Hello, I'm not sure where this post should go. I've purchased a Canon Powershot SX10, 10.0 pixel. Totally new at taking photo's. Ive read the camera guide, but I'm so confused. It doesnt explain acronmyns for AF, AEF, etc. I just want to start by taking photo's of family members and special events. Indoor and out. Could anyone give me the basics. ie., LMS, Superfine, Fine, Normal, what does the pixel range mean. . Thank you.

The best way to get up to speed is to pick up a copy of "The Digital Photography Book" - Vols 1 & 2 (3 if you want) by Scott Kelby. Another good one is "Understanding Exposure" by Bryan Peterson. These forums are another invaluable source of info. As far as acronyms go: http://www.wonderfulphotos.com/artic...eras/acronyms/
