Superka: NOTE! This camera, which is supposed to be advanced point-and-shoot, don''t have those stupid modes like SPORT, NIGHT PORTRAIT, etc, which Canon DSLR up to 60D have. Its mode dial, combined with exposure compensation is much better then any Canon DSLR mode dial. What a shame on Canon.
Don't be absurd. Every Pro photographer I know uses auto modes in one mode or the other. Me, I love to use Av mode and keep my aperture consistent to control depth of field, and then use use exposure compensation to bracket or adjust exposure as required by the lighting and subject.
