    „Setting the Smart Shade Control
    The smart shade control function differs from backlight 
    compensation in that only dark areas are brightened while 
    bright areas are kept intact. 
    (1) [Smart Shade Control]
    Select [Auto], [Manual], or [Disable].
    (2) Adjusting the Smart Shade Control
    When smart shade control is [Manual], set one of the 7 
    levels from [1] (Mild) to [7] (Strong).
    Example: If the background is bright and the subject 
    is hard to see, this function brightens dark areas to 
    make the subject clearer. 
    In comparison to backlight compensation, smart 
    shade control can reduce overexposure of bright 
     When [Auto] or [Manual] is selected for smart shade control, 
    the video data size increases. 
     When [Manual] is selected for smart shade control, setting a 
    high compensation strength may increase screen noise. If 
    noise is noticeable, lower the control level.
    „Setting the Haze Compensation
    If the subject is obscured by haze, this adjusts contrast in 
    the video to improve subject visibility.(1) [Haze Compensation]
    Automatically uses Compensation Removal.
    Use buttons in (2) to manually set the compensation 
    Disables Haze Compensation.
    (2) Haze Compensation Strength
    When Haze Compensation is [Manual], set one of the 
    7 levels from [1] (Mild) to [7] (Strong).
     When [Auto] or [Manual] is selected for [Haze Compensation], 
    the video data size increases.
     When using [Haze Compensation], contrast may be strong if 
    the subject is not obscured by haze. If this happens, set [Haze 
    Compensation] to [Manual] and set a lower Haze 
    Compensation strength.
    „Setting the Focus
    [Auto]  : Automatically focuses on the 
    [Manual] : You can adjust the focus manually 
    by pushing the  (far) and 
    (near) buttons. 
    Clicking [One-shot AF] will use 
    autofocus to focus on a subject and 
    then stop in manual focus.
    [Fixed at Infinity] : You can set the focus so that it is 
    fixed near infinity. 
     [Auto] cannot be selected for [Smart Shade Control] if 
    [Exposure] is set to [Manual].
     If you set [Haze Compensation] to [Auto] or [Manual], [Smart 
    Shade Control] is set to [Disable].

    „Setting the Exposure
    (1) Exposure Mode
    Select from [Auto], [Manual], [Auto (Flickerless)], 
    [Auto (Flickerless 2)] or [Auto (Shutter-priority AE)]. 
    If [Auto] is selected for [Day/Night] under [Camera] in 
    the Setting page (p. 48), select [Auto ], [Auto 
    (Flickerless)], [Auto (Flickerless 2)] or [Auto (Shutter-
    priority AE)]. 
    The exposure is controlled automatically.
    The exposure is set by adjusting the shutter speed 
    and gain values manually.
    [Auto (Flickerless)]
    In this mode, video flickering caused by fluorescent 
    lights, etc., can be reduced. The shutter speed is 
    automatically adjusted according to the brightness 
    of the environment in which the camera is used.
    [Auto (Flickerless 2)]
    Use this mode if flickering is not reduced when 
    [Auto (Flickerless)] is selected. However, the automatic adjustment range for the shutter speed is 
    suppressed so as not to exceed 1/100 sec. in this 
    mode, resulting in improper exposure 
    (i.e., excessive brightness) in some cases.
    [Auto (Shutter-priority AE)]
    In this mode, the desired shutter speed can be 
    (2) [Exposure Compensation]
    When [Auto], [Auto (Flickerless)], [Auto (Flickerless 2)] 
    or [Auto (Shutter-priority AE)] is selected for 
    [Exposure], the exposure compensation value desired 
    can be selected from nine levels (-4 to +4) using the 
    To darken the video, select a negative value. To 
    brighten the video, select a positive value. 
    (3) [Metering Mode]
    When [Auto], [Auto (Flickerless)], [Auto (Flickerless 2)] 
    or [Auto (Shutter-priority AE)] is selected for 
    [Exposure], the metering mode can be selected from 
    [Center-Weighted], [Average] or [Spot]. 
    For an explanation on each item set in [Metering 
    Mode], see [Metering Mode] in the Setting page 
    (p. 46).
    (4) [Shutter Speed] 
    When [Manual] or [Auto (Shutter-priority AE)] is 
    selected for [Exposure], select the shutter speed 
    desired. If [Manual] is selected, set the shutter speed 
    in the range of [1/1 sec] to [1/16000 sec] from a pull-
    down menu. If [Auto (Shutter-priority AE)] is selected, 
    set the shutter speed in the range of [1/2 sec] to [1/
    16000 sec] from a pull-down menu.
