Olympus FE-120 Zoom Review
Record Mode Screens & Menus
Note: Do to the FE-120 not having video output capabilities, these screens were taken
from similar Olympus models as well as the owners manual. Some settings may differ.
Here you can see Auto mode. This is a fully automatic mode that allows the camera to
choose all settings (shutter speed, aperture, ISO sensitivity, white balance, etc.), while the
user benefits from point-n-shoot simplicity.
Pressing the MENU is Auto mode brings up this Menu with options for Burst mode, Image quality,
Self-timer, and the Setup menu.
Program mode is also fully automatic, but gives access to several menu options that you
can not use with Auto, like white balance.
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.
Rotating the mode dial to the "Scene" position gives you access to these creative scene modes:
Self Portrait, Indoor, Beach, Snow, Fireworks, Sunset, Cuisine, Candle, Behind Glass, and
Available Light Portrait.
Pressing the MENU button while in any still recording mode (other than Auto) allows you to access
the FE110's Menu system. Here you can enable Burst mode, change the Image quality, choose the
desired scene mode, or enter the mode menu.
When changing camera settings like Self-timer, EV Compensation or focus modes, these function
menus are displayed for a few seconds on the color LCD.
The Macro (close-up) focus mode lets you shoot from 7.9" - 23.6" (0.2m - 0.6m) or you can get as
close as 0.8" (20mm) when using Super Macro mode.
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. The length of recording is limited only by the amount of space available on the xD
card. Because sound is not recorded, you may use the optical zoom during recording.
Shown above are the quality options for movie mode.
