having to make complex settings. This mode,
which is the default, is recommended for the
beginning photographer. You can still adjust
some basic settings if you want (for example,
image quality, digital zoom, and macro or
panoramic mode).
This setting is designed for the user who wants
more artistic control, but still prefers the camera
to eliminate some guesswork. Programmed
subject settings (Normal, Sports, Portrait, and
Landscape) tailor the camera's settings to the type
of picture being taken. You can also use the
menus to make your own adjustments to
sensitivity, white balance, and exposure.
This setting is for experienced photographers who
want the greatest degree of control over the
camera's wide array of settings and features. In
addition to changing sensitivity and white
balance, you can use spot metering, adjust the
shutter speed and aperture size, and set the focus
