Slide the Power switch to turn the camera on and off. When you switch the camera on, the viewfinder lamp lights (green).

In “q” mode, the lens extends and the lens cover opens. Because these actions involve precision mechanisms, you should take care not to obstruct the lens with your hand or fingers.

Obstructing the lens will cause a malfunction or fault and the “ß” or “∂” message will appear. Take care also not to get fingerprints on the camera lens as this will result in impaired image quality in your shots.

Click

Move the camera slightly so that one of the subjects is in the AF frame.

When you press the Shutter button down halfway, the camera emits a short double-beepand focuses on your subject. At this point, the AF frame on the LCD monitor shrinks and the shutter speed/ aperture setting appears on the display panel (The viewfinder lamp (green) changes from blinking to lit).

Continue to hold the Shutter button down halfway (AF/AE lock). Move the camera back to the original image and then fully press down on the Shutter button.

! You can reapply the AF/AE lock as many times as you like before releasing the shutter.

! The AF/AE lock operates in all photography modes and can be used to ensure excellent results.

AF/AE Lock

On the FinePix F610, when you press the Shutter button down half way, the focus and exposure settings are fixed (AF/AE lock). If you want to focus on a subject that is off to one side of the image or if you want to set the exposure before you compose the final shot, lock the AF and AE settings and then compose and shoot your picture to get the best results.

The setting changes each time you press the “W” button and the last flash setting displayed is selected.

! If you use the flash in very dusty conditions or when it is snowing, white dots may appear in the image due to the flash reflecting off the dust particles or snowflakes. Try taking the shot using Suppressed Flash mode.

The available flash modes are limited depending on the photography mode selected ( P.37).

Suppressed Flash

Pressing the flash down switches the camera to Suppressed Flash mode.

Use this mode for photography using indoor lighting, for shots taken through glass, and for photography in venues such as theaters or at indoor sporting events

where the distance is too great for the flash to be effective. In this situation, the white balance function ( P.102) operates automatically, allowing you to take photos with natural colors that accurately capture the effects of the ambient light.

! If you are shooting in Suppressed Flash mode in dark conditions, use a tripod to prevent camera shake.! See P.24, 96 for information on the camera shake warning.

hMULTI

In this mode, the camera uses automatic scene recognition to analyze the subject and provide optimum exposure in a wide range of shooting conditions. This mode should be used for everyday

photography.

hSPOT

This mode is useful for subjects with strongly contrasting light and dark areas where you want to achieve the correct exposure for a particular feature.

Notes on Using Your Camera Correctly

e Be sure to read this information in conjunction with “Safety Notes” ( P.103), to ensure that you use your camera correctly.

Places to Avoid

Do not store or use the camera in the following types of locations:

h In the rain or in very humid, dirty or dusty places.

h In direct sunlight or in places subject to extreme temperature rises, such as in a closed car in summer.

h Extremely cold places.

h Places subject to strong vibration. h Places affected by smoke or steam.

h Places subject to strong magnetic fields (such as near motors, transformers or magnets).

h In contact with chemicals such as pesticides or next to rubber or vinyl products for long periods of time.

Notes on Immersion in Water or Sand

The FinePix F610 is particularly adversely affected by water and sand. When you are at the beach or close to water, ensure that the camera is not exposed to water or sand. Take care also not to place the camera on a wet surface. Water or sand inside the camera can cause faults that may be irreparable.

Notes on Condensation

If the camera is carried suddenly from a cold location into a warm place, water droplets (condensation) may form on the inside of the camera or on the lens. When this occurs, switch the camera off and wait an hour before using the camera. Condensation may also form on the xD-Picture

card. In this event, remove thexD-Picture card and wait a short time before using it again.

When the Camera is Unused for Long Periods

If you do not intend to use the camera for a long period of time, remove the battery and the xD-Picture card before storing the camera.

Cleaning Your Camera

h Use a blower brush to brush away any dust on the lens, LCD monitor surface or viewfinder and then gently wipe the camera with a soft, dry cloth. If any soil remains, apply a small amount of lens cleaning liquid to a piece of FUJIFILM lens cleaning paper and wipe gently.

h Do not scratch hard objects against the lens and LCD monitor screen as these surfaces are easily damaged.

h Clean the body of the camera with a soft, dry cloth. Do not use volatile substances such as thinners, benzine or insecticide, as these may react with camera body and cause deformation or remove the coating.

Using the Camera Overseas

When travelling overseas, do not place your camera in the check-inbaggage. Baggage handling at airports may subject baggage to violent shocks, and the camera may be damaged internally even when no external damage is visible.

Notes on the Power Supply

Notes on Using the Battery (NP-40)

This camera uses the Rechargeable Lithium-ionBattery PackNP-40.Note the points below when using the rechargeable battery. Take particular care to read the Safety Notes to ensure that you use the battery correctly.

When shipped, the NP-40is not fully charged. Always charge theNP-40before using it.

h When carrying the NP-40,install it in a digital camera or

keep it in the soft case. h When storing the NP-40,

place it inside the special soft case provided.

