• Setting the Picture Resolution and Compression
Picture resolution refers to the number of pixels in a digital picture.
Picture quality depends on the JPEG file compression that the camera
applies when the picture is taken. Higher resolution and less compression
make better quality which occupies more memory space. Smaller size
pictures and normal quality are easier to email while larger size and fine
quality are better for printing.

• Changing the ISO Speed
This function enables you to change the camera’s sensitivity to light
by selecting different ISO values. ISO is a measure of how quickly
your camera reacts to light. The higher the ISO value, the less the
light needed to make an exposure, allowing the same exposure to be
achieved with higher shutter speeds or smaller apertures. In a digital
camera, higher ISO value allows higher shutter speed, at the expense of
mottled or grain appearing in the final picture.
You can change the ISO value according to the following steps:
Set the Mode selector to Manual and turn on the camera.
Press
Press
Press
or
to
select
Press
100/200/400: In the same lighting condition, the higher ISO value is,

6 Using the SD Card
• Using the SD (Secure Digital) card
Your camera comes with approximately 16MB of built-in flash memory
for storing pictures/video clips. You can expand the memory using a
commercially available SD card (up to 256MB). The camera senses
whether a memory card is inserted, and automatically saves pictures
accordingly. Note that you cannot save pictures to built-in flash memory
while a memory card is installed in the camera.
Memory Card Precautions
1. Use only an SD memory card with this camera. Proper operation is not
guaranteed when any other type of card is used.
2. Electrostatic charge, electrical noise, and other phenomena can cause
data corruption or even loss. Always make sure that you always back up
important data on other media (MO disc, computer hard drive, etc.).
3. If a memory card starts to behave abnormally, you can restore normal
operation by reformatting it. However, we recommend that you always
take along more than one memory card whenever using the camera far
away from the home or office.
4. We recommend that you format a memory card before using it for the
first time after purchasing it, or whenever the card you are using seems
to be the cause of abnormal pictures. Remember to format a memory
card if it was used in another digital camera or other devices.
IMPORTANT!
• Make sure you turn off the camera before inserting or removing a memory card.
• Be sure to orient the card correctly when inserting it. Never try to force a
memory card into the slot when you feel resistance.
• SD memory cards have a write protect switch, which you can use to protect
against accidental deletion of picture data. “Whenever you want to record,
format or delete item in the SD Card, you must disable write protection.”

Polaroid PDC 4350 Digital Camera User Guide

Inserting the SD Card
Turn off the camera and open the battery door as illustrated. Insert the
SD card ensuring the card is inserted correctly as illustrated. Close the
SD card door. Make sure that the terminal of the memory card is facing
the front of the camera.
Notched
corner of SD
card
Removing the SD Card
To remove the SD card, turn off your camera , open the SD card door,
gently push the SD card inwards and then release it. The SD card will
eject out from the SD card door as illustrated.
IMPORTANT!
• Never insert any other objects besides a SD memory card into the camera’s
card slot. Doing so creates the risk of damaging the camera and card slot.
• Make sure that the terminal of the memory card is facing towards the front
of the camera.
• Should water or any foreign objects ever get into the card slot, immediately
turn off the camera, remove the batteries or disconnect the AC adaptor, and
contact your dealer or nearest service provider.

• DPOF (Digital Print Order Format)
The letters ”DPOF” stand for “Digital Print Order Format”, which is a
format for recording on a memory card or other medium which digital
camera images should be printed and how many copies of the image
should be printed. Then you can print on a DPOF-compatible printer or
at a professional print service from the memory card in accordance with
the file name and number of copies settings recorded on the card.
With this camera, you should always select images by viewing them on
the LCD screen. Do not specify images by file name without viewing the
file contents.
IMPORTANT!
DPOF print settings can be configured for images on a memory card only, not
for images in the camera’s built-in memory. To configure DPOF print settings for
images in the camera memory, you need to copy the images to a memory card
first.

• P.I.M. (PRINT Image Matching)
This camera supports PRINT Image Matching. Images recorded with it
include information about the mode setting, camera setup, etc. When
you print an image on a printer that supports PRINT Image Matching,
the printer reads this data and adjusts the printed image accordingly,
so your image comes out just the way you intended when you recorded
them. See the documentation that came with your printer for full details
about PRINT Image Matching.
Now your digital camera and your printer can speak the same language.
PRINT Image Matching technology ensures that PRINT Image Matchingenabled digital cameras and printers work together perfectly to produce
the best possible prints. Through this innovative technology, the printer
is able to instantly identify the print specific information for each image
captured, to provide superior colour, quality and detail in every print.
For more detailed information, please go to the PRINT Image Matching
website http://www.printimagematching.com.
