Basic troubleshooting
Learn to solve common problems by setting shooting options.
The subject’s eyes
appear red.
Red eye occurs when the subject's eyes reflect light from the camera flash.
• Set the flash option to Red-eye or Red-eye Fix. (p. 59)
• If the photo has already been captured, select Red-eye Fix in the edit menu. (p. 94)
Photos have dust spots.
If dust particles are present in the air, you may capture them in photos when you use the flash.
• Turn off the flash or avoid capturing photos in a dusty place.
• Set ISO sensitivity options. (p. 62)
Photos are blurred.
Blurring can occur if you capture photos in low light conditions or hold the camera incorrectly.
Use the OIS function or half-press [Shutter] to ensure the subject is in focus. (p. 37)
Photos are blurred when
shooting at night.
As the camera tries to let in more light, the shutter speed slows. This can make it difficult to hold the camera steady long
enough to capture a clear photo and may result in camera shake.
• Select Night in
mode. (p. 44)
• Turn on the flash. (p. 60)
• Set ISO sensitivity options. (p. 62)
• Use a tripod to prevent your camera from shaking.
When the light source is behind the subject or when there is a high contrast between light and dark areas, the subject may
appear too dark.
• Avoid shooting toward the sun.
• Select Backlight in
mode. (p. 44)
• Set the flash option to Fill in. (p. 60)
• Adjust the exposure. (p. 70)
• Set the Auto Contrast Balance (ACB) option. (p. 71)
• Set the metering option to Spot if a subject is in the center of the frame. (p. 72)

About histograms
You can select a display type for the Shooting or Playback mode. Each type displays
different shooting or playback information. See the table below.
A histogram is a graph that illustrates how light is distributed in your photo. If the
histogram has a high peak on the left, the photo is underexposed and will appear
dark. A peak on the right of the graph means that the photo is overexposed and
will appear washed out. The height of the peaks is related to color information. The
more of a particular color, the taller the peak.

Low battery message
Cautions about using the battery
When the battery has fully discharged, the battery icon will turn red and the "Low
Battery" message will appear.
Notes about using the battery
• Avoid exposing batteries to very cold or very hot temperatures (below 0 °C/32 °F
or above 40 °C/104 °F). Extreme temperatures can reduce the charging capacity of
your batteries.
• When you use the camera for an extended period, the area around the battery
chamber may become warm. This does not affect the normal use of the camera.
• Do not pull the power supply cord to disconnect the plug from the power outlet,
as this may cause a fire or electric shock.
• In temperatures below 0 °C/32 °F, battery capacity and battery life may decrease.
• Battery capacity may decrease in low temperatures but will return to normal in
milder temperatures.
• Remove the batteries from your camera when storing it for an extended period.
Installed batteries may leak or corrode over time and cause serious damage
to your camera. Storing the camera for extended periods with the battery
installed causes the battery to discharge. You may not be able to recharge a fully
discharged battery.
• When you do not use the camera for an extended period (3 months or more),

