Before using the camera
≥ Check whether the lens is stained. (P190)
≥ When starting the camera app, be careful not to interfere with the lens operation.
≥ Make sure that your fingers or hair do not cover the lens when taking pictures.
≥ Always take test shots beforehand.
Always take test shots for important pictures (such as weddings) to confirm that images and sounds are recorded
properly.
≥ If the camera function is interrupted by an incoming call or alarm sound in certain situations, including during exposure
or when the unit is eliminating noise caused by a slow shutter speed, an image may not be recorded.
≥ Compensation cannot be provided for missed shots.
Compensation cannot be provided for missed shots if technical problems with the unit or microSD card prevent
recording.
≥ The effect of the set shutter speed is not reflected in the Recording screen (image shown in the display).
≥ The set aperture value is reflected in the Recording screen only when the shutter button is pressed halfway.
≥ There may be a slight delay between starting recording and actually recording content. When recording objects that
are moving fast, the position displayed on the screen when starting recording may differ slightly to the position being
recorded.
≥ If the temperature of the unit increases when taking pictures under high temperature conditions or taking pictures
continuously, stop recording and end the camera app.
≥ Be sure to pay special attention to the privacy, the likeness rights, etc. of the subject when you use this unit.
Use at your own risk.

∫ About the compatibility of the recorded motion pictures
Even when a compatible device is used, recorded motion pictures may be played back with reduced picture and
sound quality, or they may not be played back.
Also, recording information may not be displayed correctly. Use this unit to playback in such case.

≥ What is bit rate
This is the volume of data for a definite period of time, and the quality becomes higher when the number gets
bigger. This unit is using the “VBR” recording method. “VBR” is an abbreviation for “Variable Bit Rate”, and the
bit rate (volume of data for definite period of time) is changed automatically depending on the subject to record.
Therefore, the recording time is shortened when a subject with fast movement is recorded.

A standard image quality JPEG image.
This is useful for increasing the number of
shots without changing the number of pixels.
RAWiJPEG
You can record a RAW image and a JPEG
image ([A]) simultaneously.
RAW
You can only record RAW images.¢1
¢1 It is fixed to maximum recordable pixels ([
]) for each image aspect ratio.
About RAW
RAW format refers to the original format of data that is not image-processed on the unit.
The Playback screen of this unit plays back simplified thumbnails within the RAW image. Accordingly, the image
is displayed rough and has a low enlargement factor.
Special software is needed in the computer to edit RAW images.
Using the dedicated software, you can perform advanced editing, such as adjusting the White Balance after
taking a picture. The software also allows you to save pictures in file formats that can display them on a PC
(JPEG, TIFF, etc.). Pictures taken in RAW format will have higher image quality than those taken in JPEG format,
but the data size will be larger.
≥ To develop or edit RAW files on a computer, use “SILKYPIX Developer Studio” by Ichikawa Soft Laboratory.
Download method:
Download and install “SILKYPIX Developer Studio” onto your computer from the following website.
http://www.isl.co.jp/SILKYPIX/english/p/
Supported OS:

([AF Tracking])
Focus can be adjusted to a specified subject. Focus will keep on
following the subject even if it moves. (Dynamic tracking)
[

([23-Area])
Up to 23 points for each AF area can be focused.
This is effective when the subject is not in the centre of the screen.
(AF area frame will be same as image aspect ratio setting.)

focused.
White
Displayed when more than one face is
detected. Other faces that are the same
distance away as faces within the yellow AF
areas are also focused.
≥ Under certain picture-taking conditions including the following cases, the face detection function may fail to
work, making it impossible to detect faces.
[AF Mode] is switched to [
