SAFETY

PRECAUTIONS

CAUTION

RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK

DO NOT OPEN

CAUTION: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK.

DO NOT REMOVE COVER (OR BACK). NO USER-SERVICEABLEPARTS INSIDE.

REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSONNEL.

The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol, within an equilateral triangle, is intended to alert the user to the presence of uninsulated "dangerous voltage" within the product's enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock to persons.

The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence of important operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in the literature accompanying the appliance.

The AA-V37AC Power Adapter should be used with:

AC 120 V`, 60 Hz in the USA and Canada, AC 110 – 240 V`, 50/60 Hz in other countries.

CAUTION (applies to the AA-V37)

TO PREVENT ELECTRIC SHOCK MATCH WIDE BLADE OF PLUG TO WIDE SLOT, FULLY INSERT.

ATTENTION (s’applique à l’AA-V37)

POUR ÉVITER LES CHOCS ÉLECTRIQUES, INTRODUIRE LA LAME LA PLUS LARGE DE LA FICHE DANS LA BORNE CORRESPONDANTE DE LA PRISE ET POUSSER JUSQU’AU FOND.

WARNING:

TO PREVENT FIRE OR SHOCK HAZARD, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS UNIT TO RAIN OR MOISTURE.

IMPORTANT PRODUCT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Electrical energy can perform many useful functions. But improper use can result in potential electrical shock or fire hazards. This product has been engineered and manufactured to assure your personal safety. In order not to defeat the built-insafeguards, observe the following basic rules for its installation, use and servicing.

ATTENTION:

Follow and obey all warnings and instructions marked on your product and its operating instructions. For your safety, please read all the safety and operating instructions before you operate this product and keep this manual for future reference.

INSTALLATION

1. Grounding or Polarization

(A)Your product may be equipped with a polarized alternating-currentline plug (a plug having one blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety feature.

If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.

(B)Your product may be equipped with a 3-wiregrounding-typeplug, a plug having a third (grounding) pin. This plug will only fit into agrounding-typepower outlet. This is a safety feature.

If you are unable to insert the plug into the outlet, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the grounding-typeplug.

2. Power Sources

Operate your product only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure of the type of power supply to your home, consult your product dealer or local power company. If your product is intended to operate from battery power, or other sources, refer to the operating instructions.

3. Overloading

Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral convenience receptacles as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.

4. Power Cord Protection

Power supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against them, paying particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the product.

EN3

5. Ventilation

Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for ventilation. To ensure reliable operation of the product and to protect it from overheating, these openings must not be blocked or covered.

•Do not block the openings by placing the product on a bed, sofa, rug or other similar surface.

•Do not place the product in a built-ininstallation such as a bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation is provided or the manufacturer’s instructions have been adhered to.

6. Wall or Ceiling Mounting

The product should be mounted to a wall or ceiling only as recommended by the manufacturer.

ANTENNA INSTALLATION

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Outdoor Antenna Grounding

If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the product, be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-upstatic charges. Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, provides information with regard to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of thelead-inwire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode.

2. Lightning

For added protection for this product during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system. This will prevent damage to the product due to lightning and power-linesurges.

3. Power Lines

An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such power lines or circuits as contact with them might be fatal.

MAJORFEATURESEN7

Three high-qualitystill image shooting modes Using the SmartMedia™ card* increases photo capacity

1. 6M Pro-Still(Pixel Shift Mode) (Z pg. 46)

This mode collects twice as much image data by using two exposures (with the CCD shifted one pixel for the second exposure), resulting in an image consisting of 6 million pixels, or twice as many in normal mode.

2. DR Pro-Still(Wide Range Mode) (Z pg. 47)

This mode uses two exposures, one with the exposure adjusted for the dark portions of the image, and one with the exposure adjusted for the bright portions of the image. By using the image data from both exposures, it is possible to achieve a wide dynamic range that was previously impossible. This mode avoids pictures where part of the image is blacked out or whited out, which occurs easily with conventional digital cameras.

3. NR Pro-Still(Noise Reduction Mode) (Z pg. 48)

This mode uses several exposures to collect a large amount of image information, then extracts the signal components and eliminates the noise components. This mode eliminates electronic noise, which occurs easily with conventional digital cameras.

This unit is compatible with SmartMedia™ cards* (optional), which can be used to increase the number of pictures that can be taken.

*“SmartMedia™ card” (which is described as “Memory card” in this instruction manual) is a trademark of Toshiba Corporation.

Before taking important photos

cWhen you need to take an important photo, always take a test photo first and confirm that the camera is operating normally.

cMemory card is not installed when this unit is purchased. Be sure to install a Memory card before taking photos.

cBefore shooting, always confirm how much memory is remaining from the memory card.

cWe cannot bear any responsibility for an inability to shoot, record, or playback material normally in the event of a problem with a digital video camera, Memory card, etc.

cStore backups of important photos on a personal computer, etc. We cannot bear any responsibility for pictures stored in memory that are lost or altered.

Video Shooting

This feature is useful, if you want to send a short video by e-mail.

Collage shooting

This feature allows you to combine a subject with a previously photographed background with a simple operation.

Copyrights

You may only use material that you photograph or record with this digital camera for your own personal use, and not in any way that infringes on the copyrights of a third party. (Note that some performances and exhibits have restrictions against photography, even if only for your personal use.)
