Carl Zeiss lens

This camera is equipped with a Carl Zeiss lens which is capable of reproducing sharp images with excellent contrast.

The lens for this camera has been produced under a quality assurance system certified by Carl Zeiss in accordance with the quality standards of Carl Zeiss in Germany.

Notes on the LCD screen and lens

• The LCD screen is manufactured using extremely high-precision technology so over

99.99% of the pixels are operational for effective use. However, there may be some tiny black points and/or bright points (white, red, blue or green in color) that constantly appear on the LCD screen. These points are normal in the manufacturing process and do not affect the recording in any way.

Black, white, red, blue or green points

Memory Stick Duo Adaptor

Notes on the battery pack

• Charge the battery pack (supplied) before using the camera for the first time.

• The battery pack can be charged even if it is not completely discharged. Also, even if the battery pack is not fully charged, you can use the partially charged capacity of the battery pack as is.

• If you do not intend to use the battery pack for a long time, use up the existing charge and remove it from your camera, then store it in a cool, dry place. This is to maintain the battery pack functions.

• For details on the usable battery pack, see

page 123.

• If water droplets or other liquids splash on the

LCD screen and make it wet, immediately wipe off the screen with a soft cloth. Leaving liquids on the LCD screen surface can harm the quality and cause a malfunction.

• Exposing the LCD screen or the lens to direct sunlight for long periods may cause malfunctions. Be careful when placing the camera near a window or outdoors.

• Do not press against the LCD screen. The screen may be discolored and that may cause a malfunction.

• Images may trail across on the LCD screen in a cold location. This is not a malfunction.

• Be careful not to bump the lens, and be careful not to apply force to it.

Basic techniques for better images

Focus Exposure Color Quality Flash

This section describes the basics so you can enjoy your camera. It tells you how to use various camera functions such as the HOME

screen (page 39), the menus (page 41), and so

on.

Focus

Focusing on a subject successfully

When you press the shutter button halfway down, the camera adjusts the focus automatically

(Auto Focus). Remember to press the shutter button only halfway down.

Press the shutter button fully down suddenly.

Press the shutter button halfway down.

AE/AF lock indicator flashing , lit/beeps

Then press the shutter button fully down.

To shoot a still image difficult to focus on t

[Focus] (page 31)

If the image looks blurred even after focusing, it may be because of camera shake. t See

“Hints for preventing blur” (as follows).

Basic techniques for better images

Hints for preventing blur

The camera moved accidentally when you took the picture. This is called “Camera shake.”

On the other hand, if the subject moved when you took the picture, it is called “subject blur.”

Camera shake

Cause

Your hands or body shake while you hold the camera and press the shutter button, and the entire screen is blurred.

What you can do to reduce the blurring

• Use a tripod or place the camera on a flat, stable surface to hold the camera steady.

• Shoot with a 2-second delay self-timer and stabilize your camera by holding your shooting arm firmly at your side after pressing the shutter button.

Subject blur

Cause

Even though the camera is steady, the subject moves during the exposure so the subject looks blurred when the shutter button is pressed.

What you can do to reduce the blurring

• Select (High Sensitivity) mode in Scene

Selection.

• Select a higher ISO sensitivity to make the shutter speed faster, and press the shutter button before the subject moves.

Notes

• The anti-blur function is enabled in the factory default settings so that the camera shake is reduced automatically. However, this is not effective for subject blur.

• Besides, camera shake and subject blur occur frequently under low-light or slow shutter speed conditions, such as those encountered in (Twilight) or (Twilight Portrait) mode. In that case, shoot with the above tips in mind.

Basic techniques for better images

Exposure

Adjusting the light intensity

You can create various images by adjusting the exposure and the ISO sensitivity. Exposure is the amount of light that the camera will receive when you release the shutter.

Exposure:

Shutter speed = Length of time the camera receives light

Aperture = Size of the opening allowing light to pass through

ISO sensitivity (Recommended Exposure

Index)

= Recording sensitivity

Overexposure

= too much light

Whitish image

Correct exposure

Underexposure

= too little light

Darker image

The exposure is automatically set to the proper value in the auto adjustment mode.

However, you can adjust it manually using the functions below.

Adjusting EV:

Allows you to adjust the exposure

determined by the camera (pages 24, 34).

Metering Mode:

Allows you to change the part of the subject to be measured to determine the

exposure (page 33).

Basic techniques for better images

Adjusting ISO Sensitivity (Recommended Exposure Index)

ISO sensitivity is a speed rating for recording media that incorporates an image sensor that receives light. Even when the exposure is the same, images differ depending on the ISO sensitivity.

To adjust the ISO sensitivity, see page 34.

High ISO sensitivity

Records a bright image even when shooting in a dark location, reducing blur with a high shutter speed.

However, the image tends to become noisy.

Low ISO sensitivity

Records a smoother image.

However, when the exposure is insufficient, the image may become darker.

Color

On the effects of lighting

The apparent color of the subject is affected by the lighting conditions.

Example: The color of an image affected by light sources

Weather/lighting

Characteristics of light

Daylight

White (standard)

Cloudy

Bluish

Fluorescent

Green-tinged

Incandescent

Reddish

The color tones are adjusted automatically in the auto adjustment mode.

However, you can adjust color tones manually with [White Balance] (page 49).

Basic techniques for better images

Quality

On “image quality” and “image size”

A digital image is made up of a collection of small dots called pixels.

If it contains a large number of pixels, the picture becomes large, it takes up more memory, and the image is displayed in fine detail. “Image size” is shown by the number of pixels.

Although you cannot see the differences on the screen of the camera, the fine detail and data processing time differ when the image is printed or displayed on a computer screen.

