Camera Mode Dial
Aperture Priority AE
The 935's automatic exposure mode, the camera will calculate the aperture and shutter speed depending on the current metered exposure, selected ISO sensitivity and exposure compensation.
The camera uses large apertures (F2.6 - F4.8) to create a narrower depth of field (blur the background) and lower image contrast. ISO sensitivity is automatic in this mode.
The camera uses small apertures (F5.0 - F9.0) for maximum depth of field, it also uses lower ISO sensitivities for optimum quality. ISO sensitivity is automatic in this mode.
The camera tries to use the fastest possible shutter speed and higher ISO sensitivities to freeze sport action. ISO sensitivity is automatic in this mode.
|[no light]||Normal Auto focus
If none of the focus mode lights are lit the camera is in normal auto focus mode, focus range is 0.5 m - Infinity (1.6 ft - Infinity) in this mode.
Macro Auto focus
|Infinity focus lock
As the name implies this focus mode simply locks the focus system to focus at Infinity, useful for landscape shots where there is no clear focus subject or night landscape exposures.
|[no light]||Auto flash
In Auto flash mode the camera's flash will fire if light is below a certain level.
Forces the flash to fire, useful for fill-in flash in bright outdoor and backlit situations.
Forces the flash to fire but meters the scene as per 'Flash Off' mode, this allows you to perform a 'slow sync' flash exposure where foreground subjects are frozen by the flash and the background detail is maintained by the length of the exposure.
Rear of camera controls
The rear of the HP 935 is clean and uncluttered with a simple 'flick switch' style on/off button, lever zoom controller, 4-way controller and three buttons associated with LCD playback aligned down the right edge of the LCD monitor.

The 935 differs from many other digital cameras in that it doesn't by default give you a live record view, instead you must press this button to see the live view. The camera's aggressive power saving turns off this record view after 60 seconds of inactivity.
Displays the last image taken or the last image on the SD card. Use the 4-way controller left or right to scroll between images (animated sideways slide-on). The 935's playback mode is 'shooting priority', this means that a touch of the zoom controller, shutter release or video button returns the camera to record mode.
Allows you to mark the image to be shared by print (DPOF) or online (must be first customized via a computer). If the camera isn't already in playback mode pressing this button enters that mode directly.
In record mode press left / right to change exposure compensation (+/-2.0 EV in 0.5 EV steps), press OK to enter the record menu. Use also to navigate menus. In playback mode press left / right to browse images, up / down to jump through images, press OK to enter the playback menu.
