■ Standard number of frames per xD-Picture Card
The table below shows the standard number of frames for a new xD-Picture Card formatted on the camera. The larger the
xD-Picture Card capacity, the bigger the difference between the actual number of frames and the number shown here. Also,
the size of an image file varies depending on the subject. So the number of remaining shots may decrease by 2 or may
remain the same. For this reason, the number displayed may not show the actual number of frames.

Notes on the Power Supply
Notes on the Battery (NP-40)
This camera uses the Rechargeable Lithium-ion
Battery NP-40. Note the points below when using the
rechargeable battery. Take particular care to read the
Safety Notes to make sure that you use the battery
correctly.
✽ When shipped, the NP-40
is not fully charged. Always
charge the NP-40 before
Battery
using it.
(NP-40)
Soft case
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, place it inside the special
soft case provided.
■ Battery Features
98
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, turn the camera
off as quickly as possible when it is not being used.
h The number of available frames 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
h You can charge the battery using the camera, cradle
and the AC power adapter (included).
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 approx. 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 BC65 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
approx. 95 minutes to charge a fully depleted NP40 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 out before storing it.
h If you do not intend to use the camera for a long
period of time, remove the battery from the camera.
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.
■ Handling the Battery
To avoid injury or damage, observe the
following:
h Do not carry or store battery with metal objects such
as necklaces or hairpins.
h Do not heat the battery or throw it into a fire.
h Do not attempt to take apart or change the battery.
h Do not recharge the battery with chargers other
those specified.
h Dispose of used battery promptly.
To avoid damaging the battery or shortening
its life, observe the following:
h Do not drop the battery or otherwise subject it to
strong impacts.
h Do not expose the battery to water.
To make sure that you obtain optimum battery
performance, observe the following:
h Always keep the battery terminals clean.
h Do not store battery in warm or humid places.
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. Use the AC power adapter supplied with
the camera if you are taking pictures or viewing
images for a long period of time.

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 re-recording 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.
■ 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.

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 Z1.
The recording quality cannot be guaranteed when
xD-Picture Cards other than those manufactured by
FUJIFILM are used.
h The xD-Picture Card may feel warm when it is

According to the CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) standard procedure
for measuring digital still camera battery consumption (extract):
When using a battery, use the battery supplied with the camera. The storage media
should be xD-Picture Card.
Pictures should be taken at a temperature of +23°C (+73°F), with the LCD monitor
turned on, 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.
i Note: As the number of available shots varies depending on the level of charge in battery,
the figures shown here for the number of available shots using battery is not
guaranteed. The number of available shots will also decline at low temperatures.
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.
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:

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.

■ Standard number of available frames/recording time per xD-Picture Card
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
xD-Picture Cards with higher capacities.

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.

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.
