you would use a standard pair of binoculars for, the CaptureView
will see and give you the added advantage of capturing the

What programs can I use to manipulate my images?
Can I use them to download images from my Camera?
A: You can use the software programs that are provided
on the CD Rom that comes with the CaptureView Camera to
manipulate and download images. If you are already using
other Photo programs on your computer to manipulate images,
they will also work with the CaptureView Camera.
These cameras have a Movie Mode. How long can
the movies be?
A: The movies are taken in Windows AVI Format and
can be up to 90 seconds @QVGA (320 X 240 pixels). Use
this mode to capture not just a moment, but the mood and
feeling of an event.
What is an SD card?
A: An SD card is a Secure Digital Memory Card.
This card will allow you to expand the amount of memory
on the CaptureView camera. These cards are available in
various sizes and can be purchased from any computer retailer.
The CaptureView 8x30 will also work with Multi-Media Cards
Can I use the CaptureView 8x30 Camera on a Macintosh
A: If using a SD card you can download
the images onto a Macintosh computer by using a flash
card reader. You can also download your images to a Unix
system. When using a flash card reader, the flash card
looks like a Hard drive to your computer. Note: You cannot
load to a Mac or Unix system using the camera's USB port
- the USB port only can download to a Windows operating
How do I focus the Camera?
A: The Camera has a variable focus. There are
two settings: one for "near" objects (30 feet
to 66 feet) and one for "far" objects (66 feet
to infinity). Change the setting by rotating the ring
on the central Camera lens. Choose the icon of the "person"
for near objects and the icon of the "mountain"
for far objects. When looking through the binoculars you
will need to focus them for your eyes, but the camera
will always be in focus when you take a picture.
What is the Flashback Feature?
A: The FlashBack feature records a movie for a
user-selected period of time (5, 10, 15 or 20 seconds).
You can record for as long as you like, but you will only
save a recording for the period of time you have selected.
For example, if you chose 10 seconds, only the last ten
seconds of the recording will remain in memory and be
saved--the rest of the recording is discarded.
An example of using the FlashBack feature would be to
record a baseball pitcher throwing a pitch. Select 10
seconds from the FlashBack Period submenu. Press the shutter
button to begin recording while the pitcher prepares.
After the pitcher throws the ball, click on the shutter
button again to turn off recording. You'll have saved
only the last ten seconds of the pitcher's activity.
My computer doesn't see the camera. What do I
A: Look for the CaptureView Binocular Camera in
Windows Explorer. The Camera should be listed as "Removable
Disk" or "Binocular". You can browse the
camera's memory as if it were a hard drive. You may now
copy images or files from the camera's memory to your
PC just as you would with any external hard drive or flash
If the CaptureView Binocular Camera is not visible in
Windows Explorer, try changing USB ports. Make sure to
use a USB port directly on the computer, not a shared
port or USB hub.
