Operations
• Use only the recommended battery.
• Do not place the battery near or in direct flame.
• Unplug the power cord periodically, and using a dry cloth, wipe away
any dust and dirt that has collected on the plug, the exterior of the
power outlet, and the surrounding area.
• Do not handle the power cord with wet hands.
• Do not use the equipment in a manner that exceeds the rated
capacity of the electrical outlet or wiring accessories. Do not use if
the power cord or plug are damaged, or not fully plugged into the
outlet.
• Do not allow dirt or metal objects (such as pins or keys) to contact
the terminals or plug.
The battery may explode or leak, resulting in electrical shock or fire. This
could cause injury and damage the surroundings. In the event that a battery
leaks and the battery electrolyte contacts eyes, mouth, skin or clothing,
immediately flush with water.
• Turn the camera off in places where camera use is prohibited.
The electromagnetic waves emitted by the camera may interfere with the
operation of electronic instruments and other devices. Exercise adequate
caution when using the camera in places where use of electronic devices is
restricted, such as inside airplanes and medical facilities.
• Do not play the supplied CD-ROM(s) in any CD player that does not
support data CD-ROMs.
It is possible to suffer hearing loss from listening with headphones to the
loud sounds of a CD-ROM played on an audio CD player (music player).
Additionally, this could damage the speakers.
Caution Denotes the possibility of injury.
• When holding the camera by the strap, be careful not to bang it,
subject it to strong impacts or shocks, or let it get caught on other
objects.
• Be careful not to bump or push strongly on the lens.
This could lead to injury or damage the camera.
• Be careful not to subject the screen to strong impacts.
If the screen cracks, injury may result from the broken fragments.
• When using the flash, be careful not to cover it with your fingers or
clothing.
This could result in burns or damage to the flash.
• Avoid using, placing or storing the product in the following places:
- Places subject to direct sunlight
- Places subject to temperatures above 40 °C (104 °F)
- Humid or dusty areas
These could cause leakage, overheating or an explosion of the battery,
resulting in electrical shock, fire, burns or other injuries.
High temperatures may cause deformation of the camera or battery charger
casing.
• The slideshow transition effects may cause discomfort when viewed
for prolonged periods.
Caution Denotes the possibility of damage to the equipment.
• Do not aim the camera at bright light sources (such as the sun on a
clear day).
Doing so may damage the image sensor.
• When using the camera on a beach or at a windy location, be careful
not to allow dust or sand to enter the camera.
This may cause the product to malfunction.
• In regular use, small amounts of smoke may be emitted from the
flash.
This is due to the high intensity of the flash burning dust and foreign
materials stuck to the front of the unit. Please use a cotton swab to remove
dirt, dust or other foreign matter from the flash to prevent heat build-up and
damage to the unit.

Shooting in Hybrid Auto Mode
You can make a short movie of the day (digest movie). Just by shooting
still images, the camera will automatically record a movie clip of the scene
immediately before each shot.
1 Enter [ ] mode.
z
z Set the mode switch to [ ].
2 Shoot.
z
z Follow steps 3 – 4 in “Shooting (Smart
Auto)” (=
16) to shoot a still image.
z
z To beautifully capture a digest movie,
which is created by automatically
recording about 2 – 4 seconds of the
scene before each shot, aim the camera
at the subject about four seconds before
shooting a still image.
z
z Some camera sounds will be muted.
Sounds are not played when you press
the shutter button halfway, or trigger the
self-timer (=39).
• Battery life is shorter in this mode than in [ ] mode, because
digest movies are recorded for each shot.
• A digest movie may not be recorded if you shoot a still image
immediately after turning the camera on, choosing [ ] mode, or
operating the camera in other ways.
• Camera operating sounds will be recorded in digest movies.
• Although the digest movie recorded on a particular day constitutes a single
file, a single clip (chapter) is created with each shot, and the clip can be edited
(=105).
• Digest movies are saved as separate movie files in the following cases even if
they were recorded on the same day in [ ] mode.
- If the digest movie file size reaches approximately 4 GB or the total recording
time reaches approximately 29 minutes and 59 seconds
- If the digest movie is protected (=93)
- If the daylight saving time (=
14) or time zone (=
134) settings have
been changed
- If a new folder is created (=137)
Digest Movie Playback
You can play digest movies either by viewing still images shot in [ ] mode
on the same day as the movies or by specifying the date of movies to play
(=86).
Still Images/Movies
• If the camera is turned on while the <p> button is held down, the
camera will no longer sound. To activate sounds again, press the

