Auto picture mode gives you a few menu options like resolution, image quality and ISO. The camera still adjusts everything else so you can just point and shoot.
With the shutter half-pressed the autofocus locks, the active AF point bracket will shrink, turn green, now you are ready to shoot.
Pressing the directions on the 4-way controller brings up several shortcut menus. Left takes you to the Flash settings, Up goes to the drive modes, Right are the Focus modes and down are is the Mode Menu which is shown below.
