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.

. Camera-Controller Wireless Connection (Bluetooth)
The camera and controller communicate over a
Bluetooth wireless technology connection. Once
you perform the “pairing” operation required for
Bluetooth wireless technology connection, the
camera and controller will automatically connect to each other whenever you turn
them on. Note that the connection will be lost when the distance between the camera
and controller becomes too great. The controller will turn off after a preset amount of
time after the Bluetooth wireless technology connection is lost. The camera will
remain on, so you can shoot images by pressing its shutter button.
IMPORTANT!
• Your camera has Bluetooth wireless technology communication functionality built
in. Avoid operating the camera (including camera standalone operations) inside of
aircraft or anywhere else where wireless data communication is restricted.
. To turn on power
Both the camera and controller need to be turned on in order to use them.
• Turning on the camera causes the camera and controller operation lamps to light
green, and automatically starts an operation to establish a Bluetooth wireless
technology connection between the camera and controller. An image appears on
the controller and shooting is enabled.
• The connection between the camera and controller is affected by their orientation
and by the distance between them.
• The maximum range for shooting with the controller’s shutter button is around
10 meters (32.8`). The maximum range for viewing the image on the controller’s
monitor screen is around five meters (16.4`).
• If the connection is poor, the controller operation lamp will flash green and
“ ” (Communication status between camera and controller) will appear on the
monitor screen. Camera response may be slow if you perform an operation on the
controller while communication conditions are bad. If this happens, try adjusting the
orientation and the distance between the camera and controller.

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.
• Snapshots and movies stored in built-in memory cannot be copied to a memory
card.
• For information about memory capacities, see page 137.
– microSD Memory Card
– microSDHC Memory Card
– microSDXC Memory Card
• The above are supported memory card types as of September
2015.
• This camera supports use of microSD memory cards of the following types and
capacities: microSD memory cards up to 2GB; microSDHC memory cards greater
than 2GB, up to 32GB; microSDXC memory cards greater than 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. In particular, high-
quality movies may not be able to be stored correctly. A slow memory card can take
too much time to record data and result in breaks in the image and/or audio during
playback.
Preparing a Memory Card
