ATTACHING THE HAND STRAP
1 Insert the smaller loop of the hand strap through the strap
eyelet.
2 Insert the other end of the hand strap through the small
loop.
24
INSERTING THE BATTERIES
This camera uses four AA-size alkaline or Ni-MH batteries. (Do not mix batteries of different types.)
* When using AA-size Ni-MH batteries, fully recharge them with a vendor-endorsed battery charger.
1 When replacing the batteries, slide the power switch to
turn off the camera.
2 Slide the battery-chamber door slightly in the 1 direction
and open it in the 2 direction.
3 Install the batteries. Be careful to follow the +/- diagram
indicated on front of the battery-compartment.
25
4 Close the battery-chamber door in the direction of the arrow
1 and slide it until it clicks 2 .
• After replacing the batteries, check that the built-in clock (date and time) works correctly (See page
121).
If the camera has no power source for approximately five minutes, the built-in clock may delay or
reset to the default setting. In this case, set the date and time again by following the procedure
described on page 121.
• To avoid damaging the battery compartment door, make sure it is completely shut before setting
the camera down.
• Batteries become hot during camera operation. Handle batteries with caution.
26
CHECKING THE BATTERY POWER
When the batteries are installed in the camera, the camera checks the battery power automatically
and shows the result on the data panel.
Battery power is sufficient.
Battery power is no longer at peak performance and should be
monitored.
Batteries are exhausted. All indicators blink for 5 seconds then camera
shuts off.
• Replace exhausted batteries or...
• Remove exhausted batteries and use AC adapter 6V 1A (see page 28).
Taking a picture or playing back cannot be executed.
* If the data panel is blank after replacing batteries, check the battery installation by verifying
polarity (+/-). If the data panel is still blank, the new batteries may be dead and should be
replaced.
27
AUTO POWER OFF
To conserve battery life, the DC3810 shuts off automatically after three minutes of inactivity.
To restart the camera, slide the power switch to the right.
• Under battery power, the automatic power-off function can be reset to 1, 5, 10, or 30 minutes.
(See page 117.)
• Under AC adapter power, the automatic power-off function is set and fixed at 30 minutes.
Using the AC adapter 6V 1A (sold separately)
We recommend taking advantage of the AC adapter whenever possible. Taking pictures indoors or
downloading photos to your computer provides the perfect opportunity to conserve battery life by using
an AC adapter.
Be sure the camera is shut off when changing the power source from battery to AC adapter or from
AC adapter to battery.
1 Connect the mini plug of the AC adapter to the DC terminal
of the camera.
• The Shape of the mini plug may vary depending on the AC adapter.
2 Connect the power plug of the AC adapter to an AC outlet.

• If the green focus lamp blinks, see pages 37 - 43.
• The red flash lamp illuminates when the flash is charged.
• When the flash lamp (red) blinks slowly, (approx. 2 per minute) the shutter speed
will be slow. The slightest camera movement while taking a picture will produce
a blurred effect. The use of a tripod is strongly recommended under these
conditions.
6 Press the shutter-release button the rest of the way down.
• If the flash lamp (red) blinks when the shutter-release button is fully depressed,
the flash is busy charging. If you continue holding down the shutter-release
button, the DC3810 will take a picture the instant the flash reaches a full charge.
• The LCD monitor displays the captured image as the DC3810 loads it onto
the CF card. While the image is loading, the green focus lamp blinks slowly
(approx. 2 per second) and "RECORDING" blinks on the LCD monitor.
Do not disconnect the DC 3810's power source or remove the CF card during
this function as the CF card could be damaged and/or all of your data lost.
Wait until the focus lamp and "RECORDING" display stop blinking.

FOLDER NAME
The folder in the CF card is conformed with DCF (Design rule for Camera File system) format.
When taking a picture with this camera, the "Dcim" folder is made in the directory of the CF card and
the "100SX520" folder is made in the "Dcim" folder. The first captured image is recorded with the file
name of "SIMG001.jpg" in the "100SX520"folder. The name of the folder in which the captured
images are recorded is displayed on the playback mode menu.
The file name of the image to be recorded consists of "SIMG", "4-digit number" and ".jpg". The
files are recorded in the "100SX520" folder until
the 4-digit number becomes 9999 (the file name
of "SIMG9999.jpg"). When the10000th file is
recorded, the "101MX520" folder is created
in the "Dcim" folder and the 10000th file is recorded with the file name of "SIMG0001.jpg"in the
"101MX520"folder.
There will be two folders for the images in one CF card if you capture more than 10000 images. You
can select the folder in which the image to be played back is recorded by the folder name displayed in
the playback mode menu.

