● To
focus on your subject, use the AF/AE
lock and focus on another subject that is
roughly the same distance away and has
about the same brightness (➡P.30).
● You can also focus the camera manually.
(An easy solution is to use the one-touch
AF function to focus on a subject that is
roughly the same distance away. ➡P.59)
● If it is too dark to focus, move to roughly 2 m

◆ Subjects Not Suitable for Autofocus ◆
Though the FinePix6900 ZOOM 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.
● Very
shiny subjects such as a mirror or car body.
● Subjects photographed through glass.
● Subjects that do not reflect well, such as hair
or fur.
● Subjects with no substance, such as smoke or
flames.
● When the subject is distant and dark.
● 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).
● When a subject other than your main subject is
close to the AF frame, has good contrast and
is in front of or behind your main subject (such
as a strongly contrasting person standing out
against the background).
● Subjects moving at high speed.
In situations of this sort, use the AF/AE lock
(➡P.30) or manual focus (➡P.58).
Number of Available Frames
The number of available shots appears on the

! See P.97 for information on changing the File size

and Quality setting.
! At shipment, the default settings are J

■Standard number of shots per SmartMedia
Because the amount of data recorded varies depending on the subject, the number of available shots may not
decrease when recording ends, or may decrease by 2 frames. Also, the discrepancy between the actual number of
shots and the standard number of shots tends to be larger when there is more space remaining on the SmartMedia.

◆ AF (Autofocus)/AE (Autoexposure) Lock ◆
On the FinePix6900 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.
30
When you cannot focus and AF/AE lock does not give the correct exposure
● Position the AF frame over your main subject and apply the AE lock (➡P.56). Move the AF frame
to another subject at roughly the same distance and press the shutter button halfway. Holding the
shutter button down halfway, recompose your original shot and take the picture.
Press and hold the shutter button down halfway
(AF/AE lock). The AF frame on the screen
becomes smaller and the camera determines
the shutter speed and aperture setting.
With the shutter button still held down halfway
(AF/AE lock), move the camera back to the
original image and press the shutter button
down fully.
! You can reapply the AF/AE lock as many times as
●
you like before releasing the shutter.
! The AF/AE lock operates in all photography modes
●
and can be used to ensure excellent results.

FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY
i Auto Flash Mode
Use this mode for ordinary photography. The
flash fires automatically as required by the
shooting conditions.
\ 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.
! The \ red-eye reduction flash in “5” or “4” mode
●
fires automatically when required by the conditions.
◆ Red-Eye Effect ◆
52
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 to make Red-Eye Reduction more effective :
● Get the subjects to look at the camera.
● Get as close as possible to the subjects.
7 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.
L 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.

The advantage of this mode is that the
exposure tends not to change for different
compositions or subjects. This mode is
particularly effective for shots of people
wearing black or white clothing and shots of
scenery.
● SPOT
This mode is useful for subjects with
strongly contrasting light and dark areas
where you want to achieve the correct
exposure for a particular feature.

F HOW TO SPECIFY PRINT OPTIONS
DPOF stands for Digital Print Order Format and refers to a format that is used for
recording printing specifications for images shot using a digital camera on media such as
SmartMedia. The recorded specifications include information on which frames are to be
printed and how many prints of each frame are required.
This section gives a detailed description of how to order your prints with the FinePix6900
ZOOM.
✽Note that some printers do not support date and time imprinting or specification of the
number of prints.
✽Note that the warnings shown below may be displayed while you are specifying the
prints.

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 FinePix6900 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 30 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).
● In contact with chemicals such as pesticides or next
to rubber or vinyl products for long periods of time.
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 FinePix6900 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

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.
● The number of available shots 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
■Charging the Battery
●
The battery can be charged using the AC-5VS/AC-5VH
(provided as an accessory or sold separately) AC
Power Adapter supplied with the FinePix6900 ZOOM.

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.

■ SmartMedia
The SmartMedia card supplied with your FinePix6900
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
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, or when the camera is
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
FinePix6900 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.
117
Warning Displays
Notes on the SmartMedia™
●
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.
118
■ 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.