Glossary
ACB (Auto Contrast Balance)
This feature automatically improves the contrast of your images when the subject is
backlit or when there is a high contrast between your subject and the background.
Composition
Composition in photography means arranging objects in a photo. Usually, abiding
by the rule of thirds leads to a good composition.
AEB (Auto Exposure Bracket)
This feature automatically captures several images at different exposures to help
you capture a properly-exposed image.
DCF (Design rule for Camera File system)
A specification to define a file format and file system for digital cameras created by
the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA).
AF (Auto Focus)
A system that automatically focuses the camera lens on the subject. Your camera
uses the contrast to focus automatically.
Depth of field
The distance between the nearest and farthest points that can be acceptably
focused in a photograph. Depth of field varies with lens aperture, focal length, and
distance from the camera to the subject. Selecting a smaller aperture, for example,
will increase the depth of field and blur the background of a composition.
Aperture
The aperture controls the amount of light that reaches the camera’s sensor.
Camera shake (Blur)
If the camera is moved while the shutter is open, the entire image may appear
blurred. This occurs more often when the shutter speed is slow. Prevent camera
shake by raising the sensitivity, using the flash, or using a faster shutter speed.
Alternately, use a tripod, the DIS or OIS function to stabilize the camera.
Digital zoom
A feature that artificially increases the amount of zoom available with a zoom lens
(Optical zoom). When using the Digital zoom, the image quality will deteriorate as
the magnification increases.
Appendixes 129
Glossary
Exposure
The amount of light allowed to reach the camera’s sensor. Exposure is controlled by
a combination of the shutter speed, the aperture value, and ISO sensitivity.
DIS (Digital Image Stabilization)
This feature compensates in real-time for shaking and vibrating while shooting.
There can be a certain amount of image degradation compare to Optical Image
Stabilization.
EV (Exposure Value)
All the combinations of the camera’s shutter speed and lens aperture that result in
the same exposure.
EV Compensation
This feature allows you to quickly adjust the exposure value measured by the
camera, in limited increments, to improve the exposure of your photos. Set the EV
compensation to -1.0 EV to adjust the value one step darker and 1.0 EV to one step
brighter.
Exif (Exchangeable Image File Format)
A specification to define an image file format for digital cameras created by the
Japan Electronic Industries Development Association (JEIDA).
Flash
A speed light that helps to create adequate exposure in low-light conditions.
Focal length
The distance from the middle of the lens to its focal point (in millimeters). Longer
focal lengths result in narrower angles of view and the subject is magnified. Shorter
focal lengths result in wider angles of view.
H.264/MPEG-4
A high-compression video format established by international standard
organizations ISO-IEC and ITU-T and developed by the Joint Video Team (JVT). This
codec is capable of providing good video quality at low bit rates.
Image sensor
The physical part of a digital camera that contains a photosite for each pixel in
the image. Each photosite records the brightness of the light that strikes it during
an exposure. Common sensor types are CCD (Charge-coupled Device) and CMOS
(Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor).
Appendixes 130
Glossary
ISO sensitivity
The sensitivity of the camera to light, based on the equivalent film speed used in
a film camera. At higher ISO sensitivity settings, the camera uses a higher shutter
speed, which can reduce blur caused by camera shake and low light. However,
images with high sensitivity are more susceptible to noise.
JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)
A lossy method of compression for digital images. JPEG images are compressed to
reduce their overall file size with minimal deterioration of the image resolution.
LCD (Liquid Crystal Display)
A visual display commonly used in consumer electronics. This display needs a
separate backlight, such as CCFL or LED, to reproduce colors.
Macro
This feature allows you to capture close-up photos of very small objects. When
using the macro feature, the camera can maintain a sharp focus on small objects at
a near life-size ratio (1:1).
Metering
The metering refers to the way in which the camera measures the quantity of light
to set the exposure.
MJPEG (Motion JPEG)
A video format which is compressed as a JPEG image.
Noise
Misinterpreted pixels in a digital image that may appear as misplaced or random,
bright pixels. Noise usually occurs when photos are shot with a high sensitivity or
when a sensitivity is automatically set in a dark place.
Optical zoom
This is a general zoom which can enlarge images with a lens and does not
deteriorate quality of images.
Quality
An expression of the rate of compression used in a digital image. Higher quality
images have a lower rate of compression, which usually results in a larger file size.
Resolution
The number of pixels present in a digital image. High resolution images contain
more pixels and typically show more detail than low resolution images.
Appendixes 131
Glossary
Shutter speed
Shutter speed refers to the amount of time it takes to open and close the shutter,
and it is an important factor in the brightness of a photo, as it controls the amount
of light which passes through the aperture before it reaches the image sensor. A
fast shutter speed allows less time to let light in and the photo becomes darker and
more easily freezes subjects in motion.
Vignetting
A reduction of an image’s brightness or saturation at the periphery (outer edges)
compared to the center of the image. Vignetting can draw interest to subjects
positioned in the center of an image.
White balance (color balance)
An adjustment of the intensities of colors (typically the primary colors red, green,
and blue), in an image. The goal of adjusting the white balance, or color balance, is
to correctly render the colors in an image.
