Photography Terms and Definitions
Terms
Definitions
Auto Focus (AF)
Auto focus refers to a cameras’ ability to adjust its configuration in order
to focus properly on a subject regardless of whether it is near or far from
the camera. Auto focus lenses generally provide vastly superior image
quality than do their fixed focus cousins since they do not have to rely on
their depth of field. Also known as: “AF”, “auto-focus”.
White Balance
The adjustment of electronic still picture color channel gains or image
processing so that radiation with relative spectral power distribution equal
to that of the scene illumination source is rendered as a visual neutral.
Auto White Balance
(AWB)
An algorithm in the camera that compensates for different kinds of lighting
and adjusts for the best image quality. Many people just leave the camera
set to auto white balance all of the time.
Digital Print Order
Format (DPOF)
A standardized ASCII file created in a digital camera and stored on
removable media along with the image files that indicate how many copies
of which images should be printed. It also allows index prints, cropping,
and text overlays to be specified.
Exif/JPEG
A compressed file format for digital cameras in which the images are
compressed using the baseline JPEG standard, described in ISO 12234-2,
and metadata and thumbnail images are stored using TIFF tags within an
application segment at the beginning of the JPEG file.
JPEG
Joint Photographic Experts Group. An image compression method
defined in ISO/IEC 10918-1.
Exposure Value
A numerical value that is inversely proportional to the exposure provided
to an image sensor to obtain an image. Images obtained from a camera
using a range of exposure index values will normally provide a range of
image quality levels.
ISO Speed
A numerical value calculated from the exposure provided at the focal
plane of an electronic camera to produce specified camera output signal
characteristics using the methods described in the referenced standard.
The ISO speed should correlate with the highest exposure index value
that provides peak image quality for normal scenes.
USB
Universal serial bus, a digital interface for connecting up to 64 devices in
a tiered-star topology. See http://www.usb.org.

1. Getting to Know Your Camera
1.1 Overview
The camera is equipped a 5 Mega Pixel sensor that can take H.264 format videos. The H.264 technology
allows for extended video recording with less memory. High quality images up to 16 mega-pixels can
also be delivered smoothly. With a color LCD monitor, you can view and examine the videos and photos
easily.
The 3” LCD touch panel is an ideal platform for you to operate your camera. The menu options are
accessible with your finger tip. With the touch panel, you can select the options directly and quickly.
The camera also features video recording at an HD resolution of 1920x1080. You can also connect it to
an HDTV via an HDMI cable, and easily playback the recorded high-definition videos on the wide screen
HDTV.
Moreover, the camera has an advanced uploading feature. With the exclusive built-in Internet Direct
application, you can upload the videos captured by the camera to web sites more effortlessly .
ISO sensitivity and color balance can either be adjusted automatically or changed manually. A 16x digital
zoom helps you control the videos and photos you take.
The varied effect options, such as Time Lapse and Slow Motion, make recording more fun.
The built-in memory allows you to take photos and to record videos without a memory card. The memory
card slot allows users to increase the storage capacity.
Note
• Part of the built-in memory is used for the camera’s Firmware code and software.
• Install the bundled software application on the CD, ArcSoft MediaImpression, for viewing the
videos correctly on a PC.

9. Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting
1.If the LCD preview is not clear while shooting, how can the focus be adjusted?
Try to switch between Macro and Normal Mode.
2.The files on the memory card do not display smoothly when the LCD shows the “!”
marking.
The “!” means the SD card is low speed or contains incompatible content inside. The way to resolve
this condition is to format SD card by the camera instead of a PC (Please refer to the detailed Format
instruction in User's Manual-Section 5).
Or upgrade to a higher speed performance SD/SDHC/SDXC card to a high speed one.
3.Why do some of my indoor photos look blurry and dark?
The camera extends photo exposure time under low light/ indoor condition. Keep the camera (and
the target subject) steady for several seconds when taking photos. The shutter will sound when
photo is being taken.
4.How do I charge battery?
The quickest and preferred method is to use the supplied AC adaptor with the USB cable (See page
8 in this manual for details). You can use the supplied UB cable with a PC or laptop to recharge as
well. Please note that if you use a laptop, please make sure it is plugged into an AC source so that
it’s battery is not depleted.
The camera must be turned OFF. A blinking light
confirms charging, and the light
becomes constant when the charging has been completed. In AC charging Mode, the light will
turn itself off automatically after 3~5 minutes The full charge time is about 3 to 4 hours. (Actual
charging time may vary depending on the condition of the battery.)
5.After connecting the USB cable to the computer, ……
a.The disk [DV] indicates the internal memory of the camera. (The disk label may be different
according to different model and PC OS.)
b.[Removable Disk] indicates the external memory. (Under the circumstances of within the SD/
SDHC/SDXC card in the camera)
