Important information about battery usage.
When the camera is not used, turn off the camera power.
Please remove the battery if the camera will not be used for long
periods. Batteries can lose power over time and are prone to
leaking if kept inside the camera.
Low temperatures (below 0°C) can affect the performance of the
battery and you may experience reduced battery life.
Batteries will usually recover at normal temperatures.
During extended use of the camera, the camera body may
become warm. This is perfectly normal.
Connecting to a power source
You can charge the rechargeable battery (SLB-10A) by using the
SAC-47 KIT which consists of the AC adapter (SAC-47) and the
USB cable (SUC-C3).
When the SAC-47 and SUC-C3 are combined, they can be used as
an AC cable.
Using an AC cable:
Connect the AC adapter (SAC-47) to
the USB cable.
It can be used as a power cable.
Important information about USB cable usage.
Use a USB cable (SUC-C3) with the correct specification.
If the camera is connected to the PC through a USB hub:
connect the camera directly to the PC.
If the camera and other devices are connected to the PC at
the same time: remove other device.
If the USB cable is connected to a port located on the front
of the PC: remove the cable and connect it to a port located
on the back of the PC.
If the USB port of the PC doesn’t meet the Power output
standard (5V, 500mA), the camera may not be charged.
Using a USB cable:
Remove the AC adapter (SAC-47).
You can download stored images to
your PC (p.89) or supply the power
to your camera through the USB
cable(SUC-C3).

Instructions on how to use the memory card
Be sure to format the memory card (see p.77) if you are using a newly
purchased memory card for the first time, if it contains data that the camera
cannot recognise, or if it contains images captured with a different camera.
Turn off the camera power whenever the memory card is being inserted or
removed.
Repeated use of the memory card will eventually reduce the memory
card’s performance. Should this be the case, you will need to purchase a
new memory card. Wear and tear on the memory card is not covered by
the Samsung warranty.
The memory card is an electronic precision device. Do not bend, drop or
subject the memory card to any heavy impact.
Do not store the memory card in an environment with strong electronic or
magnetic fields, e.g. near loud speakers or TV receivers.
Please do not use or store in an environment where there are extremes in
temperature.
Do not allow the memory card to become dirty or to come into contact with
any liquid. Should this happen, clean the memory card with a soft cloth.
Please keep the memory card in its case when not in use.
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.
016
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.
floppy disks, hard disks, CD etc.
If there is insufficient memory available:
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.
Don’t remove the memory card when the camera status lamp
is blinking as this may cause damage to data in the memory
card.
Instructions on how to use the memory card
The camera can use SD/ SDHC Memory Cards and MMC (Multi
Media Cards).
