Above is the display while in Auto record mode. The line of info across the top starts on the left with a red box containing a camera icon and "A" which is the symbol for Auto Record mode. The "2M" represents image resolution of 2 megapixel (1600x1200) and the "400" represents the quantity of frames that can be recorded on the xD card at the current image size.
