Record display

Here we can see an example of the default live display view, the center brackets indicate the auto focus area. Information overlaid in this case:

Image quality setting (), Macro focus, Battery status, 112 frames remaining at this Image quality.

Here we're already half-pressed the shutter release and are ready to shoot. The AF brackets have turned green to indicate a good AF lock, if auto focus fails the brackets turn red and 'UNABLE TO FOCUS', 'FOCUS TOO CLOSE' or 'FOCUS TOO FAR' (macro) will be displayed on the monitor. After shooting a review of the image taken is displayed briefly (approximately 3 seconds).
An example of movie record mode, note that the remaining time (10:33 in this case) refers to the total amount of 1 minute clips you would be able to take. Here's an example of the way the 812 uses text prompts to indicate settings or mode changes. In this example we've switched to self-timer mode. The 'SELF-TIMER' text is displayed only briefly.

Play display

Press the OK button to display the last image taken, the two arrows indicate we can browse left or right through the images taken. This was difficult to capture as it takes less than a second. The 812 uses a unique 'smooth scroll' between images, sliding the next image on from the left or the right and pushing the current image off the screen.
Pressing the menu button displays the menu sidebar over the left side of the image. This is the only way to access the delete, magnify and rotate functions. Selecting delete from the menu displays this option page, you can delete this image, all images or format the SD card.
Selecting magnify from the menu switches to this 4x magnification view, use the 4-way controller to scroll around the magnified image. Pressing the Image Mark button allows you to mark the image for printing (one or two copies) and/or transmission by e-mail.
