    •	 : Select an ISO value. This controls camera light sensitivity. Low values are for 
    stationary or brightly lit objects. Higher values are for fast-moving or poorly lit objects. 
    However, higher ISO settings can result in noise in photos.
    If the shutter speed is set manually, you cannot set the ISO setting to Auto.
    •	 : Adjust the shutter speed. A slow shutter speed allows more light in, so the photo 
    becomes brighter. This is ideal for photos of scenery or pictures taken at night. A fast 
    shutter speed allows less light in. This is ideal for taking photos of fast-moving subjects.
    •	 : Change the exposure value. This determines how much light the camera’s sensor 
    receives. For low-light situations, use a higher exposure.
    If the shutter speed is set manually, you cannot change the exposure value. The 
    exposure value will change and be displayed based on the shutter speed setting.
