Connecting the Camera to a Printer

2 Set up the printer.
  • For details, see the printer's instruction manual.
3 Connecting the camera to a printer.
  • Use the interface cable provided with the camera.

  • To connect to the printer, refer to the printer's instruction manual.
4 Turn on the printer.
5 Set the camera's power switch to <ON>.
  • Some printers may make a beeping sound.
6 Playback the image.
  • Press the <> button.
  • The image will appear, and the <> icon will appear on the upper left to indicate that the camera is connected to a printer.
  • Movies cannot be printed.
  • The camera cannot be used with printers compatible only with CP Direct or Bubble Jet Direct.
  • Do not use any interface cable other than the one provided.

The error message will be displayed on the LCD monitor

  • If you use a battery pack to power the camera, make sure it is fully charged. With a fully-charged battery, printing up to approx. 4 hours is possible.

  • For direct printing, using AC Adapter Kit ACK-E8 (sold separately) to power the camera is recommended.
