Default Best ZR1 Settings

I just received my zr1 camera today for my wife. What are the best auto settings for this camera? I need to set this up for her so she can just take pictures. She doesnt mess with any settings.

Thanks

i personally don't use the iA mode, i just use the regular camera mode. the default picture style should be good for most scenes. really not much in the way of settings here on this camera, its pretty much ready to go out of the box.

i would at least teach her to use the exposure compensation button. in brighter sun, this camera does better with a little negative exposure comp, and its easy to teach that one.

What about face recognition?
What is the optimal mega pixels to set at? I typically go lower so i have more room for video. Right now I set it to 5M.

i never use the face detection personally. and i always use the highest megapixels, as you never know you may need to crop and print, etc. and right now memory cards are cheap.
