Olympus E-620 Digital SLR

Here you can see a screen taken while using Live View mode. It looks much like a consumer digicam with icons that indicate we are using Auto exposure mode, shutter speed (60) and aperture (F3.6), Imager AF mode (I-AF), Digital ESP metering, Large Fine + RAW quality, images are being saved to the CF card, and there's enough room on that card for 715 frames at the current configuration.

When AF locks, it will briefly show the intended area of focus (not shown), and a Green AF ready dot will appear in the upper right hand corner of the screen.

When you turn the Mode Dial to the ART/SCENE position you will first be shown a menu of the available Art filter/modes (Pop Art, Soft Focus, Pale and Light Color, Grainy Film, Light Tone and Pin Hole Camera filter). These filter options allow you to explore your creativity, with various presets for exposure, color, sharpness and white balance settings.
