Record Screens & Menus

By


nikon_s30_rec_auto.jpgThe Nikon S30 has the simplest user interface we've ever seen. There are only fully automatic modes to choose from, like Point and Shoot (aka Auto) shown above. The buttons on the left control the colored circle you see on the left of the LCD. Icons on the screen show you the battery level indicator, the zoom indicator (shows up when you zoom the lens), the number of images left or video time remaining until the memory card is full, and the image mode icon.


nikon_s30_rec_ready.jpgWhen you half-press the shutter release, the camera will choose the appropriate exposure settings and attempt to lock focus. If successful, the AF marks will turn Green, and the exposure settings will display at the top of the screen. If it fails, the AF marks will turn red.



nikon_s30_rec_menu.gifHere you can see the menu options available when you press any one of the four buttons along the left hand side of the LCD. Pressing the button that coincides with the colored circle on the left will select that option.

Available Options:
  • Change colors
  • Decorate
  • Choose a style
  • Change sounds
  • Flash mode
  • Self-timer
  • Choose a size
  • Movie AF
  • Set up

They include: Point and shoot, Shoot close-ups, Shoot under water, Take a series of pictures, Shoot at intervals, Photograph food, Highlight colors, Take soft pictures, Create a diorama effect, and Photograph fireworks.
