camera is shaken
• To take pictures in an intended scene, it is recommended that you take pictures in the
appropriate Recording Mode.
„ The backlight compensation
Backlight refers to when light comes from the back of a subject.
In this case, the subject will become dark, so this function compensates the backlight by
brightening the whole of the picture automatically.

Note
• Use a tripod and the self-timer for best results.
• We recommend setting the flash to Forced Flash OFF [o] when you take pictures at close
range.
• When the camera lens is at a distance beyond the available range from the subject, the
subject may not be focused even if the focus indication lights.
• When the subject is close to the camera, the effective focus range is significantly narrowed.
Therefore, you will have difficulty in focusing on the subject if the distance between the camera
and the subject is changed after focusing on the subject.
• Macro shooting gives priority to a subject close to the camera. Therefore, if the distance
between the camera and the subject is more than 50 cm (1.64 feet) it takes longer to focus on
it in macro shooting than normal shooting.
• When you take pictures at close range, the resolution of the periphery of the picture may
decrease slightly. This is not a malfunction.

Cautions for Use
Optimal use of the camera
Take care not to drop or knock the unit or put a lot of pressure on it.
• Take care not to knock or drop the bag/case that you inserted the camera in as the
shock may cause damage to the camera, lens or LCD monitor.
• Do not attach any other items to the hand strap that’s included with your camera. While
being stored, that item can rest against the LCD monitor and damage it.
• Do not use a paper bag as it can easily rip causing the camera to fall and be damaged.
• We strongly recommend you purchase a good camera bag/case from your local dealer
to protect your camera.
Keep the camera as far away as possible from electromagnetic equipment (such as
microwave ovens, TVs, video games etc.).
• If you use the camera on top of or near a TV, the pictures and sound on the camera may
be disrupted by electromagnetic wave radiation.
• Do not use the camera near cell phones because doing so may result in noise adversely
affecting the pictures and sound.
• Recorded data may be damaged, or pictures may be distorted, by strong magnetic fields
created by speakers or large motors.
• Electromagnetic wave radiation generated by microprocessors may adversely affect the
camera, disturbing the pictures and sound.
• If the camera is adversely affected by electromagnetic equipment and stops functioning
properly, turn the camera off and remove the battery or disconnect AC adaptor (DMWAC6E: optional). Then reinsert the battery or reconnect AC adaptor and turn the camera
on.
Do not use the camera near radio transmitters or high-voltage lines.
• If you record near radio transmitters or high-voltage lines, the recorded pictures and
sound may be adversely affected.
Always use the supplied cords and cables. If you use optional accessories, use the
cords and the cables supplied with them.
Do not extend the cords or the cables.
Do not spray insecticides or volatile chemicals onto the camera.
• If the camera is sprayed with such chemicals, the camera body may be damaged and
the surface finish may peel off.
• Do not keep rubber or plastic products in contact with the camera for a long period of
time.
Maintenance
Uninstall the battery or DC coupler (optional: P9) and wipe them with a soft, dry cloth.
• When the camera becomes dirty, clean it with a soft, slightly damp cloth. Then wipe the
camera with a dry cloth.
• Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner, alcohol or kitchen detergent. This can
cause damage to the body of the camera and the surface may peel off.
• When using chemically treated cloth, read the instructions beforehand.
• When the LCD display becomes dirty, blow away dust and dirt with a commercially
available blower brush. When the dirt is heavy, wipe it with a soft cloth such as an
eyeglass cloth.

