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 indicating "AUTO" record mode. The "6M" represents image resolution of 6 megapixels, "F" indicates Fine compression, and "68" is the number of remaining frames. The yellow brackets in the center denotes the auto focus target area.
