Using the Auto and Manual Photography Modes
The digital camera offers two photography modes: Auto
and Manual
.
Auto Photo Mode is the simplest to operate and is recommended for beginners. Photos in Auto mode are captured by pressing the shutter button and letting the digital
camera adjust settings to match lighting conditions, focus range, and other environmental factors automatically.
Manual Photo Mode allows users to manually adjust camera settings such as exposure and white balance, allowing skilled users to fine-tune settings to suit conditions,
and to achieve a variety of special photographic effects.
If an SD card is not inserted in the camera, photos are stored on the camera’s internal
memory. When an SD card is inserted, the camera reads and writes to the SD card, not
to the internal memory. Remove the SD card to access the camera’s internal memory.
Using the Mode Dial
Turn the mode dial at the top of the camera to change the camera’s working mode at
any time.
Align the desired
mode with the camera mode indicator

5 File Names & Printing
Folder Names
The digital camera automatically creates a directory of folders in the internal memory or
SD card that it uses to organize photos, video clips, and other information.
100C3045
Folder Example:
Serial Number
i.
ii.
iii.
iv.
v.
Folder numbers start from 100.
Each folder holds up to 999 files. If a photo is taken when the folder with
highest folder number contains a picture file number equal to or greater than
0999, the camera creates a new folder by adding one to the current folder
number. For example, if the current folder is “100C3045”, the new folder is
named “101C3045”).
The maximum folder number is 999.
If the highest folder number is 999 and highest file number exceeds 0999,
the camera will display the warning message “FILE NUMBER OVER”.
If “FILE NUMBER OVER” appears, follow one of the two methods below:
a) Format the memory. The folder number and file number are initialized
and renumbered from 100 and 0001 respectively.
b) Plug in a new memory card.
— 28 —
File Names & Printing
File Names
The camera automatically assigns a file name to each photo and video clip captured.
File names start with “DSCI” and are followed by a four-digit number that increases in
sequence.
File Example:
DSCI0001.JPG
Extension File Name
Serial Number
i.
ii.
Each folder can hold up to 999 pictures. If a photo is taken when the current
folder contains a file numbered 0999, the DSC creates a new folder and
stores the new image in the new folder.
File numbering starts from 0001 when a new folder is created.

Understanding Camera Memory and Storage
Internal Memory
The digital camera is equipped with internal memory. If an SD card is not
installed in the camera, all photos and video clips recorded by the camera will
be stored in the internal memory. If an SD card is installed, photos and video
clips are stored on the SD card.
Optional SD Memory Card
Photos, video clips, and other information recorded by the camera is stored
on the SD card using the Design rule for Camera File system (DCF) protocol.
The DCF protocol is designed to accommodate file and data exchange between digital cameras and other devices.
DCF Protocol
The DCF protocol defines the format for image file data as well as the directory structure for the memory card. Photos that are taken by a DCF camera
can be viewed on DCF-compatible cameras from other manufacturers.
Using the Camera in PC-Cam Mode
When connected to a PC using the USB cable, your camera can function as a PC
camera, enabling others to view you over the Internet using chat and messaging software such as MSN Messenger.
Setting Up PC-Cam Mode
1. Connect your camera to your PC with the USB cable as described on the
previous page.
2. Put your camera on the top of your PC monitor or another flat surface.
3. Switch the mode dial to PC-Cam.
4. Open the web conferencing application, such as NetMeeting. Follow the
application's on-screen instructions, or refer to its Help section for operating.
NOTE:
You must install the USB driver before you
can use the camera in PC-Cam mode.

SAFETY TIPS AND MAINTENANCE
SAFETY TIPS AND MAINTENANCE
Cleaning the camera body:
1. Please use a soft dry cloth to clean the camera.
Cleaning the lens, viewfinder and LCD:
1. Blow off dirt or dust with a blower or canned air.
2. Gently wipe the lens, viewfinder and/or LCD with a micro-fiber cloth.
3. To remove dirt or residue, moisten the cloth with lens cleaning fluid and gently wipe the lens,
viewfinder and/or LCD.
CAUTION: Do not apply the fluid directly onto the lens, viewfinder or LCD.
Cleaning the battery contacts:
As a matter of routine operation and handling, should any debris or foreign contaminant deposit itself on
the battery contacts in the camera and/or on the batteries, follow steps below to clean the battery
contacts to ensure proper electrical operation:
1. Wet the tip of a cotton bud/swab with rubbing alcohol and squeeze the excess alcohol from the bud/
swab.
2. Wipe the battery contacts inside the camera battery compartment and both ends of the batteries
lightly with the damp bud.
3. Allow the contacts to dry before placing batteries in the camera.
Caution:
1) Do not press hard during cleaning, as this will cause damage to the battery contacts.
2) Do not use water to clean the contacts, as this will increase the chance of oxidation.
3) Do not use Acetone or Nail Polish remover to clean the contacts as this may adversely affect camera
operation.
