English
HINT
i Charging takes approximately 2 hr. 30 min.
FOR AMERICAN USERS:
i Use a UL Listed, 1.8-3m (6-10ft), Type SPT-2 or NiSPT-2, AWG No.18
power supply cord, rated for 125V 7A, with a non-polarized NEMA 1-15P
plug rated for 125V 15A.
Charging the battery pack
Be sure to fully charge the supplied or separately sold battery pack before
using it in your camera. For charging the battery pack, use the supplied
charger.
Charge the battery pack if it is being used for the first time, and recharge it
whenever the remaining charge is low (see “CHECKING THE REMAINING
BATTERY CHARGE” on page 116).
Does the battery pack feel hot?
i During charging, the charger and battery pack will be warm. This is normal
and does not indicate a malfunction.
If there is interference to your TV or radio during charging...
i Move the battery pack and charger further away from the TV or radio.
Ambient temperature during charging
i It is recommended that the ambient temperature during charging be
between about 10°C and 35°C (50°F and 95°F). Due to the characteristics
of the battery pack, at temperatures below 0°C (32°F), it may not be
possible to sufficiently charge it.
i When the battery pack temperature is high, the safety function may be
activated and halt charging.
Charge a battery pack in the following cases
i A battery pack which has not been used for a long time
i Newly purchased battery pack

Problem with the battery pack or battery pack charger
i Immediately remove the battery pack from the charger.
i Do not use an abnormal battery pack. (The usable life of
the battery pack has probably expired.)
CAUTION
Do not charge the battery pack immediately after the camera has been
in continuous use for a long time
i The battery pack becomes hot when the camera is used continuously for a
long time. If you attempt to charge the battery pack in this state, the safety
function may be activated and it may not be possible to charge the battery
pack. Wait until the battery pack has cooled down before attempting to
charge it.
Does the battery pack appear swollen?
i The lithium-ion battery used in this camera may expand slightly when
stored in a hot environment or repeatedly used, but this is not a safety
hazard.
19
English
HINT
About the internal backup battery
i This camera’s internal battery serves to maintain the date and time
settings, as well as the shooting settings. The backup battery will be fully
charged when the battery pack is kept in the camera continuously for about
2 days. In the fully charged state, the backup battery will maintain the
camera settings for about 7 days.
When not using the camera for a long time, remove the battery pack
i A small amount of power is still used even if the digital camera is turned off,
and it is therefore recommended that the battery pack be removed from the
camera if it is not going to be used for a long time. Note that when the
battery pack is removed for a long period, the time and date settings may
be cleared. Before using your camera again, be sure to confirm that the
camera settings are correct.
To prolong the life of the battery pack
i Although the battery pack is an expendable item, you can maximize the life
of the battery by heeding the following suggestions.
h Do not leave the battery under the hot summer sun or exposed to other
high-temperature environments.
h Do not continually recharge the battery when it is already fully charged.
After fully charging it once, for example, use it for a while to partially
discharge it before charging it again.
h When the battery is not to be used for a long time, if possible store the
partially charged (not fully charged) battery in a cool environment.

FILE NO. MEMORY
If a newly formatted card is used, the file name (image number) of the
captured image automatically begins from 0001. If the card is subsequently
reformatted, or if a different reformatted card is used, the file names again
begin from 0001. This is because the file number memory function is set to
“OFF”, and consequently it results in more than one card containing images
with the same numbers. By setting the file number memory function to “ON”,
even if the card is reformatted or the card is replaced with another card, the
consecutive numbering of file names continues from the last number
recorded by the camera.

CAUTION
Caution during reformatting
i Please do not turn off the camera or insert/remove the card while the card
is being formatted.
Reformatting erases the data
i When the card or internal memory is initialized, all the recorded data is
erased. Protected data is also erased, so before reformatting a card, any
data you want to keep should be copied to your personal computer’s hard
disk or other storage medium.
Caution regarding disposing/transferring the card (recovering data from
a reformatted card)
i If a card is reformatted or the data is erased from the card using the
camera or a computer, the card’s control data may be merely modified and
the data itself may not be completely erased from the card.
i In some cases it may be possible to recover the data from a reformatted
card using special software for that purpose. However, if the camera is
used to execute a full format, it will be impossible to recover the data even
by the use of data recovery software.
i If you are disposing of a card, it is recommended that you physically
destroy it. If you are transferring the card to someone else to use, it is
recommended that you use the camera’s full format function to reformat
the card, or use commercially available software for erasing card data.
Managing data is the responsibility of the user.

i When the remaining number of images or the remaining video recording
time is “0”, it may be possible to capture a few more images by changing
the resolution setting or video clip mode setting (page 67).
i The maximum number of images is 9,999, and the maximum video/audio
recording time is 99:59:59. Note that if a large-capacity card is used, the

CHECKING THE REMAINING BATTERY CHARGE
When using the battery pack, the remaining battery pack charge can be
checked on the monitor. Make sure to check this indicator before capturing an
image. For an indication of the possible length of time for battery pack
operation, see page 143.
1
Press the ON/OFF button to turn the
camera on.
h The battery pack remaining charge
indicator appears in the lower right
corner of the monitor.
h Due to the battery pack
characteristics, when the ambient
temperature is low,
may
appear early for an incorrect
indication of the remaining charge.
Also, depending on the conditions
of use of the camera or the ambient
conditions (temperature, etc.), the
indicated remaining charge may
change. Therefore, this indication
can only be used as a general
approximation of the remaining
charge.

English 116
CHECKING THE REMAINING BATTERY CHARGE
HINT
i If any data is present, you can also check the remaining battery pack
charge on the Information Screen (page 97).
i Battery life may differ even among battery packs of the same type.
i Depending on the usage of the camera (such as the number of times the
flash is used, etc.) or the ambient temperature (temperatures below 10°C
[50°F]) the number of images that can be saved on a fully charged battery
pack will vary greatly.
i It is recommended that you prepare an extra battery pack(s) when taking
pictures at a wedding or while traveling, for example, so you don’t miss
capturing images of important moments due to the battery pack power
running out. The same is recommended for taking photos in cold
environments. (In a ski area, for example, the battery pack can be kept
warm in your pocket until ready to use.)

Because shooting
with the optical
zoom uses the
optics of a physical
lens, you can shoot
without losing
minute details in the
image. The digital
zoom, on the other
hand, works by
magnifying a portion
of the image that
hits the CCD sensor
and may produce a
coarser image.
