Record Screens & Menus
By Matt Metzker
This is what recording in movie mode will look like. There are three options to shoot in; Wide 848x480 (which is pictured above), standard 640x480, and LP 320x240.
the DISP edge of the 4-way controller allows you the option of how much
information is shown on the LCD screen. If you like using the grid to line up your shots, it can be turned on through the main menu.
To access the FUNction menu press the button in the center of the 4-way controller. What functions are available is determined by which mode you are using.
Here we see the BestShot scene modes available. Bringing up this list is as easy as pressing the "BS" button located on the top of the camera and using the 4-way controller to navigate to the one you would like to use. Once there press the center button to select.
Two new BestShot scene modes make their debit with the G1, the are Interval Shot and Interval Movie. Both operations work the same: you can preset the camera to take so many images/movie clips so often for a predetermined amount of time. For example: take a picture every ten seconds for a three minute time span. The ratios are set using the 4-way controller.
