and serious damage to the equipment. Use only with a stable cart,
stand, bracket, or table.
Cleaning — Unplug the camera from its AC battery charger/adapter
and from a computer. Be certain the camera off. Using a damp cloth,
clean only the outside cabinet and the liquid crystal display (LCD) on
the KODAK camera back. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol
cleaners on the outside of the equipment. (Refer to Chapter 7 for
directions on cleaning the imager in the camera back.)
Dust — If you operate the camera in environments with excessive
dust levels, dust may accumulate on the imager in the camera back.
(Refer to Chapter 7 for directions on cleaning the imager in the camera back.)
CAUTION: Water and Moisture — Do not use the AC battery
charger/adapter near water — for example, near a sink, or in a wet
room or basement. Do not use the equipment in heavy rain and do
not immerse the equipment in water or other liquids.
Object or Liquid Entry — Never push foreign objects of any kind into
the equipment openings. The objects could touch dangerous voltage
points or short out parts and cause a fire or electric shock. Never spill
liquid of any kind on the equipment.
Attachments — Do not use attachments that are not recommended.
The use of such attachments may cause hazards and serious damage
to the equipment.
Power Sources — You should operate the equipment only from the
type of power source indicated on the name plate of the AC battery
charger/adapter. If you are not sure of the type of AC power that will
be used, consult a dealer or local power company.
Overloading — Do not overload power outlets and extension cords;
this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.
Cables — Do not use cables other than those supplied with the
camera, except that an additional cable is required if you will use the
xi

camera as the only external device attached to a PowerBook computer (refer to Chapter 4). Use only the SCSI cables supplied with the
camera to attach the camera or other peripherals to the computer. If
you use other cables, you may violate FCC emission requirements
and could corrupt data on the hard disk.
Power-Cord Protection — Route power-supply, and other cords, so
that you are not likely to walk on them or pinch them with items
placed on or against them; pay particular attention to cords at plugs,
receptacles, and the point where they leave the equipment.
Grounding — The AC battery charger/adapter is equipped with a
three-wire grounding-type plug with a third (grounding) pin. The
three-wire plug will fit into a grounding-type power outlet. This is a
safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug into the outlet,
contact an electrician to replace the obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the
safety purpose of the grounding-type plug.
Lightning — For added protection for the equipment during a lightning storm, or any time when you will leave the equipment unattended and unused for long periods of time, unplug the AC battery
charger/adapter from the power outlet and disconnect the camera
from the computer. This will protect the equipment from damage
caused by lightning or power-line surges.
Temperature, Humidity, Condensation — We do not recommend
operating the equipment outside the operating temperature or humidity ranges as indicated in the Specifications appendix. If condensation
occurs, added time may be required to read from or write to a
PCMCIA card. Condensation may be present if the camera system
and/or PCMCIA card(s) are moved from a relatively cold environment
(like an air conditioned hotel room), into a warm, humid environment. We recommend that you allow sufficient time for the camera
system and/or PCMCIA cards to normalize within the specified
environmental ranges before operation. (Third-party, optional
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .



PCMCIA cards may have more restrictive operating temperature and
humidity ranges. Refer to the specifications for the cards you use.)
PCMCIA cards — PCMCIA cards (not supplied with the camera
system) are fragile devices that can be damaged if not treated with
care. Refer to the documentation accompanying any card(s) you
obtain to ensure that you are handling the card as specified in that
documentation, and that you are using the card within its operating
ranges for temperature, humidity, condensation, and so on.
Servicing — Do not attempt to service the equipment yourself.
Opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or
other hazards. Never open the KODAK camera back. (Refer to Chapter 7 for directions on separating the KODAK camera back from the
Canon EOS-1 N camera to clean a dirty imager.)
Damage Requiring Service — Unplug the equipment from the wall
outlet and computer, and refer all servicing to the manufacturer under
the following conditions:
- When any cord or plug is damaged (send cord only).
- If liquid has been spilled or if objects have fallen in the equipment.
- If the equipment has been exposed to rain or water.
- If the equipment does not operate normally according to the
operating instructions.
- If the equipment has been dropped or the housing has been
damaged.
- When the equipment exhibits a distinct change in performance.
Disconnecting Parts — Do not separate the KODAK camera back
from the Canon EOS-1 N camera. The system is shipped as a single
unit; do not disconnect the parts (except as described in Chapter 7 for
cleaning a dirty imager). Do not open or attempt to open the camera
back; doing so will void the warranty.
xiii
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
You can connect the camera to a computer with or without a PCMCIA
card in the camera. Once the camera is connected to a computer, you
can insert/remove a PCMCIA card while the camera and computer are
turned on or turned off; however, do not remove a PCMCIA card from
the camera while the red “Card Busy” light on the camera back is
blinking. The blinking indicates that data are being read from or
written to the PCMCIA hard disk. If you do, you may lose the current
image, and may lose all of your images as well.
CAUTION: To prevent fire or shock hazard, use only the recommended
accessories or attachments.
Battery — Important Warnings

xiv
Do not attempt to remove the battery; it is not a customer serviceable
part.
If you will be operating the camera while it is connected to the AC
battery charger/adapter, the camera will be ready for operation almost
immediately. (However, if you are beginning with a dead battery, and
notice unusual behavior such as random characters flashing on the
camera back LCD, you may need to wait for approximately three
minutes while the adapter charges the battery.) If you will be operating the camera without the AC battery charger/adapter, you should
charge the battery for at least two hours before using as described in
Chapter 4.
If the unusual behavior continues for more than five minutes, the
battery may need to be replaced; contact Kodak.

You should operate the equipment only from the type of power source
indicated on the name plate of the AC battery charger/adapter. A line
voltage outside of this range can destroy the AC battery charger/
adapter and/or the camera.
Use only the supplied AC battery charger/adapter; do not plug other
chargers or adapters into the camera.
The AC battery charger/adapter is for indoor use only.
Do not use the supplied AC battery charger/adapter for any purpose
other than for the camera.
Do not plug the AC battery charger/adapter into any equipment other
than the camera.
The rechargeable battery in the KODAK camera back becomes warm
during charging; this is normal operation.
Under normal conditions, charging the battery for at least two hours
provides optimal capacity. However, under very cold or very hot
conditions, charge for at least 30 minutes after the LCD battery
indicator indicates a full charge. Charge the battery as close to the
time the camera will be used as possible. (Waiting in excess of two
days before shooting will result in reduced battery capacity.)
Use the AC battery charger/adapter when connected to a computer if
possible; use without the adapter in this configuration for an extended
time period will drain the battery. Leaving the camera connected to
the AC battery charger/adapter will not maintain a full charge; therefore disconnect before use, then reconnect and charge for two hours
to ensure a full charge. Extended camera metering or focusing reduces
the number of images available from a charge.

IMPORTANT: Do not attempt to remove the battery; it is not a customer serviceable part.
IMPORTANT: The section “Battery Charging for Optimal Capacity” in
Chapter 7 includes important battery information.
The camera incorporates a single, rechargeable nickel hydride battery
that powers both the camera back and the camera; no batteries are
installed in the camera.
The Specifications appendix lists the number of frames you can expect
from a full-charged battery in typical shooting situations.
When the camera will be used in the field, charge the battery as close
to the time it will be used as possible.
You can operate the camera while connected to the supplied AC
battery charger/adapter, or you can recharge the battery with the
adapter and then use the camera in the field without the adapter.
The adapter will run the camera continuously while charging the
battery.
You can leave the camera continually connected to the AC battery
charger/adapter, however, this will not maintain a full charge. Disconnect and then reconnect the charger before use, and charge for two
hours to ensure a full charge.
If you are using the camera in an environment in which a power
outlet is available, we recommend that you operate the camera while
connected to the AC battery charger/adapter as described below.
Refer to Chapter 7 for information on the effect of temperature extremes on battery operation.
 Preparing the Camera and the Computer G 4-3
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Charging the Battery
You should charge the battery for two hours before using the camera for
the first time, and thereafter on a regular basis as needed. Charging the
battery in this way will ensure that you begin shooting with a fully
charged battery, and that you obtain the most images per charge.
Follow these steps to charge the battery.
1. Locate the AC battery charger/adapter and power cord supplied with

Setting the SCSI ID on the Camera
In this section you will set the SCSI identification (ID) number for the
camera. Each SCSI device connected to the same computer must have a
different ID number.
CAUTION: This section assumes that the camera and the computer are not
currently connected. You should never change the SCSI ID on the camera
when it is connected to a computer.
1. Shut down your computer.
2. If SCSI devices other than the camera are connected to your
computer, for example a hard disk, determine their SCSI identification
numbers so that you can select a different number for the camera. If
necessary, refer to the instructions for those devices to determine how
to find their numbers.
NOTE: Since you may connect the camera to different computers, or since
you may change the external devices connected to the computer you
regularly use with the camera, you should ensure that the camera has a
unique SCSI ID each time you connect it to the computer.

7. While “SCSI” still appears on the LCD, you change the current SCSI
ID by pressing the SCSI ID button repeatedly. The ID rotates through
the values 0 to 7, “PC,” and “PP.” Stop when you have the SCSI ID
you want, using the separate information below for Macintosh and
TWAIN (PC).
A camera set to a SCSI ID currently in use by another connected SCSI
device may not respond to the computer; instead, the camera will
flash the SCSI indicator on the camera back LCD. If this occurs, shut
down the computer, disconnect the camera, reset the SCSI ID on the
camera as described in this section, and try again.
Macintosh: Do not use the SCSI values 0 (usually your internal hard disk) or 7
(usually your computer), do not select “PC” or “PP,” and do not use a number
currently assigned to any other connected SCSI device such as a CD-ROM
drive which is usually number 3 if it is an internal drive supplied by Apple
Computer, Inc.
TWAIN (PC): Do not use a number currently assigned to any other connected
SCSI device. Do not assign the number used by your SCSI host adapter.
Consult your SCSI host adapter manual to see if other SCSI IDs should not be
used.
“PC” SETTING FOR IBM LAPTOP CUSTOMERS (not for use with the
Macintosh): Use the “PC” SCSI ID setting only if you will be connecting the
camera to an IBM or compatible laptop computer using a PCMCIA-to-SCSI II
adapter (such as the Adaptec SlimSCSI used with EZ-SCSI 4.0 or the New
Media Bus Toaster), to connect the PCMCIA slot on your laptop (not the
camera) to the SCSI connector on the camera. “PC” sets the SCSI ID of the
camera to 1 and turns on active termination in the camera.
When you finish, take the camera out of “PC” mode, turn off the computer
and camera. If left in “PC” mode, a fully charged battery will be exhausted in
approximately eight hours since the camera can not change to low power
mode when this SCSI setting is active.
“PP” SETTING: The “PP” setting, although it appears, is not currently supported and should not be selected for use with the Kodak driver.

of the supported SCSI host adapter cards. If your PC already has a supported card installed, continue at the next section.
CAUTION: Only trained and qualified technical personnel should perform the
following procedure. You should contact a computer service professional to
configure and install an ASPI host adapter card such as those available from
Adaptec, Inc. running EZ-SCSI 4.0 or later. The installer should read all manufacturers’ instructions for both the computer and the host adapter before installing
the adapter in your computer.
1. Turn off the power to the computer, then to all peripherals.
2. If the termination power setting on your SCSI host adapter is disabled,
change its setting to enable it.
3. Install the SCSI Host Adapter card for your PC according to the
manufacturer’s installation instructions. When installation is complete,
a SCSI2 connector should be available on the back of your PC. The
figures in this chapter are intended to illustrate a typical computer
(Macintosh or PC).

Making the SCSI Connection
The camera is a non-terminated SCSI device that connects to your
Macintosh computer or PC with one of the included SCSI cables. In
normal usage you may connect and disconnect the camera from the
computer on a regular basis; for this reason you may want to position
your computer so that its SCSI connector is readily accessible.
Three sets of instructions follow.
I.
The camera is the sole SCSI device.
II
The camera is used with other SCSI devices.
NOTE: You may need to obtain a SCSI terminator to complete these steps if
other external SCSI devices are connected to your computer. A single 25-pin
SCSI terminator is supplied with the camera.
III. The camera is used with a Macintosh PowerBook or a PC laptop.
Read the section that matches the environment in which you will use the
camera
I. Camera as the Sole SCSI Device
Follow these steps if you will connect the camera as the sole external SCSI
device attached to your computer
1. Turn off the camera and the computer.
IMPORTANT: Later when you connect and disconnect the computer and the
camera on a regular basis, make sure that the computer is off.
2. Place the camera in a convenient position next to your computer.

chapter.
II. Camera Used with Other SCSI Devices
NOTE: If other external SCSI devices are connected to your computer, you may
need to obtain a SCSI terminator to complete these steps.
Follow these steps if one or more external SCSI devices are already
connected to your computer.
Multiple SCSI devices are connected to the computer in a chain. If the
camera is one of multiple SCSI devices connected to your computer, it
must be connected as the last device in the chain of SCSI devices since it
only includes one SCSI connector.
The total cable length connecting all devices must not exceed 15 feet (4.6
meters).
You will need to determine if the connected SCSI devices are terminated
or not. To do so, first look for an external SCSI terminator on the devices.
Because some devices contain internal terminators, also check the instructions for your devices to determine if they are terminated internally,
and if they are whether that termination is currently active.
We provide two sets of instructions. Follow the first set (A) if none of the
connected devices are terminated or if one of the devices is terminated
externally. Follow the second set (B) if one of the devices — it should be
the last device in the chain — is terminated internally.

A. Follow these steps if none of the connected
devices are terminated or if one of the devices
is terminated externally.
1. Turn off the computer, and all connected SCSI devices.
IMPORTANT: Later, when you connect and disconnect the computer and the
camera on a regular basis, make sure that all devices are off.
2. Place the camera in a convenient position next to the last device in
the SCSI chain of devices connected to your computer.
3. Connect the AC battery charger/adapter to the camera as described
earlier in this chapter. Although this step is optional, we recommend it
whenever the camera is connected to a computer.
4. When you have completed part A or part B of this step, the last device
in the chain should have a cable (with no terminator) connected to
one of its SCSI connector, and the other connector should be empty.

B. PC (for TWAIN driver)
The camera can be used with an IBM or compatible laptop computer if
you use a PCMCIA-to-SCSI II adapter (such as the Adaptec SlimSCSI used
with EZ-SCSI 4.0 or the New Media Bus Toaster). These adapters include
a PCMCIA card that plugs into the PCMCIA slot in your laptop (not in the
camera). A cable connects this card to the SCSI connector on the camera,
using an adapter if needed at the camera end of the cable. None of this
equipment is provided with the camera.
In this configuration set the SCSI ID on the camera to “PC;” this sets the
camera SCSI ID to 1 and turns on active termination in the camera.
CAUTION: When you finish with the camera in “PC” mode, turn off the computer and camera. If left in “PC” mode, a fully charged battery will be exhausted
in approximately eight hours since the camera can not change to low power
mode when this SCSI setting is active.

