The Sony H-5 does indeed have an "Auto" Mode. And it really does do a good job. Of course, it does an even better job with photos,in the P for Program mode. In large part, it is a matter of really learning all the "in & outs" of the Sony H-5 camera.
All in all, it is a very capable camera and can produce really GREAT photos. For example, please take a look at this H-5 no flash, hand held photo.
