◆ Notes on Handling Batteries ◆
h Do not use different types of batteries or old
and new batteries together.
h The operating lives of alkaline batteries vary
between brands and the life of the batteries
may be shorter than the alkaline batteries
provided with the camera. Note also that due to
the nature of alkaline batteries, the time for
which they can be used is shorter in cold
locations (at temperatures of +10°C or below),
so the use of Ni-MH batteries is recommended.
h Soiling (fingerprints, etc) on the terminals of
batteries can greatly reduce the time for
which the batteries provide power.
h You will need the optional battery charger
(➡P.75) to recharge Ni-MH batteries.
h See P.78 for notes on using batteries.
1Slide the battery cover out and lift it open.
2Insert the batteries correctly as indicated by the
polarity icons.
3Close the battery cover.
! Do not apply excessive force to the battery cover.
●
! Take care not to drop the batteries when you open or
●
close the battery cover.
! The settings are retained for approximately 60 minutes after
●
the batteries are removed. To keep the current settings,
ensure that the new batteries are fitted within 60 minutes.
! You should carry a spare set of batteries (sold
●
separately) when taking pictures.

◆ Red-Eye Effect ◆
When you use the flash to photograph people in low-light conditions, their eyes sometimes appear red in
the picture. This is caused by the light of the flash reflecting off the inside of the eye. Use Red-Eye
Reduction flash to effectively minimize the likelihood of the red-eye effect.
Take the following measures also to make Red-Eye Reduction more effective :
●
Get the subjects to look at the camera.
●
Get as close as possible to the subjects.

short time before using it again.
■ When the Camera is Unused for Long Periods
If you do not intend to use the camera for a long period, of
time remove the batteries and the SmartMedia card before
storing the camera.
■ Cleaning Your Camera
h Use a blower brush to remove dust from the lens, LCD
monitor screen or viewfinder as these surfaces, and then
wipe lightly with a soft, dry cloth. If any soiling remains,

FUJIFILM lens cleaning paper and wipe gently.
h Do not scratch hard objects against the lens, LCD
monitor screen or viewfinder as these surfaces are easily
damaged.
h Clean the body of the camera with a soft, dry cloth. Do
not use volatile substances such as thinners, benzine or
insecticide, as these may react with camera body and
cause deformation or remove the coating.
■ Using the Camera Overseas
When travelling overseas, do not place your camera in the
check-in baggage. Baggage handling at airports may
subject baggage to violent shocks, and the camera may be
damaged internally even when no external damage is
visible.
77
Notes on the Power Supply
Applicable Batteries
h AA-size alkaline, Ni-MH (nickel-metal hydride) can be
used with this camera.
Do not use AA-size manganese, lithium batteries in your
FinePix2800 ZOOM because the heat generated by the
batteries could damage the camera or cause
malfunctions.
h The operating lives of alkaline batteries vary between
brands and the life of batteries you purchase may be
shorter than the alkaline batteries provided with the
camera.
Notes on the Batteries
78
Incorrect use of the batteries could cause them to leak,
become hot, ignite or burst. Always observe the
precautions given below.
h Do not heat the batteries or throw them into a fire.
h Do not carry or store the batteries with metal objects
such as necklaces or hairpins that could come into
contact with the metal positive = and negative - poles
of the battery.
h Do not expose the batteries to fresh or sea water, and
take particular care to keep the terminals dry.
h Do not attempt to deform, disassemble or modify the
batteries.
h Do not attempt to peel off or cut the battery casing.
h Do not drop, strike or otherwise subject the batteries to
strong impacts.
h Do not use the batteries that are leaking, deformed,
discolored or exhibit any other obvious abnormality.
h Do not store the batteries in very warm or moist locations.
h Keep the batteries out of reach of infant and young
children.
h When loading the batteries into the camera, ensure that the
