that help you take great pictures at the press of a button. The Underwater Scene Mode is the newest and allows you to shoot underwater with the

subject’s face and focuses on it. 4 of the 17 scene modes come with Scene Assist which offer a selection of easy framing assist options, to help you
compose your pictures with the assistance of framing guides displayed in the monitor. Here is how it works:
