LCD Panel
The liquid crystal panel used for the monitor screen and viewfinder employs highprecision technology that provides a pixel yield of 99.99%. This means that some
very small number of pixels may not light or may remain lit at all times. This is due to
the characteristics of the liquid crystal panel, and does not indicate malfunction.
Take test shots
Before shooting your final image, shoot a test shot to ensure that the camera is
recording correctly.

Quick Start Basics
What you can do with your CASIO camera
Your CASIO camera is packed with a powerful selection of features and functions to
make recording of digital images easier, including the following three main functions.
High-speed Continuous Shutter
Prerecord (Still image)
Now you can shoot continuous high-resolution
images at the amazing speed of 60 images per
second. Prerecord (Still image) pre-records images
to ensure you are almost never too late with the
shutter button.
See page 46 for more information.
High-speed Movies
Movies can be recorded at up to 1200 frames per
second. This makes it possible to clearly view
phenomena that are invisible to the human eye, in
slow motion.
See page 64 for more information.
Full HD Movie Recording
You can record movies in high-quality full HD and
play them back on a Hi-Vision TV.

Quick Start Basics
Preparing a Memory Card
Though the camera has built-in memory that can be used to store images and
movies, you probably will want to purchase a commercially available memory card for
greater capacity. The camera does not come with a memory card. Images recorded
while a memory card is loaded are saved to the memory card. When no memory card
is loaded, images are saved to built-in memory.
• For information about memory card capacities, see page 177.
Supported Memory Cards
–

–
–
SD Memory Card
SDHC Memory Card
MMC (MultiMediaCard)
MMCplus (MultiMediaCardplus)
Use one of the above types of memory card.
. Memory Card Handling Precautions
Certain types of cards can slow down processing speeds. In particular, you may
experience problems saving high-quality movies. Use of certain types of memory
cards increase the time it takes to record movies, which can cause movie frames to
be lost. The “0 REC” indicator on the monitor screen turns yellow to indicate that
frames are being lost. Use of a memory card with a maximum transfer speed of at
least 10MB per second is recommended.
To load a memory card
1.
Press [ON/OFF] to turn off the camera and then open
the memory card slot cover.
Pressing the memory card slot cover, slide it in the direction
indicated by the arrow.
2.
2
Load a memory card.
Positioning the memory card so its front is
facing in the same direction as the

Quick Start Basics
IMPORTANT!
• Never insert anything besides a supported memory card (page 16) into the memory
card slot.
• Should water or any foreign object ever get into the card slot, immediately turn off
the camera, remove the battery, and contact your retailer or nearest CASIO
authorized service center.
To format (initialize) a new memory card
You need to format a new memory card before using it for the first time.
1.
Turn on the camera and press [MENU].
2.
Select the “Set Up” tab, select “Format” and then press [6].
3.
Use [8] and [2] to select “Format” and then press [SET].
IMPORTANT!
• Formatting a memory card that already has snapshots or other files on it, will delete
its contents. Normally you do not need to format a memory card again. However, if
storing to a card has slowed down or if you notice any other abnormality, re-format
the card.
• Be sure to use the camera to format a memory card. Formatting a memory card on
a computer and then using it in the camera can slow down data processing by the
camera. In the case of an SD or SDHC memory card, formatting on a computer can
result in non-conformity with the SD format, causing problems with compatibility,
operation, etc.

normal and does not indicate malfunction (page 81).
. Using Quick Shutter
Fully pressing the shutting button without waiting for Auto Focus to operate will record
using Quick Shutter (page 84).
• With Quick Shutter, the camera focuses faster than normal Auto Focus, which
means you can capture quick moving action more easily. Note, however, that some
images may be out of focus when Quick Shutter is used.
• Whenever possible, take a little extra time to half-press the shutter button in order
to ensure proper focus.
. If the image does not focus...
If the focus frame stays red and the back lamp is flashing green, it means that the
image is not in focus (because the subject is too close, etc.) Point the camera at the
subject and try to focus again.
19
Quick Start Basics
. If the subject is not in the center of the frame...
“Focus lock” (page 44) is the name of a technique you can use when you want to
shoot an image in which the subject to be focused on is not within the focus frame in
the center of the screen.
Holding the Camera Correctly
Your images will not come out clearly if you

