The Dolphin 7200 with Image-Capture handheld computer incorporates a low-power, high-resolution camera to electronically
capture and store images. The terminal can also be used to scan barcodes when equipped with a laser scanner.
These instructions briefly describe how to set-up and use the Dolphin Image-Capture terminal and supplied demonstration
software. Refer to Chapters 1 and 2 in the Dolphin User’s Guide for more on basic operation of the Dolphin terminal and Chapter
4 for specific details on the Dolphin Image Capture terminal.