Battery Features

h The NP-40gradually loses its charge even when not used. Use aNP-40that has been charged recently (in the last day or two) to take pictures.

h To maximize the life of the NP-40,switch the camera off as quickly as possible when it is not being used.

h The number of available shots will be lower in cold locations or at low temperatures. Take along a spare fully charged NP-40.

You can also increase the amount of power produced by putting the NP-40in your pocket or another warm place to heat it and then loading it into the camera just before you take a picture.

If you are using a heating pad, take care not to place the NP40 directly against the pad. The camera may not operate if you use a depleted NP-40in cold conditions.

Charging the Battery

h You can charge the battery using the camera and the AC power adapter (supplied).

iThe NP-40can be charged at ambient temperatures between 0°C and +40°C (+32°F and +104°F). At an ambient temperature of +23°C (+73°F), it takes approximately 2 hours to charge a fully depletedNP-40battery.

iYou should charge the NP-40at an ambient temperature between +10°C and +35°C (+50°F and +95°F). If you charge theNP-40at a temperature outside this range, charging takes longer because the performance of theNP-40is impaired.

iYou cannot charge the NP-40at temperatures of 0°C (+32°F) or below.

h You can also use the optional Battery Charger BC-65to charge theNP-40.When charging, use theNP-40battery adapter supplied with theBC-65(Refer to the Owner’s Manual for details).

iThe NP-40can be charged using theBC-65Battery Charger at ambient temperatures between 0°C to +40°C (+32°F to +104°F). At an ambient temperature of +23°C (+73°F), it takes approximately 90 minutes to charge a fully depletedNP-40battery.

iYou should charge the NP-40at an ambient temperature between +10°C to +35°C (+50°F to +95°F). If you charge theNP-40at a temperature outside this range, charging takes longer because the performance of theNP-40is impaired.

h The NP-40does not need to be fully discharged or exhausted flat before being charged.

h The NP-40may feel warm after it has been charged or immediately after being used. This is perfectly normal.

h Do not recharge a fully charged NP-40.

Battery Life

At normal temperatures, the NP-40can be used at least 300 times.

If the time for which the NP-40provides power shortens markedly, this indicates that theNP-40has reached the end of its effective life and should be replaced.

Notes on storage

The Rechargeable Lithium-ionBattery PackNP-40is both compact and capable of storing large quantities of power. However, if it is stored for long periods while charged, the performance of the battery can be impaired. h If the battery will not be used for some time, run the

battery flat before storing it.

h Always remove the battery from the camera or battery charger when it is not being used.

h Place the battery pack inside the soft case and store in a cool place.

The battery should be stored in a dry location with an ambient temperature between +15°C and +25°C (+59°F and +77°F).

Do not leave the battery in hot or extremely cold places. 93

Notes on the Power Supply

Handling the Battery

To avoid injury or damage, observe the following:

h Do not allow the metal portions of the battery to touch other metal objects.

h Do not bring the battery close to a flame or throw it into a fire.

h Do not attempt to disassemble or modify the battery.

h Do not recharge the battery with chargers other those specified.

h Dispose of used batteries promptly.

To avoid damaging the battery or shortening its life, observe the following:

h Do not drop the battery or otherwise subject it to strong impacts.

h Do not immerse the battery in water.

To ensure that you obtain optimum battery performance, observe the following:

h Always keep the battery terminals clean.

h Store the battery in a cool, dry place. Storing the battery for long periods in a hot location can shorten the battery life.

If you use the battery for a long period, the camera body and the battery itself will become warm. This is normal and is not a malfunction. Use the AC power adapter supplied with the camera if you are taking pictures or viewing images for a long period of time.

Notes on the xD-PictureCard™

Image Memory Card

h This Image Memory Card is a new image recording media (xD-Picture Card) developed for digital cameras. The Image Memory Card consists of a semiconductor memory(NAND-typeflash memory) to record digital image data.

The recording process is electrically performed and enables erasure of existing image data as well as rerecording of new image data.

h When using a new Memory Card, or a Memory Card that has been initialized by a PC, be sure to initialize (format/initialize) the card with your digital camera before using it.

Protecting Your Data

h Data may be lost or destroyed in the following situations. Please note that FUJIFILM assumes no responsibility for data that is lost or destroyed.

1.Removal of the memory card or turning the power off while the memory card is being accessed (i.e., during record, erase, initialization, and playback operations).

2.Improper handling and use of the memory card by the user or third party.

h We recommend saving your important data to another media (i.e., MO disk, CD-R,hard disk, etc.).

