Record Modes & Screens




Olympus Stylus Digital 1000

Rotating the Mode dial to the GUIDE position will bring up the built-in Shooting Guide on the LCD screen. There are 13 selections to choose from.

Here you can see the Program exposure mode, in the center are the auto focus target marks, and across the bottom is image quality, SHQ = Super High Quality (10-megapixels) and there's enough space on our xD card for 100 pictures. The "shaky hand symbol" indicates that Digital Image Stabilization is On. It uses Olympus' Bright Capture technology, which boosts the ISO sensitivity. This keeps shutter speeds higher in order to reduce the blurring effects of camera shake or subject movement during the exposure.

This feature can be enabled or disabled in any record mode (even movie mode.) While image size is not reduced when using this feature, you can not make changes to ISO or Drive settings while it is enabled.

When you half-press the shutter release it starts the autofocus process and if it locks you'll get the "focus OK" green icon (top left). If focus fail you will get a red "can't focus" icon (not shown.) The "red lightning bolt" icon indicates the flash is charged and ready to fire.

The Panorama mode has an onscreen guide to help you make the best possible panorama pictures by getting the necessary overlap between successive images. Up to 10 frames can be captured and then stitched together with the Camedia Master software. You must use an Olympus brand xD-Picture Card to use the Panorama mode.

Movie mode lets you capture SHQ (640x480, 30fps), HQ (320x240, 30fps) or SQ (160x120, 15fps) resolution motion video with sound. The length of a movie is limited only by the available memory. Because the Stylus 1000 features a built-in microphone, the optical zoom may not be used during recording. However, you can preset the desired focal length before starting to record a movie.
