• Using Your Batteries
Our laboratory testing has shown that our digital camera models comply
with industry standard battery consumption levels (Camera & Imaging
Products Association commonly known as CIPA).
All digital cameras are high drain products. For the best performance and
prolonged battery life, we recommend the use of high capacity batteries
designed for such applications.
Here are some helpful hints to extend battery life considerably by limiting
the following activities:
• Reviewing the pictures on the LCD Screen
• Using the optical viewfinder (if your camera has one) to frame the
subject when taking pictures
• Excessive use of the flash
• Remove batteries from your camera when not in use to prevent battery
leakage.
WARNING!
• Batteries should be replaced by an adult.
• Use recommended or equivalent type of batteries only.
• Insert the batteries in the correct orientation.
• Remove exhausted batteries from the camera immediately.
• Do not short the supply terminals.
• Please dispose of the batteries properly.
• Do not touch the lens when the camera hangs due to low battery.
Please replace the batteries and power on the camera.
These instructions should be retained for future reference.
Polaroid i835 Digital Camera User Guide
www.polaroid.com
• Checking the Battery Level
Check the battery power level before taking pictures.
1. Turn on the camera.
2. Check the battery power level that appears on the LCD screen.
Battery power is full.
Battery power is adequate.
Battery power is low.
Batter power is exhausted. Please
replace the battery.
• Turning the Camera On and Off
1. Press the
(POWER) button until the
Power on LED screen turns on.
2. Press the
(POWER) button again to turn
the power off.

• 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
makes better quality and occupies more memory space. Smaller size and
normal quality pictures are easier to email while larger size and fine quality
pictures are better for printing.

With this camera, you should always select images by viewing them on

7 Using the SD (Secure Digital) Card
• Using the SD Card
Your camera comes with built-in flash memory for storing pictures and
video clips. You can expand the memory by using a Polaroid SD card (sold
separately) (up to 4GB). The camera senses whether a memory card is
inserted, and automatically saves pictures and video clips accordingly.
Note that you cannot save pictures or video clips to the built-in flash
memory while a memory card is installed in the camera. See pages 106 to
107 for storage capacities.
Memory card precautions:
1. Use only a compatible SD memory card with this camera preferably a
Polaroid SD card.
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 formatting it. However, we recommend that you always
take along with more than one memory card whenever using the
camera far away from your home or office.
4. We recommend that you format a memory card when using it for the
first time, 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 protection switch that you can use to
protect files from accidental deletion. However, you must remove the write
protection whenever you want to record new files onto it, format it, or delete
its files.
• Files contained in the SD card recorded by other cameras may conflict with
the i835 camera, and valuable data in your existing SD card may be distorted
or lost when the card is inserted in the i835 camera. We strongly recommend
the user to use a new or formatted Polaroid (not included) SD card for the
i835 camera. The manufacturer is not liable for losing or corrupting any
valuable data or files in your SD card due to improper operation.
Inserting a SD card
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Open the Battery/SD card door by pushing it outwards as illustrated.
3. Insert the SD card and ensure the card is inserted the correct position
as illustrated.
4. Close the Battery/SD card door by pressing it downwards and slide it
back to lock.

IMPORTANT!
• Never insert any other object into the camera’s SD card slot. Doing so results
in the risk of damage to the camera and card.
• Should water or any foreign objects ever get into the card slot, immediately
turn off the camera, remove the battery or disconnect the AC adapter, and
contact your dealer or the nearest service provider.
• Never remove a card from the camera while the camera is powered on.
Doing so can cause the picture or video recording operation to fail, and even
damage the memory card.
