Notes on using your camera
[ Internal memory and Memory Stick Duo back up
Do not turn off the camera or remove the battery pack or Memory Stick Duo while the access lamp is lighted, as the internal memory data or Memory Stick Duo data may be destroyed. Always protect your data by making a back up copy.
[ Notes on the LCD screen, the LCD finder and the lens
The LCD screen and the LCD finder are manufactured using extremely high-precision technology so over 99.99% of the pixels are operational for effective use. However, there may be some tiny black points and/or bright points (white, red, blue or green in color) that constantly appear on the LCD screen or the LCD finder. These points are normal in the manufacturing process and do not affect the recording in any way. When the battery level becomes low, the lens might stop moving. Insert a charged battery pack and turn on the camera again. Do not hold the camera by taking hold of the LCD screen.
[ Notes on recording/playback
Before you start recording, make a trial recording to make sure that the camera is working correctly. This camera is neither dust-proof, nor splashproof, nor water-proof. Read Precautions (page 36) before operating the camera. Be careful not to get the camera wet. Water entering the inside of the camera may cause malfunctions which in some cases may not be repairable. Do not aim the camera at the sun or other bright light. It may cause the malfunction of your camera. Do not use the camera near a location that generates strong radio waves or emits radiation. The camera may not be able to record or play back properly. Using the camera in sandy or dusty locations may cause malfunctions. If moisture condensation occurs, remove it before using the camera (page 36). Do not shake or strike the camera. In addition to malfunctions and an inability to record images, this may render the recording medium unusable, or cause image data breakdown, damage or loss. Clean the flash surface before use. The heat of flash emission may cause dirt on the flash surface to become discolored or to stick to the flash surface, resulting in insufficient light emission.
[ On image data compatibility
This camera conforms with DCF (Design rule for Camera File system) universal standard established by JEITA (Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association). Playback of images recorded with your camera on other equipment and playback of images recorded or edited with other equipment on your camera are not guaranteed.

Shoot dramatic close-ups and sharp fast-action shots with the 8.1 megapixel Cyber-shot DSC-H7 digital camera. The Carl Zeiss 15X optical zoom and Advanced Sports Mode with high shutter speed are perfect for crisp long shots and excellent detail when shooting at sporting events. Super SteadyShot image stabilization and high-sensitivity (ISO 3200) mode reduce blur when shooting without a flash and Face Detection technology brings out the best in faces. You can also manually control the exposure and focus of the DSC-H7, making it ideal for more artistic shots. And with HD (high definition) output, photos can look even more spectacular when you share them with friends and family on HDTV screens.
