- 50, 100, 200, 400

: You can increase the shutter speed while the same amount of light is present, by increasing the ISO sensitivity. However, the image may be saturated in high luminance. The higher the ISO value, the higher the camera’s sensitivity to light is and therefore the greater its capacity to take pictures in dark conditions. However, the noise level in the image will increase as the ISO value increases, making the image appear coarse.

INFORMATION

● The TIFF file can’t be rotated, resized and trimmed.

● The TIFF file format is for advanced users and provides the best quality.

However, large file size reduces number of available pictures to take and increases saving time to the memory card.

● A [Processing!] message is displayed while saving a TIFF file to the memory card.

● The TIFF file format can't be selected in the Motion Capture mode.

● This file format complies with the DCF (Design rule for Camera File system).

● JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) : JPEG is the image compression standard developed by the Joint Photographic Experts Group.

This type of compression is most commonly used for compressing photos and graphics because it can compress the files efficiently.

《36》

Metering

■ If you cannot obtain suitable exposure conditions, you can change the metering method to take brighter pictures.

[Multi] : Exposure will be calculated based on an average of the available light in the image area. However, the calculation will be biased towards the centre of the image area. This is suitable for general use.

[Spot] : Only the rectangular area in the centre of the LCD monitor will be metered for light.

This is suitable when the subject in the

METERING

Multi

Spot

[ PROGRAM mode ] centre is exposed correctly, regardless of the back lighting.

※ If the subject is not the centre of the focus area, do not use the spot metering as this may result in an exposure error. In this circumstance, it is better to use exposure compensation.

Auto Focus type

■ You can select your preferred Auto Focus type according to the shooting condition.

- [Multi AF] : This camera selects a AF point from the 5 AF points.

- [Center AF] : The rectangular area in the center of the LCD monitor will be focused

※ When the camera focuses on the subject, the auto focus frame turns too green. When the camera doesn’t focus on the subject, the auto focus frame turns to red.

Continuous shot

■ You can select continuous shot, and AEB (Auto

Exposure Bracketing).

- [Single] : Take one picture only

- [Continuous] : Images will be taken continuously until the shutter button is released.

: Take three pictures in a series in [ PROGRAM mode ] different exposures: short exposure

※ High resolution and picture quality increases file saving time, which increases stand-by time.

※ If the [Continuous] or [AEB] sub menu is selected, the flash will be off automatically.

※ If less than 3 pictures are available in the memory, the AEB shooting is not available.

※ It is best to use a tripod for the AEB shooting as the time to save each image file is longer and blurring caused by camera shake may occur.

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 camera 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 camera unusable.

■Handling the camera

- Never drop the camera or subject it to severe shocks or vibrations.

- Protect the large size LCD monitor from an impact. When this camera is not used, keep it in the camera case.

- Avoid obstructing the lens or the flash when you capture an image.

- This camera is not waterproof.

To avoid dangerous electrical shocks, never hold or operate the camera with wet hands.

- If you use this camera in wet places, such as beach or pool, do not let water or sand get inside the camera. Doing so may result in failure or may permanently damage the unit.

《66》

■ 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 built up can also occur on 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 the 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 battery and the memory card if you do not intend using the camera for an extended period of time.

■ If the camera is exposed to an electronic interference, it will turn itself off to protect the memory card.

Important notes

■ 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 (when the charger and USB cable are inserted into the cradle (optional) at the same time), the data transfer may be affected by static electricity.

In this case, disconnect and re-connect the USB cable before trying the transfer again.

■ Before an important event or going on a trip, you should check the camera condition.

- Take a picture for testing the camera condition and prepare extra battery.

- Samsung cannot be held responsible for camera malfunctions.
