I received this digital camera as a gift at Christmas, and so far I am extremely impressed. This digital SLR is a very good starter camera and could easily be used in a semi professional context if paired with a good lens.

I previously owned a big Panasonic brick digital camera and when that gave up I got this camera. I was given it as a present. This is a great little camera definitely one of the best models in its price range.

Excellent point and shoot camera. Largeish LCD and easy to remove text when required to see image detail. Image adjustments easily made. Brought this camera for my wife since I own a Fuji s9500. After taking a few shots, I was very impressed.

If you will not be using the camera for a long time Store the batteries in a cool and dry place with a relatively stable temperature. (Recommended temperature: 15oC 25oC (59oF 77oF), Recommended humidity: 40% 60%) Be sure to remove the batteries and the card from the camera. When the batteries are left inserted in the camera, the batteries are discharged since a weak electric current is passed even if the camera is turned off. (Refer to P15 for Ni-MH batteries.) When you keep the camera in a closet or a cabinet, we recommend storing it with the desiccant (silica gel).

: 1k>4k>8k : 8k>4k>1k

Using the Optical Zoom

You can make people and subjects appear closer with the 3 times optical zoom, and landscapes can be recorded in wide angle.
To make subjects appear further away use (Wide)
The optical zoom is set to Wide (1k) when the camera is turned on. The picture may have some distortion (typical example: vertical straight line bent outwards). This is due to the lens aberration, which is common to some extent with all photographic lenses. Distortion may be more visible when using a wider area of the zoom lens as you get closer to the subject. When using the zoom lens at high magnification, the quality of the picture can be enhanced if a tripod is used. At high magnification, even small movements can cause a slight decrease in picture sharpness. If you use the zoom function after focusing on the subject, focus on the subject again. When you record motion images, the zoom magnification is fixed to the value set at the start of recording. The lens is ejected or retracted according to the zoom position. Take care not to interrupt the motion of the lens while the zoom lever is rotated.
To make subjects appear closer use (Tele)
Taking Pictures using the Built-in Flash

The available flash range is an approximation. Refer to P33 for the focus range. Refer to P65 for the ISO sensitivity. If the ISO sensitivity is set to [AUTO], it is automatically adjusted from [ISO100] to [ISO400] when you use the flash. To avoid noise, we recommend decreasing the ISO sensitivity (P65) or setting [PICT.ADJ.] to [NATURAL]. (P68)
Shutter speed for each flash setting Flash setting : AUTO : AUTO/Red-eye reduction : Forced ON : Forced ON/Red-eye reduction : Slow sync./Red-eye reduction Shutter speed (Sec.) 1/60 1/2000 1/60 1/2000 1/60 1/2000 1/8 1/2000 1/8 1/2000 : Forced OFF 8 1/2000 (In [NIGHT SCENERY] in scene mode)
The shutter speed changes depending on the slow shutter setting. (P67) Do not stare at the photo flash from close proximity. If you bring the flash too close to the subjects, they may be distorted or discolored by its heat and lighting. Do not cover the photo flash with your fingers or any other items. While the flash is charged, the LCD monitor turns off and you cannot take pictures. The status indicator lights. [Except when the AC adaptor (DMW-AC1; optional) is used.] If the remaining battery power is low, the LCD monitor may be turned off for longer time. When you take a picture beyond the flash control range, the exposure may not be adjusted properly and the picture may become bright or dark. When you repeat taking a picture, recording may be disabled even if the flash is activated. Take a picture after the access indication disappears. When the jitter alert appears, we recommend using the flash. When you set to burst mode or auto bracket, only 1 picture is recorded for every flash activated. The flash icon turns red when activating the flash and pressing the shutter button halfway. When taking a picture with the flash, the white balance will be automatically adjusted [except for [ ] (Daylight)], but the white balance may not be properly adjusted if the flash level is insufficient. When the shutter speed is fast, the flash effect may not be sufficient.
Taking Pictures with the Self-timer
1 Select the self-timer mode.
The self-timer indicator A blinks and the shutter is activated after 10 seconds (or 2 seconds). If you press the [MENU] button when the self-timer is set, the self-timer setting is canceled.
: Self-timer set to 10 seconds ; : Self-timer set to 2 seconds ; No display: canceled

2 Take the picture.

When using a tripod or in other cases, setting the self-timer to 2 seconds is a convenient way to avoid the jitter caused by pressing the shutter button. When you press the shutter button fully with one stroke, the subject is automatically focused just before the recording. In simple mode [ ], the self-timer is fixed to 10 seconds. (P35) When you set the self-timer in the burst mode, the camera starts taking a picture 2 or 10 seconds after the shutter button is pressed. The number of pictures taken at a time is fixed to 3. We recommend using a tripod when recording with the self-timer. (When you use a tripod, make sure the tripod is stable with the camera attached to it.)

Hold down the shutter button fully to activate the burst mode. When the self-timer is used, the number of recordable pictures in burst mode is fixed to 3. If the flash is activated, you can record only 1 picture. When setting auto bracket and the burst mode simultaneously, auto bracket will be performed. The ways to control the exposure and the white balance vary depending on the burst mode setting. When the burst mode is set to [ ] or [ ], they are fixed to the values set for the first picture. (The burst speed is prioritized.) When the burst speed is set to [ ], they are adjusted each time you take a picture. When setting the burst mode, the auto review function is activated regardless of the setting on the auto review function. (The picture is not enlarged.) Moreover, the settings for the auto review function on the [SETUP] menu are disabled. Burst mode is not canceled when the camera is switched off. Burst mode will not perform as described if a MultiMediaCard is used in place of an SD Memory Card. The reading/writing speed of a MultiMediaCard is slower than that of an SD Memory Card.

