This mode does give you access to a multitude of Function and Menu options and color effects.The icons on the left here indicate ISO speed is Auto and auto flash.

canon_sd980is_rec_ready.JPGWhen you half-press the shutter you will see which of the nine AF points (green rectangles) were used for the focus lock. You can also see the shutter speed, metering, aperture and ISO values that were selected for by the camera for this shot.





canon_sd980is_rec_4way_menu_anim.gifWhile in shooting mode, the 4-way controller offers you several shortcuts to useful functions. Pressing it up gives you the self-timer options, right shows you the flash options, left the focus options and down changes the amount of information that is shown on the screen. With the new touch screen, any of these functions can be selected by using the 4-way controller to highlight the option you want or you can just touch the option on the screen to select it.
