Program AE mode with the histogram feature enabled. The
aperture is F2.8, shutter speed is 1/8 of a second and the "0.0" indicates
that there is no exposure compensation. The "[ ]" in the
center shows the autofocus area. Image quality is set at SHQ and the memory
card has sufficient space for another 89 pictures.
You can select from 640 x 480 (VGA) or 320 x 240 (QVGA) resolution and either
the standard 15 frames per second framerate or the very high quality 30 frames
per second framerate. The SHQ mode is awesome but it
consumes your memory space at the rate of about 2MB per second and is limited to
20 seconds per clip. The HQ, SQ1 and SQ2 quality movies can be recorded until the
card is full.
