Record Screens & Menus
To select the camera mode, you simple touch the icon that is directly
above the Play "button". You can choose from: iAuto, Sweep Program, Movie Mode, Program, Anti Motion Blur, Hand-held Twilight, and Scene (SCN).
When you half-press the shutter release the AF system activates, and
when successful, the focus brackets will turn green (one for each point
that is in focus). The camera also displays a green "Focus OK" dot at
the bottom left corner along with the aperture value.
Here you can see the limited options when you touch the Menu button in iAuto.
You can also edit this these Rec menus to customize them to better fit your needs.
Here you can see the screen display in Program mode. While fully automatic like iAuto, here you have access to change more advanced settings like ISO, White Balance, etc. The intelligent scene recognition is not active in this mode.

You can record motion video with audio at 1280x720 (Fine or Standard)
or 640x480, with a frame rate of 30fps. To use the HD capabilities of
this camera, a Memory Stick Duo Pro card is required. Unlike most
digicams that record sound with video, the TX1 allows you to have full
use of the 4x optical zoom while recording. These Motion JPEG format
videos are saved as .MP4 files.
Here you can see the Sweep Panorama exposure mode, which allows you to easily create vast landscape type photos which are stitched together in-camera.
