disassemble
Do not use the camera in the bathroom or shower. This can cause a fire or electric
shock.
Never attempt to change or take apart the camera. (Never open the casing.) Do not use the
camera when it has been dropped or the casing is damaged. This can cause a fire or
electric shock. Contact your FUJIFILM dealer.

Do not place the camera on an unstable surface. This can cause the camera to fall or
tip over and cause injury.
Never attempt to take pictures while in motion. Do not use the camera while you
are walking or driving a vehicle. This can result in you falling down or being
involved in a traffic accident.
iv
CAUTION
Do not use this camera in locations affected by oil fumes, steam, humidity or dust. This
can cause a fire or electric shock.
Do not leave this camera in places subject to extremely high temperatures. Do not leave
the camera in locations such as a sealed vehicle or in direct sunlight. This
can cause a fire.
Keep out of the reach of small children. This product could cause injury in the
hands of a child.
Do not place heavy objects on the camera. This can cause the heavy object to tip
over or fall and cause injury.
Do not move the camera while the AC power adapter is still connected. Do not pull on the
connection cord to disconnect the AC power adapter. This can damage the power
cord or cables and cause a fire or electric shock.
Do not cover or wrap the camera or the AC power adapter in a cloth or blanket. This can
cause heat to build up and distort the casing or cause a fire.
Do not touch any metal parts of the camera during a thunderstorm. This can cause an
electric shock due to induced current from the lightning discharge.
When you are cleaning the camera or you do not plan to use the camera for an extended
period, remove the batteries and disconnect and unplug the AC power adapter. Failure to
do so can cause a fire or electric shock.
Do not use the batteries except as specified. Load the batteries as shown by the
indicator.
When charging ends, unplug the charger from the power socket. Leaving the charger
plugged into the power socket can cause a fire.
Do not heat, change or take apart the batteries. Do not drop or subject the batteries to
impacts. Do not store the batteries with metallic products. Any of these actions can
cause the batteries to burst or leak and cause fire or injury as a result.
Use only the batteries or AC power adapters specified for use with this camera. Do not use
voltages other than the power supply voltage shown. The use of other power sources
can cause a fire.
If the batteries leak and fluid gets in contact with your eyes, skin or clothing, flush the
affected area with clean water and seek medical attention or call an emergency number
right away.
When carrying the batteries, install them in a digital camera or keep them in the hard case.
When storing the batteries, keep them in the hard case. When discarding, cover the battery
terminals with insulation tape. Contact with other metallic objects or batteries
could cause the batteries to ignite or burst.
Keep memory cards out of the reach of small children. Because memory cards are
small, they can be swallowed by children. Be sure to store memory cards out
of the reach of small children. If a child swallows a memory card, seek medical
attention or call an emergency number.
Using a flash too close to a person’s eyes may temporarily affect the eyesight. Take particular care when photographing infants and young children.
When a memory card is removed, the card could come out of the slot too quickly. Use your
finger to hold it and gently release the card.
Request regular internal testing and cleaning for your camera. Build-up of dust in your
camera can cause a fire or electric shock. Contact your FUJIFILM dealer to
request internal cleaning every two years. Please note that this service is not
free of charge.
Using Batteries
The following describes the proper use of batteries and how to prolong
their life. Incorrect use can shorten battery life or cause leakage, overheating, fire, or explosion.
Compatible Batteries
The camera takes AA alkaline, rechargeable Ni-MH (nickel-metal hydride),
or UL-certified lithium batteries. Do not use manganese, nickel-cadmium
(Ni-Cd), or non-UL certified lithium batteries, as the heat generated by these
batteries could damage the camera or cause malfunction.

• Never use manganese or Ni-Cd batteries.
• The capacity of alkaline batteries varies with the
manufacturer and drops at temperatures below
10 °C/32 °F; Ni-MH batteries are recommended.
• Fingerprints and other soil on the battery terminals can shorten battery life.
3 Cautions
• Do not open the battery-chamber cover when
the camera is on. Failure to observe this precaution could result in damage to image files or

2 Tip: Using an AC Adapter
The camera can be powered by an optional AC
adapter and DC coupler (sold separately).

Inserting a Memory Card
Although the camera can store pictures in internal memory, SD memory cards (sold separately) can be
used to store additional pictures.
When no memory card is inserted, a appears in the monitor and internal memory is used for recording
and playback. Note that because camera malfunction could cause internal memory to become corrupted, the pictures in internal memory should periodically be transferred to a computer and saved on
the computer hard disk or on removable media such as CDs or DVDs. The pictures in internal memory
can also be copied to a memory card (see page 87). To prevent internal memory from becoming full,
be sure to delete pictures when they are no longer needed.
When a memory card is inserted as described below, the card will be used for recording and playback.
■ Compatible Memory Cards
SanDisk SD and SDHC memory cards have been approved for use in the camera. A complete list
of approved memory cards is available at http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital_cameras/index.html.
Operation is not guaranteed with other cards. The camera can not be used with xD-Picture Cards or
MultiMediaCard (MMC) devices.
3 Caution
Memory cards can be locked, making it impossible to format the card or to record or delete
images. Before inserting a memory card, slide the write-protect switch to the unlocked position.

