Congratulations on your purchase of the
PENTAX IQ Zoom 80:E and welcome to the
world of Pentax zoom compact photography!
Your compact, light weight camera is a great
companion to preserve your favorite memories.
lts built-in 38-80mm lens gives you the freedom
to frame everything from breathtaking land-
scapes to family portraits, even detailed close-
ups. The built-in auto flash helps you capture
subjects in dimly-lit palces or photograph in-
door scenes with clarity and brilliance. Since
most of the operation - including film loading,
film speed setting, winding rewinding, focus
and exposure control - are automatic, you can
take great pictures effortlessly.
* Please read this manual carefully before op-
erating the camera to take consistently supe-
rior pictures.

Main Switch
To switch on, push the main switch button. The
lens extends slightly to 38mm and the LCD panel
is now on. To switch off, push the main switch
button again.
When not in use, ensure that the camera is
switched off.
Use one 3V lithium battery, type CR123A or
the equivalent. Do not remove the battery be-
fore it is exhausted. If the battery is removed,
the data on the DATE MODEL is initialized.
The lens cover automatically opens and closes
when the main switch is turned on and off. Do
not attempt to open the lens cover manually.
e See page 28, when the battery exhaustion sym-
bol ( 0 ) apperas on the LCD panel.
e If the camera is on and left unused for over 3
minutes, the lens automatically retracts and the
power switches off to save the battery power.
e If the main switch is turned on within 60 min-
utes of auto-power off, the previous setting will
automatically return.
Battery check
After you turn the main switch ON, the lens
slightly extends and the lens cover opens. You are
now ready to shoot.
Hold the camera as still as possible and steady
it against your face. Depress the shutter release
button gently. (If too much force is applied, the
camera is likely to shake, and the picture will
be blurred.) If possible, brace your body
against a stable, stationary object such as a
wall. When using the flash with the camera po-
sitioned vertically, hold the camera so that the
flash is above the lens.
* Do not hold the zoom lens because it moves
back and forth while in operation.
* Make sure not to obstruct the autofocus win-
dow, lens, light sensor window or the built-in
flash with your fingers, hair or other object.
When you move the zooming lever to the right ( 8 ),
the lens moves towards the telephoto side. When you
move the zooming lever to the left ( 444 ), the lens

What appears troublesome may be easily remedied. Here are some problems that may occur and
their remedies.
Causes and Remedies
1. The shutter cannot be released.
Is the main switch turned off? If so, turn it on. See page
Is the battery exhausted? Replace it or insert new battery
if it is exhausted. See page 28.
Is [0] blinking on the LCD panel? If so, the film has
been used up. Insert a new roll. (See page 10.)
2. My printed pictures don't look
very clear.
Did you position the autofocus frame on your subject?
See page 14.
Did you obstruct the autofocus window with your fingers,
hair or other object when you depress the shutter release
button? See page 8.
Is the autofocus window dirty? Wipe it off. See page 14.

minutes. See page 7.

not dark.

All Pentax cameras purchased through author-
tized bona fide photographic distribution chan-
nels 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, tamper-
ing, battery or chemical corrosion, operation
contrary to operating instructions, or modifica-
tion 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 consequen-
tial damages of any kind, whether caused by
defective material or workmanship or other-
wise; and it is expressly agreed that the liability
of the manufacturer or its representatives
under all guarantees or warranties, whether ex-
pressed or implied, is strictly limited to the re-
placement of parts as herein before provided.
No refunds will be made on repairs performed
by non-authorized Pentax service facilities.
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 manufac-
turer, 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 maybe charged by the manu-
facturer’s representatives in that country.
Notwithstanding this, your Pentax returned to
the manufacturer will be serviced free of
charge according to this procedure and war-
ranty policy.
In any case, however, shipping charges and cus-
toms clearance fees are to be borne by the
sender. To prove the date of your purchase
when required, please keep the receipts 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 send-
ing it to the manufacture’s authorized represen-
tatives 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.
The local warranty policies available from
Pentax distributors in some countries can su-
persede this warranty policy. Therefore, we rec-
ommend that you review the warranty card
supplied with your product at the time of pur-
chase, or contact the PENTAX distributor in
your country for more information and to re-
ceive a copy of the warranty policy.
LCD (Liquid-crystal display)
e When the LCD is exposed to high tempera-
tures over about 60°C, it may blacken, but
when the temperature normalizes, it will re-
turn to normal.
* The LCD may also slow down in response to
lower temperatures, but this is a normal
characteristic of an LCD.
What is the red-eye phenomenon in flash pho-
tography |
When a picture is taken using a flash, a sub-
ject's eye may appear red in the print. This phe-
nomenon is caused by the reflection of the
electronic flash in the retina. It can be reduced
when the surroundings of the subjects are
brightened, or shooting distance is shortened or
by employing the red-eye reduction flash fea-