Inserting and Removing a PCMCIA
Card
This section describes how to insert and remove a PCMCIA card. PCMCIA
cards are not supplied with the camera, but are available as optional
equipment. Refer to Chapter 1 and to the read-me files supplied with the
software for additional information on supported cards.
A PCMCIA card can be inserted or removed at any time, except when the
red “Card Busy” light on the camera back is blinking. You can insert or
remove a card while in the field, while connected to the AC battery
charger adapter, while connected to a computer, and/or while the camera
is on or off.
IMPORTANT: When the red Card Busy light is blinking, data is being read from
or written to the PCMCIA card, for example just after you take a picture, or later
when you move data from the camera to a computer. If the card is removed while
the light is blinking, you may lose the current image, and may lose other images
as well.
Inserting a PCMCIA Card
Follow these steps to insert a PCMCIA card. (If a card is currently installed, there is no need to follow these steps now, although if you are
unfamiliar with the use of this type of card you may wish first to remove
the card as described in the next section, and then to return here to
reinstall the card.)

Installing the KODAK Driver
In this section you will install the special software driver provided with
the camera. Then you can use the driver to ensure that the camera has the
latest firmware (camera control programming), and to format a PCMCIA
card(s). Once the software is installed, you can use it regularly to move
images and sound files from the camera to your computer by acquiring
them while running your copy of Adobe Photoshop (or other supported
software on a PC), as described in Chapters 6 and 8.
Installing the software is a onetime action; you complete these steps once,
and do not repeat them each time you want to acquire images. The
camera can remain connected to the AC battery charger/adapter and the
computer while you complete these steps.
1. If your computer is not on, turn it on now
2. Locate the Kodak-supplied driver diskettes for the computer system
you will use — either Macintosh or PC.
3. Place the first diskette into the internal drive of your computer.
4. Read the contents of the read-me file — it contains the latest information on the camera and software driver.
5. Follow the instructions below to install the driver for either a
Macintosh computer or PC.
Macintosh: Double-click on the installer icon and follow the directions you find there for installing the camera software.
PC:
A. Choose RUN from START (or the FILE menu if appropriate).
B. Type A:\SETUP (type B:\SETUP if the diskette is in drive B) in the
command line.

NOTES ON TWAIN FOR THE PC: TWAIN is a set of written specifications
developed by a consortium of vendors, that when implemented in software
allows you to acquire data from a peripheral (such as a digital camera or film
scanner) directly into your software application (such as image-editing
software) without leaving the application. Software that incorporates the
specifications is called “TWAIN-compliant.” TWAIN-compliant software
applications should be able to obtain image data from a TWAIN-compliant
source of data, such as the KODAK Driver described in this chapter.
You can install and use the TWAIN-compliant driver for use with ASPI
(Advanced SCSI Programming Interface) host adapter card such as those
available from Adaptec, Inc. running EZ-SCSI 4.0 or later.
This KODAK Driver is intended for use with applications that are ASPI
compliant for Windows, and not for use with applications that are ASPI
compliant for other operating platforms.
With an ASPI compliant SCSI host adapter card, you must install the Windows ASPI files that accompany it. The KODAK Driver for use with ASPI
compliant host adapter cards will not work properly unless these files have
been installed.
The process described in this section automatically:

Creates a subdirectory named “TWAIN” in the Windows directory. (If
you have other TWAIN-compliant devices this subdirectory may already
exist; if so, a new one is not created.)

Creates (if one does not already exist), a “DCSxxx” subdirectory within
the “TWAIN” directory to hold files for the camera.

Places a set of files within the “DCSxxx” subdirectory.

Overwrites any existing DCS drivers already in the directory. This version
of the driver processes images for other Kodak professional cameras
(except for the DCS 100 and 200).

Accessing the Camera from the
Driver
Repeat the steps below each time you want to access the KODAK Driver
for Adobe Photoshop software or for supported TWAIN-compliant PC
applications.
1. If the camera and your computer are not connected, turn both off and
connect them now by following the directions in “Making the SCSI
Connection” earlier in this chapter.
2. Connect the AC battery charger/adapter to the camera as described
earlier in this chapter. Although this step is optional, we recommend it
whenever the camera is connected to a computer.
3. If your computer is on, turn it off.
4. Turn on the computer.
NOTES: The camera is always on when it is connected to a computer that is
on or when the adapter is connected to the camera, even if the power switch
is set to off (O).
Windows 95 users: The first time you use the camera with your PC, choose
“don’t install” when presented with choices from the installation wizard.
5. Run Adobe Photoshop. (The examples throughout this manual use
Photoshop — available for both the Macintosh and PC platforms.)
NOTE: You should ensure that the gamma for your monitor is calibrated properly
per instructions accompanying Adobe Photoshop; if you do not, images may be
consistently too light or too dark.
Special Instructions for TWAIN-compliant
Software
All TWAIN-compliant software does not provide access to TWAIN drivers
in the same way. As a result, for demonstration purposes this section
 Preparing the Camera and the Computer G 4-35
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
provides one example using the KODAK Driver with Adobe Photoshop.
If you use other supported software, refer to its documentation to determine if it is TWAIN-compliant, and if it is, how it provides access to
TWAIN drivers.
As you use a variety of TWAIN-compliant software, it may be helpful to
know how the TWAIN specifications expect applications to perform. The
specifications provide for a consistent software interface by encouraging
software developers to include two specific commands — SELECT SOURCE
and ACQUIRE — on the FILE menu. The specification intends that users
should first choose SELECT SOURCE which should display a list of TWAINcompliant device drivers installed on the system. After the user selects a
driver from the list, he/she should be returned to the application. The user
should then choose ACQUIRE which should open access to the device and
allow the user to obtain image data.
IMPORTANT: Some image editing software takes all available RAM by default at
start-up. The TWAIN driver will not work if this occurs. To avoid the problem, set
the memory preference for your application (often found on the FILE menu) so that
there is at least one megabyte of free RAM.
Once you have installed the TWAIN driver as described earlier in this
chapter, and are running Photoshop, you access the driver by following
these steps.
1. Choose SELECT TWAIN SOURCE on the IMPORT submenu on the Adobe
Photoshop FILE menu; the SELECT SOURCE dialog box appears. (For
earlier supported versions of Photoshop choose SELECT TWAIN SOURCE
on the ACQUIRE submenu on the Adobe Photoshop FILE menu.)
2. Click the name of the camera driver.
3. Click SELECT; you are returned to Photoshop.
NOTE: The choice is maintained in a preference file for the TWAIN-compliant driver; you do not need to repeat steps 1 through 3 each time you use the
driver.

Updating Camera Firmware
The camera incorporates nonvolatile memory that contains controls —
called firmware — for most features of the camera. You can update that
firmware yourself, which means you can keep the camera up-to-date as
changes are made to the firmware. (Refer to the appendix “Updating Your
KODAK Software Driver,” for additional information.) You can also
perform some troubleshooting without sending the camera to a service
center, as described in the camera troubleshooting section of this manual.
By following the steps below to update camera firmware the first time you
use the driver, you will ensure that the camera contains the most current
version of the firmware. You do not need to update camera firmware each
time you use the driver.
To complete these steps, the camera must be connected to your computer
as described earlier in this chapter. We also assume that Adobe
Photoshop (or other supported TWAIN-compliant application on a PC) is
currently running on your computer, and that you have accessed the
driver image window by choosing the driver as described earlier in this

Readying the EOS•DCS Camera
1. If a formatted PCMCIA card is not in the camera, insert one now.
NOTE: Refer to Chapter 4 for information on formatting, inserting, and
removing PCMCIA cards. If the camera back LCD shows “E6” the card has not
been formatted; you must format it before you can continue.

2. If one is not connected, attach your lens to the camera. (A lens is not
supplied with the camera.)
3. Select either step A or B below depending on the environment in
which you will use the camera.
A. Indoors. Connect the camera to the AC battery charger/adapter as
described in Chapter 4; leave it connected while you operate the
camera. The camera will be ready for operation almost immediately. However, if you are beginning with a dead battery, and
notice unusual behavior, you may need to wait for approximately
three minutes before using the camera.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
NOTE: The AC adapter supplies enough power to support operation of
the camera as well as to continue charging the camera battery. Once
the battery is fully charged, the AC adapter automatically switches to a
slow trickle charge.
B. In the field without the AC battery charger/adapter. Before you go
into the field, you should charge the battery fully as described in
Chapter 4; charging the battery for at least two hours will ensure
the most images per charge.
4. If the camera is connected to the AC battery charger/adapter it is
automatically on. However without the adapter, turn on the camera
by sliding the power switch to on (I); this switch turns on both the
KODAK camera back and the Canon camera body.
NOTE: The main switch on the Canon EOS-1 N is not available. Instead, the
on (I) setting of the EOS•DCS power switch sets the EOS-1 N into the “A”
setting, and the off (O) setting sets it into the “L” setting.
The g ))) setting is also available on the EOS•DCS; to set it, set custom
function 3 to 1. (For the EOS•DCS camera the purpose of custom function 3
has been reprogrammed. It no longer is used to set film speed — a function of
no use with the digital camera.)
5. Notice that the camera back LCD displays several graphics. (To
conserve battery power, if the AC adapter is not connected, the
camera back automatically turns off after approximately five seconds;
to wake it and see these data, lightly press the shutter release button.)
The graphics display:

on the camera back. The EOS•DCS includes a single battery that
powers both the KODAK camera back and the Canon EOS-1 N
camera.
NOTE: The information displayed by the Canon battery check on the Canon
LCD should be ignored; instead use the battery indicator on the camera back
as described in this step to determine the state of the battery.

The main functions of the quick control dial located on the back of the
standard EOS-1 N include exposure compensation settings, flash exposure
compensation settings, and manual exposure adjustments. The following
steps describe how to make settings that accommodate for the absence of
the quick control dial on the EOS•DCS camera.
1. If it is not on, turn on the camera by moving the power switch to
on (I).
2. Exposure compensation. Press and release the exposure compensation (+⁄-) button, then turn the main dial.
3. Flash exposure compensation. Hold down the flash exposure compensation button (metering mode selector) while turning the main

Turning Off the Camera
You turn off the camera by sliding the power switch to off (O).
When the camera is on but not awake (the LCD on the camera back is
off), the drain on the battery is very minimal as the camera system waits in
a sleep state for your next action. Therefore, in normal usage of the
camera during a shooting session with or without the AC battery charger/
adapter, it is not necessary to continually turn the camera off then on
again. In either case, when you are finished with a shooting session, you
should turn off the camera by sliding the power switch to off (O).
Taking Pictures
1. Turn on the camera system, and wake it by lightly pressing the shutter
release button.
2. Frame the scene within the inner rectangle of the focusing screen. The
focusing screen in the camera has been modified and indicates a
reduced view of the scene to match the size of the picture that will be
recorded on the imager. (An illustration of the focusing screen appears
in the Specifications appendix.)
3. Focus.
You can use manual focus, or select any of the focusing points, or let
the camera select the focusing point. (Please refer to information in
the supplied EOS-1 N Instructions for a detailed explanation of
focusing point selection and choice of AF mode.)
Placing the camera into F-11-1 custom function mode as described
earlier in this chapter, alters the process you use for selecting a
focusing point. The new procedure is different from the process you
would follow if the Canon EOS-1 N were being used without the

Frame Counter/Image Reference Number
A separate numbering system is provided by the Canon EOS-1 N camera.
Its frame counter appears on the camera-top LCD. These numbers go up
by one as each picture is taken. After reaching number 39, the image
reference numbers cycle back to 1, 2, etc.
Since the PCMCIA card can store more than 39 images, you probably will
have multiple images on the same PCMCIA card with the same numbers.
To avoid confusion when you — or others — look for specific images on
the PCMCIA card, you can use the record button as described later in this
chapter to annotate images, or when you access images with the driver,
you can look in the image information window to determine the time the
image was taken.
This frame counter displays the number of the picture you have just taken
rather than the number of the next picture you will take.
The frame counter is displayed with each image in the software driver
image window.
Deleting Pictures (Optional)
This section describes how you can delete one or more of the most recent
pictures from the PCMCIA card. This feature is useful if your card is full
and you need to make room for more pictures or if you know that you
have just taken an unsatisfactory picture and want to delete it. (As explained in later chapters, you can also delete pictures with the supplied
software driver.)
1. If it is not on, turn on the camera by sliding the power switch to on (I).
2. Wake the system by lightly pressing the shutter release button.
NOTE: After several seconds of inactivity, the camera system automatically
turns off. As you complete these steps you may need to begin again at this
step.

5. While “DEL” still appears on the LCD, press the DELETE button again.
The most current image — based on image date and time — is
deleted. The red Card Busy light will flicker, indicating that the image
is being deleted from the PCMCIA card.
6. (Optional) Press the DELETE button again — repeatedly if you wish —
to delete another picture(s).
NOTES: As each image is deleted the frames remaining indicator on the camera
back increases by one, indicating that there is now room for one additional image
on the PCMCIA card. The frame counter in the camera-top LCD does not change
as a result of deleting an image.
Only image files are deleted. Sound files (described just below), or other files that
may be on the disk are not deleted.
Use this feature with care since it is possible that you may unknowingly delete the
“wrong” image. This can occur since the camera deletes the image with the most
current date and time. Perhaps you have used the PCMCIA card to take pictures,
and then the camera or PCMCIA card has been used by another photographer. If
you now delete an image, you will delete images from the other photographer
since they have the most current date and time stamp.
If you inadvertently delete images, an emergency procedure provides an opportunity for you to recover images if you do so before taking any additional pictures.
Refer to the explanation of the RECOVER button in Chapter 8.
Additionally, since the PCMCIA card is DOS formatted, if you have an IBM PC or
compatible computer with a PCMCIA card reader and disk utility software with
file recovery features, you may be able to recover image and sound files while
working with that utility software.

and segments of the disk icon bounce up and back, serving as a level
meter (similar to the levels commonly displayed on audio equipment like
tape decks). The bouncing segments provide feedback, a visual indication
that sound is being recorded. The best quality recording should occur
when 4-5 segments are on.
No sound

The camera cannot play the recorded sound; instead, you will need to use
your computer as described in Chapter 7. Chapter 8 contains additional
reference material about recorded sound files.

Operating Differences with Your
Camera
There are differences between normal operation of the Canon EOS-1 N
camera and its operation as part of the EOS•DCS camera. For that reason
we provide a list of the differences, and other considerations, as you begin
to work with the camera system.
NOTE: We assume that you are familiar with the operation of the Canon EOS-1 N
camera; refer to the instruction manual for that camera supplied with the
EOS•DCS camera if needed.





