Top of camera controls

Top of the camera is the power switch (normal Sony style slide for on, slide for off), the main mode dial which is used to switch immediately between Play (review images), Still (take still image shots) and Movie (record short video clips) modes. Just in front of this is the shutter release button, with a good feel between the half and full press.
