GETTING STARTED TIPS
Ÿ If after first turning on the camera the image appears dark, washed out, or otherwise
distorted press the AUTO button to reset and re-calibrate the camera. This should
correct any image quality issues.
Ÿ Sometimes when zooming the image can get darker. To correct this press the AWB
or AUTO button to cause the camera to automatically readjust the image.
Ÿ When using the camera through USB we recommend using 1280x1024 for demonstrating under the camera and 1600x1200 or higher for maximum image quality
when taking snapshots or using the digital zoom within the XSight camera software.
CALIBRATE CAMERA AUTO FOCUS SYSTEM
NOTE: Do not perform these steps if the camera is already focusing without any problems. ONLY perform these steps when the camera is having trouble focusing sharply.
To calibrate the auto focus system follow these steps:
NOTE: You must be connected to VGA, HDMI, or DVI display to perform these steps.
1.
Zoom the camera out to 1X by pressing the WIDE button.
2.
Place an 8.5x11 black and white text document under the camera.
3.
Press the AUTO button to refocus the camera.
4.
Use the NEAR(F11)/FAR(F12) buttons to correct the focus.
5.
Hold the NEGAtive (F4) button for about 3 seconds until CHECK OK message appears on the screen. The CHECK OK message will stay on the screen for 3 to 10 seconds.
6.
After the CHECK OK message has disappeared press the TELE button and zoom in to
approximately 10x then release the TELE button and allow the camera to auto focus.
7.
At this point the camera should be properly calibrated. If not then repeat the process again. If problems persist then contact support@recordexusa.com.
