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.
• 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 a card is accidentally swallowed.
• 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.
• 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 and

• 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.
• Remove the battery from the camera immediately if it becomes hot or
begins to smoke. Be careful not to burn yourself during removal.
• 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.
• Should the LCD be damaged, be careful of glass fragments. Also, be
careful not to allow the liquid crystal to get on your skin or in your eyes or
in your mouth.
About the Battery Charger and the AC Adapter
Warning
• Do not use the product at a voltage other than the specified voltage. Use

or electrical shock. The specified voltage is 100-240V AC.
• Do not disassemble or modify the product. This can cause a fire or
electrical shock.
• If the generation of smoke or strange odor from the product or other
abnormality occurs, immediately discontinue using and consult a PENTAX
Service Center. Continuing to use the product can cause a fire or electrical
shock.
• If water should happen to get inside the product, consult a PENTAX
Service Center. Continuing to use the product can cause a fire or electrical
shock.
2
• If lightning should be present during use of the battery charger or AC
adapter, unplug the power cord and discontinue use. Continuing to use the
product can cause damage to the equipment, fire or electrical shock.
• Wipe off the plug of the power cord if it should become covered with dust.
This can cause a fire.
Caution
• Do not place heavy objects on the AC plug cord, allow heavy objects to
drop onto it or allow the AC plug cord to become damaged due to
excessive bending. If the AC plug cord becomes damaged, consult a
PENTAX Service Center.
• Do not short or touch the output terminals of the product while it is still
plugged in.
• Do not plug in the AC plug cord with wet hands. This can cause an
electrical shock.
• Do not subject the product to strong impacts or allow it to drop onto a hard
surface. This can cause a malfunction.
• Do not use the battery charger to charge batteries other than rechargeable
lithium-ion battery D-LI8. This can cause overheating or malfunctions.
Care to be Taken During Handling
• 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 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.
• The lens on this camera is not exchangeable. The lens is not removable.
• Do not clean the product with organic solvents such as thinner, alcohol or
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.
3
• 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 PENTAX Service Center and have it checked.
• 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 a high temperature 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.
• 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.
• Refer to “Precautions When Using an SD Memory Card” (p.30) 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.
• The AC plug cord supplied with the camera is for exclusive use with the
battery charger D-BC8. Do not use it with any other equipment.
4
Waterproof and Dustproof Function
• This camera has been proven to comply with JIS Class 8 waterproof
performance and Class 5 dustproof performance (IP58).
• To enhance the waterproof performance of the camera, the front of the lens
is protected by glass. As any dirt or water on the glass will affect the quality
of pictures taken, the glass should be kept clean at all times.
• Do not place the camera directly on the sand at the beach or similar places.
• The camera will sink if dropped in water, so be sure to attach the strap and
slip the strap over your wrist when using the camera in or near water.
• Be sure to check that the battery/card cover is securely locked before using
the camera in an environment where it is likely to get wet or dirty, such as
underwater or at the beach. Water, sand or dirt inside the camera may
cause failure of the camera. Wipe off any water or dirt with a dry cloth as
soon as possible after using the camera.
• Avoid opening the battery/card cover at the beach or by the sea. Wait until
the camera is completely dry before changing the battery or the SD
Memory Card. Avoid changing the battery or card where the camera is
likely to get wet or dirty, and make sure that your hands are dry.
• 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 cover is 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 soap water, mild detergents, and
alcohol as this may compromise the waterproof performance of the
camera.
• Wipe off any dirt or sand on the waterproof packing or the packing contact
surface. The camera’s waterproof function 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 PENTAX Service Center.
• To maintain the waterproof performance of the camera, you are
recommended to change the waterproof packing once a year. Contact your
nearest PENTAX Service Center regarding changing the packing. (A
charge will be made.)
• Avoid subjecting the camera to substantial vibrations, shocks, or pressure
as this may cause a loss in waterproof performance. If the camera is
subjected to substantial vibrations, shocks or pressure, take your camera
to your nearest PENTAX Service Center and have it checked.
• Avoid getting sunscreen or sun oil on the camera as it may cause
discoloration of the surface. If any oil gets on the camera, wash it off
immediately with warm water.
• The waterproof function does not apply to the camera’s accessories.

