Inserting/Removing Battery & Card                                    Check: Camera off, Lens retracted, Flash closed
          Slide the Card/Battery door outwards to open it.
          Insert the Battery as shown on the door inside, until it locks.
                 To remove, slide the grey lock first. Settings are preserved for 2 months with no battery.
          Insert the Memory Card with the label facing the front of the camera until it clicks.
                 To remove, push the card until it clicks, then pull the card out upright.

Preventing Vignette from Lens Hood or Filters
          Remove Hood when using the Flash (except in Tele). Also in darkness when AF lamp is needed.
          2nd Filter vignette: 1X(27mm)-1.5X(39mm): AWFUL. ≥2X(54mm): MINIMAL. ≥2,6X(72mm): NONE.

2. RECORDING - PICTURE MODES AND REVIEW
      Set the RECORDING/PLAYBACK switch to

   Intelligent Auto
      Automatically activates STABILIZER, CONTINUOUS AF with AF LAMP, QUICK AF, INTELLIGENT
       ISO, SCENE DETECTION, FACE DETECTION, INTELLIGENT EXPOSURE, DIGITAL RED-EYE
       CORR., BACKLIGHT COMPENSATION AND INTELLIGENT FLASH if the Flash is open.
      Many other Settings acquire temporarily a fixed value that may differ from user-chosen ones,
       e.g. ECONOMY 5 min., QUALITY Fine, AUTO REVIEW 2SEC. and Auto White Balance (AWB)
      Press SH and the AF area may show around a face by the Face Detection.
      Focus range:       1X: 1cm      4-10X: 2mt              11-18X: 1mt

   SCENE DETECTION
    If optimum scene is identified, blue icon displays for 2 seconds, then stays but in red:
