Good question. From reading the manual, it doesn't appear that it can read PDF - it didn't even recognize the JPG files I put on the SD card.

It is actually not an expensive camera - less than $400 - just has a lot of features, as is common with electronic stuff these days.

Doesn't sound right. Could your computer read the jpgs as jpgs off that card? Maybe they didn't get converted to jpgs as you expected?

Maybe try a few jpgs that you know are readable, rather than converted - maybe that SW did something funky?

My computer could read the jpgs from the SD card. I'm sure someone more knowledgeable can explain why the camera can't read the JPG images. Plus, having the word COPY slapped on every page was a drag.

In any case, I have my manual in my camera now and it is totally readable, so I'm good to go. I need to figure out this camera's capabilities. I never thought I'd see 35X optical zoom in a point and shoot.
