Settings and Menus

The FX150 has five recording modes: intelligent auto mode, program AE, manual exposure mode, scene mode and motion picture mode. With intelligent auto, the camera adjusts all of the settings on its own. Program AE images are recorded using your own settings. Manual exposure subjects are recorded with set aperture and shutter speed. Scene mode allows you to take pictures that match the type of scene being recorded. Motion picture mode is used to record video clips.

For brevity, I will briefly cover each mode and give an overview of the recording options available under each mode. First up is intelligent auto mode.

Recording options under intelligent auto are pretty limited, as this is mostly a newcomer feature that allows you to simply turn the camera on and start snapping photos. You can, however, change the picture size, aspect ratio, adjust burst shooting, change color effects and turn autofocus tracking on or off.

Next up is program AE which has a lot more recording options. From left to right, you can modify or turn on/off the following: picture size, quality, aspect ratio, intelligent ISO, sensitivity, white balance, metering mode, autofocus mode, quick autofocus, burst, intelligent exposure, multi exposure, digital zoom, color effect, picture adjustment, stabilizer, minimum shutter speed, audio recording, autofocus assist lamp and clock settings.

Next up is manual exposure mode.

No need to recite these, as they are all about the same as what was found in program AE.

More ahead as we check out scene and motion picture modes.
