For Your Safety

Battery capacity varies with make and storage conditions. Some commercially -available batteries may have less capacity than the batteries provided with the camera.

Cautions: Handling Batteries

Do not use batteries that are leaking, deformed, or discolored. Warning: If the batteries leak, clean the battery compartment thoroughly before in- serting new batteries. If fl uid from the battery comes into contact with skin or clothing, fl ush the affected area with water. Iffluidentersyoureyes, immediately flush the affected area with water and seek medical attention. Do not rub your eyes. Failure to observe this pre- caution could result in loss of eyesight.

Do not transport or store with metal objects such as necklaces or hairpins.

Do not disassemble or modify the batteries or battery casing.

Do not expose to strong physical shocks.

Do not expose to water, f l ame, or heat, or store in warm or humid conditions.

Keep out of reach of infants and small children.

Insert in the correct orientation.

Do not mix old and new batteries, batteries with different charge lev- els, or batteries of different types.

If the camera will not be used for an extended period, remove the batteries. Note that the camera clock will be reset (pg. 14).

The batteries may be warm to the touch immediately after use. Turn

the camera off and allow the batteries to cool before handling.

Battery capacity tends to decrease at low temperatures. Keep spare batteries in a pocket or other warm place and exchange as necessary. Cold batteries may recover some of their charge when warmed.

Fingerprints and other foreign matter on the battery terminals can reduce battery performance. Thoroughly clean the terminals with a soft, dry cloth before insert- ing the batteries in the camera.

Ni-MH Batteries

The capacity of Ni-MH batteries may be temporarily reduced when new, after long periods of disuse, or if they are repeatedly recharged before being fully discharged. This is normal and does not indicate a malfunc- tion. Capacity can be increased by repeatedly discharging the batteries using the PDISCHARGE option in the camera setup menu (pg. 107) and recharging them using a battery charger (sold separately). Do not use this option with alkaline batteries.

The camera draws a small amount of current even when off. Ni-MH batteries that have been left in the camera for an extended period may be drawn down to the point that they no longer hold a charge. Battery performance may also drop if the batteries are run down in a device such as a fl ashlight. Use the PDISCHARGE option in the camera setup menu to discharge Ni- MH batteries. Batteries that no lon-

ger hold a charge even after repeatedly being discharged and recharged have reached the end of their service life and must be replaced.

Ni-MH batteries can be recharged in a battery charger (sold separately). Batteries may become warm to the touch after charging. Refer to the instructions provided with the charger for more information. Use the charger with compatible batteries only.

Ni-MH batteries gradually lose their charge when not in use.


Dispose of used batteries in accord with local regulations.

AC Adapters (Available Separately)

Use only FUJIFILM AC adapters designated for use with this camera. Other adapters could damage the camera.

The AC adapter is for indoor use only.

Be sure the DC plug is securely connected to the camera.

Turn the camera off before discon- necting the adapter. Disconnect the adapter by the plug, not the cable.

Do not use with other devices.

Do not disassemble.

Do not expose to high heat and humidity.

Do not subject to strong physical shocks.

The AC adapter may hum or be- come hot to the touch during use. This is normal.

If the AC adapter causes radio in- terference, reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

Using the Camera

To ensure that images are recorded correctly, do not subject the camera to impact or physical shocks while images are being recorded.

Electrical Interference

This camera may interfere with hospital or aviation equipment. Consult with hospital or airline staff before using the camera in a hospital or on an aircraft.

Liquid Crystal

In the event that the monitor or electronic viewfi nder is damaged, care should be taken to avoid contact with liquid crystal. Take the urgent action indicated should any of the following situations arise:

If liquid crystal comes in contact with your skin, clean the area with a cloth and then wash thoroughly with soap and running water.

If liquid crystal enters your eyes, fl ush the affected eye with clean water for at least 15 minutes and then seek medical assistance.

If liquid crystal is swallowed, rinse your mouth thoroughly with water. Drink large quantities of water and induce vomiting, then seek medi- cal assistance.

Take Test Shots

Before taking photographs on important occasions (such as at weddings or before taking the camera on a trip), take a test shot and view the result to ensure that the camera is functioning normally. FUJIFILM Corporation can not accept liability for damages or lost profi ts incurred as a result of product malfunction.
