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:
4 MP image size, image quality setting (), Flash cancel, Macro focus, Battery status, 24 frames remaining at this Image quality, -0.5 EV exposure compensation.
|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 (4:19 in this case) refers to the total amount of 1 minute clips you would be able to take. Note the frame coverage is slightly different in movie clip mode.||Here's an example of the way the 850 uses text prompts to indicate settings or mode changes. In this example we've changed exposure compensation.|
|Example of aperture priority mode, in this case we have half-pressed the shutter release after selecting F5.9 and the camera is indicating that the exposure will be outside the camera's exposure range.||Example of shutter priority mode, again half-press after setting the shutter speed to 1/30 sec, in this case the camera has selected an aperture of F5.0.|
|Zooming past the maximum optical telephoto enters digital zoom mode, on the 850 this is indicated by a cropping box which reduces in size as you zoom further. This is a particularly honest approach to digital zoom...||Here's an example of Manual preset white balance, select 'Manual' from the white balance menu, aim at a white object and half-press the shutter release to take a white balance reading.|
|This is the default Play mode display, frame count is indicated in the bottom right of the image. Use the left and right cursors on the 4-way controller to browse through images.||This was difficult to capture as it takes less than a second. The 850 uses a '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 OK button displays the menu sidebar over the left side of the image. This is the only way to access the delete, annotate, and magnify functions.||Selecting delete from the menu displays this option page, you can delete this image, all images or format the SD card. The 850 even animates the deletion of an image [clip].|
|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.|
