Record Mode Screens & Menus

Kodak LS443 Zoom

This is the screen display in the default AUTO (point-n-shoot) mode. Across the top are icons for flash mode, image quality, pictures remaining and internal memory or card storage. In the center are the auto focus marks, it has a 3 zone AF system and will automatically select center, right, left or a pair of zones. The icon on the bottom changes depending on the exposure mode.

Here we have half-pressed the shutter and the camera has selected the "left" AF zone as indicated by the smaller and red colored AF brackets.

This is an animated view of all the exposure mode screen displays (Auto, Sport, Night, Landscape, Closeup and Video.) As you can see, very little changes except for the icon on the bottom. The zoom is not available in the video capture mode.