You use the KODAK camera back incorporating a Kodak imager
instead of the Canon EOS-1 N camera back for film. The KODAK
camera back comes attached to the Canon camera body, and should
not be separated except to clean a dirty imager as described in
Chapter 7.
You use no film.
The Canon film camera back can not be used.
You are only allowed to set the ISO to a supported value (refer to the
Specifications appendix); other ISO values outside of the supported
range are not displayed as choices on the Canon LCD.
The amount of “noise” (defects) in an image increases linearly with
time; there is a slow progression of added noise as exposure time
increases. Similarly, a higher ISO results in more noise than a lower
ISO, again in a linear progression. As a result, work with shorter
exposure times and lower ISO settings if possible, and avoid long
exposures. Exposures of more than 4–5 seconds (and occasionally
more than 1⁄2 second) can produce noise in the image.
Refer to the sections “Accommodate for the Absent Quick Control
Dial” and “Choose Other Canon Camera Settings” earlier in this
chapter for additional operating differences.

Lenses behave somewhat differently with the EOS•DCS than with a
conventional EOS 35mm SLR. The exact details appear in the Specifications appendix.
You will not be able to shoot when the camera is in One Shot AF
mode if the camera cannot focus. Choose another focus mode, or take
some other action. (Refer to “3. Difficult Subjects for Autofocus,” in
the supplied EOS-1 N Instructions.)
A frame line indicating the actual picture area has been added to the
pre-installed focusing screen to match the size of the picture that will
be recorded by the CCD imager. Frame the scene within this rectangle.
Custom Functions 1 and 2 (film related) must be set to zero.
Battery check information displayed in the camera top LCD panel
should be ignored; instead, use the camera back LCD battery level
indicator.
The “ON” (I) setting of the EOS•DCS power switch corresponds to the
EOS-1 N “A” setting and the “OFF” (O) setting corresponds to the “L”
setting. Set Custom Function 3-1 to obtain the g ))) setting (for in-focus
beeper).
The camera top LCD frame counter displays a reference number for
the picture you have just taken rather than the next picture you will
take. The reference numbers cycle from 1 to 39 and then repeat.
Check the camera back LCD panel to determine the number of
exposures remaining on the PCMCIA card.
WARNING: Do not connect a non-dedicated electronic flash unit to
the camera (hot shoe or PC terminal) without verification from a
Canon authorized service facility that the flash unit is compatible with
the camera body. Some electronic flash units will damage the camera
body unless they are isolated with an IR slave or a radio slave. Check
with a Canon authorized service facility for compatible equipment.
(Refer to the Chapter 7 for additional information.)

Tutorial — Accessing Camera
Images
This chapter is a tutorial that describes how to use the KODAK driver with
your camera connected to your computer. When the camera is connected
to your computer, you can work with images you have taken earlier with
the camera while not connected to the computer, or you can take new
pictures. Both usages (working with images already on a PCMCIA card
and taking new images) are described in this chapter.
While the camera and the computer are connected, you use the supplied
KODAK software driver to:

card are opened into separate windows in Adobe Photoshop. Once
acquired you can use all Photoshop features to edit the images and
save them in the variety of file formats available in Photoshop.
IMPORTANT: Throughout this chapter we refer to “Photoshop.” This single
reference refers to both the Macintosh and PC versions of Photoshop 4.0, and
also to other supported PC TWAIN-compliant image-editing software.

Rotate, crop, color balance, name, and annotate images.
Copy images from the PCMCIA card in your camera to folders (subdirectories) on your computer hard disk; these images are called
archive images. You can then use the driver to access and manipulate
archive images from a folder just as you can do with images directly
from a PCMCIA card.
Use the software to view unrecorded test shots you make with the
connected camera, and then begin recording images when all settings
meet your requirements for the image.
Format PCMCIA cards and load firmware into the camera.
Delete image and sound files.
Play recorded sound files.
NOTES: This chapter assumes that you have installed the KODAK driver and that
you know how to connect the camera to your computer. Refer to chapter 4 for
information if needed.
The settings you choose while in the driver image window are maintained
automatically from session to session.
You should ensure that the gamma for your monitor is calibrated properly per
instructions accompanying Adobe Photoshop; if it is not, images may be consistently too light or too dark.

Working with Images Already on a
PCMCIA Card
This section is a tutorial on how you might work at the computer with
images you have previously taken with the camera.
NOTE: A later part of this tutorial describes how you can use the camera while
connected to a computer (perhaps in a studio setting) to take new pictures;
however, all features described in this section also apply to the later section, so
we encourage you to work through both sections.
Accessing the Camera from the Driver
Repeat the steps below each time you want to access the camera from
your computer.
1. Follow the steps described in chapter 4 to connect the AC battery
charger/adapter to the camera, to connect the camera to your computer, and to ensure that both are on.
NOTE: Although using the AC battery charger/adapter is optional, we
recommend it whenever the camera is connected to a computer.
2. If one is not present, insert your PCMCIA card with camera images
into the camera.
NOTES: As you work with the camera and the computer, you can insert and
remove cards at any point in the process; however, do not remove a PCMCIA
card while the red Card Busy light on the camera back is blinking. If you do,
you may lose all data on the card.
Use extreme care with PCMCIA cards, as they are easily damaged. If
dropped, you may destroy the PCMCIA card resulting in the loss of all of your
data on the card.
3. Run Adobe Photoshop.
 Accessing Camera Images G 6-3
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
4. Choose KODAK DCS 400/EOS•DCS from the IMPORT submenu of the
Adobe Photoshop 4.0 FILE menu.
NOTES: For earlier supported versions of Photoshop, choose the driver from
the ACQUIRE submenu of the FILE menu.
OPEN from the FILE menu will not acquire images from the camera.
5. Wait as the driver image window appears. If you see a message that
the camera was not found, or that the calibration file cannot be found,
refer to the “Messages” section of chapter 8.
The driver can display images from a variety of supported Kodak
camera types. This means that you can use the same PCMCIA card
with different supported Kodak cameras and view all of the images
with the same driver.

Viewing/Selecting an Image from the Camera
with the Driver
In this section we start by assuming that you want to select a single image
to acquire into Photoshop. You begin your work session by making
choices across the top of the driver image window from left to right.
 Accessing Camera Images G 6-5
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
1. If it is not already selected, choose CAMERA from the SOURCE menu to
work with images from a connected camera.
FOLDER and CHOOSE FOLDER allow you to work with images that you
have previously copied from the camera to a folder (sub-directory) on
your computer hard drive (as explained later in this chapter).
2. If it is not already selected, choose CONTACT SHEET from the VIEW menu.
This displays thumbnails — each a subsample of data from the full
image — of all images from the source (here a PCMCIA card in the
camera). The thumbnails are displayed in the image area of the driver
image window, sorted in order by date and time, with the oldest
image displayed first.
PREVIEW allows you to view larger versions of each image, while TEST
SHOT works with a single, unsaved image which is always the most
recent picture you take with the camera after making this choice.

3. If it is not already selected, choose PHOTO from the ACQUIRE AS menu.
This specifies that, when you acquire images into Photoshop, each
image will be acquired into a separate window.
CONTACT SHEET allows you to acquire a contact sheet of selected
images instead of separate windows each with a single image. As with
non-digital photography, a contact sheet consists of rows of thumbnails.
4. Scroll if needed, using the scroll bar, until the image you want to
acquire appears in the image area.
You can also scroll using the navigation bar in the lower left corner of
the screen as described later in this chapter.
5. If it is difficult to distinguish between the images, choose a larger
image size from the Thumbnail/Preview size menu in the lower right
corner of the window.
6. Click once directly on the image you want to acquire; a color border
appears around the image indicating that you have selected it.

Acquiring One Image from the Camera
You are now ready to acquire an image into Photoshop. Acquiring an
image copies its image data from the PCMCIA card into Photoshop, where
the acquired image opens into a Photoshop window. The original image
is unchanged by the process.
1. With an image selected, click the ACQUIRE button. (You can also
double-click the image as an alternate to the two-step process of
selecting one image and then clicking the ACQUIRE button.)
2. Wait as a progress box appears; you remain in the driver as the image
opens into a Photoshop window behind the driver image window.
(You can cancel acquiring by clicking the CANCEL button in the
progress box.)
3. (Optional) Click the DONE button to close the driver image window.
4. (Optional) Edit the acquired image using Photoshop features. Save the
image to your computer hard disk (you cannot save it back to the
PCMCIA card in the camera) in the file format of your choice.
IMPORTANT: If you have not made any changes to the acquired image while
in Photoshop, and you click the close box of the acquired image window or
choose CLOSE from the Photoshop FILE menu or quit Photoshop, the window
will close without asking you if you want to save it. Therefore, be sure you
save any acquired images you do not want to lose before closing their
windows or quitting Photoshop.

Acquiring Multiple Images or a Contact Sheet
In the previous section you acquired a single image into Photoshop. In
this section you will acquire multiple images (or a contact sheet of those
images) simultaneously.
1. If you closed the driver image window, access it again.
2. Select multiple images using any of the following techniques.




Click one image; then if you are working on a Macintosh, shiftclick (hold down the shift key while you click additional images)
or if you are on a PC, control-click, to add or subtract from the
selected image.
Drag the mouse over adjacent thumbnails.
Click the All button on the driver image window.
Choose ALL from the SELECT pulldown menu.
3. (Optional) Choose CONTACT SHEET from the ACQUIRE AS menu; you are
now set to acquire all selected images as a contact sheet rather than
as single images in separate windows.
NOTE: If you choose CONTACT SHEET from the ACQUIRE AS menu, you see the
Acquire Contact Sheet dialog; click OK to accept the default values, or refer
to chapter 8 for additional details of choices on this dialog.
4. Click the ACQUIRE button. If the setting in step 3 is CONTACT SHEET, one
or more Photoshop windows opens behind the driver, with thumb-
 Accessing Camera Images G 6-9
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
nails of the subset of selected images, as illustrated below after
printing the file; however, if the setting in step 3 is PHOTO, each image
is acquired into a separate Photoshop window.
IMPORTANT: If you have not made any changes to the acquired image while
in Photoshop, and you click the close box of the acquired image window or
choose CLOSE from the Photoshop FILE menu or quit Photoshop, the window
will close without asking you if you want to save it. Therefore, be sure you
save any acquired images you do not want to lose before closing their
windows or quitting Photoshop.

Rotate, Rename, and Annotate Images
1. Suppose that one or more images is not displayed in the proper
rotation.
A. Select the image or images not shown in the proper rotation.
B. Click the desired rotation icon; the image or images rotate 90
degrees in the chosen direction for each click on the icon.
2. Suppose that the images on the PCMCIA card are in groups from
several different photo assignments, and that you want to name them
appropriately. (By default the driver assigns names, but they may not
be optimum for your purposes.)
NOTE: The new names are only retained for images that you are about to
acquire or archive in this work session, or for images you have previously
archived. (Acquiring and archiving are both explained later in this chapter.)
The new names are not written to the PCMCIA card.
A. Select the image or images that you want to rename; if you select
multiple images they are renamed as a group.
B. Click the rename icon.
C. Change the values in the RENAME dialog box that appears. Type a
name into the NAME area; it becomes the first portion of the image
name for all selected images. If more than one image is selected,
the values in the SEQUENCE NUMBER area are appended to the end of
the name. Change the SEQUENCE NUMBER values as desired. An
EXAMPLE appears in the box illustrating how images will be re-
 Accessing Camera Images G 6-11
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
named based on the data in the text boxes. Note that the “.TIF”
suffix is automatically added to the file name: do not type the
period or “TIF” in the NAME area.
D. Click the RENAME button; the driver renames all selected images,
and returns you to the driver image window.
3. (Optional) Annotate an image. Click a single image and then type
descriptive material in the annotation window; edit as needed, then
click outside the annotation window (or press Enter) to leave the
annotation window.
The data in the image information window is displayed automatically
by the driver.
The number of characters in the annotation window plus the number
of characters in the image information window must total 255 or less.
Some cameras display more lines in the image information window
than others; for this reason, with some cameras you may not be able
to fill the annotation window with your text. However, you can delete
some lines from the image information window by clicking on the line
(to select the entire line), and pressing the delete key on the keyboard.
This works to delete all lines except for these image information lines:
Camera; Serial #; Width; Height; Date; and Time.

Navigating Through Images
As described earlier in the chapter, you can scroll through images by
using the scroll bar at the right of the image area.
In addition, the driver provides a navigation bar with four control icons
and a center edit area in which you enter an image number to “go to” that
image.
First
Previous
Go To
Next
Last
The four icons mean, from left to right, navigate to the: first image, previous image, next image, and last image. Typing a number into the “go to”
edit box in the middle of the navigation bar and pressing the Return key
moves you to that numbered image.
Navigating through a Contact Sheet
When viewing images in CONTACT SHEET, as you have been in this chapter,
clicking icons in the navigation bar produces different results depending
on the number of images selected.
One or No Images Selected
1. If more than one image is selected, deselect them now, and select a
single image in the middle of the contact sheet.
2. Click the “first” icon; the first of all of your images is selected.
3. Click the “next” icon several times; the selected image changes,
moving consecutively to the “next” image with each click.
6-14  Accessing Camera Images G
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
4. Click the “previous” icon several times; the selected image changes,
moving consecutively to the “previous” image with each click.
5. Click the “last” icon; the last of all of your images is selected.
More than One Image Selected
Suppose that you have 30 consecutively numbered images on the PCMCIA card, and that you have selected images 5, 10, and 20 while in
CONTACT SHEET view. Now if you click one of these four icons, all of the
three selected images are deselected and a single image is selected as
follows. If you click the “first” icon, image 1 is selected. If you click the
“previous” icon, image 4 is selected. If you click the “next” icon, image
21 is selected. If you click the “last” icon, image 30 is selected.
Preview
The PREVIEW option of the VIEW menu presents an enlargement of an image
on the screen.
1. Select a single image. (In the next section of this chapter, you will
work in PREVIEW with multiple selected images.)
2. Choose Preview from the View menu.
 Accessing Camera Images G 6-15
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
The screen changes, and a single enlargement of the selected image
fills the image area on the screen.
Applying Color Balance to Images
This section describes how to color balance images, and applies only to
color images, not to images taken with monochrome camera models. The
section is divided into two parts; the first describes the process for working with a single image, and the second describes how to work with
multiple selected images at the same time.
Color balancing does not change an image at its source. Instead the color
balance settings you establish are saved with the original image and are
applied to that image when the image is acquired into Photoshop (and
when the image is displayed by the driver).
6-16  Accessing Camera Images G
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Color balance choices are contained in two separate features — the
lighting menu and the click-balance tool — both of which are described
below. Lighting can be set with either. However, lighting choices are
mutually exclusive; you cannot apply one type of lighting and then refine
it with another. Instead, each time you apply any color balancing, your
previous choice is lost, and only the current lighting setting is applied.
Click-balance is always the preferred method of applying color balance to
images.
Applying Color Balance to a Single Image
1. If you are not in the driver image window, return there now.
2. Click the image to be color balanced.
3. Choose PREVIEW from the VIEW menu; you see a single large version of
the image. (Color balancing in PREVIEW instead of CONTACT SHEET is
preferred because the effect of color balance adjustments will be more
readily evident.)
4. (Optional) Choose a larger image size from the Thumbnail/Preview
size menu in the lower right corner of the window. This allows you to
work with a blowup of the image.
 Accessing Camera Images G 6-17
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
5. Color balance the image using either method A (lighting menu) or
method B (click-balance Tool) that follows.
Method A: Lighting Menu
The lighting menu provides a simple, direct method of quickly applying
one of several lighting choices to your image. Then later, once the image
has been acquired, you can refine it if needed in Photoshop.
1. Select an option from the lighting menu that corresponds to the
original lighting conditions under which you took the images. The
change is applied and is immediately visible on the image.
2. Acquire the image as described earlier in this chapter.
Method B: Click-Balance Tool
Unlike the lighting menu which provides distinct choices to match
lighting conditions under which the image was made, the click-balance
tool provides a more refined method of color balancing, and is always the
preferred method of applying color balancing to images.
1. To activate the click-balance tool, first click its checkbox “on” (an X
appears in the checkbox to the left of this option when on).
Checkbox
6-18  Accessing Camera Images G
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
2. Move the cursor over the image, the cursor changes to a special clickbalance eyedropper cursor.
3. Click the point of the eyedropper on a white or light gray area (an
area that is not overexposed) of the image to be corrected, or click a
point that should be white or light gray where each of the red (R),
green (G), and blue (B) color values displayed below the image are as
high as possible, but lower than 255. The change is applied and is
immediately visible on the image.
NOTES: When you click, you may see the message that one of the colors is
saturated. As prompted, click another point.
If there is no white or light gray area in the image, follow the steps in the next
section to take a photograph of a neutral gray or white card and use it for
color balancing.
4. (Optional) If the correction was not satisfactory, click the eyedropper
(not the checkbox) in the click-balance tool to turn on click-balance
again, and then click another point in the image.
Eyedropper
5. (Optional) Remove the click-balance setting for the image by clicking
the click-balance checkbox “off.”

