How to make print reservations
Print reservation allows you to save printing data (the number of prints and the date and time
information) with the pictures stored on the card.
With print reservation, you can print out pictures easily either at home using a personal DPOFcompatible printer or at a photo store that supports DPOF. DPOF is a standard format used to
record automatic print information from digital cameras.
Only the images stored on the card can be reserved to print. Insert a card with recorded
pictures into the camera before making print reservations.

Shooting tips
Focusing on the subject
There are several ways to focus, depending on the subject.
When the subject is not in the center of the frame
• Place the subject in the center of the frame, lock the focus on the subject, and then
recompose your picture.
• Set [AF MODE] to [iESP].
g “AF MODE Changing the focusing area” (P. 21)
The subject is moving quickly
• Focus the camera on a point roughly the same distance away as the subject you want
to shoot (by pressing the shutter button halfway), and then recompose your picture and
wait for the subject to enter the frame.
Subjects that are difficult to focus on
• Under certain types of conditions, it is difficult to focus using auto focus. The green lamp
on the monitor lights, allowing you to check if the focus is locked.
Getting to know your camera better
The green lamp
blinks.
The subject cannot be
brought into focus.
Subject with low
contrast
Subject with an
extremely bright
area in the center
of the frame
Subject without
vertical lines
Subjects at
different distances
Fast-moving
subject
The subject is not
in the center of the
frame
The green lamp
lights, but the
subject cannot be
brought into focus.
In these cases, focus (focus lock) on an object with high contrast at the same
distance as the intended subject, recompose your shot and then take the
picture. If the subject has no vertical lines, hold the camera vertically and focus
the camera using the focus lock function by pressing the shutter button halfway,
and then return the camera to the horizontal position while keeping the button
pressed halfway and take the picture.
Prevent blur by using image stabilization
Hold the camera in a correct posture and press the shutter button slowly. To stabilize the digital
image, take pictures with h pressed (Stylus750/µ750) or the mode dial set to h (Stylus740/
µ740).
The digital images are not stabilized when:
• images are shot using a zooming function of high magnification, i.e., using both optical
zoom and digital zoom functions,
• the object is dark and the shutter speed is slow, or
• the flash cannot be used or when a low shutter speed set s mode is selected.
52
EN
d4314_15_e.book Page 53 Monday, June 26, 2006 7:13 PM
Taking stabilized pictures without the flash
The flash is activated automatically when there is insufficient light, or when the camera is shaken.
To take pictures with no flash in dark places, set the flash mode to $ and set as follows:
Set the camera to h mode
g “h button Shooting pictures using the image stabilizer (Stylus750/µ750)” (P. 14)
“h Shooting pictures using digital image stabilization (Stylus740/µ740)” (P. 11)
Increase the [ISO] setting
g “ISO Changing the ISO sensitivity” (P. 20)
The picture is too grainy
There are several factors that can cause the picture to appear grainy.
Using the digital zoom to take close-up pictures
• With the digital zoom, part of the image is cropped and enlarged. The greater the
magnification, the grainier the picture appears.
g “ISO Changing the ISO sensitivity” (P. 20)
Taking pictures with the correct color
• The reason why there are differences between the colors in a picture and the actual
colors taken and the actual color is the light source illuminating the subject. [WB] is the
function that allows the camera to determine the correct colors. Normally, the [AUTO]
setting provides the optimal white balance, but depending on the subject, it may be better
to experiment with changing the [WB] setting.
• When the subject is in the shade on a sunny day
• When the subject is illuminated by both natural light and indoor lighting, such as when
near a window
• When there is no white in the center of the frame
g “WB Adjusting the color of a picture” (P. 19)
Taking pictures of a white beach or snow scene
• Take pictures with K in s mode. Suitable for taking pictures on a sunny day at the
beach or in the snow.
g “s (Scene) Shooting pictures by selecting a scene according to the
situation” (P. 19)
• Often, bright subjects (such as snow) turn out darker than their natural colors. Adjust [F]
toward [+] to make these subjects closer to their real shades. Conversely, when you are
shooting dark subjects, it can be effective to adjust toward the [–]. Sometimes, using the
flash may not produce the brightness (exposure) that was intended.
g “1F button Changing picture brightness” (P. 14)
EN
53
Getting to know your camera better
g “DIGITAL ZOOM Zooming in on your subject” (P. 20)
Increasing the ISO sensitivity
• When you increase the [ISO] setting, “noise”, which appears as spots of unwanted color
or unevenness in the color, can be introduced and give the picture a grainy appearance.
This camera is equipped with a function to allow shooting at high sensitivity while
suppressing noise; however, increasing the ISO sensitivity creates grainier pictures than
when using a lower sensitivity.
d4314_15_e.book Page 54 Monday, June 26, 2006 7:13 PM
Taking pictures of a subject against backlight
• With [ESP/n] set to [n], the picture can be taken based on the brightness at the
center of the monitor without being affected by the light in the background.
g “ESP/n Changing the area for measuring the brightness of a subject” (P. 20)
• Set the flash to [#] to activate fill-in-flash. You can shoot a subject against backlight without
the face of the subject appearing dark. [#] is effective for shooting against backlight and
under fluorescent and other artificial lightening.
g “3# button Flash shooting” (P. 13)
Additional shooting tips and information
Getting to know your camera better
Increasing the number of pictures that can be taken
There are two ways to record the pictures you take with this camera.
Recording pictures to the internal memory
• Pictures are recorded to the internal memory, and when the number of storable still
pictures reaches 0, you must connect the camera to a computer to download the
pictures, and then erase the pictures from the internal memory.
Using a card (optional)
• Pictures are recorded to the card when inserted in the camera. When the card is full, you
download the pictures to a computer, and then either erase the pictures from the card or
use a new card.
• Pictures are not recorded to the internal memory when a card is inserted in the camera.
Pictures in the internal memory can be copied to the card using the [BACKUP] function.

