The table below shows the standard number of available shots for a new xD-Picture Card formatted on the camera. The
larger the xD-Picture Card capacity, the greater the divergence between the actual number of available shots and the
number shown here. Also, because the amount of data recorded for a shot varies depending on the subject, in some cases
the number of shots may decrease by 2 or may remain the same. As a result, the actual number of recordable shots may
either decrease or increase.

STILL IMAGE MODE
FOCUSING (DISTANCE)
STILL IMAGE MODE
FOCUSING
EXPOSURE (SHUTTER SPEED AND APERTURE)
EXPOSURE
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 (auto focus) and MF (manual focus).
The graph at left shows the way the aperture and shutter speed settings can
be changed while maintaining the same exposure level.
Closed
AF: In this mode, the camera automatically focuses on the subject in the AF frame or the subject
at or near the center of the image.
MF: Allows you to set the focus manually. See P.55 for details.
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 automatically determines the correct exposure, allowing for factors such as
the brightness of the subject and the ISO setting.
h When the exposure is decreased by one step, the shutter speed also
decreases by one step (the dot moves up and left).
h When the exposure is increased by one step, the shutter speed also
increases by one step (the dot moves down and 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.
■ Causes of Focusing Errors and the Solutions
Solution
Use AF lock (Focus mode: AF (CENTER))✽1 or MF.
The subject is outside the shooting range.
Switch Macro mode on or off (✽2).
The subject is moving too quickly.
Use MF (pre-setting the shooting distance for a shot (lock pin))
(Aperture)
Cause
The subject is not suited to AF.

Exposure compensation:
This function uses the exposure level set

brightens (+) or darkens (–) the image. By selecting
Auto Bracketing, you can shoot 3 frames, one
underexposed (–), one at the reference exposure (0)
and one overexposed (+).
Shutter Speed
When you are shooting a moving subject, you can either “freeze the motion” or “capture the sense
of movement” by adjusting the shutter speed.

◆ Subjects Not suitable for Auto Focus ◆
h Very shiny subjects such as a mirror or car
body.
h Subjects photographed through glass.
h Subjects that do not reflect well, such as hair
or fur.
h Subjects with no substance, such as smoke or
flames.
h When the subject is dark.
h When there is very little contrast between the
subject and the background (such as white
34
walls or subjects dressed in the same color as
the background).
h Subjects moving at high speed.
h When there is a high-contrast subject other
than the main subject at or near the center of
the image and that subject is closer to or
further from the camera than the main subject
(as when you photograph someone against a
background with strongly contrasting
elements).
Aperture
By adjusting the aperture, you can change the depth of focus (depth of field).
Closed
The area in front of and
behind the subject is also in
focus in the shot.

■ Places to Avoid
■ Handling the Battery
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 subject to strong vibration.
h Places affected by 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 or next to
rubber or vinyl products for long periods of time.
■ Notes on Immersion in Water or Sand
The FinePix F700 is particularly adversely affected by
water and sand. When you are at the beach or close to
water, ensure that the camera is not exposed to water or
sand. Take care also not to place the camera on a wet
surface. Water or sand inside the camera 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 xD-Picture
■ 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 xD-Picture card before
storing the camera.
■ Cleaning Your Camera
h Use a blower brush to remove dust from the lens and
LCD monitor screen 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 and LCD
monitor screen 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-40)
This camera uses the Rechargeable Lithium-ion Battery
Pack NP-40. 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-40 is not fully charged. Always
charge the NP-40 before using it.
h When carrying the NP-40,
install it in a digital camera
or keep it in the soft case.
h When storing the NP-40,
Battery
place it inside the special
(NP-40)
soft case provided.
Soft case
■ Battery Features
h The NP-40 gradually loses its charge even when not
used. Use a NP-40 that has been charged recently (in
the last day or two) to take pictures.
h To maximize the life of the NP-40, 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
locations or at low temperatures. Take along a spare
fully charged NP-40.
You can also increase the amount of power produced by
putting the NP-40 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-40 directly against the pad. The camera may not
operate if you use a depleted NP-40 in cold conditions.
■ Charging the Battery
92
h You can charge the battery using the camera and the AC
power adapter (supplied).
i The NP-40 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 2 hours to charge a fully depleted
NP-40 battery.
i You should charge the NP-40 at an ambient
temperature between +10°C and +35°C (+50°F and
+95°F). If you charge the NP-40 at a temperature
outside this range, charging takes longer because the
performance of the NP-40 is impaired.
i You cannot charge the NP-40 at temperatures of 0°C
(+32°F) or below.
h
short time before using it again.
h You can also use the optional Battery Charger BC-65 to
charge the NP-40. When charging, use the NP-40
battery adapter supplied with the BC-65 (Refer to the
Owner’s Manual for details).
i The NP-40 can be charged using the BC-65 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 90 minutes to
charge a fully depleted NP-40 battery.
i You should charge the NP-40 at an ambient
temperature between +10°C and +35°C (+50°F and
+95°F). If you charge the NP-40 at a temperature
outside this range, charging takes longer because the
performance of the NP-40 is impaired.
h The NP-40 does not need to be fully discharged or
exhausted flat before being charged.
h The NP-40 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-40.
■ Battery Life
At normal temperatures, the NP-40 can be used at least
300 times.
If the time for which the NP-40 provides power shortens
markedly, this indicates that the NP-40 has reached the
end of its effective life and should be replaced.
Notes on storage
The Lithium-ion Battery Pack NP-40 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.

