This is the mode for when you want to take a picture and not think about a thing. In this mode the camera does everything for you.
AUTO NO FLASH
- This setting still chooses everything for you but won’t pop up the flash. This is good for places where flash isn’t allowed. However, beware of blurry photos.
In this mode the camera tries to pick an open aperture to throw the background out of focus. It also softens the skin tones in the photo.
- This mode chooses a closed(ish) aperture to maximize depth of field. It is intended for use in daylight. A tripod should be used in low light.
Keeps photos colorful and vivid and skin tones soft. This mode also tries to choose a fast enough shutter speed to keep children in focus. (Not available on Canon.)
This mode switches off the flash and the camera chooses fast shutter speeds to help freeze action.
This mode helps you take close-up photos. Nikon chooses a small aperture; Canon a wide one. A tripod is recommended.
NIGHT PORTRAIT MODE
This setting combines the on-camera flash and a slow shutter speed to make use of the available light as well as light up the photo with flash.
