The Program Mode is something that I like to use a lot. It’s pretty much what I use for almost every picture. You can just turn your mode dial to P. P stands for Program. The reason why I like the Program Mode so much is because it gives me more control than the Auto Mode but it seems to be just as easy to use. What I mean by that is I have control over my ISO. I can set this however I like. I’ve control over my Exposure Compensation. I can set that how I like and to have control over the White Balance which is very, very important to getting more accurate colors and I also have more control over my Flash which is also very, very nice because I don’t like using Auto Flash. I prefer either turning the flash ON or OFF.
The Auto Mode will automate everything and with this mode what I can do is as you can see turn my ISO to auto so this will automates the ISO but still I have control over White Balance, so it really gives me total flexibility of what I want to control and what I don’t want to control. I can also set the White Balance to automatic but then it’d be pretty much just like using the Auto Mode. The other thing with the program mode is that I can have my focusing square right in the center which is great. I can focus on the subject that I want to make sure it’s going to be my focus point. Press the Shutter button halfway. Hold that focusing distances, recompose the image while my button is press halfway and then press the Shutter release, the rest of the way to take the picture.
So this is a very, very versatile mode and that’s why I like using it so much.