Camera Features
In addition to basic picture-taking, the OptioWPi 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.
Forget Your Worries About Water Getting in the
Camera!
The OptioWPi has high waterproof performance that lets you take
pictures continuously for 30 minutes 1.5 m underwater. The lock
mechanism of the battery/card cover is designed for underwater picturetaking. (p.70)
For taking pictures while snorkeling.
For taking pictures at the pool or while playing in a river
or lake.
For taking pictures while enjoying various outdoor
activities without worrying about your camera getting a
bit dirty. A quick wipe with a wet cloth is all it needs!
12
Record Sound Before and After Taking Pictures!
With the OptioWPi, not only can you add a voice memo to a still picture,
but by switching to Synchro Sound Record mode, the surrounding
sounds are automatically captured until you press the shutter release
button to take the picture. A total of 20 seconds of sound, 10 seconds
before and 10 seconds after the shutter release button is pressed, are
saved. (p.71)
For recording yourself saying “Say cheese!” or “Look at
the camera”.
For including the cheers of the crowd at exciting
moments of a sporting event.
Choose a Frame Before Taking the Picture!
The OptioWPi lets you choose a
frame and display it on the screen
before you take the picture, so you
can be sure that the frame
complements your subject perfectly.
(p.74) Of course, you can still use the
editing functions to add a frame
afterwards. (p.130)
For decorating your pictures
with a frame.
13
Easy-to-Navigate Capture and Playback
Functions!
The user-friendly design of the OptioWPi enables easy operation with the
minimum number of buttons on the camera body. Simply by choosing the
appropriate icon, you can select Capture mode (p.53) and choose the
optimal settings for the situation, or Playback mode (p.104, p.122) and
enjoy the various playback and editing functions. Pressing the Green
button displays a guide on the LCD monitor to let you check the functions
available in each mode and how to use them. (p.62)
Press the Green button while the Mode Palette is
displayed to display the guide. (p.62)
Use the Green mode to take pictures easily using
standard settings. (p.64)
Perfect Size for Carrying Around With You!
With its compact, stylish design,
the OptioWPi is just right to slip
into a pocket of your bag or hang
round your neck, so you always
have it with you, like your cell
phone. It has a useful clock
function, “Clock Mode”, for telling
the time too. (p.167)
14
Enjoy Playback and Editing Functions Without a
Computer!
The OptioWPi lets you play back and edit 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.122)
And no more worries about accidentally deleting images, because now,
with the OptioWPi, you can recover them again. (p.119)
The wide range of editing functions includes resizing
(p.122), trimming (p.124), changing the color (p.127) and
adjusting the brightness (p.128).
If your subject’s eyes appear red in the picture, you can
correct them while the image is displayed in Playback
mode. (p.129)
You can divide a movie into two, stitch two movies
together or select a frame from a movie to save as a still
picture. (p.132)

(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 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 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.
• For information on compatible SD Memory Cards, visit the PENTAX website
or contact your nearest PENTAX Service Center.
Recorded Pixels and Quality Level of Still Pictures
1
Getting Started
Choose the number of pixels (size) and quality level (data compression
rate) of still pictures according to how you intend to use the pictures you
have taken.
Higher quality levels and numbers of pixels produce clearer images for
printing, but the resulting increase in data volume reduces the total
number of pictures that can be stored in the camera’s built-in memory or
on the SD Memory Card.
The quality of the captured photo or printed picture also depends on the
quality level, exposure compensation, resolution of the printer and a
variety of other factors, so you do not need to select more than the
required number of pixels. As a rough guide, i (1600×1200) is
adequate for making postcard-size prints. Refer to the table below for the
appropriate settings according to use.

[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. Setting the flash mode to c (Auto +
Red-eye) or d (Flash On + Red-eye) is also an effective way of
preventing red eyes.
If the subject’s eyes appear red despite such precautions, they can
be corrected by the red-eye compensation function (p.129).

power while the camera is connected to the printer.
• Do not disconnect the USB cable during data transfer.
• Depending on the type of printer, not all the settings made on the
camera (such as print settings and DPOF settings) may be valid.
• A printing error may occur if the selected number of copies
exceeds 500.

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

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.
183
• 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
