Fujifilm FinePix A700


The Auto record mode is a simple "Point-n-Shoot" 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 "7M" represents image resolution of 7 megapixels, the "F" indicates Fine compression (quality), and "264" represents the number of frames that can be recorded at the current image size. The yellow and gray brackets in the center show the autofocus target area, and the scale on the left indicates the zoom position (wide angle).

This is the Manual record screen. The only real difference between Auto an Manual mode, is you have access to White Balance and Exposure Compensation options. When these options are used, an Icon representing the selected WB will be displayed next to the "M", and the EV compensation will be displayed in the lower right.
