Problems 1: can't reset the clock (should be on p.m, not a.m.--can't cancel out)

2: how is internal memory recharged? Don't have memory stick yet. Does inserting that recharge internal memory?

3: I hate the "hood"--cumbersome and clumsy--Sony says use it for outdoors; Steve says it's Low light -assistant lamp". Is it just for lens additions? WHich one? I'm confused. Do I have to use it? Pros and cons?

4. I tried to change EV with histogram showing on auto--I didn't see any change in histogram??????

5. Is the Sony disc software necessary for WinXP Home to transfer pics? If I get the AC Power Adaptor is that all that's necessary for transfer?

6. Suggestions for a good digital book?

7. Why a "folder" for pics? How is this set up?

8. Directions for printing say to 'open camera and computer, insert media card.... If it's already in there, take it out and THEN put it back in?

(Pardon dumb questions--but the instruction booklet leaves lots unsaid..)

THANKS EVER SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Go the the clock set menu and advance the clock until it clicks over to AM or PM as you desire.

1. Sarah got you there.

2. The memory doesn't "recharge". You have to delete the pics you have in the memory in order to free up more space.

3. You are talking about 2 different things. Use the hood outdoors to cut down on glare for the H2's large lens. Remove it for non-daylight shots.

4. Don't know, sorry.

5.You still need to connect the camera to the computer. Even without installing the software, WinXP should recognize the camera and allow you to download photos to your PC. The AC adapter has nothing to do with this.

6. I really need to get one myself!

7. Not really sure what you mean there... files, pictures or otherwise, usually eside in folders. Helps keep things organized.

8. ???

Thanks a lot, Chris-

Well I managed to answer the clock question. Let's move forward. After reading the multiple questions. In all honesty, a good read of the camera documentation would pretty much answer all the questions except one, about a good book on digital photography.

May I recommend a book called, "Digital Cameras Made Really Easy."

Thanks so much everyone! Will look into that book, MtClimber, and I've already checked out that H1 site Sintares, and it is WONDERFUL!!!!!

I managed to get 9 pics printed. Sony says that transfering pics to computer empties the internal memory. Nope! I'm checking on how to do that........L2
