Record Screens & Menus

Auto shooting mode makes the camera as easy to use as possible, selecting all of the camera settings and scene mode for you. This allows anyone to pick up the camera and start shooting. Full 1080p HD video capabilities are also available and ready in this mode. All you have to do is press the video record button to start recording.

Program mode is still an automatic shooting mode, but it does give the photographer a little bit of control with most of the shooting settings. Here you can see on the screen that the ISO speed can be adjusted using the lens ring on the front.

When the camera is focused and ready, the area of focus will show in the green box as above. ISO, shutter speed and aperture are also shown on the bottom. If you are in Auto mode (above) the top right will also show your scene mode if one is selected.

Scene Modes: Movie Digest, Portrait, Landscape, Kids&Pets, Smart Shutter, High-Speed Burst HQ, Handheld NightScene, Beach, Underwater, Foliage, Snow, Fireworks, Stitch Assist

There is also a list of special effect scene modes that include in-camera HDR, Nostalgic, Fish-Eye Effect, Miniature Effect, Toy Camera Effect, MonoChrome, Super Vivid, Poster Effect, Color Accent, Color Swap

The 4-way controller built into the S100 works as a shortcut for the Exposure Compensation, Flash, Macro Focus and Display settings. Pressing in the middle selects a setting or opens the Func. Menu. Around the controller is a dial for quickly making your selections and adjusting your shooting settings.
