Record Menu (P/A/S/M exposure modes)

Pressing the MENU button in record mode overlays the record menu over the live scene preview (black background used for clarity).

The Sony menu system hasn't changed very much since the first Mavica (and although functional is looking a little tired now). Menu options along the bottom of the screen, use the 4-way controller left/right to move along the menu and press up/down to change a setting.

Other record mode menus

Auto record menu, a limited number of options for the camera's new point-and-shoot mode. Useful for handing the camera to a complete novice.

Movie clip record menu, allows you to select between 320 x 240 HQX (16 fps), 320 x 240 EX (8 fps) or 160 x 112 (8 fps).

 
Scene record mode, almost all the options of the P/A/S/M menu apart from ISO sensitivity and the addition of the scene selection menu.  


Play Menu

Pressing the MENU button in play mode overlays the play menu over the displayed image (black background used for clarity).

Menu layout is quite similar to record mode, press the 4-way controller left/right to choose an option then depress it fully to select.
