Basic Photography and Playback
This section describes how to take photographs in 
i (auto) mode, an 
automatic “point-and-shoot” mode in which the majority of settings 
are controlled by the camera in response to shooting conditions, and 
in which the flash will fire automatically if the subject is poorly lit. To 
take photographs with the flash off while leaving the camera in 
control of other settings, rotate the mode dial to 
j to select auto (flash 
off ) mode.
