◆ Notes on Handling Batteries ◆
h It is recommended that you
use the same brand of alka Outer casing
batteries as those supplied
with the camera.
h Never use a battery when the
outer casing is split or peeling
as this could result in a short-circuit and cause major
problems due to battery fluid leakage or overheating.
h You cannot use lithium, manganese or nickelcadmium (Ni-Cd) batteries.
h Do not use different types of batteries or old and new
batteries together.
h The operating lives of alkaline batteries vary between
brands and the life of batteries you purchase may be
shorter than the alkaline batteries provided with the
camera. Note also that due to the nature of alkaline
batteries, the time for which they can be used is
shorter in cold locations (at temperatures of +10°C
(+50°F) or below). Consequently, Ni-MH batteries are
recommended.
h Soil (fingerprints, etc) on the terminals of batteries can
greatly reduce the time for which the batteries provide
power.
h You will need the optional charger (➡ P.106) to
recharge Ni-MH batteries.
h See P.109 for notes on using batteries.

◆ Subjects Not Suitable for Autofocus ◆
Though the FinePix A203/FinePix A303 uses an accurate autofocus mechanism, it may have difficulty focusing
or not be able to focus at all for the types of subject and situation listed below. In such cases, the image may be
out of focus.
h Very shiny subjects such as a mirror or car body.
h Subjects photographed through glass.
h Subjects that do not reflect well, such as hair or fur.
h Subjects with no substance, such as smoke or flames.
h When the subject is dark.
h When there is very little contrast between the subject
and the background (such as white walls or subjects
dressed in the same color as the background).
h Subjects moving at high speed.
h When something other than your subject is close to the
AF frame, has contrasting areas of light and dark and
is either closer or further away than your subject (as
when you photograph someone against a background
with strongly contrasting elements).
For subjects of this type, use AF/AE lock (➡P.30).

! When you take a shot using the flash, you may see
●
the video image disappear and the screen go dark

orange while the flash is charging.
Auto Flash Mode (Blank)
Use this mode for ordinary photography. The
flash fires automatically as required by the
shooting conditions.
n Red-Eye Reduction
Use this mode to ensure that the subject’s eyes
appear natural when photographing people in
low-light conditions. The flash fires automatically
as required by the photography conditions.
The flash fires a pre-flash just before the picture is
taken and then fires again to take the actual picture.
c Forced Flash
Use this mode to photograph backlit scenes,
such as a subject against a window or in the
shade of a tree, or to obtain the correct colors
when you are shooting under lighting such as
fluorescent tubes. In this mode, the flash fires in
bright as well as dark conditions.
◆ Red-Eye Effect ◆
When you use the flash to photograph people in low-light conditions, their eyes sometimes appear red in
the picture. This is caused by the light of the flash reflecting off the inside of the eye. Use Red-Eye
Reduction flash to effectively minimize the likelihood of the red-eye effect.
Take the following measures also to make Red-Eye Reduction more effective:
● Get the subjects to look at the camera.
● Get as close as possible to the subjects.

The “Camera Connection” section explains how
to connect the camera to your computer using
the special USB cable and describes the
functions you can use once the camera and
computer are connected.
If the power cuts out during data transmission,
the data will not be transmitted correctly. Always
use the AC power adapter when connecting the
camera to a computer.
The first time you connect the camera
to your computer by referring Section 6
You must install all of
the software before
connecting the camera
to your computer.

■ PC CAM (PC Camera) Mode
This function allows you to conduct
videoconferencing sessions between PCs
connected to the Internet (➡P.91).
✽ Videoconferencing (“PictureHello”) is not
supported on Macintosh computers.
✽ Connection is only possible with a FUJIFILM camera
equipped with a “PC Camera” function.
For more information on using the software,
refer to “How to use FinePixViewer” in the HELP
menu which was installed from the CD-ROM.
Always use a FUJIFILM AC Power Adapter AC-3V
(➡P.106).
Use the AC power adapter to avoid losing power
at inconvenient times, such as when you are
downloading photographed images to your
computer. Using the AC power adapter also
allows you to take pictures and play back images
without worrying about depleting the batteries.
✽ See P.111 for notes on using the AC power adapter.
✽ Only connect or disconnect the AC power adapter
when the camera is switched off.
Connecting or disconnecting the AC power adapter
while the camera is switched on temporarily
interrupts the power supply to the camera, so that
images or movies being shot at the time are not
recorded. Failing to switch the camera off first can
also result in damage to the xD-Picture Card or
malfunctions during PC connection.

