Scene Mode: PASM or Full AUTO

Recommended Posts

If you can access P or A or S or M through the dials, why would one want a PASM Scene Mode? And what is the difference between the PASM or Full AUTO Scene Mode menu options anyway?

To be able to access P, A, S and M you select the "PASM" Scene Mode, it just tells the camera that you will control exposure by using the dials. All other menu option are available.

In "Full Auto" mode you have (at least) the following restrictions:

- AF mode is set to Multi-Point

- aperture/speed dials have no influence

- only Auto ISO

- only automatic white balance


I think it is just a little bit misleading calling "PASM" as "scene mode". it could be labelled as "Scene mode: off"
