Metering Modes and AF Area

When to use and how to use them? Im still quite new to photography and havent really learned much about them. Ive had a couple shoots here and there, but I left the AF area and Metering modes alone. What do you guys prefer when it comes to both of them? Is there an ideal set up or does it change in different situations. This is just an example, if I were to shoot on a sunny day, what would be the best set up for both? If you guys check out my photoblog, some of the pictures come out decent, while others don't. I'm guessing its because I wasn't controlling the AF and it focused on unwanted things? Check out my photoblog and leave me some tips and comments. I'll take them into consideration because it'll only help me become a better photographer. Here's the site: [URL]

Point and Shoot Cameras

I'll be leaving to the Philippines on the 18th, and I want to snap some photos of my vacation while I'm over there. Also, I just want a camera for everyday use for photography in general.I sent my old camera to my cousins in the Philippines, so I think its time I upgrade. I use my cousins DSLR cameras from time to time for car shows or photography in general, but thats just not me. I love photography, but owning a DSLR could get pretty expensive,(ie: lens, flash, etc). So I'm in the market for a point and shoot camera. Im not trying to spend more than 400$. The camera that's on top of my list right now is the Nikon L110 which runs around 250$ - 300$. Has anyone had any experience with this? Any inputs or comments would be helpful. Thanks.
