Tips
The digital still camera saves recorded images as digital data. The format of the
saved data is called as the file format. The formats that can be used with this
camera are as follows:
JPEG format
Most digital still cameras, operating systems of computers, and browser
software adopt this format. This format is able to compress files without
appreciable deterioration. However, if the image is compressed and saved on
repeated occasions, the image will deteriorate. This camera records still images
using the JPEG format for normal recording.
GIF format
Using this format, the image will not deteriorate even if the image is compressed
and saved on repeated occasions. This format limits the number of colors used
to 256 colors. This camera records still images using the GIF format in Clip
Motion (page 59) or TEXT mode (page 62).
TIFF format
Stores shooting images without compression, so the image does not deteriorate.
Most of operating systems and applications correspond to this format. This
camera records still images using the TIFF format for the TIFF mode (page 63).
MPEG format
This format is very typical for moving images. This camera records moving
images in the MPEG format during the recording.

Notes
• If you try to record 55 images or more on a floppy disk, even if the remaining disk capacity is
sufficient, “DISK FULL” appears on the LCD screen and you cannot record any more images.
• If you try to record 3001 images or more on a “Memory Stick,” even if the remaining memory
capacity of the “Memory Stick” is sufficient, “NO MEMORY SPACE” appears on the LCD
screen and you cannot record any more images.
• When the TEXT mode is selected, the number of images that can be recorded will be the same

Tips
The size of the image is indicated by the
pixel unit. The higher the number of
pixels, the more information is included.
So, an image that is saved using a large
number of pixels is suitable for a largeformat print and one that is saved using a
smaller number of pixels is suitable for
attaching to an E-mail. Normally, an
image is recorded in the ratio of four to
three to fit the monitor ratio. This camera
can also record the image in the ratio of
three to two to accommodate the most
common printing paper size. This is the
same ratio as the one used in photodeveloping shops.
Creating Clip Motion
Files
Clip Motion is an animation function
that plays back still images in
succession. Clip Motion images are
played back on this camera at
approximately 0.5 s intervals. The
images are stored in GIF format, which
is convenient for creating home pages
or attaching images to an e-mail.

Notes
• Reading and writing data takes more time
than normal image recording.
• Due to the limitations of the GIF format,
the number of colors for Clip Motion
images is reduced to 256 colors or less.
Therefore, the picture quality may
deteriorate for some images.
• The file size is reduced in MOBILE mode,
so the picture quality deteriorates.

Tips
Under normal recording conditions, the
camera automatically makes various
adjustments, such as those for the focus,
iris, exposure, and white balance, as it
shoots. However, you may not be able to
carry out your desired shooting
depending on shooting conditions. The
PROGRAM AE function provides you
with near-optimum adjustments to suit
your shooting situation.

image is too dark or bright as shown
below, we recommend that you adjust the
exposure manually. When recording a
backlighted subject or a subject in the
snow, set the exposure toward +, and
when recording a subject with extremely
bright illumination such as a spotlight, set
it toward –.

Adjusting the white
balance (WHITE
BALANCE)
When the white balance mode is set to
AUTO, your camera automatically sets
white balance in accordance with the
recording conditions and adjusts the
balance of all colors in an image. If
you want to fix the recording
conditions or record an image in
specific lighting conditions, you can
set the desired white balance mode.

To reactivate auto adjustment
Select [AUTO] in step 3.
Tips
The image is affected by the lighting
conditions. The image looks blue under
sunlight in the summer, and looks red
under mercury lamps. Human eyes can
resolve these problems. However, the
camera cannot resolve the problem
without making adjustments. Normally,
the camera adjusts automatically, but if
the image appears in strange colors, we
recommend that you change the white
balance mode.