battery polarity (= and - ) is as indicated on the camera.
h Do not use new batteries together with used batteries. In
the case of rechargeable batteries, do not use charged
and discharged batteries together. Do not use batteries
of different types or brands together.
h If you do not intend to use the camera for a long period of
time, remove the batteries from the camera. (Note that if
the camera is left with the batteries removed, the time
and date settings are cleared.)
h The batteries may feel warm immediately after being
used. Before removing the batteries, switch the camera
off and wait until the batteries cool down.
h When replacing the batteries, always fit 4 new batteries.
Here, 'new batteries' refers to either recently purchased
unused alkaline batteries, or Ni-MH (nickel metal hydride)
batteries that have recently been fully recharged together.
h In cold locations (at temperatures of +10°C/+50°F or below),
battery performance deteriorates and the time for which they
can be used shortens markedly. This is particularly true of
alkaline batteries. In cold conditions, put the batteries in your
pocket or a similar place to warm them before loading them
into the camera. If you use a body warmer to warm the
batteries, ensure that they are not in direct contact with the
warmer.
h Soil (such as fingerprints) on the battery terminals can
markedly reduce the number of available shots. Carefully
wipe the battery terminals clean with a soft dry cloth before
loading the batteries.
If any liquid at all leaks from the batteries, wipe the battery
compartment thoroughly and then load new batteries.
If any battery fluid comes into contact with your hands or
clothing, flush the area thoroughly with water. Note that
battery fluid can cause loss of eyesight if it gets into your
eyes. If this occurs, do not rub your eyes. Flush the fluid out
with clean water and contact your physician for treatment.
■ Disposing of Batteries
When disposing of batteries, do so in accordance with your
local waste disposal regulations.
■ Notes on Small Rechargeable Batteries (Ni-MH
batteries)
h Always use the special battery charger to charge AA-size
Ni-MH batteries. Charge the batteries as described in the
instructions provided with the battery charger.
h Do not use the battery charger to charge batteries other
than those specified for use with the charger.
h Note that the batteries may feel warm immediately after
being charged.
h Ni-MH batteries are not charged at shipment. Be sure to
charge the batteries before using them.
h The camera mechanism is such that it draws a minute
amount of current even when the camera is switched off.
Take particular care not to leave Ni-MH batteries in the
camera for a long period of time as they can become
excessively discharged and may no longer be usable
even when charged.
h Ni-MH batteries self-discharge even when not used.
Always charge Ni-MH batteries before using them. If the
time for which a battery provides power shortens
markedly when it has been correctly charged, this
indicates that the battery has reached the end of its
effective life and should be replaced.
h Soiling (fingerprints, etc) on the terminals of Ni-MH
batteries can greatly reduce the number of available
shots. When this occurs, clean the terminals carefully
with a soft dry cloth. Then use up the remaining charge in
the batteries and recharge them.
h Newly purchased batteries or batteries that have been
left unused for an extended period may not be fully
charged. (This is indicated by the immediate display of
the battery low warning or a low number of available
shots.) This is a normal characteristic of the batteries and
does not indicate a fault. Repeatedly charging and using
the batteries 3 or 4 times will restore them to a normal
condition.
h If you repeatedly charge a Ni-MH battery before it is fully
discharged, it will suffer from the "memory effect"*,
causing the battery low warning to appear while there is
still ample charge remaining in the battery. To restore the
batteries to their normal condition, use up all the charge
in the batteries before recharging them.
✽ Memory effect: A phenomenon affecting the battery
characteristics such that the apparent
battery capacity decreases.

