LCD Panel
The liquid crystal panel of the monitor screen uses high-precision technology that
provides a pixel yield in excess 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.

Attach images to e-mail.
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 CS/Prerecord CS
Now you can shoot continuous high-resolution
images at the amazing speed of 30 images per
second. Prerecord CS pre-records images to ensure
you are almost never too late with the shutter button.
See page 48 for more information.
High Speed Movie
Movies can be recorded at up to 1000 frames per
second. This makes it possible to clearly view
phenomena that are invisible to the human eye, in
slow motion.
See page 58 for more information.
HD Movie Recording
You can record movies in high-quality HD.

Quick Start Basics
First, charge the battery prior to use.
Note that the battery of a newly purchased camera is not charged. Perform the steps
under “To charge the battery” to bring the battery to a full charge.
• Your camera requires a special CASIO rechargeable lithium ion battery (NP-60) for
power. Never try to use any other type of battery.
To charge the battery
1.
Positioning the positive + and
negative - terminals of the battery
with those of the charger unit, load
the battery into the charger unit.
2.
Plug the charger unit into a
household power outlet.

Quick Start Basics
Other Charging Precautions
• Use the special charger (BC-60L) to charge the special lithium ion battery (NP-60).
Never use any other type of charger device. Attempting to use a different charger
can result in unexpected accident.
• A battery that is still warm due to normal use may not charge fully. Give the battery
time to cool before charging it.
• A battery discharges slightly even when it is not loaded in the camera. Because of
this, it is recommended that you charge the battery immediately before you need to
use it.
• Charging the camera’s battery may cause interference with TV and radio reception.
If this happens, plug the charger into an outlet that is further away from the TV or
radio.
• Actual charging time depends on current battery capacity and charging conditions.

Quick Start Basics
Configuring Basic Settings the First Time You Turn On the
Camera
The first time you load a battery into the camera, a screen appears for configuring the
display language, date, and time settings. Failure to set the date and time correctly
will cause the wrong date and time data to be recorded with images.
IMPORTANT!
• A screen for language selection will not appear in step 2 of the procedure below if
you purchased a camera intended for the Japanese market. To change the display
language from Japanese in this case, use the procedure under “Specifying the
Display Language (Language)” (page 148). Note that a version of this manual in
the language you select may not be included with a camera intended for the
Japanese market.
1.
Press [ON/OFF] to turn on the
camera.
2.
Use [8], [2], [4], and [6] to select
the language you want and then
press [SET].
3.
[ON/OFF]

19
Quick Start Basics
NOTE
• Each country controls its local time offset and the use of summer time, and so they
are subject to change.
• Removing the battery from the camera too soon after configuring time and date
settings for the first time can cause the settings to be reset to their factory defaults.
Do not remove the battery for at least 24 hours after configuring settings.
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 176.
Supported Memory Cards
– SD Memory Card
– SDHC Memory Card
Use one of the above types of memory card.
• Use only SD cards that are compliant with the SD Card
Association specification.
. Memory Card Handling Precautions
Certain types of cards can slow down processing speeds, and even can make it
impossible to store High Quality movies correctly. Also, use of certain types of
memory cards slows down data transfer and increases the time it takes to record
movie data, which can result in movie frames being dropped. The “0 REC” indicator
on the monitor screen turns yellow to indicate that frames are being dropped. In order
to avoid problems such as these, use of an Ultra High Speed Type SD memory card
is recommended. Note, however that CASIO makes no guarantees about the
operation of any Ultra High Speed Type SD memory card used with this camera.
20
Quick Start Basics
To load a memory card
1.
Press [ON/OFF] to turn off the camera
and then open the battery cover.

IMPORTANT!
• Never insert anything besides a supported memory card (page 20) 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.
21
Quick Start Basics
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.
On 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.
• Before formatting a new Eye-Fi card to use it for the first time, copy the Eye-Fi
Manager install files to your computer. Do this before formatting the card.

