Restoring default settings

For the iAuto and SCN modes, the camera automatically restores the factory default settings for critical shooting options as soon as you choose a different shooting mode or turn off the camera. You can restore the defaults for other modes by setting the Mode dial to P, A, S, or M and then visiting Shooting Menu 1. Select Custom Reset, press OK, and then select Reset, as shown in Figure 1-38. Through this option, you can restore most — but not all — of the default picture-taking settings.

If you want to return all settings to their factory defaults, you need to go through each menu item individually. A chart in the back of the camera manual lists the default setting for each option.
