Record Screens & Menus

(Note: These screen shots were taken from a Casio .pdf user manual as the 5345z lacks a video output port which we use for our normal screen captures; in some cases there are minor differences between the 5345z and the Casio QV-R51 on which it is based.)

Here's the LCD display in record mode with all possible screen icons shown. The actual amount of screen information shown is dependant on camera settings and you can have a perfectly "clear" view by pressing the DISPlay button several times.

The NICESHOT mode has 19 pre-defined "scenes" that you can select from to suit your shooting conditions. These scenes will automatically set the appropriate camera functions and values to produce the best possible images.

Select from: portrait, scenery, portrait w/scenery, children, candlelight portrait, party, pet, flower, natural green, sundown, night scene, night scene portrait, fireworks, food, text, collection, monochrome, retro, or twilight.

Movie Mode lets you record up to 60 seconds of 320 x 240 motion video. There is no microphone so the movies are silent. Using the internal 10MB of memory you can record a total of 60 seconds, using a 64MB SD card you can record ~410 seconds, but each clip is limited to 60 seconds. Movie clips are saved in standard AVI format (Motion JPEG).
