The lens ring (2) will list the characteristics of the lens. Optical zoom is important because it shows the true ability of the camera to capture distant objects. A digital zoom is handy but the quality of the image degrades quickly. The flash (3) on this camera is located next to the optical view finder (4). Flashes on cameras generally have several modes including normal, redeye, auto and manual. The 5.1 mega pixel refers to the number of dots that make up an image. The more pixels the better. However for web or computer images 1 mega pixel is plenty. 4 Slide 8 Top View Digital Cameras have a number of settings that can be overwhelming. However, only a few buttons are needed to take your first picture. The rest will become more apparent as they are needed. Most cameras will have a power button 1 and a mode selector. This particular Sony P93 camera uses a dial 2 to select modes. Generally the camera icon 3 represents the mode for normal picture shooting. Playback is shown as the Play 4 button you see on a DVD or CD player 1 3 2 4 Slide 9 Side View Digital Cameras must have a power supply. This camera uses standard AA size batteries (1). It can also use rechargeable AA batteries that will extend shooting time dramatically. Some cameras use rechargeable batteries that are non-standard or proprietary. Make sure these batteries are available and that it comes with the camera. They can be expensive. To the left of the battery compartment is the memory stick slot (2). Cameras use a variety of memory devices. Sony uses a Memory Stick. Other types include Compact Flash, Compact Flash II, and SD. Older memory devices can be difficult to purchase. 1 2 Slide 10 Back View The back of the camera contains the majority of the controls. Most cameras have a zoom control labeled T and W for tight and wide(1). Other buttons may include a flash control, menu button, macro control, and buttons for scrolling left and right (2). Input and output connections are located on the back of this Sony. They include the Power connection, the USB and the A/V (3). The LCD panel (4) allows you to view the image exactly as it will appear when the image saves. These panels have gotten larger with newer cameras. It does consume power so the optical viewfinder (5) can be used in place of the panel 1 3 2 4 5 Slide 11 Accessories The Sony CyberShot uses standard AA batteries and must be removed to be recharged. Memory devices are included with a camera generally, but are fairly small in capacity. This particular Memory stick was only 32 MB. In high resolution the CyberShot will use around 2 MB per picture. Slide 12 A Geometry Scavenger Hunt Focus: TLW make a list of some shapes that are visible from their seat. Objective: TLW will find a set of geometric shapes in the environment and take digital pictures of the shapes to create a PowerPoint presentation labeling the shapes.
