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

Pressing the MENU button in shooting mode overlays the record menu over the live scene preview (black background used here for clarity). Other shooting menus are a subset of this menu.

The layout is fairly standard Cyber-shot, a row of options along the bottom of the display. The primary difference is that the background to each 'pop-up' is now semi-transparent.

We use this daily (2014). It is slow, but with 2 x 285HV (Original), for product shots. It does a very good job. The color is slightly off. It sits upon a Tiltall tripod from about 25yrs ago. (spotting a trend here). I figure that if I have the equipment sitting around, might as well put it to use.

Who’s “we”? Do you have a mouse in your camera bag?

Had this camera before I bought my first DSLR, the 5D Classic. It is a capable camera, the first time I bought a Sony, as Canon did not have something comparable. I shot two Tokio Hotel concerts with this one, some pictures with 3200 ISO that turned out usable. Just the red tones are a little bit too speckled. Bought a DSLR afterwards because the R1 is quite slow.

Agreed about the speed of handling, and by today's standards, the higher ISO settings are quite poor.

But where these aspects don't really matter, its IQ from the superb Zeiss lens can still give a modern dlsr a run for its money. And it would have to be a top of the range one as well, with top jolly optics.
