2-Megapixel Digital Camera with Color LCD

1

Brief Description

Your 2-megapixel digital camera with color LCD display is roughly the size of a credit card - only 13 mm thick. The camera’s portability and convenience are enabled by its “worry free” rechargeable battery, simple user interface, and easy image download when you connect the camera to a PC or Mac with the supplied USB cable.

Package Contents

Be sure to check that the package contains all the items listed below:

Camera Hand Strap

USB cable Carry Bag

CD-ROM Quick Dperation Guide

Hand Strap Docking Station

If any items are missing, please contact the store where you purchased the camera. Keep the camera packaging in a safe place as it will be needed if you return the camera for repairs, etc.

2 Before Using Your Camera

To ensure that you use your camera correctly, read the Safety Notes in section 8 and the rest of this user’s manual carefully.

Holding the camera correctly

Due to the extremely compact size and light weight of the camera, it is critical that you hold the camera securely in order to avoid “camera shake”. The camera is particularly sensitive to

“shake” in low light environments. Taking a picture in low light requires a longer exposure time for the image to be captured and any movement during this time might cause a blurred image.

When taking a photo in low light the flash may trigger. Before this happens, try to avoid gripping the camera with your fingers placed on the front face of the camera. Instead, hold the camera on its edges so that the light of the flash does not reflect off your finger(s) and cause lens flare.

Test photos

Before you capture your first images, we recommend you take some test photos to make sure that the camera is working properly. This will also help you become comfortable holding the camera in order to capture satisfactory images.

Using Your 2-Megapixel 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 with the flash or over one thousand images without the flash. 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 before leaving home

The lithium-polymer battery used in the camera recharges automatically when the camera is plugged into a PC or Mac via the USB cable. In order to charge the battery the first time, first install the included software (see Installing the Software in section 4) and then plug the camera into your computer using the provided USB cable. When the battery is charging, the green LED will blink. When charging is complete, the green LED will be steady on.

4

Lithium- polymer battery tips:

o

Safety note: Always observe the precautions described in Section 8. o

It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge a depleted battery. o

The camera can be charged at ambient temperatures between 0°C and +40°C. o

The battery does not need to be fully discharged or exhausted before being recharged. o

Lithium-polymer batteries lose their charge even when not used. So, be sure to charge the battery before taking pictures. o

To ensure that your battery lasts as long as possible, switch the camera off when you are not using it. o

The number of available shots will be lower at low temperatures. You can increase the amount of power produced by put ting the camera in your pocket or another warm place to heat it just before taking pictures. If you are using a heating pad, take care not to place the camera directly against the pad.

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 once more to switch to preview mode with icons visible. Press the

LCD button again to turn off the LCD.

11

Do not use the camera while you are walking, running, driving or operating machinery.

Doing so can result in a serious accident.

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. To override low light lock-out, continue holding the shutter button for 1 second after the warning beep. To turn low light lock-out on or off see Configuring the Camera in section 5.

Deleting an image

5 Connecting the 2MP Digital Camera to Your PC or Mac

After the software has been installed on your computer, plug the camera into an available

USB port using the provided USB cable. The Windows operating system requires that you install drivers for the camera so that the camera and computer can communicate properly.

To do this:

§ Connect your camera to an available USB Port.

§ When connected to your PC the computer will recognize the new device and display a

“Found New Hardware” message. You must wait while the computer identifies your camera. If you have already installed the software, the information window will display the name of the device connected. If you have not installed the software, disconnect the camera from your computer and follow the direction under Installing

the Software in this section.

26

§ The Found New Hardware Wizard will begin automatically. Make sure that “Install the software automatically” is selected, and click Next.

27

§ Windows will begin to search for the necessary drivers on your system. These were installed with the software. When your computer locates the drivers, your computer may display the following message:

If you see this message, click Continue Anyway. Your camera has been thoroughly tested and will work with your system. The drivers are undergoing Microsoft’s driver approval process (WHQL certification). Upon completion of this process, they will be digitally signed and this message will no longer appear.

28

§ Wait while your computer installs the drivers. This step may take several minutes.

Mac Note: The drivers for the Mac are installed with the software and will not require any additional set up.

29

Auto-Download of images from the camera

Note: Because the files stored in your camera are specially compressed to increase storage capacity, images must be downloaded using Photo Album before the images are converted into JPEG format images for use with other programs or computers.

Note for Mac OS X users: The software that is installed enables iPhoto to process the images from the digital camera.

30

When you have plugged in the camera to your PC (see instructions for doing so above, if needed), the auto-launch of the Photo Viewer is triggered.

You will be pompted to enter a destination directory. This is the directory where all of the images downloaded from the camera will be stored. Click Yes, unless you want to specify a different destination directory.

31

As the images are downloaded they will be displayed as thumbnails in the main window of Photo Album.

If you want all the selected images deleted after downloading to your PC, click OK.

But if you want the selected images to remain stored on your camera after download to your PC, un-check the box that says, “Delete selected after download” and then click.

32

The photos are copied from the camera to the specified folder. This may take a few moments.

33

Click OK.

Note on “SD Write-Back”: Once the images have been processed in the Photo

Album (and automatically converted into JPEG files), these images are automatically stored in your destination folder on your computer. In addition, when Photo Album has processed images that were downloaded originally from your SD card, those images are “written back” and stored on your SD card. The original ‘raw’ files on your SD card are replaced by the newly converted JPEG files.
