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 screen is 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. 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.

[ 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 30) 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 30). 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.

[ Warning on copyright

Television programs, films, videotapes, and other materials may be copyrighted. Unauthorized recording of such materials may be contrary to the provisions of the copyright laws.

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: you cannot use a Memory Stick with your camera.
Notes on the LCD screen and lens
The LCD screen is 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. These points are normal in the manufacturing process and do not affect the recording in any way.
Other memory cards cannot be used.
For details on Memory Stick Duo, see page 113.
When using a Memory Stick Duo with Memory Stick compatible equipment
You can use the Memory Stick Duo by inserting it into the Memory Stick Duo Adaptor (not supplied).

Notes on the battery pack
Charge the battery pack (supplied) before using the camera for the first time. The battery pack can be charged even if it is not completely discharged. Also, even if the battery pack is not fully charged, you can use the partially charged capacity of the battery pack as is.
Exposing the LCD screen or the lens to direct sunlight for long periods may cause malfunctions. Be careful when placing the camera near a window or outdoors. Do not press against the LCD screen. The screen may be discolored and that may cause a malfunction. Images may trail across on the LCD screen in a cold location. This is not a malfunction. Be careful not to bump the movable lens, and be careful not to apply force to it.

To shoot a still image difficult to focus on t [Focus] (page 42) If the image looks blurred even after focusing, it may be because of camera shake. t See Hints for preventing blur (as follows).
Hints for preventing blur
Hold the camera steady, keeping your arms at your side. It is recommended to lean against a tree or a building nearby to steady yourself. Shooting with a 2-second delay self-timer or using a tripod is also effective. Use the flash when you shoot under a low light condition.
Exposure Adjusting the light intensity
You can create various images by adjusting the exposure and the ISO sensitivity. Exposure is the amount of light that the camera will receive when you release the shutter.

Exposure:

Shutter speed = Length of time the camera receives light Aperture = Size of the opening allowing light to pass through ISO sensitivity (Recommended Exposure Index) = Recording sensitivity
Overexposure = too much light Whitish image Correct exposure
The exposure is automatically set to the proper value in the auto adjustment mode. However, you can adjust it manually using the functions below. Adjusting EV: Allows you to adjust the exposure determined by the camera (pages 19, 41). Metering Mode: Allows you to change the part of the subject to be measured to determine the exposure (page 42).
Underexposure = too little light Darker image
Adjusting ISO Sensitivity (Recommended Exposure Index)
ISO sensitivity is a speed rating for recording media that incorporates an image sensor that receives light. Even when the exposure is the same, images differ depending on the ISO sensitivity. To adjust the ISO sensitivity, see page 41.
High ISO sensitivity Records a bright image even when shooting in a dark location. However, the image tends to become noisy. Low ISO sensitivity Records a smoother image. However, when the exposure is insufficient, the image may become darker.
On the effects of lighting
The apparent color of the subject is affected by the lighting conditions.
Example: The color of an image affected by light sources
Weather/lighting Characteristics of light
Daylight White (standard)

Because it takes about a second until the shutter clicks, hold the camera firmly to prevent the effects of vibration. Also, do not let the subject move. Red-eye reduction may not produce the desired effects depending on individual differences, the distance to the subject, if the subject does not see the pre-strobe, or other conditions. In such a case, you can correct the red-eye phenomenon using [Retouch] in the viewing menu after shooting (page 52). When the Face Detection function is not used, the Red Eye Reduction will not function even when [Auto] is selected.

Effective use of the battery pack
Battery performance decreases in low temperature surroundings. So, the time that the battery pack can be used is shorter in cold places. We recommend the following to ensure longer battery pack use: Put the battery pack in a pocket close to your body to warm it up, and insert it in your camera immediately before you start shooting. The battery pack will run out quickly if you use the flash or zoom frequently. We recommend having spare battery packs handy for two or three times the expected shooting time, and making trial shots before taking the actual shots. Do not expose the battery pack to water. The battery pack is not water-resistant. Do not leave the battery pack in extremely hot places, such as in a car or under direct sunlight.
How to store the battery pack
If the battery pack is not to be used for a long time, fully charge it and then fully use it up once a year on your camera before storing the battery pack in a dry, cool place. Repeat this charging and using up once a year to maintain the battery packs function. To use the battery pack up, leave your camera in slide show (page 48) playback mode until the power goes off. To prevent staining the terminal, shortcircuiting, etc., be sure to use a supplied battery case when carrying and storing.

On battery life

The battery life is limited. Battery capacity decreases little by little as you use it more and more, and as time passes. If the battery operating time seems shortened considerably, a probable cause is that the battery pack has reached the end of its life. Buy a new battery pack.

On the battery charger

Do not charge any other battery pack other than the NP-BG type battery packs in the battery charger supplied with your camera. Batteries other than the specified kind may leak, overheat, or explode if you attempt to charge them, posing a risk of injury from electrocution and burns. Remove the charged battery pack from the battery charger. If you leave the charged battery pack in the charger, battery life may be shortened. When the CHARGE lamp flashes, this may indicate a battery error or that a battery pack other than the specified type have been inserted. Check that the battery pack is the specified type. If the battery pack is the specified type, remove the battery pack, replace it with new one or another one and check if the battery charger operates correctly. If the battery charger operates correctly, a battery error may have occurred. If the battery charger is dirty, charging may not be performed successfully. Clean the battery charger with dry cloth, etc.