• Never open the battery cover while the back lamp is flashing green. Doing so can
result in the image you just shot being saved incorrectly, damage to other images
stored in memory, malfunction of the camera, etc.
• If unwanted light is shining directly onto the lens, install the lens hood that comes
with the camera or shade the lens with your hand.
Monitor Screen when Shooting Snapshots
• The image that appears on the monitor screen is for image composition. The actual
image will be recorded at the quality set for the image quality setting (page 87).
Shooting Indoors under Fluorescent Lighting
• Minute flickering of fluorescent lighting can affect the brightness or color of an
image.
Auto Focus Restrictions
• Any of the following can make proper focus impossible.
– Solid color wall or other very low contrast subject
– Strongly back lit subject
– Very shiny subject
– Blinds or other subject with a repeating horizontal pattern
– Multiple subjects at varying distances from the camera
– Subject in a dark location
– Subject that is too far away for light from the AF assist lamp to reach
– Camera movement while shooting
– Fast-moving subject
– Subjects outside the focus range of the camera

26
Snapshot Tutorial
IMPORTANT!
• You may not be able to achieve the brightness you want when shooting an image
that is very dark or very bright. If this happens, use the M mode to adjust the
aperture or shutter speed manually.
• Due to the characteristics of the camera’s semiconductor, slow shutter speeds can
cause digital noise to appear in the image. Because of this, the camera
automatically performs a noise reduction process whenever the shutter speed is
1 second or slower. The slower the shutter speed, the greater the possibility that
noise will be generated in an image. Because of the time required for noise
reduction, the record operation takes longer for images shot at slower shutter
speeds. Do not perform any key operation while the image recording operation is in
progress.
• Due to the characteristics of the imaging element used by the camera, very fast
moving objects in an image may appear distorted.
• Depending on the shutter speed setting and the recording mode you used, the
brightness of what appears on the monitor screen when you record the image may
be different from the brightness of the recorded image.
• Image AS (page 81) does not work in the S mode and M mode. You can, however,
turn on Camera AS, if you like.
• The recording mode changes to t (Auto) automatically whenever you shoot a
movie with the “STD” or “HD” movie mode (page 64).
• The aperture, shutter speed, and ISO sensitivity settings configured with the
snapshot A Mode, S Mode, or M Mode are used when shooting a movie with the
“HS” movie mode (page 64). Note, however, that the shutter speed range is limited
in accordance with the frame rate specified for the high-speed movie.
• When recording with some modes, light source flicker can cause horizontal bands
to appear in the image.

Changing the Image Size (Size)
. Pixels
A digital camera image is a collection of small
dots called “pixels”. The more pixels there are
in an image, the more detail there will be.
However, you generally can do with fewer
pixels when printing an image (L size)
through a print service, attaching an image to
e-mail, when viewing the image on a
computer, etc.

Image Size Selection Tips
Note that larger images have more pixels, so they take up more memory space.
Large Number of Pixels
* More detail, but takes up more memory. Best when you plan
to print large-size prints (such as A3 size).
Small Number of Pixels
* Less detail, but takes up less memory. Best when you want to
send images by e-mail, etc.

Snapshot Tutorial
• The initial factory default image size setting is 6M (6 million pixels).
• Selecting 3:2 (2816x1872 pixels) records images with an aspect ratio of 3:2, which
matches the standard aspect ratio of print paper.
• The letters “HDTV” stand for “High Definition Television”. An HDTV screen has an
aspect ratio of 16:9, which makes them wider than the usual 4:3 aspect ratio of
television screens of the past. Your camera can record images that are compatible
with the aspect ratio an HDTV screen.
• You should regard the print paper sizes suggested here as guidelines only (200 dpi
print resolution).
• You can shoot directly to RAW image data only while the t (Single Shot) is
selected with the CS dial and “RAW+” is selected as the image size. Consecutive
mode and BEST SHOT mode shooting produces “6M” image size JPEG images
only, which is selected automatically.

