The next sections provide details on each of these options. For information about the four other settings on the Mode dial — P (Programmed Auto), S (shutter-priority autoexposure), A (aperture-priority autoexposure), and M (manual exposure), see Chapter 5. Auto mode In this mode, represented by the green camera icon you see in the margin here, the camera selects all settings based on the scene that it detects in front of the lens. Your only job is to lock Auto in focus, using the two-stage autofocus technique I outline at the beginning of the chapter, or by setting the lens to manual mode and using the focus ring on the lens barrel, as explained in Chapter 1.
Via this screen, you can review and adjust critical camera settings. See the upcoming section “Using the Shooting Info Display” for details. ߜ Exposure compensation button: This button activates a feature that enables you to tweak exposure when working in any autoexposure mode. Chapter 5 explains. ߜ Mode dial: With this dial, you set the camera to fully automatic, semiautomatic, or manual photography mode. The little pictographs, or icons, represent the Nikon Digital Vari-Program modes, which are automatic settings geared to specific types of photos: action shots, portraits, landscapes, and so on.

Sometimes, allowing a moving object to blur can actually create a heightened sense of motion — an artistic choice that you can’t make in Sports mode. For more control over shutter speed, try out S mode (shutter-priority autoexposure), explained in Chapter 5. Close Up mode Switching to Close Up mode doesn’t enable you to focus at a closer distance to your subject than normal (as it does on some non-SLR cameras). The close-focusing capabilities of your camera depend entirely on the lens you bought.
