TAKING FLASH PICTURES
UNLOADING THE FILM
FOR OWNERS OF THE QUARTZ DATE & TIME MODEL
SETTING THE DATE AND TIME
The date and time feature enables you to record the date in a choice of four formats: (month/day/year, day/month/year, year/month/day) or time (day/hour/minute) directly onto the film. It features a quartz clock and automatic calendar through the year 2019, including leap years. With the camera held horizontally, the data is recorded onto the lower right portion of the picture; in the vertical format with the shutter release up, imprinting occurs on the lower left portion but positioned horizontally on the picture. Date and Time Imprinting Press the Mode Button (b), located on the film door (20), to select the desired data type; then take the picture. Following the exposure, the Print Indicator (a) blinks in the data panel for approximately two-to-three seconds to confirm imprinting. NOTE: The imprinted data may be difficult to read if the subject area over which it is superimposed is bright or non-uniform. If the data panel is consistently dim, replace the date-back battery (see Replacing the Date-Back Battery).
Where to Get Help
Using the Self-Timer
When you want to include yourself in the picture, use the self-timer feature. 1. Use the Tripod Socket (19) to attach the camera to a tripod, or place the camera on another firm support. 2. Press the On/Off Button (2) to turn the camera ON. 3. Press the Self-Timer Button (6). The Self-Timer Indicator (26) appears on the LCD Panel (3) and the Self-Timer Lamp (12) glows red.
In dim light, such as indoors or outdoors in heavy shade or on dark overcast days, you need flash. Your camera features automatic flash that fires when you need it. 1. Press the On/Off Button (2) to turn the camera ON. 2. Keep the subject within the distance range for the speed of the film in your camera (see table below). Be careful not to cover the flash, lens, and autofocus windows with your fingers. 3. Press the Shutter Button (1) partway down. If the Flash-Charging Indicator (29) on the LCD Panel (3) âblinks,â the flash is not fully charged. Wait for the blinking to stop and the indicator to disappear before you take the picture.
Within a few seconds after the last picture is taken, the film automatically starts to rewind. The Picture Counter (27) on the LCD Panel (3) blinks â0â when the film is finished rewinding. Wait for the camera motor to stop before you open the film door and remove the film. Reload your camera with fresh Kodak film.

Tips for Better Pictures
â¢ Keep your pictures simple. Move close enough to your subject so it fills the viewfinder but not closer than 0.8 m. â¢ Take pictures at the subjectâs level. Kneel down to take pictures of children and pets. â¢ Hold your camera vertically to capture tall, narrow subjects, such as waterfall, skyscraper, or single person. â¢ Add interest to your picture by framing it with a tree branch, a window, or even the rails of a fence. â¢ Keep the sun behind you. This provides best subject illumination.
