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 switch (page 24), the menus (page 26), 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 the shutter Press the shutter Then press the button fully down button halfway Flashing indicator, shutter button straight away. down. Indicator lit/beeps fully down. 60min To shoot a still image difficult to focus on t [Focus] (page 30) If the image looks blurred even after focusing, it may be because of camera shake. t See “Hints for preventing blur” (as follows).

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., Enjoying the camera

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 EV: Allows you to adjust the exposure that has been determined by the camera. t page 29 Metering Mode: Underexposure Allows you to change the part of the = too little light subject to be measured to determine the Darker image exposure. t page 32

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. To adjust the ISO sensitivity t page 33 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 a smoother image. 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 32).

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: 5M 2592 2592 pixels × 1944 pixels = 5,038,848 pixels 640 2 Image size: VGA(E-Mail) 640 pixels × 480 pixels = 307,200 pixels Pixels, Enjoying the camera

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

Pixel Many pixels (Fine image quality and Example: Printing in large file size) up to A4 size Few pixels (Rough image quality but Example: An attached small file size) image to be sent by e- mail The default settings are marked with . Image size Usage guidelines 5M (2592×1944) Larger For printing in A4 size or high density images in A5 size 3:2* (2592×1728) 3M (2048×1536) 1M (1280×960) For printing in postcard size VGA(E-Mail) Smaller For recording a large number of images (640×480) For attaching images to e-mail or creating web pages 16:9(HDTV)** For viewing images on a wide TV with a “Memory (1920×1080) Stick” slot * Images are recorded in the same 3:2 aspect ratio as photograph printing paper or postcards, etc. ** Both edges of the image may be cut off when printing (page 87).

Selecting the image quality (compression ratio) in combination (page 33)

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.,

To copy (back up) data on a “Memory Stick Duo”

Prepare a “Memory Stick Duo” with a capacity of 32 MB or more, then perform the procedure explained in [Copy] (page 51).

To copy (back up) data on a hard disc of your computer

Perform the procedure on pages 57 to 62 without a “Memory Stick Duo” inserted in the camera. • You cannot move image data on a “Memory Stick Duo” to the internal memory. • By connecting the camera and a computer with a cable for multi-use terminal, you can copy data stored in the internal memory to a computer, but you cannot copy data on a computer to the internal memory.,
