Tips for Capturing a Good Image
Hold steady & freeze
Accurate colours
• position the camera, stabilize your arm and press and hold the FF button for 1-2 seconds
(the image freezes when you release the button)
Right amount of light
• too much light in the wrong place can create white reflections causing a blurry image for the far
end site
• when using the LED, adjust the light to less than full to reduce glare (this can occur on moist
surfaces such as in the mouth or back of throat)
Use default exposure
• the camera defaults to an exposure of 60 (lowering the exposure may cause blurry images)
• exposure indicator (blinking light) : 60 = rapid, 30 = medium, 15 = slow
Using manual focus
• you may need to turn off the autofocus (AF button) in order to focus on the right area (the
camera may focus on the centre of a wound instead of the edges)
• perform a white balance against a non-glossy piece of white paper to ensure colours will be
accurate (this should be done prior to showing image to the specialist)
• describe the colours you are seeing as the screen colours may appear different on the other
end (the colour can help tell the difference between a healing wound vs a non healing wound)
• use the lowest intensity setting of LED to avoid washing out the skin colour

Camera Buttons
FF - Freeze Frame Image
• used to freeze live video which allows a closer examination of an image
• press the FF button and release to freeze the image (image will be frozen upon release)
• press the FF button again to return to live video and freeze another image
ACB - Auto Colour Balance (used to perform White Balance)
• used to ensure that whites are truly white and all other colours are accurate
• to perform white balance, aim the camera at a white object such as a non-glossy piece of paper, and press the ACB button
Note: if you turn on the LED, ensure you perform another white balance
AF - Auto Focus
• auto focus is on by default - press the button to enable/disable (light on = enabled)
Note: AF should be disabled while the camera is on but not in use as the continuous focusing
could cause excessive wear on the focusing mechanism.
EXP - Exposure
• camera defaults to an exposure time of 60 which is the most recommended setting
• press the button to change the exposure which is indicated by the blinking light:
60 = rapid, 30 = medium, 15 = slow
Note: lowering the exposure can cause blurry images
LED - Light
• press the button to increase the light intensity (lowest intensity is ususally best)
• press and hold the LED button to increase and decrease the light gradually
