Precautions
On database files
When you insert a memory card without a database file into the camera and turn on the power, part of
the memory card capacity is used to automatically create a database file. It may take some time until
you can perform the next operation.
If a database file error occurs, import all the images to a computer, then format the memory card.
Notes on recording
Before you start recording, make a trial recording to make sure that the camera is working correctly.
The camera is neither dust-proof, nor splash-proof, nor waterproof.
Avoid exposing the camera to water. If water enters inside the camera, a malfunction may occur. In
some cases, the camera cannot be repaired.
Do not aim the camera at the sun or other bright light. It may cause the malfunction of the camera.
Do not use the camera near a location that generates strong radio waves or emits radiation. Otherwise,
the camera may not properly record images.
Do not shake or strike the camera. It may cause a malfunction and you may not be able to record
images. Furthermore, the recording media may become unusable or image data may be damaged.
When the battery level becomes low, the lens might stop moving. Insert a charged battery pack and
turn on the camera again.
Do not use/store the camera in the following places
In an extremely hot, cold or humid place
In places such as in a car parked in the sun, the camera body may become deformed and this may
cause a malfunction.
Storing under direct sunlight and near a heater
The camera body may become discolored or deformed, and this may cause a malfunction.
In a location subject to rocking vibration
Near strongly magnetic place

Note on disposal/transfer of the camera
To protect personal data, perform the following when disposing of or transferring the camera.
Reset all camera settings by pressing RESET button.
Carl Zeiss lens (DSC-QX100 only)
The camera is equipped with a Carl Zeiss lens which is capable of reproducing sharp images with
excellent contrast. The lens for the camera has been produced under a quality assurance system certified
by Carl Zeiss in accordance with the quality standards of Carl Zeiss in Germany.
On carrying
Do not sit down in a chair or other place with the camera in the back pocket of your trousers or skirt, as
this may cause malfunction or damage the camera.
On operating temperatures
Your camera is designed for use under the temperatures between 0°C and 40°C (32°F and 104°F).
Shooting in extremely cold or hot places that exceed this range is not recommended.
On moisture condensation
If the camera is brought directly from a cold to a warm location, moisture may condense inside or
outside the camera. This moisture condensation may cause a malfunction of the camera.
If moisture condensation occurs, turn off the camera and wait about an hour for the moisture to
evaporate. Note that if you attempt to shoot with moisture remaining inside the lens, you will be
unable to record clear images.
On image data compatibility
The camera conforms with DCF (Design rule for Camera File system) universal standards established
by JEITA (Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association).
Sony does not guarantee that other equipment will play back images recorded with the camera.
Notes on the lens
Be careful not to bump the lens, and be careful not to apply force to it.
Note on wireless LAN
We assume no responsibility whatsoever for any damage caused by unauthorized access to, or
unauthorized use of, destinations loaded on the camera, resulting from loss or theft.

Battery pack
Compatible battery pack
The NP-BN (supplied) or NP-BN1 (sold separately) can be used with the camera.
On charging 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.
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.
Effective use of the battery pack
Battery performance decreases in low temperature surroundings. So in cold places, the operational
time of the battery pack is shorter. We recommend 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. (If there are any metal objects such as keys in your pocket, be aware of short-circuits.)
The battery pack will run out quickly if you use the zoom frequently.
We recommend having spare battery packs handy for two times 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.
You may not be able to turn on the camera or the battery pack may not be effectively charged if the
terminal section of the battery is dirty. In this case, wipe any dust off lightly using a soft cloth or a
cotton swab to clean the battery.
How to store the battery pack
Fully discharge the battery pack before storing and store the camera in a cool, dry place. To maintain
the battery pack’s function, charge the battery pack and then fully discharge it in the camera at least
once a year while storing.
To prevent staining the terminal, short-circuiting, etc., be sure to use a plastic bag, etc. to keep away
from metal materials when carrying or storing.
On battery life
The battery life is limited. Battery capacity decreases over time and through repeated use. If the
103
available time of the battery is shortened significantly, 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.

Charging the battery pack
If the Charge lamp of the camera flashes during charging, remove the battery pack being charged, and
then insert the same battery pack into the camera securely again. If the Charge lamp flashes 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 or different one
and check that the battery is charged correctly. If the battery is charged correctly, a battery error may
have occurred.
If the Charge lamp flashes, this indicates that charging has stopped temporarily and is on standby.
When the temperature returns to the appropriate range, charging resumes 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).
