About the Battery 
(charging/number of recordable 
pictures)
∫ The battery life
The number of recordable pictures (By 
CIPA standard in normal picture mode 
[
])
Recording conditions by CIPA standard
• Temperature: 23 °C (73.4 °F)/
Humidity: 50% when LCD monitor is on.
¢
• Using a Panasonic SD Memory Card 
(16 MB).
• Using the supplied battery.
• Starting recording 30 seconds after the 
camera is turned on. (When the optical 
image stabilizer function is set to [MODE1].)
• Recording once every 30 seconds with 
full flash every second recording.
• Rotating the zoom lever from Tele to Wide 
or vice versa in every recording.
• Turning the camera off every 10 
recordings and leaving it until the 
temperature of the battery decreases.
¢ The number of recordable pictures 
decreases when the power LCD 
function or high angle mode (P34) are 
used.
• CIPA is an abbreviation of 
[Camera & Imaging Products 
Association].
Playback time
The number of recordable pictures and 
playback time will vary depending on the 
operating conditions and storing condition 
of the battery.
∫ Charging
Charging time and number of recordable 
pictures with the optional battery pack 
(CGA-S005A) are the same as above.
• The [CHARGE] indicator lights when 
charging starts.
∫ When the [CHARGE] indicator flashes
• The battery is over discharged 
(discharged excessively). In a while, 
[CHARGE] indicator will light up and 
normal charging will start.
• When the battery temperature is 
excessively high or low, [CHARGE] 
indicator flashes and the charging time 
will be longer than normal.
• The terminals of the charger or the battery 
are dirty. In this case, wipe them with a dry 
cloth.
• When the operating time of the camera 
becomes extremely short even after properly 
charging the battery, the life of the battery 
may have expired. Buy a new battery. 
∫ Charging conditions
• Charge the battery in a temperature between 
10
oC to 35 oC (50 oF to 95 oF). (The battery 
temperature should also be the same.)
• The performance of the battery may 
temporarily deteriorate and the operating 
time may become shorter in low temperature 
conditions (e.g. skiing/snowboarding).
Number of 
recordable pictures
Approx. 350 pictures 
(Approx. 175 min) 
(DMC-FX12)/
Approx. 370 pictures 
(Approx. 185 min) 
(DMC-FX10)
The number of recordable pictures 
varies depending on the recording 
interval time.
If the recording interval time becomes 
longer, the number of recordable 
pictures decreases.
[e.g. When recording once every 
2 minutes, the number of recordable 
pictures decreases to about 86 
(DMC-FX12)/92 (DMC-FX10).]
Playback time
Approx. 450 min
Charging time
Approx. 130 min
