On internal rechargeable 
button battery

This camera has an internal rechargeable 
button battery for maintaining the date and 
time and other settings regardless of 
whether the power is on or off. 
This rechargeable button battery is 
continually charged as long as you are using 
the camera. However, if you use the camera 
for only short periods it discharges 
gradually, and if you do not use the camera 
at all for about one month it becomes 
completely discharged. In this case, be sure 
to charge this rechargeable button battery 
before using the camera. 
However, even if this rechargeable button 
battery is not charged, you can still use the 
camera as long as you do not record the date 
and time. 

Charging method

Install charged size AAA Nickel-Metal 
Hydride batteries, and leave the camera for 
24 hours or more with the power off.

On “Memory Stick”

“Memory Stick” is a new compact, portable 
and versatile IC recording medium with a 
data capacity that exceeds the capacity of a 
floppy disk.
In addition to exchanging data between 
“Memory Stick” compatible equipment, 
you can also use a “Memory Stick” to store 
data as a type of detachable external 
recording media.

There are two types of “Memory Stick”: 
ordinary “Memory Stick” and  “MagicGate 
Memory Stick” that is equipped with the 
MagicGate* copyright protection 
technology. You can use both types of 
“Memory Stick” with your camera. 
However, because your camera does not 
support the MagicGate standards, data 
recorded with your camera is not subject to 
MagicGate copyright protection.

In addition, you can also use “Memory 
Stick Duo” or “Memory Stick PRO” with 
your camera.

* MagicGate is copyright protection technology 

that uses encryption technology.

“Memory Stick” formatted with a computer is 
not guaranteed to operate with this camera.

** The camera cannot record or play back the 

data needed by the MagicGate function. 
All “Memory Stick” media operations are not 
necessarily guaranteed.