. Using Quick Shutter
Fully pressing the shutting button without waiting for Auto Focus to operate will record
using Quick Shutter (page 88).
• 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.
. If the subject is not in the center of the frame...
“Focus lock” (page 81) is 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.

Quick Start Basics
Snapshot Shooting Precautions
Operation
• 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, shade the lens with your hand.
Monitor Screen when Shooting Snapshots
• Subject brightness conditions can cause monitor screen response to slow and can
cause digital noise in the monitor screen image.
• 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 91).
Shooting Indoors under Fluorescent Lighting
• Minute flickering of fluorescent lighting can affect the brightness or color of an
image.
Other Precautions
• Due to the characteristics of the camera’s semiconductor, slow shutter speeds can
cause digital noise in images. The camera performs an automatic noise reduction
process whenever the shutter speed is 1 second or slower. Storage of images shot
at slower shutter speeds takes longer because of the time required for noise
reduction. Do not perform any key operation while the image storage 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.
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
• If you cannot focus properly, try using focus lock (page 81) or Manual Focus (page
79).

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.

NOTE
• Lag Correction will not be performed if you press the shutter button all the way
without first pressing it half way.
• If the camera’s image size setting is 9M, 3:2, or 16:9 when you shoot with Lag
Correction, the size of the resulting image will be 6M.
• The shooting range of Lag Correction is narrower than that of the Single Shot
mode.
• The lag correction time you should select depends on a variety of factors. The lag
from the point when you decide to shoot to the point when the shutter actually
releases depend on the individual photographer and on shooting conditions.
Experiment with different settings until you find the one that suits you best.
• Failure to pay proper attention to the subject when shooting can increase the lag
time considerably.
• Note the following when selecting a lag correction time.
– If you are viewing the subject with the monitor screen, try selecting “–0.2” as the
lag correction time. If you are looking directly as the subject, try “–0.1”.
– If timing is off with the above settings, try changing the lag correction time to
“–0.3” when using the monitor screen and “–0.2” when looking directly at the
subject.
• Using Lag Correction causes the flash setting to become ? (flash off)
automatically.

42
Snapshot Tutorial
NOTE
• 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 (page 180) depends on operating conditions (battery
condition, ambient temperature, etc.).
• 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.
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, the camera fires a pre-flash to cause the irises in the eyes of any people in the
image to close, 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.

available to store the images. With Prerecord CS, half-pressing the shutter button starts
continual pre-recording of images to a temporary buffer. Then when you press the shutter
button the rest of the way down, the camera stores what is currently in the buffer and starts
real-time continuous shutter recording of new images. Real-time recording continues until
you release the shutter button or until a total of up to 30 images (buffer images plus new
images) are recorded. You can configure Prerecord CS to specify how many of the 30
images are recorded in the buffer and how many are recorded after you fully press the

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.
• When using a continuous shutter mode, keep the camera still until shooting is
finished.
• In the Continuous Shutter mode, the flash setting automatically becomes ? (flash
off).
• Zoom is disabled during continuous shutter operations.
• 9M, 3:2, or 16:9 cannot be selected as the image size while High Speed CS is
being used. If you enter the High Speed CS mode while one of these image sizes
is selected, the camera will record 6M size images.
• The maximum number of images that can be recorded during each High Speed CS
session is limited, regardless of how much memory card storage capacity is
available.
É High Speed CS
Specified maximum number of continuous shutter shots

