Before Starting Use
• When traveling, take the Worldwide Service Network listing that is included
in the package. This will be useful if you experience problems abroad.
• When the camera has not been used for a long time, confirm that it is still
working properly, particularly prior to taking important pictures (such as at
a wedding or when traveling). Contents of the recording cannot be
guaranteed if recording, playback or transferring your data to a computer,
etc. is not possible due to a malfunction of your camera or recording media
(SD Memory Card), etc.

battery charger D-BC92. Do not use it with any other equipment.
5
Cautions when Carrying and Using the Camera
• Hot and humid places should be avoided. Particular care should be taken
regarding vehicles, which can become very hot inside.
• Ensure that the camera is not subjected to substantial vibrations, shocks,
or pressure as this may cause damage, malfunction, or a loss in waterproof
performance. Place the camera on a cushion for protection when the
camera is subjected to the vibrations of a motorbike, car, ship, etc. If the
camera is subjected to substantial vibrations, shocks, or pressure, take
your camera to your nearest service center and have it checked.
• The temperature range in which the camera can be used is -10°C to 40°C
(14°F to 104°F).
• The liquid crystal display will become black at high temperatures but will
return to normal at normal temperatures.
• The response speed of the liquid crystal display becomes slow at low
temperatures. This is due to the properties of the liquid crystal and is not a
malfunction.
• If the camera is subjected to rapid temperature changes, condensation
may form on the inside and outside of the camera. Therefore put the
camera in a bag or plastic bag and take the camera out when the difference
in temperature has subsided.
• Avoid contact with garbage, mud, sand, dust, water, toxic gases, or salts.
These could cause the camera to breakdown. Wipe the camera to dry off
any rain or water drops.
• Please do not press forcefully on the display. This could cause it to break
or malfunction.

surface of the camera. Make sure that the battery/card cover and terminal
cover are firmly closed before washing the camera in tap water. After
washing the camera, dry it with a soft cloth.
• Wipe off any dirt or sand on the waterproof packing or the packing contact
surface. The camera’s waterproof performance may be compromised by
loose packing or cracks or dents in the packing or packing contact surface.
If there is any such damage, contact your nearest service center.
• If the camera is very dirty or after it has been used in the sea, make sure
that it is turned off and the battery/card and terminal covers are firmly
closed before rinsing it under running tap water or leaving it in a bowl of
clean water for a short time (2 or 3 minutes).
• Avoid cleaning with agents such as soapy water, mild detergents, or
alcohol as this may compromise the waterproof performance of the
camera.
• To maintain the waterproof performance of the camera, you are
recommended to change the waterproof packing once a year. Contact your

Understanding Brightness
If the brightness is correct, the graph peaks in the middle. If the image is
underexposed, the peak is on the left side, and if it is overexposed, the
peak is on the right side.
Dark image
Correct image
Bright image
When the image is underexposed, the part to the left is cut off (dark
portions) and when the image is overexposed, the part to the right is cut
off (bright portions).
This camera has a function where overexposed areas are indicated as
blinking red and underexposed areas as blinking yellow.
Understanding Contrast
The graph peaks gradually for images in which contrast is balanced. The
graph peaks on both sides but sinks in the middle for images with a large
difference in contrast and low amounts of mid-level brightness.

Taking Pictures
• In shooting modes other than R (Program), A (Night Scene),
C (Movie),
(Digital Microscope), c (Digital SR), F (Digital
Panorama), X (Digital Wide), and N (Frame Composite),
saturation, contrast, sharpness, white balance, etc. are automatically
set to the optimal settings for the selected mode.
• Some functions may not be available or may not function fully
depending on the selected shooting mode. For details, refer to
“Functions Available for Each Shooting Mode” (p.258).
• You can turn off the shooting mode guide on the Capture Mode Palette
(p.236).
Using the Face Detection Function
When the camera detects a person’s face in
the image, the Face Detection function
displays a yellow face detection frame around
the face on the display screen, sets the focus
(Face Detection AF) and compensates the
exposure (Face Detection AE).
If the subject in the face detection frame
moves, the frame also moves and
changes size as it tracks the face.
The Face Detection function can
recognize up to 32 people’s faces. If it
recognizes multiple faces, the camera
displays a yellow frame over the main face
and white frames over the other faces. It
can display up to a total of 31 frames,
including both the main and white frames.

camera.
• If the camera cannot detect the subject’s face, the camera focuses
using the setting currently selected in [Focusing Area].

