Canon has an Easy mode so anyone can pick up the camera and start shooting without having to worry about any camera settings. The only options available in this mode is turning the flash from auto to off, and using the zoom toggle.



canon_A3300_IS_auto.jpgCanon also gives you their Smart Auto mode, another worry-free shooting mode that takes care of most of the camera's settings for you. Besides the flash, you also have access to image size, quality, face detection and the camera's shooting menu. Here the camera chooses from 32 different pre-defined scenes to determine the best possible settings for the shot at hand, all within the blink of an eye.



canon_A3300_IS_program.jpgProgram mode gives the user the most control. The camera will always choose your shutter speed and aperture to make sure you have a properly exposed image, however you still have access to a variety of other settings like ISO exposure compensation, focus mode, etc.



canon_A3300_IS_rec_ready.jpgHalf pressing the shutter release will display the screen shot above. The auto-focus system will choose a focusing point, and a green rectangle(s) will appear to show you where focus was obtained. If the camera cannot obtain focus the rectangle will not appear. You will also see the shutter speed, aperture, and ISO settings chosen for the shot. The camera symbol with the "waves" coming off of it is a warning icon that camera shake could be possible due to a slower shutter speed.
