UP AND RUNNING
ATTACHING THE CAMERA STRAP
Always keep the camera strap around your neck in the event that you drop the camera.
1. Pass the tip of the strap through the cameras strap eyelet from below. Attach the strap so the tip comes between the strap and the camera. 2. Thread the tip of the strap through the holder ring and the inside of the buckle and pull to tighten. Leave some slack in the camera strap so the tip may be threaded through the buckle easily. 3. Push the holder ring toward the strap eyelet to secure the strap to the camera. Repeat with the other end of the camera strap.

DIOPTER ADJUSTMENT

The viewfinder has a built-in diopter that can be adjusted between 2.5 to +1.0. While looking through the viewfinder, turn the diopter-adjustment dial until the viewfinder focus frame is sharp. The optional Eyepiece Corrector 1000 series diopters can be used if the adjustable viewfinder diopter is not sufficient.

CHARGING THE BATTERY

Before the camera can be used, the lithium-ion battery must be charged. Before charging the battery, read the safety warnings on page 4 of this manual. Only recharge the battery with the supplied battery charger. The battery should be recharged before each shooting session. See page 140 for battery care and storage. Plug the power cord into the back of the charger unit (1). Plug the other end of the cord into a live household outlet. The included AC cord is designed for the current of the sales region. Only use the cord in the region it was purchased. For more on the AC cable, see page 113.
With the battery contacts toward the charger, align the channels on the bottom of the battery with the tabs on the charger unit. Slide the battery into the unit.
The indicator lamp (2) glows to show the battery is charging. The lamp goes out when the battery is charged. Charging time is approximately 150 minutes.
Slide and lift the battery to remove it from the charger. Unplug the power cord from the outlet.

GETTING

INSTALLING AND CHANGING THE BATTERY
This digital camera uses one NP-400 lithium-ion battery. Before using the battery, read the safety warnings on pages 4 of this manual. When replacing batteries, the camera should be off.

44 ADVANCED

By pressing and holding the AEL button (1), continuous meter readings are displayed on the Ev scales. Two indices can be displayed. The fixed index shows the meter reading made when the AEL button is pressed. The other index shows any changes in the metered area. The fixed index is in reference to the selected metering mode (p. 59). The other index uses the spot metering area to determine the reading. Spot metering area When using flash with manual exposure, the shutter speed cannot exceed the flash-sync speed (p. 42). Flash range is dependent on the aperture (p. 55).

BULB EXPOSURES

Bulb photographs can be taken in the manual-exposure mode (M). The use of a tripod, remote cord, and eyepiece cap (p. 111) is recommended. The cameras exposure system cannot be used to calculate bulb exposures. The use of a separate light meter is recommended. Anti-Shake is disabled. 1. Set the appropriate aperture required for the exposure. 2. Decrease the shutter-speed until BULB is displayed. 3. To take the picture, press and hold the shutter-release button for the duration of the exposure. Releasing the shutter button ends the exposure. The monitor is blank during the exposure and remains blank after the exposure for up to 30 seconds while noise-reduction processing is applied to the image.
EXPOSURE LOCK - AEL BUTTON
The AE lock button locks the automatic exposure system without activating the AF system. This function allows the exposure to be set by a gray card or reference target outside the scene. When using flash in the auto recording, P, A, or digital subject program exposure modes, slow-shutter sync is active (p. 47). The operation of the AE lock button can be changed in section 1 of the custom menu (p. 94).
Frame the exposure target in the viewfinder depending on the metering mode in use (p. 59). Press and hold the AE lock button (1) to lock the exposure; the shutter speed and aperture are displayed and the AEL indicator is displayed in the viewfinder and on the monitor. Release the button to cancel the lock.

Spot metering area

While holding the AEL button, place the subject in the focus frame and press the shutter-release button partway down to focus (2). Press the shutter-release button down all the way to take the picture. The exposure remains locked after the picture is taken if the AEL button is not released.

