Record Mode Screens & Menus


Fujifilm FinePix A920


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.

The Movie record mode display. The top info line indicates the movie recording size is 320x240 followed by the remaining recording time (25m33s) at this quality setting. The A920 records motion video with audio at a resolution of 320x240. Since audio is recorded, the optical zoom can not be used during movie recording.
