Program AUTO mode offers fully automatic control over the exposure process for point-n- shoot simplicity, and can used by anyone regardless of their experience level. The brackets in the center indicate the focus area, there is capacity for 72 more images on the xD memory card, and the image size/quality is SHQ 2560x1920.

When you half-press the shutter the focus is locked, a green icon is displayed to indicate focus was achieved. The red "lightning bolt" indicates the flash is charged and will fire.

The Movie record mode screen. The total amount of recording time available is shown by the green "23:32" in the lower right hand corner. We have enough space on the xD card we used for our tests to record for 23 min. and 32 seconds. You can record movies at resolutions of 320x240 or 160x120 without audio. The length of recording is limited only by the amount of space available on the xD card. The zoom can be preset before recording, but it can not be changed during recording.
