Attaching the lens hood
When attaching the lens hood, it is effective for
reducing ghost images and flare in backlit scenes.
Camera provides crisp, clear shots.
1 Align the indicators on the camera and lens
hood, and fit the lens hood to the lens.
! The lens hood cannot be attached when the optional wide●
angle conversion lens is used.
2Turn the lens hood clockwise until it clicks.
Compatible batteries
h AA-size alkaline batteries (4) or AA-size Ni-MH rechargeable batteries (4) (sold separately)
! Use the same brand and grade AA-size alkaline batteries as those supplied with the camera.
●
◆ How to use the batteries ◆
h Never use the following types of batteries, as they could cause serious
Outer casing
problems such as battery fluid leakage or overheating:
1. Batteries with split or peeling outer casings
2. Combinations of different types of batteries or new and used batteries
together
h Do not use manganese or Ni-Cd batteries.
h Soil, such as fingermarks on the poles of the batteries can shorten time for which the batteries
can be used.
h The time for which AA-size alkaline batteries (referred to hereafter simply as alkaline batteries)
can be used varies depending on the brand. Some brands of alkaline batteries may stop providing
power more quickly than those supplied with the camera. Note also that due to their nature, the
time for which alkaline batteries can be used decreases in cold conditions (0°C to +10°C/+32°F to
+50°F). The use of AA-size Ni-MH batteries is better for this reason.
h Use Fujifilm Battery charger (sold separately) to charge AA-size Ni-MH batteries.
h See P.137-138 for other notes on using batteries.
h When first purchased or if left unused for a long period, the amount of time which AA-size
Ni-MH batteries can be used may be short. See P.138 for more information.

to the nature of the battery, the battery level warning may appear early when the camera is used in cold
locations. This is normal. Try warming the batteries in your pocket or a similar location before use.
✽ Battery level warning
1) The camera’s estimation of the remaining battery charge varies greatly depending on the camera operation mode.
Consequently, even if “C” or “V” is not displayed in Playback mode, one of them may appear when you change
to Photography mode.
2) Depending on the battery type and the level of charge in the batteries, the camera may run out of power without first
displaying a battery level warning. This is particularly likely to happen when batteries that have run out of charge
once are re-used.
In situation 2), immediately load new or fully charged replacement batteries.

AE lock: Determines and fixes the exposure at a target level. Use the following procedure to take a
picture using AE lock:

exposure). ➡ Press the shutter button down
halfway (sets and fixes the focus). ➡ Press
the shutter button down fully (takes the

This function uses the exposure level set by
the AE function as a reference (0) and then 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 (+).
When shooting a moving subject, you can either “freeze the motion” or “capture the sense of
movement” by adjusting the shutter speed.

Open
C-AF: Use C-AF to photograph moving subjects. When this mode is set, the camera focuses
continuously on the subject in the center of the screen. See P.48 for details.
MF: The focus is adjusted by turning the focusing ring manually. See P.49 for details.
The graph at left shows the way the aperture and shutter speed settings can
be changed while maintaining the same exposure level.
(Ap erture)
The FinePix S9100 / FinePix S9600 uses an external AF sensor (external-light passive phase
difference AF) that features faster AF operation than previous models. The external AF sensor does not
function when Macro mode, Super macro mode, the digital zoom, AREA or C-AF focusing is used. It
may take longer to focus if the external AF sensor is soiled (➡P.145).
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
The mechanisms for focusing are S-AF (Single AF), C-AF (Continuous AF) and MF (Manual focus).
S-AF: Use S-AF for normal photography. In this mode, the camera focuses each time the shutter
button is pressed down halfway. Select the AF mode (➡P.68) when the Mode dial is set to
“N”, “M”, “<” or “>” mode.
EXPOSURE (SHUTTER SPEED AND APERTURE)
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)
By adjusting the aperture, you can change the depth of focus (depth of field).
The area in front of and
behind the subject is also
in focus in the shot.

Use this mode for ordinary photography. The flash fires as
required by the shooting conditions.

b Red-eye reduction
Use this mode to guarantee 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.
◆ Suppressed flash ◆
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 places 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 function (➡P.66)
operates so that natural colors are captured along
with the ambience of the available light.
! Use
●
a tripod to prevent camera shake when shooting in
Suppressed flash mode in the dark condition.
! See P.142 for information on the camera shake warning.
●
! If pressing the shutter button while the flash is charging, the picture will
●
be taken without the flash.
◆ Red-eye effect ◆
When using the flash to take a picture of 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 this 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.
Use this mode in backlit scenes, such as a subject against
a window or in the shade of a tree, or to get the correct
colors when taking a picture under bright lighting. In this
mode, the flash fires in bright as well as dark conditions.

