USING THE IN-BUILT CAMERA
ECO2s running Software Version 2.07 and below have
a built-in camera. The lens is on the top back of the
case. The camera is a fairly simple one and can be
used to take pictures of things you might like to use
for personalized icons or visual scenes.


For best results your ECO should be upright
on its stand, mounted on a table stand or
mounted on a wheelchair. If the ECO is
lying flat the camera lens will not be able to
"see" much.
You cannot take pictures, download them to
a computer and print them out as you can
with a full-blown digital camera.
The camera will zoom in and allow you to
pan in any direction.
You can also hold a real photograph 6-8
inches away from the lens and take a
picture of the photo.

TAKING A PHOTO USING THE IN-BUILT CAMERA
1. Open the CAMERA menu from your Activity
Row, select the ECO TOOLS key. Then
select the CAMERA key.
NOTE: You can also go to the Toolbox and select
the CAMERA MENU.
This menu may take a few seconds longer to open
than other Toolbox menus. You will also see a
picture in the View Finder. This will show whatever
the camera lens is pointing at.
NOTE: Your Camera feature must be turned ON in
the Maintenance Menu before the Camera feature
will work. To Turn ON the Camera, go to the
Toolbox, select Maintenance Menu, and then
Built-in Devices. Here you see the Camera feature select ON so the yellow box reads ON. Select OK
three times to exit the menus and toolbox.

Select the Zoom-In key to bring specific
objects or areas of the picture into closer
focus. (Note: As you zoom-in, you will lose
resolution. Eventually the picture will
become very grainy).
Once Zoom-In is selected, the Pan keys also
become available to use. The Pan keys
allow you to move up, down and sideways
in the picture.
Zoom-Out allows you to return to the
original picture.
Select the Take Picture key once you have
the desired image within the View Finder.

option buttons on the right have become

another one. The new picture will replace the
old one in Picture Preview frame. You can also

menu without saving any pictures.

USEFUL TIP
If you wish to take photos for downloading to your
PC and printing, you will then need to install other
camera software. You must first turn CAMERA Off

need to install a new driver to go with the new
camera.
