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, ?lms, 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 ?nder (only models with an LCD ?nder) and lens
• The LCD screen and the LCD ?nder 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 ?nder. 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 ?nder 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.
• Images may be trailed on the LCD screen in a cold location. This is not a malfunction.
Clean the ?ash surface before use
The heat of ?ash emission may cause dirt on the
?ash surface to become discolored or to stick to the ?ash surface, resulting in insuf?cient 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 128 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.
Do not aim the camera at the sun or other bright light
This may cause irrecoverable damage to your eyes. Or it may cause the malfunction of your camera.
Notes on the camera locations
Do not use the camera near a location that generates strong radio wave or emits radiation.
The camera may not be able to record or play back properly.5

Image size and quality
You can choose image size (number of pixels) and image quality (compression ratio) based on the kind of images you want to shoot.
The image size is shown by the number of pixels (dots) (horizontal × vertical), which compose an image. For example, a
5M (2592×1944) size image indicates that there are 2592 pixels horizontally and 1944 pixels vertically. The larger the number of pixels, the larger the image size.
You can select from Fine (high quality) or Standard image quality. Each uses a different compression ratio.
When you select Fine, the image quality improves as the image size increases, but the amount of recorded data also increases and the number of images that can be recorded on a “Memory Stick Duo” decreases. Refer to the table on the right and choose the image size and image quality appropriate to the kind of images you want to shoot.

The maximum optical zoom is 3×.
Digital zoom
The camera has the following two types of digital zoom.
Smart zoom
The image is enlarged with almost no distortion. This lets you use smart zoom with the same feeling as optical zoom.
The maximum smart zoom scale depends on the selected image size as shown in the following table.34

Shooting close-ups — Macro
The close-ups (Macro) recording mode is used when zooming up subjects such as
?owers or insects. Setting the zoom all the way to the W side lets you shoot subjects at distances as close as 8 cm (3 1/4 inches).
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 57).

No indicator (Auto): The ?ash automatically strobes when shooting images in a dark place. The factory setting is Auto.
(Forced ?ash): The ?ash strobes regardless of the surrounding brightness.
S L (Slow synchro): The ?ash strobes regardless of the surrounding brightness.
The shutter speed is slow in a dark place, so you can clearly shoot the background that is out of ?ash light.
(No ?ash): The ?ash does not strobe.
• If the menu is currently displayed, press
MENU ?rst so that the menu disappears.
• The recommended shooting distance using the ?ash is approx. 0.1 m to 1.7 m (4 inches to 5 feet 6 7/8 inches) (W)/0.5 m to 1.6 m

T33) (When [ISO] is set to [Auto] in the menu settings).
• The ?ash strobes twice. The ?rst time is the pre-?ash which is used to adjust the ?ash light quantity, and the second time is the actual ?ash during which the image is recorded.
• You can change the brightness of the ?ash with
(Flash Level) in the menu settings (page

?ash while (Camera) in the menu is set to
[Auto] in the menu.)
• When using the
S L
(Slow synchro) or
(No ?ash) mode, the shutter speed becomes slower in dark places, so using a tripod is recommended.
• While charging the ?ash, the /CHG lamp
?ashes. After the charging is complete, the lamp goes out and ?ash mode is ready.
• Flash mode setting is maintained even when the power is turned off.
To prevent subjects’ eyes from appearing red
The ?ash pre-strobes twice or more before shooting to reduce the red-eye phenomenon.
Set [Red Eye Reduction] to [On] on the
Setup screen (page 124). The indicator appears on the LCD screen.

?

Red-eye reduction takes approximately one second before actually shooting the image, so hold the camera ?rmly to avoid shaking.
In addition, be sure to tell the subject to hold still.
• Red-eye reduction may not produce the desired effects depending on individual differences, the distance to the subject, if the subject does not see the pre-strobe, or other conditions. In addition, red-eye reduction is more effective under bright lighting and when closer to the subject.38
