fully, the subject is automatically focused 
just before recording. In dark places, the 
self-timer indicator will blink and then may

lamp (P63) to allow the camera to focus 
on the subject.

simple mode [

[SELF PORTRAIT] (P46) in scene mode.

pressed. The number of pictures taken at 
one time is fixed to 3.
