The button with the stars will put the camera into Make-Up mode or Vivid Landscape mode. These will not work in Premium Auto Mode.

On the back of the EX-H15 are several more controls which consist of (from top to bottom) a video button that will send the camera into video mode. the switch happens pretty quick and recording starts immediately. To stop shooting video press the button a second time, the camera processes the recording and goes back to still frame mode. Below that are the camera mode button and the playback button. Both do just what their respective names imply and in addition, both will power on the camera as well. Next is the 4way controller which is used to change display settings when you press up and flash settings when you press down.  In playback mode, pressing down will delete an image. In the center is the SET button which opens up the function menu. The SET button is also used for selecting settings when in Menu mode. The MENU button takes you to the record, quality and set-up menus. The last button is the Best Shot button. this gives you the ability to shoot in one of 42 different scene modes.
