Press [Shutter] to capture the photo.
The camera may select different scenes and adjust settings differently, even 
when you aim at the same subject. Scene selection depends on external 
factors, such as camera shake, lighting, and distance to the subject.
If the camera does not recognize an appropriate scene mode, it uses the 
default settings for the Auto mode.
Even if it detects a face, the camera may not select a portrait mode 
depending on the subject’s position or lighting.
Even if you use a tripod, the camera may not detect the tripod mode (
) if 
the subject is moving.
The camera consumes more battery power, because it changes settings often 
to select appropriate scenes.
