Record mode display
Here, an example of detailed information overlay and live histogram in Program Auto Exposure mode. Camera settings are shown down the left hand side of the display. Along the bottom are image quality and focus mode settings.
In this case: Flash Cancel, Macro focus, Single shot, 112 frames, Multi-segment metering, 2246 x 1680 FINE image quality, Shade WB, half zoom, +0.7 EV exposure compensation.
|After half-pressing the shutter release the selected focus bracket will either turn green to indicate a good AF lock or red to indicate no AF lock. Also displayed is the exposure (F2.0, 1/15 sec in this case) and because the shutter speed is relatively slow the 'hand shake' blur warning icon. Note that if you have 'focus expansion' enabled the center portion of the view will be magnified (see below).||After shooting a preview of the captured image is displayed very briefly. Pressing the PREVIEW button will redisplay this preview (with almost no delay) but no information, magnification or browsing can be can be carried out. You can however, delete the last shot by pressing the AE-L button when this preview is shown.|
|In live view mode press the DISP button to switch between display modes, here we have the live histogram overlay. Click here for an animated example of the live histogram changing in response to exposure compensation.||Press the DISP button once more to switch to a more basic shooting view (although still with some settings information).|
|Here's an example of focus expansion in auto focus mode, as soon as you half-press the shutter release a small portion of the center of the frame is magnified (live).||Focus expansion (if enabled) is displayed all the time in manual focus mode to assist in selecting the correct focus position.|
|When selecting a focus mode of Spot AF or Macro AF this grid of nine focus positions is temporarily displayed, you can use the 4-way control button to select one of them.||Through the record menu it is possible to enable a 'thirds' grid view mode which overlays on the screen to assist scene composition.|
|Example of Aperture Priority (A) mode, aperture is displayed and aperture will be calculated on a half-press of the shutter release.||Example of selecting a 'Best Shot' mode from one of the five built-in scene modes.|
|In addition to the 105 scene modes which come with the camera it's also possible to create 'User Setup' Best Shot scene modes based on the settings used to take an image already on the CF card.||Once added these User Setup modes appear as CF2xx in the Best Shot catalogue (and are recorded on the current CF card).|
** Note: it is possible to change this to a histogram display by pressing the SET button to hold the image on the screen then press DISPLAY to switch to histogram mode. All shots taken from then onwards will use a histogram display for image review.
|Just like many other digital cameras the QV-4000 uses a lower resolution 'thumbnail' image to provide an instant on screen image and then in the background loads the higher resolution image from the CF card, overlaying it once loaded (as shown by the animation above).||Press DISPLAY to remove all overlaid information and simply show the image alone.|
|Press DISPLAY again to switch to the histogram and detailed exposure information mode. Here we have additionally a histogram, exposure mode, drive mode, metering mode, flash mode, aperture, shutter speed, WB mode and file size.|
|Pressing the zoom controller towards telephoto the camera magnifies the displayed image in several steps up to x3.2. You can use the 4-way control button to scroll around the image.||Pressing the zoom controller towards wide angle and you'll get a 3x3 (9 image) thumbnail view of current images. Use the 4-way control button to navigate.|