Flashes red while the flash is charging to indicate that
image recording is disabled.
• You will not be able to take another flash snapshot until
the lamp stops flashing red, which indicates that
charging is complete.
< indicates the flash will fire.
• Note that the flash unit does not close automatically. After you
are finished using it, you need to close it by hand.
NOTE
• Take care to ensure nothing is close to or in contact with the flash unit when it fires.
Also make sure that the flash unit and the area around it is not dirty. Objects, dust,
or dirt near the flash unit can be burned when the flash fires.
• Take care so your fingers and the strap do not block the flash.
• The desired effect may not be obtained when the subject is too far away or too
close.
• Flash charging time depends on operating conditions (battery condition, ambient
temperature, etc.) With a fully charged battery it takes anywhere from a few
seconds to 9 seconds.
• Shooting with flash turned off when lighting is dim results in a slow shutter speed,
which can cause image blur due to camera movement. Under such conditions,
secure the camera with a tripod, etc.
• With red eye reduction, the flash is fired automatically in accordance with
exposure. It does not fire in areas where lighting is bright.
• The presence of outdoor sunlight, fluorescent lighting, or some other light source
can cause abnormal image colors.
• Select “Flash Off” for the flash setting when shooting in areas where flash
photography is prohibited.
• Approximate Flash Range (ISO Sensitivity: AUTO)
Wide Angle: 0.5 m to 6.7 m (1.6' to 22.0')
Telephoto: 1.1 m to 3.9 m (3.6' to 12.8')
* The above values depend on the optical zoom setting.
32
Snapshot Tutorial
Red-eye Reduction
Using the flash to shoot at night or in a dimly lit room can cause red spots inside the
eyes of people who are in the image. This is caused when the light from the flash
reflects off of the retina of the eye. When red-eye reduction is selected as the flash
mode, an LED light will light immediately before the flash fires. This causes the irises
in the eyes of any people in the image to become smaller, which reduces the chance
of red eye.
Note the following important points when using red-eye reduction.
• Red-eye reduction does not work unless the people in the image are looking
directly at the camera (flash).
• Red-eye reduction may not work very well if the subjects are located far away from
the camera.
Other Useful Flash Features
• Changing the flash intensity (page 89)
• Compensating for insufficient flash intensity (page 89)
• Using an external flash (page 92)

• “AUTO” ISO sensitivity always is applied for movies, regardless of the current
ISO sensitivity setting.
• “S Image AS” (page 81) can be used only when the ISO sensitivity setting is
“AUTO”.
• An ISO setting of ISO 400 or greater is not supported when the “Image Size”
setting is “RAW+”. If the ISO setting is “ISO 400” or greater when you change
the “Image Size” setting to “RAW+”, an ISO setting of ISO 200 will be used for
recording.
Adjusting White Balance (White Balance)
You can adjust white balance to match the source of light available where you are
shooting and avoid the blue cast that results when shooting outdoors when it is
cloudy, and the green cast that results when shooting under fluorescent lighting.

The white balance setting is retained even if you turn off the
camera.
• When “‡ Auto WB” is selected for the white balance setting, the camera
automatically determines the white point of the subject. Certain subject colors
and light source conditions can cause problems when the camera tries to
determine the white point, which makes proper white balance adjustment
impossible. If this happens, select the white balance setting that matches your
shooting conditions (Daylight, Overcast, etc.)

