INTRODUCTION
• Should foreign matter or water ever get into the camera,
immediately turn power off, unplug the AC adaptor from the
power outlet, and contact your dealer or nearest CASIO
service provider. Using the camera under these conditions
creates the danger of fire and electrical shock.
• Should you ever notice smoke or a strange odor coming out
of the camera, immediately turn power off and unplug the
AC adaptor from the power outlet. Using the camera under
these conditions creates the danger of fire and electrical
shock. After making sure there is no more smoke coming
from the camera, take it to your nearest CASIO service provider for repair. Never attempt your own maintenance.
• At least once a year, unplug the AC adaptor from the power
outlet and clean the area around the prongs of the plug.
Dust build up around the prongs can create the danger of
fire.
• If the camera’s case should ever become cracked due to
dropping it or otherwise subjecting it to rough treatment,
immediately turn power off, unplug the AC adaptor from the
power outlet, and contact your nearest CASIO service provider.
• Never use the camera inside of an air craft or in any other
areas where its use is prohibited. Doing so can result in an
accident.
• Physical damage and malfunction of this camera can
cause the image data stored in its memory to be deleted.
Be sure to always keep backup copies of data by transferring them to personal computer memory.
Precautions
General Precautions
Be sure to observe the following important precautions
whenever using the QV-2400UX or the QV-2900UX.
All references in this manual to “this camera” and “the camera” refer to the CASIO QV-2400UX or QV-2900UX Digital
Camera.
• Never try to take pictures or use the built-in display while
operating a motor vehicle or while walking. Doing so creates the danger of serious accident.
• Never try to open the case of the camera or attempt your
own repairs. High-voltage internal components create the
risk of electrical shock when exposed. Always leave maintenance and repair work up to authorized CASIO service
providers.
• Never fire the flash in the direction of a person operating a
motor vehicle. Doing so can interfere with the driver’s vision and create the danger of accident.
• Never fire the flash while it is too close to the subject’s
eyes. Intense light from the flash can cause eye damage if
it is fired too close to the eyes, especially with young children. When using the flash, the camera should be at least
one meter from the eyes of the subject.
• Keep the camera away from water and other liquids, and
never let it get wet. Moisture creates the danger of fire and
electrical shock. Never use the camera outdoors in the rain
or snow, at the seashore or beach, in the bathroom, etc.
E-15
INTRODUCTION
• Never open the battery compartment cover, disconnect the
AC adaptor from the camera or unplug it from the wall
socket while recording images. Doing so will not only make
storage of the current image impossible, it can also corrupt
other image data already stored in camera memory.
Condensation
• When you bring the camera indoors on a cold day or otherwise expose it to a sudden change of temperature, there is
the possibility that condensation can form on the exterior or
on interior components. Condensation can cause malfunction of the camera, so you should avoid exposing it to conditions that might cause condensation.
• To keep condensation from forming, place the camera into
a plastic bag before moving it into a location that is much
warmer or colder than your current location. Leave it in the
plastic bag until the air inside the bag has a chance to
reach the same temperature as the new location. If condensation does form, remove the batteries from the camera and leave the battery compartment cover open for a
few hours.
Operating conditions
• This camera is designed for use in temperatures ranging
from 0°C to 40°C.
• Do not use or keep the camera in the following areas.
— In areas subject to direct sunlight
— In areas subject to high humidity or dust
— Near air conditioners, heaters, or other areas subject to
temperature extremes
— Inside of a closed vehicle, especially one parked in the
sun
— In areas subject to strong vibration
E-16
INTRODUCTION
About the camera’s backlight…
• The camera is equipped with a fluorescent light source to
provide the back lighting for its LCD.
• The normal service life of the backlight is approximately six
years, when the camera is used for about two hours a day.
• Should the LCD image appear abnormally dark, take the
camera to your dealer or an authorized CASIO service provider to have the light source replaced. Note that you will
be charged for this replacement.
• Under very cold conditions, the backlight may require more
time than normal to light, or reddish bands may appear in
the displayed image. These conditions do not indicate malfunction, and normal operation should return at higher temperatures.

