Jim - it's a lot of trial and error for me. I would definitely recommend staying away from EZ, although it's better than digital zoom, 3MP is still pretty low. I typically have my camera set to saturation +1, contrast +1, sharpness +1, noise reduction -1. I usually start with ISO 100 and adjust depending on how my shots come out. I rarely use higher than ISO 400. I also toggle between spot and center weighted metering. I also found that dark pink is the hardest color to capture, for some reason.

Jim, as I said, it's a lot of trial and error. I try different settings and often take 10 to 15 shots of one subject to see what comes out best.

Jim you can also try the auto bracketing on the P setting, always works for me in difficult situations. Read up on it and it becomes second nature after a while

Settings are a matter of personal taste. Testing is free (well, sort of). Make changes to the settings and shoot. Then, upload the images, select your favorites and check the EXIF data to see how the camera was set. Then keep those settings. No one better than you to decide whether saturation should be 0, +2 or -1, etc. Some folks like well saturated images. I prefer more natural looking. So, don't be afraid to make changes to your camera settings. In the old days, it was a pain doing that because you'd have to carry a little notebook and write down the settings for each picture taken. The EXIF data eliminates all that.