To avoid injury or damage, observe the following:
Do not allow the metal portions of the battery to touch
other metal objects.
Do not bring the battery close to a flame or throw it into a
fire.
Do not attempt to disassemble or modify the battery.
Do not recharge the battery with chargers other those
specified.
Dispose of used batteries promptly.
To avoid damaging the battery or shortening its
life, observe the following:
Do not drop the battery or otherwise subject it to strong
impacts.
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.

static, so play the radio in a distant place.
✽ Very Occasionally, DC output will be prevented by the
operation of the internal protection circuit. In this event,
unplug the AC-5VW AC power adapter from the power
socket for a few moments and then plug it in again. This
will restore DC output.

Notes on the xD-Picture Card™
■ Image Memory Card
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 initialized by a PC, be sure to initialize
(format/initialize) the card with your digital camera
before using it.
■ Protecting Your Data
h Data 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 We recommend saving your important data to
another media (i.e., MO disk, CD-R, hard disk, etc.).
■ Notes on Handling xD-Picture Card
h Keep xD-Picture Cards out of the reach of small
children. When storing xD-Picture Cards, ensure
that they are kept in a location out of the reach of
small children to prevent a card being accidentally
swallowed. An xD-Picture Card could cause
suffocation if accidentally swallowed. If a child
swallows an xD-Picture Card, seek medical advice
immediately.
h Make sure that the memory card is straight when
you insert into the camera etc.
h The memory card is a precision electronic
instrument. Do not apply pressure or shock, and
avoid bending.
h Do not use the memory card in a hot, humid, or
corrosive environment.
h If the contact area on the card is soiled (dust,
fingerprints, etc.), wipe it clean with a soft, dry cloth.
h Clean the memory card with a soft dry piece of cloth
when dirty.
h Always keep the card in the anti-static case provided
when you carry or store it. Use a storage case if
available.
h The memory card can be used reliably for a long
period of time, but will eventually lose its ability to
store and play back image data. At this point,
replace with a new memory card.
h Never remove the xD-Picture Card or switch the
camera off during data recording, during data
erasing (xD-Picture Card formatting) or during
frame advance when images are being played back.
These actions could result in damage to the xDPicture Card.
h The use of xD-Picture Cards is recommended with
the FinePix F700.
The camera quality cannot be guaranteed when
cards other than those manufactured by FUJIFILM
are used.
h The xD-Picture Card 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.
94
Warning Displays
h Do not affix labels to the xD-Picture Card.
This could result in the label peeling off and causing
a fault when the card is inserted or removed.
■ Notes on Using xD-Picture Card with a
PC
h If you intend to take photos using an xD-Picture
Card that has been used on a PC, format the xDPicture Card on your camera.
h When you format an xD-Picture Card 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 xD-Picture Card from your PC
as this will make it impossible to use the xD-Picture
Card in your camera.
h Always use the camera to erase image data on an
xD-Picture Card.
h To edit image data, copy the image data to the PC’s
hard disk and then edit the copied data.
h Do not copy files other than those that will be used
by the camera.

✽ These specifications are subject to change without notice. FUJIFILM shall not be held liable for
damages resulting from errors in this Owner’s Manual.
✽ 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.).
✽ Due to the nature of the lens, the edges of photographed images may appear distorted. This is
normal and does not indicate a fault.
AF/AE Lock:
On the FinePix F700, 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 Function:
If the camera is not used in any way for 30 seconds, this function switches features such as the LCD
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.
h 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 to be printed and how many prints are made of each image.
EV:
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.
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.
JPEG:
Joint Photographics 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.
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.
VGA/QVGA:
Graphics standards for PCs. Images are displayed at 640 × 480 and 320 × 240 pixels respectively.
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. A function that
automatically matches the white balance is called an Automatic White Balance function.