Notes on Using Your Camera Correctly
eBe sure to read this information in conjunction with “Safety Notes” (➡P.125), to ensure that you use
your camera correctly.
■ Places to Avoid
Do not store or use the camera in the following types of
locations:
h In the rain or in very humid, dirty or dusty places.
h In direct sunlight or in places subject to extreme
temperature rises, such as in a closed car in summer.
h Extremely cold places.
h Places subject to strong vibration.
h Places affected by smoke or steam.
h Places subject to strong magnetic fields (such as near
motors, transformers or magnets).
h In contact with chemicals such as pesticides or next to
rubber or vinyl products for long periods of time.
■ Notes on Immersion in Water or Sand
The FinePix A203/FinePix A303 is particularly adversely
affected by water and sand. When you are at the beach or
close to water, ensure that the camera is not exposed to
water or sand. Take care not to place the camera on a wet
surface. Water or sand inside the camera can cause faults
that may be irreparable.
■ Notes on Condensation
108
If the camera is carried suddenly from a cold location into a
warm place, water droplets (condensation) may form on
the inside of the camera or on the lens. When this occurs,
switch the camera off and wait an hour before using the
camera. Condensation may also form on the xD-Picture
card. In this event, remove the xD-Picture Card and wait a
short time before using it again.
■ When the Camera is Unused for Long Periods
If you do not intend to use the camera for a long period of
time, remove the battery and the xD-Picture Card card
before storing the camera.
■ Cleaning Your Camera
h Use a blower brush to remove dust from the lens, LCD
monitor screen or viewfinder, and then wipe lightly with a
soft, dry cloth. If any soil remains, apply a small amount
of lens cleaning liquid to a piece of FUJIFILM lens
cleaning paper and wipe gently.
h Do not scratch hard objects against the lens, LCD
monitor screen or viewfinder as these surfaces are easily
damaged.
h Clean the body of the camera with a soft, dry cloth. Do
not use volatile substances such as thinners, benzine or
insecticide, as these may react with camera body and
cause deformation or remove the coating.
■ Using the Camera Overseas
When travelling overseas, do not place your camera in the
check-in baggage. Baggage handling at airports may
subject baggage to violent shocks, and the camera may be
damaged internally even when no external damage is
visible.
Notes on the Power Supply
Applicable Batteries
h AA-size alkaline, Ni-MH (nickel-metal hydride) can be
used with this camera.
Do not use AA-size manganese, lithium or nickelcadmium (Ni-Cd) batteries in your FinePix A203/
FinePix A303 because the heat generated by the
batteries could damage the camera or cause
malfunctions.
h The operating lives of alkaline batteries vary between
brands and the life of batteries you purchase may be
shorter than the alkaline batteries provided with the
camera.
Notes on the Batteries
Incorrect use of the batteries could cause them to leak,
become hot, ignite or burst. Always observe the
precautions given below.
h Do not heat the batteries or throw them into a fire.
h Do not carry or store a battery with metal objects
such as necklaces or hairpins that could come into
contact with the metal positive + and negative _
poles of the battery.
h Do not expose the batteries to fresh or sea water,
and take particular care to keep the terminals dry.
h Do not attempt to deform, disassemble or modify the
batteries.
h Do not attempt to peel off or cut the battery casing.
h Do not drop, strike or otherwise subject the batteries
to strong impacts.
h Do not use batteries that are leaking, deformed,
discolored or exhibit any other obvious abnormality.
h Do not store batteries in very warm or moist
locations.
h Keep the batteries out of reach of babies and small
children.
h When loading the batteries into the camera, ensure that
the battery polarity (+ and _ ) is as indicated on the
camera.
h Do not use new batteries together with used
batteries. In the case of rechargeable batteries, do
not use charged and discharged batteries together.
Do not use batteries of different types or brands
together.
h If you do not intend to use the camera for a long
period of time, remove the batteries from the camera.
(Note that if the camera is left with the batteries
removed, the time and date settings are cleared.)
h The batteries may feel warm immediately after being
used. Before removing the batteries, switch the
camera off and wait until the batteries cool down.
h When replacing the batteries, always fit 2 new batteries.
Here, 'new batteries' refers to either recently purchased
unused alkaline batteries, or Ni-MH (nickel metal
hydride) batteries that have recently been fully
recharged together.
h In cold locations (at temperatures of +10°C/+50°F or
below), battery performance deteriorates and the time
for which they can be used shortens markedly. This is
particularly true of alkaline batteries. In cold conditions,
109
Notes on the Power Supply
put the batteries in your pocket or a similar place to
warm them before loading them into the camera. If you
use a body warmer to warm the batteries, ensure that
they are not in direct contact with the warmer.
h Soil (such as fingerprints) on the battery terminals can
markedly reduce the number of available shots. Carefully
wipe the battery terminals clean with a soft dry cloth before
loading the batteries.
If any liquid at all leaks from the batteries, wipe the
battery compartment thoroughly and then load new
batteries.
If any battery fluid comes into contact with your
hands or clothing, flush the area thoroughly with
water. Note that battery fluid can cause loss of
eyesight if it gets into your eyes. If this occurs, do
not rub your eyes. Flush the fluid out with clean
water and contact your physician for treatment.
■ Disposing of Batteries
When disposing of batteries, do so in accordance with
your local waste disposal regulations.
■ Notes on Small Rechargeable Batteries (NiMH batteries)
110
h Always use the special battery charger to charge AAsize Ni-MH batteries. Charge the batteries as
described in the instructions provided with the battery
charger.
h Do not use the battery charger to charge batteries
other than those specified for use with the charger.
h Note that the batteries may feel warm immediately
after being charged.
h Ni-MH batteries are not charged at shipment. Be sure
to charge the batteries before using them.
h The camera mechanism is such that it draws a
minute amount of current even when the camera is
switched off. Take particular care not to leave Ni-MH
batteries in the camera for a long period of time as
they can become excessively discharged and may no
longer be usable even when charged.
h Ni-MH batteries self-discharge even when not used.
Always charge Ni-MH batteries before using them. If
the time for which a battery provides power shortens
markedly when it has been correctly charged, this
indicates that the battery has reached the end of its
effective life and should be replaced.
h Soil (fingerprints, etc) on the terminals of Ni-MH
batteries can greatly reduce the number of available
shots. When this occurs, clean the terminals carefully
with a soft dry cloth. Then use up the remaining
charge in the batteries and recharge them.
h Newly purchased batteries or batteries that have
been left unused for an extended period may not be
fully charged (This is indicated by the immediate
display of the battery low warning or a low number of
available shots). This is a normal characteristic of the
batteries and does not indicate a fault. Repeatedly
charging and using the batteries 3 times or 4 times
will restore them to a normal condition.
h If you repeatedly charge a Ni-MH battery before it is
fully discharged, it will suffer from the “memory
effect” ✽, causing the battery low warning to appear
while there is still ample charge remaining in the
battery. To restore the batteries to their normal
condition, use up all the charge in the batteries before
recharging them.
✽ Memory effect: A phenomenon affecting the battery
characteristics such that the apparent
battery capacity decreases.
touch, but this is normal.
h Do not disassemble the AC power adapter. Doing so
could be dangerous.
h Do not use this device in a place with high temperature
and high humidity.
h Do not drop or subject this device to strong shocks.
h This device may emit a humming noise, but this is
normal.
h If used near a radio, this device may cause static, so play
the radio in a distant place.
AC Power Adapter
Use only the AC-3V AC Power Adapter with your

