Olympus's Stylus 7040 is a "Hybrid" camera, meaning that the camera is always ready to capture both still images and record video, thanks to separate video record and shutter release buttons. Unless you turn off all of the information, you will see the image and video record size as well as the number of images remaining as well as the amount of recording time that is left on the selected memory source in the bottom right corner.
