For Your Safety
The Battery and Power Supply
Note: Check the type of battery used in
your camera and read the appropriate
sections.
The following describes the proper use of
batteries and how to prolong their life. Incor-
rect use can shorten battery life or cause leak-
age, overheating, fire, or explosion.
Li-ionBatteries
Li-ionBatteries
Read this section if your camera uses a
rechargeable Li-ion battery.
The battery is not charged at shipment.
Charge the battery before use. Keep the bat-
tery in its case when not in use.
■ Notes on the Battery
The battery gradually loses its charge when
not in use. Charge the battery one or two
days before use.
Battery life can be extended by turning the
camera off when not in use.
Battery capacity decreases at low tempera-
tures; a depleted battery may not function at
when cold. Keep a fully charged spare bat-
tery in a warm place and exchange as nec-
essary, or keep the battery in your pocket or
other warm place and insert it in the camera
only when shooting. Do not place the bat-
tery in direct contact with hand warmers or
other heating devices.
■ Charging the Battery
Charge the battery in the supplied battery
charger. Charging times will increase at am-
bient temperatures below +10°C (+50°F) or
above +35°C (+95°F). Do not attempt to
charge the battery at temperatures above
40°C (+104°F); at temperatures below 0°C
(+32°F), the battery will not charge.
Do not attempt to recharge a fully charged
battery. The battery does not however need
to be fully discharged before charging.
The battery may be warm to the touch imme-
diately after charging or use. This is normal.
■ Battery Life
At normal temperatures, the battery can be
recharged about 300 times. A noticeable de-
crease in the length of time the battery will
hold a charge indicates that it has reached
the end of its service life and should be re-
placed.
■ Storage
Performance may be impaired if the battery is
left unused for extended periods when fully
charged. Run the battery flat before storing it.
If the camera will not be used for an extended
period, remove the battery and store it in a
dry place with an ambient temperature of
from +15°C to +25°C (+59°F to +77°F). Do
not store in locations exposed to extremes of
temperature.
■ Cautions: Handling the Battery
• Do not transport or store with metal objects
such as necklaces or hairpins.
• Do not expose to flame or heat.
• Do not disassemble or modify.
• Use with designated chargers only.
• Do not drop or subject to strong physical
shocks.
• Do not expose to water.
• Keep the terminals clean.
• The battery and camera body may become
warm to the touch after extended use. This
is normal.
AAAlkaline/RechargeableNi-MHBatteries
AAAlkaline/RechargeableNi-MHBatteries
Read this section if your camera uses AA
alkaline or rechargeable AA Ni-MH bat-
teries. Information on compatible battery
types may be found elsewhere in the camera
manual.
■ Cautions: Handling the Batteries
• Do not expose to water, flame, or heat, or
store in warm or humid conditions.
• Do not transport or store with metal objects
such as necklaces or hairpins.
• Do not disassemble or modify the batteries
or battery casing.
• Do not subject to strong physical shocks.
• Do not use batteries that are leaking, de-
formed, or discolored.
• Keep out of reach of infants and small chil-
dren.
• Insert in the correct orientation.
Page: 6
vii
For Your Safety
• Do not mix old and new batteries, batteries
with different charge levels, or batteries of
different types.
• If the camera will not be used for an extend-
ed period, remove the batteries. Note that
the camera clock will be reset.
• The batteries may be warm to the touch
immediately after use. Turn the camera
off and allow the batteries to cool before
handling.
• Battery capacity tends to decrease at low
temperatures. Keep spare batteries in a
pocket or other warm place and exchange
as necessary. Cold batteries may recover
some of their charge when warmed.
• Fingerprints and other stains on the battery
terminals can impair battery performance.
Thoroughly clean the terminals with a
soft, dry cloth before inserting them in the
camera.
If the batteries leak, clean the battery
compartment thoroughly before in-
serting new batteries.
If fluid from the battery comes into
contact with skin or clothing, flush
the affected area with water. If fluid
enters your eyes, immediately flush the
affected area with water and seek
medicalattention. Donotrubyoureyes.
Failure to observe this precaution could
resultinpermanentvisualimpairment.
■ Ni-MH Batteries
The capacity of Ni-MH batteries may be
temporarily reduced when new, after long
periods of disuse, or if they are repeatedly
recharged before being fully discharged. This
is normal and does not indicate a malfunc-
tion. Capacity can be increased by repeatedly
discharging the batteries using the discharge
option in the camera setup menu and re-
charging them using a battery charger.
Q CAUTION: Do not use the discharge option
with alkaline batteries.
The camera draws a small amount of current
even when off. Ni-MH batteries that have
been left in the camera for an extended pe-
riod may be drawn down to the point that
they no longer hold a charge. Battery perfor-
mance may also drop if the batteries are run
down in a device such as a flashlight. Use the
discharge option in the camera setup menu
to discharge Ni-MH batteries. Batteries that
no longer hold a charge even after repeat-
edly being discharged and recharged have
reached the end of their service life and must
be replaced.
Ni-MH batteries can be recharged in a bat-
tery charger (sold separately). Batteries may
become warm to the touch after charging.
Refer to the instructions provided with the
charger for more information. Use the char-
ger with compatible batteries only.
Ni-MH batteries gradually lose their charge
when not in use.
■ Disposal
Dispose of used batteries in accord with local
regulations.

Q Memory Cards
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 after using them in a computer or other device. For more information
on formatting memory cards, see“K FORMAT”(P131).
• 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 representative. 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 G card or better when shooting HD or high-speed movies.

Inserting the Battery and a Memory Card
• The data in internal memory may be erased or corrupted when the camera is re-
paired. 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 computer 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.

Q Panoramas are created from multiple frames. The camera may in some cases record
an 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 be-
fore the panorama is complete.
Q Shooting may be interrupted if the camera is panned too quickly or too slowly. Pan-
ning the camera in a direction other than that shown cancels shooting.
Q The desired results may not be achieved with moving 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 waterfalls, or subjects that undergo marked
changes in brightness. Panoramas may be blurred if the subject is poorly lit.

Choose z for seamless 360° panoramas that can be played back in a loop (P78).
R The t SAVE DATA SET-UP > SAVE ORG IMAGE option can be used to record a
v panorama in addition to a seamless z panorama (P129).
Q Depending on the subject and shooting conditions, 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
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.

■ i PRO FOCUS
The camera takes up to three shots each time the shutter
button is pressed, softening the background to empha-
size the main subject. The amount of softening can be
adjusted before shooting by rotating the sub-command
dial. Use for portraits or photos of flowers similar to those
produced by SLR cameras.
R 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.
