installed”.

“Inserting the battery and card” (p. 11), “Charging 
the battery with the included USB-AC adapter” 
(p. 12)

“No picture is taken when the shutter button is pressed”.

 

Cancel sleep mode.
To save battery power, the camera automatically 
goes into sleep mode and the monitor turns off 
if there is no operation for 3 minutes when the 
camera is turned on. No picture is taken even if 
the shutter button is fully pressed in this mode. 
Operate the zoom lever or other buttons to restore 
the camera from sleep mode before taking a 
picture. If the camera is left for another 12 minutes, 
it automatically turns off. Press the n button 
to turn the camera on.

 

Press the 

q button to switch to the shooting 

mode.

 

Wait until 

#(fl ash charge) stops blinking before 

taking pictures.

 

With prolonged camera use, the internal 
temperature may increase, resulting in automatic 
shutdown. If this occurs, remove the battery from 
the camera and wait until the camera has suffi ciently 
cooled. The camera’s external temperature may 
also increase during use, however this is normal and 
does not indicate malfunction.

“Diffi cult to see”.

 

Condensation may have occurred. Turn off the 
power, and wait for the camera body to become 
acclimated to the surrounding temperature and dry 
out before taking pictures.

“The light is caught in the picture”.

 

Shooting with fl ash in dark situations results in an 
image with many fl ash refl ections on dust in the air.

  The time until the date and time settings return to 

the default setting varies depending on how long 
the batteries have been loaded.

Miscellaneous

“The camera makes a noise when taking pictures”.

 

The camera may activate the lens and make a 
noise even if no operation is performed. This 
is because the camera automatically performs 
actions of auto focus as far as it is ready to shoot.
