The Mode Dial
To select a shooting mode, align the mode icon with the mark next

followed immediately by a second

(AUTO): A simple “point-and-
shoot” mode recommended for first-

B (NATURAL LIGHT): Capture
natural light indoors, under low
light, or where the flash can not
be used (pg. 34).
M (MANUAL): Choose this mode for
manual control over a wide variety of
camera settings (pg. 37).

manually to freeze or blur motion or
control depth of field (pg. 37).

sound (pg. 47).
(Scene Position): Choose a scene
suited to the subject or shooting
conditions and let the camera do the
