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.

Quick Start Basics
What is a digital camera?
Delete
A digital camera stores images on a memory card, so you can record and
delete images a countless number of times.
Play
Record
You can use the images you record in a variety of different ways.
Store images on your
computer.
Print images. Attach images to e-mail.14
Quick Start Basics
Your CASIO camera is packed with a powerful selection of features and functions to
make recording of digital images easier, including the following main functions.
What you can do with your CASIO camera
Tough, Shock resistant construction
Applying the same technology developed for the G-SHOCK wristwatch, this
camera has passed drop testing from a height of 2.13 meters/7 feet* for a level
of shock resistance that dramatically outperforms previous models.
* Based on CASIO test equivalent to MIL-Standard 810F Method 516.5-Shock
(page 31).
Waterproof, Dustproof, Freezeproof
In addition to IEC/JIS Protection Class 8 (IPX8)* and
Protection Class 6 (IPX6) equivalent waterproofing that
allows immersion up to 3.0 meters, this camera also
conforms to IEC/JIS Protection Class 6 (IP6X)
dustproofing, which effectively shuts out sand, dirt, and
dust. Freezeproofing up to –10°C means it can be used while skiing and in
other cold temperature environments.
* Based on CASIO test.
See page 31 for more information.15
Quick Start Basics
Dynamic Photo
Extract a moving subject out of a series of Continuous Shutter images you have
shot and insert them into another image to create a Dynamic Photo image that
features the moving subject.
Interval
Recording
This feature automatically records images at fixed intervals. You can fix the
camera to a bicycle or automobile and have it shoot at regular intervals as you
travel. This feature is also ideal to shoot changes in clouds, flowers, and
crowds.
See page 109 for more information.
See page 63 for more information.16
Quick Start Basics
Note that the battery of a newly purchased camera is not charged. Perform the steps
under “To charge the battery” to bring the battery to a full charge.

. Using Quick Shutter
Fully pressing the shutting button without waiting for Auto Focus to operate will record
using Quick Shutter (page 79).
• With Quick Shutter, the camera focuses faster than normal Auto Focus, which
means you can capture quick moving action more easily. Note, however, that some
images may be out of focus when Quick Shutter is used.
• Whenever possible, take a little extra time to half-press the shutter button in order
to ensure proper focus.
. If the image does not focus…
If the focus frame stays red and the back lamp is flashing green, it means that the
image is not in focus (because the subject is too close, etc.). Re-point the camera at
the subject and try to focus again.
. If the subject is not in the center of the frame…
“Focus lock” (page 69) is the name of a technique you can use when you want to
shoot an image in which the subject to be focused on is not within the focus frame in
the center of the screen.
. To track the movement of a moving subject
Half-press the shutter button to follow and focus automatically on a moving subject.

. Pixels
A digital camera image is a collection of small
dots called “pixels”. The more pixels there are
in an image, the more detail there will be.
However, you generally can do with fewer
pixels when printing an image (L size) through
a print service, attaching an image to e-mail,
when viewing the image on a computer, etc.

. About image sizes
The size of an image indicates how many pixels it contains, and is expressed as
horizontal pixelsxvertical pixels.
Image Size Selection Tips
Note that larger images have more pixels, so they take up more memory space.
• For information about image size, image quality, and number of images that can be
stored, see page 173.
• For information about movie image size, see page 39.
• For information about resizing existing snapshots, see page 106.

. Specifying Movie Image Quality
Movie image quality is a standard that determines the detail, smoothness, and clarity
of a movie during playback. Shooting with the high-quality (WIDE) setting will result in
better image quality, but it also shortens the amount of time you can shoot.
1. In the REC mode, press [SET].
2. Use [8] and [2] to select the second Control Panel option from the top
(Movie Image Quality).
3. Use [4] and [6] to select the setting you want and then press [SET].
• The 16:9 aspect ratio is available only when “WIDE” is selected as the image
quality.
• Memory capacity (Movie recording time you can shoot) will be affected by the
quality settings you configure (page 174).

• For information about Flash Range, see page 176.
Using Flash (Flash)
Auto Flash
Flash fires automatically in accordance with exposure
(amount of light and brightness) conditions.
Flash Off Flash does not fire.
Flash On
Flash always fires. This setting can be used to brighten a
subject that normally comes out dark due to daylight or
backlight (daylight synchro flash).
Soft Flash Soft flash always fires, regardless of exposure conditions
Red Eye
Reduction
Flash fires automatically. This type of flash can be used to
reduce the chance of redness in the subject’s eyes.
Back lamp
Flashes orange while the flash is charging to indicate
that image recording is disabled.
• You will not be able to take another flash snapshot

?
< _ ¥41 Snapshot Tutorial NOTE • Take care so your fingers and the strap do not block the flash. • The desired effect may not be obtained when the subject is too far away or too close. • Flash charging time (page 176) depends on operating conditions (battery condition, ambient temperature, etc.). • Shooting with flash turned off when lighting is dim results in a slow shutter speed, which can cause image blur due to camera movement. Under such conditions, secure the camera with a tripod, etc. • With red eye reduction, the flash is fired automatically in accordance with exposure. It does not fire in areas where lighting is bright. • The presence of outdoor sunlight, fluorescent lighting, or some other light source can cause abnormal image colors. • Select ? (Flash Off) for the flash setting when shooting in areas where flash photograph is prohibited. Red-eye Reduction Using the flash to shoot at night or in a dimly lit room can cause red spots inside the eyes of people who are in the image. This is caused when the light from the flash reflects off of the retina of the eye. When red-eye reduction is selected as the flash mode, the camera fires a pre-flash to cause the irises in the eyes of any people in the image to close, which reduces the chance of red eye. The camera also has an auto red-eye correction feature that corrects for red-eye in recorded images. Note the following important points when using red-eye reduction. • Red-eye reduction does not work unless the people in the image are looking directly at the camera (flash). • Red-eye reduction may not work very well if the subjects are located far away from the camera.
