I just purchased the W10. Have read the manual but haven't really had time to play with the camera. I am still not clear why anyone would use the Green Mode. The manual suggests this is for "easy picture" taking. That's fine with me in a point and shoot. But I can't figure out how to push the maximum quality in this mode over regular P program mode. In P mode I get 322 pictures with a 1 meg SD card set to best quality. Setting Green mode to the highest quality gives me 645 pictures. Since I want the best photos, is there any reason to use Green mode?

Also, and this may be really supid since I haven't had time to download a picture and it may not be an issue, but the date and time appear on the lcd in record mode. Does the actual picture get a time stamp (which I don't want)? If so, how would I turn it off? There is nothing in the manual about time stamps.

Thanks,
Eliot

I uploaded a photo to my computer and see that there is no time stamp. Still interested in anyone's thoughts on Green mode.

It's really an idiot button - no matter what mode it is in currently if you hit green button it reverts to point-n-shoot mode with average quality. Good if handing to someone to take your picture or a total newbie user.
