I have an SX40, and the settings I like to use in P mode are these:

In 'My colors', go to 'Custom color,' and set saturation +1, Sharpness +1, Contrast +1, skin tone 'llighter'. That makes wonderful pictures with good pop.

On really sunny days I also back exposure off -1/3 with the exposure compensation to avoid blowing the highlights. For cloudy or dull days, or inside, I set it back to no compensation. Auto ISO of course. This has worked really well for me.

Hope that helps you...

I use the same settings as Dale, but in addition, I set the shortcut button for w/b. Auto w/b is usually good, but sometimes it misses, or you prefer another look, and the shortcut button is a quick easy way to make w/b changes and see the different effects on the LCD before you shoot.
