Getting started G Preparing batteries

Use the following batteries in this camera. Notes on alkaline batteries etting started Acceptable batteries HR 15/51:HR6 (size AA) Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries (2) – NH-AA-DA (2) (supplied) – NH-AA-2DA twin-pack, etc. (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. • Alkaline batteries have a shorter life compared to the supplied Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries. The power may shut off even if the battery remaining indicator shows sufficient battery life remaining. • 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. You may not be able to shoot in temperatures below 5°C (41°F). • Do not mix new and old batteries. • The battery remaining indicator does not display the correct information. • There is a big difference between available shooting time and available playback time. Due to the characteristics of alkaline batteries, the camera may shut off with the lens portion extended if you change the position of the mode dial. In this case, replace the batteries with new ones or fully charged Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries. It is recommend that you use the supplied Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries.

Charging the

batteries , Insert Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries into the battery charger (supplied) with the correct polarity +/–. • You cannot charge alkaline batteries using the battery charger. • Be sure to charge the Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries supplied with your camera before using them. • Connect the battery charger to an easily accessible wall outlet (wall socket) close by. • Even if the CHARGE lamp is not lit, the set is not disconnected from the AC power source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall outlet (wall socket). If some trouble occurs while using the battery charger, immediately shut off the power by disconnecting the plug from the wall outlet (wall socket).,

Image size and quality

You can choose image size (number of Short description of the image size Shooting still images pixels) and image quality (compression ratio) based on the kind of images you want to shoot. The image size is shown by the number of pixels (dots) (horizontal × vertical), which compose an image. For example, a 5M (2592×1944) size image indicates that there are 2592 pixels horizontally 1944 vertically. The larger the number of pixels, the larger the image size. You can select an image quality level from Fine (high quality) or Standard. Each has a different compression ratio. When you select Fine and make the image size larger, you get better quality. However, the amount of data needed to preserve your image is larger and the number of images recordable in the “Memory Stick” is fewer. Choose an image size and quality level appropriate to the kind of images you want to shoot by checking the table below. 1) The default setting is [5M] (DSC-P93) or [4M] (DSC-P73). This size can give the highest image quality using each camera. 2) This option records images in a horizontal to vertical proportion of 3:2 to match the size of the print paper used. The following illustration shows a brief image using the maximum image size and the minimum one. [a]:Display size: 5M 2592 [a] Image size: 5M 2304 2592 pixels × 1944 pixels = 5038848 pixels [b] [b]:Display size: 4M 640 Image size: 4M 2304 pixels × 1728 pixels = 3981312 pixels [c]:Display size: VGA (E-Mail) [c] Image size: VGA 640 pixels × 480 pixels = 307200 pixels
