A method of capturing processing digital images of an object, using a hand-supportable digital image capture and processing system having a trigger switch, an imaging window and a field of view (FOV) projected therethrough and onto an area-type image detection array. The method involves automatically detecting an object within the FOV, and generating a first trigger event indicative of automatic object detection within the FOV. In response to the generation of the first trigger event signal, the object targeting illumination subsystem automatically generates and projects a visible targeting illumination beam within the FOV. The human operator aligns the visible targeting illumination beam with the object in the FOV, and then manually actuates the trigger switch to generate a second trigger event signal. In response to the generation of the second trigger event signal, a field of illumination is automatically generated and projected through the imaging window and within the FOV, while the targeting illumination beam is momentarily ceased, and 2D digital images of the object are formed and detected on the area-type image detection array, and one or more of the detected 2-D digital images are captured, buffered and processed, so as to read one or more 1D and/or 2D code symbols graphically represented in the one or more detected 2D digital images.
