General Info

  • the camera will attempt to autoboot (SD card lock method) when :
    • the microSD card cover is left open AND
    • the microSD card has "BOOTDISK" at the appropriate place in the boot sector for the card format (FAT16 vs FAT32) AND
    • a valid DISKBOOT.BIN file is located in the root of the microSD card file structure.
  • the camera will start when USB power is applied to the USB port,  in addition to the normal power switch or playback switch startup.
  • when started via the playback button,  the camera will not switch to shooting mode when the shutter button (ring?) is pressed.  Shooting mode can be entered by a second press of the playback button.
