How to Use Landscape Mode?

First, you need to select the Landscape Mode at the camera Mode Dial. You might found your Dial looks different, but I'm sure you can find the mountain icon ( In red circle) at the Dial :)

So, what does Landscape Mode do? Let's begin. These are the setting for my camera, but it will be about the same as yours as well. Do not worry ^^

Aperture = Auto
Shutter Speed = Auto
Exposure = Not Available
ISO Speed = Auto
Picture Style = Landscape
White Balance = Auto
AF Mode = One Shot
AF Point Selection = Auto
Drive Mode = Single
Metering Mode = Evaluative
Built-in Flash = OFF

Do you remember the chapter "Controlling the Depth of Field"? In Landscape Mode, you can't control the Aperture because it is in Auto. But, the camera is designed to use higher f-number Aperture in order to get both close and distance object in focus.

Landscape Mode also slightly control the colour to capture the trees and sky more vividly. In fact, Landscape Mode will more concentrate on 4 colours which are Red, Yellow, Green and Blue. Therefore, if you shoot a tree, you will get a result as the tree is in vivid green.

While in Auto Mode, you will get colour like this.

By the way, one of my friends told me Landscape Mode will control Contrast as well. Contrast is also increased to give a clearer and more dimensional appearance. Well, I must admit I do not have perfect eyes, perhaps, you can load the pictures to computer and compare the data by using some relevant software ^^
