The final advanced setting in Auto Mode is Recording Pixels.

What are Pixels?

Pixels are dots of color. There are millions of dots of color in a digital photo you take.

Some photos you will want to print big, some small. Some you will only want to send through email to your friends.

By setting how many pixels your camera records in your photos, you can make good decisions about printing your photos.

slide41
Advanced Control Settings:Multi-function button plus Function button

So, why not shot all of my pictures to record as many pixels possible?

Setting the Pixels your camera records will also determine how much space your picture will use on the camera memory card.

The higher the Pixels you capture, the fewer the photos that will fit on your camera memory card.

Let’s set up the camera to Record the Pixels.