SWITCHING THE VIDEO SIGNAL FROM THE VIDEO OUTPUT TERMINAL
The Argus DC3810 camera has a video-out terminal to view captured images on your TV set with the
video cable that came with your DC3810. You can switch the camera's output signal between NTSC
and PAL .
What is NTSC and PAL?
Both are the TV's broadcast system. The NTSC system is mainly used in the U.S.A., Japan, Canada,
Mexico, the Philippines and Korea. The PAL system is used in the western Europe such as Germany, England,
Switzerland, Holland, Italy (except for France) and Australia, Singapore, Thailand and China.
As these systems have no compatibility, you cannot watch an NTSC system based TV in an area where a PAL
system is used.
This camera can switch the video output signal to both an NTSC system and a PAL system so you can watch the
images on TV not only in your own country, but around the world.

NOTES ON THE HANDLING
Batteries
• Battery performance decreases with lower operating temperatures. Under cold conditions, it's best
keep spare batteries in a warm place such as inside your coat.
Performance of Ni-MH batteries decreases in cold weather but can recover their charge once warmed.
• Remove the batteries when they are not in use for an extended period. Leaking batteries will damage the
battery compartment.
• Occasionally, when using alkaline batteries, the battery-condition indicator will indicate low power when
in fact, there is a sufficient charge.
Except when connected to a computer and/or transferring data between them, continue to use the camera.
The low-battery symbol should disappear under these circumstances.
• The batteries will be hot after use--be careful when removing or replacing. It's best to turn off the camera
and allow the batteries to cool down.
155
LCD Monitor Care
• The LCD monitor is manufactured using high precision technology. However, there may rarely be a
lack of color or bright points on the LCD monitor.
• Do not apply pressure on the surface of the LCD monitor. Permanent damage may result.
• Under cold or hot conditions, the LCD monitor may be temporarily dark and slow to react.
When the camera warms up, normal display will be restored.
• Wipe away fingerprints with a clean, soft, dry cloth.
Copyright
• TV program, films, video tapes, and other materials may be protected under copyright laws.
Unauthorized recording of such materials may be illegal.
Certain performances and exhibitions prohibit the use of photography equipment unless
agreed to under written contract.
DPOF
• If the CF card containing DPOF data specified by other camera is inserted into this camera,
the DPOF data will be lost.
• Inserting a CF card containing image data recorded with another digital camera that supports the
DCF format cannot specify those images using the DPOF.
156
• The playback mode menu is displayed on the LCD monitor.
Operating Temperatures and Conditions
• This camera has been designed for use in temperatures from 0ºC to 40ºC (32ºF to 104ºF).
• Never leave the camera exposed to extreme high temperatures such as in a car parked in direct sunlight or
extreme humidity.
• To prevent condensation from forming on the camera, place it in a sealed plastic bag when transferring
from cold to warm temperatures. Allow the camera to reach room temperature before removing.
Safety and Handling for the CF card
• Read and follow the instructions manual supplied with the CF card.
• The following may cause data loss or damage. We recommend creating a backup file in other media such
as ZIP disc, hard disk, CD-ROM, etc. Argus Camera assumes no responsibility for these damages.
1 Improper use of card.
2 Static electrical discharge near card and/or electric noise.
3 Removing the card or interrupting power supply while camera or equipment is accessing the card (reading, writing, formatting etc.)

Other precautionary information
• Do not subject the camera to shock or impact.
• Turn the camera off when transporting.
• This camera is neither water nor splash proof.
Inserting or removing batteries and the CF card, or operating the camera with wet hands may
damage the camera.
When using the camera at the beach or near water, take care not to drop water or sand on the
camera. Contact with water, sand, dust or salt may result in damage.
• Do not leave the camera under direct sunlight.
• Pointing the lens directly at the sun may damage the CCD and is extremely harmful to your eyes.
158
CARE AND STORAGE
Cleaning
• Clean the outside of the camera with a soft, clean, dry cloth. Never use organic solvents.
• To clean the lens surface, first blow away any dust or sand, then, if necessary, moisten a lens tissue
or soft cloth with lens cleaning fluid and gently wipe the lens. DO NOT attempt to wipe away sand
or dirt particles as this may scratch the lens' surface. Never touch the lens surface with your fingers.