◆ Notes on using Microdrives for movie shooting ◆
If the camera’s internal temperature rises too high, movie shooting stops to protect the media. Because
Microdrives tend to generate heat (for mechanical reasons), long periods of continuous movie shooting
may not be possible when the ambient temperature is high. As a general guide to shooting times, you
can shoot movies for around 20 minutes at an ambient temperature of +30°C/+86°F and for around 30
minutes at +25°C/+77°F.

h Extremely cold places
h Places with strong vibration
h Places with 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
h Next to rubber or vinyl products
TM
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 batteries with metal objects
such as necklaces or hairpins.
h Do not expose the batteries to water, and keep
batteries from getting wet or stored in moist
locations.
h Do not attempt to take apart or change the batteries,
including battery casings.
h Do not subject the batteries to strong impacts.
h Do not use batteries that are leaking, deformed,
discolored.
h Do not store batteries in warm or humid places.
h Keep the batteries out of reach of babies and small
children.
h Make sure that the battery polarity (≠ and – ) is
correct.
h Do not use new with used batteries. Do not use
charged and discharged batteries together.
h Do not use different types or brands of batteries at
the same time.
h If you do not intend to use the camera for a long
period of time, remove the batteries from the
camera. Note if the camera is left with the batteries
removed, the time and date settings are cleared.
h The batteries feel warm right after being used.
Before removing the batteries, turn the camera off
and wait for the batteries to cool down.
h Since batteries do not work well in cold weather or
locations, warm the batteries by placing them inside
your garments before use. Batteries do not work well
when cold. They will work again when the
temperature returns to normal.
h Soil (such as fingerprints) on the battery terminals
makes the batteries charge less reducing the
number of images. Carefully wipe the battery
terminals with a soft dry cloth before loading.
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.
137
Power Supply and Batteries
Using the AA-size Ni-MH batteries
correctly
h As a power source in digital cameras, AA-size NiMH batteries (referred to hereafter as Ni-MH
batteries) are superior to alkaline batteries in several
ways, such as allowing more shots to be taken with
the camera. However, care must be taken with the
way Ni-MH batteries are used if their original
performance is to be maintained.
h Ni-MH batteries left unused in storage for long
periods can become “deactivated”. Also, repeatedly
charging Ni-MH batteries that are only partially
discharged can cause them to suffer from the
“memory effect”.
Ni-MH batteries that are “deactivated” or affected by
“memory” suffer from the problem of only providing
power for a short time after being charged. To
prevent this problem, discharge and recharge them
several times using the camera’s “Discharging
rechargeable batteries” function. By repeating this
cycle several times, the temporary reduction in
performance caused by “memory” or “deactivation”
can be remedied and the batteries can be restored
to their original performance levels.
Deactivation and memory are specific to Ni-MH
batteries and are not in fact battery faults. See P.139
for the procedure for “Discharging rechargeable
batteries”.
AC Power Adapter
Always use the AC Power Adapter AC-5VX with the
camera.
The use of an AC Power adapter other than AC-5VX
can be damaged to your digital camera.
h Use the AC power adapter for indoor use only.
h Plug the connection cord plug securely into the DC
input terminal of the FUJIFILM Digital camera.
h Turn off the FUJIFILM Digital camera before
disconnecting the cord from the FUJIFILM Digital
camera’s DC input terminal. To disconnect, pull out
the plug gently. Do not pull on the cord.
h Do not use the AC power adapter with any device
other than your camera.
h During use, the AC power adapter will become hot
to the touch. This is normal.
h Do not take apart the AC power adapter. Doing so
could be dangerous.
h Do not use the AC power adapter in a hot and
humid place.
h Do not subject the AC power adapter to strong
shocks.
h The AC power adapter may emit a humming. This is
normal.
h If used near a radio, the AC power adapter may
cause static. If this happens, move the camera away
from the radio.
Discharging rechargeable batteries
The “Discharging rechargeable batteries” function can only be used with Ni-MH
batteries.
The “Discharging rechargeable batteries” function should not be used with
alkaline batteries as it will completely drain the battery charge.
Use the “Discharging rechargeable batteries” function in the following situations:
i When the batteries only last for a short time after being charged normally
i When the batteries have not been used for a long period
i When you purchase new Ni-MH batteries

charger (sold separately). Refer to the instructions
supplied with the charger to make sure that the
charger is used correctly.
h Do not use the battery charger to charge other
batteries.
h Note that the batteries feel warm after being
charged.
h Due to the way the camera is constructed, a small
amount of current is used even when the camera is
turned off. Note in particular that leaving Ni-MH
batteries in the camera for a long period will
overdischarge the batteries and may render them
unusable even after recharging.
h Ni-MH batteries will self-discharge even when not
used, and the time for which they can be used may
be shortened as a result.
h Ni-MH batteries will deteriorate rapidly if
overdischarged (e.g. by discharging the batteries in
a flashlight). Use the “Discharging rechargeable
batteries” function provided in the camera to
discharge the batteries.
h Ni-MH batteries have a limited service life. If a
battery can only be used for a short time even after
repeated discharge-charge cycles, it may have
reached the end of its service life.

