---- -- -- -- -- X Y M Y M D D TIME MENU CANCEL 39 EN Usage Tips If the camera does not work as intended, or if an error message is displayed on the screen, and you are unsure of what to do, refer to the information below to fix the problem(s). Troubleshooting Battery “The camera does not work even when batteries are installed”. Insert new or recharged batteries in the correct direction. “Loading the batteries and the xD-Picture CardTM (sold separately) into the camera” (p. 10) Battery performance may have been reduced temporarily due to low temperature. Take the batteries out of the camera, and warm them by putting them in your pocket for a while. Card/Internal memory “An error message is displayed”. “Error message” (p. 40) Shutter button “No picture is taken when the shutter button is pressed”. Cancel sleep mode. To save battery power, the camera automatically goes into sleep mode and the monitor turns off if there is no operation for 3 minutes when the camera is turned on. No picture is taken even if the shutter button is fully pressed in this mode. Operate the zoom buttons or other buttons to restore the camera from sleep mode before taking a picture. If the camera is left for another 12 minutes, it automatically turns off. Press the n button to turn the camera on. Press the K button to set a shooting mode. Wait until #(flash charge) stops blinking before taking pictures. ● ● ● ● ● Monitor “Difficult to see”. Condensation*1 may have occurred. Turn off the power, and wait for the camera body to become acclimated to the surrounding temperature and dry out before taking pictures. *1 Dew drops can form in the camera when it is suddenly taken from a cold location into a warm, humid room. “Vertical lines appear on the screen”. This condition may occur when the camera is pointed at an extremely bright subject under a clear sky and so on. The lines do not appear, however, in the final image. “The light is caught in the picture”. Shooting with flash in dark situations results in an image with many flash reflections on dust in the air. Date and time function “Date and time settings return to the default setting”. If the batteries are removed and left out of the camera for about a day*2 , the date and time settings return to the default setting, and must be reset. *2 The time until the date and time settings return to the default setting varies depending on how long the batteries have been loaded. “Setting the date and time” (p. 12) Miscellaneous “The camera makes a noise when taking pictures”. The camera may activate the lens and make a noise even if no operation is performed. This is because the camera automatically performs actions of auto focus as far as it is ready to shoot. ● ● ● ● ● book̲d4397̲en̲UA.indb 39 book̲d4397̲en̲UA.indb 39 2008/12/09 17:40:34 2008/12/09 17:40:34

41 EN Shooting tips When you are unsure of how to take a picture that you envision, refer to the information below. Focusing “Focusing on the subject” Taking a picture of a subject not in the center of the screen After focusing on an object at the same distance as the subject, compose the shot, and take the picture. Pressing the shutter button halfway (p. 14) Taking a picture of subjects where autofocus is difficult In the following cases, after focusing on an object (by pressing the shutter button halfway down) with high contrast at the same distance as the subject, compose the shot, and take the picture. Subjects with low contrast When extremely bright objects appear in the center of the screen Object with no vertical lines*1 *1 It is also effective to compose the shot by holding the camera vertically to focus, and then returning to the horizontal position to take the picture. When objects are at different distances ● ● Fast-moving object The subject is not in the center of the frame Camera shake “Taking pictures without camera shake” Taking pictures using h mode (p. 18). Select j (SPORT) in s mode (p. 17) The j (SPORT) mode uses a fast shutter speed and can reduce the blur incurred by a moving subject. Taking pictures at a high ISO sensitivity. If a high ISO sensitivity is selected, pictures can be taken at a high shutter speed even at locations where a flash cannot be used. [ISO] (p. 24) Exposure (brightness) “Taking pictures with the right brightness” Taking pictures using [FACE DETECT] (p. 25) Appropriate exposure is obtained for a face against backlight, and the face is brightened. Taking pictures using [FILL IN] (p. 19) flash A subject against backlight is brightened. Taking pictures using exposure compensation (p. 20) Adjust the brightness while viewing the screen for taking the picture. Normally, taking pictures of white subjects (such as snow) results in images that are darker than the actual subject. Use the F button to adjust in the positive (+) direction to express whites as they appear. When taking pictures of black subjects, on the other hand, it is effective to adjust in the negative (-) direction. ● ● ● ● ● ● book̲d4397̲en̲UA.indb 41 book̲d4397̲en̲UA.indb 41 2008/12/09 17:40:37 2008/12/09 17:40:37

42 EN Color hue “Taking pictures with colors at the same shade as they appear” Taking pictures by selecting [WB] (p. 24) Best results in most environments can normally be obtained with the AUTO setting, but for some subjects, you should try experimenting with different settings. (This is especially true for sunshade under a clear sky, mixed natural and artificial light settings, and so on.) Taking pictures using [FILL IN] (p. 19) flash Use of the flash is also effective for shooting under fluorescent and other artificial lighting. Image quality “Taking sharper pictures” Taking pictures with the optical zoom Avoid using digital zoom (p. 19) to take pictures. Taking pictures at a low ISO sensitivity If the picture is taken with a high ISO sensitivity, noise (small colored spots and color unevenness that were not in the original image) can occur, and the image can appear grainy. The resulting image is grainier than with low ISO sensitivity as well. [ISO] (p. 24) Batteries “Making batteries last longer” Avoid any of the following operations when not actually taking pictures because they deplete the battery power.

50 EN LCD Monitor Do not push the monitor forcibly; otherwise the image may become vague, resulting in a playback mode failure or damage to the monitor. A strip of light may appear on the top/bottom of the monitor, but this is not a malfunction. When a subject is viewed diagonally in the camera, the edges may appear zigzagged on the monitor. This is not a malfunction; it will be less noticeable in playback mode. In places subject to low temperatures, the LCD monitor may take a long time to turn on or its color may change temporarily. When using the camera in extremely cold places, it is a good idea to occasionally place it in a warm place. An LCD monitor exhibiting poor performance due to low temperatures will recover in normal temperatures. The LCD used for the monitor is made with high-precision technology. However, black spots or bright spots of light may appear constantly on the LCD Monitor. Due to its characteristics or the angle at which you are viewing the monitor, the spot may not be uniform in color and brightness. This is not a malfunction.
