Brightness Exposure compensation
The camera automatically determines the aperture value and shutter speed according to the brightness level. This is called auto exposure. However, you may not be able to capture the intended picture with auto exposure alone. In this case, you can increase or decrease the auto exposure setting. Compensate the exposure toward + to enhance the brightness of a summer beach or the whiteness of snow. Compensate the exposure toward when the area to be shot is brighter but smaller compared to its surrounding area. If you are unsure of how much exposure compensation is required, try taking several pictures at various settings and then compare the pictures. gExposure compensation (P. 48), AE bracketing (P. 49)
E-450_MASTER.fm Seite 32 Donnerstag, 16. April 2009 10:40 10
Color White balance
Besides sunlight, there are other sources for illuminating the subject, such as tungsten and fluorescent lighting. These types of lighting contain particular colors; therefore, the same white object shot under different lighting has slightly different colors. Even under the same sunlight, the colors in the picture differ depending on the sky conditions, the shadows of trees or buildings, and other factors. White balance automatically corrects the effects from these types of lighting and enables shooting with the right colors. You can usually obtain the right colors with the white balance set to [AUTO]. Depending on the shooting conditions, however, you may not be able to obtain the intended colors. In this case, change the setting accordingly. gSelecting the white balance (P. 60)

A guide to functions for different subjects
This section describes the functions suitable under different shooting conditions depending on the subject.
Taking landscape pictures
This section describes how to take outdoor scenery pictures of forests, lakes and beaches in daylight. Changing shooting mode The proper shooting method varies depending on whether you are trying to capture the silence of a still scene or the dynamism of a motion scene. To capture the depth of a forest, focus with a wider range of the image. Use A (aperture priority shooting) mode and close the aperture (increase the aperture value) as much as possible. To capture the waves crashing against the seashore, use S (shutter priority shooting) mode and select a fast shutter speed. To capture a flowing waterfall or river, shoot using a slow shutter speed. Exposure compensation can be used even under different shooting modes. Check the image that you have shot and use + or to adjust the exposure to obtain better results.
Simultaneous use of S-AF mode and MF mode (S-AF+MF)
This function allows you to fine-adjust the focus manually by turning the focus ring after AF is performed in the S-AF mode. When the shutter button is not pressed, MF operation is available. You can fine-adjust the focus with the focus ring if you have pressed the shutter button halfway and AF is confirmed.
If the shutter button is pressed again after fine-adjusting the focus with the focus ring, the AF is activated and your adjustments are canceled.

Focus lock If correct focus cannot be obtained
The cameras auto focus may not be able to focus on the subject in situations such as when the subject is not in the center of the frame. If this happens, the easiest solution is to use focus lock. Use this when composing the subject outside of the AF targets or when the subject is difficult to focus on.
Adjust the AF target with the subject to be focused and press the shutter button halfway until the AF confirmation mark lights up.
The focus is locked. The AF confirmation mark and the AF target in focus light up in the viewfinder. If the AF confirmation mark blinks, press the shutter button halfway again. While the shutter button is being pressed, the super control panel disappears.
e.g.) The camera focuses using the center AF target.
While pressing the shutter button halfway, move to the desired composition and press the button all the way.

Selecting the white balance
Color reproduction differs depending on the light conditions. For instance, when daylight or tungsten lighting is reflected on white paper, the shade of white produced will be slightly different for each. With a digital camera, white color can be adjusted to reproduce more natural white with a digital processor. This is called white balance. There are 4 options for setting the WB with this camera. Auto white balance [AUTO] This function enables the camera to automatically detect white in images and adjust the color balance accordingly. Use this mode for general use. Preset white balance     [w] [x] [y] [n] 8 different color temperatures are programmed on this camera covering a variety of indoor and outdoor lighting including fluorescent lights, light bulbs, and flashes. For example, use preset WB when you want to reproduce more red in the picture of a sunset, or capture a warmer artistic effect under artificial lighting.

Flash intensity control
The flash intensity can be adjusted from +3 to 3. In some situations (e.g., when shooting small subjects, distant backgrounds, etc.), you may get better results by adjusting the amount of light emitted by the flash (flash intensity). It is useful when you intend to increase the contrast (distinction between light and dark) of images to make the images more vivid.

