In this course, photographer and author Ben Long details the features, controls, and options in the Canon 5D Mark III digital SLR. The course begins with an overview of what a digital SLR is and takes a tour of the camera's basic components. Ben then discusses the camera's basic operation: changing lenses, navigating the menus, shooting in automatic mode, reviewing and managing photos on the camera's LCD screen, and transferring photos to a computer.
Next, the course introduces more advanced exposure options: program mode, exposure compensation, ISO adjustments, and more. After Ben briefly defines each option, he shows how to adjust it using the camera's controls.
Ben also discusses white balance options, advanced metering and autofocus controls, flash, live view, and video shooting. The course ends with a chapter on maintenance, including sensor- and camera-cleaning and care tips.
You can manually create and manage folders on your Mark III using, from the first screen of the setup category here, the Record function and card/folder select command. I come in here -- you've seen this before -- this is where I chose the card I wanted to record on, but I can also create and manage folders. If I come down here and select Folder, I see that I'm currently shooting into the folder 100EOS5D, which has 16 images in it. I get the thumbnails of the starting -- of the first and last images in that folder.
I can, if I want, come down here and create a new folder. It tells me it's going to create a folder called 101. I can say OK, and now I've got two different folders, and I can select which one I want to start shooting into. So I'm going to select the second one, and now any images that I take will go into that folder. So if I'm trying to stay organized during a shoot, if I'm shooting a couple of different subjects, and I want to be very clear on where that dividing line is between the two different subject matters, I can create separate folders, and shoot into those and add some automatic organization going on, even before I get back to my computer.
