Horizontal

Planes

Mode for horizontal planes such as tables, the ground, and ceilings.

Basic use instructions

  • Select "Horiz" (Horizontal Plane) at the upper right of the screen.

Convenient functions

  • "Tilt Correction"

If you set “Tilt:” at the upper right of the screen to “Tilt: Correct”, tilt will be detected and eliminated from the image.

  • Size designation

If a size has been decided, and size is designated with the "Size" icon, the screen will assume the aspect ratio of that size.

  • "4-Side Tilt Correction"

If "4-Side Tilt Corr.” is turned ON at the next screen, tilt correction is performed for each of the 4 edges.

  • Color correction modes

The color correction modes are: Original, Lighten, and Document. If you set to Document when shooting documents, the background will be white for a cleaner image.

  • "Edge Detection"

Edges can be detected. The detected edges are corrected to be a rectangle. Edge detection is designated at the "Trimming" screen.

(Automatic mode)

  • Set “Orient:” (Orientation) at the upper right of the screen to "Orient: Auto".
