I was referring to the section starting with "Choosing a Focus Mode" ... in the PDF it starts on page 34 actually - here's a link directly to the PDF - I am afraid I don't know where my paper copy is.

OK...I tried a few shots with the single box focusing. I really need to take some shots of inanimate objects but the birds are my favourite thing to shoot...I've just been playing today, and I'm getting shots that I actually like! I know there's room for a lot of improvement, but I LOVE this camera!!!

The PDF instruction manual is more detailed than the manual that comes with the camera so page numbers may not be the same in the PDF as in the manual. You will find the Super Control Panel very useable. You can change many things all from one screen.

I definitely like the second blue bird photo from above.

We visited friends yesterday(involved a 2hr drive), and I took quite a few scenery shots along the way in landscape mode. They were rather dull. It was a cloudy day, so maybe that was the problem. I tried out one of the art filters, and got these which I did keep... because they were different. The first is a beaver house. I wasn't terribly pleased with the shots though. I'm going to download the PDF manual today, and have a look...I've just been using the enclosed manual. Super control panel? Will check it out.

When shooting up close the single box is ok, but the more refine box works better.

Here is the Steve's Digicam sticky on how to get it set up. Well worth the time to set it up.

I seem to always set it up and then lose it somehow, and it takes me forever to remember how to get it back again when I'm out there.
