■ Compatible Memory Cards
FUJIFILM and SanDisk SD, SDHC, and SDXC memory cards have been approved for use in the camera. A complete list of approved memory cards
is available at http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/compatibility/.
Operation is not guaranteed with other cards. The camera can not be used
with xD-Picture Cards or MultiMediaCard (MMC) devices.
Q Memory Cards
• Do not turn the camera off or remove the memory card while the memory card is
being formatted or data are being recorded to or deleted from the card. Failure to
observe this precaution could damage the card.
• Format SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards before first use, and be sure to reformat all
memory cards after using them in a computer or other device. For more information
on formatting memory cards, see “K FORMAT” (P 100).
• 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/SDHC/SDXC 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 SD/SDHC/SDXC memory
card. Use a H card or better when shooting HD or high-speed movies.
First Steps
13
Inserting the Battery and a Memory Card
• The data in internal memory may be erased or corrupted when the camera is repaired. Please note that the repairer will be able to view pictures in internal memory.
• Formatting a memory card or internal memory 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 and internal memory; before editing or renaming files,
copy them to a computer and edit or rename the copies, not the originals.
Q Batteries
• Remove dirt from the battery terminals with a clean, dry cloth. Failure to observe this
precaution could prevent the battery from charging.
• Do not affix stickers or other objects to the battery. Failure to observe this precaution
could make it impossible to remove the battery from the camera.
• Do not short the battery terminals. The battery could overheat.
• Read the cautions in “The Battery and Power Supply” (P vi).
• Use only battery chargers designated for use with the battery. Failure to observe this
precaution could result in product malfunction.
• Do not remove the labels from the battery or attempt to split or peel the outer casing.

Q Panoramas are created from multiple frames. The camera may in some cases record
an greater or lesser angle than selected or be unable to stitch the frames together
perfectly. The last part of the panorama may not be recorded if shooting ends before the panorama is complete.
Q Shooting may be interrupted if the camera is panned too quickly or too slowly. Panning the camera in a direction other than that shown cancels shooting.
Q 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.
z
Choose z for seamless 360° panoramas that can be played back in a loop (P 58).
R The t SAVE DATA SET-UP > SAVE ORG IMAGE option can be used to record a

Technical Notes
Caring for the Camera
To ensure continued enjoyment of the product, observe the following precautions.
Storage and Use
If the camera will not be used for an
extended period, remove the battery
and memory card. Do not store or
use the camera in locations that are:
• exposed to rain, steam, or smoke
• very humid or extremely dusty
• exposed to direct sunlight or very
high temperatures, such as in a
closed vehicle on a sunny day
• extremely cold
• subject to strong vibration
• exposed to strong magnetic fields,
such as near a broadcasting antenna, power line, radar emitter, motor,
transformer, or magnet
• in contact with volatile chemicals
such as pesticides
• next to rubber or vinyl products
Technical Notes
■ 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.
103
Caring for the Camera
Cleaning
Use a blower to remove dust from the lens and LCD 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 lenscleaning fluid has been applied. Care should be taken to avoid scratching the
lens or LCD monitor. The camera body can be cleaned with a soft, dry cloth.
Do not use alcohol, thinner, or other volatile chemicals.
Traveling
Keep the camera in your carry-on baggage. Checked baggage may suffer
violent shocks that could damage the camera.

• Specifications subject to change without notice; for the latest information, visit http://
www.fujifilm.com/products/digital_cameras/index.html. FUJIFILM shall not be held liable for damages resulting from errors in this manual.
• Although the LCD monitor is manufactured using advanced high-precision technology, small bright points and anomalous colors may appear, particularly in the vicinity
of text. This is normal for this type of LCD 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.
