    Having used my old Fujifilm for years, but I consider myself a newbie. Recently I bought a Canon Kiss X and look forward to obtain more techniques. I want to begin with the P mode on my camera. Could anyone please spend a minute and make me clear how/when to use the P mode effectively? What is it best for (landscape???)...Thank you all for any teaching.

    P = Program adjust that shutter and aperture, personally I like using program mode as a starting point and then using the dials to move up & down in EV or bracketing. What mode do you have the light meter set at? Most likely it’s set to full frame averaging.

    There is no one typical answers other that learn your camera, check the histogram and bracket to your liking.
