The "Intelligent Auto" shooting mode, is the basic point and shoot mode that allows anyone to pick up the camera and start shooting. The camera makes all of the adjustments, including ISO, white balance and will even put the camera into the correct scene mode or macro mode if needed, for you. This mode also automatically enables the MEGA O.I.S. and face detection, making sure you have clear photos every time.
