There is no need to focus manually with the 35 mm camera, as there is an autofocus system. Here you have several modes to choose from. In Spot AF mode, the system focuses on a specific point. In Area AF, the focus zone is much larger. In Target AF mode, the subject is tracked by the sensors and the lens focuses accordingly.
Taking pictures is made easier by the built-in exposure meter. This is designed for an ISO range of 25 to 3200. The film speed is read out via the DX code. If this code is missing on the cartridge, ISO 100 is set. The exposure settings are automatically controlled and adjusted by the electronics. There is only an exposure compensation of +1.5 stops.
A flash is built in for low light images. Up to 4.6 meters is the specified range at a sensitivity of ISO 100 in wide-angle. The flash can also be turned off if desired. There is also a fill-in flash that fires with every picture, and a mode for portraits at night. The flash’s auto mode is supposed to automatically prevent red-eye in photos.
The camera comes with a thread for a tripod on the bottom. A self-timer is also installed. This has a lead time of ten seconds.
