iAuto is a fully automatic shooting mode that puts all of the control on the camera, allowing the user to just worry about composing their image. Along with the common shooting settings; the camera will also choose the correct scene mode, if one is appropriate for the shooting situation. iAuto+ takes things one step further and will also incorporate multi-image shooting when necessary to get the best overall image for each situation.





Program shooting mode is another automatic shooting mode that gives some of the control to the photographer. While the camera handles the aperture and shutter settings, everything else can be controlled by the user. Settings like WB and metering can give some creative control while still getting a correct exposure every time. Sony's Program mode even allows you to adjust the aperture or shutter speed for more control, while the other setting adjusts itself to complete the exposure, much like an Aperture Priority or Shutter Priority mode.

Manual mode, along with Aperture Priority and Shutter Priority give the user total control over the shooting settings. This also gives the photographer total creative control over the captured image. Scene modes are not accessible here, but some of the other creative shooting modes, like HDR and DRO, are available.
