SAFETY CHECK-OUT

After correcting the original service problem, perform the following safety checks before releasing the set to the customer. 1. Check the area of your repair for unsoldered or poorly-soldered 4. Look for parts which, through functioning, show obvious signs connections. Check the entire board surface for solder splashes of deterioration. Point them out to the customer and and bridges. recommend their replacement. 2. Check the interboard wiring to ensure that no wires are 5. Check the B+ voltage to see it is at the values specified. "pinched" or contact high-wattage resistors. 6. Flexible Circuit Board Repairing 3. Look for unauthorized replacement parts, particularly • Keep the temperature of the soldering iron around 270˚C transistors, that were installed during a previous repair. Point during repairing. them out to the customer and recommend their replacement. • Do not touch the soldering iron on the same conductor of the circuit board (within 3 times). • Be careful not to apply force on the conductor when soldering or unsoldering.

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. • 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 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 fully down Press halfway straight away down, then Flashing,lit/beeps Press 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” (below).

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. Whitish image However, you can adjust it manually using the functions below. Correct exposure [EV]: Allows you to adjust the exposure that has been determined by the camera. t page 29 Underexposure [Metering Mode]: = too little light Allows you to change the part of the Darker image subject to be measured to determine the exposure. t page 32 [Bracket Setup]: Records three images with the exposure value of each image slightly shifted. t page 35,

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 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)., Enjoying the camera

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

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

Pixel Many (Fine image quality and large file Example: Printing in up to A4 size) size Few (Rough image quality but small file Example: An attached image size) to be sent by e-mail The default settings are marked with . Image size Usage guidelines 5M (2592×1944) Larger For printing high density images in A4 or A5 size 3:2* (2592×1728) 3M (2048×1536) 1M (1280×960) For printing in postcard size VGA(E-Mail) For recording a large number of images (640×480) Smaller For attaching images to e-mail or creating home pages * Images are recorded in the same 3:2 aspect ratio as photograph printing paper or postcards, etc.

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.,
