Notes on using your camera
Types of Memory Stick that can be used (not supplied)
The IC recording medium used by this camera is a Memory Stick. There are two types of Memory Stick.
Memory Stick: you can use a Memory Stick with your camera.
Carl Zeiss lens
This camera is equipped with a Carl Zeiss lens which is capable of reproducing sharp images with excellent contrast. The lens for this camera has been produced under a quality assurance system certified by Carl Zeiss in accordance with the quality standards of Carl Zeiss in Germany.

Memory Stick Duo: you can use a Memory Stick Duo by inserting it into a Memory Stick Duo Adaptor. The contents of the recording cannot be compensated for if recording or playback is not possible due to a malfunction of your camera or recording media, etc.
Back up recommendation
Memory Stick Duo Adaptor
For details on Memory Stick, see page 91. To avoid the potential risk of data loss, always copy (back up) data to other medium.
Back up of the internal memory
If you turn off the power by opening the battery/ Memory Stick cover, etc. during the access lamp is lit, the data in the internal memory may be corrupted. Be sure to back up the data to avoid the potential risk of data loss. See pages 23, 58 on how to back up the data.

On image data stored in the internal memory
We recommend that you copy (back up) data without fail using one of the following methods.
To copy (back up) data on a Memory Stick
Prepare a Memory Stick with a capacity of 32 MB or more, then perform the procedure explained in [Copy] (page 52).
The histogram also appears in the following cases, but you cannot adjust the exposure. When the mode dial is set to or M When playing back a single image During Quick Review
You can change the focus method. Use the menu when it is difficult to get the proper focus in auto focus mode.

Focuses automatically on a subject near the center of the frame.
Using this with the AF lock function lets you shoot in the desired image composition.
Focuses on the subject using a previously set distance to the subject. (Focus preset)
When shooting a subject through a net or through window glass, it is difficult to get the proper focus in auto focus mode. In these cases, use of [Focus] is convenient.
AF range finder frame
AF range finder frame indicator
Multi AF (Multipoint AF) (Still image ) (Movie )
Focuses automatically on a subject in all ranges of the finder frame.
This mode is useful when the subject is not in the center of the frame.
AF stands for Auto Focus. Distance setting information in [Focus] is approximate. If you point the lens up or down, the error increases. The distance selection is limited according to the Scene mode (page 27). When you are shooting movies, [Multi AF] is recommended as the AF works even with a certain amount of vibration. When you use [Digital Zoom] or [AF Illuminator], priority AF movement is given to subjects in or near the center of the frame. In this case the or indicator flashes and the AF range finder frame is not displayed.
z If the subject is out of focus When shooting with the subject at the edge of the frame (or the screen), or when using [Center AF], the camera may not focus on a subject at the edge of the frame. In a case like this, do as follows.
1 Recompose the shot so that the subject is centered in the AF range finder, and press the shutter button halfway down to focus on the subject (AF lock).

On Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries
Do not peel off the external seals or damage the batteries. Never use batteries from which the seals have been partially or completely removed, or batteries that have been split in any way. These may cause leakage, explosion, or heat-up of the battery, and personal scald or injury may be caused. These may cause a malfunction of the battery charger. Always carry the Nickel-Metal Hidride batteries in the battery case (supplied with DSC-S90/ S80). Otherwise, metallic objects may short the + and - ends, resulting in the risk of heating or fire. If the poles of the Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries are dirty, the batteries may not charge properly. Wipe them with a dry cloth, etc. At the time of purchase, or when the NickelMetal Hydride batteries have not been used for a long time, they may not full charge. This is typical of this type of battery, and is not a malfunction. If this happens, repeatedly using up the batteries fully, and then recharging them should correct the problem. If you recharge Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries before fully using up the existing charge, the low battery warning may be displayed sooner than expected. This is called the memory effect.* If this problem occurs, charging the batteries only after using up the existing charge will correct it. * The memory effect - the situation in which the capacity of the battery is temporarily lowered. To use up the batteries completely, put the camera in the slide show mode (page 40) and leave it that way until the batteries are used up. Do not mix new and used batteries. Do not expose the battery to water. The battery is not water-resistant.
Batteries you can use with your camera
HR 15/51:HR6 (size AA) Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries (2) NH-AA-DA (2) (supplied with DSC-S90/S80) NH-AA-2DB twin pack, etc. Battery pack NP-NH25 (supplied with DSCST80) R6 (size AA) alkaline batteries (2) (supplied with DSC-S60) ZR6 (size AA) Oxy Nickel Primary Battery (2)
Effective use of Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries
Batteries are discharged even when they are not used. We recommend you charge the batteries just before using them. Battery performance decreases in lowtemperature surroundings, and the battery life is shortened under such circumstances. To use the battery longer, we recommend you keep the battery in its case in a pocket close to your body to warm it, and insert it in your camera just before you start shooting. If the poles of the batteries and the terminals on the battery cover of the camera are dirty, the battery life may be extremely shortened. Occasionally wipe them with a dry cloth, etc. to keep them clean. If you shoot a lot using the flash and the zoom, the battery power will be used up faster. We recommend having spare batteries handy for two or three times the expected shooting time, and try test shooting before actually using the camera.
