• Some portions of the camera heat up during use, so please take care, as
there is a risk of low temperature burns if such portions are held for long
periods of time.
• Do not place your finger on the flash when it is discharging as there is a
risk of burns.
• Do not discharge the flash while it is touching your clothing as there is a
risk of discoloring.
• If any of the battery leakage should come in contact with your eyes, do not
rub them. Flush your eyes with clean water and get medical attention
immediately.
• If any of the battery leakage should come in contact with skin or clothes,
wash the affected areas thoroughly with water.
• Should the LCD be damaged, be careful of glass fragments. Also, be
careful not to allow the liquid crystal to get on your skin or eyes or in your
mouth.

Care to be Taken During Handling
• Take the Worldwide Service Network that is included in the package. This
will be useful if you experience problems abroad.
• When the camera has not been used for a long time, confirm that it is still
working properly, particularly prior to taking important pictures (such as at
a wedding or during travelling). Contents of the recording cannot be
guaranteed if recording, playing back or transferring your data to a
computer, etc. is not possible due to a malfunction of your camera or
recording media (SD Memory Card), etc.
• The lens on this camera is not exchangeable. The lens is not removable.
• Do not clean the product with organic solvents such as thinner or alcohol
benzene.
• Places of high temperature and humidity should be avoided. Particular
care should be taken regarding vehicles, which can become very hot
inside.
• Storing the camera where pesticides and chemicals are handled should be
avoided. Remove from case and store in a well-ventilated place to prevent
the camera from becoming moldy during storage.
• Do not use the camera where it may come in contact with rain, water or any
other liquid, because the camera is not weather, water, or liquid resistant.
Should the camera get wet from rain, splashing water, or any other liquid,
wipe it off immediately with a dry soft cloth.
• Ensure that the camera is not subjected to substantial vibrations, shocks
or pressure. Place the camera on a cushion for protection when the
camera is subjected to the vibrations of a motorbike, car, or ship, etc.
• The temperature range in which the camera can be used is 0°C to 40°C
(32°F to 104°F).
• The liquid crystal display will become black but will return to normal when
normal temperatures are returned.
• The response speed of the liquid crystal display becomes slow at low
temperatures. This is due to the properties of the liquid crystal and is not
a fault.
• Periodic checks are recommended every 1 to 2 years in order to maintain
high-performance.
4
• If the camera is subjected to rapid temperature changes, condensation
may form on the inside and outside of the camera.
Therefore put the camera in a bag or plastic bag, and take the camera out
when the difference in temperature has subsided.
• Avoid contact with garbage, dirt, sand, dust, water, toxic gases, salt, etc.
as this may cause damage to the camera. If rain or drops of water get onto
the camera, please wipe dry.
• Refer to “Precautions When Using an SD Memory Card” (p.22) regarding
the SD Memory Card.
• Please do not press forcefully on the LCD monitor. This could cause
breakage or malfunction.
• Be careful not to sit down with the camera in your back pocket as this may
damage the exterior of the camera or the LCD monitor.

Precautions When Using an SD Memory Card
1
Getting Started
22
• Make sure that the camera is turned off before opening the battery/card cover.
• The SD Memory Card is equipped with a write-protect switch. Write-protect switch
Setting the switch to [LOCK] protects the existing data by
prohibiting recording of new data, deletion of existing data or
formatting of the card.
• Care should be taken if you remove the SD Memory Card
immediately after using the camera, as the card may be hot.
• Do not remove the SD Memory Card or turn the camera off
while data is being recorded on the card, images or sound
are being played back, or the camera is connected to a PC with the USB cable as
this may cause the data to be lost or the card to be damaged.
• Do not bend the SD Memory Card or subject it to violent impact. Keep it away from
water and store away from high temperature.
• Be sure to format unused cards or cards that have been used on another camera.
Refer to “Formatting an SD Memory Card” (p.142) for instructions on formatting.
• Do not remove the SD Memory Card during formatting as this may damage the
card and render it unusable.
• The data on the SD Memory Card may be deleted in the following circumstances.
PENTAX does not accept any liability for data that is deleted
(1) when the SD Memory Card is mishandled by the user.
(2) when the SD Memory Card is exposed to static electricity or electrical
interference.
(3) when the card has not been used for an extended period of time.
(4) when the card is ejected, the AC adapter is disconnected or the battery is
removed while the data on the card is being recorded or accessed.
• The SD Memory Card has a limited service life. If it is not used for an extended
period of time, the data on the card may become unreadable. Be sure to make a
backup of important data on a PC.
• Avoid using or storing the card where it may be exposed to static electricity or
electrical interference.
• Avoid using or storing the card in direct sunlight or where it may be exposed to
rapid changes in temperature or to condensation.
• When using an SD Memory Card with a slow recording speed, recording may stop
while you are taking movies even when there is adequate space in the memory, or
shooting and playback may take a long time.
• When you purchase the SD Memory Cards, access the PENTAX website and
confirm beforehand if they have compatibility with your camera. Inquiries on the
card compatibility can also be answered by your nearest PENTAX service center.

• A three-dimensional effect will not be achieved if the subject
moves before the second image is taken. When taking a person,
you are recommended to ask your model to stay as still as
possible and to take the second picture as quickly as you can. It is
easier to take the pictures if you use a tripod or appropriate base.
• As a guide, the camera should be moved about 1/40 of the distance
between the camera and the subject. For example, if the subject is
3m away, the distance the camera should be moved will be
3m÷40=7.5cm. However, as the way people see three-dimensional
images differs from person to person, there is no need to be too
concerned. Refer to the table below for a simple guide to how far
to move the camera.

Viewing 3D Pictures by the Parallel Method and Cross Method
As our eyes are positioned about 6 cm or 7 cm apart, there is a very
slight deviation between what we see with our right eye and what we see
with our left eye. The difference is processed by our brain to produce a
three-dimensional image. This principle is applied to taking and viewing
3D pictures.
3D pictures can be viewed by the parallel method where the left and right
lines of vision are virtually parallel, as when looking at a distant scene,
or the cross method where the left and right lines of vision are crossed,
as when you cross your eyes. A certain amount of practice may be
necessary to view 3D pictures without using the viewer.
How to Assemble the 3D Image Viewer
Assemble the 3D image viewer (optional) as shown below.
4
Taking Pictures
63
How to View 3D Pictures Using the 3D Image Viewer
Print out the pictures so that they are about 11 cm or 12 cm wide and
place the divider of the 3D image viewer in the middle of the two.
4
Taking Pictures
As the distance between the left and right eyes differs from person
to person, some people may have difficulty obtaining a threedimensional effect even when looking at prints that are the same
size. It may be especially difficult if the pictures are very large or very
small. Try different sizes until the right effect is achieved.
• Never look at the sun through the 3D image viewer.
• Do not leave the 3D image viewer where it is exposed to direct
sunlight as this may lead to fire.

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. 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.