Applying Color Balance to Multiple Selected
Images
1. If you are not in the driver image window, return there now.
2. If you are not in CONTACT SHEET view, choose it now.
3. Select several images that need the same color balancing applied to
all of them; the settings you establish apply to all selected images.
4. As described in detail in the previous section:
A. Choose PREVIEW from the VIEW menu; note that if multiple-images
were selected that they appear in a stack in PREVIEW.
B. (Optional) Choose a larger image size from the Thumbnail/
Preview size menu.
C. Color balance the image using either the lighting menu or clickbalance tool.
5. Use the choices on the navigation bar to move through the selected
images.
First
Previous
Go To
Next
Last
6. (Optional) As you navigate through the images, change the color
balance as needed, repeatedly navigating through the images to
ensure that the color balancing results are as desired.
IMPORTANT: Notice that the color balance changes you make to one image
are applied to all of the selected set of images. This means that if one image
of the group has unsatisfactory color balance, and that you correct it, the
6-20  Accessing Camera Images G
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
changes are applied to all of the other selected images. To correct that single
image without affecting others, return to CONTACT SHEET view, select only that
single image, enter Preview, and color balance the single image.
7. (Optional) If you want to use click-balance, but there is no white or
light gray area in the image, take a photograph of a neutral gray or
white card (for example KODAK Gray Cards, Publication No. R-27)
under the same lighting conditions that existed when the image was
taken. Then select the image of the card as well as all other images
taken under the same lighting conditions. Click the special cursor on
the image of the card; the color balance applies to all selected images.
Saving Color Balance Changes
1. Click the DONE button to leave the driver image window; all revisions
you have made in this work session are saved.
NOTE: The settings you chose while in the driver are saved, and will be in effect
the next time you enter the driver image window.
Crop Images
Suppose that you want to crop one or more images before acquiring
them. When you crop an image, its size at the source is not reduced; the
full image is always maintained. Instead, the results of your cropping
activity is a cropping rectangle stored with each cropped image. You
select one or more image and crop as described in this section; the same
cropping rectangle applies to all selected images. The resultant cropping
rectangle is visible over the images whenever the images are displayed by
the driver in any view.
When an image with a cropping rectangle is acquired into Photoshop,
only the image area within the cropping rectangle is acquired. Image
 Accessing Camera Images G 6-21
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
acquisition will be faster than with a full image, and the acquired image
will be smaller than a full-size image. And, if you are not satisfied with
your initial crop, you can revise or remove the cropping rectangle as
desired at any time. These actions are described below.
1. If you are not in the driver image window, access it as described
earlier in this chapter.
2. Select the image or images that you want to crop.
NOTE: You can not simultaneously crop multiple images from different
camera types. The DCS 410, DCS 420, and EOS•DCS 5 are the same camera
type; the NC 2000, NC 2000e, and EOS•DCS 3 are the same camera type;
and the DCS 460, DCS 465, and EOS•DCS 1 are the same camera type.
3. Click the Crop icon.
6-22  Accessing Camera Images G
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
4. Wait as the CROP dialog box appears; note that if multiple-images
were selected that they appear in a stack in the box. In this step you
will set some of the options of this dialog box to crop images. (All
options are explained in detail in chapter 8.)
Stack indicates that
multiple images
will be cropped.
A. Choose one of the two available methods. FREEFORM is the correct
choice for most cropping activity, while FIXED SIZE is appropriate when
 Accessing Camera Images G 6-23
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
you know beforehand the exact output dimensions desired for the
image. Make one of these choices:


FREEFORM allows you to drag any edge of the selection rectangle in any direction.
FIXED SIZE allows you to specify the exact output dimensions
desired. A SIZE dialog box appears; it allows you to establish
fixed dimensions (in inches or centimeters) for the crop
rectangle.
B. If the METHOD is FREEFORM, drag the mouse to create the desired
crop rectangle.
C. (Optional) Resize the rectangle by dragging its sides or corners.
D. (Optional) Reposition the rectangle by moving the cursor inside
the cropping rectangle, and dragging it to the desired position.
E. (Optional) Resize or reposition the cropping rectangle by entering
numeric values in the LEFT, TOP, WIDTH, and HEIGHT text boxes. The
first two reposition the top left corner of the rectangle, and last
two control its width and height.
F. (Optional) Turn “on” the FIX ASPECT RATIO checkbox (an X appears
in the checkbox to the left of this option when on); the driver
holds the width and height in proportion while you adjust the
dimensions of the cropping rectangle.
NOTE: If you are working in FIXED SIZE, the FIX ASPECT RATIO checkbox is
always off.
G. (Optional) If multiple images were selected, click the navigation
buttons — first, previous, next, and last — beneath the image to
scroll through the selected images in the stack; the cropping
rectangle appears on each image. If the cropping rectangle does
not provide the desired cropping action for all selected images as
6-24  Accessing Camera Images G
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
you step through them, resize or reposition cropping rectangle as

Working with Images in the Studio
This section is a tutorial on using the camera in a studio setting to take
new images.
NOTE: The earlier part of this chapter describes how you can work with images
on a PCMCIA card in the camera. All features described there also apply to studio
work (and are not repeated below), so we encourage you to review the earlier
sections of this chapter.
1. With the camera connected to your computer, access the driver image
window as described earlier in this chapter.
2. Choose CAMERA from the SOURCE menu to work with images from a
connected camera.
3. Choose TEST SHOT from the VIEW menu. This displays a single image
which is always the most recent picture you take with the camera
after choosing TEST SHOT.
IMPORTANT: In TEST SHOT, images you take are not saved to the PCMCIA
card in the camera unless you click the KEEP button as described below;
instead, images are displayed in the image area one at a time. Each new
image you take replaces the previous one, which is lost.
6-26  Accessing Camera Images G
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
4. As prompted by a message that appears in the driver image window,
click the Take Picture icon (or use the shutter release to take a
picture). The camera takes a picture and displays it in the image area.
5. (Optional) If the “test” picture is one that you want to keep, click the
KEEP button, and the image is saved to the PCMCIA card in the camera. (The COPY TO button becomes the KEEP button when in TEST SHOT.)
6. (Optional) Adjust your studio settings as needed (reposition lighting,
etc.) and then take an additional test picture.
7. (Optional) Click the KEEP button to save the image, or click the Take
Picture icon to take another picture — it replaces the previous image
which is not saved. (If you do not clicked KEEP, a message warns you
that you are about to lose the current image.)
8. Choose CONTACT SHEET or PREVIEW from the VIEW menu (to leave TEST
SHOT). Subsequent images you take will be recorded on the PCMCIA
card in the camera.
9. Take additional images as desired.
10. Color balance, crop, rename, and annotate images as described in
earlier sections of this chapter.
11. Acquire images as described earlier in this chapter.
IMPORTANT: If you have not made any changes to the acquired image while
in Photoshop, and you click the close box of the acquired image window or
 Accessing Camera Images G 6-27
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
choose CLOSE from the Photoshop FILE menu or quit Photoshop, the window
will close without asking you if you want to save it. Therefore, be sure you
save any acquired images you do not want to lose before closing their
windows or quitting Photoshop.
12. Click DONE; the driver image window closes and all changes to
settings you have made during this work session are saved.

Archive and Delete Images
The driver provides a variety of additional features that allow you to work
with image and sound files.
As described in this section, you can copy images from the PCMCIA card
in the camera to your computer hard disk for archival purposes and later
retrieval into Photoshop, and you can delete some or all of the images on
the PCMCIA card in the camera or on your computer hard disk.
Archiving images provides advantages over acquiring images. The file size
of an archived color image is much smaller than the file size of a color
image acquired and saved through Photoshop. Also, saving images as
archive files is faster than acquiring and saving them through Photoshop.
These features are briefly described here, and are explained fully in
chapter 8.
(Optional) Create Archive Files
1. Access the driver and display images from a PCMCIA card in the camera.
2. Select images you want to save as archive files.
NOTE: Archive files are composed of uninterpolated data; they have not been
“acquired” into Photoshop. This means they contain the raw, native data
generated from the imager in the camera back.
3. Click the COPY TO button. A “copy to” dialog box appears; make the
desired choices. The selected images (with any associated sound files,
revised filenames, cropping data, color balancing data, etc.), are saved
to your computer hard disk, with each image file and each sound file
becoming a separate file on your computer hard disk. The filenames
are generated by the driver unless you have renamed the files with the
Rename icon, in which case your names are used.
6-30  Accessing Camera Images G
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
4. Later, to work with these archive files, enter the driver, and use
CHOOSE FOLDER from the SOURCE menu (Macintosh), or click the icon
near the SOURCE drop-down menu (TWAIN-PC), to locate and open
the folder with the archive images.
Macintosh:
TWAIN (PC):
IMPORTANT: Use only the driver to open image archive files. Do not open
an archive file directly into Photoshop or other image software and then
resave the data with the same filename. Image archive files you create with
the COPY TO button contain several sections — one section with a TIFF
version of the thumbnail, and then another section with the image data.
When you open the file with Photoshop, only the TIFF thumbnail is opened,
and if saved, only the thumbnail is saved — not the image data. For this
reason, you should only open these files from within the driver image
window using the CHOOSE FOLDER choice of the SOURCE menu as described in
this step; this will ensure that you obtain the image data.
IMPORTANT: If your camera model is of the type that requires a calibration
file (DCS 460 or EOS•DCS 1), refer to the important information on calibration (CAL) files for archived images in the section “Calibration (CAL) Files” at
the end of Chapter 7.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Delete Files
1. Select images you want to delete.
2. Click the Delete button.
IMPORTANT: When clicked, the DELETE button deletes all selected images,
including those selected images that may have temporarily scrolled out of
view. The images are not only deleted from the driver image window, but are
also deleted from their source (PCMCIA card or archive file). Additionally,
sound files associated with the selected images are also deleted.
3. Respond as desired to the confirmation dialog box.
4. (Optional) Delete additional images from another source.
Revise Preferences
Clicking the preferences icon allows you to set many of the parameters
used in the driver, including: general preferences, contact sheet preferences, and color preferences. All are described in chapter 8.
Quitting
Follow these steps when you are done with the driver.
NOTE: The settings you chose while in the driver are saved, and will be in effect
the next time you enter the driver image window.

1. Click the DONE button to leave the driver image window; all revisions
you have made in this work session are saved.
2. (Optional) Edit and save opened acquired images in Photoshop.
IMPORTANT: If you have not made any changes to the acquired image while
in Photoshop, and you click the close box of the acquired image window or
choose CLOSE from the Photoshop FILE menu or quit Photoshop, the window
will close without asking you if you want to save it. Therefore, be sure you
save any acquired images you do not want to lose before closing their
windows or quitting Photoshop.
3. Quit Photoshop.
4. Turn off the camera and computer as described in an earlier chapter.
5. (Optional) Disconnect the camera from the computer.
IMPORTANT: Do not disconnect the camera from the computer while the
computer is on.
6. (Optional) Disconnect the AC battery charger/adapter from the
camera.

KODAK Camera Back and Imager
The KODAK camera back incorporates a charge coupled device (CCD)
full-frame imager that collects light striking the imager.
The Specifications appendix lists the camera models available and dimensions of the imager and size of the file produced by the imager.
Just after you take a picture, the Canon EOS-1 N camera transmits data
such as the ISO, aperture, and shutter speed to the KODAK camera back.
After the shutter closes, the camera back uses this information to process
the image data.
When you take a picture, light passes through the lens onto the imager;
each pixel in the imager receives and stores a specified amount of light.
These data — for one image — leave the imager chip in analog form, and
are converted to digital form and stored with other data in dynamic
random access memory (DRAM). The amount of DRAM in the camera is
listed in the Specifications appendix.
Once the data are in DRAM, the data from the image are transferred to the
PCMCIA card. Hardware in the camera back generates a thumbnail from
the image data. The thumbnail is a subsample of image data. The thumbnail is then stored with the full image on the PCMCIA card.
You can use one of the supplied software drivers on your computer to
update firmware (nonvolatile memory) in the camera back that controls
how the camera works. This is a key feature since this design means it is
possible for you to update camera firmware yourself as it may be released
by Kodak instead of returning the camera for firmware updates.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
A self-test of camera performance is available to you through a button on
the Control Panel of the software drivers. This can be helpful for field
troubleshooting before you call Kodak.
Timing Considerations
When you take a picture (or a burst of pictures), it is first stored in the
dynamic random access memory (DRAM); then the image is moved from
DRAM onto the PCMCIA card. Timing details appear in the Specifications
appendix.

