The camera offers a choice of “scene” modes. Choosing a scene mode automatically optimizes settings to suit the selected scene, making creative photography as simple as selecting a mode, framing a picture, and shooting as described in “‘Point-and-Shoot’ Photography (i and j Modes)” (0 “Point-and-Shoot” Modes (i and j)).
The following scenes can be selected with the mode dial:
Use for portraits with soft, natural-looking skin tones. If the subject is far from the background or a telephoto lens is used, background details will be softened to lend the composition a sense of depth.
Fast shutter speeds freeze motion for dynamic sports shots in which the main subject stands out clearly.
The built-in flash and AF-assist illuminator turn off.
n Close up
Use for close-up shots of flowers, insects, and other small objects (a macro lens can be used to focus at very close ranges).
o Night Portrait
Use for a natural balance between the main subject and the background in portraits taken under low light.
Use a tripod to prevent blur caused by camera shake at slow shutter speeds.
