Notes & Features: Motion Detection Technology: Active when using Easy Mode and High-ISO Auto, this feature detects motion in the scene for a more intelligent method of automatically selecting the ISO. If Motion Detection technology senses no motion (static subject), it will choose a lower ISO, and if it senses motion (moving subject), it will select a higher ISO for a faster shutter speed.
