5N - couple of simple questions
Feb 23, 2012

Down on the control wheel (page 41 in manual) has an image for exposure compensation and also what looks like an image to indicate auto-focus area. However it only selects exposure compensation. I also can't find any reference to what this other icon/image is supposed to represent in the manual.

The other thing that puzzles me is that macro mode is only selectable in one of the scene modes. I thought scene modes were just jpg specific modes and macro was a mode required because of some focus changing mechanism allowing a lens to focus closer than usual. I'm confused over how macro is specific to jpg.

Lastly has anyone found a way to switch off the menu beeps but leave on the focus acquired beep?

Thanks!
Rich.
