lighting.
4. Pressing the Shutter button

Internet Mode
The Internet Mode allows you to record videos with predefined video settings for easy upload to the Internet
website.
The Internet supports two file upload standards:
• Single File Uploader. The maximum video file size is up to 100 MB.
• Internet Uploader. The maximum video file size is up to 1 GB.
Most uploaded video length ranges within 5 minutes.
Therefore when you record using the YouTube mode, the following standards are followed:
• Recorded videos are set to Internet standard resolution of 640 X 480.
• Recording automatically stops when the file reaches 100 MB.
• To record a YouTube video, select from the Movie size function. Available recording time for a YouTube video is up
to 10 minutes.
Using the Stabilizer Feature
The Stabilizer feature is for Photo taking only. This feature is designed to help reduce the blurring effects on photos
caused by slight camera movement. It is important to note that this feature cannot compensate for all movement
and lighting situations and that in many cases may slow the camera’s ability to auto focus.
How does it work? It works according to the luminance of the target object. This function uses special image data
processing to optimise the high sensitivity of CCD sensor (also known as the digital film). High sensitivity allows the
use of faster shutter speeds compared to the default mode, so it may reduce blurring caused by camera movement.
20
To activate Stabilizer
• Press the Stabilizer button
located on the top of
the camera to enable/disable stabilizer.
If Stabilizer is enabled, the stabilizer icon is displayed on the LCD
monitor and the ISO setting is automatically set to Auto. See
“Setting ISO” on page 39 for more details.
Setting the Zoom Control
Using a combination of 4 times optical zoom and 5 times digital zoom permits zoom photography at up to 20 times
magnification. While the digital zoom can be a useful feature, the more an image is enlarged (zoomed), the more
pixelated (grainier) the image may appear. Please refer to “Setting the Digital Zoom” on page 44 on how to setup
digital zoom.

AUTO
The flash fires automatically whenever the camera determines extra lighting is needed.
This is the default mode of the camera.
Red-eye
reduction
The flash fires twice to help reduce the red-eye effect. The first flash strobe is
designed to force the iris of the subject to reduce in size to compensate for the bright
light, thus reducing the reflection (red eye effect) of the Eye retina. The second strobe
is when the photo is taken.
Forced on
The flash fires whenever you press the Shutter button
regardless of
lighting conditions. This may be useful in some bright backlight situations.
Slow sync
This would be used to capture a dimly lit background while keeping the foreground
(subject) properly lighted. This flash mode forces the camera to use a slower shutter
speed in combination with the flash. The flash fires briefly to light the foreground
(subject) while capturing ambient light to reveal more detail in the background. If
Slow Sync flash is not used, the background may appear black or underexposed.
Forced off
The flash is turned off and will not fire regardless of the lighting situation. In low light
situations, the use of a tripod may be required to reduce photo blurring.
•Flash function is only available in shooting still images but not available in Burst
and AEB modes.
•Do not charge the flash while pressing the zoom button. Charge the flash after
releasing the zoom button if necessary.

Normal
With normal focus, the focus range starts from 0.4m (about 16 inches) to near infinity.
When the camera is set to Normal mode, there is no icon displayed on the screen.
Macro
This mode is designed for close-up photography. This mode should be used for
subjects closer that are 0.4 m (or 16 inches) from the lens. If Macro is enabled, the
camera can capture the detail and sharpness of a very close subject by fixed focus.
Pan Focus
This mode is designed to accurately focus on a desired subject so that closer and
further objects are out of focus. For example, the camera might focus on a nearby
tree, and the distant trees and mountains are blurry, as well as an even closer object
such as a flower.
Infinity
When Infinity is set, the camera focuses on distant objects. This may be good to use
when taking landscape photos.

Icon
Item
Description
Auto
The simplest and usually safest way to shoot basic photos. Settings are
automatically adjusted by the camera. Each time the camera is Powered
off then on, this mode will be selected by default. This is recommended for
novice photographers.
Video
This mode is used to record video clips.
Program
The camera automatically adjusts suitable shooting settings like shutter
speed and aperture values. However, this mode allows for manual
adjustments to EV, Auto White Balance, ISO(gain), Metering, and Color
effects.
Intelligent
Scene
The camera detects the shooting conditions and automatically switches to
the appropriate scene mode.
Portrait
This scene mode will attempt to isolate the subject by opening a wide
aperture to blur the background and providing little depth of field.
The subject will stand out because the background is blurry and the subject
is in focus.
Landscape
This feature is used to emphasize wide distant scenic views.
Sunset
This feature enhances the red hue for recording dramatic sunrise or sunset
images.
Backlight
This feature is best used to capture photos with a strong backlight. For
example, this mode will lighten the exposure to make the face of the person
in the foreground to look normal instead of dark while maintaining the clarity
and brightness of the background details.
Kids
This feature forces the camera to select settings that will be optimal for
moving kids. Red eye reduction and skin tone enhancement are also a
benefit of using this mode.
Night Scene
This feature is used to taking photos with night scenery background. Camera
settings will be adjusted to capture brighter and more vivid night shots. For
best results and reduced image blurring, the use of a tripod for this mode is
strongly recommended.
Fireworks
This feature slows shutter speed to capture the full burst of fireworks.
Another interesting use would be to take photos of night traffic. This
will produce artistic head and tail light stretch effects For best results
and reduced image blurring, the use of a tripod for this mode is strongly
recommended.
Snow
This scene mode is best used when you’re shooting against a bright
background, such as snow or sand. This will enable the camera to focus on
the subject instead of the background to determine the proper exposure and
AWB settings for optimal results. If not selected, the subject may be too
dark and the background “washed out”.
This scene mode will continue to capture images as long as the Shutter

best match typical indoor wedding/party conditions.
Candlelight
This feature is used to capture warm candle light effects.
28
Night Portrait
This scene mode uses the flash and will leave the shutter open longer to get
more ambient light from the background. This will help reduce typical flash
pictures where the subject does not have a black/dark background. Ideally,
this will produce photos that have more detail in the background. For best
results and reduced image blurring, the use of a tripod for this mode is
strongly recommended.
Soft Skin
This scene mode will set red-eye flash and other camera parameters to
enhance/soften tones that produce smoother younger looking skin as well
ad reduce the appearance of blemishes.
Food
This scene mode is designed to capture pictures of food in vivid colors.
The Camera is set to macro mode focus and other parameters to increase
saturation for enticing food images.
Building
This feature enhances the edges of captured images that make it ideal to
highlight details of buildings.
Text
This feature enhances the black and white contrast normally used when
capturing text images. Typically, normal photos of documents may look grey
in tone. This mode will optimise settings for more color accurate results.
Foliage
This feature boosts the saturation of greens to give a rich color to foliage
and lawns.
Auction
This feature combines up to 4 shots into a single photo and provides 4
patterns to select for usage of auction. It also selects resolution settings

Appendix
About Folder and File Names
Your camera automatically creates specific directory of folder in the internal memory cards to organize captured
images, videos and audio files.
File Naming
File names begin with “HPIM” and followed by a 4-digit number that increases in sequence. File numbering starts
from 0001 when a new folder is created.
If the highest folder number is 999 and the highest file number exceeds 9999, the camera will display the warning
message “Folder cannot be created.” When this happens, try one of the following ways:
• Reset the file number. See “Setting File Numbering” on page 65.
• Plug in a new memory card.
Do not change the folder and file names in the memory card using your PC. It may
be unable to playback the data using the camera.
