Chapter 4 - Connecting to a Computer
The 3765 camera stores images as digital data rather than on film. Instead of making a trip to a developer and printing from negatives, you can copy your images to a computer for storage. Once transferred, your images can be viewed, edited, printed, sent via e-mail, placed on a web page, added to a report, uploaded to a photo-processor, or saved to any removable media device (such as floppy disk or CD-ROM) for delivery to a photo finisher. After successfully transferring images to your computer, images stored on the memory card or in the camera's internal memory may be deleted to make room for new images. This chapter explains how to connect your digital camera to a computer to download images to a PC or to use as a PC Camera. Do not connect the camera to your computer before installing the software. This may cause installation problems. It is best to install the software from the CD-ROM prior to connecting the camera to your computer. The 3765 interfaces to your computer in either of two modes: 1) A mass storage device (a removable disk) 2) A PC (web) camera (PC users only) This section explains how to connect your camera in either of these two modes. As a mass storage device you will be able
Switching to Playback Mode to access and view your images (photos), whereas the PC camera mode is for live video. Which mode do you use? If you are interested in retrieving your digital images (images) from your camera you will need to use the mass-storage mode. If you wish to use your digital camera as a video camera where live (real-time) video is displayed on your computer use the PC camera mode.
Mass Storage Device. MSD is a name given to a USB product (like a digital camera) that works with your computer as if it was a removable disk. In essence the computer sees your camera as if it were a floppy disk or a CD ROM. The concept is simple. Think of the memory inside your camera as if it were a floppy disk (or a Zip disk, or a CD ROM). Think of the camera as a reader. When you connect an MSD device to a computer it will appear as a new drive. Go to My Computer and observe the various drives. For example: 3-1/2 floppy drive (A:) Local disk (C:) CD ROM (D:) Removable disk (E:) This is the Camera Memory
PC Camera. The 3765 allows you to view live video from your camera on your computer using optional (third-party) video software. This mode is supported on Windows PCs only. 27

Operating System Windows 98, 98SE Windows Me, 2000, XP Mac OSX Desktop/LX (Linux) MSD Driver required No Driver required No Driver required No Driver required PC Camera Driver required Driver required Feature not supported Feature not supported
Note that Windows Me, 2000, and XP users do not need drivers to operate the camera in MSD mode, whereas drivers are required for PC Camera operation. Note: Have your Windows CD-ROM ready beforehand, as you may be prompted to insert it during the installation process.
Installing Software Step 1: Utility Installation 1. Insert the V3765 CD into your CD-ROM drive. Don't connect the camera to the PC at this time. 2. The installation program should start automatically. If not, double click the My Computer icon on your desktop, open the CD-ROM drive, and then run the 'setup.exe' found on the installation CD-ROM. 3. Follow the on-screen instructions. All the necessary software is installed automatically. The utility program that allow the camera to 'talk' to the computer via the USB cable are also installed. Step 2: MSD / PC Camera Driver Installation 1. To install the necessary drivers for Mass Storage Device (MSD) mode (for Windows 98 users) and PC Camera mode (all Windows users), first set the correct operational mode for that function. For example, set the Mode Dial to PC Camera mode to install those drivers, and to any other mode to install Mass Storage Device drivers. 2. Connect the small connector of the USB cable to the camera, as shown:
3. Connect the large end of the USB cable to an open USB slot on your computer. To locate USB slots on your computer, look for the USB icon.
4. The Windows Add Hardware Wizard will automatically detect the camera and lead you through the installation procedures for each camera mode. 5. You will need to do this once for each mode (PC/web Camera and MSD mode.) NOTE: You should reboot your computer before using camera and software for the first time. Remember to connect your camera to the PC with the USB cable before downloading images. 30
Copying Images to your Computer
When connected to your computer in MSD mode, the digital camera behaves exactly like any another disk drive attached to your computer. This makes copying the images to your hard drive as easy as copying files from a floppy disk, zip drive or CD-ROM. To copy images to your computer: 1. Connect the digital camera to the computer with the USB cable. 2. Turn on the camera. 3. Open Windows Explorer. The contents of your computer will be displayed, including all your disk drives, and, if the camera is connected properly, an extra disk drive representing the camera's memory called "Removable Disk." 4. Select the digital camera drive. The camera's images are listed. Select the images and drag and drop them onto your computer's hard disk.