AEL indicator Ev scale

While the exposure is locked, the camera meter is still active. The viewfinder and monitor Ev scale shows the difference between the locked exposure and the current light level measured with the meter. Spot metering is used. When the monitor and viewfinder Ev scale indicates 0, the locked exposure shown in the shutter-speed and aperture displays is the same as the exposure determined by the spot-metering area.

The metered area is 1.0Ev less () than the locked exposure. The arrow indicates the metered exposure is 2.3Ev more (+) or less () than the locked exposure. The blinking arrow indicates the metered exposure is 2.7Ev or greater than the locked exposure.

SLOW SYNC.

When using flash, pressing the AEL button activates the slow-sync. function; slow sync. is not available in S and M exposure modes. Slow sync. balances the ambient light exposure with the flash exposure so the background is recorded with the subject. When the AEL button is pressed and held, the ambient light exposure is determined and the flash exposure is based on the locked aperture setting. The use of a tripod is recommended with slow-sync. exposures.

SPOT-AF BUTTON

Spot AF can be used at any time. With the spot AF area placed on the subject, press and hold the central button of the controller to focus (1). The viewfinder focus signal confirms focus and the spot AF indicator (2) is displayed on the monitor. Pressing and holding the four-way controller key activates and locks focus with the wide focus area. Compose the image in the viewfinder and press the shutter-release button all the way down to take the picture. Focus remains locked after the picture is taken until the central controller button is released. Spot AF area Focus signal

EXPOSURE COMPENSATION

When using auto recording, P, A, and S exposure modes or a digital subject program, the exposure can be compensated. To compensate the ambient exposure, press and hold the exposure-compensation button and turn the control dial; the degree of compensation is displayed on the monitor and viewfinder Ev scales.
The exposure is compensated by -1.0Ev. After the setting is made, the shutter-speed and aperture displays indicate the actual exposure. Because exposure compensation uses 0.3Ev increments, lens apertures may not be displayed correctly. Sometimes the cameras exposure meter is deceived by high key or low key subjects. In the example below, the dark water caused the camera to overexpose the image making it bright and washed-out. By compensating the exposure, detail is brought out in the leaves, and the stones and water appear richer.

A SHORT GUIDE TO PHOTOGRAPHY
Photography can be a rewarding pursuit. It is a broad and disciplined field that can take years to master. But the pleasure in making photographs and the joy of capturing a magical moment cannot be compared. The guide is an introduction to some basic photographic principles. The lens aperture controls not only exposure, but also depth of field; the area between the closest object in focus and the furthest object in focus. The larger the aperture value, the greater the depth of field and the longer the shutter speed needed to make the exposure. The smaller the aperture value, the shallower the depth of field and the faster the shutter speed needed to make the exposure. Usually landscape photographs use a large depth of field (large aperture value) to keep the foreground and background in focus, and portraits use a shallow depth of field (small aperture value) to separate the subject from the background. Depth of field also changes with focal length. The smaller the focal length, the greater the depth of field; the longer the focal length, the shallower the depth of field. The shutter controls not only exposure, but also the ability to stop motion. Fast shutter speeds are used in sport photography to stop action. Slow shutter speeds can be used to show the flow of motion such as water cascading over a waterfall. The use of a tripod is recommended with slow shutter speeds. For critical work, take a test photograph and view the result in playback. The image can be deleted if not acceptable

A SHORT

GUIDE TO PHOTOGRAPHY

LIGHT SOURCES AND COLOR

The human eye adapts itself extremely well under different conditions. The paper of this manual you are reading looks white regardless of the type of lighting. Photographic systems are much less flexible. As the light source changes, so does the overall color of a scene - fluorescent office ceiling lights create a green cast to pictures, regular household tungsten light bulbs make everything red. Like your eyes, the cameras whitebalance controls adjust for different lighting to make natural looking pictures. The most common source of light, our sun, changes color depending on the time of day and the atmospheric conditions. The sun is of course very warm near the horizon and very blue at noon. The daylight preset white-balance setting is for beautiful sunny days. When the weather is overcast, the color is cooler and the cloudy setting is appropriate. When the main light source is skylight, light from the blue sky rather than the direct light of the sun, the resulting color is very blue. The shade preset white-balance is designed for this condition. Artificial lighting is more consistent but shows variations. Tungsten lamps become warmer as their wattage decreases. And fluorescent lamps come in classifications that define their color. The preset white balance settings can be adjusted to match the change in these light sources. Some artificial lighting have a discontinuous spectrum that create very unnatural color in a photograph. White balance cannot correct high-energy vapor lighting: sodium-vapor (yellow highway lights), or mercury vapor. For portraits under these lighting conditions, the flash can be used to overpower the ambient light. With landscapes containing these types of lights, set the white balance to the preset daylight setting.

