Notes on the LCD screen and lens
• The LCD screen is manufactured using
extremely high-precision technology so over
99.99% of the pixels are operational for
effective use. However, some tiny black and/or
bright dots (white, red, blue or green) may
appear on the LCD screen. These dots are a
normal result of the manufacturing process and
do not affect the recording.
Index
When recording movies, it is recommended
that you use the following memory cards:
–
(Mark2) (“Memory
Stick PRO Duo” (Mark2) media)
–
(“Memory Stick PROHG Duo” media)
– SD memory card, SDHC memory card or
SDXC memory card (Class 4 or faster)
• Charge the battery pack (supplied) before using
the camera for the first time.
• You can charge the battery pack even if it is not
completely discharged. In addition, even if the
battery pack is not fully charged, you can use the
partially charged capacity of the battery pack as
is.
• If you do not intend to use the battery pack for a
long time, use up the existing charge and
remove it from the camera, then store it in a
cool, dry place. This is to maintain the battery
pack functions.
• For details on the usable battery pack, see
page 127.

Notes
• If you cannot pan the camera across the entire subject within the given time, a gray area occurs in the
composed image. If this happens, move the camera fast to record a full panoramic image.
• Since several images are stitched together, the stitched part will not be recorded smoothly.
• Under low light conditions, panoramic images may be blurred.
• Under lights that flicker such as fluorescent light, the brightness or color of the combined image is not
always the same.
• When the whole angle of panoramic shooting and the angle in which you fixed the focus and exposure
with AE/AF lock are extremely different in brightness, color and focus, the shooting will not be
successful. If this happens, change the lock angle and shoot again.

• To use a “Memory Stick Duo” media with a “Memory Stick” media compliant device, be sure to insert
the “Memory Stick Duo” media into a “Memory Stick Duo” media Adaptor. If you insert a “Memory
Stick Duo” media into a “Memory Stick” media compliant device without a “Memory Stick Duo” media
Adaptor, you might not be able to remove it from the device.
• When inserting a “Memory Stick Duo” media into a “Memory Stick Duo” media Adaptor, make sure the
“Memory Stick Duo” media is inserted facing in the correct direction, then insert it all the way in.
Incorrect insertion may result in a malfunction.
• When using a “Memory Stick Duo” media inserted into a “Memory Stick Duo” media Adaptor with a
“Memory Stick” media compliant device, make sure that the “Memory Stick Duo” media Adaptor is
inserted facing the correct direction. Note that improper use may damage the equipment.
• Do not insert a “Memory Stick Duo” media Adaptor into a “Memory Stick” media compliant device
without a “Memory Stick Duo” media attached. Doing so may result in malfunction of the unit.

On charging the battery pack
• We recommend charging the battery pack in an ambient temperature of between 10 °C to 30 °C (50 °F to
86 °F). The battery pack may not be effectively charged in temperatures outside this range.
Table of
contents
Battery pack
Effective use of the battery pack
Index
• Fully discharge the battery pack before storing and store it in a cool, dry place. To maintain the battery
pack’s function, fully charge the battery pack and then fully discharge it on the camera at least once a
year while storing.
• To use the battery pack up, leave the camera in slideshow playback mode until the power goes off.
• To prevent staining the terminal, short-circuiting, etc., be sure to use a supplied battery case when
carrying or storing.

How to store the battery pack
Operation
Search
• Battery performance decreases in low temperature surroundings. So in cold places, the operational time
of the battery pack is shorter. We recommend the following to ensure longer battery pack use:
– Put the battery pack in a pocket close to your body to warm it up, and insert it in the camera
immediately before you start shooting.
• The battery pack will run out quickly if you use the flash or zoom frequently.
• We recommend having spare battery packs handy for two or three times the expected shooting time, and
making trial shots before taking the actual shots.
• Do not expose the battery pack to water. The battery pack is not water-resistant.
• Do not leave the battery pack in extremely hot places, such as in a car or under direct sunlight.
• You may not be able to turn on the camera or the battery pack may not be effectively charged if the
terminal section of the battery is dirty. In this case, wipe any dust with a soft cloth lightly to clean the
battery.
On battery life
• The battery life is limited. Battery capacity decreases over time and through repeated use. If decreased
usage time between charges becomes significant, it is probably time to replace it with a new one.
• The battery life varies according to how it is stored and the operating conditions and environment in
which each battery pack is used.
Compatible battery pack
• The NP-BG1 (supplied) can be used only in G type compatible Cyber-shot models.
• If you use the NP-FG1 battery pack (sold separately), the minutes also appear after the battery remaining
indicator (
60 Min).

• NP-BG type, NP-FG type battery packs (and no others) can be charged in the battery charger (supplied).
Batteries other than the specified kind may leak, overheat, or explode if you attempt to charge them,
posing a risk of injury from electrocution and burns.
• Remove the charged battery pack from the battery charger. If you leave the charged battery pack in the
charger, battery life may be shortened.
• The CHARGE lamp of the supplied battery charger flashes in either way:
– Fast flashing: Turns the light on and off repeatedly at the interval of 0.15 seconds.
– Slow flashing: Turns the light on and off repeatedly at the interval of 1.5 seconds.
• When the CHARGE lamp flashes fast, remove the battery pack being charged, and then insert the same
battery pack into the battery charger securely again. When the CHARGE lamp flashes fast again, this
may indicate a battery error or that a battery pack other than the specified type has been inserted. Check
that the battery pack is the specified type. If the battery pack is the specified type, remove the battery
pack, replace it with a new one or another one and check if the battery charger operates correctly. If the
battery charger operates correctly, a battery error may have occurred.
• When the CHARGE lamp flashes slowly, it indicates that the battery charger stops charging temporarily
on standby. The battery charger stops charging and enters the standby status automatically when the
temperature is outside of the recommended operating temperature. When the temperature gets back
within the appropriate range, the battery charger resumes charging and the CHARGE lamp lights up
again. We recommend charging the battery pack in an ambient temperature of between 10 °C to 30 °C
(50 °F to 86 °F).
