Taking Photos in PSA, and M Modes
P
SA, and M modes offer varying degrees of control over shutter
speed and aperture. Choose a mode and adjust settings accord-
ing to your creative intent.
❚❚ P Programmed Auto
In this mode, the camera automatically adjusts shutter speed
and aperture for optimal exposure in most situations. This mode
is recommended for snapshots and other situations in which
you want to leave the camera in charge of shutter speed and
aperture.

Choosing a Combination of Shutter Speed and Aperture
Although the shutter speed and aperture
chosen by the camera will produce optimal
results, you can also choose from other com-
binations that will produce the same expo-
sure (“flexible program”).  Press 
X for large
apertures (low f-numbers) that blur back-
ground details or fast shutter speeds that
“freeze” motion, 
W for small apertures (high
f-numbers) that increase depth of field or
slow shutter speeds that blur motion. 
U is
displayed while flexible program is in effect.

Restoring Default Shutter Speed and Aperture Settings
To restore default shutter speed and aperture settings, press 
X or W
until 
U is no longer displayed or turn the camera off.  The default shut-
ter speed and aperture is automatically restored when the camera
enters standby mode.
