About the Camera
Warning
• Do not attempt to take the camera apart or remodel the camera. High
voltages are present within the camera, and there is therefore a danger of
electric shocks if the camera is taken apart.
• If the inside of the camera should become exposed as a result of, for
example, the camera being dropped, please do not under any
circumstances touch such exposed portions, as there is a danger of
receiving an electric shock.
• To avoid the risk of it being swallowed by mistake, keep the SD Memory
Card out of the reach of small children. Seek medical attention immediately
if a card is accidentally swallowed.
• Wrapping the strap of the camera around your neck is also dangerous.
Please take care that small children do not hang the strap around their
necks.
• Use an AC adapter that is of the power and voltage specified for exclusive
use with this product. The use of an AC adapter other than that specified
exclusively for use with this product may cause fire or electric shocks.
• If the camera emits smoke or a strange smell, or in the event of any other
irregularity, stop using the camera immediately, remove the batteries or
unplug the AC adapter, and contact your nearest PENTAX Service Center.
Continued use of the camera may result in fire or electric shock.
• During thunderstorms, unplug and discontinue use of the AC adapter.
Continued use could cause equipment failure, a fire, or electric shock.
1
Caution
• Never try to disassemble or short the batteries. Also, do not dispose of the
batteries in a fire, as they may explode.
• Do not charge any batteries other than rechargeable Ni-MH batteries. The
batteries could explode or catch fire. Batteries for use with this camera
other than Ni-MH batteries cannot be charged.
• Do not place your finger on the flash when it is discharging as there is a
risk of burns.
• Do not discharge the flash while it is touching your clothing as there is a
risk of discoloring of the clothing.
• If any of the battery leakage should come in contact with your eyes, do not
rub them. Flush your eyes with clean water and get medical attention
immediately.
• If any of the battery leakage should come in contact with skin or clothes,
wash the affected areas thoroughly with water.
• Remove the batteries from the camera immediately if they become hot or
emit smoke. Be careful not to burn yourself during removal.
• Some portions of the camera heat up during use, so please take care, as
there is a risk of low temperature burns if such portions are held for long
periods of time.
• Should the LCD be damaged, be careful of glass fragments. Also, be
careful not to allow the liquid crystal to get on your skin or in your eyes or
in your mouth.
Handling Precautions for Batteries
• This camera uses two AA alkaline, AA lithium, AA Ni-MH or AA nickel
manganese batteries. Do not use batteries other than those specified here.
Using some other type of battery may cause the camera to function poorly,
or the batteries may rupture or cause a fire.
• AA alkaline, AA lithium and AA nickel manganese batteries cannot be
recharged. Do not try to take the batteries apart. The batteries may rupture
or leak if you try to charge them or take them apart.
• Do not remove the external seal of the battery. If the seal is removed, the
battery may short and may cause a fire, rupture, leak or heat.
• When replacing the batteries, do not combine different brands, types or
capacities. Also, do not combine old batteries with new ones. Doing so may
cause the batteries to rupture or cause a fire.
• Do not insert the batteries with the positive (+) and negative (–) poles in the
wrong orientation. Doing so may cause the batteries to rupture or cause a fire.
2
About the AC Adapter
Caution
• Do not place heavy objects on the AC plug cord, allow heavy objects to
drop onto it or allow the AC plug cord to become damaged due to
excessive bending. If the AC plug cord becomes damaged, consult a
PENTAX Service Center.
• Do not short or touch the output terminals of the product while it is still
plugged in.
• Do not plug in the AC plug cord with wet hands. This can cause an
electrical shock.
• Do not subject the product to strong impacts or allow it to drop onto a hard
surface. This can cause a malfunction.
• To reduce the risk of hazards, use only CSA/UL Certified power supply
cord set, cord is Type SPT-2 or heavier, minimum NO.18 AWG copper,
one end with a molded-on male attachment plug cap (with a specified
NEMA configuration), and the other is provided with a molded-on female
connector body (with a specified IEC nonindustrial type configuration) or
the equivalent.
Care to be Taken During Handling
• Take the Worldwide Service Network listing that is included in the package
with you when traveling. This will be useful if you experience problems
abroad.
• When the camera has not been used for a long time, confirm that it is still
working properly, particularly prior to taking important pictures (such as at
a wedding or during traveling). Contents of the recording cannot be
guaranteed if recording, playback or transferring your data to a computer,
etc. is not possible due to a malfunction of your camera or recording media
(SD Memory Card), etc.
• The lens on this camera is not interchangeable. The lens is not removable.
• Do not clean the product with organic solvents such as thinner, alcohol or
benzene.
• Places of high temperature and humidity should be avoided. Particular care
should be taken regarding vehicles, which can become very hot inside.
• Storing the camera where pesticides and chemicals are handled should be
avoided. Remove from case and store in a well-ventilated place to prevent
the camera from becoming moldy during storage.
3
• As this camera is not waterproof, do not use the camera where it may come
in contact with rain, water or any other liquid.
• Ensure that the camera is not subjected to substantial vibrations, shock, or
pressure. Use a cushion to protect the camera when it is subjected to the
vibrations of a motorbike, car, ship, etc.
• The temperature range in which the camera can be used is 0°C to 40°C
(32°F to 104°F).
• The LCD monitor will become black at a high temperature but will return to
normal when normal temperatures are returned to.
• The response speed of the LCD monitor becomes slow at low temperatures.
This is due to the properties of the liquid crystal and is not a fault.
• Periodic checks are recommended every 1 to 2 years in order to maintain
high performance.
• If the camera is subjected to rapid temperature changes, condensation
may form on the inside and outside of the camera. Therefore put the
camera in a bag or plastic bag, and take the camera out when the
difference in temperature has subsided.
• Be careful not to allow dirt, mud, sand, dust, water, toxic gases or salt to
enter the camera as this may damage the camera. Wipe away any
raindrops or water droplets and allow the camera to dry.
• Refer to “Precautions When Using an SD Memory Card” (p.24) regarding
the SD Memory Card.
• Please note that formatting an SD Memory Card or built-in memory will
delete all data; however it may still be possible to recover that data using
off-the-shelf data recovery software. Please manage your camera’s
memory at your own risk.
• Please do not press forcefully on the LCD monitor. This could cause
breakage or malfunction.
• Be careful not to sit down with the camera in your back pocket as this may
damage the exterior of the camera or the LCD monitor.
• When using a tripod with the camera, be careful not to overtighten the
screw in the tripod socket on the camera.

