How to print photographs directly from a digital camera

Connecting a PictBridge compliant device such as a digital camera, digital video camera or camera-equipped mobile phone (hereafter, they are collectively called a camera.) to the machine allows you to print recorded images directly without using a computer.
You will find the following logo on your camera or its manual if it is compliant with PictBridge.

< How to connect a camera >
1. Ensuring that the machine is powered on, pull down the paper output tray.
2. Load paper in the rear tray.
3. Ensure that the camera is turned off.
4. Connect the camera to the machine using the USB cable (for connection to a computer) supplied with the camera.
