enhanced further with a simple change in the settings
menu. When Intelligent Scene Recognition (iSCN) and Face
Detection are activated in Auto Mode, the camera goes a
step further, automatically adjusting to scene
conditions and capturing faces naturally. Whether you're

taking pictures at a birthday party or wedding shower,
the intuitive Auto Mode will optimize your camera's

settings:. iSCN has 2 modes: Auto and Advanced. In Auto
Mode, the camera takes a single shot using the optimal
settings. In Advance Mode, the camera takes a photo with
the standard automatic settings and, in difficult
lighting (low light or back light) immediately takes a
second photo with optimized setting so you can chose
which to keep.
Face Detection technology:
Face Detection technology detects up to eight
individual faces and controls flash, focus, exposure,
and white balance to deliver accurate, natural skin
tones with reduced red-eye for beautiful images of

great substitute for the self timer. Just smile once
everyone is ready, and the camera will automatically
capture the shot.

stabilization and High ISO sensitivity helps compensate

take photos indoors or in low light without the need for
a flash. In addition to High Sensitivity Mode (ISO), you