Frames Remaining Indicator — KODAK Camera
Back
The frames remaining indicator displays the number of additional pictures
that can be stored on the PCMCIA card currently in the camera system.
Frames remaining
The number of images that can be stored on a PCMCIA card depends on
the storage capability of the card; an example of the storage capacity of
one size card appears in the Specifications appendix.
Frame Counter — Canon EOS-1 N Camera
A separate numbering system is provided by the Canon EOS-1 N camera.
Its frame counter appears on the Canon EOS-1 N LCD on top of the
camera. These numbers go up by one as each picture is taken. After
reaching number 39, the frame counter cycles back to 1, 2, etc.
Since the PCMCIA card can store more than 39 images, you probably will
have multiple images on the same PCMCIA card with the same numbers.
To avoid confusion when you — or others — look for specific images on
the PCMCIA card, you can use the record button as described later in this
chapter to annotate images, or when you access images with the driver
you can look in the Image Information Window to determine the time the
image was taken.
 Reference — Camera G 7-7
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
This frame counter displays the number of the picture you have just taken
rather than the number of the next picture you will take.
The Canon EOS-1 N frame counter is displayed beneath each image in
the software driver image window.
When you delete images (with the DELETE button on the camera back or
with a software driver), existing images on the PCMCIA card are not
renumbered. Consider the figure below. Suppose that you had an empty
PCMCIA card, took five pictures, and then deleted image 5 with the
DELETE button and images 2 and 3 with the software driver. Image 4 is
not renumbered. As new pictures are stored to the PCMCIA card, they are
given the next higher number that has not been previously used for an
image. In the figure below, new images will be numbered 6, 7, …
Frame number
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
The highest frame number is 39. When you reach frame number 39, the
next picture you take will be numbered 1, then 2, then 3, and so on, even
if those numbers are already in use.
Therefore it is possible that you may have several images on a PCMCIA
card with the same number. Duplicate image numbers do not cause any
functional problems.

DELETE Button and Delete Indicator
You use the DELETE button to delete the most recent image on the
PCMCIA card.
IMPORTANT: If you inadvertently delete images, an emergency procedure
provides an opportunity for you to recover images if you do so before making any
additional images. Refer to the explanation of the RECOVER button in Chapter 8.
To use the DELETE button, if you are not connected to a computer or the
AC battery charger/adapter, first turn on the camera system and lightly
press the shutter release button to wake the camera. (If you are connected
to a computer that is “on,” or to the AC battery charger/adapter, the
camera back will be “on;” you do not need to turn on the camera.) Then
press the DELETE button once to wake delete mode. The characters “DEL”
— the delete indicator — appear on the camera back LCD. Then press
DELETE again to delete the last image.
As long as the characters “DEL” appear on the LCD, you can press the
DELETE button again and again to delete additional images. With each
press the frames remaining indicator on the camera back increases by
one, indicating that there is now room for one additional image on the
PCMCIA card. The frame counter in the camera top LCD does not change
as a result of deleting an image.

The DELETE button is for emergencies, not for routine operation. As an
example of its use, suppose you are beginning to shoot and realize that
the PCMCIA card is full, and that you do not have another PCMCIA card.
The DELETE button provides an on-site method of deleting images so that
you can continue to use the camera. Or perhaps you know that you need
to conserve space on the PCMCIA card and you realize that a picture you
have just taken is not satisfactory. You can use the DELETE button to
delete that image.
The DELETE button deletes only one image at a time, and only the most
recent image on the PCMCIA card. That is, if you have 20 images on the
PCMCIA card, you cannot delete the fifteenth image and leave the others.
However, you can delete the fifteenth image with one of the supplied
software drivers when connected to a computer. In addition you can use
the software drivers to delete multiple selected images simultaneously, or
to erase or format the entire PCMCIA card.
NOTES: The DELETE button does not function when the camera is connected to a
computer; use the DELETE button on the software driver to delete images in this
configuration.
Only image files are deleted. Sound files, or other files that may be on the disk are
not deleted.

button (this is not necessary if you are connected to the AC battery
charger/adapter) to wake the camera. Then, press the SCSI ID button once
with your fingertip or other blunt object to wake SCSI mode. The characters “SCSI” — the SCSI indicator — appear on the camera back LCD as
does the current SCSI ID value, a single digit from 0 to 7, “PC” or “PP.”
As long as the characters “SCSI” appear on the LCD, you can press the
SCSI ID button again and again to rotate through the available values.
Stop when you have selected the SCSI ID you want. Several seconds after
you press the SCSI ID button for the last time, SCSI mode turns off; reactivate it — if needed — and press the SCSI ID button again.
Select the appropriate SCSI ID before you connect the camera to your
computer. Select an ID that is different from the SCSI ID of any other
connected SCSI devices.
“PC” SETTING FOR AN IBM OR COMPATIBLE LAPTOP (PC) CUSTOMERS (Not
for use with the Macintosh): Use the “PC” SCSI ID setting only if you will be
connecting the camera to an IBM or compatible laptop computer using a
PCMCIA-to-SCSI II adapter (such as the Adaptec SlimSCSI used with EZ-SCSI 4.0
or the New Media Bus Toaster), to connect the PCMCIA slot on your laptop (not
the camera) to the SCSI connector on the camera. “PC” sets the SCSI ID of the
camera to 1 and turns on active termination in the camera.
When you finish, take the camera out of “PC” mode, turn off the computer and
camera. If left in “PC” mode, a fully charged battery will be exhausted in approximately eight hours since the camera can not change to low power mode when
this SCSI setting is active.
“PP” SETTING: the “PP” setting, although it appears, is not currently supported
and should not be selected.

PCMCIA Cards
“Standard,” removable, credit-card sized PCMCIA cards (Personal Computer Memory Card International Association) are used for image storage.
The camera incorporates a PCMCIA-ATA Type III slot.
The camera saves images to the PCMCIA card currently plugged into the
camera back. You can fill one card, remove it, insert another card, and
continue shooting.
These removable, miniaturized media provide great flexibility since you
can carry a significant amount of image storage capability with you into
the field or the studio. The camera functions as a card reader, so no
separate PCMCIA card reader is required. However, if you have a commercially available PCMCIA card reader for your computer system, you
can return only the card to a central site for image retrieval while the
camera remains in the field.
PCMCIA cards are extremely fragile, and are easily damaged — especially
if dropped. For this reason, use extreme care with the cards. Dropping a
card may destroy it, resulting in the loss of all of your data on the card.
Supported PCMCIA Cards
The camera is designed to accept PCMCIA hard disk cards that support
the PCMCIA “ATA” interface, although all such cards may not work.
(Refer to the read-me file on the supplied software driver diskette for
information on specific cards known to work with the camera.) The ATA
protocol is the same interface used for AT disk drives in PCs. PCMCIA
hard disk cards are available in a variety of sizes, for example 105, 170,
260, and 340 megabyte (MB) sizes.
In addition to PCMCIA hard disk cards, the camera will accept flash
memory cards if the cards support the ATA protocol. (This means that
standard PCMCIA memory SRAM cards are not supported.)
7-18
 Reference — Camera G
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Consult the specifications for your cards to determine if their operating
limits (for temperature, humidity, etc.), are more restrictive than those for
the camera, and if they are, adhere to those limits.
Card Busy Light
A red Card Busy LED appears on the camera back. When flashing, it
indicates that the camera back is accessing — reading from or writing to
— a PCMCIA card in place in the slot in the camera back; it is a warning
not to remove the installed PCMCIA card. If you do, you may lose all data
on the card. Wait until the blinking stops before removing the PCMCIA
card.
DOS Formatting and Card Access
The PCMCIA cards used for image storage must be (DOS) formatted with
the camera using one of the supplied drivers as described in Chapter 4.
The image and sound files placed on the cards by the camera system are
also DOS format files, meaning that if you have a separate card reader
you can use DOS commands on a PC, if available, to manage image files
without the software driver. If you have a separate card reader — or other
equipment that uses these PCMCIA cards — you can use that equipment
to store and retrieve files in a variety of formats on the cards.
Troubleshooting, Disk Recovery, and
Fragmentation
If you encounter a problem that you believe is associated with the
PCMCIA card, you can perform simple troubleshooting by trying another
card if available. Doing so will enable you to determine if the problem is
associated with that single PCMCIA card, or with another part of the
 Reference — Camera G 7-19
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
camera system. If the problem is with the PCMCIA card, you can try the
steps in the next paragraph.
The RECOVER button on the Camera Control panel of the software driver,
can be used in some circumstances while the camera is connected to a
computer to recover files that have been inadvertently deleted. In addition, since the PCMCIA card is in DOS format, it may be possible to
recover an image or sound file using PC utility programs, if available, with
file recovery features; doing so requires a separate PCMCIA card reader
since these programs cannot access the cards through the camera back. If
these actions are unsuccessful, you may need to format the card, an
operation which will erase all of your data on the card.
It is possible that a PCMCIA card may become fragmented, meaning that
files — such as the large image files — are broken into linked parts on
non-contiguous areas of the card. This can occur in several situations,
such as when small non-image files are stored in and among image files,
meaning that a large number of small unused areas are interspersed on the
card, rather than having all empty blocks together on one portion of the
card. Fragmentation can result, and if it does, it can result in slowed
camera performance.
If you believe this has occurred, you can delete all files on the card and/or
format the card — after saving files as desired to your computer hard disk.
You can also run a utility program (not supplied with the camera system)
with “defragger” capability that rearranges existing files into contiguous
areas of the PCMCIA card. This in turn frees large blocks on the card,
meaning that image files produced by the camera can be stored in a
single contiguous area — more efficient for file storage and retrieval.
Using a utility program requires a separate PCMCIA card reader since
these programs cannot access the cards through the camera back.

The camera functions independently, so if a PCMCIA card is in the
camera, it is not necessary for the computer to be running the software driver while taking pictures. The camera will continue to function while connected to the computer even if other software is active
or if the computer is off.
The AC battery charger/adapter can be used with the camera while
the camera is connected to a computer. We recommend this configuration.
If you use the camera while the software driver is running on the
computer, images will appear one-after-another in the image window
as you take pictures, allowing you to determine quickly if the current
image is acceptable or not.
If no PCMCIA card is present in the camera each new image replaces
the previous one. If you have an image you want to save, be certain
that you acquire it or save it to an archive folder before taking another
picture.
Do not take new pictures while an image is being acquired.
The DELETE button on the camera back is disabled while the camera
is connected to a computer. Instead use the DELETE button on the
driver image window of the software driver to delete images.
The Take Picture icon on the software driver can be clicked to issue a
command that directs the camera to take a picture.

Battery and AC Battery Charger/
Adapter
Battery Charging for Optimal Capacity
IMPORTANT: Do not attempt to remove the battery; it is not a customer serviceable part.
The camera incorporates a single, rechargeable nickel hydride battery that
powers both the camera back and the Canon EOS-1 N camera; no batteries are installed in the Canon camera. The Specifications appendix lists
the number of frames you can expect from a fully-charged battery in
typical shooting situations.
Battery charging is inhibited when the internal battery temperature is
above 113˚ F (45˚ C). The camera system will continue to operate for as
long as the battery charge is sufficient; however, you will not be able to
charge the camera system until the internal battery temperature drops
below this limit.
Under normal conditions, charging the battery for at least two hours
provides optimal capacity. However, under very cold or very hot conditions, charge for at least 30 minutes after the LCD battery indicator
indicates a full charge. Charge the battery as close to the time the camera
will be used as possible. (Waiting in excess of two days before shooting
will result in reduced battery capacity.)
Use the AC battery charger/adapter when connected to a computer if
possible; use without the adapter in this configuration for an extended
time period will drain the battery. Leaving the camera connected to the
AC battery charger/adapter will not maintain a full charge; therefore
disconnect before use, then reconnect and charge for two hours to ensure
a full charge. Extended camera metering or focusing reduces the number
of images available from a charge.

The feature is intended as an annotation system that records sound at
“telephone quality” — 8-bits, 11 kilohertz, monaural. Recorded sound is
saved as a “.WAV” file on the PCMCIA card; WAV files are the Windows
standard sound file format. Sound files are time- and date-stamped when
written to the PCMCIA card.
As a sound segment is recorded, it is held briefly in dynamic random
access memory (DRAM) in the camera back, and is then moved to the
 Reference — Camera G 7-27
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
PCMCIA card where it is saved as a sound file. As a result, the card may
contain an intermingling of image and sound files.
The camera alone cannot play the recorded sound; instead, a computer is
needed to access and play the sound files.
How to Record Sound
To record sound, make sure that a PCMCIA card is in the camera, then
turn on and wake the camera (or operate while connected to the AC
battery charger/adapter or to a computer that is on), and hold the camera
back approximately six inches (15 cm) from your mouth, press and hold
the record button, speak into the microphone, and when finished, release
the record button. The center dot of the recording level meter (also called
the disk indicator) on the camera back LCD comes on when sound is
being recorded.
Recording
If the shutter release is pressed while the record button is down, audio
recording stops until the image has been recorded. If the record button is
still down, the system begins to record sound again.
For simplicity there are no controls other than the record button; there is
no volume control, and no way to set the recording level.
Sound will not be recorded while shooting an image burst.
As sound is being recorded, segments of the recording level meter (also
called the disk indicator) bounce up and back, serving as a level meter
7-28
 Reference — Camera G
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
(similar to the levels commonly displayed on audio equipment like tape
decks). The bouncing segments provide feedback, a visual indication that
sound is being recorded. The best quality recording occurs when 4-5
segments are on.
No sound
Maximum
Sound files are loosely associated with the image taken before the sound
was recorded.
Recording “Lengthy” Audio Segments
Approximately 25 seconds of uninterrupted sound can be recorded in a
single file. If you press and hold the record button for over 25 seconds, a
slightly different recording action will occur.


The first 25 seconds of audio fills all available dynamic random
access memory. Recording then stops for up to several seconds —
even though the button is still depressed — while the data in memory
are moved to a new file on the PCMCIA card by the camera. Then
recording begins again for another 25 seconds, after which this new
segment of sound is moved to a new sound file on the PCMCIA card,
and so on. Each 25 second segment is stored on the card as a separate
file.
During the interruption between each 25 second segment, the red
Card Busy light on the camera back blinks, and the dot in the disk
icon goes off. These indicate that data are being written to the card,
and that sound is not being recorded.

When sound is not being recorded, you can refer to the disk icon on the
camera back LCD; it indicates the combined proportion of the PCMCIA
card filled with image and/or audio files.
Playing Sound Files
Recorded sound files can be played from the PCMCIA card with the
software driver and your computer as explained in Chapter 8. No additional hardware is required to play the recorded file on a Macintosh
computer; a sound board is required to play the recorded file on a PC.

The camera is continuously on and awake when the camera is operated while connected to the AC battery charger/adapter; once the
batteries are fully charged the adapter switches automatically to a
slow trickle charge. If the camera is saving an image to a PCMCIA
card when the adapter is disconnected, the camera back remains on
and awake until the image is saved.
The camera is also continuously on and awake when the camera is
operated while connected to a computer that is on. If the camera is
saving an image to a PCMCIA card when the computer is turned off,
the camera remains on until the image is saved.
If the camera is operated without the AC battery charger/adapter and
without being connected to a computer, you turn on the camera by
moving the power switch to the on position (I). The camera is awake
for several seconds after you turn it on, then sleeps. You can wake it
by lightly tapping the shutter release button. After taking a picture, the
camera remains awake until the image is saved.

