The rotating dial in front changes camera settings like aperture and shutter speed while the directional buttons on the back are used for the camera's menu system.

The remaining camera controls are on the back panel, along with the 1.6-inch color LCD monitor. At the top left and right corners are the neck strap attachment eyelets, which fold outward for easy loading, then flip back inward to hold the strap in place. The Four-Way Arrow pad is in the top right corner, and consists to two arrow keys on either side, and a two-way up/down rocker button in the center that controls optical and digital zoom. (The left and right arrow keys can be programmed to control one of a handful of exposure options as well.) To the left of arrow pad is the Menu button, which calls up and dismisses the LCD menu display. Just below it is the Playback button, which places the camera in Playback mode. The camera's speaker is also on the rear panel, just to the right of the LCD monitor.

    Power Button: Unobtrusively located to the left of the Shutter button on the top panel, this button turns the camera on and off.



    Shutter Button: Directly to the right of the Power button, this button sets focus and exposure when pressed halfway, and fires the shutter when fully pressed.



    Mode Switch: Just behind the Power and Shutter buttons, this control puts the camera into Still Record or Movie modes.



    Right and Left Arrow Keys: Located in the top right corner of the back panel, these buttons curve around the two-way zoom toggle button. In any settings menu, these buttons navigate through menu choices. They can be programmed to control one of the available exposure functions through the settings menu. In Playback mode, these buttons scroll forward or back through previously captured images. When in scrolling mode during zoomed playback (see the following entry for more info), these buttons move your view right or left in the enlarged playback image.



    Zoom Toggle Button (Up and Down Arrow Key): Centered between the Right and Left Arrow keys, this control adjusts the optical and digital zoom in any record mode. It also serves as the up/down control when navigating LCD menu choices. This button also serves as the "OK" button for confirming menu selections when pressed.

    In Record mode, pressing and holding this button for a few seconds dismisses and recalls the information overlay.

    In Playback mode, this button lets you zoom in on an image, as much as 6x. Once you've zoomed in on an image, pressing the center of this button switches to scrolling operation, after which up/down actuation moves your view up and down in the enlarged image. Pressing the center of the button again returns you to control of the playback zoom level. Pressing the center of the button during normal playback display cancels and recalls the information display. Continuing to hold the button down initiates the playback zoom



    Menu Button: Directly to the left of the Four-Way Arrow pad on the rear panel, this button calls up the settings menu in both Record and Playback modes



    Playback Button: Beneath the Menu button, this button activates Playback mode (or returns to Record mode).

    feel free for the further assistance.

    thanks.

Press the 4-way switch downwards to cycle through the selftimer modes: First press shows the selftimer symbol, which means 10 secs delay, next press shows selftimer2 symbol, which gives 2 secs delay.

Keypad ribbon failure!
All the buttons on the back run off a single ribbon which has 2 folds that split over time. This cannot be repaired. Only replaced.

The symbol to which you refer is 1 of three colour settings selected by the "F" button. The "C" is chrome. The other 2 are, "B&W" black and white, "S" standard. The "key" symbol is actually a film symbol.

How to use a minolta dimage g500 camera


Do you mean the memory card in your camera or do you mean another device?

First check that your memory card works in another device. There is a lock button on the SD card that needs to be unlocked.

Second, check that your camera settings have the SD card option selected. You can select the destination of your images.
