D ynamic P hoto For a wealth of informatio n about Dynamic Photo incl uding explanations abou t how to use Dynamic Photo images , the Dynamic Studio image conversion service, sa mple images, and more, visit the special Dynamic Photo website at: This manual provides an introduction to Dy namic Photo, which creates a whole new way to enjoy digital imaging.
2 Dynamic Photo! A totally new way to enjoy digital photography! Dynamic Photo! A totally new way to enjoy digital photography! Dynamic Photo makes it easy to crop a movi ng subject out of a series of images and insert it into other images! A simple operation on the camer a extracts a moving subject automatically by cropping up to 20 Continuous Shutter images.
3 Using the Dynamic Photo Extracted Sample Subjects Using the Dynamic Photo Extracted Sampl e Subjects Your digital camera comes with a number of extracted sample subjects in its built-in memory. You can use these sample subjec ts to practice creating Dynamic Photo images by inserting them into your original snapshots.
4 Using the Dynamic Photo Extracted Sample Subjects 6. After creation of the Dynamic Photo image is complete , the finished image with the inserted moving su bjec t will appe ar on the monitor screen. After you master the above procedure using extracted sample subjects, you will be ready to create your own extracted subj ects and insert them into snapshots for totally original Dynamic Photo images.
5 Creating a Dynamic Photo Image Creating a Dynamic Photo Image Dynamic Photo images are created by extr acting the subject out of one image, and inserting it into another image. The term “subject” as used here refers to what you extract or crop out of the first image.
6 Creating a Dynamic Photo Image 3. First, shoot the subject. Best results can be obtained with the camera secured on a tripod. With the camera pointed at the moving subject, press the shutter button to record. If you selected “Moving Subject”, the camera will record a series of Continuous Shutter (CS) images over a few seconds.
7 Creating a Dynamic Photo Image The camera compares the images you shot in steps 3 and 4 and extracts the subject. The extracted subject image will appear on the monitor screen. If you selected “Moving Subject”, the 20 subject images that were recorde d will scroll on the screen, creating the illusion of movement.
8 Creating a Dynamic Photo Image 4. Use [ 4 ] and [ 6 ] to select the subject you want to insert and then press [SET]. * Only subjects that can be inserted into other images will appear at this ti me. 5. Use the zoom controller to adj ust the size of the subject an d use [ 8 ], [ 2 ], [ 4 ], and [ 6 ] to adjust its position.
9 Creating a Dynamic Photo Image Four Tips for Good Subject Cropping • When shooting the subject image , shoot against a white wall or some other surface whose color is different from that of the subject. The camera will not be able to crop the subject image proper ly if its color is the same as or similar to the background color.
10 Creating a Dynamic Photo Image Move the subjec t away from the wall to avoid shadows ! The camera may mistake shadows on the wall or floor caused by strong sunlight, illumi nation , or other light sources as part of the subject. Shadows tend to form when the subject is too close to a wall.
11 Creating a Dynamic Photo Image Normally you need to shoot the subject you want to extr act against a background and then shoot the background again witho ut the subject. When the subject is against a plain background, however, you can extrac t the subje ct after shooting only once.
12 Creating a Dynamic Photo Image You can use the Dynamic Photo image you created in Step 2 in a variety of fun ways. Step 3: Have fun with Dynamic Phot o. On the cam era On a TV Dynamic Photo images play back automatically as soon as you display them on the EXILIM monitor screen.
13 Creating a Dynamic Photo Image On a PC Enjoy watching Dynamic Photo images on your PC screen. In a digital phot o frame Play Dynamic Photo images in a digital photo frame. On a cell phone View Dynamic Photo images on your cell phone screen.
