• Setting the Image Size and Quality

Picture resolution refers to the number of pixels in a digital picture. Picture quality depends on the JPEG file compression that the camera applies when the picture is taken. Higher resolution and less compression make better quality which occupies more memory space. Smaller size pictures with normal quality are easier to email while larger size with fine quality are better for printing.

• Setting the ISO

This function enables you to change the camera’s sensitivity to light by selecting the different ISO values. ISO is a measure of how quickly your camera reacts to light. The higher the ISO value, the less light the camera needs to make an exposure, allowing the same exposure to be achieved with higher shutter speeds or smaller apertures. In a digital camera, higher ISO value allows higher shutter speed, at the expense of mottle or grain appearing in the final picture.

• About DPOF

DPOF stands for “Digital Print Order Format”, which is a format for recording on a memory card or other medium which digital camera images should be printed and how many copies of the image should be printed. Then you can print on a DPOF-compatible printer or at a professional print service from the memory card in accordance with the file name and number of copies settings recorded on the card.

With this camera, you should always select images by viewing them on the LCD screen. Do not specify images by file name without viewing the

file contents.

IMPORTANT! DPOF print settings can be configured for images on a memory card only, not for images in the camera’s built-in memory.

8 Using the SD (Secure Digital) Card

• Using the SD Card

Your camera comes with built-in flash memory for storing pictures and video clips. You can expand the memory using a commercially available SD card (up to 1GB). The camera senses whether a memory card is inserted, and automatically saves pictures and video clips accordingly. Note that you cannot save pictures or video clips to the built-in flash memory while a memory card is installed in the camera. See pages 99 to 102 for storage capacities.

Memory card precautions:

1.Use only a SD memory card with this camera.

2.Electrostatic charge, electrical noise, and other phenomena can cause data corruption or even loss. Always make sure that you always back up important data on other media (MO disc, computer hard drive, etc.).

3.If a memory card starts to behave abnormally, you can restore normal operation by formatting it. However, we recommend that you always take along with more than one memory card whenever using the camera far away from your home or office.

4.We recommend that you format a memory card when using it for the first time, or whenever the card you are using seems to be the cause of abnormal pictures. Remember to format a memory card if it was used in another digital camera or other devices.

Polaroid i630 Digital Camera User Guide

79

www.polaroid.com

 

IMPORTANT!

• Make sure you turn off the camera before inserting or removing a memory card.

Be sure to orient the card correctly when inserting it. Never try to force a memory card into the slot when you feel resistance.

SD memory cards have a write protection switch that you can use to protect files from accidental deletion. However, you must remove the write protection whenever you want to record new files onto it, format it, or delete its files.

Files contained in the SD card recorded by other cameras may conflict with the i630 camera, and valuable data in your existing SD card may be distorted or lost when the card is inserted in the i630 camera. We strongly recommend the user to use a NEW or formatted SD card for the i630 camera. The manufacturer is not liable for losing or corrupting any valuable data or files in your SD card due to improper operation.

The i630 works best with Polariod memory cards. Consider using this type of memory card for best performance.

80

Polaroid i630 Digital Camera User Guide

www.polaroid.com

 

Inserting a SD card

1.Turn off the camera.

2.Open the SD card door by pushing it outwards as illustrated.

3.Insert the SD card and ensure the card is inserted the correct position as illustrated.

4.Close the SD card door by pressing it downwards and then slide it back to lock.

The icon will appear on the LCD screen when a SD card is inserted into the camera.

Polaroid i630 Digital Camera User Guide

81

www.polaroid.com

 

Removing the SD card

To remove the SD card, turn off your camera and open the SD card door. Gently push the SD card inwards and then release it. The SD card will eject out of the SD card slot.

IMPORTANT!

• Never insert any other object into the camera’s SD card slot. Doing so creates the risk of damage to the camera and card.

Should water or any foreign objects ever get into the card slot, immediately turn off the camera, remove the battery or disconnect the AC adapter, and contact your dealer or the nearest service provider.

Never remove a card from the camera while the camera is powered on. Doing so can cause the picture or video recording operation to fail, and even damage the memory card.

• Formatting a SD card