IMPORTANT!
• Do not use undue force when rotating the lens mechanism and never try to force it past the point where rotation stops naturally. Rough handling can cause the
lens mechanism to break and other damage to the
camera.
• The proper orientation of the lens when you store the
camera in its case depends on your camera model.
• Whenever you swivel the lens so it is pointing in the direction of the back of the camera, the image on the monitor
screen is automatically adjusted so it shows a mirror image
of what it picked up by the lens. This makes self-portrait
images appear with the correct orientation when viewed on
a display.
* QV-2400UX: Lens should be pointed forward.
* QV-2900UX: Lens should be pointed up.
• Never set the camera down while the lens is pointed
downwards. Doing so can cause bending or other
damage to the area around the lens.
• Always leave the lens cap on the lens except when
you are actually recording images.

• Wide Conversion Lens LU-8W: 0.7X
• Focusing distance when installed
QV-2400UX/QV-2900UX: Approximately 1cm to ∞
Installing a Conversion Lens
Optionally available conversion lenses change the focal distance, which provides enhanced telephoto or wide-angle capabilities. The method you should use to install a conversion
lens depends on your camera model.
• QV-2400UX: You must install an optionally available lens
adaptor (LU-8A) in order to use a conversion lens.
• QV-2900UX: A conversion lens can be installed directly,
without an adaptor.

IMPORTANT!
• Be sure to use the Conversion Lens Adaptor whenever you install a conversion lens. If you don’t, the
lens will come into contact with the conversion lens
when it extends from the camera, resulting in malfunction. (QV-2400UX only)
• Flash is disabled while a conversion lens is being
used.

GETTING ACQUAINTED
• Setting the camera to wide-angle zoom while the Tele
Conversion Lens causes shadows around the periphery of the image. This is because the frame of the attached lens blocks some of the light coming into the
lens. Because of this, you should always use telephoto zoom whenever you are using the Tele Conversion Lens.
• The effects of camera movement are magnified while
the Tele Conversion Lens is being used. Whenever
you are using a conversion lens, install the cushion
that comes with it and mount the camera on a tripod
so it is secure.
• Due to certain characteristics of the Wide Conversion
Lens, you may notice some slight distortion in images
recorded with it installed.
• Make sure that
(Macro Mode) is selected as the
focus mode whenever you are using the Wide Conversion Lens.
• Note that optical zoom is restricted as shown below in
the Macro Mode
.
Using a Filter
The lenses of both camera models are threaded.
With the QV-2400UX, you can screw on an optionally available Conversion Lens Adapter (LU-8A) and then attach a
commercially available lens filter.
With the QV-2900UX, you can screw a commercially available lens filter directly to the lens, without using the Conversion Lens Adapter.
IMPORTANT!
• When using a lens filter with the QV-2400UX, be sure
you first screw the optionally available Conversion
Lens Adapter onto the lens. A filter attached directly to
the lens of the QV-2400UX will come into contact with
the convex surface of the lens and damage it.
• The designs of some filters can cause shadows
around the periphery of the image.
• Auto focus and flash may not produce desired results
while a filter is on the lens.
• Filters do not produce exactly the same results as
those obtained with a film-based camera.
• Do not use multiple filters in combination.
• Use of the flash while a commercially available lens
hood is installed may not produce desired results.
* QV-2400UX: 1X fixed (QV-2400UX)
* QV-2900UX: 1X to 1.6X (QV-2900UX)
E-23
GETTING ACQUAINTED
Lens Precautions
• Fingerprints, dust, or any other soiling of the lens can interfere with proper image recording. Never touch the lens with
your fingers. You can remove dust particles from the lens
surface by using a lens blower to blow them off. Next, wipe
the surface of the lens with a soft lens cloth.
• The lens of the QV-2400UX extends from its body when
you turn on power and retracts when you turn off power.
Take care not to subject the lens to undue force or impact,
and never set the camera face down so the lens is in contact with a tabletop, etc. Be sure to remove the lens cap
before turning on the camera. If you turn on the QV2400UX while the REC/PLAY selector is set to “REC” and
its lens cap is attached, the message “LENS CAP!” appears on the monitor screen and power turns off automatically. If this happens, remove the lens cap and then turn on
power.
• Never remove the batteries from the QV-2400UX or unplug
its AC adaptor while the lens is extended. Doing so leaves
the lens extended, and creates the risk of lens damage.

