Using the battery and charger effectively
• Charge the battery on the day, or the day before, it will be
used.
Charged batteries continue to discharge naturally even if
they are not used.
Attach the cover to a charged battery so that the S mark is
visible.
• How to store the battery for long periods:
Deplete and remove the battery from the camera. Attach the terminal cover and
store the battery. Storing a battery for long periods of time (about a year) without
depleting it may shorten its life span or affect its performance.
• The battery charger can also be used when abroad.
The charger can be used in regions that have 100 – 240 V (50/60 Hz) AC power.
If the plug does not fit the outlet, use a commercially available plug adapter. Do
not use electrical transformers for foreign travel as they will cause damage.

Formatting or erasing data on a memory card merely changes the file
management information on the card and does not ensure its contents are
completely erased. Be careful when transferring or disposing of a memory
card. When disposing of a memory card, take precautions such as
physically destroying the card to prevent personal information leaks.
• The total capacity of the memory card displayed in the formatting screen
may be less than indicated on the memory card.
• Perform a low-level format (p. 177) of the memory card when the camera
does not operate properly, the recording/reading speed of a memory card
has dropped, when continuous shooting speed slows down, or when
movie recording stops suddenly.

takes the shot.
z Since the shot is being taken while the
shutter sound plays, be careful not to move
the camera.
Does the length of the shutter sound change?
• Since the time required to shoot differs depending on the scene you want to
take, the length of the shutter sound may change.
• If the camera or subject moves while the shutter sound is playing, the recorded
image may be blurry.
If you shoot without pressing the shutter button halfway, the image may not
be in focus.

What if...
• What if the color and brightness of the images do not turn out as
expected?
The scene icon (p. 206) that appears on the screen may not match the actual
scene, and you may not obtain the expected results. If this happens, try
shooting in G mode (p. 79).
26
Taking Pictures (Smart Auto)
• What if white and gray frames appear when you point the camera toward
a subject?
A white frame appears on the face or subject that the camera detected as the
main subject, while gray frames appear on other detected faces. The frames will
follow the subjects within a certain range.
If the subject moves, however, the gray frames will disappear, leaving only the
white frame.
• What if a frame does not appear on the subject you want to shoot?
The subject may not be detected, and frames may appear on the background.
If this happens, try shooting in G mode (p. 79).
• What if a blue frame appears when you press the shutter button halfway?
A blue frame appears when a moving subject is detected; the focus and
exposure will continuously adjust (Servo AF).
• What if a flashing
appears?
Attach the camera to a tripod so that the camera does not move and blur the
image.
• What if the camera does not play any sounds?
You may have been pressing the p button while turning on the camera, which
will turn off all sounds. To turn the sounds on, press the n button to choose
[Mute] in the 3 tab, then press the qr buttons to choose [Off].
• What if the image comes out dark even if the flash fired when shooting?
The subject is too far away for the flash to reach. The effective flash range is
approximately 50 cm – 7.0 m (1.6 – 23 ft.) at maximum wide angle (j), and
approximately 50 cm – 2.3 m (1.6 – 7.5 ft.) at maximum telephoto (i).
• What if the camera beeps once when the shutter button is pressed
halfway?
Your subject may be too close. When the camera is at maximum wide angle
(j), move about 3 cm (1.2 in.) or more away from your subject and shoot.
Move about 30 cm (12 in.) or more away when the camera is at maximum
telephoto (i).
• What if the lamp lights when the shutter button is pressed halfway?
To reduce red-eye and to assist in focusing, the lamp may light when shooting
in low light conditions.
• What if the h icon blinks when you try to shoot?
The flash is charging. You can shoot when recharging ends.
• What if “Wrong flash position. Restart the camera.” appears on the
screen?
This appears if your finger is pressing on the flash when it tries to pop-up or if
something else hinders the movement of the flash.

