Read this section for information on copying pictures to a computer.
Use [MyFinePix Studio] to copy pictures to your computer, where they can be stored, viewed, organized, and printed. [MyFinePix Studio] is available for download from the following website. Once download is complete, double-click the downloaded file (“[MFPS_Setup.EXE]”) and follow the on-screen instructions to complete installation.
Pictures can be copied to your computer using Image Capture (supplied with your computer) or other software.
To view RAW files on your computer, use the [RAW FILE CONVERTER], available for download from the following website.
Find a memory card containing pictures you want to copy to the computer and insert the card into the camera.
Windows users may require the Windows CD when starting the software for the first time.
Loss of power during transfer could result in loss of data or damage to the memory card. Insert a fresh or fully-charged battery before connecting the camera.
Turn the camera off and connect a USB cable (available separately from third-party suppliers) as shown, making sure the connectors are fully inserted. Connect the camera directly to the computer; do not use a USB hub or keyboard.
The USB cable must be no more than 60 cm (1.9 ft.) long and be suitable for data transfer.
Turn the camera on.
Copy pictures to the computer using [MyFinePix Studio] or applications provided with your operating system.
If a memory card containing a large number of images is inserted, there may be a delay before the software starts and you may be unable to import or save images. Use a memory card reader to transfer pictures.
Make sure that the computer does not display a message stating that copying is in progress and that the indicator lamp is out before turning the camera off or disconnecting the USB cable (if the number of images copied is very large, the indicator lamp may remain lit after the message has cleared from the computer display). Failure to observe this precaution could result in loss of data or damage to the memory card.
Disconnect the camera before inserting or removing memory cards.
In some cases, it may not be possible to access pictures saved to a network server using the software in the same way as on a standalone computer.
The user bears all applicable fees charged by the phone company or Internet service provider when using services that require an Internet connection.
Disconnecting the Camera
After confirming that the indicator lamp is out, turn the camera off and disconnect the USB cable.
