    full-auto “green zone” is much more
    than automatically adjusting aperture
    and shutter speed
    • Determines a scene-type
      from industry-leading 32
      possible combinations
    • Database of scene types range
      from sunset to a spot-lit person
      on stage
  • Fine-tunes many aspects of the
    camera’s settings
    • Color rendition, white balance
      and more
  • Also detects non-human moving subjects like animals and vehicles