In the REC mode, use [8] and [2] to select the fifth control panel
option from the top (EV Shift).
2.
Use [4] and [6] to adjust the exposure compensation value.
[6]: Increases the EV value. A higher EV
value is best for light-colored subjects
and backlit subjects.
[4]: Decreases the EV value. A lower EV
value is best for dark-color subjects and
for shooting outdoors on a clear day.
To cancel exposure compensation, change
the EV value to 0.0.
3.
Press [SET].
This applies the exposure compensation
value. The exposure compensation value
you set remains in effect until you change it.

Continuous Shutter Precautions
• If there is not enough available capacity on the memory card, you may not be able
to record the number of CS images indicated on the monitor screen. Make sure
your memory card has sufficient remaining capacity before shooting with using
continuous shutter.
• With continuous shutter, exposure and focus for the first image are applied for
successive images as well.
• Continuous shutter cannot be used in combination with any of the following.
Movie Mode, some BEST SHOT scenes (Digital Anti Shake, Move Out CS, Move
In CS, Digital Panning)
• When using a continuous shutter mode, keep the camera still until shooting is
finished.
• In the Prerecord (Still image) and High-speed CS modes, the flash setting
automatically becomes ? (flash off).
• Zoom is disabled during continuous shutter operations.
• When the High-speed CS speed setting is anything other than “AUTO-N”, the
maximum number of images per continuous shutter session is limited for Prerecord
(Still image), Flash CS, and Bracketing, even if there is memory card capacity
available to store more images.
High-speed CS speed setting not “AUTO-N”
Up to 60 images
Prerecord (Still image)
Up to 60 images
Flash CS with flash
Up to 3 to 20 images
Flash CS with LED light
Up to 60 images
Bracketing
Up to 5 images
The number of images will be restricted even further or shooting may be impossible
when remaining memory card capacity is less than the allowable number of images
for a particular CS mode.
• The Flash CS mode switches between the flash and the LED light automatically in
accordance with the CS speed. You cannot switch between the flash and the LED
light manually. In the Flash CS mode, either the flash or the LED light will fire
whenever an image is shot.
• The Triple Self-time cannot be used in the High-speed CS, Flash CS, and
Bracketing modes.
60
Snapshot Tutorial
• The Self-timer cannot be used in the Prerecord (Still image) and Slow Motion View
modes.
• When the flash is fired for Flash CS, the greater the number of images setting, the
smaller the flash range (shooting range). When the LED light is fired, the faster the
shooting speed setting, the smaller the flash range (shooting range).
• The flash is disabled in the Bracketing mode.
• With some BEST SHOT scenes (Digital Anti Shake, Move Out CS, Move In CS,
Digital Panning), the current CS dial setting is ignored.
• Continuous shutter recording is disabled while the following BEST SHOT scene is

Shooting with BEST SHOT
With BEST SHOT (page 67), you can select the sample scene that matches the type
of movie you are trying to shoot and the camera will change its setup accordingly, for
beautiful movies every time. Selecting the BEST SHOT scene named Night Scene,
for example, will configure the camera so night scenes appear clearer and brighter.
Minimizing the Effects of Camera Movement during Movie Recording
You can configure the camera to minimize the effects of camera movement during
movie recording (page 81). Note, however, that this does not prevent image blur due
to subject movement and it makes the field of view narrower.
62
Recording Movies
Audio
Your camera has built-in microphones that
can be used to record audio during movie
recording. An external microphone jack also
supports connection of a commercially
available external microphone. Note,
however, that the built-in microphones are
disabled while an external microphone is
being used.

. Recording Precautions
The camera also records audio. Note the
following points when shooting a movie.
– Take care that the microphones are not
blocked by your fingers, etc.
– Good recording results are not possible when the camera is
too far away from what you are trying to record.
– Operating camera buttons while shooting can cause button
noise to be picked up in the audio.
Microphones
NOTE
• Spending a long time using movie recording will cause the camera to become
slightly warm to the touch. This is normal and does not indicate malfunction.
• Use of certain types of memory cards increase the time it takes to record movies,
which can cause movie frames to be lost. The “0 REC” indicator on the monitor
screen turns yellow to indicate that frames are being lost. To avoid loss of movie
frames, use of a memory card with a maximum transfer speed of at least 10MB per
second is recommended.
• The effects of camera movement in an image become more pronounced when you
shoot close up or with a large zoom factor. Because of this, use of a tripod is
recommended under these conditions.
• Face Detection is disabled during movie recording.

