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.
Black, white, red, blue or
green dots
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 144.
Carl Zeiss lens
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.

• 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.

Scene Recognition operates in Intelligent Auto Adjustment mode. This function lets the
camera automatically recognize the shooting conditions and shoot the image.
zIf you shoot a still image of a subject that is difficult
to focus on
• The shortest shooting distance is approximately 8 cm (3 1/4 inches) (1 cm (13/32 inches) in
Intelligent Auto Adjustment or Easy Mode) (W), 50 cm (19 3/4 inches) (T) (from the lens). Shoot in
the Close focus mode when you shoot a subject closer than the shooting distance.
• When the camera cannot focus on the subject automatically, the AE/AF lock indicator changes to
flash slowly and the beep does not sound. Either recompose the shot or change the focus setting
(page 56).
• Focusing may be difficult in the following situations:
– It is dark and the subject is distant.
– The contrast between the subject and the background is poor.
– The subject is seen through glass.
– The subject is moving quickly.
– There is reflective light or shiny surfaces.
– The subject is backlit or there is a flashing light.

Notes
Index
• If you cannot pan the camera across the entire subject within the given time, a gray area occurs in the
composed image. If this happens, move the camera fast to record a full panoramic image.
• Since several images are stitched together, the stitched part will not be recorded smoothly.
• Under low light conditions, panoramic images may be blurred.
• Under lights that flicker such as fluorescent light, the brightness or color of the combined image is not
always the same.
• When the whole angle of panoramic shooting and the locked angle are extremely different in brightness,
color and focus, the shooting will not be successful. If this happens, change lock angle and shoot again.
• Sweep Panorama is not suitable for the following situations:
– Objects are moving
– Objects are too close to the camera
– Image with a repeating pattern such as tiles and image with little contrast such as sky, sandy beach, or
lawn
– Image with constant change such as waves or water falls
• You cannot create panoramic images in the following situations:
– You pan the camera too fast or too slow
– There is too much camera shake

• 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.

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.

stabilize the camera by holding your arms firmly at your side after pressing the shutter button.
• Use [Hand-held Twilight] mode.
Subject blur
Even though the camera is steady, the subject
moves during the exposure so the subject looks
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.
• Shoot in Anti Motion Blur or

Printing
Cannot print an image.
• Refer to the operation manual of the printer.
Images are printed with both edges cut off.
• Depending on your printer, all the edges of the image may be cut off. Especially when you print an
image shot with the image size set to [16:9], the lateral end of the image may be cut off.
• When printing images using your printer, cancel the trimming or borderless settings. Consult the
printer manufacturer as to whether the printer provides these functions or not.
• When having images printed at a digital print shop, ask the shop whether they can print the images
without cutting off both edges.
Cannot print images with the date.
• Using “PMB”, you can print images with date (page 118).
• 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.

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.
Table of
contents
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 (page 71) 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.

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.
• 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.
Compatible battery pack
• The NP-BD1 battery pack (supplied) can be used only in D type compatible Cyber-shot models. It cannot
be used in Cyber-shot models compatible with the T type and other battery types.
• If you use the NP-FD1 battery pack (sold separately), the minutes also appear after the battery remaining
indicator (
60 Min).

• Only D-type, T-type, R-type and E-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.
• The batteries that are compatible with this camera are D type batteries. The supplied battery is NP-BD1
(D type).
• Remove the charged battery pack from the battery charger. If you leave the charged battery pack in the
charger, battery life may be shortened.
• When the CHARGE lamp flashes, remove the battery pack being charged, and then inserting the same
battery pack into the battery charger again until it clicks. When 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 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.
