Portrait Mode: Optimizes the camera for capturing portraits. A larger aperture is used, so that the subject will appear sharply focused in front of a slightly soft background. This works fine if you have the size and bulk of a typical external flash unit to work with, but there isn’t nearly enough room (or money in the manufacturing budget) to allow a solution of this sort in a prosumer digicam. Display Button: Just off the lower right corner of the LCD monitor, this button toggles the viewfinder display back and forth between the EVF and LCD monitors. Macro: Selects Normal, Macro, or Super Macro modes.
Fans of the RAW image format can also use Camedia Master to tweak the properties of your images. The bottom of the camera holds the battery compartment cover and a plastic screw-mount tripod socket. All-in-all, I like what I saw from the C-8080. Have a look at the gallery and see if you do too.
The C-765 measures only 4.1 x 2.4 x 2.7 inches (104.5 x 60 x 68.5 millimeters) with the lens retracted, and is only three-quarters of an inch thicker with the lens fully extended.

Below the AF-assist lamp is the AE-lock button. At the top-left of the photo is the shutter release button.
