Basic Photography and Playback
Taking Pictures in M (Scene Recognition) Mode
In situations in which camera sounds or lights may
be unwelcome, hold the DISP/BACK button down until
o is displayed (note that silent mode is not available
during movie or voice memo playback).
The camera speaker and AF-assist illuminator/self-
timer lamp turn off and volume (P 95) can not be
adjusted (note that the AF-assist illuminator may still
light when C is selected in SP1/SP2). To restore nor-
mal operation, press the DISP/BACK button until the o
icon is no longer displayed.
Press the shutter button halfway
The lens may make a noise when the camera fo-
cuses; this is normal. In M mode, the cam-
era continuously adjusts focus and searches for
faces, increasing the drain on the battery.
If the camera is able to focus, it will beep twice
and the indicator lamp will glow green.
If the camera is unable to focus, the focus frame
will turn red, s will be displayed, and the
indicator lamp will blink green. Change the
composition or use focus lock (P 37).
