Battery handling precautions
Follow these important guidelines to prevent batteries from leaking, overheating, burning, exploding, or causing electrical shocks or burns.
When using NiMH batteries (included in some areas), use only the Olympus brand NiMH batteries and fitting charger. Never heat or incinerate batteries. Take precautions when carrying or storing batteries to prevent them from coming into contact with any metal objects such as jewelry, pins, fasteners, etc. Never store batteries where they will be exposed to direct sunlight, or subjected to high temperatures in a hot vehicle, near a heat source, etc. To prevent causing battery leaks or damaging their terminals, carefully follow all instructions regarding the use of batteries. Never attempt to disassemble a battery or modify it in any way, by soldering, etc. Never attempt to connect a battery directly to a power outlet, or to a cigarette lighter in a vehicle. If battery fluid gets into your eyes, flush your eyes immediately with clear, cold running water and seek medical attention immediately. Always store batteries out of the reach of small children. If a child accidentally swallows a battery, seek medical attention immediately.

Keep batteries dry at all times. Never allow them to come into contact with fresh or salt water. To prevent batteries from leaking, overheating, or causing a fire or explosion, use only batteries recommended for use with this product. Never mix batteries (old and new batteries, charged and uncharged batteries, batteries of different manufacture or capacity, etc.). Never attempt to charge alkaline, lithium or CR-V3 lithium battery packs. Insert the battery carefully as described in the operating instructions. Never load the battery with its +/- terminals reversed. Never force the battery into the battery compartment. Do not use batteries if their body is not covered by the insulating sheet or if the sheet is torn, as this may cause fluid leaks, fire, or injury. Do not use these batteries even if they were purchased in this condition.

Page 12

The following AA (R6) batteries cannot be used.
Batteries whose bodies are only partially or not at all covered by an insulating sheet.
Batteries whose terminals are raised, but not covered by an insulating sheet.
Batteries whose terminals are flat and not completely covered by an insulating sheet. (Such batteries cannot be used even if the terminals are partially covered.)
If NiMH batteries (included in some areas) are not charged within the specified time, stop charging them and do not use them. Do not use a battery if it is cracked or broken. If a battery leaks, becomes discolored or deformed, or becomes abnormal in any other way during operation, stop using the camera and consult your dealer or an authorized Olympus service center. Continued use may result in fire or electric shock. If a battery leaks fluid onto your clothing or skin, remove the clothing and flush the affected area with clean, running cold water immediately. If the fluid burns your skin, seek medical attention immediately. Never attempt to modify the battery compartment on the camera, never insert anything (other than the recommended battery) into the battery compartment.

Take the picture.
Press the shutter button fully.
The orange lamp on the camera blinks while the picture is recorded.

Memory gauge

Press the shutter button gently. If it is pressed forcefully, the camera may move causing the picture to blur. Recorded pictures are saved in the camera regardless of whether the camera is turned off or the batteries are replaced or removed. Never open the battery compartment/card cover, remove the batteries or disconnect the AC adapter while the orange lamp is blinking. Doing so could destroy stored pictures and prevent storage of pictures you have just taken. When taking pictures against strong backlight, the area of the picture in shadow may appear colored.
Every time you press the shutter button, the memory gauge lights indicating that the picture you have just taken is being recorded. The memory gauge changes according to how many pictures the camera is processing. This indicator is not displayed while recording movies.