About the LCD monitor
• Do not press the LCD monitor with excessive force. Uneven colours may appear on the
LCD monitor and it may malfunction.
• Do not press the LCD monitor with a sharp and hard tip such as the one of a ballpoint pen.
• Do not scrub or press the LCD monitor with excessive force.
• If the camera is cold when you turn it on, the picture on the LCD monitor will be slightly
darker than usual at first. However, the picture will return to normal brightness when the
internal temperature of the camera increases.
Extremely high precision technology is employed to produce the LCD monitor
screen. However there may be some dark or bright spots (red, blue or green) on
the screen. This is not a malfunction. The LCD monitor screen has more than
99.99% effective pixels with a mere 0.01% of the pixels inactive or always lit. The
spots will not be recorded in pictures in the built-in memory or a card.
About the Lens
• Do not press the lens with excessive force.
• Do not leave the camera with the lens facing the sun as rays of light from the sun may
cause it to malfunction. Also, be careful when placing the camera outside or near a
window.
Batteries
Be sure to remove the batteries when you will not be using the camera for a long
period of time.
• If the temperature is too high or low, the terminals may rust causing a malfunction.
If you drop the batteries accidentally, check to see if the body of the batteries and
the terminals are damaged.
• Inserting a damaged battery in the camera will damage the camera.
Bring charged spare batteries when going out.
• Be aware that the operating time of the batteries becomes shorter in low temperature
conditions such as at a ski resort.
• Battery performance may vary greatly depending on the brand used and the storage life
and conditions of the batteries.
• Battery performance temporarily deteriorates in low temperature conditions [10 °C or
less]. However, it recovers when the temperature returns to normal.
• Depending on the temperature and the conditions of use, the camera may not operate
properly and the batteries may become exhausted without warning because the battery
indication is not displayed correctly. This is not a malfunction.
• Exhausted batteries may recover some performance if left for a period of time. However,
they cannot be used for a long time. Be sure to replace them with new batteries.
Dispose of unusable batteries.
• Batteries have a limited life.
• Do not throw batteries into fire because they may cause an explosion.
Do not allow battery terminals to come into contact with metal objects (such as
necklaces, hairpins, etc.).
• This can cause short circuiting or heat generation and you may be badly burned if you
touch the batteries.

2008/12/24 18:25:54
Others
Never leave the camera and the batteries in a car or on a car dashboard in the summer.
• It may cause leakage of the battery electrolyte, a generation of heat, and may cause a
fire and batteries to burst due to the high temperature.
„ Proper care and handling of batteries
Mishandling batteries may cause leakage, heat generation, fire or explosion. Observe the following.
• Do not splash batteries with water/sea water or wet battery terminals.
• Do not peel off or scratch the covering on batteries.
• Do not drop, throw or subject batteries to other strong impacts.
• Do not use batteries that show signs of leakage, deformation, discolouration etc.
• Do not store batteries in high humidity areas or high temperatures.
• Keep batteries away from children.
• Remove the batteries if you do not intend to use the unit for a long time.
• Battery performance deteriorates and recording/playback time decreases when the
ambient temperature is low [10 °C or less]. This is particularly true when using alkaline
batteries so warm them in your pocket etc. before using them. Make sure that no metal
objects such as a lighter are placed together with the batteries when warming them in
your pocket.
• If there is grease or dirt on the battery poles, the recording/playback time may become
extremely short. Before inserting the batteries, clean the battery terminals with a soft,
dry cloth.
If battery leakage occurs, remove the batteries and thoroughly wipe the leakage in the
battery compartment. Insert new batteries or fully charged Ni-MH batteries.
If battery electrolyte spills on your hands or clothes, thoroughly wash them with water.
Battery electrolyte can cause loss of sight if it comes into contact with your eyes. Do not
rub your eyes. Wash them immediately with clean water and consult a doctor.
„ Ni-MH batteries (Nickel Metal Hydride)
You can use Ni-MH batteries after charging them with a nickel metal hydride battery
charger. However, improper handling of the batteries may cause leakage, heat generation,
fire or explosion. Observe the following.
• If there is dirt on the battery poles, you may not be able to charge normally. Clean the
battery poles and the battery recharger terminals with a soft, dry cloth.
• When charging batteries for the first time, or after having not used them for a long
period of time, they may not charge fully. This is a feature of Ni-MH batteries and is
not a malfunction. Battery performance will become normal after a few charges and
discharges.
• We recommend charging the batteries after they are fully discharged. If you charge the
batteries before they are fully discharged, it can reduce battery performance. This is
called “memory effect”.
• If “memory effect” occurs, continue using the batteries until the camera stops working
and then charge them fully. Battery performance will be restored after a few charges and
discharges.
• Over time Ni-MH batteries naturally discharge and their capacity lowers even when they
are not used.
• Once the batteries have reached full charge, do not continue to charge them.
• Do not peel off or scratch the covering on Ni-MH batteries.
• Read the operating instructions for the battery charger.

