Icons across the top indicate the flash is in Auto mode, 5.0MP image size, 310 pictures remaining, upper right icon indicates we are using an optional SD memory card, halfway down the right side is an icon that indicates we have selected Multi-zone focus mode, on the left is the zoom lens gauge that displays for a few moments whenever you change the focal length, the "0.0" on the bottom is the exposure compensation value.

When you half-press the shutter to achieve the focus and exposure lock, the AF target marks will turn green and show what area it is focusing on. If the focus is locked there will be a "green dot" displayed, if not it will be red and will indicate either focus or exposure failure.
