Tips for Better Images!
Before your child uses the camera independently, we recommend that you first thoroughly read
these instructions. Explain to your child how to use the camera and then practice taking pictures
with your child.
1. Use Bright Light Indoors
Make sure there is a bright light source when taking indoor pictures. The light source (sun,
lamp or window) should be above or facing your picture subject. Do not place your picture
subject in front of the light source since the picture subject will look dark in your photo.
2. Hold Still
Make sure the picture taker and the picture subject aren’t moving. Also be sure your child
holds the camera with two hands.
3. Proper Distance
Center the picture subject on the LCD screen. The picture subject should be no closer than
4 feet (1.2 m) from camera. For flash pictures, make sure your picture subject is no further
than 7.5 feet away (2.2 m).
