Record mode display
The E-10's default mode of operation is with the rear LCD off, it is after all designed as an SLR, however because of the split beam prism the CCD still receives the image, so you can use the rear LCD as a "real image viewfinder" just like any other digital camera. You can choose from three different displays in this mode:
|No information overlay||Camera settings and exposure information overlay|
|Focus distance overlay|
Using the LCD to take a shot:
|Use the live view to frame the shot (not as easy as it sounds if you have any information overlaid)||Half-press the shutter release and the image now better represents the look of the final exposure.|
|Fully depress the shutter release and the camera takes the shot, the LCD display will go blank for a second or so and then the review image is shown (far more detailed as you can see above).|
Switching to play mode immediately displays the last image taken. By holding the INFO button and rolling the main dial to the left you can overlay different levels of exposure information. If enabled a single press of the INFO button will overlay a histogram.
|Default basic display, just card type and frame number.||Hold INFO and roll control to left - more overlay information: card type, image size, file type / compression, date & time, frame number.|
|Hold INFO and roll control to left - yet more overlay information: card type, image size, file type / compression, shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation, white balance, ISO, folder, filename, date & time, frame number.||If enabled (through the setup menu) you can press the INFO button once to get this overlaid histogram. It's a shame Olympus haven't implemented a histogram display in record mode (after taking a shot).|
Below are some more typical displays in play mode:
|Pressing the protect button leaves this key icon overlay on the image to indicate it's been protected (actually sets the filesystem read-only flag).||Pressing the delete button displays this delete, yes/no prompt.|
|Rolling the main dial to the left one click switches to a 2 x 2 thumbnail view, use the 4-way pad to move around images.||Rolling the main dial another click to the left switches to a 3 x 3 thumbnail view, again, use the 4-way pad to move around images.|
|Rolling the main dial to the right magnifies the image progressively up to x4.0 (as shown here). Use the 4-way pad to move around the magnified image.||Press the left or right arrows on the 4-way pad to move between images on the storage card, this "loading" bar will appear while the camera retrieves the image. Pressing up or down skips by 10 images.|
