The auto-mode on the Cannon A620 is probably the most uses mode as with many visual cameras. However, I prefer not to use it and I’ll tell you why because it really limits your options.
The auto-mode is right there. As you know, this is auto and if I turn this on and I’ll show you the back here. I’m going to press the function button in the center here, to find the function menu and as you can see, very little is available. I can change the timer. I have the drive mode here so I can choose timer, ten second or a custom timer and I can change the resolution and the quality of the pictures. The quality there is the resolution but that’s pretty much it. I have no control over white balance, over ISO over exposure compensation or metering and so I usually prefer using the program mode. Change the mode dial to the program as the P and then in that way.
Once I press the functions button again, you can see now all the options are available to me and I can control them in any way I want. I have the ISO setting, here is the white balance. Here is the timing mode again and I can do a continuous—there you can see that, that’s a continuous drive mode and many other options are also available. So personally, you can go ahead and use the auto-mode but I do believe that you’ll get much better pictures and much more flexibility when you use the program on them.
