Toshiba PDR-3310


When shooting the in the Record mode you can quickly change the flash function from Auto to red-eye Auto, fill-in flash, or flash off(as is displayed in the top left). The top right of the display denotes the quality is set to Superfine and 27 photos can be recorded in the flash card's remaining free space. The flower display mid-screen left shows we have selected the macro focus mode,  pressing the scene control toggles it to a mountain icon signifying landscape mode or back to auto. Both Macro and landscape turn the flash off. The lower left icon is the battery charge indicator showing 2/3 battery life remaining.
