the Shu_,_r Button halfway down.
The camera measures and then
locks the focus and exposure. This Focus _k feature allows
you to focus on a subject that is not in the center of the
picture, or to capture action shots more quickly by prefocusing in the area where the action will occur.
3 Pressthe Shuffer Button all the way down to take the picture.
The image appears for several seconds on the Image
Display for instant review. During this time, the image is
saved to memory, unless you choose to delete it by pressing
the OK button.
In Step 2 above, one (or both) of the Viewfinder lights may
start blinking. For an explanation of this, see the description for

You can use the Image Display as a viewfinder to see a more
accurate view of what your picture or video will look like. This
is useful for close-up pictures and for instances in which
framing your subject precisely is important.

N©TE If you change other camera settings, icons for those
settings will also be displayed across the top and bottom
of the Live View screen. For more information, see
Advanc_ captur_ se#ings on page 37.
Using the focus brackets
The two brackets in the middle of the LiveVirtu screen show the
focus region for the picture you are taking. When you press the
Shutter button halfway down, the camera uses this focus region
to measure and then lock the focus using this region. This is
called F_us L_L
The focus brackets turn green in the Live View screen and the
AF viewfinder light turns on solid green when the image is in
focus and the camera can lock the focus. However, the focus
brackets turn red and the AF viewfinder light blinks green when
the camera is unable to focus.
If the focus brackets turn red and the AF viewfinder light blinks,
release the Shutter button, re-frame the subject for your picture,
and then press the Shut_r button halfway down again. If the
camera still cannot focus after several tries, the lighting may be
too low, or there may not be enough contrast in the focus
region. Try using Focus Lock to focus on an object about the
same distance away but in a higher-contrast region, then point
the camera at the object you were originally trying to
photograph.
26
hp photosmart 730 series user's manual
If the focus brackets turn red, the AF viewfinder light blinks,
and the Macro _ icon is blinking on the Image Display, either
the camera is set to Mac_ focus but detects the focus is further
away than the macro (close-up) range, or the camera is set to
NormaE focus but detects the focus is closer than the normal
range. For more information on the focus settings and their
respective distance ranges, see Using macro m_e on
page 36.
NOTE When set to Macro _ focus, the camera will not take a
picture if it cannot find focus. However, when set to
Normal focus (the default), the camera will still take a
picture if it cannot find focus.

hp photosmart 730 series user's manual
To turn digital zoom off and return to optical zoom, press the
Zoom Out _ button until digital zooming stops. Releasethe
button, and then press the button again.
NOTE Digital zoom reduces the resolution of an image, so
your picture will tend to be more pixilated than the same
image taken with an optical zoom. If you just intend to
e-mail an image or post it to a website, this loss of
resolution will not be noticeable, but in situations where
the highest quality counts (such as printing), skip the
digital zoom and use the cropping tools in your image
editing software to zero in on your subject.

EV compensation
In difficult lighting conditions, you can use the EV (Exposure

exposure setting that the camera makes.
EV C_mpensafion is useful in backlit scenes involving a person,
or in scenesthat contain many light objects (like a white house
in the snow) or many dark objects (like a black cat on a dark
Background). Scenes containing many light objects or many
dark objects could turn out gray without the use of EV
Compensation. For a scene with many light objects, increase
the EV Compensation to a positive number to produce a
Brighter result. For a scene with many dark objects, decrease
the EV Compensation to darken the scene to be closer to Black.

Different kinds of lighting conditions cast different colors. For
example, sunlight is more blue, while indoor tungsten light is
more yellow. Scenes dominated by a single color may require
an adjustment of the white balance setting to help the camera
reproduce colors more accurately and ensure that whites
appear white in the final picture. You can also adjust the white
balance to produce creative effects. Using the Sun or Tungsten
settings can produce a warmer look to the picture, and the
Shade setting can make a sunset picture look more orange.

