◆
Cautions Concerning the Mid-roll Change Function
✻ When a cartridge that has been removed in mid-roll ( j is
displayed) is re-loaded into the camera, if “ B ” blinks in the
film counter, re-load the cartridge once more, avoiding the
following locations.
• Anywhere near a drier, fan, vacuum cleaner, etc., which
has a rotating motor.
• Near an active TV or personal computer display.
✻ If a cartridge is removed in mid-roll j and then loaded into a
camera which does not have the mid-roll change function, the
cartridge will be set to exposed k and can no longer be
used.
28
✻ A cartridge removed in mid-roll k from a camera which does
not have the Mid-Roll Change function cannot be used even
if loaded into this camera.
✻ If a cartridge is removed in mid-roll j and sent to the
processor, all frames on the entire roll will be developed.
Expose all frames on the roll before sending the cartridge to
the processor for development.
✻ The mid-way replacement of cartridges is only guaranteed
with [ENDEAVOR/FOTONEX] cameras equipped with the
MRC function manufactured by Fuji Film. There are cases
where normal operations are not possible when cartridges
containing frames exposed by MRC cameras manufactured
by other companies are used.

be selected.
No display : Multi program flash mode
Fig. 45
Used during normal exposures
The amount of flash released will be automatically
adjusted in accordance with the brightness, distance
and magnification of the subject.
✻ The flash lamp does not fire for bright longdistance scenes.
✻ Refer to page 40 for further details on the Multi
Program flash.
30
Fig. 46
b : Red-eye reduction flash mode
Reduces red-eye
The flash lamp will fire briefly five times (pre-flash),
then fire the sixth time for taking your picture.
✻ The AF lamp sign in the viewfinder eyepiece stays
on from pre-flash to exposure. Do not move the
camera while the AF lamp is on.
About red-eye
When a person is photographed with flash in dim
light, the eyes will sometimes turn out red. This is
because the light from the flash lamp is reflected
back into the lens from the back (retina) of the
person’s eyes.
In addition to using the red-eye reduction mode,
observance of the following is effective in reducing
red-eye.
●
q Have the person being photographed look
directly at the camera lens.
wTake pictures by approaching as close as
possible to the subject.
31
Fig. 47
c : Fill-in flash mode
Used when photographing from windows, in the
shade of trees and for other backlit exposures.
Takes flash exposures even in bright locations.
Fig. 48
d : Flash Off mode
Use when taking pictures using interior light or for
taking distant subjects which the flash lamp light
cannot reach, such as in a theater or stadium.
The flash lamp will not flash.
✻ When taking a picture in dim light in the Fill-in
flash mode, a tripod should be used to avoid
camera shake.
32
Fig. 49
e : Landscape mode
This is used for taking clear landscape pictures or
photographing remote (night) scenes through
glass.
Set the focus in the distance. The flash will not
operate.
✻ This feature will be canceled after every exposure.
✻ When taking pictures in dim light in the landscape
mode, a tripod should be used to avoid camera
shake.
: Night portrait (slow sync) mode
Fig. 50
This is used for taking photographs of people at
night
The camera will enter the slow-shutter red-eye
reduction mode (flash emitted after five pre-flashes)
to enable the clear exposure of both night scenes
and human subjects.
33
✻ This feature will be canceled after every exposure.
✻ As a slow shutter speed is used with the night
portrait mode, ensure that a tripod is used to
prevent camera-shake. It is also important that
the subject remains motionless dur ing the
exposure.
✻ The daylight flash mode, the Fill-in flash mode,
and landscape mode and the night portrait (slow
shutter) mode will be canceled when the power is
switched off.
• To enable the continual use of the landscape
mode and night scene portrait mode, press the
Exposure mode button for two or more
consecutive seconds when selecting the mode
until the mark changes from being illuminated to
blinking. The mode will then remain in place after
exposure to enable continual use. This feature
will be canceled automatically when the power is
switched off.
34
USING THE SELF-TIMER

Subsequent self-timer exposures will be taken at
intervals of between three to six seconds when two
or three consecutive self-timer exposures have been
set.
✻ Do not press the shutter release button while
standing in front of the camera. This may cause a
focusing error or underexposure.
✻ If you want to cancel the self-timer mode, press
the r button again to extinguish the sign r in
Liquid Crystal Display.
✻ The self-timer mode will be automatically
canceled after the exposure has been taken and
when the power is switched off.

power is turned off.
✻ It is recommended to use a tripod when taking
pictures by remote control.
✻ The remote controller may not work properly when
direct sunlight enters the camera’s light sensor
from behind your subject. Use the self-timer in
such a case.
Fit the remote controller holder to the camera strap
for your easy handling.
✻ The battery life is about three years (tested
according to standard test conditions). If the
remote controller no longer operates, contact your
local retailer where you purchased your camera or
our service center. A replacement battery will be
available at cost.

MULTI PROGRAM FLASH
A word on multi program flash
A new function which allows the camera judging the
photographing conditions and automatically adjusting the
quantity of light emitted by the flash according to three different
data (the brightness of the subject, the distance, and the focal
length of the lens). The flash always fires automatically unless
otherwise the subject is bright or too far. This programmed
flash allows anyone to take clean pictures simply.
Some practical examples are introduced to explain the effects.
Fig. 60
●
Cautions Concerning the Mid-roll Change
Function
When colse-up pictures are taken in a dim place with
an ordinary flash, it fires in 100% light quantity. As
the result, the subject is blurred in white. The multi
program flash reduces the light quantity down to
12.5% of the ordinar y quantity (maximum),
preventing pictures blurred in white.
40
Fig. 61
Fig. 62
●
Portrait photography at high brightness
When a person is photographed in bright daylight,
his (her) face is likely to be spotted with the shades
of hair and nose. Even in such a case, the multi
program flash automatically fires to reduce the
shades. It seems unnecessary to use the flash in
bright place. However, you will understand the effect
by comparing a picture taken with the flash used and
a picture taken without using the flash.
●
Photography against the sun
When a person standing by a window or subject with
backlight is photographed, the subject becomes a
shade and an under-exposure may result. In this
case also, the multi program flash automatically
provides the optimum light quantity so that you can
take beautiful pictures.

CAMERA CARE AND CAUTIONS
z Your camera is a precision instrument which requires careful handling. Do not
expose it to shock, liquid, or drop it on the floor.
q If you use the camera at the seaside or in light rain, be careful not to get it
wet. Also be careful not to put the camera in places where it will be easily
exposed to sand-.
w Dropping the camera on the floor or striking it against hard objects
sometimes causes trouble even though it may be in the camera case. Also
do not put the camera in places where it is exposed to vibrations (such as
the trunk of a car).
x If you are not using your camera for a long time, keep it where it will be safe
from heat, moisture, dust, and harmful gases (such as naphthalene which is
