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.

• 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 113.
Supported Memory Cards
– SD Memory Card (Up to 2GB)
– SDHC Memory Card (2GB to 32GB)
– SDXC Memory Card (32GB to 2TB)
Use one of the above types of memory card.
• The above are supported memory card types as of June 2011.
• Noted memory card capacities are standard values.

• 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, SDHC, or SDXC 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.
• Before formatting an Eye-Fi card, be sure to back up any data on it that you want to
keep.

• For information about Flash Range, see page 115.
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 115) 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
photograph 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.

– Good audio recording results are not possible when the
camera is too far away from what you are trying to
record.

• Shooting a very bright subject can cause a vertical band or
a pink cast on the monitor screen image. This does not
indicate malfunction.
• Shooting a movie using the camera’s built-in memory will cause movie frames to
be dropped. Always use a high speed memory card (not built-in memory) for movie
recording.
• Only digital zoom can be used for zooming during movie recording. Since optical
zoom is not possible while recording a movie, zoom as required before pressing
[0] (Movie) to start recording.
• 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 movie icon 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.
NOTE
• 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.

Recording Images
Using BEST SHOT
BEST SHOT provides you with a collection of sample “scenes” that show a variety of
different types of shooting conditions. When you need to change the setup of the
camera, simply find the scene that matches what you are trying to achieve, and the
camera sets up for it automatically. This helps to minimize the chance of ruined
images due to poor exposure and shutter speed settings.
. To shoot an image with BEST SHOT
1.
In the REC mode, touch the second icon
from the top (Recording mode).
• If the icon is not displayed on the screen, touch
the tab to display it.
2.
Touch “b” (BEST SHOT).
This will display a menu of BEST SHOT scenes.
3.
Touch the scene you want to select.
• Touching “ ” in the upper right corner of the
screen and then touching a BEST SHOT scene
will display detailed information about the scene.
4.
Press the shutter button (if you are shooting a snapshot) or press [0]
(Movie) (if you are shooting a movie).
NOTE
• The BEST SHOT YouTube scene sets up the camera for recording movies that are
optimized for uploading to YouTube. Movies recorded with the YouTube scene are
stored in a special folder to make them easy to locate for uploading (page 81).
39
Using BEST SHOT
. BEST SHOT Precautions
• For YouTube scene cannot be used while shooting a snapshot.
• Your camera includes a 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 you record using the auction site sample scene are
stored in a special folder so you can easily find them on your computer (page 81).
• High Sensitivity
– The high sensitivity setting is disabled whenever the camera’s flash fires.
– High sensitivity may not produce the desired results in very dark conditions.
– When shooting with slow shutter speeds, use a tripod to protect against blurring
due to camera movement.
– Under certain lighting conditions, the camera will perform an automatic noise
filtering operation to reduce digital noise in the image. This operation causes the
camera to take longer than normal to save the image and be ready for the next
shot.
• BEST SHOT scene images were not shot using this camera.
• Images shot using a BEST SHOT scene may not produce the results you expected
due to shooting conditions and other factors.
• You can modify the camera settings that are configured after you select a BEST
SHOT scene. Note, however, that the BEST SHOT settings revert to their defaults
when you select another BEST SHOT scene or turn off the camera.
• Some scenes like Night Scene results in a slow shutter speed setting. Since a slow
shutter speed increases the chance of digital noise in the image, the camera
automatically performs a digital noise reduction process when either of these
scenes is selected. This means that it will take a bit longer for the image to be
saved which is indicated by the back lamp flashing green. Do not perform any
operation during that time. Also, it is a good idea to use a tripod to avoid image blur
due to camera movement when shooting at slow shutter speeds.

DPOF is a standard that allows you to include image type, number of copy,
and time stamp on/off information on the memory card with the images.
After configuring settings, you can use the memory card to print on a home
printer that supports DPOF or take the memory card to a professional print
service.
• Whether or not you will be able to use DPOF settings for printing depends on the
printer you are using.
• Some professional print services may not support DPOF.

Printing
Tell your print service about your DPOF settings!
If you take a memory card to a professional print service, be sure to tell them that it
includes DPOF settings for the images to be printed and the number of copies. If you
don’t, the print service may print all the images without regard to your DPOF settings,
or they may ignore your date stamp setting.
. 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 63).
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 Time Stamp setting (page 86).
• The camera’s Time Stamp 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 Time Stamp 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
• PRINT Image Matching III
Using image editing software and printing on a printer that supports
PRINT Image Matching III makes it possible to use information about
shooting conditions that is recorded with the image, and produce
exactly the type of image you want. PRINT Image Matching and
PRINT Image Matching III are trademarks of Seiko Epson Corporation.
• Exif Print
Printing on a printer that supports Exif Print uses information
about shooting conditions recorded with the image to enhance
printed image quality. Contact your printer manufacturer for
information about models that support Exif Print, printer upgrades, etc.

