I know what you mean, but left it on full "auto" for a while, studied the manual, tried all kinds of settings only to find I'm absolutely happy with the camera on Auto, 8MP, Extra.

I think I've forgotten all I studied in the first months of owning my 8800, but continue to get great close ups and tele shots on Auto. At least I think so !

I also love this camera and was a little overwhelmed at first. If you only shoot in full auto and are not going to use the cameras features you probably bought to much camera for your needs.

When I first got the camera I would experiment with a different fearure every couple days or so. For example, I would just go into the backyard and shoot my daughter running or playing in S mode(shutter priority). Then I would try to shoot a car driving by and try to freeze it.

Next time out I would try A (apperature) or one of the scene modes like macro and take some pictures of flowers or whatever.

Once you have played arround for a while it really is pretty easy to find what you are looking for.

The more features you learn to use the more you will love this camera:-)
