TRANSFERRING IMAGES TO A PC
 Note: When you put the memory card in your PC’s
card reader, you can access your images directly.
You do not need to connect the camera.
 Note: Some older card readers may not be able to
read the included SD card. If you experience this
problem, contact the manufacturer of your card
reader for an updated firmware or driver.
This section explains how to connect your digital camera to a
PC. Remember to install your image processing software
first. Do not connect the camera until installation is successfully completed.
SOFTWARE INSTALLATION
 Note: Should your operating system be configured in
such a way that software and drivers cannot be installed unless signed (released by Microsoft), then a
relevant dialog box will appear. Though exact wording
may differ depending on your operating system (e.g.
“the driver to be installed ... has not passed the test”)
this does not mean that the driver is defective, but indicates only the absence of the Microsoft signature.
You may ignore this message. Click Next to install
the driver.
Only PCs running Windows® 98SE require installation of the
driver. Windows® ME, 2000, and XP support the camera without the driver included on the CD-ROM.
50
 Caution: Important files may be overwritten and
altered during the installation of programs or drivers. Make a backup copy of your hard disk before
installation in case of problems with the installation,
or if you should need to access the original files.
INSTALLING THE CAMERA SOFTWARE
Following is a description of a typical software installation.
Once you insert the CD-ROM, the installation menu launches
automatically.
Note: If the installation menu does not appear automatically,
the “Autorun” function has likely been deactivated. Read the
respective chapter in the Windows Help file on how to activate this function.
An example of manual installation (without the autorun function) is as follows:
1. Open the “Start” menu and select “Run.”
2. Enter the letter of the CD-ROM drive containing the installation disk, followed by a colon and the program
name SETUP. (Example D:SETUP, where “D” is the
CD-ROM drive on your PC)
3. Click on “OK.”
4. Follow the program instructions.
CONNECTING THE DIGITAL CAMERA TO A PC
 If you have not already done so, you must first
install the driver software as described above if you
are using Windows® 98SE.

in My Computer.
If you want to edit the image with special software, first copy
the image to your hard drive and then open the copied image
using your image editing software.

TIPS AND TRICKS
USING CAMERA BATTERIES AND
RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES
•
•
•
•
Battery power is reduced at low working temperatures.
For cold environments we recommend keeping a stock
of new batteries and storing them in a warm place.
We recommend NiMH rechargeable batteries since
their capacity decreases at a slower rate. Even in cold
environments these batteries will return to normal capacity after warming.
Remove the batteries from the camera if you do not
expect to use the camera for longer periods of time.
Leaking batteries may damage the battery compartment and your camera.
Caution! Batteries can heat up when the camera is in
use. Be careful when removing or changing batteries.
Turn the camera off and wait a few minutes until the
batteries have sufficiently cooled.
USING THE MEMORY CARD
The following scenarios may increase the risk of data loss or
damage to your camera’s memory card:
• Incorrect use of the card.
• Electrostatic discharges or interference fields in the
vicinity of the card. Keep the card away from fields of
electrical disturbance and static charges.
• Removal of the card or interruption of power supply while
the camera is accessing the card (reading, deleting).
• Non-use of the card over long period of time. Data
stored on the MMC/SD™ card begin to break down after a certain time. Data on cards that are left unused
for long periods of time may be irretrievable.
TIPS AND TRICKS
53
•
•
Formatting the card wipes out all data irreversibly.
The storage capacity of the MMC/SD™ card is reduced
on extreme use. Purchase a new card if this occurs.
•
•
Bending the card, or exposing the card to hard impact.
Touching the card’s electrical contacts with your fingers or with a metal object.
Exposing the card to moisture, heat, dust, or direct
sunlight.
Exposing the card to magnets (e.g., loudspeaker boxes).
Not storing the card in its protective sleeve.
•
•
•
CARE OF THE LCD DISPLAY
•
•
•
•
Do not subject the surface of the LCD monitor to any
pressure as this may result in permanent damage.
The LCD monitor display may temporarily darken at
low temperatures. The normal display returns once
the camera warms up.
If the LCD monitor surface is dirty, first blow the dust
and sand away then wipe with a soft, dry, clean cloth.
The monitor must be replaced if the LCD monitor is
constantly flickering or simply no longer functions.
USING THE DIGITAL CAMERA
•
•
•
•
•
•
54
The camera is sensitive to shock and must be handled
with utmost care.
Turn the camera off and remove the batteries when in transit.
The camera is not watertight.
Inserting and removing batteries or memory cards
with wet hands can cause damage.
Careless use of the camera on the beach and near
water may result in damage to the camera.
Do not leave the camera in direct sunlight for long periods of time. Never point the lens directly towards
the sun as this may damage the CCD sensor.
