Something that John isn't directly saying is that the manual controls tend to
be on the high-end digicams.  Lower-end units don't have them.  Most of the
mid-range units don't either.  Mine has manual controls as well, and was
manufactured in late 1999 or very early 2000.  So, the manual control option
has been around for a while.  It's paying for it that's the problem.