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 formatted by a PC, be sure to format the card
with your digital camera before using it.
Microdrives are compact, lightweight hard disk drives that
conform to the CF+ Type II standard. Due to their ample
capacity for large image data files and their low permegabyte recording cost, Microdrives provide a more
economical way to save high-resolution image files.
■ 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 Media (all types)

h When inserting the media into the camera, hold the
media straight as you push it in.
h Never remove the media or turn the camera off during
data recording or erasing (media formatting) as this could
be damaged to the media.
h Do not bend, drop or otherwise subject the media to
strong force or shocks.
h Do not use or store these media in places with affected
by strong static electricity or electrical noise.
h Do not use or store media in hot humid places or in
places where they are exposed to corrosive substances.

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 Do not expose an xD-Picture Card to shock. Do not
apply pressure, and avoid bending.
h Do not use the xD-Picture Card in a hot or humid place.
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 The use of xD-Picture Cards is recommended with the
FinePix S9100 / FinePix S9600.
The recording quality cannot be guaranteed when xDPicture 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 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.
There are two types of xD-Picture Card:
standard type and Type M (containing “M” in the model
number, such as DPC-M1GB).
FinePix S9100/ FinePix S9600 is compatible with Type
M, however they may no be compatible depending on
the device used (Image Memory Card Reader, etc.).
■ Using Microdrive
h Do not use hard-pointed pens to write on the Microdrive
label.
h Do not peel off the Microdrive label.
h Do not stick additional labels onto a Microdrive.
h When carrying or storing a Microdrive, keep it in the
protective case provided.
h When a Microdrive is used, vibration or impacts during
image data recording may prevent the image data from
being recorded correctly. Put the camera down carefully
when placing it on a desk or table, etc.
h Do not use Microdrive in CF+ Type II slots that do not
have an eject function.
h Take care when handling Microdrive that have been used
for long periods as they may become hot.
h Do not place Microdrives close to strong magnetic fields.
h Keep Microdrive dry.
h Do not apply strong pressure to the Microdrive cover.
■ Using Compact Flash
Contact the CompactFlash card manufacturer for
information on the CompactFlash functions, operation
details and system requirements.
Card types approved for use with the FinePix S9100 /
FinePix S9600 are listed on the FUJIFILM website.
http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital/
h The CompactFlash card may be hot immediately after
being used in the camera and should be handled with
care.
h Do not touch the card contact area with your fingers or
metal objects.
h Unused CompactFlash cards should be formatted before
being used.
■ Using media with a PC
h When taking pictures using a media that has been used
on a PC, reformat the media using your camera for best
quality.
h When formatting a media, 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 media because this will make it impossible
to use the media in your camera.
h Always use the camera to erase image data on a media.
h To edit image data, copy the image data to the PC and
edit the copy.

According to the CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) standard procedure
for measuring digital still camera battery consumption (extract):
When using alkaline batteries, use the batteries supplied with the camera. You can use
Ni-MH batteries also. The storage media should be xD-Picture Card or Microdrive.
Pictures should be taken at a temperature of +23°C (+73°F), with the LCD monitor
turned on, AF-assist illuminator off, the optical zoom moved from full wide-angle to full
telephoto (or vice-versa) and back again to its original position every 30 seconds, the
flash used at full power every second shot and the camera turned off and then on again
once every 10 shots.
h Note: Because the number of available shots varies depending on the capacity of
alkaline batteries or the level of charge in Ni-MH batteries, the figures shown

Specifications
Explanation of Terms
■ Standard number of available frames/recording time per media
Deactivated batteries
Leaving an Ni-MH battery unused in storage for a long period may cause a rise in the level of substances that
inhibit current flow inside the battery and result in a dormant battery. A battery in this state is referred to as
deactivated.
Because current flow is inhibited in a deactivated Ni-MH battery, the battery’s original level of performance cannot
be achieved.
The number of available frames, recording time or file size varies slightly depending on the subjects photographed. Note also
that the divergence between standard number of frames and the actual number of frames is greater for medias with higher
capacities. When used media is 4GB or more, a movie up to 60 minutes long (at the “%” setting) or 120 minutes long (at
the “$” setting) can be recorded.

✽ Number of recorded pixel is 4864 × 3648 when displaying images on PC by using FinePixViewer.
If you shoot using the xD-Picture Cards with model numbers containing “M” such as DPC-M1GB, movie recording time
may be reduced if you repeatedly record and erase (frame erase) image files. In such a case, erase all frames or format
the xD-Picture Card before use. Back up important frames (files) onto your PC or another media.
✽ 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 images may appear distorted. This is normal.
EV
A number 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 (NTSC).
JPEG
Joint Photographic 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.
Memory effect
If an Ni-MH battery is repeatedly charged without first being fully discharged, its performance may drop below its
original level. This is referred to as the “memory effect”.
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.
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.
