for the first time, if it contains data that the camera cannot recognise, or if it contains images
captured with a different camera.
ƃ Turn off the camera power whenever the memory card is being inserted or removed.
ƃ 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.
ƃ The memory card is an electronic precision device.
Do not bend, drop or subject the memory card to any heavy impact.
ƃ Do not store the memory card in an environment with strong electronic or magnetic fields,
e.g. near loud speakers or TV receivers.
ƃ Please do not use or store in an environment where there are extremes in temperature.
ƃ Please keep the memory card in its case when not in use.
ƃ During and after periods of extended use, you may notice that the memory card is warm.
This is perfectly normal.
ƃ Do not use a memory card that is used in another digital camera.
To use the memory card in this camera, first format the memory card by using the camera.
ƃ Do not use a memory card formatted by another digital camera or memory card reader.
ƃ 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/ formattting
or reading.
ƃ Samsung cannot be held responsible for lost data.
ƃ It is advisable to copy important data onto other media as back-up e.g. floppy disks, hard
disks, CD etc.
ƃ If there is insufficient memory available
: A [Card Full!] message will appear and the camera will not operate. To optimise the amount
of memory in the camera, replace the memory card or delete unnecessary images stored
on the memory.

the camera on a solid surface or change the flash mode to flash shot mode.
ƈ Compensate for shooting into light:
It is advisable not to take pictures into direct sunlight as this can make the foreground very
dark. However, should your desired shot require this please use the [Backlight] from the
scene shooting mode (see page 65), fill-in flash (see page 59), spot metering (see page 43),
or exposure compensation (see page 50).
ƈ Avoid obstructing the lens or the flash when you capture an image.
ƈ Using the Rear LCD extensively will drain the battery.
We recommend turning off the Rear LCD and using the Finder LCD and Top LCD as often as
possible in order to extend battery life.
ƈ Under certain conditions the auto focus system may not perform as expected, for example;
- When photographing a subject that has little contrast.
- If the subject is highly reflective or shiny.
- If the subject is moving at high speed.
- When there is strong reflected light, or when the background is very bright.
- When the subject matter has only horizontal lines or the subject is very narrow (such as a
stick or flagpole).
- When the surroundings are very dark.

You can increase the shutter speed while the same amount of light is present, by increasing
the ISO sensitivity. However, the image may be saturated in high luminance. The higher the
ISO value, the higher the camera’s sensitivity to light is and therefore the greater its capacity
to take pictures in dark conditions. However, the noise level in the image will increase as the
ISO value increases, making the image appear coarse.
