∫Recording still pictures
Recording conditions by CIPA standard
•CIPA is an abbreviation of [Camera & Imaging Products Association].
•Temperature: 23 oC (73.4 oF)/Humidity: 50%RH when LCD monitor is on.
•Using a Panasonic SD Memory Card (32 MB).
•Using the supplied battery.
•Starting recording 30 seconds after the camera is turned on. (When the Optical Image Stabiliser
function is set to [ON].)
•Recording once every 30 seconds using full flash every second recording.
•Changing the zoom magnification 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
The number of recordable pictures varies depending on the recording interval time. As
the recording interval time becomes longer, the number of recordable pictures
decreases. [For example, if you were to take one picture every two minutes, then the
number of pictures would be reduced to approximately one-quarter of the number of
pictures given above (based upon one picture taken every 30 seconds).]
