Do not insert flammable materials into the camera or store
these materials near the camera.
Avoid covering the camera or charger with blankets or
clothes.

charger, and then contact a Samsung service center.
This may result in electric shock.
Prevent damage to subjects’ eyesight.
Do not use the flash in close proximity (closer than 1 m/3 ft) to
people or animals. If you use the flash too close to your subject’s
eyes, this can cause temporary or permanent eyesight damage.

Basic troubleshooting
You can get answers to common questions. Solve problems easily by setting shooting options.
The subject's eyes
appear red.
This is caused by a reflection from the camera flash.
• Set the flash option to
Red-eye or
Red-eye Fix. (p. 40)
Red-eye Fix in the edit menu. (p. 62)
• If the photo has already been taken, select
Photos have dust
spots.
Dust particles floating in the air may be captured in photos when using the flash.
• Turn off the flash or avoid taking photos in a dusty place.
• Set ISO speed options. (p. 40)
Photos are blurred.
This may be caused by taking photos in low light conditions or holding the camera incorrectly.
• Press [Shutter] halfway down to make sure the subject is focused. (p. 25)
• Use the
mode. (p. 31)
Photos are blurred
when shooting at
night.
As the camera tries to let in more light, the shutter speed slows.
This can make it difficult to steady the camera and may result in camera shake.
• Select
Night in the
mode. (p. 30)
• Turn on the flash. (p. 39)
• Set ISO speed options. (p. 40)
• Use a tripod to prevent your camera from shaking.
Subjects come out
too dark because of
backlighting.
When the light source is behind the subject or when there is a high contrast between
the light and dark areas, the subject may come out shaded.
• Avoid shooting with the sun behind your subject.
• Select
Backlight in the
mode. (p. 30)
• Set the flash option to Fill in. (p. 40)
• Set the Auto Contrast Balance (ACB) option. (p. 46)
• Adjust the exposure. (p. 46)
Spot if a bright subject is in the center of the frame. (p. 47)
