CHECKING THE BATTERY POWER LEVEL
The battery power level indicator represents the level of power of the batteries. The meaning of each icon is as
follows:
A
AWB
Battery power is
not full, but it is still
sufficient for camera
operations.
Batteries are fully
charged.
Battery power is low.
Replace or recharge
(rechargeable
batteries only) as soon
as possible.
A
AWB
Battery power is
running low. Prepare
a fresh set of
batteries.
Batteries are flat.
Replace them
immediately.
Note:
• The camera’s battery level indicator may not accurately reflect the actual power condition of the
rechargeable batteries, even if they have been fully recharged. This is an inherent problem with
rechargeable batteries, which is not related to the performance of the camera. For better performance,
Ni-MH rechargeable batteries are recommended.
• Be sure to remove the batteries if the camera will not be used for an extended period of time to prevent
corrosion or battery leakage.

TURNING THE LCD/ICONS ON OR OFF

and/or the camera. When the card is fully engaged, a click can be heard.
3. Close the Battery/Memory Card door properly and securely. (fig. 1.3)
After inserting the SD card, power on the camera, and the SD card will be checked for its compatibility with the
camera. If it is compatible, the camera will immediately accept it for storage. Otherwise, the camera will prompt
you to format the card before usage. To format the SD card, refer to p. 41.
Removing the Memory Card
1. Gently push the edge of the memory card with your fingertip to eject it.
2. Carefully pull out the card.
If the SD card is locked when the camera is powered on, the Shutter Button will be disabled. In this case, power

The camera judges if a flash is required. If the environment is too dark,
the flash will fire.

Use this mode to reduce the occurrence of “red-eyes” when taking pictures
with a flash. The camera will automatically detect when the flash is needed
and the flash will fire after a short delay.
Flash will fire in any lighting condition. The “red-eye” reduction function also
included in this mode.
In this mode, the flash will not fire, regardless of the lighting condition. Use
this mode to capture the mood of ambient lighting. This mode is also useful
for places that prohibit flash photography, such as museums, aquarium,
archeological exhibitions, etc.
• To prevent blurry pictures in dim-lighting environment, hold the camera
steady when pressing the Shutter button or mount the camera on a tripod.
Note:
• The flash needs to recharge after it is fired. If the Shutter button is pressed when the flash is
charging, the Flash Ready LED will blink. Wait for a short while, then press the Shutter button again to
