Should you notice smoke or an unusual smell or noise, stop using the camera immediately, remove the battery taking care to avoid burns, and contact your nearest dealer or Olympus service center. Continued operation could result in fire or burns. (Remove the battery outdoors, away from anything combustible, and avoid touching it with your bare hands.)
Continued on next page
Be careful with the strap when carrying the camera as it can easily catch on stray objects, causing injury or damage. Do not leave the camera in places of high temperature. Avoid touching the battery with your bare hands when replacing it, as it may cause burns. Use only the specified AC adapter. Use of an unauthorized adapter may result in damage or malfunction of the camera or power source, leading to accidents. Olympus is not responsible for any damages arising from use of an unauthorized adapter. Avoid touching the metal parts on the outside of the camera for long periods of time. The camera becomes hot during continued use and prolonged contact with the metal parts may result in low temperature burns. When exposed to low temperature, the temperature of the camera exterior will also drop. This may cause injury by the skin adhering to the camera. To avoid low temperature burns or injury, wear gloves when handling the camera.
Conditions for use of the camera
This camera contains precision electronic parts. Avoid using or leaving the camera for long periods of time in the following places as this could result in failure or malfunction. Places of high temperature and high humidity or where the temperature and humidity fluctuate greatly, such as in direct sunlight, on the beach in summer, in a car with the windows closed, or next to air conditioning equipment or a humidifier Places where there is a lot of sand, dust or dirt Near fire Near water Places that are subject to considerable vibration Avoid dropping or hitting the camera or subjecting it to severe vibration or impact. Do not take pictures or leave the camera with the lens aimed directly at the sun. If the camera is subjected to a sudden temperature change, for example by bringing it from a cold place into a warm room, condensation may form on the inside. Place the camera in a plastic bag until the temperature difference has subsided. If the camera is left unused for a long period of time, mold may form, causing failure or malfunction. We recommend that you check that the camera is still working properly before using it.
The card will be ejected.

Zooming in on your subject
Using the zoom
You can zoom in on your subject using the optical zoom and digital zoom. With the optical zoom, the image is enlarged on the CCD when the lens magnification is changed, and the image is formed by all the CCD pixels. With the digital zoom, the area at the center of the image captured by the CCD is cropped and enlarged. Because digital zoom takes a small area of the picture and enlarges it, the picture becomes grainy as the digital zoom magnification increases.
Adjusting the color of a picture
The color of the subject differs depending on lighting conditions. For instance, when daylight, the setting sun or tungsten lighting are reflected on white paper, the shade of white produced will be slightly different for each. By adjusting the white balance, you can achieve more naturallooking colors.
AUTO 1 w x y The white balance is adjusted automatically for natural color, regardless of the light source. For natural colors under a clear sky. For natural colors under a cloudy sky. For natural colors under tungsten lighting. For natural colors under daylight fluorescent lighting. This type of lamp is used mainly in homes. For shooting under a neutral white fluorescent lamp.

A method for indicating film speed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) (ex. ISO100). Higher ISO values indicate greater sensitivity to light, so images can be exposed even in low-light conditions.
JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)
A compression format for still images. Photographs (pictures) taken using this camera are recorded onto the card in JPEG format. By downloading these images to a computer, users can edit them using graphics application software or view the images using an Internet web browser.
When shooting in dark places, shutter speeds become slower as there is less light focused on the CCD. During long exposures, signals are generated by parts of the CCD where no light is focused and are recorded on the picture as noise. When noise reduction works, the camera automatically reduces the noise to produce clearer images.