Notes on the xD-Picture Card
■ Image Memory Card
h This Image Memory Card is a new image recording
media (xD-Picture Card) developed for digital
cameras. The Image Memory Card consists of a
semiconductor memory (NAND-type flash memory)
to record digital image data.
The recording process is electrically performed and
enables erasure of existing image data as well as rerecording of new image data.
h When using a new Memory Card, or a Memory Card
that has been initialized by a PC, be sure to initialize
(format/initialize) the card with your digital camera
before using it.
h
■ Protecting Your Data
h
h Data may be lost or destroyed in the following
situations. Please note that FUJIFILM assumes no
responsibility for data that is lost or destroyed.
1. Removal of the memory card or turning the power
off while the memory card is being accessed (i.e.,
during record, erase, initialization, and playback
operations).
2. Improper handling and use of the memory card by
the user or third party.
h We recommend saving your important data to
another media (i.e., MO disk, CD-R, hard disk, etc.).
■ Notes on Handling xD-Picture Card
112
h Keep xD-Picture Cards out of the reach of small
h
h
h
h
h
h
children. When storing xD-Picture Cards, ensure that
they are kept in a location out of the reach of small
children to prevent a card being accidentally
swallowed. An xD-Picture Card could cause
suffocation if accidentally swallowed. If a child
swallows an xD-Picture Card, seek medical advice
immediately.
Make sure that the memory card is straight when you
insert into the camera etc.
The memory card is a precision electronic
instrument. Do not apply pressure or shock, and
avoid bending.
Do not use the memory card in a hot, humid, or
corrosive environment.
If the contact area on the card is soiled (dust,
fingerprints, etc.), wipe it clean with a soft, dry cloth.
Clean the memory card with a soft dry piece of cloth
when dirty.
When you carry or store it, always keep the card in
the anti-static case provided. Use a storage case if
available.
The memory card can be used reliably for a long
period of time, but will eventually lose its ability to
store and play back image data. At this point, replace
with a new memory card.
Never remove the xD-Picture Card or switch the
camera off during data recording, during data erasing
(xD-Picture Card formatting) or during frame advance
when images are being played back. These actions
could result in damage to the xD-Picture Card.
h The use of xD-Picture Cards is recommended with
the FinePix A203/FinePix A303.
The camera quality cannot be guaranteed when
cards other than those manufactured by FUJIFILM
are used.
h The xD-Picture Card may feel warm when it is
removed from the camera after extended periods of
picture taking or image viewing. This is normal and
does not indicate a fault.
h Do not affix labels to the xD-Picture Card.
This could result in the label peeling off and causing
a fault when the card is inserted or removed.
■ Notes on Using xD-Picture Cards with a PC
h If you intend to take photos using an xD-Picture Card
that has been used on a PC, format the xD-Picture
Card on your camera.
h When you format an xD-Picture Card in the camera
and then shoot and record images, a directory
(folder) is automatically created. Image data is then
recorded in this directory.
h Do not change or delete the directory (folder) names
or file names on the xD-Picture Card from your PC as
this will make it impossible to use the xD-Picture
Card in your camera.
h Always use the camera to erase image data on an
xD-Picture Card.
h To edit image data, copy the image data to the PC’s
hard disk and then edit the copied data.
h Do not copy files other than those that will be used by
the camera.

