Panorama shooting lets you create a panoramic picture, using the OLYMPUS Master software on the provided CD-ROM. An Olympus xD-Picture Card is required for panorama shooting. Use the arrow pad to specify at which edge you want to connect the pictures; and then compose your shots so that the edges of the pictures overlap. The part of the previous picture where it will be joined to the next picture does not remain in the frame. You have to remember what the part in the frame looked like and take the next picture so it overlaps. ISO......................................................................................................Changing the ISO sensitivity AUTO Sensitivity is automatically adjusted according to the conditions of the subject. 64/100/200/400/ 800/1600/3200 A low value lowers the sensitivity for daylight shooting of clear, sharp pictures. The higher the value, the better the camera’s light sensitivity and ability to shoot with a fast shutter speed and in low light conditions. However, high sensitivity introduces noise into the resulting picture, which may give it a grainy appearance. FINE ZOOM ..............................

EN 43 Getting to know your camera better There are several ways to focus, depending on the subject. When the subject is not in the center of the frame • Place the subject in the center of the frame, lock the focus on the subject, and then recompose your picture. g “Shutter button Shooting pictures/movies” (P. 11) • Set [AF MODE] to [iESP]. g “AF MODE Changing the focusing area” (P. 24) The subject is moving quickly • Focus the camera on a point roughly the same distance away as the subject you want to shoot (by pressing the shutter button halfway); and then recompose your picture and wait for the subject to enter the frame. • Under certain types of conditions, it is difficult to focus using auto focus. In these cases, focus (focus lock) on an object with high contrast at the same distance as the intended subject, recompose your shot and then take the picture. If the subject has no vertical lines, hold the camera vertically and focus the camera using the focus lock function by pressing the shutter button halfway, and then return the camera to the horizontal position while keeping the button pressed halfway and take the picture. Hold the camera correctly and press the shutter button gently to shoot the picture. In addition, blurring is reduced when taking pictures in the h mode. The factors that can cause the picture to blur are as follows: • When you zoom at a high magnification to shoot the picture • When the shutter speed is set low to shoot a dark subject • When the flash cannot be used or a low shutter speed set shooting mode is selected. Most blurry images can be stabilized later. g “PERFECT FIX Editing pictures” (P. 25) The flash fires automatically when insufficient light is available and may cause your image to be blurry. When taking pictures in low light without the flash, set the flash mode to [$] (flash off). g “Y# button Flash shooting” (P. 15) Select a higher value for [ISO] g “ISO Changing the ISO sensitivity” (P. 23) Shooting tips Focusing on the subject Subjects that are difficult to focus on Taking pictures without blurring Taking pictures without the flash Subject with low contrast Subject with an extremely bright area in the center of the frame Subject without vertical lines Subjects at different distances Fast-moving subject The subject is not in the center of the frame d4362_63_e_0000_7.book Page 43 Tuesday, November 13, 2007 8:43 PM

44 EN Getting to know your camera better There are several factors that can cause the picture to appear grainy. Using the digital zoom to take close-up pictures • With the digital zoom, part of the image is cropped and enlarged. The greater the magnification, the grainier the picture appears. Increasing the ISO sensitivity • When you increase the [ISO] setting, “noise”, which appears as spots of unwanted color or unevenness in the color, can be introduced and give the picture a grainy appearance. This camera is equipped with a function to allow shooting at high sensitivity while suppressing noise; however, increasing the ISO sensitivity can result in some noise, depending on the shooting conditions. g “ISO Changing the ISO sensitivity” (P. 23) • The reason why there are sometimes differences between the actual colors and the colors recorded in a picture is related to the light source illuminating the subject. [WB] is the function that helps the camera determine the true colors. Normally, the [AUTO] setting provides the optimal white balance, but depending on the subject, results may be better if you manually adjust the [WB] setting. • When the subject is in the shade on a sunny day • When the subject is illuminated by both natural light and indoor lighting, such as when near a window • When there is no white in the center of the frame g “WB Adjusting the color of a picture” (P. 22) • Often, bright subjects (such as snow) turn out darker than their natural colors. Adjusting OF toward [+] makes the subject closer to their real shades. Conversely, when you are shooting dark subjects, it can be effective to adjust toward [–]. Sometimes, using the flash may not produce the brightness (exposure) that was intended. g “OF/< button Changing picture brightness (Exposure compensation)/Printing pictures” (P. 15) • Set the flash to [#] (fill-in) to activate fill-in-flash. You can shoot a subject against backlight without the face of the subject appearing dark. [#] is effective not only for shooting against backlight, but also for shooting under fluorescent and other artificial lightening. g “Y# button Flash shooting” (P. 15) • Selecting a [+] exposure value with OF is useful in shooting a subject against backlight. g “OF/< button Changing picture brightness (Exposure compensation)/Printing pictures” (P. 15) • When [AF MODE] is set to [FACE DETECT], the camera determines the exposure by metering a face and the face in the picture taken will appear brighter even in backlight conditions. g “AF MODE Changing the focusing area” (P. 24) There are two ways to record the pictures you take with this camera. Recording pictures to the internal memory • Pictures are recorded to the internal memory, and when the number of storable still pictures reaches 0, you connect the camera to a computer to download the pictures; and then erase the pictures from the internal memory. Using a card (xD-Picture Card) (optional) • Pictures are recorded to the card when inserted in the camera. When the card is full, you can download the pictures to a computer and then either erase the pictures from the card or use a new card. • Pictures are not recorded to the internal memory when a card is inserted in the camera. Pictures in the internal memory can be copied to the card using the [BACKUP] function.
