Connecting or disconnecting the AC power adapter while
the camera is switched on temporarily interrupts the
power supply to the camera, so that images or movies
being shot at the time are not recorded. Failing to switch
the camera off first can also result in damage to the
SmartMedia or malfunctions during PC connection.
!
● Charging times increase at low temperatures.

■ 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.
h Subjects moving at high speed.
h When something other than your subject is close to the
AF frame, has contrasting areas of light and dark and
is either closer or further away than your subject (as
when you photograph someone against a background
with strongly contrasting elements).
For subjects of this type, use AF/AE lock (➡P.28).

short time before using it again.
■ When the Camera is Unused for Long Periods
If you do not intend to use the camera for a long period of
time, remove the battery and the SmartMedia card before
storing the camera.
■ Cleaning Your Camera
h Use a blower brush to remove dust from the lens, LCD
monitor screen or viewfinder as these surfaces, 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.
h Do not scratch hard objects against the lens, LCD
monitor screen or viewfinder as these surfaces are easily
damaged.
h 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.

Notes on the Power Supply
Notes on Using the Battery (NP-60)
This camera uses the Rechargeable Lithium-ion Battery
Pack NP-60. 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-60 is not fully charged. Always
charge the NP-60 before using it.
h When carrying the NP60, install it in a digital
camera or keep it in the
soft case.
Battery
h When storing the NP-60,
(NP-60)
Soft case
place it inside the special
soft case provided.
■ Battery Features
h The NP-60 gradually loses its charge even when not
used. Use a NP-60 that has been charged recently (in
the last day or two) to take pictures.
h To maximize the life of the NP-60, switch the camera
off as quickly as possible when it is not being used.
h The number of available shots will be lower in cold
114
locations or at low temperatures. Take along a spare
fully charged NP-60.
You can also increase the amount of power produced
by putting the NP-60 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
NP-60 directly against the pad. The camera may not
operate if you use a depleted NP-60 in cold conditions.
■ Charging the Battery
h You can charge the NP-60 using the AC Power
Adapter AC-5VS/AC-5VHS.
• The NP-60 can be charged at ambient temperatures
between 0°C and +40°C (+32°F and +104°F). At an
ambient temperature of +23°C (+73°F), it takes
approximately 5 hours to charge a fully depleted
NP-60 battery.
• You should charge the NP-60 at an ambient
temperature between +10°C and +35°C (+50°F and
+95°F). If you charge the NP-60 at a temperature
outside this range, charging takes longer because
the performance of the NP-60 is impaired.
• You cannot charge the NP-60 at temperatures of
0°C (+32°F) or below.
h You can also use the optional BC-60 Battery Charger
to charge the NP-60.
• The NP-60 can be charged using the BC-60 Battery
Charger at ambient temperatures between 0°C and
+40°C (+32°F and +104°F). At an ambient
temperature of +23°C (+73°F), it takes approximately
2 hours to charge a fully depleted NP-60 battery.
• You should charge the NP-60 at an ambient
temperature between +10°C and +35°C (+50°F and
+95°F). If you charge the NP-60 at a temperature
outside this range, charging takes longer because
the performance of the NP-60 is impaired.
h The NP-60 does not need to be fully discharged or
exhausted flat before being charged.
h The NP-60 may feel warm after it has been charged or
immediately after being used. This is perfectly normal.
h Do not recharge a fully charged NP-60.
■ Battery Life
At normal temperatures, the NP-60 can be used at
least 300 times.
If the time for which the NP-60 provides power shortens
markedly, this indicates that the NP-60 has reached the
end of its effective life and should be replaced.
Notes on storage
Lithium-ion Battery Pack NP-60 is both compact and
capable of storing large quantities of power. However, if
It is stored for long periods while charged, the
performance of the battery can be impaired.
h If the battery will not be used for some time, run the
battery flat before storing it.
h Always remove the battery from the camera or battery
charger when it is not being used.
h Place the battery pack inside the soft case 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:
h Do not allow the metal portions of the battery to touch
other metal objects.
h Do not bring the battery close to a flame or throw it
into a fire.
h Do not attempt to disassemble or modify the battery.
h Do not recharge the battery with chargers other those
specified.
h Dispose of used batteries promptly.
To avoid damaging the battery or shortening its
life, observe the following:
h Do not drop the battery or otherwise subject it to
strong impacts.
h Do not immerse the battery in water.
To ensure that you obtain optimum battery
performance, observe the following:
h Always keep the battery terminals clean.
h 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
pictures or viewing images for a long period of time.

■SmartMedia
The SmartMedia card supplied with your FinePix F601
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 battery 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
h Take care to hold the SmartMedia straight when you
load it into your camera.
h 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.
h Use only the SmartMedia specified for use with the
FinePix F601 ZOOM. The use of other SmartMedia
could damage the camera.
h SmartMedia are precision electronic devices. Do not
bend, drop, or subject SmartMedia to excessive
shocks.
h Do not use or store SmartMedia in environments
likely to be affected by strong static electricity or
electrical noise.
h Do not use or store SmartMedia in very hot, humid or
corrosive environments.
h 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.
h 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.

Warning Displays
Notes on the SmartMedia™
118
e The table below lists the warnings that are displayed on the LCD monitor
h 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.
h 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.
h 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.
h 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.
h When you attach the label, take care that it does not
cover any of the write-protect area.
h Always use the camera to erase image data on a
SmartMedia.
h To edit image data, copy the image data to the PC’s
hard disk and then edit the copied data.

Use a SmartMedia that is not write-protected.
h If you intend to take photos using a SmartMedia that
has been used on a PC, format the SmartMedia on
your camera.
h 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.
h 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.
Be sure to use your PC’s disk eject function
(right-click the removable disk icon in the “My
Computer” window and then click “Eject”) when
you eject a SmartMedia from the PC card reader
or PC card adapter.
When you are using a USB connection, you
should also select and left-click the eject button
for “USB disc/mass storage” in the taskbar.
If you do not use the correct eject procedure,
the SmartMedia may be damaged due to writebehind cashing.

✽ These specifications are subject to change without notice.
✽ The LCD monitor on your digital camera is manufactured
using advanced high-precision technology. Even so, small
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.).

Explanation of Terms
DPOF:
Motion JPEG:
WAVE:
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.
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.
EV:
A generic term for cards that meet the PC Card
Standard.
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. This camera
use PCM recording.
WAVE files can be played back on a personal
computer using the following software:
Windows : MediaPlayer
Macintosh: QuickTime Player
✽ QuickTime 3.0 or later
A number that 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.
JPEG:
128
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.
PC Card:
PC Card Standard:
A standard for PC cards determined by the
PCMCIA.
PCMCIA:
Personal Computer Memory Card International
Association (US).
VGA/QVGA:
Graphics standards for PCs. Images are displayed
at 640 × 480 and 320 × 240 pixels respectively.
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.
