As of December 2009

* When recording a movie, using a Class 6 or faster SD (SDHC) Memory Card .
It allows you to shoot the movie without having to stop mid-way.
* If saving still images, using a Class 6 or faster SD (SDHC) Memory Card.
It gives no noticeable improvement in the continuous shooting speed but faster SD (SDHC) Memory card is recommended.
* "Recommended" denotes only that the operation of the product has been checked by PENTAX and in no way constitutes a guarantee to customers that the product is suited to their requirements.
Memo: Class 6 --- SD (SDHC) Memory Card with a guaranteed write speed faster than 6MB/s (48Mbps).

When using SD (SDHC) Memory Cards, what should I do first?
Card that are unused or that have been used on other devices, such as another camera or a computer, must first be formatted on the OptioI-10.

*Please note that formatting will delete any data recorded on the card.
*When using a new Eye-fi card, copy the install file of Eye-Fi Manager stored on the card to your computer before you format the card.

Can the Micro SD (SDHC) memory card be used?
No guarantee of proper operation with SD card adapter.
Please use SD (SDHC) memory card.
What are the figures for the number of recordable still images and the length of recordable video or audio for each of the SD (SDHC) Memory Card capacities?
The figures vary depending on the shooting conditions and subject, but an approximate guide to the number of still images, the length of continuous movie recording time and the length of audio recording time in Voice Recording mode can be found here.
Are there any precautions needed when using SD (SDHC) Memory Cards?
  • Be sure to use this camera to format (initialize) an SD Memory Card that is unused.
  • Card that are unused or that have been used on other devices, such as another camera or a computer, must first be formatted on the OptioI-10.
    *Note that formatting a card erases all the data on the card, including protected images and sound files.
  • Do not bend an SD (SDHC) Memory Card or subject it to violent impacts. And do not leave cards in locations where they will be exposed to moisture or high temperatures. Doing so will result in the corruption of stored data and/or damage to the SD (SDHC) Memory Card.
  • Do not remove an SD (SDHC) Memory Card or turn the camera off while you are recording data or playing back images or audio, or while the camera is connected to a computer via a USB cable. Doing so will result in the corruption of stored data and/or damage to the SD (SDHC) Memory Card.
  • Avoid using or storing the card where it may be exposed to static electricity or electrical interference.
  • If a card is left unused for a long period, it may no longer be possible to read the data stored on the card. Important data should be backed up regularly.
  • The SD Memory Card is equipped with a write-protect switch. Setting the switch to LOCK prevents
    new data from being recorded on the card, the stored data from being deleted, and the card from being formatted by the camera or computer.

No data is recorded in the built-in memory while there is an SD (SDHC) Memory Card in the camera.
subject is not in focus.
Are you trying to photograph a subject that is difficult to focus on with autofocus?
Certain subjects are not suitable for autofocus, such as subjects with little or no contrast (blue sky, white walls, etc.), dark subjects, finely patterned subjects, fast-moving subjects, and scenes shot through windows or mesh. First focus on an object that is at the same distance as your subject and lock the focus (by pressing the shutter release button down halfway). Then recompose the shot as you want to take it and release the shutter.
The flash does not fire.
Check the following:
  1. Is the flash mode set to [Flash Off]?
  2. Is the drive mode set to [Continuous Shooting] or [Burst shooting]?
  3. Is the focus mode set to [Infinity]?
  4. Is the shooting mode set to [Movie], [Digital Panorama], [Night Scene], [Pet], [Fireworks]or [Candlelight]?
The flash fired but the photo is to dark.
Check the following:
  1. The subject is too far away in a dark location.
    If the subject is too far away, the picture becomes dark because the light of the flash does not reach the subject.
    Use the following as a guide to flash photography:
    Wide-angle: Approx. 0.15 to 4.0 m (with Auto selected as the ISO setting)
    Telephoto: Approx. 1.0 to 2.4 m (with Auto selected as the ISO setting)
  2. The background is too dark.
    When you photograph someone against a dark background, even if your subject is correctly exposed, the light from the flash may not reach the background, so that it appears too dark in the resulting image. You can take a picture that perfectly captures both your subject and nighttime scenery by selecting Night Scene mode (with the [Flash On] flash mode selected) and using a tripod.
