A2300 no manual mode/forced flash?
I'm a longtime user of Canon's small Elph (and Elph-like) models. My latest, an SD1200 IS, is on its last legs, so I went to Best Buy today to see what to get as a replacement. I don't need much, and was attracted to the A2300. I didn't have much time to look, but it appears the darn thing doesn't have a manual mode. I only saw that new "Smart Auto" setting on there. Is that possible? I fish a lot, and you have to switch these things to manual mode in order to force the flash to stay on (say, if you have a sunset behind the subject but still want to illuminate the subject). So without a manual mode or another way to force the flash, I simply can't buy it.
Like I said, I only looked at it briefly. Can anyone out there let me know what the deal is?
