Legend:

AP  Aperture Priority - The ability for the user to choose an aperture on your camera then shutter speeds will automatically change by the program in the camera to provide a correct exposure.  This is commonly know as "Auto" on many cameras.
SP  Shutter Priority - you choose a shutter speed and the camera's electronic program will choose the correct aperture.  The aperture will still be wide open.  Needed when you want a specific high or slow shutter speed.  If the shutter speed is in the viewfinder there may be warning of over or under exposure and sometimes shutters slower than 1/30 a second.
MM  Metered Manual - Sometimes known as "Needle Match"  This allows you the ability to have the camera's light meter tell you when a shutter and aperture setting are correct for that light reading.  Many "basic" camera courses require you to do this.  This teaches you the logic of a meter reading  and the different shutter/aperture choices you can have for that same photograph.  Depending on the camera, how you do this, is a needle in the viewfinder needs to overlap another needle. Some have matching lights in the viewfinder.  Have both lights (one usually flashing one solid) overlap for a correct exposure.
P  Program - This camera has some sort of electrionic "brain" that can choose the shutter speed and apeature for a correct exposure.  Some cameras have two programs, some three.  The common ones are "P":  This chooses an average between the shutter speed and aperture.  "Pc" - This program chooses a smaller aperture for larger depth of field for more "Creative" shots but slower shutter speeds (to make up for the less light).  "Pa": This chooses a faster shutter speed for "Action" at a wider aperture.  Remember, with 400ASA or higher film in bright situations there may be very little difference with Pa and Pc programs due to the high shutter and small aperture needed to correctly expose the film.  So unless you have 1/2000 or 1/4000 of a second these last two mode may only change aperture or shutter speed slightly.
EC  Exposure Compensation - This is just fooling the light meter to think your film is slower or faster for a few shots. This allows you to get better exposed pictures if you are in very bright sun (beach or snow covered ground) or dim area (heavy shade or flat lit subjects).  Actually all cameras can do this.  If you have ASA 200 film and want 1/2 a stop more light, turn the ASA meter to 150ASA.  A full stop more would be 100ASA.  This works in reverse too.  Remember to return to the correct ASA speed during normal picture taking.
ST  Self Timer - This can allow you to be in the picture (with a tripod) or for long shutter shots (1/15 or slower) and will take some of the shake from your hand pressing down on the shutter.   Manual self timers have an arm to push down (once down, only pressing the self timer release button will release them and fire a shot) and you will hear a buzzing as the gears wait to release the shutter some 15 seconds later.  Many cameras after the early '80s have electronics ones. A front "red LED" will blink, just before the shutter fires the LED will blink faster.  Some of the electronic ones have 5 and 15 second lengths.  The CP-9AF and CP-7m can be set to varying lengths.  These two models have Interval timers that can set a time between frames automatically.  These two can wait up to 1 1/2 hours between shots and then fire with automatic exposure or set off a long exposure.
HS  Hot Shoe - Most cameras have one on top of the pentaprisim. This allows a flash to mount on top of the camera and a center contact allows the flash to fire.  Many cameras have extra pins on the top to allow dedicated flashes which provides more functions such as TTL flash.  This type of flash measures the flash "Through The Lens" allowing just the image going on the film to be read by the camera's meter.  This helps in many instances as extra light reflected back to the flashes "electric eye" can be fooled by close objects or not enough reflected light due to other subjects being too far away.
DOF  Depth of Field Preview - the ability to shut the aperture down and view (in a darkened viewfinder) what is in focus.
MLU  Mirror Lock Up - A few expensive cameras have this function.  This will lock up the mirror so when using time exposures or slow shutter speeds with long lenses the mirror won't shake the camera as it flops up, out of the way to allow the film to be exposed.
EL  Exposure Lock - This great feature allows you to get an exposure of an item and then move further away from the subject and not allowing the brighter or darker surrounds to change the exposure. This is great with zoom lenses.  Zoom close and get the reading and lock it, then zoom back.  Normally you press a button to lock the exposure while still maintain pressure on the shutter button until you fully press it.  One the shutter is fired, the EL is removed.
