|So at last you have a great image you want to print!
The SEM has three ways to take a good quality picture:
Obtaining a Video Print
To make a video print, an image is stored on the left TV monitor. By pressing the Print button on the photographic panel ...
|... a video print will be recorded onto the thermal paper in the Sony black-and-white video printer which is built into the SEM.|
Obtaining a Photograph
To make a photograph, the SEM uses a Polaroid camera which uses special film. By pressing the Photo button on the panel ...
|... an image will be recorded onto the photographic film in the Polaroid camera. The film is special in that it develops and fixes the image in about 1 minute. One peels the paper backing away and a finished photograph of the image appears.|
Storing a Digital Image
A floppy disk is inserted into the floppy disk drive located to the right of the right monitor. Under the slowest scan speed only one digital image can be stored per floppy disk because the image is so big! The user then clicks on the function called ALBUM which allows for storage onto the floppy disk.
