example, the camera being dropped, please do not under any
circumstances touch such exposed portions, as there is a danger of
receiving an electric shock.
• Wrapping the strap of the camera around your neck is also dangerous.
Please take care that small children do not hang the strap around their
necks.
• To avoid the risk of it being swallowed by mistake, keep the SD Memory
Card out of the reach of small children. Seek medical attention immediately
if accidentally swallowed.
• Use an AC adapter that is of the power and voltage specified for exclusive
use with this product. The use of an AC adapter other than that specified
exclusively for use with this product may cause fire or electric shocks.
• If the camera emits smoke or a strange smell, or in the event of any other
irregularity, stop using the camera immediately, remove the battery or
disconnect the AC adapter and contact your nearest PENTAX service
center. Continued use of the camera may result in fire or electric shock.
1
Caution
• Never try to disassemble or short the battery. Also, do not dispose of the
battery in fire, as it may explode.
• Remove the battery from the camera immediately if it becomes hot or

• Some portions of the camera heat up during use, so please take care, as
there is a risk of low temperature burns if such portions are held for long
periods of time.
• Do not place your finger on the flash when it is discharging as there is a
risk of burns.
• Do not discharge the flash while it is touching your clothing as there is a
risk of discoloring.
• If any of the battery leakage should come in contact with your eyes, do not
rub them. Flush your eyes with clean water and get medical attention
immediately.
• If any of the battery leakage should come in contact with skin or clothes,
wash the affected areas thoroughly with water.

3
Care to be Taken During Handling
• Take the international warranty card with you when you travel abroad.
Also take the Worldwide Service Network 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 during travelling). PENTAX is not responsible for
consequential damages (costs incurred as a result of taking pictures, loss
of benefits that were to be obtained through taking pictures) arising from
failure of this product.
• The lens on this camera is not exchangeable. The lens is not removable.
• Do not clean the product with organic solvents such as thinner or alcohol
benzene.
• Places of high temperature and humidity should be avoided. Particular
care should be taken regarding vehicles, which can become very hot
inside.
• Storing the camera where pesticides and chemicals are handled should be
avoided. Remove from case and store in a well-ventilated place to prevent
the camera from becoming moldy during storage.
• Do not use the camera where it may come in contact with rain, water or any
other liquid, because the camera is not weather, water, or liquid resistant.
Should the camera get wet from rain, splashing water, or any other liquid,
wipe it off immediately with a dry soft cloth.
• Ensure that the camera is not subjected to substantial vibrations, shocks
or pressure. Place the camera on a cushion for protection when the
camera is subjected to the vibrations of a motorbike, car, or ship, etc.
• The temperature range in which the camera can be used is 0°C to 40°C
(32°F to 104°F).
• The liquid crystal display will become black at temperatures of
approximately 60°C (140°F) but will return to normal when normal
temperatures are returned to.
• 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 fault.
• Periodic checks are recommended every 1 to 2 years in order to maintain
high-performance.
4
• 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, dirt, sand, dust, water, toxic gases, salt, etc.
as this may cause damage to the camera. If rain or drops of water get onto
the camera, please wipe dry.
• Refer to “Precautions when using an SD Memory Card” (p.21) regarding
the SD Memory Card.
• Please do not press forcefully on the LCD monitor. This could cause
breakage 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 LCD monitor.
• When using a tripod with the camera, be careful not to overtighten
the screw in the tripod socket on the camera.

size and quality. (1p.22)
Data Backup
Very occasionally, data stored in the built-in memory becomes unreadable. As a
backup measure, we recommend that you download important data to a PC or store
the data in a media other than the built-in memory.

Precautions When Using an SD Memory Card
1
Getting Started
• Make sure that the camera is turned off before opening the card cover.
• The SD Memory Card is equipped with a write-protect switch. Write-protect switch
Setting the switch to [LOCK] protects the existing data by
prohibiting recording of new data, deletion of existing data or
formatting of the card.
• Care should be taken if you remove the SD Memory Card
immediately after using the camera, as the card may be hot.
• Do not remove the SD Memory Card or turn the camera off
while data is being recorded on the card, images or sound
are being played back, or the camera is connected to a PC with the USB cable as
this may cause the data to be lost or the 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.
• Be sure to format unused cards or cards that have been used on another camera.
Refer to “Formatting an SD Memory Card or the Built-in Memory” (p.112) for
instructions on formatting.
• 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.
PENTAX does 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 card has not been used for a long time.
(4) when the card is ejected, the AC adapter is disconnected or the battery is
removed while the data on the card is being recorded or accessed.
• The SD Memory Card has a limited service life. If it is not used for a long time, the
data on the card may become unreadable. Be sure to make a backup of important
data on a PC.
• 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 moving pictures even when there is adequate space in the
memory, or shooting and playback may take a long time.
• When you purchase the SD Memory Cards, access the PENTAX website and
confirm beforehand if they have compatibilty with your camera. Inquiries on the
card compatibility can also be answered by your nearest PENTAX service center.

Image Size and Quality

Getting Started
Choose the image size and quality best suited to your purpose.
Higher quality levels and numbers of recorded pixels produce clearer
images for printing, but the resulting increase in data volume reduces the
total number of pictures that can be taken.

• A three-dimensional effect will not be achieved if the subject
moves before the second image is taken. When taking a person,
you are recommended to ask your model to stay as still as
possible and to take the second picture as quickly as you can. It is
easier to take the pictures if you use a tripod or appropriate base.
• As a guide, the camera should be moved about 1/40 of the distance
between the camera and the subject. For example, if the subject is
3m away, the distance the camera should be moved will be
3m÷40=7.5cm. However, as the way people see three-dimensional
images differs from person to person, there is no need to be too
concerned. Refer to the table below for a simple guide to how far
to move the camera.

Viewing 3D Pictures by the Parallel Method and Cross Method
As our eyes are positioned about 6 cm or 7 cm apart, there is a very
slight deviation between what we see with our right eye and what we see
with our left eye. The difference is processed by our brain to produce a
three-dimensional image. This principle is applied to taking and viewing
3D pictures.
3D pictures can be viewed by the parallel method where the left and right
lines of vision are virtually parallel, as when looking at a distant scene,
or the cross method where the left and right lines of vision are crossed,
as when you cross your eyes. A certain amount of practice may be
necessary to view 3D pictures without using the viewer.
How to Assemble the 3D Image Viewer
Assemble the 3D image viewer (optional) as shown below.
4
Taking Pictures
57
How to View 3D Pictures Using the 3D Image Viewer
Print out the pictures so that they are about 11 cm or 12 cm wide and
place the divider of the 3D image viewer in the middle of the two.
4
Taking Pictures
As the distance between the left and right eyes differs from person
to person, some people may have difficulty obtaining a threedimensional effect even when looking at prints that are the same
size. It may be especially difficult if the pictures are very large or very
small. Try different sizes until the right effect is achieved.
• Never look at the sun through the 3D image viewer.
• Do not leave the 3D image viewer where it is exposed to direct
sunlight as this may lead to fire.

WARRANTY POLICY
All PENTAX cameras purchased through authorized bona fide photographic
distribution channels are guaranteed against defects of material or workmanship
for a period of twelve months from date of purchase. Service will be rendered, and
defective parts will be replaced without cost to you within that period, provided the
equipment 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 is expressly agreed that the liability of the manufacturer or its
representatives under all guarantees or warranties, whether expressed or
implied, is strictly limited to the replacement of parts as hereinbefore provided. No
refunds will be made on repairs by non-authorized PENTAX service facilities.

Appendix
134
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
