Thank you for purchasing this DC-1030i digital camera. Please read these operating
instructions carefully in order to use the product correctly. Keep the instructions in a safe
place after reading so that you can refer to them later.
Disclaimer
We assume no responsibility over and above the provisions of the Product Liability Law for
damages suffered by the user or third parties as a result of inappropriate handling of the
product or its accessories, or by their operational failure and by their use. We reserve the right
to make changes to this product and its accessories without prior notice.
Warning! Never try to open the camera or to take it apart. This will invalidate all guarantee
claims.
Using your batteries
For best performance and prolonged battery life, we recommend the use of AA lithium or
rechargeable NiMH batteries.
Extending battery life
The following functions use up a great deal of battery power and should therefore only be
used occasionally:
•
Excessive use of flash
•
Editing images on the camera display
•
Using the camera display as a view finder
The battery life can be affected by soiling. Please clean the contacts with a clean and dry
cloth before putting the batteries in the camera.
Battery performance drops at temperatures below 5 °C (41 °F). If you use the camera at low
temperatures you should have replacement batteries to hand and ensure they do not get too
cold. Please note: you should not dispose of cold and seemingly flat batteries because these
batteries may work again at room temperature
i
Precautions
y
Before using the camera, please ensure that you read and understand the safety
precautions described below. Always ensure that the camera is operated
correctly.
y
Do not aim the camera directly into the sun or other intense light sources which

Do not try to open the case of the camera or attempt to modify this camera in
any way. High-voltage internal components create the risk of electric shock
when exposed. Maintenance and repairs should be carried out only by authorized

Keep the camera away from water and other liquids. Do not use the camera with
wet hands. Never use the camera in the rain or snow. Moisture creates the
danger of electric shock.
y
Keep the camera and its accessories out of the reach of children and animals to
prevent accidents or damage to the camera.
y
If you notice smoke or a strange odor coming from the camera, turn the power
off immediately. Take the camera to the nearest authorized service center for
repair. Never attempt to repair the camera on your own.
y

Appendix
About the Folder & File Name
Your digital camera automatically creates a directory of folders in the internal
memory or memory card that it uses to organize still images, movie clips and other
information.
Folder Structure
Folder name begins with a 3-digit number from
100 to 999 and followed by “DICAM”, each
folder holds up to 9999 files. If new files are
made, a new folder named in sequence will be
made automatically.
File Naming
File name begins with “DSCI” and are followed by a 4-digit number that increases in
sequence. File numbering starts from 0001 when a new folder is created.
If the highest folder number is 999 and highest file number exceeds 9999, the
camera will display the warning message “Folder cannot be created”. When it
appears, try one of the following ways:
y
Reset the file number and plug in a new memory card.
y
The folder number and file number are initialized and renumbered from 100 and
0001 respectively.
Caution
y
Do not change the folder and file names in the memory card using your
computer. It may be unable to playback the data using the digital camera.