PictBridge A standard that enables digital cameras and printers made by different manufacturers to be connected, and also allows pictures to be printed directly from the camera. Pixels A pixel is the smallest unit (dot) used to make up an image. Clear large-sized printed images require millions of pixels. RAW Refers to raw data, data which has not been enhanced with a camera option like white balance, sharpness, contrast, etc. This file format is for viewing and processing with our own software. You may not be able to open or process these files with other graphics software applications, and these files cannot be selected for DPOF printing. RAW files are assigned an orf file extension (*.orf). S (Shutter Priority) Mode Also called Shutter Priority AE mode. The user selects the shutter speed and the camera automatically varies the aperture so that the picture is taken with the best exposure. Single-lens reflex camera A camera that uses a mirror to reflect the light entering from the shooting lens so the image can be checked in the viewfinder. There is no difference between the composition to be captured and the composition viewed on the viewfinder. Sleep Mode A mode designed to save battery life. The camera automatically enters the sleep mode if you do not operate it for a certain time. To get out of the sleep mode, use any button on the camera (shutter button, menu button, etc.). Spot metering The meter reading is taken from a very small area around the center of the subject, defined by the spot metering area mark in the viewfinder. Spot metering is ideal for use in difficult light conditions, or when the important element of the picture (subjects face) is small. Use spot metering for backlit subjects, or sports and stage performers. See also digital ESP metering and center weighted averaging metering. TFT (Thin-Film Transistor) Color Monitor A color monitor constructed using thin-film technology. TTL phase-contrast detection system This is used to measure the distance to the subject. The camera determines if the image is focused by the detected phase contrast. TTL (Through-The-Lens) System To help adjust exposure, a light receptor built into the camera directly measures the light passing through the lens.

A strip of light may appear on the top/bottom of the monitor, but this is not a malfunction. When a subject is viewed diagonally in the camera, the edges may appear zigzagged on the monitor. This is not a malfunction; it will be less noticeable in playback mode. In places subject to low temperatures, the LCD monitor may take a long time to turn on or its color may change temporarily. When using the camera in extremely cold places, it is a good idea to occasionally place it in a warm place. An LCD monitor exhibiting poor performance due to low temperatures will recover in normal temperatures. The LCD used for the monitor is made with high-precision technology. However, black spots or bright spots of light may appear constantly on the LCD Monitor. Due to its characteristics or the angle at which you are viewing the monitor, the spot may not be uniform in color and brightness. This is not a malfunction.
Do not immerse in water or splash with water. Do not drop or exert strong force on the lens. Do not hold at the moving part of the lens. Do not touch the lens surface directly. Do not touch the contact points directly. Do not subject to abrupt temperature changes. The operating temperature range is 10 C 40 C (14 F 104 F). Always use within this temperature range.

Olympus Rolls Out New E-450 Entry-Level DSLR
The successor of the E-420 model
Given the rather unstable economic situation the world is going through right now, the truth of the matter is that entry-level products, which target mostly mainstream consumers on a rather limited budget, are the best bet for the various consumer electronic manufacturers out there. And that's also the case with Olympus, which has just brought to the market a brand new DSLR camera model designed specifically for the entry-level segment, the E-450. The new DSLR from Olympus builds on the platform of the previous E-420 model but adds some interesting extras. The sensor remains the same (10-megapixel), while the digital camera makes use of Olympus' TruePic III+ Image Processor, which, besides processing the images at very high speeds, also lowers image noise by one step to reduce graininess in images shot at higher ISO settings, enabling improved results in low-light situations. Another interesting set of features offered by the E-450 is represented by the Art Filter, which allows users to take artistic shots with the DSLR without having to worry too much about the specific settings. These filters (Pop Art, Soft Focus and Pin Hole) are built into the camera and offer users individual artistic control over an image, thus removing the need to spend time altering images on the computer with editing software. According to Olympus, the E-450 packs a fairly extensive range of advanced imaging technologies, which will help the photographer make the most out of these shots. For example, the On-Screen Autofocus works as seamlessly as a point-and-shoot to display subjects in focus on the LCD the instant the shutter is pressed half-way, while the included Face Detection Technology targets and locks on up to eight faces to ensure they are in focus and clear. Moreover, the HyperCrystal II Technology delivers twice the contrast and better viewing in extreme lighting conditions, a broader range of color detail, and a wider angle of view on the LCD, while the Shadow Adjustment Technology captures detail in the bright areas of a frame and opens up detail in the shadows. Finally, the Perfect Shot Preview enables one to view and select their favorite effect right on the LCD, and see how the image will look before capturing it. The Olympus E-450 DSLR is slated to arrive in stores at some point over the course of July 2009 and will have a very attractive price point, namely just around 700 US dollars, which is indeed quite OK, especially taking into account the fact that the sales package will include, besides the DSLR's body, an ED 14-42mm f3.5/5.6 Zuiko Digital Zoom Lens, ED 40-150mm f4.0/5.6 Zuiko Digital Zoom Lens, USB Cable, Video Cable, Li-Ion Battery Pack (BLS-1), Li-Ion Battery Charger (BCS-1), Shoulder Strap, OLYMPUS Master 2 Software CD-ROM, Manuals and Warranty Card.

Shadow Adjustment Technology The E-450 has Shadow Adjustment Technology that compensates for extreme contrast when shadow areas are underexposed and lack visible detail. Dust Reduction Olympus' proven Dust Reduction System produces spot-free photos with the exclusive Supersonic Wave Filter . Digital Image Stabilization The E-450's Digital Image Stabilization, activated as a Scene Select Mode, allows high ISO sensitivity and faster shutter speeds so you can freeze the action to capture sharp, blur-free images even if you or your subject is moving.
