2 Tips before you start taking pictures
Tips before you start
taking pictures
Your pictures are almost guaranteed to
come out well just by setting the mode dial
to h or P and pressing the shutter
button. But occasionally, you can’t focus on
your subject or the picture doesn’t come out
the way you want…
Just knowing which button to press or which
setting to change can help you solve these
problems.
And did you know that by selecting an
image size according to how you plan to use
the pictures afterwards, you can store more
pictures? These are just some of the hints
provided in this chapter.

Holding the camera
Sometimes when you look at a picture you have taken, the contours of the
subject are blurred. This is often caused by movement of the camera at the
precise moment that the shutter button is pressed.
Picture where subject is not clearly defined
To prevent the camera from moving, hold the camera firmly with both
hands while keeping your elbows at your sides. When taking pictures
with the camera in the vertical position, hold the camera so that the flash
is positioned higher than the lens. Keep your fingers and the strap away
from the lens and flash.
Horizontal grip Vertical grip2

If correct focus cannot be obtained
The camera automatically detects the focus target in the frame. The level
of contrast is one of the criteria it uses to detect the subject. The camera
may fail to determine subjects with lower contrast than the surroundings or
with an area of extremely strong contrast in the frame. If this happens, the
simplest solution is to use the focus lock.
1 Position the AF target mark on
the subject you want to focus on.
• When shooting a hard-to-focus or fast-
moving subject, focus the camera on an
object about the same distance away as
the subject.
2 Press the shutter button halfway
until the green lamp lights.
• When the focus and exposure are
locked, the green lamp lights.
• When the green lamp blinks, the focus
and exposure are not locked. Release
your finger from the shutter button,
re-position the AF target mark on the subject and press the shutter button
halfway again.
3 Keeping the shutter button
pressed halfway, recompose
your shot.

4 Press the shutter button fully.
Under certain types of conditions, the auto focus may not work properly.
In these cases, focus (focus lock) on an object with high contrast at the same
distance as the intended subject, recompose your shot and then take the picture. If
the subject has no vertical lines, hold the camera vertically and focus the camera
using the focus lock function by pressing the shutter button halfway, then return the
camera to the horizontal position while keeping the button pressed halfway and take
the picture.

Record pictures
You can select a record mode in which to take pictures or shoot movies.
Select the best record mode for your purpose (printing, editing on a
computer, website editing, etc.). For information on the image sizes for
each record mode and memory capacity, see the table on P. 23.
Record mode depicts the image size and compression rate of pictures you wish to
record.
Pictures are made from thousands of dots (pixels). If a picture with relatively few
pixels is enlarged, it looks like a mosaic. A picture with many pixels is denser and
clearer, but requires a larger file size (data size), decreasing the number of pictures
that can be saved. Increasing the compression rate reduces the file size, but makes
the pictures appear grainy.
Image size
The number of pixels (horizontal × vertical) used when saving an image. Save your
pictures in a large image size to get clearer prints.
Compression
Image data is compressed and recorded. The higher the compression, the less clear
the image will be.

TIPS
• When a picture is transferred to a computer, the size of the picture on the
computer screen varies depending on the computer’s monitor setting. For
instance, a picture taken with an image size of 1,024 × 768 fills the screen if
you set the picture to 1× when the monitor setting is 1,024 × 768. However, if
the monitor setting is over 1,024 × 768 (such as 1,280 × 1,024), the picture only
takes up part of the screen.

Recording pictures
Pictures taken are stored in the internal memory.
You can also use an optional xD-Picture Card (referred to as “card” in this
manual) to store pictures. The card has greater capacity than the internal
memory, and so, is able to store more pictures. The card is convenient, for
example, when you are traveling and you want to take a lot of pictures.
(Internal memory basics
The internal memory corresponds to the film of a normal camera for recording
pictures you have taken.
Pictures recorded and stored in the internal memory can easily be erased,
overwritten, and/or edited on a computer. The internal memory cannot be replaced
or removed from the camera.
The monitor displays which memory (internal or card) is being used for shooting and
displaying images.
• The internal memory and the card cannot be used at the same time.
• When the card is inserted, the internal memory is disabled. To use the internal
memory, remove the card.
• You can copy all the image data stored in the internal memory to a card.

