    There are two ways in which to provide the camera with power. You can use batteries or

    alternatively, you can use an AC(100 ~ 250V) Adapter (DC 3.3V 2.0A).

    We recommend using batteries for a digital camera.(Within a year from the date of

    manufacture) The batteries are listed below.

    Non rechargeable batteries : AA type Alkaline, Ni-Mn, Ni-Zn, LithiumCR-V3 type Lithium

    Rechargeable batteries : AA type Ni-MH, Ni-Cd (over 1000mA)

    CR-V3 type Digimax Battery I-Pack(SBP-1103)

    Connecting to a Power Source

  • 8/3/2019 Samsung Digimax 301

    15/104

    If you have access to a mains supply, using an AC

    Adapter (3.3V 2.0A) allows the camera to be used

    for long periods of time.

    Plug the adapter into the connection point

    (DC IN 3.3V) on the camera.

    Remove the batteries from the camera when using

    an AC adapter.

    Connecting to a Power Source

    Important information about battery usage

    It is easy to buy alkaline batteries. However, the duration for using batteries varies in

    accordance with the battery manufacturer or the photographic conditions.

    When the camera is not used, turn off the camera power.

    Do not recharge the non rechargeable batteries. It may cause an explosion.

    Please remove the batteries if the camera will not be used for long periods.

    Batteries can lose power over time and are prone to leaking if kept inside the camera.

    We recommend high capacity ALKALINE batteries as manganese batteries cannot

    deliver sufficient power.

    Low temperatures (below 0 ) can affect the performance of the batteries and you

    may experience reduced battery life.Batteries will usually recover at normal temperatures.

    Do not use old and new batteries at the same time.

    During extended use of the camera, the camera body may become warm. This is

    perfectly normal.

    Always turn off the power before taking the AC adapter out of the mains supply.

    As with all mains powered devices, safety is important. Ensure that neither the camera

    nor adapter comes into contact with water or metallic materials.

    Please ensure that you use an AC adapter (3.3V 2.0A) with the correct specification

    for the camera. Failure to do so may affect your warranty.

    The Digimax Battery Pack is a rechargeable external

    Li-ion battery for use with most digital cameras.

    These optional battery packs provide long lasting

    power and their operating performances are muchimproved over Ni-MH and Alkaline batteries. This is

    due to the mass storage lithium ion cell. Refer to the

    illustrations.

    Instructions on how to use the memory card

    The camera comes with 16MB of internal flash memory, allowing you to store images and

    movie clips in the camera. However, you can expand the memory capacity by using an

    optional memory card so that you can store more images and movie clips.

    Be sure to format the memory card (see p. 59) if you are using a newly purchased

    memory for the first time, if it contains data that the camera cannot recognize, or if it

    contains images captured with a different camera.

    Turn off the camera power whenever the memory card is being inserted or removed.

    Repeated use of the memory card will eventually reduce the memory cards

    performance. Should this be the case, you will need to purchase a new memory card.

    Wear and tear on the memory card is not covered by the Samsung warranty.The memory card is an electronic precision device. Do not bend, drop or subject the

    memory card to any heavy impact.

    Do not store the memory card in an environment with strong electronic or magnetic

    fields, e.g. near loud speakers or TV receivers.

    Please do not use or store in an environment where there are extremes in temperature.

    Do not allow the memory card to become dirty or to come into contact with any liquid.

    Should this happen, clean the memory card with a soft cloth.

    Please keep the memory card in its case when not in use.During and after periods of extended use, you may notice that the memory card is

    warm. This is perfectly normal.

    Do not use a memory card that is used in another digital camera or memory card reader.

    Do not use a memory card formatted by another digital camera or memory card reader.

    Maintenance of the memory card

    If the memory card is subjected to any of the following, the recorded data may

    become corrupted :

    - When the memory card is used incorrectly.

    - If the power is switched off or the memory card is removed while recording, deleting

    (formatting) or reading.

    Samsung cannot be held responsible for lost data.

    It is advisable to copy important data onto other media as back-up e.g. floppy disks,

    hard disks, CD etc.

    If there is insufficient memory available :If you press the shutter button for the shot, a[CARD FULL !] message will appear and the camera will not operate. To optimize the

    amount of memory in the camera, replace the memory card or delete unnecessary

    images stored on the memory.

    Backlight compensated shots : When taking an outdoor shot, avoid facing the sun, as

    the image may be dark because of the strong backlight. In backlight conditions, please

    use Fill-in flash(p.28), Spot metering(p.37) or Exposure compensation(p.30).

    Avoid obstructing the lens or the flash when you capture an image.As there can be some differences between what is seen through the Viewfinder and

    the resulting image when taken at a range closer than 1.5m, it is recommended that

    you use the LCD monitor to compose these shots.

    Using the LCD monitor extensively will drain the batteries.

    We recommend turning off the LCD monitor and using the optical viewfinder as often

    as possible in order to extend battery life.

    Under certain conditions the focus system may not perform as expected.

    - In Macro focus mode, if the distance from a subject is closer than 0.19m or fartherthan 0.21m.

    Keep the distance between 0.19m~0.21m in Macro focus mode.

    - In Normal focus mode, if the distance from a subject is closer than 1m.
