• The LCD screen and the LCD finder are
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.

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
(Sweep Panorama), or 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
(Anti Motion Blur) and
(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.

You cannot use the battery pack other than the “InfoLITHIUM” battery pack (NP-FH50) for this
camera. There is the
mark on the “InfoLITHIUM” 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). The battery pack may not be fully charged in temperatures outside this range.
• Battery performance decreases in low temperature surroundings and the operational time of the battery
pack is shorter. We recommend putting the battery pack in a pocket close to your body to warm it up and
insert it in the camera immediately for longer battery pack use.
• 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.
When the battery runs off though the remaining battery is sufficient, charge the battery after fully used. The
correct battery level will be displayed.
The remaining charge indicator may not be displayed correctly in the following situation:

data communication of the battery usage.
The “InfoLITHIUM” battery pack calculates the power consumption depending on the camera
usage and shows the battery life on the minute time scale.

How to store 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
(page 78).
On battery life
• 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.

• Only NP-FH type battery packs 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).