Using an External Flash
Use of a commercially available flash unit makes it possible to obtain a higher level of
brightness than you get when using the built-in flash alone. An external flash also
makes it possible to extend the effective range of flash photography.
IMPORTANT!
• Some flash performance may be lost when using a ring flash or other type of unit
with a long flash time.
• The aperture value and ISO sensitivity available with some flash units may not
match the values supported by your camera. In such a case, make adjustments in
the aperture setting of the external flash and the camera until proper brightness is
achieved.
• An external flash unit cannot be used with Flash CS (page 48).
. Before Using an External Flash Unit
Be sure to perform the following steps before using an external flash unit.
1.
In the REC mode, set the CS dial to t (Single Shot).
2.
Press [2] (
3.
Use [4] and [6] to select ¢ (External Flash) and then press [SET].
) once.
Now if you connect an external flash unit it will fire whenever you shoot a
snapshot. The built-in flash will not fire.
IMPORTANT!
• Be sure to select ¢ (External Flash) for the flash mode setting when using an
external flash. If you don’t, the built-in flash will pop up during shooting, which can
lead to malfunction if it comes into contact with the external flash unit.
• Note that the brightness of what you see on the monitor screen will be different
from the brightness of the image you record. Make sure you check the settings of
your external flash and of the camera before recording.
92
Advanced Settings
. Using an External Flash Unit
IMPORTANT!
• Always make sure that the external flash unit is turned off before attaching it to or
detaching it from the camera. Leaving the flash unit on can cause it to fire
unexpectedly.
1.
Remove the shoe cap.
• Keep the shoe cap in a safe place where it will not become lost.
• Replace the shoe cap when you are not using the external flash shoe. The
shoe cap protects the shoe contact from dirt and damage.
2.
Attach the external flash unit to the
external flash shoe.
3.
Turn on camera power and make the
required camera settings.

shooting.)
White Balance: ¤ (Daylight)
Flash Mode: ¢ (External Flash) (page 92)
4.
Turn on the external flash unit, and set it up for the camera’s aperture
value and sensitivity value.
• Depending on shooting conditions, proper exposure may not be attained even
if you properly set the auto aperture value and ISO sensitivity of the flash unit
to match those of the camera. If this happens, adjust the auto aperture value,
ISO sensitivity, or other settings of the flash unit. Also try adjusting the aperture
of the camera and the ISO sensitivity to match the flash setting.
93
Advanced Settings
. External Flash Precautions
• After recording an image, check it on the monitor screen. If it is not what you
expected, use the controls on the external flash unit to adjust flash intensity, and
adjust the aperture and ISO sensitivity settings on the camera. Note that you
cannot control external flash unit intensity using camera settings.
• Close up images often tend to be overexposed. If you are having overexposure
problems, try adjusting the aperture and ISO sensitivity settings of the external
flash unit and the camera. You can also try using the camera’s built in flash to
correct for overexposure.
• Camera aperture (F) values are based on the widest optical zoom (1X). Using
telephoto can cause slight lens darkness. Adjust the aperture and ISO sensitivity
settings of the external flash unit and the camera as required when using optical
zoom.
• If you do not plan to use the external flash, detach it from the camera and select
some setting other than ¢ (External Flash) as the flash mode. The built-in flash
will not operate properly while an external flash is attached.
Installing the Lens Hood or a Lens Filter
Use the procedures in this section to install the lens hood that comes with the camera
or a commercially available filter.
Installing the Lens Hood
Installing the lens hood that comes with the
camera shuts out unwanted light when shooting
in very strong sunlight or against backlighting,
which helps to reduce the chance of ghosting
and flaring.
When installing the lens hood, align the guide
mark on the hood with the guide mark on the
camera lens, and press the hood until you hear it
click into place.
To remove the lens hood, press the buttons on
the left and right and pull it towards you.

