Record Screens & Menus

Note: please excuse the quality of these images, the ST80 camera kit does not include an AV cable, therefore we had to photograph the LCD.

This is the ST80's Smart shooting mode, which is fully automatic. This mode is perfect for those who just want to point-n-shoot. In this mode you are only able to change the photo size, flash mode, or enable the self-timer. This is Samsung's intelligent exposure program that automatically chooses all of your settings for you, including choosing the best scene mode for the shot being framed. This will give the average user the best results for various types of shooting, without having to deal with complicated settings.


Half pressing the shutter release brings you to the ready screen. The AF mark(s) being used will turn green if focus is achieved or red if it fails. The camera will display the Scene setting chosen (Macro) and the aperture (F15.9) selected. Their are also a variety of other icons shown that display the photos settings. These include the 14M quality, OIS is on, the flash is set to Smart Auto and is charged and ready to fire (red glow), top right you can see the battery level indicator, and that we have room on our microSD card for 426 photos.

You can also see several buttons to change the flash mode, enable the Self-timer, toggle the screen display settings, use the Motion Detection feature, enter the Wi-Fi settings, and the Menu button.

With the ST80 set in program mode, the camera selects both shutter speed and aperture values automatically. However, this will allow access to more advanced camera settings like ISO, White balance, Metering, Focus Area, etc. Using the small shortcut tab at the bottom of the screen will show the shortcut menu. This allows you to change most settings available more efficiently.

This is the shortcut menu described above. The available settings depend on what shooting mode you are in.
