What does " IF " stand for ??

I took the camera out over the weekend . Haven't use it for a while , I looked it up in the manual - found out what "IF" button does but nowhere that it mentions what "IF" stand for ???

I'm not 100% sure, but I think that the "IF" button does that same thing as the green button on DSLRs.

IF button

It stands for "interactive function".

In Hyper Manual exposure mode you press it to give you a metered exposure. With my Z1 you can set a custom funtion telling the camera to adjust the aperture or the shutter speed, or to adjust both according to a "program line".

Thanks guys.

I knew "F" stand for "function" . My closest guess of "I" is "internal " haha .

Yep ! They use it in Hyper Manual ( pp 45 -48 )
