Getting started
Getting started
Preparing batteries
Use the following batteries in this camera. Notes on using alkaline batteries
• Alkaline batteries have a shorter life compared to the supplied Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries.
For this reason, the power may turn off even though the battery remaining indicator shows sufficient battery life remaining.
• Battery performance differs greatly depending on the manufacturer and the type of battery, and in some cases the battery life may be extremely short. This is especially true at low temperatures, and you may not be able to shoot at temperatures below 5°C (41°F).
• Do not mix new and old batteries.
• The battery remaining indicator does not display the correct information when using alkaline batteries.
• Due to the characteristics of alkaline batteries, there is a large difference between the available shooting time and the available playback time.
For this reason, the camera may turn off with the lens portion extended when you switch the mode dial. In this case, replace the batteries with new ones or fully charged Nickel-Metal
Hydride batteries.
We recommend using the supplied
Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries.
Acceptable batteries
HR 15/51:HR6 (size AA) Nickel-Metal
Hydride batteries (2)
– NH-AA-DA (2) (supplied)
– NH-AA-2DA twin-pack (not supplied), etc.
R6 (size AA) alkaline batteries (2)
Batteries that cannot be used
Manganese batteries
Lithium batteries
Ni-cad batteries
If you use the batteries described above, we cannot guarantee full performance of the camera by property of the batteries, such as brownout of the batteries.
Charging the batteries
, Insert Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries into the battery charger (supplied) with the correct polarity +/–.
• You cannot charge alkaline batteries using the battery charger.
• Be sure to charge the Nickel-Metal
Hydride batteries supplied with your camera before using them.
• Connect the battery charger to an easily accessible wall outlet (wall socket) close by.
• Even if the CHARGE lamp is not lit, the battery charger is not disconnected from the AC power source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall outlet (wall socket). If some trouble occurs while using the battery charger, immediately shut off the power by disconnecting the plug from the wall outlet (wall socket).12
, Connect the battery charger to a wall outlet (wall socket) using the power cord (mains lead).
The CHARGE lamp lights up when charging begins, and goes off when charging is completed.
For details on the battery charger
(supplied), see page 119.
To remove the batteries
Press the – end of the battery down in order to raise the + end, then remove the battery.
• When charging is finished, disconnect the power cord (mains lead) from the wall outlet
(wall socket), and remove the Nickel-Metal
Hydride batteries from the battery charger.
Charging time
This represents the time required to charge fully depleted Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries using the supplied battery charger in an environment where the ambient temperature is 25°C (77°F).
• It takes about six hours to completely charge the batteries. The CHARGE lamp may remain lit longer than six hours, but this is not a malfunction.
• If you use the battery charger supplied with the
STAMINA “Quick charge” kit (not supplied), the batteries will charge faster.
Charging time
When charging two Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries: Approximately 2 hours 30 minutes
When charging four Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries: Approximately 5 hours
Notes on the Nickel-Metal
Hydride batteries
• At the time of purchase, or when the
Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries have not been used for a long time, they may not fully 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 the poles of the Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries are dirty, the batteries may not charge properly. Occasionally clean the poles of the batteries and the terminals of the charger by wiping them with a dry cloth.
• Always carry the Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries in the supplied battery case.
Otherwise, metallic objects may short the + and
– ends, resulting in the risk of heating or fire.
• Even when Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries are not being used they lose their charge naturally over time. It is recommended that you recharge the batteries just before using them.
• 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.

Getting started
• To use up the batteries completely, put the camera in the slide show mode (page 64) and leave it that way until the batteries are used up.
• 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.
Inserting the batteries
, Open the battery cover.
Press V on the OPEN button and slide it in the direction of the arrow to open the cover.
, Insert the batteries.
Match the +/– poles of the batteries to the +/
– marks inside the battery case.
• From time to time, use a dry cloth to wipe any dirt off of the battery terminals and the contacts inside the inner cover. Skin oil and other dirt on the battery terminals and contacts can significantly shorten the operating time provided by the batteries.
1 214
, Close the battery cover.
Press in the batteries with the cover, and close the cover firmly until it locks in place.
To remove the batteries
Hold the camera with the battery cover facing upward, then open the battery cover and remove the batteries.
• Be careful not to drop the batteries when opening or closing the battery cover.
Battery remaining indicator
(When using the Nickel-Metal
Hydride batteries)
As the battery power decreases with use, the battery remaining indicator displays the amount of power remaining using the following symbols.
• If the LCD screen is off, press to turn it on.
• Based on the conditions under which the camera is being used and the state of the charge, or on the environment, this information may not be correctly indicated.
• When using alkaline batteries, the battery remaining indicator does not display the correct information. In addition, battery performance differs greatly depending on the manufacturer and the type of battery, and the power may turn off even though the battery remaining indicator shows sufficient battery life remaining. In this case, replace the batteries with new ones or use the supplied Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries.
• When the AC Adaptor (not supplied) is being used, the battery remaining indicator is not displayed.

Number of images and battery life that can be recorded/viewed
The tables show the approximate number of images and the battery life that can be recorded/viewed when you shoot images in normal mode with fully charged batteries (supplied) at a temperature of 25°C (77°F). The numbers of images that can be recorded or viewed take into account changing the supplied “Memory Stick” as necessary. Note that the actual numbers may be less than indicated depending on the conditions of use.
• The battery capacity decreases as the number of uses increases and over time (page 118).

Image size and quality
You can choose image size (number of pixels) and image quality (compression ratio) based on the kind of images you want to shoot.
The image size is shown by the number of pixels (dots) (horizontal × vertical), which compose an image. For example, a 5M
(2592×1944) size image indicates that there are 2592 pixels horizontally and 1944 pixels vertically. The larger the number of pixels, the larger the image size.
You can select from Fine (high quality) or
Standard image quality. Each uses a different compression ratio.
When you select Fine, the image quality improves as the image size increases, but the amount of recorded data also increases and the number of images that can be recorded on a “Memory Stick” decreases.
Refer to the table on the right and choose the image size and image quality appropriate to the kind of images you want to shoot.

Auto Focus
When you try to shoot a subject that is difficult to focus on, the AE/AF lock indicator changes to flashing slowly. In addition, the AE locked beep does not sound.
The Auto Focus function may have difficulty working under the following conditions. In such cases, release the shutter button, then recompose the shot and focus again.
• The subject is distant from the camera and dark.
• The contrast between the subject and its background is poor.
• The subject is seen through glass, such as a window.
• A fast-moving subject.
• The subject reflects or has a lustrous finish, such as a mirror or a luminous body.
• A flashing subject.
• A backlit subject.
There are two Auto Focus functions: “AF range finder frame” which sets the focus position according to the subject position and size, and “AF mode” which sets the focus start/finish timing. See page 48 for details.

Zoom
Your camera is equipped with zoom functions that enlarge the image using optical zoom and two types of digital processing. Digital zoom can be selected from smart zoom or precision digital zoom.
When digital zoom is set, the zoom method switches from optical zoom to digital zoom when the zoom scale exceeds 3×.
To use only the optical zoom, set [Digital
Zoom] to [Off] in the SET UP settings
(page 114). In this case, the digital zoom area does not appear in the zoom scale display bar on the LCD screen, and the maximum zoom is 3×. The enlargement method and the zoom scale differ according to the image size and the zoom type, so select the zoom to match the shooting purpose.
