¡ Do not recharge any battery pack other than Battery Pack BP-511A, BP514, BP-511, or BP-512. ¡ If the battery is left in the camera for a prolonged period without the camera being used, a low electrical current may be discharged excessively and the battery’s service life may be affected. When not using the camera, remove the battery and attach the protective cover to prevent shorting. Before using the camera again, be sure to recharge the battery. ¡ After the red lamp lights, continue to recharge the battery for an hour to attain a full charge. ¡ By referring to the marking, you can attach the protective cover to the battery to indicate whether the battery has been recharged or not. ¡ After recharging the battery, detach it and unplug the power cord from the power outlet. ¡ The time required to recharge the battery depends on the ambient temperature and battery’s recharge level. ¡ The battery pack can operate in temperatures from 0°C to 40°C (32°F to 104°F). However, for full operating performance, using it between 10°C (50°F) and 30°C (86°F) is recommended. In cold locations such as ski areas, battery performance temporarily decreases and the operating time may be shorter. ¡ If operating time is sharply reduced even after normal recharging, the battery pack may have reached its service life. Replace it with a new battery.

g Setting the ISO SpeedN
The ISO speed is a numeric indication of the sensitivity to light. A higher ISO speed number indicates a higher sensitivity to light. Therefore, a high ISO speed is suited for low light and moving subjects. However, the image may look more coarse with noise, etc. On the other hand, a low ISO speed is not suited for low light or action shots, but the image will look cleaner. The camera can be set between ISO 100 and 1600 in 1stop increments.

ISO Speed in the Basic Zone Modes
The ISO speed is set automatically within ISO 100-400.

ISO Speed in the Creative Zone Modes

About White Balance
The three RGB (red, green, and blue) primary colors exist in the light source in varying proportions depending on the color temperature. When the color temperature is high, there is more blue. And when the color temperature is low, there is more red. To the human eye, a white object looks white regardless of the type of lighting. With a digital camera, the color temperature can be adjusted with software so that the colors in the image look more natural. The subject’s white color is used as the criteria for adjusting the other colors. The camera’s <Q> setting uses the CMOS sensor for auto white balance.

You can also set the AF mode to suit the subject or obtain the desired effect. Evaluative, partial, and centerweighted average metering modes are provided. Single, continuous, and Self-timer drive modes are provided. Select the metering mode that suits the subject or your photographic intention.
