Record Screens & Menus

By

samsung_tl225_rec_smart.jpgHere you can see the SMART shooting mode, which is fully automatic, perfect for those who want to just point-n-shoot. There is limited access to camera settings, in fact, you can only change the photo size, flash mode, or enable the self-timer. This is an intelligent exposure program that chooses the correct exposure settings by analyzing the subject being framed, and then selects the proper Scene mode settings to use. This ensures you get optimal results for various types of shooting.

When you half press the shutter release, the AF marks will turn green if focus is achieved or red if it fails. Once exposure and focus are locked, the camera will display the Scene setting chosen (Macro) aperture (F9.1) and then the shutter speed value once you fully depress the shutter release. The icons on the screen that are boxed in can be touched to toggle their settings. You can also see icons that indicate we are using 12M quality, OIS is on, the flash is set to auto and is charged and ready to fire, at the top you can see the battery level indicator, and that we have room on our MicroSD card for 512 photos.

In Program AE mode, the camera selects both shutter speed and aperture values automatically. However, now you have access to more advanced camera settings like ISO, White balance, Metering, Focus Area, etc.

Touching the Menu icon brings up this menu of options. There are four tabs, Functions, Sound, Display, and Settings. Each tab brings up it's own menu, like the Function menu shown below.