Using the GPS Function
This function uses signals received from multiple GPS satellites to record
location information (latitude, longitude, elevation) in still images and movies.
The location information data can also be recorded separately from images
and movies. This function can also be used to automatically update the
camera’s clock.
Before using the GPS function, make sure to correctly set the date/time and
your home time zone (p. 19).
GPS stands for “Global Positioning System”.
Please keep the following things in mind when using the GPS function.
• In certain countries and regions, the use of GPS may be restricted.
Therefore, be sure to use GPS in accordance with the laws and
regulations of your country or region. Be particularly careful when
traveling outside your home country.
• Exercise caution when using this function in places that restrict the use of
electronic devices, as the camera receives signals from GPS satellites.
• The camera’s positioning information recorded in images and movies
with the GPS function may contain information that can be used to
determine your physical location. Be sure to take adequate precautions
when transferring images containing camera positioning data and GPS
log files to others, or when uploading these files to the Internet where they
can be viewed by numerous people.

GPS Signal Receiver
z Use the camera outside, where the sky is
clearly visible. (The function will not work
properly if you are in an environment, such
as indoors, where the GPS satellite signal
cannot be received (p. 110).)
z Hold the camera as shown so that signals
are easier to receive from GPS satellites.
z Be sure not to cover the GPS signal
receiver with your finger or other objects.
109
Using the GPS Function
Carrying the Camera when Using the GPS Logger Function
When carrying the camera, make sure the GPS signal receiver is pointed
toward the sky whenever possible. When keeping it in your bag, try to keep it
in an outer pocket with the GPS signal receiver pointed toward the sky. Doing
so will make it easier to receive GPS satellite signals.
Environments where GPS Signals Cannot be Received
• Since it may not be possible to receive GPS satellite signals correctly in the
following situations, the camera’s positioning data may not be recorded or
the recorded position may differ from the actual position.
zIndoors zUnderground zNear buildings or valleys zIn tunnels or forests
zNear high-voltage power lines or mobile phones that use a frequency of
1.5 GHz zWhen the camera is inside a bag or suitcase, etc. zUnder water
(using separately-sold waterproof case (p. 228) ) zWhen travelling long
distances zWhen moving to a different environment
• Since the position of GPS satellites changes over time, the camera’s
positioning data may not be recorded, the recorded position may differ from
the actual position, or the camera may record a false route even if it was
used in the same place without moving.
• It may take some time to receive a signal from GPS satellites after
switching the battery, or if the GPS function has not been used for a long
time.
• If the camera’s location information is not recorded, incorrect information is
recorded, or it takes a considerable amount of time to receive GPS satellite
signals, turn off the camera and remove the battery, then reinsert the
battery after more than one minute has elapsed. This will reset the GPS
function, which may enable recording of correct information.

Using an Eye-Fi Card
Before using an Eye-Fi card, be sure to check whether Eye-Fi card use is
authorized in the country or territory of use (p. 16).
When you put a prepared Eye-Fi card into the camera, you can automatically
transfer your images wirelessly to a computer, or upload them to a web
service.
Image transfer is a function of the Eye-Fi card. For details on how to setup
and use the card, and concerning problems transferring images, please refer
to the Eye-Fi card user guide, or contact the manufacturer.
Please keep the following things in mind when using an Eye-Fi card.
• Even if you set [Eye-Fi trans.] to [Disable] (p. 198), the Eye-Fi card may transmit
radio waves. Be sure to remove the Eye-Fi card from the camera before
entering areas that prevent unauthorized transmission of radio waves, such as
hospitals and airplanes.
• If you have trouble transferring images, check the card or computer settings.
For details, refer to the user guide supplied with the card.
• Depending on the connection status of the wireless network, it may take time to
transfer images, or image transfer may be interrupted.
• Due to its transfer function, the Eye-Fi card may become hot.
• Battery consumption will be quicker than in normal use.
• Camera operations will be slower than in normal use. This may be resolved by
setting [Eye-Fi trans.] to [Disable].
