Record Screens & Menus

By

sony_tx1_rec_iauto.jpgAbove we have iAuto (Intelligent Auto) mode. This is a fully automatic "point-n-shoot" exposure option where the camera chooses all of the exposure settings for optimal photos. Like mentioned above, this is also an intelligent program that analyzes the subject being framed, then chooses the perfect Scene mode settings. There are very few options available, like Flash mode, Smile shutter, Self-timer, Continuous mode, etc. For those who like access to more exposure options, the TX1 also offers a Program AE exposure mode (shown below).



sony_tx1_rec_modes.jpgTo 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).


sony_tx1_rec_ready.jpgWhen 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.

sony_tx1_rec_movie.jpgYou 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.
