P is basically full auto, but it displays the aperture and shutter settings while shooting and allows for things like AF mode selection, AF point selection, Drive mode selection, ISO speed selection, etc.Originally posted by: pontifex
i read in a photography magazine that beginners to dslrs should shoot in P (i think its program or programmed mode). any particular reason why?
It's all in your Canon manual.
I'm thinking they say it's good for beginners because it still has the crutch of full auto, but is kinda sorta more customizable.
