Appendix
About the Folder & File Name
Your digital camera automatically creates a directory of folders in the internal memory or
memory card that it uses to organize still images, movie clips and other information.
Folder Structure
Folder name begins with a 3-digit number from
100 to 999 and followed by “HPDSC”, each folder
holds up to 9999 files.
If new files are made, a
new folder named in sequence will be made
automatically.

sequence. File numbering starts from 0001 when a new folder is created.

will display the warning message “Folder cannot be created”. When it appears, try one of
the following ways:
Reset the file number and plug in a new memory card.
The folder number and file number are initialized and renumbered from 100 and
0001 respectively.
Caution
Do not change the folder and file names in the memory card using your

Photography Terms and Definitions
Terms
Definitions
A simple technique professional photographers use to ensure they properly
auto exposure
expose their pictures, especially in challenging lighting situations. When AEB is
bracketing (AEB):
selected, the camera automatically takes three or more shots with a different
exposure for each frame.
Autofocus refers to a camera lens' ability to adjust its configuration in order to
focus properly on a subject regardless of whether it is near or far from the
autofocus (AF)
camera. Autofocus lenses generally provide vastly superior image quality than
do their fixed focus cousins since they do not have to rely on their depth of field.
Also known as: "AF", "auto-focus"
An end-user created object that is used to logically group data objects according
album
to some user-defined criteria. An album may or may not be a physical folder in a
filesystem.
Analog to Digital
Converter
(A/D or ADC)
A circuit that converts an analog signal, having a continuously varying amplitude,
to a digitally quantized representation using binary output signals.
Usually refer to image aspect ratio or pixel aspect ratio.
Image aspect ratio: The ratio of the image width to the image height.
aspect ratio
Pixel aspect ratio: The ratio of the distance between sampling points in the two
orthogonal sampling directions. If the distances are equal, the pixel aspect ratio
equals 1:1 and is said to be “square.”
auto white balance
(AWB)
Charge Coupled
Device (CCD)
With auto white balance, the camera attempts to determine the color
temperature of the light and automatically adjust for that color temperature. Many
people just leave the camera set to auto white balance all the time.
A type of silicon integrated circuit used to convert light into an electronic signal.
Usually refer to image compression or sound file compression.
Image compression: A process that alters the way digital image data are
compression
encoded in order to reduce the size of an image file.
Sound file compression: A process of altering the sound data coding in order
to reduce the size of a sound file in the electronic still picture camera.
connection
A transport-provided logical or physical persistent mechanism for transferring
data between devices.
A standardized ASCII file created in a digital camera and stored on removable
Digital Print Order
media along with the image files that indicate how many copies of which images
Format (DPOF)
should be printed. It also allows index prints, cropping, and text overlays to be
specified.

digital still camera
A camera incorporating an image sensor which outputs a digital signal
(DSC)
representing a still picture, or records a digital signal representing a still picture
on a removable medium, such as a memory card or magnetic disk.
The ratio of the maximum luminance level that appears unclipped to the
dynamic range
minimum luminance level that can be reproduced with an incremental signal to
temporal noise ratio of at least 1, as determined according to ISO 15739.
A compressed file format for digital cameras in which the images are
Exif/JPEG
compressed using the baseline JPEG standard, described in ISO 12234-2, and
metadata and thumbnail images are stored using TIFF tags within an application
segment at the beginning of the JPEG file.
A numerical value that is inversely proportional to the exposure provided to an
exposure index
image sensor to obtain an image. Images obtained from a camera using a range
of exposure index values will normally provide a range of image quality levels.
file system
folder
The software structure which specifies how the data are logically organized on a
given storage medium.
An optional sub-structure in a hierarchical storage area that can contain data
objects.
A numerical value calculated from the exposure provided at the focal plane of an
electronic camera to produce specified camera output signal characteristics
ISO speed
using the methods described in the referenced standard. The ISO speed should
correlate with the highest exposure index value that provides peak image quality
for normal scenes.
JPEG
memory card
PC
protocol
Joint Photographic Experts Group. An image compression method defined in
ISO/IEC 10918-1.
A specific type of memory module with a physical form factor approximating that
of a credit card in outline; approx. 85 mm x 55 mm.
Personal Computer. Any personal computing device, which may employ various
hardware architectures and operating systems.
Defined mechanisms for exchanging data between devices.
A device-specific four byte unsigned integer (UINT32) that represents a unique
StorageID
storage area that may contain data objects. The most significant sixteen bits of a
StorageID represents the PhysicalStorageID, while the least significant sixteen
bits of a StorageID represents the LogicalStorageID.
Universal serial bus, a digital interface for connecting up to 64 devices in a
USB
tiered-star topology.
See http://www.usb.org.
The adjustment of electronic still picture color channel gains or image processing
white balance
so that radiation with relative spectral power distribution equal to that of the
scene illumination source is rendered as a visual neutral.

Getting Help
Should you have a technical support question or your HP Digital Camera require service within
the warranty period, please contact the original point of purchase or an authorized HP reseller
in your country. If service is not available at those locations, please contact an HP Branded Product warranty agent from the support contact list provided below. A service agent will work with
you to troubleshoot your issue and if necessary, issue a Return Material Authorization (RMA)
number in order to replace your HP Branded Product. For warranty claims, you will be required
to provide a copy of your original dated sales receipt as proof of purchase and the issued RMA
number. You will be responsible for shipping charges when shipping the product to the service
center. The service agent will provide you with an address and you will also be responsible for
any shipping charges to the warranty service center. Once your product is received by this
service center, a replacement unit will be shipped back to you typically within 5 business days.
