Olympus SP-500 UZ Review

Record Screens & Menus
Program AE mode is much like Auto, but offers manual control
over certain aspects of the exposure process like ISO speed, white balance,
metering, focus mode, etc. The aperture is F2.8, shutter speed is 1/3 of a
second and the "0.0" indicates that there is no exposure compensation. The
"[ ]" in the center shows the autofocus area, the ISO is set at
80, and we are using SHQ (2816x2112) quality. There is enough room on the
memory card for 100 more shots with the current settings.
The use of a tripod is highly recommended for any macro mode!