PC/Web Camera Mode
Windows PC users can use the 3765 as a PC/Web Camera, you must put the camera in PC Camera mode and then connect it to your PC via the USB port. When connected, the camera may be used in conjunction with any commercially available video 31
V3765 Digital Camera Users Manual capture software to create your own home videos. Windows XP users can use Windows Movie Maker. PC Camera mode can also be used with real-time video conferencing software such as Microsoft NetMeeting. NOTE: To use your camera as a PC/web Camera you must set the camera to PC Camera mode. To use the camera in MSD mode, you can use any of the modes other than PC Camera mode. CAUTION: Do not disconnect the USB cable when the digital camera is functioning as a PC Camera (i.e. when an application window shows live camera video, or when the application is recording video). Unexpected problems could result.
Chapter 5 - Mode / Operation Guide
The 3765 camera has six operational modes. Select a mode by rotating the Mode Dial to the desired position. This chapter describes each mode and associated button functions.
Capture mode is the most commonly used mode, offering the most automatic operation. The basic principles of photography apply to this mode. Capture mode button functions: Up Button: Increases the exposure value (eV), overriding the automatic exposure determination, effectively brightening the image. Down Button: Decreases the exposure value, (eV), overriding the automatic exposure determination, effectively darkening the image. Display Button: Cycles through the following LCD display settings: LCD with complete status information, include histogram, LCD without status information or histogram, LCD off. Strobe / Copy: Specifies the strobe (flash) mode. Pressing the Strobe key cycles through the settings: Automatic, On (Fill), Auto with Red-Eye Reduction, Off.

Pressing the WB key cycles through the following settings: Automatic, Day Light, Shade, Tungsten (incandescent), and Fluorescent Light. Zoom Out: Widens the field framed by the camera's lens from 3x to 1x. Zoom In: Narrows the field framed by the camera's lens optically from 1x to 3x in eight steps. After reaching the extent of the optical zoom you may also zoom digitally from 1x to 4x in steps of 0.2.
Movie mode allows you record movie-clips (including audio). To record a video clip: 1. Turn the Mode Dial to the Movie mode. 2. When the LCD screen comes on, frame your shot. 3. Press the Shutter Button to begin recording. Press the Shutter Button a second time to stop recording. Note that the camera will stop recording when memory is full. You may zoom in and out digitally when recording videos but you cannot zoom optically. While capturing video you may use zoom as follows: Digital zoom: You may change the digital zoom from 1x to 2x in steps of 0.2 while recording. 34
Preset Mode Optical zoom: You may set the optical zoom from 1x to 3x prior to recording. Note that you must set the optical zoom before recording. Once you begin recording the optical zoom cannot be changed. / while recording a Pressing the Up and Down buttons video increases and decreases the lens' exposure value, which brightens or darkens the video.
The Preset Mode has five pre-defined settings optimized for capturing specific types of scenes: Landscape, Portrait, Night Scene, Self-Timer, and Macro. Select the Preset appropriate to the scene you wish to capture using the Up / buttons. Press the Shutter button to make and Down a selection. Each of the five Preset-types are described in the following sections.
The landscape preset is optimized for capturing landscape images where the desired object is far away. The lens will be adjusted for appropriate focus within the frame.
The portrait preset is optimized for capturing "head shots" of people, focusing more on the center of the frame than on the peripheral areas.
The night scene preset is optimized for capturing images at night, opening the lens aperture wider and longer to gather as much ambient light as possible. You should hold the camera perfectly still when capturing night shot or place it on a stable surface or tripod to minimize blurring resulting from the longer exposure.
