The AUTO shooting mode turns the L77 into a fully automatic point-n-shoot camera. This simplified mode has limited access to the menu options, in fact, there's only two flash options to choose from; red-eye reduction or flash off.

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 7M Superfine image size/quality, Auto flash mode, Multi metering, and an SD card is being used for image storage. You can also see indicators for battery level, zoom position as well as the time & date.
