Precautions
Camera Body Temperature
If your camera is used for prolonged periods, the camera body may
become warm. Please be aware of this and take care when operating
the camera for an extended period.
About the LCD monitor
The LCD monitor is produced with extremely high-precision
manufacturing techniques. With more than 99.99% of the pixels
operating to specifications, less than 0.01% of the pixels may
occasionally misfire or appear as black, red or green dots. This has no
effect on the recorded image and does not constitute a malfunction.
Notice: Please ensure that you read and follow the handling and
safety precautions on pages 5 to 9 of this guide before
attempting to use the camera.
Video Format
Please set the camera’s video signal format to the one used in your
region before using it with a TV monitor (p. 82).
Language Setting
Please see page 83 to change the language setting.
Charging the Date/Time Battery
• The camera has a built-in rechargeable lithium battery that
maintains the date, time and other camera settings. This battery
recharges when the main battery pack is inserted into the
camera. When you first purchase the camera, place a charged
battery pack in it or use the AC adapter kit (sold separately) for
at least 4 hours to charge the date / time battery. It will charge
even when the camera power is set to Off.
• If the Set Date/Time menu appears when the camera power is
turned on, it means that the date/time battery charge is
depleted. Recharge it as described above.

Preventing Malfunctions
Avoid Strong Magnetic Fields
Never place the camera in close proximity to electric motors or other
equipment generating strong electromagnetic fields. Exposure to
strong magnetic fields may cause malfunctions or corrupt image data.
Avoid Condensation Related Problems
Moving the equipment rapidly between hot and cold temperatures
may cause condensation (water droplets) to form on its external and
internal surfaces. You can avoid this by placing the equipment in an
airtight, resealable plastic bag and letting it adjust to temperature
changes slowly before removing it from the bag.
If Condensation Forms Inside the Camera
Stop using the camera immediately if you detect condensation.
Continued use may damage the equipment. Remove the CF card and
battery or power cord (if connected) from the camera and wait until
the moisture evaporates completely before resuming use.
Extended Storage
When not using the camera for extended periods of time, remove the
battery pack and store the equipment in a safe place. Storing the camera
for extended periods with a battery pack installed will run down the
battery pack and may damage the camera. Please note, however, that
the date, time and other camera settings may reset to the default
settings if the battery pack has been removed for more than three
weeks. Follow the instructions in this guide to reset the desired settings.

Basic Functions
Using the Viewfinder
This camera is equipped with an optical viewfinder.
Align the square brackets (autofocus
metering field) inside the viewfinder
on the primary subject to compose
the image.
Viewfinder
About the Autofocus Function
This camera employs AiAF (artificial intelligence autofocus) technology
which uses a broad metering field to calculate the focal distance with
high precision. It delivers a crisp focus even when the photographic
subject is slightly off-center.
Using the Focus Lock
The following types of subject may not be suited to autofocus
photography. Use the focus lock in these situations.
• Subjects with extremely low contrast to the surroundings
• Subjects with extremely bright objects at the center of the composition
• Subjects that are moving quickly
• Subjects through glass
Try to shoot as close to the glass as possible to reduce the chances of
light reflecting back off the glass.
How to Use the Focus Lock
1. Aim the camera so that a subject at the same focal distance as the
main subject is centered in the brackets in the optical viewfinder.
2. Press the shutter button halfway and wait until two beeps sound.
3. Re-aim the camera to compose the shot as desired and press the
shutter button all the way.
Basic Functions
Using the LCD Monitor

• The flash fires twice. A preparatory pre-flash is followed by the
main flash. The exposure readings obtained from the subject
with the pre-flash are used to set the optimal flash intensity for
the main flash, which is used to shoot the image.
Red-Eye Reduction
• Light reflecting back from eyes can make them appear red when the
flash is used in dark areas. Under these conditions, use the red-eye
reduction mode. For this mode to be effective, the subject must be
looking right at the red-eye reduction lamp. Try asking them to look
directly at the lamp. Even better results can be obtained by shooting
with the lens set to the wide angle, increasing the lighting in indoor
settings or approaching closer to the subject.
• To improve the effect of the red-eye reduction lamp, the camera will
not shoot for approximately 1 second after the shutter button is fully
pressed. If you wish to shoot immediately, set the flash to any one of
the auto, on or off settings.

Shooting in Stitch Assist Mode
Stitch Assist mode can be used to shoot images, which overlap, and
which can later be merged to create one panoramic image on a
computer.
The overlapping seams of
several adjacent images can
be joined into a single
panoramic image.
• To merge the images on the computer, use PhotoStitch, one of
the supplied programs.
Framing a Subject
The PhotoStitch program detects the overlapping portions of
adjoining images and merges them. When shooting, try to include
a distinctive item (landmark) in the overlapping portions.
• Compose each frame so that it overlaps 30 to 50% of the
adjoining image. Try to keep the vertical misalignment to less than
10% of the image height.
• Do not include moving items in the overlap.
• Do not try to stitch images that include both distant and close
items. Objects may appear warped or doubled up.
Shooting
• Make the brightness in each image consistent. The final image
will appear unnatural if the difference in brightness is too great.
For good results, pan (swivel) the
camera to take successive shots.
To shoot close-ups, slide the camera
over the subject, keeping it parallel as
you move.
