The SmartMedia card supplied with your 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 deleted
from the card and new data recorded.
hSmartMedia 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.
hStoring Data
Data
In the situations listed below, recorded data may be deleted
(destroyed). Please note that Fuji Photo Film (U.K.) Ltd.,
accepts no responsibility whatever for the loss (destruction)
of recorded data.
h When the SmartMedia is used incorrectly by the owner or
a third party.
h When the SmartMedia is exposed to static electricity or
electrical noise.
h When the SmartMedia slot cover is opened or the
SmartMedia removed and the camera is then switched off
during data recording, during data deleting (SmartMedia
formatting).
Software
Z WARNING
h If any liquid at all leaks from the batteries, wipe the
battery compartment thoroughly and then load new
batteries.
h 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.
hSmartMedia
TV
use batteries of different types or brands together.
h When replacing the batteries, always fit 2 new batteries.
Here, ‘new batteries’ refers to either recently purchased
unused alkaline batteries.
h In cold locations (at temperatures of +10°C 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.
h If the battery terminals are soiled by fingerprints, etc., the
number of available shots declines markedly. Carefully
wipe the battery terminals with a soft dry cloth before
loading them into the camera.

hNotes 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 deleting (SmartMedia
formatting). These actions could result in damage to the
SmartMedia.
h Use only the SmartMedia specified for use with the
camera. The use of other SmartMedia could damage the
camera.
h The SmartMedia are precision electronic devices. Do not
bend, drop, or subject the SmartMedia to shocks.
h Do not use or store the SmartMedia in environment likely
to be affected by strong static electricity or electrical
noise.
h Do not use or store the SmartMedia in very hot, humid or
corrosive environment.
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.
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 Do not carry the 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 SmartMedia have a limited life and it will eventually
become impossible to store or delete data on a
SmartMedia that has been used for a long period. When
this occurs, purchase a new SmartMedia card.
h Affix the label onto the designed 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.
hNotes on Using SmartMedia with a PC
h If you intend to take photos using a SmartMedia that
has been used on a PC, format the SmartMedia by
connecting the camera to a TV using the video cable.
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.
h To edit image data, copy the image data to the PC’s
hard disk and then edit the copied data.
