Your camera has a lot of features and parameters and you might not always remember exactly how they're all configured. Fortunately, there's an easy way to get a summary of the camera's essential settings, and that's the INFO button right here. If when I'm in Program mode I press the INFO button, I get this screen full of status information. First, Freespace, the amount of space available on my card in bytes, not number of images available. I've got 3.68 Gigabytes available. I'm shooting in the sRGB color space. I have no White Balance Shift or Bracketing dialed in.
Live View is enabled. Sensor Cleaning is enabled. You can see the camera with the little zs over it, that indicates that the camera is going to doze off in 30 seconds if I don't do anything, which probably means I need to talk faster. Beeping is enabled. That's the beeping that I get when I half-press the Shutter button. There is the camera dozing off, so I'm going to hit the INFO button again. Red-Eye reduction is disabled right now. That's on my flash. And Auto-Rotating is turned on. That's going to auto-rotate images in playback and there are different settings for that for camera and external display.
Finally, I can see the current date and time settings. So this is a way of quickly getting kind of some essential information without having to dig into the menus and look up each one of these settings individually.
