Program AE mode, is like auto, the camera selects both shutter speed and aperture values automatically. However, now you have access to more advanced camera settings like ISO, White balance, Metering, etc. Icons indicate we are using 10M Superfine image size/quality, Multi-segment metering, Auto flash mode, Center AF, and an SD card is being used for image storage. You can also see indicators for battery level, number of remaining frames, OIS (image stabilization) is enabled as well as the time & date.
