Health and safety information
Always comply with the following precautions and usage tips to avoid dangerous situations and ensure peak
performance of your camera.
Warning—situations that could cause injury to
yourself or others
Caution—situations that could cause damage to
your camera or other equipment
Note—notes, usage tips, or additional
information
Do not use your camera near flammable or
explosive gases and liquids
Do not use your camera near fuels, combustibles,
or flammable chemicals. Do not store or carry
flammable liquids, gases, or explosive materials in the
same compartment as the camera or its accessories.
Keep your camera away from small children and
pets
Keep your camera and all accessories out of the reach
of small children and animals. Small parts may cause
choking or serious injury if swallowed. Moving parts and
accessories may present physical dangers as well.
Prevent damage to subjects’ eyesight
Do not use the flash in close proximity (closer than
1 m/3 ft) to people or animals. Using the flash too
close to your subject’s eyes can cause temporary or
permanent damage.
Handle and dispose of batteries and chargers
with care
Use only Samsung-approved batteries and
chargers. Incompatible batteries and chargers can
cause serious injuries or damage to your camera.
Never dispose of batteries in a fire. Follow all local
regulations when disposing of used batteries.
Never place batteries or cameras on or in heating
devices, such as microwave ovens, stoves, or
radiators. Batteries may explode when overheated.
Handle and store your camera carefully and
sensibly
Do not allow your camera to get wet—liquids can
cause serious damage. Do not handle your camera
with wet hands. Water damage to your camera can
void your manufacturer’s warranty.

Do not expose the camera to direct sunlight or
high temperatures for an extended period of
time. Prolonged exposure to sunlight or extreme
temperatures can cause permanent damage to your
camera’s internal components.
Avoid using or storing your camera in dusty, dirty,
humid, or poorly-ventilated areas to prevent damage

Remove the batteries from your camera when storing
it for an extended period of time. Installed batteries
may leak or corrode over time and cause serious
damage to your camera.
Protect your camera from sand and dirt when using it
on beaches or in other similar areas.
Protect your camera from impact, shock, bending, or
press of heavy goods when you connect either cable
or power code. It may damage your camera or cable
or cause by electric shock or fire.
Exercise caution when connecting cables or adaptors
and installing batteries and memory cards. Forcing
the connectors, improperly connecting cables, or
improperly installing batteries and memory cards can
damage ports, connectors, and accessories.
Do not insert foreign objects into any of your
camera’s compartments, slots, or access points.
Damage due to improper use may not be covered by
your warranty.
Do not use broken power cord, plug, or wall-outlet. It

Protect batteries, chargers, and memory cards
from damage
Avoid exposing batteries or memory cards to very
cold or very hot temperatures (below 0º C/32º F or
above 40º C/104º F). Extreme temperatures can
reduce the charging capacity of your batteries and
can cause memory cards to malfunction.

temporary or permanent battery damage.
Prevent memory cards from making contact with
liquids, dirt, or foreign substances. If dirty, wipe the

Using incompatible accessories may damage your
camera, cause injury, or void your warranty.
Protect your camera’s lens
Do not expose the lens to direct sunlight, as this may
discolor the image sensor or cause it to malfunction.
Protect your lens from fingerprints and scratches. Clean
your lens with a soft, clean, debris-free lens cloth.
Allow only qualified personnel to service your

A histogram is a graph that shows the brightness
distribution of picture. This represents a dark picture
if the graph is inclined to the left and if the graph is
leaning to the right, this represents a bright picture. The
height of graph is related to the color information and
the graph gets higher if a specific color is distributed
more.

using the expanded image, the focus can be adjusted
more accurately. (p. 63)
Getting your subject in focus
Please try to use the focus lock function.
Adjust the focus by using the half-shutter function where the
camera can focus easily. Then, simply press the [Shutter]
button after moving the camera to a desired composition. Keep
pressing and holding down the half-shutter until you actually
make a photo shot.
Under the half-shutter state, press the [AEL] button of the
camera to fix the exposure value and focus information at the
same time according to the setting. To cancel the function, press
the [AEL] button once more. (p. 77)

The OIS function may not work well in the following
situations:
When you take a picture while tracing a moving
object
When a big vibration occurs beyond the range of
stabilization
When the shutter speed is too slow due to a
circumstance like night shooting
When the battery capacity is not sufficient
When you are shooting a close-up shot
When you use a tripod, please disable the OIS
function since the image can be shaken due to the
vibration of OIS function.
If the camera is struck or dropped while you are
taking a picture, the display can be impaired. If this
occurs, turn the camera off and then on, and the
camera should operate normally again.
Since the battery consumption can increase along
with the use of OIS function, it is recommended to

Depth preview
When you are not using the depth preview function, you can only see the subject through the camera in the condition of
the maximum aperture (minimum f-number) in the shooting mode.
Use the Depth of Field Preview function before taking a picture to view the depth of field of the scene as it looks with
the lens set to its current f-stop number.
1 Press the [Depth Preview] in the Shooting
mode.
2 You can check the depth of field result
actually taken through the display and
viewfinder.
What is the depth of field?
When you focus on a specific subject, there is a range
in which objects closer and further away are all in focus.
This focused range is called the depth of field.
The wider the wide-angle lens, the higher the aperture
value, the greater the depth of field.
For example, the aperture stop, f 11 is higher than f 2.8.

H.264 (MPEG-4 part10/AVC) is the latest video
coding format established in 2003 collaboratively by
ISO-IEC and ITU-T. Since this format uses a high
compression rate, more data can be saved in less
memory space.
If you use a slow writing memory card, your movie's
recording can be interrupted because the card can
not process data at the rate the video is being shot.
If this occurs, replace the card with a faster memory
card or reduce the image size.
If you have the image stabilizer option on when
shooting a movie, the camera may record the image
stabilizer sound.
When the size of a movie file exceeds 4GB, the
camera automatically stops recording. If this occurs,
continue the movie by starting a new movie file.
When formatting a memory card, always format using
this camera. If you format on another camera or a
PC, you can cause a change in the capacity of the
card or make it incompatible with your camera.
If you remove the camera lens while recording a movie,
the recording will be interrupted. Do not change the lens
while recording.
While you shoot a movie, the camera can record
the sounds of the zoom mechanism working and
the sounds the camera makes when you press the
buttons.
If you change the shooting angle of the camera
suddenly while shooting a movie, the camera may not
be able to record images accurately. We recommend
using a tripod when shooting a movie. In this way, you
can minimize camera shake.
In the Movie Shooting mode, the camera supports only
the Multi AF function. You can not use any other focus
area setting functions, such as Face Detection AF.
