    I'm borrowing a camera at the moment... It says "FinePix, Fujifilm, S602" on it.. do'nt know if that's helpful or not. Its a digital. That's all I know about it. Anyway... I'm wondering if someone can give me some very beginner information...

    What is ISO and what do you use high ISO for and what do you use low ISO for?
    What is white balance for?
    What does Photometry mean
    What does Auto Bracketing do?
    What does positive and negative flash numbers mean (ex: +0.3)

    I don't have a user manual or anything that is for the camera... and I'm just used to a point and shoot small one that already has everything set up for different things. oy.

    ANY help would be greatly appreciated. :hail:

    Thanks! - Amber
