Screenshots of the various options screens in the camera application
Here are some screenshots that show the options and settings you can access and set in the camera application. When in camera mode, tapping on the Options button at the lower left will bring up this screen.
Camera mode Options Screen
You can view the various details and change specific settings like image capture resolution, review photo before saving, save image file to handheld or flash memory card, date stamp display on image file enabled or disabled, auto name format of image files, and shutter sound enabled or disabled.
Image resolution drop down menu
This drop down menu allows you to set the resolution of the image file saved. The larger the resolution, the bigger the size of the image file but the sharper the picture can be. Select from the three available resolutions: 160×120, 320×240, 640×480.
Review photo before saving option
This drop down menu option allows you to review the photo captured before having it saved. Select either On or Off to enable or disable this feature. If enabled, there will be a few seconds delay where you can delete the image by clicking on a garbage can image near the bottom. After the few seconds, the image will be stored and saved. You will then need to delete the image from the main menus once it’s saved.
Save To option
This drop down menu option allows you to select which storage medium the picture image files are saved. Select either the handheld (RAM), or external flash memory card (Secure Digital) to indicate the storage medium where images are saved
Date stamp option
This drop down menu option allows you to select whether the date stamp shows up in the picture. Select whether you wish to have the date stamp enabled or disabled. The date stamp will be located at the top right hand corner if enabled.
Auto Name format
This drop down menu option allows you to select how you want the image files to be named. Select from default, which would insert a Set#_##.jpg in the name. Each time the camera slider is opened and an image is taken, the set number will go up by one, to distinguish between the various sets. Or, create your own naming format.
Shutter sound option
This drop down menu option allows you to select whether to enable or disable the shutter sound when a photo is captured.
Advanced controls screen
Clicking on the Advanced button will bring up this screen. A smaller image of what the camera is seeing is shown. You can select and set the white balance, the contrast, and the level of brightness, whether it’s automatically adjusted or manual. When in manual setting, you will need to drag the slider bar to adjust the brightness for the optimum setting.
White balance option
Clicking on the White balance will pop up a drop down menu of options: Automatic, Fluourescent, Indoors, Sunlight. You may need to adjust the white balance for the various environments. Depending on the selection, the image will either have more orange color or blue color.
Where are my Photos?
You’ve taken all those pictures on your Zire 71 and did a hotsync and supposedly, they should have been copied over to the computer. But you can’t find them?
Here’s a few places you can check.
C:\Program Files\Palm\YourHotsyncID\Photos\offline copy location
C:\Documents and Settings\YourComputerLogin\My Documents\My Pictures\palmOne Photos\YourHotsyncID
If you have videos (like a Treo) you may be able to find your videos in here:
C:\Documents and Settings\YourComputerLogin\My Documents\my videos\PalmOne Videos
Replace the YourHotsyncID with your own HotsyncID and YourComputerLogin with the login id of your computer.
Or open up your Palm Desktop and click on the Photos or Media tab and you should see them.
