    1) what shortcuts do you put along the top when you open the camera app? By default, settings (the gear/cog) has to be at the top left, but flash and self-portrait are at the top right and can be swapped out. If Settings is 1 and the very right slot is 5, I've got:
    1- Settings
    2- Exposure Value (up to -2.0 to +2.0 light/dark)
    3- Scene Mode (e.g. sports, outdoors, Pets, food, etc.)
    4- Flash
    5- Resolution (# of Megapixels)

    2) I was thinking of using Auto/White Balance, and the colors are clearly different when using AWB vs. say daylight, but I'm jsut not that big of a photographer to care. Then there's also other settings like Shooting Mode and ISO, but again, I've ended up never using them.

    3) any easy way to reorder the settings the way they appear in the settings drop down menu? For example, I'd like the settings that appear on shortcut "taskbar" to be at the very bottom of the dropdown menu since I already have quick access to those. I've also tried reordering the items by left to right, top to bottom, but they don't seem to correspond with the way they appear in teh dropdown menu.
