PREPARATION
Connecting to Power
There are two ways in which to provide the camera with power. You can use
batteries (AA Alkaline, Ni-MH), or you can use an AC Adapter (DC 6V/2.5A).
• Using the batteries
1. Pull the battery chamber cover lock in the
1
direction of the arrow( 1 ) and open the battery
2
chamber cover by pushing in the direction of the
arrow( 2 ).
2. Insert the batteries taking note of the polarity
(+/-).
3. To close the battery chamber cover, push it until it
clicks.
Reference
• This camera will automatically turn off when not in use for a period
of time.
• We recommend high-capacity ALKALINE batteries (2000mAh) because manganese batteries cannot deliver sufficient power.
Note
Important information about battery usage
• Please remove the batteries if the camera will not be used for long periods.
Batteries can lose power over time and are prone to leaking if kept
inside the camera.
• Low temperatures(below 0˚C) can affect the performance of the batteries and
you may experience reduced battery life.
• Batteries will normally recover at normal temperatures.
• Do not use old and new batteries at the same time.
• During extended use of the camera, the camera body may become
warm. This is perfectly normal. If you are planning to use this camera
for long periods of time, it is advisable to use an AC adapter.
21
READY
PREPARATION
Using the AC power adapter
• If you have access to a electrical supply, using an AC Adapter allows the camera
to be used for long periods of time. If you connect the camera to a computer,
it is advisable to use an AC adapter to enable extended use.
• Plug the adapter into the connection point (DC IN
6V) on the camera. Ensure that you use an AC
adapter with the correct specification for the cam
era (6v/2.0A). Failure to do so may affect your
warranty.
WARNING
Always turn off power before taking the AC adapter out of the electnical outlet.
As with all electrically powered devices, safety is important. Ensure that neither
the camera nor adapter comes into contact with water or metallic materials.
Attaching the strap
• To prevent accidental damage to the camera, always
use the strap.
• Refer to the illustrations left

Note
• Select MACRO SHOT mode when the subject is between 0.6ft and 2.5ft
(0.2m and 0.8m )from the camera.
• Refer to page 28 for information on MACRO SHOT.
• If you do not select the correct shot mode for the distance from the subject to
the camera, you won't get a clear shot of the
subject.
• Avoid obstructing the Flash control sensor when you take an image. An image
can be spoiled when a finger, hair or camera strap is in front of the Flash
control sensor.
• Using the LCD monitor extensively will drain the batteries. We recommend
using the optical viewfinder as often as possible in order to extend battery life.
• If you take an image in a dark place, a "LOW LUMINANCE" message will display on the LCD monitor. In addition, it may cause the camera to fix the focus
as listed below.
Normal Shot mode : 6.5ft, Macro shot mode: 1.6ft
In this case, increase the lighting value or take an image in a bright place.
Reference
• If there is no card, a [NO CARD] message will display
on the LCD monitor.

IMPORTANT NOTES
Caution!
* Your new Gateway camera is a precision instrument. While it is designed to
withstand general wear and tear, there are some important points that will
help you get maximum service and reliability from your camera.
The following should be avoided :
• Severe changes in temperature and humidity.
• Dust and dirt.
• Direct sunlight or the inside of a vehicle in hot weather.
• Environments where there is high magnetism or excessive vibration.
• Areas with high explosives or highly flammable materials.
• Pesticides, and other chemicals.
• Sand or other partiles can cause severe malfunctions.
Ensure that there is no contact with sand or similar particles.
• If the camera is transferred from a cold to a warm and humid environment,
condensation can form on the delicate electronic circuitry. If this occurs, turn
the camera off and wait for at least 1 hour until all moisture is evaporated.
Moisture build-up can also occur in the CF CARD. If this happens, turn off the
camera and remove the CF CARD until the moisture has evaporated.
73
ADVANCED
IMPORTANT NOTE
* If the camera is exposed to electronic interference, it will turn itself off to
protect the CF CARD.
* Maintenance
• Use a soft brush (available from photo stores) to GENTLY clean the lens and
LCD assemblies. If this does not work, lens-cleaning paper with lens cleaning
fluid can be used.
• Clean the camera body with a soft cloth. Do not allow this camera to come into
contact with solvent materials such as benzol, insecticide, thinners or similar
products.
• Rough handling can damage the LCD monitor. Take care to avoid damage and
keep the camera in its protective carry case at all times.
* DO NOT attempt to disassemble or modify the camera.
* Under certain conditions, static electricity can cause the flash unit to fire.
This is not harmful to the camera and is not a malfunction.
* When images are uploaded or downloaded, the data transfer may be affected
by static electricity. In this case, disconnect and re-connect the USB cable
before trying the transfer again.
