NOTE:
• Scene complexity affects a picture’s file size. For example, a picture of trees in
autumn has a larger file size than a picture of blue sky at the same resolution
and quality setting. Therefore, the number of pictures you can store on a card
may vary. The number of pictures on the LCD screen is for reference only.
• The 2272 X 1704 resolution is interpolated by firmware, while the maximum
resolution of the sensor itself is only 2048 X 1536. Interpolation refers to
the process of averaging pixel information when scaling an image. Used in
digital cameras to produce an image resolution greater than the resolution
of the device’s CCD array. Basically, an integrated circuit chip in the digital
camera generates new data by taking the dots the digital camera actually
sees, and calculating where the dots in-between would most likely fall, using
an algorithm to “guess” the colour of the new dots by averaging the colour of
adjacent dots.
• Please notice that if the interpolated resolution 2272 X 1704 has been
selected, the camera will automaticaly reset to 2048 X 1536 when it is turned
off.

6 Using the SD Card
• Using the SD (Secure Digital) Card
Your camera comes with approximately 16MB of built-in flash memory for
storing pictures and video clip. You can expand the camera memory using
a commercially available SD card (up to 256MB). The camera senses
whether a memory card is inserted, and automatically saves pictures
accordingly. Note that you cannot save pictures to built-in flash memory
while a memory card is installed in the camera. Also if you took pictures
before you insert the SD card, those images cannot be viewed while the
SD card is in the camera unless you copy the images to the SD card (see
page 36).
IMPORTANT!
• Make sure you turn off the camera before inserting or removing a memory
card.
• Be sure to orient the card correctly when inserting it. Never try to force a
memory card into the slot when you feel resistance.
• SD memory cards have a write protect switch, which you can use to protect
against accidental deletion of picture data. “Whenever you want to record,
format or delete item in the SD Card, you must disable write protection.”
Inserting the SD (Secure Digital) card
Turn off the camera and open the SD card door as illustrated. Insert the
SD card, ensuring the card is inserted the correct position as illustrated.
Close the SD card door.

Removing the SD (Secure Digital) card
To remove the SD card, turn off camera, open the SD card door, then
gently push the SD card inwards to eject it from the SD card slot as
illustrated.
IMPORTANT!
• Never insert any other objects besides a SD memory card into the camera’s card
slot. Doing so creates the risk of damaging the camera and card.
• Make sure that the terminal of the memory card is facing towards the front of
the camera.
• Should water or any foreign objects ever get into the card slot, immediately
turn off the camera, remove the batteries or disconnect the AC adaptor, and
contact your dealer or nearest service provider.

IMPORTANT!
• You can format a memory card on the camera or on a computer. However
formatting a memory card on a computer takes much longer.
• Note that data deleted by a format operation cannot be recovered. Make sure you do
not have any useful data currently stored on a memory card before you format it.
• Formatting a memory card destroys all the pictures/video clips, even those are
protected.
After the memory card is formatted, a message “NO IMAGE” appears on
the LCD screen.

Memory Card Precautions
1. Use only a SD memory card with this camera. Proper operation is not
guaranteed when any other type of card is used.
2. Electrostatic charge, electrical noise, and other phenomena can cause
data corruption or even loss. Always make sure that you always back up
important data on other media (MO disc, computer hard drive, etc.).
3. If a memory card starts to behave abnormally, you can restore normal
operation by reformatting it. However, we recommend that you
always take along more than one memory card whenever using the
camera far away from the home or office.
4. We recommend that you format a memory card before using it for the
first time after purchasing it, or whenever the card you are using seems
to be the cause of abnormal pictures. Remember to format a memory
card if it was used in another digital camera or other devices.

• DPOF (Digital Print Order Format)
The letters ”DPOF” stand for “Digital Print Order Format”, which is a
format for recording on a memory card or other medium which digital
camera images should be printed and how many copies of the image
should be printed. Then you can print on a DPOF-compatible printer or at
a professional print service from the memory card in accordance with the
file name and number of copies settings recorded on the card.
With this camera, you should always select images by viewing them on
the LCD screen. Do not specify images by file name without viewing the
file contents.

• P.I.M. (PRINT Image Matching)
This camera supports PRINT Image Matching. Images recorded with it
include information about the mode setting, camera setup, etc. When
you print an image on a printer that supports PRINT Image Matching, the
printer reads this data and adjust the printed image accordingly, so your
image comes out just the way you intended when you recorded them.
See the documentation that came with your printer for full details about
PRINT Image Matching.
Now your digital camera and your printer can speak the same language.
PRINT Image Matching technology ensures that PRINT Image Matchingenabled digital cameras and printers work together perfectly to produce
the best possible prints. Through this innovative technology, the printer
is able to instantly identify the print specific information for each image
captured, to provide superior colour, quality and detail in every print.
For more detailed information, please go to the PRINT Image Matching
website http://www.printimagematching.com.

NOTE:
• Scene complexity affects a picture’s file size. For example, a picture of trees in
autumn has a larger file size than a picture of blue sky at the same resolution
and quality setting. Therefore, the number of pictures you can store on a card
may vary. The number of pictures on the LCD screen is for reference only.
• The 2272X1704 resolution is interpolated by firmware.
