What is the "InfoLITHIUM"
The "InfoLITHIUM" battery pack is a
lithium-ion battery pack that has functions
for communicating information related to
operating conditions between your camera
and the AC power adaptor.
The "InfoLITHIUM" battery pack
calculates the power consumption
according to the operating conditions of
your camera, and displays the remaining
battery time in minutes.
Charging the battery pack
We recommend charging the battery pack
in an ambient temperature of between 10°C
to 30°C (50 F to 86 F). You may not be
able to efficiently charge the battery pack
outside of this temperature range.
Effective use of the battery pack
• Battery performance decreases in low-
temperature surroundings. So, the time that
the battery pack can be used is shorter in
cold places. We recommend the following
to ensure longer battery pack use:
– Put the battery pack in a pocket close to
your body to warm it up, and insert it in
your camera immediately before you
• Frequently operating the zoom or flash
wears out the battery charge faster.
• We recommend having spare battery
packs handy for two or three times the
expected shooting time, and making trial
shots before taking the actual shots.
• Do not expose the battery pack to water.
The battery pack is not water-resistant.
Remaining battery time indicator
The power may go off although the battery
remaining indicator shows there is enough
power to operate. Use the battery pack up
and charge the battery pack fully again so
that the indication on the battery remaining
indicator is correct. Note, however, that the
correct battery indication sometimes will
not be restored if the camera is used in high
temperatures for a long time or left in a fully
charged state, or the battery pack is
