USING THE SELF TIMER
Slow Synchro Shutter Shooting
This technique allows you to sync the Flash with the Slow Shutter Shooting. In
most cases, if the flash is used in a very dark setting the background turns out dark,
but when using the Forced Flash settings the exposure time lengthens (Slow
Synchro Shutter Shooting) and brightens the background. The use of a tripod is
recommended to prevent blurring.
Use the self-timer when you are recording an image of yourself or a group
that includes you. Also, this feature will eliminate blurring.
Turn the DIAL SWITCH to PHOTO MODE and then
turn the POWER ON.

The flash will automatically go off in a dark

go off. This can be used for most settings.
Turns off the flash even in dark scenes. Use
it for night scenes or wherever you are
prohibited from using a flash. Please note
that these shots may become blurred due
to very slow shutter speed. ’No Flash’ is the
automatic setting in CONTINUOUS or
VIDEO CLIP mode.
Auto red-eye reduction
Forced Flash
Use this setting when recording with a flash
at night or indoors. The flash will go off
once and will go off again when the
picture is taken. This will help to reduce
red-eye phenomenon.
The flash will go off at any time no matter
the brightness. Use it when the
background is bright or when you are
shooting against the sun. When used in

becomes longer, changing into Slow

WHITE BALANCE
FYI
White Balance and Color Temperatures.
Light comes in a range of colors from high-temperature sources like the sun which
are bluer to low-temperature incandescent light bulbs which are redder. The human
eye adapts to these differences automatically, so things usually look the same color
to us under most lighting conditions. The camera's light sensors however, must
sometimes be set to reproduce the truest colors under certain conditions.
AUTOMATIC WHITE BALANCE
In this mode the camera automatically senses the light source and corrects
the colors so you get the same white in any lighting situation. We
recommend that you regularly use the camera in this mode.
Turn the DIAL SWITCH to PHOTO MODE and then
turn the POWER ON.

It makes white look the same color in any situation. The camera has two
white balance modes; automatic and manual. In manual mode you can
change the color settings according to your own needs.

You can select specialized white balance settings to achieve truer colors in
certain conditions; DAYLIGHT, CLOUDY, INCANDESCENT, and
FLUORESCENT.
Turn the DIAL SWITCH to PHOTO MODE and then
turn the POWER ON.
HINT
Effective use of manual WHITE BALANCE.
❏ Pictures taken under fluorescent light tend to turn out greenish. Use the
FLUORESCENT setting to correct for this.
❏ Incandescent light tends to make subjects appear reddish-yellow. Using the
DAYLIGHT setting will allow reddish yellow colors of sunset to stay that way.
LIGHT SENSITIVITY
A roll of film loaded in a camera has a fixed light sensitivity, but the digital
camera is more flexible. You can change the light sensitivity for a specific
purpose any time manually or let the camera select it automatically.
FYI
In general, setting higher (ISO) light sensitivity allows for easier focusing and less
chance of blurring. However your photos will appear grainier and you will lose color
richness. Think about the shooting conditions and the results you want before you
set the ISO.

power on. If the red light is still on, bring the camera to the shop where
you bought it or the EPSON service center.
AFTER TAKING A PHOTO THROUGH THE LCD MONITOR THE DISPLAY
PANEL DISAPPEARS.
check
Is Power Saving turned on?

power saving is working properly. You can extend the time it takes
before going into sleep status.
You can also turn it off. (See page 49.)
check
Are your batteries strong enough?
When the batteries are low, the LCD monitor will turn off briefly while the

THE POWER SWITCHES OFF AUTOMATICALLY.
check
Is Power Saving turned on?
Turn off the Power Save function. (See page 49.)
IT TAKES A LONG TIME TO TAKE A PHOTO.
check
Did you press the SHUTTER button completely?
Usually you should press the SHUTTER button halfway and hold it to set
the focus, then press the rest of the way to take a photo. (See page 14.)
When you press the SHUTTER button fully all at once, it takes time to focus
and set the exposure before the shutter releases. It may seem to take
longer than when you do it in two steps.
THE LCD MONITOR IS HARD TO SEE.
check
THE LCD MONITOR DISPLAYS VERTICAL LINES.
check

