FCC/IC RF Exposure Statement
The available scientific evidence
does not show that any health problems are associated with using low
power wireless devices. There is no
proof, however, that these low
power wireless devices are absolutely safe. Low power wireless
devices emit low levels of radio frequency energy (RF) in the microwave range while being used.
Whereas high levels of RF can produce health effects (by heating tissue), exposure to low-level RF that
does not produce heating effects
causes no known adverse health
effects. Many studies of low-level RF
exposures have not found any biological effects. Some studies have
suggested that some biological
effects might occur, but such findings have not been confirmed by
additional research. Wireless LAN
Module (2143EB) has been tested
and found to comply with FCC/IC
radiation exposure limits set forth
for an uncontrolled equipment and
meets the FCC radio frequency (RF)
Exposure Guidelines in Supplement
C to OET65 and RSS-102 of the IC
radio frequency (RF) Exposure rules.
Please refer to the SAR test report
that was uploaded at FCC website.
This device should not be co-located
or operated in conjunction with any
other antenna or transmitter.
Notice for customers in the
U.S.A.
FCC RF Interference Statement
This equipment has been tested and
found to comply with the limits for a
Class B digital device, pursuant to
Part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates,
uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed
and used in accordance with the
instructions, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur
in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television
reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off
and on, the user is encouraged to
try to correct the interference by
one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving
antenna.
• Increase the separation between
the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an
outlet on a circuit different from
that to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/television technician
for help.
Notices
Notice for customers in Canada

(c 104) are enabled to reduce effects of camera shake and blurred subjects, producing clear
images. With BSS enabled, the camera takes shots to a maximum of ten, they are compared,
and the sharpest picture (picture with the highest level of detail) is saved. A higher sensitivity
is set, and the shutter speed will be faster than in L (auto) mode.

The AF-assist Illuminator
If lighting is poor, the AF-assist illuminator may light to assist the focus operation when the
shutter-release button is pressed halfway. The illuminator has a maximum range of about
1.9 m/6 ft. 2 in. (t) to 1.1 m/3 ft. 6 in. (v). The AF-assist illuminator can be turned off manually (c 123), although in this case the camera may not focus when lighting is poor.

The Flash Lamp
The flash lamp indicates flash status when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway.
• On: Flash will fire when picture is taken.
• Blinks: Flash charging. Wait a few seconds and

• Off: Flash will not fire when picture is taken.
k
Red-Eye Reduction
Basic Photography and Playback: Auto Mode
When using the flash at a wide-angle zoom position, reflections from dust particles in the air
may appear as bright spots in pictures. To reduce these reflections, set the flash to B (Off) or
zoom in on the subject.
The COOLPIX S7c is equipped with an advanced red-eye reduction system. Pre-flashes are
fired several times at low intensity before the main flash to reduce “red-eye.” If the camera
detects “red-eye” after a picture is taken, Nikon’s own In-Camera Red-Eye Fix processes the
image as it is recorded. Therefore, there is a slight delay before the shutter-release button
operates normally to take another picture.
• Not recommended for when shutter-release timing is essential.
• Red-eye reduction may not always produce the desired results.
• In some rare cases, other portions of pictures may be affected.
Use flash modes other than auto with red-eye reduction in above cases.

What is Wireless Transfer Mode?
COOLPIX S7c is equipped with a wireless transfer mode, which is based on
the IEEE 802.11b/g standard. This section describes how the wireless transfer
mode works using the wireless LAN communication feature, and also
describes the configuration necessary for wireless transfer mode.
Features of Wireless Transfer Mode
COOLPIX CONNECT
Pictures stored in the camera’s internal memory or on a memory card can be
viewed by your family and friends via e-mail and webpage. For more information on the COOLPIX CONNECT service, refer to “Uploading Pictures to
COOLPIX CONNECT” (c 145).
PC Connection
• Pictures stored in the camera’s internal memory or on a memory card can
be transferred to a computer via home wireless LAN.
• Just-taken pictures can be immediately transferred to a computer wirelessly connected.
Wireless Printing
Wireless Transfer Mode
• Pictures can be printed with a printer connected to a computer that is
wirelessly connected via home wireless LAN.
• Pictures can be directly transferred to a PictBridge-compatible printer and
printed using the optional wireless printer adapter PD-10.

Note on Wireless LAN Configuration
For more information on wireless LAN configuration, contact the manufacturer of the wireless
LAN adapter or access point, or see other commercially available references.
What is Wireless Transfer Mode?
l
Home Wireless LAN
• This refers to wireless LAN networks connected via ad-hoc mode or infrastructure mode at
home or at the office.
• If Internet connection is possible from the home wireless LAN (Infrastructure mode), you
can use the COOLPIX CONNECT service. However, if the home wireless LAN uses a proxy
server to connect to the Internet, the COOLPIX CONNECT service is not available.
l
Ad-hoc Mode and Infrastructure Mode
• Ad-hoc mode establishes a peer-to-peer (one-to-one) connection with a wireless LAN-capable device. With the
COOLPIX S7c’s wireless transfer mode, a peer-to-peer connection is established between the camera and computer.
• Infrastructure mode connects a wireless LAN-capable device to
a wireless LAN network via an access point. With the
COOLPIX S7c’s wireless transfer mode, this mode connects the
camera and computer via a wireless LAN access point.
l
The Wireless Camera Setup Utility
• To use wireless transfer mode (for configuration and transferring pictures), the Wireless
Camera Setup Utility 2.0 (Setup Utility hereafter) is necessary. Use the supplied Wireless
Camera Setup Utility/PictureProject Software CD to install the Setup Utility.
• The Setup Utility is used for configuring profiles, and must be installed to the computer
used for PC connection (c 130, 150). Also, the Setup Utility is used for renaming or deleting profiles, changing the destination folder when transferring pictures to the computer,
and switching the printer used for wireless printing.
• See the Quick Start Guide for more information on installing the Setup Utility.

