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 40 images per
second. Prerecord (Still image) pre-records images
to ensure you are almost never too late with the
shutter button.
See page 50 for more information.
High-speed Movies
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 59 for more information.
HD Movie Recording
You can record movies in high-quality HD.
(1280x720 pixels 30 fps)

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 168.
Supported Memory Cards
–
–
–
–
SD Memory Card
SDHC Memory Card
MMC (MultiMediaCard)
MMCplus (MultiMediaCardplus)
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.
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.

IMPORTANT!
• Never insert anything besides a supported memory card (page 17) into the memory
card slot.
• Should water or any foreign object ever get into the card slot, immediately turn off
the camera, remove the batteries, 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.
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.

Quick Start Basics
IMPORTANT!
• While the “Anti Shake” setting is “D Auto” or “A Camera AS”, half pressing the
shutter will cause the camera to vibrate and emit an operation sound. This is
normal and does not indicate malfunction (page 79).
. Using Quick Shutter
Fully pressing the shutting button without waiting for Auto Focus to operate will record
using Quick Shutter (page 83).
• 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 48) 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.

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 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.
• 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 79) does not work in the S mode and M mode. You can, however,
turn on Camera AS, if you like.
• 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.
31
Pixel
Snapshot Tutorial
. About image sizes
The size of an image indicates how many pixels it contains, and is expressed as
horizontal pixelsxvertical pixels.
8M (3264x2448) size image =
Approximately 8 million pixels
3264*
2448*
VGA (640x480) size image =
Approximately 300,000 pixels
640*
480*
* Unit: pixels
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.

transferring RAW image data to your computer,
you can use software that supports the generalpurpose DNG format to process the image and
convert it to image data that suits your particular

IMPORTANT!
• The camera will not release the shutter unless the flash unit is raised when any one
of the following conditions exists. Be sure to raise the flash unit whenever shooting
with flash is required.
– When shooting with Flash CS, which requires the flash to fire
– When “Flash On” is selected for the flash mode
– When “Auto Flash” or “Red-Eye Reduction” is selected for the flash mode and
the camera judges that flash is required
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 new batteries it takes about 5 seconds.
• Flash charging time and operation are affected by the remaining battery capacity.
The flash will take longer than normal to charge if it is being used when the battery
level indicator is showing
or
while “Alkaline” is selected for the “Battery
Type” setting (page 15).
indicates that the flash is disabled. Replace batteries as soon as possible.
• 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.

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, 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.
Other Useful Flash Features
• Changing the flash intensity (page 86)
• Compensating for insufficient flash intensity (page 86)

NOTE
• When proper focusing is not possible because the subject is closer than the Auto
Focus range, the camera will switch to the Macro Focus range (which does not
include the Super Macro range) automatically (Auto Macro).
• When proper focusing is not possible because the subject is further than the macro
range (which does not include the Super Macro range), the camera will switch to
the Auto Focus range automatically (Auto Macro).
• Auto Macro can be used when recording snapshots only.
• Use of the flash together with Macro Focus can cause the light of the flash to
become blocked, which may result in unwanted lens shadows in your image.
• Whenever you perform an optical zoom operation while shooting with Auto Focus,
Macro Focus, or Manual Focus, a value will appear on the monitor screen to tell
you the focus range, as shown below.
Example: oo cm to 9
* oo is the actual focusing range value.
* Products marketed in some geographic areas display inches and feet.
• Always be sure to select Auto Focus (AF) as the focus mode whenever using face
detection (page 80).
• The following functions are disabled when shooting with Super Macro.
– Zoom (both optical and digital)
– Auto Macro
– Flash
– Flash CS
• The large zoom factor capabilities of this camera can result in images being out of
focus if the camera is moved while shooting with fixed focus. Whenever possible,
mount the camera on a tripod or secure it using some other means before
focusing. If the image is out of focus, either refocus or change to manual focus
(MF) to adjust focus as required.

