QUICK GUIDE: BUSHNELL IMAGEVIEW
INSTALL BATTERIES AND TURN ON THE CAMERA
Insert 2 AAA alkaline batteries as indicated inside the battery compartment, located at the side of the left eyepiece. Turn the camera on by pressing and holding the MODE button until the display comes on and the camera beeps. To turn the unit off,
press and hold the MODE button until the display goes out. The camera will turn itself
off automatically to save batteries if none of the buttons have been pressed for three minutes.
ADJUST THE BINOCULAR FOR COMFORTABLE VIEWING
Adjust the center focus wheel (located between the eyepieces on the bottom of the camera) while viewing a distant object through the binocular, until it appears sharp. Holding your ImageView by the raised dot and ridge grip areas, carefully slide the left and right sides of the camera farther apart or closer together until you see a single circular image through the eyepieces. Rotate the diopter adjustment (dial with index marks on the bottom front of the ImageView) to find the best setting for your vision if the image does not appear as sharp to your right eye as it does for your left eye (close your left eye while you turn the dial, then check with both eyes open). Note the index settings for your eyes on both this diopter adjust dial and the IPD scale that is visible when the left/right halves are slid apart. This will make it easier to reset later if someone else uses your ImageView.

CHANGING OPERATIONAL MODES
Pressing the MODE/POWER() button briefly will cycle through several special camera modes and settings. A corresponding icon or symbol (indicated in parentheses below) will be displayed on the LCD for each mode as you cycle through them by tapping the MODE/POWER() button, and blink unless you select or confirm it with the OK button (icon will stop blinking). If no button is pressed for more than 5 seconds, the camera will return to normal operation. The modes/settings are shown as you cycle through them in the following order:
•Timer ( ) : selects the
•Repeat Shot ( ) : Takes rapid series of 3 consecutive photos, approx. 1 second apart, when you press and hold the SNAP button. As with the timer, the camera will remain in this mode until you change it, or until the camera’s memory is full. This is indicated by the display showing “FUL” and a beep alarm.
•High/Low Quality (LQ) : When “LQ” is displayed, pressing “OK” will set the camera to low resolution mode (320x240
•AVI Mode: ( ) : This mode sets the camera to take short movie clips (.avi files) rather than still photos. When this mode is activated (press OK when the movie icon blinks), holding down the SNAP button will film an avi movie until you release it (or the memory is full). When the SNAP button is released, the camera reverts back to normal still photo operation (assuming unused memory remains). Repeat the steps to set AVI mode again if you wish to shoot more movie clips.
•Power Frequency Setting: (60/50 Hz): This sets the correct electrical frequency to avoid any “flickering” in the camera’s output. The normal default is “60” Hz (cycle), as used in the United States. If you are using the camera in a country with 50 Hz power frequency, press OK when the “50” icon blinks to select it.
•Delete Last ( ) : Pressing OK when the “Delete Last” icon is blinking will delete (erase) the last photo you took from the camera’s memory.
•Delete All ( ) : When this mode is selected, the word “ALL” appears next to the trash can icon, and the number of total photos in memory will blink in the display. Press and hold the OK button to erase the entire memory contents. You will hear a tone that becomes higher as the photos are deleted. When the process is complete, the photo number display will reset to zero. If no button is pressed for 5 seconds, the camera returns to
OTHER DISPLAY ICONS
•Battery Indicator ( ) : Shows the amount of battery life left. When only one third of the icon is filled in, you should plan to replace the batteries soon. Be sure to bring an extra set of batteries on a long trip or for important events.
WARNING: Make sure you download all photos (see directions below) from the camera before removing or changing the batteries. The camera memory is battery dependant, and your photos will be lost if you take the batteries out, or if the batteries are allowed to become completely dead.
•PC Connection (PC) : When the camera is connected to your PC via the supplied USB cable, the “PC” icon is displayed. Note: when the camera is connected to a PC, the camera will power on automatically, and uses the USB connection for power to conserve battery life while downloading photos.

