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
CAUTION: When disposing of batteries, do so in accordance with your
local waste disposal regulations.

First Steps
3 Cautions
• 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 page 91.
• 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 G card 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.

• Frame rate varies with shutter speed, shooting conditions, and the number of pictures in each burst.
• The number of pictures that can be taken in a single
burst varies with the scene and camera settings. The
number of pictures that can be recorded depends on
the memory available.
• If the self-timer is used when L and N are selected,
only one picture will be taken when the shutter button is pressed.

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.
For Best Results
For best results, be careful not to tilt the camera backward or forward or to either side and try not to move
the camera while y and + are aligned to form a solid
circle.
Framing Panoramas Manually
Follow the steps below if the desired results are not
achieved with C AUTO selected for P PANORAMA MODE:

N Using the Flash (Intelligent Flash)
When the flash is used, the camera’s Intelligent Flash system instantly analyzes the scene based on
such factors as the brightness of the subject, its position in the frame, and its distance from the camera.
Flash output and sensitivity are adjusted to ensure that the main subject is correctly exposed while
preserving the effects of ambient background lighting, even in dimly-lit indoor scenes. Use the flash
when lighting is poor, for example when shooting at night or indoors under low light.

• If a memory card containing a large number of images
is inserted, there may be a delay before the software
starts and you may be unable to import or save images. Use a memory card reader to transfer pictures.
• Make sure that the computer does not display a message stating that copying is in progress and that the
indicator lamp is out before turning the camera off or
disconnecting the USB cable (if the number of images copied is very large, the indicator lamp may remain
lit after the message has cleared from the computer
display). Failure to observe this precaution could result in loss of data or damage to the memory card.
• Disconnect the camera before inserting or removing
memory cards.

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
■ 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.
98
■ 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.
Traveling
Keep the camera in your carry-on baggage.
Checked baggage may suffer violent shocks that
could damage the camera.

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.
