This camera does not have the snow or beach scene modes like many point and shoot cameras do. However, it’s a very simple to compensate for snow and beach. Basically, what’s happening is with the snow or very, very bright sandy beaches, what’s happening is the camera is seeing a tan of light and it darkens down the image a little bit.
So, because now is not supposed to be gray and it’s supposed to be white and the camera doesn’t know this, you need to slightly over expose the image. First, go ahead and make sure that your metering mode is set to evaluative, that’s the up navigation button and go up to evaluative metering, press Set.
Next, we’re outdoors so the white balance should be set to daylight. Go ahead and press the White Balance button. Move over to daylight and press Set. We have plenty of light so we really don’t need any higher ISO than 100, 100 ISO will keep the image as clean as possible without all the grain or image noise.
And basically, it’s very simple just go ahead and press your exposure compensation button right here and turn the dial, this dial right here with your forefinger at the same time. So I’m pressing this and I’m turning the dial to increase my exposure compensation just a little bit 1/3—probably 2/3 it may be even too much so see which one you prefer but 1/3 should be just fine to kind of pick it up just a little bit to get that nice white snow. With the exposure compensation set properly, now you can go ahead and take your picture as you normally would.
Remember, our focusing is set up in the center. Make sure that when you look through the view finder that center focusing point is centered on your subject, press the Shutter button halfway, focus on your subject, recompose the image and then press the Shutter button the rest of the way to take the picture.
