Creative Photography (Scene Modes)
The camera offers a choice of “scene” modes. Choosing a scene 
mode automatically optimizes settings to suit the selected scene, 
making creative photography as simple as selecting a mode, framing 
a picture, and shooting as described on pages 17–21.
❚❚The Mode Dial
The following scenes can be selected with the mode 
dial:

Portrait
Use for portraits with soft, natural-
looking skin tones. If the subject is far 
from the background or a telephoto lens 
is used, background details will be 
softened to lend the composition a 
sense of depth.
l
Landscape
Use for vivid landscape shots in daylight. 
The built-in flash and AF-assist 
illuminator turn off; use of a tripod is 
recommended to prevent blur when 
lighting is poor.
