Record mode display
Here you can see an example of the live preview image on the LCD just prior to taking a shot, note the wide 3-area AF composition bracket in the center of the frame. Various settings information is displayed along the top and down the right side of the display (in this case): Battery status, image size and quality, remaining frames, Memory Stick status (bar graph), Flash cancel, Cloudy white balance, ISO 200 sensitivity, Macro focus, +0.7 EV compensation.
|Half-pressing the shutter release causes the cameras autofocus and metering systems to lock, a steady green dot and green AF brackets indicates a good AF lock and you can now see the exposure shown on the right side of the display. Note the shake warning icon because of the relatively slow shutter speed.||After fully depressing the shutter release a brief review of the image is shown while the image is flushed to the Memory Stick. If you wish to review the image for longer you must remember to keep the shutter release button depressed after the exposure.|
|Pressing the 4-way controller to the left displays the last image taken as above. This display is instantly interrupted by half-pressing the shutter release.||Switch to Center AF and the AF brackets move to just the center point, note the white on black [ ] icon to indicate AF mode.|
|The P9 features just five manual focus positions selectable from the menu (0.5, 1.0, 3.0, 7.0 m, Infinity). In manual focus mode the distance is displayed on the LCD monitor (as above).||Enable spot metering and a center cross + appears in the exact middle of the frame, this is the point which will be used to calculate metering.|
|Switching to play mode immediately displays the last image taken. The P9 uses a "rough thumbnail" initially while it loads the full resolution image from the Memory Stick. You don't have to wait for the higher resolution image to be able to scroll between images using the 4-way controller.||Pressing DISP removes all overlaid information. In play mode the lens will automatically retract after 15 seconds.|
|Pressing TELE on zoom magnifies the image in several steps up to x5.0. Once magnified you can use the 4-way controller to move around the image. In the examples above you can see magnification of 2.4x and 5.0x.|
|If you're magnified you can also 'TRIM' a lower resolution image from the currently displayed crop.||Alternatively you can use the RESIZE menu option to create a downsized copy of the entire image.|
|Pressing WIDE on the zoom controller enters this 3 x 3 thumbnail view where you can scroll around the images and perform various image manipulations.||While in thumbnail view mode pressing WIDE on the zoom controller once more enters this three thumbnail information display mode which shows basic exposure information for the selected image. Here we can see the exposure was ISO 200, F4.5, 1/30 sec..|
|Select ROTATE to rotate the current image in 90 degree steps. This does not rotate the JPEG file itself, instead it simply marks the correct orientation in the files header.|
|An example of movie clip playback, only HQX movie files are displayed using the entire LCD monitor.||The DIVIDE menu option allows you to divide an MPEG movie into two movies (useful for trimming the start or end from a clip).|