Handling the Camera
WARNING
Do not use the camera near flammable or explosive gases.
Do not use the flash on people (infants, small children, etc.) at close range.
• You must be at least 1 m (3 ft.) away from the faces of your subjects. Firing the flash too close to
the subject’s eyes could cause a momentary loss of vision.
Keep young children and infants away from the camera.
• Always use and store the camera out of the reach of young children and infants to prevent the
following dangerous situations which could cause serious injury:
• Becoming entangled in the camera strap, causing strangulation.
• Accidentally swallowing the battery, cards or other small parts.
• Accidentally firing the flash into their own eyes or those of another child.
• Accidentally being injured by the moving parts of the camera.
Do not look at the sun or strong lights with the camera.
Do not use or store the camera in dusty or humid places.
Do not cover the flash with a hand while firing.
CAUTION
Stop using the camera immediately if you notice any unusual odors, noise, or smoke around
it.
• Never remove the batteries with bare hands, which may cause a fire or burn your hands.
Never hold or operate the camera with wet hands.
Do not leave the camera in places where it may be subject to extremely high temperatures.
• Doing so may cause parts to deteriorate and, in some circumstances, cause the camera to catch
fire. Do not use the charger or AC adapter if it is covered (such as a blanket). This could cause
overheating, resulting in fire.
Handle the camera with care to avoid getting a low-temperature burn.
• When the camera contains metal parts, overheating can result in a low-temperature burn. Pay
attention to the following:
• When used for a long period, the camera will get hot. If you hold on to the camera in this state,
a low-temperature burn may be caused.
• In places subject to extremely cold temperatures, the temperature of the camera’s body may
be lower than the environmental temperature. If possible, wear gloves when handling the
camera in cold temperatures.
Be careful with the strap.
• Be careful with the strap when you carry the camera. It could easily catch on stray objects - and
cause serious damage.
Follow these important guidelines to prevent batteries from leaking, overheating, burning,
exploding, or causing electrical shocks or burns.
DANGER
• The camera uses a lithium ion battery specified by Olympus. Charge the battery with the specified
charger. Do not use any other chargers.
• Never heat or incinerate batteries.
• Take precautions when carrying or storing batteries to prevent them from coming into contact with any
metal objects such as jewelry, pins, fasteners, etc.
• Never store batteries where they will be exposed to direct sunlight, or subjected to high temperatures in
a hot vehicle, near a heat source, etc.
• To prevent causing battery leaks or damaging their terminals, carefully follow all instructions regarding
the use of batteries. Never attempt to disassemble a battery or modify it in any way, by soldering, etc.

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 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. A 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 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.