Caring for the Camera
To ensure continued enjoyment of this Nikon product, observe the following
precautions when using or storing the device.
j
Keep dry
The device will be damaged if immersed in water or subjected to high humidity.
j
Do not drop
The product may malfunction if subjected to strong shock or vibration.
j
Handle the lens and all moving parts with care
Do not apply force to the lens, lens cover, monitor, memory card slot, or battery chamber.
These parts are easily damaged. Applying force to the lens cover could result in camera malfunction or damage to the lens. Should the monitor break, care should be taken to avoid
injury caused by broken glass and to prevent the liquid crystal from the display touching the
skin or entering the eyes or mouth.
j
Do not point the lens at strong light sources for extended periods
Avoid pointing the lens at the sun or other strong light sources for extended periods when
using or storing the camera. Intense light may cause deterioration of the CCD image sensor,
producing a white blur effect in photographs.
j
Keep away from strong magnetic fields
Do not use or store this device in the vicinity of equipment that generates strong electromagnetic radiation or magnetic fields. Strong static charges or the magnetic fields produced by
equipment such as radio transmitters could interfere with the monitor, damage data stored
on the memory card, or affect the product’s internal circuitry.
j
Avoid sudden changes in temperature
Sudden changes in temperature, such as occur when entering or leaving a heated building on
a cold day, can cause condensation to form inside the device. To prevent condensation, place
the device in a carrying case or a plastic bag before exposing it to sudden changes in temperature.
Technical Notes
162
j
Turn the product off before removing or disconnecting the power
source
Do not remove the battery while the product is on, or while images are being recorded or
deleted. Forcibly cutting power in these circumstances could result in loss of data or in damage to product memory or internal circuitry.
Caring for the Camera
j
The AF-Assist Illuminator LED
The light-emitting diode (LED; c 6, 123) used in the AFassist illuminator conforms to the following IEC standard:
k
The Battery
• Check the battery level when taking the camera out and charge the battery if necessary
(c 18). Do not continue charging once the battery is fully charged, as this will result in
reduced battery performance. If possible, carry a fully charged spare battery when taking
pictures on important occasions.
• Do not use the battery at ambient temperatures below 0 °C (32 °F) or above 40 °C
(104 °F). During charging, the temperature should be in the vicinity of 5 to 35 °C (41 to
95 °F). Note that the battery may become hot during use; wait for the battery to cool
before charging. Failure to observe these precautions could damage the battery, impair its
performance, or prevent it from charging normally.
• On cold days, the capacity of batteries tends to decrease. Be sure that the battery is fully
charged before heading outside to take pictures in cold weather. Keep spare batteries in a
warm place and exchange as necessary. Once warmed, a cold battery may recover some of
its charge.
• Dirt on the battery terminals can prevent the camera from functioning.
• When the battery is not in use, remove it from the camera or battery charger and replace
the terminal cover. The camera and battery charger draw minute amounts of current even
when off; if left in place, the battery could be drained to the point that it no longer functions. Turning the camera on or off while the battery is exhausted can result in reduced battery life. If the battery will not be used for an extended period, store it in a cool (15 to
25 °C / 59 to 77 °F), dry place. Recharge it at least once a year and run it flat before returning it to storage.
• Replace the battery when it no longer holds a charge. Used batteries are a valuable
resource. Please recycle used batteries in accordance with local regulations.

Caring for the Camera
Cleaning
Lens
Avoid touching glass parts with your fingers. Remove dust or lint with a
blower (typically a small device with a rubber bulb attached to one end
that is pumped to produce a stream of air out the other end). To remove
fingerprints or other stains that cannot be removed with a blower, wipe
the lens with a soft cloth, using a spiral motion that starts at the center of
the lens and working toward the edges. If this fails, clean the lens using a
cloth lightly dampened with commercial lens cleaner.
Monitor
Remove dust or lint with a blower. To remove fingerprints and other
stains, clean the monitor with a soft, dry cloth, being careful not to apply
pressure.
Body
Use a blower to remove dust, dirt, or sand then wipe gently with a soft,
dry cloth. After using the camera at the beach or seaside, wipe off any
sand or salt with a dry cloth lightly dampened with fresh water, then dry
thoroughly. Note that foreign matter inside the camera could cause damage not covered by the warranty.
Do not use alcohol, thinner, or other volatile chemicals.
Storage
Technical Notes
164
Turn the camera off when not in use. Check that the power-on lamp is off
before putting the camera away. Remove the battery if the camera will not
be used for an extended period. Do not store the camera with naptha or
camphor moth balls or in locations that:
• are next to equipment that produces strong electromagnetic fields, such as
televisions or radios
• are exposed to temperatures below –10 °C (14 °F) or above 50 °C (122 °F)
• are poorly ventilated or subject to humidities of over 60%
To prevent mold or mildew, take the camera out of storage at least once a
month. Turn the camera on and release the shutter a few times before putting the camera away again.
k
Notes on the Monitor
• The monitor may contain a few pixels that are always lit or that do not light. This is a characteristic common to all TFT LCD displays, and does not indicate a malfunction. Images
recorded using the product will not be affected.
• When framing bright subjects, vertical comet-like streaks that whiten toward either end
may appear in the display. This phenomenon, known as “smear,” does not appear in the
final photograph and does not indicate a malfunction. Some smear may appear in movies.
• Images in the monitor may be difficult to see under bright lighting.
• The monitor is lit by an LED backlight. Should the monitor begin to dim or flicker, contact
your Nikon service representative.
