Instructions on how to use the power source
You can use batteries only to provide the camera with power.
Using the batteries
We recommend using batteries for a digital camera (Within a year from the date of
manufacture). The batteries are listed below.
Non rechargeable batteries : AA type
- Alkaline, Ni-Mn, Ni-Zn, Lithium
CR-V3 type - Lithium
Rechargeable batteries
: AA type
- Ni-MH(Samsung SNB-2312 recommended),
Ni-Cd (over 1000mAh)
CR-V3 type - Samsung SBP-1303(Lithium Ion battery)
It is easy to buy alkaline batteries. However, the duration for using batteries varies in
accordance with the battery manufacturer or the photographic conditions.
When the camera is not used, turn off the camera power.
Do not recharge the non rechargeable batteries. It may cause an explosion.
Please remove the batteries if the camera will not be used for long periods. Batteries can lose
power over time and are prone to leaking if kept inside the camera.
We recommend high capacity ALKALINE batteries as manganese batteries cannot deliver
sufficient power.
Low temperatures (below 0°C) can affect the performance of the batteries and you may
experience reduced battery life.
Batteries will usually recover at normal temperatures.
Do not use old and new batteries at the same time.
During extended use of the camera, the camera body may become warm.
This is perfectly normal.

Should this happen, clean the memory card with a soft cloth.
Please keep the memory card in its case when not in use.
During and after periods of extended use, you may notice that the memory card is warm.
This is perfectly normal.
Do not use a memory card that is used in another digital camera.
To use the memory card in this camera, format first the memory card by using this camera.
Do not use a memory card formatted by another digital camera or memory card reader.
Preserving the memory card data
If the memory card is subjected to any of the following, the recorded data may become
corrupted :
- When the memory card is used incorrectly.
- If the power is switched off or the memory card is removed while recording, deleting

flash(p.27), Spot metering(p.40) or Exposure compensation(p.33).
Avoid obstructing the lens or the flash when you capture an image.
Under certain conditions the auto focus system may not perform as expected.
- When photographing a subject that has little contrast.
- If the subject is highly reflective or shiny.
- If the subject is moving at high speed.
- When there is strong reflected light, or when the background is very bright.
- When the subject matter has only horizontal lines or the subject is very narrow
(such as a stick or flagpole).
- When the surroundings are dark.

Important notes
Be sure to observe the following precautions!
This unit contains precision electronic components. Do not use or store this unit in the
following locations.
- Areas exposed to severe changes in temperature and humidity.
- Areas exposed to dust and dirt.
- Areas exposed to direct sunlight or the inside of a vehicle in hot weather.
- Environments where there is high magnetism or excessive vibration.
- Areas with high explosives or highly flammable materials.
Do not leave this camera in places subject to dust, chemicals (like naphthalene and
mothball), high temperature and high humidity.
Keep this camera with silica gel in a hermetically sealed box when not planning to use the
camera for a long period of time
Sand can be particularly troublesome to cameras.
- Do not let sand get inside the unit when using it on beaches, coastal dunes, or other areas
where there is lots of sand.
- Doing so may result in failure or may permanently render the unit unusable.
Extremes in temperature may cause problems.
- If the camera is transferred from a cold to a warm and humid environment, condensation
can form on the delicate electronic circuitry. If this occurs, turn the camera off and wait for at
least 1 hour until all moisture is dispersed. Moisture build up can also occur in the memory
card. If this happens, turn off the camera and remove the memory card. Wait until the
moisture has dispersed.
Caution on Using the Lens
- If the lens is subjected to direct sunlight, it could result in discoloration and deterioration of
the image sensor.
- Pay attention not to get fingerprints or foreign substances on the surface of the lens.
If the digital camera is not used for a long period, an electric discharge can occur.
It is a good idea to remove the batteries and the memory card if you do not intend using the
camera for an extended period of time.
81
Important notes
If the camera is exposed to an electronic interference, it will turn itself off to protect the
memory card.
Camera Maintenance
- Use a soft brush (available from photo stores) to gently clean the lens and LCD assemblies.
If this does not work, lens-cleaning paper with lens cleaning fluid can be used.
Clean the camera body with a soft cloth. Do not allow this camera to come into contact with
solvent materials such as benzol, insecticide, thinners etc. This may damage the body shell
of the camera and also affect its performance. Rough handling can damage the LCD
monitor. Take care to avoid damage and keep the camera in its protective carry case at all
times when not in use.
Do not attempt to disassemble or modify the camera.
Under certain conditions, static electricity can cause the flash unit to fire. This is not harmful to
the camera and is not a malfunction.
When images are uploaded or downloaded, the data transfer may be affected by static
electricity. In this case, disconnect and re-connect the USB cable before trying the transfer
again.
