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.

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.

The subject may not be detected, and frames may appear on the background.
If this happens, try shooting in G mode (see Camera User Guide).
• 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.

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?

approximately 50 cm – 7.0 m (1.6 – 23 ft.) at maximum wide angle (j), and
approximately 1.4 – 3.0 m (4.6 – 9.8 ft.) at maximum telephoto (i).
• What if the camera beeps once when the shutter button is pressed
halfway?
Your subject may be too close. Move about 1.4 m (4.6 ft.) 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.
