Record Modes & Screens


Nikon Coolpix L18


AUTO record mode is the point-n-shoot mode that lets anyone get great pictures with little or no fuss. Most of the information is only shown for a short time, when the camera is turned on or a button has been pushed. All other times the camera only shows the shooting mode icon.

When you half-press the shutter release the autofocus is locked and the exposure is calculated and set. If autofocus was successful the AF bracket turns green, if it fails it is red.
