For now, I am interested in the "Display Information Button" (i+). I understand that pressing this button toggles between the four displays as follows:

1. Standard display - Nothing untoward here. Just shows the current settings.

2. Real-time histogram - Histogram here is useful in setting proper lighting. I presume a relatively normal bell-curve display would indicate proper lighting. If not, please correct me in this.

3. Focus frame only - Again, nothing untoward, just provides an uncluttered view of the image.

4. Live image only - provides a clear view of the image.

Now, it becomes a little tricky:

Press the shift button, on the side of the camera, and the i+ button at the same time to obtain two additional displays as follows:

1. Grid - I presume this is useful for composition. Proper placement of characters or objects within the image as well as proper orientation. If this is not so, please correct me.

2. Scale - This is the biggie! I cannot think how this might be useful. The scale does not change as the zoom is employed and there are no markings to the scale. If you have ideas how this might be used, I would appreciate any ideas.

Well! This is a revolting development. I thought surely someone here would know more than me and would like to show off and give me an answer.

To Steve, Kalypso, or JimC:

If you read this, please delete this here. I'm going to repost it under the Konica Minolta forum below.
