Connecting to a Power Source
INFORMATION
Important information about battery usage
It is easy to buy alkaline batteries. However, the duration for using batteries varies in
accordance with the battery manufacturer or the photographic conditions.
When the camera is not used, turn off the camera power.
Do not recharge the non rechargeable batteries. It may cause an explosion.
Please remove the batteries if the camera will not be used for long periods.
Batteries can lose power over time and are prone to leaking if kept inside the camera.
We recommend high capacity ALKALINE batteries as manganese batteries cannot
deliver sufficient power.
Low temperatures (below 0 ) can affect the performance of the batteries and you may
experience reduced battery life.
Batteries will usually recover at normal temperatures.
Do not use old and new batteries at the same time.
During extended use of the camera, the camera body may become warm.
This is perfectly normal.
Using the AC power adapter (3.3V 2.0A)
If you have access to a mains supply, using an AC
Adapter (3.3V 2.0A) allows the camera to be used for
long periods of time.
Plug the adapter into the connection point
(DC IN 3.3V) on the camera.
Remove the batteries from the camera when using an
AC adapter.
DANGER
Always turn off the power before taking the AC adapter out of the mains supply.
As with all mains powered devices, safety is important. Ensure that neither the camera
nor adapter comes into contact with water or metallic materials.
Please ensure that you use an AC adapter (3.3V 2.0A) with the correct specification for
the camera. Failure to do so may affect your warranty.

Instructions on how to use the memory card
The camera comes with 32MB of internal flash memory, allowing you to store images and
movie clips in the camera. However, you can expand the memory capacity by using an
optional memory card so that you can store more images and movie clips.
Maintenance of the memory card
Be sure to format the memory card (see p. 59) if you are using a newly purchased memory
for the first time, if it contains data that the camera cannot recognize, or if it contains images
captured with a different camera.
Turn off the camera power whenever the memory card is being inserted or removed.
Repeated use of the memory card will eventually reduce the memory card’s performance.
Should this be the case, you will need to purchase a new memory card. Wear and tear on the
memory card is not covered by the Samsung warranty.
The memory card is an electronic precision device. Do not bend, drop or subject the memory
card to any heavy impact.

Do not allow the memory card to become dirty or to come into contact with any liquid. Should
this happen, clean the memory card with a soft cloth.
Please keep the memory card in its case when not in use.
During and after periods of extended use, you may notice that the memory card is warm.
This is perfectly normal.
Do not use a memory card that is used in another digital camera or memory card reader.
Do not use a memory card formatted by another digital camera or memory card reader.
Preserving the memory card data
If the memory card is subjected to any of the following, the recorded data may become
corrupted :
- When the memory card is used incorrectly.
- If the power is switched off or the memory card is removed while recording, deleting
(formatting) or reading.
Samsung cannot be held responsible for lost data.
It is advisable to copy important data onto other media as back-up e.g. floppy disks, hard
disks, CD etc.
If there is insufficient memory available :If you press the shutter button for the shot, a [CARD
FULL !] message will appear and the camera will not operate. To optimize the amount of
memory in the camera, replace the memory card or delete unnecessary images stored on
the memory.

flash(p.31), Spot metering(p.40) or Exposure compensation(p.35).
Avoid obstructing the lens or the flash when you capture an image.
As there can be some differences between what is seen through the Viewfinder and the
resulting image when taken at a range closer than 1.5m, it is recommended that you use the
LCD monitor to compose these shots.
Using the LCD monitor extensively will drain the batteries.
We recommend turning off the LCD monitor and using the optical viewfinder as often as
possible in order to extend battery life.
Under certain conditions the auto focus system may not perform as expected.
- When photographing a subject that has little contrast.
- If the subject is highly reflective or shiny.
- If the subject is moving at high speed.
- When there is strong reflected light, or when the background is very bright.
- When the subject matter has only horizontal lines or the subject is very narrow (such as a
stick or flagpole).
- When the surroundings are dark

INFORMATION
High resolution and picture quality increases file saving time, which increases stand-by time.
To take continuous shots, the number of available shots must be more than 2 because
the minimum numbers of continuous shots permitted are 2. To take the AEB shots, the
number of available shots must be more than 3 because of the same reason.
Camera shake can be a problem when using the AEB shooting mode and it takes time to

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 let the unit come into contact with dust, vinyl goods, or chemicals, such as
insecticides, for an extended 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.
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.
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 batteries and the memory card if you do not intend using the camera for
an extended period of time.
66
Important notes
If the camera is exposed to an electronic interference, it will turn itself off to protect the
memory card.
Camera Maintenance
