Health and safety information
Always comply with the following precautions and usage tips to avoid dangerous situations and ensure peak performance of your camera.
Prevent damage to subjects’ eyesight
Warning—situations that could cause injury to yourself or
others
Do not use the flash in close proximity (closer than 1 m/3 ft) to
people or animals. Using the flash too close to your subject’s
eyes can cause temporary or permanent damage.
Caution—situations that could cause damage to your
camera or other equipment
Handle and dispose of batteries and chargers with care
Note—notes, usage tips, or additional information
t Use only Samsung-approved batteries and chargers.
Incompatible batteries and chargers can cause serious injuries
or damage to your camera.
t Never dispose of batteries in a fire. Follow all local regulations
when disposing of used batteries.
t Never place batteries or cameras on or in heating devices,
such as microwave ovens, stoves, or radiators. Batteries may
explode when overheated.
t Do not use a damaged power supply cord, plug, or loose
outlet when charging batteries. This may cause a fire or electric
shock.
Safety warnings
Do not use your camera near flammable or explosive
gases and liquids
Do not use your camera near fuels, combustibles, or flammable
chemicals. Do not store or carry flammable liquids, gases, or
explosive materials in the same compartment as the camera or its
accessories.
Keep your camera away from small children and pets
Keep your camera and all accessories out of the reach of small
children and animals. Small parts may cause choking or serious
injury if swallowed. Moving parts and accessories may present
physical dangers as well.
1
Health and safety information
t Exercise caution when connecting cables or adapters and
installing batteries and memory cards. Forcing the connectors,
improperly connecting cables, or improperly installing batteries
and memory cards can damage ports, connectors, and
accessories.
t Do not insert foreign objects into any of your camera’s
compartments, slots, or access points. Damage due to
improper use may not be covered by your warranty.
t Do not swing your camera by the strap. This may cause injury
to yourself or others.
t Do not paint your camera, as paint can clog moving parts and
prevent proper operation.
t Paint or metal on the outside of the camera may cause
allergies, itchy skin, eczema, or swelling for people with
sensitive skin. If you have experience any of these symptoms,
stop using the camera immediately and consult a doctor.
Safety precautions
Handle and store your camera carefully and sensibly
t Do not allow your camera to get wet—liquids can cause serious
damage. Do not handle your camera with wet hands. Water
damage to your camera can void your manufacturer’s warranty.
t Do not expose the camera to direct sunlight or high
temperatures for an extended period of time. Prolonged
exposure to sunlight or extreme temperatures can cause
permanent damage to your camera’s internal components.
t Avoid using or storing your camera in dusty, dirty, humid, or
poorly-ventilated areas to prevent damage to moving parts and
internal components.
t Remove the batteries from your camera when storing it for an
extended period of time. Installed batteries may leak or corrode
over time and cause serious damage to your camera.
t Protect your camera from sand and dirt when using it on
beaches or in other similar areas.
t Protect your camera from impact, rough handling, and
excessive vibration to avoid serious damage.
2
Health and safety information
Protect batteries, chargers, and memory cards from
damage
Use only Samsung-approved accessories
Using incompatible accessories may damage your camera,
cause injury, or void your warranty.
t Avoid exposing batteries or memory cards to very cold or very
hot temperatures (below 0 ºC/32 ºF or above 40 ºC/104 ºF).
Extreme temperatures can reduce the charging capacity of your
batteries and can cause memory cards to malfunction.
t Prevent batteries from making contact with metal objects, as
this can create a connection between the + and – terminals
of your battery and lead to temporary or permanent battery
damage. Also, this may cause a fire or electric shock.
t Prevent memory cards from making contact with liquids, dirt, or
foreign substances. If dirty, wipe the memory card clean with a
soft cloth before inserting in your camera.
t Do not allow liquids, dirt, or foreign substances to come in
contact with the memory card slot. Doing so may cause the
camera to malfunction.
t Turn off the camera when inserting or removing the memory
card.
t Do not bend, drop, or subject memory cards to heavy impact
or pressure.
t Do not use memory cards that have been formatted by other
cameras or by a computer. Reformat the memory card with
your camera.
t Never use a damaged charger, battery, or memory card.
Protect your camera’s lens
t Do not expose the lens to direct sunlight, as this may discolor
the image sensor or cause it to malfunction.
t Protect your lens from fingerprints and scratches. Clean your
lens with a soft, clean, debris-free lens cloth.

Health and safety information
Important usage information
Check that the camera is operating properly before use
The manufacturer takes no responsibility for any loss of files or
damage that may result from camera malfunction or improper
use.
Allow only qualified personnel to service your camera
Do not allow unqualified personnel to service the camera or
attempt to service the camera yourself. Any damage that results
from unqualified service is not covered by your warranty.
Ensure maximum battery and charger life
t Overcharging batteries may shorten battery life. After charging is
finished, disconnect the cable from your camera.
t Over time, unused batteries will discharge and must be
recharged before use.
t Disconnect chargers from power sources when not in use.
t Use batteries only for their intended purpose.
Exercise caution when using the camera in humid
environments
When transferring the camera from a cold environment to a warm
and humid one, condensation can form on the delicate electronic
circuitry and memory card. In this situation, wait for at least 1 hour
until all moisture has evaporated before using the camera.

t Press [Shutter] halfway down to make sure the subject is focused. (p. 30)
t Use the d mode. (p. 41)

are dark. A peak on the right of the graph means that your photos

Adjust aperture value or shutter speed to control the exposure of your photos. You can use these options in the Aperture Priority, Shutter
Priority, and Manual modes.
Aperture value
Shutter speed
The aperture is a hole through which light is admitted. You can
adjust the aperture value to control how much light reaches the
lens when you capture a photo. By decreasing the aperture value
(opening the aperture wider), more light will enter and objects that
are farther away will appear out of focus. This is good for closeup or portrait shots to draw attention to the main subject.
Shutter speed controls how long the camera's shutter remains
open when you capture a photo. When you decrease the shutter
speed, more light enters your camera and the photo will appear
brighter. However, a slower shutter speed can also result in blurry
photos if either the subject or the camera is moving.
Alternatively, as you increase the aperture value, objects from
near to far are in sharp focus. This is good for landscape shots to
show the entire scope of the scene.
Big aperture value
Small aperture value
When you increase the shutter speed, the photo will appear
darker. However, a faster shutter speed will also reduce the
blurring if your subject or the camera is in motion.