Notes on HandlingxD-PictureCard

h Keep xD-Picture Cards out of the reach of small children. When storingxD-PictureCards, ensure that they are kept in a location out of the reach of small children to prevent a card being accidentally swallowed. AnxD-Picture Card could cause suffocation if accidentally swallowed. If a child swallows anxD-Picture Card, seek medical advice immediately.

h Make sure that the memory card is straight when you insert into the camera etc.

h The memory card is a precision electronic instrument. Do not apply pressure or shock, and avoid bending.

h Do not use the memory card in a hot, humid, or corrosive environment.

h If the contact area on the card is soiled (dust, fingerprints, etc.), wipe it clean with a soft, dry cloth.

h Clean the memory card with a soft dry piece of cloth when dirty.

h xD-Picture Cards should be kept in their special cases or carrying cases when being stored or carried around.

h The memory card can be used reliably for a long period of time, but will eventually lose its ability to store and play back image data. At this point, replace with a new memory card.

h Never remove the xD-Picture Card or switch the camera off during data recording, during data erasing(xD-Picture Card formatting) or during frame advance when images are being played back. These actions could result in damage to thexDPicture Card.

h Do not affix labels to the xD-Picture Card.

This could result in the label peeling off and causing a fault when the card is inserted or removed.

Notes on UsingxD-PictureCard with a

PC

h If you intend to take photos using an xD-Picture Card that has been used on a PC, format thexDPicture Card on your camera.

h When you format an xD-Picture Card in the camera and then shoot and record images, a directory (folder) is automatically created. Image data is then recorded in this directory.

h Do not change or delete the directory (folder) names or file names on the xD-Picture Card from your PC as this will make it impossible to use thexD-Picture Card in your camera.

h Always use the camera to erase image data on an xD-Picture Card.

h To edit image data, copy the image data to the PC’s hard disk and then edit the copied data.

h Do not copy files other than those that will be used by the camera.

These specifications are subject to change without notice. FUJIFILM shall not be held liable for damages resulting from errors in this Owner’s Manual.

The LCD monitor on your digital camera is manufactured using advanced high-precisiontechnology. Even so, small bright points and anomalous colors (particularly around text) may appear on the monitor. These are normal display characteristics and do not indicate a fault with the monitor. This phenomenon will not appear on the recorded image.

The operation error may be caused in a digital camera by the strong radio interference (i. e. electric fields, static electricity, line noise, etc.).

Due to the nature of the lens, the edges of photographed images may appear distorted. This is normal and does not indicate a fault.

Explanation of Terms

AF/AE Lock:

On the FinePix F610, pressing the shutter button down half way locks the focus and exposure settings (AF and AE lock). If you want to focus on a subject that is not centered in the frame or change the picture composition after the exposure is set, you can obtain good results by changing the composition after the AF and AE settings are locked.

Auto Power Save Function:

If the camera is not used in any way for 30 seconds, this function switches features such as the LCD

monitor off (Sleep mode) to prevent battery depletion and the waste of power when the AC power adapter is connected. If the camera is then left unused for a further period, the Auto Power Save function switches the camera off. This period can be set to 2 minutes or 5 minutes on this camera.

h The Auto Power Off function does not operate in PC mode, during automatic playback, or if it is disabled during setup.

DPOF:

Digital Print Order Format

DPOF is a format used for recording information on a storage media (image memory card, etc.) that allows you to specify which of the frames shot using a digital camera are to be printed and how many prints are made of each image.

EV:

A number that denotes Exposure Value. The EV is determined by the brightness of the subject and sensitivity (speed) of the film or CCD. The number is larger for bright subjects and smaller for dark subjects. As the brightness of the subject changes, a digital camera maintains the amount of light hitting the CCD at a constant level by adjusting the aperture and shutter speed.

When the amount of light striking the CCD doubles, the EV increases by 1. Likewise, when the light is halved, the EV decreases by 1.

Frame rate (fps):

The frame rate refers to the number of images (frames) that are photographed or played back per second. For example, when 10 frames are continuously photographed in a 1-secondinterval, the frame rate is expressed as 10 fps. For reference, TV images are displayed at 30 fps.

JPEG:

Joint Photographics Experts Group

A file format used for compressing and saving color images. The higher the compression rate, the greater the loss of quality in the decompressed (restored) image.

Motion JPEG:

A type of AVI (Audio Video Interleave) file format that handles images and sound as a single file. Images in the file are recorded in JPEG format. Motion JPEG can be played back by QuickTime 3.0 or later.

PC Card:

A generic term for cards that meet the PC Card Standard.

PC Card Standard:

A standard for PC cards determined by the PCMCIA.

PCMCIA:

Personal Computer Memory Card International Association (US).

Smear:

A phenomenon specific to CCDs whereby white streaks appear on the image when there is a very strong light source, such as the sun or reflected sunlight, in the photography screen.

WAVE:

A standard format used on Windows systems for saving audio data. WAVE files have the “.WAV” file extension and the data can be saved in either compressed or uncompressed format. Uncompressed recording is used on this camera.

WAVE files can be played back on a personal computer using the following software: Windows : MediaPlayer

Macintosh: QuickTime Player

QuickTime 3.0 or later

White Balance:

Whatever the kind of the light, the human eye adapts to it so that a white object still looks white. On the other hand, devices such as digital cameras see a white subject as white by first adjusting the color balance to suit the color of the ambient light around the subject. This adjustment is called matching the white balance.

Exif Print Format is a newly revised digital camera file format that contains a variety of shooting information for optimal printing.
