Simple Photography Cheat Sheet

With everything I've been teaching myself lately, it's hard to keep everything straight!  I searched online for a simple photography cheat sheet I could put in my camera bag, but everything was too much info, way above my head, or written for DSLR users.  I decided to make my own, simple photography cheat sheet:
I made it small enough so that it only takes up 1/4 of a page (small enough to fit in my camera bag).  I put only the info I need for a quick glance.  This cheat sheet is based on my camera's capabilities however I'm sure it would translate to other point-and-shoot cameras as well. 
What would you put on your cheat sheet if you made one?  Leave a comment here or discuss this question in the Mommy's Camera Community on BlogFrog.

You are so cute. I love it! I still have issues getting out of auto mode, so maybe having something like this as a reminder would help me branch out!

You are good!

We got something VERY similar to this when I took some photography classes. Of course it's on 8.5x11 paper. I guess I could shrink it.

I'm glad I found your blog. I'm needing some photography inspiration. Hopefully in the full I'll be enrolled in another six week photography course. I'm ready to take creative protraiture.

I dropped my camera off at the camera shop on Friday to get the sensor cleaned. I'll pick it up tomorrow and hopefully have time to shoot some new pics.

Have a great week!
