The "signon" boot message when you first turn the camera on. You can visually check to make sure the time and date are properly set.

A typical record mode screen with its associated onscreen icons. To left is the battery icon (full) along with a digital readout in minutes of remaining time. In the center is the recording mode and image size (1856 x 1392). We've shot 10 pictures already and the icon next to that indicates graphically how much space is left in the Memory Stick. Across the bottom is the record mode menu, see below for details.

This screen is what you see when you half-press the shutter button and get an autofocus lock (green circle). You'll also notice that we are in manual white balance mode, macro focus mode and the flash is disabled.

When in Manual Focus mode the LCD screen image is magnified 2x while you are turning the focus ring to make critical focusing easier. The focus distance is displayed next to the focus "finger" icon.
