The "intelligent Auto" shooting mode is the basic point and shoot exposure program that allows anyone to pick up the camera and start snapping pictures. The camera makes all of the necessary adjustments, including ISO, white balance and will even put the camera into the correct scene mode or enable macro focus if needed. This mode also automatically enables the MEGA O.I.S. and face detection systems, helping you produce sharper images in more situations.

Movie mode captures QuickTime video at either 4:3 (640x480 or 320 x 240) or 16:9 (848x480) aspect ratios at 30fps, with audio. The length of capture is limited only by the amount of available memory (max file size of 2GB). Because sound is recorded, the zoom may be preset before recording, but it can not be used during.
