Here you can see SR Auto mode. This is a fully automatic exposure program that not only selects the proper exposure settings (Aperture and Shutter speed values), but also analyzes the subject being framed, then chooses from 6 predefined Scenes (Portrait, Night, Landscape, Macro, Night Portrait, Backlit Portrait) to adjust camera settings to help you produce the best possible photos. This is all accomplished within mere seconds.


fuji_s2550_rec_auto.jpgNext we have the normal Auto mode. This is a simple point-n-shoot exposure program that will allow you to concentrate on your subject more than the camera itself. Here, the camera will choose all of the necessary settings for Aperture, Shutter speed, White balance, ISO, Metering, etc.


fuji_s2550_rec_program.jpgProgram mode is much like Auto, where the camera still selects the aperture and shutter speed for you, however now you have access to more advanced exposure controls, such as metering, focus mode, white balance, ISO, exposure compensation, etc. You can also use Program Shift, which allows you to alter the shutter speed and aperture values that will be used for the shot.


fuji_s2550_rec_shutter.jpgShutter priority mode lets you select the desired shutter speed, and the camera will choose the appropriate aperture setting. Select a fast shutter speed to freeze action, or a slow shutter speed to show movement (flowing water, etc.). This camera also offers an Aperture priority mode (not shown), which is just the opposite of the above.


fuji_s2550_rec_manual.jpgIn Manual mode, you choose all of the exposure settings. At the bottom right the camera will display an exposure scale, which will help you dial in the exposure.


fuji_s2550_rec_guide.jpgWhen you rotate the Mode dial, the camera will display this guide for each setting, which gives you a brief description of each mode's intended purpose.