Ni-MH batteries have a limited life. Battery capacity gradually decreases over time. If the
length of time you can use the camera is extremely short even after fully charging the
batteries, they may have exceeded their life span. Purchase new batteries.
• Battery life differs depending on the conditions of storage and usage and the
environment.
When not using the batteries for a long period of time
• If the batteries are left in the camera they will discharge. This is because a small
electrical current continues to flow even when the camera is turned off. If the batteries
continue to be left in the camera, they will discharge excessively and may become
unusable even if charged.
• When storing the batteries for a long period of time, we recommend charging them once
a year. Remove the batteries from the camera and store them again after they have
completely discharged.
Notice about the rechargeable battery
The battery is designated recyclable. Please follow your local recycling regulations.
Card
Do not leave the card where the temperature is high, where electromagnetic waves
or static electricity are easily generated or exposed to direct sunlight.
Do not bend or drop the card.
• The card may be damaged or the recorded content may be damaged or erased.
• Store the card in the card case or the storage bag after use and when you store or carry
the card.
• Do not allow dirt, dust or water to enter the terminals on the back of the card and do not
touch the terminals with your fingers.
When disposing of/transferring memory cards
If using the ‘format’ or ‘delete’ functions on your camera or computer, this only
changes the file management information, and does not completely delete the data
from within the memory card.
When disposing of or transferring your memory cards, we recommend physically
destroying the memory card itself, or using commercially available computer data
erasing software to completely delete the data from the card.
Data within memory cards should be managed responsibly.

Troubleshooting
First, try out the following procedures (P91–96).
If the problem is not resolved, it may be improved by selecting [RESET] (P23) on
the [SETUP] menu when taking pictures.
Batteries and power source
The camera turns off immediately even when battery power is full.
The remaining battery power is low even if new batteries are inserted.
• Depending on the battery brand and the operating temperature, or if exhausted batteries
are used, the remaining battery power may not be displayed accurately.
The camera cannot be operated even when it is turned on.
• Are the batteries inserted correctly? (P14)
• Use sufficiently charged batteries when using Ni-MH batteries.
The LCD monitor turns off while the camera is turned on.
• Is [AUTO LCD OFF] (P22) of the [ECONOMY] mode active?
Press the shutter button halfway to cancel these modes.
• Are the batteries exhausted?
The camera turns off soon after turning it on.
• Are the batteries exhausted?
• If you leave the camera on, the batteries will be exhausted.
Turn the camera off frequently by using Economy Mode (P22) etc.
Shooting
The picture cannot be recorded.
• Is the mode correctly set? (P17)
• Is there any memory capacity left on the built-in memory or the card?
Before recording, delete some pictures. (P33)
The recorded pictures are pale.
• The picture can become whitish if there is dirt e.g. fingerprints on the lens.
If the lens is dirty, turn on the camera, eject the lens barrel (P10) and gently wipe the
lens surface with a soft dry cloth.
The area around where the pictures were taken becomes dark.
• Was this picture taken with the flash at the close range when the zoom is near [W] (1×)?
Zoom in a little, and then take the pictures. (P30)
The recorded picture is too bright or dark.
Check that the exposure is correctly compensated. (P41)
2 or 3 pictures are taken at one time.
Set other than [HI-SPEED BURST] (P46) in Scene Mode or set [BURST] (P58) to [OFF].

