Fujifilm FinePix 6800Z Review. Phil Askey
Record mode display
Here you can see an example of the live preview image on the LCD just prior to taking a shot, overlaid over the live view image is a single line of camera settings:
Exposure mode (manual), mode settings (macro, flash etc.), Image size (6M = 6 megapixel), Image Quality (F = Fine) and number of available frames.
Note the shake warning icon.
|Half-pressing the shutter release causes the cameras autofocus and metering systems to lock, the composure bracket reduces in size and the camera displays exposure information (in this case 1/30 sec @ F2.8).||After fully depressing the shutter release a brief review image is shown. You can disable this display or set it to require you to select OK to save the image before it's actually written away.|
|Auto Exposure display.||Special Exposure display. (Night Scene selected)|
|Movie Clip display. (Total seconds available in next clip is shown). Optical zoom is not available in Movie record mode, instead zoom is implemented digitally.||Audio Record display. The 6800Z allows you to make audio recordings of any length (assuming you have storage space).|
|Switching to play mode immediately displays the last image taken. This is the default amount of information displayed. Press DISP to remove the overlaid information.||Pressing DISP once more switches to a 3 x 3 thumbnail view, you can scroll around this view using the cursor keys and still access menu options such as erase.|
|The 6800Z offers a HUGE number of zoom levels, all the way to a virtually 1:1 magnification which allows you to see very pixel. Trimming allows you to create a new VGA image based on the current view.||This is full zoom of a 6 megapixel image, we've pressed DISP to get into panning mode, and can now use the cursor keys to move around the image.|
|If you hold down the left or right arrow for more than one second this very fast scrolling line of three thumbnails is displayed at the bottom of the screen, if you let go the selected image is shown (after about 1 second).|
