Easy-to-use Shooting Modes

Panorama Shooting Mode

The Panorama Shooting Mode* makes it easy to create impressive panoramic photos. This mode captures and combines max 3 consecutive shots, that are saved to the memory card as a single panoramic picture.

  • * Use a tripod or monopod for best results. Only the panoramic picture is saved; individual photos are not. Exposure and white balance are set with the first picture and flash is suppressed. Number of recorded pixels are limited to 3 megapixels.

Tracking Auto Focus

Keeps fast moving subjects in the frame and in focus, even when the zoom is fully extended. Great for capturing dynamic close-ups.

Natural Light and with Flash

Can't decide whether it's best to use flash? Choose this mode, press the shutter and automatically capture the same scene twice: once with high sensitivity and natural light, and the second time with Intelligent Flash. Later choose one or keep both!
