● Shooting Modes Mode Intended use Explanations Standard Mode For standard intraoral photography Basic mode for dentistry Surgery Mode For intraoral photography from a distance You can take photos from a farther place than standard mode. This mode is optimal for surgery, when you do not wish to put the camera close to the subject. Mirror Mode For intraoral photography using a mirror The image taken can be reversed. Face Mode For shooting facial views or half- body portrait Hold the camera vertically as indicated by “ UP” mark. (*Auto-cropping is not avail- able in this mode.) Low-glare Mode For taking details of anterior teeth, working models and indirect restorations The outside flash illuminates obliquely to reduce the glare on the teeth. With intense flash lights, inner shade of the teeth can be emphasized. Whitening Mode Optimal for shade comparison be- tween before and after whitening Similar conditions with Low-glare mode but with lower light intensity, which reduces glare and emphasizes the surface texture and shade of the teeth. Tele-macro Mode For taking anterior teeth, indirect restorations and working models The outside flash enables photography with a higher magnification rate. Close-up lens must be placed. Isolate shade Mode Optimal for shade taking Two images are automatically created in this mode; an image taken in low-glare mode + another image in which the tooth color is natural while deemphasizing the back- ground, in order to minimize the deception of visual shade evaluation. Isolate shade mode The camera might fail to differentiate between the teeth and surrounding structure in the cases where the teeth or gingiva are severely stained or discolored. Note 21 2

44 Tips to avoid image blurringDesk For intraoral photography For photographing models When taking magnified image of natural teeth with Low-glare mode or Tele-macro mode, even slight agitation of the camera affects the composition of the image. Use your left hand to fix the camera and subject as illustrated above. Tips for operations Cause of inappropriate focus and countermeasures ● Cause 1 Contrast is insufficient for the area to be focused. Countermeasure⇒Focus on the area with high contrast. Explanation Auto-focus of EyeSpecial C-III is based on the contrast of the subject. Thus, when the sub- ject is in a single color completely, has low contrast, or it’s placed in very dark place, it might not focus properly. When taking intraoral photography, high contrast area such as interdental area or cervical area should be included in the AF area. ● Cause 2 Camera was moved after focusing. Countermeasure⇒Hold the camera firmly. Explanation The camera or the subject was moved after focusing. Hold the camera firmly while stabilizing the upper half of the body. Focusing the area outside of the AF frame. Specific area can be focused by using Spot AF. 1 Hold the camera toward the subject and touch the area you wish to focus. Spot AF area You can move the focus area within the Spot AF area. 2 Half-press the Shutter to focus. Then, after focusing press the Shutter button completely to take a picture. 45 4 46 Take pictures with Focus lock When focusing on the area outside of Spot AF area, you can select “Focus lock” as indicated with the red frame in the photo.