94
Advanced Settings
NOTE
• Depending on the angle of the light, the lens hood may not have the desired effect.
• Using the flash with the lens hood attached can cause vignetting (darkening of the
corners of the image). Remove the lens hood before using the flash.
• Use of a commercially available lens hood may cause vignetting (darkening of the
corners of the image).
Installing a Filter
This camera supports use of commercially available 62mm filters.
NOTE
• Carefully read the user documentation that comes with filters for information about
how to use them properly.
• Keep the following points in mind when purchasing a filter.
– Use of a filter can cause blackening around the edges of images.
– Use of a filter may interfere with proper operation of Auto Focus and flash.
– Filters may not deliver the same results as those obtained with a film camera.
• Do not use multiple filters.

movie, or perform any other operation that stores data. Files are grouped by storing
them in folders. Each file and folder has its own unique name.
• For details about how folders are organized in memory, see “Memory Folder
Structure” (page 135).
Name and Maximum Number Allowed
Example
Each folder can contain up to 9999 files named
CIMG0001 through CIMG9999. The extension
on the file name depends on the file type.

Folders are named from 100CASIO to
100th folder name:
999CASIO
100CASIO
There can be up to 900 folders in memory.
• The BEST SHOT mode (page 67) includes a Serial number (3 digits)
sample scene that optimizes settings for
auction site images. Depending on your
camera model, the sample scene is named
either “For eBay” or “Auction”.
– Images recorded with the “For eBay”
scene are stored in a folder named
“100_EBAY”.
– Images recorded with the “Auction” scene
are stored in a folder named “100_AUCT”.
• BEST SHOT also has a scene named “For
YouTube” that optimizes movie settings for
recording movies for uploading to YouTube.
Images recorded with the “For YouTube”
scene are stored in a folder named
“100YOUTB”.
• You can view folder and file names on your computer. For details about how file
names are displayed on the camera’s monitor screen, see page 166.
• The total number of folders and files allowed depends on the image size and
quality, and capacity of the memory card being used for storage.

Using the Camera with a Computer
. Supported Image Files
• Image files shot with this camera
• DCF-compliant image files
This camera may not be able to display an image, even if it is DCF-compliant. When
displaying an image recorded on another camera, it may take a long time for the
image to appear on this camera’s monitor screen.
. Built-in Memory and Memory Card Data Handling Precautions
• Whenever copying memory contents to your computer, you should copy the DCIM
folder and all of its contents. A good way to keep track of multiple DCIM folders it to
change their names to dates or something similar after you copy them to your
computer. If you later decided to return a DCIM folder to the camera, however, be
sure to change its name back to DCIM. The camera is designed to recognize only a
root file with the name DCIM. Note the camera also will not be able to recognize the
folders inside the DCIM folder unless they have the names they originally had
when you copied them from the camera to your computer.
• Folders and files must be stored in accordance with the “Memory Folder Structure”
shown on page 135 in order for the camera to be able to recognize them correctly.
• You also can use a PC card adapter or a memory card reader/writer to access
camera files directly from the camera’s memory card.

Histogram
NOTE
• A centered histogram does not necessarily guarantee optimum exposure. The
recorded image may be over-exposed or under-exposed, even though its
histogram is centered.
• Due to the limitations of exposure compensation, you may not be able to achieve
an optimum histogram configuration.
• Use of the flash and certain shooting conditions can cause the histogram to
indicate exposure that is different from the actual exposure of the image when it is
shot.
• The histogram cannot be displayed during High-speed Movie recording.

