GENERAL WARNINGS
When fitting batteries into the camera, check the polarity of the batteries (- and +) to ensure that you
insert the battery correctly. Incorrect polarity may result in the batteries splitting or leaking and causing
a fire, injury, or soiling of the battery compartment. Remove the batteries if the camera will not be used
for an extended period of time. The batteries may leak and cause a fire, injury or soiling of the battery
compartment. If the batteries leak, clean and wipe the battery compartment carefully and install new
batteries. Wash your hands carefully if you touch the battery fluid.
WARNING: Handling the USB cable on this product may expose you to lead, a chemical known
to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. Wash your hands after
handling.
NOTE FOR THE BUILT-IN MEMORY
The JDC1.3SD camera uses a type of internal memory that continually draws power to retain pictures
and/or video clips in the camera’s internal memory, even when the camera is powered off. If the batteries
are dead or removed before turning off the camera for more than 30 seconds, all the pictures and/or
video clips stored in the internal memory will be lost.
If the camera detects the low battery power, it is strongly recommended, when using the internal memory
for the storage of images and /or video clips, that you transfer your images and/or video clips to the
computer promptly.
The JDC1.3SD camera also works with the SD memory card which can store the pictures and /or video
clips even if the batteries are depleted or removed.
NOTE FOR SETTING DIFFERENT “MODES”
After selecting the desired mode, press Shutter button within 3 seconds to activate the selected mode
otherwise the camera will go back to default Capture mode.

HOW TO INSERT/REMOVE SD MEMORY CARD
The JDC1.3SD accepts a Secure Digital (SD) memory card up to 512MB capacity. The memory card
takes priority over the internal memory. Whenever a memory card is inserted the camera will immediately
use the memory card in preference to the internal memory. Therefore, when a memory card is inserted,
the camera will store images and videos on the memory card. The images and video clips already stored
on the internal memory will not be transferred to the memory card.
Inserting a Memory Card
Insert an SD card into the memory card slot located on the side of the camera, and gently press down
with your finger.
Removing a Memory Card
Gently press down on the memory card and it will partially eject. Pull the card out with your fingers.
Note: To use the internal memory (8MB), please remove the memory card first. Memory card is
recommended to avoid loss of images due to dead battery.
