INTRODUCTION
Overview
Your new stylish digital camera delivers high quality, 2560 x 1920 resolution images using a 5.0 Megapixels CCD
sensor. Using the 1.7" TFT color image LCD monitor, you can compose images and then examine them in detail. An
auto-flash sensor automatically detects the shooting (lighting) conditions and determines whether the flash should be
used. This feature helps ensure that your images turn out right.
16 MB internal memory (14 MB available for image storage) lets you capture and store images without the need for an
additional memory card. However, you may wish to expand the memory capacity by using an external memory card.
In addition to still images, you can record short videos by 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 may already own. You
may share your images with your friends via e-mail, in a report, or on a website.
DPOF functionality allows you to print your images on a DPOF compatible printer by simply inserting the memory card.

Setting the Image Resolution and Quality
Resolution and quality settings determine the pixel size (dimension), image file size, and compression ratio for your

fewer images will take up more memory space.
High resolution and quality settings are recommended for printed output and situations requiring the finest detail.