3 Shooting
A professional photographer adjusts the
exposure to the optimal setting, chooses the
best focusing method and even selects the
type of film according to the subject.
With a digital camera, you don’t need to
learn how to make difficult settings. Your
camera will adjust the settings for you! All
you have to do is choose a scene mode
according to whether you are taking a
landscape, a night scene, a portrait-style
image or whatever, and the camera will set
the best exposure and coloration.
There’s nothing to it – just press the shutter
button!

(Shooting mode
P Program Auto/h Auto
Suitable for general situations. The camera automatically uses settings that captures
the scene in its natural colors. You can set other functions such as flash as desired.
•In P mode, the brightness (exposure compensation) can be adjusted.
•In h mode, you cannot use exposure compensation or panorama.
i Portrait
Suitable for taking a portrait-style shot of a person. This mode is optimum for
reproducing silky skin tones.
k Landscape+Portrait
Suitable for taking pictures of both your subject and the landscape. The picture is
taken with the background as well as the subject in the foreground in focus. You can
take pictures of your subject against a beautiful sky or landscape.
l Landscape
Suitable for taking pictures of landscapes and other outdoor scenes. Both the
foreground and the background are in focus. Since blues and greens are vividly
reproduced in this mode, it is excellent for shooting natural scenery.
z Night Scene
Suitable for shooting pictures in the evening or at night. The camera sets a slower
shutter speed than is used in normal shooting. For example, if you take a picture of
a street at night in P mode, the lack of light will result in a dark picture with only dots
of light. In the Night Scene shooting mode, the true appearance of the street is
captured. Since the shutter speed is slow, make sure that you stabilize the camera
by using a tripod.
j Sports
Suitable for capturing fast-moving action (such as sports) without blurring. Even fast-
moving subjects appear to be stationary.Selecting a shooting mode according to the situation

Flash shooting
Select the flash mode best suited to the light conditions and the effect you
want to achieve.
Flash working range: 3.0 m (9.8 ft.)
Auto-flash (No indication)
The flash fires automatically in low light or backlight conditions.
Red-eye reduction flash (!)
The light from the flash may make the
subject’s eyes appear red in the picture.
The red-eye reduction flash mode
reduces this phenomenon by emitting
pre-flashes before firing the regular flash.
Fill-in flash (#)
The flash fires regardless of the available
light. This mode is useful for eliminating
shadows on the subject’s face (such as
shadows from tree leaves), in a backlight
situation, or for correcting the color shift
produced by artificial lighting (especially
fluorescent light).
Flash off ($)
The flash does not fire even in low light conditions. Use this mode in situations where
flash photography is not desired or is prohibited. You can also use this mode when
shooting landscapes, sunsets, and other subjects outside the range of the flash.
Note
• After the pre-flashes, it takes about 1 second before the shutter is released.
Hold the camera firmly, and prevent it from moving.
• Effectiveness may be limited if the subject is not looking directly at the pre-
flashes, or if the shooting range is too far. Individual physical characteristics
may also limit effectiveness.
Note
• The fill-in flash may not have the desired effect under excessively bright light.
Note
• Since a slow shutter speed is automatically selected in low light situations when
in the flash off mode, the use of a tripod is recommended to prevent your
pictures from being blurred by camera movement.

With film-type cameras, you cannot see the

been developed. And aren’t you sometimes
disappointed with the results when you do
eventually see them? Pictures of blurred
scenery or someone with their eyes shut.
Or maybe you took several pictures of the

whether they would come out or not. That’s
no way to record important memories!
With a digital camera, you can review your
