"Program" record mode is also automatic, but now you have access to more advanced controls over the exposure process. This includes ISO sensitivity, White balance, focus mode, etc. Here you can see icons for the exposure mode being used (P for Program), flash is Off, number of images remaining (1971), aperture setting (f/3.5), shutter speed (1/320), exposure compensation (0.0), flash output compensation (0.0), and the ISO setting (400).The camera also features Manual, Shutter and Aperture Priority, Auto and several scene shooting modes.
When you half-press the shutter release the autofocus is locked and the exposure is calculated and set. If autofocus was successful the AF marks will turn green, if it fails they turn red and blink.
