The "best settings" depends on what you're shooting and the conditions you're shooting them in.
That said, I would recommend that someone new to photography start with "automatic" mode. Then, if you come across a situation where automatic mode doesn't do well, switch to the mode for that situation. e.g. Sports, Landscape, Portrait, etc. Then, if you come across a situation where that mode doesn't do well, come back here (and ideally post an example pic) and ask which manual settings might work better in that specific situation.
HI all I am so new to this camera I just got it and I know nothing about camera's... I need some help in regards to understanding the camera. I can read the manual but do not have a clue what they mean with the settings. lol
So does anyone know what the best settings are for video and pic's?
