery accidentally,
check to see if the battery body and
terminals are damaged.
• Inserting damaged battery in the camera
may damage the camera.
After use, be sure to remove the card
and the battery or disconnect the plug
from the electrical outlet.
• Extremely high or low temperatures will
shorten the life of the battery.
• If the battery is kept in smoky or dusty
places, the terminals may rust and cause
malfunctions.
Dispose of an unusable battery.
• The battery has a limited life.
• Do not throw the battery into fire because
it may cause an explosion.
• An unusable battery should be discarded
in accordance with battery recycling laws.
For information you can call the RBRC
hotline at 1-800-822-8837.
Do not allow the battery terminals to
come in contact with metal objects
(such as necklaces, hairpins, etc.).
• This can result in a short circuit or heat
generation and, if you touch the battery in
this condition, you may be badly burned.
∫ Charger
• If you use the charger near a radio, radio
reception may be disturbed. Keep the
charger 3.28 feet (1 m) or more away from
radio.
• When the charger is in use, it may
generate whirring sounds. However, this is
not a malfunction.
• After use, be sure to disconnect the
charger from the electrical outlet. (If it is
left connected, a minute amount of current
is consumed.)
• Keep the terminal of the charger and
battery clean.
∫ Condensation (When the lens or the
Viewfinder is fogged up)
When condensation has taken place:
• Turn the camera off and leave the camera
in this condition for about 2 hours. When
the camera becomes close to the ambient
temperature, the condensation
disappears naturally.
• When you move the camera from a cold
place to a hot place, put the camera into
plastic bag and then take it out after the
temperature of the camera becomes close
to the ambient temperature to avoid
condensation.
If condensation has taken place, it causes
a malfunction.
Be careful to avoid condensation and take
proper measures when condensation
occurs.
