The Color Temperature scale is a conventional measure of color
expressed in degrees Kelvin (K). The scale runs from reds and yellows
at the low end (below about 2700 K) to blues at the high (above about
5000 K). Every light source, for example, an incandescent bulb, radiates
light that is mainly one color (see the scale above). This one color can
distort the natural colors of a scene, giving everything in the scene a
distinctive color cast. Your camera lets you change the color temperature
setting of the white balance to adjust for the light source so that when
you take pictures, the colors in the picture look natural.
The Color Temperature scale correlates the temperature of what is called
an ideal black body radiator to the color it radiates at that temperature.
For example, a black body radiator glows red when heated to about
2000 degrees Kelvin and glows blue when heated to about 10,000
degrees Kelvin. The color of light from another source, for example, a
fluorescent light, can be correlated to the color radiated by the black
body at a certain temperature, and then expressed in degrees Kelvin.

[ISO 80, 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600, 3200, 6400] :
Generally, with the same amount of available light, you can take pictures
at a faster shutter speed if you increase the ISO value.
However, at high ISOs, the image may be saturated in high luminance.
The higher the ISO value, the higher the camera’s sensitivity to light
and therefore the greater its capacity to take pictures in dark conditions.
However, the noise level in the image will increase as the ISO value
increases, making the image appear coarse.

The camera automatically takes a picture
when it detects the face of the subject
without your pressing the Shutter button. If
you press the Shutter button, the picture is
taken in the normal way. When you take a
smile shot, having the subject smile or show
teeth helps the camera to detect the subject
correctly.

The camera may not be able to detect a smiling face or blinking
eyes if any of the following situations occur:
- The subject is wearing sunglasses.
- The subject is not facing directly to the camera.
- The ambient light is too bright or too dark for the camera to

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 screen 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.
- This camera is not waterproof.
To avoid dangerous electrical shocks, never hold or operate the

may result in failure or may permanently damage the unit.
099
Important notes
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 build-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 evaporated.
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 to use the camera
for an extended period of time.
If the camera is exposed to 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 screen. 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 to test the camera’s condition and prepare an extra battery.
- Samsung cannot be held responsible for camera malfunctions.
If the digital camera is not used for a long period, the date and
time may return to the default settings because the battery has
discharged. In this case, reset the date and time before the
recording.
