HTP, ALO & Auto/Basic

and of course, I forgot to mention Highlight Tone Priority, which should also help.

But can you turn on Highlight Tone Priority for auto or the Basic Zone?

Can one turn off ALO in auto or Basic Zone, per earlier suggestions?

I don't think so (?).  HTP creates a D+ plus by the ISO in Creative (PASM) mode, I don't see it in Basic mode.  The manual says ALO is automatic in auto and the Basic zone.

Of course, one can go to P and treat it like auto.  However, then you give up all of the intelligent auto scene recognition functions, and are left with the camera making greatly dumbed down choices, in order to gain more control.  Which relates to why Canon says it disables the advanced controls for auto and Basic, as they are good way to get in trouble for people who don't know how to use them...
