If you are using the camera for the first time, read this section.
Getting Ready
Turn the power on and get ready to shoot.
Note ————————————————————————————-
• Be sure the camera is off before removing the battery.
• For information on how to turn the camera off, see P .30.
About the Battery
The camera can be used with the following batteries:
• DB-65 rechargeable Li-ion batteries (supplied)
• AAA Alkaline Batteries (available in stores)
• AAA Nickel-Hydrogen Batteries (available in stores)
Number of shots you can take —————————————————-
• Approximate number of shots you can take on a single charge
Battery Type Number of Shots (Normal Mode)
Rechargeable Battery (DB-65) Approx. 400
AAA Alkaline Batteries (available in stores) Approx. 35
* When [LCD Auto Dim] (GP .98) is set to [On].
• Based on CIPA standard (Temperature: 23 degrees Celsius, picture display on, 30
seconds between shots, changing the zoom setting from telephoto to wide-
angle or wide-angle to telephoto for each shot, 50% flash usage, turning the
power off after each 10 shots).
• The figure for the number of shots that can be taken with AAA alkaline batteries
is based on measurements made with batteries manufactured by Panasonic.
• Set the camera to synchro-monitor mode to increase the number of shots you
can take (GP .46).
• The number of shots is for reference only. If the camera is used for long periods
of time for setting and playback, the shooting time (the number of shots)
will decrease. If you intend to use the camera for a long period of time, we
recommend carrying a spare battery.25
If you are using the camera for the first time, read this section.
Caution ———————————————————————————
• The battery may become very hot immediately after operation. Turn the camera
off and leave it to cool down sufficiently before removing the battery.
• Please remove the battery if you are not going to use the camera for a long
period of time.
• When using a lithium-ion battery, use only the specified rechargeable lithium-
ion battery (DB-65). Do not use any other battery.
• DB-60 Li-ion batteries can not be used.
• NiMH batteries are not charged at purchase; charge before use.
• NiMH batteries may suffer a drop in performance immediately after purchase
or following a month or more of disuse and may need to be recharged two or
three times before they will hold a charge.
• The battery life of alkaline batteries varies with make and the time elapsed since
the date of manufacture. Capacity drops at low temperatures.
• Manganese and Ni-Cd batteries can not be used.
• The drain on the battery increases when a GPS unit or barcode reader is
connected or pictures are uploaded via Bluetooth® or over a wireless LAN. Use a
DB-65 or ready spare AAA batteries.
SD Memory Cards (Available in Stores)
Pictures can be stored in the camera’s 6.5 GB internal memory or on
optional Eye-Fi cards or SD, SDHC, and SDXC memory cards (hereafter
referred to as “memory cards”).

SD WORM and Write Once cards ————————————————–
The G800SE supports SanDisk® SD™ WORM (Write Once Read Many) and Toshiba
Write Once cards. Data stored on these cards can not be deleted or modified. The
following are not available with SD WORM or Write Once cards:
Deleting files P .43 Recover File P .86
Skew Correction P .57, 90 Trim P .87
Continuous Mode P .78 Contrast Correction P .89
Resize P .85 Protect P .91
Copy to Card from Internal
Memory
P .85 DPOF P .92
Format [Card] P .96
• SD WORM and Write Once cards can contain up to 510 folders, each holding a
maximum of 510 photographs.
• Files can not be copied from a computer to an SD WORM or Write Once card
when the camera is connected via USB.26
If you are using the camera for the first time, read this section.
Formatting —————————————————————————-
Before using a memory card for the first time or after using a memory card in
other devices, be sure to format it with this camera (note that formatting Eye-Fi
cards deletes the software on the card). Memory cards can be formatted using
the [Format [Card]] item (GP .96) in the setup menu (GP .95).

Where images are recorded ——————————————————-
When no SD memory card is loaded, the camera records images to the internal
memory (t); when an SD memory card is loaded, it records images to the SD
memory card (u).

Where images are played back from ——————————————–
When no SD memory card is loaded, the camera plays back from the internal
memory (t). When an SD memory card is loaded, it plays back from the SD
memory card (u).

Eye-Fi cards —————————————————————————-
Operation has been confirmed with X2-series Eye-Fi cards, a type of SD memory
card with built-in wireless LAN. Visit the Eye-Fi website (http://www.eyefi.com) for
more information. Note the following:
• If you experience difficulty uploading selected images, make sure that the card
does not contain an “EYERICOH” folder. This folder is deleted automatically when
the camera is turned on with the card in place.
• Operation is not guaranteed with cards by other manufacturers offering similar
functions. Eye-Fi-related menu options and upload icons are displayed only
with Eye-Fi cards.
• Functionality (including wireless LAN support) is not guaranteed when Eye-Fi
cards are with this product. Eye-Fi cards are authorized for use only in the
country of purchase. All inquiries concerning Eye-Fi cards and their use should
be directed to their manufacturer.
Caution ———————————————————————————
• If an SD memory card is loaded, the camera does not record to the internal
memory, even if the card is full.
• Take care not to get the contacts of the card dirty.27
If you are using the camera for the first time, read this section.

Write-protecting your images —————————————————-
Move the write-protection switch on the SD memory card
to LOCK to prevent your still images from being accidentally
erased or the card from being formatted.
Note that you cannot shoot images on a locked card because
no data can be recorded to the card. Unlock the card before
shooting. Although SD WORM cards do not have a write-
protection switch, they can not be formatted, and data can not be deleted.
Note ————————————————————————————-
• The [Copy to Card from Internal Memory] item (GP .85) in the playback menu
(GP .84) can be used to copy the pictures in internal memory to a memory card.
• An SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card with a Speed Class of 6 or better is
recommended when recording movies with [m 1920 (30 fps)] or [x 1280
(60 fps)] selected for [Movie Size] (GP .73).28
If you are using the camera for the first time, read this section.
