• Battery performance temporarily decreases as the temperature
decreases. When using the camera in cold climates, have extra
batteries on hand, keeping them warm in your pocket. Battery
performance will return to normal when returned to room temperature.
• Owing to the characteristics of AA alkaline batteries, the camera may
not deliver optimal performance at low temperatures when powered by
alkaline batteries. We recommend the use of other batteries such as
CR-V3 batteries when using the camera in conditions of low ambient
temperature.
• When traveling overseas, taking pictures in cold climates, or when you
will be taking a lot of pictures, please have extra batteries ready.

• Precautions when using an SD Memory Card
1
Getting Started
• Make sure the camera is turned off before opening the
battery/card cover.
Write-protect
• The SD Memory Card has a write-protect switch. Moving
the switch to the [Lock] position prevents the recording and switch
erasing of data and the formatting of the card and protects
all saved data.
• SD Memory Cards formatted on a PC or device other than
the camera cannot be used. Be sure to format the card with
the camera.
• The SD Memory Card may be hot when removed
immediately after camera use. Please be careful.
• Do not remove the card or turn off the camera when
recording data or playing back images or sounds from the SD Memory Card,
or when connected to a PC with the USB cable. This could cause data loss or
card damage.
• Do not bend the SD Memory Card or subject it to violent impact. Do not get it
wet or leave it in a high temperature location.
• New cards or cards used in another camera must be formatted before use. For
more information about formatting the card, see “Formatting an SD Memory
Card” (p.97).
• Do not remove the SD Memory Card while the card is being formatted. The
card may be damaged and become unusable.
• Data stored on an SD Memory Card may be erased under the following
conditions. PENTAX does not accept any liability regarding erased data.
(1)When the user mishandles the SD Memory Card
(2)When the SD Memory Card is placed in a location with static electricity or

You can select a frame rate of 15 fps or 30 fps (frames per second). A
frame rate of 30 fps yields twice the number of frames as a frame rate
15 fps, resulting in smoother moving images. However, because image
size also doubles at 30 fps, less time is available for shooting.

Connecting the Camera Directly to a
Printer to Print
Using the USB Cable I-USB7 (included), you can connect the camera to
a printer that supports the PictBridge standard in order to print images
directly from the camera without using a personal computer. After
connecting the camera and printer, you use the camera monitor to select
which images to print and the number of prints. There are three printing
methods: printing all images, printing individual images, and printing
using printing service (DPOF) settings.
We recommend using the AC Adapter D-AC5 (sold separately) when
connecting the camera to a printer. Loss of battery power during data
transmission to the printer can result in printer malfunction or corruption
of image data.
Some types of printer do not reflect all camera settings (such as image
quality and DPOF settings).

WARRANTY POLICY
All PENTAX cameras purchased through authorized bona fide photographic
distribution channels are guaranteed against defects of material or workmanship
for a period of twelve months from date of purchase. Service will be rendered, and
defective parts will be replaced without cost to you within that period, provided the
equipment does not show evidence of impact, sand or liquid damage,
mishandling, tampering, battery or chemical corrosion, operation contrary to
operating instructions, or modification by an unauthorized repair shop. The
manufacturer or its authorized representatives shall not be liable for any repair or
alterations except those made with its written consent and shall not be liable for
damages from delay or loss of use or from other indirect or consequential
damages of any kind, whether caused by defective material or workmanship or
otherwise; and it is expressly agreed that the liability of the manufacturer or its
representatives under all guarantees or warranties, whether expressed or
implied, is strictly limited to the replacement of parts as hereinbefore provided. No
refunds will be made on repairs by nonauthorized PENTAX service facilities.
10
Appendix
Procedure During 12-month Warranty Period
Any PENTAX which proves defective during the 12-month warranty period should
be returned to the dealer from whom you purchased the equipment or to the
manufacturer. If there are no representatives
of the manufacturer in your country, send the equipment to the manufacturer, with
postage prepaid. In this case, it will take a considerable length of time before the
equipment can be returned to you owing to the complicated customs procedures
required. If the equipment is covered by warranty, repairs will be made and parts
replaced free of charge, and the equipment will be returned to you upon
completion of servicing. If the equipment is not covered by warranty, regular
charges of the manufacturer or of its representatives will apply. Shipping charges
are to be borne by the owner. If your PENTAX was purchased outside of the
country where you wish to have it serviced during the warranty period, regular
handling and servicing fees may be charged by the manufacturer’s
representatives in that country. Notwithstanding this, your PENTAX returned to
the manufacturer will be serviced free of charge according to this procedure and
warranty policy. In any case, however, shipping charges and customs clearance
fees to be borne by the sender. To prove the date of your purchase when
required, please keep the receipt or bills covering the purchase of your equipment
for at least a year. Before sending your equipment for servicing, please make sure
that you are sending it to the manufacturer’s authorized representatives or their
approved repair shops, unless you are sending it directly to the manufacturer.
119
00_Optio43WR-E.book Page 120 Tuesday, April 6, 2004 4:40 PM
Always obtain a quotation for the service charge, and only after you accept the
quoted service charge, instruct the service station to proceed with the servicing.
• This warranty policy does not affect the customer’s statutory rights.
• The local warranty policies available from PENTAX distributors in some
countries can supersede this warranty policy. Therefore, we recommend
that you review the warranty card supplied with your product at the time
of purchase, or contact the PENTAX distributor in your country for more
information and to receive a copy of the warranty policy.
