On the back of the camera you will find the large, 2.7-inch LCD screen, which is great except that it only has 114,960 dots (479 x 240). This is only half of the resolution of most other digicams on the market today.

Back Controls: At the top you see the dedicated Video Record button that allows you to capture video instantly, no matter what shooting mode you are in. Next come the Playback and Shooting Mode buttons, allowing you to easily change between the two modes. Under that is the 4-way controller and SET button. These allow you to search your stored images, navigate your menus and change your shooting settings. It also allows you to change the amount of info on the LCD and is a shortcut to the flash settings by pressing it up or down. At the bottom are buttons that open the camera Menu (MENU) and Scene mode menu (BS), which includes the Auto Best Shot mode.
