Hi, I own an old (vintage 2005) Canon PowerShot SD400 that I bought used\na few years ago (with no instruction manual) and I'm not too familiar\nwith digital cameras. I was hoping someone in here could recommend the\nsettings in the menu window for just an average photo taker.\n\nYou can familiarize yourself with this particular camera here:\n[URL]http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/SD400/SD4A.HTM[/URL]\n\nI'm mainly interested in knowing the best settings for:\n\nShooting Mode -\nExposure Compensation -\nLong Shutter -\nWhite Balance -\nISO Speed -\nPhoto Effect -\nMy Colors Options -\nCompression -\nResolution -\n\nI don't want to do anything fancy, just have the optimum settings to get\ngood pictures.\n\nAlso I wanted to ask about the memory card in this camera. Currently it\nhas one that says "SD Memory Card SDC-32M" with a big "32" beneath that.\nShould I buy a bigger memory card for this camera? I took some vacation\npics recently and after I took about 12 pics it said the "memory card\nwas full" (do the "Compression" and/or "Resolution" settings have\nanything to do with this?)\n\nAlso, is it best to just set the auto-flash feature to "on" and leave it\nlike that? This means the flash will only activate when it's needed,\nright?\n\nOne final thing, how does one turn the self-timer on and off for this\ncamera?\n\nTIA for your help.