• A flashing [ ] icon warns that images are more likely to be blurred
by camera shake. In this case, mount the camera on a tripod or take
other measures to keep it still.
• If your shots are dark despite the flash firing, move closer to the
subject. For details on the flash range, see “Flash Range” (=172).
• The subject may be too close if the camera only beeps once when
you press the shutter button halfway. For details on the focusing
range (shooting range), see “Shooting Range” (=173).
• To reduce red-eye and to assist in focusing, the lamp may be
activated when shooting in low-light conditions.
• A blinking [h] icon displayed when you attempt to shoot indicates
that shooting is not possible until the flash has finished recharging.
Shooting can resume as soon as the flash is ready, so either press
the shutter button all the way down and wait, or release it and press
it again.
• The shutter sound will not be played when the Sleeping and Babies
(Sleeping) icons (=
36) are displayed.
• You can change how long images are displayed after shots (=52).
Movies
• The camera may become warm when shooting movies repeatedly
over an extended period. This does not indicate damage.
• Keep your fingers away from the
microphone while shooting movies.
Blocking the microphone may prevent
audio from being recorded or may
cause the recording to sound muffled.
• Avoid touching camera controls other than the movie button when
shooting movies, because sounds made by the camera will be
recorded.
• Audio is recorded in stereo.

Continuous Shooting Scenes
If you shoot a still image when the following scene icons are displayed,
the camera will shoot continuously. If you press the shutter button halfway
when one of the icons in the table below is displayed, one of the following
icons will be displayed to inform you that the camera will shoot continuous
images: [ ], [ ], or [W].
Smiling (including Babies)
:	
Consecutive images are captured, and the camera
analyzes details such as facial expressions to save
the image determined to be the best.
Sleeping (including Babies)
:	
Beautiful shots of sleeping faces, created by
combining consecutive shots to reduce camera
shake and image noise.
The AF assist beam will not light up, the flash will
not fire, and the shutter sound will not be played.
Children
W:	
So you don’t miss a photo opportunity of children
who move around, the camera will capture three
consecutive images for each shot.
• In some scenes, expected images may not be saved, and images
may not look as expected.
• Focus, image brightness, and color are determined by the first shot.
• When you want to shoot single images only, press the <m> button, choose
[ ] in the menu, and then select [ ].
Still Images Movies
Image Stabilization Icons
Optimal image stabilization for the shooting conditions is automatically
applied (Intelligent IS). Additionally, the following icons are displayed in [ ]
and [ ] modes.
Image stabilization for still
images
Image stabilization for movies,
reducing strong camera shake,
as when shooting while walking
(Dynamic IS)
Image stabilization for still
images, when panning*
Image stabilization for slow
camera shake, such as when
shooting movies at telephoto
(Powered IS)
Image stabilization for macro
shots (Hybrid IS)
No image stabilization, because
the camera is mounted on
a tripod or held still by other
means
* Displayed when you pan, following moving subjects with the camera. When you follow
subjects moving horizontally, image stabilization only counteracts vertical camera
shake, and horizontal stabilization stops. Similarly, when you follow subjects moving
vertically, image stabilization only counteracts horizontal camera shake.
• To cancel image stabilization, set [IS Mode] to [Off] (=
82). In this case, an
IS icon is not displayed.
• In [ ] mode, no [ ] icon is displayed.

In [ ] mode, a variety of frames are displayed once the camera detects
subjects you are aiming the camera at.
• A white frame is displayed around the subject (or person’s face)
determined by the camera to be the main subject, and gray frames are

will remain on the screen.
• When you are pressing the shutter button halfway and the camera
detects subject movement, a blue frame is displayed, and the focus and
image brightness are constantly adjusted (Servo AF).
• Try shooting in [G] mode (=
68) if no frames are displayed, if
frames are not displayed around desired subjects, or if frames are
displayed on the background or similar areas.

Using Face ID
If you register a person ahead of time, the camera will detect that person’s
face, and prioritize focus, brightness, and color for that person when
shooting. In [ ] mode, the camera can detect babies and children based
on registered birthdays and optimize settings for them when shooting.
This function is also useful when searching for a specific registered person
among a large number of images (=88).
Personal Information
• Information such as images of a face (face info) registered with Face ID,
and personal information (name, birthday) will be saved on the camera.
Additionally, when registered people are detected, their names will be
recorded in still images. When using the Face ID function, be careful
when sharing the camera or images with others, and when posting
images online where many others can view them.
• When disposing of a camera or transferring it to another person after
using Face ID, be sure to erase all information (registered faces, names,
and birthdays) from the camera (=46).
