Kodak EasyShare V570 Zoom

The V570's LCD presents a wealth of exposure and operating information.

Here's a live screen in the AUTO mode. Icons across the top indicate Macro mode is off, the flash is in Auto mode, 5.0MP image size, 474 pictures remaining (there's a 1GB SD card in our camera), upper right icon indicates we are using an optional SD memory card, the "0.0" on the bottom is the exposure compensation value. On the left is the zoom lens gauge that displays for a few moments whenever you change the focal length; the red zone on the bottom indicates that the 23mm ultra wide fixed focal length lens is being used, and the yellow zone above represents the 39-117mm zoom lens.

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 the ready lamp on the camera's back will glow green, if not it will blink yellow and a red "AF" indicator will be displayed on the LCD.
