When you select Auto, the camera determines the scene for you and automatically changes to one of these scenes only:

When you're pointing the camera at an object, it auto focuses on the object at close distance.

Night (photo mode only)

When you're in a low-lit environment, the camera enhances brightness in your photos and videos.
