Installing a Secure Digital (SD) memory card
Your Philips PocketCam camera is capable of storing photos on Secure Digital (SD) memory
cards.
When installing an SD card, it may be necessary to format the card before using it the first time,
especially when the card has been used in devices other than your camera. For this see ‘Playback
mode menu’.The Philips PocketCam comes with a dummy SD card in order to prevent dust,
dirt, or other particles from entering the SD card slot. Always keep either the dummy SD card or
a real SD card in the slot in order to protect the slot.

Changing resolution
The Philips PocketCam offers three choices in resolution: Large (high resolution), Medium and
Small (low resolution). Large (high) resolution is 2048 x 1536 pixels, Medium resolution is
1600 x 1200 pixels, and Small (low) resolution is 800 x 600 pixels.The higher resolution
setting (Large) allows for a photo to be printed as large as 8 x 10 inches, but requires more
memory to store the photo.The lower resolution setting (Small) allows for more images to
be stored, but print quality is lower. It is best suited for images to be e-mailed or posted on a
website.

9. Maintenance
Cleaning the camera
•
•
•
Use a blower brush to remove dust from the lens, display or viewfinder, and then wipe
lightly with a soft, dry cloth. Leaving the lens extended for long periods can allow dust to
enter the camera’s viewfinder. However, this does not affect the image.
Do not scratch hard objects against the lens, display or viewfinder as these surfaces are
easily damaged.
Clean the body of the camera with a soft, dry, cloth. Do not use volatile substances such
as thinners, benzine or insecticide, as these may react with the camera body finish and
cause deformation or remove the coating.
