LCD Panel The liquid crystal panel of the monitor screen uses high - precision technology that provides a pixel yield in excess of 99.99 % . This means that some very small number of pixels may not light or may remain lit at all times . This is due to the characteristics of the liquid crystal panel , and does not indicate malfunction . Take a few test shots Before shooting your final image , shoot a test shot to ensure that the camera is recording correctly . 3

• Pixels A digital camera image is a collection of small Pixel dots called " pixels " . The more pixels there are in an image , the more detail there will be . However , you generally can do with fewer pixels when printing an image ( L size ) through a print service , attaching an image to e - mail , when viewing the image on a computer , etc . • About image sizes The size of an image indicates how many 3072 pixels it contains , and is expressed as horizontal pixelsxvertical pixels . ( _ ) 3072X2304 size image = Approximately 7 64O million pixels ( _ ) 640X480 size image = Approximately 300,000 pixets Image Size Selection Tips Unit : pixets Note that larger images have more pixels , so they take up more memory space .

• Select " Flash Off ' for the flash setting when shooting in areas where flash photograph is prohibited . • Approximate Flash Range ( ISO Sensitivity : Auto ) Wide Angle : 0.2 m to 2.8 m ( 0.7 ' to 9.2 ' ) Telephoto : 0.4 m to 1.5 m ( 1.3 ' to 4.9 ' ) The above values depend on the optical zoom setting . Red - eye Reduction Using the flash to shoot at night or in a dimly lit room can cause red spots inside the eyes of people who are in the image . This is caused when the light from the flash reflects off of the retina of the eye . When red - eye reduction is selected as the flash mode , the camera fires a pre - flash to cause the irises in the eyes of any people in the image to close , which reduces the chance of red eye . Note the following important points when using red - eye reduction . • Red - eye reduction does not work unless the people in the image are looking directly at the camera ( flash ) . • Red - eye reduction may not work very well if the subjects are located far away from the camera . Other Useful Flash Features • Changing the flash intensity ( page 71 ) • Compensating for insufficient flash intensity ( page 71 ) 27 Snapshot Tutorial

Tips for Better Auto Shutter Snapshots • Using Auto Shutter in combination with Anti Shake ( page 62 ) reduces the chance of image blur even more . • While recording with Detect Blur or Detect Smile , keep the camera as still as possible until the recording operation is complete . • If the camera remains in Auto Shutter standby without releasing the shutter , you can record an image by pressing the shutter button all the way down again . • Detect Blur and Detect Panning may not produce the desired effect when shooting in an area where dim lighting requires a slow shutter speed , or when the subject is moving extremely quickly . • Since facial expressions differ from individual to individual , you may experience problems with getting the camera to release the shutter while Detect Smile is being used . If this happens , change the trigger sensitivity setting . • The Auto Power Off ( page 130 ) trigger time is fixed at five minutes while the camera is in Auto Shutter standby . Sleep ( page 129 ) is disabled while Auto Shutter being used . • Auto Shutter cannot be used in combination with any of the following features . - Some BEST SHOT sample scenes ( Business cards and documents , White board , etc . , Prerecord ( Movie ) , For YouTube , Voice Recording ) • You cannot use the Triple Self - timer in combination with Auto Shutter . 31 Snapshot Tutorial

Tips for Best Face Recognition Results • Face recognition in the Family First mode is slightly faster than that in the Normal mode . Also , compared with the Normal mode , the Family First mode will not be able to detect faces that are far away and small . • The camera performs center focus if it cannot detect a face . • Always make sure that Auto Focus ( AF ) is selected as the focus mode when shooting with face recognition . • Face recognition may take a bit longer when you hold the camera sideways . • Even if you have the face of a family member pre - recorded , the person's facial expression , shooting conditions , or other factors can make proper detection ( highest priority assignment ) impossible . • Face recognition can be improved by pre - recording multiple versions of the same person's face indoors and outdoors , with different expressions , and at different angles . • Detection of the following types of faces is not supported . - Face that is obstructed by hair , sunglasses , a hat , etc . , or a face in dark shade - A profile or a face that is at an angle - A face that is very far away and small , or very close and large - A face in an area that is very dark - The face of a pet or some other non - human subject • Face recognition cannot be used in combination with any of the following features . - Some BEST SHOT scenes ( Business cards and documents , White board , etc . , Prerecord ( Movie ) , For YouTube , Voice Recording ) • The following functions are disabled when shooting with face recognition . - Multi AF 37 Snapshot Tutorial
