Calibration Procedure
Auto calibration (OB, AGC/WB, Meshu 26, Meshut 80) & Infinite Focus Calibration
1. Insert battery and press “Playback + Tele +Set/OK ” key to enter test mode.
2. The LCD will display “OB CLBT”. Place camera in front of light source box and make sure the camera is close to light source box or can shoot at black objects.
3. Press “OK” key to run auto test. When LCD shows “OK” , it has passed the test. If it shows “NG”, it has failed.
4. Press the “Playback” key to return to main menu and select AGC/WB.
5. The LCD will display “AGC/WB”. Place the camera in front of the light source box and set it to LV10.
6. Press “OK” key to run auto test.
7. When LCD displays “OK” , it has passed the test. If shows “NG”, it has not passed.
8. When LCD displays “Meshut 26”, place camera in front of light source box and set it to LV12.
9. Press “OK” key to start auto test.
10. When LCD displays “OK”, it has passed the test, if it displays “NG”, if has failed the test.
11. When LCD displays “Meshut 80”, place camera in front of light source box and set it to LV14.
12. Press “OK” key to start auto test.
13. When LCD displays “OK”, it has passed the test, if it displays “NG”, it has failed the test.
14. When the LCD displays “Focus”, it requires Collimator for calibration. Place the camera in front of collimator.
15. Press “OK” key to start auto test.
16. When LCD displays “OK”, it has passed the test, if it displays “NG”, it has failed the test.
Flash WB calibration
1. Place camera on the fixture.
2. Press “Playback + Set (OK) + Tele” key to enter engineering mode.
3. When LCD will display “Flash WB”. Shoot subject in low brightness environment.
4. When LCD display “OK”, it has passed the test, if it displays “NG”, it has failed the test.
USB mode setting
1. Press “Playback + Set (OK) + Tele” key.
