Record Screens & Menus

iAuto is the camera's fully automatic shooting mode, allowing you to point-n-shoot and not worry about anything else. To assure that you get the best image possible, the camera not only sets all of the standard settings for you, it also chooses the best scene mode for your current shooting information.

Program mode is another automatic shooting mode that gives more control to the user. The camera takes care of the shutter and aperture settings, but allows you to change any of the other. This opens up some creative options while still letting the camera adjust for the correct exposure.

Manual shooting mode, along with Aperture Priority and Shutter Priority modes, give the majority or all of the control to the user. Here you get the most control for the most creative freedom.

For specific or tough shooting situations, the camera offers several scene shooting modes. These modes were designed for specific situations in which they will help capture the best possible shot. This mode allows you to choose a specific scene mode, since the iAuto mode isn't always perfect.

Art Filters: Expressive, Retro, Old Days, High Key, Low Key, Sepia, Monochrome, Dynamic Monochrome, Rough Monochrome, Silky Monochrome, Impressive Art, High Dynamic, Cross Process, Toy Effect, Toy Pop, Bleach Bypass, Miniature Effect, Soft Focus, Fantasy, Star Filter, One Point Color, Sunshine.

Shooting with the LCD screen and pressing the Q. Menu button allows you to choose and change many of the camera's shooting settings quickly. This saves you a lot of time from browsing through the camera's shooting menu when you should be shooting.

The 4-way controller also features shortcuts to some of the more popular shooting settings, saving you some time. The Flash Mode, Drive Mode, Focus Mode and Exposure Compensation settings can be adjusted with just one touch of the 4-way controller. Inside the 4-way controller is the Menu/Set button. It allows you to access the camera menus and make your selections.

4K photo modes give you the ability to shoot 8M still images at 30fps bursts. This is done by recording 4K video with special settings that record much sharper frames than normal video. This allows you to capture a still from the video at 8-Megapixels. At 30fps, you will never miss that perfect action shot.
