Outdoor is the one with mountain picture on the dial, if you;re shooting landscape outdoor. If you're shooting potrait outdoor then use the portrait mode on the dial. If you're shooting moving subject outdoor, turn to to the picture of ppl running on the dial. Basically all the modes on the dial can be used outdoor depending on the time of the day and subject and background that you want.
