The Auto, Portrait, Landscape and Night Scene modes do not let you change camera settings, these are all basically point-n-shoot, automatic modes. The Manual mode gives the user the ability to change: EV compensation, flash brightness, white balance, ISO sensitivity, metering mode, sharpness and manually focus.
Most of these features are shown in the following screen captures with the exception of.
balance settings: Automatic, Sunny, Cloudy, Flourescent (daylight), Flourescent
(warm white), Flourescent (cool white) and Incandescent.
Image Sharpness can be selected as "0" (default), "+" emphasizes outlines or "-"
which softens the outlines.
After half-pressing the shutter, the camera sets the exposure, white balance and
focus. You are then presented with this screen that indicates the selected shutter
speed and aperture value.
When operating in the Manual Record mode you are given the option to save or
discard the picture you just captured with the Preview feature.
The menu options across the bottom of the screen allow you to access and change the following options:
EV: Exposure Compensation is adjustable from -1.5 to +1.5 in 0.3 increments
Flash output intensity is -0.6 to +0.6 in 0.3 increments
The ISO speed equivalent is adjustable between 200, 400 and 800. You can gain the
ability to shot non-flash pictures in lower light conditions by using a higher ISO
value but at the price of reduced image quality.
Exposure metering is Multi by default which uses automatic scene recognition to
analyze the subject and select the optimum exposure. It can be changed to Spot
for highly backlit or contrasty subjects or Averaged which performs well
for scenic images.
In movie mode the screen display indicates the amount of time you can
record depending on how much space is left on the memory card ... not much left
on this card huh ?