Playing Back Pictures

When a card is not inserted, the picture data in the built-in memory appear. When a card is inserted, the picture data in the card appear. (P20) When you keep pressing 2/1, the number of files forwarded/rewound at a time is increased. If you release 2/1 and press them again, the files will be forwarded/rewound one by one. In review playback in the recording mode or multi playback, the picture can only be forwarded or rewound one by one. When you forward or rewind a large number of pictures, release 2/1 once before reaching the picture to be played back, then press 2/1 to forward/rewind pictures little by little.

1 Select the picture.

2: Play back the previous picture. 1: Play back the next picture. The last recorded picture will be played back first. When [ROTATE DISP.] (P71) is set to [ON], pictures recorded by holding the camera vertically are played back vertically.
Fast forwarding/Fast rewinding When you keep pressing 2/1 during playback, the file number and the page number are updated. If you release 2/1 when the number of the desired picture appears, you can play back the picture. 1: Fast forward 2: Fast rewind

This mode allows you to take close-up pictures of the subject, e.g. When taking pictures of flowers. You can take pictures approaching the subject at a distance up to 5 cm (0.16 feet) from the lens by rotating the zoom lever upmost to Wide (1k). Focus range

30 cm (0.98 feet)

5 cm (0.16 feet)
The economy mode is not activated in the following cases (The power save mode is activated.): While the menu screen is displayed While the self-timer is set When you use the AC adaptor (DMW-AC1; optional), the power save mode is not activated.
We recommend using a tripod. When the subject is close to the camera, the effective focus range (depth of field) is much narrowed. Therefore, you will have difficulty in focusing on the subject if the distance between the camera and the subject is changed after the subject is focused. When the camera lens is at a distance beyond the available range from the subject, the subject may not be focused even if the focus indication lights. The available flash range is about 30 cm (0.98 feet) 4.2 m (13.8 feet) (Wide). (This is applied when you set the ISO sensitivity to [AUTO].) When you take pictures at close range in macro mode, the resolution of the peripheral of the picture may be slightly decreased. However, this is not a malfunction.

Motion image mode

2 Press the shutter button halfway.
This mode allows you to record motion images.

1 Select [MOTION RATE].


AUTO 10fps 30fps OFF OFF

When the subject is focused, the focus indication A lights.
3 Press the shutter button fully to start the recording.
[10fps]: Recording motion images for a longer time is available though the quality will be less than the quality recorded at [30fps]. The file size is smaller, so the files are suitable to be attached to e-mails. [30fps]: The motion of the recorded image is smooth, but the file size is large. fps (frame per second); This refers to the number of frames used in 1 second. Close the menu by pressing the shutter button halfway or the [MENU] button after finishing the setting.
The remaining recording time (approximation) appears on the screen. By pressing the shutter button fully again, the recording stops. If the built-in memory or the card becomes full during recording, the camera stops recording automatically.

5-area-focusing: The camera focuses on any of 5 focus areas. You can record a picture in free composition without limiting the position of the subject.
3-area-focusing: The camera focuses on any of the left, center and right of the screen. This mode allows you to focus on the subject faster than any other modes in AF mode.
1-area-focusing: The camera focuses on the subject in AF area on the center of the screen.
Spot-focusing: The camera focuses on the limited and narrow area in the screen.
When setting to 3-area-focusing, pictures may become still while being focused on, however, this is not a malfunction. When using the digital zoom or when you take pictures in dark places, the AF area is displayed on the center of the screen with a size wider than usual.
Slow Shutter [SLOW SHUTTER]
The shutter speed can be automatically adjusted. However, if you want brighter pictures, you can manually select a slower shutter speed. This is especially effective if you want to take pictures where both the night landscape and the subject are bright, using [NIGHT PORTRAIT] in scene mode. (P57) The slow shutter speed values you can select are: [1/8 ], [1/4 ], [1/2 ] and [1 ]. Slow shutter setting Brightness Jitter Example 1/8 Darker Less 1 Brighter More
When multiple AF areas (max. 5 areas) light at the same time, the camera is focusing on all the AF areas. The focus position is not predetermined because it is set to the position that the camera automatically determines at the time of focusing. If you want to determine the focus position to take pictures, switch the AF mode to 1-area-focusing mode.
Usually, set to [1/8 ] to take pictures. (When you select slow shutter speed values other than [1/8 ], [ ] appears on the lower left of the LCD monitor.) When you set shutter speed slower on [SLOW SHUTTER], we recommend using a tripod because jitters become easier to occur. You cannot set the slow shutter in [NIGHT SCENERY] and [FIREWORKS] in scene mode. (P57)

Digital Zoom [D.ZOOM]

Color Effect [COL.EFFECT]
It is possible to further magnify a subject already magnified 3 times with the optical zoom 4 more times with the digital zoom, thereby reaching a maximum of 12 times. Entering the digital zoom range When you rotate the zoom lever to the extreme Tele position, the on-screen zoom indication may momentarily pause. This is not a malfunction. You can enter the digital zoom range by continuously rotating the zoom lever to Tele or releasing the zoom lever once and then rotate it to Tele again.
