This is the still image record screen. The top-center icon indicates the record mode (single, movie, selftimer, night scene.)

Lower left is the status of the battery and on the right is the time and date.

Resize image to 640x480 or 320x240 for web use or email. Copy images from internal 12MB memory to SD card or vice-versa.
