Record Mode Screens & Menus



Kyocera Finecam S3

A typical record mode screen, the icons across the bottom are displayed after pressing the MENU button.



Kyocera Finecam S3

Activate the selftimer by using the first icon on the left. You change the image quality/mode by selecting the second icon on the left: (S)uperfine, (F)ine, (N)ormal, (T)IFF, (M)ovie. The "+/-" icon lets you adjust the exposure compensation. The icon on the far right gives you access to the manual exposure options shown in the next frame.

Playback Screens & Menus





Kyocera Finecam S3

Pressing the MENU button while in Play mode brings up the following options:

    MULTI - Display an index of six smaller images (see below)

    PROTECT - Protect images against accidental erasure

    ERASE - Delete current image

    ALL ERASE - Delete all images.

The second page of options includes:

    ROTATE - Rotate portrait mode images for proper display on a television set

    AUTO PLAY - Begins the sideshow function

    PRINT - Set DPOF printing information.





Kyocera Finecam S3

To examine images during playback on the small 1.5" screen there is a 2X zoom option that magnifies the image and allows you to scroll around using the 4-way selector.



Kyocera Finecam S3

This is the Index mode where you can quickly search through stored images to find one to playback full screen.

This is the menu that is accessed when you put the mode dial into the SETUP position. I'm sure the options are pretty much self-explanatory so I won't bother detailing them here.
