Notes on the LCD screen, LCD finder

(for models with an LCD finder) and lens • The LCD screen and the LCD finder are manufactured using extremely high-precision technology so over 99.99% of the pixels are operational for effective use. However, there may be some tiny black points and/or bright points (white, red, blue, or green in color) that constantly appear on the LCD screen and the LCD finder. These points are normal in the manufacturing process and do not affect the recording in any way. • Exposing the LCD screen, the finder, or the lens to direct sunlight for long periods may cause malfunctions. Be careful when placing the camera near a window or outdoors. • Do not press against the LCD screen. The screen may be discolored and that may cause a malfunction. • Images may trail across on the LCD screen in a cold location. This is not a malfunction. • This camera is equipped with a power zoom lens. Be careful not to bump the lens, and be careful not to apply force to it.

On image data compatibility

• This camera conforms with DCF (Design rule for Camera File system universal standard) established by JEITA (Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association). • Playback of images recorded with your camera on other equipment and playback of images recorded or edited with other equipment on your camera are not guaranteed.

Basic techniques for better images

Focus Exposure Color Quality This section describes the basics so you can enjoy your camera. It tells you how to use various camera functions such as the mode dial (page 23), the menus (page 25), and so on.

Focus Focusing on a subject successfully

When you press the shutter button halfway down, the camera adjusts the focus automatically (Auto Focus). Remember to press the shutter button only halfway down. Press fully down Press halfway straight away down, then Flashing,lit/beeps Press fully down 60min VGA FINE 101 S AF 30 F2.8 To shoot a still image difficult to focus on t [Focus] (page 29)

Hints for preventing blur

Hold the camera steadily, keeping your arms at your side. Also, you can stabilize the camera by leaning against a tree or a building beside you. Using a tripod, and using the flash in dark places are also recommended., I:\Cyber\00DSCP200\258285611_UGuide\01GB-DSCP200\040BAS.fm 010COV.book Page 11 Tuesday, November 30, 2004 11:47 AM master:Right

Exposure Adjusting the light intensity

You can create various images by adjusting the exposure and the ISO sensitivity. Exposure is the amount of light that the camera will receive when you release the shutter. Shutter speed = Length of time the camera receives

Exposure: light

Aperture = Size of the opening allowing light to pass through ISO = Recording sensitivity Overexposure The exposure is automatically set to the = too much light proper value in the auto adjustment mode.

Correct exposure [Manual exposure]: Allows you to adjust the shutter speed and aperture value manually. t page 24 [EV]: Allows you to adjust the exposure that has Underexposure been determined by the camera. t page 27 = too little light Darker image [Metering Mode]: Allows you to change the part of the subject to be measured to determine the exposure. t page 30

Adjusting the ISO sensitivity

ISO is unit of measurement (sensitivity), estimating how much light an image pickup device (equivalent to photo films) receives. Even when the exposure is the same, images differ depending on the ISO sensitivity. [ISO] adjusts the sensitivity t page 32 High ISO sensitivity Records a bright image even when shooting in a dark location. However, the image tends to become noisy. Low ISO sensitivity Records an image without noise. However, the image may become darker.

Color On the effects of lighting

The apparent color of the subject is affected by the lighting conditions.

Example: The color of an image affected by light sources

Weather/lighting Daylight Cloudy Fluorescent Incandescent Characteristics of White (standard) Bluish Blue-tinged Reddish light The color tones are adjusted automatically in the auto adjustment mode. However, you can adjust color tones manually with [White Bal] (page 31)., I:\Cyber\00DSCP200\258285611_UGuide\01GB-DSCP200\040BAS.fm 010COV.book Page 13 Tuesday, November 30, 2004 11:47 AM master:Right

Quality On “image quality” and “image size”

A digital image is made up of a collection of small dots called pixels. If it contains a large number of pixels, the picture becomes large, it takes up more memory, and the image is displayed in fine detail. “Image size” is shown by the number of pixels. Although you cannot see the differences on the screen of the camera, the fine detail and data processing time differ when the image is printed or displayed on a computer screen. Description of the pixels and the image size 1 Image size: 7M 3,072 pixels×2,304 pixels = 7,077,888 pixels 2 Image size: VGA(E-Mail) 640 pixels×480 pixels = 307,200 pixels Pixels

Selecting the image size (t step 4 in “Read This First”)

Pixel Many (Fine image quality and large file Example: Printing at a larger size) size Few (Rough image quality but small file Example: An attached image to size) be sent by e-mail Image size Usage guidelines 7M (3072×2304) (the default setting) For printing at a larger size with high density 3:2 (3072×2048) For printing at photo size with high density 5M (2592×1944) For printing at a larger size with high density 3M (2048×1536) For printing at A4 size 1M (1280×960) For printing at postcard size VGA(E-Mail) (640×480) For sending an image by e-mail or creating home pages

Selecting the image quality (compression ratio) in combination (page 32)

You can select the compression ratio when digital images are saved. When you select a high compression ratio, the image lacks the fineness of detail, but has a smaller file size.
