Record Mode Screens & Menus
Across the top from left to right: Flash status, image quality (2 stars for 1800x1200 or 1 star for 900x600), number of pictures remaining and the memory source (internal or card).
The Quickview option will display the picture just taken for about four seconds as shown
here with the Trashcan icon enabled so you can immediately delete it before it is
stored. If you do nothing the image will be stored and the LCD turns off again.
If the LCD is enabled you can use the Digital Zoom feature by pressing the Up button.
The digital zoom is variable from 1.1x to 3.0x and is indicated by an icon on the
lower left of the screen. The icon in the center of the bottom indicates that the
date stamping option is active.
When the camera is switched into Macro mode the color LCD
is automatically turned on. The macro range is 9-12 inches so there would be severe
parallax error if you tried to frame the shot using the optical viewfinder.
Pressing the Flash button on the back cycles through the various flash modes as
indicated on the color LCD screen. If the LCD is off it will turn on for several
seconds each time you push the button to change the flash mode.
Pressing the MENU button while in Record mode lets you change the following options:
Quality - Best 1800 x 1200 or Good 900 x 600 (should be called Size as there is no setting for JPEG quality, just image size)
Image Storage - Internal or Auto (if CF card is inserted then use it)
Date Stamp - Off, YYYY MM DD, MM DD YYYY, DD MM YYYY (overlay date stamp in lower right hand corner of picture)
Quickview - Off or On (display picture just taken and allow for deletion)
The SETUP menu accessed from the Mode Dial:
Date & Time - Set the time and date
Video Out - NTSC or PAL format
Language - Menu language
Image Storage - Internal or CF card
About - Display firmware revision number
Format - Format the memory card or internal memory
