Using the Mode Dial
This mode allows you to take close-up 
pictures of the subject, e.g. when taking 
pictures of flowers.
You can take pictures approaching the 
subject at a distance up to 5 cm (0.16 feet) 
from the lens by rotating the zoom lever 
upmost to Wide (1
k).
∫ Focus range
• We recommend using a tripod and the 
self-timer (P41) in the macro mode.
• When the subject is close to the camera, 
the effective focus range (depth of field) is 
significantly narrowed. Therefore, you will 
have difficulty in focusing on the subject if 
the distance between the camera and the 
subject is changed after focusing on the 
subject.
• When the camera lens is at a distance 
beyond the available range from the 
subject, the subject may not be focused 
even if the focus indication lights.
• The available flash range is about 30 cm 
(0.98 feet) to 4.0 m (13.1 feet) (Wide). 
(This is applied when you set the ISO 
sensitivity to [AUTO].)
• When you take pictures at close range in 
macro mode, the resolution of the 
peripheral of the picture may be slightly 
decreased. However, this is not a 
malfunction.
This mode allows you to record motion 
pictures with audio.
1 Select [PICT.MODE].
• Close the menu by pressing the shutter 
button halfway or the [MENU] button 
after finishing the setting.
• You can record smoother motion pictures 
with [30fpsVGA] and [30fpsQVGA].
• You can record motion pictures for 
longer period with [10fpsVGA] and 
[10fpsQVGA] although the picture 
quality is lower.
• Since the file size of [10fpsQVGA] is 
small, it is suitable for e-mails.
• fps (frame per second); This refers to 
the number of frames used in 1 second.
