Record mode (Still) display
This is an example of some of the settings which are displayed over the live preview image on the LCD, in this example we can see:
Macro Focus, Sharpening Enabled, Image size 1856, 4 frames taken and a graphical representation of remaining Memory Stick space.
|Half-pressing the shutter release button causes the camera to focus and calculate exposure once it's done so a steady green "focus/AE lock" dot appears as can be seen in this image.|
After a full-press of the shutter release a review of the final shot is displayed along with the RECORDING message, you can't interrupt this process nor use the camera until the image has been written out to the Memory Stick.
In this example we've got the "pop-up" menu displayed over the preview image, this can be displayed or hidden at any stage by pushing up or down on the 4-way controller.
In record mode it is possible to get an immediate review of images taken without turning the mode dial to "Play", with the menu bar hidden simply press the 4-way controller to the left, the last image shot will be displayed along with the option to delete the image.
Switching to Play mode loads and displays the last image shot, there is a delay whilst the image is loaded from the Memory Stick.
This image is a sample of the display when switching to Play mode. Detailed overlaid is:
Image Size (1856 x 1392)
Pushing the zoom lever towards Tele zooms into the review image, magnification levels of: 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.5, 1.6, 1.8, 2.0, 2.2, 2.4, 2.7, 3.0, 3.3, 3.6, 3.9, 4.3, 4.7, 5.0 x. Holding the Tele button down to zoom in completely (5.0x) takes 6.3 seconds.
Selecting INDEX from the play menu displays 3 x 2 thumbnails, in this mode we can perform selective deletion from the menu, marking images individually for deletion.
|One other playback feature is the ability to rotate images in 90 degree increments, unfortunately final images will still need rotating when displayed on a PC.|
