exposure settings, you just simply point-n-shoot, perfect for beginners.
Auto Picture mode is very close to "Green" mode, it is automatic but it does allow you to choose Image size and quality, ISO, EV Compensation, and movie controls.
Program AE mode is geared more toward the novice user, and offers a wealth of camera settings, like ISO,
White Balance, Sharpness, Saturation, Contrast, Exposure Compensation, etc.
When the shutter is half-pressed and the autofocus locks, the active AF point bracket will
shrink and turn green.