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 High-speed CS mode, the flash setting automatically becomes ? (flash off).
• Zoom is disabled during continuous shutter operations.
• RAW+, 9M, 3:2, or 16:9 cannot be selected as the image size while High-speed CS
or Flash CS is being used. If you enter the High-speed CS or Flash CS mode while
one of these image sizes is selected, the camera will record 8M size images.
• If 8M is selected as the image size in the High-speed CS mode, selecting a CS
speed of 40 fps will cause 7M (3072x2304) size images to be recorded.
• The maximum number of images that can be recorded during each High-speed CS
or Flash CS session is limited, regardless of how much memory card storage
capacity is available.
•
•
•
•
High-speed CS
Up to 40 images
Flash CS with flash
Up to 3 to 10 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 Triple Self-time cannot be used in the High-speed CS and Flash CS.
The Self-timer cannot be used in the Prerecord (Still image) mode.
When the flash is fired for Flash CS, the greater the number of images setting, the
smaller the flash range (shooting range).
With some BEST SHOT scenes, the current mode dial setting (× (High-speed
CS), ª (Flash CS)) is ignored.

Audio
Your camera has a built-in microphone that can be used to record audio (monaural)
during movie recording.
. Recording Precautions
The camera also records audio. Note the following points
Microphone
when shooting a movie.
– Take care that the microphone is 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.
• When “HD/STD” is selected as the movie mode, turning optical zoom on or off also
turns audio recording on or off. Audio recording is turned off while optical zoom is
turned on, and turned on while optical zoom is turned off. The optical zoom on/off
operation is performed using the control panel. Note that lens operation noise may
be picked up in audio recordings.
• Audio recording cannot be performed while “HS” is selected as the movie mode.
57
Recording Movies
NOTE
• Continuous Auto Focus is performed during movie recording when optical zoom is
turned on while “HD/STD” is selected as the movie mode, regardless of the current
Continuous AF setting. If optical zoom is turned off, continuous Auto Focus is not
performed during movie recording, regardless of the current Continuous AF setting.
• When “HD/STD” is selected as the movie mode and optical zoom is turned off, you
can readjust focus while movie recording is in progress by half pressing the shutter
button. Note, however, that noise produced by the lens operation will be picked up
in the audio recording.
• Focus is fixed during movie recording when “HS” is selected as the movie mode.
• The YouTube mode is disabled automatically during HD movie recording when
“HD/STD” is selected as the movie mode.
• The [BS] button and BEST SHOT feature are disabled during movie recording.
• 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 HighSpeed 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.
• The exposure mode changes to t (Auto) automatically whenever you shoot a
movie with the “STD” or “HD” movie mode (pages 56, 59).
• The aperture, shutter speed, and ISO sensitivity settings (M Mode only) configured
with the snapshot A Mode, S Mode, or M Mode are used when shooting a movie
with the “HS” movie mode (page 59). Note, however, that the shutter speed range
is limited in accordance with the frame rate specified for the high-speed movie.
• The [AEL] button is disabled (AE lock and AF lock do not function) while “HS” or
“HD/STD” is selected as the movie mode.

• 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 CS fps and Prerecord CS time settings the same way as
you configure the High-speed CS setting. Note, however, unlike High-speed
CS, the maximum CS fps setting is 30.
• When recording, keep the shutter button depressed long enough to record at
least six consecutive shutter images.
NOTE
• The following mode dial settings are ignored when shooting with this BEST SHOT
scene: t (Single Shot), × (High-speed CS), ª (Flash CS).
• 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.
• 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 51).

Using the Camera with a Computer
Files and Folders
The camera creates a file and saves it 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 124).
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
Serial number Extension
(4 digits)
Folders
Folders are named from 100CASIO to
999CASIO
There can be up to 900 folders in memory.
• Images recorded with the YouTube mode are
stored in a folder named “100YOUTB”.
100th folder name:
100CASIO
Serial number (3 digits)
• 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 157.
• 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.

Memory Card Data
The camera stores images you shoot in accordance with the Design Rule for Camera
File System (DCF).
. About DCF
DCF is a standard that makes it possible to view and print images recorded on one
manufacturer’s camera on DCF-compliant devices produced by other manufacturers.
You can transfer DCF-compliant images recorded with another camera to this

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 124 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)
Displays a histogram on the monitor screen which you can use to
check the exposure of an image before you shoot it. You also can
display the histogram in the PLAY mode for information about the
exposure levels of images.
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.
137
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.

