Select a shooting mode.
Your camera offers three different shooting
modes.
The settings you make in each mode are
retained even after you switch into a different
mode. Many of these settings are retained
after the camera turns off (
 p. 52).
The camera makes most of
the settings automatically.
You manually set the
exposure, white balance, and
various other shooting
parameters.
Use this mode when taking
shots that you want to stitch
into a panorama.

Changing Resolution/
Compression Setting
The camera offers you a choice of three
resolution settings and three compression
settings. Image size increases as you move
from small to medium to large resolution
(
), and image quality
increases as you move from normal to fine
to superfine compression (
).
If you intend to use a shot to create a large
print, you should set the resolution to L
(Large). If you plan to print the shot on a
sticker, mail it over the Internet, or display it
on your computer, or if you wish to fit many
shots onto a single CF card, then you
should set the resolution to S (Small).