The subject is not focused properly.
• The focus range varies depending on the Recording Mode.
Set the proper Recording Mode for the distance to the subject.
• Is the subject out of the focus range? (P25, 28 and 39)
• Have you taken a picture with jitter? (P30)
The recorded picture is blurred. The optical image stabilizer is not effective.
The shutter speed becomes slower when pictures are taken in dark places so hold
the camera firmly with both hands to take the pictures. (P25)
When taking pictures at a slow shutter speed, use the self-timer. (P40)
The recorded picture looks rough.
Noise appears on the picture.
• Is the ISO sensitivity high or the shutter speed slow?
(When set to [i.AUTO], ISO sensitivity increases for indoor and other shooting
occasions.)
Reduce ISO sensitivity. (P55)
Set [COLOR MODE] to [NATURAL]. (P59)
Improve the ambient light.
• In [HIGH SENS.] and [HI-SPEED BURST] mode, the resolution of the recorded picture
decreases slightly because of high sensitivity processing. This is not a malfunction.
The brightness or the hue of the recorded picture is different from the actual
scene.
• If recording under fluorescent light, the brightness or the hue may change slightly when
the shutter speed becomes fast. This occurs due to the characteristics of fluorescent
light. It is not a malfunction.
A reddish vertical line (smear) appears on the LCD monitor during picture-taking.
• This is a characteristic of CCD, and it appears when the subject has
a bright part. Some unevenness may occur in the surrounding areas,
but this is not a malfunction.
It is recorded in motion pictures but is not recorded on still pictures.
• It is recommended that you take pictures while taking care not to
expose the screen to sunlight or any other source of strong light.
Motion picture recording stops in the middle.
• Depending on the type of the card, recording may stop in the middle.
When you set the picture quality to [WVGA] or [VGA], we recommend using a highspeed card with “10 MB/s” or greater displayed on the package.
If the recording stops even if you use the card of 10 MB/s or faster, this means
the data-writing speed became lowered. We recommend backing up the data and
formatting (P24) the card.
• Are you using a MultiMediaCard? This unit does not support MultiMediaCards.
Recorded image may be warped, or nonexistent colour is surrounding the subject.
• It is possible that the subject may be warped slightly, or the borders get coloured,
depending on the zoom magnification, due to the characteristics of the lens. Also, the
peripherals of the image might look warped because the perspective is enhanced when
the wide angle is used. This is not a malfunction.

• When the camera is not operated for a while, [POWER SAVE] or [AUTO LCD OFF] is
activated for [ECONOMY]. (P22)
• If the LCD monitor turns off when you press the shutter button halfway, the batteries may
run out.
The LCD monitor darkens during use.
• This camera automatically charges for flash recording and may darken the LCD monitor
for efficient charge. The monitor may darken in the following cases;
– After flash recording
– Just after turning the camera ON
– Just after setting to Recording Mode
– When adjusting the zoom or pointing the camera toward dark side
The LCD monitor lights up again to return to recording-ready condition after charging for flash.
The LCD monitor becomes darker or brighter for a moment.
• This phenomenon appears when pressing the shutter button halfway to set the aperture
value and does not affect the recorded pictures.
• This phenomenon also appears when the brightness changes when the camera is
zoomed or moved. This is because of operation of the automatic aperture of the camera,
and it is not a malfunction.
The LCD monitor flickers indoors.
• The LCD monitor may flicker for a few seconds after turning the camera on indoors
under fluorescent light. This is not a malfunction.
The LCD monitor is too bright or dark.

• Is this a non-standard picture, a picture which has been edited using a PC or a picture
which was taken by another make of digital camera?
• Did you remove the batteries immediately after picture-taking or did you take the picture
using the batteries with a low remaining charge?
Format the card to delete the pictures mentioned above. (P24)
(Other pictures will be deleted as well and it will not be possible to restore them.
Therefore, check well before formatting.)
With a calendar search, pictures are displayed on dates differing from the actual
dates on which the pictures were taken.
• Is the clock in the camera set properly? (P16)
• When pictures edited using a PC or pictures taken by other equipment are searched,
they may be displayed on dates differing from the actual dates on which the pictures
were taken.
White round spots like soap bubbles appear on the recorded picture.
• If you take a picture with the flash in a dark place or indoors,
white round spots may appear on the picture caused by the flash
reflecting of particles of dust in the air. This is not a malfunction.
A characteristic of this is that the number of round spots and their
position differ in every picture.
[THUMBNAIL IS DISPLAYED] appears on the screen.
• Is it a picture that has been recorded with other equipment? In such cases, these
pictures may be displayed with a deteriorated picture quality.
A clicking sound is recorded in the motion pictures.
