Olympus D-520 Zoom
Record Mode Screens & Menus
A typical record mode screen showing icons for selftimer, SHQ quality,
the position of the zoom is shown briefly whenever it is changed, and there's
space on the SM card for another 82 pictures.
When the Macro mode is enabled the color LCD automatically turns on so you can use it
as a viewfinder. The optical viewfinder suffers from parallax at extreme close range
so it is best to use the LCD for framing.
Record screen in movie mode, HQ quality (320 x 240), flash is disabled and there
is enough memory left for a total recording time of 410 minutes but the maximum
length of each clip in HQ mode is 15 seconds (60 seconds for 160 x 120 SQ mode).
No sound is recorded as the camera has no microphone.
Pressing the MENU button while in Record mode brings up this onscreen menu with
four options: DRIVE, MODE, FUNCTION and RESOLUTION.
SINGLE - Normal single-shot exposure mode
SEQUENCE - 1.2fps burst up to 8 frames in HQ mode
MOVIE - Motion video capture at 15fps
Digital Zoom - Enable/disable digital zoom
Metering - ESP or Spot
Sounds - Enable or disable camera beeps
Rec View - If ON then immediately view image after capture
LCD Brightness - Adjust the color LCD backlight
Time/Date - Set the internal clock
2 in 1 - Capture 2 images side-by-side in one frame
Portrait - Portrait mode
Panorama - Captures up to 10 images using the Stitch Assist mode on the LCD which is combined later on the computer.
SHQ - 1600 x 1200 low compression
HQ - 1600 x 1200 high compression
SQ1 - 1024 x 768
SQ2 - 640 x 480
