“Virtual mode” button

The previous Stylus Digital cameras have a “virtual mode” button, where I could select different Scene Modes. How do I access these modes on the Stylus 500?

How are scene modes different than taking movies on a digital camera?

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.
