As far as I know you can change Exposure -2EV to +2EV and Aperture F2.8 - F5.6 .
And you can also choose 4 or 5 focus ranges.
Am I wrong?

Yes. That is right, but you can not change shotter speed, and that is most important for me.

Bu the SCN have already pr eprogramed different shutter speeds. I mean, as far as I know what each one means.
I am not a professional photographer, I don't need a hi-end professional cam. I am looking for a hi-end consumer cam.

Yes. You can set fast object (SPORT mode) and that is 1/250 shotter, night, night portret, landscape, and all of them use predef/auto shotter speed. You can do nothing about that. But if you want to use SPORT mode indoor that you can not use LCD because it is too black because of shotter speed (1/250) and you have to use optical viewfinder. Another problem I found when I use optical finder (OF) is: When I zoom in view does not match "OF" and LCD. "OF" take pict about 0,5m turn to left.
If someone can try on because I need to know if it is on my P12 or it is general error.

About professional photographer. That's me. Now, my choice would be Canon A-70 (3MP), or A80 (4MP).

No, generaly, Sony is not lying, BUT...
In most indoor situation it set max 1/50. And if you use zoom than it is even lower (1/8).
You can get over 1/1000 only if you point on the sun. And that is not what makes me hapy.
So, buy a CANON.
I have P-12 and I am not satisfied.

Thanks for the answer;now I'm one more step closer to making my decision: Whether I buy a Canon or a Sony.
I've heard from everybody that quality of pics taken with a canon are better than sony's, plus you have manual controls which you dont have with sony. BUT; Canon ( A80 for example) is much bulkier than a Sony (p-10 or 12) and it does not have the "continuous movie mode" which sony has... Now can you help me with that???

Note: I'm not a professional photographer , maybe I wont use many manual controls; but ı will use the cam for 4-5 years which makes me want to buy the best one in p-10, a-80 price range.

is there any other way we could look at the pictures ajan?
The links do not work I suppose.
So you say the only problem with sony is the fast objects,and indoor shots; there is no any other problem??
