Record Screens & Menus

Program mode allows the user to control options like ISO, White Balance and Metering when shooting. The camera still adjusts for the exposure based on the user's settings. Above you can see the 3 different display modes that can be shown on the LCD or EVF during REC. mode.
Manual mode gives you complete control over all of the settings on the camera. There is even a manual focus ring on the lens. Not pictured are Aperture and Shutter priority, which allow you to set an aperture or shutter setting and the camera will adjust the other accordingly.
Pressing the shutter release half way allows the camera to auto-focus on your subject. When auto-focus is successful, you will see the yellow box with the white cross, if it is not successful, these will both turn red. It also displays your aperture and shutter speed in blue on the bottom.
Included in Fuji's list of scene modes are two that require the camera to quickly capture 3 images (bracket) that it uses to combine into one. Pro Focus and Pro Low-Light use three images to produce crisp images with a soft background or to show clear images in low-light situations with very little noise. The other scene modes include: Natural Light, Natural Light & Flash, Portrait, Portrait Enhancer, Landscape, Sport, Night, Night (Tripod), Fireworks, Sunset, Snow, Beach, Flower, Text.
The FSB mode on the mode dial is another that allows the camera to capture 3 images at a time. Each of the 3 images uses a different Fuji Film simulation. Provia/standard, Velvia/vivid, and Astia/soft are the 3 used. Black and white and Sepia can also be selected in any mode via the shooting menu.
The 4-way controller provides you with 4 convenient shortcuts to commonly used settings. Pressing the "Up" button turns on the 2x digital magnification, "Right" controls the Flash settings, "Down" controls the Self Timer and "Left" controls the Macro shooting.
