I don't think you can, but reading what I have read. It sounds like my p&s where you can change into different modes, but not directly change the ap, ss, or iso.

Yeah, I was concerned when you posted that you got that point and shoot...it's great for automatic function, but usually those little Power Shot cameras don't have great manual functions.

If the manual doesn't tell you how to do it...you most likely cannot do it.

This is the reason I replaced my PowerShot as quickly as possible!!!

if you're switching to another camera that can do it thats great Smile
when I started the camera I had (well dh had) was the Canon A70. Granted I couldn't push it to what I wanted but I am so happy I have it (and know how it works). I took ds to a live show for his bday and I didn't want to use flash, auto without flash looked horrible but thanks to what I've learned I was able to get some decent pics in M mode Smile

yay for switching soon Smile
