Notes on the types of “Memory Stick”
media that you can use (sold
separately)
“Memory Stick Duo” media:
You can use a “Memory Stick
Duo” media with the camera.
Other memory cards cannot be used.
• The LCD screen is manufactured using
extremely high-precision technology so over
99.99% of the pixels are operational for
effective use. However, some tiny black and/or
bright dots (white, red, blue or green) may
appear on the LCD screen. These dots are a
normal result of the manufacturing process and
do not affect the recording.
• For details on “Memory Stick Duo” media, see
page 138.
When using a “Memory Stick Duo”
media with “Memory Stick” media
compatible equipment
You can use the “Memory Stick Duo” media
by inserting it into the “Memory Stick Duo”
media Adaptor (sold separately).
Notes on the battery pack
• Charge the battery pack (supplied) before using
the camera for the first time.
• You can charge the battery pack even if it is not
completely discharged. In addition, 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 the 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 140.

“Memory Stick
Duo” media
Adaptor
• 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 movable lens, and be
careful not to apply force to it.

zOn “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 image 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.

• To avoid blurring of images, hold the camera firmly until the shutter is released. It usually takes a second
after you press the shutter button. Be also sure not to allow the subject to move during this period.
• Red Eye Reduction may not produce the desired effects. It depends on individual differences and
conditions, such as distance to the subject, or if the subject looked away from the pre-strobe.

zHints for preventing blur
Index
The camera moved accidentally when you took the image. This is called “Camera shake.”
On the other hand, if the subject moved when you took the image, it is called “subject blur.”
Besides, camera shake and subject blur occur frequently under low-light or slow shutter
speed conditions, such as those encountered in
(Twilight Portrait) or (Twilight) mode.
In such case, shoot with the below tips in mind.
MENU/Settings
Search
• In Intelligent Auto Adjustment, Easy Shooting mode or Scene Selection is set to (Gourmet) mode,
[SteadyShot] is fixed to [Shooting].
• [SteadyShot] is fixed to [Continuous] while the Smile Shutter function is activated.
• For movies, you can set [Continuous] or [Off] only. The default setting for movies is [Continuous].
• The battery charge is used up more quickly in [Continuous] mode than in [Shooting] mode.
Camera shake
Your hands or body shake while you hold the
camera and press the shutter button, and the
entire screen is blurred.
• Use a tripod or place the camera on a flat surface to
hold the camera steady.
• Shoot with a 2-second delay self-timer and
stabilize the camera by holding your arms firmly at your side after pressing the shutter button.
Subject blur
Even though the camera is steady, the subject
moves during the exposure so the subject is shot
blurred when the shutter button is pressed.
Camera shake is reduced automatically using
the anti-blur function. However, the function
does not effectively reduce subject blur.
• 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.

Cannot print images with the date.
• Using “PMB”, you can print images with date (page 107).
• The camera does not have a feature for superimposing dates on images. However, because the images
shot with the camera include information on the recording date, you can print images with the date
superimposed if the printer or the software can recognize Exif information. For compatibility with
Exif information, consult the manufacturer of the printer or the software.
• If you use a photo printing service, ask them to superimpose the dates on images.
PictBridge compliant printer
A connection cannot be established.
• The camera cannot be connected directly to a printer that is not compliant with the PictBridge
standard. Consult the printer manufacturer as to whether the printer is compliant with PictBridge or
not.
• Check that the printer is turned on and can be connected to the camera.
• Set [USB Connect] to [PictBridge] (page 90).
• Disconnect and connect the cable for multi-use terminal again. If an error message is indicated on the

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). The battery pack may not be effectively charged in temperatures outside this range.
Table of
contents
On the battery pack
Effective use of the battery pack
• Fully discharge the battery pack before storing and store it in a cool, dry place. To maintain the battery
pack’s function, fully charge the battery pack and then fully discharge it on the camera at least once a
year while storing.
• To use the battery pack up, leave the camera in slideshow playback mode until the power goes off.
• To prevent staining the terminal, short-circuiting, etc., be sure to use a supplied battery case when
carrying and storing.
• The battery life is limited. Battery capacity decreases over time and through repeated use. If decreased
usage time between charges becomes significant, it is probably time to replace it with a new one.
• The battery life varies according to how it is stored and the operating conditions and environment in
which each battery pack is used.

How to store the battery pack
Operation
Search
• Battery performance decreases in low temperature surroundings. So in cold places, the operational time
of the battery pack is shorter. 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 the 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.
Compatible battery pack
• The NP-BG1 (supplied) can be used only in G type compatible Cyber-shot models.
• If you use the NP-FG1 battery pack (sold separately), the minutes also appear after the battery remaining
indicator (
60 Min).

• Only NP-BG type or NP-FG type battery packs (and no others) can be charged in the battery charger
(supplied). Batteries other than the specified kind may leak, overheat, or explode if you attempt to charge
them, posing a risk of injury from electrocution and burns.
• Remove the charged battery pack from the battery charger. If you leave the charged battery pack in the
charger, battery life may be shortened.
• The CHARGE lamp of the supplied battery charger flashes in either way:
– Fast flashing: Turns the light on and off repeatedly at the interval of 0.15 seconds.
– Slow flashing: Turns the light on and off repeatedly at the interval of 1.5 seconds.
• When the CHARGE lamp flashes fast, remove the battery pack being charged, and then insert the same
battery pack into the battery charger securely again. When the CHARGE lamp flashes fast again, this
may indicate a battery error or that a battery pack other than the specified type has been inserted. Check
that the battery pack is the specified type. If the battery pack is the specified type, remove the battery
pack, replace it with a new one or another one and check if the battery charger operates correctly. If the
battery charger operates correctly, a battery error may have occurred.
• When the CHARGE lamp flashes slowly, it indicates that the battery charger stops charging temporarily
on standby. The battery charger stops charging and enters the standby status automatically when the
temperature is outside of the recommended operating temperature. When the temperature gets back
within the appropriate range, the battery charger resumes charging and the CHARGE lamp lights up
again. We recommend charging the battery pack in an ambient temperature of between 10°C to 30°C
(50°F to 86°F).
