Getting to know your camera better EN 39 There are several ways to focus, depending on the subject. When the subject is not in the center of the frame • Place the subject in the center of the frame, lock the focus on the subject, and then recompose your picture. g “Shutter button Shooting pictures/Recording movies” (P. 10) The subject is moving quickly • Focus the camera on a point roughly the same distance away as the subject you want to shoot (by pressing the shutter button halfway); and then recompose your picture and wait for the subject to enter the frame. • Under certain types of conditions, it is difficult to focus using auto focus. In these cases, focus (focus lock) on an object with high contrast at the same distance as the intended subject, recompose your shot and then take the picture. If the subject has no vertical lines, hold the camera vertically and focus the camera using the focus lock function by pressing the shutter button halfway, and then return the camera to the horizontal position while keeping the button pressed halfway and take the picture. Hold the camera correctly and press the shutter button gently to shoot the picture. In addition, blurring is reduced when taking pictures in the h mode. g “h Shooting pictures using digital image stabilization” (P. 12) The factors that can cause the picture to blur are as follows: • When you zoom at a high magnification to shoot the picture • When the shutter speed is set low to shoot a dark subject • When the flash cannot be used or a low shutter speed set f mode is selected.

Getting to know your camera better 40 EN The flash fires automatically when insufficient light is available and may cause your image to be blurry. When taking pictures in low lights without the flash, set the flash mode to [$] (flash off), then increase the ISO sensitivity. g “Y# button Flash shooting” (P. 15) Increase the [ISO] setting g “ISO Changing the ISO sensitivity” (P. 21) There are several factors that can cause the picture to appear grainy. Using the digital zoom to take close-up pictures • With the digital zoom, part of the image is cropped and enlarged. The greater the magnification, the grainier the picture appears. g “Zoom lever Zooming while shooting/Close-up playback” (P. 16) Increasing the ISO sensitivity • When you increase the [ISO] setting, “noise”, which appears as spots of unwanted color or unevenness in the color, can be introduced and give the picture a grainy appearance. This camera is equipped with a function to allow shooting at high sensitivity while suppressing noise; however, increasing the ISO sensitivity can result in some noise, depending on the shooting conditions. g “ISO Changing the ISO sensitivity” (P. 21) Taking pictures with the f mode set to M, W, S or X • When taking pictures of dark subjects using the above scene modes, the picture may appear grainy. g “f Shooting pictures by selecting a scene mode according to the situation” (P. 12) • Often, bright subjects (such as snow) turn out darker than their natural colors. Adjusting OF toward [+] makes the subject closer to their real shades. Conversely, when you are shooting dark subjects, it can be effective to adjust toward [–]. Sometimes, using the flash may not produce the brightness (exposure) that was intended. g “OF/< button Changing picture brightness (Exposure compensation)/ Printing pictures” (P. 14) • Set the flash to [#] (fill-in) to activate fill-in-flash. You can shoot a subject against backlight without the face of the subject appearing dark. [#] is effective not only for shooting against backlight, but also for shooting under fluorescent and other artificial lighting. g “Y# button Flash shooting” (P. 15) • Setting OF to [+] is effective when shooting against backlight. g “OF/< button Changing picture brightness (Exposure compensation)/ Printing pictures” (P. 14) • When [FACE DETECT] is set to [ON], faces in pictures appears bright, since adequate exposure for the detected face can be obtained even under backlight conditions. g “FACE DETECT Focusing on a face” (P. 22) Taking blur-free pictures without the flash The picture is too grainy Taking pictures of a white beach or snow scene Taking pictures of a subject against backlight d4368_e_0000_7.book Page 40 Friday, November 30, 2007 3:16 PM

Note • Avoid leaving the camera in places where chemical products are handled since this may result in corrosion. ( In addition to the batteries provided with the camera, the following types of battery can be used. Choose the power source best suited to the situation. AA alkaline batteries/Oxyride batteries The number of pictures that you can take may vary considerably depending on the battery manufacturer and shooting conditions. AA NiMH batteries (rechargeable batteries) Olympus NiMH batteries are rechargeable and economical. For details, refer to the instruction manual for your charger. ( Lithium battery packs (CR-V3) and AA manganese (zinc-carbon) batteries cannot be used. ( Power consumption by the camera varies depending on which functions are used. ( Power is consumed continuously during the conditions described below causing batteries to become exhausted quickly. • The zoom is used repeatedly. • The shutter button is pressed halfway repeatedly in shooting mode, activating the auto focus. • The monitor is left on for an extended period of time. • The camera is connected to a computer or printer. ( The battery life varies widely depending on the type of battery, manufacturer, shooting conditions, etc. Because of this, there may be cases where the camera turns itself off without displaying the battery level warning, or displays the battery level warning sooner than usual.

Appendix EN 47 Pictures can be recorded on the optional card. The internal memory and card are the camera’s media for recording pictures, similar to film in a film camera. Pictures recorded to the internal memory or card can be easily erased on the camera or processed using a computer. Unlike portable storage media, the internal memory cannot be removed or exchanged. The number of recordable pictures can be increased by using a card with a larger capacity. 1 Index area You can use this space to write the contents of the card. 2 Contact area The part where the data transferred from the camera enters the card. Do not touch this area directly. Compatible cards xD-Picture Card (16MB – 2GB) (Type H/M, Standard) Using the internal memory or card You can confirm on the monitor whether the internal memory or card is being used during shooting and playback operations.
