Using Your Digital Camera
Charging the battery
Long battery life is one of the key benefits of this camera compared to other digital cameras.
On a full charge, the camera will take hundreds of images. Your camera battery has already
been charged prior to shipment. So, you should be able to take pictures without recharging it.
However, just to be safe, you may want to follow the instructions below to make sure that
your camera is fully charged.
Note: Install the provided software before initial charging of the camera.
The Lithium-polymer battery used in the camera recharges automatically when the camera is
plugged into a PC via the USB cable. When the battery is charging, the blue LED will blink.
After fully charged, the blue LED remains ON.
Lithium-polymer battery tips:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Safety note: Always observe the precautions described in Section 7.
It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge a battery.
The battery can be charged at any time.
If power is low, the red LED blinks 5 times and then the camera turns off.
Recharge the battery immediately.
A fully charged battery allows the camera to take about 90 pictures with Flash and 440
pictures without Flash.
To ensure that your battery lasts as long as possible, switch the camera off when you are
not using it.
5
Turning on the camera
Press the Power button once to turn on the camera. Press it again to turn the camera off.
Note:
• The camera has an automatic time-out feature to conserve battery life. After one minute
(or 2 minutes) the camera will time-out (turn off). When timed out, the camera will not
take a photo when you push the shutter button. Press the Power button once to turn on the
camera again.
• If power is low, the red LED blinks 5 times and then the camera turns off. Recharge the
battery immediately.
Turning on the LCD
The LCD screen comes on automatically in preview mode when the power is turned on.
Press the LCD button to switch to preview mode. Press the LCD button again to turn off the
LCD.

Large resolution is 4620 x 3465 pixels, Medium resolution is 2000 x1500 pixels, and Small
resolution is 1000 x 750 pixels. The higher resolution setting allows for an image to be
printed as large as 8 x 10 inches.

Taking pictures
To take pictures using your Digital Camera:
• Turn the camera on.

AUTO.
• Use the color LCD display to capture the preferred image. The color LCD comes on
automatically in preview mode when the camera is turned on. Press the LCD button again
to view preview mode with icons.

• The LCD will indicate when the picture has been successfully taken by increasing the
number on the display. If the sound feature is turned on, one short beep indicates that a
picture is taken.
About Autobrite® technology
The camera offers the benefits of a technology known as Autobrite. This technology
automatically adjusts the exposure and captures crisp details in scenes where both dim and
bright lighting conditions are present, such as glare or backlighting. Most existing digital
cameras produce washed out or silhouetted images under such conditions. We suggest you
try to avoid taking pictures pointing directly at bright objects (such as the sun), due to the
potential impact of extremely bright lighting on image quality and lens flare.
Autobrite is proprietary to SMaL Camera Technologies, Inc. of Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA.
Low light lock-out
Low light lock-out is a feature that prevents the camera from taking pictures in low light
settings when the flash is not ready. When low light lock-out is enabled the camera will give
a warning beep – even if the sound is off.
Note: To override low light lock-out, continue holding the shutter button for 1 second after
the warning beep.

Safety Notes
We strongly recommend that you read these Safety Notes (and associated materials) before
using your camera.
WARNING
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
The enclosed disk is a computer CD-ROM. Never attempt to play this disk on an ordinary
music CD player as it may produce extremely high noise levels that could damage your
hearing or your audio equipment.
The camera is a precision instrument. Never attempt to dismantle this device. There is a
serious danger of a powerful electric shock.
Do not drape the connection cord around your neck or otherwise treat the cable carelessly,
as this could result in suffocation or injury.
Do not leave the camera in locations exposed to direct sunlight, as this could cause a fire
due to magnification by the lens.
Do not bring the camera close to a flame or throw it into a fire.
Do not drop the camera or otherwise subject it to strong impact.
Do not immerse the camera in water.
Notes on Copyright
Images recorded using your digital camera system cannot be used in ways that infringe
copyright laws without the consent of the owner, unless intended only for personal use. Note
that some restrictions apply to the photographing of stage performances, entertainments and
exhibits, even when intended purely for personal use. Users are also asked to note that the
transfer of memory containing images or data protected under copyright laws is only
permissible within the restrictions imposed by those copyright laws.
Liquid Crystal
If the liquid crystal display (LCD) is damaged, take particular care with the liquid crystal
inside the panel. If any of the following situations arise, take the urgent action indicated:
• If liquid crystal comes in contact your skin: Wipe the area with a cloth and then wash
thoroughly with soap and running water.
• If liquid crystal gets into your eye: Flush the affected eye with clean water for at least 15
minutes and then seek medical assistance.
• If liquid crystal is swallowed: Flush your mouth thoroughly with water. Drink large
quantities of water and induce vomiting. Then seek medical assistance.
20
Handling Your Digital Camera Safely
This camera contains precision electronic components. To ensure that images are recorded
correctly, do not subject the camera to impact or shock while an image is being recorded.
Places to Avoid
Do not use or store the camera in the following types of locations:
• In the rain or in very humid, dirty or dusty places.
• Places subject to extreme temperature rises, such as in direct sunlight or a closed car in
summer. Extremely cold places.
• Places subject to strong vibration.
• Places affected by smoke or steam.
• Places subject to strong magnetic fields (such as near motors, transformers or magnets).
• In contact with chemicals such as pesticides or next to rubber or vinyl products for long
periods of time.
• Sandy places such as beaches or deserts, or places where there is wind-borne sand.
Note on Condensation
If the camera is carried suddenly from a cold location into a warm location, water droplets
may form on the inside of the camera or on the lens (condensation). When this occurs, switch
the camera off and wait an hour before using the camera.
Cleaning Your Camera
•
•
•
Use a blower brush to remove dust from the lens, LCD and then wipe lightly with a soft,
dry cloth.
Do not scratch hard objects against the lens, LCD as these surfaces are easily damaged.
Clean the body of the camera with a soft, dry, cloth. Do not use volatile substances such
as thinners, benzine or insecticide, as these may react with the camera body finish and
cause deformation or remove the coating.
Checked Baggage
When traveling by air, do not place your camera in the check-in baggage. Baggage handling
at airports may subject baggage to violent shocks, and the camera may be damaged internally
even when no external damage is visible.
To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose the camera to rain or moisture.
