New Easy share accident trying set up switched to foriegn language.How do I get to english? all instructions are in other lang.

You'll just have to count the options carefully to get the right one. First press the MENU button, there will be two 'tabs' and you want the second one, you'll probably have to press "right" to get it. Now press "down" and count through these options:
  • Date and Time
  • LCD Brightness
  • Share Button settings
  • Red Eye reduction
  • Orientation Sensor
  • Camera Sounds
  • Video Out
  • Image Storage
  • Language
  • Reset Camera
  • Format
  • About
It might be easier to go to the bottom where About is, and go "up" by three...

If you get it right, when you press OK on the right one, you should see many languages including English IN ENGLISH. If you do, go ahead and select it and press OK. If you don't... back out and don't change anything!