11
Inserting a Memory Card
3 Cautions
• Do not turn the camera off or remove the memory card while the memory card is being formatted or data are being recorded to or
deleted from the card. Failure to observe this precaution could damage the card.
• Format memory cards before first use, and be sure to reformat all memory cards after using them in a computer
or other device. For more information on formatting memory cards, see page 98.
• Memory cards are small and can be swallowed; keep out of reach of children. If a child swallows a memory card,
seek medical assistance immediately.
• miniSD or microSD adapters that are larger or smaller than the standard dimensions of an SD card may not eject
normally; if the card does not eject, take the camera to an authorized service representative. Do not forcibly
remove the card.
• Do not affix labels to memory cards. Peeling labels can cause camera malfunction.
• Movie recording may be interrupted with some types of memory card. Use a card with a class 4 write speed
(4 MB/s) or better when shooting HD movies.
• The data in internal memory may be erased or corrupted when the camera is repaired. Please note that the
repairer will be able to view pictures in internal memory.
• Formatting a memory card or internal memory in the camera creates a folder in which pictures are stored. Do
not rename or delete this folder or use a computer or other device to edit, delete, or rename image files. Always
use the camera to delete pictures from memory cards and internal memory; before editing or renaming files,
copy them to a computer and edit or rename the copies, not the originals.

• Use only memory cards that have been formatted
in the camera and contain pictures taken with the
camera. If a memory card containing a large number of images is inserted, there may be a delay before
FinePixViewer starts and FinePixViewer may be unable to import or save images. Use a memory card
reader to transfer pictures.
• Make sure the indicator lamp is out before turning the
camera off or disconnecting the USB cable. Failure to
observe this precaution could result in loss of data or
damage to internal memory or the memory card.
• Disconnect the camera before inserting or removing
memory cards.
• Use FinePixViewer to copy voice memos.
• In some cases, it may not be possible to access pictures saved to a network server using FinePixViewer
in the same way as on a standalone computer.
• The user bears all applicable fees charged by the
phone company or Internet service provider when
using services that require an Internet connection.

Caring for the Camera
To ensure continued enjoyment of the product, observe the following precautions.
■ Water and Sand
Exposure to water and sand can also damage the
camera and its internal circuitry and mechanisms.
When using the camera at the beach or seaside,
avoid exposing the camera to water or sand. Do
not place the camera on a wet surface.
■ Condensation
Sudden increases in temperature, such as occur
when entering a heated building on a cold day,
can cause condensation inside the camera. If this
occurs, turn the camera off and wait an hour before turning it on again. If condensation forms on
the memory card, remove the card and wait for
the condensation to dissipate.
Cleaning
Use a blower to remove dust from the lens and
monitor, then gently wipe with a soft, dry cloth.
Any remaining stains can be removed by wiping
gently with a piece of FUJIFILM lens-cleaning paper to which a small amount of lens-cleaning fluid
has been applied. Care should be taken to avoid
scratching the lens or monitor. The camera body
can be cleaned with a soft, dry cloth. Do not use
alcohol, thinner, or other volatile chemicals.
Technical Notes
Storage and Use
If the camera will not be used for an extended period, remove the battery and memory card. Do
not store or use the camera in locations that are:
• exposed to rain, steam, or smoke
• very humid or extremely dusty
• exposed to direct sunlight or very high temperatures, such as in a closed vehicle on a sunny day
• extremely cold
• subject to strong vibration
• exposed to strong magnetic fields, such as near
a broadcasting antenna, power line, radar emitter, motor, transformer, or magnet
• in contact with volatile chemicals such as pesticides
• next to rubber or vinyl products

Glossary
Digital zoom: Unlike optical zoom, digital zoom does not increase the amount of visible detail. Instead, details visible using optical zoom are simply enlarged, producing a slightly “grainy” image.
DPOF (Digital Print Order Format): A standard that allows pictures to be printed from “print orders” stored
in internal memory or on a memory card. The information in the order includes the pictures to be printed
and the number of copies of each picture.
EV (Exposure Value): The exposure value is determined by the sensitivity of the image sensor and the amount
of light that enters the camera while the image sensor is exposed. Each time the amount of light doubles, EV
increases by one; each time the amount of light is halved, EV decreases by one. The amount of light entering the
camera can be controlled by adjusting aperture and shutter speed.
Exif Print: A standard for storing information with pictures for optimal color reproduction during printing.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface): An interface standard for the transmission of images and sound that
adds audio input to the DVI interface used to connect computers to displays.
JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group): A compressed file format for color images. The higher the compression
rate, the greater the loss of information and more noticeable drop in quality when the picture is displayed.
Motion JPEG: An AVI (Audio Video Interleave) format that stores sound and JPEG images in a single file. Motion JPEG
files can be played in Windows Media Player (requires DirectX 8.0 or later) or QuickTime 3.0 or later.
Smear: A phenomenon specific to CCDs which causes white streaks to appear when very bright light sources, such
as the sun or reflected sunlight, appear in the frame.
White balance: The human brain automatically adapts to changes in the color of light, with the result that objects
that appear white under one light source still appear white when the color of the light source changes. Digital
cameras can mimic this adjustment by processing images according to the color of the light source. This process
is known as “white balance.”
Appendix
WAV (Waveform Audio Format): A standard Windows audio file format. WAV files have the extension “*.WAV” and
may be compressed or uncompressed. The camera uses uncompressed WAV. WAV files can be played using
Windows Media Player or QuickTime 3.0 or later.
115
Internal Memory/Memory Card Capacity
The following table shows the recording time or number of pictures available at different image qualities. All figures are approximate; file size varies with the scene recorded, producing wide variations in
the number of files that can be stored. The number of exposures or length remaining may not diminish
at an even rate.

Notices
• Specifications subject to change without notice. FUJIFILM shall not be held liable for damages resulting from
errors in this manual.
• Although the monitor is manufactured using advanced high-precision technology, small bright points and
anomalous colors (particularly in the vicinity of text) may appear. This is normal for this type of monitor and
does not indicate a malfunction; images recorded with the camera are unaffected.
• Digital cameras may malfunction when exposed to strong radio interference (e.g., electric fields, static electricity, or line noise).
• Due to the type of lens used, some distortion may occur at the periphery of images. This is normal.