INSTANT PLAYBACK
After an image is captured, it can be displayed on the monitors for two, five, or ten seconds before being saved. The last image of a continuous-advance or continousadvance bracketing series is displayed. Instant playback is activated and the length of the playback period is set with the instant-playback option in section 1 of the recording menu (p. 70).
During the instant playback period, many of the playback Display button functions are available. The displayed images can be deleted using the delete button (p. 36). An images can be magnified with the enlarge button (p. 38). The information display can be turned off and on with the display button, and the histogram can be displayed using the up key of the controller (p. 35). When using continuous advance or continuous-advance bracketing, use the left/right controller keys or turn the control dial to display the frames in the series; playback mode is active and all images on the memory card can be viewed and the playback menu Delete button opened. Enlarge button Press the shutter-release button partway down or press the playback button to return to the recording mode.

NOISE REDUCTION

This function reduces the affect of dark noise with exposures of one second or longer. Processing is applied to each image after it is captured. The monitor remains blank during processing for a maximum of 30 seconds. This can be turned off in section 1 of the recording menu (p. 70). Noise reduction uses dark-frame subtraction. Noise reduction is not applied to a continuous-advance series.

FLASH MODES

The flash mode can be changed in section 2 of the recording menu (p. 70). For the flash to fire, the built-in unit must be manually raised; lower the flash to prevent it from firing. The auto-white-balance setting gives priority to the flashs color temperature. If another type of white balance is used, priority is given to the active settings color temperature. Fill-flash - used as the main or supplementary light. In low-light conditions, the flash acts as the main source of illumination and overpowers the ambient light. Under strong sunlight or in backlit situations, the fill-flash can reduce harsh shadows.

Fill-flash

Red-eye reduction - used when taking photographs of people or animals in low-light conditions. The red-eye effect is caused by light reflected from the retina of the eye. The camera fires several pre-flashes before the main flash burst to contract the pupils of the subjects eyes. Rear flash sync - used with long exposures to make trailing lights or blurring appear to follow rather than proceed the subject. The effect is not apparent if the shutter speed is too fast and stops the subjects motion. When the shutter is released, a pre-flash fires. This pre-flash is not for exposure, but for metering. The flash fires again just before the shutter closes. Wireless / Remote flash - allows the camera to control an off-camera flash unit without the need of a cable. See page 76.

WIRELESS / REMOTE FLASH
On-camera flash Wireless/Remote flash allows the camera to control an off-camera Program/Maxxum 5600HS(D) and 3600HS(D) flash unit without the need of a cable. Single or multiple flash units can be placed around the subject to create different lighting effects. The cameras built-in flash fires to control the offcamera flash units rather than to illuminate the subject.

Set the camera to the wireless flash mode in section 2 of the recording menu (p. 70). This simultaneously set a the flash to the wireless mode and sets the camera to the flashs wireless channel. 4. Press and hold the mounting-foot-release button on the flash unit to disengage the safety catch and remove the flash unit from the camera.
Raise the built-in flash on the camera and position the camera and flash around the subject. See the following page for operating ranges.
Make sure no objects come between the camera and flash unit. The flash units can be test fired by pressing the AEL button on the camera. AEL button setup in section 1 of the custom menu should be set to one of the hold options. If the flash does not fire, change the camera, flash, or subject position. The slow shutter sync is active in auto recording, P, A, and digital subject program exposure modes (p. 47). When the 5600HS(D) and 3600HS(D) flash is charged, the AF illuminator on the front of the unit blinks. The viewfinder flash signal shows the status of the camera flash (p. 31). Take a picture as described in the basic recording section on page 28. Wireless/Remote flash performs best under subdued light or interior lighting. Under bright light sources, the flash may not be able to detect the control signals from the cameras built-in flash. When not using off-camera flash units, always turn off the wireless flash mode in section 2 of the recording menu, or inaccurate flash exposures will result. The 5600HS(D) and 3600HS(D) flash units can be reset simultaneously with the camera. Simply mount the flash unit in the accessory shoe and change the wireless flash mode setting on the menu to another flash mode. High-speed sync. is available, see page 112.

