Record Screens & Menus

canon_sd940_rec_auto.jpgThe screen display in the Automatic record mode. Icons on screen indicate the exposure mode being used (AUTO), Flash is set to off, the battery level is full, and orientation is horizontal (small camera icon at the top right).




canon_sd940_rec_program.jpgProgram exposure mode is like Auto in that the camera selects both the shutter speed and aperture for a correct exposure, but you now have access to a multitude of more advanced Function and Menu options; like metering, ISO, White balance, etc.




canon_sd940_rec_ready.jpgWhen the color LCD is turned on and you half-press the shutter you will see which of the nine AF points (green rectangles) were used for the focus lock. The aperture and shutter speed values are also shown along the bottom. The orange glow is from the AF-assist lamp.