About the red-eye phenomenon
Taking pictures using the flash may cause the subject’s eyes to appear red in
the resulting picture. This phenomenon occurs when the light from the flash is
reflected in the subject’s eyes. It can be reduced by illuminating the area around
the subject or moving closer to the subject and zooming out to a wider angle.
Setting the flash mode to c (Auto + Red-eye) or d (Flash On + Red-eye) is also
an effective way of reducing red eyes.
If the subject’s eyes appear red despite such precautions, they can be corrected
by the red-eye compensation function (p.191).

of twelve months from the date of your purchase. Service will be rendered, and
defective parts will be replaced without cost to you within that period, provided the
camera does not show evidence of impact, sand or liquid damage, mishandling,
tampering, battery or chemical corrosion, operation contrary to operating
instructions, or modification by an unauthorized repair shop. The manufacturer or
its authorized representatives shall not be liable for any repair or alterations
except those made with its written consent and shall not be liable for damages
from delay or loss of use or from other indirect or consequential damages of any
kind, whether caused by defective material or workmanship or otherwise; and it

Procedure During 12-month Warranty Period
Any camera which proves defective during the 12-month warranty period should
be returned to the dealer from whom you purchased the camera or to the
manufacturer. If there are no representatives of the manufacturer in your country,
send the camera to the manufacturer, with postage prepaid. In this case, it will
take a considerable length of time before the camera can be returned to you
owing to the complicated customs procedures required. If the camera is covered
by warranty, repairs will be made and parts replaced free of charge, and the
camera will be returned to you upon completion of servicing. If the camera is not
covered by warranty, regular charges of the manufacturer or of its representatives
will apply. Shipping charges are to be borne by the owner. If your camera was
purchased outside of the country where you wish to have it serviced during the
warranty period, regular handling and servicing fees may be charged by the
manufacturer’s representatives in that country. Notwithstanding this, your camera
returned to the manufacturer will be serviced free of charge according to this
procedure and warranty policy. In any case, however, shipping charges and
customs clearance fees to be borne by the sender. To prove the date of your
purchase when required, please keep the receipt or bills covering the purchase
of your camera for at least a year. Before sending your camera for servicing,
please make sure that you are sending it to the manufacturer’s authorized
representatives or their approved repair shops, unless you are sending it directly
to the manufacturer. Always obtain a quotation for the service charge, and only
after you accept the quoted service charge, instruct the service station to proceed
with the servicing.
• This warranty policy does not affect the customer’s statutory rights.
• The local warranty policies available from our distributors in some
countries can supersede this warranty policy. Therefore, we recommend
that you review the warranty card supplied with your product at the time
of purchase, or contact our distributor in your country for more
information and to receive a copy of the warranty policy.

Information for Users on Collection and Disposal of Old Equipment
and Used Batteries
1. In the European Union
These symbols on the products, packaging and/or
accompanying documents mean that used electrical
and electronic equipment and batteries should not be
mixed with general household waste.
Used electrical/electronic equipment and batteries must
be treated separately and in accordance with legislation
that requires proper treatment, recovery and recycling
of these products.
By disposing of these products correctly you will help
ensure that the waste undergoes the necessary
treatment, recovery and recycling and thus prevent
potential negative effects on the environment and
human health which could otherwise arise due to
inappropriate waste handling.
If a chemical symbol is added beneath the symbol shown above, in
accordance with the Battery Directive, this indicates that a heavy metal
(Hg = Mercury, Cd = Cadmium, Pb = Lead) is present in the battery at a
concentration above an applicable threshold specified in the Battery
Directive.
For more information about collection and recycling of used products,
please contact your local authorities, your waste disposal service or the
point of sale where you purchased the products.
