Reflection

I absolutely enjoyed photojournalism class. I wish I could continue to take this course next semester, but unfortunately I can't. I have learned a lot from this class that I didn't think I would need to know. Not only did I learn how to take photographs, I learned about the history of photography and cameras.

Camera Operations

Power On/Off : To turn the camera on/off, there is a switch in the top right of the camera. Pull the switch to the right and hold it until the screen turns on/off. If turning off, put the lens cover on the lens after turning off.

Macro/Super Macro: To get good and clear photographs up close, use macro/super macro. Press the left arrow button at the right of the camera. That will bring you to a choice of 3 macro settings. Off,Macro, and Super Macro. To take photographs up close to a couple inches, use macro. To take photographs up close to about a couple centimeters, use super macro. You can also use the zoom switch instead of getting up close. To use the zoom witch, it is a switch on the outer of the button used to capture a photo at the top right of your camera.

Battery Replacement: To replace your battery, look under the camera. There should be a little door on the right. Pull the switch down and slide the little door to the right and lift up to reveal the battery compartment. The battery compartment contains 4 slots for the batteries. Make sure two batteries are facing with the butt up, and two facing with the butt down. To close, push the little door down and slide to the left. You should be able to hear a little click.

SD Card: To insert/eject the SD card, look at the bottom of the camera. There should be a little door on the right. Pul the switch down and slide the little door to the right and lift up to reveal the battery compartment. At the very top of the compartment, there should be a little slot. To insert the SD card and push it in until the card fits in the slot. To eject the SD card, push down and release, the card should pop up for you to take out. Then close the little door by pushing down and sliding it to the left. A clicking noise should be made.

View Photos: To view your photos, look at the bottom right of your camera. There should be a button with a rectangle with a triangle in it. Press that button to view you photos. To exit just press the photo capture button quickly.
