Start taking movies and pictures on the move with your PSP.
To use the Camera, your PSP will need to be running system software 3.00 or above. You can see what version of system software is running on your PSP by going to Settings and selecting [System Settings]. Then, select [System Information] to view the current version installed. If necessary you can update your system software wirelessly via the Network or with a PC connected to the Internet.
Easy to install, the Camera inserts into the USB connector on top of the PSP system; turning the dial will lock it firmly in place.
To use the Camera's macro feature, ideal for subjects 6-7cms away from the lens, turn the selector - the dial surrounding the lens - to Macro mode. The lens itself can be rotated 180 degrees by turning the portion that holds the lens up or down.
Audio recording is supported with an inbuilt mic. To ensure continued, proper recording do not allow dust or grime to block the microphone.
To get the most out of the Camera, a good sized Memory Stick Duo will let you push up the resolution and quality of your images and movies to the max. Capacity varies but on a 4GB Memory Stick you can easily capture over two hours of video or 40,000 photos at the standard settings.
Basic Camera Functions
To use the Camera navigate to Photo and select [Camera]. This puts the PSP system and Camera into Photo Mode; the recording indicator next to the lens of the Camera will now be either lit or blinking.
To change between Photo Mode and Movie Mode press the SELECT button. To take a picture or start recording a movie clip, press the R button, while in Movie Mode press the R button again to stop recording. By pressing the L button you can review your work.
Pressing Triangle lets you access additional features and settings.
