Record Screens & Menus

canon_300HS_rec_auto_display_anim.gif
Here we show the ELPH 300 HS in the Smart Auto record mode, with the different display options available. In auto mode the camera will select the best settings for your shot, along with choosing the best Scene settings based on 32 different pre-loaded situations. Icons on screen indicate the exposure mode being used (AUTO), Flash is set to off, the battery level is full, Video mode (1920), etc.



Program exposure mode gives the user more access to camera settings. In program mode the camera selects both the shutter speed and aperture for a correct exposure, but here you have access to a multitude of more advanced Function and Menu options; like metering, ISO, White balance, etc.

Half-pressing the shutter release shows which of the nine AF points (green rectangles) are going to be used for focus. If not able to focus the camera will not display the AF point/s. The ISO, aperture and shutter speed values are also shown along the bottom once the focus and exposure are locked.
