How does the Scene Optimizer improve photos?

Last Update Date : Feb 27. 2019

The Scene Optimizer goes a step further to automatically enhance the effect and quality of your images.

Using automatic scene optimization

When the camera recognizes a subject or scene, an icon will appear on the screen and the optimized color will be applied automatically.
