LCD Panel
The liquid crystal panel of the monitor screen uses high-precision technology that
provides a pixel yield in excess of 99.99%. This means that some very small number
of pixels may not light or may remain lit at all times. This is due to the characteristics
of the liquid crystal panel, and does not indicate malfunction.

The camera’s monitor screen can be tiled upwards
up to 180 degrees. This makes it easy to compose
self-portraits and to shoot from low angles.
Handsfree Self-portraits
You can control operation of the self-timer from a
distance by waving your hand, which makes it easier to
shoot self-portraits from a distance.
Make-up Bracketing (Make-up BKT)
Make-up Bracketing (Make-up BKT) lets you shoot three
versions of the same image with the press of the shutter
button, each with a different Skin Tone setting.
Triple Shot
Pressing the shutter button shoots a burst of three
images and stores them in memory. This feature is
great for making sure you don’t miss those special
moments when kids are around.

Quick Start Basics
IMPORTANT!
• A battery that has not been used for a long time, or ambient temperature extremes
can cause charging to take longer than normal. If charging takes longer than about
five hours, a timer will terminate it automatically, even if the battery is not fully
charged. This is indicated by the back lamp flashing red. If the battery has not been
used for a very long time, charging may be terminated automatically and the back
lamp may start flashing red after only about 60 minutes. In either case, disconnect
the USB cable from the camera and then reconnect it to resume charging.
• Make sure that you insert the cable connector into the [USB] port until you feel it
click securely into place. Failure to insert the connector fully can result in poor
communication or malfunction.
• Note that even while the connector is fully inserted, you
still will be able to see the metal part of the connector as
shown in the illustration.
• Pressing [ON/OFF] (Power) while the USB-AC adaptor is
connected to the camera will turn on the camera with
power being supplied by the battery. Because of this,
charging will stop.
• The USB-AC adaptor will become warm during charging.
This is normal and does not indicate malfunction.

).
• If the camera is on, press [ON/OFF] (Power) to turn it off before connecting it to
your computer.
IMPORTANT!
• The first time you connect the camera to your computer with the USB cable, an
error message may appear on your computer. If this happens, disconnect and then
reconnect the USB cable.
• A battery that has not been used for a long time, certain types of computers, and
connection conditions can cause charging to take more than approximately five
hours, which will trigger a timer that terminates charging automatically, even if the
battery is not fully charged. If this happens, disconnect and then reconnect the
USB cable to restart charging. To complete charging faster, use of the included
USB-AC adaptor is recommended.
• If the battery has not been used for a very long time, charging may terminate
automatically and the back lamp may start flashing red or go out after only about
60 minutes. In either case, use of the USB-AC adaptor that comes with the camera
is recommended.
• If you turn on the camera while charging over a USB connection to a computer is in
progress, the camera will establish a USB connection with the computer. Though
charging normally should continue at this time, certain types of computers or
connection environments may stop charging if supply power is low. This will be
indicated by the camera’s back lamp lighting green.
• Charging is not performed while the connected computer is in the hibernate mode.

Back Lamp Operation
• The information in parentheses in the above table shows the lamp status while the
camera is turned on during charging.
Other Charging Precautions
• With the two charging methods described above, you can charge the camera’s
battery (NP-160) without removing it from the camera. You also can charge the
battery using an optionally available charger unit (BC-110L). Never use any other
type of charger device. Attempting to use a different charger can result in
unexpected accident.
• This model can be charged only via from USB 2.0 specification USB port only.
• USB charging devices and power supply devices are subject to fixed standards.
Use of an inferior device or a device that is not up to standard can cause
malfunction and/or failure of your camera.
• Operation is not guaranteed in the case of a computer built or modified by you.
Even in the case of a commercially available computer, certain USB port
specifications may make it impossible to charge via the USB cable.
• A battery that is still warm immediately after normal use may not charge fully. Give
the battery time to cool before charging it.
• A battery discharges slightly even when it is not loaded in the camera. Because of
this, it is recommended that you charge the battery immediately before you need to
use it.
• Charging the camera’s battery may cause interference with TV and radio reception.
If this happens, plug the USB-AC adaptor into an outlet that is further away from
the TV or radio.
• Actual charging time depends on current battery capacity and charging conditions.
• Do not use the USB-AC adaptor with any other device.
• Never use the power cord with another device.
• Use only the USB-AC adaptor and USB cable specified in this manual for charging.
Use of any other type of devices may result in improper charging.

Checking Remaining Battery Power
As battery power is consumed, a battery indicator on the monitor screen indicates
remaining power as shown below.
indicates battery power is low. Charge the battery as soon as possible.
Recording is not possible when is indicated. Charge the battery immediately.
• The level shown by the battery indicator may change when you switch between the
REC mode and PLAY mode.
• Leaving the camera for about 20 days with no power supplied while the battery is
dead will cause its date and time settings to be cleared. A message telling you to
configure time and date settings will appear the next time you turn on the camera
after restoring power. When this happens, configure date and time settings (page
209).
• See page 246 for information about battery life and number of shots.
Battery Power Conservation Tips
• Entering the “ECO Mode” enables low-power operation (page 202).
• When you do not need to use the flash, select ? (Flash Off) for the flash setting
(page 50).
• Enable the Auto Power Off and the Sleep features to protect against wasting
battery power when you forget to turn off the camera (pages 206, 206).
• Select “Off” for “Continuous AF” (page 112).
The first time you load a battery into the camera, a screen appears for configuring the
display language, date, and time settings. Failure to set the date and time correctly
will cause the wrong date and time data to be recorded with images.
IMPORTANT!
• A screen for language selection will not appear in step 2 of the procedure below if
you purchased a camera intended for the Japanese market. To change the display
language from Japanese in this case, use the procedure under “Specifying the
Display Language (Language)” (page 210). Note that a version of this manual in
the language you select may not be included with a camera intended for the
Japanese market.
• Camera models sold in certain geographic areas may not support display language
selection.

