To shoot a snapshot

Selecting an Auto Recording Mode


This is the standard Auto recording mode.

 Premium Auto

With Premium Auto recording, the camera automatically 
determines whether you are shooting a subject or scenery, 
and other conditions. Premium Auto recording delivers higher 
image quality than standard Auto recording.

• Some of the settings configured automatically by Premium 

Auto cannot be changed by you.

• Premium Auto recording takes longer to process image data 

after it is shot than Auto recording.

• It also requires more power (and runs down the battery 

quicker) than Auto.
