Using the Stabilizer Feature
The Stabilizer feature is for Photo taking only. This feature is designed to help reduce the blurring effects on photos
caused by slight camera movement. It is important to note that this feature cannot compensate for all movement
and lighting situations and that in many cases may slow the camera’s ability to auto focus.
How does it work? It works according to the luminance of the target object. This function uses special image data
processing to optimise the high sensitivity of CCD sensor (also known as the digital film). High sensitivity allows the
use of faster shutter speeds compared to the default mode, so it may reduce blurring caused by camera movement.
Page: 24

Press the
•	 Stabilizer button located on the top of
the camera to enable/disable stabilizer.

Using Flash Features
By default, this camera is set to automatic flash mode which means that it will determine when to use this feature
or not. However, is some situations, it may be useful to manually select the appropriate flash mode. When taking
pictures in difficult lighting conditions, use the Flash button to select the desired mode. This function cannot
be activated while recording videos or continuous shooting.
To activate Flash:
Tap the onscreen
•	 Flash button to display the popup flash menu and tap desired flash mode icon.
Icon. Item Description
AUTO
The flash fires automatically whenever the camera determines extra lighting is needed.
This is the default mode of the camera.
Red-eye
reduction
The flash fires twice to help reduce the red-eye effect. The first flash strobe is
designed to force the iris of the subject to reduce in size to compensate for the bright
light, thus reducing the reflection (red eye effect) of the Eye retina. The second strobe
is when the photo is taken.
Forced on The flash fires whenever you press the Shutter button regardless of
lighting conditions. This may be useful in some bright backlight situations.
Slow sync
This would be used to capture a dimly lit background while keeping the foreground
(subject) properly lighted. This flash mode forces the camera to use a slower shutter
speed in combination with the flash. The flash fires briefly to light the foreground
(subject) while capturing ambient light to reveal more detail in the background. If
Slow Sync flash is not used, the background may appear black or underexposed.
Forced off
The flash is turned off and will not fire regardless of the lighting situation. In low light
situations, the use of a tripod may be required to reduce photo blurring.
Flash function is only available in shooting still images but not available in Burst
•	
and AEB modes.
Do not charge the flash while pressing the zoom button. Charge the flash after

The table below shows the available scene mode settings.
Icon Item Description
Auto
The simplest and usually safest way to shoot basic photos. Settings are
automatically adjusted by the camera. Each time the camera is Powered
off then on, this mode will be selected by default. This is recommended for
novice photographers.
Video This mode is used to record video clips.
Program
The camera automatically adjusts suitable shooting settings like shutter
speed and aperture values. However, this mode allows for manual
adjustments to EV, Auto White Balance, ISO(gain), Metering, and Color
effects.
Intelligent
Scene
The camera detects the shooting conditions and automatically switches to
the appropriate scene mode.
Portrait
This scene mode will attempt to isolate the subject by opening a wide
aperture to blur the background and providing little depth of field.
The subject will stand out because the background is blurry and the subject
is in focus.
Landscape This feature is used to emphasize wide distant scenic views.
Sunset
This feature enhances the red hue for recording dramatic sunrise or sunset
images.
Backlight
This feature is best used to capture photos with a strong backlight. For
example, this mode will lighten the exposure to make the face of the person
in the foreground to look normal instead of dark while maintaining the clarity
and brightness of the background details.
Kids
This feature forces the camera to select settings that will be optimal for
moving kids. Red eye reduction and skin tone enhancement are also a
benefit of using this mode.
Night Scene
This feature is used to taking photos with night scenery background. Camera
settings will be adjusted to capture brighter and more vivid night shots. For
best results and reduced image blurring, the use of a tripod for this mode is
strongly recommended.
Fireworks
This feature slows shutter speed to capture the full burst of fireworks.
Another interesting use would be to take photos of night traffic. This
will produce artistic head and tail light stretch effects For best results
and reduced image blurring, the use of a tripod for this mode is strongly
recommended.
Snow
This scene mode is best used when you’re shooting against a bright
background, such as snow or sand. This will enable the camera to focus on
the subject instead of the background to determine the proper exposure and
AWB settings for optimal results. If not selected, the subject may be too
dark and the background “washed out”.
Sports
This scene mode will continue to capture images as long as the Shutter
button is pressed down. This is designed to aid for subjects
in constant motion. It should only be used in adequate lighting situations
because the flash will be disabled.
Party
This scene mode will set red-eye flash and narrow other parameters that
best match typical indoor wedding/party conditions.
Candlelight This feature is used to capture warm candle light effects.
Page: 32
29
Night Portrait
This scene mode uses the flash and will leave the shutter open longer to get
more ambient light from the background. This will help reduce typical flash
pictures where the subject does not have a black/dark background. Ideally,
this will produce photos that have more detail in the background. For best
results and reduced image blurring, the use of a tripod for this mode is
strongly recommended.
Soft Skin
This scene mode will set red-eye flash and other camera parameters to
enhance/soften tones that produce smoother younger looking skin as well
ad reduce the appearance of blemishes.
Food
This scene mode is designed to capture pictures of food in vivid colors.
The Camera is set to macro mode focus and other parameters to increase
saturation for enticing food images.
Building
This feature enhances the edges of captured images that make it ideal to
highlight details of buildings.
Text
This feature enhances the black and white contrast normally used when
capturing text images. Typically, normal photos of documents may look grey
in tone. This mode will optimise settings for more color accurate results.
Foliage
This feature boosts the saturation of greens to give a rich color to foliage
and lawns.
Auction
This feature combines up to 4 shots into a single photo and provides 4
patterns to select for usage of auction. It also selects resolution settings
that produce detailed but smaller size photos that are ideal for email
attachments and online auction postings.

composition
Compose the desired background and capture the shot by pressing the
Shutter button . A semi-transparent portion of the photo will
display in the background of the LCD live display. Use this as a guide to
compose the final photo. Press the shutter again to capture the final photo.
Love Portrait
This feature uses face tracking to auto detect faces to capture portraits
photos without the help of others. When two faces or more are detected
in the same focus range, the AF is automatically activated and the camera
starts a visual count down. In a few seconds, the camera automatically
takes a picture. The camera will continue to snap photos as long as the two
or more subjects are in range. This is a great feature to have when no one
is around to assist. .
Self Portrait
Normally, self portraits require the subject to hold the camera at arms length
so that they can push the Shutter button . Often the result
is a too close-up self image that is over exposed and background details
reduced. This mode will not require the Shutter button to be
press while using face detection to track one or more faces in focus range.
Once the camera has made the appropriate adjustments, it will start a visual
countdown In a few seconds, the camera automatically take a picture. The
camera will continue to snap photos as long as the one or more subjects
are in range. This feature is great to compose never before possible self
portraits.
