The following explains proper use of batteries and how to prolong their life. Incorrect use of batteries can cause shorter battery life, as well as leakage, excessive heat, fire or explosion. 1 Camera uses the Rechargeable Lithium-ion Battery * When shipped, the battery is not fully charged. Always charge the battery before using it. * When carrying the battery, install it in a digital camera or keep it in the soft case. ■ Battery Features • The battery gradually loses its charge even when not used. Use a battery that has been charged recently (in the last day or two) to take pictures. • To maximize the life of the battery, turn the camera off as quickly as possible when it is not being used. • The number of available frames will be lower in cold locations or at low temperatures. Take along a spare fully charged battery. You can also increase the amount of power produced by putting the battery in your pocket or another warm place to heat it and then loading it into the camera just before you take a picture. vi ■ Battery Life At normal temperatures, the battery can be used at least 300 times.

See Owner’s Manual for the procedure for “Discharging rechargeable batteries”. CAUTION Do not use the “Discharging rechargeable batteries” function when alkaline batteries being used. • To charge Ni-MH batteries, use the quick battery charger (sold separately). Refer to the instructions supplied with the charger to make sure that the charger is used correctly. • Do not use the battery charger to charge other batteries. • Note that the batteries feel warm after being charged. • Due to the way the camera is constructed, a small amount of current is used even when the camera is turned off. Note in particular that leaving Ni-MH batteries in the camera for a long period will overdischarge the batteries and may render them unusable even after recharging. • Ni-MH batteries will self-discharge even when not used, and the time for which they can be used may be shortened as a result. • Ni-MH batteries will deteriorate rapidly if over-discharged (e.g. by discharging the batteries in a flashlight). Use the “Discharging rechargeable batteries” function provided in the camera to discharge the batteries. • Ni-MH batteries have a limited service life. If a battery can only be used for a short time even after repeated discharge-charge cycles, it may have reached the end of its service life. ■ Disposing of Batteries • When disposing of batteries, do so in accordance with your local waste disposal regulations. 3 Notes on both models ( 1 , 2 ) ■ AC Power Adapter Always use the AC Power Adapter with the camera. The use of an AC Power adapter other than FUJIFILM AC Power Adapter can be damaged to your digital camera.

See the manuals provided with the AC power adapter and DC coupler for details. 9 Inserting a Memory Card Although the camera can store pictures in internal memory, optional SD memory cards (sold separately) can be used to store additional pictures. When no memory card is inserted, a appears in the monitor and internal memory is used for recording and playback. Note that because camera malfunction could cause internal memory to become corrupted, the pictures in internal memory should periodically be transferred to a computer and saved on the computer hard disk or on removable media such as CDs or DVDs. The pictures in internal memory can also be copied to a memory card (see page 99). To prevent internal memory from becoming full, be sure to delete pictures when they are no longer needed. When a memory card is inserted as described below, the card will be used for recording and playback. ■ Compatible Memory Cards SD and SDHC memory cards manufactured by FUJIFILM and SanDisk have been approved for use in the camera. A complete list of approved memory cards is available at http://www.fujifilm.com/products/ digital_cameras/index.html. Operation is not guaranteed with other cards. The camera can not be used with xD-Picture Cards or with MultiMediaCard (MMC) devices. c Caution SD memory cards can be locked, making it impossible to format the card or to record or delete images. Before inserting an SD memory card, slide the write-protect switch to the unlocked position.

Insert the memory card. 2 Holding the memory card in the orientation shown, slide it in until it clicks into place at the back of the slot. Click! 3 Caution Be sure card is in correct orientation; do not insert at an angle or use force. If the card is not correctly inserted, pictures will be recorded to internal memory. Removing Memory Cards After confirming that the camera is off, press the card in and then release it slowly. The card can now be removed by hand. First Steps a Note Be sure the camera is off before opening the memory card slot cover. c Cautions • The memory card may spring out if you remove your finger immediately after pushing the card in. • Memory cards may be warm to the touch after being removed from the camera. This is normal and does not indicate a malfunction. 11 Inserting a Memory Card c Cautions • Do not turn the camera off or remove the memory card while the memory card is being formatted or data are being recorded to or deleted from the card. Failure to observe this precaution could damage the card. • Format memory cards before first use or after using them in a computer or other device. For more information on formatting memory cards, see page 109. • Memory cards are small and can be swallowed; keep out of reach of children. If a child swallows a memory card, seek medical assistance immediately. • miniSD or microSD adapters that are larger or smaller than the standard dimensions of an SD card may not eject normally; if the card does not eject, take the camera to an authorized service representative. Do not forcibly remove the card. • Do not affix labels to memory cards. Peeling labels can cause camera malfunction. • Movie recording may be interrupted with some types of SD memory card. Use a card with a class 4 write speed (4 MB/s) or better when shooting HD movies. • The data in internal memory may be erased or corrupted when the camera is repaired. Please note that the repairer will be able to view pictures in internal memory. • Formatting a memory card or internal memory in the camera creates a folder in which pictures are stored. Do not rename or delete this folder or use a computer or other device to edit, delete, or rename image files. Always use the camera to delete pictures from memory cards and internal memory; before editing or renaming files, copy them to a computer and edit or rename the copies, not the originals. 12 Turning the Camera on and Off Rotate the ON/OFF switch to ON to turn the camera on. b Tip: Auto Power Off The camera will turn off automatically if no operations are performed for the length of time selected in the M AUTO POWER OFF menu (pg. 111). To reactivate the camera after it has turned off automatically, turn the ON/OFF switch to OFF and then back to ON.

