Record Screens & Menus

(Note: Please excuse the quality of these screen captures, Sony does not provide an Audio/Video cable with the A330, so we had to photograph the LCD.)

When using Live View mode, the A330 acts much like a consumer point-n-shoot. Displayed on the LCD are indicators for battery life (1 bar), image quality (FINE), image size (Large JPEG), Memory Card used (MS=Memory Stick Duo), number of remaining frames on current settings (864), Tungsten White Balance mode, Dynamic-Range optimizer (Standard), Exposure mode used (P=Program), and we are using ISO (100). You can also see the AF points.
