While shooting with the EVF, which shows all of the same screens that you will see below, the LCD screen will show you a couple sets of information to make your photography easier. The first screen shows all of the camera's current shooting settings. They can all be changed by first pressing the OK button on the back or just by touching the LCD screen. The second screen is the camera's electronic level.

For those looking to point-n-shoot, the iAuto shooting mode allows for just that. In this mode, the camera will take care of all of the shooting settings for you. The camera will even choose the correct scene mode for your current shooting situation. This allows the best possible image with the least amount of effort by the photographer.

Program mode is another automatic shooting mode that gives the photographer more control over the images. The camera still takes care of the shutter speed and aperture for you, but all of the other controls are at your fingertips. This allows for creative freedom while still getting a correct exposure.

Manual mode gives complete control to the photographer. This is the ultimate in creative freedom, and really shows what the camera is capable of. There are also aperture and shutter priority modes for those who are learning to control exposure.

The shooting mode above allows you to capture multiple images that are combined into one of the preset templates loaded on the camera.
