I'm alittle new to this. Can you tell me what the difference is between P mode and S mode? Which is better to shoot indoors for lighting like concerts?

P stands for Programed Auto, and S stands for Shutter Preference. For existing light photos like my sample I let the ISO setting determine the shutter speed, so for me the P or Programed Auto Mode is my preferred mode.

Sounds like I should use P also until I get better at judging what shutter speed to use. Thanks

Here is the Sony H-50 at ISO 1250 at F 3.2 at 1/100th on the shutter which is pretty demanding for no flash/existing light.
