The "P" indicates Program (Auto) exposure mode, the shaky hand symbol indicates IS is enabled, in the center are the auto focus target marks, and across the bottom is image quality, HQ = High Quality (7-megapixels) and there's enough space on the 512mb xD card for 256 pictures.

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.

Movie mode lets you capture SHQ (640x480), HQ (320x240) or SQ (160x120) resolution motion video at 15fps with sound. The length of a movie is limited only by the available memory. Because the Stylus 760 features a built-in microphone, the optical zoom may not be used during recording. You can preset the desired focal length before starting to record a movie.
