Very comprehensive document which is a must-have for any Satellit 2100 owner whose set up is somewhat intricate. Due to the bad quality of the pictures that are rather dark and a bit blurred I gave 4-star feedback.
The manual was missing 2 pages but when I presented the problem to the company they made every attempt to get the 2 pages to me, when they couldn't they refunded my money. A very pleasing and easy transaction. The manual they provided was the original, it was concise and to the point. I plan to do business with this company again when should the need arise.
Irrespectively of this manual exist only germany language, it's useful - although i need some additional task to translate: My english is bad, but usable - but i really dont speak germany. :)

BASIC IMAGE RECORDING â¢ When recording a dimly lit subject while âAutoâ is selected for the ISO sensitivity setting (page 117), the camera increases sensitivity and uses a faster shutter speed. Because of this, you need to guard against camera movement if you have flash turned off (page 60). â¢ Bright light shining on the lens can cause images to appear âwashed outâ. This tends to happen when recording images outdoors in bright sunlight. To protect against this, use your free hand to shade the lens from the light.
I About Auto Focus
â¢ Proper focus may be difficult or even impossible when shooting the following types of subjects. â Solid color walls or subjects with little contrast â Strongly backlit subjects â Very shiny objects â Venetian blinds or other horizontally repeating patterns â Multiple subjects that are varying distances from the camera â Subjects in poorly lit areas â Moving subjects â Subjects outside the shooting range of the camera â¢ Proper focus may also be difficult or impossible if the camera is moving. â¢ Note that a green operation lamp and focus frame do not necessarily guarantee that the resulting image will be in focus. â¢ If Auto Focus does not produce the results you want for some reason, try using focus lock (page 78) or manual focus (page 77).
