Getting Ready
h Never use the following types of batteries as they could cause serious problems
Outer casing
such as battery fluid leakage or overheating:
1. Batteries with split or peeling outer casings
2. Combinations of different types of batteries or new and used batteries together
h Do not use manganese or Ni-Cd batteries.
h Soil, such as fingermarks on the poles of the batteries can shorten time for which
the batteries can be used.
h The time for which AA-size alkaline batteries (referred to hereafter simply as alkaline batteries) can be used
varies depending on the brand. Some brands of alkaline batteries may stop providing power more quickly
than those supplied with the camera. Note also that due to their nature, the time for which alkaline batteries
can be used decreases in cold conditions (0°C to +10°C/+32°F to +50°F). The use of AA-size Ni-MH batteries
is better for this reason.
h Cradle can be used in combination with camera and to charge rechargeable battery NH-10 (sold separately).
Use Fujifilm Battery charger (sold separately) to charge AA-size Ni-MH batteries.
h See P.98, 99 for other notes on using batteries.
h When first purchased or if left unused for a long period, the amount of time which AA-size Ni-MH
batteries or rechargeable battery NH-10 can be used may be short See P.99 for more information.
h When the surfaces of the rechargeable battery NH-10 terminals have become worn through repeated use or
the battery has been taken out of the camera and left for a long period, the battery may stop supplying power
or may become usable only for shorter periods.
To restore normal battery operation, open and close the battery cover several times to dislodge any soiling on
the terminals.

! Depending on the camera mode and the type of batteries used, the transition from “C” to “V” may occur more

quickly.
to the nature of the battery, the battery low warning may appear early when the camera is used in cold
locations. This is normal. Try warming the batteries in your pocket or a similar location before use.
✽ Battery level warning
1) The camera’s estimation of the remaining battery charge varies greatly depending on the camera operation mode.
Consequently, even if “C” or “V” is not displayed in Playback mode, one of them may appear when you change
to Photography mode.
2) Depending on the battery type and the level of charge in the batteries, the camera may run out of power without first
displaying a battery level warning. This is particularly likely to happen when batteries that have run out of charge
once are re-used.
In situation 2), immediately load new or fully charged replacement batteries.

■ Standard number of frames per xD-Picture Card
The table below shows the standard number of frames for a new xD-Picture Card formatted on the camera. The larger the
xD-Picture Card capacity, the bigger the difference between the actual number of frames and the number shown here. Also,
the size of an image file varies depending on the subject. So the number of remaining shots may decrease by 2 or may
remain the same. For this reason, the number displayed may not show the actual number of frames.
Move the camera slightly so that one of the
subjects is in the AF frame.

PHOTOGRAPHY FUNCTIONS
FOCUSING (DISTANCE)
The distance from the subject to the camera is referred to as the shooting distance.
When the shooting distance is set correctly and the image appears sharp, the image is focused.
■ Two Focusing Methods: AF and MF.
The mechanisms for focusing are AF (Autofocus) and MF (Manual focus).
Cause
Solution
The subject is not in the AF frame.
Use AF lock ✽1 or MF.
h When the aperture is decreased by one step, the shutter speed also
decreases by one step (the dot moves upper left).
h When the aperture is increased by one step, the shutter speed also
increases by one step (the dot moves lower right).
h Combinations that result in the shutter speed or aperture being outside the
available range of settings cannot be selected (white dots).
h In the “N”, “M” and “<” Photography modes, it is easy to select different
settings along this line.
h Selecting settings that run parallel to this line by adjusting the brightness of
the photographed image is referred to as exposure compensation.
Use AF lock ✽1 or MF.
Turn Macro mode on or off ✽2.
The subject is moving too quickly.
Use MF (pre-setting the shooting distance for a shot )
Open
The subject is not suited to AF.
The subject is outside the shooting range.
✽1 Taking pictures using AF lock
The graph at left shows the way the aperture and shutter speed settings can
be changed while maintaining the same exposure level.
(Ap erture)
■ Causes of focusing errors and the solutions
Exposure refers to the light that hits the CCD or the total amount of captured light and determines
the brightness of the image.
The exposure is determined by the combination of aperture and shutter speed. In AE (automatic
exposure), the camera determines the correct exposure, allowing for factors such as the brightness
of the subject and the sensitivity setting.
Closed
AF: In this mode, the camera automatically focuses on the subject in the AF frame. The camera
focuses when the shutter button is pressed down halfway.
MF: The focus is set manually. See P.48 for details.