When the camera is connected to a computer, the LCD monitor is
disabled.
Have you tried adjusting the LCD monitor brightness level?
Adjust the "LCD Brightness" control. (See page 49.)
Did you point the camera toward very bright light?
When you use the LCD monitor to take photos, any very bright light may
affect the CCD and cause the lines to appear on your screen. They will
NOT appear in the recorded image itself.
NO IMAGE APPEARS ON THE TV SCREEN WHEN THE CAMERA IS
CONNECTED.
check
Is the power switched on?
See [Camera power won't turn on] on page 54 and check the camera.
check
Is the camera connected correctly to the TV?
Check that the camera-AV cable is connected properly at both ends.
(See page 24.)

Is the TV set up to recognize the camera as a picture source?
Check that the TV/video selector on your TV is on [video]. See your TV
instruction booklet for details.
check

IMAGE PROBLEMS
check
Avoid using the flash for close-ups.
Set the control for NO FLASH. (See page 19.) If the image is too dark,
increase the light sensitivity setting. (See page 33.)
check
Adjust the exposure control in the - direction.
You can increase brightness by adjusting the Ev control. (See page 34.)
IMAGES ARE OUT OF FOCUS
check

To use auto-focus, place the subject in the center of the viewfinder and
press the SHUTTER button halfway. (See page 14.)
check
Is the camera in the right distance mode setting?
Be sure to take photos no closer than 50 cm from the camera in NORMAL
mode. For distances from 11-50 cm, use the MACRO mode. (See page
30.)
check
check
check
Is the lens dirty?
Use a lens cleaning brush or gently blow on the lens to free it of dirt. Then
blow on it and wipe it with a soft dry cloth. (See page 52.)
Is the captured image blurred?
Hold the camera in the proper position when shooting, with your lower,
support arm close to your body. (See page 14.) Use a tripod for night
views and other low light situations.
Did you touch the lens during shooting?
If you touch the lens during shooting, the lens may become dirty and
the picture may come out blurred. Holding the camera in the proper
position will help you in not touching the lens. (See page 14.) If the lens
becomes dirty in any way, use a soft dry cloth to wipe it. (See page 52.)
THE IMAGE IS TOO DARK.
check
Use the flash.
See page 19 to learn about the range of the flash. If you use external
flash sources, refer to the device's instruction booklet.
check
Adjust the exposure control in the + direction.
You can brighten shots by adjusting the Ev control. (See page 34.)
PART OF THE IMAGE IS MISSING.
check
Was your finger covering the lens?
When you take photos using the viewfinder, it is possible that fingers,
straps or pieces of clothing may be partially covering the lens.
check
Are you looking straight through the viewfinder?
You can misjudge the composition of the picture if you are looking
through the viewfinder at an angle or holding the camera away from
your face.
check
Is the subject of the picture very close to the camera?
When the object is less than 1 meter from the lens, you may be
experiencing parallax problems. (See page 17.) You may want to
compose the shot using the LCD monitor. (See page 15.)
THE IMAGE COLOR IS WRONG.
check
Is the white balance set correctly?
• If you use the AUTO setting under fluorescent lighting conditions, the
image is balanced only for green light. Instead, use the FLUORESCENT
setting and the camera will adjust to the specific florescent source in
your scene.
• Use the INCANDESCENT, when you want to keep the reddish orange
hues that come from shooting at sunset.
PRINTING PROBLEMS
See page 44 or your printer instruction booklet for details.
check
Select a higher light sensitivity setting.
This is especially useful when it's impossible to use a flash. (See page 33.)
THE IMAGE IS TOO BRIGHT.
check
56
Did you have to point the camera toward a strong bright light?
Move your subject so the light is behind the camera.
