„ Shooting Modes
AUTO
The camera automatically selects settings.
MANUAL
Manual
Allows you to select settings yourself, such as the exposure compensation, white 
balance, my colors or ISO speed.
Digital Macro
Allows you to shoot when the distance from the lens (at 
maximum wide angle) to the subject is within 3 – 60 cm (1.2 
in. – 2.0 ft.). The subject can be shown larger than in 
standard macro mode because the camera trims the image 
edges and zooms in with the digital zoom.
Color Accent
Use this option to 
have only the color 
specified in the LCD 
monitor remain and to 
transform all others to 
black and white.
Color Swap
Use this option 
to transform a 
color specified 
in the LCD 
monitor into 
another.
Stitch Assist
Allows you to shoot overlapping images that can later be 
merged (stitched) to create one panoramic image on a 
computer.  
SPECIAL
SCENE
 Portrait
Produces a soft effect 
when photographing 
people.
Night 
Snapshot
Allows you to take 
snapshots of 
people against 
twilight or night backgrounds by 
reducing the effects of camera shake 
even without using a tripod.
Kids&Pets
Allows you to capture 
subjects that move 
around, such as 
children and pets, 
without missing photo 
opportunities.
 Indoor
Prevents camera 
shake and 
maintains the 
subject's true color 
when shooting 
under fluorescent or tungsten lighting.
 Foliage
Shoots trees and 
leaves—such as new 
growth, autumn 
leaves or blossoms—
in vivid colors.
Snow
Shoots without a 
blue tinge and 
without making 
people appear 
dark against a 
snowy background.
