The AUTO screen display. This is the "point-n-shoot" mode where the camera sets everything for the user automatically. The only menu options are the image size/quality, selftimer, and LCD/Setup options.

After half-pressing the shutter release the auto focus and exposure is set. The "[   ]" in the center is where the autofocus performs its calculations, and the flash symbol indicates the flash is ready and will fire.

Turning the Mode Dial to the Scene position lets you select one of four pre-programmed exposure modes (Portrait, Landscape, Sports, and Night.)

The menu options for Scene mode include the usual image size/quality, selftimer and setup items as well as the Scene Position sub-menu, which allows you to change the desired scene mode.
