Record Screens & Menus

This is a standard view of the Auto mode. This will handle all of the exposure process for you. However, you are able to change settings like ISO, AF mode, Exposure compensation, white balance, etc. Icons on the screen are the battery level indicator, Anti-Shake is set to Auto (shaky hand symbol), and along the right you can see image mode (12m/Fine), flash mode (off), etc.

Here we have the shutter release half pressed and the autofocus is locked and the exposure is calculated and set. If autofocus was successful the AF marks will turn green, if it fails they turn red and blink.

This is a view of the movie recording mode. This is as easy as pressing the video record button on the back of the camera. Pressing once will start your movie, press again and it will end. During record mode Optical zooming is disabled although digital zooming is available. However, the digital zoom will decrease the quality of the video. You will see in the image above the red REC symbol, which indicates the camera is recording. The center top are the Flash on/off and Movie mode icons, and in the center is the AF frame. The top right shows how much recording time is available on the card and the red timer shows the time of the current recording. On the bottom left is the battery life indicator.

The "BS" screen shown here has the EX-H5's 42 Best Shot presets. You can access this screen in capture mode by pressing "Set" and scrolling down to the "BS" symbol. This allows you to choose a variety of pre-set picture modes.

Here we have the shortcut menu for many of the EX-H5's settings. This is accessible by simply pressing the "Set" key. Your four-way pad will then easily navigate you through the selections. From here you can quickly access setting for image quality, flash mode, AF mode, self-timer, etc. It also allows you access to the main menu as well as the Best Shot modes screen (shown above).
