Pressing the Menu button once brings up this set of options. Here you can go into
Manual record mode, B&W mode or the StitchAssist mode for shooting panoramas.
Manual recording mode screen. Icons across the top are the same as automatic mode.
This time we are in Superfine/Large mode which drops the number of pictures
remaining down to 118.
You can shoot in a dedicated black and white mode if desired.
The last two icons select the StitchAssist panorama mode depending on which
direction you want to pan your sequence shots.
This is the easy (and right) way to aid someone in creating the proper overlap
necessary for excellent panoramas.
Pressing the Menu button again puts you into the Setup mode. Here you can
change the image size/quality (if in Manual), enable digital zoom, save the shooting
mode settings, reset the file numbering, change the beep sound, change the auto
timeout, format the CF card or select the menu language.
Enabling the digital zoom extends the 2x optical zoom to 4x digital. As with all
"digital" zooms, it produces highly pixelized pictures. It's better to shoot a large
picture and then digitally zoom (crop) it yourself later using a good graphic editor.
White balance presets for Automatic, Sunny, Cloudy, Incandescent and Flourescent.
No manual way of setting the white point though.
Onscreen realtime adjustment for the exposure compensation value.
