Charging the battery
Use the charger to charge the battery before using it for the first time. A computer can be also
used to charge the device by connecting them via the USB cable.
Use only Samsung-approved chargers, batteries, and cables. Unapproved chargers or
cables can cause the battery to explode or damage the device.
• When the battery power is low, the battery icon appears empty.
• If the battery is completely discharged, the device cannot be turned on
immediately when the charger is connected. Allow a depleted battery to charge for
a few minutes before turning on the device.
• If you use multiple apps at once, network apps, or apps that need a connection
to another device, the battery will drain quickly. To avoid disconnecting from the
network or losing power during a data transfer, always use these apps after fully
charging the battery.
14
Getting started
1 Connect the USB cable to the USB power adaptor.
2 Plug the end of the USB cable into the multipurpose jack.
Connecting the charger improperly may cause serious damage to the device. Any
damage caused by misuse is not covered by the warranty.

the battery.
• If the device receives an unstable power supply while charging, the touch screen
may not function. If this happens, unplug the charger from the device.
• While charging, the device may heat up. This is normal and should not affect the
device’s lifespan or performance. If the battery gets hotter than usual, the charger
may stop charging.
• If the device is not charging properly, take the device and the charger to a
Samsung Service Centre.
15
Getting started
4 After fully charging, disconnect the device from the charger. First unplug the charger
from the device, and then unplug it from the electric socket.
Do not remove the battery before removing the charger. This may damage the
device.
To save energy, unplug the charger when not in use. The charger does not have a
power switch, so you must unplug the charger from the electric socket when not in
use to avoid wasting power. The charger should remain close to the electric socket
and easily accessible while charging.

Configuring settings
About configuring settings
On the Apps screen, tap Camera → . Not all of the following options are available in both
still camera and video camera modes. The available options vary depending on the mode
used.
• Shutter speed: Adjust the shutter speed to capture photos of fast-moving subjects or
create tracer effects in a photo.
• Aperture: Adjust the aperture value to take portraits, flowers, or landscape shots.
• EV: If the exposure set by the camera is higher or lower than you expected, you can
adjust the exposure value manually.
• ISO: The ISO sensitivity value represents the sensitivity of the camera to light. The higher
the ISO sensitivity, the more sensitive the camera is to light. Consequently, by selecting a
higher ISO sensitivity, you can take photos in dim or dark places at faster shutter speeds.
However, this may increase electronic noise and result in a grainy photo.
• WB (light source): Select an appropriate white balance, so images have a true-to-life
colour range.
• Flash: To take a realistic photo of a subject, the amount of light should be constant. When
the light source varies, you can use a flash and supply a constant amount of light.
• Focus mode: Use this option to select a focus mode appropriate to the subject.
• Drive mode: Use this option to set the shooting method. Continuous shots are
recommended for shooting the rapid motion of fast moving subjects, such as racing cars.
• Sync films: Set when to sync film data with the server.
• Timer: Use this option for delayed-time shots.
• Detection display: Set the device to display an icon that represents a detected scene.

more memory.
• Quality: Use this option to select a higher photo quality for better photos. Selecting a
higher photo quality also increases the file size.
• Auto contrast: Use this option to improve contrast automatically in photos with backlit
subjects or high contrast between subjects and backgrounds.
• Metering: Select a metering method. This determines how light values are calculated.
– – Multi averages the entire scene.
– – Spot measures the light value at a specific location.
– – Centre-weighted measures background light in the centre of the scene.
• Adjust image: Use this option to adjust the colour, saturation, sharpness, or contrast of

You can reorganise camera shortcuts for fast and easy access on the preview screen.
Shutter speed
Shutter speed refers to the amount of time it takes to open and close the shutter. Adjust the
shutter speed to capture photos of fast-moving subjects or create tracer effects in a photo.
A slow shutter speed allows more time to let light in, so the photo becomes brighter. This
adds a motion blurring effect to moving objects. A fast shutter speed allows less time to let
light in and the photo becomes darker and more easily freezes subjects in motion.
Tap
, and then rotate the Shutter speed dial to adjust the shutter speed.
93
Camera
Aperture
The size of the aperture is represented by a value known as an “F-number.” The smaller the
f-number, the greater the size of the aperture. Adjust the aperture value to take portraits,
flowers, or landscape shots.
Select a lower aperture value to make the photos brighter. Select a higher aperture value to
make the photos darker.
Tap
, and then rotate the Aperture dial to adjust the aperture value.
EV
The camera automatically sets the exposure by measuring the levels of light from the photo’s
composition and the position of a subject. If the exposure set by the camera is higher or lower
than you expected, you can adjust the exposure value manually.
Tap
, and then rotate the EV dial to adjust the exposure value.
Darker (-)
Neutral (0)
Brighter (+)
• When taking a photo, if the appropriate exposure value cannot be decided, tap
→ Drive mode → AE BKT to take three consecutive photos with different
exposure values.
• Taking photos with higher exposure values may result in blurry photos due to the
slower shutter speed.

WB (light source)
The White balance represents the light source that influences on the colour of a photo.
The colour of a photo depends on the type and quality of the light source. If you want the
colour of your photo to be realistic, select an appropriate lighting condition to calibrate the
white balance, or adjust the colour temperature manually. You can also adjust colour for the
preset light sources so that the colours of the photo match the actual scene under mixed
lighting conditions.
Tap

• Custom: Use this to set a customised white balance for the lighting conditions of your
photo. You can appropriately adjust your colours for the actual scene. Tap , aim the lens
at a piece of white surface, and then press the Shutter button.
• K: Use this to manually adjust the colour temperature of the light source. Colour
temperature is a measurement in degrees Kelvin that indicates the specific type of light
source. You can get a warmer photo with a higher value, and a cooler photo with a lower
value. Tap , and then drag the slider or tap or to adjust the colour temperature.
