Record mode display
Live view information
|Normal view with basic information||Normal view with histogram and histogram information ('Display 1').|
|Default view for 'Display 2', as with 'Display 1' this can be customized via the Setup menu.||An example of customized 'Display 2' with all information shown, including a Rule Of Thirds grid.|
|If the histogram is shown on the selected display mode then the camera will also blink under / overexposed areas of the image. (Created here by using spot metering)||During a half-press this blinking turns steady to indicate clearly the areas of the image which will be under / overexposed.|
Exposure sequence & Review
|Typical live view before half-pressing the shutter release. Number of available frames in the top right corner along with battery status.||During a 'half-press' of the shutter release, the camera displays the AF area in green (if it achieved an AF lock), the exposure is also now shown (1/30 sec, F3.8).|
|After taking the shot a brief review is displayed. Note that it is possible to delete / cancel the image during review by pressing the delete button.|
Other record display examples
|Press the Fn button to display the customizable function menu, four options each assigned to a direction arrow.||An example of selecting White Balance from the function menu, the live view continues behind the selection menu.|
|Selecting the Picture (Scene) mode in PICT exposure mode.||An example of the panorama assist mode, here we have already taken one frame, a part of which is overlaid transparently on the live view.|
|Selecting the Digital Filter mode.||An example of the 750Z's unique Digital Exposure Metering Mode.|
|In manual focus mode the center portion of the frame is magnified during adjustment, after a couple of seconds that focus position is locked and the view reverts back to normal. You must press the focus mode button again to adjust focus.|
