Remarks: *1: Images shot in high-sensitivity photography (ISO 400 or higher) may appear coarse and may also be affected by noise such as white dots. *2: CCD-RAW is a format specific to the FinePix S2 Pro. The enclosed “FinePix Viewer” software or the optional Hyper-Utility software “Shooting Software” is required to interpret the images. *3: Images shot with long exposures (1 second or longer) may appear coarse and may also be affected by noise such as white dots. *4: The figures shown for the number of available shots are a guide to the number of consecutive shots that can be taken at normal temperatures with the flash used in 50% of the shots. Note that the actual number of available shots may differ due to variations in the ambient temperature when the camera is used and the amount of battery charge. The number of available shots is lower at low temperatures. Note: The color LCD monitor on your digital camera is manufactured using advanced high-precision technology. Even so, up to 0.01% of the pixels may fail to light or may remain permanently lit. This phenomenon will not appear on the recorded image. The operation error may be caused in a digital camera by the strong radio interference (i. e. electric fields, static electricity, line noise, etc.). * 2 This is a guide to the number of consecutive shots that can be taken at normal temperatures. Actual numbers may vary depending on the camera's operating conditions and the amount of charge in the batteries. • The color LCD monitor on your digital camera is manufactured using advanced high-precision technology. Even so, small bright points and anomalous colors (particularly around text) may be less contrasty. • Design and specifications are subject to change without notice. • The color LCD monitor on your digital camera is manufactured using advanced high-precision technology. Even so, small bright points and anomalous colors (particularly around text) may appear on the monitor. These are normal display characteristics and do not indicate a fault with the monitor. This phenomenon will not appear on the recorded image.

Batteries uses and symptoms When batteries are near depletion or depleted.

AA-size Alkaline batteries Image processing "Err" appears on the top display panel
Lithium batteries CR123A Power functions such as auto focus, aperture, mirror and shutter operation, and charge the flash. The camera will not switch on.
Button cell lithium battery CR2025 Stores the time and other settings When the AA-size batteries are removed for replacement, the time and other settings revert to the factory default settings.

G-type Nikkor and other CPU Nikkor lens 1. The G-type Nikkor lens has no aperture ring; aperture should be selected from camera body. Unlike other CPU Nikkor lenses, aperture does not need to be set to minimum (largest f-number). 2. CPU Nikkor lenses other than G-type Nikkor lens have an aperture ring. Set the lens aperture to its minimum and lock. When the lens is not set to its minimum aperture setting and the power switch is turned on, “¢Æ” blinks in the top display panel and viewfinder and the shutter cannot be released.

Other essential info relates to use of Nikkor Lenses: * Spot Metering area can be shifted with focus area selector with CPU Nikkor lens. IX-Nikkor lenses cannot be attached. 3 This camera is compatible with the Vibration Reduction function of the VR Nikkor lens. 4 The camera’s exposure metering and flash control system do not work properly when shifting and/or tilting the lens, or when using an aperture other than the maximum aperture. 5. Without shifting and/or tilting the lens. 6. Compatible with AF-S and AF-I Nikkor except AF-S 17-35 mm f/2.8D IF-ED and AF-S 28-70 mm f/2.8D IF-ED. 7. With maximum effective aperture of f/5.6 or faster. 8 With maximum aperture of f/5.6 or faster. 9 Some lenses/accessories cannot be attached 10 With exposure mode set to Manual. The exposure meter cannot be used. 11 With exposure mode set to Manual and shutter speed set to 1/125 sec. or slower but the exposure meter cannot be used. 12 Attach the PB-6 vertically (PB-6 can be set to horizontal position after attaching). 15 must be attached in combination with Medical-Nikkor 200 mm f/5.6 for the lens to fire flash. Reprocopy Outfit PF-4 can be attached in combination with Camera Holder PA-4.Also: When a non-CPU lens is attached Set exposure mode to “M” Manual with a non-CPU lens. (When other modes are selected, shutter cannot be released.) The camera’s exposure meter cannot be used and the aperture cannot be set using the subcommand Dial when using non-CPU lenses. “`” appears in place of the aperture indication in the top display panel and viewfinder

NIKON FLASH UNITS THAT CAN BE USED: The Nikon flash models listed in the table below can be used with this camera. In the table, 1 indicates D- or G-type Nikkor lenses (except IX-Nikkor), 2 indicates CPU Nikkor lens other than D- or G-type (except AF Nikkor for F3AF) and 3 indicates non-CPU Nikkor lenses.

