Just bought this camera today and still overwhelmed by the whole thing. Just wondering if anyone has a quick settings guide for this camera? I.e quick settings that can be done to get quick decent shots without in all of the various modes

I agree with kirby. I have read so much about the other creative modes and how to use/experiment with then and 1/10 time it works out, but since i am still very new to this i tend to put it in P and just mess a bit with the ISO.
That has produced great images for me at least.
Every once in a while I will mess with the Av setting on stationary object (I am too slow still to capture any other subject with it), but P has been my savior so far
