Important information about battery usage.
When camera is not in use, turn off the power.
Please remove the battery 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 0°C) can affect the performance of the
battery and you may experience reduced battery life.
Batteries will usually recover at normal temperatures.
During extended use of the camera, the camera body may
become warm. This is perfectly normal.
It is easy to buy alkaline batteries. However, the duration for using
batteries varies in accordance with the battery manufacturer or
the photographic conditions
Do not use manganese batteries as manganese batteries cannot
deliver sufficient power.

Instructions on how to use the memory card
Be sure to format the memory card (see p.46) if you are using
a newly purchased memory card for the first time, if it contains
data that the camera cannot recognise, or if it contains images
captured with a different camera.
Turn off the camera power whenever the memory card is being
inserted or removed.
Repeated use of the memory card will eventually reduce the
memory card’s performance. Should this be the case, you will
need to purchase a new memory card. Wear and tear on the
memory card is not covered by the Samsung warranty.
The memory card is an electronic precision device. Do not bend,
drop or subject the memory card to any heavy impact.
Do not store the memory card in an environment with strong electronic
or magnetic fields, e.g. near loud speakers or TV receivers.
Please do not use or store in an environment where there are
extremes in temperature.
Do not allow the memory card to become dirty or to come into
contact with any liquid. Should this happen, clean the memory
card with a soft cloth.
Please keep the memory card in its case when not in use.
During and after periods of extended use, you may notice that the
memory card is warm. This is perfectly normal.
Do not use a memory card that is used in another digital camera.
To use the memory card in this camera, format the memory card
using this camera.
Do not use a memory card formatted by another digital camera or
memory card reader.
If the memory card is subjected to any of the following, the
recorded data may become corrupted :
- When the memory card is used incorrectly.
- If the power is switched off or the memory card is removed
while recording, deleting (formatting) or reading.
Samsung cannot be held responsible for lost data.
It is advisable to copy important data onto other media as
back-up e.g. floppy disks, hard disks, CD etc.
If there is insufficient memory available :
A [Memory Full!] message will appear and the camera will not
operate. To optimise the amount of memory in the camera,
replace the memory card or delete unnecessary images stored
on the memory card.
Don't remove the memory card when the camera status lamp is
blinking as this may cause damage to data in the memory card.
13
Instructions on how to use the memory card
The camera can use SD/SDHC Memory Cards and MMC (Multi
Media Cards).
When using a 256MB MMC memory, the specified shooting capacity will
be as follows. These figures are approximate as image capacities can
be affected by variables such as subject matter and memory card type.

For your printer’s default setting, refer to the user’s guide that
came with your printer.
This unit contains precision electronic components. Do not use
or store this unit in the following locations.
- Areas exposed to severe changes in temperature and humidity.
- Areas exposed to dust and dirt.
- Areas exposed to 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.
Do not leave this camera in places subject to dust, chemicals (like
naphthalene and mothballs), high temperature and high humidity.
Keep this camera with silica gel in a hermetically sealed box
when not planning to use the camera for a long period of time
Sand can be particularly troublesome to cameras.
- Do not let sand get inside the camera when using it on
beaches, coastal dunes, or other areas where there is lots of
sand.
- Doing so may result in failure or may permanently render the
camera unusable.
Handling the camera
- Never drop the camera or subject it to severe shocks or
vibrations.
- Protect the large size LCD monitor from an impact. When this
camera is not used, keep it in the camera case.
- Avoid obstructing the lens or the flash when you capture an image.
69
Important notes
- This camera is not waterproof.
To avoid dangerous electrical shocks, never hold or operate the
camera with wet hands.
- If you use this camera in wet places, such as beach or pool,
do not let water or sand get inside the camera. Doing so may
result in failure or may permanently damage the unit.
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 occurs, turn the camera off and wait for at least
1 hour until all moisture is dispersed. Moisture built up can also
occur on the memory card. If this happens, turn off the camera
and remove the memory card. Wait until the moisture has
dispersed.
Caution on Using the Lens
- If the lens is subjected to direct sunlight, it could result in the
discoloration and deterioration of the image sensor.
- Take care not to get fingerprints or foreign substances on the
surface of the lens.
If the digital camera is not used for a long period, an electric
discharge can occur. It is a good idea to remove the battery and
the memory card if you do not intend using the camera for an
extended period of time.
70
If the camera is exposed to an electronic interference, it will turn
itself off to protect the memory card.
Camera 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 to
come into 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 when not in use.
Do not attempt to disassemble or modify the camera.
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, disconnect and
re-connect the USB cable before trying the transfer again.
Before an important event or going on a trip, you should check
the camera condition.
- Take a picture for testing the camera condition and prepare extra
battery.
- Samsung cannot be held responsible for camera malfunctions.
