Which mode between Superior Auto and Intelligent Auto should I use?

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

When shooting continuous images, it is best to use the Intelligent Auto mode. If you want to achieve higher quality image, it is recommended to use the Superior Auto mode. Recording images in the Superior Auto mode, however, takes longer than in the Intelligent Auto mode because the camera may shoot multiple images and create a composite image which uses more shooting settings.

In the Superior Auto mode, the camera automatically detects various scenes and executes the appropriate steps for each scene to record a higher quality image.

  • In normal scenes, by recognizing the scene and the condition such as the movement of the user, the camera automatically adjusts to the best setting for the scene or the condition to shoot a higher quality image.
  • In low light scenes, the camera continuously shoots up to 6 images with high speed and accurate image processing then combines the images to create one noise-reduced image.
  • In backlit scenes, the camera combines 3 images that were shot continuously at different exposures and minimizes overexposure and underexposure to create a natural finish.
