Metering
Q 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 centre is exposed correctly, regardless of the back lighting.
- CENTER : 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 taking a picture
of small object like a flower or insects.
Ú 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.
30
Continuous shot
Q You can select the type of shooting and the number of continuous shots.
- SINGLE : Take one picture only.
- CONTINUOUS : Images will be taken
continuously until the shutter button is released.
The shooting capacity depends on the memory.
- M. CAPTURE : This takes 6 shots per second,
when the shutter is pressed. After completing
the continuous shooting, images are saved.
The maximum number of shots is 30 and the image size is fixed as VGA
quality.
- AEB : Take three pictures in a series in different exposures: standard
exposure (0.0EV), short exposure (-0.5EV), and over exposure (+0.5EV).
Use this mode if it is hard to decide exposure of the object.
- Wise shot: Wise shot can be set in the shooting menus of the ASR mode.
Refer to p.17 for more information.
Ú High resolution and picture quality increases file saving time, which
increases stand-by time.
ÚIf the [CONTINUOUS], [M. CAPTURE] or [AEB] sub menu is selected, the
flash is switched off automatically.
Ú 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.
Ú If less than 3 pictures are available in the memory, the AEB shooting is not
available.
Ú If the [Continuous], [M Capture], [Wise shot] menu is selected, you can not
add voice memo.

Important notes
Be sure to observe the following precautions!
Q 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.
Q Do not leave this camera in places subject to dust, chemicals (like
naphthalene and mothball), high temperature and high humidity. Keep this
camera in a hermetically sealed box with silica gel when not planning to use
it for a long period.
Q Sand can be particularly troublesome to cameras.
- Do not let sand get inside the unit 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 unit
unusable.
Q Handling the camera
- Never drop the camera or subject it to severe shocks or vibrations.
- Protect the large size LCD monitor from impact. When this camera is not
used, keep this camera in the camera case.
- 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.
Q 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 build up can also occur in the memory card. If this
happens, turn off the camera and remove the memory card. Wait until the
moisture has dispersed.
Q Caution on Using the Lens
- If the lens is subjected to direct sunlight, it could result in discoloration
and deterioration of the image sensor.
- Don’t get fingerprints or foreign substances on the surface of the lens.
Q If the digital camera is not used for a long period, an electric discharge can
occur. It is a good idea to remove the batteries and the memory card if you
do not intend using the camera for an extended period of time.
Q If the camera is exposed to an electronic interference, it will turn itself off to
protect the memory card.
- Avoid obstructing the lens or the flash when you capture an image.
77
Important notes
