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.
Metering
Drive mode
If you cannot obtain suitable exposure conditions, you can change the
metering method to take brighter pictures.
You can select continuous shot, and AEB (Auto Exposure Bracketing).
[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.
[Single]
: Take one picture only.
[Wise Shot]
: Two images are taken at a
time. One is taken in the FillIn Flash mode and the other
is taken in the ASR mode.
METERING
Multi
[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 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.
DRIVE
Single
[Continuous]
: Images will be taken continuously until the shutter
button is released.
[AEB]
: Take three pictures in a series in different exposures:
standard exposure (0.0EV), short exposure (-1/3EV)
and over exposure (+1/3EV).
[Motion Capture] : This takes 6 shots per second, and for max 5 seconds,
when the shutter is pressed and held down. The
maximum number of shots is 30 and the image size is
fixed as VGA.
High resolution and picture quality increases file saving time, which
increases stand-by time.
If the [Continuous], [AEB] or [Motion Capture] 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.
If less than 30 pictures are availabe in the memory, the Motion
Capture shooting is not available.
<< 43 >>

ISO
Wise Shot
You can select the ISO sensitivity when taking pictures.
The speed or specific light-sensitivity of a camera is rated by ISO numbers.
2 images are taken at a time. One is taken
in the Fill-In Flash mode and the other is
taken in the ASR mode.
DRIVE
How to use the wise shot

dial and press the Fn button.
Wise Shot
2. Select Drive menu tab by pressing the Up and Down button.
3. Press the Shutter button to capture images.
4. The captured images are saved.
In the Wise shot, the shutter speed value shown on the LCD may
be different from the real shutter speed.

[Auto] : The camera's sensitivity is
automatically changed by variables
such as lighting value or subject
brightness.
ISO
Auto
[ISO 80, 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600 ] :
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 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.
White balance
The white balance control allows you to adjust the colours to appear
more natural.
[Auto WB]
: The camera
automatically selects
the appropriate white
balance settings,
depending on the
prevailing lighting
conditions.
WHITE BALANCE
Auto WB
[Daylight]
: For taking images outside.
[Cloudy]
: For taking images under a cloudy and overcast
sky.
[Fluorescent_H]
: For shooting under daylight fluorescent types of
three-way fluorescent lighting.
[Fluorescent_L]
: Shooting under white fluorescent lighting.
[Tungsten]
: For shooting under tungsten (standard light bulb)

[Custom Set]
: Allows the user to set the white balance
according to the shooting condition.
Using the Custom White Balance
White balance settings may vary slightly depending on the shooting
environment. You can select the most appropriate white balance
setting for a given shooting environment by setting up the custom white
balance.
1. Select the CUSTOM (

DPOF
DPOF(Digital Print Order Format) allows you to embed printing
information on your memory card’s MISC folder. Select the pictures to
be printed and how many prints to make.
The DPOF indicator will display on the LCD monitor when an image
that has DPOF information plays back. Images can then be printed on
DPOF printers, or at an increasing number of photo labs.
This function is not available for Movie clips and Voice recording files.
When the wide angle image is printed as a wide angle print, 8% of the
left and right side of the image may not be printed. Check that your
printer can support the wide angle image when you print the image.
When you print the image at a photo lab, request that the image is
printed as a wide angle image. (Some photo labs may not support the
wide angle size print.)
Of all the files stored in the memory card, the unprotected files in the DCIM subfolder
will be deleted. Remember that this will permanently delete unprotected images.
Important shots should be stored on a computer before deletion takes place. The
startup image is stored in the camera's internal memory (i.e., not on the memory card)
and it will not be deleted even if you delete all files on the memory card.

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 mothballs), 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.
- 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.
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.
- Take care not to get fingerprints or foreign substances on the surface
of the lens.
- 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.
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.
Handling the camera
If the camera is exposed to an electronic interference, it will turn itself off to
protect the memory card.
- 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.
<< 87 >>
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, 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.
