Just like the 6900Z the S602Z allows you to select (and shoot at) F2.8 at full telephoto (where the lens is specified as having a maximum aperture of F3.1) - this is plain wrong.
Full Manual Exposure
Setup menu is described later in this review.
All of the buttons below are used in combination with the command wheel. To change a setting you hold the button and roll the command wheel at the same time.
Set the exposure compensation (+/-2 EV in 0.3 EV steps), a metering bar is displayed on the LCD (or EVF) to indicate current exposure compensation.
The S602Z has a new unique "Last 5" continuous shooting mode, in this mode the camera will take up to 25 frames but records only the last 5 frames (which appears to be its buffer maximum). This mode could be very useful at sporting events allowing you to predict the action and stop shooting just after it happens, thus capturing the moment.
Select drive mode:
Off (Single Frame)
Continuous (5 fps up to 5 frames)
Auto Bracketing (3 frames)
Continuous "Last 5" (5 fps, up to 25 frames, records last 5)
Continuous 1 mp (1.8 fps up to 40 frames at 1280 x 960) *
* Only available in Auto exposure mode (???)
