I cannot firgure out how to zoom


On the rear of your camera to the top right is a mode selector dial. To the right of this there is a vertical rocker switch, press the top half to zoom in and the bottom half to zoom out.

Note that this model is extremely basic and crude. The zoom is only a digital zoom, not an optical one: this means that every time you zoom all that's happening is the camera magnifies the image and effectively reduces it's resolution dramatically from the maximum 5.1MP. You can reduce the loss of quality by using the mode selector to go into set up mode and then setting the photo quality to "High Quality" (two stars). You'll still lose the same number of megapixels when zooming, but the data compression on your photos will be lower than when using standard quality settings. By far the best way to use your camera is to never use the digital zoom at all; leave it set fully to "wide" and if you need to zoom just crop the image afterwards on your computer.

Your camera is better than nothing, but even a basic 2MP camera built into a mobile phone will usually take better pictures.

If you'd like to know more about your camera then you can download the user manual here, courtesy of Retrevo.

I hope that you've found my answer to be of use and in return all that I ask is for you to rate my answer.

Features of each record mode


The details for each record mode are as follows: RAW: RAW data is unprocessed image data in its original state to which white balance, sharpness, contrast, color conversion and other processes have not been applied. CAMEDIA Master can be used to display RAW data and save it in other image formats. A RAW plug-in is also available for Adobe Photoshop which also provides the ability to process images in 32-bit color depth. TIFF: This is the highest-quality mode. images are saved as uncompressed data, which is the best for printing or image processing on a computer. SHQ: This is a high quality mode using the JPEG format. Because the compression rate is very low, high quality images can be stored. HQ: This is a high quality mode using JPEG format, with medium compression. Because the compression rate is higher than SHQ, file sizes are smaller. More images can be saved to a card. The file size can be changed in the 3:2 or Enlarge size mode as well as SHQ. 3:2 Mode: Ordinarily the image aspect ratio is set to 4:3. Due to change the ratio to 3:2, the picture size becomes 2592 x 1728 so that the image can be printed without losing the image borders at a photo lab. 3:2 can be set in the TIFF, SHQ, or HQ mode. SQ1/SQ2: SQ1 is used for resolutions above 1600 x1200 and SQ2 is used for resolutions below 1600 x1200. For both, you can choose high compression to reduce noise or normal compression to save more images.
