LCD Panel Readouts

The Sony Alpha’s generously-expansive 2.7-inch color LCD shows you everything you need to see, from images to a collection of informational data displays. Here’s an overview of these displays. The Recording Information Displays, shown earlier in Figures 2.10 and Figure 2.11, should appear on the LCD when you’re shooting photos. If you have the Eye-Start autofocus feature activated, the camera will begin to autofocus and the Recording Information Display will vanish when you bring the Alpha up to your face, or the viewfinder is near any other object. (Press the DISP. button to produce it if you want to activate this display when it is not active.) When you rotate the camera to shoot vertical pictures, the text and icons on the Recording Information Displays re-orient themselves, too, for easy viewing.

The information shown in the Standard and Graphic Recording Information Displays includes the following information, with not all of the data available all the time, and the two types of screens showing slightly different types of data. I’ve indicated which information is available in only one of the two display modes.