Trouble
Possible Cause
Suggested Solution
When the camera is
connected to a computer,
and/or the camera is being
operated with the AC
battery charger/ adapter, a
studio flash connected to
the PC terminal will not go
off, or goes off only once
and then freezes.
Polarity is reversed in
the studio flash — a
condition that
becomes apparent
when the camera
system is grounded.
If the plug is reversible, reverse the
plug where the sync cord plugs into
the flash.
You have other problems
with a flash.
A non-dedicated
incompatible
electronic flash is
being used.
 Reference — Camera G
Or, use a commercially available IR
slave or radio slave.
You can confirm this
condition by
operating the camera
with the flash after
disconnecting the AC
adapter and the
computer; the flash
should then operate
normally.
Check with a Canon authorized
service facility for compatible
equipment.

Cleaning the Imager
The imager is the component of the camera that records light when you
take a picture. Even though it is located inside the camera, it is still
possible for the imager to become dirty.
The directions in this section describe how to determine if the imager
needs cleaning, and how to clean the imager.
Determining If the Imager Is Dirty
There are two ways to determine whether the imager needs cleaning:


You can take a test picture and look for imperfections in the image
that indicate dirt on the imager.
You can visually inspect the imager for dirt.
Both techniques are described below.
Technique 1: Examine a Test Image
1. Set up the camera to operate while connected to a computer.
2. Set the lens aperture to its highest f number, to provide for maximum
depth of field.
3. Take a photograph of a plain white object like a clean, white wall.
4. Examine the image on the computer monitor; imperfections in the
image, such as dark clusters or streaks, may indicate a dirty imager.
Technique 2: Visually Inspect the Imager
1. Set up your camera to operate in stand-alone mode (not connected to
either a computer or the AC battery charger/adapter).
 Reference — Camera G 7-39
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
2. Turn off the camera.
3. Remove the lens from the camera.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Select the bulb mode. (Press and hold down the shooting mode
selector — Mode — and rotate the main dial until “bulb” is displayed.)
6. Press and hold the shutter release button; the shutter stays open, and
the imager is visible through the lens mounting flange.
CAUTION: Do not attempt to clean the imager while the camera is in
this state; the shutter can be damaged if you release the shutter button
while any object is in the opening.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
7. Hold the camera so that light reflects off the imager; visually inspect
the imager for grease, fingerprints, lint, or other dirt.
8. Release the shutter release button.
9. Turn off the camera.
10. Mount the lens.
11. Turn on the camera and move off the bulb setting.
12. If the imager is clean, proceed to operate the camera normally;
however, if the imager is dirty, clean it using the following steps.
Cleaning a Dirty Imager
CAUTION: In the following steps you will separate the camera body and
the camera back — an action that exposes the imager to the environment. Because the imager is sensitive to static discharge, you must
observe the static discharge control measures described below.
As you complete these steps, be certain that you do not touch the inside
of the camera back (except as instructed).
Separating the Camera from the KODAK
Camera Back
1. Locate the cleaning materials supplied with the camera. Included are
an electrostatic discharge (ESD) wrist strap, low-lint web cleaner pads,
 Reference — Camera G 7-41
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
and a cleaning solution. The wrist strap is used to provide protection
against damaging electronic components of the camera back.
IMPORTANT: Use only the cleaning materials provided with the camera.

Wiping the Imager
1. Examine the imager visually. If there is lint on the imager (but not
grease, fingerprints, or other dirt), continue at step 9; otherwise
continue with the next step.
2. Dampen one corner of the web cleaning pad sparingly with the
cleaning solution.
3. Wrap the damp corner of the cleaner pad over the forefinger of one
hand.
4. Hold the camera back firmly in place on the flat surface with your
other hand.
5. Gently scrub the imager with the damp corner of the cleaner pad; use
a circular motion, and move over the entire imager. This action
should dislodge dirt and/or remove grease and fingerprints.
6. Wipe off residue on the imager surface by wiping repeatedly straight
across the imager with a dry corner of the cleaning pad.

Using a Flash
WARNING: Do not connect a non-dedicated electronic flash unit to the
camera (hot shoe or PC terminal) without verification from a Canon
authorized service facility that the flash unit is compatible with the
camera body. Some electronic flash units will damage the camera body
unless they are isolated with an IR slave or a radio slave. Check with a
Canon authorized service facility for compatible equipment.
Flash units or flash accessories designed for dedicated use with other
camera brands will not work properly and may damage the camera
body. Flash units with a trigger circuit voltage in excess of 6 volts DC
may damage the camera body.
When using studio flash or non-dedicated flash you must set the camera
to manual exposure mode to set the proper shutter speed for flash synchronization.
The shutter speed for flash synchronization with studio flash may be
different from dedicated Canon flash synchronization. Flash synchronization with a studio flash may be 1⁄125 second, while dedicated Canon
flash synchronization is 1⁄250 second. Before use, test the flash at various
shutter speeds to make sure it synchronizes properly with the camera.
When using the camera with a studio flash, if either the SCSI cable or the
charger are connected, it may be necessary to reverse the ground polarity
of the flash cord in order for the flash to work; alternately, use an IR slave
or a radio slave to isolate the camera from the flash.
(The read-me file on the supplied driver diskette may contain additional
information regarding using a flash.)

Calibration (CAL) Files —
EOS•DCS 1 Only
In order to use any images taken with your EOS•DCS 1 Camera, a “calibration” (CAL) file designed for your particular camera back must be
present on your computer hard disk. Instructions in Chapter 4 describe
how to install that CAL file. If several different cameras are in use at your
location, the unique CAL file for each camera must be installed in order to
access images from each camera; this means that you may have multiple
CAL files on your hard disk.
CAL files are required in order to display thumbnails or previews of
images in the driver image window, and are required in order to acquire
an image. If the CAL file is not on your hard disk, or not in the proper
place on your hard disk, you will see a message specifying the name of
the missing CAL file when the driver attempts to display the image, and
you will not be able to display or acquire the image.
When you copy images from a PCMCIA card to your hard disk with the
COPY TO button, the CAL file(s) associated with the camera(s) used to take
the selected images are automatically copied to the folder with the
images. The calibration files are needed subsequently to display and/or
acquire the images. For this reason it is very important that you do not
delete any CAL files you find in folders with your images.
If you transport your images to another computer system (perhaps you are
distributing unacquired images to others at a different location at which
the software driver has been installed), be certain that you also transport
the CAL files found in the folder with the images. You will not be able to
display those images in the driver image window, nor will you be able to
acquire those images, unless their associated CAL files are available. The
CAL files should be placed in the same folder as the images.

General Features
When you access the driver, you see the following window — called the
driver image window — on your computer monitor. Within it is the image
area which displays images, either thumbnails or a single larger image
called a preview. Thumbnails and preview images can be displayed in
several different sizes. A variety of menus, icons, buttons, textboxes, and
indicators surround the image area of the driver image window. These are
described in detail in this chapter.
The driver can display images from a variety of supported Kodak camera
types. This means that you can use the same PCMCIA card with different
supported Kodak cameras and view all of the images with the same driver.
The letters shown on the illustration below correspond to the sections of
this chapter in which the labeled items are described.

The driver provides a variety of features that allow you to work with
image and sound files on the PCMCIA card in the camera, on your
computer hard disk, and in memory of the camera. The driver allows you
to return from a photographic shoot, rapidly view the images, and acquire
selected images (or a contact sheet of images), immediately into
Photoshop. The driver is also designed to allow you to work with your
camera in a studio setting.

You can transfer selected images to your computer hard disk for archival
purposes and/or for later retrieval into Photoshop. You can then delete
some or all of the images on the PCMCIA card in preparation for making
additional images on that card. Sound files can be played through the
driver and are saved to your computer hard disk when their corresponding image is archived.
You select thumbnail images in the image area by clicking an image, by
shift-clicking (on a Macintosh) or control-clicking (on a PC) to add or
subtract from the selected images, by dragging the mouse over adjacent
thumbnails, by clicking the ALL button, or by choosing the ALL or NONE
choices on the Photoshop SELECT menu (which is active while you are in
the driver image window). A narrow color border surrounds highlighted
images.
You scroll through the images by moving the vertical scroll box or scroll
arrows, or with a row of navigation tools — the navigation bar — on the
driver image window. The navigation tools allows you to move to the first
or last image, forward or back to the image before or after the selected
image, or to a specific image by entering its number. (Refer to the “Navigation Bar” section of this chapter for a full explanation of this tool.)
Depending on the size and configuration of your monitor, and the thumbnail size, you see one or more thumbnails on each row, and one or more
rows of thumbnails in the image area of the driver image window.
The image filename (which may be a default name assigned by the driver,
or a name you have assigned), appears with each image, as does the
frame number.
To use the driver, you must first install it by following the series of onetime steps described in the chapter “Preparing the Camera and the Computer.” Then each time you want to use the driver, you access it as
described in those chapters.

shown on the illustration at the start of this chapter.
NOTE: As you work with the driver, notice that all features are not always active;
instead, some choices are dimmed. This is normal operation, for all features are
not always applicable to the current settings and are therefore dimmed by the
driver. For example, when you are in TEST SHOT, you can only work with one
image at a time. For that reason the navigation tools are dimmed since there are
no other images to which you can move.

thumbnails, with the size of each thumbnail determined by the thumbnail/
preview size menu on the driver image window.
PREVIEW
Select an image (or images) while in CONTACT SHEET and then choose
PREVIEW to view an enlarged version of an image from its source. If multiple images are selected, they appear as a stack of images in PREVIEW.
This option is useful when a close examination of the image is desired, for
example when changing the color balance options (the effect of color
balance adjustments are evident more readily with a larger image than
with smaller contact sheet images).
Color balancing while in PREVIEW works differently depending on whether
you have selected a single image or multiple images before choosing
PREVIEW.

When you select a single image, and enter PREVIEW to color balance it,
the revised color balancing applies only to that single image. While
still in Preview, you can then navigate through one single image after
another, making changes that apply to just that single image.
However, when you select multiple images and then enter PREVIEW to
color balance them, the revised color balancing applies to all selected
images. Using the navigation tool as described just below allows you

to move through the subset of selected PREVIEW images to ensure that
the color balancing is appropriate for all images.
You move through the large format preview images from the source with
the image navigation tools as described below.

If you have selected no images when you choose PREVIEW, the first
image of the source is displayed in PREVIEW view. If you click any of
the navigation buttons you move through all source images using the
first image as the starting point.
If you have selected only one image before you choose PREVIEW, that
image is displayed in PREVIEW view. If you click any of the navigation
buttons you move through all source images using that image as the
starting point.

If you have selected multiple images before you choose PREVIEW, the
first of the selected images is displayed, and the images appear in a
stack. The navigation buttons move you through only the selected set
of images. For example if you select images 3, 6, 7, 9, and 10, image 3
would be displayed upon entering PREVIEW. If you press the “next”
navigation icon, image 6 is displayed; if you press the “last” navigation
icon, image 10 is displayed.
While in PREVIEW, if you type an image number into the text area of the
navigation box, that image is displayed. However, if you are working
with a stack of images, you will receive an error message if you type
an image number, and the number does not correspond to one of the
selected images.
The size of the preview image is controlled by the thumbnail/preview size
menu. If the image in the selected display size does not fit in the image
area, the scroll bars are enabled.
The window title bar displays the name of the image source followed by
the name of the image currently being shown.
TEST SHOT
Choose TEST SHOT to work with a single image which is always a picture
you take with the camera after entering TEST SHOT. In TEST SHOT, images you
take are not saved to the PCMCIA card in the camera unless you click the
KEEP button as described below; instead, images are displayed in the image
area one at a time. Each new image you take replaces the previous one,
which is lost.
TEST SHOT allows you to make adjustments to camera settings and other
settings as needed (reposition lighting, etc.), without wasting disk space on
the PCMCIA card.
If the “test” picture is one that you want to keep, click the KEEP button, and
the image is saved to the PCMCIA card in the camera. (The COPY TO

button becomes the KEEP button when in TEST SHOT.) If you do not want to
keep the image, take another picture — it replaces the previous image
which is not saved. (If you do not clicked KEEP, a message warns you that
you are about to lose the current image.)
Choose CONTACT SHEET or PREVIEW from the VIEW menu, to leave TEST SHOT.
Subsequent images you take will be recorded on the PCMCIA card in the
camera.
Since it is possible that you may inadvertently leave the camera in TEST
SHOT (resulting in lost pictures that you believe are being recorded), the
driver provides several visual indicators that you are in TEST SHOT.
1. When you take another picture, if you have not “kept” the previous
one, a warning message is displayed, indicating that the first image
was not saved and reminding you that the camera is in TEST SHOT.
2. The text “TEST SHOT” appears in the window title bar along with the
camera name.
3. The COPY TO button becomes the KEEP button.

C. Photoshop Menus
Two Photoshop menus — EDIT and SELECT — are active when you are in
the driver.
Photoshop EDIT Menu
You can use the CUT, COPY, PASTE, and CLEAR items from the Photoshop EDIT
menu with annotation text; however, you can not cut, copy, paste, or
clear selected images with these commands.
Photoshop SELECT menu
You can use the ALL and NONE items from the Photoshop SELECT menu.
ALL
Selects “all” images on the contact sheet including images that have
scrolled out of view in the image area of the driver image window; if you
scroll the image window, you see that all images are selected. If you are
working in the annotation window, ALL selects all text in the window.
It is important to realize that ALL chooses images from the PCMCIA card in
the camera or archive folder, not just images visible in the driver image
window. For example, suppose you choose ALL and then click DELETE.
These actions not only delete the thumbnails from computer memory, but
in addition, these actions delete all images from their source (CAMERA or
FOLDER).
NOTE: The ALL choice from the Select menu performs the same function as the All
button on the driver image window.
N ONE
Deselects all selected images. (This choice deselects all images, but does
not deselect text when you are within the annotation window.)

D. ACQUIRE AS Menu
The ACQUIRE AS menu choices work in concert with the ACQUIRE button,
and determine whether selected images are acquired as pages of contact
sheets (choose CONTACT SHEET), or whether selected images are each
acquired into a separate Photoshop window (choose PHOTO). These
choices affect only acquired images and do not affect the display of the
driver image window. Since PHOTO is the simpler choice, it is described
first below.
Photo
If PHOTO is chosen, the driver creates a new Photoshop document for each
selected thumbnail; each document contains an image at the resolution
specified in the preferences.
CONTACT SHEET
If CONTACT SHEET is chosen, the driver generates one or more Photoshop
windows, each displaying thumbnails. The thumbnails on the contact
sheet document consist of the set of thumbnails selected while in CONTACT
SHEET view in the driver image window.
The following general characteristics apply to all contact sheets.


Each thumbnail is centered inside a square “slide surround.”
The rotation of each image matches its display in the driver image

When a contact sheet is acquired, the name of the resulting document is
determined from this entry, with “–n” appended, where “n” is the number
of the contact sheet. For example, if three contact sheet documents are
required to display the thumbnails and you have entered the DOCUMENT
NAME Friday’s shoot, then the documents would be named Friday’s shoot1, Friday’s shoot-2, and Friday’s shoot-3. Additionally, the caption field of
the Photoshop file information for the document contains the same text.

