Here you can see the typical record mode screen. The "AUTO" indicates Auto exposure mode, in the center are the auto focus target marks, and across the bottom is image quality, SHQ = Super High Quality and there's enough space our xD card for 82 pictures.

When you half-press the shutter release it starts the autofocus process and if it locks you'll get the "focus OK" green icon (top left). If focus fail you will get a red "can't focus" icon (not shown.) The "red lightning bolt" icon indicates the flash is charged and ready.

Digital Image Stabilization mode is also located on the Mode dial (shaky hand symbol) and uses high ISO sensitivity settings to keep shutter speeds higher in order to reduce the blurring effects of camera shake or subject movement during the exposure. Image size is not reduced when using this feature.

Movie mode lets you capture SHQ (640x480) or HG (320x240) resolution motion video at 15fps without sound. The length of a movie is limited only by the available memory. Because the FE-210 does not record audio, the optical zoom may be used during recording. Clips are saved in AVI Motion JPEG (.AVI) format.