irritation.
142
Appendix
. Battery Life
• The battery lives noted in the User’s Guide are approximate values until power
fails, based on use of batteries of recommended brands at temperature 23°C
(73°F), and do not guarantee you will be able to achieve operation for the life
noted. Actual battery life is greatly affected by the battery brand, battery production
date, and ambient temperature.
• Leaving the camera on can run down batteries and cause the low battery warning
to appear. Turn off the camera whenever you are not using it.
• Sometimes, the camera may shutdown after the low battery warning appears. If
this happens, immediately replace both of the batteries. Leaving low or dead
batteries in the camera can lead to battery leakage and data corruption.
• Though you could use alkaline batteries when there are no other types of batteries
available, note that the life of alkaline batteries will be very short. Use of
rechargeable Ni-MH batteries is recommended.
. Data Error Precautions
Your digital camera is manufactured using precision digital components. Any of the
following creates the risk of corruption of data in camera memory and camera
malfunction.
• Removing the batteries or memory card while the camera is performing some
operation
• Removing the batteries or memory card while the back lamp is flashing green after
turning off the camera
• Disconnecting the USB cable while communication is in progress
• Low battery power
* Note that continued use of weak batteries can lead to malfunction of the camera.
Replace the batteries with new ones as soon as possible after signs of low
power appear
• Other abnormal operations
Any of the above conditions can cause an error message to appear on the monitor
screen (page 165). Perform the action indicated by the message that appears.
. Operating Environment
• Operating Temperature: 0 to 40°C (32 to 104°F)
• Operating Humidity: 10 to 85% (non condensation)
• Do not place the camera in any of the following locations.
– In an area exposed to direct sunlight, or large amounts of moisture or dust
– Near an air conditioner or in other areas subjected to extreme temperature or
humidity
– Inside of a motor vehicle on a hot day, or in an area subjected to strong vibration
143
Appendix
. Condensation
Sudden and extreme temperature changes, such as when the camera is moved from
the outdoors on a cold winter day into a warm room, can cause water droplets called
“condensation” to form on the interior and the exterior of the camera, which creates
the risk of malfunction. To prevent condensation from forming seal the camera in a
plastic bag before changing locations. Then leave the bag sealed to allow the air
inside to naturally change to the same temperature as the air in the new location.
After that, remove the camera from the bag and open the battery cover for a few
hours.
. Lens
• Never apply too much force when cleaning the surface of the lens. Doing so can
scratch the lens surface and cause malfunction.
• You may sometimes notice some distortion in certain types of images, such as a
slight bend in lines that should be straight. This is due to the characteristics of
lenses, and does not indicate malfunction of the camera.
. Caring for your camera
• Never touch the lens or flash window with your fingers. Finger smudges, dirt, and
other foreign matter on the lens or flash window can interfere with proper operation
of the camera. Use a blower or other means to keep the lens and flash window free
of dirt and dust, and wipe gently with a soft, dry cloth.
• To clean the camera, wipe it with a soft, dry cloth.
. Old Battery Handling Precautions
• Insulate the positive and negative terminals with tape, etc.
• Do not peel the covering off of the battery.
• Do not try to take the battery apart.
. Other Precautions
The camera becomes slightly warm during use. This is normal and does not indicate
malfunction.

