Sony to Canon S3 convert- harsh lesson

In midst of a day of shooting on Mt. Rainier, the dial on my S3 was inadvertently switched from P to Auto. I noticed after taking quite a few pictures and changed it back.

Much to my dismay, I found that the pics taken in Auto mode are only 640x480, while the pics from P mode are 2816x2112. Apparently, the S3 uses separate resolution settings for these modes, something I've never seen on any of the four Sony P&S digital cameras I've had, or my wife's 20D.

I've run through all the modes now and set them all to large, fine.

Check your settings!
