Step 1: Turning It On
Open the side flap so its facing you. Then, press and hold the power button. You should see a screen as shown.
Step 2: Open Lens Cap
Flip the switch located on the side near the lens to the position shown. Lens Cap is shown in closed position.
Step 3: Switching Mode
You may not be in recording mode right away. In that case, press the round mode button on top to switch from playback mode to recording mode
Step 4: Recording
To record, you may press either of these two buttons. I will test tonight and see how long it will record for, so you should be good for at least an hour and a half
Step 5: Getting Fancy
To zoom in or out, you may press either of the buttons shown.
Step 6: Putting It Away
Do the same steps as you did earlier, in reverse order. Close the lens cap, flip the screen in, and press and hold the power button.
Step 7: Charge It
Once the side flap is opened, there will be another flap. Open this flap. Plug the cord into the red jack.
