Record Screens & Menus

The X-E1 has the option of allowing you to shoot using the LCD or just to use it as an information screen; much like that of a dSLR. If you are shooting with it, you have the option to turn the information on and off. With the information screen up, you still have to turn a dial or use the quick menu to make any changes.

Pressing the "Q" on the back of the camera takes you to the quick menu. Here you have 16 camera settings that can be accessed with the 4-way controller and changed with the command dial.

Pressing the DRIVE button on the back is how you change/select the shooting or drive mode for the camera. Your single shot, continuous, movie, panorama and bracketing modes are all here.
