I General Precautions
Be sure to observe the following important precautions whenever using the EX-Z57. All references in this manual to camera refer to the CASIO EX-Z57 Digital Camera. Never try to take pictures or use the built-in display while operating a motor vehicle or while walking. Doing so creates the risk of serious accident. Never try to open the case of the camera or attempt your own repairs. High-voltage internal components create the risk of electric shock when exposed. Always leave maintenance and repair work up to a CASIO authorized service center. Keep the small parts and accessories of this camera out of the reach of small children. If swallowed accidentally, contact your physician immediately. Never fire the flash in the direction of a person operating a motor vehicle. Doing so can interfere with the drivers vision and create the risk of accident.
INTRODUCTION Never fire the flash while it is too close to the subjects eyes. Intense light from the flash can cause eye damage if it is fired too close to the eyes. This is especially true with young children. When using the flash, the camera should be at least one meter (3.3) from the eyes of the subject. Keep the camera away from water and other liquids, and never let it get wet. Moisture creates the risk of fire and electric shock. Never use the camera outdoors in the rain or snow, at the seashore or beach, in the bathroom, etc. Should foreign matter or water ever get into the camera, immediately turn it off. Next, remove the cameras battery and/or unplug the AC adaptor power cord from the power outlet, and contact your dealer or nearest CASIO authorized service center. Using the camera under these conditions creates the risk of fire and electric shock. Should you ever notice smoke or a strange odor coming out of the camera, immediately turn it off. Next, taking care you do not burn your fingers, remove the cameras battery and/or unplug the AC adaptor power cord from the power outlet, and contact your dealer or nearest CASIO authorized service center. Using the camera under these conditions creates the risk of fire and electric shock. After making sure there is no more smoke coming from the camera, take it to your nearest CASIO authorized service center for repair. Never attempt your own maintenance. Never use the AC adaptor to power any other device besides this camera. Never use any other AC adaptor besides the one that comes with this camera. Never cover the AC adaptor with a quilt, blanket, or other cover while it is in use, and do not use it near a heater. At least once a year, unplug the AC adaptor power cord from the power outlet and clean the area around the prongs of the plug. Dust build up around the prongs can create the risk of fire. If the cameras case should ever become cracked due to dropping it or otherwise subjecting it to rough treatment, immediately turn it off. Next, remove the cameras battery and/or unplug the AC adaptor power cord from the power outlet, and contact your dealer or nearest CASIO authorized service center. Never use the camera inside of an aircraft or in any other area where its use is prohibited. Doing so creates the risk of accident. Physical damage and malfunction of this camera can cause the data stored in its memory to be deleted. Always keep backup copies of data by transferring them to personal computer memory.
INTRODUCTION Never open the battery cover, disconnect the AC adaptor from the camera, or unplug the AC adaptor from the wall socket while an image is being recorded. Doing so will not only make storage of the current image impossible, it can also corrupt other image data already stored in file memory.
I Data Error Precautions

Specifying Image Size
Image size is the size of the image, expressed as the number of vertical and horizontal pixels. A pixel is one of the many tiny dots that make up the image. More pixels provide finer detail when an image is printed, but a higher pixel count also causes the images file size of to be larger. You can select an image size to suit your needs for greater detail or smaller file size.
Image Size (3:2) 640 480

1. In a REC mode, press [MENU]. 2. Use  and  to select the REC tab. 3. Use  and  to select Size, and then
When selecting the image size, the image size value (pixels) will alternate on the display with a corresponding print size. The print size indicates the optimum paper size when you print an image that is the image size you select.
The above print sizes are all approximate values when printing at a resolution of 200 dpi (dots per inch). Use a larger setting when you want to print at a higher resolution or when you plan to produce a larger size print. Selecting the (3:2) image size will record images with a 3:2 (horizontal : vertical) aspect ratio, which is optimal for printing on paper with an aspect ratio of 3:2.
4. Use  and  to select the candidate you
want to correct.
5. Use  and  to
select Correct, and then press [SET].
Selecting Cancel in place of Correct stores the original image as-is, without correcting it. IMPORTANT! The maximum Business Shot image size is pixels, even if the camera is configured for a larger image size. An image size setting smaller than pixels records images at the specified size.
