Using viewfinder
When using the viewfinder to take pictures, press DISP/
BACK to turn the LCD monitor off. Turning the LCD 
monitor off conserves battery power.
Frame the shot so that the subject fills the center of the 
viewfinder. When taking a picture at a distance of 1 m to 
2 m (3.3 ft. to 6.6 ft.) using the viewfinder, only the shaded 
area in the figure is photographed.
Viewfinder lamp display
The viewfinder lamp lights or blinks when turning on the 
camera or pressing the shutter button. The viewfinder 
lamp shows camera status.
Holding the camera correctly
• The viewfinder cannot be used to take shots in Macro 
mode.
• For more precise shot framing, use the LCD monitor to 
take the picture.

Using the viewfinder allows 
for a steady arm position, 
preventing picture blur.
