While in shooting mode, press the menu button, highlight the 3rd tab (indicated by a star), click on select items, choose "IS Mode" by highlighting it and press the "set" button. Press the menu button again to go back 1 screen, scroll down to "Set Default View" and choose "Yes".

Now when you are in shooting mode and you press the menu button, the "My Menu" screen will appear with whatever you selected (in this case IS Mode).


That's great, Thanks :)

Exactly so. That’s precisely how you do it.

Since you can AFAIR have up to 5 items on the “My Menu” list, the stage where you reorder them to put “IS Mode” to the top of the list is necessary too - for maximum speed of access.

Of course nothing helps remind you to undo it when you’ve finished - apart from getting the “tripod” warning light coming up rather a lot if you’ve gone and forgotten - yet again.

Good point. However in my case I still hadn't added any items to My Menu list so IS Mode was the only thing on my list! :)

Interesting. Sounds like: "things that make you go hmmm" :confused:

On my SX 110 IS, I've set the button to manual WB-one press and I can set a manual WB easily.

So, from reading this thread, does anyone else wish their camera had more than one programmable shortcut button? I think I would like four, thank you.

Definitely. The less menu diving the better! :)

I need to bookmark this page for later reference. It will be great to start getting more functionality out of my P&S. I just wish there were more than one shortcut button on the S90, I'm not sure which setting to use primarily.