147
Configuring Monitor Screen Settings
How to Use the Histogram
A histogram is a graph that represents the lightness of an image in terms of the
number of pixels. The vertical axis indicates the number of pixels, while the horizontal
axis indicates lightness. If the histogram appears too lopsided for some reason, you
can use EV shift to move it left or right in order to achieve better balance. Optimum
exposure can be achieved by EV shifting so the graph is as close to the center as
possible. For snapshots, you can even display individual histograms for R (red), G
(green), and B (blue).
Example Histograms
A histogram towards the left side results when the
overall image is dark. A histogram that is too far to
the left may result in “black out” of the dark areas
of an image.
A histogram towards the right side results when
the overall image is light. A histogram that is too
far to the right may result in “white out” of the light
areas of an image.
An overall well-balanced histogram results when
the overall image is at optimal lightness.

Battery Precautions
. Precautions during Use
• Operation provided by a battery under cold conditions is always less than operation
under normal temperatures. This is due to the characteristics of the battery, not the
camera.
• If a battery provides only very limited operation following a full charge, it probably
means the battery has reached the end of its service life. Replace the battery with a
new one.
. Storage Precautions
• Storing the battery for a long time while it is charged can cause deterioration of
battery characteristics. If you do not plan to use a battery for some time, fully use
up its charge before storing it.
• Always remove the battery from the camera when you are not using it. A battery left
in the camera can discharge and go dead, which will require some time to charge
when you need to use the camera.
• Store batteries in a cool, dry place (20°C (68°F) or lower).
158

fail and even damage the memory card.
160
Appendix
. Using a Memory Card
• SD memory cards and SDHC memory cards have a
Write enabled
write protect switch. Use the switch when you need to
guard against accidentally deleting data. Note,
however, if you write protect an SD memory card you
Write disabled
must then turn write protection off whenever you want
to record to it, format it, or delete any of its images.
• If a memory card starts to behave abnormally during
image playback, you can restore normal operation by reformatting it (page 145).
However, it is recommended that you always take along multiple memory cards
whenever using the camera far away from the home or office.
• As you record data to and delete data from a memory card a number of times, it
loses its ability to retain data. Because of this, periodic re-formatting of a memory
card is recommended.
• Electrostatic charge, electrical noise, and other phenomena can cause data to
become corrupted or even lost. Make sure that you always back up important data
on other media (CD-R, CD-RW, hard disk, etc.)
. Discarding or Transferring Ownership of a Memory Card or the
Camera
The format and delete functions of the camera do not actually delete files from the
memory card. The original data remains on the card. Note that responsibility for the
data on a memory card lies with you. The following procedures are recommended
whenever you discard a memory card or the camera, or if you transfer ownership to
another party.
• When discarding a memory card, either physically destroy the memory card or use
commercially available data delete software to completely delete the data on the
memory card.
• When transferring ownership of a memory card to another party, use commercially
available data deletion software to completely delete the data on it.
• Use the format function (page 145) to completely delete the data in built-in memory
before discarding or transferring ownership of the camera.

When things don’t go right...
Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Cause and Recommended Action
Power Supply
Power does not
turn on.
1)The battery may not be loaded correctly (page 13).
2)The battery may be dead. Charge the battery (page 11). If the
battery goes dead soon after being charged, it means the
battery has reached the end of its life and needs to be
replaced. Purchase a separately available CASIO NP-100
rechargeable lithium ion battery.
The camera
suddenly powers
down.
1)Auto Power Off may have activated (page 142). Turn power
back on.
2)The battery may be dead. Charge the battery (page 11).
3)The camera’s protection function may have activated
because camera temperature is too high. Turn off the camera
and wait until it cools down before trying to use it again.
Power will not turn
off. Nothing
happens when a
button is pressed.
Remove the battery from the camera and then reload it.
Image Recording
Image is not
recorded when the
shutter button is
pressed.
1)If the camera is in the PLAY mode, press [r] (REC) to enter
the REC Mode.
2)If the flash is charging, wait until the charge operation
finishes.
3)If the message “Memory Full” appears, transfer images to
your computer, delete images you no longer need, or use a
different memory card.
Auto Focus does
not focus properly
1)If the lens is dirty, clean it off.
2)The subject may not be in the center of the focus frame when
you compose the image.
3)The subject you are shooting may not be a type that is
compatible with Auto Focus (page 23). Use manual focus
(page 43).
4)You may be moving the camera when shooting. Try shooting
with Anti Shake or use a tripod.
5)You may be pressing the shutter button all the way without
waiting for Auto Focus. Half-press the shutter button and
allow enough time for Auto Focus to focus.
The subject is out
of focus in the
recorded image.
The image may not be focused properly. When composing the
image, make sure the subject is located inside the focus frame.

