Superior Auto (still image)

The camera shoots with automatic scene recognition. This mode takes clear images of dark or backlit scenes.

For low-lit or backlit scenes, if necessary the camera may shoot multiple images and create a composite image, etc., to record higher quality images than in Intelligent Auto mode.
  1. MENU (Camera Settings1) → [Shoot Mode][Superior Auto].
  2. Point the camera to the subject.
    When the camera recognizes a scene, the scene recognition icon appears on the screen. If necessary, (overlay icon) may appear.

  3. Press the SHUTTER/MOVIE button halfway down to focus, and then press the SHUTTER/MOVIE button fully down to take the picture.


  • When the product is used to create composite images, the recording process takes longer than usual.
  • When the (overlay icon) is displayed, be sure not to move the camera before the multiple shots are recorded.
  • The product may not properly recognize a scene under some shooting conditions.
  • When [Quality] is set to [RAW] or [RAW & JPEG], the product cannot create a composite image.