NOTE If the camera is in Action, _and_ape, Portrait, F26 or

the ISO option in the Capture menu will be grayed out.
Lower ISO speeds will capture the best quality pictures with the
least amount of noise or grain. If taking a picture in low light
conditions without a flash at ISO 100, you may want to use a
tripod.
Higher ISO speeds allow higher shutter speeds and thus can
be used when taking pictures in dark areas without a flash, or
when taking pictures of fast moving objects and you want to
stop action. Higher ISO speeds produce pictures with more
grain and thus lower quality.

on almostany TV (tdevision).
NOTE If you are using the HP 8886 camera dock to do this
task, see the HP 8886 C_mero Dock User's Manual.
To connect the camera directly to a TV, you need an A/V
(Audio/Video) cable. The A/V cable is included in the
HP 8886 camera dock kit, or may be purchased separately
(see Purchasing
camera accessories on page 102).
2 Your camera will send either an NTSC or PAL video signal
to a TV. The NTSC format is used primarily in North
America and Japan, while the PALformat is used primarily
in Europe. This setting is done for you when you set the
language of the camera. If you want to change the video
signal format, change the TV Configuration setting inthe
Setup menu. SeeTV configuration on page 70.
3 Your camera will be the source for the TV signal (just like a
VCR or a camcorder), so you must set the TV to take video
input from an external video source (your camera) instead
of the antenna or cable TV. Referto the TV user's manual for
directions on how to do this.
4 Turn on the camera, then
connect the A/V cable to the
A/V inputs on the TV and to
the TV connector on your
camera.

When NiMH batteries are brand

times to reach optimum capacity.
Also, NiMH batteries discharge
on their own when not in use and
when not installed in the camera.

When the batteries are removed from the camera, the date and
time settings are preserved for approximately 10 minutes. If the
camera is without batteries for longer than 10 minutes, the
clock is set to the last date and time at which the camera was
used. You may be prompted to update the date and time.
The following battery levels may be displayed on the Status
LCD and Image Display.
Icon
i
Batteries have 30-100 percent battery life remaining.
Batteries have 10-30 percent battery life remaining.
Batteries have lessthan 10 percent remaining.
Camera will power down soon. Live View is disabled.
iCamera is operating on AC power
The camera uses two AA batteries. Do not use ordinary
alkaline Batteries. For best results, use photodithium or
rechargeable NiMH Batteries. If you must use alkaline
batteries, use high-grade "ultra" or "premium" varieties.
NOTE If you do not intend to use your camera for extended
periods of time (more than a month), we strongly
recommend that you remove the batteries.
Appendix A: Batteries and camera accessories

_if÷
® Minimize the use of Live View and video, especially when
using alkaline batteries.
Use the viewfinder to frame pictures instead of the Image
Display. Leave the Image Display off whenever possible.
® Use zoom only when necessary.
® Use the Auto flash setting rather than FJashOn.
® Minimize power cycling. If you expect to average more than
one picture every five minutes, leave the camera on rather
than turning it off after each shot. This minimizes the
number of times the lens has to extend and retract.
Use an optional HP AC adapter or HP 8886 camera dock
when the camera will be on for extended periods of time, or
when unloading pictures to your computer, printing, or
connecting to the TV.

Rechargeab_÷
batteries
Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries can be recharged by
using a battery charger. NiMH batteries can also be recharged
in the camera when the camera is connected to an optional
HP AC adapter or HP 8886 camera dock. Batteries are fully
recharged via the optional HP AC adapter or camera dock in
15 hours.
Some things to keep in mind when using NiMH batteries are:
÷ Always recharge both NiMH batteries at the same time.
One low-charged battery will reduce the battery life for both
Batteries in the camera.
÷ For NiMH batteries to reach optimal capacity and
performance, they should first be discharged completely
and recharged four separate times.
÷ NiMH batteries discharge when not in use, whether they are
installed in a device (such as in the camera) or not. If they
have not been used for more than two weeks, recharge
them before using them again.
P@W@_
¢OnS@FVa_iOn
To conserve battery power, the Image Display turns off
automatically if there is no button activity for 60 seconds. If no
buttons are pressed for 6 minutes, the camera turns off (unless
it is printing or connected to a computer or TV).
