Care to be Taken During Handling
Before Using Your Camera
• 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). Pictures and sound 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.
About the Battery and Charger
• Storing the battery fully charged may decrease the battery performance.
Avoid storing in high temperatures.
• If the battery is left inserted and the camera is not used for a long time, the
battery will over-discharge and shorten the battery’s usage span.
• Charging the battery a day before use or on the day of use is
recommended.
• The AC plug cord provided with this camera is developed exclusively for
the battery charger D-BC88. Do not use it with other devices.
Precautions on Carrying and Using Your Camera
• Do not subject the camera to high temperatures or high humidity. Do not
leave the camera in a vehicle, as the temperature can get very high.
• Do not subject the camera to strong vibrations, shocks, or pressure. Use a
cushion to protect the camera from vibrations of motorcycles, automobiles,
or ships.
• The temperature range for camera use is 0°C to 40°C (32°F to 104°F).
• The monitor may appear black at high temperatures, but will return to
normal at normal temperatures.
5
• The monitor may respond more slowly at low temperatures. This is due to
liquid crystal properties, and is not a malfunction.
• Sudden temperature changes will cause condensation on the inside and
outside of the camera. Place the camera in your bag or a plastic bag, and
remove it after temperature of the camera and surroundings are equalized.
• 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 monitor. This could cause it to break
or malfunction.
• Be careful not to sit down with the camera in your back pocket as this may
damage the exterior of the camera or the display.
• Be careful not to overtighten the tripod screw when using a tripod.
• The lens on this camera is not interchangeable. The lens is not removable.
Cleaning Your Camera
• Do not clean the product with organic solvents such as thinner, alcohol or
benzene.
• Use a lens brush to remove dust accumulated on the lens. Never use a
spray blower for cleaning as it may damage the lens.
Storing Your Camera
• Do not store the camera with preservatives or chemicals. Storage in high
temperatures and high humidity can cause mold to grow on the camera.
Remove the camera from its case and store it in a dry and well-ventilated
location.
Other Precautions
• Periodic inspections are recommended every one to two years to maintain
high performance.
• Refer to “Precautions When Using an SD Memory Card” (p.39) regarding
the SD Memory Card.

Camera Features
In addition to basic picture-taking, the Optio H90 has a variety of shooting
modes to suit different situations. This section describes how to make the
most of the key features of your camera. Together with the explanations
of camera operations, it will enable you to enjoy your camera to the full.
Easy-to-Navigate Capture and Playback
Functions!
The user-friendly design of the Optio
H90 enables easy operation with only
a few buttons. Simply by choosing the
appropriate icon, you can select the
shooting mode (p.69) and choose the
optimal settings for the situation, or the
playback mode (p.132, p.154) and
enjoy the various playback and editing
functions. A guide on the display lets
you check the functions available in
each mode and how to use them.
A shooting mode guide is displayed in the Capture Mode
Palette and a playback mode guide in the Playback Mode
Palette (p.69, p.132).
Use the Green Mode to take pictures easily using
standard settings (p.76).
14
Perfect for Portrait Shots!
The Optio H90 comes with a “Face Detection” function that spots the
faces in your shot and automatically adjusts the focus and exposure for
the faces. It can detect up to 32 people per shot (*), so it will help you
take perfect group shots too. It will automatically release the shutter
when people are smiling, or if anyone blinked, it will tell you that so you
can take the shot again until it is perfect. It also has a feature that lets
you enlarge each person’s face in sequence during playback so you can
quickly check their facial expressions.
* Up to 31 face detection frames (up to 30 frames in Half-length Portrait
mode) are displayed on the monitor.
Face Detection function (p.72)
Modes for taking stunning pictures of people (p.82)
Close-ups of people’s faces for easy checking during
playback (p.140)
Add Various Frames to Your Pictures!
When you take a picture with the Optio
H90, you can choose from a wide range
of fun frames to create attractive framed
shots (p.89). You can also add frames to
pictures you have taken. Adjust the
position of the subject in the picture or
reduce or enlarge the picture size to
match the frame shape and size. Now
you no longer have to worry about the
subject not fitting into the frame (p.161).
For decorating your pictures
with a frame
Display Images and Sound Files in Calendar Format!
With the Optio H90, you can display recorded images and sound files by
date in calendar format (p.131). This lets you quickly find the image or
sound file you want to play back.
15
Advanced Movie Recording Functions
The Optio H90 has a shake reduction function (Movie SR) to reduce
camera shake during movie recording (p.124). And it enables you to
record movies in 1280×720 pixel (16:9) HDTV format (*) (p.123).
* When connecting to and playing back images on AV equipment,
image data is output at normal screen resolution. To view movies in
HDTV, transfer the data to a computer and play it back on the
computer.
Use the camera to shoot fun-filled movies of your children
or pets as a visual diary of their development (p.121).
A Multitude of Functions Inside the Camera for
Enjoying Images Without a Computer!
The Optio H90 has a variety of
functions to let you enjoy playing
back and editing images without
having to connect the camera to
your computer and transfer the
images first. The camera is all
you need to take and edit still
pictures and movies (p.154). And
no more worries about
accidentally deleting images,
because now, with the Optio H90,
you can recover them again
(p.147).
Resize (p.154), Cropping (p.155) and Red-eye
Compensation (p.160) can be used, while the image is
displayed in the playback mode.
You can divide a movie into two or select a frame from a

Using the Histogram
Number of pixels→
A histogram shows the
brightness distribution of an
image. The horizontal axis
represents brightness (dark at
the left and bright at the right)
and the vertical axis represents
the number of pixels.
The shape of the histogram
(Dark)
←Brightness→ (Bright)
before and after shooting tells
you whether the brightness and
contrast are correct or not, and lets you decide if you need to adjust the
exposure and take a picture again.
Setting the Exposure (EV Compensation) 1p.106
26
Understanding Brightness
If the brightness is correct, the graph peaks in the middle. If the image is
too dark, the peak is on the left side, and if it is too bright, the peak is on
the right side.
Dark image
Correct image
Bright image
When the image is too dark, the part to the left is cut off (dark portions)
and when the image is too bright, the part to the right is cut off (bright
portions).
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.

