Antennas
Outdoor Antenna Grounding: If an
outside antenna or cable system is
connected to the video product, be
sure the antenna or cable system
is grounded so as to provide some
protection against voltage surges
and built-up static charges. Section
810 of the National Electrical Code,
ANSI/NFPA No. 70, provides information with respect to proper grounding
of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire
to an antenna-discharge unit, size of
grounding conductors, location of
antenna-discharge unit, connection
to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode.
For Your Safety
Power Lines: An outside antenna system should not be located in the
vicinity of overhead power lines or
other electric light or power circuits,
or where it can fall into such power
lines or circuits. When installing an
outside antenna system, extreme
care should be taken to keep from
touching such power lines or circuits
as contact with them might be fatal.

For Your Safety
Power Supply and Battery
* Confirm your battery type before reading the following descriptions.
The following explains proper use of
batteries and how to prolong their
life. Incorrect use of batteries can
cause shorter battery life, as well as
leakage, excessive heat, fire or explosion.
1 Camera uses the Rechargeable
Lithium-ion Battery
* When shipped, the battery is not
fully charged. Always charge the
battery before using it.
* When carrying the battery, install it
in a digital camera or keep it in the
soft case.
■ Battery Features
• The battery gradually loses its
charge even when not used. Use
a battery that has been charged
recently (in the last day or two) to
take pictures.
• To maximize the life of the battery,
turn the camera off as quickly as
possible when it is not being used.
• The number of available frames will
be lower in cold locations or at low
temperatures. Take along a spare
fully charged battery. You can also
increase the amount of power produced by putting the battery in
your pocket or another warm place
to heat it and then loading it into
the camera just before you take a
picture.

batteries”.
CAUTION
Do not use the “Discharging rechargeable batteries” function when
alkaline batteries being used.
• To charge Ni-MH batteries, use the
quick battery charger (sold separately). Refer to the instructions
supplied with the charger to make
sure that the charger is used correctly.
• Do not use the battery charger to
charge other batteries.
• Note that the batteries feel warm
after being charged.
• Due to the way the camera is constructed, a small amount of current
is used even when the camera is
turned off. Note in particular that
leaving Ni-MH batteries in the
camera for a long period will overdischarge the batteries and may
render them unusable even after
recharging.
• Ni-MH batteries will self-discharge
even when not used, and the time
for which they can be used may be
shortened as a result.
• Ni-MH batteries will deteriorate
rapidly if over-discharged (e.g.
by discharging the batteries in a
flashlight). Use the “Discharging rechargeable batteries” function provided in the camera to discharge
the batteries.
• Ni-MH batteries have a limited
service life. If a battery can only
be used for a short time even after
repeated discharge-charge cycles,
it may have reached the end of its
service life.
■ Disposing of Batteries
• When disposing of batteries, do
so in accordance with your local
waste disposal regulations.

• Memory cards are small and can be swallowed; keep out of reach of children. If a child swallows a memory card,
seek medical assistance immediately.
• miniSD or microSD adapters that are larger or smaller than the standard dimensions of an SD card may not eject
normally; if the card does not eject, take the camera to an authorized service representative. Do not forcibly
remove the card.
• Do not affix labels to memory cards. Peeling labels can cause camera malfunction.
• Movie recording may be interrupted with some types of memory card. Use a card with a class 4 write speed
(4 MB/s) or better when shooting HD movies.
• Formatting a memory card in the camera creates a folder in which pictures are stored. Do not rename or delete
this folder or use a computer or other device to edit, delete, or rename image files. Always use the camera to
delete pictures from memory cards; before editing or renaming files, copy them to a computer and edit or rename the copies, not the originals.

3 Cautions
• Panoramas are created from multiple frames. The
camera may in some cases be unable to stitch the
frames together perfectly.
• The desired results may not be achieved with moving subjects, subjects close to the camera, unvarying
subjects such as the sky or a field of grass, subjects
that are in constant motion, such as waves and waterfalls, or subjects that undergo marked changes in
brightness. Panoramas may be blurred if the subject
is poorly lit.

To give a deliberate color cast to your photographs,
measure a value for custom white balance using a colored instead of a white object.
Menus
1 Notes
• At settings other than h, auto white balance is used
with the flash. Lower the flash (pg. 36) to take pictures at other settings.
• Results vary with shooting conditions. Play pictures
back after shooting to check colors in the monitor.
■ h: Custom White Balance
Choose h to adjust white balance for unusual
lighting conditions. White balance measurement
options will be displayed; frame a white object so
that it fills the monitor and press the shutter button all the way down to measure white balance.

