Shooting With XF1 "Made Easy"
When you first receive your little guy, fully charge the battery and insert the battery and memory card in the chamber on the bottom of the camera (pages 15 and 16, Owner's Manual)).
Next, turn on the camera (Pages 20 and 21). If your camera was in the EXR Mode from the factory you should see the EXR(Auto)Mode display on the LCD screen, if not turn the selector to EXR (pages 30 and 31). You should now be in the EXR (Auto) Mode and ready to shoot to your hearts content, but first make sure you format your memory card (page 131).
My advice to you is don't get too overly concerned by all the data on the LCD screen, just go about shooting for now. After a while you will learn all about other modes and explore various settings. Above all, don't get all tied up with various modes and settings until you feel comfortable handling the camera and have taken some images that you feel look respectable.
After you use the XF1 for a while you will find that the Fuji engineers really know what they are doing and that the EXR (Auto) Mode produces outstanding images with very little effort on your part. :))
