Solution / Answer: Using full auto mode PowerShot SD550

Shooting in Auto Mode

In this mode, all you have to do is press the shutter button and let the camera do everything else.

1. Press the power button.

The start-up sound will play and the startup image will display in the LCD monitor.

  • Pressing the power button again turns the power off.
  • To switch to the setting that mutes all sounds (except for the warning sound), press and hold the <DISP.> button while pressing the power button.
2. Turn the mode dial to (Auto).

3. Aim the camera at the subject.

4. Focus and shoot.
  1. Press the shutter button halfway to focus.
    - When the camera focuses, the camera beeps twice and the indicator lights green.
    - If the subject is difficult to focus on, the lower indicator beside the viewfinder will blink yellow and the beep will play one time.
  2. Press the shutter button fully to shoot.
    The shutter sound will play and the image will record. The indicator will blink green while the image is recorded to the memory card.
    - The picture appears for two seconds on the LCD monitor*.

* With the Review function, you can change the length of time images show on the LCD monitor after shooting, or set it so they do not show at all.
