Record Modes & Screens
AUTO record mode is the point-n-shoot mode that lets anyone get great pictures with
little or no fuss. The "6M*" icon indicates the image resolution is 6-megapixels at Fine
quality and there's 616 pictures remaining at the current image resolution. "ISO" indicates we
are using the ISO Auto setting, and the "VR" shows that Vibration Reduction is enabled. The
zoom lens gauge is shown for a few moments whenever the focal length is changed (not shown

framing guides to help you properly position your subject for the desired effect.
Nikon macro tip #1 - a lot of people never read their user manuals and don't know the
"secret of the sweet spot" - in macro mode run your zoom in and out until you see the
macro flower icon turn green (or yellow on some Coolpix cameras). This is the setting
that allows you to shoot the closest possible shots. And by all means, use a tripod
and the self-timer for the sharpest possible shots.
