not store or carry flammable liquids, gases, or
explosive materials in the same compartment
as the camera or its accessories.

2
Prevent damage to subjects’ eyesight
Do not use the flash in close proximity (closer
than 1 m/3 ft) to people or animals. Using the
flash too close to your subject’s eyes can
cause temporary or permanent damage.
Handle and dispose of batteries and
chargers with care
• Use only Samsung-approved batteries
and chargers. Incompatible batteries and
chargers can cause serious injuries or
damage to your camera.
• Never dispose of batteries in a fire. Follow
all local regulations when disposing of used
batteries.
• Never place batteries or cameras on or in
heating devices, such as microwave ovens,
stoves, or radiators. Batteries may explode
when overheated.
Safety precautions
Handle and store your camera carefully
and sensibly
• Do not allow your camera to get wet—liquids
can cause serious damage. Do not handle
your camera with wet hands. Water damage
to your camera can void your manufacturer’s
warranty.
• Do not expose the camera to direct sunlight
or high temperatures for an extended
period of time. Prolonged exposure to
sunlight or extreme temperatures can cause
permanent damage to your camera’s internal
components.
• Avoid using or storing your camera in dusty,
dirty, humid, or poorly-ventilated areas to
prevent damage to moving parts and internal
components.
• Remove the batteries from your camera
when storing it for an extended period of
time. Installed batteries may leak or corrode
over time and cause serious damage to your
camera.
• Protect your camera from sand and dirt when
using it on beaches or in other similar areas.
• Protect your camera from impact, shock,
bending, or press of heavy goods when you
connect either cable or power cord. It may
damage your camera or cable or cause by
electric shock or fire.
• Exercise caution when connecting cables or
adaptors and installing batteries and memory
cards. Forcing the connectors, improperly
connecting cables, or improperly installing
batteries and memory cards can damage
ports, connectors, and accessories.
• Do not insert foreign objects into any of your
camera’s compartments, slots, or access
points. Damage due to improper use may not
be covered by your warranty.
• Do not use broken power cord, plug, or walloutlet. It may cause by electric shock or fire.
Protect batteries, chargers, and memory
cards from damage
• Avoid exposing batteries or memory cards
to very cold or very hot temperatures (below
0º C/32º F or above 40º C/104º F). Extreme
temperatures can reduce the charging
capacity of your batteries and can cause
memory cards to malfunction.
• Prevent batteries from making contact with
metal objects, as this can create a connection
between the + and – terminals of your battery
and lead to temporary or permanent battery
damage.
• Prevent memory cards from making contact
with liquids, dirt, or foreign substances. If
dirty, wipe the memory card clean with a soft
cloth before inserting in your camera.
• Turn off the camera when inserting or
removing the memory card.
• Do not bend, drop, or subject memory cards
to heavy impact or pressure.
• Do not use memory cards that have been
formatted by other cameras or by a computer.
Reformat the memory card with your camera.
• Never use a damaged charger, battery, or
memory card.
3
Use only Samsung-approved accessories
Using incompatible accessories may damage
your camera, cause injury, or void your warranty.
Protect your camera’s lens
• Do not expose the lens to direct sunlight, as
this may discolor the image sensor or cause it
to malfunction.
• Protect your lens from fingerprints and
scratches. Clean your lens with a soft, clean,
debris-free lens cloth.
Important usage information
Allow only qualified personnel to service
your camera
Do not allow unqualified personnel to service the
camera or attempt to service the camera yourself.
Any damage that results from unqualified service
is not covered by your warranty.
Ensure maximum battery and charger life
• Overcharging batteries may shorten battery
life. After charging is finished, disconnect the
cable from your camera.
• Over time, unused batteries will discharge
and must be recharged before use.
• Disconnect chargers from power sources
when not in use.
• Use batteries only for their intended purpose.
4

Getting your subject in focus
Under the following circumstances, it may be difficult to get your subject in focus:
• When the color contrast is not clear
(When someone is wearing clothes similar in
color to the background)
• When the subject is in front of a strong
backlight
• When the subject generates strong reflected
light
• When there is a horizontally repeated line
pattern(window blinds, etc.)
• When the subject is not located in the center
• When there is a flat white wall behind the
subject which does not have specific patterns
• When there is a fast moving subject
• When the subject is too close to the camera
Please try to use the focus lock function.
Adjust the focus by using the half-shutter
function where the camera can focus easily.
Then, simply press the [Shutter] button after
moving the camera to a desired composition.
Keep pressing and holding down the half-shutter
until you actually make a photo shot.
Under the half-shutter state, press the [AEL]
button of the camera to fix the exposure
value and focus information at the same time
according to the setting. To cancel the function,
press the [AEL] button once more. (CD-ROM

subject by expending the screen automatically.
If the focus is adjusted by using the expanded
image, the focus can be adjusted more
accurately. (p. 56)
• Use the [AF/MF] control switch on the
lens to switch the camera to manual
focus.
• If the lens doesn’t have an AF/MF switch
switch, you may be able to select Manual

Recording a movie
• H.264 (MPEG-4 part10/AVC) is the latest
video coding format established in 2003
collaboratively by ISO-IEC and ITU-T. Since
this format uses a high compression rate,
more data can be saved in less memory
space.
• If you use a slow writing memory card, your
movie's recording can be interrupted because
the card can not process data at the rate the
video is being shot. If this occurs, replace the
card with a faster memory card or reduce the
image size.
• If you have the image stabilizer option on when
shooting a movie, the camera may record the
image stabilizer sound.
• When the size of a movie file exceeds 4GB,
the camera automatically stops recording.
If this occurs, continue the movie by starting a
new movie file.
• When formatting a memory card, always
format using this camera. If you format on
another camera or a PC, you can cause a
change in the capacity of the card or make it
incompatible with your camera.

• If you remove the camera lens while recording
a movie, the recording will be interrupted. Do
not change the lens while recording.
• While you shoot a movie, the camera can
record the sounds of the zoom mechanism
working and the sounds the camera makes
when you press the buttons.
• If you change the shooting angle of the
camera suddenly while shooting a movie, the
camera may not be able to record images
accurately. We recommend using a tripod
when shooting a movie. In this way, you can
minimize camera shake.
• In the Movie Shooting mode, the camera
supports only the Multi AF function. You can not
use any other focus area setting functions, such
as Face Detection AF.

The ISO sensitivity, as the film sensitivity
established by the international standards
organization (ISO), represents the degree of
