Basic Shooting and Image Playback

This chapter explains how to use the Basic Zone modes on the Mode Dial for best results and how to playback images.

With the Basic Zone modes, all you do is point and shoot and the camera sets everything automatically. Also, to prevent botched pictures due to mistaken operations, shooting settings cannot be changed in the Basic Zone modes. The settings (functions set automatically) which cannot be set by the user are grayed out.

About the Auto Lighting Optimizer

In Basic Zone modes, the Auto Lighting Optimizer will operate to adjust the image automatically to obtain the optimum brightness and contrast. It is also set by default in Creative Zone modes (p.156).
