Basic techniques for better images
When you press the shutter button halfway down, the camera adjusts the focus automatically
(Auto Focus). Remember to press the shutter button only halfway down.
To shoot a still image difficult to focus on t [Focus] (page 31)
If the image looks blurred even after focusing, it may be because of camera shake. t See
“Hints for preventing blur” (below).
Focus
Focusing on a subject successfully
Press fully down straight away
Press halfway down, then Flashing,lit/beeps Press fully down
Hints for preventing blur
Hold the camera steadily, keeping your arms at your side. Also, you can stabilize the camera by leaning against a tree or a building beside you. Using a tripod, and using the flash in dark places are also recommended.
Focus Exposure Color Quality
This section describes the basics so you can enjoy your camera. It tells you how to use various camera functions such as the mode dial (page 25), the menus (page 28), and so on.

Enjoying the camera
You can create various images by adjusting the exposure and the ISO sensitivity. Exposure is the amount of light that the camera will receive when you release the shutter.
Exposure
Adjusting the light intensity
Overexposure
= too much light
Whitish image
The exposure is automatically set to the proper value in the auto adjustment mode.
However, you can adjust it manually using the functions below.
[Manual exposure]:Allows you to adjust the shutter speed and aperture value manually. t page 26
[EV]:Allows you to adjust the exposure that has been determined by the camera. t page
30
[Metering Mode]:Allows you to change the part of the subject to be measured to determine the exposure. t page 32
Correct exposure
Underexposure
= too little light
Darker image
Characteristics of “shutter speed” Characteristics of “aperture”
(F value)
Faster
Moving objects appear stopped.
Slower
Moving objects appear to flow.
Open
In-focus range narrows, both backward and forward.
Close
In-focus range widens, both backward and forward.
Shutter speed = Length of time the camera receives light
Aperture = Size of the opening allowing light to pass through
ISO = Recording sensitivity
Exposure:12
Adjusting the ISO sensitivity
ISO is unit of measurement (sensitivity), estimating how much light an image pickup device
(equivalent to photo films) receives. Even when the exposure is the same, images differ depending on the ISO sensitivity.
[ISO] adjusts the sensitivity t page 33
The apparent color of the subject is affected by the lighting conditions.
Example: The color of an image affected by light sources
The color tones are adjusted automatically in the auto adjustment mode.
However, you can adjust color tones manually with [White Bal] (page 33).
High ISO sensitivity
Records a bright image even when shooting in a dark location. However, the image tends to become noisy.
Low ISO sensitivity
Records a smoother image.
However, the image may become darker.

Enjoying the camera
A digital image is made up of a collection of small dots called pixels.
If it contains a large number of pixels, the picture becomes large, it takes up more memory, and the image is displayed in fine detail. “Image size” is shown by the number of pixels.
Although you cannot see the differences on the screen of the camera, the fine detail and data processing time differ when the image is printed or displayed on a computer screen.

When you do not have a “Memory Stick”
(Recording with the internal memory)
The camera has 32 MB of internal memory. This memory is not removable. Even when there is no “Memory Stick” inserted in the camera, you can record images using this internal memory.
• Movies with the image size set to [640(Fine)] cannot be recorded using the internal memory.
We recommend that you copy (back up) data without fail using one of the following methods.
To copy (back up) data on a “Memory Stick”
Prepare a “Memory Stick” with a capacity of 32 MB or more, then perform the procedure explained in [Copy] (page 51).
To copy (back up) data on a hard disc of your computer
Perform the procedure on pages 57 to 61 without a “Memory Stick” inserted in the camera.
• You cannot move image data on a “Memory Stick” to the internal memory.
• By connecting the camera and a computer with a USB cable, you can copy data stored in the internal memory to a computer, but you cannot copy data on a computer to the internal memory.
When a “Memory Stick” (not supplied) is inserted
[Recording]: Images are recorded on the “Memory
Stick”.
[Playback]: Images on the “Memory Stick” are played back.
[Menu, Setup, etc.]: Various functions can be performed on images on the “Memory Stick”.

Battery life and number of images that can be recorded/viewed
The tables show the approximate number of images that can be recorded/viewed and the battery life when you shoot images in
[Normal] mode with batteries at full capacity and at an ambient temperature of
25°C (77°F). The numbers of images that can be recorded or viewed take into account changing the “Memory Stick” as necessary.
Note that the actual numbers may be less than those indicated depending on the conditions of use.
• The battery capacity decreases as the number of uses increases and also over time (page 91).
• The number of images that can be recorded/viewed and the battery life are decreased under the following conditions:– The surrounding temperature is low
– The flash is used
– The camera has been turned on and off many times
– The zoom is used frequently
– [LCD Backlight] is set to [Bright]
– [AF Mode] is set to [Monitor]
– The battery power is low
When shooting still images
Shooting in the following situations:– (P.Quality) is set to [Fine]
– [AF Mode] is set to [Single]
– Shooting once every 30 seconds
– The zoom is switched alternately between the
W and T ends
– The flash strobes once every two times
– The power turns on and off once every ten times
• The measurement method is based on the CIPA standard.
(CIPA: Camera & Imaging Products
Association)
• Number of shooting image does not change depending on the image size.
When viewing still images
Viewing single images in order at about three second intervals
• Shooting movies continuously with an image size of [160]
