When you half press the shutter, the focus and exposure is set. The AF point will turn green and fall over the intended area of focus. You can also see the ISO, aperture, and shutter speed values as well as the flash is charged and ready to fire and the mechanical Anti-shake system is enabled.

Casio has added 3 auto shutter modes to several of their new model cameras. These modes allow the camera to automatically take pictures at specific times without you having to press the shutter release. First, Detect Blur mode will determine when the camera and the subject are still so that there will be no blurring or camera shake. Second, Panning mode will take a picture as you follow your subject. The camera will wait until the subject is in focus no matter how blurred the background is. Third, Detect Smile mode will automatically take a picture when the camera determines that the subject or subjects are smiling, whether you are ready or not, making sure you never miss a smile.
