Here we can see the S1200pj in Easy Auto mode. This is Nikon's version of intelligent or smart auto, which analyzes the scene for not only the optimum exposure, but also for the best fitting scene mode. You have limited camera settings available, just the image size and flash setting (Auto or off) are available.



nikon_s1200pj_rec_auto.jpgAuto mode is actually the same as Program mode on most common digicams. Here the camera still gives you automatic exposure control, however now you have access to various settings like ISO, White Balance, Focus mode, etc. In the photo above, you can see icons for Auto (camera icon), Marco Focus, the battery level indicator, the steady warning (waving hand), etc.





nikon_s1200pj_rec_ready.jpgHalf-Pressing the shutter release allows the camera to lock the exposure and focus. Depending on what AF mode is being used, one or many of the 9 AF points will turn green if AF is successful, and the exposure information the camera chose will be at the bottom.