! The wide conversion lens and built-in flash cannot be used together.
●
! When using the wide conversion lens, there is a possibility of ghost images✽ in shots that are taken facing towards the sun

or very strong light.
This risk can be decreased or eliminated by framing the shot so that bright light sources such as the sun are out of the
shot as much as possible.
! Keep the ring cover in a safe place after removing it.

correctly.
xD-Picture Card. In this event, remove the xD■ Places to Avoid
Do not store or use the camera in the following types
of locations:
h In the rain or in very humid, dirty or dusty places
h In direct sunlight or in places subject to extreme
temperature rises, such as in a closed car in
summer
h Extremely cold places
h Places with strong vibration
h Places with smoke or steam
h Places subject to strong magnetic fields (such as
near motors, transformers or magnets)
h In contact with chemicals such as pesticides
h Next to rubber or vinyl products
■ Damage by Water or Sand
The FinePix E500 / FinePix E510 can be damaged on
the inside and outside by water and sand. When you
are at the beach or close to water, make sure that the
camera is not damaged by water or sand. Take care
not to place the camera on a wet surface.
■ Damage by Condensation
If the camera is carried 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, turn the camera off and wait an hour before
using the camera. Condensation may also form on the
Picture Card and wait a short time.
■ When the Camera is Not Used or is stored
Periods of Time
If you do not intend to use the camera for a long period
of time, remove the batteries and the xD-Picture Card.
■ Cleaning Your Camera
h Use a blower brush to brush away any dust on the
lens, LCD monitor or viewfinder, and then gently
wipe the camera with a soft, dry cloth. If any soil
remains, apply a small amount of lens cleaning
liquid to a piece of FUJIFILM lens cleaning paper
and wipe gently.
h Do not scratch hard objects against the lens, LCD
monitor or viewfinder.
h Clean the body of the camera with a soft, dry cloth.
Do not use volatile substances or cleaning products
these items can cause damage.
■ Using the Camera When Traveling
When traveling overseas, do not place your camera in
the check-in baggage. Baggage can be subjected
violent shocks, and the camera may be damaged
inside or outside.
Power Supply and Batteries
Applicable Batteries
h In the camera, use AA-size alkaline or nickel-metal
hydride batteries and the rechargeable battery NH10.
Do not use AA-size manganese or nickel-cadmium
(Ni-Cd) batteries in your FinePix E500 / FinePix
E510 because the heat created by the batteries
could damage the camera or cause it not to work.
h The life of alkaline batteries varies between brands.
The life of batteries you purchase may be shorter
than those provided with the camera.
Notes on the Batteries
98
Incorrect use of the batteries could cause them to
leak, become hot, ignite or burst. Always observe the
precautions given below.
h Do not heat the batteries or throw them into a fire.
h Do not carry or store batteries with metal objects
such as necklaces or hairpins.
h Do not expose the batteries to water, and keep
batteries from getting wet or stored in moist
locations.
h Do not attempt to take apart or change the batteries,
including battery casings.
h Do not subject the batteries to strong impacts.
h Do not use batteries that are leaking, deformed,
discolored.
h Do not store batteries in warm or humid places.
h Keep the batteries out of reach of babies and small
children.
h Make sure that the battery polarity (≠ and – ) is
correct.
h Do not use new with used batteries. Do not use
charged and discharged batteries together.
h Do not use different types or brands of batteries at
the same time.
h If you do not intend to use the camera for a long
period of time, remove the batteries from the camera
(Note if the camera is left with the batteries
removed, the time and date settings are cleared).
h The batteries feel warm right after being used.
Before removing the batteries, turn the camera off
and wait for the batteries to cool down.
h Since batteries do not work well in cold weather or
locations, warm the batteries by placing then inside
your garments before use. Batteries do not work well
when cold. They will work again when their
temperature returns to normal.
h Soil (such as fingerprints) on the battery terminals
