Shooting tips
When you are unsure of how to take a picture
that you envision, refer to the information below.
When objects are at different
distances
Focusing
“Focusing on the subject”
● Taking a picture of a subject not in the center
of the screen
After focusing on an object at the same distance
as the subject, compose the shot, and take the
picture.
Pressing the shutter button halfway (p. 14)
● Set [AF MODE] (p. 27) to [iESP].
● Taking a picture of subjects where autofocus
is difficult
In the following cases, after focusing on an object
(by pressing the shutter button halfway down) with
high contrast at the same distance as the subject,
compose the shot, and take the picture.
Fast-moving object
The subject is not in the center
of the frame
Camera shake
“Taking pictures without camera shake”
Subjects with low contrast
● Taking pictures using h mode (p. 17) or [DIS
MOVIE MODE] (p. 28)
● Taking pictures at a high ISO sensitivity
When extremely bright objects
appear in the center of the
screen
If a high ISO sensitivity is selected, pictures can
be taken at a high shutter speed even at locations
where a flash cannot be used.
[ISO] (p. 26)
● Setting the scene mode to [C SPORT]
Selecting [C SPORT] enables pictures to be
taken at a high shutter speed, thereby reducing
blur caused by movement of the subject.
● Applying [DIS EDIT] to blurred images (p. 31)
Object with no vertical lines*1
*1
50
EN
It is also effective to compose the shot by holding
the camera vertically to focus, and then returning to
the horizontal position to take the picture.
Exposure (brightness)
Panorama
“Taking pictures with the right
brightness”
“Taking pictures so that the frames are
stitched smoothly”
● Taking pictures of a subject against a backlight
● A tip for panoramic shooting
A face against the backlight is brightened.
[SHADOW ADJ] (p. 22, 28)
● Taking pictures using [FACE DETECT] for
[AF MODE] (p. 27)
Appropriate exposure is obtained for a face
against the backlight, and the face is brightened.
● Taking pictures using [n] for [ESP/n] (p. 27)
The brightness is adjusted according to the
subject in the center of the screen without being
influenced by the background light.
● Taking pictures using [FILL IN] (p. 20) flash
A face against the backlight is brightened.
● Taking pictures of a white beach or snow
scene
Set the s mode to [q BEACH & SNOW]. (p. 17)
● Taking pictures using exposure compensation
(p. 20)
Adjust the brightness while viewing the screen
for taking the picture. Normally, taking pictures of
white subjects (such as snow) results in images
that are darker than the actual subject. Use the F
button to adjust in the positive direction to express
whites as they appear.
When taking pictures of black subjects, on the
other hand, it is effective to adjust in the negative
direction.
Color hue
“Taking pictures with colors at the same
shade as they appear”
● Taking pictures by selecting [WB] (p. 26)
Best results in most environments can normally
be obtained with the AUTO setting, but for some
subjects, you should try experimenting with
different settings. (This is especially true for
sunshade under a clear sky, mixed natural and
artificial light settings, and so on.)
Image quality
“Taking sharper pictures”
Taking pictures by pivoting with the camera at the
center prevents shifting of the image. When taking
pictures of close objects in particular, pivoting with
the lens end at the center produces favorable
results.
Batteries
“Making batteries last longer”
● Avoid performing the following operations as
much as possible as they use up battery power
even if no pictures are actually taken.
● Repeatedly pressing the shutter button
halfway
● Repeated use of the zoom
● Set [POWER SAVE] (p. 40) to [ON].
Playback/Editing tips
Playback
“Playing images in the internal memory/
card”
● Remove the card when playing images in the
internal memory.
● “Loading the battery and the xD-Picture
Card™ (sold separately) into the camera”
(p. 11)
● “Using a microSD card/microSDHC card (sold
separately)” (p. 12)
Editing
“Erasing the sound recorded to a still
image”
● Record over the sound with silence when
playing back the image
[R] (Add sound to still images) (p. 34)
● Taking pictures with the optical zoom
Avoid using [DIGITAL ZOOM] (p. 27) to take
pictures.
● Taking pictures at a low ISO sensitivity
If the picture is taken with a high ISO sensitivity,
noise (small colored spots and color unevenness
that were not in the original image) can occur, and
the image can appear grainy.

EN
Battery Handling Precautions
• This camera uses a lithium ion battery specified by
Olympus. Do not use any other type of battery.
• If the battery’s terminals get wet or greasy, camera
contact failure may result. Wipe the battery well
with a dry cloth before use.
• Always charge a battery when using it for the first
time, or if it has not been used for a long period.
• When operating the camera with battery power
at low temperatures, try to keep the camera and
spare battery as warm as possible. A battery that
has run down at low temperatures may be restored
after it is warmed at room temperature.
• The number of pictures you can take may vary
depending on the shooting conditions or battery.
• Before going on a long trip, and especially before
traveling abroad, purchase extra batteries. A
recommended battery may be difficult to obtain
while traveling.
• Please recycle batteries to help save our planet’s
resources. When you throw away dead batteries,
be sure to cover their terminals and always
observe local laws and regulations.
LCD Monitor
• Do not push the monitor forcibly; otherwise the
image may become vague, resulting in a playback
mode failure or damage to the monitor.
• A strip of light may appear on the top/bottom of the
monitor, but this is not a malfunction.
• When a subject is viewed diagonally in the
camera, the edges may appear zigzagged on the
monitor. This is not a malfunction; it will be less
noticeable in playback mode.
• In places subject to low temperatures, the LCD
monitor may take a long time to turn on or its
color may change temporarily. When using the
camera in extremely cold places, it is a good idea
to occasionally place it in a warm place. An LCD
monitor exhibiting poor performance due to low
temperatures will recover in normal temperatures.
• The LCD used for the monitor is made with
high-precision technology. However, black spots
or bright spots of light may appear constantly on
the LCD monitor. Due to its characteristics or the
angle at which you are viewing the monitor, the
spot may not be uniform in color and brightness.
This is not a malfunction.
