Turn on the projection system using the touch-screen control. Select the document camera from the source menu at the top of the screen.
Raise the camera arm by pulling up on the small blue tab. The lights should come on and the camera head should automatically point straight down at the base. A power button is located to the right rear side of the base.
If necessary, press the power button on the right-rear side of the base (a green light indicates on). The camera's illuminator light should also come on. If it does not, press the 'light' button in the control area. The base surface is sufficiently reflective to allow use of overheads with the top light. Do not write on the base.
Place your work (whatever you'd like to project an image of) on the white work surface. You should see it displayed on the small preview monitor, and on the projector screen.
Adjust the camera settings as needed to display the image as needed. Camera controls are located on the top of the camera head.
- Focus defaults to automatic (green light on). The picture should self-focus and remain in focus as you operate the zoom. There may be a slight delay. The automatic focus can be switched off and the two focus buttons may be used.
- Zoom in and out with the blue wheel at the top of the camera head. There is a digital zoom feature that doubles the range of the mechanical zoom. The camera can resolve an object of about one inch square.
- Freeze holds the picture in memory so you can insert a new page while the old image remains on the screen.
- Slides can be displayed one at a time using the small white surface at the back of the camera base. Place a slide on the white area, tilt the camera head and zoom in on the slide. The slide light is turned on with a quick press of the 'light' button on the right side of the base. A second press turns off the light, a third press turns on the top light.
Please turn off the power with a quick press of the power switch on the side of the base, when you are done. Also, please, lower the camera by pulling the blue tab toward you.
