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).

Although a similar layout to previous Cybershot digital cameras (a row of options along the bottom of the screen) the menu font is now smoother, the selection bar clearer and the little 'tick mark' animates as you select an option.

The memory stick I need for this DCS-F828 is about 13/15" X 1/8"....larger than those on the market today.
