Nikon Coolpix L18 Review
Record Modes & Screens
AUTO record mode is the point-n-shoot mode that lets anyone get great pictures with
little or no fuss. Most of the information is only shown for a short time, when the camera is turned on or a button has been pushed. All other times the camera only shows the shooting mode icon.
When you half-press the shutter release the autofocus is locked and the exposure is
calculated and set. If autofocus was successful the AF bracket turns green, if it fails
it is red.

Image mode - 8M* High, 8M Normal, 5M Normal, 3M Normal, PC, TV, 16:9