H SHARPNESS
Choose whether to sharpen or soften outlines.
• HARD: Use for sharp outlines when photographing such subjects as buildings and text.
• STANDARD: Standard sharpness. Best choice in
most situations.
• SOFT: Use for soft outlines in portraits and similar
subjects.
80
C PHOTOMETRY
Choose how the camera meters exposure when
Intelligent Face Detection is off.
• o MULTI: Automatic scene recognition is used
to adjust exposure for a wide range of shooting
conditions.
• p SPOT: The camera meters lighting conditions
at the center of the frame. Recommended when
the background is much brighter or darker than
the main subject. Can be used with focus lock
(pg. 33) to meter off-center subjects.
• q AVERAGE: Exposure is set to the average for
the entire frame. Provides consistent exposure
across multiple shots with the same lighting,
and is particularly effective for landscapes and
portraits of subjects dressed in black or white.
Using the Menus: Shooting Mode
F AF MODE
This option controls how the camera selects the
focus area when Intelligent Face Detection is off
(pg. 31). Regardless of the option selected, the
camera will focus on the subject in the center of
the monitor when macro mode is on (pg. 35).
• r CENTER: The camera focuses on the subject in
the center of the frame. This option can be used
with focus lock (pg. 33).
• s MULTI: When the shutter button is pressed
halfway, the camera detects high-contrast subjects near the center of the frame and selects
the focus area automatically (if the focus frame is
not displayed, select r CENTER and use focus

Caring for the Camera
To ensure continued enjoyment of the product, observe the following precautions.
■ Water and Sand
Exposure to water and sand can also damage the
camera and its internal circuitry and mechanisms.
When using the camera at the beach or seaside,
avoid exposing the camera to water or sand. Do
not place the camera on a wet surface.
■ Condensation
Sudden increases in temperature, such as occur
when entering a heated building on a cold day,
can cause condensation inside the camera. If this
occurs, turn the camera off and wait an hour before turning it on again. If condensation forms on
the memory card, remove the card and wait for
the condensation to dissipate.
Cleaning
Use a blower to remove dust from the lens and
monitor, then gently wipe with a soft, dry cloth.
Any remaining stains can be removed by wiping
gently with a piece of FUJIFILM lens-cleaning paper to which a small amount of lens-cleaning fluid
has been applied. Care should be taken to avoid
scratching the lens or monitor. The camera body
can be cleaned with a soft, dry cloth. Do not use
alcohol, thinner, or other volatile chemicals.
Technical Notes

Glossary
Digital zoom: Unlike optical zoom, digital zoom does not increase the amount of visible detail. Instead, details visible using optical zoom are simply enlarged, producing a slightly “grainy” image.
DPOF (Digital Print Order Format): A standard that allows pictures to be printed from “print orders” stored
on a memory card. The information in the order includes the pictures to be printed and the number of
copies of each picture.
Appendix
EV (Exposure Value): The exposure value is determined by the sensitivity of the image sensor and the amount
of light that enters the camera while the image sensor is exposed. Each time the amount of light doubles, EV
increases by one; each time the amount of light is halved, EV decreases by one. The amount of light entering the
camera can be controlled by adjusting aperture and shutter speed.
Exif Print: A standard for storing information with pictures for optimal color reproduction during printing.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface): An interface standard for the transmission of images and sound that
adds audio input to the DVI interface used to connect computers to displays.
JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group): A compressed file format for color images. The higher the compression
rate, the greater the loss of information and more noticeable drop in quality when the picture is displayed.
Motion JPEG: An AVI (Audio Video Interleave) format that stores sound and JPEG images in a single file. Motion JPEG
files can be played in Windows Media Player (requires DirectX 8.0 or later) or QuickTime 3.0 or later.
Smear: A phenomenon specific to CCDs which causes white streaks to appear when very bright light sources, such
as the sun or reflected sunlight, appear in the frame.
WAV (Waveform Audio Format): A standard Windows audio file format. WAV files have the extension “*.WAV” and
may be compressed or uncompressed. The camera uses uncompressed WAV. WAV files can be played using
Windows Media Player or QuickTime 3.0 or later.
White balance: The human brain automatically adapts to changes in the color of light, with the result that objects
that appear white under one light source still appear white when the color of the light source changes. Digital
cameras can mimic this adjustment by processing images according to the color of the light source. This process
is known as “white balance.”
117
Memory Card Capacity
The following table shows the recording time or number of pictures available at different image sizes.
All figures are approximate; file size varies with the scene recorded, producing wide variations in the
number of files that can be stored. The number of exposures or length remaining may not diminish
at an even rate.

Notices
• Specifications subject to change without notice. FUJIFILM shall not be held liable for damages resulting from
errors in this manual.
• Although the monitor is manufactured using advanced high-precision technology, small bright points and
anomalous colors (particularly in the vicinity of text) may appear. This is normal for this type of monitor and
does not indicate a malfunction; images recorded with the camera are unaffected.
• Digital cameras may malfunction when exposed to strong radio interference (e.g., electric fields, static electricity, or line noise).
• Due to the type of lens used, some distortion may occur at the periphery of images. This is normal.