Depending on the subject, the effects of a F-CHROME may not be visible in the display. 87 Using the Menus: Shooting Mode b FACE DETECTION If ON is selected, the camera automatically detects human faces anywhere in the frame and sets focus and exposure for shots that emphasize portrait subjects. Choose to prevent the camera from focusing on the background when taking group portraits in vertical or horizontal orientation. If a face is detected, it will be indicated by a green border. If there is more than one face in the frame, the camera will select the face closest to the Green border center; other faces are indicated by white borders (some time may be required if the number of faces is very large). If no face is detected, the camera will focus on the subject at the center of the display. 88 c Caution In some modes, the camera may set exposure for the frame as a whole rather than the portrait subject. If the subject moves just before the shutter is released, their face may not be in the area indicated by the green border when the picture is taken. Intelligent Face Detection Intelligent Face Detection is recommended when using the self-timer for group- or self-portraits (pg. 41). 7 When a picture taken with Intelligent Face Detection is displayed, the camera can automatically select faces for red-eye removal (pg. 95), playback zoom (pg. 56), slide shows (pg. 94), printing (pg. 71), and cropping (pg. 97). Using the Menus: Shooting Mode J AE BKT EV STEPS Choose the size of the exposure bracketing increment used when O (AE BKT) is selected in continuous shooting. Choose from increments of ±1/3 EV, ±2/3 EV, and ±1 EV (for an explanation of the term “EV,” see the Glossary on page 128). I FLASH Adjust flash brightness. Choose from values between +2/3 EV and –2/3 EV (the default setting is ±0). Note that the desired results may not be achieved depending on shooting conditions and the distance to the subject. g EXTERNAL FLASH Choose ON when using an optional flash unit mounted on the camera hot shoe. c Cautions • Maximum shutter speed is 1/4000 s. The flash may not fully light the subject at speeds faster than 1/1000 s. • Use auto or custom white balance (pg. 53). • If the built-in flash is raised when ON is selected for g EXTERNAL FLASH, the built-in flash will fire once to provide a signal for the optional flash unit to fire. a Note The camera can be used with flash units that provide aperture adjustment, external metering, and sensitivity control.

Storage and Use If the camera will not be used for an extended period, remove the batteries and memory card. Do not store or use the camera in locations that are: • exposed to rain, steam, or smoke • very humid or extremely dusty • exposed to direct sunlight or very high temperatures, such as in a closed vehicle on a sunny day • extremely cold • subject to strong vibration • exposed to strong magnetic fields, such as near a broadcasting antenna, power line, radar emitter, motor, transformer, or magnet • in contact with volatile chemicals such as pesticides • next to rubber or vinyl products ■ Water and Sand Exposure to water and sand can also damage the camera and its internal circuitry and mechanisms. When using the camera at the beach or seaside, avoid exposing the camera to water or sand. Do not place the camera on a wet surface. 116 ■ Condensation Sudden increases in temperature, such as occur when entering a heated building on a cold day, can cause condensation inside the camera. If this occurs, turn the camera off and wait an hour before turning it on again. If condensation forms on the memory card, remove the card and wait for the condensation to dissipate. Cleaning Use a blower to remove dust from the lens and monitor, then gently wipe with a soft, dry cloth. Any remaining stains can be removed by wiping gently with a piece of FUJIFILM lens-cleaning paper to which a small amount of lens-cleaning fluid has been applied. Care should be taken to avoid scratching the lens or monitor. The camera body can be cleaned with a soft, dry cloth. Do not use alcohol, thinner, or other volatile chemicals.

Troubleshooting CAN NOT BE PRINTED — 127 Glossary DPOF (Digital Print Order Format): A standard that allows pictures to be printed from “print orders” stored in internal memory or on a memory card. The information in the order includes the pictures to be printed and the number of copies of each picture. EV (Exposure Value): The exposure value is determined by the sensitivity of the image sensor and the amount of light that enters the camera while the image sensor is exposed. Each time the amount of light doubles, EV increases by one; each time the amount of light is halved, EV decreases by one. The amount of light entering the camera can be controlled by adjusting aperture and shutter speed. Exif Print: A standard for storing information with pictures for optimal color reproduction during printing. HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface): An interface standard for the transmission of images and sound that adds audio input to the DVI interface used to connect computers to displays. JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group): A compressed file format for color images. The higher the compression rate, the greater the loss of information and more noticeable drop in quality when the picture is displayed. MOV: A movie file format (extension “.mov”) developed by Apple, Inc., and viewed using QuickTime Player. This format is popular on the Internet. WAV (Waveform Audio Format): A standard Windows audio file format. WAV files have the extension “*.WAV” and may be compressed or uncompressed. The camera uses uncompressed WAV. WAV files can be played using Windows Media Player or QuickTime 3.0 or later. Appendix 128 White balance: The human brain automatically adapts to changes in the color of light, with the result that objects that appear white under one light source still appear white when the color of the light source changes. Digital cameras can mimic this adjustment by processing images according to the color of the light source. This process is known as “white balance.” Internal Memory/Memory Card Capacity The following table shows the recording time or number of pictures available at different image sizes. All figures are approximate; file size varies with the scene recorded, producing wide variations in the number of files that can be stored. The number of exposures or length remaining may not diminish at an even rate. A limited number of test pictures can be taken when no memory card is inserted.
