Record Screens & Menus
Here you can see the AUTO shooting mode, which is a fully automatic exposure mode that is perfect for those who want to point-n-shoot. There is limited access to camera settings, in fact, you can only change the AF mode, Flash mode, image size, Face Detection, AF Mode, image quality, Self-timer, Voice memo, OIS mode, and Color mode.
Program AE mode, is like auto, 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, etc. Almost all of the available camera functions are right on screen, you simply touch the icon to change the setting.
When you half press the shutter release, the AF marks will turn green if focus is achieve or
red if it fails. The flash icon also turns red when the flash is going to fire (not shown). You can also see the Aperture and Shutter speed values the camera has chosen.

In Manual mode, you now have the ability to select both the shutter speed and aperture values manually.
To help you acquire an accurate exposure, the live image darkens/lightens as you adjust the shutter speed/aperture, and there is also a small exposure meter at the left that displays a numerical icon indicating the exposure level. Above you can see the shutter speed scale, you simply slide your finger on the screen in order to change the value.
Touching the "Display" Icon on any screen in record mode brings up these options. They allow you to show Full exposure info, Hide all info as well as enable the Function Description.
