Intelligent Auto (iAuto) takes all of the guess work out of shooting. The camera will take care of all of the settings, including choosing the appropriate scene mode if one is available. This allows you to just point-n-shoot and not worry about the outcome.
Program mode is another automatic shooting mode, which allows you to easily just point-n-shoot, but it also gives a little control over your images. Settings like the ISO and White Balance are yours to control. The camera will not choose a scene mode either, so there will be no scene settings applied to the images.
For specific shooting situations, you may manually choose a scene mode with the camera's Scene shooting mode. This makes sure that you get the mode you want in a difficult situation.
Pressing left on the 4-way controller gives you access to the quick menu which is shown on the right side of the LCD. Once you have selected it, you can scroll up and down to access the different settings. Left and right will then allow you to change them. Some of the settings, such as the WB shown above will give you example windows of how the setting will change the image.
