For Your Safety
Power Supply and Battery
* Confirm your battery type before read-
ing the following descriptions.
The following explains proper use of
batteries and how to prolong their
life. Incorrect use of batteries can
cause shorter battery life, as well as
leakage, excessive heat, fire or explo-
sion.
1 Camera uses the Rechargeable
Lithium-ion Battery
* When shipped, the battery is not
fully charged. Always charge the
battery before using it.
* When carrying the battery, install it
in a digital camera or keep it in the
soft case.
■ Battery Features
• The battery gradually loses its
charge even when not used. Use
a battery that has been charged
recently (in the last day or two) to
take pictures.
• To maximize the life of the battery,
turn the camera off as quickly as
possible when it is not being used.
• The number of available frames
will be lower in cold locations or
at low temperatures. Take along
a spare fully charged battery. You
can also increase the amount of
power produced by putting the
battery in your pocket or another
warm place to heat it and then
loading it into the camera just be-
fore you take a picture.
If you are using a heating pad, take
care not to place the battery di-
rectly against the pad. The camera
may not operate if you use a de-
pleted battery in cold conditions.
■ Charging the Battery
• You can charge the battery using
the battery charger (included).
- The battery can be charged
at ambient temperatures be-
tween 0°C and +40°C (+32°F
and +104°F). Refer to the Owner’s
Manual for the time of charging
battery.
- You should charge the battery
at an ambient temperature be-
tween +10°C and +35°C (+50°F
and +95°F). If you charge the
battery at a temperature outside
this range, charging takes longer
because the performance of the
battery is impaired.
- You cannot charge the battery
at temperatures of 0°C (+32°F) or
below.
• The Rechargeable Lithium-ion Bat-
tery does not need to be fully dis-
charged or exhausted flat before
being charged.
• The battery may feel warm after it
has been charged or immediately
after being used. This is perfectly
normal.
• Do not recharge a fully charged
battery.
■ Battery Life
At normal temperatures, the bat-
tery can be used at least 300 times.
If the time for which the battery
provides power shortens markedly,
this indicates that the battery has
reached the end of its effective life
and should be replaced.
■ Notes on storage
• If a battery is stored for long
periods while charged, the per-
formance of the battery can be
impaired. If the battery will not be
used for some time, run the battery
out before storing it.
• If you do not intend to use the
camera for a long period of time,
remove the battery from the cam-
era.
• Store the battery in a cool place.
- The battery should be stored in
a dry location with an ambient
temperature between +15°C and
+25°C (+59°F and +77°F).
- Do not leave the battery in hot or
extremely cold places.
■ Handling the Battery
Cautions for Your Safety:
• Do not carry or store battery with
metal objects such as necklaces or
hairpins.
• Do not heat the battery or throw it
into a fire.
• Do not attempt to take apart or
change the battery.
• Do not recharge the battery with
chargers other those specified.
• Dispose of used battery promptly.
• Do not drop the battery or other-
wise subject it to strong impacts.
• Do not expose the battery to wa-
ter.
• Always keep the battery terminals
clean.
• Do not store batteries in hot plac-
es. Also, if you use the battery for
a long period, the camera body
and the battery itself will become
warm. This is normal. Use the AC
power adapter if you are taking
pictures or viewing images for a
long period of time.
2 Camera uses AA Alkaline,
Rechargeable Ni-MH (nickel-metal
hydride) or AA lithium batteries
* For details on the batteries that
you can use, refer to the Owner’s
Manual of your camera.
■ Cautions for Using Battery
• Do not heat the batteries or throw
them into a fire.
• Do not carry or store batteries with
metal objects such as necklaces or
hairpins.
• Do not expose the batteries to
water, and keep batteries from get-
ting wet or stored in moist loca-
tions.
• Do not attempt to take apart or
change the batteries, including
battery casings.
• Do not subject the batteries to
strong impacts.
Page: 6
vii
For Your Safety
• Do not use batteries that are leak-
ing, deformed, discolored.
• Do not store batteries in warm or
humid places.
• Keep the batteries out of reach of
babies and small children.
• Make sure that the battery polarity
(C and D) is correct.
• Do not use new with used batter-
ies. Do not use charged and dis-
charged batteries together.
• Do not use different types or
brands of batteries at the same
time.
• If you do not intend to use the
camera for a long period of time,
remove the batteries from the
camera. Note if the camera is left
with the batteries removed, the
time and date settings are cleared.
• The batteries feel warm right after
being used. Before removing the
batteries, turn the camera off and
wait for the batteries to cool down.
• Since batteries do not work well in
cold weather or locations, warm
the batteries by placing them in-
side your garments before use.
Batteries do not work well when
cold. They will work again when
the temperature returns to normal.
• Soil (such as fingerprints) on the
battery terminals makes the bat-
teries charge less reducing the
number of images. Carefully wipe
the battery terminals with a soft
dry cloth before loading.
If any liquid at all leaks from
the batteries, wipe the battery
compartment thoroughly and
then load new batteries.
If any battery fluid comes into
contact with your hands or
clothing, flush the area thor-
oughly with water. Note that
battery fluid can cause loss
of eyesight if it gets into your
eyes. If this occurs, do not rub
your eyes. Flush the fluid out
with clean water and contact
your physician for treatment.
■ Using the AA-size Ni-MH batteries
correctly
• Ni-MH batteries left unused in
storage for long periods can be-
come “deactivated”. Also, repeat-
edly charging Ni-MH batteries
that are only partially discharged
can cause them to suffer from the
“memory effect”. Ni-MH batteries
that are “deactivated” or affected
by “memory” suffer from the prob-
lem of only providing power for a
short time after being charged. To
prevent this problem, discharge
and recharge them several times
using the camera’s “Discharging
rechargeable batteries” function.
Deactivation and memory are spe-
cific to Ni-MH batteries and are not
in fact battery faults.
See Owner’s Manual for the proce-
dure for “Discharging rechargeable
batteries”.
CAUTION
CAUTION
Do not use the “Discharging re-
chargeable batteries” function when
alkaline batteries being used.
• To charge Ni-MH batteries, use the
quick battery charger (sold sepa-
rately). Refer to the instructions
supplied with the charger to make
sure that the charger is used cor-
rectly.
• Do not use the battery charger to
charge other batteries.
• Note that the batteries feel warm
after being charged.
• Due to the way the camera is con-
structed, a small amount of current
is used even when the camera is
turned off. Note in particular that
leaving Ni-MH batteries in the
camera for a long period will over-
discharge the batteries and may
render them unusable even after
recharging.
• Ni-MH batteries will self-discharge
even when not used, and the time
for which they can be used may be
shortened as a result.
• Ni-MH batteries will deteriorate
rapidly if over-discharged (e.g.
by discharging the batteries in a
flashlight). Use the “Discharging re-
chargeable batteries” function pro-
vided in the camera to discharge
the batteries.
• Ni-MH batteries have a limited
service life. If a battery can only
be used for a short time even after
repeated discharge-charge cycles,
it may have reached the end of its
service life.
■ Disposing of Batteries
• When disposing of batteries, do
so in accordance with your local
waste disposal regulations.
3 Notes on both models ( 1 , 2 )
■ AC Power Adapter