[ON/OFF] (Power)27
Quick Start Basics
Though the camera has built-in memory that can be used to store images and
movies, you probably will want to purchase a commercially available memory card for
greater capacity. The camera does not come with a memory card. Images recorded
while a memory card is loaded are saved to the memory card. When no memory card
is loaded, images are saved to built-in memory.
• For information about memory card capacities, see page 241.
– SD Memory Card
– SDHC Memory Card
– SDXC Memory Card
Use one of the above types of memory card.
• The above are supported memory card types as of October 2014.
• This camera supports use of SD memory cards of the following types and
capacities: SD memory cards up to 2GB, SDHC memory cards from 2GB up to
32GB, SDXC memory cards from 32GB up to 2TB. Note that the ability to use any
particular card with this camera, even if it satisfies the above capacity and type
requirements, is not guaranteed.
. Memory Card Handling Precautions
Certain types of memory cards can slow down processing speeds, and even can
make it impossible to store High Quality movies correctly. Also, use of certain types of
memory cards slows down data transfer and increases the time it takes to record
movie data, which can result in breaks in the image and/or audio during playback. If
this happens, the Y indicator will turn yellow on the monitor screen. In order to avoid
problems such as these, use of an Ultra High Speed Type SD memory card is
recommended. Note, however that CASIO makes no guarantees about the operation
of any Ultra High Speed Type SD memory card used with this camera.
Preparing a Memory Card
Supported Memory Cards28
Quick Start Basics
1. Press [ON/OFF] (Power) to turn off
the camera and then open the
battery cover.
2. Load a memory card.
Positioning the memory card so its front
is facing upwards (towards the lens side
of the camera), slide it into the card slot
all the way in until you hear it click
securely into place.
3. Close the battery cover.
IMPORTANT!
• Never insert anything besides a supported memory card (page 27) into the memory
card slot.
• Should water or any foreign object ever get into the card slot, immediately turn off
the camera, remove the battery, and contact your retailer or nearest CASIO
authorized service center.
To load a memory card
Front Back
Front29
Quick Start Basics
To replace the memory card
Press the memory card and then release it.
This will cause it to pop out of the memory
card slot slightly. Pull the card out the rest
of the way and then insert another one.
• Never remove a card from the camera
while the back lamp is flashing green.
Doing so can cause the image save
operation to fail and even damage the
memory card.
Format a memory card on the camera before using it for the first time.
IMPORTANT!
• Formatting a memory card that already has snapshots or other files on it, will delete
its contents. Normally you do not need to format a memory card again. However, if
storing to a card has slowed down or if you notice any other abnormality, re-format
the card.
• Be sure to use the camera to format a memory card. Formatting a card on a
computer will result in a non-SD standard format, which can greatly slow down

Operation
• Never open the battery cover while the back lamp is flashing green. Doing so can
result in the image you just shot being saved incorrectly, damage to other images
stored in memory, malfunction of the camera, etc.
• If unwanted light is shining onto the lens, shade the lens with your hand when
shooting an image.
Monitor Screen when Shooting Snapshots
• Subject brightness conditions can cause monitor screen response to slow and can
cause digital noise in the monitor screen image.
• The image that appears on the monitor screen is for image composition. The actual
image will be recorded at the quality set for the image quality setting (page 105).
Shooting Indoors under Fluorescent Lighting
• Minute flickering of fluorescent lighting can affect the brightness or color of an
image.
Other Precautions
• The slower the shutter speed, the greater the possibility that noticeable noise will
be generated in an image. Because of this, the camera automatically performs a
noise reduction at slow shutter speeds. The noise reduction process causes it to
take longer to record images at lower shutter speeds. The shutter speeds for which
noise reduction is performed depend on the camera setup and shooting conditions.
• A noise reduction process is performed when ISO sensitivity is set to a high value.
This can cause the camera to take relatively longer to be ready to shoot again after
you press the shutter button. Do not perform any key operation while the image
recording operation is in progress.
• Due to the characteristics of the imaging element used by the camera, very fast
moving objects in an image may appear distorted.
Snapshot Shooting Precautions39
Quick Start Basics
. Auto Focus Restrictions
• Any of the following can make proper focus impossible.
– Solid color wall or other very low contrast subject
– Strongly back lit subject
– Very shiny subject
– Blinds or other subject with a repeating horizontal pattern
– Multiple subjects at varying distances from the camera
– Subject in a dark location
– Subject that is too far away for light from the AF assist light to reach
– Camera movement while shooting
– Fast-moving subject
– Subjects outside the focus range of the camera
• If you cannot focus properly, try using focus lock (page 46) or Manual Focus (page
45).40