Getting Started
Installing the Batteries
Install the batteries into the camera. Use two AA alkaline, AA lithium, AA
Ni-MH, or AA nickel manganese batteries.
1
Open the battery/card cover.
2
Insert the batteries, making sure the (+) and (–) on the
batteries match the (+) and (–) inside the battery
compartment.
Close the battery/card cover and slide it in the opposite
direction of 1.
3
Slide the battery/card cover in the direction 1. The cover will automatically
open in the direction 2 when you release your fingers from it.
• AA alkaline, AA lithium and AA nickel manganese batteries are not
rechargeable.
• Do not open the battery/card cover or remove the batteries while
the camera is turned on.
• If you do not intend to use the camera for a long time, remove the batteries.
If the batteries are left in the camera for a long time, they may leak.
• If the batteries have been removed from the camera for a long
time, when they are reinserted and the camera is turned on, the
message [Battery depleted] may appear. This can also happen
when using the camera for the first time; however this is not a
malfunction. Wait a minute and then turn the camera on again to
reset the camera. The date and time may also be reset.
• Insert the batteries correctly. If the batteries are incorrectly
oriented, malfunction may result. If the ends of the batteries look
dirty, wipe them before inserting into the camera.
18
• Use the AC adapter kit K-AC62 (optional) if you intend to use the
camera for a long time. (p.20)
• Image Storage Capacity and Playback Time
(at 23°C with the LCD monitor on and fresh AA alkaline batteries inserted)
Image Storage
Approx. 240 pictures
Time*2
Playback
Approx. 400 min.
*1: Recording capacity shows approximate number of shots recorded during
CIPA-compliant testing (with LCD monitor on, flash used for 50% of the shots,
and 23°C). Actual performance may vary according to operating conditions.
*2: According to the result of in-house testing.
• In general, battery performance may temporarily deteriorate as the
temperature decreases. Be sure to take spare batteries when using
the camera in a cold region and keep the batteries warm by placing
them in your pocket or inside your coat. Battery performance that
has deteriorated due to cold temperature will return to normal
performance when the batteries reach room temperature.
• Due to their characteristics, AA alkaline batteries may not allow
the camera to make full use of its capabilities, and therefore they
are not recommended except for emergency use.
• Due to their characteristics, AA alkaline batteries and nickel manganese
batteries may not allow the camera to make full use of its capabilities
when used at cold temperatures. Use of AA lithium batteries is
recommended when the camera is used at cold temperatures.
• Be sure to take spare batteries with you when traveling abroad or
to a cold region, or if you intend to take a lot of pictures.

not inserted.
• Be sure to use this camera to format an SD Memory Card that is
unused or has been used on another camera. Refer to “Formatting
an SD Memory Card or the Built-in Memory” (p.131) for
instructions on formatting.
• Make sure that the camera is turned off before inserting or
removing the SD Memory Card.
The still picture storage capacity varies depending on the capacity
of the SD Memory Card and the selected number of recorded pixels
and quality level. (p.155)

