Charging the date/time battery

• The camera has a built-in rechargeable lithium battery for saving settings such as the date and time. This battery is recharged by the AA-size batteries while it is in the camera. Right after purchasing the camera, leave fully charged batteries in the camera, or plug in the AC Adapter Kit ACK600 (sold separately), for about 4 hours to charge the date/time battery. It will charge even when the camera power is turned off.

• If the Date/Time menu appears when the camera power is turned on, the date/time battery charge is low. Use the above method to recharge it.