Notes on the Power Supply
Notes on Using the AC Power Adapter
Always use the AC-5VH/AC-5VHS AC Power Adapter with
the FinePix2800 ZOOM Camera.
The use of an AC power adapter other than the AC-5VH/
AC-5VHS could result in damage to your FinePix2800
ZOOM Digital Camera.
h This AC power adapter is designed exclusively for indoor
use.
h Plug the connection cord plug securely into the DC input
terminal of the FUJIFILM Digital camera.
h Turn off the power switch of the FUJIFILM Digital camera
before disconnecting the connection cord from the
FUJIFILM Digital camera’s DC input terminal. To
disconnect, take hold of the plug and pull it out (do not
disconnect it by pulling on the cord).
h Do not use this AC power adapter with any device except
the specified device.
h During use, this AC power adapter will become hot to
touch, but this is normal.
h Do not disassemble the AC power adapter. Doing so
could be dangerous.
h Do not use this device in a place with high temperature
and high humidity.
h Do not drop or subject this device to strong shocks.
h This device may emit a humming noise, but this is
normal.
h If used near a radio, this device may cause static, so play
the radio in a distant place.

■SmartMedia
The SmartMedia card supplied with your FinePix2800
ZOOM camera is a new image recording medium
developed especially for use in digital cameras. Each
SmartMedia card contains a built-in semiconductor
memory chip (NAND flash memory) which is used for
storing digital image data.
Because the data is stored electronically, the stored
image data can be erased from the card and new data
recorded.
■SmartMedia with IDs
The SmartMedia ID is a SmartMedia that has an
individually assigned identification number. SmartMedia
ID cards can be used with devices that use ID numbers
for copyright protection or other purposes. This camera
accepts SmartMedia ID cards in the same way as
conventional SmartMedia cards.
■Storing Data
In the situations listed below, recorded data may be
erased (destroyed). Please note that Fuji Photo Film
Co., Ltd. accepts no responsibility whatsoever for the
loss (destruction) of recorded data.
✽ When the SmartMedia is used incorrectly by the
owner or a third party
✽ When the SmartMedia is exposed to static electricity
or electrical noise
✽ When the SmartMedia cover is opened or the
SmartMedia removed, or when the camera is
switched off during data recording, during data
erasing/formatting, or during frame advance when
images are being played back.
Back up important data onto another medium.
(MO disk, floppy disk, hard disk, etc.)
■Notes on Handling SmartMedia
h Take care to hold the SmartMedia straight when you
load it into your camera.
h Never remove the SmartMedia or switch the camera
off during data recording, during data erasing
(SmartMedia formatting) or during frame advance
when images are being played back. These actions
could result in damage to the SmartMedia.
h Use only the SmartMedia specified for use with the
FinePix2800 ZOOM. The use of other SmartMedia
could damage the camera.
h SmartMedia are precision electronic devices. Do not
bend, drop, or subject SmartMedia to excessive
shocks.
h Do not use or store SmartMedia in environments
likely to be affected by strong static electricity or
electrical noise.
h Do not use or store SmartMedia in very hot, humid or
corrosive environments.
h Take care not to touch the SmartMedia’s contact area
or allow the area to become soiled. Use a dry lint-free
cloth to wipe away any soiling that does occur.
h To avoid damage caused by static electricity, always
use the special static-free case provided during
transportation or storage, or keep the SmartMedia in
a storage case if available.

Warning Displays
Notes on the SmartMedia™
h Do not carry SmartMedia in locations such as a
trouser pocket. This could subject the SmartMedia to
excessive force when you sit down, thereby
damaging the SmartMedia.
h The SmartMedia may feel warm when it is removed
from the camera after extended periods of picture
taking or image viewing. This is normal and does not
indicate a fault.
h Inserting a SmartMedia that is charged with static
electricity into your camera may result in a camera
malfunction. If this occurs, switch the camera off and
then on again.
h Affix the label onto the designated area of the card.
Do not use third-party labels as this can lead to
problems when the card is inserted or removed.
h When you attach the label, take care that it does not
cover any of the write-protect area.
■Notes on Using SmartMedia with a PC
82
h If you intend to take photos using a SmartMedia that
has been used on a PC, format the SmartMedia on
your camera.
h When you format a SmartMedia in the camera and
then shoot and record images, a directory (folder) is
automatically created. Image data is then recorded in
this directory.
h Do not change or delete the directory (folder) names
or file names on the SmartMedia from your PC as this
will make it impossible to use the SmartMedia in your
camera.
h Always use the camera to erase image data on a
SmartMedia.
h To edit image data, copy the image data to the PC’s
hard disk and then edit the copied data.
Be sure to use your PC’s disk eject function
(right-click the removable disk icon in the “My
Computer” window and then click “Eject”) when
you eject a SmartMedia from the PC card reader
or PC card adapter.
When you are using a USB connection, you
should also select and left-click the eject button
for “USB disc/mass storage” in the taskbar.
If you do not use the correct eject procedure,
the SmartMedia may be damaged due to writebehind caching.

Explanation of Terms
DPOF: Digital Print Order Format
DPOF is a format used for recording information on a storage media (image memory card, etc.) that allows
you to specify which of the frames shot using a digital camera are printed and how many prints are made of
each image.
EV:
A number that denotes exposure. The EV is determined by the brightness of the subject and sensitivity (speed) of
the film or CCD. The number is larger for bright subjects and smaller for dark subjects. As the brightness of the
subject changes, a digital camera maintains the amount of light hitting the CCD at a constant level by adjusting
the aperture and shutter speed. When the amount of light striking the CCD doubles, the EV increases by 1.
Likewise, when the light is halved, the EV decreases by 1.
JPEG:
Joint Photographics Experts Group
A file format used for compressing and saving color images. The compression ratio can be selected, but the higher the
compression ratio, the poorer the quality of the expanded image.
Motion JPEG:
A type of AVI (Audio Video Interleave) file format that handles images and sound as a single file. Images in
the file are recorded in JPEG format. Motion JPEG can be played back by QuickTime 3.0 or later.
PC Card:
A generic term for cards that meet the PC Card Standard.
PC Card Standard:
A standard for PC cards determined by the PCMCIA.
PCMCIA:
Personal Computer Memory Card International Association (US).
White Balance:
Whatever the kind of the light, the human eye adapts to it so that a white object still looks white. On the other
hand, devices such as digital cameras see a white subject as white by first adjusting the color balance to suit
the color of the ambient light around the subject. This adjustment is called matching the white balance. A
function that automatically matches the white balance is called an Automatic White Balance function.
