Loading the
batteries
Insert a coin into the groove of the
battery cover on the side of the grip
and open the cover.
Insert two 3V lithium batteries as
shown and replace the cover.
Use Panasonic CR123A, Duracell
DL123A, or equivalent.
* Do not mix different types of batteries or
new and old batteries at the same time.
* Remove batteries if you do not plan to use
the camera for an extended period of time
(more than a year).
6
Set the power switch to ON to check
the batteries. The battery check
indicator will be displayed for 12
seconds.
Checking the
batteries

When " " is displayed, batteries are
OK.
If " " flashes, batteries are low,
have spares handy.
If " " is displayed continuously,
batteries should be replaced
immediately.
* When the battery power is low, the
flash will take longer to recharge.
* Before replacing the batteries, set
the power switch to OFF.
Attaching the
strap
8
Open the back cover by sliding the
back cover release toward the top of
the camera.
Loading the film
This camera is designed to
use DX-coded 35mm film,
DX coding, used by
virtually all major film
manufacturers, allows the
camera to identify and set
9
the film speed automatically. If DX-coded film is
unavailable, use ISO 100
film.
Insert the film cartridge into the
camera. Always avoid direct sunlight
when loading the film.
Make sure the film lies flat.
Align the film leader with the red
film loading indicator.
Unless the film leader matches the
film loading indicator, the film may
not be loaded.
* Do not touch the lens inside the
body with your fingers or the film
leader.
10
Close the back cover. The film
automatically advances to the first
frame.
Set the power switch to ON to make
sure that the exposure counter shows
"1".
If film is improperly loaded, the LCD
panel will display a blinking "E". In
this case, open the back cover, and
realign the film leader.
11
Use the window in the camera back
to check type of film loaded.
Unloading the film
The camera automatically rewinds
If you want to rewind the film before
the film when you reach the end of a
roll. The exposure counter on the LCD
panel counts down as the film is
rewinding.
the end of the roll, press the rewind
button with the tip of a ballpoint pen.
Do not use any device with a sharp
tip.
* The final reading of the exposure counter
before rewinding may be more than the
number of exposures specified for the film.
12
Once the film has been rewound, a
blinking "E" will be displayed on the
LCD panel. Further operations are not
possible until the rewound film
cartridge is removed.
"Rewinding completed" indicator
When the
power switch
is OFF, there
will be no
indication on the LCD panel.
13
When the
power switch
is ON
Open the back cover, and remove
the film cartridge from the camera.
Avoid direct sunlight when removing
the film.
Simple point &
shoot
photography
Set the power switch to ON.
* When the camera is not in use,
always set the power switch to OFF
so that the shutter cannot be
activated accidentally.
While looking through the
viewfinder, aim the camera at your
subject.
How to take pictures
When the power switch is ON,
the LCD panel lights.
The LCD panel goes out after 4 to
5 minutes to minimize battery
drain. The lens will then zoom to
the wide-angle position. After 4
hours the power is automatically
turned to OFF. To resume
operation, set the power switch
to OFF and then to ON again.
14
Use the zoom button to adjust the
size of your subject in the frame,
(telephoto or wide-angle)
The shutter release cannot be operated
while zooming.
15
Press the "T" (Telephoto) on the
zoom button to zoom in. (The
maximum focal length in the "T"
position is 76mm.)
Press the "W" (Wide-angle) on the
zoom button to zoom out. (the
minimum focal length in the "W"
position is 38mm).
Hold the camera correctly.
It is particularly important to hold the
camera steady when shooting at a
longer focal length; use both hands
for maximum stability.
* Keep your fingers and the strap
away from the lens and flash.
16
Position your subject within the
autofocus frame in the center of the
viewfinder.
17
Press the shutter release button
halfway to focus.
When correct focus has been
achieved, the autofocus indicator
(green) will light up in the viewfinder.
If the autofocus indicator is blinking,
correct focus was not achieved. If this
occurs, let go of the shutter release
button. Make sure your subject is
within the autofocus frame in the
center of the viewfinder and press the
shutter release button halfway again.
The entire subject should normally be
positioned within the picture frame,
however, the actual available image
area will become smaller as you get
nearer to the subject. At 0.6m(2ft), the
subject should be positioned within
the close-up correction marks.
Shooting range: from 0.6m(2ft) to
(infinity).

However, the shutter may sometimes
be released erroneously when the
subject is extremely close to the
camera.
19
When correct focus has been
achieved (the autofocus indicator has
lit up), press the shutter release button
fully (gently, to minimize camera
shake).
As soon as the shutter is released,

Auto-S flash significantly
reduces "red-eye"

portraits and group photos.
Red-eye phenomenon is most
likely to occur in very low
light, and at longer focal
lengths (telephoto).
Compose your shot and press the
shutter release button. The flash will
emit a rapid series of low power preflashes, followed directly by the main
flash.

pictures resulting from camera
shake, the camera should be set
firmly in position (with a tripod for
example).
FILL-IN flash
In this mode, the flash always fires
regardless of available light. Use this

Care and storage
Never disassemble the camera; it
contains a high-voltage circuit.
Do not use thinner, benzine or
organic solvents to clean the camera.
Do not touch the DX read-off
contacts.
Do not disassemble or
expose batteries to excessive heat.
Do not rotate the camera once it is
mounted on a tripod. Use the tripod
swivel to vary direction. Do not open
the back cover while it is mounted on
a tripod.
44
Do not expose the camera to
extreme heat (over 40°C/104°F), such
as inside a car during the hot summer
weather, or to extreme cold (below
-10°C/14°F).
45
Do not leave the camera near
magnetic fields, like on top of a TV
set, or radio.
In case of malfunction, take the
camera to your nearest Olympus
dealer or service center.
Questions and answers
Q: What kind of batteries should I use?
A: Use two 3V lithium batteries (DL123A or CR123A). Do not
mix new and old batteries at the same time. Change them
both at the same time.
Q: How long will the battery last?
A: If you use 24-exposure rolls of film and expose half of all
your pictures with flash, two new 3V lithium batteries
(DL123A/CRI23A) will allow you to take 30 or more rolls
of film. If you do not use flash and zoom so often, the
batteries w i l l last much longer.
Q: The camera does not operate. What should I do?
A: (1)Make sure the power switch is ON. (2)Make sure there
are batteries in the camera, and that they are inserted
correctly.(Refer to page 6.) (3)If the film has been rewound,
the camera will not operate until the back cover is opened.
(4)While the flash is being charged, the shutter will not
release. (5)If the distance range to the subject is less than
0.6m, the shutter will not release.
Q: The camera does not focus correctly. What should I do?
A: (1)In the following situations, the camera's autofocus
mechanism may not function properly. Compose your
picture by focusing on a different subject which is in the
same range as your subject.
Objects that reflect too much light
Black objects
Pictures taken through a glass window or wire screening
Pictures including flames or smoke
When the sun is
included in the picture
(2) Use the focus lock when the subject is not in the center of
the picture. (Refer to P.25)
Q: The flash does not fire.
A: Make sure the flash mode is not set to OFF mode.
Q: The camera fails to operate in cold weather. What can I
do?
A: Generally, low temperatures will reduce the battery
performance temporarily. Try to keep the camera warm
before using them.
