(Vertical shot frame)
Use this frame when you want to
position your main subject in
center of the frame or when you
want to align your shot with the
horizon.
This is the most effective frame
for monitoring the size and
balance of your subject when the
shot involves motion.
Use this frame when you are
shooting groups of 2 or more
people.
By composing the shot so that
your subjects are as large as
possible within the frame, the
photograph will clearly show their
facial expressions.
Use this frame for portrait
photography. Fit the subject’s face
into one of the 3 frames to shoot a
close-up portrait (large frame), a
head and shoulders shot (middle
frame), or a half-body shot (small
frame). Move at least 90 cm
away from the subject and take
the picture using the zoom.

FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY
AM Auto Flash Mode
Use this mode for ordinary photography. The
flash fires automatically as required by the
shooting conditions.
◆ Red-Eye Effect ◆
Z 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 a pre-flash just before the picture
is taken and then fires again to take the actual
picture.
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 :
50
● Get
the subjects to look at the camera.
● Get
as close as possible to the subjects.
M Forced Flash
Use this flash 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.
8 Slow Synchro
This is a flash mode that uses a slow shutter speed. This
allows you to take pictures of people at night that clearly
show both your subjects and the nighttime backdrop.
å Red-Eye Reduction + Slow Synchro

Use this mode for slow synchro shots with red-eye
reduction.

Explanation of Terms
Notes on Using Your Camera Correctly
AF/AE Lock :
e Be sure to read this information in conjunction with before you use this product “Safety Notes”
(➡P.127) to ensure that you use your camera correctly.
On the FinePix4900 ZOOM, pressing the shutter button down half way locks the focus and exposure
settings (AF and AE lock). If you want to focus on a subject that is not centered in the frame or change
the picture composition after the exposure is set, you can obtain good results by changing the
composition after the AF and AE settings are locked.
Auto Power Save If the camera is not used in any way for 15 seconds, this function switches features such as the LCD
Function :
monitor off (Sleep mode) to prevent battery depletion and the waste of power when the AC power
adapter is connected. If the camera is then left unused for a further period, the Auto Power Save function
switches the camera off. This period can be set to 2 minutes or 5 minutes on this camera.
● The Auto Power Off function does not operate in PC mode, during automatic playback, or if it is
disabled during setup.
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.
■ Places to Avoid
■ When the Camera is Unused for Long Periods
Do not store or use the camera in the following types of
locations :
● Very humid, dirty or dusty places.
● In direct sunlight or in places subject to extreme
temperature rises, such as in a closed car in summer.
Extremely cold places.
● Places subject to strong vibrations.
● Places affected by smoke or steam.
● Places subject to strong magnetic fields (such as
places near motors, transformers or magnets).
● For long periods in contact with chemicals such as
pesticides or next to rubber or vinyl products.
If you do not intend to use the camera for a long period
of time, remove the batteries and the SmartMedia card
before storing the camera.
■ Do not expose the camera to sand
The FinePix4900 ZOOM is particularly and adversely
affected by sand. In sandy locations such as beaches
or deserts, or in locations where there is wind borne
sand, ensure that the camera is not exposed to sand.
This can cause faults that may be irreparable.
■ Notes on Condensation
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 SmartMedia card. In this event, remove the
SmartMedia and wait a short time before using it again.
■ Cleaning Your Camera
●
Use a blower brush to remove dust from the lens and
LCD surface and then wipe lightly with a soft, dry
cloth. If any soiling remains, apply a small amount of
lens cleaning liquid to a piece of FUJIFILM lens
cleaning paper and wipe gently.
● Do not scratch hard objects against the lens, LCD
monitor screen or viewfinder as these surfaces are
easily damaged.
● 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.

■ Battery Features
Notes on Using the Battery
●
The FinePix4900 ZOOM camera uses a rechargeable
lithium-ion battery. Note the points below when using
the rechargeable battery. Take particular care to read
the Safety Notes to ensure that you use the battery
correctly.
✽ When shipped, the NP-80 is not fully charged. Always
charge the battery before using it.
● Always remove the battery cap when using the
battery.
● When you are carrying the battery around, load it into
the digital camera or attach the cap.
● When storing the battery, store it with the cap fitted.
Cap
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 battery life, switch the camera off as
quickly as possible when it is not being used.
● In cold locations, the number of frames that can be
shot decreases. 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.
If you are using a heating pad, take care not to place
the battery directly against the pad.The camera may
not operate if you use a depleted battery in cold
conditions.
■ Charging the Battery
Battery
●
Terminal
114
The battery can be charged using the AC-5V/AC-5VH
AC Power Adapter supplied with the FinePix4900
ZOOM. The battery takes approximately 5 hours to
charge.
If you use the BC-80 Battery Charger (sold separately),
the battery can be charged in approximately 70 minutes.
● This rechargeable battery does not need to be fully
discharged or exhausted flat before being charged.
●
The battery may feel warm after it has been charged
or immediately after being used. This is perfectly
normal.
● The battery can be charged at temperatures between
0°C and +40°C (+32°F and +104°F), but should be
charged between + 10°C and + 30°C ( + 50°F and
+86°F) to obtain maximum battery performance.
● Do not recharge a fully charged battery.
■ Battery Life
At normal temperatures, this battery can be used at
least 300 times.
If the time for which the battery provides power
shortens markedly, this indicates that the battery has
reached the end of its effective life and should be
replaced.
Notes on storage
Lithium ion batteries are both compact and capable of
storing large quantities of power. However, if they are
stored for long periods while charged, the performance
of the battery can be impaired.
● If the battery will not be used for some time, run the
battery flat before storing it.
● If the battery is kept in storage for a long period,
charge the battery and then run it flat again at least
once a year.
●
Always remove the battery from the digital camera or
battery charger when it is not being used. Left
installed, minute amounts of current flow even when
unused, and the battery may become excessively
drained and no longer function.
● Attach the cap and store in a cool place.
✽ The battery should be stored in a dry location with an
ambient temperature between + 15°C and + 25°C
(+59°F and +77°F).
✽ Do not leave the battery in hot or extremely cold
places.
■ Handling the Battery
To avoid injury or damage, observe the
following :
●
Do not allow the metal portions of the battery to touch
other metal objects.
● Do not bring the battery close to a flame or throw it
into a fire.
● Do not attempt to disassemble or modify the battery.
To avoid damaging the battery or shortening
its life, observe the following :
●
Do not drop the battery or otherwise subject it to
strong impacts.
● Do not immerse the battery in water.
115
Notes on the Power Supply
To ensure that you obtain optimum battery
performance, observe the following :
●
Always keep the battery terminals clean.
Store the battery in a cool, dry place. Storing the
battery for long periods in a hot location can shorten
the battery life.
If you use the battery for a long period, the camera
body and the battery itself will become warm. This
is normal and is not a malfunction. Use the AC
power adapter supplied with the camera if you are
taking picture or viewing images for a long period
of time.