makes the batteries charge less reducing the
number of images. Carefully wipe the battery
terminals with a soft dry cloth before loading.
If any liquid at all leaks from the batteries, wipe
the battery compartment thoroughly and then
load new batteries.
If any battery fluid comes into contact with your
hands or clothing, flush the area thoroughly
with water. Note that battery fluid can cause
loss of eyesight if it gets into your eyes. If this
occurs, do not rub your eyes. Flush the fluid
out with clean water and contact your physician
for treatment.
■ Disposing of Batteries
When disposing of batteries, do so in accordance with
your local waste disposal regulations.
Using the AA-size Ni-MH Batteries and the
Rechargeable Battery NH-10 Correctly
h As a power source in digital cameras, AA-size NiMH batteries and the Rechargeable Battery NH-10
(referred to hereafter as Ni-MH batteries) are
superior to alkaline batteries in several ways, such
as allowing more shots to be taken with the camera.
However, care must be taken with the way Ni-MH
batteries are used if their original performance is to
be maintained.
h Ni-MH batteries left unused in storage for long
periods can become “deactivated”. Also, repeatedly
charging Ni-MH batteries that are only partially
discharged can cause them to suffer from the
“memory effect”.
Ni-MH batteries that are “deactivated” or affected by
“memory” suffer from the problem of only providing
power for a short time after being charged. To
prevent this problem, discharge and recharge them
several times using the camera’s “Discharging
rechargeable batteries” function. By repeating this
cycle several times, the temporary reduction in
performance caused by “memory” or “deactivation”
can be remedied and the batteries can be restored
to their original performance levels.
Deactivation and memory are specific to Ni-MH
batteries and are not in fact battery faults. See
P.100 for the procedure for “Discharging
rechargeable batteries”.
repeated discharge-charge cycles, it may have
reached the end of its service life.
AC Power Adapter
Always use the AC-3V AC Power Adapter (sold
separately) or the AC-3VW AC Power Adapter
(supplied with PictureCradle sold separately). The use
of an AC Power adapter other than AC-3V/AC-3VW
can cause damage to your digital camera.
h The AC-3V cannot be used to charge the NH-10
Rechargeable Battery.
h Use AC power adapter for indoor use only.
h Plug the connection cord plug securely into the DC
input terminal of the FUJIFILM Digital camera.
h Turn off the FUJIFILM Digital camera before
disconnecting the cord from the FUJIFILM Digital
camera’s DC input terminal. To disconnect, pull out
the plug gently. Do not pull on the cord.
h Do not use the AC power adapter with any device
other than your camera.
h During use, the AC power adapter will become hot
to the touch. This is normal.
h Do not take apart the AC power adapter. Doing so
could be dangerous.
h Do not use the AC power adapter in a hot humid
place.
h Do not subject the AC power adapter to strong
shocks.
h The AC power adapter may emit a humming. But
this is normal.
h If used near a radio, the AC power adapter may
cause static. If this happens, move the camera away
from the radio.
Do not use the “Discharging rechargeable
batteries” function when alkaline batteries are
being used.
h 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.
h Do not use the battery charger to charge other
batteries.
h Note that the batteries feel warm after being
charged.
h 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 and the Rechargeable Battery NH-10 in the
camera for a long period will overdischarge the
batteries and may render them unusable even after
recharging.
h Ni-MH batteries and the Rechargeable Battery NH10 will self-discharge even when not used, and the
time for which they can be used may be shortened
as a result.
h Rechargeable Battery NH-10 can be charged by
setting the camera in the PictureCradle CP-FXA10
(sold separately).
h Ni-MH batteries cannot be charged using a
combination of the camera and the cradle.
h Ni-MH batteries will deteriorate rapidly if
overdischarged (e.g. by discharging the batteries in
a flashlight). Use the “Discharging rechargeable
batteries” function provided in the camera to
discharge the batteries.
h Ni-MH batteries have a limited service life. If a
battery can only be used for a short time even after