● Battery Life Guidelines
The battery life guideline values given below indicate the
amount of time at standard temperature (25°C) until power
automatically turns off due to battery failure. They do not
guarantee that batteries will provide the amount of service
indicated. Low temperatures and continued use reduce battery life.
Type of
Operation
Recording one image per minute under the above conditions
reduces battery life to about one sixth of that noted above.
Battery life is greatly affected by how much you use flash,
zoom and other functions, and how long you leave power
turned on.
● Tips for Prolonging Battery Life
• Use the
button to turn off the flash when you are not
using it.
• You can also use the power save settings (page E-37) to
protect against wasting battery power when you forget to
turn off the camera.

● Alkaline Battery Life
The actual life of alkaline batteries is affected by a variety of
factors, including the battery manufacturer, the amount of
time the batteries spend in storage before you use them,
temperature while you are recording, and photographic conditions. As a rule, we recommend the use of lithium batteries
or Ni-MH batteries, which have longer lives than alkaline batteries.
• The above figures are approximations only.
• The above guidelines are based on the following battery
types:
Alkaline: MX1500 (AA) DURACELL ULTRA
Lithium: Energizer
* Battery life varies with brand.
• Figures are based on continuous recording under the following conditions.

GETTING ACQUAINTED
• Formatting is recommended for any memory card that you
suspect contains corrupted image data (due to a DECODE
ERROR, strange image colors, malformed images) or
newly purchased memory cards.
Memory Card Precautions
• Images cannot be recorded with this camera unless a
memory card is installed in it.
• Be sure to use only CASIO brand CompactFlash cards.
Proper operation with other memory cards is not guaranteed.
• Before starting a format operation, load a full set of new
batteries (alkaline or lithium) into the camera or connect
the AC adaptor to power the camera. Interruption of camera power during the format operation results in improper
formatting, making it impossible to use the memory card.
• Static electricity, electrical noise, and other electrical phenomena can cause corruption or even total loss of the data
stored on a memory card. Because of this, you should always make backup copies of important images on other
media (magnetic optical disk, floppy diskette, computer
hard disk, etc.).
IBM Microdrive Precautions
Compatibility of the camera with the IBM microdrive has
been confirmed by CASIO. However, you should note the
following important points whenever using the IBM
microdrive.
• Memory card problems can be corrected by reformatting
the memory card. Reformatting a memory card deletes all
images stored on the card, but you can use a computer to
copy the images you want to keep to the computer’s hard
disk before reformatting your card. If you plan to be recording images where you do not have access to a computer, it
is a good idea to take along an extra memory card or two
just in case you experience an unexpected memory card
problem.
• Be sure to carefully read all of the documentation that
comes with the microdrive before using it.
• Note that the microdrive becomes hot during normal use.
Take care when removing it from the camera.
• Take care to avoid strong pressure on the label side of the
microdrive when it is removed from the camera. Strong
pressure can damage internal components and cause malfunction.
E-42
GETTING ACQUAINTED
• Never turn off camera power or subject the camera to impact while the operation lamp is flashing. Doing so can
cause malfunction of the microdrive.
• The microdrive is a very high precision device. Dropping
the camera can result in malfunction of the microdrive,
even though the camera is undamaged. Take extra care
when handling the camera while the microdrive is installed.
• The microdrive has very large storage capacity. Because
of this, certain operations can take a relatively long time to
perform.
• The microdrive may not operate properly in areas where
barometric pressure is low. Because of this, you should
avoid using it at high altitudes.
• A microdrive consumes much more electrical power than a
CompactFlash card. Depending on how a microdrive is
used, it can greatly reduce battery life. When using alkaline
batteries, certain operating conditions and certain battery
brands can result in batteries going dead right after you
install new ones. Whenever using a microdrive, we recommend that you use rechargeable nickel metal hydride batteries or lithium batteries to power the camera.
• When battery power is low, the amount of time required
between shots may become longer. This longer interval is
designed to protect the microdrive.
In case of microdrive malfunction....
• Contact your original microdrive retailer or the contact
point noted in the microdrive documentation.
• CASIO does not provide any servicing or maintenance
support for the microdrive.
• Note that CASIO assume no responsibility for any data
loss you may suffer while using the microdrive.
• This camera supports use of both a CompactFlash card
and the microdrive. Note, however, that ejecting a
microdrive from the camera is relatively more difficult than
ejecting a CompactFlash card.