Shooting with BEST SHOT
With BEST SHOT (page 63), 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 “Natural Green” BEST SHOT scene, for
example, will shot images with vivid green trees and grass.
Minimizing the Effects of Camera Movement during Movie Recording
You can configure the camera to minimize the effects of camera movement during
HD and STD movie recording (page 83). Note, however, that this does not prevent
image blur due to subject movement.
Audio
Your camera has a built-in microphone that can be used to record audio (monaural)
during movie recording.
. Recording Precautions
Microphone
The camera also records audio. Note the following points
when shooting a movie.
– Take care that the microphone is not blocked by your
fingers, etc.
– Good audio 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.
• Audio recording cannot be performed while “HS” is selected as the movie mode.
56
Recording Movies
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 slows down data transfer and increases the
time it takes to record movie data, which can result in movie frames being dropped.
The “0 REC” indicator on the monitor screen turns yellow to indicate that frames
are being dropped. In order to avoid problems such as these, use of an Ultra High
Speed Type SD memory card is recommended. Note, however that CASIO makes
no guarantees about the operation of any Ultra High Speed Type SD memory card
used with this camera.
• 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.
• When “Q Auto Focus” or “´ Macro” is selected for the “Focus” setting,
Continous AF is performed during HD and STD movie recording, regardless of the
current “Continuous AF” setting (page 86).
Recording a High-definition Movie
This camera supports recording of high-definition (HD) movies. The aspect ratio of an
HD movie is 16:9, the image size is 1280x720 pixels, and the frame rate is 30 fps.

Recording Movies
NOTE
• The higher the frame rate (speed), the more lighting is required when shooting.
When shooting a high speed movie, shoot in a well-lit environment.
• When recording certain types of movies, the image that appears on the monitor
screen may be smaller than normal. When recording a high speed movie, there are
black bands along the top, bottom, left, and right of the screen.
• When recording a high speed movie, light source flicker can cause horizontal
bands to appear in the image. This does not indicate malfunction of the camera.
• During high speed movie recording, Auto Focus and exposure remain fixed at the
levels they were when you initially started recording. Zoom and monitor screen
content switching are all disabled.
• To focus the image, half-press the shutter button for Auto Focus or focus manually
before starting the high speed movie recording operation.
Using Prerecord Movie (Prerecord (Movie))
With this feature, the camera pre-records up to five seconds of whatever is happening
in front of the lens in a buffer that is continually updated. Pressing [0] saves the
pre-recorded action (buffer contents) followed by real-time recording. Real-time
recording continues until you stop it. Prerecord Movie can be used when shooting a

appear on the monitor screen.
• The above procedure shoots multiple images and combines them
automatically into a final image. Do not move the camera until shooting is
complete.
• You can configure the maximum number of CS shots, the CS fps, and
Prerecord CS shots settings the same way as you configure the High Speed
CS setting (page 48). Note, however, that the maximum number of CS shots
for “Multi-motion Image” is 28 instead of 30.
69
Using BEST SHOT
NOTE
• This BEST SHOT scene saves only a single final image.
• To cancel this BEST SHOT scene and enter the Continuous Shutter mode, press
Ç (Continuous Shutter).
• Shooting with this BEST SHOT scene makes the shooting range narrower than
normal.
• Shooting with “Multi-motion Image” assumes that the subject is moving and
changing positions. Trying to use it to shoot a subject that is moving while
maintaining the same location (such as a golf swing, a baseball swing, etc.) will
cause an error message to appear on the monitor screen and failure of image
recording, or will produce an image in which the shots of the subject are arranged
incorrectly.
• Multi-motion will not operate correctly if you shake or move the camera along with
the movement of the subject.
• If an error message appears on the monitor screen, either secure the camera so it
does not move or shoot against a different type of background.
• If not enough CS images are recorded, an error will be displayed before the
camera starts to place the isolated subject onto the stationary background. This
can be caused if you release the shutter button too soon when recording the
moving subject. Keep the shutter button fully depressed long enough to allow
recording of more images.
• Choose a shooting angle so the colors, shapes, and patterns of the moving subject
and the background are as different as possible.
• Avoid a shooting angle where the background is monotone or mono-pattern (such
as a clear blue sky).
• The camera may not be able to compose the final image if the intervals between
movements are so narrow the subject shots overlap. If this happens, increase the
interval by using the control panel to select a slower “High-speed CS fps” setting
(page 48).
70
Using BEST SHOT
Shooting with Priority on Subject Faces
(High Speed Best Selection)
With High Speed Best Selection, the camera automatically shoots a series of images,
and selects the best one based on facial image blur, and facial expression (whether
the subject is smiling or blinking).
1.
Press [BS] and then select the “High Speed Best Selection” scene.
2.
Press the shutter button to shoot.
• This will cause the message “Busy... Please wait...” to appear. Do not move
the camera while this message is displayed. The recording process takes
some time to complete after the message appears.
NOTE
• This BEST SHOT scene saves only a single final image.
• To cancel this BEST SHOT scene and enter the Continuous Shutter mode, press
Ç (Continuous Shutter).
• If one or more of the faces are blurred in all of the images that are shot, they will be
blurred in the final image as well.
• The following conditions may make it impossible for the camera to determine if the
subject is blinking or smiling. This may result in a final image in which the subject is
blinking or not smiling.
– Faces that are partially or completely darkened by shadows, etc.
– Hair that is hiding or near the eyes
– Eye glasses
– Small faces
– Faces that are not looking directly at the camera
• Shooting a large group of people will cause processing of the image after shooting
to take longer.