Your Bushnell binocular is a precision instrument designed to provide many years of pleasurable viewing. This portion of the booklet will help you achieve optimum performance by explaining how you can adjust the binocular to your eyes, and how to care for this instrument. Read the instructions carefully before using your binocular.
EYE ADJUSTMENTS (Figure 1)
How to Adjust For Distance Between Your Eyes
The distance between the eyes, called “interpupillary distance,” varies from person to person. To achieve perfect alignment of lens to eye, follow these simple steps.
1.Hold your ImageView in the normal viewing position.
2.Holding the ImageView at the grip areas (dots and ridges on top
and bottom surfaces), carefully slide the left and right sides apart until it is set for your eye spacing (you will see a singular circular field). If you go too far, simply slide the sides back so they are closer together. Note the index scale position to help you reset this if someone else uses your ImageView.
How to Adjust For Individual Eye Strength
As individual eyesight varies from one person to another, Bushnell binoculars have a diopter setting feature which allows you to
1. Adjust interpupillary distance. (Figure 1)
2.Set the “diopter setting” (the dial on the bottom front of the ImageView ) to zero (the middle mark on dial - opposite arrow) and view a distant object. (Figure 2)
3.Keep both eyes open at all times.
4.Using your hand, cover the objective (front) lens on the right side.
5.Using the center focus wheel (on the bottom of binocular between the eyepieces), focus on a distant object with fine
detail (e.g., brick wall, tree branches, etc.) until it appears as sharp as possible.
6.Uncover the objective lens on the right side, cover the other objective lens, then view the same object.
7.Using the “diopter setting” dial, focus the same object being viewed. Caution should be used as over turning or forcing the dial can cause damage.
8.Your binocular should be adjusted for your eyes. Focus at any far or near distances can now be attained simply by turning the center focus wheel. Make a note of the diopter setting for your eyes for future reference.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR CARE OF BINOCULARS
Your Bushnell binocular will provide years of
1.If your binocular has
2.Avoid banging and dropping.
3.Store in a cool, dry place.
4.CAUTION: Looking directly at the sun with your binocular may be very harmful to your eyes.
5.Never expose your ImageView binocular to any type of excessive of liquid or fluid, as the binocular is not water/fogproof.
6.Take the batteries out of your ImageView if you are not going to use it for a long period of time. (Make sure you download any pictures from your camera before you remove the batteries from the camera.)
1.Blow away any dust or debris on the lens (or use a soft lens brush).
2.To remove dirt or finger prints, clean with a soft cotton cloth rubbing in a circular motion. Use of a coarse cloth or unnecessary rubbing may scratch the lens surface and eventually cause permanent damage. A “microfiber” cleaning cloth (available at most photo dealers) is ideal for the routine cleaning of your optics.
3.For a more thorough cleaning, photographic lens tissue and

GUIDE RAPIDE: Bushnell® ImageView®
INSTALLATION DES PILES ET ACTIVATION DE L’APPAREIL PHOTO
Introduisez 2 piles alcalines type AAA, comme indiqué, dans le compartiment de piles situé sur le côté de l’oculaire gauche. Activez l’appareil photo en maintenant le bouton MODE/POWER () (MODE/ALIMENTATION) enfoncé, jusqu’à ce que l’affichage apparaisse et que l’appareil fasse entendre un bip. Pour désactiver l’appareil, maintenez le bouton MODE/POWER() enfoncé
jusqu’à ce que l’affichage disparaisse. L’appareil se désactive automatiquement pour conserver l’énergie des piles si aucun bouton n’a été actionné pendant trois minutes.
REGLAGE DES JUMELLES POUR UNE OBSERVATION CONFORTABLE
Ajustez la molette de mise au point centrale (située entre les oculaires, au bas de l’appareil photo), tout en observant un objet éloigné dans les jumelles, jusqu’à ce qu’il paraisse net. Tout en maintenant l’ImageView par les prises au point en relief et nervurées, faites coulisser avec précaution les côtés gauche et droit de l’appareil pour les éloigner ou les rapprocher, de façon à voir une image circulaire dans les oculaires. Tournez le réglage dioptrique (cadran à repères à la partie inférieure avant de l’ImageView) pour trouver la position qui correspond le mieux à votre vision, si l’image n’apparaît pas aussi nette dans l’œil droit que dans l’œil gauche (fermez l’œil gauche pendant que vous tournez le cadran puis vérifiez avec les deux yeux ouverts). Notez les repères correspondant à vos yeux sur ce cadran de réglage dioptrique et sur la graduation visible entre les oculaires lorsque les parties gauche/droite coulissent. Cela facilitera le retour à ce réglage si une autre personne utilise votre ImageView.
VERIFICATION DES REGLAGES DE L’APPAREIL PHOTO
Vérifiez que l’appareil photo est réglé pour la haute qualité (“LQ” N’APPARAÎT PAS sur l’écran LCD
