4. This dial allows you choose what mode you will be shooting in. The "M" represents Manual mode. The green box is automatic mode. The other functions that are represented with letters are usually either shutter priority, meaning you set the shutter speed and the camera will automatically set the aperture, or aperture priority, which is the opposite. The other functions that are represented with pictures are automatic settings for certain types of pictures. There are usually automatic settings for portraits, action shots, and landscapes.
