Hi all.

Cheapest and easiest way to get this working with your computer is to buy a SD drive ( only a couple of $$$ ). All you will need to do is take out the SD card from the camera, put it in the SD drive and then download your pictures from the SD.

Easy as!

Consider NOT connecting the camera to the computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

The flash is in macro mode. What does that mean and how do I get the flash to turn on?


The macro mode is for taking pictures of subjects very close to the camera. The camera disables the flash in this mode. There's a switch on the left side of the camera, near the USB port. Slide this switch away from the flower symbol and toward the mountain symbol to switch out of the macro mode.

Will not let me use flash....says macro mode


You can't use the flash in macro mode, which is used for taking pictures of subjects very close to the camera. To switch out of the macro mode, slide the switch on the left side of the camera, near the USB port, away from the flower symbol toward the mountain symbol.

IS THIS CAMERA WATERPROOF AND HO DO U TURN ON THE FLASLIGHT


No, the camera is not waterproof.


Touch the lightning bolt icon area until the flash icon appears on the left side of the display. This will activate the flash.

Touch the lightning bolt icon area again until the flash symbol appears on the LCD screen. This forces the flash function.

Touch the lightning bolt icon area again until the eyeball icon appears on the left. This activates the red-eye reduction mode.

To turn off the flash, touch the lightning bolt icon area again until the no-flash icon (lightning bolt inside a circle) appears on the left.

This is covered on pages 13-14 of the manual. If you've misplaced your manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at http://vivitar.com