Using the self-timer preset the camera captures an image after a ten second delay. This gives you the ability to capture hands-free images, such as self-portraits or group images. To Capture a Group Image 1. Position the camera on a stable surface or on a tripod and frame the shot. 2. Rotate the Mode Dial to Preset mode 36
Playback Mode 3. Use the Up and Down buttons to select the SelfTimer Preset. 4. Press the Shutter Button. The 10-second delay begins immediately. After ten-seconds the camera captures the image.

The New York Auto Show 2005
Photos by: Sondjata Olatunji
Went to the Car Show t his year. Decided to take some pictures of things that caught my eye and those I had the patience to deal with crowds. The Maseratti section has to be the most highly trafced area of the Auto Show. Second or possibly rivaling Maseratti is VW. Last year they had a Kiosk that made a fake drivers license for you. I presume they did it again. I did not take pictures or stand in line.this time.
Gotta Love the Chevy PT Cruiser. I mean. well.I dont know but it denitely screams PT to me.
The original. For comparison purposes. Not that I like either one. I was just struck by the obvious similarities
The Chrysler Crossre is a car that, if I were back in the market for a new car to replace my current covertible would make me consider an American car. This is basically A SLK in Dodge skin. It has a unique shape and well designed headlights. The tail is a little odd shaped though
Speaking of the SLK. Daimler-Benz has released a new version of the vehicle. It is said they redesigned it to attract more male buyers. I never thought the previous version was girly but hey, who am I? Note the nose that is reminiscient of the supercar.
Speaking of supercars
Zoom Zoom Zoom!
The Miata is dead!! Long live the MX5!! Mazda USA has decided to nix the Miata name and call the little roadster a more manly MX5. I guess in some parallel universe its called the 525.
If y ou are from yard! you know Land Rover: also known as jeep. A must have if you live in the Blule Mountains. No cars. While I despise SUVs I have to acknowledge my facination with the jeep. I even devoted many a day in my summers in Jamaica to playing jeep. Yet what was on the hook was Land Rover.
As we move onto the Saturn booth, I must take a computer break. You are NOT a Mac die hard if you cant spot the Mac. Yes folks Saturn was using Imac G5s for thier display. I just needed to point that out.
The Sky Is Falling!
Saturn is branching out from its original ideas and is going upmarket. This is the Sky and it too is something that would make me consider an American car. The full picture I took came out blurry, but take my word for it THIS is a nice car. And for folks wondering, it has a 4 cylinder. Saturn! Listen up! Put a six in there STAT!!
The Saab 900, now 93, was one of the rst cars that I got to drive. I was in Michigan and a friend of mine had a white 900 turbo. Manual Transmission of course. When I saw the ignition between the seats I said to self: cooooool. Never got to drive the car but it stuck with me. Of course now Saabs are losing their trademark shape but the cabriolet is still a ne piece of machinery.
This is the new Jaguar Advanced Lightweight Coupe. Which is really an Aston Martin with a cat on it. Still looks nice to me.
Ford Mustang. Not my favorite car but I think this is a decent design
We now come to the main event. The primary reason I went to the car show was to see the new 3 series. I was already relieved that it did not recieve the 7 treatment. ( as if I was in the market for one.) Rather it got the 5 treatment which in my opinion is a good thing. A lot of people are hating on the 5 series. I think its a piece of art.
This is design folks.
One of the interesting thing about this shot is the brakes. On many High end import vehicles the brakes use 4 piston calipers. Here on the 330ci there is a relatively simple set up. BMW engineers stated that the issue with braking is nor clamping force but rather tire grip and control. Thus they eschew the use of many pistons in the calipers.
This is one of the original 3 series racing cars.
Thats all folks. Some parting shots of my car.
All pictures taken with a Vivitar Vivicam 3765. All pictures taken at 3MP and not color corrected in any way. The full spread photos of the M5, Jaguar Advanced Coupe and Mustang are composite photos.
