Olympus D-150/C-1 Introduction Manual (en, fr, de, es)

Shooting Using the Monitor 
Operating Procedure
Check that the lens barrier is open.
Press the
monitor button.
 The monitor turns on.
Determine the image composition by observing
your subject in the monitor.
Half-press the shutter button to focus on the subject,
and then press it all the way to take the picture.
(This operation is identical to the Shooting Using
the Viewfinder).
 The orange lamp on the right of the viewfinder blinks for a
moment while the image is being written to the card, and
then goes out.
Deciding Whether to Use the Viewfinder or
Monitor According to Working Distance
Monitor button
Snapshot, landscape, etc. (approx. 1.5 m/4.9 ft. to infinity)
Hold the camera securely, keeping your upper arms
pressed close to your body, to prevent camera shake.
Use the
Close-up of a person (approx. 0.5 m to 1.5 m/1.6 ft. to 4.9 ft.)
Close-up images can usually be shot using the
viewfinder, but using the monitor may be
advantageous in certain cases.
Use either the 
viewfinder or
Very short distance (0.2 m to 0.5 m/8 in. to 1.6 ft.)
When the subject is closer than 0.5 m/1.6 ft., use the Macro
mode. Shooting without using the Macro mode is also
possible, but correct focus may not be possible.
The image area shown in the viewfinder is slightly different
from the image area that is actually recorded. When shooting
a close-up, confirm the image on the monitor.
Use the
(Macro mode)
