44 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 Battery “The camera does not work even when batteries are installed”. ● Insert recharged batteries in the correct direction. “Inserting and removing the battery and card (commercially available)” (p. 4), “Charging the battery” (p. 5) ● 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 Card/Internal memory “An error message is displayed”. “Error message” (p. 45) Shutter button 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 q button to switch to the shooting mode. ● Wait until #(flash charge) stops blinking before taking pictures. ● With prolonged camera use, the internal temperature may increase, resulting in automatic shutdown. If this occurs, wait until the camera has sufficiently cooled. The camera’s external temperature may also increase during use, however this is normal and does not indicate malfunction.

45 EN Monitor Monitor “Difficult to see”. ● Condensation 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. “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 function “Date and time settings return to the default setting”. ● If the batteries are removed and left out of the camera for about 1 days*1 , the date and time settings return to the default setting, and must be reset. *1 The time until the date and time settings return to the default setting varies depending on how long the batteries have been loaded. “Turning on the camera and making the initial settings” (p. 7) Miscellaneous 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.

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 monitor 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. 9) ● Set [AF Mode] (p. 28) to [Face/iESP] ● Taking a picture of a shadowy subject Using the AF illuminator makes focusing easier. [AF Illuminat.] (p. 29) ● 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
Page: 47
47 EN When extremely bright objects appear in the center of the monitor 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” ● Select [C Sport] in the scene mode (p. 13) The [C 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 sensitivity” (p. 25) Exposure (brightness) “Taking pictures with the right brightness” ● Taking pictures using [Face/iESP] (p. 28) Appropriate exposure is obtained for a face against backlight, and the face is brightened. ● Taking pictures using [Fill In] (p. 24) flash A subject against backlight is brightened. ● Taking pictures of a white beach or snow scene Select [q Beach & Snow] in the scene mode (p. 13).
Page: 48
48 EN ● Taking pictures using exposure compensation (p. 24) 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 exposure compensation 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. Color hue “Taking pictures with colors at the same shade as they appear” ● Taking pictures by selecting white balance (p. 24) Best results in most environments can normally be obtained with the [WB 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.) Image quality “Taking sharper 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. “ISO sensitivity” (p. 25) Playback/Editing tips Playback “Playing images in the internal memory and card” ● Remove the card and display the images in internal memory “Inserting and removing the battery and card (commercially available)” (p. 4) “Viewing images with high picture quality on a high-definition TV” ● Connect the camera to the TV using an HDMI cable (sold separately) “Playing back images on a TV d [TV Out]” (p. 36)
