Record Modes & Screens


(Note: Please excuse the poor quality of these screen captures, the Ferrari Digital does not output video while in record mode. Therefore we had to photograph them directly off the LCD.)

Typical record mode screen. The "P" indicates Program AE exposure mode. In the center are the auto focus target marks. A zoom indicator (sliding bar) is displayed momentarily whenever the focal length is changed (not shown.) Across the bottom is image quality, SH = Super High quality, image size is 2048 x 1536 (3 megapixels) and there's enough room remaining on our memory card for 641 pictures.

The Panorama mode has an onscreen guide to help you make the best possible panorama pictures by getting the necessary overlap between successive images. Up to 10 frames can be captured and then stitched together with the Camedia Master software. You must use an Olympus brand xD-Picture Card to use the Panorama mode.
