My polaroid iS2132 won't change settings when I turn the mode dial/Can't set the intelligent scene mode.
You're supposed to be able to set the scene mode to "sunset", "portrait" etc etc. It's supposed to have 27 different settings! However, when I turn the mode dial on the top of the camera, it doesn't change the icon in the very top left of the display screen like the manual says it's supposed to. When you have it turned to the intelligent scene mode, you're supposed to be able to press the menu button and you can change the scene mode. But when I press the menu button, it only has the basic menu options, not the scene mode it shows in the manual.
When I'm turning the dial, I can see the quality on the display screen change slightly, so I know it's doing something.
I had a Kodak years ago with the scene mode features, and loved it. I took great photos with it. It bit the dust, and I've been using cheap cameras before this one, so I REALLY want to use this feature. I've contacted Polaroid twice through email and have not yet received a reply.

Re: My polaroid iS2132 won't change settings when I turn...
When you put the Mode dail to the SCN mode, It will enter the last used Scene mode. THEN press the MENU button to select other scene mode. Don't turn any dail. Use the navigation controls left and right from the OK button, to move through the section. Press OK button to save and activate the selected scene mode. Success

What kind of picture do you want to take? What do you want that picture to say to the viewer?
There are a lot of different settings because there are a lot of different types of pictures. You don't want the same settings for a landscape picture as for a portrait picture. You probably wouldn't want the same settings for a portrait of a young girl as for a portrait of her grandfather.
If you're not comfortable choosing the settings yourself, set the camera to the appropriate scene mode. For taking pictures of people use the Portrait mode, for taking pictures of where you are on vacation use the Landscape mode, and so on.
If you want to learn more, your local library probably has some introductory photography books that tell you how the various settings such as aperture and shutter speed affect your pictures.
That depends on what you're taking a picture of. The various scene modes are designed for different types of pictures---portraits, landscapes, etc. There is no one setting that is best for all pictures.
The best settings depend on what you're taking a picture of, and on what you want that picture to say to your audience. The best setting for a mountain landscape is usually not the best setting for a portrait. For the same mountain landscape, you'd probably want different settings for a daytime picture than for a sunset picture. For a portrait, you might want different settings for a man than for a woman, or for a child than for an adult. You might want to bring out the fun-loving nature of a child, or show the dignity of age in the child's grandparent.
If you're just taking snapshots, leave the camera on AUTO or an appropriate scene mode. Otherwise, go to your local library and browse through the introductory photography books. There's so much more than can be covered in a single post, or even a single web page.
Most important, practice, practice, PRACTICE. Take pictures with different settings, then look at them on the computer and try to see what difference the settings made. Those pictures won't cost you anything, and you can delete them afterwards.
If you have any specific situations in mind, with the subject, lighting conditions, and intended message, please feel free to reply to this post and give the details.
No, you cannot download these modes. However, all these modes did was set your camera's shutter, aperture, ISO, etc. for you . You can certainly do the setting yourself either by experimenting with different settings or going online and using Google to learn how to shoot these various scenes.
The scene modes only apply to stills, not movies. They're intended to set the camera appropriately for different things. Portrait mode for portraits, landscape mode for landscapes, etc. Experienced photographers don't use the same settings for shooting a landscape as they do for portraits: these modes attempt to mimic some of that.
Personally, I feel they don't always do the right thing, and thus prefer a camera that leaves me in control.
go under scenes on your camera
&& there should be a list saying in exact oreder
you have selected video
so whe you press the pic button it starts to record right?
well go under scene && click on auto
The shooting modes are described as follows:
AUTO (Factory default setting)
Auto mode is used for regular photography. The camera automatically makes the settings for natural color balance. Other functions, such as the flash mode and metering, can be adjusted manually.
Portrait mode is suitable for taking a portrait-style picture of a person. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions.
Night scene mode is suitable for shooting pictures in the evening or at night. The camera sets a slower shutter speed than is used in normal shooting. If you take a picture of a street at night in any other mode, the lack of brightness will result in a dark picture with only dots of light showing. In this mode, the true appearance of the street is captured. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. If you use the flash, you can take pictures of both your subject and the night background.
Scene mode enables you to select one of the following scene shooting modes available in the menu.
Landscape + Scene shooting
Landscape + Scene shooting is suitable for taking pictures of landscapes and other outdoor scenes. This mode produces clear, sharp pictures with excellent detail, making it ideal for shooting natural scenery.
Landscape + Portrait shooting
Landscape + Portrait shooting is suitable for taking photos of both your subject and the background. The picture is taken with the background as well as the subject in the foreground in focus. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting settings
Quicktime Movie mode lets you record movies. The focus and zoom are locked. If the distance to the subject changes, the focus may be compromised.
Landscape mode is suitable for taking pictures of landscapes and other outdoor scenes. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions.
Self-portrait mode enables you to take a picture of yourself while holding the camera. Point the lens towards yourself, and the focus will be locked on you. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. The zoom is fixed in the wide position and cannot be changed.
Enables you to make settings manually and register them in the mode dial's mode so you can call up your own shooting mode whenever you want.
Program shooting (P)
Program shooting allows you to shoot using an aperture and shutter speed that the camera sets. You can set the flash, white balance, or other functions manually.
Aperture priority shooting (A)
Aperture priority shooting allows you to set the aperture manually. The camera sets the shutter speed automatically. By decreasing the aperture value (F-number), the camera will focus within a smaller range, producing a picture with a blurred background. Increasing the value will let the camera focus over a wider range in the forward and backward directions, resulting in a picture in which
The SCENE Modes allow you to rapidly and conveniently enable complex camera settings required in frequently encountered situations automatically. Such factors as ISO, f-stop, shutter speed, exposure compensation, flash mode and white balance are applied for optimum results in each of the ten SCENE Modes. The SCENE Modes in the C-5500 are:
Landscape + Portrait
Beach & Snow
Available Light Portrait
Landscape + Portrait
Beach & Snow
Self Portrait + Self Timer
Under Water Wide