Description of the pixels and the image size

1 Image size: 8M

3264 pixels × 2448 pixels = 7,990,272 pixels

2 Image size: VGA

640 pixels × 480 pixels = 307,200 pixels

Basic techniques for better images

Flash

On using the flash

The eyes of the subject may come out red, or fuzzy white circular spots may appear when using the flash. These phenomena can be reduced by taking the following steps.

The “Red-eye phenomenon”

This is caused by the reflection of flash light off the blood vessels of the retina of the subject’s eyes because the pupils of the subject’s eyes are wide open in a dark place.

Camera Eye

Retina

How can the “Red-eye phenomenon” be reduced?

• Set [Red Eye Reduction] to [On] (page 52).

• When the eyes of the subject turn out red, correct the image with [Retouch] on the viewing menu

(page 57) or with the supplied software “Picture Motion Browser”.

The “White circular spots”

This is caused by particles (dust, pollen, etc.) in the air, which when they are close to the lens, can be accentuated by the camera’s flash.

Camera

Subject

Particles (dust, pollen, etc.) in the air

How can the “White circular spots” be reduced?

• Light the room and shoot the subject without a flash.

* Even though you selected (High Sensitivity) mode in Scene Selection, the shutter speed might be slower under low-light conditions, or in a dark place. In that case, use a tripod or hold your shooting arm firmly at your side after pressing the shutter button.

Shooting in Smile Shutter mode

A Press the shutter button all the way down.

The [ ] is displayed to indicate that the camera is at the capturing smile screen. When a smile is detected, the shutter is released automatically to take the picture.

The smile shutter lamp will light when shooting (pages 15, 16).

B Holding down the shutter button again exits the capturing smile screen.

• A maximum of 6 images can be taken. Shooting ends automatically when either the recording medium/ internal memory becomes full or 6 images is reached.

• If a smile is not detected, set the [Smile Level] (page 78).

• A smile cannot be detected unless a face is detected.

• In some shooting environments, face detection is not possible and the shutter will not be released.

• A smile can be detected for only one person displayed in the face detection frame after pressing the shutter button all the way down.

• If multiple faces are detected, the face touched before pressing the shutter button halfway down is given priority. If no face is touched, the camera will select the primary subject for deciding which face is given priority.

• The image may not be in focus if the distance between the camera and the subject is changed after pressing the shutter button all the way down. The suitable exposure may not be obtained if the surrounding brightness changes.

• The shutter may be released at the wrong time.

z Hints for better capturing of smiles

A Do not cover the eyes with the bangs.

B Try to orient the face in front of the camera and be as level as possible. The detection rate is higher when the eyes are narrowed.

C Give a clear smile with an open mouth. The smile is easier to detect when the teeth are showing.

On the “Memory Stick Duo”

Notes on using the Memory Stick Duo

Adaptor (not supplied)

• To use a “Memory Stick Duo” with a “Memory

Stick” compliant device, be sure to insert the

“Memory Stick Duo” into a Memory Stick Duo

Adaptor. If you insert a “Memory Stick Duo” into a “Memory Stick” compliant device without a Memory Stick Duo Adaptor, you might not be able to remove it from the device.

• When inserting a “Memory Stick Duo” into a

Memory Stick Duo Adaptor, make sure the

“Memory Stick Duo” is inserted facing in the correct direction, then insert it all the way in.

Incorrect insertion may result in a malfunction.

• When using a “Memory Stick Duo” inserted into a Memory Stick Duo Adaptor with a

“Memory Stick” compliant device, make sure that the Memory Stick Duo Adaptor is inserted facing the correct direction. Note that improper use may damage the equipment.

• Do not insert a Memory Stick Duo Adaptor into a “Memory Stick” compliant device without a

“Memory Stick Duo” attached. Doing so may result in malfunction of the unit.

Notes on using “Memory Stick PRO

Duo” (not supplied)

“Memory Stick PRO Duo” with a capacity up to

8 GB have been confirmed to operate properly with this camera.

Notes on using “Memory Stick Micro”

(not supplied)

• To use a “Memory Stick Micro” with this camera, be sure to insert the “Memory Stick

On the battery pack

On charging the battery pack

We recommend charging the battery pack in an ambient temperature of between 10°C to 30°C

(50°F to 86°F). You may not be able to efficiently charge the battery pack outside of this temperature range.

Effective use of the battery pack

• Battery performance decreases in low temperature surroundings. So, the time that the battery pack can be used is shorter in cold places. We recommend the following to ensure longer battery pack use:

– Put the battery pack in a pocket close to your body to warm it up, and insert it in your camera immediately before you start shooting.

• The battery pack will run out quickly if you use the flash or zoom frequently.

• We recommend having spare battery packs handy for two or three times the expected shooting time, and making trial shots before taking the actual shots.

• Do not expose the battery pack to water. The battery pack is not water-resistant.

• Do not leave the battery pack in extremely hot places, such as in a car or under direct sunlight.

How to store the battery pack

• If the battery pack is not to be used for a long time, fully charge it and then fully use it up once a year on your camera before storing the battery pack in a dry, cool place. Repeat this charging and using up once a year to maintain the battery pack’s function.

• To use the battery pack up, leave your camera in

slide show (page 54) playback mode until the

power goes off.

• To prevent staining the terminal, shortcircuiting, etc., be sure to use a supplied battery case when carrying and storing.

On battery life

• The battery life is limited. Battery capacity decreases little by little as you use it more and more, and as time passes. If the battery operating time seems shortened considerably, a probable cause is that the battery pack has reached the end of its life. Buy a new battery pack.

• The battery life varies according to how it is stored and the operating conditions and environment in which each battery pack is used.

Compatible battery pack
