What is the differences between the AUTO MODE: "Allows you to shoot using an optimum aperture and shutter speed that the camera sets" and the P (Program shooting) which :"Allows you to shoot using an aperture and shutter speed that the camera sets" page 18 and 31 of the instruction manual?

Bruno,

On pretty much any camera from any maufacturer, AUTO mode means the camera does everything with regard to settings. All you do is frame and shoot. HOWEVER, in this mode you're going to get what the camera thinks you should.

In "P" you'll have access to most of the settings other than Shutter and Aperture which the camera will set based upon it's metering. You retain control over things like white balance, exposure compensation, flash compensation, etc.

You might try Auto just to get started but try to move to P as soon as you are comfortable and the play with the settings. You may get a lotof garbage at first but as you learn you will be really superior to AUTO mode.

Good luck.

JG
