Just slide open the lens cover to turn on the camera. The first thing you see on the LCD screen is the camera's current settings. The top left icon shows the Shooting mode is set to Auto. The next icon shows Face Detection is on. When there is no flash icon, the flash is on automatic, otherwise there will be some type of icon shown. More info is provided on the top right of the screen. You can see the Resolution is set to 8M (8-megapixels) and next that the Quality is set to F (fine) and that you can take 259 more images at the current resolution. All this info is only displayed for a few seconds when you open the cover of the camera. By pressing the DISP. button you can choose to show this info all the time, take it away or even show a grid on the screen to help you with framing your shots.