Safety Notes
DPOF: Digital Print Order Format
DPOF is a format used for recording information on a storage media (image memory card, etc.) that allows
you to specify which of the frames shot using a digital camera are printed and how many prints are made of
each image.
EV:
A number that denotes exposure. The EV is determined by the brightness of the subject and sensitivity (speed) of
the film or CCD. The number is larger for bright subjects and smaller for dark subjects. As the brightness of the
subject changes, a digital camera maintains the amount of light hitting the CCD at a constant level by adjusting
the aperture and shutter speed. When the amount of light striking the CCD doubles, the EV increases by 1.
Likewise, when the light is halved, the EV decreases by 1.
JPEG: Joint Photographics Experts Group
A file format used for compressing and saving color images. The compression ratio can be selected, but the higher the
compression ratio, the poorer the quality of the expanded image.
Motion JPEG:
A type of AVI (Audio Video Interleave) file format that handles images and sound as a single file. Images in
the file are recorded in JPEG format. Motion JPEG can be played back by QuickTime 3.0 or later.
PC Card:
A generic term for cards that meet the PC Card Standard.
PC Card Standard
A standard for PC cards determined by the PCMCIA.
PCMCIA:
Personal Computer Memory Card International Association (US).
White Balance:
Whatever the kind of the light, the human eye adapts to it so that a white object still looks white. On the other
hand, devices such as digital cameras see a white subject as white by first adjusting the color balance to suit
the color of the ambient light around the subject. This adjustment is called matching the white balance. A
function that automatically matches the white balance is called an Automatic White Balance function.
