LOADING THE BATTERY AND xD-Picture Card
Compatible batteries
Use four AA-size alkaline batteries or four AAsize nickel-metal hydride (Ni-MH) batteries.
xD-Picture Card (sold separately)
DPC-16 (16MB)
DPC-64 (64MB)
DPC-32 (32MB)
DPC-128 (128MB)
◆ Notes on Handling Batteries ◆
14
h It is recommended that you use same brand of
alkaline batteries as those supplied with the camera.
h Never use a battery when the Outer casing
outer casing is split or peeling as
this could result in a short-circuit
and cause major problems due
to battery fluid leakage or
overheating.
h Do not use different types of batteries or old and new
batteries together.
h You cannot use lithium, manganese or nickelcadmium (Ni-Cd) batteries.
h The operating lives of alkaline batteries vary between
brands and the life of batteries you purchase may be
shorter than the alkaline batteries provided with the
camera. Note also that due to the nature of alkaline
batteries, the time for which they can be used is
shorter in cold locations (at temperatures of +10°C
(+50°F) or below). Consequently, Ni-MH batteries are
recommended.
h Soiling (fingerprints, etc) on the terminals of batteries
can greatly reduce the time for which the batteries
provide power.
h You will need the optional charger (➡P.114) to recharge
Ni-MH batteries.
h See P.117, 118 for notes on using batteries.

subject clearly on the LCD monitor (Such as in
sunny weather outdoors). In such situations, use the
viewfinder (EVF) to take the shot.
! If the subject is not in the AF frame, use AE/AF lock
●
to take the picture (➡P.29).
When you press the shutter button down halfway, the
camera emits a short double-beep and focuses on your
subject (the indicator lamp (green) changes from
blinking to steady). At that point, the AF frame on the
screen becomes smaller and the camera sets the
shutter speed and aperture.
! If the camera does not emit a short double-beep and “V”
●
appears on the screen, the camera cannot focus.
! When you press the shutter button down halfway, the image
●
on the screen freezes temporarily. However, this image is not
the recorded image.
! If “V” is displayed on the screen (e.g. the shot is too dark
●
for the camera to focus), try standing about 2 m (6.6 ft.) from
your subject to take the picture.

◆ Subjects not suitable for autofocus ◆
Though the FinePix 3800 uses an accurate autofocus mechanism, it may have difficulty focusing or not be able
to focus at all for the types of subject and situation listed below. In such cases, the image may be out of 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 walls or subjects
dressed in the same color as the background).
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.29).

I FLASH
n Red-Eye Reduction
c Auto Flash Mode
Use this mode for ordinary photography. The
flash fires automatically as required by the
shooting conditions.
Use this mode to ensure that the subject’s eyes
appear natural when photographing 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.
◆ Red-Eye Effect ◆
When you use the flash to photograph 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 effectively minimize the likelihood of the red-eye effect.
Take the following measures also to make Red-Eye Reduction more effective:
34
h Get the subjects to look at the camera.
h Get as close as possible to the subjects.
2
z Forced Flash
Use this flash mode to photograph backlit
scenes, such as a subject against a window or
in the shade of a tree, or to obtain the correct
colors when you are shooting under lighting
such as fluorescent tubes. In this mode, the
flash fires in bright as well as dark conditions.
v Slow Synchro
This is a flash mode that uses a slow shutter
speed. This allows you to take pictures of people
at night that clearly show both your subjects and
the night-time backdrop.
? Red-Eye Reduction + Slow Synchro
Use this mode for slow synchro shots with redeye reduction.
! The image may be overexposed when you shoot
●
bright scenes.
! Because a slow shutter speed is used, a tripod
●
should be used to prevent camera shake.
To take a picture of a main subject at night with the
background brightly lit, please use the “E” mode

i HOW TO SPECIFY PRINT OPTIONS (DPOF)
DPOF stands for Digital Print Order Format and refers to a format that is used for
recording printing specifications for images shot using a digital camera on media such as
xD-Picture Card. The recorded specifications include information on which frames are to
be printed.
This section gives a detailed description of how to order your prints with the FinePix 3800.
On the FinePix 3800, you can specify only one print per image in the DPOF settings.
✽ Note that some printers do not support date and time imprinting or specification of the
number of prints.
✽ Note that the warnings shown below may be displayed while you are specifying the
prints.

If you load an xD-Picture Card that contains frames specified for printing on another
camera, those print specifications are all reset and replaced by the new print
specifications.

