BINOCULAR INSTRUCTIONS

TURNING THE CAMERA ON AND OFF

Insert 2 AAA alkaline batteries as indicated inside the battery compartment, located at the bottom of the camera. Turn the camera on by pressing and holding the MODE button until the red power LED lights and the camera beeps once. After several seconds, the LCD display will show a live preview from the camera lens.

to check the camera aim and focus before taking a new photo. To turn the unit off, press and hold the MODE button until the display goes out and the camera beeps 3 times. The camera will turn itself off automatically to save batteries if it is left inactive for one minute. When connected to a PC for downloading photos, the camera draws power from the USB port.

TURNING THE DISPLAY ON AND OFF

Press the Display button (right side of the large 4-wayswitch) to turn the display off. Turning the display off when it is not needed will save power and extend the useful life of the batteries. To turn the display back on, press Display again.

TAKING A PICTURE

With the camera turned on, press the SNAP button to take a new photo. For best results, hold the ImageView steady using both hands. Lightly press down the SNAP button using the flat end of your finger, then release it. Avoid “punching” the SNAP button rapidly with a fingertip, resulting in shaky photos. You will hear two quick beeps to confirm a photo was taken, and briefly see a screen displaying the remaining photo capacity (now one less), battery indicator, and resolution setting (1 or 3 stars).

REVIEWING AND DELETING STORED PICTURES

You may review previous images currently stored in the camera’s memory by either scrolling through them one at a time, or seeing a “slide show” which automatically displays and changes images. To see individual images, just press the UP (most recent to oldest photo) or DOWN (oldest photo first) buttons on the 4-wayswitch. If you see a photo you wish to delete, press SNAP. You will hear a rapid

series of alarm beeps. Press SNAP a second time before the alarm sound ends to confirm you intend to delete that photo. If you do not press SNAP during the alarm, the photo will remain in memory and not be erased. When you are done reviewing images, press MODE to exit and return to preview mode, ready to take new pictures. To view a slide show of stored images, press the Slide button (left side of the 4-wayswitch). The photos will continuously cycle at3-secondintervals. Images cannot be deleted in slide show mode. (See “Changing Operational Modes” below for instructions on deleting the last or all stored images). To exit the slide show, press MODE at any time.

CHANGING OPERATIONAL MODES

Pressing the MODE 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 button. A battery meter and counter showing the remaining photo capacity are also displayed in each mode screen. To activate the shooting mode or change the setting, briefly press the SNAP button. 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:

Sequential Shot ( ) : Takes rapid series of 3 consecutive photos, approx. 1 second apart. When the Sequential Shot icon is displayed, a single press of the SNAP button will take a rapid series of 3 consecutive photos. After the series has been shot, the camera returns to normal shooting mode, and the counter will indicate that 3 photos were taken (remaining photo capacity is reduced by 3). This is a great feature for sports action shots.

3

Timer () : selects theself-timer,which will then take a photo after a 10 second delay when you press the SNAP button. The camera will beep more rapidly right before the photo is taken. After one photo has been taken in timer mode, the counter indicates one less photo remaining, and the camera returns to normal shooting mode.

Delete All Images () : When this icon is displayed, pressing SNAP once will cause the photos remaining counter to blink (this is a safetyprecaution-ifyou accidentally enter this mode and don’t want to delete all, simply wait for 5 seconds and no photos will be lost). If you proceed by pressing SNAP a second time while the counter is still blinking, the all photos currently stored in the camera’s memory will be erased, and the counter will show the maximum photo capacity. “Delete All” is a quick way to clear the memory following a download of your photos to a computer, so that the camera is ready to hold as many new photos as possible.

Delete Last Image () : Pressing SNAP when the “Delete Last” icon is displayed will delete (erase) only the last (most recent) photo you took from the camera’s memory. The counter will go up by one number to indicate the amount of “reclaimed” photo memory, and the camera will return to normal mode, ready to shoot a new photo.

High/Low Resolution () : When the “three stars” icon is displayed, the camera is set to take high resolution images (640x480 pixels). Pressing SNAP will change the camera setting to low resolution (320x240 pixels), indicated by a “one star” icon in the display. To change back to high resolution, press MODE again until you get to the “one star” icon, then press SNAP (“three stars” will again be displayed). When the resolution is changed, the counter will also change to indicate the amount of

4

photo storage capacity remaining. Setting the resolution to High will produce better quality photos, setting the resolution to Low will allow you to store more photos (of lower quality) in the memory before you stop to download.

High/Low Quality ( LQ ) : This also affects the amount of space each photo takes up in the memory by changing the degree of file compression that is used. The default is high quality, pressing SNAP when the high quality icon (six dots stacked) is displayed will change the setting to low quality (sixteen dots stacked). Repeat the procedure to return to high quality again. As with resolution above, the counter will reflect the increased or decreased photo storage remaining. Refer to the table below to see how the resolution and quality settings affect the maximum photo capacity. Note: The actual number of photos the memory will hold may vary slightly, based on subject detail, lighting, etc.

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 (cycles), as used in the United States. If you are using the camera in a country with 50 Hz power frequency, press SNAP when “60” is displayed to change it to “50”.

OTHER DISPLAY ICONS

Battery Indicator ( ) : Shows the amount of battery life left. When the battery icon begins to blink, the battery is low and should be replaced soon. If you do not see a live preview when you turn on the camera, or cannot playback stored images, replace the batteries. 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.

Photo Counter ( ### ) : Indicates the photo storage capacity left in the memory. The display will count down as you take photos so you are able to see how much memory remains in terms of the number of photos you can still take before it is full. You will need to stop and download your photos from the camera to your PC when the memory is filled (counter indicates “000” photo storage space remaining). After downloading, you can delete all photos from the memory and start over with the counter at maximum capacity (determined by resolution and quality settings).
