I am just trying to learn everything I can about manuel mode. I understand that some things cannot be set ahead of time, but I am wondering about the things that can. So if you know any of these please let me know. I want to get the best possible pics that I can out of this camera. Then maybe when I learn what I am doing, I can justify buying something better. Af Mode : Single, Monitor, or Continuous (And what does it mean?) Digital Zoom : Smart, Precision, or Off Red Eye Reduction : On or Off Expanded Focus : On or Off (What does this one mean?) Flash Sync: Front or Rear (What does this one mean?) Steady Shot: Shooting or Continuous Conversion Lens : (I am assuming this one means if I have an extra lens attached) Sharpness: Normal,+, or- Contrast: Normal, +, or - Metering Mode: Spot, Center, or Multi I kinda understand Aperature, Shutter Spead, and Iso, but feel free to give me any pointers. Some of the pics I see on here are just amazing, and I hope to actually do this professionally one day, but I have to learn first. Thanks!
