First Look Cont.

We find the majority of the controls at the back of the camera. From the top left, we have the Still Photo Button, Zoom Button and Movie Mode Button. Below this is the Select Button with a movable joystick for making selections in menus, Record / Playback Switch and the Menu Button. Directly below these buttons is the Battery Compartment / SD Memory Card Slot. The CG6 has 19 MB of internal memory, but you will no doubt want to use an SD card to expand your storage capabilities. The CG6 accepts cards up to 4 GB in size.

The bottom of the camera has a USB 2.0 mini-port and a tripod mounting hole. The only issue here is that, when using a tripod, the mounting bracket will more than likely block access to the USB port, so you would need to remove it each time you wanted to connect the camera to your computer.

Here we see the camera mounted on a tripod bracket (I did this so I could photograph the camera more easily with the LCD screen open). As you can see, the screen is a nice size compared to the overall footprint of the camera. In the last photograph, you can see the On/Off button, which is "hidden" under the LCD screen when it is closed.

Continue ahead as we turn the camera on and check out some of the menu options available...
