Basic techniques for better images

Focus Exposure Color Quality

This section describes the basics so you can enjoy your camera. It tells you how to use various camera functions such as the mode

switch, the menus (page 30), and so on.

Focus Focusing on a subject successfully

When you press the shutter button halfway down, the camera adjusts the focus automatically

(Auto Focus). Remember to press the shutter button only halfway down.

Press the shutter button fully down suddenly.

Press the shutter button halfway down.

AE/AF lock indicator flashing , lit/beeps

Then press the shutter button fully down.

To shoot a still image difficult to focus on t

[Focus] (page 35)

If the image looks blurred even after focusing, it may be because of camera shake. t See

“Hints for preventing blur” (as follows).

Hints for preventing blur

Hold the camera steady, keeping your arms at your side. It is recommended to lean against a tree or a building nearby to steady yourself. Shooting with a 2-second delay self-timer, activating the anti-blur function, or using a tripod is also effective. Use the flash when you shoot under a low light condition.

Basic techniques for better images

Exposure Adjusting the light intensity

You can create various images by adjusting the exposure and the ISO sensitivity. Exposure is the amount of light that the camera will receive when you release the shutter.

Exposure:

Shutter speed = Length of time the camera receives light

Aperture = Size of the opening allowing light to pass through

ISO = Recording sensitivity

Overexposure

= too much light

Whitish image

Correct exposure

Underexposure

= too little light

Darker image

The exposure is automatically set to the proper value in the auto adjustment mode.

However, you can adjust it manually using the functions below.

Adjusting EV:

Allows you to adjust the exposure

determined by the camera (page 22).

Metering Mode:

Allows you to change the part of the subject to be measured to determine the

exposure (page 37).

Adjusting the ISO sensitivity

ISO is unit of measurement (sensitivity), estimating how much light an image pickup device

(equivalent to photo films) receives. Even when the exposure is the same, images differ depending on the ISO sensitivity.

To adjust the ISO sensitivity, see page 39.

High ISO sensitivity

Records a bright image even when shooting in a dark location.

However, the image tends to become noisy.

Low ISO sensitivity

Records a smoother image.

However, when the exposure is insufficient, the image may become darker.

Basic techniques for better images

Color On the effects of lighting

The apparent color of the subject is affected by the lighting conditions.

Example: The color of an image affected by light sources

Weather/lighting

Characteristics of light

Daylight

White (standard)

Cloudy

Bluish

Fluorescent

Blue-tinged

Incandescent

Reddish

The color tones are adjusted automatically in the auto adjustment mode.

However, you can adjust color tones manually with [White Bal] (page 38).

Basic techniques for better images

Quality On “image quality” and “image size”

A digital image is made up of a collection of small dots called pixels.

If it contains a large number of pixels, the picture becomes large, it takes up more memory, and the image is displayed in fine detail. “Image size” is shown by the number of pixels.

Although you cannot see the differences on the screen of the camera, the fine detail and data processing time differ when the image is printed or displayed on a computer screen.

Description of the pixels and the image size

3072

1 Image size: 7M

3072 pixels × 2304 pixels = 7,077,888 pixels

640

2 Image size: VGA(E-Mail)

640 pixels × 480 pixels = 307,200 pixels

Pixels

Selecting the image size for use (page 23)

Pixel

Many pixels (Fine image quality and large file size)

Example: Printing in up to A3 size

Few pixels (Rough image quality but small file size)

Example: An attached image to be sent by email

Selecting the image quality (compression ratio) in combination (page 40)

You can select the compression ratio when digital images are saved. When you select a high compression ratio, the image lacks the fineness of detail, but has a smaller file size.

On the “InfoLITHIUM” battery pack

This camera requires an “InfoLITHIUM” battery pack (T type).

What is an “InfoLITHIUM” battery pack?

An “InfoLITHIUM” battery pack is a lithium-ion battery pack that has functions for exchanging information related to operating conditions with your camera. The

“InfoLITHIUM” battery pack calculates the power consumption according to the operating conditions of your camera, and displays the remaining battery time in minutes.

On charging the battery pack

We recommend charging the battery pack in an ambient temperature of between 10°C to 30°C

(50°F to 86°F). You may not be able to efficiently charge the battery pack outside of this temperature range.

Effective use of the battery pack

• Battery performance decreases in low temperature surroundings. So, the time that the battery pack can be used is shorter in cold places. We recommend the following to ensure longer battery pack use:

– Put the battery pack in a pocket close to your body to warm it up, and insert it in your camera immediately before you start shooting.

• The battery pack will run out quickly if you use the flash or zoom frequently.

• We recommend having spare battery packs handy for two or three times the expected shooting time, and making trial shots before taking the actual shots.

• Do not expose the battery pack to water. The battery pack is not water-resistant.

• Do not leave the battery pack in extremely hot places, such as in a car or under direct sunlight.

On the remaining battery time indicator

The power may go off although the battery remaining indicator shows there is enough power to operate. Use the battery pack up and charge the battery pack fully again so that the indication on the battery remaining indicator is correct. Note, however, that the correct battery indication sometimes will not be restored if the battery pack is used in high temperatures for a long time, left in a fully charged state or used frequently.

How to store the battery pack

• If the battery pack is not to be used for a long time, fully charge it and then fully use it up once a year on your camera before storing the battery pack in a dry, cool place. Repeat this charging and using up once a year to maintain the battery pack’s function.

• To use the battery pack up, leave your camera in

slide show (page 28) playback mode until the

power goes off.

• To prevent staining the terminal, shortcircuiting, etc., be sure to use a supplied battery case when carrying and storing.

On battery life

• The battery life is limited. Battery capacity decreases little by little as you use it more and more, and as time passes. If the battery operating time seems shortened considerably, a probable cause is that the battery pack has reached the end of its life. Buy a new battery pack.

• The battery life varies according to how it is stored and the operating conditions and environment in which each battery pack is used.

On the battery charger

On the battery charger

• Do not charge any other battery pack except

Sony “InfoLITHIUM” battery packs in the battery charger supplied with your camera.

Batteries other than the specified kind may leak, overheat, or explode if you attempt to charge them, posing a risk of injury from electrocution and burns.

• Even if the CHARGE lamp is not lit, the battery charger is not disconnected from the AC power source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall outlet (wall socket). If some trouble occurs while using the battery charger, immediately shut off the power by disconnecting the plug from the wall outlet (wall socket).

• Remove the charged battery pack from the battery charger. If you leave the charged battery pack in the charger, battery life may be shortened.

• When the CHARGE lamp flashes, this may indicate a battery error or that a battery pack other than the specified type have been inserted.

Check that the battery pack is the specified type.

If the battery pack is the specified type, remove the battery pack, replace it with new one or another one and check if the battery charger operates correctly. If the battery charger operates correctly, a battery error may have occurred.

• If the battery charger is dirty, charging may not be performed successfully. Clean the battery charger with dry cloth, etc.
