Choose when to take the shot
Self timers are a good way to make sure you are in the photo. However sometimes you need a little longer than 10 seconds to get the scene just right. Setting the Smile mode lets the camera shoot automatically; when a smile is detected a shot is taken without you having to press the shutter button. Wink Self-Timer fires the shutter on your camera automatically about 2 seconds after it detects a wink. Alternatively, Face Self-Timer will take a photo approximately 2 seconds after the camera detects a new face entering a group shot.
Movie Digest lets you automatically create a movie record of the still photos you take. Each time you take a picture, up to 4 seconds of the scene just before the shot will be recorded as a short movie. All the short movies recorded that day will be saved as a single movie as a record of the day.
