mode (p. 29)
No Display
Off (Flash Override) mode
(p. 31)
Fill-In Flash (Forced
Activation) mode (p. 32)
Note: The flash strength is

dark places.
The orange lamp lights when
the shutter release button is
depressed halfway.
Notes:
When the orange lamp is

the shutter release button, and
wait for several seconds.
Maximum distance is about 70%

when
using reversal film.
Flash Working Range (with
color negative film)
RED EYE REDUCING FLASH
Significantly reduces the
phenomenon of "red-eye"
(when a subject's eyes
appear red in flash
photography).
In the
flash mode, the camera
will fire a series of low-power preflashes before the regular flash.
Red-eye reduction may not
be effective when the
subject:
Is not looking at the flash from
the right front.
Is not watching the pre-
flashes.
Is too far from the camera.
29
The effectiveness of red-eye
reduction varies depending on
the individual characteristics of
subjects.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to hold the
camera still until the shutter
releases. It takes approximately
one second.
30
OFF (FLASH OVERRIDE)
When you don't want the
flash to fire even in the dark
or when you want to shoot
such subjects as fireworks.
Use this mode in situations
where flash photography is not
desired or is prohibited or in
twilight or night scenes.
Note: Since a slow shutter speed
(down to 1 second) is
automatically selected in lowlight situations, the use of a
tripod is recommended. Closing
the lens barrier restores the Auto
Flash mode.
31
FILL-IN FLASH
(Forced Activation)
When you want the flash to
fire for each shot.
The flash fires regardless of
available light. Use this mode to
compensate for a shadow cast
on the subject's face (such as
the shadow of a tree). It is also
used when shooting in backlit
conditions or under artificial
lighting (such as fluorescent
light). Use this mode within the
flash working range (p. 28).
Closing the lens barrier restores
the Auto Flash mode.

month, day, hour, and minute.
The data correction will be
finished when the mode button is
pressed again.
40
PRINTING THE DATE AND TIME (for
QUARTZDATE models only)
Choose the desired mode.
The mode will switch in the
described order.
The date unit uses the same
power switch as the main unit.
Make sure to correct the data
after the battery is replaced.
The data is imprinted in the lower
right of the picture. If there is
something whitish or tinged with
orange where the data is
imprinted, the data may be
difficult to read. The data may
not be printed correctly on the
frame(s) after the specified final
exposure of the film.

CARE AND STORAGE
Do not leave the camera in any
place exposed to excessive
heat, humidity, or direct
sunlight — for example, in a
car or on the beach.
Do not expose the camera to
formalin or naphthalene.
If the camera gets wet, wipe it
with a dry towel. The salt in
seawater can be especially
damaging.
Do not use organic solvents,
such as alcohol or paint thinner
when cleaning the camera.
Do not leave the camera on or
near a television, refrigerator,
or other appliance with a
magnetic field.
43
Do not expose the camera to
dust or sand as this could
cause serious damage.
Do not shake or shock the
camera.
Do not apply excessive force to
the zoom lens.
Keep the camera in a wellventilated place.
Do not expose the camera to
extreme heat (over 40°C/104°F)
or to extreme cold (below
-10°C/14°F). Low
temperatures, even within this
range, may sometimes cause
deterioration in battery
performance, temporarily
disabling the camera.
44
When transporting the camera
from a cold place to a warm
place or in the event of a
sudden temperature change,
put the camera into a plastic
bag. This allows the camera's
temperature to change slowly.
Once the camera has adjusted
to the new temperature, you
can remove it from the bag and
use it.
45
Avoid leaving the camera unused for
long periods of time. This can cause
mold to grow on the camera as well
as other problems. Try to press the
shutter release button and check the
operation of the camera before use.
When boarding an airplane, do not
put rolls of exposed film into your
check-in luggage regardless of the
film speed. If your camera has film in
it, do not put it in your check-in
luggage either. Otherwise, airport Xray machines may cause the film to
be exposed. Always bring your film
and camera on board yourself. Also,
when carrying film in your hand
luggage, give it to the security officer
for manual inspection so that the film
does not have to pass through X-ray
machines.
