As long as the subject is located within the Area-AF focus frame, even if it is not centered, the camera will automatically locate the subject and indicate it with the focus-area indicator. The shape of focus-area indicator varies with the subject shape, see the sample illustrations below.
Because of parallax, the image seen in the viewfinder and the image recorded with the camera are not exactly the same. Parallax becomes significant with close subjects. A close-framing guide automatically appears in the viewfinder when the image needs to be recomposed to eliminate the effect of parallax. The close-framing guide appears in Area AF, spot AF, and target AF.
Actual image (shaded area) If the subject is too close, the green focus lamp blinks
rapidly and the shutter is locked. If the subject is extremely close, the green focus lamp may blink slowly and the shutter will release, but the focus will not be sharp.
BASIC OPERATION 1. With the focus-area indicator on the subject, press and hold the shutter release button partway down.
The green focus lamp should glow to confirm the focus is locked.
2. While pressing the shutter-release button partway down, recompose the picture so that the top of the subject falls below the close-framing guide. Press the shutterrelease button all the way down to take the picture.
REWINDING THE FILM
The camera automatically rewinds the film after the last exposure is taken.
When the cartridge mark blinks on the data panel, the film has been rewound. Open the back cover and remove the film.

The world s most revolutionary compact camera with super-wide AREA-AF a feature that finds human subjects and displays focus in viewfinder.
The heart warming human
portrait. Finally perfected by a compact camera.
The RIVA ZOOM 140 boasts the worlds first AREA-AF*1. Youll blow them up. Frame them. Hang them
proudly from your walls. Amazingly, a compact camera now puts those elusive perfect portrait shots easily within your grasp. The RIVA ZOOM 140. For starters, its revolutionary AREA-AF ensures the camera is always focused on your subject. Artistic composing and quick shooting is also possible because of its worlds largest focus area*2 and worlds fastest autofocus speed*3. Picture-taking is further enhanced by a powerful 3.7X zoom lens and its incredibly simple, point-and-shoot operation. The RIVA ZOOM 140. The perfect shot, finally perfected by a compact camera.
(*1 As of Jan.1, 2002. *2 Among all film cameras. *3 Among all compact film cameras with 3X or larger zoom lens as of Jan.1, 2002.)
37.5mm - 140mm 3.7X Zoom
By finding and confirming your subject, the RIVA ZOOM 140 lets you take the most creative shots.
Visually confirms focal point.
Regardless of where your subjects are in the viewfinder, left, centre or right, the AREA-AFs matrix AF indicator displays the specific area of focus with a box-shaped, red LED that encompasses your subject, reassuring you of perfect focus.
The worlds first high-performance AREA-AF. With a
focus area wider than on any high-priced SLR camera, you can quickly and freely compose any kind of shot while the camera simultaneously detects and focuses on your subject. Then, the area of focus is displayed in the viewfinder using a box-shaped, red LED. Furthermore, since autoexposure is fully linked to its autofocus, the camera adjusts precisely to ensure every picture is consistently beautiful.

Indulge your creative side
with these advanced functions.
The worlds widest focus area16X wider than conventional types. To compose shots spontaneously and
without worry, you need a wide focus area. And thanks to our newly developed multi-line AF sensor consisting of 7 line sensors, youll enjoy flexible shooting with the widest AF area of any film camera.
(The focus area is 30% vertically and 50% horizontally of the entire viewfinder screen.)
The worlds first subject-detection* and subject-weighted, multi-segment metering. By using 7 line sensors which
recognises human subjects, the cameras subject-detection algorithm knows where to focus. Each sensor performs both exposure metering and focusing. This linkage means the multi-segment metering can set the exposure more precisely for focal length and subject, resulting in more accurate exposure metering.
(*Among all film cameras.)
Night Portrait Mode. Take outstanding night shots using
this mode. It works by providing a more balanced exposure, so you get all the details from either a night or a sunset background shot.
How AREA-AF Works
Where subject shape is recognised
New Slim Flash With Red-Eye Reduction. The worryfree flash goes off automatically when lighting is insufficient, even in tricky backlit situations. Plus, new technology has also reduced its size. The red-eye reduction feature also minimises the dreaded red-eye effectgiving your subjects a more natural look.
A red LED box displays area of focus and exposure in viewfinder
Matrix AF indicationanother worlds first among all compact film cameras. Our latest technology enables the
camera to display the area of focus and exposure by using a fine pattern transmission-type LCD. Plus, superimposition indication is continuously updated with new distance information. A bold, red LED indicates the area of focus.
Remote Control (Date Model Only). The IR Remote
Control RC-3* with immediate and 2-second delay lets you shoot without having to hold the camera from as far away as 5 metres.
(* IR Remote Control RC-3 is optional.)
Eye-start automation and worlds fastest AF among all compact film cameras. By simply aiming the camera, this feature
automatically activates the focusing and metering systems, which in turn greatly reduces the shutter-release time lag. Further increasing its autofocus speedmaking it the worlds fastest in its classis an advanced 32-bit RISC CPU.
Both the RIVA ZOOM 140 & 160 models are equipped with the world's first AREA-AF system.
