This file format complies with the DCF(Design rule for Camera File system).

If you cannot obtain suitable exposure conditions, you can change the metering method to
take brighter pictures.
[MULTI] (
[SPOT] (

area. However, the calculation will be

biased towards the centre of the image
area. This is suitable for general use.
) : Only the rectangular area in the centre
of the LCD monitor will be metered for
[PROGRAM mode]
light. This is suitable when the subject in
the centre is exposed correctly, regardless of the back lighting.
INFORMATION
The default metering mode is Multi pattern metering.
If the subject is not the centre of the focus area, do not use the spot metering as this may
result in an exposure error. In this circumstance, It is better to use exposure compensation.
Continuous Shooting
Select the number of pictures in continuous shooting.
- [SINGLE]
: Take one picture only
- [CONTINUOUS] : Images will be taken continuously until the
shutter button is released. The shooting
capacity depends on the memory.
- [AEB]
: Take three pictures in a series in different
exposures: short exposure (-0.5EV),
standard exposure (0.0EV) and over
exposure (+0.5EV). Use the mode if it is
hard to decide exposure of the object.

[ PROGRAM mode ]
High resolution and picture quality increases file saving time, which increases stand-by
time.
If the [CONTINOUS] sub menu is selected, the flash will be off automatically.
If less than 3 pictures are available in the memory, the AEB shooting is not available.
It is best to use a tripod for the AEB shooting as the time to save each image file is longer
and the blurring caused by camera shake may occur.

You can adjust the sharpness of the picture you want to take.

Important notes
Be sure to observe the following precautions!
This unit contains precision electronic components. Do not use or store this unit in the
following locations.
- Areas exposed to severe changes in temperature and humidity.
- Areas exposed to dust and dirt.
- Areas exposed to direct sunlight or the inside of a vehicle in hot weather.
- Environments where there is high magnetism or excessive vibration.
- Areas with high explosives or highly flammable materials.
Do not leave this camera in places subject to dust, chemicals (like naphthalene and mothball),
high temperature and high humidity.
Keep this camera with silica gel in a hermetically sealed box when not planning to use the
camera for a long period of time
Sand can be particularly troublesome to cameras.
- Do not let sand get inside the unit when using it on beaches, coastal dunes, or other areas
where there is lots of sand.
- Doing so may result in failure or may permanently render the unit unusable.
Handling the camera
- Never drop the camera or subject it to severe shocks or vibrations.
- Prevent the large size LCD monitor from an impact. When this camera is not used, keep
this camera in the camera case.
- Avoid obstructing the lens or the flash when you capture an image.
- This camera is not waterproof.
To avoid dangerous electrical shocks, never hold or operate the camera with wet hands.
- If you use this camera in wet places, such as beach or pool, do not let water or sand get
inside the camera. Doing so may result in failure or may permanently damage the unit.
Extremes in temperature may cause problems.
- If the camera is transferred from a cold to a warm and humid environment, condensation
can form on the delicate electronic circuitry. If this occurs, turn the camera off and wait for at
least 1 hour until all moisture is dispersed. Moisture build up can also occur in the memory
card. If this happens, turn off the camera and remove the memory card. Wait until the
moisture has dispersed.
95
Important notes
Caution on Using the Lens
- If the lens is subjected to direct sunlight, it could result in discoloration and deterioration of
the image sensor.
- Pay attention not to get fingerprints or foreign substances on the surface of the lens.
If the digital camera is not used for a long period, an electric discharge can occur.
It is a good idea to remove the battery and the memory card if you do not intend using the
camera for an extended period of time.
If the camera is exposed to an electronic interference, it will turn itself off to protect the
memory card.
Camera Maintenance
- Use a soft brush (available from photo stores) to gently clean the lens and LCD assemblies.
If this does not work, lens-cleaning paper with lens cleaning fluid can be used.
Clean the camera body with a soft cloth. Do not allow this camera to come into contact with
solvent materials such as benzol, insecticide, thinners etc. This may damage the body shell
of the camera and also affect its performance. Rough handling can damage the LCD
monitor. Take care to avoid damage and keep the camera in its protective carry case at all
times when not in use.
Do not attempt to disassemble or modify the camera.
Under certain conditions, static electricity can cause the flash unit to fire. This is not harmful to
the camera and is not a malfunction.
Before an important event or going on a trip, you should check the camera condition.
- Take a picture for testing the camera condition and prepare extra battery.
- Samsung cannot be held responsible for camera malfunctions.
