On the “Memory Stick Duo”

Notes on using the Memory Stick Duo

Adaptor (not supplied)

• To use a “Memory Stick Duo” with a “Memory

Stick” compliant device, be sure to insert the

“Memory Stick Duo” into a Memory Stick Duo

Adaptor. If you insert a “Memory Stick Duo” into a “Memory Stick” compliant device without a Memory Stick Duo Adaptor, you might not be able to remove it from the device.

• When inserting a “Memory Stick Duo” into a

Memory Stick Duo Adaptor, make sure the

“Memory Stick Duo” is inserted facing in the correct direction, then insert it all the way in.

Incorrect insertion may result in a malfunction.

• When using a “Memory Stick Duo” inserted into a Memory Stick Duo Adaptor with a

“Memory Stick” compliant device, make sure that the Memory Stick Duo Adaptor is inserted facing the correct direction. Note that improper use may damage the equipment.

• Do not insert a Memory Stick Duo Adaptor into a “Memory Stick” compliant device without a

“Memory Stick Duo” attached. Doing so may result in malfunction of the unit.

Notes on using “Memory Stick PRO

Duo” (not supplied)

“Memory Stick PRO Duo” with a capacity up to

8 GB have been confirmed to operate properly with the camera.

Notes on using “Memory Stick Micro”

(not supplied)

• To use a “Memory Stick Micro” with the camera, be sure to insert the “Memory Stick

Micro” into a Duo-sized “M2” Adaptor. If you insert a “Memory Stick Micro” into the camera without a Duo-sized “M2” Adaptor, you might not be able to remove it from the camera.

• Do not leave the “Memory Stick Micro” within the reach of small children. They might accidentally swallow it.

On the battery pack

On charging the battery pack

We recommend charging the battery pack in an ambient temperature of between 10°C to 30°C

(50°F to 86°F). The battery pack may not be fully charged in temperatures outside this range.

Effective use of the battery pack

• Battery performance decreases in low temperature surroundings. So in cold places, the operational time of the battery pack is shorter.

We recommend the following to ensure longer battery pack use:

– Put the battery pack in a pocket close to your body to warm it up, and insert it in the camera immediately before you start shooting.

• The battery pack will run out quickly if you use the flash or zoom frequently.

• We recommend having spare battery packs handy for two or three times the expected shooting time, and making trial shots before taking the actual shots.

• Do not expose the battery pack to water. The battery pack is not water-resistant.

• Do not leave the battery pack in extremely hot places, such as in a car or under direct sunlight.

How to store the battery pack

• Fully discharge the battery pack before storing and store it in a cool, dry place. To maintain the battery pack's function, fully charge the battery pack and then fully discharge it on the camera at least once a year while storing.

• To use the battery pack up, leave the camera in

slide show (page 53) playback mode until the

power goes off.

• To prevent staining the terminal, shortcircuiting, etc., be sure to use a supplied battery case when carrying and storing.

On battery life

• The battery life is limited. Battery capacity decreases over time and through repeated use. If decreased usage time between charges becomes significant, it is probably time to replace it with a new one.

• The battery life varies according to how it is stored and the operating conditions and environment in which each battery pack is used.

On the battery charger

On the battery charger

• Do not charge any other battery pack other than the NP-BG type battery packs in the battery charger supplied with the camera. Batteries other than the specified kind may leak, overheat, or explode if you attempt to charge them, posing a risk of injury from electrocution and burns.

• Remove the charged battery pack from the battery charger. If you leave the charged battery pack in the charger, battery life may be shortened.

• When the CHARGE lamp flashes, remove the battery pack being charged, and then inserting the same battery pack into the camera again until it clicks. When the CHARGE lamp flashes again, this may indicate a battery error or that a battery pack other than the specified type has been inserted. Check that the battery pack is the specified type. If the battery pack is the specified type, remove the battery pack, replace it with new one or another one and check if the battery charger operates correctly. If the battery charger operates correctly, a battery error may have occurred.