E. Take Picture Icon
Causes the camera to take a picture and display it in the driver image
window. There may be a very short delay to allow the camera to focus (if
supported by the camera).
To take a picture with this icon the camera must be connected to your
computer, the SOURCE must be CAMERA, and the camera must be on.
Since lighting, rotation, cropping, and naming data are maintained with
each image, the driver must assign initial values for these settings to every
new image when the image is displayed in the driver image window.
Refer to SOURCE Menu, CAMERA in this chapter for an explanation of these
starting values.
NOTES: You can not take a picture while the camera is accessing a PCMCIA card,
that is while the red camera light indicates activity on the PCMCIA card. Therefore, you should not take pictures while images are being saved to archive files.
F. Camera Control Icon
This icon is active only when a camera is attached to the computer;
otherwise, it is dim.

When you click the camera control icon, the following dialog box appears, allowing you to perform utility functions on the attached camera or
on a PCMCIA card in the camera.
The top lines of the dialog box display the camera name, camera serial
number, firmware (the instructions in the camera that control its operation) version, and the current date and time stored on the attached camera. The date and time are displayed in local format; the time appears in a
24-hour format.
NOTE: These data may be different from similar data displayed in the image
information window. The data in this dialog box pertains to the camera currently
connected to your computer, and not necessarily to the camera used to take the
images you are viewing in the driver image window.

LOAD CAMERA FIRMWARE
Click this button to update the firmware in the attached camera. Firmware, the control programming for the camera, is stored in nonvolatile
camera memory. Firmware controls most of the features of the camera.
Before clicking this button, be sure that the camera has a full charge; if it
does not, you may see a message asking you to use the AC battery
charger/adapter and to wait for several minutes. Follow these instructions
and wait (to allow the battery to charge) before clicking this button again.
When you click the LOAD CAMERA FIRMWARE button, the driver looks for a
“BIN” file (a file whose name ends in “BIN”), which must be installed as
described in the chapter “Preparing the Camera and the Computer.” The
contents of the file are transferred from your computer hard disk into the
nonvolatile memory in the camera. An error message is displayed if the
required “BIN” file is not found.
This feature allows you to keep the firmware in the camera up-to-date
without sending the camera to a service center. For example, if an upgrade to the firmware becomes available and you obtain that upgrade
(refer to the appendix “Upgrading Your KODAK Software Driver”), you
can copy that new firmware into the camera with this command. It also
allows you to replace the firmware in the camera with the current version
if the camera exhibits unexpected behavior (such as unusual characters
on the camera back liquid crystal display).
IMPORTANT: If you obtain an updated copy of the BIN file, keep only the most
current version installed on your computer hard disk. This ensures that the current
BIN file is used should you update the camera firmware.
If you are working with a camera that does not currently have a PCMCIA card
installed, updating camera firmware deletes the image in camera memory if one is
present.

After you download firmware, the camera needs one picture to recalibrate
the imager. For this reason the first picture you take after downloading
firmware may not be optimal.
SET CLOCK
When you click the SET CLOCK button, the current date and time are
automatically retrieved from your computer system clock and copied to
the camera. The date and time (in 24-hour format) are maintained in the
camera back by the battery.
Each image is date and time-stamped when made. These data appear in
the driver image window image information area for the selected image.
NOTE: If the date or time are not displayed correctly at the top of the CAMERA
CONTROL dialog box, and if clicking SET CLOCK does not correct the problem, make
sure that your computer system clock is set accurately; then click the SET CLOCK
button again.
ERASE
Click this button to erase the PCMCIA card in the camera. This is the
same as selecting all images in the driver image window when CAMERA is
the source and then clicking the DELETE button.
You may be able to recover images deleted with this button; refer to
RECOVER below for details.
FORMAT
Click this button to format the PCMCIA card in the camera. This action is
similar to formatting a floppy diskette or hard disk on your computer
system. Existing images (and all other data) on the card are permanently
removed and cannot be recovered.

If you have unexplainable problems with the PCMCIA card (perhaps you
are losing images, or you see an “E” followed by a single digit, for example “E2,” on the camera back LCD), acquire or save all images from
the card if possible, then click this button to reformat the PCMCIA card —
all images are lost — and try the card again.
RECOVER
Click this button to recover images deleted from a PCMCIA card in the
camera. The images you recover may have been previously deleted with:
The DELETE button on the outside of the camera back.
The DELETE button in the software driver image window.

The ERASE button on the CAMERA CONTROL dialog box of the software
driver.
You cannot use this option to recover images that were deleted when you
formatted the card with the FORMAT button.


When you click the RECOVER button, every image location on the card is
examined. The most recent image that was in each location is recovered.
The following examples explain the action of this button.
Example 1. Suppose that you have taken ten pictures and then deleted
one. If you recover the PCMCIA card before you take any additional
pictures, you will have all ten images — the original nine images will still
be there, and you will have recovered the tenth image.
Example 2. Suppose that you have taken ten pictures, have deleted
three, and taken another picture. In this case, the newest picture overwrites one of the deleted images. If you recover the PCMCIA card, you
will have ten images — the nine original images, plus the latest picture
you have taken. The exact location of the overwritten deleted image
cannot be predetermined. The picture you deleted that was overwritten
with a new image cannot be recovered.

Example 3. Suppose that you have filled the PCMCIA card with images,
and erased all images by clicking ERASE or by selecting all images in the
driver image window and then clicking the DELETE button. If you recover
the disk with this button before you take any additional pictures you will
have recovered all of the images you erased.
Example 4. Suppose that you begin with a blank PCMCIA card. Over
time you have taken pictures, erased the disk, taken more pictures,
deleted some, taken additional pictures, and so on — never having more
than 20 images on the PCMCIA card. As you take new pictures while
there are still active images on the PCMCIA card, the new images are
written into an empty location on the PCMCIA card; deleted images that
are overwritten become unrecoverable. Suppose you now delete all
images by clicking the ERASE button and take three new pictures; the three
new images will overwrite three images on the PCMCIA card. The exact
location of the overwritten images cannot be predetermined. If you
recover the PCMCIA card, you will recover 20 images. The three new
images will be there plus 17 of the most recent 20 images.

12-BIT ACQUIRE
When “on,” (an “X” appears to the left of this choice when on) provides
12-bit color support into Photoshop.
The camera captures images in 12-bit color for each of the red, green,
and blue planes. However, supported versions of Photoshop receive
images in either 8-bit per color format (24-bits per image) or 16-bit per
color format (48-bits per image).
When this option is off, the driver fits the 12-bits per color from the
camera to the 8-bit per color Photoshop format with limited loss of
luminance or color data. The full resolution of the file is preserved.
When this option is on, the driver expands the 12-bits per color from the
camera to the 16-bits per color Photoshop format. When on, acquiring an
image requires more time and RAM than when off. When on, you have
the full 12-bit dynamic range formatted to 16-bit for precise adjustments.
You must still change the data to 8-bits per color plane for printing,
export, and so on.
SHOW TOOL TIPS
When “on,” (an “X” appears to the left of this choice when on) a one- or

J. Crop Icon
Introduction
You click the Crop icon to establish cropping parameters for selected
images. This section presents an overview of the crop feature, and then
the entire CROP dialog box is explained in detail in the next section.
When you crop images from archive files or from the PCMCIA card in the
camera, the size of the images at their source is not reduced; the full
image is always maintained. Instead of reducing file size, the results of
your cropping activity is a cropping rectangle that is stored with the
image, and that is displayed over the image in any view. For example, if
you take a new image, then establish a cropping rectangle for it, and then
archive the image, the entire image is saved as is the cropping data.
8-28


G
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
After you have established a cropping rectangle for an image (whether an
image on a PCMCIA card in the camera, or an archive image, or a test
shot image), when the image is acquired into Photoshop, the crop rectangle is applied to the image data. Only the image area within the crop
rectangle you have established is acquired. This means that image acquisition is faster, and that the acquired image is smaller than a full-size
image.
You can apply cropping rectangles to one image at a time or to multiple
images simultaneously. If you select multiple images before clicking the
Crop icon, the selection rectangle you create is applied to all of the
selected images. To apply different cropping to different images, do not
select multiple images before clicking the Crop icon; instead, select and
crop each image independently.
Once you have cropped image(s) and left the crop dialog box, you can
change the cropping by selecting the image(s), clicking the Crop icon, and
making the desired changes. However, if multiple images were selected
that do not all have the same crop rectangle, a message appears allowing
you to: remove existing cropping data and revise cropping for all selected
images; or cancel cropping, leaving the cropping data unchanged on the
multiple images.
NOTE: You can not simultaneously crop multiple images from different camera
types. The DCS 410, DCS 420, and EOS•DCS 5 are the same camera type; the
NC 2000, NC 2000e, and EOS•DCS 3 are the same camera type; and the DCS
460, DCS 465, and EOS•DCS 1 are the same camera type.
A checkbox on the crop dialog box allows you to apply the current crop
rectangle to future images you take. This can be helpful in a studio setting
in which a newly established cropping rectangle can be applied to a
series of subsequent images.

M ETHOD: FREEFORM AND FIXED SIZE
Two cropping methods are supported. FREEFORM is the correct choice for
most cropping activity, while FIXED SIZE is appropriate when you know
beforehand the exact output dimensions desired for the image. Make one
of these choices:


Click FREEFORM to reshape the crop rectangle by dragging any edge of
the selection rectangle in any direction as desired.
Click FIXED SIZE, and establish a fixed size for the crop rectangle in the
dialog box that appears. This rectangle can also be reshaped, although
a fixed aspect ratio will be applied to the resultant rectangle. The
driver will adjust the resolution to accommodate the new rectangle.
In either case, when the cursor is moved inside the cropping rectangle it
changes to a hand cursor to allow you to repositioning the entire rectangle.
When you switch between these two, previous cropping data are lost, and
a new crop rectangle is established.
S IZE
The SIZE button is enabled only when the METHOD is FIXED SIZE. Enter the
final output size desired for the selected images, in units— either inches
or centimeters — as established in the preferences.

After you enter values, when you click OK, a crop rectangle is centered
on the image with pixel dimensions equivalent to the product of the
default resolution (a preference setting) and the final output dimensions
you entered in the FINAL OUTPUT SIZE dialog box. If this calculation yields a
result that is larger than the pixel dimensions of the image, the driver
reduces the resolution. To change the size of the final output while FIXED
SIZE is on, click the SIZE button again and change the WIDTH and/or HEIGHT
values.
As the crop rectangle is re-sized, the output resolution will be recalculated to maintain the final output size, where the resolution equals the
number of pixels divided by the dimensions (in inches or centimeters).
L EFT, TOP, W IDTH, and HEIGHT
Type values into these text boxes to establish absolute numeric values in
pixels for the top left corner (the origin point) of the selection rectangle,

SIZE. They indicate pixels that will be in the acquired image. (They do not
control output size; use the WIDTH and HEIGHT text boxes on the FINAL
OUTPUT SIZE dialog box described above to control output size.)
F IX ASPECT R ATIO
If you turn “on” this checkbox (an X appears in the check box to the left of
this option when on), the driver holds the width and height in proportion
while you adjust the dimensions of the cropping rectangle. When on, if
you drag an edge of the cropping rectangle, the driver applies the update
to both dimensions of the crop box, keeping the aspect ratio in proportion. A graphic of a small link appears to the right of the WIDTH and HEIGHT
fields when the option is on.
NOTE: When FIXED SIZE is selected, FIXED ASPECT RATIO is always on.

FINAL OUTPUT
The data displayed by the values in the final output area provide the
width, height, resolution, and file size of the cropped area of the images.
REMOVE
Removes the cropping rectangles from all selected images.
CANCEL
Exits the dialog box, canceling changes you may have made to all options.
OK
Exits the dialog box, accepting all changes made to all options.
IMPORTANT: If multiple images were selected before cropping, clicking OK
applies the selected crop parameters to all selected images.
CROP NEW I MAGES
AFTER
SHUTTER RELEASE
If you turn “on” this checkbox (an X appears in the check box to the left of
this option when on), the most recent cropping rectangle that you have
created is superimposed on all new images you take; when “off,” no
cropping rectangle is applied to new images.
Navigation Buttons
If you select multiple images before you click the Crop icon, any changes
to the crop rectangle applies to all of the selected images. For this reason,
the CROP dialog box provides navigation buttons (identical in function to
those in the driver image window), which appear beneath the image. You
click these navigation buttons (first, previous, next, and last) to scroll
through the selected images; the current cropping rectangle appears on
each image as you scroll through them. This allows you to determine if
the cropping rectangle you have created provides the desired cropping

action for all of the selected images. You can also type a specific image
number in the navigation edit ‘go to’ box in the middle of the navigation
bar to display that image. When you click OK the current cropping
rectangle is applied to all images in the selection set.
K. Lighting Menu
These options apply only to color images, and not to images taken with
monochrome camera models. The lighting menu provides a simple, direct
method of quickly applying one of several lighting choices to your image.
Then later, once the image has been acquired, you can refine it if needed
in Photoshop.
NOTES: In addition to the choices on this menu, the driver provides a clickbalance lighting tool described in the next section. Lighting can be set with either
lighting option. However, lighting choices are mutually exclusive; you cannot
apply one type of lighting and then refine it with another. Instead, each time you
apply any color balancing, your previous choice is lost, and only the current
lighting setting is applied.
Click-balance is always the preferred method of applying color balancing to
images. If you have applied click-balance to an image, you must turn it off (as
described in the next section), before you can apply a choice from this lighting
menu.
After selecting images, you should select an option from the lighting menu
to correspond to the original lighting conditions under which you made
the images. Choices are DAYLIGHT, TUNGSTEN, FLUORESCENT, and FLASH. The
option you select is stored with the images on the PCMCIA card in the
8-34

camera or with the selected image archive files. Changes you make in
these settings are visible on the images displayed on your computer
monitor.
The choice you make is used for color correction by the driver when the
image is acquired. The menu provides the following choices.
DAYLIGHT
Uses daylight color-correction values when acquiring the
image.
TUNGSTEN
Uses tungsten color-correction values when acquiring the
image.
NOTE: The Tiffen Hot Mirror filter is always recommended when
shooting under tungsten lighting. A filter for one size lens is
supplied; filters for other size lenses are available. Without the
filter, color results may not be very accurate with a tungsten light
source; however, acceptable color rendition can be obtained with
this filter under tungsten lighting.
FLUORESCENT Uses fluorescent color-correction values when acquiring the
image.
Flash
Uses flash color-correction values when acquiring the
image.
L. Click-Balance Tool
Unlike the lighting menu which provides distinct choices to match
lighting conditions under which the image was made, the click-balance
tool provides a more refined method of color balancing, and is always the
preferred method of applying color balancing to images
The ‘checkbox’ appears on the left of the tool, and the ‘eyedropper’ is on
the right.
 Reference — Kodak Driver Software G 8-35
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
NOTE: In addition to this tool, the driver provides a lighting menu described in
the last section. Lighting can be set with either lighting option. However, lighting
choices are mutually exclusive; you cannot apply one type of lighting and then
refine it with another. Instead, each time you apply any color balancing, your
previous choice is lost, and only the current lighting setting is applied. Clickbalance is always the preferred method of applying color balancing to images.
You use this tool to set color balancing for a single image (selected or
unselected) or for a set of selected images. This icon provides an additional type of color balancing to those provided on the lighting menu
described in the last section. This feature is always the preferred option for
color balancing an image.
To activate this feature, first click its checkbox “on” (an X appears in the
check box to the left of this option when on). Then, when you move the
cursor over an image in any view (CONTACT SHEET, PREVIEW, or TEST SHOT),
the cursor changes to an eyedropper cursor.
You then click the eyedropper on an area of the image that is white or
light gray (an area that is not overexposed), or click a point that should be
white or light gray. White balance values for the entire image are calculated based on averaging a 16 x 16 pixel square around the point at
which you have clicked.
After that single click, the eyedropper cursor is no longer available,
although the click-balance tool remains on. If the adjustment was not
satisfactory, click the cursor on the eyedropper portion of the clickbalance tool; this changes the cursor to the eyedropper cursor again. Then
click another point in the image. Repeat the process as needed
When using the click-balance tool, we suggest that you view the image
you want to balance in PREVIEW view, since it displays a larger image and
therefore allows you to find a click point more easily. With the image you
want displayed in PREVIEW view, move the cursor to a white or light gray
8-36

