That's like saying you bought a really expensive yacht and thinks it should take you across the Atlantic without the need for anyone driving it. Just one of the reasons the d7k is as expensive as it is because of control over your photograph. There are so many variables in a photo that it would be difficult for the camera to account for all of them without any kind of intervention. If you really don't want to learn the camera but still want the benefits of the bigger sensor and better low light, then set it to Auto and forget about it, but don't try and compare your photographs with people on this site and expect the same results. You will get better than P&S simply because of the makeup of the camera but nothing to write home about.

Look, you paid $1000-$1400 for a camera, you shouldn't even need to consider how to go about getting around some kind of foolish problem the thing is creating for you. It should just plain work or reasonably so, without having to re-invent the wheel sort to speak. You should be able to shoot in AP just fine with the camera. i've been able to do that with evey camewra I own except for those that had nothing but manual to work with.

For shooting the family and kids Ap or Shutter Priority should work fine.

As for D-lighting, I did turn it off based on the "Fro's" advice... but recently I turned it back on hoping maybe it would help It was off in this shot.

I have a question about Manual mode - my daughter is two and she doesn't really hold still long enough for me to change my settings constantly... I heard someone say that they use auto ISO, does that help cut back on the constant messing that is usually required in Manual mode?
