Press the shutter release button halfway.
The focus frame on the LCD monitor will light green when the camera 
is in focus.

Press the shutter release button.
The image appears on the LCD monitor for one second (Instant 
Review) and is recorded on the SD Memory Card or in the built-in 
memory. (The green and red lamps on the right of the viewfinder blink 
alternately while the image is being recorded.)
• As there is no focus frame in the viewfinder, be sure to check the 
focusing area on the LCD monitor.
• To switch to the Green mode and let the camera set all the shooting 
functions automatically, press the QUICK button. Selecting the 
Green mode is the easiest way to ensure that pictures come out well.
