Configuring Basic Settings the First Time You Turn On the, Camera

27

Quick Start Basics

The first time you load a battery into the camera, a screen appears for configuring the 
display language, date, and time settings. Failure to set the date and time correctly 
will cause the wrong date and time data to be recorded with images.

IMPORTANT!

• A screen for language selection will not appear in step 2 of the procedure below if 

you purchased a camera intended for the Japanese market. To change the display 
language from Japanese in this case, use the procedure under “Specifying the 
Display Language (Language)” (page 170). Note that a version of this manual in 
the language you select may not be included with a camera intended for the 
Japanese market.

• Camera models sold in certain geographic areas may not support display language 

selection.