Appendix
Problem
Possible Cause and Recommended Action
The flash does not
fire.
1)If ? (Flash Off) is selected as the flash mode, change to
another mode (page 31).
2)If the battery is dead, charge it (page 11).
3)If a BEST SHOT scene that uses ? (Flash Off) is selected,
change to a different flash mode (page 31) or select a
different BEST SHOT scene (page 67).

2)You may be using ´ (Macro Mode) for scenery or portraits.
Use Auto Focus for scenery and portrait shots (page 43).
3)You may be trying to use Auto Focus or ) (Infinity Mode)
when shooting a close-up shot. Use the ´ (Macro Mode) for
close ups (page 43).
There is digital
noise in images.
1)Sensitivity may have been increased automatically for a dark
subject, which increases the chance of digital noise. Use a
light or some other means to illuminate the subject.
2)You may be attempting to shoot in a dark location with ?
(Flash Off) selected, which can increase digital noise and
make images appear coarse. In this case, turn on flash (page
31) or use lights for illumination.
3)Flash assist or dynamic range may be enabled for snapshots,
which can cause an increase in digital noise. Use a light or
some other means to illuminate the subject.
A recorded image
was not saved.
1)Camera power may have been turned off before the save
operation was complete, which will result in the image not
being saved. If the battery indicator shows
, charge the
battery as soon as possible (page 11).
2)You may have removed the memory card from the camera
before the save operation was complete, which will result in
the image not being saved. Do not remove the memory card
before the save operation is complete.
Though available
lighting is bright,
the faces of people
in the image are
dark.
Not enough light is reaching the subjects. Change the flash
mode setting to < (Flash On) for daylight synchro flash (page
31), or adjust EV shift to the + side (page 36).

actual number of images you may be able to record may be less than that indicated on
the monitor screen.
• Image files sizes are approximate and are provided for reference only. Actual image file
sizes vary depending on subject type.
• The above values are based on use of a Panasonic PRO HIGH SPEED SD memory

Approximate Battery Life
All of the values provided below represent the approximate amount of time under
normal temperature (23°C (73°F)) before the camera turns off. These values are not
guaranteed. Low temperatures shorten battery life.
Number of Shots (CIPA) (Operating Time)*1
Continuous Playback
(Snapshots)*2
520 shots
8 hours
Approximate continuous movie recording time
3 hours 30 minutes
• Battery: NP-100 (Rated Capacity: 1950mAh)
• Recording Medium: 1GB SD memory card (Panasonic brand PRO HIGH SPEED)
• Measurement Conditions
*1 Approximate number of shots (CIPA) (Operating Time)
In accordance with CIPA standards
Normal temperature (23°C (73°F)), monitor on, zoom operation between full wide and
full telephoto every 30 seconds, during which two images are shot with flash; power
turned off and back on every time 10 images are shot.
*2 Approximate playback time
Standard temperature (23°C (73°F)), one-image scroll approximately every 10 seconds
• The above values are based a new battery, starting from a full charge. Repeated
charging shortens battery life.
• Frequency of flash, zoom, High-speed Continuous Shutter, and Auto Focus usage,
and the time the camera is on greatly affects recording time and number of shots
values.
