The Write Protect Switch
SD memory cards are equipped with a 
write protect switch to prevent 
accidental loss of data. When this switch 
is in the “lock” position, the memory 
card can not be formatted and photos 
can not be deleted or recorded (a warning will be displayed in the 
monitor if you attempt to release the shutter). To unlock the memory 
card, slide the switch to the “write” position.

No Memory Card
If no memory card is inserted, the control 
panel and viewfinder will show S. If the 
camera is turned off with a charged EN-EL15 
battery and no memory card inserted, S 
will be displayed in the control panel.
