INTRODUCTION
Overview
Your stylish new digital camera delivers high quality, 2560 x 1920 resolution images using a 5.0 Megapixels
CCD sensor. Using the 2.0" TFT color image LCD monitor, you can compose images and then examine them
in detail. The auto-flash sensor automatically detects the shooting (lighting) conditions and determines whether
the flash should be used. This feature ensures your images turn out right.
16 MB internal memory (14 MB available for image storage) lets you capture and store images without memory
card. However, you may wish to expand the memory capacity using an external memory card.
In addition to still images, you can record short videos using the movie function.
Images you have taken can be downloaded to your computer using the USB cable. You can enhance and retouch your
images on your computer by using the provided editing software, or image editing software you already have.
You may share your images with your friends via e-mail, in a report, or on a website.
DPOF (Digital Print Order Format) functionality allows you to print your images on a DPOF compatible printer by
simply inserting the memory card.