Notes on the xD-Picture Card™
Power Supply and Batteries
Procedure for discharging rechargeable Ni-MH batteries
The “Discharging rechargeable batteries” function can only be used with Ni-MH
batteries.
The “Discharging rechargeable batteries” function should not be used with
alkaline batteries as it will completely drain the battery charge.
Use the “Discharging rechargeable batteries” function in the following situations:
i When the batteries can only be used for a short time after being charged normally
i When the batteries have not been used for a long period
i When you purchase new Ni-MH batteries
Do not use the “Discharging rechargeable batteries” function when the camera is set in the cradle or
while using the AC power adapter. In these situations, the Ni-MH batteries will not be discharged
due to the external power supply.

h This Image Memory Card is a new image recording
media (xD-Picture Card) developed for digital
cameras. The Image Memory Card consists of a
semiconductor memory (NAND-type flash memory)
to record digital image data.
The recording process is electrically performed and
enables erasure of existing image data as well as rerecording of new image data.
h When using a new Memory Card, or a Memory Card
that has been formatted by a PC, be sure to format
the card with your digital camera before using it.
■ Protecting Your Data
h Images and movies may be lost or destroyed in the
following situations. Please note that FUJIFILM
assumes no responsibility for data that is lost or
destroyed.
1. Removal of the memory card or turning the power
off while the memory card is being accessed (i.e.,
during record, erase, initialization, and playback
operations).
2. Improper handling and use of the memory card by
the user or third party.
h Save your important data to another media (i.e., MO
disk, CD-R, hard disk, etc.).

bright points and anomalous colors (particularly around text) may appear on the monitor. These are normal display
characteristics and do not indicate a fault with the monitor. This phenomenon will not appear on the recorded image.
✽ The operation error may be caused in a digital camera by the strong radio interference (i. e. electric fields, static
electricity, line noise, etc.).
✽ Due to the nature of the lens, the edges of images may appear distorted. This is normal.

Explanation of Terms
Safety Notes
Deactivated batteries
Leaving an Ni-MH battery unused in storage for a long period may cause a rise in the level of substances that
inhibit current flow inside the battery and result in a dormant battery. A battery in this state is referred to as
deactivated.
Because current flow is inhibited in a deactivated Ni-MH battery, the battery’s original level of performance cannot
be achieved.
h Make sure that you use your FinePix E500 / FinePix
E510 camera correctly. Read these Safety Notes
and your Owner’s Manual carefully before use.
h After reading these Safety Notes, store them in a
safe place.
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 to be printed and how many prints are made of each
image.
The icons shown below are used in this document to
indicate the severity of the injury or damage that can
result if the information indicated by the icon is ignored
and the product is used incorrectly as a result.
EV
A number denotes Exposure Value. 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.
Frame rate (fps)
The frame rate refers to the number of images (frames) that are photographed or played back per second. For
example, when 10 frames are continuously photographed in a 1-second interval, the frame rate is expressed as 10 fps.
For reference, TV images are displayed at 30 fps (NTSC).
JPEG
Joint Photographic Experts Group
A file format used for compressing and saving color images. The higher the compression rate, the greater the loss
of quality in the decompressed (restored) image.
Memory effect
If an Ni-MH battery is repeatedly charged without first being fully discharged, its performance may drop below its
original level. This is referred to as the “memory effect”.
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).
Smear
A phenomenon specific to CCDs whereby white streaks appear on the image when there is a very strong light
source, such as the sun or reflected sunlight, in the photography screen.
WAVE
A standard format used on Windows systems for saving audio data. WAVE files have the “.WAV” file extension and
the data can be saved in either compressed or uncompressed format. Uncompressed recording is used on this
camera.
WAVE files can be played back on a personal computer using the following software:
Windows: MediaPlayer
Macintosh: QuickTime Player
✽ QuickTime 3.0 or later
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.
