Superior Auto

The camera combines Scene Recognition and high-quality image technology to automatically shoot the images with the optimal settings.
  1. Set the mode dial to (Superior Auto).

  1. Shoot with the shutter button.

The camera shoots burst images when needed and overlays the multiple images. By overlaying the images, the camera records an image with less subject blur and noises.
What is the difference between Superior Auto mode and Intelligent Auto mode?
In Superior Auto mode, the camera shoots burst images based on the recognized scene, then creates a composite of the burst images (Overlay shooting).
The camera automatically corrects the backlight and reduces the noise by overlaying images, so a higher-quality image results than in Intelligent Auto mode.

  • Subjects are moving

  • Subjects are too close to the camera
