The review seems to suggest that the scene auto mode could be used for all auto shots. Does that make sense? How does the camera "know" what scene to automatically select?

It uses analysis of the image to determine what is being photographed and select an appropriate  scene mode. It is always magical I think with any camera with a smart mode where you point it at a flower and the flower symbol comes up. I think the P7xxx's are at an advantage in that they have an old fashioned auto mode which shoots programmed at defaults and does not do all this analysis which can produce strange results if it thinks a coal bucket is a flower.
