Record Mode Screens & Menus


Fujifilm FinePix A900


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 saying "auto" which is the symbol for Auto Record mode. The "9M" represents image resolution of 9 megapixels, the "F" indicates Fine compression (quality), and "197" 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.
