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 Dark subjects
h Fast moving subjects
h Subjects with little or no contrast between the subject
and the background (such as white walls or subjects
dressed in the same color as the background)
h Shots where another high-contrast object (not the
subject) is close to the AF frame and is either closer or
further away than your subject (such as a shot of
someone against a background with strongly
contrasting elements)
For such subjects use AF/AE lock (➡P.26).

STILL 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 (Focus mode: AF (CENTER))✽1 or MF.
Use AF lock (Focus mode: AF (CENTER))✽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 )
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.
Open
The subject is not suited to AF.
The subject is outside the shooting range.
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 (Autoexposure), 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 or the subject
at or near the center of the image. The camera focuses when the Shutter button is pressed
down halfway.
MF: The focus is set manually. See P.62 for details.

This function uses the exposure level set by the AE
function as a reference (0) and then brightens (+) or

the reference exposure (0) and one overexposed (+).

Use this mode to make sure that the subject’s eyes appear
normal when taking pictures of 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
flash fires as required by the shooting conditions.
◆ Red-eye effect ◆
Pressing the flash down changes the camera to
Suppressed flash mode.
Use this mode for taking pictures using indoor
lighting, for shots taken through glass, and for
photography in venues such as theaters or at indoor
sporting events where the distance is too great for
the flash to be effective. When you use Suppressed
flash, the selected white balance (➡P.59) operates
so that natural colors are captured along with the
ambience of the available light.
When using the flash to taken a picture 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 minimize the likelihood of the effect.
Take the following measures to make Red-eye reduction more effective:
h Get the subjects to look at the camera. h Get as close as possible to the subjects.
! Shooting in Suppressed flash mode in dark conditions, use

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 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 Rechargeable Lithium-ion Battery 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.

■ 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 formated 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.).
■ Handling xD-Picture Card
h When storing xD-Picture Cards, make sure that they
are kept out of the reach of children. An xD-Picture
Card could be swallowed cause suffocation. If a child
swallows an xD-Picture Card, seek medical
attention or call emergency number right away.
h When inserting the xD-Picture Card into the camera,
hold the xD-Picture Card straight as you push it in.
h xD-Picture Card are precision electronic devices.
Do not bend, drop or otherwise subject the xDPicture Card to strong force or shocks.
h Do not use or store xD-Picture Card in hot humid
places or in places where they are exposed to
corrosive substances.
h Clean the xD-Picture Card with a soft dry piece of
cloth when dirty.
h When carrying or storing an xD-Picture Card, keep
it in the special protective case.
h The xD-Picture Card will work well for long time, but
will sooner or later lose its ability to store and play
back images or movies. If this happens replace it
with a new xD-Picture Card.
h Never remove the xD-Picture Card or turn the
camera off during data recording or erasing (xDPicture Card formatting) as this could be damaged
to the xD-Picture Card.
h The use of xD-Picture Cards is recommended with
the FinePix F710.
The recording quality cannot be guaranteed when
an xD-Picture Card other than those manufactured
by FUJIFILM are used.
h The xD-Picture Card may feel warm when it is
removed from the camera after taking pictures. This
is normal.
h Do not put labels on the xD-Picture Card. Peeling
labels can cause the camera not to work properly.
■ Using xD-Picture Card with a PC
h When you take pictures using an xD-Picture Card
that has been used on a PC, reformat the xDPicture Card using your camera for best quality.
h When you format an xD-Picture Card, a directory
(folder) is created. Image data is then recorded in
this directory.
h Do not change or delete the directory (folder) or file
names on the xD-Picture Card because 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
and edit the copy.
h Do not copy files other than those that will be used
by the camera.

h These specifications are subject to change without notice. FUJIFILM shall not be held liable for damages resulting
from errors in this Owner’s Manual.
h 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.
h The operation error may be caused in a digital camera by the strong radio interference (i. e. electric fields, static
electricity, line noise, etc.).
h Due to the nature of the lens, the edges of images may appear distorted. This is normal.
AF/AE Lock:
On the FinePix 710, 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 turns 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 turns 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.
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.
Exif Print Format is a newly revised digital camera file format that contains a variety of shooting information for
optimal printing.
