Instructions on how to use the memory card

Be sure to format the memory card (see p.84) if you are using a newly purchased memory card for the fi rst time, if it contains data that the camera cannot recognise, 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 store the memory card in an environment with strong electronic or magnetic fi elds, e.g. near loud speakers or TV receivers.

Please do not use or store in an environment where there are extremes in temperature.

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. To use the memory card in this camera, format the memory card using this camera.

Do not use a memory card formatted by another digital camera or memory card reader.

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. fl oppy disks, hard disks, CD etc.

If there is insuffi cient memory available:

A [Memory Full!] message will appear and the camera will not operate.

To optimise the amount of memory in the camera, replace the memory card or delete unnecessary images stored on the memory card.

Don’t remove the memory card when the camera status lamp is blinking as this may cause damage to data in the memory card.

016

Instructions on how to use the memory card

The camera can use SD/ SDHC Memory Cards and MMC (Multi

Media Cards).

When using a 1GB SD memory, the specifi ed shooting capacity will be as follows. These fi gures are approximate as image capacities can be affected by variables such as subject matter and memory card type.

Card pins

Write protect switch

Images will be taken continuously until the Shutter button is released.

The shooting capacity depends on the memory.

Continuous shooting is available while pressing and holding the Shutter button (About 1.5 frames per second).

The shooting speed may get slower depending on the shooting environment or the number of shots.

Take three pictures in a series in different exposures: standard exposure (0.0EV), short exposure (-1/3EV) and over exposure (+1/3EV).

This takes 6 shots per second for up to 5 seconds, when the Shutter is pressed and held down. After completing the continuous shooting, images are saved automatically. The maximum number of shots is 30 and the image size is fi xed as VGA.

High resolution and picture quality increases fi le saving time, which increases stand-by time.

If the [Continuous], [High Speed], [AEB] or [Motion Capture] sub menu is selected, the fl ash will be off automatically.

If less than 30 pictures are available in the memory, the motion capture is not available.

It is best to use a tripod for the [AEB] shooting as the time to save each image fi le is longer and blurring caused by camera shake may occur.

In [Manual] mode, [High Speed], [AEB], and [Motion Capture] are disabled.

[Continuous], [High Speed] and [AEB] menus can be selected only when the shutter speed is faster than 1/4 second. If the shutter speed is slower than 1/4 second, it will be fixed with 1/4 second.

Description

The camera’s sensitivity is automatically changed by variables such as lighting value or subject brightness.

You use a faster (shorter) shutter speed while the same amount of light is present, by increasing the ISO sensitivity amount of light is present, by increasing the

ISO sensitivity. However, the image may be saturated in high luminance. The higher the ISO value, the higher the camera’s sensitivity to light and therefore the greater its capacity to take pictures in dark conditions.

However, the noise level in the image will increase as the ISO value increases, making the image appear coarse.

When the ISO 3200 menu is selected, the image size is fi xed to under 3M.

When [Motion Capture] is set, ISO speed will be set to Auto.

[ISO] is enabled only in [Program] or [Manual] mode.

In some conditions this function cannot work properly.

- When a person wears dark glasses or some part of the face is hidden.

- When the subject does not look at the camera.

- Camera doesn’t detect a face as the conditions are too dark or too bright.

- The distance between the camera and object is too great.

- If there is refl ection of the light or the back light that are too bright.

The maximum available Face Detection range is 2.5m (Wide).

The nearer the subject, the faster the camera can recognize the subject.

When using the digital zoom, [Face Detection] is not available.

In [Beauty Shot], [Frame Guide], [Portrait], and [Children] mode, the [Face Detection] function setting is set to its default value.

The camera takes only one picture if the eyes of the subject are open when the

Shutter button is pressed.

Detecting the smiling face or the blinking eyes may not be available if any of the following situations occurs:

- If the subject is wearing sunglasses.

- When the subject is not facing directly to the camera.

- If the environmental light is too bright or too dark to detect the face of the subject.

- When the camera is far from the subject. (Orange colored focusing mark)

- If there is refl ection of the light or the back light that are too bright.

Do not leave this camera in places subject to dust, chemicals (like naphthalene and mothballs), 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 camera 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 camera unusable.

Handling the camera

– Never drop the camera or subject it to severe shocks or vibrations.

– Protect the large size LCD monitor from an impact. When this camera is not used, keep it in the camera case.

– Avoid obstructing the lens or the fl ash when you capture an image.

Important notes

– 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 built up can also occur on the memory card. If this happens, turn off the camera and remove the memory card.

Wait until the moisture has dispersed before replacing the card in the camera.

Caution on Using the Lens

– If the lens is subjected to direct sunlight, it could result in the discoloration and deterioration of the image sensor.

– Take care not to get fi ngerprints 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 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 fl uid 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 fl ash unit to fi re. This is not harmful to the camera and is not a malfunction.

When images are uploaded or downloaded, the data transfer may be affected by static electricity. In this case, disconnect and re-connect the USB cable before trying the transfer again.

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.

The temperature of the surface increases if the camera is used for prolonged periods of time. This doesn’t affect the camera operation and is not a problem of the camera.

If the digital camera is not used for a long period, the date and time may adopt the default settings by automatical battery discharged. In this case, reset the date and time correctly before the recording