Notes on Using Your Camera Correctly
eBe sure to read this information in conjunction with “Safety Notes” (➡P.131), to ensure that you use
your camera correctly.
■ 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 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 3800 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
116
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
Card. In this event, remove the xD-Picture Card and wait a
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 batteries and the xD-Picture 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
Applicable Batteries
h AA-size alkaline, Ni-MH (nickel-metal hydride) can be
used with this camera.
Do not use AA-size manganese, lithium batteries in your
FinePix 3800 because the heat generated by the
batteries could damage the camera or cause
malfunctions.
h The operating lives of alkaline batteries vary between
brands and the life of batteries you purchase may be
shorter than the alkaline batteries provided with the
camera.
Notes on the Batteries
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 the batteries with metal objects
such as necklaces or hairpins that could come into
contact with the metal positive > and negative < poles
of the battery.
h Do not expose the batteries to fresh or sea water, and
take particular care to keep the terminals dry.
h Do not attempt to deform, disassemble or modify the
batteries.
h Do not attempt to peel off or cut the battery casing.
h Do not drop, strike or otherwise subject the batteries to
strong impacts.
h Do not use the batteries that are leaking, deformed,
discolored or exhibit any other obvious abnormality.
h Do not store the batteries in very warm or moist locations.
h Keep the batteries out of reach of infant and young
children.
h When loading the batteries into the camera, ensure that the
battery polarity (> and < ) is as indicated on the camera.
h Do not use new batteries together with used batteries. In
the case of rechargeable batteries, do not use charged
and discharged batteries together. Do not use batteries
of different types or brands together.
h If you do not intend to use the camera for a long period of
time, remove the batteries from the camera. (Note that if
the camera is left with the batteries removed, the time
and date settings are cleared.)
h The batteries may feel warm immediately after being
used. Before removing the batteries, switch the camera
off and wait until the batteries cool down.
h When replacing the batteries, always fit 4 new batteries.
Here, “new batteries” refers to either recently purchased
unused alkaline batteries, or Ni-MH (nickel-metal hydride)
batteries that have recently been fully recharged together.
h In cold locations (at temperatures of +10°C/+50°F or below),
battery performance deteriorates and the time for which they
can be used shortens markedly. This is particularly true of
alkaline batteries. In cold conditions, put the batteries in your
pocket or a similar place to warm them before loading them
into the camera. If you use a body warmer to warm the
batteries, ensure that they are not in direct contact with the
warmer.
117
Notes on the Power Supply
h Soil (such as fingerprints) on the battery terminals can
markedly reduce the number of available shots. Carefully
wipe the battery terminals clean with a soft dry cloth before
loading the batteries.
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.
■ Notes on Small Rechargeable Batteries (Ni-MH
batteries)
118
h Always use the special battery charger to charge AA-size
Ni-MH batteries. Charge the batteries as described in the
instructions provided with the battery charger.
h Do not use the battery charger to charge batteries other
than those specified for use with the charger.
h Note that the batteries may feel warm immediately after
being charged.
h Ni-MH batteries are not charged at shipment. Be sure to
charge the batteries before using them.
h The camera mechanism is such that it draws a minute
amount of current even when the camera is switched off.
Take particular care not to leave Ni-MH batteries in the
camera for a long period of time as they can become
excessively discharged and may no longer be usable
even when charged.
h Ni-MH batteries self-discharge even when not used.
Always charge Ni-MH batteries before using them. If the
time for which a battery provides power shortens
markedly when it has been correctly charged, this
indicates that the battery has reached the end of its
effective life and should be replaced.
h Soiling (fingerprints, etc.) on the terminals of Ni-MH
batteries can greatly reduce the number of available
shots. When this occurs, clean the terminals carefully
with a soft dry cloth. Then use up the remaining charge in
the batteries and recharge them.
h Newly purchased batteries or batteries that have been
left unused for an extended period may not be fully
charged. (This is indicated by the immediate display of
the battery low warning or a low number of available
shots.) This is a normal characteristic of the batteries and
does not indicate a fault. Repeatedly charging and using
the batteries 3 or 4 times will restore them to a normal
condition.
h If you repeatedly charge a Ni-MH battery before it is fully
discharged, it will suffer from the “memory effect”*,
causing the battery low warning to appear while there is
still ample charge remaining in the battery. To restore the
batteries to their normal condition, use up all the charge
in the batteries before recharging them.
✽ Memory effect: A phenomenon affecting the battery
characteristics such that the apparent
battery capacity decreases.
h This device may emit a humming noise, but this is
normal.
h If used near a radio, this device may cause static, so play
the radio in a distant place.
Notes on Using the AC Power Adapter
Always use the AC-5VH/AC-5VHS AC Power Adapter with
the FinePix 3800 Camera.
The use of an AC power adapter other than the AC-5VH/
AC-5VHS could result in damage to your FinePix 3800
Digital Camera.
h This AC power adapter is designed exclusively for indoor
use.
h Plug the connection cord plug securely into the DC input
terminal of the FUJIFILM Digital camera.
h Turn off the power switch of the FUJIFILM Digital camera
before disconnecting the connection cord from the
FUJIFILM Digital camera’s DC input terminal. To
disconnect, take hold of the plug and pull it out (do not
disconnect it by pulling on the cord).
h Do not use this AC power adapter with any device except
the specified device.
h During use, this AC power adapter will become hot to
touch, but this is normal.
h Do not disassemble the AC power adapter. Doing so
could be dangerous.
h Do not use this device in a place with high temperature
and high humidity.
h Do not drop or subject this device to strong shocks.
119
Notes on the xD-Picture Card
■ Image Memory Card
■ Notes on Handling xD-Picture 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.
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 xDPicture 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 When you carry or store it, always keep the card in
the anti-static case provided. 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
■ 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.).
120
when images are being played back. These actions
could result in damage to the xD-Picture Card.
h The use of xD-Picture Cards is recommended with
the FinePix 3800.
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.
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 xD-Picture
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.

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 printed and how many prints are made of
each image.
EV:
A number that denotes exposure. 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:
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.
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).
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.
