In Program mode, the only decisions that the camera makes are shutter speed and aperture. Everything else -- autofocus mode, drive mode, flash, white balance, ISO, and more -- can be changed by you. What's more, through program shift, and exposure compensation, you can alter the camera's initial shutter speed and aperture choices, and that means that you have a good amount of manual override, without ever changing out of Program mode. Program mode is probably were you'll spend the bulk of your time shooting.
To change to Program mode, I just press the unlock button on the mode dial; rotate to the big P. We're going to be spending the rest of this chapter in Program mode, learning all of its ins and outs.