• When recording a movie to an Eye-Fi card, it can take too much time to record
data, which can result in breaks in the image and/or audio.
• Proper Eye-Fi card data communication may not be possible due to camera
settings, battery level, or operating conditions.
79
Using the Camera with a Computer
Files and Folders
The camera creates a file each time you shoot a snapshot, record a 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 81).
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.
26th file name:
File
CIM G0026.JPG
Extension
Serial number (4 digits)
Folders
Folders are named from 100CASIO to
100th folder name:
999CASIO.
100CASIO
There can be up to 900 folders in memory.
• The BEST SHOT (page 39) 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 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 upload to YouTube.
Images recorded with the 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 10.
• 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.

81
Using the Camera with a Computer
. 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 81 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.

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 camera for a long time while it is charged can cause deterioration of
battery characteristics. If you do not plan to use a camera 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.
100
Appendix
Using the Camera in another Country
. Precautions during Use
• The bundled USB-AC adaptor 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 USB-AC adaptor along on a trip, check with travel agent about the
power supply requirements in your destination(s).
• Do not connect the USB-AC adaptor 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-120) 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 21 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.
. Using a Memory Card
• SD memory cards, SDHC memory cards, and SDXC
Write enabled
memory cards have a write protect switch. Use the
switch when you need to guard against accidentally
deleting data. Note, however, if you write protect an SD
Write disabled
memory card you 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 91). 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.
101
Appendix
• 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.).
. Memory Card Handling Precautions
Certain types of memory cards can slow down processing speeds. In particular, you
may experience problems saving high-quality (HD) movies. When using the camera’s
built-in memory or certain types of memory cards, it can take too much time to record
data, which can result in breaks in the image and/or audio. This condition is indicated
by the movie icon turning yellow on the monitor screen. Use of a memory card with a
maximum transfer speed of at least 10MB per second is recommended.
. 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 90) 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 14).
2)The battery may be dead. Charge the battery (page 15). 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-120
rechargeable lithium ion battery.
The camera
suddenly powers
down.
1)Auto Power Off may have activated (page 89). Turn power
back on.
2)The battery may be dead. Charge the battery (page 15).
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, touch “g” (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 31). 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.
106
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 33).
2)If the battery is dead, charge it (page 15).
3)If a BEST SHOT scene that uses ? (Flash Off) is selected,
change to a different flash mode (page 33) or select a
different BEST SHOT scene (page 39).
The red ? (Flash
Off) icon is
displayed on the
monitor screen and
the flash does not
fire.
The flash unit may be malfunctioning. Contact a CASIO
authorized 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 dead. Charge the battery (page 15).
The monitor screen 1)You may be using Manual Focus and have not focused the
image is out of
image. Focus the image (page 44).
focus.
2)You may be using “Macro” for scenery or portraits. Use Auto
Focus for scenery and portrait shots (page 43).
3)You may be trying to use Auto Focus or 9 (Infinity) when
shooting a close-up shot. Use the Macro for close ups (page
43).
B
There is a vertical
line in the monitor
screen image.
Shooting a very brightly lit subject can cause a vertical band to
appear in the monitor screen image. This is a CCD
phenomenon known as “vertical smear”, and does not indicate
malfunction of the camera. Note that vertical smear is not
recorded with the image in the case of a snapshot, but it is
recorded in the case of a movie.
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
33) or use lights for illumination.
3)Shooting with a high ISO sensitivity setting or with the
Lighting feature can cause an increase in digital noise. Use a
light or some other means to illuminate the subject.
107
Appendix
Problem
Possible Cause and Recommended Action
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 19).
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
33), or adjust EV shift to the + side (page 48).
Night shots come
out bad.
Use the following BEST SHOT scenes (page 39) when shooting
at night.
• 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 33), or adjust EV
shift to the + side (page 48).
Digital zoom
(including HD
zoom) does not
work. The zoom
bar indicates zoom
only up to a zoom
factor of 5.0.
Date stamping may be turned on, which will cause digital zoom
to be disabled. Turn off date stamping (page 86).
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 96).
