Use this mode to capture subjects and make sure they are at least the distance
from the taking lens as indicated below:
Wide Angle: 0.3 m (1 ft) ~ Infinity
Telephoto: 0.4 m (1.3 ft) ~ Infinity

NOTE:
* When the camera's focus mark is highlighted in green, the user can take
photos normally.

focus on the subject.

* Setting the Image Size and Compression
Picture resolution refers to the number of pixels in a digital picture. Picture
quality depends on the JPEG file compression that the camera applies when the
picture is taken. Higher resolution and less compression makes better quality
and occupies more memory space. Smaller size and normal quality pictures are
easier to email while larger size and fine quality pictures are better for printing.

The chart below indicates the approximate numbers of pictures you can expect

NOTE:
= Scene complexity affects a picture's file size. For example, a picture of
trees in autumn has a larger file size than a picture of blue sky at the
same resolution and quality setting. Therefore, the number of picture or the
length of video clips you can store on a memory card may vary. The number
of pictures on the LCD screen is for reference only.

» Setting Exposure Compensation for Pictures
You can adjust the exposure compensation value (EV) within the range of -2EV
to +2EV in order to compensate for current lighting conditions. This setting can
be used to obtain better result when shooting with backlighting, indirect indoor
lighting, a dark background, and so on.

Changing the ISO Speed
This function enables you to change the camera's sensitivity to light by selecting
different ISO values. ISO is a measure of how quickly your camera reacts to light.
The higher the ISO value, the less light needed to make an exposure, allowing
the same exposure to be achieved with higher shutter speeds or smaller
apertures. In a digital camera, higher ISO value allows higher shutter speed, at
the expense of mottle or grain appearing in the final picture.

About DPOF
"DPOF" stands for “Digital Print Order Format”, which is a format for recording
on a memory card or other medium which captured images and how many
copies should be printed. You can print on a DPOF-compatible printer or at
a professional print service from the memory card in accordance with the file
name and number of copies settings recorded on the card.
With this camera, you should always select images by viewing them on the LCD
screen. Do not specify images by file name without viewing the file contents.
NOTE:
* Print settings are configured for images only. Make sure there are no
video clips or other file besides images in the memory before printing.

7 Using Memory Card
* Using memory card
Your camera comes with built-in flash memory for storing pictures and video
clips. You can expand the memory using a commercially available SD card
(up to 1 GB). The camera senses whether a memory card is inserted, and
automatically saves pictures and video clips accordingly. Note that you
cannot save pictures or video clips to the built-in flash memory while a
memory card is installed in the camera. See pages 82 to 84 for storage
capacities.
Memory card precautions:
1. An electrostatic charge, electrical noise, and other phenomena can cause
data corruption or even loss. Always make sure that you always back up
important data on other media (MO disc, computer hard drive, etc).
2. If a memory card starts to behave abnormally, you can restore normal
operation by formatting it. However, we recommend that you always take
along with more than one memory card whenever using the camera far
away from your home or office.
3. We recommend that you format a memory card when using it for the
first time, or whenever the card you are using seems to be the cause of
abnormal pictures. Remember to format a memory card if it was used in
another digital camera or other devices.
64
= IMPORTANT!
Make sure you turn off the camera before inserting or removing a memory
card.
Be sure to orient the card correctly when inserting it. Never try to force a
memory card into the slot when you feel resistance.
SD memory cards have a write protection switch that you can use to
protect files from accidental deletion. However, you must remove the
write protection whenever you want to record new files onto it, format it,
or delete its files.
Files contained in the SD card recorded by other cameras may conflict
with your digital camera, and valuable data in your existing SD card may
be distorted or lost when the card is inserted in your digital camera. We
strongly recommend the user to use a NEW or formatted SD card for your
digital camera. The manufacturer is not liable for losing or corrupting any
valuable data or files in your SD card due to improper operation.
As tests prove, your digital camera will work with most popular brands of
memory cards.
65
Inserting the SD Card
1. Open the SD card door by pushing it outwards as illustrated.
2. Insert the SD card, ensuring the card is inserted correctly as illustrated.
3. Close the SD card door by pressing it downwards and then slide it back to
lock.
Removing the SD Card
1. Turn off your camera and open
the SD card door.
2. Gently push the SD card inwards
and then release it. The SD card
will eject out of the SD card
slot.
=| IMPORTANT!
— Never insert any other objects into the camera's card slot. Doing so will
create the risk of damage to the camera and card slot.
° Should water or any foreign objects ever get into the card slot,
immediately turn off the camera, remove the battery, and contact your
dealer or the nearest service provider.

autumn has a larger file size than a picture of blue sky at the same resolution
and quality setting. Therefore, the number of pictures and length of video clips