Flash control modes that can be used with the built-in flash: D- or G-type Nikkor lens: 3D Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash*1 (with Distance Information and Monitor Pre-Flash *2 CPU Nikkor lens other than D/G- type (except AF Nikkor for F3AF): Multi-Sensor Balanced Fill-Flash*1 (with Monitor Pre-Flash*2; Non-CPU Nikkor lens: Standard TTL *3

*1 metering system other than Spot. *2 Standard TTL is performed with Spot Metering. Also, selecting Manual exposure mode automatically changes the TTL Auto Flash mode to Standard TTL with flash other than SB-28/28DX, 27, 26, 25 and 24 that are equipped with TTL Auto Flash. *3 When Spot metering is selected, Monitor Pre-Flash will not be fired. *4 Wireless Slave Flash can be performed with the SB-26. Shutter speed is automatically controlled to slower than 1/90 sec. when the Wireless Slave Flash selector is set to D. *5 With the SB-29 and SB-21B, autofocus can only be used when an AF Micro-Nikkor (60 mm, 105 mm, 200 mm and 70-180 mm) is attached. *6 Select exposure mode other than Manual or metering system other than Spot. *7 If TTL mode is used with the SB-11 or SB-14, the SC-23 TTL flash control cord is required for the connection, To use “A” or “M” mode, connect the SB-11 or SB-14 with the SC-13 and SU-2. The SC-11 or SC-15 can also be used to connect the SB-11 or SB-14, but in that case the Ready light in the camera’s viewfinder display cannot be used and the shutter speed is not selected automatically. Notes: The synchronized shutter speed when a flash is used is a slow speed of 1/125 sec. or slower. In TTL mode, the ISO sensitivity linked settings are ISO 100-400. With the SB-26, 25 or 24, flash sync mode set on the Speedlight overrides the setting on the camera body. If you set the camera’s synchro mode to “Red-Eye Reduction” or “Red-Eye Reduction Slow Synchro” and then use a Nikon external flash unit that has its own Red-Eye reduction function, the Red-Eye reduction lamp on the external flash unit fires. Also please note: *1 When built-in flash is used and the exposure mode is set to Manual or Spot metering is selected, TTL Auto Flash mode automatically changes to Standard TTL Flash. *2 To cancel Monitor Pre-Flash, select Manual exposure mode or Spot metering. *3 Monitor-Pre Flash is not fired in Standard TTL Flash.

SLOW SYNCHRO MODE: Can be used in the “P” and “A” exposure modes. Because this mode uses a slow shutter speed, it captures the background while at the same time firing the flash to produce a shot that captures the atmosphere of a twilight or nighttime scene. REAR SYNCHRO MODE: Can be used in all exposure modes. In the “P” and “A” exposure modes, a slow shutter speed is used. The flash fires just before the shutter closes. This mode is effective in capturing the subject's movement as a flow of light in a way that looks natural.. ^Rear-Synchro cannot be used with a studio flash system since the correct synchronization cannot be obtained. RED-EYE REDUCTION MODE: Can be used in all exposure modes. The Red-Eye Reduction lamp lights for approx. 1 sec. before the flash fires in order to reduce the Red-Eye effect in photos of people or animals. RED-EYE REDUCTION SLOW SYNCHRO MODE: Can be used in the “P” and “A” exposure modes. This mode combines Red-Eye reduction with a slow shutter speed. a) When a Nikon SB-28/28DX, SB-27 or SB-26 flash unit is used, the Red-Eye reduction lamp on the external flash fires. b) Take care to ensure that the camera and the subjects (people) in the shot do not move until the shutter is released. c) Depending on the type of lens mounted, the light from the Red-Eye reduction lamp may not reach the person, in which case the effect of the Red-Eye reduction lamp is lost.

Credit: In fact all these critical information are duplicated from Fuji's FinePix S2 Pro user's manual. The Company is also easily the MOST caring supplier on backdated photo equipment, as all important literature are available via the web. Ask one copy of this in case you have lost. This site just serves to act in case they change their mind and the information here may be a life day.
