Precautions
Before using the camera, please ensure that you read and understand the safety
precautions described below. Always ensure that the camera is operated correctly.
•
Do not point the camera directly into the sun or other intense light sources which could
damage your eyesight.
•
Do not try to open the case of the camera or attempt to modify this camera in any way.
High-voltage internal components create the risk of electric shock when exposed.
Maintenance and repairs should be carried out only by authorized service providers.
•
Do not fire the flash too close to the eyes of animals or people, especially young children.
Eye damage may result. In particular, keep at least one meter away from infants when
using the flash.
•
Keep the camera away from water and other liquids. Do not use the camera with wet
hands. Never use the camera in the rain or snow. Moisture creates the danger of electric
shock.
•
Keep the camera and its accessories out of the reach of children and animals to prevent
accidents or damage to the camera.
•
If you notice smoke or a strange odor coming from the camera, turn the power off
immediately. Take the camera to the nearest authorized service center for repair. Never
attempt to repair the camera on your own.
•
Use only the recommended power accessories. Use of power sources not expressly
recommended for this equipment may lead to overheating, distortion of the equipment,
fire, electrical shock or other hazards.

Disclaimer
We assume no responsibility over and above the provisions of the Product Liability Law for
damages suffered by the user or third parties as a result of inappropriate handling of the
product or its accessories, or by their operational failure and by their use. We reserve the right
to make changes to this product and its accessories without prior notice.
Warning! Never open the camera or remove any parts of it. This will void all guarantee
claims.
Using your batteries
For best performance and prolonged battery life, we recommend the use of AAA-sized
rechargeable NiMH batteries.
Extending battery life
The following functions use up a great deal of battery power and should therefore only be
used occasionally:
•
Excessive use of flash
•
Editing images on the camera display
The battery life can be affected by soiling. Please clean the contacts with a clean, dry cloth
before putting the batteries in the camera. Battery performance drops at temperatures below
5° C (41° F). If you use the camera at low temperatures you should have replacement
batteries to hand and ensure they do not get too cold. Please note: you should not dispose of
cold and seemingly flat batteries because these batteries may work again at room
temperature.

About the Folder & File Names

on the memory card that it uses to organize still images, movie clips and other
information.
Folder Structure
The folder name begins with a 3-digit number from
100 to 999 and is followed by "DCIM". A new folder
can only be made manually. If new files are made,
the new files named in sequence will be made
automatically.
Naming Files
File names begin with "PICT" and are followed by a 4-digit number that increases in
sequence. File numbering starts from 0001 when a new folder is created.
Caution