Konica Minolta History

On February 20th, 1962, John Glenn became the first American to orbit the Earth. On board his Friendship 7 spacecraft was a Minolta Hi-matic camera to record that historic event. The 4 hour, 55 minute, and 23 second flight orbited the Earth three times at an average speed of 28,000 kph (17,500 mph). Mr. Glenn visited our Sakai camera factory in Japan on May 24th, 1963 to plant a palm tree to celebrate the occasion. The palm tree is still in the courtyard of the factory and stands over eight meters tall (26ft). The camera? It was not lost. It is on display at the Smithsonian Institutions National Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C. This and other objects from John Glenns Friendship 7 Mercury flight can be found in galley 210, Apollo to the Moon.

BOUNCE FLASH

Direct flash illumination can cause harsh shadows on the subject and background. Bounce flash reflects the light from the ceiling to create soft diffuse illumination.

ADVANCED OPERATION

The section describes advanced flash photography techniques and accessories.
Bounce flash Normal flash

Page 24

Tilt the flash towards the ceiling.
The flash has a click stop at 60. The bounce head can be set in any position between 0 and 90.
Adjusting the Bounce Angle
The angle of the bounce head is important. If the bounce angle is too low, the subject will be illuminated by both directly with the flash and indirectly with the reflected light from the ceiling resulting in a harsh and unevenly lit photograph. Determine the bounce angle in reference to the distance to the reflective surface, the distance from the camera to the subject, and the angle of view of the lens.
With bounce flash, using ADI metering can result in incorrect exposure. Set the flash metering-mode switch to TTL. Use a white ceiling or wall to reflect the flash. The color of a surface will affect the color of the flash illumination. High ceilings or highly reflective surfaces such as glass are not suitable for bounce flash.

CAUTIONS WHILE HANDLING

During Photography

This flash unit has an intense light output and should not be fired directly in front of anyone's eyes. To prevent condensation from forming, place the flash in a sealed plastic bag when bringing it from a cold environment to a warm one. Allow it to come to room temperature before removing it from the bag. Battery capacity decreases at colder temperatures. Keep your flash and spare batteries in a warm inside pocket when shooting in cold weather. Batteries will regain some of their capacity when warmed to normal operating temperatures. This flash unit is not waterproof. Care should be taken not to expose the unit to water. Care should be taken when used on a beach or near water. Exposure to water, sand, dust, or salt may damage the product.

Batteries

Do not store the flash unit with the alkaline batteries inside. Leakage from the batteries may damage the battery chamber. When using alkaline batteries, temperature and storage conditions can affect performance and may require more than 30 seconds for the flash to charge. Battery performance can be restored by using the flash a few times or turning the flash unit on and off several times. Replace the battery if performance does not improve. If lithium batteries become hot due to high temperatures or repeated use, an internal safety circuit shuts them down. Wait until the batteries cool before using the flash again. Nickel-metal hydride batteries can lose power suddenly. If battery performance drops while using the batteries, recharge them. Depending on the time elapsed since the battery was manufactured, the flash performance for new batteries may differ from the values shown in the technical specification section.

Maintenance

Clean by wiping with a soft, clean cloth. If the flash has been in contact with sand, wiping will cause surface damage. Gently remove sand particles using a blower before wiping. Do not use organic solvents (paint thinners or benzene) to clean the product.

Questions and Service Temperature
Flash unit operating temperature: 20C to 50C, 4F to 122F. Do not leave the flash unit exposed extremely high temperatures (eg. direct sunlight inside motor vehicles), or in conditions of high humidity.
