That's a DSI or DownScan Imaging. I love it. I have the Raymarine Dragonfly with DSI.

Yes, it shows the different branches on submerged trees and you can see the fish as bright dots amongst the branches. I can see dots on the bottom too.

Schools look like clouds. The bigger the fish the bigger and brighter the dot from what I can tell. Sometimes, because of their density, the FF tells me the bottom is the top of the school.

I don't use the old style even though that's available.

Also remember that fish will not always appear as a perfect arch, they will look different depending on boat speed. This picture was taken while I was vertical jigging a blade bait. The zig zag line between 20 and 30 ft is my lure, the yellow and red line underneath it is a crappie. Around the middle of the screen, the fish hit my lure and I reeled him up.

What finder are you using?

That first picture I borrowed from the BBC boards, that was probably an HDS 8 or 10 as it has 4 panels on split screen. The second picture was my Lowrance HDS7. All are about the same as far as sonar, down scan and such go, just different screen sizes and the HDS units have more capabilities to do other things.
