Here's a live screen showing the AUTO record mode. Icons across the top indicate the flash is in Auto mode, 8.0MP image size, 361 pictures remaining. In the lower right the camera icon indicates it is in the auto mode.

When you half-press the shutter to achieve the focus and exposure lock, the AF target marks will turn green and show what area it is focusing on.

Here you can see PASM record mode. It allows more control over the exposure process. Icons indicate Auto flash mode, 8.0MP image size, 361 pictures remaining, optional SD card is being used, Program mode, exposure compensation (-0.3), and the ISO is set to 800. To change from Program to Manual mode press up or down on the 4-way controller.

Manual mode is just like Program, but allows you to set the desired aperture values and shutter speed. The "-5.3" is the exposure indicator. You want to get it as close to 0.0 as possible. Again, the 4-way controller is used to change these settings.
