(Imprinting simulated)
Date it! Caption it!
With the Sure Shot u series Date Model, you can imprint each
picture with the Month, Day and Year (in your choice of formats) or
the Day and Time. If you prefer a Caption Model, there’s the Sure Shot
130u caption model. It lets you personalize your images with a choice
of five phrases: I LOVE YOU, THANK YOU! SEASON’S GREETING,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY and CONGRATULATIONS — in any of five languages:
English, Spanish, French, German and Japanese. Or imprint the date
and time. It’s your call.
The 130u caption model is also compatible with the optional
Remote Controller
RC-5. This remote
controller lets you
operate the camera
from up to 16.4 feet
away for a more
relaxed shooting
experience.
Sensitive, smart Exposure Control
Indoors or out — in spotlight, shadow or
backlight — these cameras instantly create the
perfect exposure for your pictures. You never
have to think about it. A Central Area Sensor
produces brilliant, accurately exposed images
-1.5 EV
roll after roll. For greater precision, there’s the
Sure Shot 130u with a 16-Zone Metering Sensor
that offers more control in subtle lighting
situations.
When your creative impulse strikes, the u
±0 EV
series cameras offer Manual Exposure
Compensation. Use it to “take over” the camera’s
automatic settings to create an image of your
own imagining. To produce darker, romantic
exposures, set the –1.5 EV setting. To brighten
+1.5 EV
your shot, select + 1.5 EV.
Low light or backlight, the built-in
automatic 7-mode* Light Guide Zoom
Flash provides stellar results, and
the Red-Eye Reduction feature
keeps eyes looking bright and
natural. (*6-mode on 115u, 105u, 90u and 80u)
Stay focused — 3 Point Smart AutoFocus
To keep your pictures super-sharp as you zoom, the u series
cameras automatically switch between multiple focusing points —
the 130u uses seven, the other
models use five — in separate
stages (three for the 130u, two for
all others) according to your zoom
position. Feeling creative? Select
Center Point AF to concentrate
focus on a special subject and
create something unique.
