Record mode display

Before half-pressing the shutter release, live preview image is displayed (refresh speed depends on power save setting), above this a status bar indicates current zoom level. In this example we've already half-pressed the shutter release and are ready to shoot. Note that the exposure is now displayed on the status bar.
After shooting a preview is displayed briefly, pressing the left arrow on the 4-way controller allows you to delete the image before it's written out to the CF card. This review can be interrupted by half-pressing the shutter release. After the shot has been stored you can press the right arrow on the 4-way controller to re-review the image.
Pressing the right arrow once more zooms into the image to a magnification of 4 times (after a short "processing" delay). Once zoomed you can use the 4-way to scroll around the magnified image.


Record menu

The record menu allows for control of remaining record functions such as white balance and quality / resolution. The menus are very nicely designed with icon hints and smooth scrolling menus. While this is very nice it does slow down getting from one menu to the next.. I was also disappointed that there weren't any shortcuts for some of these settings on the outside of the camera (without having to dive into the menus).
