Basic Photography and Playback
Taking Pictures in M (Scene Recognition) Mode
Holding the Camera
Hold the camera steady with
both hands and brace your
elbows against your sides.
Shaking or unsteady hands
can blur your shots.
To prevent pictures that are
out of focus or too dark (un-
derexposed), keep your fin-
gers and other objects away
from the lens and flash.
To choose the shooting information and guides dis-
played, press the DISP/BACK button.

HD framing Best framing
To use best framing, position the main subject at the
intersection of two lines or align one of the horizontal
lines with the horizon. When HD framing is used, 16:9
aspect ratio guide lines are displayed to make it easy
to frame HD shots. Use focus lock (pg. 33) to focus on
subjects that will not be in the center of the frame in
the final photograph.
Avoiding Blurred Pictures
If the subject is poorly lit, blur-
ring caused by camera shake
can be reduced using the
L DUAL IS MODE option in
the setup menu (pg. 100). In
B mode, blur caused by sub-
ject movement is also reduced (dual IS mode).
Sensitivity is raised when dual IS is in effect. Note that
blurring may still occur depending on the scene. We
recommend that you turn dual IS off when using a
