Results for auto sharpening, contrast, and 
saturation vary with exposure and the position 
of the subject in the frame. Use a type G or D 
lens for best results. The icons for Picture 
Controls that use auto contrast and saturation 
are displayed in green in the Picture Control 
grid, and lines appear parallel to the axes of the 
grid.
