Olympus D-560 Zoom Review
By Movable Type Admin
Record Mode Screens & Menus
Typical still image record mode screen showing icons for "P"rogram AE,
SHQ quality, image size of 2048x1536, flash off and there's space on the
xD-Picture Card for another 28 pictures. The zoom bar also shows up
momentarily whenever the zoom is changed.
When Macro focus mode is enabled the color LCD automatically turns on so
you can use it as the viewfinder. The color LCD is the only information
display so whenever you change flash modes or enable macro mode or self
timer the screen will come on for a few seconds.
The Slow Shutter warning is displayed if the
flash is disabled and the camera selects a shutter speed that is too
slow to be handheld - use of a tripod is recommended.
Movie mode, HQ quality (320 x 240) at 15 frames per second, flash is
disabled and there is enough memory left for a total recording time of
215 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. The zoom may
be used during movie recording.
