We recommend high–capacity ALKALINE batteries (2000mAh) as manganese batteries
cannot deliver sufficient power.
Note
Important information about battery usage
Please remove the batteries if the camera will not be used for long periods.
Batteries can lose power over time and are prone to leaking if kept inside the camera.
Low temperatures (below O°C) can affect the performance of the batteries and you may
experience reduced battery life.
Batteries will normally recover at normal temperatures.
Do not use old and new batteries at the same time.
During extended use of the camera, the camera body may become warm. This is perfectly
normal. If you are planning to use this camera for long periods of time, it is advisable to
use an AC adapter.
READY
Connecting to Power
PREPARATION
Using the AC power adapter
If you have access to a mains supply, using an AC Adapter allows the camera to be used
for long periods of time. If you connect the camera to a computer, it is advisable to use an
AC adapter, as this will enable extended use.
Plug the adapter into the connection point (DC IN 6V) on the camera.
Please ensure that you use an AC adapter with the correct
specification for the camera (6v /2.0A).
Failure to do so may affect your warranty.
WARNING
Always turn off the power before taking the AC adapter out of the mains supply.
As with all mains powered devices, safety is important. Ensure that neither the camera nor
adapter comes into contact with water or metallic materials.

TAKING PHOTOS
Select Macro shot mode when the subject is between 0.2m ~ 0.8m from the camera.
Refer to page 32 for information on Macro shooting.
If you take an image in dark place " LOW LUMINANCE" message will display on the LCD
monitor. In addition, it may cause the camera to fix the focus as listed below.
Normal shot mode : 2.5M Macro shot mode : 0.5M
In this case, increase the lighting value or take an image in a bright place.
If you do not select the correct shot mode appropriate to the distance from the subject to the
camera, you will not be able to obtain a clear shot of the subject.
Avoid obstructing the Flash control sensor when you take an image. An image can be
spoiled when a finger, hair or camera strap is in front of the Flash control sensor.
Using the LCD monitor extensively will drain the batteries. We recommend using the optical
viewfinder as often as possible in order to extend battery life. If the LCD monitor is more
appropriate, switching it off between shots will also help to extend the battery life.

IMPORTANT NOTES
Caution!
Your new Samsung camera is a precision instrument. Whilst it is designed to withstand
general wear and tear, there are some important points that will help you get maximum
service and reliability from your camera.
The following should be avoided :
Severe changes in temperature and humidity.
Dust and dirt.
Direct sunlight or the inside of a vehicle in hot weather.
Environments where there is high magnetism or excessive vibration.
Areas with high explosives or highly flammable materials.
Pesticides, etc.
Sand can be particularly troublesome to cameras.
Sand or other small particulates can cause severe malfunctions.
Ensure that there is no contact with sand or similar particles.
Extremes in temperature may cause problems.
If the camera is transferred from a cold to a warm and humid environment, condensation
can form on the delicate electronic circuitry. If this occours, turn the camera off and wait
for at least 1 hour until all moisture is dispersed. Moisture build up can also occour in CF
CARD. If this happens, turn off the camera and remove the CF CARD.
Wait until the moisture has dispersed.
IMPORTANT NOTE
If the digital camera is not used for a long period, an electric discharge can occur. It is a
good idea to remove the batteries and CF CARD if the camera is not used for some time.
If the camera is exposed to electronic interferance, it will turn itself off to protect the CF
CARD.
DO NOT attempt to disassemble or modify the camera. It contains delicate parts and
there are high voltage circuits that can cause electric shocks.
Under certain conditions, static electricity can cause the flash unit to fire.
This is not harmful to the camera and is not a malfunction.
When images are uploaded or downloaded, the data transfer may be affected by static
electricity. In this case, dis-connect and re-connect the USB cable before trying the
transfer again.
ADVANCED
Maintenance
Use a soft brush (available from photo stores) to GENTLY clean the lens and LCD
assemblies. If this does not work, lens-cleaning paper with lens cleaning fluid can be
used.
Clean the camera body with a soft cloth. Do not allow this camera contact with solvent
materials such as benzol, insecticide, thinners etc.
This may damage the body shell of the camera and also affect its performance.
Rough handling can damage the LCD monitor. Take care to avoid damage and keep
the camera in its protective carry case at all times.

Important information whilst using the Removable Disk
The [Removable Disk] indicator will not show when the camera power is off.
We recommend that you should copy the images to the PC to view them. Opening images
directly from the removable disk may be subject to unexpected disconnection.
When uploading images from the PC to the camera, ensure that the uploaded file names
are not the same as those already stored on the CF CARD.
Files with the same file name but different extensions (e.g
: S3500001.jpg/S3500001.avi),JPG file format will appear
first. And if the displayed file is deleted, all the same file
name images are deleted.
When you upload a file that is not taken by this camera to Removable Disk, the ERROR
FILE message will be displayed on the LCD monitor in PLAY mode, and nothing is
displayed in THUMBNAIL mode.
The green lamp next to the viewfinder will blink, when a file is transferred (copy or
deletion) between the PC and camera. Do not remove the USB cable or rotate the mode
dial until the lamp stops blinking. To remove the USB cable, use the [Unplug or Eject
Hardware] icon on the task bar. In Windows 2000, take extra care, as the following may
occur.
1. When an image file from the Removable Disk is deleted : The green lamp will blink for
about 10 seconds after file deletion is completed on the PC.
2. When an image file is transferred between PC and Removable Disk : The green lamp
will blink again 15-20 seconds after the first time it blinks.
The work is not completed until the lamp has finished blinking.
Uploading the sound recorded image to the camera, you should upload both WAV and
JPG file. For example, if you upload S3500001.wav file to the camera, S3500001.jpg file