● Plug the connection cord plug securely into the DC
input terminal of the FUJIFILM Digital camera.
● Turn off the power switch of the FUJIFILM Digital
camera before disconnecting the connection cord
from the FUJIFILM Digital camera’s DC input
terminal. To disconnect, take hold of the plug and pull
it out (do not disconnect it by pulling on the cord).
● Do not use this AC power adapter with any device
except the specified device.
● During use, this AC power adapter will become hot to
touch, but this is not abnormal.

Notes on the SmartMedia™
■ SmartMedia
The SmartMedia card supplied with your FinePix4900
ZOOM camera is a new image recording medium
developed especially for use in digital cameras. Each
SmartMedia card contains a built-in semiconductor
memory chip (NAND flash memory) which is used for
storing digital image data.
Because the data is stored electronically, the stored
image data can be erased from the card and new data
recorded.
■ SmartMedia with IDs
The SmartMedia ID is a SmartMedia that has an
individually assigned identification number. SmartMedia
ID cards can be used with devices that use ID numbers
for copyright protection or other purposes. This camera
accepts SmartMedia ID cards in the same way as
conventional SmartMedia cards.
■ Storing Data
118
In the situations listed below, recorded data may be
erased (destroyed). Please note that Fuji Photo Film
Co., Ltd. accepts no responsibility whatsoever for the
loss (destruction) of recorded data.
✽ When the SmartMedia is used incorrectly by the
owner or a third party
✽ When the SmartMedia is exposed to static electricity
or electrical noise
✽ When the SmartMedia cover is opened or the
SmartMedia removed and the camera is then
switched off during data recording, during data
erasing (SmartMedia formatting) or during frame
advance when images are being played back.
Back up important data onto another medium.
(MO disk, floppy disk, hard disk, etc.)
■ Notes on Handling SmartMedia
●
When inserting the card into the camera, hold the
SmartMedia straight as you push it in.
● Never remove the SmartMedia or switch the camera
off during data recording, during data erasing
(SmartMedia formatting) or during frame advance
when images are being played back. These actions
could result in damage to the SmartMedia.
● Use only the SmartMedia specified for use with the
FinePix4900 ZOOM. The use of other SmartMedia
could damage the camera.
● SmartMedia are precision electronic devices. Do not
bend, drop, or subject SmartMedia to excessive
shocks.
● Do not use or store SmartMedia in environments
likely to be affected by strong static electricity or
electrical noise.
●
Do not use or store SmartMedia in very hot, humid or
corrosive environments.
● Take care not to touch the SmartMedia’s contact area
or allow the area to become soiled. Use a dry lint-free
cloth to wipe away any soiling that does occur.
● To avoid damage caused by static electricity, always
use the special static-free case provided during
transportation or storage, or keep the SmartMedia in
a storage case if available.
● Do not carry SmartMedia in locations such as a
trouser pocket. This could subject the SmartMedia to
excessive force when you sit down, thereby
damaging the SmartMedia.
● The SmartMedia 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.
● Inserting a SmartMedia that is charged with static
electricity into your camera may result in a camera
malfunction. If this occurs, switch the camera off and
then on again.
● Affix the label onto the designated area of the card.
Do not use third-party labels as this can lead to
problems when the card is inserted or removed.
● When you attach the label, take care that it does not
cover any of the write-protect area.
■ Notes on Using SmartMedia with a PC
●
If you intend to take photos using a SmartMedia that
has been used on a PC, format the SmartMedia on
your camera.
● When you format a SmartMedia in the camera and
then shoot and record images, a directory (folder) is
automatically created. Image data is then recorded in
this directory.
● Do not change or delete the directory (folder) names
or file names on the SmartMedia from your PC as this
will make it impossible to use the SmartMedia in your
camera.
● Always use the camera to erase image data on a
SmartMedia.
● To edit image data, copy the image data to the
computer’s hard disk and then edit the copied data.