Printing
. Date Stamping
You can use one of the following three methods to include the recording date in the
printout of an image.
Configuring camera settings
Configure DPOF settings (page 120).
You can turn date stamping on and off each time you print. You can configure
settings so some images include the date stamp and some don’t.
Configure the Camera’s Timestamp setting (page 147).
• The camera’s Timestamp setting imprints the date into a snapshot when you
shoot it, so the date is always included when you print. It cannot be deleted.
• Do not turn on DPOF date stamping for an image that includes a date
stamped with the camera’s Timestamp function. Doing so can cause the two
stamps to be overprinted.
Configuring computer settings
You can use commercially available image management software to date
stamp images.
Professional print service
Request date stamping when ordering prints from a professional print service.
. Standards Supported by the Camera

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 142 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.
153
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.

Charging
If the [CHARGE] lamp does not light red...
Charging cannot be performed because ambient temperature or the temperature of
the charger is too hot or too cold. Leave the camera in a location whose temperature
is within the range where charging can be performed. When the camera returns to a
temperature where charging can be performed, the [CHARGE] lamp will light red.
If the [CHARGE] lamp flashes red...
The battery is faulty or the battery is loaded in the charger incorrectly. Remove the
battery from the charger and check if its contacts are dirty. If contacts become dirty,
wipe them clean with a dry cloth. When experiencing charging problems, also check
to make sure that the power cord is not disconnected from the power outlet or
charger.
If problems continue to occur after you perform the above steps, it could mean that
the battery is faulty. Contact your nearest CASIO authorized service center.
162
Appendix
To replace the battery
1.
Open the battery cover and
remove the current battery.
Stopper
With the monitor screen side of the

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.
• Charge the battery in an area where the temperature is within the range of 5°C to
35°C (41°F to 95°F). Outside this temperature range charging can take longer than
normal or even fail.
• Do not tear or remove the battery outer label.
• 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).
• To prevent over discharging of an unused battery, fully charge it, and then load it in
the camera and fully use up the charge about once every six months.
163
Appendix
Using the Camera in another Country
. Precautions during Use
• The bundled charger is designed for operation with any power supply in the range
of 100V to 240V AC, 50/60Hz. Note, however, that the shape of the power cord
plug depends on each country or geographic area. Before taking the camera and
charger along on a trip, check with travel agent about the power supply
requirements in your destination(s).
• Do not connect the charger to a power supply through a voltage converter or
similar device. Doing so can lead to malfunction.
. Extra Batteries
• Taking along extra fully charged batteries (NP-60) is recommended while on a trip
in order to avoid not being able to shoot images due to the battery going dead.
Using a Memory Card
See page 20 for information about supported memory cards and how to load a
memory card.
To replace the memory card
Press the memory card and then release it. This will
cause it to pop out of the memory card slot slightly.
Pull the card out the rest of the way and then insert
another one.
• Never remove a card from the camera while the
back lamp is flashing green. Doing so can cause
the image save operation to fail and even damage
the memory card.
164
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 152).
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 152) to completely delete the data in built-in memory
before discarding or transferring ownership of the camera.

Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Cause and Recommended Action
Power Supply
Power does not
turn on.
1)The battery may not be loaded correctly (page 17).
2)The battery may be dead. Charge the battery (page 16). 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-60
rechargeable lithium ion battery.
The camera
suddenly powers
down.
1)Auto Power Off may have activated (page 149). Turn power
back on.
2)The battery may be dead. Charge the battery (page 16).
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 them.
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 30). Use manual focus
(page 79).
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.
169
Appendix
Problem
Possible Cause and Recommended Action
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.
The flash does not
fire.
1)If ? (Flash Off) is selected as the flash mode, change to
another mode (page 42).
2)If the battery is low, charge it (page 16).
3)If a BEST SHOT scene that uses ? (Flash Off) is selected,
change to a different flash mode (page 42) or select a
different BEST SHOT scene (page 63).
4)If Lag Correction is turned on while shooting single shots,
change the “Lag Correction” setting to “Ó Off” (page 40).
The ? (Flash Off)
icon flashes red on
the monitor screen
and the flash does
not fire.
The flash unit may be malfunctioning. Contact a CASIO service
center or your original retailer. Note that though the flash will not
fire, you still can use the camera for non-flash shots.
Camera powers
down during Selftimer countdown.
The battery may be low. Charge the battery.
The monitor screen 1)You may be using Manual Focus and have not focused the

2)You may be using ´ (Macro) for scenery or portraits. Use
Auto Focus for scenery and portrait shots (page 79).
3)You may be trying to use Auto Focus or ) (Infinity) when
shooting a close-up shot. Use the ´ (Macro) for close ups
(page 79).
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
42) or use lights for illumination.
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 18).
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.

Appendix
Problem
Possible Cause and Recommended Action
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
42), or adjust EV shift to the + side (page 37).
Night shots come
out bad.
Use the following BEST SHOT scenes (page 63) when shooting
at night.
• High Speed Night Scene (for shooting night scenery only)
• Night Scene Portrait (for shooting people against night
scenery)
Subjects are too
dark when shooting
images in a
seashore or ski
area.
Sunlight reflected by water, sand, or snow, can cause
underexposure of images. Change the flash mode setting to <
(Flash On) for daylight synchro flash (page 42), or adjust EV
shift to the + side (page 37).
Digital zoom will
not go up to the
maximum value.
The digital zoom setting may be turned off. Turn on digital zoom
(page 87).
The image is out of
focus during movie
recording.
1)Focusing may not be possible because the subject is outside
the focus range. Shoot within the allowable range.
2)The lens may be dirty. Clean the lens (page 159).
3)Focus is fixed during high speed movie recording.

• Snapshot and movie recording capacity values are approximate and intended for
reference only. Actual capacity depends on image contents.
• File size and data rate values are approximate and intended for reference only. Actual
values depend on the type of image being shot.
• The above values are based on use of a PRO HIGH SPEED SD memory card
(Panasonic Corporation). The number of images you can save depends on the type of
memory card you are using.
• When using a memory card with a different capacity, calculate the number of images as a
percentage of 1GB.
• The time it takes to play back a high speed movie will be different from the time it takes to
record it. If you record a 210 fps high speed movie for 10 seconds, for example, it will
take 70 seconds to play it back.
• Each movie can be up to 10 minutes long. Movie recording stops automatically after
10 minutes of recording.
• Certain types of memory cards can cause slow data transfer during movie recording,
which may result in some of the frames of the movie being dropped. In order to avoid this
problem, use of an Ultra High Speed Type SD memory card is recommended. Note,
however that CASIO makes no guarantees about the operation of any Ultra High Speed
Type SD memory card used with this camera.
* Recordable time when the entire movie is recorded at 30 fps. Recording time is shorter if
the 30 fps frame rate is switched to 210 fps during recording.
