[Question] What is the Easy shooting mode?

Turning the mode dial to EASY limits the shooting functions whose settings can be changed and allows you to shoot with easy operations and without having to make any complicated settings. With this mode, first-time users can comfortably use the camera without worrying about the settings. It is also useful when asking someone to take your picture while on vacation.

If the camera detects a face anywhere in the frame, it will focus on the face automatically, and the camera adjust exposure, and white balance.

•  The shooting menu can only be used to set [Picture Quality/Size] and [Date Imprint]. The other shooting menu items are fixed at their default settings, except for [ISO Setting] which is fixed at [Auto] or [Auto-Hi] depending on the flash mode.
•  When you turn the mode dial to EASY, the quantity and order of the items in the setup menu are different from other shooting modes. The contents of the settings are the same as other modes.
•  Flash, macro, and self-timer settings that have been changed in other shooting modes return to their default settings when Easy shooting mode is selected.
•  Macro mode cannot be selected with the ADJ./OK buton in this mode. Instead, when you shoot a subject at close range, the camera automatically switches to Macro mode. The minimum shooting distance and shooting range when using the zoom in Macro mode are shown below.
