Charge the camera
The OneStep 2 will not be fully charged upon purchase — it should be fully charged before first use. To charge the camera, plug the USB charging cable into the Micro-USB slot on the camera’s back panel, and the other end of the cable into a charger, such as a smartphone adapter or your computer’s USB slot. The red flash charge LED will turn off when the battery is fully charged. A full charge usually takes about 2 hours through a wall socket with a smartphone adapter, or up to 4 hours through a computer’s USB slot. A fully-charged OneStep 2 camera will have enough power to shoot 15-20 packs of film, depending on usage. Remember to turn your camera off after every use to conserve battery life.
How much battery you have left
The camera has 3 battery states, indicated by the camera’s flash charge LED light:
1. Battery charged: Enough charge for at least 2 packs of film. The flash LED will blink green whilst charging between shots, and will be solid green when ready to shoot.
2. Battery low: Enough charge for about 1 pack of film. The flash LED will blink orange whilst charging between shots, and will be solid orange when ready to shoot.
3. Battery empty: No charge remaining. The flash LED will blink red, and the camera will cease to operate until it is recharged. A fully-charged OneStep 2 camera will have enough power to shoot 15-20 packs of film, depending on usage.
Checking battery status
To check the camera’s charge at any time, switch the camera off, then switch it back on whilst holding down the self-timer button. The 8 film counter LEDs on top of the camera will light up, indicating how much battery remains. For example: If 6 LEDs light up, that means the camera has 6/8 (75%) charge remaining. Once you release the self-timer button, the LEDs will return to displaying the number of shots remaining in your film pack.
Charge the OneStep 2 before use to ensure it has enough power for the duration of your shoot. The flash charge LED will be solid red whilst the camera is plugged in and charging, and will turn off once the camera is fully charged.
