    I don't use my camera all that much. What's the difference between the normal mode and HDR?

    It takes a series of shots with different exposures and then combines them together to create the best exposure for that picture

    Auto

    Oh, seems like a good thing to use then. That's a good difference there. Do you use this as your default camera or just in certain situations?

    No I usually use auto. I did however turn on HDR and then saved it as a preset so I can quickly enter that mode. HDR works really well in certain situations, like my example

    Has anyone else experienced shutter lag after adjusting the lv mode? I mean the photo is shot where I want it but the shutter is delayed a good second.

    Great HDR tip! I also noticed that you can then rearrange the order of your camera modes and presets. I'll likely never use "dual shot", so I moved HDR up in the que.

    Anyone here played with manual settings to deal with overly exposed or washed out sky on a bright day? That would be nice to save.

    also, any suggestions for SPORTS settings?

    In most all situations, like the one you describe, I have used HDR with great success.

    For sports I would maybe go into manual mode and adjust the shutter to the fastest setting, so you can capture movement without blur. Try that out and if it works well, save it as a preset

    I am not familiar with photo settings. I have tried the fastest setting but it gets really dark. I have also not found the correct setting to compensate foe the darkness at high shutter speed settings

    For action, sports, pets, and kids, it's best to shoot on manual while outdoors.

    You have two choices on manual.

    1) adjust the shutter speed to 1/250 of a second or higher, and let the camera adjust the iso for a perfect exposure.

    Or

    2) set the iso to 200 for bright sunlight, 400 for morning or late afternoon sun, and let the camera choose the shutter speed.

    This won't work well in dimly lit places like inside your home... You'll notice it will turn out dark as you are not letting in enough light to give a proper exposure.

    In dim places, just try iso 800 and hope that the shutter speed is fast enough to capture the subject with minimal movement. Iso 1600 is great in a pinch, but has way too much noise for anything but an emergency.
