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 145.
• 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.

Notes on using the camera
• 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.
On moisture condensation
• If the camera is brought directly from a cold to a

battery pack and the memory card, then leave
the camera in a dry place with the battery/
memory card cover open until the moisture
evaporates. Note that if you attempt to shoot

• 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 (1 ft 7 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 59).
• 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
• 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 faster 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 or the shooting may not be successful.
• 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 AE/AF locked angle are very different in
brightness, color and focus, the shooting will not be successful. If this happens, change AE/AF locked
angle and shoot again.
• Intelligent Sweep Panorama is not suitable for the following situations:
– When objects are too close to the camera
– An image with little contrast such as the sky, a sandy beach, lawn or underwater
– An image with constant change such as waves or waterfalls
– When many objects are moving, such as a school of fish
– When it is difficult to stay still such as underwater
• You cannot create panoramic images in the following situations:
– You pan the camera too fast or too slow
– There is too much camera shake

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.
High ISO sensitivity
Records a bright image even in dark locations while increasing shutter
speed to reduce blur.
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.
z Hints for preventing blur
Even though the camera is steady, the subject moves during the exposure and is captured
blurred when the shutter button is pressed. Camera shake is reduced automatically,
however, the function does not effectively reduce subject blur.
Subject blur occurs frequently under low-light or slow shutter speed conditions. In such a
case, shoot with the below tips in mind.
• Select a higher ISO sensitivity to make the shutter
speed faster, and press the shutter button before the
subject moves.
• Select

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 keep clean battery pack terminal and prevent short-circuiting, place the battery pack in a plastic bag,
etc. when carrying and storing to isolate it from other metal objects, etc.

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.
• 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 pack terminals become dirty, the camera may not turn on, the battery pack may not
charge, or other symptoms may occur. In these cases, gently wipe away any dirt with a soft cloth.
• 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-BN1 battery pack (supplied) can be used only in N type compatible Cyber-shot models.

Search
• Only NP-BN-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 CHARGE lamp on the supplied battery charger has the following two flash patterns.
Fast flash: The lamp repeatedly flashes on and off at approximately 0.15-second intervals.
Slow flash: The lamp repeatedly flashes on and off at approximately 1.5-second intervals.
• 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 insert 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.
• If the CHARGE lamp is flashing slowly, the charger is in standby mode and charging has temporarily
stopped. Charging stops temporarily and standby mode results when the temperature is outside the range
suitable for charging. Charging resumes and the CHARGE lamp lights when the temperature returns to
the range suitable for charging. We recommend charging the battery pack in an ambient temperature of
between 10°C to 30°C (50°F to 86°F).
