Question :
What is the Hand-Held Starlight mode?

Answer:
Hand-Held Starlight mode enables you to take still pictures with less camera shake or noise without having to use a tripod.

If you set the camera to Hand-Held Starlight ( Hand-Held Starlight ) in shooting mode and then press the shutter button, the camera automatically takes four pictures in succession at high-speed.

The pictures are then combined into one picture. Even if you shoot in a low-light situation, you will have clearer pictures with less noise than you would take in the Night Scene mode.

You can also use the internal flash for shooting a clear picture of both a foreground subject and an illuminated background.
