During and after periods of extended use, you may notice that the
memory card is warm. This is perfectly normal.
Do not use a memory card that is used in another digital camera.
To use the memory card in this camera, format the memory card
using this camera.
Do not use a memory card formatted by another digital camera or
memory card reader.
If the memory card is subjected to any of the following, the recorded data may become corrupted :
- When the memory card is used incorrectly.
- If the power is switched off or the memory card is removed while
recording, deleting (formatting) or reading.
Samsung cannot be held responsible for lost data.
It is advisable to copy important data onto other media as back-up
e.g. hard disks, CD etc.

A [Memory Full] message will appear and the camera will not
operate. To optimise the amount of memory in the camera, replace
the memory card or delete unnecessary images stored on the
memory card.

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.
- 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.
Handling the camera
- 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.
- 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.
079
Important notes
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.
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.
If the camera is exposed to an electronic interference, it will
turn itself off to protect the memory card.
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.
If the digital camera is not used for a long period, the date and
time may adopt the default settings by automatical battery
discharged. In this case, reset the date and time correctly before
the recording.
