end is reached. Because of that,
cartridges cannot be reused after
being rewound in mid-roll. However,
the visual exposure of cartridges
that were rewound when no
exposure has been made will
remain (unexposed). This
cartridge can be used even when
rewound.
• Do not forcibly move the visual
exposure indicator because this
may damage the cartridge. Using a
damaged cartridge can result in
camera trouble.

RED-EYE REDUCING FLASH
Significantly reduces the
phenomenon of "red-eye"
(when a subject's eyes
appear red in flash photography).
In the
flash mode, the camera
will fire a series of low-power preflashes before the regular flash.
Red-eye reduction may not
be effective when the subject:
1. Is not looking at the flash from
the right front.
2. Is not watching the pre-flashes.
3. Is too far from the camera.
36
The effectiveness of red-eye
reduction varies depending on the
individual characteristics of
subjects.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to hold the
camera still until the shutter
releases. It takes approximately
one second.
37
OFF (Flash Override)
When you don't want the
flash to fire even in the dark
or when you want to shoot
such subjects as fireworks.
Use this mode in situations where
flash photography is not desired
or is prohibited, or in twilight or
night scenes.
Note: Since a slow shutter speed
(down to 2 seconds) is automatically selected in low-light
situations, use of a tripod is
recommended. Closing the lens
barrier restores the Auto Flash
mode.
38
FILL-IN FLASH
(Forced Activation)
When you want the flash to
fire for each shot.
The flash fires regardless of
available light. Use this mode to
compensate for a shadow cast on
the subject's face (such as the
shadow of a tree). It is also used
when shooting in backlit
conditions or under artificial
lighting (such as fluorescent light).
Use this mode within the flash
working range (p. 35). Closing the
lens barrier restores the Auto
Flash mode.
39
NIGHT SCENE FLASH
When taking pictures of
people with a night
background, this mode
produces clear images of both.
Notes:
• Use of a tripod is recommended
since a slow shutter speed
(down to 4 seconds) is
automatically selected in lowlight situations.
• The Spot mode is automatically
canceled when the Night Scene
Flash mode is selected.
• Closing the lens barrier restores
the Auto Flash mode.
40
RED-EYE REDUCING NIGHT
SCENE FLASH MODE
You can take pictures of
people with a night scene
background while reducing
the "red-eye" phenomenon.
Notes:
• Except for the
flash's preflashes, this mode is the same
as the Night Scene Flash mode.
• Read precautionary remarks in
"Red-Eye Reducing Flash" (p.
37) and "Night Scene Flash" (p.
40).
• This mode cannot be combined
with the Spot mode.
• When the lens barrier is closed,
the camera switches to the RedEye Reducing Flash mode.
41
SPOT MODE
1. Press the selftimer/remote
control and flash mode
buttons simultaneously to
enter the Spot mode. The
LCD panel displays
Press those buttons simultaneously again to cancel the
Spot mode.
2. Position the autofocus mark

The exposure will be locked in
the center of the autofocus
mark.
42
3. Reposition your subject in
the picture frame while
keeping the shutter release
button depressed halfway.
Then press the shutter
release button fully.
After the Spot mode has been
engaged or disengaged, check
the selftimer/remote control and
flash mode settings.
Focus and exposure can be
adjusted at a different point from
the autofocus frame using the
Spot mode.
43
The use of the Spot mode is
recommended in the following
cases:
• When there is an object in front
of the main subject.
• When the subject is on the edge
of the frame.
• When the background is brighter
than the subject (the subject is
backlit).
Difficult-to-Autofocus Subjects
Although this camera's autofocus
system can lock on virtually any
subject, under certain conditions,
44
such as
below, it may not
lock on the correct subject even if
the shutter releases. This can
happen either when the green
lamp lights or blinks rapidly.
In these situations, first focus on a
different subject at a similar
distance, and then reposition the
correct subject in the picture
frame.
Subjects with low contrast
Subjects that do not contain
vertical lines
Subjects with an extremely
bright area in the part of the
image
Two subjects at different
distances
Subjects with repetitive patterns
Subjects with strong backlight

CARE AND STORAGE
• Do not leave the camera
exposed to excessive heat,
humidity, or direct sunlight — for
example, in a car or on the
beach.
• If the camera gets wet, wipe it
with a dry towel. The salt in
seawater can be especially
damaging.
• Do not use organic solvents,
such as alcohol or paint thinner
when cleaning the camera.
• Do not leave the camera on or
near a television, refrigerator, or
other appliance with a magnetic
field.
56
• Do not expose the camera to
dust or sand as this could cause
serious damage.
• Do not shake or shock the
camera.
• Do not apply excessive force to
the zoom lens.
• Keep the camera in a wellventilated place.
• Do not expose the camera to
extreme heat (over 40°C/104°F)
or to extreme cold (below -10°C
/14°F). Low temperatures, even
within this range, may
sometimes cause deterioration
in battery performance,
temporarily disabling the
camera.
57
• When transporting the camera
from a cold place to a warm
place, or in the event of a
sudden temperature change,
put the camera into a plastic
bag. This allows the camera's
temperature to change slowly.
Once the camera has adjusted
to the new temperature, you can
remove it from the bag and use
it.
• Keep your hair, hands, strap,
etc. away from the autofocus
window, lens, AE sensor and
flash.
58
• Avoid leaving the camera
unused for long periods of time.
This can cause mold to grow on
the camera as well as other
problems. Try to press the
shutter release button and
check the operation of the
camera before use.
• Some airport X-ray machines
can damage the film in your
camera. Try to avoid passing
your camera through these
machines. Give it to the security
officer for manual inspection.
59
CARING FOR YOUR
WEATHERPROOF CAMERA
This camera is designed to be waterresistant; however, it is not designed for
underwater use or to be subjected to
being saturated. Seawater can be
especially damaging to your camera
due to salt content. Note the following
warnings and take the necessary
precautions if your camera becomes
wet.
• The camera can withstand splashing
water (e.g., seaside and poolside)
• The camera can be used in rain or
snow but should not become soaked.
• Do not wash the camera.
• Do not submerge the camera or
attempt to take pictures underwater.
This camera is designed with rubber
gaskets located inside the rear of the
camera and battery compartment
cover.
60
These gaskets protect the interior of
the camera from becoming wet in the
event the camera is splashed with
water. Check these gaskets often and
carefully remove any sand or dust to
maintain this protective seal.
Whenever your camera gets wet, take
the following precautions to maintain
your camera in good working order.
• Clean the entire exterior of the
camera with a dry cloth.
• Open the battery compartment and
remove the battery, leaving the
battery cover open.
• Open the back cover and expose the
film compartment.
• Check the interior to see if it is wet. If
it is, carefully dry it.
• Leave both the battery compartment
and back cover for several hours to
let it air-dry.
61
Do not touch the rubber gasket with
excessive force. Do not remove the
gaskets. The gaskets in your camera
should be replaced after approximately
three years to insure consistently good
weatherproof performance. They may
need more frequent replacement
depending on use and wear. If the
gaskets are damaged or need
replacement, contact your nearest
Olympus service center.
If you are taking pictures at the beach,
you need to avoid getting sand on or
inside of your camera. Transport your
camera in its own case. Do not wrap
your camera up with beach towels and
carry it in your beach bag.