    When capturing a moving subject, selecting a higher 
    shutter speed can reduce blurry video capture.
    (5) [Slow Shutter]
    You can set slow shutter if [Exposure] is set to [Auto], 
    [Auto (Flickerless)] or [Auto (Flickerless 2)]. Select a 
    value in the range of [1/2 sec] to [1/30 sec] from the 
    pull-down menu.
    As slower shutter speeds generate afterimages when 
    capturing a moving subject, select an appropriate 
    time according to the capture conditions. 
    (6) [Gain] 
    If [Manual] is selected for [Exposure], set a desired 
    gain value. 
    Moving the slider to the left decreases the gain 
    (sensitivity to brightness) and darkens the video. 
    Moving the slider to the right increases the gain and 
    brightens the video.
     If it is set in the Admin Viewer, the same focus mode will 
    occur in the viewers of other users also. 
     Setting the shutter speed at [1/1 sec] in manual exposure 
    (p. 143) will disable the [Auto] and [One-shot AF] focus 
    modes in Control for Admin. Switch the focus to [Manual] and 
    adjust it to your subject. 
     Please refer to the notes on p. 48 for subjects that are difficult 
    to focus on, focus ranges and other information.
     Changes to focus mode in the Admin Viewer will not be 
    reflected in the settings on the setting page. 
     Note that if you set the focus manually it will remain fixed.
     If the subject is a traffic signal or electronic scoreboard, etc., 
    the captured 
    video may flicker. 
    In this case, try changing [Exposure] to [Auto (Shutter-priority 
    AE)] and then select a shutter speed lower than 1/100, to see 
    if the situation improves.  
    „Setting White Balance
    (1) [Auto] 
    The white balance is adjusted automatically. 
    (2) [Light Source] 
    Select the light source from the pull-down menu below 
    according to the condition in which the camera is 
    For an explanation on each item set in [Light Source], 
    see [White Balance] in the Setting page (p. 47).
    (3) [Manual] 
    The white balance is adjusted manually.
    [One-shot WB]
    This is used for forcibly locking the white balance to 
    match the light source.
    Example of setting method:
    Illuminate a white subject (white paper, etc.) using 
    the light source, making sure the subject fills the 
    entire screen, and then execute [One-shot WB].
    [R Gain], [B Gain]
    When setting the white balance manually, set the 
    values of red and blue gain in the range 0 to 1023 to 
    match the light source.„Setting the Day/Night Mode
    (1) [Auto]
    The camera automatically switches to day mode or 
    night mode depending on ambient brightness.
    (2) [Day Mode] 
    Color video can be viewed in the normal mode. 
    (3) [Night Mode] 
    Video is shown in black and white.
    Though the camera has an infrared filter, there is no effect on 
    lighting due to infrared light as the camera does not have an 
    insertion/removal mechanism for the filter.
     [Exposure Compensation] and [Manual] for [Exposure] 
    cannot be selected if [Smart Shade Control] is set to [Auto].
     Even if  [Exposure] is set to [Auto (Flickerless)] or [Auto 
    (Flickerless 2)], some screen flicker may still occur under 
    unstable light source conditions. 
     When [Camera] > [Camera Control] > [AGC Limit] is set to 
    [OFF]  in the setting page and [Exposure] is set to [Auto 
    (Shutter-priority AE)], exposure compensation and backlight 
    compensation will not be performed.
     Since the light source selection options are based on 
    representative characteristics, proper colors may not be 
    achieved depending on the applicable light source. In this 
    case, use the [One-shot WB] function.
     If the subject looks greenish under mercury lamps in the 
    [Auto] mode, select the [Mercury Lamp] mode under light 
    source. If the video is still not shown in appropriate colors 
    under mercury lamps when the [Mercury Lamp] mode is 
    selected under light source, use [One-shot WB].
     When the subject has only one color, illumination is low, or 
    when sodium lamps, mercury lamps and certain other 
    fluorescent lighting are used, colors may not be adjusted 
     When [Day/Night] is set to [Night Mode] (including when it is 
    set to [Auto] and night mode is judged to be applicable), the 
    white balance function cannot be used.
     Notes on capturing video continuously day and night
    If a subject that seldom changes is captured in a location 
    where the light source changes gradually, such as when 
    capturing a subject continuously day and night, appropriate 
    colors may not be achieved. 
    In the above case, applying changes to the video to capture 
    will achieve the appropriate colors.
    If the viewer is exited in [Day Mode] or [Night Mode], auto day/
    night stays disabled even if [Auto] is set in the setting page. To 
    set auto day/night to enable, be sure to exit the viewer after 
    setting [Auto].
