Record Modes & Screens


Nikon Coolpix L10


AUTO record mode is the point-n-shoot mode that lets anyone get great pictures with little or no fuss. The "5M*" icon indicates the image resolution is 5-megapixels at Fine quality and there's 763 pictures remaining at the current image resolution. The zoom lens gauge is shown for a few moments whenever the focal length is changed (not shown above.)

When you half-press the shutter release the autofocus is locked and the exposure is calculated and set. If autofocus was successful the AF dot icon is green, if it fails it is red and blinks.
