LCD Panel Readouts

The Sony Alpha DSLR-A850’s generously expansive 3-inch color LCD shows you just about everything you need to see, from your own images to a collection of informational data displays. Here’s an overview of these displays. The recording information displays, shown earlier in Figures 2.14 and 2.15, normally appear on the LCD when you’re shooting photos. Because the camera is equipped with an always-on eyepiece sensor feature, the recording information display will vanish when you bring the Alpha up to your face, or when 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 automatically re-orient themselves, too, for easy viewing. If for some reason you don’t want any display to appear on the screen while you’re shooting, you can turn it off by pressing the DISP button while the Enlarged display is on the screen.

The information shown in the Detailed and Enlarged 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 below which information is available in only the Detailed display mode.
