If  the  memory  card  is  subjected  to  any  of  the  following,  the  
recorded  data  may  become  corrupted  :
  -­    
When  the  memory  card  is  used  incorrectly.
  -­    
If  the  power  is  switched  off  or  the  memory  card  is  removed  while  
recording,  deleting  (formatting)  or  reading.
!    
Samsung  cannot  be  held  responsible  for  lost  data.
!    
It  is  advisable  to  copy  important  data  onto  other  media  as  backup  e.g.  
hard  disks,  CD  etc.
!    
If  there  is  insufficient  memory  available  :
A  [Memory  Full]  message  will  appear  and  the  camera  will  not  
operate.  To  optimize  the  amount  of  memory  in  the  camera,  replace  
the  memory  card  or  delete  unnecessary  images  stored  on  the  
memory  card.
!    
  
Don't  remove  the  memory  card  when  the  camera  status  lamp  is  
blinking  as  this  may  cause  damage  to  data  on  the  memory  card.
!    
Be  sure  to  format  the  memory  card  (see  p.54)  if  you  are  using  a  
newly  purchased  memory  card  for  the  first  time,  if  it  contains  data  
that  the  camera  cannot  recognize,  or  if  it  contains  images  captured  
with a different camera.
!   
Turn  off  the  camera  power  whenever  the  memory  card  is  being  
inserted or removed.
!    
Repeated  use  of  the  memory  card  will  eventually  reduce  the  
memory  card’s  performance.  Should  this  be  the  case,  you  will  
need  to  purchase  a  new  memory  card.  Wear  and  tear  on  the  
memory  card  is  not  covered  by  the  Samsung  warranty.
!    
The  memory  card  is  an  electronic  precision  device.  
Do  not  bend,  drop  or  subject  the  memory  card  to  any  heavy  
impact.
!    
Do  not  store  the  memory  card  in  an  environment  with  strong  
electronic  or  magnetic  fields,  e.g.  near  loud  speakers  or  TV  
receivers.
! Please do not use or store in an environment where there are
extremes in temperature.
!    
Do  not  allow  the  memory  card  to  become  dirty  or  to  come  into  
contact  with  any  liquid.  Should  this  happen,  clean  the  memory  
card with a soft cloth.
!    
  
Please  keep  the  memory  card  in  its  case  when  not  in  use.
!    
During  and  after  periods  of  extended  use,  you  may  notice  that  the  
memory  card  is  warm.  This  is  perfectly  normal.
!    
Do  not  use  a  memory  card  that  is  used  in  another  digital  camera.  
To  use  the  memory  card  in  this  camera,  format  the  memory  card  
before  using  this  camera.  
!    
Do  not  use  a  memory  card  formatted  by  another  digital  camera  or  
memory  card  reader.

prevents  image  files  from  being  deleted  or  formatted.  By  sliding  
the  switch  to  the  bottom  of  the  SD/SDHC  memory  card,  the  data  
will  be  protected.  By  sliding  the  switch  to  the  top  of  the  SD/SDHC  
memory  card,  the  data  protection  will  be  cancelled.
!    
Slide  the  switch  to  the  top  of  the  SD/SDHC  memory  card  before  
taking a picture.
When  using  a  1GB  SD  memory,  the  specified  shooting  capacity  will  be  
as  follows.  These  figures  are  approximate  as  image  capacities  can  be  
affected  by  variables  such  as  subject  matter  and  memory  card  type.

for general use.
[Spot]  ( )  :  Only  the  rectangular  area  in  the  center  of  the  LCD  
monitor  will  be  metered  for  light.  This  is  suitable  
when  the  subject  in  the  center  is  exposed  correctly,  
regardless  of  the  back  lighting.
[Center-­weighted]  ( )  :  Exposure  will  be  calculated  based  on  an  
average  of  the  available  light  in  the  image  
area.  However,  the  calculation  will  be  
biased  towards  the  center  of  the  image  
area.  This  is  suitable  for  taking  a  picture  of
