This is the "green" point-n-shoot mode. In this mode you are severely limited in making any changes, the menu settings are locked out completely and the 4-way control options are scaled back. Face detection is ON and you are shown the number of remaining pictures (1338), the time and the battery level.




pentax_w90_rec_auto.jpgAuto picture mode gives you a few menu options like resolution, image quality and ISO. The camera still adjusts everything else so you can just point and shoot.

Program mode gives you full access to all the menu options.
