STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR OPERATING YOUR FIRST DIGITAL CAMERA 1. READ YOUR CAMERA MANUAL before taking any photographs. 2. Check your batteries. Make sure to either recharge or replace them if you haven't used your camera as yet or for an extended period. 3. Insert your storage media card in the appropriate slot. If you forget to insert your media card, you'll get a "No Card" message. 4. Remove the lens cap. 5. Turn the camera on by either an on-off switch or a sliding lens cover. 6. Turn off the LCD. (See your camera manual for instructions) 7. Make sure your camera is set for automatic mode. Set the image quality to the size image desired-HQ (high quality) or less (to take more pictures on the same card). 8. Bring the camera up to your eye and look through the viewfinder. Positioning the target mark in the center of the viewfinder on your subject will assure that it will be in focus. 9. Push the zoom lever toward W (wide angle) to shoot wide-angle shots or push it toward the T (telephoto) to zoom in. 10. Press the shutter button half way down gently and confirm that the green light next to the viewfinder is illuminated. 11. Press the shutter button all the way down. You'll hear a beep when you take a picture. Wait until the green light stops flashing before taking another one. Remember, digital cameras have a slight delay that traditional cameras don't since it takes a second to save the image to your camera's storage media card. 12. Turn off the camera. Your new photograph should appear on your camera's LCD screen. TIPS: 1. Use the viewfinder to compose your photograph, not the LCD screen, which will severely drain your battery power. Use your LCD screen only when shooting close-up photographs. 2. Hold your camera steady. Sometimes, the least amount of movement will cause your photo to be slightly blurred. Purchase a very small tripod so that you can provide extra stability for your camera. Also, if there isn't enough light (indoors or outdoors), make sure to use your camera's flash. 3. Experiment with your camera's features and take notes so that you can learn what works for you. Do this before you plan to use it for an important family event or trip.
Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.
There are a couple issues related to "slow" that I have with my C-750, and this is how I get around them.
One is the write speed to the xD card. This can prevent you from taking sequential pictures quickly, as the camera displays the current picture it is writing until it finishes. You can make the image of the current picture go away and use your viewfinder again, while the camera is writing the picture, by pressing the shutter button halfway and releasing it. Then you can see your subject in the viewfinder again!
Second is the delay between the time the shutter button is pressed and the time the shutter actually opens (when the camera actually takes the picture). This can be fixed by lining up your shot and pressing the shutter button halfway and holding it for a few seconds. This will give the camera time to adjust and lock focus, shutter speed, etc. There is a small green dot on the display below the battery indicator which will blink a few times when the button is pressed halfway, then remain on steady. When the green dot is steady, the camera is ready. Press the shutter button, and the camera should immediately take the picture.
If you turn on the back LCD, the electronic viewfinder will remain on while in a shooting mode. There is no setting on the camera to use only the back LCD monitor while shooting. If you playback images in the Play mode, only the LCD monitor will turn on. However, if you press the Monitor button while in the Play mode, than the back LCD monitor will turn off. The image will display only in the viewfinder LCD.
When DIGITAL ZOOM is set to ON in the MODE MENU, the lens can zoom into the Digital Zoom portion of the zoom by pressing the zoom (T) button. When you see the zoom indicator on LCD enter the red portion (towards Tele), the image in the viewfinder will become closer. However, since the D-630 is using the digital portion of the zoom, the lens doesn't physically zoom, it takes the existing image and enlarges your image using an electronic program. This can result in a “noisy” or “grainy” look to the image. This is normal when using the DIGITAL ZOOM. The DIGITAL ZOOM can be turned OFF to prevent you from using this portion of the zoom. Locate DIGITAL ZOOM in the Mode Menu and set it to OFF.
When you press the “T” zoom button, the image in the viewfinder will become closer. However, since the D-435 uses a digital zoom, the lens doesn't physically zoom, it takes the existing image and enlarges your image using an electronic program. This can result in a “noisy” or “grainy” look to the image, which is normal when using the digital zoom.
