Record Mode Screens & Menus
The Auto record mode is a simple "Point-n-Shoot" mode. The line of icons across the top
indicates the settings of the camera. The camera is in "auto" mode and the face detection option is enabled with the auto flash on. The yellow camera indicates which power option is active (clear display). The "8M" represents image
resolution of 8 megapixels, "N" indicates Normal compression, and "214" is the number of remaining
frames. Below the "auto" is the battery indicator.
Half-pressing the shutter release locks the autofocus, showing the setting of the flash, aperture and shutter speed values.
The Manual record mode lets you select values for many exposure
options - see menu below. Shown here we have set the forced flash, Exposure
Compensation and Spot Metering.
In Picture Stabilization mode the camera boosts the ISO sensitivity (as high as ISO 2000),
allowing you to use a fast shutter speed, which helps reduce the effects of camera shake and
