The D372 features a "Easy Q" button for instant access to the included image stabilization mode to keep the source video from reflecting simple involuntary movements while recording. The D372 also features a "what you see IS what you get" 16:9 recording option to capture the entire image you want, that way it will completely show up on an HDTV screen. It includes a .3" color LCD viewfinder and a 2.7" 4:3/16:9 LCD preview screen (16:9 image is compacted on preview screen for viewing, this does not affect the source video).
