The first step is to charge the camera with the USB charging cable. The camera will only charge when it is turned off, and the end of charging will be signalled when the self-timer light on the camera switches off.

Now you can insert your film by opening the film door with the slider. A yellow mark helps you to insert the film on the correct side. The film cover is then automatically pushed out when the film door is closed. Please note that you insert the film while the camera is switched on, otherwise it will not push out the cover by itself. The dots on the camera's screen will show you how many images of your film you have left.

The camera turns on and off by pressing the on/off button on top of the camera. To turn it on, press and hold the button a little longer. The shutter release button is located in front of the camera, you can even focus by pressing it lightly. Now you can shoot pictures and select the best picture for printing afterwards. Use the select button to choose between different functions such as filters, frames, flash and self-timer.

You can also use the menu button to make exposure corrections and turn the automatic focus on and off.

The camera has both an internal memory and a micro SD card on which the images are stored. If there are malfunctions and connection problems with the app, this may be due to full memory.