Precautions When Using an SD Memory Card
1
Getting Started
24
• The SD Memory Card is equipped with a
write-protect switch. Setting the switch to
LOCK protects the existing data by
prohibiting recording of new data, deletion
of existing data or formatting of the card. Write-protect switch
r appears on the LCD monitor when the
card is write-protected.
• Care should be taken when removing the SD Memory Card immediately after
using the camera, as the card may be hot.
• Do not remove the SD Memory Card or turn the camera off while data is being
saved to the card, images or sound files are being played back, or the camera
is connected to a computer with the USB/AV cable, as this may cause the
data to be lost or the card to be damaged.
• Do not bend the SD Memory Card or subject it to violent impact. Keep it away
from water and store away from high temperature.
• Do not remove the SD Memory Card during formatting as this may damage
the card and render it unusable.
• The data on the SD Memory Card may be deleted in the following
circumstances. PENTAX does not accept any liability for data that is deleted
(1) when the SD Memory Card is mishandled by the user.
(2) when the SD Memory Card is exposed to static electricity or electrical
interference.
(3) when the card has not been used for a long time.
(4) when the card is ejected or the batteries are removed while the data on
the card is being recorded or accessed.
• If the SD Memory Card is not used for a long time, the data on the card may
become unreadable. Be sure to regularly make a backup of important data on
a computer.
• Avoid using or storing the card where it may be exposed to static electricity or
electrical interference.
• Avoid using or storing the card in direct sunlight or where it may be exposed
to rapid changes in temperature or to condensation.
• When using an SD Memory Card with a slow recording speed, recording may
stop while you are taking movies even when there is adequate space in the
memory, or shooting and playback may take a long time.
• For information on compatible SD Memory Cards, visit the PENTAX website
or contact your nearest PENTAX Service Center.

About the “auxiliary AF light”
When you attempt auto focusing on a dark subject, the camera may
emit orange light toward the subject. This is the “auxiliary AF light”,
which helps the camera to focus on the subject under the low light
conditions.
The auxiliary AF light of this camera conforms to the safety standard
(IEC60825-1) for Class 1 LED product. Looking at the light directly
will not create safety hazard. However, do not look into the emitter
from a very short distance since you may feel dazzled.

A histogram shows the
brightness distribution of an

represents brightness (dark at

and the vertical axis represents
the number of pixels.
(Dark) ←Brightness→ (Bright)
The shape of the histogram before

whether the brightness and contrast are correct or not, and lets you decide
if you need to use EV compensation and take the picture again.

Printing Using PictBridge
By connecting the camera to a printer that supports PictBridge using the
supplied USB/AV cable (I-UAV62), you can print images directly from the
camera without using a PC. Connect the camera to the printer and select
the images you want to print and the number of copies on the camera.
• You are recommended to use the AC adapter kit K-AC62 when the
camera is connected to the printer. The printer may not work
properly or the image data may be lost if the battery runs out of
power while the camera is connected to the printer.
• Do not disconnect the USB/AV cable during data transfer.
• Depending on the type of printer, not all the settings made on the
camera (such as print settings and DPOF settings) may be valid.
• A printing error may occur if the selected number of copies
exceeds 500.
• Printing the index of the images (printing multiple images on a single
sheet) cannot be performed directly from the camera. Make the
settings on a printer supporting index printing function or use a PC.

All PENTAX cameras purchased through authorized bona fide photographic
distribution channels are guaranteed against defects of material or workmanship
for a period of twelve months from date of purchase. Service will be rendered, and
defective parts will be replaced without cost to you within that period, provided the
equipment does not show evidence of impact, sand or liquid damage,
mishandling, tampering, battery or chemical corrosion, operation contrary to
operating instructions, or modification by an unauthorized repair shop. The
manufacturer or its authorized representatives shall not be liable for any repair or
alterations except those made with its written consent and shall not be liable for
damages from delay or loss of use or from other indirect or consequential
damages of any kind, whether caused by defective material or workmanship or
otherwise; and it is expressly agreed that the liability of the manufacturer or its
representatives under all guarantees or warranties, whether expressed or
implied, is strictly limited to the replacement of parts as hereinbefore provided. No
refunds will be made on repairs by non-authorized PENTAX service facilities.

Appendix
Procedure During 12-month Warranty Period
Any PENTAX which proves defective during the 12-month warranty period should
be returned to the dealer from whom you purchased the equipment or to the
manufacturer. If there is no representative of the manufacturer in your country,
send the equipment to the manufacturer, with postage prepaid. In this case, it will
take a considerable length of time before the equipment can be returned to you
owing to the complicated customs procedures required. If the equipment is
covered by warranty, repairs will be made and parts replaced free of charge, and
the equipment will be returned to you upon completion of servicing. If the
equipment is not covered by warranty, regular charges of the manufacturer or of
its representatives will apply. Shipping charges are to be borne by the owner. If
your PENTAX was purchased outside of the country where you wish to have it
serviced during the warranty period, regular handling and servicing fees may be
charged by the manufacturer’s representatives in that country. Notwithstanding
this, your PENTAX returned to the manufacturer will be serviced free of charge
according to this procedure and warranty policy. In any case, however, shipping
charges and customs clearance fees to be borne by the sender. To prove the date
of your purchase when required, please keep the receipt or bills covering the
purchase of your equipment for at least a year. Before sending your equipment
for servicing, please make sure that you are sending it to the manufacturer’s
authorized representatives or their approved repair shops, unless you are
sending it directly to the manufacturer. Always obtain a quotation for the service
charge, and only after you accept the quoted service charge, instruct the service
station to proceed with the servicing.
