CAMERA CARE + SAFETY
I. Equipment Storage Cameras are numbered and stored in the numbered pockets in the equipment closet Lenses are numbered and stored in the numbered pockets on the closet door Lenses Cameras Notice the straps go in the pockets
I. Equipment Storage Batteries are numbered to the specific camera they belong with and they are stored on their specific numbered chargers in the bin in the equipment closet Camera bodies and lenses have numbered caps to keep dirt and dust out. All the numbered parts remain together! When not using caps, store back in the storage pockets, not on desks! Caps & Numbering Batteries
I. Equipment Storage Tripods are always stored on the wood cabinet in the equipment closet Tripods
I. Equipment Storage Walkie Talkies are always stored on their chargers plastic basket above the white cabinet in the equipment closet 2-Way Radios
II. Equipment Sign Out An equipment order form must be completed with your name in order to sign out equipment. This says that you are responsible for the equipment you are signing out. Equipment restrictions and replacement costs are possible if the equipment is misused in your care
III. Handling the Cameras Four Basic Rules: 1. Do not drop camera or subject it to any physical shock 2. Cameras and lenses are not waterproof and should not be used in the rain or around liquids 3. Never touch the mirror in the camera body or the glass on the either side of the lenses 4. Use a soft cloth, not your finger, to remove dust and fingerprints from the mirror & lenses
III. Handling the Cameras Always place camera body cap and lens caps on when not in use Never store lenses on their side (they can roll)
SD Card goes into side of camera with label facing the back of the camera III. Handling the Cameras You must bring your own SD Card. If you forget, you can borrow one (if available) in exchange for your student ID.
CF Card (Compact Flash) III. Handling the Cameras A limited number of our older cameras take CF Cards. You don’t have to bring one of these in. You can borrow these if you get an older camera that only takes a CF Card. I must insert and eject the CF Card in and out of the camera for you. There are small pins that can bend and make the camera inoperable!!!
III. Handling the Cameras 1. Take correct numbered battery off charger 2. Open door at bottom of camera 3. Insert Battery in SLOWLY 4. Do not JAM the battery in! If it doesn’t slide right in, you are putting it in the wrong way, or you have the wrong battery (we have four different kinds of batteries)! 1. Take correct numbered battery off charger 2.

To Attach the Lens to the Camera: 1. Align White Boxes or Red Dots 2. Twist Counter Clockwise until you hear a click To Remove the Lens from the Camera: 1. Press and hold release button next to lens, and twist clockwise III. Handling the Cameras Lens Release
IV. Returning Equipment When done using the camera: 1.Remove SD Card (or CF) and place at your desk 2.Remove the battery and place on the charger with that number 3.Put numbered body cap back on the camera body and place back in numbered pocket with strap in pocket 4.Put numbered lens caps on lens and place back in numbered pocket
V. Saving Photos 1.If you are following the rules and have your own SD card, you can leave your photos on there until you are ready to create your project, them upload them on to the computer. If you borrowed an SD card, then you need to download the pictures from the camera to the computer as soon as you finish taking pictures, because there is no guarantee those photos will be on that card tomorrow! 2.If your camera holds a CF card, take the camera to Mr. Cappotelli to remove the card and give it to you with a USB adapter. Plug the CF card into the USB adapter, then plug the USB adapter into the USB port on the back of the computer. 3.If your camera holds an SD card, insert the SD card into the built-in SD card read on the computer (either on the side under the CD drive, or on the back). Look! And be careful not to put your SD card in the CD drive slot. 4.Log in to the computer under Raider Media Net user setting. 5.Open finder 6.Look on your left under “devices.” 7.Look for the SD card device and click on it. Sometimes it’s called “no name.” 8.Look for the folder called “DCIM,” and open it. 9.Search through the folder and photos to find your pictures. Highlight your photos by dragging a box around them. 10.Open the Raider Media Net alias drive and find our folder within our class folder. Create a subfolder that is named specific to the project you’re working on. 11.Drag and drop your photos from the card folder into your alias folder. 12.Once the photos have copied to the alias completely, eject your SD card. 13.If you have a CF card, return it, along with the adapter to Mr. Cappotelli.