Precautions
On cleaning
Cleaning the LCD screen
Wipe the screen surface with a
cleaning cloth (optional) or an LCD
cleaning kit (optional) to remove
fingerprints, dust, etc.
Cleaning the camera surface
Clean the camera surface with a soft
cloth slightly moistened with water,
then wipe the surface dry. Do not use
any type of solvent such as thinner,
alcohol or benzene as this may damage
the finish or the casing.
After using your camera at the
seashore or other dusty locations
On floppy disks
To protect data recorded on floppy
disks, note the following:
• Avoid storing floppy disks near
magnets or magnetic fields such as
those of speakers and televisions.
Otherwise, permanent erasure of disk
data may result.
• Avoid storing floppy disks in areas
subject to direct sunlight or sources
of high temperature, such as a
heating device. Floppy disk warping
or damage may result, rendering the
disk useless.
• Avoid contact with the disk’s surface
by opening the disk shutter plate. If
the disk’s surface becomes
blemished, data may be rendered
unreadable.
On operating temperature
Your camera is designed for use
between the temperatures of 0°C to
40°C (32°F to 104°F). Recording in
extremely cold or hot places that
exceed this range is not recommended.
On moisture condensation
If the camera is brought directly from a
cold to a warm location, or is placed in
a very damp room, moisture may
condense inside or outside the camera.
Should this occur, the camera will not
operate properly.
Moisture condensation occurs
easily when:
• The camera is brought from a cold
location such as a ski slope into a
warmly heated room.
• The camera is taken from an airconditioned room or car interior to
the hot outdoors, etc.
How to prevent moisture
condensation
When bringing the camera from a cold
place to a warm place, seal the camera
in a plastic bag and allow it to adapt to
conditions at the new location over a
period of time (about an hour).

About “InfoLITHIUM”
battery pack
What is the “InfoLITHIUM” battery
pack?
The “InfoLITHIUM” battery pack is a
lithium-ion battery pack that has
functions for communicating
information related to operating
conditions between your camera and
the AC adaptor/charger (optional).
The “InfoLITHIUM” battery pack
calculates power consumption
according to the operating conditions
of your camera and displays the
remaining battery time in minutes. If
you use the AC adaptor/charger
(optional), it will calculate and display
the operation time and charging
completion time also.
Charging the battery pack
• Be sure to charge the battery pack
before you start using your camera.
• We recommend charging the battery
pack in an ambient temperature of
between 10°C to 30°C (50°F to 86°F)
until the POWER ON/OFF (CHG)
lamp goes out, indicating that the
battery pack is fully charged. If you
charge the battery pack outside of
this temperature range, you may not
be able to efficiently charge the
battery pack.
• After charging is completed, either
disconnect the AC power adaptor
from the DC IN jack on your camera
or remove the battery pack.

Effective use of the battery pack
Remaining battery time indicator
• If the power goes off although the
battery remaining indicator indicates
that the battery pack has enough
power to operate, charge the battery
pack fully again so that the indication
on the battery remaining indicator is
correct. Note, however, that the
correct battery indication sometimes
will not be restored if it is used in
high temperatures for a long time or
left in a fully charged state, or the
battery pack is frequently used.
Regard the remaining battery time
indication as the approximate
shooting time.
• The E mark indicating there is little
remaining battery time sometimes
flashes depending on the operating
conditions or ambient temperature
and environment even if the
remaining battery time is 5 to 10
minutes.
How to store the battery pack
• If the battery pack is not used for a
long time, do the following
procedure once per year to maintain
proper function.
1. Fully charge the battery.
2. Discharge on your camera.
3. Remove the battery from your
camera and store it in a dry, cool
place.
• To use the battery pack up on your
camera, leave the POWER switch to
on in PLAY mode until the power
goes off without a floppy disk or a
“Memory Stick” inserted.
Battery life
• The battery life is limited. Battery
capacity decreases little by little as
you use it more and more, and as
time passes. When the battery
operating time is shortened
considerably, a probable cause is that
the battery pack has reached the end
of its life. Please buy a new battery
pack.
• The battery life varies according to
how it is stored and operating
conditions and environment for each
battery pack.
87
model name1[MVC-FD100/200]
[3-073-074-11(1)]
Additional information
• Battery performance decreases in
low-temperature surroundings. So,
the time that the battery pack can be
used is shorter in cold places. We
recommend the following to use the
battery pack longer:
— Put the battery pack in a pocket
close to your body to warm it up,
and insert it in your camera
immediately before you start
taking shots.
— Use the large capacity battery
pack (NP-F550, optional).
• Frequently using the LCD panel or
frequently operating the zoom wears
out the battery pack faster. We
recommend using the large capacity
battery pack (NP-F550, optional).
• Be certain to turn the POWER switch
to off when not taking shots or
playing back on your camera.
• Procure spare batteries that can last
two or three times longer than the
expected recording time. Also, make
a trial recording before you record
the actual images.
• Do not expose the battery pack to
water. The battery pack is not waterresistant.
