"Auto modes" refers to automatic "point-and-shoot" modes in which the majority of
settings are controlled by the camera in response to shooting conditions. Auto modes
are ideal for first-time users of digital cameras.
Choose auto mode for "point-and-shoot" photography under a wide range of shooting conditions. The flash fires automatically as required when the subject is dark or back lit.
Auto (Flash Off)
Choose this mode where use of a flash is prohibited or to capture natural lighting under low light.
