    P.rogram A.perture priority S.hutter priority M.anual P+M are pretty much self explanitory A means you control the aperture and the camera controls the shutter and S is the opposite. The ISO setting is to set the light sensitivity of your sensore the "film speed" if you will the higher the number the more sensitive to light your camera is but this will also cause noise in your image. I hope this helped some.

    Read the manual. Kodak manuals and camera layouts are among the best in the industry. It is really worth your time.

    As for maintenance, there really isn't any, short of keeping it clean. (esp. the lens) Buy a microfiber lens cleaning cloth for that. Once in a while, use an old toothbrush to get some of the dust out from between the nooks & crannies.
