iAuto is the camera's fully automatic shooting mode. This allows you to just point-n-shoot, leaving all of the exposure work to the camera. The camera will also pick the best scene mode for the current situation, if one is appropriate. Pressing the INFO button lets you change the amount of information on the LCD screen.

Program is another automatic shooting mode that leaves the photographer to handle a set of the controls. The camera is still in charge of the exposure settings, but ISO, WB and some of the other settings are available for change.

Manual mode gives you full control over all of the camera settings. All of the exposure settings are yours to control, including the focus, thanks to the hybrid command dial around the lens. It works to change camera settings or control the zoom and focus if you set it to.
