*1. Number of image values are approximate. Actual values depend on type of data recorded. *2. Maximum value displayed by the camera. Actual image capacity is greater than this value. *3. Fires when lighting it is dark. *4. Expected results may not be obtained due to subject conditions, etc.
*5. For rechargeable batteries, use optional NP-H3 nickel metal hydride (Ni-MH) batteries. *6. Battery Life Times •Values indicate approximate time until power failure under normal temperature (250C), no guarantee for times indicated. Low temperature shortens battery life. •Number of image values for continuous recording indicate the number of images when flash is turned off. Recording one image per minute reduces the number of images by 1 / 6. The values are also greatly reduced by use of the flash and turning camera power on and off. The speed that the battery capacity indicator changes is also affected by differences in battery characteristics. •The value for alkaline batteries are based on MX1500(AA) DURACELL ULTRA, the lithium batteries are based on Energizer, and the lithium battery pack are based on Matsushita Battery Industrial Co.,Ltd. Battery life varies with brand
