Re: Why does my Fun! Digital 320 camera hold more than 18...
The literature packaged with the Polaroid Fun! Digital 320 camera does indicate that the maximum number of images is 18. However, the actual number of images is, in part, dependent on the complexity of the scenes you are trying to capture.
Scenes that are complex (contain a high degree of detail) require more space on the camera's memory chip. Photos of less complex scenes (not much detail in the photo) take up a lesser amount of the camera's memory, freeing up space for additional images to be stored.

The following is a listing of the error codes you might see on the status panel of the PhotoMAX Fun! Digital 320 camera:
1.FL - Photo memory is full.
You cannot take more photos. Download and then erase the photos in your camera.
2.FE - Flash memory error.
A camera hardware error occurred. This can happen when the power is shut off before a photo is completely stored in the camera. Do not shut off the power until the green light comes back on steady after you take a photo.
3.bE - Hardware problem.
Turn the power switch on and off and see if the error message disappears. If the error message persists, the camera may need to be replaced.
4.Lo - Battery low.
Replace the camera battery as soon as possible. If you continue to use the camera, picture quality will be poor.
5.LL - Low light condition.
The camera does not have enough light to take a good photo. Improve the subject lighting if possible. Example: When taking indoor photos, add additional room lighting.
None of the Polaroid digital cameras listed below can be used as a
"web cam." All of these models are designed for taking still images only.

Blurry images can be caused by any or all of the following:
* Distance/Focus range -- the Fun! Digital 320 has a fixed focus range of 3 - 6 feet (1.8 meters) for brightly lit indoor photography, 3 ft. (1 meter) - infinity for outdoor photography. For best results, make sure that the camera is at least 3 feet away from the subject(s) when taking pictures.
* Camera/Subject movement -- This is a common cause of blurriness, especially in low-light situations (see Lighting below). Hold the camera as steadily as possible while taking a photo, or use a tripod (a tripod mount is located on the bottom of the camera). Avoid subjects that are in motion.
* Insufficient lighting -- the Fun! Digital 320 is designed for taking photos outdoors or in brightly lit environments. Inadequate lighting can exaggerate camera movement and contribute to blurred, "muddied," or uncrisp images.
* Lens condition -- Check the lens periodically for smudges. If necessary, wipe the lens clean with a soft, lint-free cloth. Do not use cleaning solutions or chemically treated tissues.
* Enlarging images using software -- otherwise normal digital images can appear to become blurry and/or blotchy when over-enlarged in software. To see an image's "true" appearance, use the software's Zoom In or Zoom Out feature to view it at 100%.
This error or system hang-up is usually caused by:
1. the camera driver software attempting to read a corrupted photo; or
2. there are too many photo thumbnails stored in the PhotoMAX temporary storage area.
In either case, the problem can be corrected by manually deleting the Fun! Digital 320 camera thumbnails from the Polaroid Album (using the Windows Explorer or My Computer icons).
Follow these steps to delete the Fun! Digital 320 temporary files:
Step 1 -- Locate the temporary photo files
If you are familiar with Windows Explorer, simply browse directly to:
C:\Program Files\Polaroid\PhotoMAX SE\Digital 320
If you are new to browsing the file system, follow these steps:
1. Double-click on the My Computer icon on the desktop.
2. Double-click on the C: drive.
3. Double-click on the Program Files folder.
4. Double-click on the Polaroid folder.
5. Double-click on the PhotoMAX SE folder.
6. Double-click on the Digital 320 folder.
Step 2 -- Delete the temporary photo files
Inside the Digital 320 folder, you will see many files, most of which will be bitmap image files. All of the bitmap files that start with dsc_ (example: dsc_005.bmp) must be deleted.
To delete the files, you can either drag them into the Recycle Bin, or highlight each file by single-clicking on it and pressing the Delete key on the keyboard. To select multiple files at once, hold down the Shift key on the keyboard as you click on them, then press Delete.
IMPORTANT: Do not delete the following files from the Digital 320 folder:
* Polaroid Album.exe
A new camera TWAIN driver (version 2.2L) compatible with Windows 2000 is now available for download. The new TWAIN driver will allow photo transfer using most image viewing or editing programs that are TWAIN compatible.
