• Setting the Image Size and Quality
Picture resolution refers to the number of pixels in a digital picture.
Picture quality depends on the JPEG file compression that the camera
applies when the picture is taken. Higher resolution and less compression
produces better quality but occupies more memory space. Smaller size
pictures and normal quality are easier to email while larger size and fine
quality are better for printing.

• DPOF (Digital Print Order Format)
”DPOF” stands for “Digital Print Order Format”, which is a format for
recording on a memory card or other medium which captured images
and how many copies should be printed. Then you can print on a DPOFcompatible printer or at a professional print service from the memory
card in accordance with the file name and number of copies settings
recorded on the card.
With this camera, you should always select images by viewing them on
the LCD screen. Do not specify images by file name without viewing the

NOTE:
Print settings are configured for images only. Make sure there are no video clips
or other file besides images in the memory before printing, otherwise, an error

7 Using the SD (Secure Digital) Card
• Using the SD Card
Your camera comes with built-in flash memory for storing pictures
and video clips. You can expand the memory using a commercially
available SD card (up to 1GB). The camera senses whether a memory
card is inserted, and automatically saves pictures and video clips
accordingly. Note that you cannot save pictures or video clips to the
built-in flash memory while a memory card is installed in the camera.
See pages 72 to 74 for storage capacities.
Memory Card Precautions
1. Use only an SD memory card with this camera.
2. Electrostatic charge, electrical noise, and other phenomena can
cause data corruption or even loss. Always make sure that you
always back up important data on other media (MO disc, computer
hard drive, etc.).
3. If a memory card starts to behave abnormally, you can restore
normal operation by reformatting it. However, we recommend that
you always take along more than one memory card whenever using
the camera far away from the home or office.
4. We recommend that you format a memory card before using it for
the first time after purchasing it, or whenever the card you are using
seems to be the cause of abnormal pictures. Remember to format
a memory card if it was used in another digital camera or other
devices.
Polaroid Digital Camera User Guide

51
IMPORTANT!
• Make sure you turn off the camera before inserting or removing a memory card.
• Be sure to orient the card correctly when inserting it. Never try to force a
memory card into the slot when you feel resistance.
• SD memory cards have a write protection switch that you can use to
protect files from accidental deletion. However, you must remove the write
protection whenever you want to record new files onto it, format it, or
delete its files.
• Files contained in the SD card recorded by other cameras may conflict with
your camera, and valuable data in your existing SD card may be distorted or
lost when the card is inserted in your camera. We strongly recommend the
user to use a NEW or formatted SD card for your camera. The manufacturer
is not liable for losing or corrupting any valuable data or files in your SD card
due to your improper operation.
• As tests prove, your camera works best with popular brands of memory
cards such as Polaroid, SanDisk, Panasonic, Lexar and TOSHIBA. Consider
using these cards for best performance.
Inserting the SD Card
Turn off the camera. Insert the SD card and ensure the card is inserted

Removing the SD Card

IMPORTANT!
• Never insert any other object into the camera’s SD card slot. Doing so
creates the risk of damage to the camera and card.
• Should water or any foreign objects ever get into the card slot,
immediately turn off the camera, remove the batteries and contact your
dealer or nearest service provider.
• Never remove a card from the camera while the camera is powered on.
Doing so can cause the recording operation to fail, and even damage the
memory card.
Polaroid Digital Camera User Guide

53
Formatting the SD Card
Formatting the SD card erases all files stored in it, including the
protected ones. Removing the SD card during formatting may damage
the card.
1. Insert an SD card into the camera card slot.
2. Turn on the camera.
3. Procedures are the same as for formatting the internal memory.
Refer to “Formatting the Internal Memory” on page 17 for details.
IMPORTANT!
• SD cards formatted in another camera, computer or other devices may not
work properly. It is recommended to format SD cards with your camera.
• Note that the data deleted by a format operation cannot be recovered.
Make sure you do not have any useful data currently stored on a memory
card before you format it.
