BASIC IMAGE RECORDING â¢ This causes an image or a message to appear on the monitor screen, and then enters the currently selected recording mode. â¢ If the camera is in the PLAY mode when it turns on, the message âThere are no filesâ will appear if you do not have any images stored in memory yet. In addition, the icon will be visible at the top of the display. If this happens, press [ ] (REC) to enter the currently selected recording mode.
3. Compose the image on the monitor screen so
the main subject is within the focus frame.
â¢ The focusing range of the camera depends on focus mode you are using (page 68). â¢ You can compose images using either the monitor screen or the optical viewfinder (page 54). â¢ When using the optical viewfinder to compose images, you can use the [DISP] button to turn off the monitor screen and conserve battery power.
2. Change the âREC
Modeâ setting to â Snapshotâ.
â¢ The (Snapshot mode) icon is displayed on the monitor screen while the Snapshot mode is selected. â¢ You can also use the key customization feature to assign the mode change operation to the cursor keys, so the âREC Modeâ setting is changed whenever you press the [ ] or [ ] key (page 104).
