Upgrading Your Software and Firmware
Download the latest versions of the software included on the KODAK
EASYSHARE Software CD and the camera firmware (the software that runs on
the camera). See http://www.kodak.com/go/ls443downloads.
Tips, Safety, Maintenance
m Always follow basic safety precautions. Refer to the “Important Safety
Instructions” booklet packed with your camera.
m Do not allow any chemicals, such as suntan lotion, to come into contact
with the painted surface of the camera.
m If the camera has been subjected to inclement weather or you suspect
water has gotten inside the camera, turn off the camera and remove the
battery and card. Allow all components to air-dry for at least 24 hours
before using the camera again.
m Clean the lens and back LCD:
1 Blow gently on the lens or LCD to remove dust and dirt.
2 Moisten the lens or LCD by breathing lightly on it.
3 Wipe the lens or LCD gently with a soft, lint-free cloth or an untreated
lens-cleaning tissue.
m Do not use cleaning solutions unless they are designed specifically for
camera lenses. Do not wipe the camera lens or LCD with chemically
treated eyeglass lens tissue. It may scratch the lens.
m Wipe the outside of the camera with a clean, dry cloth. Never use harsh or
abrasive cleaners or organic solvents on the camera or any of its parts.
m Service agreements are available in some countries. Contact a dealer of
Kodak products for more information.
m For digital camera disposal or recycling information, please contact your
local authorities. In the US, visit the Electronics Industry Alliance Web site
at www.eiae.org or the Kodak Web site at
www.kodak.com/go/ls443support.

Locating Pictures and Videos on a Card
Pictures stored on MMC/SD Cards use a standard agreed upon by many camera
manufacturers. This lets you use the cards in different cameras. If you use a
card reader to retrieve your files, the following description of the card file
structure may be helpful.
MISC folder—contains the order files created when you use the Share
feature to tag files for printing, emailing, and as favorites.
SYSTEM folder—used for updating camera firmware.
DCIM folder—root level folder, contains the 100K443 folder. Each time you
turn on the camera or insert a different card, any empty folders within the
DCIM folder are removed.
100K443 subfolder—initially contains all pictures and videos on the card.
Card File Naming Conventions
m Pictures are named 100_nnnn.JPG, and are numbered in the order in
which they are taken. The first picture is named 100_0001.JPG; the highest
number allowed is 100_9999.JPG.
m When a card contains a picture named 100_9999.JPG in the
\DCIM\100K443 folder, subsequent pictures appear in a new folder
(\DCIM\101K443), beginning with picture 101_0001.JPG.
m Even if you transfer pictures to the computer or delete pictures from the
camera, the camera continues to use consecutive numbers for all
subsequent pictures. For example, if the last picture taken was
100_0007.JPG and you delete it, the next picture you take is named
100_0008.JPG.
m When you insert a different card into your camera, the next picture number
is defined by incrementing the higher of the last picture taken by the
camera, or the highest existing picture number in the folder.
98
Chapter 11
m If you use the card in a camera other than the KODAK EASYSHARE LS443
Zoom Digital Camera, and that camera manufacturer adheres to this file
structure standard, the \DCIM folder contains a folder named by that
camera. For more information, refer to the documentation that
accompanied that camera.
Burst Pictures
When a burst series is initiated, a letter “B” replaces the underscore in the file
name. When a burst series is initiated or ended, the second digit to the left of
the decimal is incremented by 1.

Chapter 11
Using the Battery
m We recommend using only a KODAK EASYSHARE Li-Ion Rechargeable
Battery or equivalent 3.7V Li-Ion. Not all manufacturer’s 3.7V Li-Ion
rechargeable batteries are compatible with the camera. Damage caused by
unauthorized accessories is not covered under warranty. Purchase
accessories at your KODAK retail dealer or
http://www.kodak.com/go/accessories.
m For acceptable battery life, and to make sure your camera operates
dependably, we do not recommend or support other batteries.
m To lengthen battery life, limit the following activities:
– Using Liveview (using the LCD as the viewfinder, see page 18)
– Reviewing your pictures on the LCD (see page 41)
– Excessive use of the flash
m Dirt on the battery contacts can affect battery life. Wipe the contacts with a
clean, dry cloth before loading batteries in the camera.
m Battery life depends significantly on battery age, usage conditions, type, and
brand. Digital camera requirements are very demanding on batteries. Not
all batteries perform well under these challenging conditions.
m Battery performance is reduced at temperatures below 41° F (5° C).
Carry spare batteries when using your camera in cold weather, and keep
them warm until you are ready to take pictures. Do not discard cold
batteries that do not work. When they return to room temperature, they
may be usable.
m Do not allow batteries to touch metal objects, including coins. Otherwise, a
battery may short circuit, discharge energy, become hot, or leak.
