Record Mode Screens & Menus




Kodak EasyShare C533

Here's a live screen showing the AUTO record mode. Icons across the top indicate the flash is in Auto mode, 5.0MP image size, 158 pictures remaining, and the upper right icon indicates we are using an optional SD memory card. The "0.0" on the bottom is the exposure compensation value. You can change this value by pressing left or right on the 4-way controller.

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.
