Record Modes & Screens


Casio Exilim EX-FC100

AUTO record mode offers very few menu options, just image resolution and quality. The '9M' icon indicates the image resolution is 9-megapixels at Normal quality and there's 274 pictures remaining at the current image resolution. The zoom lens gauge is shown for a few moments whenever the focal length is changed (not shown above). Pressing the 4-way controller up changes the amount of information shown on the LCD screen.

Due to the movie record button this is also the movie record scene. You can record AVI. Movie clips limited in length only by the amount of remaining available memory. Sound is recorded with the moving image, and the optical zoom can not be used during movie recording - it can be preset before recording begins.

When you half-press the shutter release the autofocus is locked and the exposure is calculated and set. If autofocus was successful the AF marks will turn green, if it fails they turn red and blink. You will also see the selected shutter speed and aperture values across the bottom.