Introduction
The Electronic Viewfinder (EVF)
The electronic viewfinder provides the same information as the monitor, and can be
used when bright lighting conditions make the display in the monitor difficult to see.
Press EVF/LCD button to select from the auto switch, monitor, or electric view finder
mode. When the auto switch mode is set, the electric view finder turns on automati-
cally when you put your eye to the view finder, and the monitor turns on when you
take your eye away (note that the eye sensor may not respond if you are wearing
glasses or your head is an angle to the camera).
Eye sensor
The camera is equipped with diopter adjustment to accommodate individual dif-
ferences in vision. Slide the diopter adjustment control up and down until the view-
finder display is in sharp focus.
Bright Ambient Lighting
Reflections and glare caused by bright ambient lighting may make it hard to see the display in the monitor,
particularly when the camera is used outdoors. This can be addressed by holding the EVF/LCD button to trigger
outdoor mode. Outdoor mode can also be enabled using the A SCREEN SET-UP > MONITOR SUNLIGHT
MODE option in the setup menu (P97).

CompatibleMemoryCards
FUJIFILM and SanDisk SD, SDHC, and SDXC mem-
ory cards have been approved for use in the cam-
era. A complete list of approved memory cards
is available at http://www.fujifilm.com/support/
digital_cameras/compatibility/. Operation is not
guaranteed with other cards. The camera can not
be used with xD-Picture Cards or MultiMediaCard
(MMC) devices.
c Memory Cards
• Do not turn the camera off or remove the memory
card while the memory card is being formatted or
data are being recorded to or deleted from the card.
Failure to observe this precaution could damage the
card.
• Format SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards before first
use, and be sure to reformat all memory cards af-
ter using them in a computer or other device. For
more information on formatting memory cards, see
“K FORMAT” (P102).
• Memory cards are small and can be swallowed; keep
out of reach of children. If a child swallows a memory
card, seek medical assistance immediately.
• miniSD or microSD adapters that are larger or smaller
than the standard dimensions of an SD/SDHC/SDXC
card may not eject normally; if the card does not
eject, take the camera to an authorized service repre-
sentative. Do not forcibly remove the card.
• Do not affix labels to memory cards. Peeling labels
can cause camera malfunction.
• Movie recording may be interrupted with some types
of SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card. Use a H card
or better when shooting HD or high-speed movies.
• The data in internal memory may be erased or cor-
rupted when the camera is repaired. Please note that
the repairer will be able to view pictures in internal
memory.
• Formatting a memory card or internal memory in the
camera creates a folder in which pictures are stored.
Do not rename or delete this folder or use a comput-
er or other device to edit, delete, or rename image
files. Always use the camera to delete pictures from
memory cards and internal memory; before editing
or renaming files, copy them to a computer and edit
or rename the copies, not the originals.

The camera takes up to three
shots each time the shutter
button is pressed, softening
the background to emphasize
the main subject. The amount
of softening can be adjusted before shooting by
rotating the command dial. Use for portraits or
photos of flowers similar to those produced by
SLR cameras.
a
Softening can not be applied to background objects
that are too close to the main subject. If a message
stating that the camera can not create the effect is
displayed when the camera focuses, try backing away
from your subject and zooming in. The camera may
also be unable to soften the background if the subject
is moving; if prompted, check the results and try again.

• Panoramas are created from multiple frames. The
camera may in some cases record a greater or lesser
angle than selected or be unable to stitch the frames
together perfectly. The last part of the panorama
may not be recorded if shooting ends before the
panorama is complete.
• Shooting may be interrupted if the camera is panned
too quickly or too slowly. Panning the camera in a
direction other than that shown cancels shooting.
• The desired results may not be achieved with mov-
ing subjects, subjects close to the camera, unvarying
subjects such as the sky or a field of grass, subjects
that are in constant motion, such as waves and wa-
terfalls, or subjects that undergo marked changes in
brightness. Panoramas may be blurred if the subject
is poorly lit.

the camera may produce distorted results or a v
panorama. The top and bottom of the area visible in
the shooting display are cropped out and white strips
may appear at the top and bottom of the display.
For Best Results
For best results, move the camera in a small circle at
a steady speed, keeping the camera horizontal and
being careful only to pan in the direction shown by
the guides. If the desired results are not achieved, try
panning at a different speed.
