When the shutter is half-pressed and the auto focus is achieved, the AF target brackets in the center turn green (red if AF fails) and a focus confirmation "green dot" is displayed.

One of the advanced exposure modes is Shutter-speed priority which allows you to select the desired shutter speed and the camera matches the proper aperture. Fast shutter speeds allow you to "freeze" rapid moving subjects or "blur" them with a slower shutter speed.

The Aperture priority mode is similar, it allows you to select a specific aperture value to control depth of field (range of focus). A small aperture number gives you a shallower depth of field to put the background out of focus.

In Manual exposure mode you select both the shutter speed and aperture - you must also select the right combination to get the proper exposure level. An on-screen meter will display the exposure value as you change the settings.

Exposure compensation allows you to override the metering system, useful in strong backlight conditions.