area where each of the red (R), green (G), and blue (B) color values
displayed below the image are as high as possible, but lower than 255.
After you click, you view the result of the change immediately on the
image.
To apply the same click-balance settings to multiple images at the same
time, select the images from the contact sheet, and then view them in
PREVIEW, where they appear as a stack of images. Now when you clickbalance the top image, the color balancing resulting from your actions is
applied to all of the selected images in the stack and is stored with all of
the images. Use the navigation tool to move through the stack of previewed images to ensure that the color balancing is appropriate for all
images.
You can change the click-balance point by repeating the procedures
described above and clicking a different point; or you can remove the
click-balance setting for one or more images by selecting them and
clicking the click-balance checkbox “off.”
NOTES: When you click, you may see a message indicating that ONE OF THE COLORS
IS SATURATED, AND ASKING YOU TO CLICK ANOTHER POINT FOR BALANCING. As prompted,
click another point.
If there is no white or light gray area in the image, take a photograph of a neutral
gray or white card (for example KODAK Gray Cards, Publication No. R-27) under
the same lighting conditions that existed when the image was taken. Then select
the image of the card as well as all other images taken under the same lighting
conditions. Follow the procedures described above to set a click-balance point,
however, to set the correct value, click the special cursor on the image of the
card, rather than one of the other images.
The checkbox for this tool may contain a minus sign “–” instead of being blank or
containing an “X.” The minus sign appears when you have selected multiple
images and they do not all have the same lighting settings.

The driver image window presents a visual indication that you recorded a
sound file with the camera. A single small sound icon appears above the
upper right corner of the image you took before recording sound.
When the image is copied to a folder, the sound files associated with the
image are also copied, with each separate recording becoming a separate

N. ACQUIRE Button
You click the ACQUIRE button to acquire selected images or a contact sheet
into Photoshop; the setting of the ACQUIRE AS menu determines what is
acquired:


If the ACQUIRE AS menu is set to PHOTO (or the view is TEST SHOT), then
each selected image opens into a separate Photoshop window. Your
annotation (if present) and the image information are acquired and
placed in the caption area of the Photoshop file information field.
If the ACQUIRE AS menu is set to CONTACT SHEET, then one or more
Photoshop documents is generated; the documents display a thumbnail of each of the images selected in the driver image window. Refer
to “ACQUIRE AS Menu” in this chapter for complete details.
Acquiring images or contact sheets does not affect images at their source.
You can also double-click the image(s) or preview as an alternate to the
two-step process of selecting an image and then clicking the ACQUIRE
button.
IMPORTANT: If you have not made any changes to the acquired image while in
Photoshop, and you click the close box of the acquired image window or choose
CLOSE from the Photoshop FILE menu or quit Photoshop, the window will close
without asking you if you want to save it. Therefore, be sure you save any
acquired images you do not want to lose before closing their windows or quitting
Photoshop.

O. COPY TO Button
You click thIS button to copy highlighted images, and associated sound
files if any, to your computer hard disk. The SOURCE can be either CAMERA
or FOLDER.
When this button is clicked, a save dialog box appears. Each image file
and each sound file from the source becomes a separate file on your
computer hard disk. The filenames are generated by the driver unless you
have renamed the files (click the Rename icon) in which case your names
are used.
The DELETE ORIGINALS option on the dialog box, if checked, deletes the
image files and associated sound files at their source after they are copied
to your computer hard disk. A confirmation box appears before the
images are deleted. (Deleted images include all selected images, even
those selected images that may have temporarily scrolled out of view in
the image area of the driver image window.)
Archive Image File Format
Images in these archive files created with the COPY TO button are composed of uninterpolated data; they have not been “acquired” into
Photoshop. This means they contain the raw, native data generated from
the imager in the camera back. As a result, images you save to your
computer hard disk by clicking COPY TO should be read only with the
driver provided by Kodak. (See the IMPORTANT paragraph below).
In addition to complete image data, an image archive file includes: a
thumbnail, all text you have typed in the annotation area, camera settings
8-40

from the image information window, image naming data, image color
balance data, image cropping data, and image rotation data.
The Specifications appendix lists file sizes for these image files for your
camera.
IMPORTANT: Do not open image archive files (files that you create by copying
images to your computer hard disk with the COPY TO button) with Photoshop or
other image software and then resave the data with the same filename. The image
archive files you create with the COPY TO button contain several sections — one
section with a TIFF version of the thumbnail, and then another section with the
image data. When you open the file with Photoshop, only the TIFF thumbnail is
opened, and if saved, only the thumbnail is saved — not the image data. For this
reason, you should only open these files from within the driver image window
using the CHOOSE FOLDER choice of the SOURCE menu as described in this chapter;
this ensures that you obtain the image data.
P. DELETE Button
You click the DELETE button to delete selected images from their source —
either the camera or an image archive file. A dialog box warns you that
images will be deleted. Selected images include images you have clicked
that may have temporarily scrolled out of view in the image area of the
driver image window.
NOTES: The DELETE button on the camera back does not function when the
camera is connected to a computer; use this DELETE button on the software driver
image window to delete images in this configuration.
You may be able to recover images you delete with this button; refer to the
“Recover” button section of this chapter.

You can type short descriptive material in the annotation area; then use
the mouse or arrow keys to move through text once entered. The text is
saved with the image on the PCMCIA card or in an archive file, but not
with a test shot image unless you save the image.
The image information window includes, from top to bottom: the camera
model that took the image, the camera serial number, the image width
and height (in pixels), the date and time (displayed in 24-hour format) the
image was made, and the image counter (the exposure number displayed
by the camera when the image was made).
The remaining information in the area depends on which camera was
used to take the selected picture. This information can include: ISO,
aperture, shutter speed, lens, and other settings such as the approximate
camera-to subject distance in meters (if supported by the camera and
lens).
The shutter speed and camera aperture are shown as they appear in the
camera LCD panel and viewfinder. The date and time are maintained by
the battery in the camera system. You update the date and time with the
SET CLOCK choice of the CAMERA CONTROL dialog box as described in this
chapter.
The text from the annotation area and the image information window are
obtained when you acquire the image into Photoshop. These data are
placed into the caption area of the file information for the image.
The number of character »in the annotation window plus the number of
characters in the image information window must total 255 or less. Some
cameras display more lines in the image information window than others;
for this reason, with some cameras you may not be able to fill the annotation window with your text. However, you can delete some lines from the
image information window by clicking on the line (to select the entire
line), and pressing the keyboard delete key. This works to delete all lines
except: Camera; Serial #; Width; Height; Date; and Time.

The items in this area allow you to navigate through images. From left to
right the controls navigate you to images as follows: “first” image; “previous” image; type a number then click outside the box (or press the Enter
Key) to move to that specific image; “next” image; “last” image. These
controls work differently in CONTACT SHEET view and in PREVIEW/CROP.
CONTACT SHEET View
Suppose that you are working in CONTACT SHEET view with images consecutively numbered from 1-30, and that you have selected only image
number 5. In this situation clicking: “first” takes you to image 1; clicking
“previous” takes you to image 4; clicking “next” takes you to image 6,
and clicking “last” takes you to image 30.
Suppose that you are again working with images consecutively numbered
from 1-30, and that you have selected five images: 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25.
Now if you click one of the four navigation icons, all of the five selected
images are deselected and a single image is selected as follows. If you
click the “first” icon, image 1 is selected. If you click the “previous” icon,
image 4 is selected. If you click the “next” icon, image 26 is selected. If
you click the “last” icon, image 30 is selected.
PREVIEW View or CROP Dialog

images. For example if you are working with images consecutively
numbered from 1-30, and you have selected images 5, 10, 15, 20, and
25. Suppose that you are in preview or crop, and looking at image number 15. Now if you click the “first” icon, image 5 is selected. If you click
the “previous” icon, image 10 is selected. If you click the “next” icon,
image 20 is selected. If you click the “last” icon, image 25 is selected.
These icons are very important for moving through the selected subset of
images to ensure that the color balancing or cropping that you that you
are applying produces the desired effect with all of the subset of images.
U. Select All Icon
When you are working with images, clicking this icon selects all images
at their source (either the PCMCIA card in the camera or the archive
folder, depending on the current source); or when you are working in the
annotation window, selects all text. Performs the same function as choosing ALL in the Photoshop SELECT menu.
V. Number of Images Selected
This area shows the number of images currently selected out of the total
number of images at the source.

Y. Thumbnail/Preview Size Menu
This menu provides three sizes from which you can choose the desired
viewing size for thumbnails or previews. These settings only affect the
image size displayed on your monitor; they do not affect the size of the
image at its source or the size of the image acquired.
The exact size of the thumbnails in pixels depends on the camera and the
printer resolution specified in the contact sheet preferences panel.
You can choose a small size when navigating through images, and then a
large size to view the detail of an image or to perform color balancing.
Small sizes load faster than larger sizes.

You cannot initiate or terminate a script in the driver. Instead, you
must start recording before you enter the driver, and you must stop
recording after you leave the driver, when back in Photoshop.
While in the driver, actions can be recorded while in CONTACT SHEET or
PREVIEW, but not while in TEST SHOT view.
When appropriate, the action applies to the selected image or images
(by their image number, not name).
The driver image window is not displayed during action playback.
As with all actions, you can view the commands recorded by the
driver; this can help you understand how the driver produces actions.
The same action can record differently depending on the state of the
driver when you begin recording; however, the actions should perform the same.
As with any scripting, you may need to experiment to ensure that you
are obtaining the desired results with driver actions.
Several examples of the use of actions with the driver image window
follow.
Example-1: You want a script to acquire all images from a PCMCIA card

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
EOS•DCS 1 Lenses: Lenses behave differently with the EOS•DCS 1
from a conventional EOS 35mm SLR. Although actual aperture values
and focal lengths remain the same, the effective image area with the
EOS•DCS 1 is only 18.4 mm x 27.6 mm compared to the conventional 35 mm format of 24 mm x 36 mm.
Since the EOS•DCS 1 image is smaller than a conventional 35 mm
frame, it must be enlarged by approximately 25% to achieve the same
output size (in terms of image height) on screen or on hard copy.
Under this condition, the “effective” focal length of any lens used with
the EOS•DCS 1 is approximately 1.3 times greater than when used
with a conventional EOS 35 mm SLR. Use the following chart as a
quick reference for effective focal lengths of EF lenses when used with
the EOS•DCS 1.

Downloading Software Drivers Electronically
NOTE: The availability of software downloading service described in this section
may vary from area to area.
When Kodak prepares updated versions of the software drivers for the
camera, it makes those updates available electronically on a public ftp
server. Downloading an update from this network is the quickest way to
obtain the most current driver. You receive the driver directly — in a
timely way — at your convenience.
Downloading a driver requires: a modem, communications software, a
telephone line, and access to this server. These items are not supplied by
Kodak.
You access this ftp server using one of the following methods:
 Via FTP at “ftp ftp.kodak.com/pub/photo-cd/drivers/”
Log-in as “anonymous” using your complete e-mail address as a
password. The file “Descriptions.txt” in the drivers directory lists all

files by product, version, release date, and so on. Find and download
the driver for the product you use.
 Via the World Wide Web at:
“http://www.kodak.com/productInfo/technicalInfo/
driverSupport.shtml”
This page contains links to driver listings by product type. Find and
download the driver for the product you use by following the
hyperlinks.
 Via FTP (or WWW) through America Online (AOL) or CompuServe.
A driver description index is posted on AOL (keyword Kodak, and
then check the Kodak Information Library) and on CompuServe
(“Go Kodak” and then check Library 1). Instructions are also posted
describing how to access the Kodak ftp site through the on-line
service ftp utility. Find and download the driver for the product you
use.
We encourage you to visit our driver site on a regular basis.
Once you have obtained a driver, continue at “Installing the Software
Driver” below.
Obtaining Software Updates Directly from
Kodak
You can order diskettes containing current versions of the KODAK Driver
for Adobe Photoshop Software (Macintosh) and/or the KODAK Driver for
TWAIN-Compliant Software.
If you obtain software directly from Kodak, install it as described in the
next section.

Installing the Software Driver
This section describes how to update the driver on your hard disk, and
how to update the firmware in your camera using the updated driver files.
The section assumes that you have obtained driver files as described
earlier in this appendix.
1. Complete all the steps in “Installing the KODAK Driver” in Chapter 4,
except that if the files have been downloaded from a network —
instead of obtained on a diskette — access the files from the location
of the downloaded data (since there is no diskette).
2. Access the new driver by completing all the steps in “Accessing the
Camera from the Driver” in Chapter 4.
3. Update your camera with the new firmware by completing all the
steps in “Updating Camera Firmware” in Chapter 4.
The software and camera are now ready for use.

Appendix F — Using an Infrared
Camera
This appendix provides information for customers who have purchased
the infrared (IR) version of the camera.
This appendix assumes that you are familiar with infrared photography,
and provides only the following introductory material specific to the IR
version of the camera.




The camera is a monochrome camera.
Unlike other camera models that incorporate a cover glass that blocks
infrared light, the IR camera has a standard cover glass that allows
infrared light to reach the imager.
The spectral response of the IR camera is 420 to 1,000 nanometers at
greater than 5% quantum efficiency.
The table below suggests initial values for several lighting conditions
using exposure compensation. (If you were to shoot outside without
exposure compensation, the results would be significantly overexposed.)

Refer to the Canon EOS-1 N instruction manual for additional information about infrared photography.
Many publications contain information about IR photography and IR
filters. For example, the “KODAK Photographic Filters Handbook,”
CAT No E 152 8108, includes a variety of data on Kodak filters,
including filters intended for use in IR photography. These filters can
be used with the IR camera. This publication can be ordered by
contacting Silver Pixel Press at 1-800-368-6257.
