Make sure you download any pictures from your camera BEFORE removing or changing batteries, unless you have been using an SD card rather than the internal memory for photo storage. We recommend you download all current photo files for safekeeping before storing the ImageView away if you are not using an SD card in the camera, in case the batteries become depleted during extended storage.


Do NOT look directly at the sun through your binoculars.

Doing so may cause permanent eye damage.

NOTE: To reset the camera if you experience problems or if the display becomes unresponsive, remove the batteries for at least one minute, then re-installthem. This may result in the loss of all photos/videos stored in the internal memory.

SetupCAMERAandPARTSBasic Operation

1.The camera is powered by two AAA alkaline, lithium, or NiMh batteries (not included). Insert batteries into the compartment, with the springs in contact with the negative (flat) end of each battery. A power meter on the left center of the display indicates battery condition.

2.Insert an SD card ("upside down" with metal contacts facing up) in the slot if greater storage is desired. You may use SD cards (not MMC cards) up to 1 GB capacity. The camera has 8 MB of internal memory which can hold over 100 photos, so a card is not necessary. However, the internal memory contents will be lost if the batteries are removed or die-unlikephotos stored on an SD memory card. A 256 MB standard speed SD card is available in most consumer electronics or computer stores and a is good choice for your ImageView.

3.Press and hold the MODE button until the camera turns on. The camera will turn off automatically after about one minute if no buttons are pressed. Note: when the camera is connected to a computer via the supplied USB cable, the camera will power on automatically, and draw power from the computer with no battery drain.

4.Hold the ImageView steady and press SNAP to take a picture (or start/stop shooting a video, when the camera is in video mode). The camera focus is preset to take sharp photos from appoximately 35 feet to infinity.

5.When using a tripod, you can help avoid the effects of camera shake by plugging the supplied remote shutter release into the jack next to the SD card slot, and using the button on the remote rather than SNAP to take photos.

Using the Operational Modes/Setting Date & Time

The ImageView will imprint the date and time in the bottom right corner of your photos. To set the current date and time, after turning on the camera, press and hold both the MODE and SNAP buttons at the same time, until the display begins to flash. The display now shows the last two digits of the year. Press the MODE button to move the cursor to the second digit if necessary. Press the SNAP button to advance the digit to the current year ("07" for 2007, etc). Then press MODE to go to the next number, which is the month. Again, use SNAP to change this to the current month. Following the month display is: date, hour (24hr format), minute, and second-continueto set these following the same process using the MODE and then SNAP buttons. When you have completed all of the date/time settings, the display will stop flashing and return to normal. Note that you will need to reset the date/time after replacing batteries.

Your ImageView is already set to high resolution and quality right out of the box, and it is not necessary to use the MODE settings and make any changes to get good results by simply pressing the SNAP button to take photos. However, as you might want to shoot a video clip, delete one or more previous photos, or explore other options, we recommend you review the available mode options listed on the following pages. Briefly pressing the MODE button will step through these operational modes in the listed order, and you will see the icon for each mode along with its current setting on the display. Use the SNAP button to select the desired setting for any mode. If you make no changes, and the SNAP or MODE button is not pressed within 5 seconds, the camera will return to normal operation and display.
