The S9100's auto mode is the only standard automatic shooting mode. The others, while automatic are all more specific, such as the scene modes. You also have a little more control over this mode than other auto modes, as it acts more like a program mode.
Half-pressing the shutter release allows the camera to lock focus and set the exposure settings for your image. Here you can see the green rectangle that shows the area of focus. Along the bottom you can see the exposure information.
Scene Modes: Portrait, Landscape, Sports, Party/Indoor, Beach, Snow, Sunset, Dusk/Dawn, Close-Up, Food, Museum, Fireworks Show, Black and White copy, Panorama, Pet Portrait, Image Mode
Special Effects: Soft, Nostalgic Sepia, High-Contrast Monochrome, High Key, Low Key, Selective Color
The 4-way controller allows you to search and navigate the menu systems. It also has a rotating dial around it to make your navigation quicker and easier. Pressing a specific direction while in shooting mode takes you to a shortcut for the Flash, Exposure Compensation, Macro mode, and the self-timer.
