Viewing the memory gauge
In the Capture mode, the Overlay bar displays a memory gauge that gives the status of working memory (DRAM) and memory on the memory card. Memory card Working memory Working memory is the memory the camera uses to process pictures. The working memory gauge fluctuates as the camera processes pictures. When the camera has completely processed all pictures, by either saving them to the memory card or deleting them, the working memory gauge will be clear. The memory card gauge shows space used on the memory card in red and space available as white. As the camera processes pictures and saves them to the memory card, more of the memory card gauge fills with red.
