Shown here is "green" point-n-shoot mode. The menu settings are locked out completely, (can access camera settings menu) and the 4-way pad shortcuts are scaled back. Face detection is ON and you are shown the number of remaining pictures (1483), the time, and the battery level.



pentax_WG-1_autopic_mode.jpgAuto picture mode gives you a few menu options like resolution, image quality, and ISO. The WG-1 will still select all other settings so you can just point and shoot.

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