I am borrowing my brothers ixus`z50 camera to take some images but i am not sure what the following symbols mean.

one that looks like an eye
one that looks like lightning
one that looks like lighning in a circle
one that looks like a man in a square with a light behind him

I am assuming the last one is something to do with the flash

the above are all images that appear when selecting from a menu.

HELP would be greatly aprreciated :rolleyes:

My guesses based on other cameras are:
Eye - Red eye reduction
Lightning - Flash
Lightning in a circle - No flash (circle with a slash?)
Man in a square - backlight mode

The eye is probably anti-red-eye enabled for flash pictures.
The Lightning means the flash is enabled.
Lightning in a circle means the flash is disabled.
The man in a square is a "scene mode" probably for "daylight portrait".

Hope this helps.

This is probably flash slow sync...
