Before using your camera
Trial recording
Before you record one-time events, you may want to make a trial recording to make sure that the camera is working correctly.
No compensation for contents of the recording
Contents of the recording cannot be compensated for if recording or playback is not possible due to a malfunction of your camera or recording media, etc.
Back up recommendation
To avoid the potential risk of data loss, always copy (back up) data to a disk.
Notes on image data compatibility
• This camera conforms with the Design rule for
Camera File system universal standard established by the JEITA (Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries
Association).
• Playback of images recorded with your camera on other equipment and playback of images recorded or edited with other equipment on your camera are not guaranteed.
Precaution on copyright
Television programs, films, video tapes, and other materials may be copyrighted. Unauthorized recording of such materials may be contrary to the provision of the copyright laws.
Do not shake or strike the camera
In addition to malfunctions and inability to record images, this may render the “Memory Stick Duo” unusable or image data breakdown, damage or loss may occur.
LCD screen, LCD finder (only models with an LCD finder) and lens
• The LCD screen and the LCD finder are manufactured using extremely high-precision technology so over 99.99% of the pixels are operational for effective use. However, there may be some tiny black points and/or bright points (white, red, blue or green in color) that constantly appear on the LCD screen and the
LCD finder. These points are normal in the manufacturing process and do not affect the recording in any way.
• Be careful when placing the camera near a window or outdoors. Exposing the LCD screen, the finder or the lens to direct sunlight for long periods may cause malfunctions.
• Do not press the LCD screen hardly. The screen may be uneven and that may cause a malfunction.
• Do not press the lens portion hard, or it may cause the malfunction of the lens.
• Images may be trailed on the LCD screen in a cold location. This is not a malfunction.
Clean the flash surface before use
The heat of flash emission may cause dirt on the flash surface to become discolored or to stick to the flash surface, resulting in insufficient light emission.
Do not get the camera wet
When taking pictures outdoors in the rain or under similar conditions, be careful not to get the camera wet. Water entering the inside of the camera may cause malfunctions which in some cases may not be repairable. If moisture condensation occurs, see page 108 and follow the instructions on how to remove it before using the camera.
Do not expose the camera to sand or dust
Using the camera in sandy or dusty locations may cause malfunction.

Image size
You can choose image size (number of pixels) and image quality (compression ratio) based on the kind of images you want to shoot. The larger you make the image size and the higher you make the image quality, the better your image, but also the larger the amount of data needed to preserve your image. This means you can save fewer images in your “Memory Stick Duo.”
Choose an image size and quality appropriately for the kind of images you want to shoot.
• When images recorded using earlier Sony models are played back on this camera, the display may differ from the actual image size.
• When the images are viewed on the LCD screen of the camera, they all look the same size.
• Number of shooting images can differ from these values according to shooting conditions.
• When the number of remaining shooting images is greater than 9999, the “>9999” indicator appears on the LCD screen.
• You can resize the images later (Resize function, see page 67).

Zoom
Your camera is equipped with zoom functions that enlarge the image using optical zoom and two types of digital processing. Digital zoom can be selected from smart zoom or precision digital zoom.
When digital zoom is set, the zoom method switches from optical zoom to digital zoom when the zoom scale exceeds 3×.
To use only the optical zoom, set [Digital
Zoom] to [Off] on the Setup screen
(page 106). In this case, the digital zoom area does not appear in the zoom scale display bar on the LCD screen, and the maximum zoom is 3×. The enlargement method and the zoom scale differ according to the image size and the zoom type, so select the zoom to match the shooting purpose.
When digital zoom is set and you press the zoom button, the zoom scaling indicator appears on the LCD screen as follows.
• The indicator differs according to the zoom type.
– Optical zoom: – Smart zoom: – Precision digital zoom: • The AF range finder frame does not appear when using the digital zoom. The , or
indicators flashes, and AF operates with priority on subjects located near the center.
Smart zoom
The image is enlarged with almost no distortion. This lets you use smart zoom with the same feeling as optical zoom. To set smart zoom, set [Digital Zoom] to
[Smart] on the Setup screen (page 106).
When you purchase your camera, it is set to smart zoom.
The maximum zoom scale depends on the selected image size as follows.
When you purchase your camera, the image size is set to [5M]. Smart zoom cannot be used when the image size is set to [5M] or [3:2], so set a different image size.
• When using the smart zoom, the image on the
LCD screen may look rough. However, this phenomenon has no effect on the recorded image.
• You cannot use the smart zoom in the Multi
Burst mode.
Precision digital zoom
All image sizes are enlarged up to a maximum 6×. This function cuts out and enlarges a certain portion of the image, so the image quality deteriorates. To set precision digital zoom, set [Digital Zoom] to [Precision] on the Setup screen
(page 106).

Shooting close-ups — Macro
The close-ups (Macro) recording mode is used when zooming up subjects such as flowers or insects. Setting the zoom all the way to the W side lets you shoot subjects at distances as close as 8 cm. However, the minimum focus distance varies according to the zoom position. Therefore, shooting with the zoom set all the way to the W side is recommended.
When the zoom is set all the way to the W side: Approx. 8 cm (3 1/4 inches) from the lens surface
When the zoom is set all the way to the T side: Approx. 25 cm (9 7/8 inches) from the lens surface
• Using Spot AF is recommended (page 47).
