Before using your camera

Trial recording Do not shake or strike the camera Before you record one-time events, you may want to make a trial recording to make sure that the camera is working correctly. No compensation for contents of the recording Contents of the recording cannot be compensated for if recording or playback is not possible due to a malfunction of your camera or recording medium, etc. Back up recommendation To avoid the potential risk of data loss, always copy (back up) data to a disk. Notes on image data compatibility • This camera conforms with the Design rule for Camera File system universal standard established by the JEITA (Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association). • Playback of images recorded with your camera on other equipment and playback of images recorded or edited with other equipment on your camera are not guaranteed. Precaution on copyright Television programs, films, video tapes, and other materials may be copyrighted. Unauthorized recording of such materials may be contrary to the provision of the copyright laws. In addition to malfunctions and inability to record images, this may render the “Memory Stick” unusable or image data breakdown, damage or loss may occur. LCD screen, LCD finder (only models with a LCD finder) and lens • The LCD screen and the LCD finder are manufactured using extremely high- precision technology so over 99.99% of the pixels are operational for effective use. However, there may be some tiny black points and/or bright points (white, red, blue or green in color) that constantly appear on the LCD screen and the LCD finder. These points are normal in the manufacturing process and do not affect the recording in any way. • Be careful when placing the camera near a window or outdoors. Exposing the LCD screen, the finder or the lens to direct sunlight for long periods may cause malfunctions. • Do not press the LCD screen hardly. The screen may be uneven and that may cause a malfunction. • Images may be trailed on the LCD screen in a cold location. This is not a malfunction.

Acceptable batteries HR 15/51:HR6 (size AA) Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries (2) – NH-AA-DA (2) (supplied) – NH-AA-2DA twin-pack (not supplied) R6 (size AA) alkaline batteries (2) Batteries that cannot be used Manganese batteries, lithium batteries, ni- cad batteries If you use the batteries described above, we cannot guarantee full performance of the camera by property of the batteries, such as brownout of the batteries. The battery remaining indicator does not display the correct information. • When alkaline batteries are used, take note of the following information. – There is a big difference in the performance of batteries of different types and of batteries made by different manufacturers. This is especially true in low temperatures, where some batteries are noticeably weaker.
