The AUTO shooting mode turns the L830 into a fully automatic point-n-shoot camera. This simplified mode has limited access to the menu options, in fact, there's only three flash options to choose from.

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 8M Superfine image size/quality, Auto flash mode, Center AF, 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.