Power Supply
To replace the batteries
1.
Open the battery cover and remove the
current batteries.
2.
Load a full set of new batteries.
• If the new batteries are a different type from the
ones you removed, use “Battery Type” (page 15)
to specify the type of the news batteries you are
loading.
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.
• Batteries may become warm to the touch when power is low. This is normal and
does not indicate malfunction.
146
Appendix
. Storage Precautions
• Always remove the batteries from the camera when you are not using it. Leaving
batteries in the camera can cause it to discharge and go dead, which will lead to
malfunction of the camera.
• Remove batteries from the camera if you do not plan to use it for about two weeks
or more.
• Store batteries in a cool, dry place (20°C (68°F) or lower).
. Battery Handling Precautions
Misuse of batteries can cause them to leak or explode, which damages and corrodes
the area around the batteries and creates the risk of fire and personal injury. Make
sure you observe the following precautions when using batteries.
• When loading batteries, make sure their positive + and negative - ends are
facing correctly.
• Never mix new batteries with old ones.
• Never mix batteries of different brands.
• Use only the batteries that are specified for this camera.
• Never try to take batteries apart and always take care to avoid conditions where
their two ends can become connected to each other (shorting). Never expose
batteries to heat or throw them into fire.
• Dead batteries are susceptible to leakage, which can cause serious damage to
your camera. Remove batteries from the camera as soon as you notice they are
dead.
• Remove batteries from the camera if you do not plan to use it for more than two
weeks.
• The batteries that power the camera normally become warm as you use them.
• Use of these battery types is not supported.
A bare battery whose label (insulation) is partially or wholly
peeled off.
A battery whose negative - pole has a raised area or a battery
whole negative pole is not covered by a label (insulation).
A battery whose positive + pole is flat.
147
Appendix
. Alkaline Battery Life
The actual life of alkaline batteries is affected by a variety of factors, including the
battery manufacturer, the amount of time the batteries spend in storage before you
use them, temperature while you are recording, and photographic conditions. As a
rule, we recommend the use of rechargeable Ni-MH batteries, which have longer
lives than alkaline batteries.
• When using alkaline batteries, use of the camera in cold temperatures can shorten
the life of the batteries.
• The PLAY mode requires less power than the REC mode. If you experience a
problem turning on the camera in a REC mode, try switching to the PLAY mode.
148
Appendix
. Using Rechargeable Batteries
In the case of rechargeable batteries, use of one of the rechargeable Ni-MH (nickel
metal hydride) batteries (HR6) listed below is recommended.
• SANYO eneloop (SANYO Electric Co., Ltd.)
• DURACELL RECHARGEABLE (DURACELL, div of P&G Inc.)
• ENERGIZER RECHARGEABLE (Energizer Holdings, Inc.)
IMPORTANT!
• Never mix four batteries of different brands, ages, or charge levels. Doing so
creates the risk of shortened battery life and can even damage the camera.
• Batteries cannot be recharged while they are loaded in the camera.
. Refreshing Rechargeable Batteries
Batteries can start to lose their ability to retain a charge if you do not use them for a
long time or when you charge them repeatedly without allowing their current charge
to be used up completely. If this happens, you may be able to restore battery capacity
by performing the following “battery refresh” operation to fully discharge the batteries.
1. Load the chargeable batteries into the camera.
2. While holding down [MENU], press the power button. This should cause the
firmware version screen to flash on the monitor screen.
3. Leave the camera on until the batteries run out of power and the camera turns off.
• The battery refresh operation can take as long as 10 hours. The actual amount
of time required depends on battery conditions.
4. After the camera turns off, remove the batteries and charge them.
IMPORTANT!
• Performing the battery refresh operation reduces the battery charge level to almost
zero. Never load refreshed batteries into the camera without charging them first.
Though you may be able to momentarily turn on the camera while refreshed
uncharged batteries are loaded, power may suddenly fail, leaving the lens
extended, or some other misoperation may occur.
• You do not need to perform the above operation each time you charge the
batteries. Only use it if you notice that you are getting less operation between
charges. Note that you may eventually reach the point when even the above
operation will not refresh batteries. If this happens, it means that the rechargeable
batteries have reached the end of their service life and that you will need to
purchase new rechargeable batteries.
• The above notes are all based on use of a recommended type of rechargeable
Ni-MH battery.
149
Appendix
Using Household Power
You need to purchase the optionally available AC adaptor (AD-C100) in order to be
able to power the camera using a household power supply.
1.
Connect the power cord to the AC adaptor.
2.
Open the camera’s terminal cover and connect the AC adaptor to the
terminal marked [
].
3.
Plug the power cord into a power outlet.
[

AC adaptor
Power plug
. Using Power in Other Countries
• The AC adaptor is designed for operation with any power supply in the range of
100 V to 240 V AC, 50/60 Hz. Note, however, that the shape of the power cord plug
depends on each country or geographic area. Before taking the camera and AC
adaptor along on a trip, check with travel agent about the power supply
requirements in your destination(s).
• Do not connect the AC adaptor to a power supply through a voltage converter or
similar device. Doing so can lead to malfunction.
150
Appendix
. Precautions when Using the AC Adaptor
• Connecting the AC adaptor to the camera does not charge the batteries.
• Make sure that the camera is turned off before connecting or disconnecting the AC
adaptor.
• If you are connecting the AC adaptor to the camera while it has batteries loaded,
never connect or disconnect the AC adaptor while the camera is turned on.
• The AC adaptor will become warm after long use. This is normal and does not
indicate malfunction.
• Unplug the AC adaptor from the power outlet whenever you are not using it.
• When the AC adaptor is connected to the camera while the batteries are loaded,
the AC adaptor power is given priority.
• Use of the AC adaptor to power the camera is recommended when connected to a
computer.
• Never cover the AC adaptor with a blanket, etc. Doing so creates the risk of fire.
Using a Memory Card
See page 17 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.
151
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 135).
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 135) to completely delete the data in built-in memory
before discarding or transferring ownership of the camera.

• 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.
*1 RAW+ is the total file size of the RAW file and 9M (3456x2592) JPEG file. The image
