This is the record screen when using "Auto" exposure mode. At the top there are icons for storage media (SD), battery condition, number of pictures remaining, and image size/quality.

The PhotoSmart R707 captures 320x240 MPEG-1 movies at 30fps w/sound, limited only by the capacity of the memory. As with most digicams that record sound with video, the zoom cannot be used while recording but can be preset before recording begins.
