  • The image on my Compact 7 HD isn’t clear

    For an optimal quality image, it is recommended to ensure that the camera lens and object light mirror are kept clean. A dirty lens will result in a fuzzy image and may cause the autofocus camera to incorrectly focus. A clean object light mirror is important for preventing dark or light spots and for ensuring an evenly lit image. To clean the camera lens and mirror, use the provided cleaning cloth or another soft lens cleaning cloth. Note: Do not use water or cleaning agents to clean the lens and mirror.
