How to Set Custom Modes on Your NX500 Camera

Custom mode lets you create your own shooting modes by customizing options and saving them. You can save frequently used option settings as a named Custom Mode, and then use it as your own shooting mode customized for the shooting environment. Use custom mode when you capture photos in various environments, you have preferred shooting settings, or you frequently use preset options in certain conditions.