Memory Card or the built-in memory.
• Use the AC adapter with due care to avoid fire or electric shock.
Be sure to read “About the Battery Charger and the AC Adapter” (p.2)
before using the AC adapter.
• Be sure to read the operation manual accompanying the AC adapter
kit K-AC88 before using the adapter.
• When connecting the AC adapter, you cannot set the camera upright
on the table because the cord from the DC coupler comes out of the
bottom of the camera. Additionally, do not place the camera with the
lens facing down because the lens extends when the camera turns on.
Hold the camera in your hand or use a tripod when using the AC
adapter.
Installing the SD Memory Card
• Be sure to use this camera to format (initialize) an SD Memory
Card that is unused or has been used on other cameras or digital
devices. Refer to “Formatting an SD Memory Card” (p.182) for
instructions on formatting.
• When you intend to use the brand-new Eye-Fi memory card for the first
time, copy the Eye-Fi Manager installation file to your computer before
formatting the card.
• Make sure that the camera is turned off before inserting or removing
the SD Memory Card.

card to be damaged.
• Do not bend the SD Memory Card or subject it to violent impact. Keep it away
from water and store away from high temperature.
• Do not remove the SD Memory Card during formatting as this may damage
the card and render it unusable.
• The data on the SD Memory Card may be deleted in the following
circumstances. We do not accept any liability for data that is deleted
(1) when the SD Memory Card is mishandled by the user.
(2) when the SD Memory Card is exposed to static electricity or electrical
interference.
(3) when the SD Memory Card has not been used for a long time.
(4) when the SD Memory Card is ejected or the battery is removed while the
data on the card is being recorded or accessed.
• If it is not used for a long time, the data on the card may become unreadable.
Be sure to regularly make a backup of important data on a computer.
• Avoid using or storing the card where it may be exposed to static electricity or
electrical interference.
• Avoid using or storing the card in direct sunlight or where it may be exposed
to rapid changes in temperature or to condensation.
• When using an SD Memory Card with a slow recording speed, recording may
stop while you are taking movies even when there is adequate space in the
memory, or shooting and playback may take a long time.
• Be sure to format SD Memory Cards that are unused or have been used on
another camera. Refer to “Formatting an SD Memory Card” (p.182).

Using the Face Detection Function
3
Taking Pictures
With the Optio H90, the Face Detection
function is available with all shooting modes.
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 its own size
as it tracks the face.
The Face Detection function can detect up to
32 people’s faces. If it detects multiple faces,
the camera displays a yellow frame over the
main face and white frames over the other
face(s). It can display up to a total of 31 frames
(up to 30 frames in Half-length Portrait mode),
including a main frame and white frame(s).

• Face Detection AF and AE may not work if the subject is wearing sunglasses,
has part of their face covered or is not looking toward the camera.
• If the camera cannot detect the subject’s face, the camera focuses
using the setting currently selected in [Focusing Area].
• When the Smile Capture function is activated, the shutter may not be
released automatically because the Smile Capture function may not
work in some situations, such as when the detected face is too small.
To Switch the Face Detection Function
By default, the Face Detection function is set to Face Detection On. You
can switch to the Smile Capture function, which automatically releases
the shutter when your subject smiles. The Face Detection function is
switched as follows each time the I button is pressed:

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 or d 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.160).

Remedy
The camera may have difficulty in
focusing on such subjects as: low
contrast subjects (a white wall, a blue
sky, etc.), dark subjects, finely-patterned
objects, rapidly-moving objects. It is also
difficult to get proper focus when
shooting through a window or a net. Try
shooting using the focus lock (p.68), or
adjust the focus manually (Manual
Focus) (p.102).
Locate the desired subject in the focus
frame (focusing area) in the center of the
display. If it is difficult to do so, first lock
the focus on the desired subject (focus
lock), and then move the camera to
recompose.

Very occasionally, static electricity may cause camera malfunction. In
this case, remove the battery and install it again. If the camera is then

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

Appendix
Procedure During 12-month Warranty Period
Any PENTAX which proves defective during the 12-month warranty period should
be returned to the dealer from whom you purchased the equipment or to the
manufacturer. If there is no representative of the manufacturer in your country,
send the equipment to the manufacturer, with postage prepaid. In this case, it will
take a considerable length of time before the equipment can be returned to you
owing to the complicated customs procedures required. If the equipment is
covered by warranty, repairs will be made and parts replaced free of charge, and
the equipment will be returned to you upon completion of servicing. If the
equipment 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 PENTAX 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 PENTAX 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 equipment for at least a year. Before sending your equipment
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 PENTAX 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
