Canon SD400 vs SD500 - more scene modes?

Looking for an ultra portable camera. However I am an amateur and not
too familiar with manual settings, so multiple scene modes appeal to me.
The SD500 is bigger and more expensive, but offers 4 additional scenes.
Living in Michigan, these extra 4 - beach, snow, foliage, fireworks
seem useful to me.

My question is this: Does anyone know if I can, or what manual settings
to use to replicate these scene modes if I bought the Canon SD400?
(Since it is my understanding that scene modes are just pre-programmed
manual settings?) I really don't need the extra MP, cost, or size of the
SD500. Thanks.

It's hard to tell because Canon's manual does not explain specifically
what each mode does. Personally, I'm not a big fan of Canon's scene
modes. I tried them out with my SD200, but in the end, I just use the
manual mode.

For an amateur, you can pretty much do most of the manual compensation
you need with the exposure compensation setting and forcing flash
on/off. I don't think it's worth spending an extra $100+ and having a
bigger camera just for the extra 4 scene modes.
