Battery Charge Indicator

  • The LCD screen has a picture of a battery that shows in black & white how much time is available to shoot pictures before the battery needs to be recharged.

    • Black indicates actual remaining time, with minutes shown in text

    • White indicates portion of battery charge already used

How Long Does the Battery Last?

The chart gives an approximation of the number of still images you can shoot and the battery life that you can expect when using a fully charged battery at room temperature and shooting in normal mode.

How Long Does the Battery Last for movies?

The chart shows how long the battery can be expected to last when shooting movies at 160 (Mail) image size. Both number of images and battery life will decrease with use of flash, frequent zooming, and turning the camera on and off many times.

Auto Power-Off

When using the battery pack, the camera will turn itself off after 3 minutes of non-use in order to conserve the battery power.This does not apply when camera is plugged into a wall outlet.

The Control Button

You will use the control button to select menu items, keep or discard images, and change the set-up.

Each time, use the directional arrows to select the value wanted, then press the center bump to confirm the selection.

The clock setting

You have the choice of whether to have the date & time show on the image.

Turn the Mode Dial to Set-Up to access date & time options.

If the battery is fully discharged, the Clock Set screen will appear and you will need to re-do this step.

Inserting & Removing a Disc

  • Open the disc cover

    • push the disc cover lever down to open

  • Put an 8 cm CD-R or CD-RW disc in place

    • Printed side up

    • Push down on center of disc until it clicks into place

  • Close disc cover


  • When ready to remove the disc:

    • make sure the ACCESS lamp is NOT flashing

    • Wait for disc to stop rotating

Initializing a Disc

  • Initialization is needed for a disc to record images.

  • When you perform finalization on a disc to view images via your computer’s CD-ROM drive, initialization will occur automatically so you can continue to record images on the disc.

  • When you insert a new disc and turn the Mode setting to the camera icon, an initialization wizard will guide you through the initialization process. Just follow the steps.

Set the Mode Dial to the camera icon and turn on the power.

Press the Image Size button. the icon looks like a dot-filled square (next to the garbage can).

Select the size of images you want to shoot. Use the Control Button to select and choose.

Plug the power cord to the AC Adaptor and then to a wall outlet.

Turn on computer & camera.

Connect USB cable to the USB jack of camera.

Connect other end of USB cable to computer at a USB port. (Rear port recommended for a desktop computer.)

After following steps on previous screen, wait for the PTP Manager to start. (This takes some time, be patient.)

A wizard will begin to walk you through the process.

Select the images to copy to the computer, specify copy destination (usually “My Pictures”), and click “Finish.”

If the wizard does not start on its own:

Go to “My Computer” on desktop or by way of start button.

Select the digital camera as the device to use.

Select “Copy Images to Computer.”
