PREPARATION OF BATTERIES

Use the supplied (or sold separately) AA nickel metal hydride batteries to power the digital camera. You can also use AA Ni-Cd batteries, but they will not last as long as the AA nickel metal hydride rechargeable batteries. However, if you do not have access to these batteries, you may use alkaline batteries and capture images using the viewfinder (see page 56). Also note that the duration of operation provided by the alkaline batteries will be very short.

CAUTION

œManganese batteries cannot be used, as they have an extremely short battery life and may overheat and damage the digital camera.

œFor your safety, read “Concerning the Batteries” on page 5 and “Concerning the Supplied Battery Charger” on page 7 before handling the batteries.

Recharging Nickel Metal Hydride Batteries

Make sure to completely recharge the supplied nickel metal hydride batteries before use. Use only the supplied battery charger to recharge the batteries. This battery charger can be used for both the nickel metal hydride batteries (HR-3US or HR-3U, supplied with the digital camera or sold separately) and the Ni-Cd batteries (N-3US or N-3U, sold separately). Before using the batteries for the first time or when the batteries remaining charge is low (see “REMAINING BATTERY CHARGE INDICATION” on page 44), follow the steps below to recharge them.

1 Insert the batteries into the battery charger.

œ Make sure the polarity ((+), (–)) of the batteries is as indicated on the charger.

œ Make sure that the batteries are properly inserted all the way into the battery charger and not sticking up.

œ You can charge from one to four batteries at the same time.

2 Insert the power cord into the socket on the battery charger.

3 Plug the power cord into a power outlet (AC 100 to 240 V).

œRecharge will start automatically.

œDuring recharge, the recharge indicator on the battery charger will light.

Recharge time of the supplied nickel metal hydride batteries: Model NC-LC03WSA: approx. 110 minutes for one or two batteries, and approx. 210 minutes for three or four batteries. Model VAR-NC1: approx. 120 minutes for one or two batteries, and approx. 240 minutes for three or four batteries.

NOTE

œThe recommended ambient temperature when recharging is between 10°C and 35°C. If the temperature is less than 10°C, the batteries may be unable to be fully recharged.

4 When finished (the recharge indicator turns off), unplug the power cord from the power outlet.

5 Remove the batteries from the battery charger.

PREPARATION OF BATTERIES

Using the Nickel Metal Hydride Batteries

Properly

œPeriodically clean with a dry cloth the terminals of the nickel metal hydride batteries ((+) and (–)) and the terminals located in the battery compartment of the digital camera.

Do not touch the battery terminals or the terminals in the battery compartment of the digital camera with your bare hands. Doing so will allow contaminants from your hands to adhere to the terminals and oxidize and increase the contact resistance. If the contact resistance increases, the usable life of the batteries will diminish.

œIf you repeatedly remove the nickel metal hydride batteries before they run out and recharge them, or place them into the digital camera before they are fully recharged, then a “memory effect”* may occur.

œYour digital camera is designed to handle the effects from voltage fluctuations caused by the

“memory effect” of nickel metal hydride batteries. Nevertheless, there are times when the remaining charge indicator may show èçor êçearlier than usual.

œIf any symptoms such as these occur, first discharge the batteries completely (see page 124) and then recharge them until they are fully charged again.

* Memory effect

Memory effect is a phenomenon where the battery performance temporarily lowers. In general, the battery voltage during use drops below its normal voltage until it is fully discharged and recharged again.

NOTE

œNew batteries must be recharged before they are first used.

œEven if recharged batteries are stored and not used, they will slowly loose their charge. They must be recharged before they are used again.

œIf the batteries are used for the first time or if they have not been used for a long time, they may not be recharged completely even when the recharge indicator goes off. The batteries will return to normal after they have been used and recharged two or three times.

œThe batteries may have reached the end of their service life if the recharge indicator keeps on flashing even if the batteries have been inserted correctly, or if they overheat while being recharged. However, if the same conditions appear with new batteries, or if the recharge indicator does not go off after the normal time required, it may indicate a problem of the battery charger. In such a case, stop using it immediately and take it to the dealer for service.

œDuring recharging, the battery charger and batteries will be warm. This is normal and does not indicate a malfunction.

œDuring recharging, the battery charger may create interference with a radio or TV. In such a case, make sure to plug the battery charger into a power outlet on a circuit different from the one of the radio or TV.

REMAINING BATTERY CHARGE INDICATION

NOTE

œThe remaining battery charge indicator will give an accurate indication of the remaining charge only when the supplied nickel metal hydride batteries are used. The indication will not be accurate if you are using Ni-Cd batteries.

œFor optimum performance, only use Sanyo nickel metal hydride batteries. If you are using Ni-Cd batteries, the possible operation time will be much shorter.

œDepending on the usage of the digital camera (such as the number of times the flash is used, the use of the LCD monitor, etc.) or the environmental conditions (temperature, etc.) the number of images that can be saved on a set of fully charged batteries will vary greatly.

HELP

If the LCD monitor goes off suddenly

œWhen capturing images using the LCD monitor and the battery charge is about half full, the LCD monitor may turn off momentarily. This is to allow a quick recharge of the flash. When the flash has been recharged, the LCD monitor will come back on automatically.

CHECKINGTHEREMAININGNUMBEROFIMAGES, VIDEORECORDINGTIME,ANDAUDIORECORDINGTIME

The images, video clips, and audio recordings you take are stored on the card installed in the digital camera. If a card is not loaded into the digital camera or if the card is full, capturing or playing back images will not be possible. Make sure to check the status of the card in the digital camera before capturing images. For an indication of how many images can be captured and how much recording time is available for your card, see “Possible No. of Images/Possible Shooting Time/Possible Recording Time” on page 133.

Checking the Remaining Number of Images

and Video Recording Time

1 Set the main switch to “CAMERA.”

2 Open the lens cover.

œSet the selector dial to anything other than P.

œThe remaining number of images appears in the upper right of the LCD monitor (for the still image and sequential shot shooting modes).

œThe remaining video recording time appears in the top of the LCD monitor and the remaining number of video clips appears in the upper right of the LCD monitor (for the video clip shooting mode).

œThe remaining number of images and video recording time will differ depending on the resolution and compression settings.

œWhen the remaining number of images or video clips that can be taken is “0,” you cannot capture any more images. To capture more images, either install a new card, or save the current images (see page 48) and then erase them (see page 110) from the card.

œWhen the remaining number of images or video clips that can be taken is “0,” it may be possible to capture a few more images by changing the shooting mode, setting a lower resolution setting (see page 51), or selecting a different compression setting (see page 53).

CONCERNING IMAGE AND AUDIO DATA STORAGE

Saving the Images Captured with Your Digital Camera

œ Saving the images to a computer

Requires:

Computer connecting cable (supplied), commercially available personal

 

computer.

Advantages: The images are saved as data on the computer hard disk. They can then be processed or edited, sent over a network or the Internet, etc.

œ Print out in high quality with a digital print service

For high-quality print outs of your captured images, you can take your image data to digital print service centers for digital cameras (see page 113). Network print services are also available for access if necessary.

Advantages: You can receive high-quality printouts of the images you capture.

Caution:

To print out a single shot from a sequential shot or a single scene from a video

 

clip, you must first copy the data as a still image (see page 112).

 

If the image resolution is low, depending on the print size, the output image may

 

not be high quality.
